Restful, ideally located villa revisited

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to villa 7 and our 3rd to the little group of eight villas in the secure complex that shares a pool. Both and owner and management company are very helpful and make sure everything you need is arranged for your stay.

Although you cannot see the sea, it is a 3 minute walk away. Access via a public way or the current owners at no 7 have membership to the club directly opposite, part of the Fairmont.

Other residents are usually sociable, but most enjoy the tranquility of their own verandah or sitting around the pool.

Visit Ju-Ju’s bar on the beach, the Lone Star restaurant (for it’s setting), and the excellent chef at Fairmont Royal Pavillion does an international buffet on a Tuesday evening.

The house is immaculate with everything you need, and serviced during your stay. I would recommend for a couple, like us, who want plenty of room, a family or two couples.

Delightful Villa in a superb location!!

  • 5 of 5

A delightful Villa. Tastefully furnished with everything high class. The owners, Amanda and Steve Sims were excellent in helping us whenever needed. Likewise, Barbara Gill (manager) and the lovely housekeeper Wilmur very efficient and so friendly. The property was always immaculately kept and the surrounding gardens and pool a delight. Having access to The Fairmont Royal Pavilion was fabulous.- Beautiful sun-loungers/umbrellas etc at hand, plus wonderful waiter/ess service to supply the all important Rum Punches and Caribbean Cocktails!! The location of 7 Porters Court was also superb. Hiring a car is not necessary because buses stop just out side the back gate, where you can travel to Holetown, Speightstown or anywhere on the Island for as little as BD$2. So shopping is easy, and the new Massy's at Holetown is easy to get to and very good. To list all the delights surrounding #7 would take for ever. However must mention--All the local beaches-Alleynes,Gibbs,Mullins etc all so beautiful and close at hand!! Restaurants--The lone Star, Tides, Surf Side (Steel Band Sunday evenings), Zaccios and of course the ever famous The Cliff. They all serve excellent food and the ambience super. My daughter and I have just spent the most marvellous 2 weeks at 7 Porters Court, and we can only say to Amanda and Steve that it was a pleasure to have stayed in their delightful Villa. We are certainly looking forward to returning to Beautiful Barbados, and without doubt we will certainly be recommending to our friends and family. Best Wishes to Amanda and Steve. Eddie and Alison.

Fabulous villa, superb location & wonderful break

  • 5 of 5

What more can be said that hasn’t already been stated!! A fabulous villa in a superb location resulting in a wonderful break! My wife and I visited in early December with our son and his fiancée, returning home just before the Christmas festivities. The weather was consistently hot & sunny, with the odd tropical downpour.

What a delightful find on the lovely West Coast of Barbados. Porters Court No.7 is just perfect with every amenity you could ever want, the décor is tasteful and the villa is furnished to an exceptionally high standard. The villa is set within peaceful grounds with immaculately kept gardens and pool area.

The location of the villa is perfect with the lovely Alleynes Bay just a stone’s throw away from the villa across the main coast road. Membership to the Fairmount Beach club is included in the rental cost which was an added bonus, should you fancy a break from the pool or travelling further afield to the many lovely beaches around the island.

There is so much to do in Barbados and particularly around the Holetown area. We had an amazing day on the Catamaran Stiletto, which sailed from Bridgetown, the crew Sheldon and Shaun were excellent hosts, they even produced a cake for my wife and everyone on board sang Happy Birthday. Drinks were flowing all day & also a tasty lunch provided, swimming with turtles & snorkelling around shipwrecks. A memorable fun day at a very reasonable price. We didn’t hire a car but found the trips on the local and reggae buses an interesting experience, a great and cheap way to see the island.

There are so many excellent restaurants close to the villa, the recommendations that Steve and Amanda provided were tremendous. It would be difficult to choose a favourite from the variety of places visited, as each was wonderful & individual. The local people we met were so friendly.

Wilma the housekeeper was chatty and always full of fun. Thank you so much Steve and Amanda for all the help and information you provided prior to our trip and for answering our queries whilst over in Barbados. We will definitely be returning to the island!

Lovely house, fantastic location, another relaxing stay at No7.

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for our family of 4. Lovely house, airy and light, with everything you could need inside, to give it that home- rather than holiday rental feel.

Excellent location, stunning beach 2 min walk. Access to sun loungers at the Fairmont was and added bonus

Fabulous owner who couldn't do enough for us.

Highly recommended for relaxing holiday in a beautiful, stretch of the West Coast.

Thank you Amanda, we hope to stay for the 4th time one day 😄

Wonderful holiday in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband and two teenage children) and I stayed at No 7 Porters Court this summer. Our first visit to beautiful Barbados.

It was everything we hoped it would be and we had a fantastic holiday. Amanda was helpful and informative from the beginning of the booking process through to the end of our stay. The villa was wonderful and exactly as we had imagined it, and we felt very at home and comfortable there. We enjoyed the pool but fell in love with the beach and spent many hours snorkelling and swimming both in the day and often at sunset. The beach club passes were certainly a huge asset. We always like to see and experience as much as possible of wherever we travel to, so enjoyed many a reggae bus ride (!), a great catamaran cruise, some water sports including a surfing lesson for our son in the south, cooking some of the local fish and making our version of a Bajan curry and "Paella" in the well equipped kitchen, and experiencing the sensory overload on a night out to Oistins! We were also very privileged (with out really realising it beforehand) to be there for the Kadooment Day of the Cropover Festival, and loved getting into the atmosphere and celebrations along the streets with the locals.

Wilma the housekeeper was wonderful - helpful, warm and charming, as were all the people we met there.

Thanks again Amanda, and for making the booking and arrangements for the holiday very easy.

We really hope we can return one day.
