It is exposed to the South/South-East and it gets pleasure from a constant breeze.
Nearly every day you can admire the small and fast humming-bird which suck the nectar’s flowers of the surrounding garden.

(English) Great view of the ocean
[:en]We were lucky to catch a few days last minute here. Great view of the ocean, a little bit of wildlife in the form of local monkeys, and not too far to get into Oistins by van, or a 30 min walk if you prefer. Thanks Stefano for a wonderful few days - definitely recommended.[:]
(English) Excellent Host
[:en]Stefano and Elisabetta were excellent host! Very friendly! The apartment was nice and clean, we got fresh towels when we got there and again after three days. Two big fans to cool the apt (no air con). The kitchen had everything we needed to make dinner. It’s a quiet area with friendly people near the beach. Totally recommend it![:]
(English) “Cottage für Erholungssuchende”
[:en]Wir waren zu zweit zwei Wochen auf Barabados und haben bei Stefano und Elisabetta im Ocean View Cottage gewohnt. Das Apartement liegt in einer ruhigen Wohngegend nahe dem Silver Sands Beach. Von dort ist man mit dem Auto in 10min am Oistins Fischmarkt und an diversen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Das Apartement ist gepflegt, sauber und gut grundausgestattet. Der Wohn- und Küchenbereich und das Bad haben eine offene Bauweise, d.h. es gibt keine verglasten, verschließbaren Fenster. Man hört folglich das Meer und die Natur beim Kochen und Essen. Anfangs mag das komisch wirken, ist jedoch sehr angenehm - gerade auch wenn eine angenehme Brise von draußen rein weht. Im Schlafzimmer ist eine Klimaanlage installiert, die gut funktioniert. Beim Frühstück auf der Terasse kann man einen morgendlichen, ersten Blick auf das Karibische Meer werfen. Alle drei Tage werden die Handtücher gewechelt (sowohl in der Küche als auch im Bad), einmal wöchtentlich wird das Bett frisch bezogen. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Stefano ist da, wenn man ihn braucht, gibt Tipps bei Bedarf und sorgt für einen sorglosen Aufenthalt. Dankeschön.[:]
[:en]Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Stefano who provided the necessary information. The apartment is very spacious and most importantly-clean! The Wi-Fi was very fast. As it was our fourth week on the island we didn’t rent a car and used the local vans (number 11) to go Oistins – cheap, friendly and convenient, if you don’t mind walking to the bus stop located about 5 minutes from the apartment. There is a great beach bar very close to the apartment (1 minute walking), great music, food and view of the ocean. We welcomed the quiet location of this apartment, after staying in an apartment next to the busy main road in Worthing. All in all, great apartment, great location, lovely island and beaches. We would most certainly recommend the Sea-view apartment! Stefano and Elisabetta, thank you for hosting us![:]
(English) Perfect stay
[:en]Stefano and his wife were wonderful, as was the apartment. We will definitely stay with them again the next time we visit Barbados.[:]
(English) 8 jours magnifiques
[:en]Accueil très chaleureux, arrivés avec nos 3 filles un dimanche fin après-midi, Elisabeth et Stefano se sont rendus disponibles allant jusqu’à nous emmener faire quelques courses pour notre premier dîner. Encore merci Eli
Logement parfaitement propre, chambre spacieuse et ventilée. Une vue superbe sur l'océan pour le petit déjeuner.
Toujours prêt à donner le maximum pour rendre le séjour le plus agréable possible, attentifs aux passions de chacun d'entre nous (un grand merci de la part de Charlotte qui a pu assister avec joie à la baignade matinale des chevaux de course à Bridgetown).
Location possible de matériel de sport (surf, funboard...), du très bon matériel. Merci à Stefano pour les planches de surf.
Superbe sortie en catamaran sur les conseils d'Eli.
Que de supers souvenirs en famille, un pur bonheur !
Au plaisir de vous revoir

(English) Wunderschönes Appartement in Barbados
[:en]Wir waren 2 Wochen bei Stefano in seinem Sea-View Apartment. Das Appartement ist einfach klasse. Super sauber und sehr schön groß.
Stefano ist ein großartiger Gastgeber der immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stand wenn wir etwas hatten.
Ich kann dieses Appartement sowie Stefano einfach nur weiterempfehlen.[:]
(English) 8 days in paradise
[:en]This was our third trip to Barbados in as many years. There is only one place to stay. Blue Ocean Cottage. We love it there or here. Very clean, quiet and comfy.
Stefano and Elisabetta are always helpful. The location is close to Oistens, The Gap, Bridgetowne. a short walk to Surfers pub. We have a car, but you can take a cab pretty much anywhere, for a reasonble fare.Best of both worlds on the island.We will always stay there.
Thanks Stefano and Elisabetta
see you next year
Ian and Deb[:]
(English) 10 star vacation!
[:en]This is our third time in Barbados and we keep returning to Blue Ocean Cottages. Here are just some of the reasons why you should book your stay here:
1. the owner Stefano is absolutely an amazing host. He will take such good care of you and has all the inside knowledge of island. He has directed us to some of the best surf spots and definitely puts in a lot of heart into taking care of his guests.
