About the property

Blue Ocean & Sweet Jewel Apts.

Blue Ocean Cottage and Sweet Jewel Apartments are located in Silver Sands area in the South of the island of Barbados and they are in total 12 different apartments for dimensions, furnitures, expositions and prices.

All of them are with dining / living / kitchen area fully furnished, bedrooms and private bathrooms. The 2 entire areas are surrounded by a wonderful garden rich of palm trees, vegetation and flowers, with a fence and they are monitored by security video cameras. In front of the properties there is also a big parking area.

The Cottage: Blue Ocean Cottage is located next to the stunning Silver Sands surfing 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 mosquitoes and making Silver Sands one of the best spots in the world for windsurfing and kite surfing.

Blue Ocean Cottage and Sweet Jewel Apartments provide a unique combination of fun and relaxation: suffused by the immediate beauty, peace and tranquillity of a palm-fringed surfer’s paradise; yet close to the buzz and excitement of great clubs and restaurants at nearby St Lawrence Gap.

Emerald Palms Apartment, Sea-view Apartment, Tropical Gecko Studio and Two Palms Apartment are perfect for wind/kite/boogie surfers.... who wants 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.

Emerald Palms & Sea-view Apartments: Emerald Palms Apartment is located at the first floor while Sea-view Apartment is at the ground floor. Overlooking wild and beautiful Silver Sands pasture where you can glimpse green monkeys and tiny Yellow Breast tropical birds. Both Emerald Palms Apartment and Sea-view Apartment can accommodate between 1 and 5 people.

Tropical Gecko Studio and Two Palms Apartment are located at the ground floor of Sweet Jewel Apartments in front of the ocean which is just 80 metres far. Surrounded by green lawn, Coconut Palms trees, flowers and Hamming Birds it's the perfect place just to relax and recharge yourself!

The Location: 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. The incredible spot’s number aloud all levels of wind-kite-surfers to enjoy this magic place.

The water temperature is unbelievable, 26°/30° C warm and constant all year round. During the period of November and July the Trade winds start to blow constantly and between December and April the conditions are absolutely perfect with a very high percentage of 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!

Stefano Porcu purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Stefano Porcu chose Silver Sands

If you love the wood this is the 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 from italian people with an experience of more than 20 years in the turism industry. The Cottage has mosquito-nets in all the apartments, and most of the furnitures are italian too; 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 closer 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.

8 jours magnifiques

  • 5 of 5

Accueil très chaleureux, arrivés avec nos 3 filles un dimanche fin après-midi, Elisabeth et Stefano se sont rendus disponibles allant jusqu’à nous emmener faire quelques courses pour notre premier dîner. Encore merci Eli :)

Logement parfaitement propre, chambre spacieuse et ventilée. Une vue superbe sur l'océan pour le petit déjeuner.

Toujours prêt à donner le maximum pour rendre le séjour le plus agréable possible, attentifs aux passions de chacun d'entre nous (un grand merci de la part de Charlotte qui a pu assister avec joie à la baignade matinale des chevaux de course à Bridgetown).

Location possible de matériel de sport (surf, funboard...), du très bon matériel. Merci à Stefano pour les planches de surf.

Superbe sortie en catamaran sur les conseils d'Eli.

Que de supers souvenirs en famille, un pur bonheur !

Au plaisir de vous revoir

Lydie et Stéphan, Charlotte, Zoé et Lilou

Excellent place to stay! Get a feel of island life!

  • 5 of 5

Just a beautiful location with a great view and constant relaxing sound of the ocean. We stayed on the second floor & could not have been more pleased with our accommodations. Stefano & Elizabetta were great hosts, very kind & friendly. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

Absolute Peace

  • 5 of 5

Open air breeze, the lulling sound of waves, sun-dretched mornings with local roosters crowing - it was heavenly. I walked to the local store to buy dried goods - beans, rice, spices and used the well appointed kichenette, complete with cute little cutting board to prepare my first meal. It was a blast staying at the Tropical Gecko. It's a surfer's dream - being so near the ocean, away from tourists, and a part of a local community. The owner was super attentive, hard working (sweeping, tidying up, offering support) and very pleasant. I left feeling like I'd gained new friends and a true home away from home. Looking forward to returning...

Exactly as described in the website.

  • 5 of 5

The Enerld Palms property was exactly as described on the website, location superb with beaches and surf bar within easy walking distance. A great locationfor surfing and kite surfing within 5-10 minutes walk.

Easy drive to Oistins,Airport and Bridgetown,

Within the apartment the balcony provided the ideal place to relax, to take in sea views and sounds, perfect for morning and evening dining.

The apartment was generally well equipped and comfortable with everything needed to enjoy long or short stays.

There were some features of the buiklding that would benefit from maintenance works, e.g. the windows which were showing their age and were difficult to open, thus denying the ability to benefit from some of the cooling breezes within the rooms. Stefano confirmed that this item was under review, with estimates for remedial work currently being obtained.

Managers Stefano and Elisabetta were exceptional and could not have been more pleasant and helpful, both went a long way to enhancing the experience of our month long stay. Delightful.

Thoroughly recommended as place to get away from it all and relax.

Stefano and Elizabetha are the ultimate hosts they look after your every need. They are so welcoming and hospitable it makes Barbados so accessible. Beautiful Property far enough away from the centre of town to feel like your on your own private island but Close enough to any and all amenities, great bar 1 min walk overlooking the ocean, as well as great restaurants just 10 min away by car. I do suggest you rent a moke (small car) to get around on. Stefano has a range of sports equipment to help make Barbados as energetic or as lazy as you like. I have stayed here twice in 2 years and will be back year after year.

It's also 180 meters far from Rescue Beach, 210 meters far from Silver Sands Beach and 520 from Silver Rock Beach.

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.

Near Blue Ocean Cottage there is also Surfer's Bay which is Bar & Restaurant, where you can taste the local cuisine and drink the excellent local Rum and Beer in a splendid ocean front location! 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.
