Coral Cove 5 Shutters - Beachfront, Barbados West Coast

Our luxury apartment is located in the beautiful Coral Cove condo situated directly on the beach -we have great views of Caribbean sunsets over the sea.  There are three luxury interior designed bedrooms, three high quality bathrooms, an open-plan kitchen/lounge area which has slide away doors onto a balcony which stretches the whole property.  The property has been interior designed to a high standard and we endeavour to keep adding new items - recently our new deep seating sofas; Barbadian original artwork from Speightstown gallery and Best of Barbados; new bedroom furniture inspired by Coral Island interiors; and a Cafetiere coffee maker.  Built-in air conditioning is in all rooms.

Albert who has been at  Coral Cove for 14 years  maintains the beach area in front of the building - there are ample sunbeds and umbrellas .  There is a cordoned off safe swimming area which is sandy throughout.  Slightly further out is the best area in Barbados to swim with turtles and there are often two or three boats anchored there (see photo) with people snorkelling.  The turtles nest on the beach.  We have seen loads of tiny turtles scampering down to the sea. They had to be caught by the turtle people for safer letting out at night. If you don't want to swim out as far as the turtles then there are reefs either side.   There are cool boxes for taking out onto the beach or alternatively, there is a small beach bar which does wicked rum punches and surprisingly good fried fish, spring rolls, wedges etc.

Coral Cove itself was completed in 2008.  It has 14 apartments - not a massive development.  Shutters has one parking space which is easily accessed via drive thru electronic gates.  It has permanently manned security who cover both the condo and beach chairs.  Access to the condo areas is by security code.

The balcony consists of a lounging sofa area, a dining table for 6 .The balcony is a perfect height - high enough for a great view and just below the leaves of the palms .The ample space is the icing on the cake and makes our condo very special with a great spacious feel.

Shutters has three good sized bedrooms.  The master bedroom opens with sliding doors direct onto the balcony.  It has ensuite granite bathroom with two basins, large bath and walk-in shower.  It has a walk-in dressing/wardrobe area it has a super king bed .  There is a flat-screen cable TV.  The second and third bedrooms are at the rear of the condo with shutters out onto the landing area.  The second bedroom has a queen bed and en-suite granite bathroom with two basins and walk-in shower.  The third bedroom has twin beds which can be converted into a king and has the bathroom with walk-in shower adjacent.  New fluffy pillows have just been delivered.

The kitchen area has high specification fittings newly installed in September 2022 - There is a separate room for the washer/dryer. It's great to be able to cook up a meal while chatting to people in the lounge area and the balcony.  You don't really need a barbecue here - the kitchen feels as though it is part of an outside area.  The lounge area has two good sized sofas and armchair, flat screen cable tv with a decent package including ESPN which has English Premier League, Apple TV (for use with your own iTunes account, also provides access to Netflix using your own account for loads of movies and NFL) we have B&O remote blue tooth speaker .  It has wifi which works really well and has a booster to cover the beach area - much better than a shared hotel connection - for facetiming/skyping family back home.
