About the property

Blue Ocean Cottage

The Cottage design has been conceived to offer our guest a big and brighter open space and also to let them enjoy the very pleasant oceanic breeze constantly present in this part of the island. Blue Ocean Cottage is located in Silver Sands area in the South of the island of Barbados and it is formed by 7 different apartments of different dimensions and positions. All of them are with dining / living / kitchen area fully furnished, bedrooms and private bathrooms. The entire area is surrounded by a wonderful garden rich of Palm and Banano trees, vegetation and flowers; it has a fence around the property and security video cameras. At the ground floor in the back side of the property there is also an external shower and between the 2 units there is a covered condominium washing machine which is possible to use it at a small supplement. In front of the property there is also a big parking area.

All the Apartments are next to the stunning Silver Sands Beach at the southern tip of the beautiful tropical island of Barbados. Being the easternmost of the windward Caribbean islands, the tropical heat is always tempered by the constant gentle north-easterly Trade Winds, cutting down on mosquitos and making Silver Sands one of the best spots in the world for windsurfing and kite surfing.

Blue Ocean Cottage provides a unique combination of fun and relaxation: suffused by the immediate beauty, peace and tranquillity of a palm-fringed paradise; yet close to the buzz and excitement of great clubs and restaurants at nearby St. Lawrence Gap.

Blue Ocean Villa, Yellow Bird Apartment, White Coconut Studio, Sea-view Apartment and Green Garden Apartment are perfect for wind/kite/body surfers who want to enjoy world-class surfing at Silver Sands beach or Silver Rock beach; lovers who want to laze on tiny unspoilt coral white sandy beach; anyone wanting to de-stress and get fit.

Local wind and Kitesurfing Informations: This island is a windsurfer's and kite surfer’s mecca. It’s one of the best windsurfing spots of the world. East and North-east winds are constant during the entire year and with them they bring great waves for jumping or riding them with a kite or windsurf board. The incredible spot’s number aloud all levels of wind-kite surfers to enjoy this magic place. South Coast is better for experts, professionals and people who are starting to move on the reef. West coast is better for beginners.

The water temperature is unbelievable, 26°/28° C warm and constant all year round. During the period of November and June the Trade winds start to blow constantly and between December and April the conditions are absolutely perfect with a very high percentage of strong and constant winds mostly in January and February. The best spot is absolutely Silver Sands beach!

About Stefano Porcu

NOT many words to say... our guest reviews reflect how we are and what we do. We wait for you in our little portion of Paradise!

Why Stefano Porcu chose Christ Church

If you love the wood, something unique, special, charming, in a particular quite area... this is the right property to be! Because this is the only Cottage of the entire area, made by a French architect with a Bajan engineer with a unique style; it's managed by italian people with an experience of more than 20 years in the tourism industry. The Blue Ocean Cottage has mosquito-nets in all the apartments and most of the furnitures are italian; some apartments and studios have also the air conditioning with independent splits. There is a big parking space in front of the property; The Cottage is very very clean (it's a must for us) fully equipped and the ocean sound is sweet and not so strong as it is in properties which are to close to the sea. It's an absolute secure place, all fenced-in with security cameras and the owners live inside the property

What makes this apartment unique

Breeze place, very close to the ocean (70 meters), with a close bar and restaurant, bus stop and little grocery. Unique white thin sandy beaches around (Silver Sands, Rescue Beach, Silver Rock), no traffic at all, not too many constructions around. It's still a wild spot and place where you can even admire monkeys, parrots, hamming birds, whales and turtles.

Couldn't have landed in a better place!

  • 5 of 5

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.

very comfortable apartments

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very Homey!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Four weeks of total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

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.
