Our climate & Air conditioning
At Inchcape we are blessed with the most perfect climate Barbados has to offer and therefore most of our units do not need and don’t have air conditioning. Only the 1 bedroom apartment Tower has A/C in the bedroom and so does House Sunset downstairs in it's master bedroom, but that does not mean that it is needed.
Just in case we should have an unusual hot day and the trade winds should not be doing their job, we have fans in all our units.
The Inchcape houses and apartments are located on the most southern point of the island and the cooling breezes of the trades and our proximity to the water provide for a very pleasant climate, never too cold and hardly ever too hot. For those of our guests who wish to use the air condition in Tower or Sunset downstairs, a $ 15 US charge will apply for a 12 hour usage 8 pm to 8 am. For usage beyond 8 hours the charge goes up to $ US 25 p. day. The usage of the air condition is strictly limited to being used while the guests are inside the room (not inside the apartment), with the corresponding bedroom door closed.
In-House Barbados Info
We offer our own in-house up to date brochure of current information on where to shop, sites of interest and proper behaviour in typical Barbadian situations. This information makes you a Barbados insider from day one.
Furthermore a yearly updated book about Barbados, 'The ins and outs of Barbados' is provided in each rental unit to help you find out what to do and where to go.
For those of our guests who should be in the need of medical attention we have set up a connection with Dr. Michael Brown, an english doctor who made Barbados his home many years ago. He is a guarantee for the best medical service, can be visited in his practice during the day or reached on his cell phone after hours. His services also include house visits at Inchcape when required. You will find his phone no. in Inchcape's in-house brochure.
Our big ocean-front garden with a huge hammock and garden furniture is waiting for your relaxation. Inchcape also provides an ocean front storage facility for all kinds of windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing equipment which allows for proper storage.
Thus your equipment will be ready to go whenever conditions are right.
Parking space is available for each house right on the property.
Managers and staff members, on the compound and/or off site are available to assist Inchcape's guests with a very special personalized service at all times.
Inchcape is positioned strategically very well and the infrastructure is great around Barbados' most southern point: Apart from restaurants and shopping in walking distance, all kinds of activities are offered...

We do not have a pool, but there are other hotels very near by, from walking distance to a few minutes by car, which offer the use of their pool and facilities to non hotel guests. Some might require a small fee.
A strong point in Inchcape's services is our close relationship to a couple of car rental companies who provide a very special service for our guests. We reserve the car for you and it will be delivered shortly after your arrival and picked up again when returning the car.
Whether you require the services of a hairdresser, a massage therapist or an acupuncturist or a yoga teacher, we have selected highly qualified specialists who are prepared to provide their services on site at the Inchcape Seaside Villas.
