Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Christ Church - 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 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 Christ Church

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.

Fantastic 10 night New Year get away!

  • 4 of 5

What can I say?!

We had a blast, Stefano was hugely accommodating and the room was fantastic! After traveling the island we came to the conclusion that we were situated in the best place! We're not fans of the resort life and we like to have the option to cook and the kitchen was spot on!

If you're into Kite boarding (you would of heard of this place), sun lounging, and/or Surfing this is the place to be (there's a nice little beach to catch a few casual waves, watch out for the rocks though beach right! Or if you don't mind a 15 to 20 minute trek to South Point there's two decent spots, one for the short and one for the long).

Great spots to eat surrounds you at Surfers Bay and 'Oistens' is only a dollar away!

If I had only one bit of feedback, paying the holding deposit could have been easier, but I'm not that familiar with SWIFT transactions, but now I am.

I thoroughly recommend, Stefano and co keep a great spot and I would definitely visit again!

Enjoy!

My stay was excellent! The owner Stefano was very welcoming and accommodating. I had a comfortable stay in this attractively decorated cottage. Peaceful! No complaints at all. Walks by the ocean are breathtaking. I highly recommend this rental.

Recommendable!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice time in the white coconut studio! Stefano was really kind and helpful! He was still there to organize different things for us (car rental, tour with a catamaran...). In the studio you can find everything you need to have a great time. It was clean and well-resourced. Near the studio you can find a beach bar and you need just 10 minutes to the bus station. From there you can reach Oistins in a view minutes- you can find there everything you need (supermarkets, fish fry...).

Altogether we can recommend the studio!!!

White Coconut Studio - wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, I'd like to say a very big thank you to Stefano and Elisabetta for being such wonderful hosts / landlords! White Coconut Studio is spacious, modern and the use of Wi-Fi was much appreciated. The kitchen area is great (I just love cooking on gas!) with an ample fridge/freezer. I would recommend hiring a car so that not only can you get to explore the rest of beautiful Barbados, you can get to the local supermarket in Oistins and stock up on groceries. There is a large car park opposite the main gate to the apartments so no parking problems whatsoever. The bathroom is very spacious with a large powerful shower, bliss ! The studio itself doesn't overlook the sea, although you only have to step out of the door and walk along the balcony a few feet and there you have a lovely view of the ocean. Literally around the Corner is Surfer's Bay bar and grill, where you will be made to feel very welcome. The food is wonderful, especially the macaroni pie! Catch of the Day is usually out of this world too, the fish is so fresh of course, with Oistins (fishing village) so close by. I would not hesitate in recommending White Coconut Studio, I miss being there so much. Hope to see you again soon Stefano and Elisabetta xx

Peace and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a clean, cool, beautiful apartment that felt very much like home while we stayed there. It is located moments from stunning secluded white sandy beaches that are picture postcard perfect. The apartment has excellent facilities including a particularly well equipped fully functioning kitchen, which was imported from Italy. The shower is big enough for 2 people, with a powerful source of hot water - in fact the photos on the website don't do it justice.

Stefano and Elisabetta went above and beyond with their help and recommendations from a memorable trip snorkelling on El Tigre with turtles and through shipwrecks, to booking a gastronomic romantic meal on our last night at a restaurant called Champers.

There are cameras around the property, making you feel safe and secure, in an area that although lovely, is quite remote. There is a fantastic relaxed bar on the same street, where you will be greeted by an English owner, great food and live music - thankfully Stefano pointed us in the direction on our first night and in our 3 week stay we became regular visitors.

For the surfer in you (kite, board or wind) there is a beach up the road run by Brian Talma who runs a school for all types of surfing, however, if you want somewhere less busy that is even closer to Blue Ocean Cottage, the beach in front of the closed down Silver Sands Hotel, is quiet and perfect for a more experienced surfer or in my case sunbather. Beware though, there are no sun loungers, parasols or drinks waiters, but there are also no throngs of tourists, so it feels like your own personal beach, which is a pleasure.

From a transport perspective Stefano and Elisabetta recommended a charming cab driver called Rodney, but if you want to take the number 11 minibus it's 5 minutes walk away and goes all the way to Bridgetown - the 11 is definitely an experience not to be missed!

Blue Ocean Cottage is the place to stay if you want a warm friendly home from home, with peace and quiet. If you're looking for party central stay in St Lawrence Gap; this is the place to come to, for anyone that wants to unwind, spend time on untouched beaches and enjoy peace, quiet and tranquility.

We've been back a month, it feels like a lifetime ago and we both desperately miss it. Enjoy your time there, those moments are precious and will stay with you forever.

Thank you Stefano and Elisabetta for an amazing holiday you are lovely people and fantastic hosts.

Amazing Place to Hang Out

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the White Coconut Studio for two weeks in February 2014. Prior this visit, we experienced beautiful Barbados during cruise visits. These one day visits encouraged us to step out of our cruise ship box and choose Barbados as our vacation destination.

We looked on- line to find the perfect place to stay. We found the White Coconut Studio to be that place on the south coast of the island. We were not disappointed in anyway. The studio met all of our expectations, very clean, comfortable with all the amenities we needed. Stefano arranged to have us picked up at the airport which was a ten minute drive to Blue Ocean where Stefano greeted us and ensured we were comfortable with our new surroundings.

The first week we decided to use the bus system and walk abouts within the south coast. A short 5- minute walk up the hill to catch the # 11 bus, 5 -minutes Ostins and 15- minutes to Bridgetown. For walkers there is a path that goes past the Surfer Bar that leads to a coastal road, walking past beautiful homes that lead into Ostins it took approx. 45 minutes. In Ostins there is an IGA super market for all you grocery needs, and across the road there is the fresh fish market where you can buy fresh fish for your dinners. After our dinner at the studio we went to the Surfer’s Bar and Grill, a 2 minute walk for evening cocktails. Sunday nights there was live music, a great place to hang out at the end of a day.

Our second week, Stefano was so kind to arrange a car rental to be delivered to the studio and arrangements were made to take the car back to the airport for our departure. Stefano also put together a catamaran sail for the day on the west coast. Great time!!

With our new means of transportation, it was easy to explore the east, west and north coast and all points in-between. For the beaches, the Crane Beach and Bottom Bay Beach –most beautiful. Miami Beach in Ostins the best overall for swimming and shade. From our studio it was a 5 minute walk to Surfer’s Bay Beach where wind surfers and kite surfers come from all over the world to train for competitions- what an awesome site to see!!

Elisabetta was so kind to change our bed linen and towels every few days allowing us to use the washing machine and clothes line and Wi-Fi.

Thank-you Stefano and Elisabetta for a wonderful, quiet, safe, and secure home-base to experience an awesome Barbados vacation. Would love to come back and do it all over again.

John and Sharon
