The Green Garden Apartment is at the ground floor and is at the same time simple and very functional. It’s facing on two sides of the wild garden. From one side you can benefit from the luxuriant green and stay under the pergola to eat or enjoy the shadow and the fresh of the ocean breeze… maybe cradled by the hammock hooked-up to the coconut palm!
At the other side there is the entrance of the house. The apartment is formed by a small kitchen fully furnished with all accessories: dishes, glasses, cutlery, pots, cups, gas stove with oven, fridge, freezer, toaster, electric iron with ironing board and all the necessary items to render the kitchen operative for every need. The living-night area has two comfortable single beds (that on request can be prepared as a king size bed) with bed side tables, wardrobe, table and chairs and an eventual third bed.
The practice bathroom has hair dryer, toilette, wash basin and shower. A Cd, radio player with Ipod exit is available which can follow you during your magic holiday. All shutters are with mosquito screen and curtains; 110 volt light sockets (American plugs) are available. There is a ceiling fan (on the bed), a safe, electric iron with ironing board, books, an information guide book of the place and Barbados island with excursion leaflets, brochures and maps.

Blue Ocean Cottage, Green Garden Apartment
[:en]The best place in Barbados! Quiet area in fisherman village but you have everything you need there: beautiful beach, lovely and simple beach bar, friendly locals around you.
Special thanks to owners Stefano and Elisabetta: lovely people and apartment was good. Recommend to everybody![:]
Great Little Beach Apartment
[:en]I spent a week in the Green Garden Apartment with my mom for a beach getaway and had a lovely time. Stefano and his wife were excellent hosts, taking the time to explain the nearby beaches, food & drink and transportation options, and answer any questions I had about the nearby towns and things to do. The apartment was very clean and has many amenities, including wi-fi, satellite tv for a rainy afternoon, iPod dock, and kitchen appliances/dishes. The nearest beach is a 5 minute walk away and rarely crowded. The front apartments have beautiful ocean views while the downstairs rentals have covered private patios surrounded by banana and palm trees.
The Silver Sands area is a bit more residential, so while it's very doable to take the public bus a short walk away from the apartment (which is what we did our whole trip), renting a car may be easier for getting around the island with more than 2 people for things like grocery stores and other towns or beaches. The south coast is windier than the west, so expect consistent breezes, which can be good for keeping the hotter days cool and attracts the surfing crowd.
We had a great experience overall and would recommend renting here. While we were there, there was a mix of Europeans and Americans, from families with young children to twenty-somethings. Steve's Surfer Bar, which is on the closest beach a few minutes walk, has live music on Sunday nights and brings a super diverse crowd for food and drinks.[:]
Nice a relaxing
[:en]We had a very good stay at Green Garden Apt. Elisabetta and Stefano are very friendly and helpful. They gave us a lot of good tips that made our stay great. The house is clean and is the best location for surfers in Barbados. It is a good choice for relaxing as well. We don't practice any water sport but green garden apt is a good headquarter to visit all island and go the west coast beaches as well. We found also unforgattable the sunset from the beach far only 1 minute walk from the house.[:]
Great value self-catering in the peaceful South
[:en]If you are looking for a quiet, scenic, clean and good value place to stay in Barbados then this is for you! We stayed in the Green Garden Apartment which is on the ground floor and therefore remains cool and benefits from the seabreeze. The patio is also a nice place to enjoy breakfast or some hammock time. Stefano the owner, who lives on site, took great care of us from arranging our airport transfers to helping us with car hire and advice on where to eat and sightsee. It is as described, 70 metres from the sea, where we saw turtles swimming in the surf on our first night. The number 11 reggae van leaves from the corner shop 5 minutes walk away. This takes you along the coast to Bridgetown vis Oistins and St Lawrence Gap. It's a very frequent service and at only 2 USD/4 Bajan Dollars it is a great means of transport-don't be intimidated by the loud music...it adds to the experience! Should you hire a car it is a great place to explore from as it is conveniently located to the main roads and Crane beach is only a short drive away. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Green Garden Apartment and would love to go back someday.

So glad we stayed here!
[:en]We can't wait to come back- to lovely Barbados, and to Green Garden apartment. I had read that this was a good area to stay as a base for exploring around the island, and that proved to be true. The studio apartment itself was airy and comfortable, and had all the basics to spend a week, including cooking for ourselves. We were never too hot to sleep, despite no A/C...Great to be so close to the ocean, and to what was often our own private beach just a short walk away. We enjoyed the patio and hammock, and the outdoor shower to rinse off after a day at the beach. Quiet, friendly and peaceful spot - so nice waking to the sounds of birds, waves and rustling trees in the garden. Don't miss nearby Miami (also called Enterprise) beach - it was a favourite. We rented a mini-moke which Stefano arranged in advance, and managed to adapt to the "left to live" driving without incident! We would stay here again. Being in Barbados is luxury enough- no need for luxury accommodations and prices![:]
2 lovely weeks in paradise
[:en]We chose this appartment because we did not want to end up in a prison of mass tourism but rather stay in a more domestic place. Our choice proved to be a fantastic one.
The appartment was simple but very well maintained and equipped with everything one needs. Even though we did not have A/C, it never got unpleasantly warm inside.
The surrounding area is pretty quiet, with an almost private beach, accessible in 3 minutes on foot. We liked the nearby Surfer's Bay beach bar with simple but good dishes and drinks and a fantastic coastal view. 2 mini markets are in foot distance but for bigger errands a car is recommended (it can be accomplished by bus as well). The way to the airport is a less than 15 minutes ride (but air traffic is not disturbing in the surrounding of the appartment).
Elisabetta and Stefano (and of course the lovely Maya) were wonderful hosts, allways helpful with information, recommendations or organizing things like airport transfer, boat trips or car rentals (BTW: rent a moke! So much fun!)
We would definitely come back to this place.

Great time on a great island in a great apartment
[:en]We had a great time on the island. It was our first stay in Barbados but for sure not our last one.
The apartment was great: clean, near the beach and in a good neighborhood. The bus stop (11) as well as 2 mini markets are in walk distance. The apartment was well equipped and we had everything we needed (fridge, kitchen, hair dryer, etc.).
Stefano and Elisabetta are doing a great job and are very helpful. We can recommend the apartment without exception.
Thank you and see you hopefully next year!

Home away from home
[:en]Stefano and Elisabetta were gracious hosts, a lovely couple, very accomodating and helpful. We felt at home in our apartment, which was situated very close to a beach and a nice beach pub. We would recommend this rental to anyone who wants to explore Barbados.[:]
Gorgeous holiday !
[:en]We have been the last 2 weeks of our wonderful holiday in Green Garden Apartment, another wonderful apartment of Blue Ocean Cottage in Silver Sands. It is very cosy, fresh and with a wonderful patio with garden where we enjoyed our breakfast and lunch, with the birds and the constant breeze.The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with all tools, great decorations and a nice space. It is very clean and our hosts Elisabetta and Stefano were very very nice and helpful for everything we need. We will definitively be back next year!! See you soon Rosi and Nino[:]
[:en]I am not one to write many reviews, however, I was very pleased with my accommodations in Barbados. Stefano is an excellent host. When my flight was late, his driver was still there ready and waiting to pick me up. When I accidentally broke something in the apartment, Stefano did not charge me. The pictures are accurate, and the towels and sheets are fresh weekly. I recommend Blue Ocean Cottages to anyone interested in exploring Barbados. It is an extremely welcoming place. I hope you have a wonderful trip![:]
