|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
The Green Garden Apartment is at the ground floor and is at the same time simple and very functional. It’s facing on the wild garden where can benefit from the luxuriant green and stay under the pergola to eat or enjoy the shadow and the fresh of the ocean breeze... maybe cradled by the hammock hooked-up to the coconut palm! There is a table with chairs, 2 confortable harmchairs and a small barbecue. The apartment is formed by a small kitchenette fully furnished with all accessories such as fridge, freezer, microvawe, stove etc.; in the living/sleeping area there is a stereo with radio, cd and Ipod/Iphone exit, mosquito-nets, ceiling fan, safe, wardrobe and 2/3 single beds. The 2 single beds can be attached to form a king-size bed. The bath-room is with shower. There is also an open air shower with warm and cold water. Child cot up to 5 years or 3rd bed is available with a small supplement. Free wireless connection available with also LAN cable connection. (can lodge 1/3 people)
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!
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!
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
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.
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.

Clean? Well-maintained? Good customer service? Woud we recommend...?
YES! YES! And YES!
We enjoyed our stay so much and would choose this apartment again anytime!
Stefano is an excellent host and there was simply nothing to complain about!
We're back home now for 2 days and really miss this place so much...
To everyone who will decide to book: you will love it. So we did and do!
Thank you Stefano & SEE YOU SOON :)
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!
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!!!!
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.
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.

I am not one to write many reviews, however, I was very pleased with my accommodations in Barbados. Stefano is an excellent host. When my flight was late, his driver was still there ready and waiting to pick me up. When I accidentally broke something in the apartment, Stefano did not charge me. The pictures are accurate, and the towels and sheets are fresh weekly. I recommend Blue Ocean Cottages to anyone interested in exploring Barbados. It is an extremely welcoming place. I hope you have a wonderful trip!
Blue Ocean Cottage is located Ocean-front 70 meters far from the water, near 2 great beaches: Silver Sands and Silver Rock made both of a white thin wonderful sand which are considered one of the best locations for windsurfing and kite surfing all over the world.
There are different wind/kite surfing shops and schools in the area, where you can have your private lessons or you can even rent your equipment.
Next Blue Ocean Cottage there is a Bar & Restaurant which is called Surfer's Bay, where you can taste the the local cuisine and drink the excellent local Rum and Beer in a splendid ocean front location! It's 5 Minutes drive from the town of Oistins and the fantastic fish-market where every Friday you can appreciate the fresh fish bajan style cooked.
Other Activities: Windsurf, Kitesurf, Surf, Sup, Snorkeling, boogie boarding, fishing and many others.
Golf: We have several Golf Courses 9/18/36 holes which are considered between the most beautiful in the planet ! 365 days of real games, championship and activities in the windy climate of the Bajan island....
