We have now stayed in Chris's apartments 3 times and have already booked to return later in the year for our family holiday. It is a perfect base for visiting the island. It is situated in a quiet residential area of St Philip, with beautiful views out to sea, which we particularly enjoy first thing in the morning and again in the evening. It is only a 10 minute drive from the airport, and Chris kindly arranges a hire car for us on each visit. Stunning beaches, such as Foul Bay and Crane Beach are a few minutes drive from the apartment, but we often chose to drive to Pebbles Beach or Carlisle Bay near Bridgetown in St Michael (only about 20 mins if you avoid rush hour) for the calm sea and water sports, in particular GFish scuba diving with whom we regularly dive. Chris will be happy to refer any divers to GFish. Chris is always happy to answer any questions and provide advice on where to visit. Ricardo has also been very helpful. The apartments are very clean and well maintained, with furnishings to a very high standard. Cant wait to head back!
This is an amazing part of the island and a great and safe neighborhood. Close enough to amazing calm beaches on the west and the gateway to incredible beaches on the east. This is a great place to start every day to explore the island. Ricky and Chris have a well oiled operation and are responsive when you need it. The layout and view were perfectly suited for our family (2 children 4 & 8). The kitchen is great for some home cooked meals and you are a 5 min drive away from the Crane hotel and beach for amazing dinners overlooking Crane beach. So much to do and Chris and Ricky will help with anything you need on the island. I highly recommend this area and Chris' apartment.
I stayed with my brother and sister in law for a three week getaway after a busy year. The apartment was just what we had hoped for. It was well equipped spotlessly clean with a nice lounge, kitchen and dining area. The apartment had air conditioning and patio doors to a covered patio. It was quiet and away from the crowds whilst only ten minutes from the airport.
It was ideal for exploring the island and it was only a 20 minute drive to visit the bars and restaurants along the coast at St Lawerence Gap.
Marco Polo restaurant was just up the road opposite The Crane resort.
We will definitely return to Barbados and these apartments give you the best of both worlds, a quiet retreat on the cliff edge with wonderful Atlantic views whilst having the odd glass of wine on the patio and the ability to go to clubs when you want to but not have the rowdiness on your door step.
I’m so pleased we found this apartment as we saw much more of the real Barbados rather than just staying in St Lawrence. The locals are so friendly and Ricky the manager was lovely.
I had a fantastic weeks stay at Ocean City apartments, big thanks to our host Chris who helped make the stay perfect with some great tips and advice about getting the most from this beautiful island. The apartments have amazing views of the sea and benefit from cool breezes making it perfect for relaxing. The accommodation itself is like a home from home. All mod cons, well-equipped kitchen includes a big fridge ideal for cooling soft drinks and of course the odd Banks beer. Beds were comfortable and the apartment was very clean. The wifi worked well enough for me to Skype family at home. The aircon is effective and good to help relax from the hot sun. Ocean City is a short drive from the airport and is a good base to see Barbados. Highly recommend these apartments good value, great host will use again
