Overview

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 The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Christ Church

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!

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!!

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.

Getting better all the time

  • 5 of 5

This has been our property for over 12 years and throughout this journey, Susyn and I have enjoyed sharing our island home and a bit of paradise in Barbados. My mom and Dad spent winters here for over 50 years and taught us much about the island, culture, and dos and don'ts of respect for the people and the beauty around you. Susyn and I continue to improve the island experience as seen through our hospitality by updating our homes furnishings, appliances and the little things that make a place a home. WE hope your stay with us leaves you satisfied and fills a spot in your soul as this place does for us. Enjoy the Sunset...

Perfect location. Great unit.

  • 4 of 5

The unit itself was spacious and bright. Exit one side of building and you are on the boardwalk at the beach. Exit the other side and you are on the main road close to restaurants. The AC in the main area was disabled but the overhead fans kept it comfortable. AC in bedrooms worked very well. Overall, I highly recommend it.

Crop Over 2016

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this condo 2 of the last 4 years we have visited Barbados The location remains idyllic---near the beach, secure, near restaurants and shopping! The actual condo is also “nice”---2 bedrooms, kitchen, living area, two balconies with an ocean view! Noticeable problems have, however, become obvious: minor rusting on the refrigerator and door locks can easily be fixed; while there, the AC in the small bedroom was fixed so that it blows cold air. However, the biggest problem is that the living-family room area’s air-conditioning has been disconnected! Indeed, the air-conditioning in BOTH bedrooms operate, but the AC in the main housing areas has been disconnected (by order of the owner). This means that---because very few individuals spend the majority of their (in condo) time in the bedrooms, the heat in the larger part of the condo can become over-bearing! I can understand why (perhaps) the disconnection was made—too many renters leaving it on for too long! However, that should not be reason enough to “punish” those who have (in the past) followed the instructions to turn-off the AC when not in the condo or to leave the AC on for all “hours” of the day. There were miserable hours spent in the main housing areas. Perhaps a “timer” would be beneficial in preventing mis-use!
