About the property

Blue Ocean Cottage

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 a big sink. 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 Stefano Porcu

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 Stefano Porcu 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you like windsurfing or surfing then this is the best part of the island for it. It is a very quiet part of the island and is a short taxi ride to Oistins Fish Market and St Lawrence Gap. Silver Sands resort is close by and you can get groceries and swim in the pool there or get a taxi from there. My host Stefano and Elsibetta had just moved to the island and are great hosts and made my stay just that much better. The food is fantastic on the island and the people are very friendly. I am definitely returning and can't wait to see the renovations that Stefano has done to the place.

Green Garden Apt Barbados is absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the Blue Cottage Apartments in beautiful Barbados. These properties are well-maintained, well-appointed and are in a beautiful area in Silver Sands / South Coast. The apartment was very clean, and linens provided. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a fabulous meal. The outdoor patio area was wonderful place to relax and cool off after a day at the beach, private secluded. This location is close to world-class surfing, kiteboarding, windsurfing and snorkeling. Beautiful ocean views. A shore seaside walk to the Surfer's Bay Grille. Oistens is also nearby for dining, shopping. Stefano and his wife Elizabetta are the most gracious hosts. They have always gone out of their way to make us feel welcome on the island. We have always enjoyed our time here and will be back again and again. This is a great rental property, all of the apartments are clean, safe, affordable, ideal for family / children. 5 Stars!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I travel a lot both for work and holidays and, to be honest, I don't normally write reviews about hotels and apartments where I stayed (I gues I am a little bit lazy...), however this time I am more than happy to make an exception as this place was simply perfect. And when I say perfect, I really mean it! Why? Here we are:

1) Location: no matter if you are a surfer, windsurfer, kitesurfer, you simply want to relax on the beach, enjoy the bajan culture etc. Silver Sand is probably the best location to visit from south to north, from east to west. If you stay on the west coast you might risk to miss the amazing east coast. If you stay on the east coast you might risk to miss the carribean side. Staying in the south of the Island you are exactly in the middle of the coasts. Perfect also for watersports and very close to the super famous oystin fish market (5 mins drive).

2) The flat was very clean, I have also really enjoyed the small patio outside and the kitchen is a proper kitchen where you can cook in the proper way, said by an Italian

3)Did the owner provide good customer service? The answer is no, they did provide an excellent customer service. Good is not enough to describe how Stefano and Elisabetta were helpful. They made my staying easy and relaxing. What I was looking for...I wanted to surf, they rented me a surf board, I wanted a car, they found a rental car for me, I needed the driving license permit, they organize it for me, I needed infos, they provided me with all infos I needed. But, most important thing, they always did that with a smile (which is quite important!)

4)I would strongly reccomend this place to everyone, a car is a must if you wanna see the several beaches on the island, but hey...would you go to barbados and stay only in the beach of your resort?

5)I was lucky as I had some amazing surf sessions first days then surf went a little bit down, but hey you can´t have everything, right? In front of the apartment is the beach for windsurf and kitesurf which may make you think it is too windy to enjoy the beach, but I was surprised how the wind was not annoying at all! Regarding restaurants, to be honest, my suggestion is to enjoy oistin fish market as much as you can. Restaurants are quite expensive in barbados and to be honest in most of the cases most of the money you pay are more for the location than for the food itself. Anyway, go there and find out yourself!!!!

Owner's Response: Buongiorno Matteo ed Alice! Per noi è sempre davvero un grande piacere ricevere delle belle recensioni dai nostri ospiti, ma la vostra le batte davvero tutte. E' anche vero che quando per noi si ha a che fare con delle persone simpatiche, educate e gentili come voi, il nostro lavoro è molto più semplice, il tempo vola davvero e questo commento ci lusinga e conferma che siamo sulla strada giusta per continuare a migliorare ed offrire un servizio ed un appartamento sempre migliore! Speriamo davvero di rivedervi presto e magari proprio qui al nostro Blue Ocean Cottage nella nostra piccola porzione di paradiso. A presto! Stefano, Elisabetta e Maya!!

A lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A great, well set-up, clean apartment near some lovely and almost private beaches. On the relaxed south coast the apartment is ideally located for some great surf, kite surf and wind surf spots (no car needed to get to them) and about a 30 minute walk from Oistins.

The owners are more than happy to help - from initial contact to leaving at the end they will sort out anything you need (transport, recommendations, advice etc) but let you enjoy the privacy of the apartment and terrace.

Overall, a lovely place to relax and enjoy Barbados.

Wonderful Stay at Green Garden Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Green Garden Apartment for 10 days. We had a wonderful time and just loved its location. A few minutes walk to the bus stop (passes every 5 minutes). Woke up to birds singing every morning, no traffic noise. Stefano and his wife were always happy to give us a hand or reserve excursions and car for us. They suggested the El Tiger catamaran trip, it was out of this world. The best excursion I have ever done. I can't wait to go back, thanks Stefano for everything.
