About Chloe

This house is owned by my Grandmother Christine, but managed by me, her granddaughter. Granny was born and bred in Barbados and has a special love for collecting unique and special property throughout the isalnd. This property is one of her favorites and we are so happy to share it with you.

Why Chloe chose Barbados

The house has been owned and operated by our family for over 50 years. My grandmother has overseen countless renovations and updates and it is a property very close to our heart. It is a beautiful family home on an exquisite, private beach with the most beautiful blue water and white sand. Stay with us and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay in your house. We liked the fact that it was a whole

house with privacy and that it was very clean and comfortable. We loved

the fact that the kitchen was fully functional and that you had BBQ grill.

We liked the location and having the beach behind it. It was perfect for

snorkeling. The washing machine and dryer worked fine and so did the internet connection.

Thank you for all of the above.

Well kept home with beautiful beach view but no swimming availability

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful clean and all amenities posted worked. Relaxing sound of waves and beach view. On bus line. No screens! Paid 250/night for 6 nights ($1500) to be on a beach where I could swim. Was told that 200 feet away was good swimming beach but not so. You cannot swim at this beach or even at the nearby hotel's beach because of all the rocks. Listing misrepresents the facts and I feel taken advantage of due to exorbitant price for a non-swimmable beach. Very disappointed that I had to take the bus to beach which was exactly what I did not want to do and why I rented this property.

Great Stay at Ocean Hollow

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Ocean Hollow. The beach house has all the necessities for a comfortable vacation. It was great eating breakfast on the back porch and listening to the ocean waves. Although only the bedrooms are air conditioned there was always an ocean breeze flowing through the house. There is really no beach to speak of on the property especially during high tide when the waves wash right up to the gate shown in the picture. You could pay US$ 110 per person to get a day pass at the resort next door to use their beach (includes lunch & all drinks). Instead we found a beautiful, secluded beach only 2 km from OH. OH is located in the main tourist section of the island so it is close to all the best restaurants, The food was great but dining out is more expensive than in the States because of the 17.5% VAT. If you rent a car be advised that the road/town name signage is nonexistent; make sure you have an international cell phone with GPS. If you use Google Maps for directions from the airport (BGI) to the property it will direct you via the Adams/Barrow/Cummings Highways. This combination of highways is abbreviated ABC Highway on all roundabout signs. It took us a few days to figure that out. We visited the Andromeda Botanical Gardens, Bathsheba, the Flower Forest, Hunte's Garden (a must see), Welchman Hall Gully and the Mt Gay Rum Distillery. Considering that the temperature in Barbados was 70 degrees warmer than back home we will definitely consider coming back to Ocean Hollow again.

Fantastic Holiday, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Hollow - you were our dream come true! Staying on the gorgeous west coast, where we could swim several times a day in an ocean which seemed like an infinite pool! Long walks on the beach which seemed to belong to our family alone when we headed south. When we wanted to find water sport activities, we walked northward a few metres to the Crystal Cove hotel where we had so many choices! Tip: If you enjoy snorkeling, bring your gear, or could buy at nearby shops in Holetown - we encountered some unique fish!

The house is spotless, so comfortable, kitchen fully equipped and great to have the BBQ! It was lovely to take the lounge chairs under the majestic mahogany trees, lying there with the water lapping barely metres away, sipping homemade cocktails! The shade of the trees kept the house cool on an afternoon and every evening we awaited the sensational sunsets - breathtaking every time!

After writing this review, how we long to return as soon as we can!

A special Thank You to Chloe, an exceptional house manager who truly made us feel welcome and was ever so helpful with advice!
