A unique investment opportunity. This charming and popular ocean front hotel is located in the quiet and breezy Inch Marlow area, offering two ocean front buildings with 12 guest suites, and two garden buildings where 11 of the 12 suites also have ocean views. Peach and Quiet typically benefits from 100% occupancy however the owners are now considering selling the hotel to an investor who wishes to benefit from the hotels' successful rental history and repeat clientele.
Originally built in 1973.
The Loveridges bought the property in 1988 and set about extensively renovating and updating. The property has been re-roofed, re-wired and re-plumbed along with Sewage updates.
This naturally breezy strategic location lends itself for further developing water sports including Kite, wind and board surfing. An ideal centre for Yoga, Pilates, Dance, Art or Spa. Located just 12 minutes drive from the Airport (but not on flight path!) 7 minutes from Oistins, 15 minutes from St Lawrence Gap and 30 minutes from Bridgetown. Peach and Quite has won many awards for the property and continue to receive much free advertising from newspaper and magazine journalists across the world writing articles about Barbados lauding Peach and Quiet

Approximately under two acres is occupied for the hotel and the balance being a meadow and growing area for Veg, fruits, herbs, Car Park and Workshop area etc. Originally planning permission was granted for a further 40 apartments – although this permission is not up to date a precedence has been set
The property currently only opens December through to April and enjoys 100% occupancy for 4 of these months. Many repeat clients who like to book more than a year in advance therefore 2012/13 season is very highly booked already and requests for 2013/14 already coming in. Many guests are turned away as we fill so far in advance. There is a market for Summer opening too and again many clients are turned away as currently we wish to keep the place to ourselves.
The property needs to be taken to another level and a higher star Boutique Hotel. We do not offer Air Conditioning, in room Telephones, wi-fi, TV’s, phones or kitchens but a peaceful quiet spot to relax and unwind. Definitely a niche market. See the film on www.peachandquiet.com or google Hotels for sale Barbados and we are the 5th or 6th entry.
If the hotel is to be opened year round then possibly Air conditioning would be a good option to install as we do not get the Tradewinds much in Summer months. This would open up the American market more. History has shown our market to be approx 1/3 Canadian, 1/3 American and 1/3 British and European – a good mix so as when one market weakens there are others to ‘pull’ from. Clientele being predominantly couples - with a more mature age group staying longer – two/three and even four weeks or more - and the younger ones staying 7 to 10 days. In the past we found Walking holidays to be a good niche along with Yoga and exercise. Massage and reflexology services are offered either en suite or in the grounds also.
Peach and Quiet also lends itself for the setting for many events – unusual beautiful weddings, art shows, market places, retreats and the photo shoots for Neima
