'Simply stunning' are words that do not do this luxury apartment justice . Overlooking the beach and Caribbean Sea on a half-mile stretch of sandy beach. Just 30 seconds from the fine powder white sandy beach, Ocean Blue is a modern two bedroom two bathroom apartment that can sleep up to five people. Nestled in a lush oasis of coconut palms, Ocean Blue is on the Glitter Bay Estate which is built in Mediterranean style with beautiful lush gardens and a tropical freshwater pool. The property benefits from a large terrace that overlooks the beach and Caribbean sea and is located in the first building which is closest to the sea and is virtually on the sand. This elegant comfortable apartment is well furnished and is equipped to an unusually high standard for a rental property. It comes with its own dedicated housekeeper. Quite simply it is everything you could desire in a beachside 5* hideaway and is perfect for a honeymoon, romantic getaway or family holiday that you will never forget. There are comfortable sun loungers with mattresses and parasols by the pool and on the beach. Glitter Bay offers all the amenities one would expect in a top class resort. There is a large pool, kid's pool, tennis, gym, table tennis, day time bar and restaurant. The concierge will help with restaurant or tour bookings, they also run the daily beach towel service. With a friendly staff, some of very long standing, the resort exudes an old world charm and is known by many families as the most perfect destination for children.

Amazing apartment in a stunning location
Ocean Blue is a stunning apartment with fantastic views. From the huge comfy bed to the soft towels and well equipped kitchen, games and books, great housekeeper and helpful concierge. You can see the sea from the bed in the master bedroom and the balcony is luxurious. The kids loved the ‘sea trampolines’ you could swim to and jump off; then you can snorkel the other end of the beach and see some great fish. We even saw turtle hatchlings one morning, and a monkey sat in the tree. There are some amazing restaurants nearby (NOT cheap but fantastic service and you can watch the sunset ) and you can book boats and water sports on the beach too. The pool was lovely and warm and big, and at the end of August we had it almost to ourselves nearly every day! A holiday of a lifetime!
Thank you for such a great review.
But what is most important is that you did have a fantastic holiday. I am glad it all went so well and that you felt everything was comfortable and that Chauntel looked after you so well. She is undoubtedly very popular with the all the guests and it is lovely to know that she is there to take care of everything and that there is nothing to do when you come home from a long day touring round the island or a day at the beach.
As you have given us a five star review we sincerely hope we will be able to welcome you back again in the future. Please do contact me again if I can help, and remember all returning guests receive a discount when they rebook.
Fantastic Holiday in a fabulous Apartment and Resort
We have just returned from a 10 day stay at Ocean Blue in Glitter Bay. We had an amazing time! The Apartment is beautiful and what you see in the photos is exactly what you find on arrival. There were 5 of us in total and we found the apartment to be luxurious, spacious and have everything we needed. I loved sitting on the Terrace early morning just watching the sea, there is no better way to start the day!
Penny was so helpful from the start of our booking to the end of our holiday. It was also lovely to have Chauntel the Housekeeper look after us, she is so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the apartment was always spotless.
As for the resort, Glitter Bay really is a treasure trove. It has all the facilities of a hotel but we found it much more relaxed and peaceful. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We took advantage of hiring a barbecue one evening, it was set up close to the beach and they made sure we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble. The bar area is also a great place to watch the Sunset.
The beach is amazing at Glitter Bay, so clean and has floating pontoons and some good snorkelling. We also found it to be more spacious compared to other stretches along the coast. There is also a system where you are allocated sunbeds on arrival that remain yours for the whole duration of your stay so never an issue with having somewhere to lay.
There are lots of restaurants fairly close by but would thoroughly recommend The Cliff Beachclub, Lonestar, The Fishpot and Spago's Italian. There is a also large Supermarket which we walked too (about 20 - 30 mins) and it has everything you could need but would suggest a taxi back.
We were lucky enough to take a Boat Trip during our stay and snorkel with Turtles which is an experience that we will never forget.
I cannot recommend Ocean Blue, Glitter Bay or Barbados highly enough and would love to return!
Thank you for choosing to stay with us.
I am so glad you all had a great time and that you found everything to be perfect... just as I promised.
Thank you for your kind words as it is very important to me that guests do have a wonderful time. Holidays are important and if you pay for something it should be right.
I do hope we can welcome you back again another time.
Really an almost perfect stay for our family of 4. Both girls, ages 11 and 13 had a great time. Beach was quiet. Location couldn’t be better. Condo was perfect. Our second time to Barbados and this visit was outstanding. Only negatives, which are out of control of condo was the cigar smoker in nearby unit, and loud music on the first Friday night from the Fairmont. Not deal breakers for us, and we highly recommend and would stay here again.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and I agree it is bad news when you have someone who smokes nearby. I personally discourage smokers from booking the apartment as I think it's really anti-social.
