Yellow Bird Apartment - This place is great- clean, bright and airy
[:en]This place is great- clean, bright and airy and about 100 yards from the ocean. There's also a cool surf shack restaurant/bar right around the corner that has good drinks and live music. The only thing I would note is that it's a windier and more wild area of the island... The exact area of the house is more suited for Kite/wind surf, but just down the way you'll find South Point and Freights, which are great little surf waves. Stefano was a great host. He lent us extra snorkel gear for free and was totally helpful in terms of getting us oriented... Extremely friendly human. This was a great jump off point for our trip, and I'd recommend.[:]
This apartment is quite basic and in a very quiet location, as described.
[:en]This apartment is quite basic and in a very quiet location, as described. Having said that the area is beautiful and Stefano and Elisabetta are constantly attending to the grounds and property, keeping everything clean and tidy. They are lovely, friendly hosts who helped us with local information and in hiring a car. The bed linens are beautiful and we appreciated the local information booklet In the room.. There is a great beach bar nearby, (only open in the evenings when we were there), and the bigger supermarkets and best beaches are a drive away. Our favourite beach was Miami Beach, and Oistins is just down the road, on the no 11 bus! The sea was very rough on this part of the coast during our stay but there are lovely walks to 2 nearby beaches, and we saw lots of turtles just off the rocks, monkeys in the trees and mongoose near by. Be prepared for extra charges to use the washing machine or to have air conditioning.....but this is listed in their details. All in all, a lovely place to stay.[:]
[:en]Elisabetta & Stefano-
You both made our experience in Barbados a memorable one! We especially enjoyed the deck table and chairs. Dinner in the evening was our time to regroup and plan for the next day. And the breeze... loved it!! You have a sweet spot on the island and we hope to visit again next year. Warmest Regards, Kathy and Don[:]
Great little apartment in good location.
[:en]Stefano was very friendly and readily available for all concerns! Great little apartment in good location.[:]
So Very Impressed!!
[:en]This was our first time to Barbados and we could not be more pleased. Upon arriving at the airport there was transportation waiting to take us to the apartment, then the rental car we wanted was delivered right to us. That alone made the transition to a new country so much easier and enjoyable. The apartment was everything that Stefano and Elizabetta had said. It was spacious and clean. We had a 10 day stay and our linens were changed every 5 days and our towels were changed ever three days. The apartment was on the top floor and our view from the deck was gorgeous, could see and hear the ocean. There is a very nice almost private beach within a 3 minute walk. There is also a great open air bar called Surfers Bay which is also a 3 minute walk. Great way to end the day after being at the beach. The island itself is very easy to get around (once you can navigate the streets) and the people are very friendly and the food is out of this world. The fish market on Friday is a very happening place to be! I would recommend this place to whomever, our next visit to Barbados we will be staying there again. Thank you so much Stefano and Elizabetta and Maya for such a wonderful vacation!! Hope to see you again.[:]
Wow can’t wait to go back
[:en]Our holiday to Barbados was a very special treat also to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were greeted by the lovely Stephano and his wife Isabella on out arrived. Our taxi had also been organised for us which included a guided tour round the supermarket to get everything we might need. The gardens were blooming with stunning flowers and was all very well kept. There were wooden stairs leading up to the apartment where it sat with its own balcony and table so we could sit outside and listen to the sea as it was also right on our doorstep. The area was very quite, not touristy, maybe slightly remote for some but nowhere is far and we much preferred it that way. If you didn’t want to walk to the closet town you could get a bus or a taxi as they were abundant. The apartment was light and airy with ceiling fans in both rooms. Air conditioning was available. It was nicely decorated and very colourful and had just about everything you needed. The floors were tiled and the windows all had net screens. There was plenty of room with a sofa bed in the kitchen dining are and a huge double bedroom which was very comfy with lovely crisp cotton linen which was changed regularly for us along with the towels. For us it was perfect, the beaches were just a stones throw away and very quiet in hurricane season. We stayed for three weeks and did not want to leave. It was perfect. I would very much love to go back and hope that one day we may be able to return.[:]
Staying at Stefanos
[:en]Staying at Stefanos was the best decision, he is always friendly in a good mood wanting to help with your stay in barbados, arranging and coordinating any activity or sport you want to do, and even coordinate a car rental or taxi for you. The apartment is just like you see on the pictures, nice clean and confortable. The spot is ideal if you Want to relax and do sports like surf, windsurf or kitesurf, or relax with a beer watching the sea from your balcony or at the bar&restaurant around the corner.[:]
Una festa di colore 5 *****
[:en]Siamo stati a Yellow Bird Apartment nella seconda parte della nostra vacanza e dobbiamo fare i complimenti a Elisabetta per l'ottimo gusto nell'arredamento e nella scelta dei colori, indovinata e veramente uguale alle foto del sito. L'appartamento è dotato di tutti i comfort, compresa l'aria condizionata, che in certi giorni è stata provvidenziale, pur essendo lo stesso orientato alla brezza dell'oceano, Grazie per l'ospitalità, ci rivedremo l'anno prossimo, inshallah....[:]
Couldn't have landed in a better place!
