It's name Ocean Breeze is quite fitting. Not so much that you notice it, but you are just comfortable. The villa is right on the ocean and the sound of the waves lull you to sleep at night. I filled my days watching and walking along the sea with daily trips to Sharks Hole for a sea bath as the locals call it. Having our own pool was just fabulous! I hope to get back there soon!
We loved staying at Erin and Howard's beautiful and well kept home. The outdoor living room and deck by the pool were great for hanging out with friends. The pool is absolutely necessary for hot days in Barbados.
Good location near bottom bay and crane beach. Would definitely come back!
The house and the amenities are amazing! The view is unmatched...easy to get to Shark hole beach, Bottom Bay and Crane Beach. Everything you could possibly need or want is close at hand. Sunrise spectacular, the house is aptly named ocean breeze! I will hopefully be going back as often as possible! I give it my highest rating!
I stayed at 'Ocean Breeze' back in February and loved it! The house is right on the ocean... we had an amazing time sitting out on the back porch - (which is basically an outdoor living room)... watching and listening to the waves and relaxing. I could have stayed a month hanging out with good friends, good food and a good book! Oh... and on the back porch there is also a pool... drinks by the pool watching the ocean waves - can't get much better than that!
The house is located fairly close to the airport, so the drive wasn't long. It's in a very quiet neighborhood with other ocean front and neighboring houses... so if you are looking for a nice place to get away, it's nice and quiet here. You will need a car so that you can get around the island. I enjoyed riding around in the car and seeing the various areas - very cool!
The house has towels and sheets... a big kitchen with plates/pans/silverware... everything you possibly need in the kitchen. There is a dining room that seats at least 6, although most of the time we ate out on the back porch. The bedrooms are very nicely sized. Each room basically has it's own bathroom. The showers are great... lots of shower pressure and everything is clean. There is a washer/dryer and a garage. Ocean Breeze has a housekeeper, Denise, who comes everyday - and Denise is a real sweetheart of a lady - extremely friendly. There is living room with cable TV and Wifi. There is only AC in one room and it's a smaller room, but with the ocean breeze blowing through - I was comfortable. There is also a house manger who helps with recommendations on the island, and if there is the slightest issue with the house, she takes care of it very quickly.
There are several beaches within the area... one within walking distance is Shark Hole... it's a 5-minute walk and simply gorgeous. We drove to several other beaches... all just breathtaking - especially Crane Beach. We even went to one beach and we had the whole beach to ourselves with no one else there... and it was a huge beach! My favorite was to walk out the back door and along the ocean cliffs where the coral is really neat... and the water is mesmerizing and stunning.
We bought food/groceries at the local grocery store... and I was able to use my US credit card with no problem. I did have to call the bank to let them know I would be traveling. We also went to an adorable place called Cutters - food was delish - they are known for their Flying Fish Cutter... and I loved the Salsa and Chips (homemade chips) and the Vege Roti was amazing. We went a couple of times.
All in all... we had a fabulous time! It was great to have such a nice big house on a large property... the sunrises/sunsets were fabulous and it was such a chill and relaxing vacation! I plan to return and can't wait to visit Ocean Breeze again!
We couldn't believe the views and seclusion of this amazing home, the pictures didn't do it justice. It's right on the ocean cliff with panoramic views over 180 degrees. The home is immaculate and can comfortably sleep 8-10 people. The airport is close, as are all the amenities you might require. We can't wait to return!
Celebrated a special occasion in this gorgeous place with friends and family. The house provides views of sunsets; water colors you have never seen before; and, a vacation like no other! While we prepared our meals, the kitchen allows you to keep an eye on the waves crashing into your backyard. There is a sizeable open air area in the back of the house that is perfect for morning coffee, eating your meals or just relaxing. The pool is refreshing and provides another area to read a book, sunbath or stay in the shade. There are beaches close by that you can walk to and have all to yourself! The bedrooms are very comfortable and provide views from all different angles of the ocean. With the Crane resort and Cutters restaurant close by, you can listen to live music, enjoy the local traditions or cliff dive, but it's hard to leave this gorgeous house!
I spent 5 days at Ocean Breeze in Barbados and couldn't have been happier. When you walk in the front door and through the foyer to the covered veranda you are greeted by beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, a cool breeze and the sound of ocean waves. Breath taking! The house was immaculate and the bedrooms spacious and comfortable. When we were at the house, we spent most of our time hanging out on the covered veranda our in the pool. Shark Hole is just a few blocks away and a great place to swim at low tide. We spent almost every morning there enjoying the natural Jacuzzi pool created by the waves as they pull back and forth over the barrier that creates the pool. It was wonderful and refreshing. St Phillip is close by and has everything you need as far as a large super market, restaurants and other things to make you stay comfortable. I will definitely visit again !
