Just tell me the size car required and I will obtain quote and secure a car quote for your approval and once you approve the quote the booking will be confirmed and no payment is required until you collect the car from the airport or have it delivered to your apartment.

If you prefer to be driven this also can be arranged for you locally.

About 20 minutes drive away is St Lawrence Gap with all its Nightlife: The St Lawrence Gap, in Christchurch Parish, is the night life centre of Barbados, located on the more commercial southern coast of the island. The resorts on the south coast are spread out, some even fairly isolated, but the Gap itself is lined with dozens of shops, restaurants, bars, and clubs, and, correspondingly, several resorts are clustered there as well. This part of Barbados is more casual and inviting than the Platinum Coast, and the resorts are hardly behind high walls.

A couple of minutes drive away or 20 minutes walk you will find our local - Marco Polo Bar and Grill. Launched in May 2014, and working hard with local farmers and fishermen in using only "fresh meat and fish", British expats Marc and Sally Egan created Marco Polo Bar & Grill - a fresh take on the traditional Bajan rum shop blending the best of both cultures to offer great food and drink at affordable rum shop prices. The bar plays relaxing music ranging from the 70's, 80's and today's hits . Every Friday there's a Fish, Chips & Mushy Pea night with Karaoke from vibrant Venezuelan, Francisco, which pulls in the crowds. As for sport, every effort is made to screen all the top sporting action in the "Mount Gay" Lounge.

Beaches: Crane Beach (about 5 min drive), originally a harbour, is considered by many to be one of the island's most beautiful beaches. In fact, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous rated it as 'one of the ten best beaches in the world'! A tour of the resort and complimentary day pass can be arranged for you if you are interested in seeing whats on offer at this spectacular resort.

Located less than 5 min away on the south east coast of Barbados, Foul Bay is absolutely beautiful (despite its unfortunate name!).

The expansive beach is partly shaded by casuarina and palm trees, making it a popular spot on weekends and holidays for picnics and family outings. However, the beach is so long and wide that even then it is never crowded!

Beaches on the south coast have fine white sand but are windier than those on the west coast. Reef-protected areas are safe for swimming. Some beaches have good surf and are prime spots for windsurfing.

Johnny Cool's Jazz and Blues Beach Bar located right on Dover Beach has to be one of my favourite spots on the Island for the best chill out experience ever! Indulge in some of Johnny's (locally known as Cool) superb cocktails and frozen drinks and feel all your stress just melt away in this idyllic setting.

Sailing Barbados: Nature's bounty has blessed Barbados with excellent weather, calm seas and steady breezes, making sailing off Barbados 'just beyond your imagination!'

There are several Barbados yachts and catamarans available for charters. You can join a scheduled cruise or customise your own personal sailing tour.

You can charter large catamarans and yachts for guided sailing tours down the scenic West Coast of Barbados, gliding gently through the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea as the steady winds fill the sails. Relax on board a catamaran and watch the beautiful coastline of Barbados slip by. Then drop anchor in a quiet bay for a swim in the crystal clear waters, followed by a sumptuous Barbados lunch! Whether you're looking for a quiet sail down the coast of Barbados, an exciting water sports adventure, or a romantic sunset cruise, you'll find sailing in Barbados to be simply delightful!

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

Relaxing and Quiet Vacation in Ocean City

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight nights in Chris’ Ocean view apartment and had a wonderful time. I booked the apartment last fall and Chris has been more than helpful in answering any questions I had as I was planning our trip. Most of the time he replied within a couple of hours!! The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable. There were adequate dishes and pans to cook meals and we ate in the majority of our meals. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai and enjoying the breeze and salt mist from the ocean waves. We had a late night flight in and Ricardo was so kind to meet us at the airport and we followed him to the apartment in our rental car, which was helpful because I’m not certain we would have found our way in the dark. Ricardo was ready to assist with whatever needs we had. He booked us on a sunset catamaran sail as well as a half day snorkel/lunch sail. We enjoyed both of these immensely. The apartment is situated off from all the busy action of the city, but that worked for us as we like things a little more quiet. If you are driving, make sure your Google Maps app is up and running. Driving in Barbados is a challenge with roads and roundabouts going every which way. There were beach chairs that we used when we drove down to nearly Foul Beach and plenty of towels and beach towels. There is a nice supermarket with a liquor store close by. Be sure to try the local Banks beer. We rented our car from Drive-A-Matic and the service was incredible. We had a flat tire and dead battery and they were at the apartment in record speed both times to repair our car. Just a few small items to bring: Salt, Pepper, laundry soap and a couple of dishwasher tablets. I highly recommend Chris’ apartment for your next vacation to beautiful Barbados.

