Overview

About the property

2 bedroom air conditioned apartment

This new 2 bedroom apartment is finished to a very high standard with all rooms having air conditioning and ceiling fans.

As standard apartment is also fitted with dishwasher, glass top cookers, granite counter tops, microwave, fridge freezer with ice maker and luxury bathrooms with multi jet showers and glass sinks.

Apartment comes fully equipped with iron, ironing board, washing machine, flat screen TV and comfortable furnishings.

Bedrooms have built in closets and are laid out as one King and one Twin room.

Patio area with sea view is the perfect place to watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean or relax and watch the

reflection of the moon in the cool sea breeze.

A safe for your valuables is provided for your convenience.

About 20 minutes drive away is St Lawrence Gap with all its Nightlife: The St Lawrence Gap, in Christchurch Parish, is the night life centre of Barbados, located on the more commercial southern coast of the island. The resorts on the south coast are spread out, some even fairly isolated, but the Gap itself is lined with dozens of shops, restaurants, bars, and clubs, and, correspondingly, several resorts are clustered there as well. This part of Barbados is more casual and inviting than the Platinum Coast, and the resorts are hardly behind high walls.

A couple of minutes drive away or 20 minutes walk you will find our local - Marco Polo Bar and Grill. Launched in May 2014, and working hard with local farmers and fishermen in using only "fresh meat and fish", British expats Marc and Sally Egan created Marco Polo Bar & Grill - a fresh take on the traditional Bajan rum shop blending the best of both cultures to offer great food and drink at affordable rum shop prices. The bar plays relaxing music ranging from the 70's, 80's and today's hits . Every Friday there's a Fish, Chips & Mushy Pea night with Karaoke from vibrant Venezuelan, Francisco, which pulls in the crowds. As for sport, every effort is made to screen all the top sporting action in the "Mount Gay" Lounge.

Beaches: Crane Beach (about 5 min drive), originally a harbour, is considered by many to be one of the island's most beautiful beaches. In fact, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous rated it as 'one of the ten best beaches in the world'! A tour of the resort and complimentary day pass can be arranged for you if you are interested in seeing whats on offer at this spectacular resort.

Located less than 5 min away on the south east coast of Barbados, Foul Bay is absolutely beautiful (despite its unfortunate name!).

The expansive beach is partly shaded by casuarina and palm trees, making it a popular spot on weekends and holidays for picnics and family outings. However, the beach is so long and wide that even then it is never crowded!

Beaches on the south coast have fine white sand but are windier than those on the west coast. Reef-protected areas are safe for swimming. Some beaches have good surf and are prime spots for windsurfing.

Johnny Cool's Jazz and Blues Beach Bar located right on Dover Beach has to be one of my favourite spots on the Island for the best chill out experience ever! Indulge in some of Johnny's (locally known as Cool) superb cocktails and frozen drinks and feel all your stress just melt away in this idyllic setting.

Sailing Barbados: Nature's bounty has blessed Barbados with excellent weather, calm seas and steady breezes, making sailing off Barbados 'just beyond your imagination!'

There are several Barbados yachts and catamarans available for charters. You can join a scheduled cruise or customise your own personal sailing tour.

You can charter large catamarans and yachts for guided sailing tours down the scenic West Coast of Barbados, gliding gently through the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea as the steady winds fill the sails. Relax on board a catamaran and watch the beautiful coastline of Barbados slip by. Then drop anchor in a quiet bay for a swim in the crystal clear waters, followed by a sumptuous Barbados lunch! Whether you're looking for a quiet sail down the coast of Barbados, an exciting water sports adventure, or a romantic sunset cruise, you'll find sailing in Barbados to be simply delightful!

About Chris Cox

Born in the UK from a Bajan father I have always had a love affair with Barbados. As a youngster with a big dream I purchased some land close to a cliff edge overlooking the Caribbean sea in 2000 and spent many years fantasising what I was going to do with it. I was fortunate enough back in 2007 to get the opportunity to build my dream house, in my dream location on a dream Island.

As I count down the years till 2022 when I will make a life long dream complete and relocate to this wonderful place I invite you all to come share my dream in the meantime.

Chris Cox purchased this apartment in 2000

Great apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 weeks at Chris's wonderful apartment. Chris was fast to respond to all of our questions and his cousin Ricardo met us on site for our arrival to show us the unit. Foul Bay Beach is an amazing white sand beach with nobody on it and is less than a 10 minute walk or 2 by car. The unit is very clean and modern and has all the amenities that you will need. We ate every meal on the balcony while looking at the ocean. We had the best sleeps in the comfortable beds and the area is very quiet. It's off the main track so you will definitely need a car. We will rebook this apartment again on our next visit to this wonderful island.

