Spectacular Views, Excellent Snorkeling, Amazing Sunsets, Ocean Front

Beachfront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
The location of Barcadere provides a perfect example of the Brac's beautiful and diverse shoreline. Located on prime West End diving/snorkeling location, a short path from the house leads to a small cove called the Barcadere, (how the house got its name) carved out of the molten lava rock by the Caribbean Sea. The cove is about 12x30 feet and 10 feet deep and is protected from the ocean’s waves. A sturdy aluminum ladder provides an easy entrance and exit for exquisite snorkeling, diving or just swimming for all ages. Two sea-pools surge in rhythm, each supporting a unique set of aquatic inhabitants, connected by underwater channels to the Barcadere. You’ll notice the sound of the shore itself, gurgling, softly resonating under you, literally breathing with the sea. The magic of this porous shoreline begins. To the west the expansive, easy to stroll solid rock shore leads you to a larger, wilder cove powering the blow holes where the seas are funneled under the rock to erupt in wave geysers, sometime 20’ high! Further on, the shore adds sand and shells for beach-combing, and then finally to a rare, natural pure sand beach where sea turtles lay their eggs each year.To the east the shore offers tidal pools and an easy walk to the cut, a man made inlet cut into the ironshore. Originally created to shelter boats, this natural saltwater 'swimming pool' is now used by swimmers, snorkelers and divers to access deepwater diving and snorkeling. Directly in front of the house, approximately 100 yards off shore, is the coveted dive site of the Captain Keith Tibbitts...a Russian frigate sunken to provide an exceptional artificial reef. It is only diveable Russian military sunken vessel in the Western Hemisphere. In addition, about 50 yards to the left of the Barcadere is another sunken vessel used as a diving/snorkeling destination, with an abundance of sea life, including sting rays, sea turtles and multitudes of coral reef fish.In the evening just sit back on the patio and catch the most wonderful sunsets you will ever see. Each one unique with the various tropical cloud formations that illuminate the sky in reds, pinks and purples until it eventually succumbs to total darkness, illuminating the solar system in a spectacular way. This special property is very handy to the airport, grocery store, gift shops, restaurant, bank, liquor store and doctors' offices. Like to explore? Go to the bat caves, take the parrot walk, find ‘Blackfoot’, our neighborhood iguana, check out the light house on the bluff where you might have a sighting of the brown booby bird, hike up and into Peter's Cave where islanders went to survive the great hurricane of 1932, or go to the recreation park just a few minutes’ walk from the house. The area offers an abundance of natural wonders sure to delight guests of all ages.The house has been privately enjoyed by our family since 1978. It has recently been completely refurnished and refitted to make your visit easy! The set-up is simple, you begin to unwind as soon as you cross the threshold. There are two small adjoining bedrooms on the ground level, and a separate large master suite with full bath and deck on the second level. The master suite has an outside entrance and is not connected to the downstairs bedrooms. A recently completed renovation of the master suite's ceiling has created a very wonderfully cool and pleasant living/sleeping experience during all the seasons. Our island born partner Derwin Scott meets your flight. The house is spotless, the linens fresh, the kitchen is equipped with all the utensils needed, connected to a great room with spectacular panoramic views.Keywords: Beachfront, easy shopping, private, swimming, park, sunset, view

Amazing Place
Great views. Checking out the tidal pools in front of the house was a way to end our day. We swam to both of the wrecks off the house. You can walk to the grocery store, liquor store, restaurants, and the airport. We miss falling asleep to the sounds of the waves hitting the shore.

Great time
We had two families of four, our youngest was 5. It was a great home to stay at, there was a perfect little tidepool that was protected from.the waves for the little ones and the big cove for us to snorkel in. The only thing that was weird, and we had to decide how to do it, was that all of the rooms, the doors went outside. It didn't break our stay though. We figured a way to work it out. It was a great location though, walking distance from quite a few places, but we did rent a car to see the rest of the island. We would definitely stay here again with a return trip and had so much fun on our vacation. The owner was quick to reply and answer our questions and the property manager picked us up and gave us a tour when we arrived. Thanks for the great place to stay! There is also an amazing porch. It was my favorite place to sit in the mornings, listening to the waves and watching the sun coming up.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location on Brac
Stayed at Barcadere many times! The absolute best location to stay on the island!
