What we will do to keep you safe

While we always had high cleaning standards in the past, we have upgraded our standard cleaning protocols again to account for COVID-19. Another important part of handling the covid 19 situation at the Inchcape Seaside Villas is,  that we give it highest priority to our staff members being fully vaccinated.

We are closely monitoring and applying guidelines and recommendations provided by the Barbados Board of Tourism and also will apply international health guidelines created in consultation the World Health Organization (WHO) and other institutions world wide, who contribute with valuable advise how to keep our guest and staff as safe as possible.

Making tourist feel comfortable to travel again during this pandemic is a must for the entire vacation rental industry, By adopting these new cleaning guidelines we will reassure our guests that our vacation rentals are a safe places to stay for you.

The island can be very proud on how on the pandemic was handled by government and the people of Barbados who showed a responsible attitude and lots of patience and cooperation, which kept Barbados a very safe place to be during this ongoing pandemic

For those of the travel community who are looking for a safe place to travel to, Barbados and here especially our property, the Inchcape Seaside Villas, provide a very safe environment. Our studios and apartments all have their own private areas, which is the ideal situation for social distancing and living as to the new rules we will still have to live with for a while.

All arriving guests to Barbados who are fully vaccinated need to provide upon arrival an antigene / quick test done by a certified lab not older than 1 day or a PCR test not older than 3 days. Those who fulfill these requirements can enter Barbados without any {quarantine} restrictions. Private quick tests done at home will not be accepted.

All arriving guests who are not fully vaccinated have to go to a quarantine approved hotel such as our property and stay in their hotel room, studio, apartment and / or corresponding outside areas for three days until they have done the required test on day four after their arrival and have received a negative test result, before they are allowed to move around freely on the island.

Apart from the fact that especially our outdoor areas as terraces, patios and garden areas make us a preferred location for a quarantine stay, we also have put a system in place which makes our guests time during quarantine at the Inchcape Seaside Villas as convenient as possible. If requested, we help to organize delivery of groceries to the apartment before our guests arrival, assist with ordering meals to be delivered to them, and we also assist with organizing the Covid-19 tests (in case this applies).
Guest departing from Barbados needing an antigene or PCR test have various options of how to get it. The most convenient way to go is to have us book a VIP test for you which cost $ US 100 (antigene) / $ US 150 (PCR)  person. In this case the health inspector will come to your apartment and do the test at Inchcape and the results usually come back the same evening or the next morning. There are also other testing facilities available where tests can be obtained at way cheaper rates, from $ US 30 and up. 

We at the Inchcape Seaside Villas have put a system in place which makes a quarantine stay as convenient as possible. We organize delivery of groceries to the apartment before guests arrival and we also organize the second tests to be be taken after a guest’s arrival and make sure our guests get their results the fastest way possible.

In order to secure the safety and security of our guests and to be able to comply with Corona related protocols and issues no person from the outside is allowed to enter our property without registering with our manager on duty or at our office.

Resident guests must inform Inchcape’s management if they expect someone to visit. Permission needs to be granted by Inchcape’s management. Non resident guests need to register before entering our property.

Please contact our manager at rentals@inchcape.net for detailed information on how to deal with preparation for your stay with us.

We advise not to forget to carry some cash for taxis and local provision providers. And in case you wish to go for the VIP test you need to pay for it in cash US or Bds.

Wearing masks is well accepted in Barbados, obligatory in public buildings, supermarkets etc., altogether a very well controlled situation. We hope our input in combination with the info given on the protocols website will give you a pretty good idea about what’s up in sunny Barbados.