Very nice property in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay at this house in Barbados. Everything we needed was provided. We arrived after dark and Ricardo met us and insisted on taking me to the grocery store. He arranged for us to get onto a sold out catamaran tour and I was able to swim with the turtles. The house is a little isolated so a car would have been very helpful, but Ricardo also introduced us to Michael who made himself and his taxi available to us whenever we needed him. The house is in a beautiful setting and it was fun just to wander around the neighborhood.

Beautiful views of the sea, super position and perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday staying at the apartment in Ocean City. It is in a beautiful position with lots of things to do nearby. There is a surf school nearby Called Zeds surf school which is great for kids and adults. There is also a restaurant at surfers point which we visited often.

Foule bay beach is one of the most beautiful beaches we've EVER been too!!! A walk 15min walk from the apartment. A real Robinson Crusoe beach with palm trees, coconuts, big waves, barely anyone on it except a few monkeys, heaven

The view from the apartment is amazing. You can hear the sea at night and benefit from the cool breeze that comes in over the sea. The apartment is beautifully furnished very cosy and great when you come in from a day at the beach. All mod cons,Wi-Fi, television with the bbc and other channels even an icemaker in the fridge (good for rum and Coconut water cocktails)

Great Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was amazing. This place is a perfect combo of being away from all the crazyness of the tourist area but close enough that you can go down for a great time in no time. This place is located where people live not so much a ton of tourists, the locals in the area are very helpful if you get lost walking around or have any questions while out as well. There are gorgeous beaches a short drive or taxi away. Izzy is great and helps with anything you may need. Chris is easy to deal with and just a great overall experience. I will definitely be back and having seen the other options for accomidations on the island i would be staying here. Thanks for everything!

Super southeastern Barbados abode

  • 5 of 5

Right across a small field from 80 foot cliff is a great place to start & end your day. The incredible view & steady warm breezes coming off thousands of miles of open ocean was only surpassed by the myriad stars that twinkle at night. The location is great as well. 10 minutes from the airport, 15 from the listings Friday night fish fry & 30 from downtown Bridgetown. 2 minutes from the store & 5 from the cozy Crane beach yet the quiet end of the street was the best of both worlds. The villa apartment was clean & comfortable with a great covered porch, walled in yard. The owners are easy to work with and as nice and laid back as the rest of the folks on this wonderful island.

Over and Above!

  • 5 of 5

Having spent 2 weeks at this apt in January, we can say unequivocally, this was the best experience we have had on any Caribbean island, much of it due to Chris and Izzy who did everything possible to make our stay at their lovely villa comfortable and seamless, from buying us a new coffee pot so we could have fresh coffee in the morning (as we watched the sun rise over the ocean from our patio), to paving our way to special treatment by local friends. The apt was attractive, well appointed, and very up-to-date with modern conveniences. The location, quiet, away from the hustle and congestion of Bridgetown and the western side, was ideal, with comfortable trade winds and no need for air-conditioning.

Of course, we loved the beaches, especially stunning Bottoms Bay, quiet Foul Bay, and Miami for it's action and local scene. . .loved the rum shops, especially Chicken Rita's and John Moore, and going to Oistin's to pick out fresh fish to grill each night.. Also, don't miss the Coconut Bread made fresh daily from the bakery in the local supermarket just a few blocks away.

All in all, it, was a wonderful vacation, and there is no where else we would go and stay when we return but to this apt on Barbados. Thank you Chris and Izzy!

Ocean City Condo is located on the idyllic island of Barbados in the parish of St Philip. Situated close to the cliff, they offer a spectacular 180-degree view of the dazzling aqua sea and cool sea breeze all year round.

Barbados is a small island, just 14 by 21 miles, so everything is within easy reach. The apartment is located close to the cliff edge in Ocean City, a small community in the parish of St Philip on the south-east of the island. There are many local beaches, the nearest being Foul Bay, about 5 min drive away or about 15 min walk along the cliff edge. It is a beautiful long sandy beach ideal for walks and picnics. Crane Beach (Sunday Telegraph best beach) is also less than 10 min away. There is a well equipped supermarket and mini-mart just 5 min away. The airport is less than 10 min drive away. The Barbados Golf Club is 10 min away, there are many restaurants within a 20 min drive and St Lawrence Gap with its wealth of night life is about 20 min away.

Golf: Barbados Golf Club, located at Durants in the southern parish of Christ Church (about 20 min drive), has become the soul of golfing in Barbados for local players as well as hotel guests and visitors cruising through the Caribbean. The course was approved and sanctioned by the PGA European Tour to host a PGA Seniors Tournament in 2003 and it has also hosted the Barbados Open on several occasions.

The golf course was reopened in 2000 after a period of reconstruction to the environmentally sensitive design specifications of Ron Kirby, one of the most respected and experienced golf course architects in the world. He redesigned the course to produce a fair, challenging and a pleasurable game for golfers of all levels of skill and competence.

The challenges, rewards and scenic views of the course encourage players of all abilities to play with determination to hone their skills while enjoying the company of friends amidst tropical surroundings.
