St. James, Barbados, September 2006: Vacation life just doesn’t get any better than the ease, comfort, convenience, security and elegant style of the residences at Schooner Bay. Overlooking one of the most magnificent beaches on the West Coast of the island, Schooner Bay condominiums offer vacation rental guests unsurpassed quality and elegance.

Schooner Bay is located only a short walk from Speightstown, where one can discover a fascinating range of historical buildings and a town rich in culture and restaurants. Port St. Charles Marina luxury marina development is also in Speightstown, offering the allure of boating life and evoking the historical maritime commerce that is part of Schooner Bay’s identity.

Location aside, Schooner Bay is a top notch luxury residential townhouse and apartment development that is unrivalled. With accommodations ranging from one bedroom to three bedrooms, one experiences the highest standard of marble flooring, coral stone finishes, designer details, and spacious covered verandahs looking out to the lush, tropical gardens, free form communal pool, and panoramic Caribbean views. All residences are fully air conditioned and offer walk-in closets, luxurious decorator details, and airy, tropical interiors. Daily maid service and 24-hour security are provided, and additional services can be arranged with an on-site manager.

Says Janis Gordon, Marketing Director for Altman Villa Rentals: “Is it even possible to feel more relaxed on holiday? Can you imagine going to the World Cup Golf matches by day in December and then returning home to cocktails on your covered verandah, looking out to your family in the pool and your spirit soaring over the expansive Caribbean? Can it be possible to feel more relaxed? This beats hotel vacationing hands down … your own apartment, in a resort type setting, with space to spread out and ultimate privacy.”
