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.

Fantastic beach front property for families

  • 5 of 5

Amazing vacation and Ocean Hollow was perfect for our family. We've been to Barbados twice and this is our second time staying at Ocean Hollow. The location can't be beat. We have small children and the gated in backyard made it easy to allow them to play in the sand, while we relaxed or made meals. And when it was time to hit the beach, you literally open the gate and are standing on a beautiful beach. Although you can't swim right in front of the property, about 100m to the North is the perfect swimming spot for kids. Right in front of Crystal Cove resort (all beaches are public and you commonly see locals swim here as well), is a little swimming area that is protected from any waves.

Chloe is a fantastic host who responds quickly and is very accommodating. We rented some items for our kids from a local company and she made arrangements directly with the company to be available for them to drop everything off.

The pictures are accurate, and the bedrooms are large. The style is a little dated, but everything works and we spent most of our time enjoying the beauty that is Barbados. We're already planning our next vacation.

If you want a little luxury to compliment a stay at Ocean Hollow, the Crystal Cove resort next door also offers day passes - the information is hard to find online, but it's $250 BBD for adults and half price for kids. It gives you access to the resort from 10-6. Dinner isn't technically included, but their 'Reflections' restaurant is open until 6pm and we had dinner around 5:30. The resort is gorgeous with 3 pools, water sports and fantastic drinks.

Home with Character

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay at Ocean Hollow... Close to beaches, groceries and a short 23 minute drive to Bridgetown... Awesome to wake up every morning and have a cup of coffee on the veranda listening to the ocean waves.. With a surprise visit from a family of monkeys. The sunsets were spectacular...❤️❤️

Excellent stay, everything as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay from Feb 10-21, at Ocean Hollow. A beautiful home with plenty of room for 2 couples or family of 4.

Bedrooms are large and well appointed. Kitchen is quite functional and well equipped. We hosted a dinner for 8 with no problems and plenty of room for everyone.

Property is tucked away well off the Main Street and has plenty of parking. The back yard is priceless with a beautiful patio, furniture for 8 and of course the Caribbean Sea lapping at the back step.

We did quite a bit of cooking ourselves, however there are plenty of resteraunts near by. Groceries are also nearby at the Massey and Jordan’s supermarkets.

Over all it was a great stay. We would highly recommend renting a car so you can explore the entire island.

Thank you Chloe for sharing your grandma’s beautiful home with us.

St James is the nicest spot on Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the house's proximity to Holetown beach bars and restaurants. The place is nicely cared for and well priced.

Good location! Beautiful views!

  • 3 of 5

The property had a beautiful view and was in a great location to venture out around the island which we did every day with our car rental. We are a family of 4- Mom and Dad, 17 year old son and 4 year old daughter. Chloe went out of her way to make our Christmastime visit especially sweet for our 4 year old including having a small table-sized Christmas tree up and decorated for Santa to visit. The beds were extremely comfortable and the house had all the basic necessities. Negatives of the property is that it's basically a split level in part so you have to use steps into the master bathroom which were a little scary for me and our little girl. This was also true to enter the den/dining/kitchen area and again to go onto the porch, again to get to the yard and again to step onto the beach. This was a negative for me as I am physically handicapped and I apparently missed this information when I reviewed the property. The steps are also concerning for small kids especially the bathroom. We were also startled early Christmas morning by some man violently beating on the front door repeatedly until we answered him and he stated he was collecting money for "old people". We've traveled all over the world and that was a first. We were securely locked in behind the metal gates on the front and back door and the windows but it was still alarming. I understand this is beyond the owners control but with the house set back off the main road it was rather odd. The mosquitoes here are significant so the idea of opening the front and backdoors for a breezeway were just not an option. Overall rating of Barbados for us was a B-. We loved the daily adventures and the views were beautiful. We enjoyed Bathsheba, The Animal Flower Bay (including the restaurant), the Flower Forest, Earthworks, Carlisle Bay, Mullins Beach, Sandy Lane, Speightstown, Holetown, etc. The food was extremely expensive even compared to Hawaii and the South Pacific and it was difficult to get reservations to a lot of restaurants because of the holidays although we travel every holiday. We don't revisit islands so we are thankful we were able to visit Barbados and overall it was an enjoyable experience for our family. Thank you Chloe!

Owner's Response: Hi Andy, So glad to have you spend your Christmas was us. It was a pleasure decorating the tree for your little one. I apologize if it was not clear that the house was multiple levels, as we thought the photos were suffice, but will make sure to include that in our description from now. In addition, we are also sorry for the interruption that you had on Christmas morning and contacted you right away and asked if you would like us to get the police involved, as that would be a first for us in terms of having someone trespass on the property. We are evaluating the house now and looking into some additional security. Thanks again for your valuable feedback, we are always looking for ward to improve our home.