2. the location is IDEAL! Quiet, safe ocean-side street with a dead end so there's barely any traffic. Its only 5 minutes to Oistins for shopping, groceries, fish fry, restaurants etc..., A beach-side restaurant/cafe with fabulous food at the end of the street and most of all a gorgeous beach only steps away that never has anyone on it....you can sunbathe, walk, surf, swim, or share a nice glass of wine with your special someone watching the sunset :)
3. the accomodations: you can find nearly anything that will suit your budget or your style here without compromising quality. Each unit is unique and decorated beautifully. THE BEDS ARE SUPER COMFORTABLE! We have such good sleeps here that you will want to take the bed home with you. Each unit we have stayed in is VERY CLEAN. It shows that the place is really well looked after. The cottage is next to the ocean so a beautiful sea breeze comes through which leaves you refreshed and feeling great. There is A/C if you need it but we didn't and it was never stuffy. The gardens around are beautiful, there are tall palm and banana trees, gorgeous flowers and the opportunity to see a lot of nice birds, lizards, geckos, etc. If you have a group its perfect because everyone can be together but have their own apartments without constantly being together sharing kitchens and washrooms etc. Also the showers here are amazing. Spacious and well built!!! Very clean.
4. Overall feel: Staying at a resort has its perks..sure. but the feeling you will get from staying in this gorgeous little piece of paradise without all the numerous people will leave you feeling so rested. Its really the perfect vacation spot that has the feel of home. We always feel rested and relaxed here and most of all always welcomed and appreciated. The friendships we have formed will continue to be one of the many reasons we return to Blue Ocean every year. Thank you Stefano, Ale and Maya for yet another memorable vacation :) See you next year!![:]
(English) Private paradise on a coral island in the sea
[:en]We just got home from our stay at the blue ocean cottage. My wife and I have the most amazing time ever. What a beautiful Island! Stefano was fantastic! Referred us to the most amazing excursion we have ever been on! The Island! Stefano was fantastic! Referred us to the most amazing excursion we have ever been on! The cut itself cottage itself was immaculately clean and everything we needed was right there. I would highly recommend that you plan at least 10 days on this beautiful tranquil Island and that you definitely stay at the blue Ocean cottage!! If you don't like the big hustling bustle of overcrowded over priced hotels and you like to be a little off the beaten path and get a real feel of the island, this is the place for you!![:]
(English) Barbados Paradise Spot
[:en]From the start of planning and organising our vacation to Barbados, we were very luck to find Stefano!!! This was our first time in Barbados and did not know anyone. Stefano made our 3 week vacation in Barbados stressless, unbelievable and fun for our entire family (5 people). We loved it and plan to return in the future. Stefano's advice helped us find great airfare for our entire family, (which is not easy), shuttle to/from the airport, and where to go for the best beaches for surfing, kitesurfing, snorkelling, etc. Even though he was very busy building a new apartment, he alway made time to stop by to see if we needed anything. Stefano was always open and very willing to help us find what we needed being shopping, buying fish or good places to eat local Bajan food. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed during our 3 week vacation. The car, surfboards, boogie boards we rented from him was a perfect option for the family to try to learn to catch the waves. We appreciate everything Stefano did for us!! We look forward to returning to Barbados again!! THANK YOU Stefano!![:]
[:en]Recently my husband and I have been on Barbados for the second time.
We decided on the sea view apartment and I must say, we were stunned.
What a great choice!
The owner Stefano is such a nice and accommodating person.
Everything went very well and was exactly as we had asked for and expected.
There is nothing else to say but that we had a great time, and we would like to extend our deepest appreciation.
If you continue your great service all of your guests will be very, very satisfied.
Again, many thanks, best wishes, also to your sweet dog Maya.

(English) Excellent Location, all the amenities you'll need!
[:en]The Blue Ocean Cottage was clean, aesthetic and came with everything we needed, including a blender! Stefano was close by to help with whatever we needed. He arranged a shuttle to and from the airport with Mr. Rodney for a very reasonable cost, snorkeling equipment was available on site, and there was a car for us to rent...which is recommended as you'll want to tour the island. He even arranged our drivers licences! The location is quiet and just a few minutes by bike or car from Miami Beach and Oistins...gorgeous and convenient! Definitely check out the Wildlife Reserve at feeding time and be sure to try the marlin and cou-cou...delicious! We hope to visit again next year![:]
(English) excellent apartment in Barbados
[:en]Clean and well maintained apartment in quiet location close to kite and surfing beaches. Ocean view, cool and breezy. Fully equipped kitchen. Excellent outdoor bar and restaurant 100 down the road on water. Nice walk on path along rocky sea coast with small beach near by. Recommend renting car to visit Miami Beach 3 km away and Carlisle Bay 15 km away, and do shopping in Oistens. Stefano can organize everything you need including surf and sup boards at good price.[:]
(English) Super nice place super smooth management
[:en]This was our first time on Barbados where we went for surfing. We got referred to Blue Ocean Cottage by our surf instructor and we took it. Best choice. Stefano was super responsive and helpful from the minute. He even helped us finding accommodation for the first night when he was booked. Our flight was delayed and we landed at 5 in the morning, so he stayed awake to make sure we get into the apartment and he arranged transportation from the airport. He checked on us every day and he generously gave us advice on surfing, food, car-rental...everything. Best host ever! This how to do business!
