2 Bedroom, Fully Furnished House On The Beach.
This house is owned by my Grandmother Christine, but managed by me, her granddaughter. Granny was born and bred in Barbados and has a special love for collecting unique and special property throughout the isalnd. This property is one of her favorites and we are so happy to share it with you.
Why Chloe chose Derricks
The house has been owned and operated by our family for over 50 years. My grandmother has overseen countless renovations and updates and it is a property very close to our heart. It is a beautiful family home on an exquisite, private beach with the most beautiful blue water and white sand. Stay with us and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

A little slice of Paradise
This little gem of a house is perfect in so many ways - convenient location for so many reasons; steps away from the beach; the view through the mature mahogany trees (which help to keep it cool on an afternoon) which you never tire from; comfortable furnishings; well equipped kitchen. We wouldn't stay anywhere else on the west coast! Thanks to the super host Chloe who always makes sure we are happy!
It's like being on a desert island!
We have just returned from a 10 night stay and we loved it!
The property has 2 big bedrooms with very comfortable beds and pillows and the living area is very spacious too. In addition there is the large veranda with 2 seating areas and barbecue which we used several times. The sea literally laps at the gate of the garden and as you can't see the property to the left when you are on the veranda and there is nothing immediately to the right it really felt like we were on our own little desert island!
You do get a few people passing the gate at low tide and, talking of tides, I strongly recommend downloading the tide tables for the area so you know when you can get along the beach as it is a much more pleasant walk than the road!
We loved the 2 nearby restaurants Il Tempio (on the beach) and Caribe which were about 10 minutes walk away. By Barbados standards they are not expensive and the food was excellent!
The house itself isn't ultra modern but it is extremely good value for the amount being charged and it has a natural charm about it. The kitchen has a good range of gadgets and cookware and we bought food at the local, very well stocked, supermarket Jordan's which is opposite Il Tempio restaurant.
The garden itself is well shaded due to the number of trees but the beach to either side of the property is stunning. If I went again I would take a lilo to use on the beach as a lounger!
If you get woken up at sunrise by a loud noise on the roof don't panic, it's a visitation from the green monkeys who sometimes appear! One even walked bold as brass across the veranda one afternoon too!
Chloe was great before and during our stay providing us with all the information we needed and she and her family were extremely helpful and promptly fixed a problem we had with the air conditioning while we were there. Thank you to all of you.
A delightful cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Hollow.
The cottage is roomy, well appointed and fully lived up to the description provided.
Very comfortable furniture. All facilities worked fine. The washer and dryer were a nice feature.
Chloe, the property manager [and her family] were very cooperative and obliging.
Bring your snorkel and mask as the coral comes close to the beach here and offers plenty of opportunity to view all kinds of tropical fish.
At low tide and with a couple of short detours you can walk the beach for several miles towards Bridgetown.
The market at Fitts Village is quite convenient especially for those, like us, with no car.
We loved the place and hope to stay there again on a future visit.
Clean, comfortable, safe beachside home.
Lovely beachside well equipped villa. Superb informal welcome. We really enjoyed our stay and felt at home immediately. Although we never actually met Chloe we did meet her charming and kind grandparents (owners of the property). This property cannot be faulted in our opinion a real find.
A Good Stay in Feb. 2019
We enjoyed our stay @ Ocean Hollow. 2 bedrooms with ensures were great for two couples. Beach patio was a pleasant way to enjoy the evenings after a day swimming or hiking the island. The house is far enough off of and on the water side of the busy roadway. Noise was not an issue. This property is not the lap of luxury but its good, honest accommodation for the price.
This is a lovely and relaxing vacation spot. The house has two spacious bedrooms with en suite baths, a generous living/dining space overlooking a large patio for outdoor eating and relaxing which itself overlooks a sandy fenced yard and the ocean. There is also a well stocked kitchen that has all the amenities one needs for a complete vacation. Beaches for swimming are readily available in either direction and the reef directly in front means unobstructed views at all times. Chloe, our hostess, was very responsive to any of our questions. In addition, it was an easy walk or drive to the grocery store or lovely Italian restaurant.
