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.

You would be missing out if you don't give these cottages a stay while you are in Bridgetown.
[:en]You would be missing out if you don't give these cottages a stay while you are in Bridgetown. On the map it look a long way from the action however this location is extremely nice, it's clean safe and quiet. Plus the local knowledge of Stefano (host) will really make your stay! - The $1.00USD local taxi are easy and a total hoot. - If you are needing to go to the consulate this is a better location and the driver Rodney will get you there for about $15.00USD at the consulate you will find a great cafe with western style breakfast and meals. - Within a few steps of your apartment you will find Surfers Bay Bar (loads of fun and super easy) Chicken Rita's (great food and an experience) there is also a bar and restaurant at Silver Sands Beach however did not have time to try this. It's owned by a windsurfer and that beach is very popular for wind surfing and kite boarding. - You must MUST go down to Miami Beach and have a Double Flying Fish Sandwich from Mr. Delicious food truck. It's not really on the menu but it totally worth it. Had we discovered this earlier it would have been our lunch every day. - My last tip would be to have Stefano book you on the "El Tigre" cat tour as early in your trip as possible. James the pickup driver is full of useful tips and the team on this tour will start your holiday out right. Go on and enjoy.[:]
[:en]Hezké, klidné místo blízko moře. Ubytování čisté, kuchyňka pěkně vybavená. Majitel vstřícný a ochotný. Doporučujeme lidem, co mají rádi klid, surfing, kytesurfing. My jsme byli velmi spokojení.[:]
[:en]We stayed at the Green Garden apartment in March for our last two days in Barbados. We particularly enjoyed its location in a quiet neighborhood, very close to the sea but not right on the ocean where the waves are very noisy. The Wi-Fi was very fast, the apartment was very clean and it felt very homely. The breeze and the ceiling fan kept the bedroom cool and there was no need for an A/C. Great place for surfers or people who are looking for a relaxing and quiet holiday away from it all. It is close to the airport, however you could hardly spot or hear any planes. Go to Miami/Enterprise Beach if you want to see them flying over your head! We walked there with our 5-year old son, carrying the obligatory boogie board which we found in the apartment. The local beach is lovely and deserted, however in March the waves are too strong for a small child to go swimming safely. We enjoyed a sundowner at the nearby Surfers’ Bar, great music and beastly cold beers! We would definitely recommend this place! Thank you Stefano & Elisabetta![:]
[:en]Appartamento delizioso quanto i proprietari, disponibili ed attenti ad ogni esigenza. Location imperdibile per gli amanti degli sport d'acqua...consigliatissimo!![:]
We had a blast!
[:en]Thanks to Stefano and Elisabetta for their hospitality and their nice apartment.
Everything was perfect.
We'll be back!
[:en]Clean? Well-maintained? Good customer service? Woud we recommend...?
YES! YES! And YES!
We enjoyed our stay so much and would choose this apartment again anytime!
Stefano is an excellent host and there was simply nothing to complain about!
We're back home now for 2 days and really miss this place so much...
To everyone who will decide to book: you will love it. So we did and do!
Thank you Stefano & SEE YOU SOON :)[:]
Green Garden Apt Barbados is absolutely wonderful
[:en]This is the second time we have stayed at the Blue Cottage Apartments in beautiful Barbados. These properties are well-maintained, well-appointed and are in a beautiful area in Silver Sands / South Coast. The apartment was very clean, and linens provided. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a fabulous meal. The outdoor patio area was wonderful place to relax and cool off after a day at the beach, private secluded. This location is close to world-class surfing, kiteboarding, windsurfing and snorkeling. Beautiful ocean views. A shore seaside walk to the Surfer's Bay Grille. Oistens is also nearby for dining, shopping. Stefano and his wife Elizabetta are the most gracious hosts. They have always gone out of their way to make us feel welcome on the island. We have always enjoyed our time here and will be back again and again. This is a great rental property, all of the apartments are clean, safe, affordable, ideal for family / children. 5 Stars![:]
[:en]I travel a lot both for work and holidays and, to be honest, I don't normally write reviews about hotels and apartments where I stayed (I gues I am a little bit lazy...), however this time I am more than happy to make an exception as this place was simply perfect. And when I say perfect, I really mean it! Why? Here we are:
1) Location: no matter if you are a surfer, windsurfer, kitesurfer, you simply want to relax on the beach, enjoy the bajan culture etc. Silver Sand is probably the best location to visit from south to north, from east to west. If you stay on the west coast you might risk to miss the amazing east coast. If you stay on the east coast you might risk to miss the carribean side. Staying in the south of the Island you are exactly in the middle of the coasts. Perfect also for watersports and very close to the super famous oystin fish market (5 mins drive).
