About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

South Ocean Villa is a new property located in the heart of the South Coast on the beach. It is 1,200 square feet of tile, marble, and coral. It shares the same beach as four of Barbados finest resorts including the Barbados Hilton. The unique location and design by world famous architect Ian Morrison, offers breathtaking views of the entire South Coast of the island with no obstruction, and it is possibly the finest view on the island. The property sits literally in the sea and affords some of the most intensely beautiful sunrises and sunsets to be found anywhere. Its location on the main road insures that you can walk to any of the many restaurants, shopping centers, banks, and grocery stores in the area. Public transportation is located right out the door. With over 50 years experience on the island, we can help you maximize and economize your visit to our special "paradise." They just completed a new government Boardwalk which links the Hilton Beach with Rockley Beach. It is about 2 miles long and is a great place to jog, walk, and explore along the sea. Truly a beautiful addition and it is located right outside your door.

Enjoy the sound of the surf off one of your two balconies. Swim in the private pool and bask in the sun on the private sundeck. Venture on the beach to swim in the sea or walk for miles.

About Mark Tillman

My family has traveled and wintered in beautiful Barbados for over 50 years. We are 4th generation hospitality professionals who understand what the word "hospitality" is all about. We searched the island to ensure that "our piece of paradise" is both comfortable and unique. We look forward to having you as our guests.

Mark Tillman purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mark Tillman chose Hastings

In our business, it is "Location, Location, Location." We believe we found it here.

What makes this villa unique

The addition of the new government boardwalk has increased the value of enjoyment with this property. You are now able to move quickly and safely to the beach, restaurants, and shops all while enjoying the beautiful sea. It is great to people watch and to burn off some of those "Rum Calories."

Guestbook comments from the owner

Overall the propery was as listed and the island was beautiful. We had a wonderful stay. Organizing the rental was quite easy, however our security deposit was never returned nor was our request for an explaination for this. We were rarely in the condo as there were many attractions to visit, so we are still awaiting an answer.

There is a new government boardwalk right outside the villa that enables you to run, walk, and explore. It is on the sea and links the Hilton Beach to Acura (Rockley) Beach. It is about 2 miles and is a truly beautiful addition. My family has been visiting Barbados for over 50 years and we know all the 'ins and outs' of this beautiful island. We believe that our villa has the finest location and view on the South Coast. We are close to fine/casual dining, shopping, grocery stores and entertainment. We are located on the main bus route and minutes from the airport, Bridgetown and all entertainment districts. We are private, quiet, secluded, and secure. We are minutes from the police station and our area is patrolled regularly. We have island agents in our employ that will do whatever it takes to ensure that you have all that you expect and more. We update our villa guide yearly to provide you with all that is worthwhile to see and do close by and throughout the island. ENJOY!

Exceptional Experience and Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous place, Mark and Susyn were amazing hosts. They truly know how to make the trip easy with their extensive itinerary and recommendations. The villa was spotless, very comfortable, and so close to everything. Hastings is the perfect area to be because you are right in the middle of Bridgetown and St. Lawrence Gap. Also being close to the airport and Oistins was amazing. We loved the walk to Dover and Carlisle Beaches and all the fun bars/restaurants on the Boardwalk. The amazing view from the Villa also made us able to spot the sea turtles right from our balcony so we were able to run down and swim with them. Mark and Susyn were also very helpful while we were there and responded to our emails quickly to help us with certain questions. I can't wait to go back, thanks again for the best honeymoon!

Delightful stay in a beautiful villa and location

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully decorated and clean villa accurately described and shown on rental sites. Kitchen had everything required and beds were very comfortable. Very clean and well maintained building. Very easy and efficient communications with both owner and local property manager.

Location was the best! Used the boardwalk every day for taking a stroll, relaxing. Villa is very central to super restaurants (Tapas, Buzo among others), lovely beaches (Carlisle Bay), the race track, and Bridgetown.

Many of the east and south coast beaches had a problem with seaweed while we were there, but there were many other options available close by and along the west coast.

Thanks to Susyn and Mark for allowing us to enjoy this lovely villa in amazing Barbados!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

The view was absolutley beautiful, and everything was neat and amazing. The boardwalk was great to walk at night, if you want to find a nice cheap or expensive bar/restaurant on the way you can. (We recommend Oasis Bar) Easy to contact the owners, and overall a wonderful experience. Unforgetable!

Beautiful view, very comfortable unit

  • 5 of 5

Was extremely happy with our accommodations during our 3 week stay at South Ocean Villa, unit 601. The view was amazing, the turtles swam by in the morning. We would go take a swim in the ocean steps away and come back for a cold drink on the patio and pool area. Staff was excellent and the furnishings and appliances were all very satisfactory. We would rent this unit again in a minute. Thank you for the hospitality.
