Wonderful stay at Ocean Blues
Submitted: November 1, 2011
Stayed: April 2011
My wife and I stayed in the Downstairs Studio at Ocean Blues in April 2011, to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. We had an excellent time.
The studio itself is lovely. Everything is fashioned out of the white stone and it has great charm. Huge comfy bed, ample bathroom and cute kitchen to make brekfast etc. Then you have 2 double doors that open on to a lovely balcony, overlooking the wonderful Batts Rock Beach and Caribbean Sea. Waking up to that every morning was amazing. The room was clean and well maintained.
The house itself is located perfectly on the West Coast, on a main road, but noise is minimal. Lynn was a lovely caretaker and catered for our every need. We hired a jeep for the day and explored the island, so easy to do. All the West Coast restaurants are easily reached by the local buses, and they are so easy to take. A real experience.
We loved having our own private access to the sea below, that was very special for quick dips when it got too hot or a lovely morning / evening swim. We also swam with the resident baby turtle a few times, which was stunning. Snorkelling was good around the local rocks.
The only thing I would say is that the sun deck may get crowded when the house and studios are full. Luckily we only had 2 other people there during our stay, we it was relatively private.
The plunge pool was lovely and gives great views. We also had a nice BBQ on the deck one night.
We would stay at Ocean Blues again. Its a unique setting, right on the water, and we loved our stay

Owner's Response: Sheila and David
Many thanks for taking the time to give such a detailed review of Ocean Blues. We are delighted it was a memorable time for such a special occasion.
In response to the observation on the possibility that the sun deck would be crowded if the Whole House was occupied. For 5 months of the year, usually November through to end of April we as owners occupy the main house which has a full size terrace, so we don't use the sun deck area. It is our experience that this scenario would be an extremely rare occurrance if indeed it would ever happen.
We note you may return to Ocean Blues at sometime in the future, so would like to remind you that you will be eligible for our 10% Loyalty Discount, We look forward to seeing you again.
