About Chris Cox
Born in the UK from a Bajan father I have always had a love affair with Barbados. As a youngster with a big dream I purchased some land close to a cliff edge overlooking the Caribbean sea in 2000 and spent many years fantasising what I was going to do with it. I was fortunate enough back in 2007 to get the opportunity to build my dream house, in my dream location on a dream Island. As I count down the years till 2022 when I will make a life long dream complete and relocate to this wonderful place I invite you all to come share my dream in the meantime.
Chris Cox purchased this Apartment in 2000

Nice area very quiet
Owner was very helpful communication was very good
Very well done and peaceful
Everything was great at Ocean City. Chris the Owner was there to meet us and was great to work with from start to finish. He was extremely prompt with all answers to questions before we arrived and was very helpful with ideas on where to visit and eat etc. Ocean City is very quiet but not too far from activities. It was a perfect place for a peaceful holiday. Really could not have asked for more. Crane beach very close if you want to be in a beach setting with amenities. Be sure and visit Andrew at “The Office”, an open air bar under a tree at the top of the steps leading off of the beach to the north. Foul Bay very close with nobody there if privacy is what you want.
Thanks Mike for taking time to write a review. It was an absolute pleasure to meet and accommodate you both and I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Please come back and see me again some day as I hope to be spending a lot more time in Barbados in the not so distant future!
Beautiful and relaxing location
We arrived to this property after a three night stay at an all inclusive. What an amazing location and the peace and quiet we wanted so badly. The neighborhood was safe, quiet, and a great place to walk in the morning. The home had everything to make the stay enjoyable. The owners sister met us at the home and offered to drive us if we were interested. We did rent a car and like exploring so we never took her up on the offer. She suggested several restaurants and we tried two which were both fantastic!! Marco Polo and L’Azure at The Crane Resort. There is a beach 5 minutes away with ample parking and met very nice locals there. Chris is fast on answering questions and understanding with our travel concerns. Wonderful host!
Sunny, Peaceful Stay in Ocean City
The apartment is well furnished and has all the amenities needed for an enjoyable stay. It truly was our Home Away from Home and it allowed us to settle quickly into the Bajan Vibe. It is on a quiet street and has a lovely porch where we sat and enjoyed the views of the Atlantic Ocean. The photos in the listing give a very accurate impression of what to expect and everything about the apartment was as promised. The owner, Chris, was very prompt in responding to our questions and confirming our booking.
A car is a necessity and we chose not to drive ourselves, and hired Chris' sister, Izzy, as our chauffeur. This was absolutely the best decision for us since Izzy was not only as a driver, but she was also a tour guide, who carefully planned our an itinerary to suit our needs and interests.
We give our unqualified recommendation to both the apartment and to Izzy for anyone looking to soak up the sun, relax and come home rested and refreshed.
Thank you guys for such a great review and we are all thrilled you had a lovely time. Please come back and see us soon. Chris
Very nice well equipped apt. in quiet neighbourhood.
The apartment is well equipped, and tastefully designed. Very quiet neighbourhood away from all the tourist hustle & bustle. In my opinion car is necessary. Close to many fine restaurants, and secluded beaches. If you are looking for a laid back out of the way place to stay on the island, but still close to many fine establishments, this apt. is very nice option. A+++
The property is on the quiet side of the island, which enabled us to see the real Barbados.
Throughout our stay, Izzy helped us with everything. She took us to Bridgetown to watch the cricket and was always reliable, often arriving 20 mins before our intended departur.e. We decided not to hire a car and used Izzy’s taxi service instead, which was very reasonable, particularly as there were three of us.
The villa was excellent and exactly as described on the HomeAway site. It is possible to walk to nearby shops and restaurants but the roads are not well lit and some people may feel they are too far. However, this did not impact on our trip as Izzy was always available to take us to the tourist spots of Barbados, often waiting to take us home after a few beers.
Chris is excellent at keeping in touch by email and we actually met him at the villa before his return to the snow in England. Overall, an excellent family run property, which gave us the opportunity to experience the beautiful sights of a fantastic island, despite the dismal performance of England on the cricket field!
Thanks guys for the great review. I can only apologise for the bad manners shown by the West Indies cricket team in not giving England a few more runs 😉 Hope to see you back in Barbdos sometime in the future. Thanks for looking after the apartment. Chris.

Golf: Barbados Golf Club, located at Durants in the southern parish of Christ Church (about 20 min drive), has become the soul of golfing in Barbados for local players as well as hotel guests and visitors cruising through the Caribbean. The course was approved and sanctioned by the PGA European Tour to host a PGA Seniors Tournament in 2003 and it has also hosted the Barbados Open on several occasions.
The golf course was reopened in 2000 after a period of reconstruction to the environmentally sensitive design specifications of Ron Kirby, one of the most respected and experienced golf course architects in the world. He redesigned the course to produce a fair, challenging and a pleasurable game for golfers of all levels of skill and competence.
The challenges, rewards and scenic views of the course encourage players of all abilities to play with determination to hone their skills while enjoying the company of friends amidst tropical surroundings.
