'Simply stunning' are words that do not do this luxury apartment justice . Overlooking the beach and Caribbean Sea on a half-mile stretch of sandy beach. Just 30 seconds from the fine powder white sandy beach, Ocean Blue is a modern two bedroom two bathroom apartment that can sleep up to five people. Nestled in a lush oasis of coconut palms, Ocean Blue is on the Glitter Bay Estate which is built in Mediterranean style with beautiful lush gardens and a tropical freshwater pool. The property benefits from a large terrace that overlooks the beach and Caribbean sea and is located in the first building which is closest to the sea and is virtually on the sand. This elegant comfortable apartment is well furnished and is equipped to an unusually high standard for a rental property. It comes with its own dedicated housekeeper. Quite simply it is everything you could desire in a beachside 5* hideaway and is perfect for a honeymoon, romantic getaway or family holiday that you will never forget. There are comfortable sun loungers with mattresses and parasols by the pool and on the beach. Glitter Bay offers all the amenities one would expect in a top class resort. There is a large pool, kid's pool, tennis, gym, table tennis, day time bar and restaurant. The concierge will help with restaurant or tour bookings, they also run the daily beach towel service. With a friendly staff, some of very long standing, the resort exudes an old world charm and is known by many families as the most perfect destination for children.
My wife, son and I had the opportunity to stay for a week at Ocean Blue at the beginning of January. As outlined in the many reviews, the unit is immaculate, very upscale and extremely comfortable. The layout, furniture and vie of the ocean from the balcony is unparalleled in the whole Glitter Bay complex. In addition, the attention to detail is fantastic with every possible requirement already thought of and available within the unit. For us, a highlight was relaxing on the comfortable balcony furniture while watching the sunset and just enjoying the quite family time.
Glitter Bay is a more intimate complex with an outstanding beach, assigned beach chairs, pool, gymnasium and on site restaurant/bar. This smaller scale was perfect for us, as it offered all the requisite amenities but without the crowds, and calm, quite evenings with that total sense of relaxation. We decided not to rent a car but this was not an issue as the vibrant community of Holetown (with restaurants and shopping) is only minutes away by bus or taxi.
Although, I could rave on about Ocean Blue, the trip was really a success due to the superb care and assistance provided by the owner, Penny and caretaker Chantel. They were absolutely a delight to interact with and provided excellent care during our visit to Barbados. We have been renting upscale locations for our holidays over the last 15+ years and I have to say that Ocean Blue is probably one of (if not) the best vacation rental that we have found. Ultimately, If you are contemplating a visit to Barbados then I highly recommend that you stay at Ocean Blue and experience a wonderful holiday.
We've just spent 9 wonderful nights in ocean blue. Beautiful apartment, so much better than the numerous Barbados hotels we've stayed in. All located on the best beach on the island. Perfect location to venture out and experience the world class cuisine. Loanstar or Ju Ju for lunch. Cliff beach club. Juma, Tides. Cin Cin. Mullins .....for dinner.
A lovely apartment everything was just perfect, elegantly furnished, kitchen extremely well equipped, very comfy beds and good bathrooms.
The location is overlooking a lovely beach and the sea swimming was great, the water was nice and warm. Attention to detail at Glitter Bay is very high, sun loungers allocated on beach on arrival and yours for the whole of your stay.
Housekeeping was to a very high standard and Chauntel was very helpful with everything, plus all our personal laundry was done when needed. Came home with all clean clothes!! Brilliant.
We had a very memorable holiday at Ocean Blue, thank you Penny.
As soon as we walked into Ocean Blue, it was easy to see that it was just as advertised. Everything in the apartment looked just as it was pictured online, down to every detail. The terrace was our favorite part of the apartment. It's spacious and comfortable no matter what time of day.
Chauntel, the housekeeper, was exceptional. She is trustworthy, reliable and helpful. Penny arranged for Perry to pick us up at the airport. Our flight wasn't scheduled to get into Barbados until late at night, but Perry was there waiting for us and got us quickly to the apartment.
Penny was very helpful in answering our questions before and during the booking process. She made everything easy.
Glitter Bay's beach is very nice and perfect for snorkeling. The water is clear blue and the beach is clean and comfortable.
I highly recommend Ocean Blue and hope to be back sooner rather than later. Thank you, Penny!
Jan and I recently returned from our fourth visit to Ocean Blue and we were delighted, but not surprised, to discover that Penny had made a number of upgrades and what was already a fantastic apartment was even better than on our last visit.
Glitter Bay has a tremendous location bang on the beach on West Coast Barbados and Penny’s apartment is undoubtedly one of the best. Each apartment is individually owned and furnished and Ocean Blue has one of the best sea views, most comfortable balcony for chilling and an extremely comfortable super king sized main bed. The kitchen is well equipped even though we mainly ate out.
Chauntel the housekeeper looked after us incredibly well and did a great job in kept the apartment spotlessly clean.
It is easy to walk the beach to Ju Ju’s for simple food and sunset drinks or Lone Star for the most amazing place on the beach to eat lunch or dinner. Holetown is nearby and you can walk down the beach at low tide in 30 minutes for happy hour and sunset at Surfside or Zaccios.
Great location, tremendous apartment and we will be back again without question.
Well done Penny!

A beautiful tranquil setting on the beach. The apartment was very well equipped, spotless and furnished to a high standard and was everything the photographs and written descriptions claimed.
We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and will return.
We stayed for a week in November, and clearly booked the right apartment!
We were met at the airport by the taxi that had been sent for us despite quite a delay at immigration (what a mess...), At the apartment Chauntel was waiting for us complete with the groceries we had ordered.
The apartment was immaculate and being on the second floor provided a great view from the balcony.
The Glitter Bay estate itself is quite small, but has a great pool and garden, although with the allocated sunbeds we preferred to sit on the beach. What a great idea this is - no more going down with towels at 6am!!
Chauntel came in every day (except Sunday) and even washed and ironed our dirty washing.
And the icing on the cake was the weather; just one or two very short light showers. Bur I suspect we can't attribute that bit to Penny!
A great holiday. Thanks Penny.
Barbados, perched in the sea to the east of the Windward Islands is wonderful holiday destination with natural attractions all of its own: acres of rolling green sugar cane fields, a breathtaking coastline of soft sandy beaches lapped by calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean on the west and expanses of wild surf crashing onto the wide sandy beaches of the Atlantic east coast; exotic trees and shrubs such as banyan, mahogany, flamboyant and poinsettia. As you drive across the island you glimpse fine, colonial-style plantation houses and come across villages of houses brightly painted in classic Caribbean colours, surrounded by garden of frangipani and hibiscus. Barbados is a paradise island,. You can enjoy every type of water sport, water skiing, sailing, diving and paragliding. The snorkeling all along the beach is excellent and you may even see a turtle! Windsurfing is available on the south coast side of the island. Game fishing and boats for hire can all be arranged.
Other Activities: Snorkelling
