It was great! Stefano arranged for Mr. Rodney to meet us at the airport. He was so friendly and even took us to a minimart to get some basic groceries before we even got to the apartment! Now that is service! The apartment was clean and well-maintained. There was an outside shower to clean the sand off after time at the beach. There were clothes lines and laundry facilities available, too. Stefano had information pamphlets available as well as his verbal knowledge - which was most helpful. We took the #11 minibus into Bridgetown several times - was way easier then driving and then having to park at car! Even though it was hot, there is good ventilation in the place and we were comfortable, day and night. We did a lot of walking up and down the coastline. Some of it is beaches and other parts are rocky areas with pathways between the beaches. We went to Surfer's Bay Bar, which was very close to the apartment, every day for Happy Hour - if not dinner, too. We could watch the sunset and enjoy a nice drink. We would recommend this apartment - for sure!
What can I say?!
We had a blast, Stefano was hugely accommodating and the room was fantastic! After traveling the island we came to the conclusion that we were situated in the best place! We're not fans of the resort life and we like to have the option to cook and the kitchen was spot on!
If you're into Kite boarding (you would of heard of this place), sun lounging, and/or Surfing this is the place to be (there's a nice little beach to catch a few casual waves, watch out for the rocks though beach right! Or if you don't mind a 15 to 20 minute trek to South Point there's two decent spots, one for the short and one for the long).
Great spots to eat surrounds you at Surfers Bay and 'Oistens' is only a dollar away!
If I had only one bit of feedback, paying the holding deposit could have been easier, but I'm not that familiar with SWIFT transactions, but now I am.
I thoroughly recommend, Stefano and co keep a great spot and I would definitely visit again!
My stay was excellent! The owner Stefano was very welcoming and accommodating. I had a comfortable stay in this attractively decorated cottage. Peaceful! No complaints at all. Walks by the ocean are breathtaking. I highly recommend this rental.
We had a really nice time in the white coconut studio! Stefano was really kind and helpful! He was still there to organize different things for us (car rental, tour with a catamaran...). In the studio you can find everything you need to have a great time. It was clean and well-resourced. Near the studio you can find a beach bar and you need just 10 minutes to the bus station. From there you can reach Oistins in a view minutes- you can find there everything you need (supermarkets, fish fry...).
Altogether we can recommend the studio!!!
Firstly, I'd like to say a very big thank you to Stefano and Elisabetta for being such wonderful hosts / landlords! White Coconut Studio is spacious, modern and the use of Wi-Fi was much appreciated. The kitchen area is great (I just love cooking on gas!) with an ample fridge/freezer. I would recommend hiring a car so that not only can you get to explore the rest of beautiful Barbados, you can get to the local supermarket in Oistins and stock up on groceries. There is a large car park opposite the main gate to the apartments so no parking problems whatsoever. The bathroom is very spacious with a large powerful shower, bliss ! The studio itself doesn't overlook the sea, although you only have to step out of the door and walk along the balcony a few feet and there you have a lovely view of the ocean. Literally around the Corner is Surfer's Bay bar and grill, where you will be made to feel very welcome. The food is wonderful, especially the macaroni pie! Catch of the Day is usually out of this world too, the fish is so fresh of course, with Oistins (fishing village) so close by. I would not hesitate in recommending White Coconut Studio, I miss being there so much. Hope to see you again soon Stefano and Elisabetta xx
We arrived to a clean, cool, beautiful apartment that felt very much like home while we stayed there. It is located moments from stunning secluded white sandy beaches that are picture postcard perfect. The apartment has excellent facilities including a particularly well equipped fully functioning kitchen, which was imported from Italy. The shower is big enough for 2 people, with a powerful source of hot water - in fact the photos on the website don't do it justice.
Stefano and Elisabetta went above and beyond with their help and recommendations from a memorable trip snorkelling on El Tigre with turtles and through shipwrecks, to booking a gastronomic romantic meal on our last night at a restaurant called Champers.
There are cameras around the property, making you feel safe and secure, in an area that although lovely, is quite remote. There is a fantastic relaxed bar on the same street, where you will be greeted by an English owner, great food and live music - thankfully Stefano pointed us in the direction on our first night and in our 3 week stay we became regular visitors.
For the surfer in you (kite, board or wind) there is a beach up the road run by Brian Talma who runs a school for all types of surfing, however, if you want somewhere less busy that is even closer to Blue Ocean Cottage, the beach in front of the closed down Silver Sands Hotel, is quiet and perfect for a more experienced surfer or in my case sunbather. Beware though, there are no sun loungers, parasols or drinks waiters, but there are also no throngs of tourists, so it feels like your own personal beach, which is a pleasure.
From a transport perspective Stefano and Elisabetta recommended a charming cab driver called Rodney, but if you want to take the number 11 minibus it's 5 minutes walk away and goes all the way to Bridgetown - the 11 is definitely an experience not to be missed!
Blue Ocean Cottage is the place to stay if you want a warm friendly home from home, with peace and quiet. If you're looking for party central stay in St Lawrence Gap; this is the place to come to, for anyone that wants to unwind, spend time on untouched beaches and enjoy peace, quiet and tranquility.
We've been back a month, it feels like a lifetime ago and we both desperately miss it. Enjoy your time there, those moments are precious and will stay with you forever.
Thank you Stefano and Elisabetta for an amazing holiday you are lovely people and fantastic hosts.
