The villa is on the beautiful Royal Westmoreland golf resort in the community of Forest Hills. There are 2 swimming pools close by - one for the sole use of Forest Hills residents. However, there is a plunge pool in the private courtyard with jacuzzi jets! This villa is larger than other Forest Hills properties having been extended to incorporate a wrap around terrace leading off the lounge offering superb elevated views, particularly of the 10th fairway from the side terrace, and distant views of the sea from the main terrace. The villa is not overlooked at all, thus offering complete privacy. Internet is connected as well as iPod Dock, Sonos to lounge and cottage and flatscreen TVs in the lounge and also the cottage. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in the cottage as well as a small fridge. A welcome pack can be found in the kitchen upon arrival. Superior quality high thread count cotton bedlinen is provided in all bedrooms as well as a built in safe in each of the 3 bedrooms for valuables. A hairdryer is also to be found in each bedroom. There is private parking at the villa for 2 cars. Car hire is recommended.

About Jackie Fortune
We have returned to the UK after 14 years living in Dubai. When we visited Royal Westmoreland for a holiday several times in the past, we decided to buy a property. We think that 5 Forest Hills has some of the best views of any house on the course!!
Jackie Fortune purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Jackie Fortune chose St James
Royal Westmoreland offers an exquisite place to relax in beautiful surroundings. There are swimming pools, gym, tennis courts and access to the private beach club & spa at Mullins which also has a very good restaurant. For golfers, the course is one of the best and is suitable for all handicaps. The clubhouse and "Rum Shack" both provide on-site places to enjoy a meal or a drink. Royal Westmoreland is on the west coast of Barbados also known as the "platinum coast" for its excellent beaches and first class restaurants.
What makes this Villa unique
Holetown is approx. 5 minutes drive and has a large supermarket, banks, cinema, bars, general shopping and a variety of restaurants for all tastes and budgets. The nearest beach is a 5 minute drive and many other excellent beaches are within a 15-30 minute drive. Horse Racing and polo are available for most of the year. For cricket lovers the world famous Kensington Oval is a 30 minute drive. The annual Holders festival and "crop over" are also well worth attending.

A very spacious, well appointed and well positioned villa. Impeccably clean with a warm, homely feel
The owners clearly have excellent taste and the villa actually feels like someone's home rather than an impersonal shell. The outside living space (covered terrace with great views) is a real winner.
The housekeeper (Cicely) is always on hand and keeps the place spotless.
Clearly it doesn't have its own outdoor swimming pool but there are two communal pools nearby. So the villa itself is more one to live in than to worship the sun in.
If we were to return to Royal Westmoreland we wouldn't hesitate to stay at Premier Cru.
Thank you so much for your very kind review. It helps us enormously to know that we are getting it right with regard to our villa in Royal Westmoreland. When we first rented I walked from room to room imagining what I would look to have in a rental. Would love to have you stay with us again should you venture back to Barbados some time in the future.
a dream come true
Have just spent the best 11 days of our lives at this amazing villa. Firstly the resort it self is stunning facilities food and service all 5 star. But it was the villa which blew our mind. We arrived late at night after being delayed and thought wow. But when we awoke the following morning and opened the doors on the balcony well this just took it to a whole new level. We have stayed at hotels before on the south coast and west
coast but nothing has come close to this. The whole villa including the cottage is superb. You are very close to all the resort pools restaurants bars tennis courts. No more than a few minutes walk to any of them. The house maid cicely was charming and could not do enough to make our stay as relaxing as possible. She even organised a chef for us called kirk who was first class. Thank you very much we will most definitely come back very soon.
We went back to Barbados for our fourth time this year. Previously we have stayed in hotels along the West Coast but decided as we were a party of six to try a villa for this trip. We were not disappointed at all, "WOW" was our first impression as we were greeted by the Villas maid. A breathtakingly beautiful villa which has a bright and airy feel. Each room is beautifully decorated and equipped to the highest standard with everything you need. The position of the villa makes it very private and quiet with far reaching views out to the coast. The maid was a delight, she made us feel so welcome and took care of all the daily chores you want to avoid on holiday! Forest Hill pool is 5 minutes walk from the villa as is the Rum Hut which we made good use of! Staying at Forest Hill gives you access to Mullins beach a 10 minute drive away. The friendly staff at the Mullins beach club always took great care of us always giving us front row sun loungers . We are regular travellers who like top class accommodation whilst away, Premier Cru did not let us down, a must for anyone looking to visit Barbados.
Perfect Location, beautiful villa
This is our fourth stay on Forest Hills, but our first at Premier Cru and we are converts. The villa has, quite unusually for Forest Hills, a very private entrance and courtyard and feels a little bigger than comparable properties. We love the fact that the balcony is more of an 'outdoor living space' than a 'balcony' and the views from the wrap around balconies are stunning. The villa is unbelievably peaceful with the just the sound of birds, breeze in the trees and the occasional thwack of a golf ball. The furnishings are comfortable, modern and complimented by local art. The housekeeper was also lovely, finding a perfect balance between friendly and allowing us our privacy and keeps the villa spotlessly clean. We are not golfers but enjoy the facilities offered by Royal Westmoreland notwithstanding, and the gold course setting makes for a gorgeous open aspect for both the villa and the surroundings. The beach club down on Mullins is a real plus and we made full use of that as guests of Premier Cru. Holetown is just a five minute drive away with a brilliant choice of restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend Royal Westmoreland generally but, in our experience, this villa is one of the best options.
Thank you for your kind review about our villa. We love the location of Premier Cru that naturally, through its uninterrupted views and position, lends itself to making us and our guests feel relaxed and at home. We appreciate your comments about our housekeeper and will pass these on.
Once again, we are so glad you had a happy vacation with us and hope to see you again at our villa in the near future.
