About Chloe

This house is owned by my Grandmother Christine, but managed by me, her granddaughter. Granny was born and bred in Barbados and has a special love for collecting unique and special property throughout the isalnd. This property is one of her favorites and we are so happy to share it with you.

Why Chloe chose Saint James

The house has been owned and operated by our family for over 50 years. My grandmother has overseen countless renovations and updates and it is a property very close to our heart. It is a beautiful family home on an exquisite, private beach with the most beautiful blue water and white sand. Stay with us and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay in your house. We liked the fact that it was a whole

house with privacy and that it was very clean and comfortable. We loved

the fact that the kitchen was fully functional and that you had BBQ grill.

We liked the location and having the beach behind it. It was perfect for

snorkeling. The washing machine and dryer worked fine and so did the internet connection.





Thank you for all of the above.

Ocean Hollow is adequate...

  • 3 of 5

The biggest drawback to this place is that it has no screens in the windows/doors. There is a nice cross breeze if you leave the front door and back door open, but then all the mosquitoes get in. The only air conditioning is in the bedroom so shutting the windows/doors is not really feasible so we had to wear insect repellent inside all the time. No paper towels or dish washing liquid was provided, so you will need to pick those up at the store. There are no left over items from previous renters such as salt, sugar, etc. that you sometimes encounter in villas, so you will need to purchase everything. Kitchen items were adequate—glasses/dishes nice but some of the pots were a bit tired. Bedrooms/living room/dining room were fine. The back porch is nice and furnished with a dining area and a seating area. It has an outdoor shower outside near the sandy area. You can go through the gate and there is a tiny strip of beach, at least at low tide, then the ocean. At high tide the waves actually lap the wall. There is a public access path adjacent to the house, so there is a bit of foot traffic out back. To lock the front door, there are 2 locks on the door and 2 padlocks to lock the iron gate in front of the door which makes it a pain if you forget something in the house and have to go back in. There is a lock on the sliding door at the back and 2 padlocks on the iron gates on the back. In addition, there are a dangerous few steps in one of the bathrooms that were a concern.

The contact person, Chloe was extraordinarily helpful and responsive. All of our questions were answered with remarkable speed and charm.

We had a great time at Ocean Hollow and swimming at the Open Water Festival, but we would not rent this villa again, mainly because of the no screens issue.

It's a little piece of paradise...never get tired of the view, the sunsets every afternoon!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Hollow is an amazingly affordable gem on the west coast where the sea is like a huge swimming pool!! Except we can go snorkeling, swim among turtles and fish! We love this property not only because the beach and ocean are on our doorstep but especially because of the mature mahogany trees that shade it from the afternoon sun and when not sun tanning, can relax under with a book. The house has everything you need and the house manager Chloe is the best!

Private Beachfront

  • 5 of 5

Clean two bedroom villa on the beach. From the front gate of the villa, you can take a left to the sandy beach or take a right towards crystal cove sandy beach. You cannot swim directly infront of this villa due to small amd medium rocks, but its private, beautiful, and a good place to sit on porch and listen to the sea and the waves hitting the rocks. We walked up and down the beaches many times. Many small crabs in the yard and rocks to see. Turtles and fishes to see within a four blocks swim radius.

Villa came with all utilities, all utensils, AC only in bedrooms and living room hot at times. Fans in all the rooms. We kept all the windows closed after getting 95% of mosquitos out with citronella candels. Will need to shop for more toilet paper, bath soap and dish soap and any grocery items you need for the week. We ate at the roti den, el tiempo II, tamarind hotel, the lobster pot, the boatyard, De outback. Go to Carlie Bay if you want many sports activies and umbrellas on the beach: the boartyard offers this. Speightown is not far and has great quiet beaches and there is shopping there that is much more reasonable than limegrove which was expensive. It was a quite and relaxing week. Feels like true island living.

Cozy Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Ocean Hollow for an extended weekend, and had a wonderful experience. The photos posted do not do this place justice...very scenic spot, beautiful ocean views, very well kept place.

It was hard leaving, but we are sure we will be back again.

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay at.

Everything is close by. Located on the major bus route you can get on of off right outside the cottage on the street and most anywhere.

The cottage is very nice with everything needed for your stay. The owners stopped by to check on us to see how everything was and have the yard cleaned regularly. This is a great place for a couple or two, even a small family to stay.

The ocean comes right up to the gate access to the beach. Wonderful. We highly recommend this place for a winter getaway.

The property was very clean, modern and comfortable. The pictures didn't do a justice.

  • 4 of 5

If you are a beach person you do not need to leave this property. We walked the beach multiple times a day. There was a nice size beach for most of the day but when the tide was coming in it would go away. We swam right next store in the public swimming area, which was never crowded. The house had all you needed. Could have used a few more kitchen pans but we made it work with what we had. They don't supply dishwashing detergent so bring some from home as prices are expensive at the grocery store for the few washes you do while you are there. We used the washer and dryer as they do not supply many towels so you need to wash them. Our party of 4 had a fabulous time at this house and would highly recommend it to anyone. It's a quiet area with a lot of privacy. We grilled out on the patio most nights and ate outside 3 times a day, why wouldn't you with that view. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Bring mosquito repellent for sure. We brought a few citronella candles from home and those really helped out. Mike and Chloe were amazing to work with and were very helpful with any questions we had. We would totally go back!
