I truly loved my stay at the Ocean Breeze Villa. The location of the house is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever been to. It is hard to leave this house!! The outdoor covered patio has the most beautiful views & ocean breeze. The salt water pool is stunning. The house is clean and comfortable and has everything you may need to enjoy yourself. There are beautiful beaches just minutes away and some great local restaurants like Cutters and Marco Polo. If you want to experience the peaceful uninterrupted natural beauty of Barbados, I truly recommend this home.
I didn't have any expectations when I arrived, but as soon as we pulled up I fell in love. The house is filled with unique artwork that gave a feeling of being in a home, not a rental. The outside seating area is impressive with plenty of space to eat breakfast or enjoy chai. The views from all of the windows are gorgeous. We opened them all and let the breeze flow throughout. We decided to cook new recipes all week and the kitchen, countertop space, and storage areas were perfect.
We were able to walk to Shark hole, visit several nearby beaches, and visit the flower cave. We even went to the drive-in. It was a wonderful vacation, can't wait to go back!
We love visiting Barbados and our wonderful stay at Ocean Breeze Villa reinforced why we do! Over 10 vacations on the Island - both family & friend oriented trips - our first stay at Ocean Breeze, but it won't be our last!
Amazing turquoise blue views all day from the veranda and pool and spectacular reverse sunsets to welcome in the evening. If you love fresh ocean air all day and night, this is your place!
The house is very well appointed, family friendly and cheerful with all the amenities you would expect. We stayed in the 2nd Master which has a very comfortable bed, soft pillows and nice quality linens. Towels were big & comfy! We loved having access to the outside grill - it's outdoor living at its best! We appreciated the easy access to the grocery store so we could supply our own home and enjoy dinners at home! At the suggestion of our hosts, we tried a few new restaurants in St. Philip with Marco Polo being a stand out. Of course, Cutters Deli is a mainstay for great day fare especially with live music on Sundays.
The beaches of St. Philip are special and this central location is perfect for easy access to beaches like the world famous Crane Beach to the less visited Harrismith to our new favorite swimming hole, Shark Hole, which is walking distance.
We've rented many villas in St. Philip and this is a favorite! We will be back again for sure!
Enjoyed one of the most fun and relaxing vacations I have ever had. This house was situated perfectly for those who wanted to venture out and those who wanted to just relax at the pool or on the amazing veranda. Shark Hole (just the name, didn't see any sharks!) is a wonderful quaint beach a short walk from the house along the amazing ocean cliffs. Four or five (maybe more) incredible ocean beaches within a few minutes drive from the house. We visited a different one each time. At times we were the only people on the beach. Very convenient to grocery store and beverage distributor for all our meal and drink needs. The house was well stocked with eating and cooking utensils as well as beach and bath towels. The name is quite fitting as the ocean breeze made for very comfortable outdoor lounging night and day and for a surprisingly comfortable sleep with the windows open. For those wanting to explore, some of our group enjoyed day trips to the Animal Flower Cave at North Point, Harrison's Cave (I recommend the Eco-Adventure Tour) and a trip to Bridgetown. Some wonderful places to eat just a short distance away. Cutters, Marc Polo & East Point Grill were the few that we went to. We saw several local roadside establishments we look forward to trying when we return. Looking forward to returning next year.
The Ocean Breeze was the best!!
Beautiful views, comfortable house with all amenities you need.
Great location...I give it 5 stars!
This house is totally ant infested and filthy. The kitchen has ants crawling over the beds, biting you while you sleep, they are all over the kitchen counters as well as the stove and refrigerator. The ants are in the bathrooms and they are nasty. The appliances are rusted, the kitchen counters and floor was caked with dirt and grease and the House Mgr had to get on her knees to scrub and clean the kitchen. The towels were soiled. The house is in need of so many repairs. The pool was dirty. The owner advertised the house as 4beds but this is only a 3bed house with a mattress in a storage room. I would not rent this for a dog to stay in.
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!
