YELLOW BIRD APARTMENT

Silver Sands Barbados Apartment Rental Photos and Description

It's a Cottage of 7 different Apartments and Studios in a unique location...

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!

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!

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

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.

AMAZING HOLIDAYS

  • 5 of 5
I stayed 3 weeks at this beautiful place. The Apartment was great and is next to the sea. Some really beautiful beaches are around with pure white sand. A rental car is absolutely needed to get to the supermarkets and to other beaches.
Stefano, the guy who rent the apartments is great. Whenever i had questions or something was to arrange, he was there and offered help. A really friendly guy

I can absolutely recommend this place and would go there again. I really enjoyed my holidays.

A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent 6 weeks at the Blue Ocean Cottage for our holiday. Stefano and Elizabetta had provided great service, and were helpful in every way possible. We spent our holiday in the White Cocunut Studio and found it to be very comfortable, quiet, and very clean. The beach outside the Cottage was magnificent. A car is a must, as there are so many lovely beaches to explore. Barbados is a wonderful island paradise a must to see. There are many restaurants, and so many sights to go visit. We look forwards to coming back in the near future as we had an amazing time. Thank u Stefano and Eli for all your help. Andy and Natalie.

ONE OF THE BEST VACATIONS EVER!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Blue Ocean Cottage ( Yellow Bird Apt. ) for 3 weeks in June. We looked online for a while to find the perfect place to stay and were so glad when we finally booked the Yellow Bird Apartment at Stefano and Elisabettas Blue Ocean Cottage! Everything was exactly how it was described and showed in the Internet, we couldn't have found anything better. The apartment, the location, the beautiful view and great owners made it hard for us to leave!! Stefano and Elisabetta were very helpful, informative, and caring! It was for sure one of the best vacations we had so far. Barbados is an beautiful island with amazing people and the most mesmerizing scenery! And we must say the South Coast is probably the best place to say, it has the best beaches, restaurants and nightlife! The perfect time to visit is for Crop Over!! We will be back soon, thank you Stefano, Elisabetta and Maya!

SOGGIORNO A BARBADOS

  • 4 of 5
ho soggiornato 10 giorni presso il blue ocean cottage e devo dire che sono stato in maniera stupenda grazie alla splendida disponibilità e comptenza del titolare.
splendida posizione su uno dei tratti di costa più belli dell'isola con spiagge incontaminate e deserte.
l'appartamento molto carino, curato in tutti i particolri e molto pulito, come tutto il complesso anche nelle parti comuni.
posto tranquillissimo ma contemporaneamente non distante dalla zone con una vita notturna più animata per chi lo desidera.
lo consiglio a tutti!!!!!

“AFFORDABLE PRIVATELY OWNED APARTMENT"

“Affordable privately owned apartment"
  • 4 of 5
I am certainly glad I made the decision to stay in the area of Silver Sands with my girlfriend. Blue Ocean villa has the perfect location to make short trips between the rugged south/east coast and the famous azure waters and golden sands of the west coast - unfortunately in areas densely populated by beachfront hotels and touristy restaurants. It also located within close proximity to the airport and Oistins, which is a small town with a big supermarket and the famous Friday Fish Fry.

Before our stay I was in email contact with Stefano who owns these apartments, he was extremely helpful and informative, even booking our jeep for the 10 days - MAH rent a car (at a much cheaper price then I was quoted elsewhere).

On arrival we were greeted by Stefano and his Partner and shown to our apartment (yellow bird), although a lot smaller then the photos suggest the apartment has everything you need for a basic (slightly oldie worldly) stay in the Caribbean. The bed is comfy and has a basic en suit toilet and shower. The only negatives = lack of a kettle & that the oven either incinerates what’s in it or doesn't cook it at all.

In summary, don’t expect your accommodation budget to go as far it would in Europe but I would categorically advocate staying at Blue Ocean villa for a relatively affordable means to visit an undeniable paradise.
Ps: you need to rent a car
