About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

South Ocean Villa is a new property located in the heart of the South Coast on the beach. It is 1,200 square feet of tile, marble, and coral. It shares the same beach as four of Barbados finest resorts including the Barbados Hilton. The unique location and design by world famous architect Ian Morrison, offers breathtaking views of the entire South Coast of the island with no obstruction, and it is possibly the finest view on the island. The property sits literally in the sea and affords some of the most intensely beautiful sunrises and sunsets to be found anywhere. Its location on the main road insures that you can walk to any of the many restaurants, shopping centers, banks, and grocery stores in the area. Public transportation is located right out the door. With over 50 years experience on the island, we can help you maximize and economize your visit to our special "paradise." They just completed a new government Boardwalk which links the Hilton Beach with Rockley Beach. It is about 2 miles long and is a great place to jog, walk, and explore along the sea. Truly a beautiful addition and it is located right outside your door.

Enjoy the sound of the surf off one of your two balconies. Swim in the private pool and bask in the sun on the private sundeck. Venture on the beach to swim in the sea or walk for miles.

About Mark Tillman

My family has traveled and wintered in beautiful Barbados for over 50 years. We are 4th generation hospitality professionals who understand what the word "hospitality" is all about. We searched the island to ensure that "our piece of paradise" is both comfortable and unique. We look forward to having you as our guests.

Mark Tillman purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mark Tillman chose Hastings

In our business, it is "Location, Location, Location." We believe we found it here.

What makes this villa unique

The addition of the new government boardwalk has increased the value of enjoyment with this property. You are now able to move quickly and safely to the beach, restaurants, and shops all while enjoying the beautiful sea. It is great to people watch and to burn off some of those "Rum Calories."

Guestbook comments from the owner

Overall the propery was as listed and the island was beautiful. We had a wonderful stay. Organizing the rental was quite easy, however our security deposit was never returned nor was our request for an explaination for this. We were rarely in the condo as there were many attractions to visit, so we are still awaiting an answer.

Notes:
There is a new government boardwalk right outside the villa that enables you to run, walk, and explore. It is on the sea and links the Hilton Beach to Acura (Rockley) Beach. It is about 2 miles and is a truly beautiful addition. My family has been visiting Barbados for over 50 years and we know all the 'ins and outs' of this beautiful island. We believe that our villa has the finest location and view on the South Coast. We are close to fine/casual dining, shopping, grocery stores and entertainment. We are located on the main bus route and minutes from the airport, Bridgetown and all entertainment districts. We are private, quiet, secluded, and secure. We are minutes from the police station and our area is patrolled regularly. We have island agents in our employ that will do whatever it takes to ensure that you have all that you expect and more. We update our villa guide yearly to provide you with all that is worthwhile to see and do close by and throughout the island. ENJOY!

Exceptional Experience and Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous place, Mark and Susyn were amazing hosts. They truly know how to make the trip easy with their extensive itinerary and recommendations. The villa was spotless, very comfortable, and so close to everything. Hastings is the perfect area to be because you are right in the middle of Bridgetown and St. Lawrence Gap. Also being close to the airport and Oistins was amazing. We loved the walk to Dover and Carlisle Beaches and all the fun bars/restaurants on the Boardwalk. The amazing view from the Villa also made us able to spot the sea turtles right from our balcony so we were able to run down and swim with them. Mark and Susyn were also very helpful while we were there and responded to our emails quickly to help us with certain questions. I can't wait to go back, thanks again for the best honeymoon!

Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

Had a fabulous time at the condo. Well equipped and nice space. Location is good. Close proximity to lots of stuff and right on the ocean. The boardwalk being right in front gives you the opportunity to not have to walk on the road which could be dangerous based on the speed some of the vehicles are going when they pass thru this area. Would definitely recommend this space for anyone interested in visiting Barbados. Missed the sea turtles, none to be found anywhere.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Our villa has it all. Location, upscale amenities, beautiful views and privacy. Sunrises, sunsets, swimming turtles, people watching can all be done from the privacy of our villa. Need some exercise? Walk/jog on the new government Boardwalk past beautiful beaches, fine restaurants, and quaint shops. Need more nightlife? Take a jitney or cab right outside the door to the many nightclubs and taverns along the main road. Want quiet time? Sit by the villa pool with a good book and enjoy the sounds of the Ocean as the gentle breezes lull you to relax and renew.

Awesome home away from home ❤️❤️

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a little over 2 weeks, best choice ever. My kids and husband loved it, the view from the balcony is awesome, we even saw turtles swimming, the villa was nice and clean, no complaints, we enjoyed the ocean sounds at night. Even though the beach was right there we enjoyed our morning walks to Accra beach, not too far and great excercise, which you need if you plan on eating the awesome Island food. The owners were very friendly and didn't lie when they told me that I would have a great time staying there. Hoping to return next year.

BEAUTIFUL CONDO AND LOCATION- GORGEOUS VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 2 weeks in February. The weather was fantastic and the views from this condo are so amazing! You can watch the turtles from the balcony of the condo while having your morning coffee - yes the water is THAT clear! The condo is big and clean and it had everything we needed and we had an issue with the A/C upon arrival but Mark was on this for us and took care of it! The only downfall we had was no beach chairs or umbrella and going over to hotel down the beach to use theirs, the security guard said no you aren't a guest here you can't use our chairs. They are for guests only and I guess they were full occupancy and their guests have been complaining of having nowhere to sit by the beach. So we spent our time mostly at the pool/sundeck at the condo. Then when we wanted to cool off- we went out to the ocean and floated in the beautiful clear waters. The people on the island are very helpful and friendly. We walked to most things but also took the little white ZR vans to get around. They are all over and cheap and some are very entertaining to be on with the music. We also walked over to the horse track, which is a fun experience as well. So thank you Mark and Susyn for sharing your beautiful condo in paradise with us. I sure hope that some day we can come back again. WE would stay here again in a heartbeat if returning to Barbados.

A fabulous spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year staying in the "Boardwalk" area of the South Coast and our first at Mark and Susyn's place. It was by far the nicest location we have had! In fact, it is hard to imagine a better location in the area. The unit sits on the 6th floor on the East side of the complex which gives it the best views and the most privacy of any of the units in the building (except for the penthouse above). The owners were very pleasant to deal with and their attention to detail was outstanding. The place was clean and very nicely furnished. Air conditioning was unnecessary with the lovely ocean breezes whistling through the place all day and night. The pool area was quiet and immacualtly maintained. We spent mornings counting the turtles in the sea and the evenings toasting the sunsets all from the very private balcony. A wonderful and memorable month!!
