The Impossible Dream, the One That’s Maybe Not So Good

Here’s a picture of my husband’s and my impossible dream.  It’s an abandoned beachside hotel/resort on Barbados’ North Point shore.  Our taxi driver Ralph took us out there, and told us that the hotel had been abandoned and for sale for several years.  More like 10 years plus by the look of the crumbling walls of the hotel.  Yet it was one of those “wouldn’t that be cool” moments you have in your life, where you think “what if we bought it and fixed it and lived on this cliffside in the Caribbean the rest of our lives” moments.  But then reality of the money, money, and more money sank in, and we realized that the dream wasn’t maybe so good after all.  But every time I look at these pictures, it brings a certain thrill again.  Maybe this place is calling to one of you!  heehee  🙂  Slainte, LisaNorth Point Hotel, Fixer upper hotel For sale in Barbados for sale at Barbados Property Search

  1. As for me, I was willing to go in with you on the deal. You had me at living on the beach for the rest of my life. But like you the money, money, money got in the way. But then I was back in with thoughts of people go to old castles and forts every day…. hummmmmm… ok, wake up and back to the real world and work… hahahaha… have a blessed day

    • Another kindred spirit! 🙂 Doesn’t it make your world a little warmer to know that other people think like you in the world? 🙂

    • Yeah, we LOVED Barbados….much nicer than we had heard in the travel reviews as far as safety. We felt very safe and peaceful there. Beautiful island.

  2. Is the beauty and intrigue in the isolation of the remote location, away from the hustle and bustle??? If so, that is probably the reason that it was abandoned and forgotten. Resorts need people for that evil called, money, money, and more just to maintain the beauty. What is amazing is that it had not been taken over by the homeless.

    • The North Point is very, very remote, but the most beautiful part of the island. They have had some crime reported up there in the past; maybe scared away the tourists.

I welcome your thoughts...
