We loved our vacation in Barbados and Oceanbliss was a great place to celebrate our return after an absence of 14 years; clean, immaculate and quiet, exactly what we were looking for.
Mr. Keith was an excellent host, being there at our arrival and at the time of our departure. He took us around when we needed him for groceries, etc. A generous man with his time.
We will be back next year.
Until then, we send you our warmest regards from a very cold day in Val-Morin.

Dear Suzanne, Keith, Michelle and Sandra
Many thanks for the use of appartment 3, which in our opinion, was most enjoyable. The clenliness of the room and facilities (bed linen, micorvave, toaster, crockery etc) has to be comended. We will have no hesitation in returning and recomending to family, friends and work colleagues. We had a most enjoyable stay, look forward to returning.

We stayed at Ocean Bliss from 16-23 June and really enjoyed it! The first afternoon Keith showed us around (apologies for not letting you know that we would not meet you at the airport....)and took us to the supermarket. Thanks! The apartment (nr 8)is clean, spacious,well equiped and has a nice balcony,with view on the ocean. Certainly very good value for its price! A car is very useful to visit other beaches (e.g.Worthing Beach), St. Lawrence Gap (some nice restaurants there!) or other parts of the island. Nice quiet spot on a lovely island!

We have being staying at Ocean Bliss for many, many years. It is totally wonderful. Large, super clean apartments, great cooking facilities, beautiful ocean views. We could go on and on. Most importantly is the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner. Thank you Keith !!!! We will be back.

First time stay @ your place.
Were given very good comments by others prior visiting the Ocean Bliss.
Found the apartment spotless, quiet and very comfortable.What we had seen in your website prior visiting you was quite accurate,namely it reflected pretty much the reality., i-e no hidden surprises. This is Excellent.From the moment of the reservation......we were picked up promptly by Keith at the airport, who in turn took the time to make a stop at the grocery store, so we could at least collect some foods and beverages for the next morning. Beach was closer than we thought and the various buses to Oistins, etc..were rather closer than we thought, as well.My wife and I wish to extend 'congrats' to a well run business. Everything is done very smoothly and with lots of confidence.Also please make sure, you past our special thanks to Keith who has done his very best and also we have appreciate his company as a good human being.

I had a wonderful experience at Ocean Bliss apartments. It really was bliss! The apartment was clean, spacious and had beautiful views over the water. I really enjoyed relaxing in the hammock provided too!
Keith was there to answer any questions I had and was very helpful. In fact, all the staff at Ocean Bliss were happy and helpful at all times. They really made my experience more enjoyable.
I can't wait to come back to Barbados and will make sure I book into Ocean Bliss. I have stayed at 3 other places on the island that were at a similar rate per night but none compare to Ocean Bliss!
Thank you for a wonderful holiday

Just wanted to let you know that for the most part, Joel and myself enjoyed our stay at your apartments. We appreciated the cleanliness and serenity of the apartment, the space as well as the pick-ups on both days. I was a bit sceptical when I made my booking due to my unfamiliarity with the place, but I was extremely happy with my selection.

We chose to come at low season to have a quiet and restful time, just how we like it. The apartment was spacious, furnished with taste and very clean with kitchen appliances as numerous and varied as if you had been at home. The view on the ocean from the balcony was fantastic. We thank Suzanne and her family for their great hospitality.

We just can't seem to stay away. We keep returning year after year. The apartments are so roomy and so very clean. The cool ocean breezes and the view are fabulous. The hospitality of Suzanne and Keith is unbeatably. They are both so helpful. We love Ocean Bliss and cannot wait to return again next year.

Hi Suzanne & Keith
We are back in Montreal and we had a super flight no turbulence and we gain ½ an hour so that was just great. The weather here is unbelievable we never had this kind of nice winter as far I can remember but we are not comparing with Barbados of course, thank you 2 again for providing such a beautiful super clean and feel at home condo the only regret we have is that we only found out about Oceanbliss 3 years ago. So again thank you 2 and Sonja for been so nice with us it is very much appreciated we are anxious to see you next year. Have a good and a healthy one.

Hi Suzanne& Keith,
We really enjoyed staying at Ocean Bliss. Keith took us to the grocery store and waited while we made our first purchases. What a great service. He then continued to show us the beaches and night life possibilities. Our compliment to house keeping for a very clean appartment. Hope to return soon for another wonderful vacation. Once again thanks.

Amazing hotel with amazing owners.
This is the 2nd time staying there. Hotel super clean (thanks Wendy), huge rooms, comfortable and safe. Owners, Keith and Suzanne were the nicest people and very helpful. When they thought they might not be able to drive us from the airport, they said they would arrange a cab and pay. Location is very quiet, but right across from beautiful beaches. Just stay away form Long Beach! ZR vans stop right down the street to take you basically anywhere. Love this hotel!
24 Apr, 2009
The Ocean Bliss experience far exceeded anything I expected. The apartment was spacious, clean, fully functioning amenities, lovely views, and the location was ideal, away from the bustling crowds (which I loved). Transportation was a breeze. The ZR buses were very easily accessible and could take you to Bridgetown for just $1.50 bdos dollars. The beaches were very close by, one was right behind the apartment. I loved the peacefulness of the area. The owners, Suzanne and Keith were really warm and accommodating to me and my friend, and Wendy was really helpful too. I do have one regret though..........that I did not stay longer!

