The Port St. Charles area is rec­og­nized as the pre­mière Caribbean marina and there is no doubt as to why. This 22 acre exclu­sive resort and man-​made marina, located in St. Peter has indi­vid­u­ally fur­nished lux­ury vil­las on the water’s edge, avail­able for pur­chase or short or long term rent­ing, with many of the prop­er­ties hav­ing berthing sta­tions for yachts. In total, Port St. Charles has about 156 indi­vid­ual con­dos, with free WIFi, free wired inter­net and DVD play­ers. Other room ameni­ties include air con­di­tion­ing. Pre­mium TV chan­nels, free toi­letries kitchen and pri­vate bath­room, with house­keep­ing avail­able on a lim­ited basis. For those with chil­dren, babysit­ting or child­care ser­vices are provided.

Within this pres­ti­gious resort is a first class restau­rant called La Mer located at the Yacht Club, var­i­ous bars, and also a gym and yoga classes/​instruction for the ideal relax­ing expe­ri­ence. Dur­ing your expe­ri­ence at Port St. Charles, you can relax at any of the 2 out­door swim­ming pools, or just chill out at the marinas.

Not to be out­done is the white sandy beach at Port St. Charles. Beach umbrel­las and sun loungers are pro­vided for guests, for the per­fect par­adise island feel. It is hardly ever busy, mak­ing it ideal for tan­ning, swim­ming, snorkelling and other water sports.

The unique nature of Port St. Charles is epit­o­mized by the fact that is not a mere villa resort and trop­i­cal par­adise for vis­i­tors, but it also serves as an offi­cial port of entry into Bar­ba­dos, with per­sons from immi­gra­tion, cus­toms, coast­guard and the police sta­tioned here. Many vis­i­tors to Port St. Charles often arrive directly by pri­vate yachts and heli­copter, high­light­ing the exclu­siv­ity of the area.

The Port St. Charles Yacht Club described by many guests as “sim­ply par­adise”, offers a full ser­vice bar and restau­rant to its patrons. The meals are all of inter­na­tional cui­sine pre­pared by a world class chef, and are served in an open air set­ting. With noth­ing by spec­tac­u­lar views around, sit on any of the deck loungers and enjoy a nice tan. While your room/​villa will include a kitchen, the menus at the yacht club will con­vince you that you won’t need to do too much cook­ing while on hol­i­day (cook­ing is a chore within itself, so who would really want to cook while on hol­i­days any­ways). Fri­day evenings will also see enter­tain­ment pro­vided in the form of the world famous band, Fire and Ice.

So whether you are inter­ested in pur­chas­ing one of the lux­ury vil­las or just expe­ri­ence a dif­fer­ent type of stay out­side of a hotel, Port St. Charles serves as a great home away from home.

Tri­pAd­vi­sor Reviews

“Hol­i­day of a life­time” — Cats_​in_​hats

url 5
A beau­ti­ful loca­tion, with stun­ning prop­er­ties and won­der­ful staff. Would rec­om­mended to both fam­ily and cou­ples for a either a quiet retreat or that once in a life­time fam­ily hol­i­day. The houses are large and dec­o­rated to a high stan­dard with en suites for every bed­room. It’s like a home from home with a large and fully equipped kitchen. Not to men­tion views of the Mar­i­ana and a water taxi on call to take you to the beach or swim­ming pool. Also very close to Speight­stown and Moon­town which are also great local (min­i­mal tourists) and hon­est areas to eat, drink and shop.

5 star home com­fort” — mantatelur3

Booked 8 nights here. The apart­ments are well appointed in terms of com­fort, décor and equip­ment for self-​catering. The resort is very much a millionaire’s play­ground, with accom­mo­da­tion over­look­ing a lagoon where yachts and high class boats are berthed. Apart­ment 344, ben­e­fits from both sea and lagoon views (one bed, king size). Do con­sider hir­ing a car if decid­ing to stay here, as Speight­stown is a good 10 minute walk for shop­ping or eat­ing out. Would def­i­nitely return, as this was such a relax­ing break a great escape away from the hus­tle & bus­tle that some resorts are known for.

“Beau­ti­ful Accom­mo­da­tions”– Rosann C

We spent 3 nights at Port St Charles in room #345. The view was beau­ti­ful, and the 2 bed­room accom­mo­da­tions were out­stand­ing. The prop­erty is close to many of the best restau­rants in Bar­ba­dos and located on a beau­ti­ful beach. We would def­i­nitely stay there again on our next visit.
