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 the Owner
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.

Lazy in Barbados
It was great! Stefano arranged for Mr. Rodney to meet us at the airport. He was so friendly and even took us to a minimart to get some basic groceries before we even got to the apartment! Now that is service! The apartment was clean and well-maintained. There was an outside shower to clean the sand off after time at the beach. There were clothes lines and laundry facilities available, too. Stefano had information pamphlets available as well as his verbal knowledge - which was most helpful. We took the #11 minibus into Bridgetown several times - was way easier then driving and then having to park at car! Even though it was hot, there is good ventilation in the place and we were comfortable, day and night. We did a lot of walking up and down the coastline. Some of it is beaches and other parts are rocky areas with pathways between the beaches. We went to Surfer's Bay Bar, which was very close to the apartment, every day for Happy Hour - if not dinner, too. We could watch the sunset and enjoy a nice drink. We would recommend this apartment - for sure!
Fantastic 10 night New Year get away!
What can I say?!
We had a blast, Stefano was hugely accommodating and the room was fantastic! After traveling the island we came to the conclusion that we were situated in the best place! We're not fans of the resort life and we like to have the option to cook and the kitchen was spot on!
If you're into Kite boarding (you would of heard of this place), sun lounging, and/or Surfing this is the place to be (there's a nice little beach to catch a few casual waves, watch out for the rocks though beach right! Or if you don't mind a 15 to 20 minute trek to South Point there's two decent spots, one for the short and one for the long).
Great spots to eat surrounds you at Surfers Bay and 'Oistens' is only a dollar away!
If I had only one bit of feedback, paying the holding deposit could have been easier, but I'm not that familiar with SWIFT transactions, but now I am.
I thoroughly recommend, Stefano and co keep a great spot and I would definitely visit again!
Don't hesitate on this rental!
My stay was excellent! The owner Stefano was very welcoming and accommodating. I had a comfortable stay in this attractively decorated cottage. Peaceful! No complaints at all. Walks by the ocean are breathtaking. I highly recommend this rental.
We had a really nice time in the white coconut studio! Stefano was really kind and helpful! He was still there to organize different things for us (car rental, tour with a catamaran...). In the studio you can find everything you need to have a great time. It was clean and well-resourced. Near the studio you can find a beach bar and you need just 10 minutes to the bus station. From there you can reach Oistins in a view minutes- you can find there everything you need (supermarkets, fish fry...).
Altogether we can recommend the studio!!!
White Coconut Studio - wonderful !
Firstly, I'd like to say a very big thank you to Stefano and Elisabetta for being such wonderful hosts / landlords! White Coconut Studio is spacious, modern and the use of Wi-Fi was much appreciated. The kitchen area is great (I just love cooking on gas!) with an ample fridge/freezer. I would recommend hiring a car so that not only can you get to explore the rest of beautiful Barbados, you can get to the local supermarket in Oistins and stock up on groceries. There is a large car park opposite the main gate to the apartments so no parking problems whatsoever. The bathroom is very spacious with a large powerful shower, bliss ! The studio itself doesn't overlook the sea, although you only have to step out of the door and walk along the balcony a few feet and there you have a lovely view of the ocean. Literally around the Corner is Surfer's Bay bar and grill, where you will be made to feel very welcome. The food is wonderful, especially the macaroni pie! Catch of the Day is usually out of this world too, the fish is so fresh of course, with Oistins (fishing village) so close by. I would not hesitate in recommending White Coconut Studio, I miss being there so much. Hope to see you again soon Stefano and Elisabetta xx
Peace and Tranquility
We arrived to a clean, cool, beautiful apartment that felt very much like home while we stayed there. It is located moments from stunning secluded white sandy beaches that are picture postcard perfect. The apartment has excellent facilities including a particularly well equipped fully functioning kitchen, which was imported from Italy. The shower is big enough for 2 people, with a powerful source of hot water - in fact the photos on the website don't do it justice.
Stefano and Elisabetta went above and beyond with their help and recommendations from a memorable trip snorkelling on El Tigre with turtles and through shipwrecks, to booking a gastronomic romantic meal on our last night at a restaurant called Champers.
There are cameras around the property, making you feel safe and secure, in an area that although lovely, is quite remote. There is a fantastic relaxed bar on the same street, where you will be greeted by an English owner, great food and live music - thankfully Stefano pointed us in the direction on our first night and in our 3 week stay we became regular visitors.
For the surfer in you (kite, board or wind) there is a beach up the road run by Brian Talma who runs a school for all types of surfing, however, if you want somewhere less busy that is even closer to Blue Ocean Cottage, the beach in front of the closed down Silver Sands Hotel, is quiet and perfect for a more experienced surfer or in my case sunbather. Beware though, there are no sun loungers, parasols or drinks waiters, but there are also no throngs of tourists, so it feels like your own personal beach, which is a pleasure.
From a transport perspective Stefano and Elisabetta recommended a charming cab driver called Rodney, but if you want to take the number 11 minibus it's 5 minutes walk away and goes all the way to Bridgetown - the 11 is definitely an experience not to be missed!
Blue Ocean Cottage is the place to stay if you want a warm friendly home from home, with peace and quiet. If you're looking for party central stay in St Lawrence Gap; this is the place to come to, for anyone that wants to unwind, spend time on untouched beaches and enjoy peace, quiet and tranquility.
We've been back a month, it feels like a lifetime ago and we both desperately miss it. Enjoy your time there, those moments are precious and will stay with you forever.
Thank you Stefano and Elisabetta for an amazing holiday you are lovely people and fantastic hosts.