Wir sind zum Kiten nach Barabados gefahren. Die Unterkunft war hierfür hervorragend geeignet. Kurzer Weg zum Beach und gute Lagerung des Kitematerials möglich (sowohl im Zimmer, als auch auf dem Balkon, als auch im seperaten Schuppen).
Die Sauberkeit des Apartments war gut, die Ausstattung hervorragend! Alles vorhanden - von der Kaffeemaschine, Toaster, Mikrowelle, Mixer über Sandwich-Maker, Ofen, Herd bis hin zum Bügeleisen, Ventilatoren und Fön ist alles vorhanden!
Für zwei Personen war die Größe des Apartments ideal, mit 4 Personen muss man sich wahrscheinlich etwas einschränken, weil dann zwei Personen im Wohnraum schlafen. Für 2 Personen allerdings perfekt, fast zu groß :-))
Deshalb meine Meinung - Prädikat: "Empfehlenswert"!

Just wanted to send a quick note to say your hospitality was amazing and Valus and I really enjoyed our stay with you, I'd like to come last week of April. If you have space avl

We wanted to take some time out to say thank you again. Our stay at Ocean Bliss was wonderful. The apartment was exactly the way the pictures describe. I was a little concerned about that when booking, but it was all so beautiful. Your hospitality was way above expectations as well. We were used to staying at hotels on our holidays, but again this was an exception!!! The location, the surrounding area, being close to a private beach as well as having the public transportation very convenient which enabled us to go back and forth to town and Oistens....everywhere. We as you know will be back again this year!!!

We stayed at Ocean Bliss Apts. from Dec. 23/07 through to Jan 10/08. We LOVED our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a beautiful and private apartment. Many thanks to Suzanne and Keith for making our stay so comfortable, you are both such warm and loving people. Taking the time on our arrival to show us the beaches, grocery stores, good nightly entertainment and the bus system was a generous welcoming we never expected ! Your hospitality was second to none ! The apartment was so clean with the convenience of every kitchen item anyone needed. We loved the quiet surroundings of the location and only being 20 minutes to great shopping and larger beaches was a plus. We hope this was one of many trips to Barbados, throughout the entire island we met such kind loving people and would love to return for some more hot, sunny r & r !

What a wonderful time we had in Barbados (this August), the view from the balcony (and the great roof view) over the Caribbean Sea was absolutely breathtaking. We really enjoyed Ocean Bliss as our home during these 2 weeks and our daughter really loved Kittie and her friend as they got attached during the 2 weeks. We definitely enjoyed touring the island with our hirecar (the rental company was absolutely great - bending backwards to please us as you, Keith and Suzanne, did too). We will definitely be back to Barbados some time as we have not yet been able to go down Harrison's Cave due to rennovations, but most of all to enjoy the tranquility of the island, the beautiful beaches and the great atmosphere!

I had to write and let you know what a great time we had in Barbados and Ocean Bliss this July/August.
Having taken the chance of booking the apartment without any recommendations and basing our decision on the very good price and the virtual tour on your website, I was a bit apprehensive. However, as soon as we arrived it was clear there was nothing to worry about. The apartment was great. It was spotless, spacious and had THAT ocean view. It rapidly became our home away from home. It was the perfect location from which we explored the island.
We loved the peace we had being by the sea and also enjoyed the fact that we were able to drive to Oistins in about 10 minutes and that the same road took us to St Lawrence Gap and Bridgetown.
Having the hire car was fantastic but even when we travelled by the ZR bus, the service on the number 11 was brilliant. It was regular and fast.
I have wanted to visit Barbados for years and can say that the holiday lived up to all of my expectations. Thank you for all that you did to ensure that we had such a memorable holiday.
07 Sep, 2007
Hi Suzanne and Keith!
Just to thank you for having us.
We had a lovely holiday, not only because Barbados is a beautiful island and the people are so friendly, but also because we had such a comfortable and spotlessly clean apartment and such nice hosts as yourselves.
Thank you Keith for the taxi and supermarket rides.
Hope to be back very soon.

Back from Barbados a month already and can't stop thinking of "Ocean Bliss". We have stayed there 3 years in a row (long stays) and as always everything was perfect. The spacious clean apartment, the quietness, the cool ocean breeze, the view....pure heaven. Ocean Bliss is truly "BLISSfull" and we have already booked again for next year. Can't wait!!! Thank-you again Suzanne and Keith for making our wonderful "Barbados Home" available to us and thank-you for being so very friendly and accomodating. See you next year.

