Why Penny Caro chose Porters
My family has been visiting the Caribbean for approximately forty five years and this is the second property we have owned and rented through HomeAway. We try hard to maintain a high standard and graciously our many guests appreciate the honesty in our truthful description of the apartment and in the images we show, and they confirm that both the apartment and the Glitter Bay Resort deliver.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
We recently returned from a 6 night stay at Ocean View villa. We couldn't have loved it more! The villa was clean, comfortable, and beautiful. Penny has decorated the villa with such a calming and lovely décor. There was daily housekeeping by Beverly, who was lovely inside and out. She kept the apartment spotless.
Glitter Bay is a wonderful property with a pool, bar, gym, and well tended gardens. We were assigned our own beach chairs, for which we were grateful. We loved everything about the resort and would highly recommend staying at Ocean View.
I am really pleased you enjoyed your holiday in Barabdos, and that you hope to go again in the future. Thank you for your five star reveiew of the apartment, it is encourageing that guests have always given us rating of five stars. Beverely is a lovley person and tries very hard to ensure guests are well looked after, and I am very keen that the apartment is well maitained and any repairs are carried out quickey when required.
My ethos is that I firmly belive that if you give guests the best possible experience and a high standard, in the quality of the furnishings, linnen, equipment, and housekeepeing services, guests will return and also recommend the apartment, so it just pays off.
Exceptional Five Star Stay!
Simply perfect! This was our first trip to Barbados and as soon as we arrived at Gliter Bay we knew we’d made the right choice. Excellent, quiet location with every resource available either on site, a short walk up the beach or into Holetown. The beach is absolutely stunning, and the lounger policy puts everyone at ease. The apartment itself was beautifully furnished and maintained. Beverly was lovely and thanks to her the apartment was in perfect order every afternoon when we returned from a day at the beach. In short, everything about our stay put us straight into relaxed, happy vacation mode. Next time we’ll stay longer than a week! Thank you, Penny!
Fantastic week at Ocean Blue Glitter Bay
Very nicely decorated, clean and well maintained property. Just as described in the listing. Great view of ocean and sunset too! We've stayed at over 25 different places and locations around the island over the past 35 years and this is one of our favourite accommodations and resort. The owner is very friendly and the daily maid , Beverly was awesome. A short walk along the beach to our favourite restaurant, Lonestar, is a plus and the distance from Holetown is only a 20 minute walk.
We'll be back again!
Just returned from a perfect holiday!
We have just returned from our second stay in in Ocean Blue, and the fact that immediately after staying there for a week in 2018 we contacted Penny to book a three week stay this year should be a good indication of what we think of this unit.
Glitter Bay is a great property with well maintained grounds and facilities, and fantastic staff. Some may think that the fact that beach chairs are assigned to a guest for their entire stay is a bit odd and fussy, we think it is quite civilized. The location is very good. Close enough to walk into Holetown or up the beach to some very good restaurants.
Penny’s unit is beautifully updated with comfortable furnishings and has a very well equipped kitchen. The housekeeper keeps everything sparkling clean, and wil even do personal laundry.
We would not hesitate to recommend this unit, and hope to be back ourselves in the near future.
I am so glad you enjoyed another great vacation at apartment Ocean Blue and I am please you would book to stay with us again.
I also think the beach/sunlounger policy is good as there is never any awkwardness about who sat where yesterday, and if you don't like where you are sitting the beach staff will move you as soon as they can.
Beverley the housekeeper says you are very considerate guests.
Thank you for taking the time to do a review.
An exceptional beachfront two bedroomed apartment.
Ocean Blue is a stunning apartment, no expense has been spared on the fixtures and fittings, put together by the owner with enviable creative flair. The sofas and beds are luxuriously comfortable, perfect for rest and relaxation. Daily visits from the housekeeper maintain the apartment to an immaculate level.
A double balcony overlooks the colourful gardens, with views of the ocean, perfect. The Glitter Bay restaurant and bar offers delicious lunches, happy hours and a weekly barbecue.
We particularly appreciated the attention of the beach attendant who allocated our comfortable sunloungers for the duration of our stay.
Glitter Bay is in an excellent location, we regard the beach as the best on the West coast, with excellent bathing and water sports available. Some popular restaurants and bars are within walking distance, taxis are readily available for those further away.
I would recommend Ocean Blue at Glitter Bay to friends and relatives, it’s the perfect destination for a peaceful, relaxing, stress free holiday.
An incredible apartment with sea views.
This is a beautiful space, incredibly well maintained; clean and with every kitchen amenity/gadget you could possibly think of using. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. We have been to Glitter Bay four times and fall a little more in love every year. I could not recommend this property highly enough.
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.