[:en]The stars must've aligned and landed me in the most suitable location not only for great sea views, water sports, and local attractions, but most importantly a safe and comfortable area where I was able to walk about freely, go in and out of town, enjoy the beach, and meet great Bajan locals and also travelers from all over the world with ease. Eli, and Stefano were gracious hosts, who made sure their guests were comfortable and taken well care of. The yellow bird apartment easily became my home away from home, and was clean and equipt with everything that I needed as a woman traveling alone. I especially enjoyed speaking with Eli about native Italian cuisine, and life in general. All in all the location of Blue Ocean Cottages was entirely ideal, offering beautiful landscape, easy access to local bar Surfers Bay, and into Oistins where marketing and calm turquoise beaches are within simple reach. I highly recommend this location, and personally extend gratitude to Stefano and Eli for sharing their bit of paradise with me.[:]
patrick and margaret in silver sands for one month
[:en]we had a wonderful time in the twenty eight days we were there. the apartment was clean and tidy. every morning we woke to the sound of the sea. stefano and elizabetta couldn't be more helpful, and we would recommend blue ocean cottage to anyone. many thanks[:]
very comfortable apartments
[:en]A quiet and beautiful place almost on the beach. Apartments are very snug, clean and spacious. There is everything for comfortable life: furniture, household appliances, dishes, bathroom, hot water, audio system, wi-fi. Bedclothes and towels were regular changed (every 2-3 days). The owners (Stefano and Elizabetta) are the sweetest people, they did everything for making vacation comfortable and interesting, gave some good advices about excursions and recommended a good instructor of kite surfing. There are some beaches near the apartments. Almost all of them are suitable for windsurfing and kite surfing. The most famous kite surfing spot (Silver rock) is about 10 min on foot. If you don’t want to cook by yourself, there is a surfer’s bay café near the apartments, where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you want to visit other cafés, restaurants (that is strongly recommended) or night clubs you need to go 5-15 min by car or by bus. The bus stop is about 7-10 min from the apartments.[:]
[:en]The place is line home, but in a beautiful county with lovely people. Stefano & Elizabeth, the owners, made us feel like family. They arranged transportation and gave us tips on where to go. The room we stayed in was a cute apartment (the yellow flower room, I think) was perfect for us and just as it was described. It was clean and everything was supplied. The view of the water from the room was just spectacular. There is a small bar within walking distance that was convenient. The propert was close to public transportation and a convenient store. We are ready to come back and stay longer next time!! We loved everything we did!! Everything was awesome. Thank you Stefani & Elizabeth!![:]
Very relaxing and energy boosting
[:en]Our first time at Barbados. Been to several other islands in the Caribbean, but not to Barbados.
Meet and greet was perfect.
The apartment is nice and tidy even if it's more simple than we are normally looking for.
However the apartment works perfectly well. Our first impression was that we were very much out on the countryside but looking for relaxation and a good surf, it is actually the best part of the island,, but you need a car to get around.
