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.

Very nice place, apartment clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

This studio is spacious with a doublebed room a bathroom and a small well equipped kitchen. There is a nice balcony close to the entrance with a table to have relaxing eating times and one table inside. The apartment is well clean and the owners kindly available for any information and support. Nice beach bar & restaurant 2 minutes by foot, beach and sea at 50mt. Surf centers in the area for gear renting. Silver sands park for jogging and open air fitness at less than 1mile.

I strongly reccomend this accomodation and I look forward lodging here in my next trip to Barbados!

Excellent stay at Blue Ocean Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the White Coconut studio and it was great. It was very clean, the shower was big and water temperature was very adjustable, and we also really enjoyed having a working kitchen since we tried to save money by not going out to eat every night. The only downside to the apartment was the lack of AC and for some reason the breeze would only come in the best if both doors (regular and screen) were open. But the ceiling fans helped and it was definitely manageable.

Overall we enjoyed staying on the south side of the island in a quieter, less commercialized area so the Blue Ocean Cottage was perfect!

Owner's Response: Hello Emily, thank you very much for you excellent review! We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our Blue Ocean Cottage and think that the White Coconut Studio is great! Concerning the A/C we are sure you saw that there is an independent unit in the bedroom which can be used if you may need at a night or day/night supplement, as it is specifically written in all our adverts including this one on Home Away. We met each other many times and asked you if you may need something, but every time during your stay you told us that all was perfect and that you did not need anything. Next time you will be back (as you told us) if you need anything, just let us know as we are here for you! Thanks a lot for being our guests, our best regards from the sunny island!! Stefano & Elisabetta

Lazy in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

It was great! Stefano arranged for Mr. Rodney to meet us at the airport. He was so friendly and even took us to a minimart to get some basic groceries before we even got to the apartment! Now that is service! The apartment was clean and well-maintained. There was an outside shower to clean the sand off after time at the beach. There were clothes lines and laundry facilities available, too. Stefano had information pamphlets available as well as his verbal knowledge - which was most helpful. We took the #11 minibus into Bridgetown several times - was way easier then driving and then having to park at car! Even though it was hot, there is good ventilation in the place and we were comfortable, day and night. We did a lot of walking up and down the coastline. Some of it is beaches and other parts are rocky areas with pathways between the beaches. We went to Surfer's Bay Bar, which was very close to the apartment, every day for Happy Hour - if not dinner, too. We could watch the sunset and enjoy a nice drink. We would recommend this apartment - for sure!

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!!!
