About Stefano Porcu
NOT many words to say... our guest reviews reflect how we are and what we do. We wait for you in our little portion of Paradise!
Why Stefano Porcu chose Silver Sands
If you love the wood, something unique, special, charming, in a particular quite area... this is the right property to be! Because this is the only Cottage of the entire area, made by a French architect with a Bajan engineer with a unique style; it's managed by italian people with an experience of more than 20 years in the tourism industry. The Blue Ocean Cottage has mosquito-nets in all the apartments and most of the furnitures are italian; some apartments and studios have also the air conditioning with independent splits. There is a big parking space in front of the property; The Cottage is very very clean (it's a must for us) fully equipped and the ocean sound is sweet and not so strong as it is in properties which are to close to the sea. It's an absolute secure place, all fenced-in with security cameras and the owners live inside the property
What makes this Apartment unique
Breeze place, very close to the ocean (70 meters), with a close bar and restaurant, bus stop and little grocery. Unique white thin sandy beaches around (Silver Sands, Rescue Beach, Silver Rock), no traffic at all, not too many constructions around. It's still a wild spot and place where you can even admire monkeys, parrots, hamming birds, whales and turtles.

To everyone who will decide to book: you will love it. So we did and do!
Thank you Stefano & SEE YOU SOON :)
Green Garden Apt Barbados is absolutely wonderful
This is the second time we have stayed at the Blue Cottage Apartments in beautiful Barbados. These properties are well-maintained, well-appointed and are in a beautiful area in Silver Sands / South Coast. The apartment was very clean, and linens provided. The kitchen had everything needed to cook a fabulous meal. The outdoor patio area was wonderful place to relax and cool off after a day at the beach, private secluded. This location is close to world-class surfing, kiteboarding, windsurfing and snorkeling. Beautiful ocean views. A shore seaside walk to the Surfer's Bay Grille. Oistens is also nearby for dining, shopping. Stefano and his wife Elizabetta are the most gracious hosts. They have always gone out of their way to make us feel welcome on the island. We have always enjoyed our time here and will be back again and again. This is a great rental property, all of the apartments are clean, safe, affordable, ideal for family / children. 5 Stars!
We are really very happy to receive such a great review, it means that all our efforts to give the best service and to make our guests holiday unforgettable are working properly! Thank you again for beeing again for the second year in a row our Blue Ocean Cottage guests, it was a pleasure to have you here and that you enjoyed the apartment, the location and the island in general.
We look forward to see you again next year!!
All the best...
Stefano & Elisabetta
I travel a lot both for work and holidays and, to be honest, I don't normally write reviews about hotels and apartments where I stayed (I gues I am a little bit lazy...), however this time I am more than happy to make an exception as this place was simply perfect. And when I say perfect, I really mean it! Why? Here we are:
1) Location: no matter if you are a surfer, windsurfer, kitesurfer, you simply want to relax on the beach, enjoy the bajan culture etc. Silver Sand is probably the best location to visit from south to north, from east to west. If you stay on the west coast you might risk to miss the amazing east coast. If you stay on the east coast you might risk to miss the carribean side. Staying in the south of the Island you are exactly in the middle of the coasts. Perfect also for watersports and very close to the super famous oystin fish market (5 mins drive).
2) The flat was very clean, I have also really enjoyed the small patio outside and the kitchen is a proper kitchen where you can cook in the proper way, said by an Italian
3)Did the owner provide good customer service? The answer is no, they did provide an excellent customer service. Good is not enough to describe how Stefano and Elisabetta were helpful. They made my staying easy and relaxing. What I was looking for...I wanted to surf, they rented me a surf board, I wanted a car, they found a rental car for me, I needed the driving license permit, they organize it for me, I needed infos, they provided me with all infos I needed. But, most important thing, they always did that with a smile (which is quite important!)
4)I would strongly reccomend this place to everyone, a car is a must if you wanna see the several beaches on the island, but hey...would you go to barbados and stay only in the beach of your resort?
5)I was lucky as I had some amazing surf sessions first days then surf went a little bit down, but hey you can´t have everything, right? In front of the apartment is the beach for windsurf and kitesurf which may make you think it is too windy to enjoy the beach, but I was surprised how the wind was not annoying at all! Regarding restaurants, to be honest, my suggestion is to enjoy oistin fish market as much as you can. Restaurants are quite expensive in barbados and to be honest in most of the cases most of the money you pay are more for the location than for the food itself. Anyway, go there and find out yourself!!!!
Buongiorno Matteo ed Alice!
Per noi è sempre davvero un grande piacere ricevere delle belle recensioni dai nostri ospiti, ma la vostra le batte davvero tutte. E' anche vero che quando per noi si ha a che fare con delle persone simpatiche, educate e gentili come voi, il nostro lavoro è molto più semplice, il tempo vola davvero e questo commento ci lusinga e conferma che siamo sulla strada giusta per continuare a migliorare ed offrire un servizio ed un appartamento sempre migliore! Speriamo davvero di rivedervi presto e magari proprio qui al nostro Blue Ocean Cottage nella nostra piccola porzione di paradiso.
A presto! Stefano, Elisabetta e Maya!!
A lovely apartment in a great location
A great, well set-up, clean apartment near some lovely and almost private beaches. On the relaxed south coast the apartment is ideally located for some great surf, kite surf and wind surf spots (no car needed to get to them) and about a 30 minute walk from Oistins.
The owners are more than happy to help - from initial contact to leaving at the end they will sort out anything you need (transport, recommendations, advice etc) but let you enjoy the privacy of the apartment and terrace.
Overall, a lovely place to relax and enjoy Barbados.
We are really very happy to receive such a great review, it means that all our efforts to give the best service and to make our guests holiday unforgettable are working properly! Thank you again for beeing our new Blue Ocean Cottage guests, it was a pleasure to know and having you here and that you enjoyed the apartment, the location and the island in general. We hope to see you again soon, maybe in front of a Banks Beer!! All the best Stefano & Elisabetta
Wonderful Stay at Green Garden Apartment
We stayed at the Green Garden Apartment for 10 days. We had a wonderful time and just loved its location. A few minutes walk to the bus stop (passes every 5 minutes). Woke up to birds singing every morning, no traffic noise. Stefano and his wife were always happy to give us a hand or reserve excursions and car for us. They suggested the El Tiger catamaran trip, it was out of this world. The best excursion I have ever done. I can't wait to go back, thanks Stefano for everything.
Brenda and Joelle
