“Authentic Barbados away from the tourist trap”
Reviewed 17 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014
people found this review helpful

We have just arrived home after a relaxing holiday at Ocean View,the owner went out of his way to make our visit enjoyable and quickly sorted out any little problems that arose. His mum lives on the Island and made sure we were comfortable both on arrival and during our stay. Hello Gloria,The villa is on the less populated eastern side of the island in a quiet local area, the sea view is lovely and the patio benefits from the wind which in the afternoon heat is most welcome. As the villa is away from most tourist areas and a little isolated, a vehicle is a must to get the most out of the Island, no where is more than an hour away even when you get lost now and again. If you want parties, loud nightlife and karaoke then go some where else, if you want peace and the chance to enjoy traditional Bajan life, then this is the place for you. Don't expect the luxury and surroundings of a 5*hotel, just a basic,clean, comfortable apartment which is a great base when exploring the Island, if we return to Barbados we will be more than happy to return to Ocean View, the neighbours are friendly, the area safe the owner helpful and the weather great, what more could you want.
