Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Silver Sands - Blue Ocean Cottage

It's a Cottage of 7 different Apartments and Studios in a unique location...

The Cottage design has been conceived to offer our guest a big and brighter open space and also to let them enjoy the very pleasant oceanic breeze constantly present in this part of the island. Blue Ocean Cottage is located in Silver Sands area in the South of the island of Barbados and it is formed by 7 different apartments of different dimensions and positions. All of them are with dining / living / kitchen area fully furnished, bedrooms and private bathrooms. The entire area is surrounded by a wonderful garden rich of Palm and Banano trees, vegetation and flowers; it has a fence around the property and security video cameras. At the ground floor in the back side of the property there is also an external shower and between the 2 units there is a covered condominium washing machine which is possible to use it at a small supplement. In front of the property there is also a big parking area.

All the Apartments are next to the stunning Silver Sands Beach at the southern tip of the beautiful tropical island of Barbados. Being the easternmost of the windward Caribbean islands, the tropical heat is always tempered by the constant gentle north-easterly Trade Winds, cutting down on mosquitos and making Silver Sands one of the best spots in the world for windsurfing and kite surfing.

Blue Ocean Cottage provides a unique combination of fun and relaxation: suffused by the immediate beauty, peace and tranquillity of a palm-fringed paradise; yet close to the buzz and excitement of great clubs and restaurants at nearby St. Lawrence Gap.

Blue Ocean Villa, Yellow Bird Apartment, White Coconut Studio, Sea-view Apartment and Green Garden Apartment are perfect for wind/kite/body surfers who want to enjoy world-class surfing at Silver Sands beach or Silver Rock beach; lovers who want to laze on tiny unspoilt coral white sandy beach; anyone wanting to de-stress and get fit.

Local wind and Kitesurfing Informations: This island is a windsurfer's and kite surfer’s mecca. It’s one of the best windsurfing spots of the world. East and North-east winds are constant during the entire year and with them they bring great waves for jumping or riding them with a kite or windsurf board. The incredible spot’s number aloud all levels of wind-kite surfers to enjoy this magic place. South Coast is better for experts, professionals and people who are starting to move on the reef. West coast is better for beginners.

The water temperature is unbelievable, 26°/28° C warm and constant all year round. During the period of November and June the Trade winds start to blow constantly and between December and April the conditions are absolutely perfect with a very high percentage of strong and constant winds mostly in January and February. The best spot is absolutely Silver Sands beach!

About Owner

NOT many words to say... our guest reviews reflect how we are and what we do. We wait for you in our little portion of Paradise!

Why Owner chose Silver Sands

If you love the wood, something unique, special, charming, in a particular quite area... this is the right property to be! Because this is the only Cottage of the entire area, made by a French architect with a Bajan engineer with a unique style; it's managed by italian people with an experience of more than 20 years in the tourism industry. The Blue Ocean Cottage has mosquito-nets in all the apartments and most of the furnitures are italian; some apartments and studios have also the air conditioning with independent splits. There is a big parking space in front of the property; The Cottage is very very clean (it's a must for us) fully equipped and the ocean sound is sweet and not so strong as it is in properties which are to close to the sea. It's an absolute secure place, all fenced-in with security cameras and the owners live inside the property

What makes this apartment unique

Breeze place, very close to the ocean (70 meters), with a close bar and restaurant, bus stop and little grocery. Unique white thin sandy beaches around (Silver Sands, Rescue Beach, Silver Rock), no traffic at all, not too many constructions around. It's still a wild spot and place where you can even admire monkeys, parrots, hamming birds, whales and turtles.

A Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

What a treat. We were warmly greeted by our hosts Stefano and Elisabetta. The location was great, peaceful plus with a terrace overlooking the Carribean Sea. A good sized bathroom, two bedrooms, a kitchen with all that you could want, and area for dining plus did I mention….. a terrace over-looking the sea. A good restaurant within a 1 minute walk plus, if you are a surfer, the sea is literally in front of the cottage. My family are from Barbados and were as impressed as we were. I definitely will return.

