Stefanie and Elisabetta were welcoming and helpful. Their place was cosy, and in a great location for surfing. There's an amazing bar/restaurant within walking distance from the apartment. The garden was lovely and our toddler enjoyed running around in it. I would suggest having …

Stefano's apartment is fantastic and we had a great stay. It was the little things that made a huge difference to us. Stefano put a proper wooden cot (crib) in the bedroom for our son and also left us a high chair. There were also plenty of towels to use. The kitchen is full of e…

Good little property with easy access to 2 beaches in a fairly quiet, very 'local', location. It was great to have our towels changed throughout our stay. Wifi very fast. However, due to the location you do need access to a car - Oistins is not in walking distance and there are…

Response from Stefano & Elisabetta:
Hello Haley, we thank you for taking the time to write a review for our apartment, despite we were pretty astonished to read some phrases, because we have more than 200 excellent reviews in all OTAs (Online Travel Agency) including Airbnb and this is the first one we get where the guest is not 100% satisfied. We always suggest our guests to rent a car to visit the island and to go around for shopping etc, but we never wrote anywhere that we have Oistins town in walking distance or that everything you may need is around, as you can clearly read in all the accurate descriptions of this advert in AirBnb. We suppose you went frequently during your stay to Surfer Point for surfing, but it is not even mentioned as a nearby place by us in our apartment descriptions, because it is around 1.750 meter far from our Cottage and of course it is not in walking distance as you correctly wrote. Concerning the security deposit of 200 USD, it is specifically written on AirBnb web-site in our apartment booking policy and if your read carefully our first emails we also mentioned and remembered it to you, so that you knew it since the beginning, confirmed by the fact that at the arrival you gave us an envelop with the security deposit in it and at the end of your stay at the check-out we gave it to you back. We are sorry for the 2 holes on the mosquito screen, which we were not aware of and you did not tell us during 14 days of your stay, but we suppose the gardeners made it accidentally with their cutting tools (hedge trimmers) and we already replaced 2 of them today. What is NOT correct at all is that you wrote in the above review that "recently renovated" is not quite correct, but this is the reality. We purchased this specific apartment 3 years ago and just after few months later we started all the works which we are constantly doing, during which we replaced all floor tiles inside and outside, we treated and stained all the external wood, we changed and renew all bathroom with also new tiles, the bedroom with new furniture in wood and bamboo and we purchased and installed a new fully equipped kitchen with dishes, pots etc. and ceiling fans. The hammock which you never did not ask us at all, was and it is still inside the apartment in the storage cabinet, because we washed it and put it inside after the few days of heavy rains we have in this season. Now concerning the weather or the heavy rains, unfortunately we cannot control this too, we are in the Tropics and due to the heavy rains, if the grass, hedges and all plants in the garden and also outside our property are growing so fast, the only thing we can do is to call our gardeners few times more during the month and ask them to cut and trim them again, which is exactly what we did as you saw during your 2 weeks stay, in fact exactly just after few days from your arrival we called them and they did the job again. Even in the front property where we park all our cars, if the heavy rains make some mud, despite it is not our property, we regularly let the gardeners clean and maintain it. Unfortunately you come in Barbados during the rainny season at the Caribbean in the Tropics, which means that you have a high percentage of probabilty of rains and everything is growing faster too. We are sorry for the "chipped crockery"; we just checked in the kitchen and found 2 chipped dishes and a bowl, it must be a present of the previous guests; as you know, it can happen that the guests break something of our properties as it happened to you too with one of our kitchen glasses, so that we are wondering: how can you complain for the mis-matched glasses if you broke one too and even did not repleced it buying at least a new one? At least the other guests who broke the glasses bought them and replaced them, without complaining that the colors or the shape is not exactly the same! We did not even charge you a dollar for that and you did not pay even the laundry with the condominium washing machine for which there was a supplement which you knew. We constantly asked you if all was ok and if you needed something, but in 14 days of your holiday in our Cottage you always told me or Elisabetta that everything was fine and good. That's sounds strange to us. Best regards Stefano and Elisabetta Blue Ocean Cottage Silver Sands- Barbados

High price low quality. In reading some of the previous reviews we were disappointed in the overall standard of the villa. From the broken dishes, substandard bedding, pillows and linens, to absolutely no comfortable outdoor furniture, the cost for the villa was exceptionally h…

