About the neighbourhood
We are only 90 meters far from the sea, 130 meters from the beach of Silver Sands, 280 meters away from Rescue Beach, and 410 meters from Silver Rock Beach. We have also Surfer's Bay Restaurant and Pub, which is 170 meters from us. We are 7 minutes away by car from Oistins (where there is the famous Fish Market, shops, a large supermarket, bank, pharmacy, gas station, etc.) and 15 minutes from St. Lawrence Gap with great restaurants, outdoor cafés, pubs and shops. At a few minutes walk (300 meters) there is the bus stop which leads to Oistins, St. Lawrence until Bridgetown; It costs one US dollar each way and the service operates from early morning until around midnight. We also have a taxi service 24/7 and also 2 minimart in the nearby.
Getting around
Concerning directions it's very easy: just go to Silver Sands Hotel, everybody knows it; just opposite to the main entrance of the Hotel you take the first right turn (there is a big light pole with our sign of Blue Ocean Cottage named on it) then you keep straight, pass an orange Bar (the Pirate's Tavern), a curve to the right and then the second building on the right side of the rooad is our Sweet Jewel Apartments; you cannot miss us because it's the only white property with just the ground floor and few Coconut and Royal Palms. For any other doubt click on this link below on our web-site of Google Earth, it's the second image of the page (the first belongs to our Blue Ocean Cottage which is 50 meters forward:
