Water sports are available nearby. At night, floodlight illuminates the terraces, garden and pool. You can see magnificent sunsets reflected in the wonderful Caribbean Sea. Terraces/garden offer privacy for sunbathing. The property is unsuitable for young and unsupervised children and infirm elderly.

April 05 We have been to Barbados several times but never in such a beautiful setting as Ocean Blues.A big thanks to Marci. Natalie & Dave
Oct.05 We have had 10 wonderful days at Ocean Blues - everything has been fantastic - snorkelling with the fishes, watching the birds and sunsets, exploring the island, - sheer heaven. Marci has looked after us very well. We've loved every minute and are very sad to go. However, we'll be back very soon and for longer next time. Annette and Geoff Hardaker
Jan.06 We had a wonderful time in Barbados and thought the studio apartment was excellent, the maid service was second to none and the view is to die for - we will definitely book with you again. Lackey Household
Aug.06 A big 'thank you' for making the arrangements that gave us a wonderful break at Ocean Blues. We found the apartment to be absolutely perfect for us and made good use of the facilities there. Marci of course was delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Neil Morris