Response from Stefano & Elisabetta:
Dear Mr. K. Dunc, We thank you very much to take the time to write a terrible review in another reservation system and we really hope that you and all our future guests will take the same time to read our response to what you wrote, because we are pretty sure you copied and pasted your review from there to AirBnb too. We live just upstairs and we met each other every day to ask you if all was good and if you needed something, offering you all our assistance for your holiday. We provided you a boogie board, a float swimming pool noodle, our personal lunch/drinks cooler bag with 2 ice packs, 3 beach towels, made many different phone calls for your car rental, for booking your catamaran excursion etc. all free of charge and we also did not charge you the supplement for the extra person over the first 2, which is mentioned in all our adverts, which is normally between 10 and 20 USD per night depending on the season (now we are in high season), for a total of 200 USD of extra discount in this period; despite this you wrote us a terrible review! Shall will talk first about your general behavior without respecting the basic rules of a condominium or of an apartment located in a complex, not an independent Villa as you incorrectly wrote? We had 2 different complaints from the guests staying in both apartments next where you were staying, concerning your way of drinking since the first day of your arrival and also your loud voices not only during the day, but also during the early mornings or the late nights. Maybe for you it's normal, but sometimes when you do not rent a villa (as you wrote) but a self catering one-bedroom surrounded by other apartments in a condominium, you should think that you are not alone and that there are also other paying guests who have the right and want to sleep and relax during their stay and holiday! We would like to underline that Sea-view Apartment is NOT a Villa as you wrote or also an Hotel, but it is a self-catering one bedroom apartment at Blue Ocean Cottage, which is a property of 7 different apartments in 2 separated buildings. The 2 harm chairs of the patio have been replaced last year by 2 new wicker chairs with cushions, because the sun and the salt spray damaged them and of course you found the new ones under the covered patio. There are totally 6 more wooden chairs in the apartment of which (being your group of 3 people) the maid left 3 inside the kitchen around the round table and 3 outside around the rectangular table under the patio and all of them have a red cushion on it to be more comfortable! It's true that there are 2 plastic adirondack chairs in the garden with no cushions (they do not sell them in Barbados) which have been bought exactly 3 months ago and were still perfect before your arrival, but we think it's necessary now also to underline that, as you wrote us in one of your emails when you asked us also to book a car, you are a quite large person 193 centimetres 6’4” tall and I would add around 120 Kg. / 264 pounds of weight, so that I'm sure it was not our fault or your first time you had broken a chair and strangely on the harm side, not on the bottom. We should also mention that you were not authorized to bring our 2 plastic adirondack chairs on the hard and sharp rocks next the sea water like your wife and mother in law did the 3rd day of your stay (we both personally saw it), instead of going on the many different white sandy beach in the nearby or on the rest of the south coast maybe with calmer water considering the waves of this period, using our beach towels that we provided you free of charge. We provide the apartment with a fully equipped kitchen with more than all the necessary items, with a large fridge, freezer, toaster, american coffee maker, italian coffee machine, blender, different sets of stainless steel knifes also to cut any kind of meat, all kind of new pots, pans, glasses, cups and dishes. It's true that we do not provide salt, pepper or other staff like that, but it's not true that you did not find any of them because there is still salt, pepper and coffee maker filters inside the kitchen cabinets, which were purchased by the previous guests. As said we rent self catering apartment and all this kind of products or items must normally be purchased by you even if again... it's not true that you did not find dish soap next the kitchen sink as the maid left it with also a dish sponge. In the bathroom next the sink there is the "lovely soap dispenser" as you wrote, but with liquid soap in it; anyway again when you go in a self catering apartment this kind of articles are not included (if not specifically mentioned) and you should buy them by yourself even if we provide them anyway. The Kitchen itself has exactly 6 different 110 volt double sockets, so that we are talking about 12 different light plugs, with also an extra 220 volt power bar which you normally do not find in Barbados, with 3 different systems (10-16 and schuko) and 6 available spaces which is also good for our European guests. Concerning the security of our Cottage and apartments, since we purchased and start to manage this property in the 2010, we installed: security fences all around the property with 3 different gates, many different video cameras all around it and also iron security grates at the ground floors, which guaranteed our guests from having any problem of theft or malicious people. They also have a double gate opening at the main entrance which can be locked or if you did not feel comfortable left open and unlocked. Again strangely you are the first guest in 8 years who complained even for the security bars! We would like to underline also that all our bed linen and towels are new, bought and made in Italy, with high quality 100% soft cotton, nice graphics and of the best brands on the market such as Zucchi, Bassetti, Gaber, etc. which are very far away from the classic white simple and cheap bed sheets you can find in all apartments around. Maybe you have been offended by us when we told you that you damaged a big blue bathroom towel with violet spots which did not go away after the laundry and using specific detergents, maybe because you used a particular cream with Aloe, or maybe because we were expecting you at least to re-buy the chair broken by you with your weight and strong harms or at least refund us the price of it? Anyway we paid on our pocket for your damages despite we have a security deposit for this kind of issues through AirBnb. All this said we are very sorry that you would not recommend "Our Villa" as you called our self catering one-bedroom apartment, but we are very happy that you will not consider in staying here again, even because we surely will not want you as our guests anymore!

We were lucky to catch a few days last minute here. Great view of the ocean, a little bit of wildlife in the form of local monkeys, and not too far to get into Oistins by van, or a 30 min walk if you prefer. Thanks Stefano for a wonderful few days - definitely recommended.

Hello Marte! Thank you very much for your excellent review. We are very happy that our Sea-view Apartment was nice and clean and that you liked, us, the area and the people around.
