About the property

Blue Ocean & Sweet Jewel Apts.

Blue Ocean Cottage and Sweet Jewel Apartments are located in Silver Sands area in the South of the island of Barbados and they are in total 12 different apartments for dimensions, furnitures, expositions and prices.

All of them are with dining / living / kitchen area fully furnished, bedrooms and private bathrooms. The 2 entire areas are surrounded by a wonderful garden rich of palm trees, vegetation and flowers, with a fence and they are monitored by security video cameras. In front of the properties there is also a big parking area.

The Cottage: Blue Ocean Cottage is located next to the stunning Silver Sands surfing 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 mosquitoes and making Silver Sands one of the best spots in the world for windsurfing and kite surfing.

Blue Ocean Cottage and Sweet Jewel Apartments provide a unique combination of fun and relaxation: suffused by the immediate beauty, peace and tranquillity of a palm-fringed surfer’s paradise; yet close to the buzz and excitement of great clubs and restaurants at nearby St Lawrence Gap.

Emerald Palms Apartment, Sea-view Apartment, Tropical Gecko Studio and Two Palms Apartment are perfect for wind/kite/boogie surfers.... who wants 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.

Emerald Palms & Sea-view Apartments: Emerald Palms Apartment is located at the first floor while Sea-view Apartment is at the ground floor. Overlooking wild and beautiful Silver Sands pasture where you can glimpse green monkeys and tiny Yellow Breast tropical birds. Both Emerald Palms Apartment and Sea-view Apartment can accommodate between 1 and 5 people.

Tropical Gecko Studio and Two Palms Apartment are located at the ground floor of Sweet Jewel Apartments in front of the ocean which is just 80 metres far. Surrounded by green lawn, Coconut Palms trees, flowers and Hamming Birds it's the perfect place just to relax and recharge yourself!

The Location: 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. The incredible spot’s number aloud all levels of wind-kite-surfers to enjoy this magic place.

The water temperature is unbelievable, 26°/30° C warm and constant all year round. During the period of November and July the Trade winds start to blow constantly and between December and April the conditions are absolutely perfect with a very high percentage of constant winds mostly in January and February. The best spot is absolutely Silver Sands beach!

About Stefano Porcu

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!

Stefano Porcu purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Stefano Porcu chose Silver Sands

If you love the wood this is the 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 from italian people with an experience of more than 20 years in the turism industry. The Cottage has mosquito-nets in all the apartments, and most of the furnitures are italian too; 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 closer to the sea. It's an absolute secure place, all fenced-in with security cameras and the owners live inside the property

What makes this apartment unique

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.

8 jours magnifiques

  • 5 of 5

Accueil très chaleureux, arrivés avec nos 3 filles un dimanche fin après-midi, Elisabeth et Stefano se sont rendus disponibles allant jusqu’à nous emmener faire quelques courses pour notre premier dîner. Encore merci Eli

Logement parfaitement propre, chambre spacieuse et ventilée. Une vue superbe sur l'océan pour le petit déjeuner.

Toujours prêt à donner le maximum pour rendre le séjour le plus agréable possible, attentifs aux passions de chacun d'entre nous (un grand merci de la part de Charlotte qui a pu assister avec joie à la baignade matinale des chevaux de course à Bridgetown).

Location possible de matériel de sport (surf, funboard...), du très bon matériel. Merci à Stefano pour les planches de surf.

Superbe sortie en catamaran sur les conseils d'Eli.

Que de supers souvenirs en famille, un pur bonheur !

Au plaisir de vous revoir

Wunderschönes Appartement in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 2 Wochen bei Stefano in seinem Sea-View Apartment. Das Appartement ist einfach klasse. Super sauber und sehr schön groß.

Stefano ist ein großartiger Gastgeber der immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stand wenn wir etwas hatten.

Ich kann dieses Appartement sowie Stefano einfach nur weiterempfehlen.

8 days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Barbados in as many years. There is only one place to stay. Blue Ocean Cottage. We love it there or here. Very clean, quiet and comfy.

Stefano and Elisabetta are always helpful. The location is close to Oistens, The Gap, Bridgetowne. a short walk to Surfers pub. We have a car, but you can take a cab pretty much anywhere, for a reasonble fare.Best of both worlds on the island.We will always stay there.

Thanks Stefano and Elisabetta

see you next year

10 star vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time in Barbados and we keep returning to Blue Ocean Cottages. Here are just some of the reasons why you should book your stay here:

1. the owner Stefano is absolutely an amazing host. He will take such good care of you and has all the inside knowledge of island. He has directed us to some of the best surf spots and definitely puts in a lot of heart into taking care of his guests.

2. the location is IDEAL! Quiet, safe ocean-side street with a dead end so there's barely any traffic. Its only 5 minutes to Oistins for shopping, groceries, fish fry, restaurants etc..., A beach-side restaurant/cafe with fabulous food at the end of the street and most of all a gorgeous beach only steps away that never has anyone on can sunbathe, walk, surf, swim, or share a nice glass of wine with your special someone watching the sunset :)

3. the accomodations: you can find nearly anything that will suit your budget or your style here without compromising quality. Each unit is unique and decorated beautifully. THE BEDS ARE SUPER COMFORTABLE! We have such good sleeps here that you will want to take the bed home with you. Each unit we have stayed in is VERY CLEAN. It shows that the place is really well looked after. The cottage is next to the ocean so a beautiful sea breeze comes through which leaves you refreshed and feeling great. There is A/C if you need it but we didn't and it was never stuffy. The gardens around are beautiful, there are tall palm and banana trees, gorgeous flowers and the opportunity to see a lot of nice birds, lizards, geckos, etc. If you have a group its perfect because everyone can be together but have their own apartments without constantly being together sharing kitchens and washrooms etc. Also the showers here are amazing. Spacious and well built!!! Very clean.

4. Overall feel: Staying at a resort has its perks..sure. but the feeling you will get from staying in this gorgeous little piece of paradise without all the numerous people will leave you feeling so rested. Its really the perfect vacation spot that has the feel of home. We always feel rested and relaxed here and most of all always welcomed and appreciated. The friendships we have formed will continue to be one of the many reasons we return to Blue Ocean every year. Thank you Stefano, Ale and Maya for yet another memorable vacation :) See you next year!!

Private paradise on a coral island in the sea

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our stay at the blue ocean cottage. My wife and I have the most amazing time ever. What a beautiful Island! Stefano was fantastic! Referred us to the most amazing excursion we have ever been on! The Island! Stefano was fantastic! Referred us to the most amazing excursion we have ever been on! The cut itself cottage itself was immaculately clean and everything we needed was right there. I would highly recommend that you plan at least 10 days on this beautiful tranquil Island and that you definitely stay at the blue Ocean cottage!! If you don't like the big hustling bustle of overcrowded over priced hotels and you like to be a little off the beaten path and get a real feel of the island, this is the place for you!!
