About the Owner
About Jo & Duncan Clements
We live and work in Central London. We visited Barbados for the first time in 2002 for our first wedding anniversary, having spent many holidays in the Caribbean previously. We both fell in love with the island, its friendly people and beautiful climate. After several more visits from 2003 to 2007 we decided to take the plunge and buy a home there which we will hopefully one day retire to. Duncan is a huge cricket fan and I am slowly being converted, especially after we were lucky enough to see England win the World T20 at the Kensington Oval in 2010! Over the years it has become more and more like our home from home, so much so that we really never want to leave. We hope this is reflected in our villa and the fact that it is as fully equipped and homely as our UK home!
Jo & Duncan Clements purchased this villa in 2008
Why Jo & Duncan Clements chose St. James
We love the location of the resort as it is close to the West Coast beaches and restaurants. It was important for us to buy a home which felt secure and Royal Westmoreland fit the bill perfectly, its 24/7 security giving us peace of mind from miles away. We also enjoy the myriad of facilities and for sports lovers there is always something to do be it a workout in the gym, tennis, swimming, running, golf etc. The beach club at Mullins is a great place to spend the day with free loungers, showers and changing facilities for Royal Westmoreland guests.
What makes this villa unique
Our villa is one of 34 within Forest Hills community. These villas share the Forest Hills communal pool. Our villa is the only detached one on the road and since we bought it we have tried to make it feel like home by taking out a good book collection, buying a new large plasma tv (to keep in touch with the Premiership and also for the cricket!) and a Weber gas barbecue.

A fantastic home in a superb location
We couldn't have asked for a better holiday rental. The house was stunning, good sized bedrooms and an amazing living space upstairs. We enjoyed using all the facilities on the resort. Owners incredibly helpful with queries whilst away. We will be back.
Bajan Sunset is a fabulous place to stay. We are regular renters in Royal Westmoreland and prior to arriving we were slightly anxious that the property might be too close to the road but it was fine. It is in excellent condition and is serviced by the lovely Cicely who is a delight. The owner Joanne was great to deal with both prior to and during our stay. I would recommend this villa to anyone.
Great location in Royal Westmoreland
We stayed in Bajan Sunset for two weeks in May 2014 and had a fabulous holiday. The villa was all that it was described to be and proved to be a great location in the beautiful grounds of Royal Westmoreland.
We were well looked after by Cecily the housekeeper who was extremely helpful and who also did our washing and ironing which was a real bonus. We have been regular visitors to Barbados over the last 20 years and Bajan Sunset has been our favourite place to stay - so much so that we have booked again for 2015!
A beautiful villa in a fantastic location
We first visited beautiful Barbados on honeymoon 17 years ago and always wanted to return! We are so glad we did and the holiday was off to a fantastic start with a great flight on Virgin Atlantic. We arrived mid afternoon in our rented Mini Moke and were absolutely bowled over by our beautiful home for the next 11 nights! Jo and Duncan's villa is situated on the beautiful Royal Westmoreland Estate which immediately felt safe and secure with a very warm welcome from the security guys. On arrival, Cecily the housekeeper greeted us and showed us round the villa which has everything you could possibly need! The beds are incredibly comfortable, the furnishings lovely, tasteful and homely and the kitchen well equipped. We had a lovely balcony with a stunning view to the sea and comfortable outdoor chairs and dining area. The facilities at Royal Westmoreland are great although it was very quiet (its a quiet time of the season). We didn't really use the pool or restaurant as we spent many happy days down at Mullins beach with complimentary beds, towels, parasols and had supper at the restaurant. Our daughters also loved the inflatable play area in the sea and we had lots of fun waterskiing, jet skiing etc (not included in the price but reasonable prices). You can also order a drink on the beach by putting up the flag by your sunbed, which was really nice and the cold eucalyptus face towels that the beach staff offered you to cool down morning and afternoon was a very nice touch! We also travelled around the island to the south and east coast (Crane Beach is stunning) and had a great evening out at Oistins on the Friday! At the end of each day we returned to gorgeous "Bajan Sunset" for a shower and pre dinner G&T or a BBQ using the Weber on the balcony. An added bonus was finding that the housekeeper had been in, cleaned and made the beds and even done the washing that we put in the laundry basket! All in all a wonderful holiday in a beautiful villa and we wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thanks Jo and Duncan.