Blue Ocean Cottage was a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks and had a great holiday. Clean apartment, as described, in a lovely setting close to the sea. We were a party of 4 and we enjoyed the spacious living space and balcony where we had most meals. There was always a breeze and it was so lovely to look out at the sea and to be able to walk along the coast and enjoy the beauty of the place. Stefano and Elisabetta were very attentive and went the extra mile to try to meet our needs (bought a DVD player when they saw that we had lots of DVDs with us) Great WiFi. No hesitation in recommending this property. We enjoyed Silver Sands as a quieter location and as non-surfers. With a car it was a good location from which to tour the island. Close to Oistins for more major food shops and the Friday fish fry.

Owner's Response: Hello Nan, we are really very happy that you enjoyed your stay in Blue Ocean Villa, which is for us a very special and unique apartment. It's great to know that you appreciated also all our efforts to be close to you and to satisfy all your needs, which is our main business, but the best satisfaction for us is also to have guests who really loved the Cottage and leave Barbados with a big smile and at the same time a little teardrop.... because they would not leave! We hope to see you again here or in your wonderful Country! All the best, Stefano and Elisabetta

Enjoyable and fun!!

  • 4 of 5

The "Blue Ocean Cottage" is a nice and cosy property close to ​the beach​. The unit #4 is the main ​unit ​​among the eight available for rental.

Close to the Silver Sand Beach, the ​unit # 4 ​​is at the second floor of a two story building.​ Situated ​i​n a ​​remote residential area compared to those located on the west side of the island​,​ where most of the tourists and hotels are ​e​stablished​. ​For us this was a plus factor​!​

The cottage has a spacial size veranda with a front view to the blue ocean.

Typical in that region, the wind is constant and predominant to one direction.​ ​It certainly helps to reduce any​ ​thermal ​discomfort ​cause​d​ by the sun and tropical temperatures.

Three different sizes of beach are​ accessible by​ walking from the property. The ocean water temperature, waves and sand are outstanding​!​

A car is a must not only because of the location of the property, but ​also ​due to Barbados island geographical characteristic and historical development.

​The cottage​ has​ a functional​ kitchen ​with equipment​s​ to cook​, but it does not provide a microwave. ​For those who can only rely on a microwave​for cook​ing​ might ​be an issue.​..​ ​It has also ​a safe box, sound system, fridge and freezer, dishwasher​ machine, gas stove and oven, BBQ at the veranda​ and a​ big table ​in the dinning​ room ​​for those who like a family re​-​union​. ​We​ were​ always eating outside on the round glass table at the veranda. The ​​washroom​ is good​ with shower ​and​ hot water.

The cottage offers numerous games, including cards, for entertainment among friends and families members​ at​​ the end of the day.​ ​

​Although the wind is constant and there are two ceiling fans at the living area​, we could not sleep without using the available AC ​i​n the two rooms.​ ​Additional ​fees was ​charge​d​ due to the cost of energy.

The flat screen TV is new but the cable device is a little ​bit ​trick​y​ to deal with, so you need to be very patient and maybe ignore ​it ​during your stay.​ I​deal for those who want to be disconnected​ from the world news​!​

The property offers as part of the rental an amazing fast WIFI connection.​ We were four, two adolescent​s​ fully connected​. There were ​NO LIMITATION ​in​ number of ​users.

We understand that the cottage is on the second floor and the two bedroom are located on a mezzanine inside the "cathedral​ ceiling​" style space. I will not recomm

Beautiful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a lovely stay at Blue Ocean Villa with our family of four. The apartment has two stories, is very well ventilated and tastefully decorated with a gorgeous view of the ocean.

It is well equipped and has complimentary wi-fi which works very well. There is a lovely "almost private" beach within walking distance.

Even though it might seem a little far from the "action" this was not a problem for us because we rented a car which one should do anyway as it makes getting to know this beautiful island easier. We enjoyed the fact that we were in a peaceful setting. If renting a car is not an option there is access to public transportation within walking distance.Owners Stefano and Elisabeta were very pleasant and helpful.

Great quite place near the best kite surfing spots

  • 5 of 5

Was an amazing trip, lovely people, gorgeous island, great location of the apartment, with a balcony facing the ocean and birds singing all day long, very quite (and in 10 min you can be in the city center, fresh sea food market and night life). Stefano is a really nice guy, was always very accommodating and helped me out all the times, with advice on places to see, with driving around to find centers to have car repaired at expense of his personal time, showing great surfing spots, etc. The apartment is spacious enough to accomodate 4-5 people and everything you need to do sophisticated cooking. Definitely worth staying and worth the price.