We stayed in the Sea-view apartment, on the first floor. The apartment is very very nice. Looks exactly like on the pictures. It is extremely clean. The house is very cute. If you need two rooms and have money stay in the big apartment on the second floor. That is awesome.
The location was ideal for us. Very quite street, with see view, but everything is in waking distance. Bus stop is about 5 minutes (city is about 15 minutes thrilling bus-ride) most popular kite-surfing site is 6-7 minutes, Surfer's Bar (coolest place!!!!) where you can eat, drink, take yoga classes or just hang out is about 70 meters.
So great management, very nice apartment, great location. We'll come back.
(English) Great Vacation at a Great Place
[:en]We have had a very nice stay in the Blue Ocean Cottage. Our expectations set by the description were very well in line with what we found. The apartment was clean and well maintained. Stefano and Elisabetta, the managers, did a great job by helping us with arrangements and information. No matter, what we needed: a dentist on a Saturday, a Sail repair on new years eve, a rental car - no problem...
We would recommend this accommodation to our friends. We have been in Barbados for Windsurfing. The Silver Sands Beach is in walking distance.[:]
(English) Magnificent Place; Blue Ocean Cottage!
[:en]Our 10 day stay at the Blue Ocean Cottage was Excellent. The Sea View apartment we stayed in was Wonderful, the apartment was newly renovated and everything was in pristine condition. The owners Stefano and his wife Elisabetta, were very kind, and attentive. their customer service skills were A+. We definitely recommend the Blue Ocean Cottage to anyone visiting beautiful Barbados. we loved the fact that the sea was just a few steps from our apartment. We also enjoyed swimming with the turtles which should be a (must) when visiting Barbados. Dover beach was also a great beach to visit among the many beaches that Barbados offers, as there is plenty of water sports and activities/restaurants/shops available there.[:]
(English) Fantastic stay
[:en]I've been at Sea-view Apartment in Blue Ocean Cottage, Silver Sands - Barbados in May 2014. The Apartment has been completely renovated, new kitchen, floors, bedroom, bathroom, patio and furnitures, which make the holiday even more enjoyable. The view of the ocean, which is just a few meters from the house completes the great set of the apartment equipped with everything you could want. We will come back in the next few years.[:]
(English) QUIET AND COMFY!
[:en]BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN AND COZY APARTMENT WITH SEA VIEW! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND![:]
(English) The best apartments at the lowest price!
[:en]Very nice and clean rooms, with fantastic view of the ocean. Strategical location, the best surf and windsurf spots of the island and the bus stop for the city are just 5 minute walking. The owners, Stefano and Elisasbetta, are very TOP kindness and helpful ! Highly recommended!!![:]
(English) Most relaxing spot in Barbados!!!!!
[:en]An Oasis on the most beautiful island in the Caribbean. Just like the listing. Very comfortable apartment, felt at home as soon as we got there. If you don't want to cook, the Surfers Pub is just around the corner.I have already recommended this property to my friends. Stefano and Elisabetta are fantastic, very helpful and accommodating. Comfortable ocean breezes all the time. Oistens is 5-10 min away by cab. Rodney is the best cab driver there. Ask him he knows where everything is. There are 2 small secluded beaches within waliking distances. We had a wonder time, would go back in a minute. Thank you Stefano and Elisabetta.[:]
(English) Still wanted to be there!
[:en]We had a great time during our stay at the Blue Ocean Cottage in september 2013.
The cottage was nice, clean, well-maintained and we enjoyned the sea-view. The owners provided a very good service and hospitality. The low season is a great time to stay; nice, quiet and the beaches of our own! We certainly would recommend this property and we will come back as soon as possible,

(English) Wonderful Stay, Great Value
[:en]I stayed at this apartment complex for over 1 1/2 months while in Barbados. I've stayed in quite a few places in Barbados' south coast, and this complex is definitely my favorite.
My place had an ocean view, and the complex is SO close to the beach that you get a lovely breeze and hardly ever turn on the air conditioning. There's free wifi, cable, and each place is well-furnished and charming. Beds are comfortable and the place is very well maintained by the Italian couple living there. They're great hosts, very knowledgeable about the local area and about surfing, kiteboarding, and other water sports.
Security is very good at the complex, too, with video cameras. Don't leave anything in your cars or laying about, of course (Barbados is safe, just don't attract crime to you, you know?). The neighborhood is safe as well.
I loved that I could walk to two very different beaches (one perfect for body and kiteboarding, another for swimming!) and could walk to Surfer's Bay Bar, which is the best bar on the whole island.
If you're surfing, many of the surf schools will pick you up there, or you can hike about 1/4-1/2 mile up the road to a bus that'll get you anywhere you need to go on the island. If you're staying a shorter amount of time and want to maximize your trip, consider getting a car while staying there.
Overall, this a fantastic spot to be. Have fun![:]
