Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
We love this little villa and try to spend as much time as we can here. We have fitted it out to the specification that we expect when we go on holiday. Nice decor, fluffy towels, quality sheets, CD players, a good selection of current paperbacks and a big hammock to read them it!
There are also playing cards and board games - should you ever get a rainy day. You can do as much or as little as you like from here. The beach at the Royal Pavilion Hotel is a two minute walk away. There is also the gorgeous Mullins bay just a short bus ride away. Here you can hire sun loungers and umbrellas, have lunch at the beach restaurant and even use the spa (booking required).
All water sports are also available here - the paragliding is great fun! This is a really happy place to while away the day. All beaches on the island are public and it is worth taking a trip round to the Atlantic side to see the rugged coast, breaking waves and deserted beaches.

The St James Parish region
The villa is located on the fashionable west coast, and is in the parish of St James. The development of Porters Court is sited opposite the Royal Pavillion Hotel, but away from the main road in a quiet location. This area is well served by buses should you wish to visit the restaurants and shops at Holetown, or the glorious beaches further down the coast at Mullins Bay. We are about 200 yards from the beaches at Glitter Bay and the Royal Pavilion and a 5 minute walk from the Lone Star Restaurant.
At Holetown there is a mall with a good selection of shops including a supermarket, video/DVD rental, bank with ATM machine, cafes, duty free opportunites (take your passport and flight details) as well as local crafts. Dining in the local area is varied from local takeaways to top class international resaurants such as The Lone Star (5 minitutes walk) and The Cliff (15 mins drive). Full details and all our recommendations are in the information pack in the villa.
Long sandy beaches are less then 5 minutes away. All beaches in Barbados are public and have free access. Mullins Beach, a 15 minute drive/bus ride away, is a spectacular white sandy beach where chairs and umbrellas can be hired for the day. Fantastic deserted beaches and bays are to be found on the south and east coast - transport required. Bottom Bay is our favourite - take a picnic.