The landlord was very helpful and eager to make your stay as pleasant as possible.[:]
Great place to stay for couple or small family
[:en]We had a great time at yellow bird apartment, everything was as described on their web site and Stefano is a very friendly and helpful host. You can see that he loves Barbados and wan'ts to share his enthusiasm with his guests. The location is excellent, it's easy to get to some very nice beaches, Bridgetown, shops and tourist attractions. If you are into water sports it's all very close. We have a toddler and is was fine for him but there are stairs to the apartment so next time we'd book the downstairs apartment that has a small garden out front.[:]
Simply a perfect stay at Yellow Bird Apartment
[:en]My partner and I were delighted with our choice to stay at Yellow Bird Apartment where we stayed for 2 weeks. It certainly met our expectations and measures true to what we had read about the property prior to our stay. We found the apartment very clean, comfortable and fully equipped with everything one needed. Air con was optional but with a steady sea breeze we didn't use it for the whole 2 weeks, the fans kept us cool by night. Very friendly hosts Stefanos and Elisabetta were always at hand when needed and gave great advice on excursions and places to visit around the island. Very happy guests Nathan Wyatt and Andrea Vincze[:]
Four weeks of total relaxation
[:en]As we (me and my partner) were planning to stay four weeks in Barbados the hotel accommodation was not an option for us. We were looking for a house or apartment as near the sea as possible. And we found it: Blue Ocean Cottage! As we were only two we chose Yellow Bird Apt which was perfect for us. Rooms were spacious, kitchen well equipped, small but functional bathroom and all clean. From the terrace you have a sea view with nice sea breeze. Everything was as described. The owner, Stefano, was always just a phone-call away. Anyhow, we did not need any help from him as everything was in perfect order during our stay. Cottage is located 30 min walk away from Oistins. We did not rent a car as there was also the bus stop in the walking distance. Those minibuses operated in a few minute's interval until midnight. Surfer's paradise Silver Sands was just nearby. Even we did not surf ourselves it was nice to watch it from the sandy beach. Daytime there was NO RAIN; few showers during the nights. Location of the Blue Ocean Cottage is very peaceful and also the guests were thoughtful and did not cause any noises. WE SLEPT 10 HOURS EVERY NIGHT! We both love to swim in the sea and the beaches are just stunning in Barbados. It was a holiday in PARADISE.[:]
begli appartamenti seilenziosi e vicini allo spot
[:en]Io e la mia famiglia siamo stati al Blu Ocean Cottage alla fine di dicembre 2014 e abbiamo occupato due appartamenti.
Ci siamo trovati molto bene sia perché la location per chi vuole fare kite è ottima, perché molto vicina (volendo si va anche a piedi), sia perchè gli appartamenti sono silenziosi (anche quando le onde sono molto grosse), molto carini e funzionali.
Stefano e Elisabetta sono molto simpatici e sono stati sempre molto disponibili a soddisfare tutte le nostre richieste.
ahhh dimenticavo che Stefano è un windsurfista forte .... anzi molto forte.[:]
[:en]I stayed 3 weeks at this beautiful place. The Apartment was great and is next to the sea. Some really beautiful beaches are around with pure white sand. A rental car is absolutely needed to get to the supermarkets and to other beaches.
Stefano, the guy who rent the apartments is great. Whenever i had questions or something was to arrange, he was there and offered help. A really friendly guy
I can absolutely recommend this place and would go there again. I really enjoyed my holidays.[:]
A Wonderful Holiday
[:en]We spent 6 weeks at the Blue Ocean Cottage for our holiday. Stefano and Elizabetta had provided great service, and were helpful in every way possible. We spent our holiday in the White Cocunut Studio and found it to be very comfortable, quiet, and very clean. The beach outside the Cottage was magnificent. A car is a must, as there are so many lovely beaches to explore. Barbados is a wonderful island paradise a must to see. There are many restaurants, and so many sights to go visit. We look forwards to coming back in the near future as we had an amazing time. Thank u Stefano and Eli for all your help. Andy and Natalie.[:]
One of the best vacations ever!
[:en]We stayed in the Blue Ocean Cottage ( Yellow Bird Apt. ) for 3 weeks in June. We looked online for a while to find the perfect place to stay and were so glad when we finally booked the Yellow Bird Apartment at Stefano and Elisabettas Blue Ocean Cottage! Everything was exactly how it was described and showed in the Internet, we couldn't have found anything better. The apartment, the location, the beautiful view and great owners made it hard for us to leave!! Stefano and Elisabetta were very helpful, informative, and caring! It was for sure one of the best vacations we had so far. Barbados is an beautiful island with amazing people and the most mesmerizing scenery! And we must say the South Coast is probably the best place to say, it has the best beaches, restaurants and nightlife! The perfect time to visit is for Crop Over!! We will be back soon, thank you Stefano, Elisabetta and Maya![:]
soggiorno a barbados
[:en]ho soggiornato 10 giorni presso il blue ocean cottage e devo dire che sono stato in maniera stupenda grazie alla splendida disponibilità e comptenza del titolare.
splendida posizione su uno dei tratti di costa più belli dell'isola con spiagge incontaminate e deserte.
l'appartamento molto carino, curato in tutti i particolri e molto pulito, come tutto il complesso anche nelle parti comuni.
posto tranquillissimo ma contemporaneamente non distante dalla zone con una vita notturna più animata per chi lo desidera.
lo consiglio a tutti!!!!![:]
“Affordable privately owned apartment"
[:en]I am certainly glad I made the decision to stay in the area of Silver Sands with my girlfriend. Blue Ocean villa has the perfect location to make short trips between the rugged south/east coast and the famous azure waters and golden sands of the west coast - unfortunately in areas densely populated by beachfront hotels and touristy restaurants. It also located within close proximity to the airport and Oistins, which is a small town with a big supermarket and the famous Friday Fish Fry.
