About Debbie Allan

Brian & I are both Barbadians going back a few generations and have been married for 20 years.We operate a dairy farm on the island at our Plantation in St. John. We both were educated in Barbados and then furthered our education in London, UK and Canada. We have 3 Children, a boy and 2 girls who are avid surfers.

Why Debbie Allan chose Fitts Village

This property is an ideal location at a great price. The house itself has a lot of character and is the typical Caribbean style with a bit more flair. Our aim is to offer simple, clean, affordable accommodation with all the amenties to make your holiday great.

Many moons ago the area use to be a small family farm and has been in the family for generations. The basic structure was brought from Guyana and was originally only one level, which was on stilts. We renovated the property adding on the top level and filling in the bottom level to increase its size.

What makes this house unique

On bus route to main towns

Very close to supermarket, restaurants etc

Located on a quiet beach mostly comprising of high end villas.

A great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay with Debbie, Brian & Lily and we had a fantastic time. We were made to feel very welcome and the house was very comfortable.

The location was great and the sea next to the house was very calm, warm and inviting - very different to the South and East coasts where we have stayed before. Although we had a car (and space to park 2 cars), buses were available almost outside of the house that can take you all over the island. There was a supermarket/bars/restaurant a few minutes walk away and it was a few minutes drive to Holetown for more options.

The house was very clean, spacious and well decorated. There was lots of space, inside and outside and we loved sitting on the huge balcony outside. The beds were extremely comfortable and there was lots of room for storage. The beach is just through a small path, about 20 steps from the door. There are loungers and they provide beach towels too. We were also provided with a welcome pack with bread/milk/eggs/cheese/cereal/biscuits/rum punch etc. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and gadgets and things like salt/pepper are there too.

The owners live next door and there was always someone about if your needed anything - their advice was always very helpful and we liked having someone close by who would look out for us.

As said in the description, there is traffic noise but this is the case with the whole of the West coast and TBH, it didnt bother me.

My favourite part was Lily who is Debbie and Brians cat! I am not a 'cat person' at all but this is the loveliest cat I have ever met and I still miss playing with her! She will pop in to visit you at some point!

It is an ideal holiday rental and we would love to return soon!

Relaxing , great location next to a beautiful quite beach , perfect for swimming / snorkelling .

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday at Oceans . Such a treat swimming in the Caribbean , snorkelling , saw a baby turtle most days . Realaxing on your own private seawall watching the boats go by . The veranda was spacious , complete with hammock , perfect place to read with such beautiful views to the Ocean . There was noise from the road , which is a busy road that runs all along the west coast . You soon forget about that sitting on the beautiful veranda . We all look forward to a return visit to Barbados and would love to stay at Oceans again . Debbie is the most wonderful host , lots of thoughtful extras included in the beautiful beach house . I certainly enjoyed Rosie’s home made rum punch ! Debbie very kindly showed us the rugged east coast . We felt very safe knowing our lovely host lived next door . Barbados is a beautiful island , lots to do and the Bajans very friendly . Local food wonderful from street food to fabulous restaurants . Looking forward to our next trip to Oceans . Highly recommended.

Relaxing Deck with a Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Oceans! To begin with, our plane was delayed and we didn't arrive at Oceans until nearly 1 a.m. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and given a quick tour. Debbie's daughter carried our luggage up the stairs, so sweet! There were a few groceries to get us started. Rosie had left a bottle of her rum punch, which was delicious! The whole house was decorated so cute and beachy. We slept in the upstairs master. The room was extremely spacious and the bed was very comfortable. My favorite part of the house was the deck. It had such a beautiful view of the aqua and various blues of the ocean. The view was framed with palm trees and bougainvillea. All day long you will see boat after boat sail by. The deck was a great place to have coffee in the morning, grill, eat meals, and enjoy drinks. My husband and I enjoyed going to the beach just to the right of the house everyday, which was great for snorking. One day I swam side by side with a turtle directly in front of the house, and sometimes he swam directly below me; such a highlight of the trip! We had an issue with the shower on the main floor. I reported it the first day, and the had a plumber fix it the same day. We enjoyed having little conversations with Rosie daily as we were coming or going, but she also respected our privacy. Our last day on the island, Debbie gave us a nice parting gift.

The only thing I didn't enjoy about our stay was the loud high speed traffic and horn honking out side the house which was constant. Activities we did on the island, we went snorkling on the stiletto on action charters... good food, fun crew, drinks kept flowing. We also went on Coconut 360 tour which took us all over the island, and drinks and lunch were included. Our last night we went to the Harbor Lights Dinner Show; highly recommend! A great and very affordable place to eat is Just Grillin in Holetown. We took the bus just outside the house instead of renting a car. We truly enjoyed our stay at Oceans!

Wonderful property,centrally located, easy beach access. Welcome basket and rum punch were wonderful

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Oceans for 5 nights. Could not have been happier. We were there for our 28th anniversary and enjoyed every minute of it. The welcome basket Debbie had waiting for us was fantastic. From cereals to coffee and bananas. Crackers and chips. Enough in the refrigerator to get started until we could make it to the store. Very much appreciated.

Spent early mornings out on the cement patio by the ocean watching the fishing boats and sailing boats go by and drinking coffee. Even saw a cruise ship pulling into port one morning. Walked up and down the beach and found lots of sea glass and a few shells.

There is not a lot within walking distance from Oceans. A grocery store for essentials, one sports bar, (Wendy’s) and an Italian restaurant. Both of which have very good food, but if you want to try other options for dining, a rental car is not needed as the busses travel up and down the hwy right behind the house from 5:00 am till after dark, and will take you anywhere you want to go. Oceans is perfectly located between Bridgetown and Holetown for entertainment and food and drink.

Our hosts were on a vacation of their own while we were there, so Rosie was our gracious host, brining hommade rum punch and checking up on us periodically. The resident kitty (Lil) was always glad to see us when we returned from an outing too.

The only thing we had issues with was the main floor shower. It had no water pressure. But there were 2 others to use so not really a problem.

There is a slight lack of privacy, as the houses are so close together, but we never were bothered by anyone.

Would definitely recommend Oceans to anyone.

Thank you Debbie and Brian. Sorry we didn’t get to meet you. Maybe next time. Thank you Rosie for your hospitality.

Beautiful house, amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Oceans for a week and it could not have been a better experience. Debbie was such a gracious host and not only had the house generously stocked with food and essentials upon our arrival, she also made sure we were comfortable and was available for any questions or recommendations throughout our stay. The house is better than described and the photos can't do justice to how great it really is. Just steps to the beach, we were back and forth from the beautiful veranda and the beach all week. The house is also located in a great spot close to restaurants and a grocery store. We barely left and would definitely love to return again. Highly recommended

This was our second stay at the Oceans and once again we were very happy with Debbie's hospitality, Rosie's hand-made rum punch, charming house, spectacular beach and unforgettable sunsets. Can't wait to be back in the future! Thank you,
