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.

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

Another perfect vacation in Fitts Village!

  • 5 of 5

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,

Mark and Genia

Incredible Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Oceans! Debbie was such a warm host, providing a care package for us upon arrival and sourcing some much needed baby items (such as a playpen) for our stay. The beach right outside the cottage is a bit rocky from the coral, but if you walk 1 minute, there's a gorgeous white sand beach for swimming and snorkelling. We couldn't ask for better hosts and absolutely loved our stay here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Lisa! We are so glad you enjoyed Barbados your stay at Oceans - we loved having you as our guests. It was my pleasure sourcing the baby stuff, as I know from experience, a few items can make a big difference when traveling with a baby. We wish Mother Nature was kinder for your time here, as the Island was experiencing a strong North Swell hitting the West coast then and this caused a lot of the sand to be washed away and coral to be washed up where there is normally beach. Was lovely meeting your parents & in laws as well. Hope you found lots of inspiration for your writings. Take care Debbie

Spacious, comfortable oceanside (almost ) villa.

  • 5 of 5

We receiived a warm and friendly welcome from Debbie, who immediately made us feel at home. Debbie also gave us a welcome pack of such generosity that it was not necessary for us to rush out to the shops for supplys. A real boon after a days travelling. To aid our recovery, we were presented with a bottle of Rosie's ( Debbie's mother in law ) rum punch, which was excellent.

Oceans has the authentic feel of a true Bajan villa, with almost every possible modern convenience ( the exception being a dish washer ). The architectural highlight is the wraparound verandah, which allows outside living no matter the weather. The view through the trees to the sea is a joy. The space is so generous, one feels quite spoiled. The large bedroom on the upper level being a prime example.

The level of kitchen/catering equipment/utensils is of the highest level. Some providers assume their guests will be eating out all the time and forget some kitchen essentials. Debbie makes no such assumptions or omissions.

Providing a wonderful overhanging tree to offer plenty of shade on the beachside wall was very thoughtful and many people stopped to admire our vantage point.

Oceans provided an excellent homely base for yet another Bajan idyll.

Fabulous property

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the three week holiday. Wonderful location right by the beach with plenty of places to visit nearby...Paynes Bay, Holetown, Speightstown, Bridgetown...all within a relatively short bus ride. The beaches and weather were just about perfect...a great escape from the misery of Britain in December! The house itself had everything we could possibly need including a VERY welcome pack which meant we didn't need to go shopping on the first day. Debbie was the perfect host, extremely helpful and even took us on a drive round the island! The only (small) downside was the traffic noise from the road outside...but this is a problem all along the west coast and not the fault of the property. Would wholeheartedly recommend!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a wonderful vacation and Oceans met all your needs. We enjoyed having you as guests ! It was my pleasure to show you the North and East coast. The island holiday would not have been complete without seeing the rustic side of our Island. Hope to see you again someday Take care Debbie

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

Oceans is one of the best properties we have enjoyed through Homeaway and is probably one of the best values in Barbados. The home is actually better than advertised, with truly anything we could want in a self-catered property conveniently provided. We wanted for nothing, were quite comfortable, and had few worries, even for our first overseas trip.

The location is great for either a relaxing beach vacation or as a base for intrepid island explorers. We did a bit of both and fully enjoyed ourselves. The neighborhood is busy and bustling... you will not feel isolated here. But the proximity to a good grocery store, restaurants of all price ranges, the main road system and bus routes leading all over the island, and good shopping made this a great "home" for our 10-day adventure.

I would personally recommend considering a car rental, as this allowed us full flexibility that we made good use of. It only took a few minutes to get used to driving on the left, and the freedom of movement was well worth it. But beware that Google Maps has a very interesting view of what constitutes a proper road. It is safest to stick to routes with bus signs.

One last comment on the Oceans property. Debbie, the homeowner, asked us about the balance of privacy in the home and I would answer her here for your benefit: the Oceans rental home is on a beachfront property shared with the owner's (separate) homes, but with a common security gate and driveway. For travelers preferring privacy (typically myself included), this might be a concern unless you understand the set-up. In reality, we simply felt like we had good neighbors. Debbie met us when we arrived and we spoke with her and others in the family just casually from time-to-time. We never perceived any "hovering" at all but felt comforted that help was nearby should it be needed. We fully enjoyed getting to know our new "neighbors," finding them delightful, and very much appreciated the warmth they showed us. Thank you, Mum, for the yummy rum punch and the seashell. And Debbie, the ornament went on our Christmas tree first thing when we returned home. Thank you again for your hospitality and your kindness. Best wishes!