Thank you for giving us a five star rating, we have an unblemished record and I have been renting for thirteen years. We do try hard to please as I understand how important it is to have a great holiday.
We hope to have you and your family come back to stay with us again.
Beautifully furnished apartment in an ideal location. We really enjoyed the sunsets from the verandah and hearing the sea. Would definitely recommend, one of the nicest places we have stayed - and we have been to Barbados many times.
Chantel the housekeeper says you where super guests, so I do really hope we can welcome you again. Always great to have considerate guests.
Glad you enjoyed the apartment and the resort. Glitter Bay is a very relaxing place and I am glad you are taking home happy memories.
Its very important to us that our guests enjoy the apartment and we do try hard to please. I hear we had a problem with the safes, so I am sorry you had the inconvenience. I understand the problem has been rectified.
We just returned from a week here and can't wait to go back! Penny has an incredible, luxurious place she is sharing. Chauntel makes you feel at home and is so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our chats with her.
The location is perfect and the estate grounds are just beautifil. Tony and his team at Glitter Bay keep things top-notch and gave us the VIP treatment.
Not having to worry about finding beach chairs each morning was great; Rocky took care of us for sure. The beach isn't "private"; but, it sure feels that way. The beach was very clean and the water clear and calm. We couldn't have found a better spot.
We thought we were lucky when we saw a fresh turtle nest one evening; but, that was nothing. The next evening, we watched a turtle lay her eggs. What a great experience! The green monkeys on the property were an added bonus.
We had lunch a few times at the on-site restaurant and everything was very flavorful and good. Of course, the beachfront setting is beautiful.
If you want to stay at a luxurious apartment, where great restaurants are close by, with the feel of a private beach club and welcoming people, don't hesitate to stay at Penny's. You'll enjoy your stay and be like us...longing to return less than 24 hours after departing.

You have kindly give the apartment the most amazing review, however the best thing is that you had a holiday to remember and took home some great memories. We really try hard to exceed guest expectations and I am so pleased you have such a lovely time.
Hurry back, we love happy guests and luckily we have never yet had anyone staying at apartment Ocean Blue who has not had a fantastic time and rated us five star. Remember returning guests automatically receive a 5% discount.
Thank you for your kind words.
We stayed as a family of four (two boys, aged 12 and 10) at the beautiful Ocean Blue apartment at Glitter Bay. Prior to our arrival, we exchanged many emails with the owner, Penny, who patiently answered all of our questions and made sure that we were happy before we had even arrived.
On arrival, we were met by our driver, Perry, who had been organised by Penny. He was a great fun, knowledgable, reliable and helped shepherd us around for our entire stay.
As to the apartment itself, words cannot express how beautifully decorated and maintained it is. The furnishings and design are stunning, its a great size for a family of four and Penny has managed to think of everything. It is also perfectly located for both pool and beach and the view to the beach is breathtaking.
Glitter Bay itself is a well run property: the gardens and tennis courts, are perfectly maintained, the pool is clean, the beach is perfect and the staff all made us feel welcome. It is also brilliantly located for the many great restaurants around Holetown and Speightstown. On the subject of which, special mention must go to Sea Cat.
We should also mention Chauntel who visited daily to keep the apartment sparkling, which included helping us with some clothes washing.
We really can't recommend Ocean Blue highly enough and can't wait to go back. Those early evenings spent on the stunning terrace with G&Ts will live long in the memory.
Dear Tom and family,
I am so very pleased you had a brilliant holiday, everyone seems to love Ocean Blue and I am pleased to say in all honestly that everyone who has taken the time to review the apartment has given us a five star rating. It is really great when a family let you know how their holiday went as other families find this genuinely helpful. Chauntel said what delightful guests you where and we both look forward to welcoming you back again to your Barbados home from home.
Barbados, perched in the sea to the east of the Windward Islands is wonderful holiday destination with natural attractions all of its own: acres of rolling green sugar cane fields, a breathtaking coastline of soft sandy beaches lapped by calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean on the west and expanses of wild surf crashing onto the wide sandy beaches of the Atlantic east coast; exotic trees and shrubs such as banyan, mahogany, flamboyant and poinsettia. As you drive across the island you glimpse fine, colonial-style plantation houses and come across villages of houses brightly painted in classic Caribbean colours, surrounded by garden of frangipani and hibiscus. Barbados is a paradise island,. You can enjoy every type of water sport, water skiing, sailing, diving and paragliding. The snorkeling all along the beach is excellent and you may even see a turtle! Windsurfing is available on the south coast side of the island. Game fishing and boats for hire can all be arranged.
Other Activities: Snorkelling