Owner's Response: Thank you Pam for taking the time to write a great review and we are so pleased you loved your vacation. I have taken note of the fact that salt, pepper and dish washing tablets were missing and will be addressing this issue with my house keeper as they should have been there. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Hope you come back to see us soon. All the very best Chris and Ricky.

Beautiful apartment, great views, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is my 2nd time to visit Barbados - both times I have stayed on the East Coast. I love the quiet, low key vibe on this side. Chris' apartment is fantastic! Has everything you need and very nice, updated accommodations! Ricardo was very thorough to explain everything when we arrived. We had a great week and look forward to another booking in the near future!

Since this apartment is on the East Coast, a car is a must. We spent each day at a different beach - mostly on the West Coast. Some of our favorites included:

Pebbles Beach - just south of Browns Beach and away from cruise ship tourists. Park at the Surf Shop, buy a 1-day membership ($20 usd) to use the chairs/umbrella & wifi. There is a restaurant above the shop or you can stop by Cuz's Fish Stand in the parking lot for an amazing fish cutter.

Holetown - park behind the post office and make your way out to the Surfside restaurant. You can rent chairs/umbrella. Surfside has free wifi. The restaurant is a popular gathering place and has a great menu.

Miami Beach - great beach where locals go. Rent chairs/umbrella and enjoy lunch from the permanent food truck. Miami beach has lots of huge trees behind the beach with hammocks to relax in if you want to get out of the sun.

Dover Beach - park at Johnny Cools Bar, rent chairs/umbrella and enjoy lunch at the bar.

Crane Beach - just 5 minutes from the apartment. Absolutely beautiful beach and views! You can eat at The Crane (on the beach or in the restaurants within the resort). Views of the ocean from the resort are amazing!

If you're looking for an adventure, head up the East Coast and visit Bottom Bay, Bath Beach and Bathsheba. Also, Foul Bay is only a few minutes from the apartment. There are no chairs/umbrellas to rent at these locations but they are unique and beautiful.

Thanks, Chris, for letting us stay at your apartment - look forward to returning!

View from our porch overlooked the Atlantic. Sunrises were spectacular. Area was a quiet neighborhood. Restful. We used Izzy as a driver. She was prompt and fun. We enjoyed the beaches on the east coast and the west coast. We had a great experience. Apartment was beautiful.

Amazing cliff-top property

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing part of the island and a great and safe neighborhood. Close enough to amazing calm beaches on the west and the gateway to incredible beaches on the east. This is a great place to start every day to explore the island. Ricky and Chris have a well oiled operation and are responsive when you need it. The layout and view were perfectly suited for our family (2 children 4 & 8). The kitchen is great for some home cooked meals and you are a 5 min drive away from the Crane hotel and beach for amazing dinners overlooking Crane beach. So much to do and Chris and Ricky will help with anything you need on the island. I highly recommend this area and Chris' apartment.

Great apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 weeks at Chris's wonderful apartment. Chris was fast to respond to all of our questions and his cousin Ricardo met us on site for our arrival to show us the unit. Foul Bay Beach is an amazing white sand beach with nobody on it and is less than a 10 minute walk or 2 by car. The unit is very clean and modern and has all the amenities that you will need. We ate every meal on the balcony while looking at the ocean. We had the best sleeps in the comfortable beds and the area is very quiet. It's off the main track so you will definitely need a car. We will rebook this apartment again on our next visit to this wonderful island.

Very nice property in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay at this house in Barbados. Everything we needed was provided. We arrived after dark and Ricardo met us and insisted on taking me to the grocery store. He arranged for us to get onto a sold out catamaran tour and I was able to swim with the turtles. The house is a little isolated so a car would have been very helpful, but Ricardo also introduced us to Michael who made himself and his taxi available to us whenever we needed him. The house is in a beautiful setting and it was fun just to wander around the neighborhood.

Ocean City Condo is located on the idyllic island of Barbados in the parish of St Philip. Situated close to the cliff, they offer a spectacular 180-degree view of the dazzling aqua sea and cool sea breeze all year round.

Barbados is a small island, just 14 by 21 miles, so everything is within easy reach. The apartment is located close to the cliff edge in Ocean City, a small community in the parish of St Philip on the south-east of the island. There are many local beaches, the nearest being Foul Bay, about 5 min drive away or about 15 min walk along the cliff edge. It is a beautiful long sandy beach ideal for walks and picnics. Crane Beach (Sunday Telegraph best beach) is also less than 10 min away. There is a well equipped supermarket and mini-mart just 5 min away. The airport is less than 10 min drive away. The Barbados Golf Club is 10 min away, there are many restaurants within a 20 min drive and St Lawrence Gap with its wealth of night life is about 20 min away.

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.
