About the Owner

Hello, my name is Kim, my family and I own Fairway Villa in Holders Hill. My family reside near Venice in Italy but I live in UK, therefore I look after the enquiries and the bookings for the Villa. Most of our guests are from the UK but we had families from Italy, France, Germany, Canada and the USA. I speak English, Italian and Spanish, so you can contact me in any of the above languages if you need information. All of our guests, so far, have been extremely satisfied with Fairway Villa and the friendly service we provide. Good comments on the cleanliness of the Villa, the comfort it offers, the great location and the quietness of the place. I hope that you too will be one of our future guests. Please don't hesitate to contact me for any enquiry you might have. Regards. Kim.

We starei for Christmas and New Year (old years night locally) and had a great time. We stayed on the island many times over the last year and this accommodation was right up there in terms of location and convenience.

The Villa is really comfortable and well furnished with everything we needed for our stay. Holders Hill is a great area to be located in. Close to Holetown food stores, other shops and the beach. All a short drive away.

You are in a residential area so it was lovely and quiet and behind gates so it felt safe.

The shared pool was a real bonus. There's only four houses that shared the pool and for the three weeks we were there, we had it for ourselves. We didn't use it much though as there are great beaches less than five minutes away.

Barbados is renown for being friendly and welcoming. Kim and MAuden certainly lived up to it. Essential groceries in the fridge and a welcome smile. What more could you want!

I would not hesitate to stay again.

Location

From the Owner

We always loved Barbados and kept returning to the Island every year. One day, I suggested having a look around the area for a Villa of our own. We were extremely fortunate when we came across Fairway Villa and immediately fell in-love with it for the great location in the Parish of St James, near the great beaches of the West Coast and all the closeness to the pretty village of Holeyown, the space it offered and the light and airy rooms .The Villa exceeded our expectations. We like the area very much, as it is upmarket, near the prestigious Sandy Lane Golf Course and also, being on a hill it benefits from lovely breeze throughout the year.

Facilities

From the Owner

Being safe was one of our prerogative. Quietness. No traffic noise. Surrounded by luscious vegetation. Near all amenities. West Coast location, we prefer that side of the island as we find it less commercialised and more " Caribbean". Not so much traffic on the roads comparing to the South. Greater freedom than being stuck in apartments,the rooms are very spacious they all have air conditioning units but also ceiling fans. Having a garden and being able to eat " al Fresco" and have BBQ is a great advantage. The laundry room is such a great benefit, so is the WI-Fi internet. More space for children to play than apartments. In a walled and gated Estate. The pool, being a good size, is great to enjoy for adults and children. Parking inside the Estate for two cars.
