AMANDA purchased this villa in 2014

Why AMANDA chose St. James

No 7 Porters Court, is perfectly situated for all amenities. Short walk to the beach, (4 minutes),via Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel, where we have taken out Beach Club Membership for our guests, on Glitter Bay, which is one of the most desirable beaches in Barbados. Holetown is within a 5 minute drive by car/local bus. Fine dining at the Lone Star is a bonus, just a short walk from No 7PC.

No 7 is part of a gated community of 8 villas with communal pool, maid service 2.5 days a week and managed by West Coast Villas.

What makes this villa unique

Beach Club Membership at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion. A 4 minute walk!

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved No.7! It exceeded our expectations on every level. Lovely inside and out. Fabulously equipped, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. So often when you plan to self cater you are left frustrated by the lack of kitchen equipment..........not at No.7! Everything you needed and more! Sheena and Wilma were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. We felt very well looked after. The communal gardens and pool area are very private and quiet. The view over the open countryside from the dining table was a joy. The villa is very well placed for the beach, restaurants and buses. Try the yellow dollar buses......a bit crazy but great fun and very regular. We had an amazing holiday.....I don't think we have ever felt so relaxed and refreshed after a holiday before. We will definitely return. Thank you Amanda!

Loved this Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a 10 day stay at 7 Porter's Court. This was our second trip to Barbados but our first stay at this lovely villa. We had a wonderful holiday and we feel very fortunate to have stayed at "no. 7".

The villa is extremely well equipped and so comfortable. It's very clean and beautifully maintained, as are the grounds and pool/pool area in the community of 8 villas. Sheena, the Property Manager, and Wilma, the Housekeeper, were both professional and accommodating. They made us feel very welcome.

The location of the villa was ideal for us. We chose not to hire a car so we liked the convenience of being able to hop on and off the buses at the stops outside the Fairmont Hotel. Holetown was easily accessible, either via a short bus ride or just a twenty minute walk away. There were lots of amenities there...shops, restaurants, and a large supermarket for all our grocery needs.

We loved going to the beach every day and enjoyed using the facilities at the Beach Club at the Fairmont. It was a great spot to relax, swim, walk on the beach and take in the beautiful sunsets. We also enjoyed having lunch or drinks at the Beach Bar!

Thank you to Amanda, the owner, for everything she did to help ensure we had a wonderful stay at 7 Porter's Court. We would definitely recommend this villa and hope we'll have the opportunity to stay again!

Beautiful house in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a fabulous week at 7 Porters Court. What a fantastic place! Porters Court itself is really lovely, very private and quiet, perfect for rest and relaxation. The house is beautifully decorated and immaculate both inside and out and it was the perfect size for four of us, with everything we needed.

The Beach Club membership is absolutely brilliant and we alternated mornings by the pool and afternoons enjoying the beach and swimming. There were always sun loungers available and the beach bar and facilities at the Fairmont were really handy.

The house is extremely well situated with the beach club right across the road and a number of fabulous places within walking distance including Santis beach bar which we loved for lunch and The Lonestar for dinner. We also caught the bus everyday, from the bus stop right outside, to go in to town for shopping or dinner; it's a great way to get about, super quick and a bargain at $2!

Thank you to the owner Amanda who was lovely and super helpful. Her suggestions for restaurants were absolutely spot on and there wasn't really anything that wasn't covered in the very comprehensive guide in the house.

We cannot recommend 7 Porters Court highly enough and look forward to hopefully going again in the future! :-)

A very comfortable ,quiet, well positioned villa

  • 5 of 5

We have had the most wonderful holiday staying at number 7 Porters court, really didn't want to leave! It was very spacious and comfortable, well positioned for the pool and lovely and peaceful. The house keeper kept it immaculate and was so helpful and even did some washing for us! It's only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach where we really enjoyed the use of the beach club. The guys who look after it are so friendly and always made sure we were happy, sorted any water sports we wanted and took us to snorkel with the turtles in our bay.

We loved the Santi beach bar which was on our bay and had great reasonable food and live music some evenings.The Lone Star was also lovely on the beach and was reasonable for an upmarket place at lunch times. It was easy to get around by bus which stopped at the end of the footpath near the villa.The regee buses were great fun and an experience in themselves!!! No need for a car as they are very regular. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa although like others have said I don't want too many people to know how good it is!!!

Perfect hideaway location close to beaches

  • 5 of 5

We had a such a wonderful stay at Porters Court, I almost don't want to tell everyone about it! :)

Situated opposite the most beautiful beaches on the west coast - with access to the Fairmont beach club included. With the cool box packed full of drinks and snacks, we spent our most of our days snorkeling and sunbathing until sunset.

The gorgeous villa itself is perfectly located within a private complex, beautifully landscaped and with a small pool allowing you to cool off from the tropical sunshine.

We hired a car to explore the island but this isn't essential as a hidden pathway through the complex leads you to the bus stop with frequent buses to take you along the coast to discover more beaches or towards Holetown to stock up on essential Rum in the supermarket! :)

The house itself is beautifully decorated and had everything you need to make you feel at home. We dined in and also explored the many restaurants on the West Coast with 'The Fish Pot' being our favourite!

The beach chairs and cool boxes were really handy for exploring more remote beaches with no facilities.

Sheena and Wilma went above and beyond to make our stay stress free.

Amanda said we wouldn't want to leave and she was right! Thank you for sharing your corner of Barbados - We had an amazing stay and look forward to returning with friends!

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable 9 days stay at Porters #7. Location is spot on with Beach Club access, which includes the use of loungers, being just across the road. Sky T.V and Aircon in the open plan area (not just in the bedrooms) made this a very comfortable stay.

We would certainly like to return in the future. Highly recommended. JOHN