2) The flat was very clean, I have also really enjoyed the small patio outside and the kitchen is a proper kitchen where you can cook in the proper way, said by an Italian
3)Did the owner provide good customer service? The answer is no, they did provide an excellent customer service. Good is not enough to describe how Stefano and Elisabetta were helpful. They made my staying easy and relaxing. What I was looking for...I wanted to surf, they rented me a surf board, I wanted a car, they found a rental car for me, I needed the driving license permit, they organize it for me, I needed infos, they provided me with all infos I needed. But, most important thing, they always did that with a smile (which is quite important!)
4)I would strongly reccomend this place to everyone, a car is a must if you wanna see the several beaches on the island, but hey...would you go to barbados and stay only in the beach of your resort?
5)I was lucky as I had some amazing surf sessions first days then surf went a little bit down, but hey you can´t have everything, right? In front of the apartment is the beach for windsurf and kitesurf which may make you think it is too windy to enjoy the beach, but I was surprised how the wind was not annoying at all! Regarding restaurants, to be honest, my suggestion is to enjoy oistin fish market as much as you can. Restaurants are quite expensive in barbados and to be honest in most of the cases most of the money you pay are more for the location than for the food itself. Anyway, go there and find out yourself!!!![:]
A lovely apartment in a great location
[:en]A great, well set-up, clean apartment near some lovely and almost private beaches. On the relaxed south coast the apartment is ideally located for some great surf, kite surf and wind surf spots (no car needed to get to them) and about a 30 minute walk from Oistins.
The owners are more than happy to help - from initial contact to leaving at the end they will sort out anything you need (transport, recommendations, advice etc) but let you enjoy the privacy of the apartment and terrace.
Overall, a lovely place to relax and enjoy Barbados.[:]
Wonderful Stay at Green Garden Apartment
[:en]We stayed at the Green Garden Apartment for 10 days. We had a wonderful time and just loved its location. A few minutes walk to the bus stop (passes every 5 minutes). Woke up to birds singing every morning, no traffic noise. Stefano and his wife were always happy to give us a hand or reserve excursions and car for us. They suggested the El Tiger catamaran trip, it was out of this world. The best excursion I have ever done. I can't wait to go back, thanks Stefano for everything.
Brenda and Joelle[:]
[: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![:]
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[:]
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.[:]
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!
Sandro & Priska[:]
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.
Tina & Julian[:]
the perfect place of holiday...
[:en]Welcome and familiarity are the principal characteristics, into the fantastic place like Barbados; beautiful apartment positioned in the relax angle in a few step by the sea. We'll come back sure, thanks to Stefano and Elisabetta[:]
Hang loose :)
[:en]We had a wonderful stay at Green Garden Appartment. Thanks a lot to Elisabetha and Stefano - they were very nice and helpful in any case. For example, Stefano rented us really good surfing and snorkelling equipment and gave us lots of useful tips. You just have to ask him. Our appartment was cozy and clean and made us feel like home. In our opinion, this is the best place to stay on the island. There are lots of nice surfing spots close to the appartment and also beautiful beaches nearby. Two minutes by walk you will find a really nice bar and restaurant with ocean view where you can enjoy the evening and relaxed atmosphere. All in all - a perfect accommodation with very nice owners in a beautiful surrounding!
Thank you very much! We hope to see you both again as soon as possible!
Cheers, Ines & Eugen[:]
[:en]We are 3 girls and we stayed at the Green Garden appartment in Barbados for 10 days. We were looking for a "buen retiro" holiday apart from the resort and all inclusive holiday and here we found our private paradise at the cottage.We had a great time there, the studio is not just clean but spacious and well mantained. The atmosphere was cosy and was amazing waking up every day surronded by beautiful palms and gardens.The bay we had was just within a short walk from the cottage and it was like it had private beach for the most of the time. The surfer's bay bar is a meeting point for locals and surfers and it is a perfect place to go for listening to live music and for a drink and chat with locals ( amazing and intimate atmosphere).The owners of the Blue Ocean Cottage, Stefano and Eli, were friendly and always ready to assist us from the initial enquiries by mail even during our stay. They hired a car for us and they really helped us by giving us so many suggestion on how to make the most of Barbados. We felt at home, and we really enjoyed Barbados. The island is a Must and it was our dream's holiday made perfect by the enjoyable and helpfull service. We all miss Barbados soooo much and we would definitively reccomend the Blue Ocean Cottage and the island of Barbados.[:]
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.
