About Chloe

This house is owned by my Grandmother Christine, but managed by me, her granddaughter. Granny was born and bred in Barbados and has a special love for collecting unique and special property throughout the isalnd. This property is one of her favorites and we are so happy to share it with you.

Why Chloe chose Barbados

The house has been owned and operated by our family for over 50 years. My grandmother has overseen countless renovations and updates and it is a property very close to our heart. It is a beautiful family home on an exquisite, private beach with the most beautiful blue water and white sand. Stay with us and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay in your house. We liked the fact that it was a whole

house with privacy and that it was very clean and comfortable. We loved

the fact that the kitchen was fully functional and that you had BBQ grill.

We liked the location and having the beach behind it. It was perfect for

snorkeling. The washing machine and dryer worked fine and so did the internet connection.

Thank you for all of the above.

average rating of 4.5 based on 22 reviews

It's a little piece of paradise...never get tired of the view, the sunsets every afternoon!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Hollow is an amazingly affordable gem on the west coast where the sea is like a huge swimming pool!! Except we can go snorkeling, swim among turtles and fish! We love this property not only because the beach and ocean are on our doorstep but especially because of the mature mahogany trees that shade it from the afternoon sun and when not sun tanning, can relax under with a book. The house has everything you need and the house manager Chloe is the best!

Private Beachfront

  • 5 of 5

Clean two bedroom villa on the beach. From the front gate of the villa, you can take a left to the sandy beach or take a right towards crystal cove sandy beach. You cannot swim directly infront of this villa due to small amd medium rocks, but its private, beautiful, and a good place to sit on porch and listen to the sea and the waves hitting the rocks. We walked up and down the beaches many times. Many small crabs in the yard and rocks to see. Turtles and fishes to see within a four blocks swim radius.

Villa came with all utilities, all utensils, AC only in bedrooms and living room hot at times. Fans in all the rooms. We kept all the windows closed after getting 95% of mosquitos out with citronella candels. Will need to shop for more toilet paper, bath soap and dish soap and any grocery items you need for the week. We ate at the roti den, el tiempo II, tamarind hotel, the lobster pot, the boatyard, De outback. Go to Carlie Bay if you want many sports activies and umbrellas on the beach: the boartyard offers this. Speightown is not far and has great quiet beaches and there is shopping there that is much more reasonable than limegrove which was expensive. It was a quite and relaxing week. Feels like true island living.

Cozy Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Ocean Hollow for an extended weekend, and had a wonderful experience. The photos posted do not do this place justice...very scenic spot, beautiful ocean views, very well kept place.

It was hard leaving, but we are sure we will be back again.

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay at.

Everything is close by. Located on the major bus route you can get on of off right outside the cottage on the street and most anywhere.

The cottage is very nice with everything needed for your stay. The owners stopped by to check on us to see how everything was and have the yard cleaned regularly. This is a great place for a couple or two, even a small family to stay.

The ocean comes right up to the gate access to the beach. Wonderful. We highly recommend this place for a winter getaway.

The property was very clean, modern and comfortable. The pictures didn't do a justice.

  • 4 of 5

If you are a beach person you do not need to leave this property. We walked the beach multiple times a day. There was a nice size beach for most of the day but when the tide was coming in it would go away. We swam right next store in the public swimming area, which was never crowded. The house had all you needed. Could have used a few more kitchen pans but we made it work with what we had. They don't supply dishwashing detergent so bring some from home as prices are expensive at the grocery store for the few washes you do while you are there. We used the washer and dryer as they do not supply many towels so you need to wash them. Our party of 4 had a fabulous time at this house and would highly recommend it to anyone. It's a quiet area with a lot of privacy. We grilled out on the patio most nights and ate outside 3 times a day, why wouldn't you with that view. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Bring mosquito repellent for sure. We brought a few citronella candles from home and those really helped out. Mike and Chloe were amazing to work with and were very helpful with any questions we had. We would totally go back!

What we were looking for

  • 4 of 5

We have rented flats and houses on this site and others throughout Europe and North America and consider ourselves savvy renters. The holiday rental experience is a cocktail consisting of 1 part diligent research, 1 part good two way communication and 1 part pure leap of faith. When you get what you expect based on photos, reviews and owner feedback, that's success. Our 7 night stay at Ocean Hollow turned out to be what we were seeking and what we expected. Our key requirement was to be beachfront and Ocean Hollow's location on the west side of the island met that requirement - in spades. We spent many relaxing hours eating meals, reading our books and watching the surf on the comfortable deck metres from the ocean. Others have noted that getting in for a swim is a "rocky" experience. My partner is a capable swimmer and diver and had no difficulty (bring water shoes); but if you are seeking endless beach days swimming off a sandy beach and baking in the sun, stick to an all-inclusive. If instead you are looking for a private, quiet, well-furnished self-catered experience, with the ability to visit lovely restaurants (you will need a car, be willing to take taxis, or take local buses as we often did) this house if for you. We enjoyed our week immensely. Bonus points given for: helpful and lovely interactions with Chloé, outdoor hot shower, washer/dryer/, lightning fast wifi, big screen TV to watch the Academy Awards, the incredibly gracious and helpful locals, and more. Constructive feedback to owners: It may be time for a small cash outlay for some additional kitchen basics (tools and staples), new linens, firmer and newer mattresses, better kitchen and bathroom lighting, and yes, please think about doing something about those treacherous master bathroom stairs, as one reviewer pointed out. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Ocean Hollow. The house is in a beautiful shady spot, right on the water that is perfect for relaxing and watching the sunset over the Caribbean Sea in the afternoons. Thank you for your feedback as we will be completing updates to the property during the slower summer months and hope that you return to stay with us soon!