Before our stay I was in email contact with Stefano who owns these apartments, he was extremely helpful and informative, even booking our jeep for the 10 days - MAH rent a car (at a much cheaper price then I was quoted elsewhere).
On arrival we were greeted by Stefano and his Partner and shown to our apartment (yellow bird), although a lot smaller then the photos suggest the apartment has everything you need for a basic (slightly oldie worldly) stay in the Caribbean. The bed is comfy and has a basic en suit toilet and shower. The only negatives = lack of a kettle & that the oven either incinerates what’s in it or doesn't cook it at all.
In summary, don’t expect your accommodation budget to go as far it would in Europe but I would categorically advocate staying at Blue Ocean villa for a relatively affordable means to visit an undeniable paradise.
Ps: you need to rent a car[:]
a very good deal in barbados !!
[:en]ottima l'accoglienza dei proprietari Elisabetta e Stefano e della loro simpatica cagnetta maya , abbiamo avuto da loro tutte le indicazioni per muoverci la nostra prima volta in barbados, siamo stati bene per dieci giorni in agosto nell'appartamento Yellow Bird c, composto da una bella stanza da letto matrimoniale ed una cucina abitabile, piccolo ma funzionale e pulito c'è tutto quello che può servire in una casa, un piccolo passerotto tutte le mattine si affaccia per fare colazione con gli ospiti della casa.[:]
Pleasant stay in Silver Sands
[:en]Our stay at Stefano and Elisabetta in their Yellow Bird appartment was wonderful and very relaxing. The place itself is both quiet and close to a huge variety of beaches, restaurants, bars, supermarkets etc.- of course a car is advantageous. Stefano and Elisabetta are very nice persons who cared a lot for any needs or information and provide a charmeful equipped and well maintained environment. we have seen all the other apartements in this place and they are all individual created and very nice.
For surfing it's right in the middel of the spots of the south, each not longer than 5 Minutes drive away. Stefano surfs himself and can give useful advices and rent equipment as well.[:]
Amazing place, people, apartment, acommodation
[:en]For sure one of my best holidays!! A really nice apartment, good located, comfortable and fully equipped with all facilities.A very nice people, managers, who help us find whatever we needed in the island, water sports lessons with really good teachers, information about events happening in the island to have fun, whatever...
A place, apartment, people and holidays five stars!!![:]
Great place to stay
[:en]During Christmas Holidays, we (3 women) stayed at Yellow Bird Apartment in Blue Ocean Cottage... "THE PLACE TO STAY" charming, quiet, safe, clean and the owner Stefano is very nice and accommodating. We did have a great time in this beautiful-paradise island. The rental was next to Surfer Bar where we ate almost every day, and with the bus services we got around easily... You will see us soon![:]
A wonderfully relaxing holiday
[:en]I had a wonderful and relaxing vacation and the warm welcome of the Yellow Bird apartment plays a role in my fond memories of Barbados. The accommodations are lovely and we enjoyed the peacefulness of the Southern coast of the island. The Yellow Bird apartment is a perfect choice for any traveller wishing for an escape to island paradise.[:]
Restful and fun
[:en]The apartment was exactly as depicted in the photos. A very clean and well managed property with all the amenities required for a restful holiday. Stefano and Elisabetta were very welcoming and respectful of our privacy at the same time. I would highly recommend this property to friends and family. We enjoyed the private beaches, easy access to public transportation and friendliness of the locals. Oistins on Friday night is an event not to be missed. We hope to return very soon. Thank you Stefano and Elisabetta.[:]
Lovely Studio, Lovely Landlords
[:en]Coconut Studio met all our expectations, the listing description and photos are very accurate. The landlords live on the property, and are available when necessary, extremely friendly, but not intrusive at all. The studio was very clean. If you don't have a car, Miami Beach is a 40min walk. You can get around by bus, but we found the rental car to be very convenient. There's a nice surfshack open for dinner at 2min walking distance. We had a great stay and would recommend it to our friends.[:]
VERY NICE !
[:en]Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo trascorso una decina di giorni qui.
I cottages sono molto belli, pulitissimi e con una manutenzione continua.
Se amate trascorrere le vacanze lontano dalle colate di cemento dei resort all-inclusive, questo è il posto che fa per voi: vi alzarete al mattino e farete colazione guardando il mare, non sentendo nulla se non gli uccellini. A circa 100 metri avete un ristorante-pub per surfers, buono e non caro, con musica ed "ambiente" molto cool.
Le spiagge di sabbia sono a pochi passi.
Per scordarvi lo stress, questo è il posto giusto.[:]