Leanne & Luke[:]
Great Experience ***** We spent a week in march at the lovely Green garden apartment and we had a very good experience. We went with our two children and they had the opportunity to enjoy the garden and the company of Maya in the morning. The apartment is super clean and Elisabetta and Stefano helped us with everithing like booking kite surf lessons, booking the airport trasfer, giving us indications for buses and shops. We are definetly planning to go again next year if will be possible.
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.[:]
MAGNIFICO SOGGIORNO ***** Per la nostra prima volta a Barbados, siamo stati benissimo nel Green garden da Elisabetta e Stefano che sono ospiti squisiti e molto disponibili. L'appartamento è molto funzionale, spazioso, pulito e fornito di tutto ciò che serve. La location è molto comoda per visitare sia la costa caraibica che la costa oceanica. Strategica la vicinanza con Oistins ed il suo caratteristico mercato del pesce! Grazie Eli e Stefano! Iliana e Alessandro
[:en]a friend and i stayed in the green garden, and the rest of our group had the bigger blue ocean upstairs. it was like we owned the whole place! the accomodations were clean, comfortable, and decorated with a carribean theme! mostly everything we needed was provided! not only were the appartments lovely (with a BEACH view and plenty of space to RELAX- ie. hammock & waterfront balcony), stefano & elizabetha went out of their way to take care of us and make our stay in barbados excellent! They even brought us into oistins and told us the best place to eat in the fish market! Do not hesitate to make your reservations here, you won't regret it! *close proximity to beach bar with amazing rum punch[:]
CHE PACE A GREEN GARDEN!
CHE PACE A GREEN GARDEN! ***** Per il secondo anno di seguito siamo stati nell'appartamento Green Garden e quest'anno anche a Yellow Bird per la seconda parte delle nostra vacanza. Giardino tropicale a due passi da spiagge da sogno e l'ospitalità ricevuta da Elisabetta è unica per disponibilità e spontaneità. L'appartamento è completo di tutto ciò che volevamo, ci siamo sentiti come a casa.
Feel like a local in Barbados
[:en]My husband and I just got back from the beautiful island, Barbados. Our stay at the Kabakalli Cottages was peaceful and relaxing. The Green Garden Studio was exactly as pictured in the photo on the website. Clean, comfortable, everything you need in the kitchen...good water presuure in the shower and my husband enjoyed the outdoor shower, as well. The twin beds are comfortable but not plush. However, we slept like babies, often listening to the night breezes and waking to the chirping birds. Enjoyed the outside hammock and patio daily. The property is located at the southern end of the island in a little neighborhood that is removed and private. We had a little walk to the bustop and buses come every five minutes! The ocean was right outside and you could walk to the beach. The owners, Stefano and Elisabetta couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and accomodating. They have great suggestions for food, groceries, transportation and beaches. They set up a taxi for us, to and from the airport. We felt like we were in our own little beach hideaway. For those of you who like hotels and room service, this is not for you. For those of you who love to get the feel of the island and live on your own for a week or two...this is the spot!!! There are other apartments available (a little larger) but they were booked during our stay. However, I liked the fact that we had a lot of private, outdoor space...not just a balcony like some of the apartments. And you can't beat the price...Buy your plane ticket now! The best fish at the Oistens fish fry, on Friday nights and great chicken at a funky house/restaurant called Chicken Rita (only for the adventurous traveler!) Didn't rent a car...always took local buses...$1.00. Enjoy![:]
CUTE BEACH APARTMENT w/ EXCELLENT Hosts
CUTE BEACH APARTMENT w/ EXCELLENT Hosts ***** - 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 Elisabetta 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 than the nearby tourist centers, so while it's very doable to take the public bus to the other towns 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. It was recommended to us by our hosts and was a highlight of the trip.