Hi M/M Payne,
This is Kevin, the guy who stayed at your hotel just a few weeks ago with Karen . I must say I truly enjoyed my one week of vacation at your facility very much. The welcome was good, the place was exceptionally clean, everything in the kitchen area was to our satisfaction, the area was ideal... I mean what more can I ask for? I have no problem recommending your hotel to others who are looking for a very nice vacation.
You are such a lovely couple and a very successful one too. If there's anything that you want me to do please don't hesitate to call upon me, I'll be at your service. One thing I do know though is that you have not seen the last of me. I've finally found a nice vacation spot and that's the Ocean Bliss Apartments. It's fabulous!!!!

One month of pure bliss. We just came back and are ready to go back. Everything about Ocean Bliss is pure magic. The location, the apartment, the view, the ever present sound of the waves and, of course, the hosts Suzanne and Keith. And a big thank you to Jennifer for keeping everything in top shape all the time.
Far away from the touristy spots. Ocean Bliss is a haven of peace and beauty.
Barbados is a jewel. The bajans make it welcoming and warm. We can't wait to be back there.
See you soon!

I just love staying at Ocean Bliss. When I first stayed there I was amazed at the space and facilities, real good value for money,Jennifer, who services the APts to a high standard and that extra bonus of Suzanne and Keith who are so friendly and down to earth. I have stayed there 4 times in the past 2 years and am just about to book again. As soon as I get there I feel like I'm home again!!! Keep keeping it real Suzanne and Keith, see you soon!!

- didn't know what to expect but everything about Ocean Bliss was way beyond our expectations. Spotlessly clean, beautifully equipped - by far the best self catering apartment I have ever stayed in. Keith and Suzanne are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble.
Waking up and going to sleep to the sound of the ocean, the peace and quiet. Not in a tourist area, thank goodness. We hired a car and stayed right away from the 'blue chip tourists, surrounded by their armed guards'. We travelled all over the island, used the local buses at times (an experience not to be missed), ate at Oistins and met the wonderful people of Barbados. We taught a dance school some new dances and all in all, had just about the best time possible.
Ocean Bliss is still vivid in my memory and we will return there. We always felt safe and welcome everywhere we went.
I cannot think of one bad thing to say about Ocean Bliss or Barbados!

Perfect holiday accommodation!
quality accommodation only surpassed by our frendly hosts a real home from home!! these apartments cannot be be bettered anywhere on the island

I got up from dinner tonight and it just occurred to me that I want to e-mail you and tell you how much I enjoyed our holiday with you at Ocean Bliss, Christ Church, Barbados. I am quite sure I speak for Sandra (jennyintrini in the Cc line) too, and so I will tell you how much WE enjoyed our holiday. You provide a spacious, comfortable and attractive place in an area of peace and beauty. Even better, you are welcoming and friendly and make the visitor feel instantly at home. The facilities were wonderful from our standpoint, and we used them all. Sandra made spectacular dinners, and I made simpler breakfasts. Sandra watched on the balcony it seemed for hours for "my turtles" to make a very brief appearance at the surface. We went down to the beach at daybreak and sunset. We lived a very good life. Neither of us could have been happier. Our two wonderful weeks with you were a very special time in our lives, and we thank you for offering the perfect place for us to spend it. I will send one of our many pictures, showing what we called "our jacuzzi." Sandra discovered it during a walk-about on our first day, and we returned a number of times, hoping the tide was up to give us that jacuzzi action.All the best to Keith and you, and thank you for everything. We would be very pleased if the forces of the planet brought us back to you someday.

......but at least it's sunny today and spring should be just around the corner. I walked around in my garden today and saw that the tulips are peeking out and my pussy willows are open. I will have to ask Jim to cut a few branches to bring inside. (They are very tall and I can't reach them)
We really enjoyed staying at Ocean Bliss and will recommend your apartments to friends and acquaintances.
All the best,

Just a short note to let you know that we arrived home safely. Our fish also arrived safely. Our flight was very uneventful which is a good thing.
Thank - you again for making our "Wonderful Barbados Home" available to us. We really love Ocean Bliss. Thank - you also for allowing our guests to sleep over for the night. It was much appreciated. You and Keith are great people.
I will keep in touch and let you know our dates for 2007 as soon as I can. I'm missing Barbados already.....
Thanks again for everything and take care. You are really looking great. Talk to you again soon. Say Hi to Keith.

Beautiful City, Beautiful People!!!
I spent a wonderful 12 days in Barbados from 27th July to 8th August and it was my first time seeing The Crop Over, I never regret one second. Special thanks to intimate Hotels of Barbados I was a lucky winner of your sweepstakes and won two tickets to Roots and Rhythms at the Plantation. The food was good the show and dance even more exciting. I took along with me two of my friends (Bajans) who lives there and had never visited the Plantation before (neither had I) and they enjoyed the night now their talking about going back with others. I will be back again to Barbados and the plantation as soon as my holiday comes around and I definitely will be bringing along some friends from here next time. I stayed at the wonderful Ocean Bliss Apartments for the second time I love it there, it is spacious and have everything a home has, the lovely beach front Apt.,overlooking the sea, the quietness of it all is overwhelming. It is very unique in many ways, a home away from home.
