About Richard Cort

We are an English Family who take a pride in our home abroad, but that is what it is a home in the sun. We have fun in Barbados and relax, or chillax!!

Richard Cort purchased this villa in 2007

Why Richard Cort chose St. James

Our villa is in a gated community of only 6 houses and is only 200 meters from the sea. Close by are good bars and great restaurants a plenty. Sophisticated ones and local ones you choose.

What makes this villa unique

There is nothing unique about the villa apart from the family atmosphere. Our children now nearly 30 love the place and we love being with them and our son in law too. Its paradise and we would ask that you leave it as you find it. Tidy smart and relaxed

Guestbook comments from the owner

The owner's home in Barbados is very welcoming – excellent on-the-ground support staff, and a lovely relaxing home-away-from-home. We enjoyed the pool for a quick dunk to cool off in the hot weather, and the fabulous beach is a 5 minute stroll away, as are the local beachside restaurants. The owner was very attentive to our every need and house itself has pretty much everything you are likely to need, including welcome air-conditioning. The villa is in a small gated community, although you may not feel the need for this as the local ambience is friendly and helpful without being in any way intrusive

Fantastic stay on a fantastic island

  • 5 of 5

The property is at the top end of a gated drive. All beautifully laid out and well maintained. It is literally a few hundred metres from the beach - but this does also allow you to escape from all that back to the tranquility of a 'home'.

The layout or the property itself is great. Four bedrooms. Three with en suite and ample space for our family of six. It is clearly a ‘home’ rather than just a holiday rental and we much appreciated the style and comfort this provided. Really pleasant to be able to either sit out on the front veranda or on the side decking next to the welcome plunge-pool - or even a morning cup of tea upstairs on the large balcony!

Had all the amenities (including an appreciated American-style fridge providing ice and chilled water).

We would have no hesitation in recommending 5 Pavilion Grove - and are already pining for the island and the house.

Lovely 3 bedroom all en-suite

  • 5 of 5

Me my Wife and her friend stayed here for six weeks .The Villa was great and the area was private and peace full, also situated quite near Holetown. The owner Richard called us from UK a couple of times to ask if we were ok and if there was anything he could do for us. I cannot fault anything about the Villa apart from at this time of year the mossie's are more prevalent.

Xmas 2010 at St James, Barbados

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with my wife and 3-year old son for 10 nights over Xmas 2010. it is a superb property. It is perfectly located in St.James (the best area of Barbados) and is very well appointed, having it's own small plunge pool and terraces as well as 4 good-sized bedrooms/4 good-quality bathrooms. The property is child friendly but still manages to feel a bit luxurious (a rare blend I think). The fit and finish/ furnishings are all either new or high quality - it feels 'home from home' and the owners have a good sense of quality/style sympathetic to the Barbados way of life. The property also has ipod/dvd/tv/ and even wi-fi if you really need it!

Of particular appeal to me was that the property is on a gated private road (I wasn't concerned about safety as Barbados is very friendly in my experience) but it meant that my son could play outside without fear of busy roads and cars generally.

It is in a great location - only 3-4 mins walk to the beach and there is such a lot to see and do aside from the amazing beaches.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful to us. They know all the best restaurants and places to go and their recommendations were faultless re beaches and places to eat. The owners are very straightforward and nice people to deal with. It made a positive difference to our stay.

We decided to rent a house rather than stay at a hotel as we didn't want to feel obliged to sit on a hotel beach and eat hotel food (that you've already paid for) - we wanted more variety to our trip. The property is just perfect for that. Likewise if you do want to chill out in your own little environment and eat at home you can do that happily too. I'm sure the smeg oven and bbq works well, even if we didn't use them!

We've rented a lot of overseas properties so I didn't want readers to think I'm just a gushing 'first-timer'. I've also done hotel stay in Barbados and more widely in St.Lucia/Antigua etc. Not that this matters but I never like to read reviews from gushing first-timers, to be perfectly honest.

Barbados has everything you could ever want for a holiday, and this property made our Christmas trip 2010 just perfect. We would therefore whole-heartedly recommend staying at this property and would indeed return. Can't fault it. Go for this one.

Sincerely,

NH

A wonderful family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a March school break (Feb-March 2010) from Canada at this wonderful house, with parents, three children and grandmother. It could not have been a better holiday. Upon arrival (1 day late because of snowstorm in N.Y. and missed plane) the housekeeper Sylvia was waiting for us with a smile and the keys. The house was spotless, and very beautifully decorated in cool off-whites with pink and green cushion details indoors. The lounging furniture on the front porch is wicker with blue denim cushions. The bedrooms all a most peaceful white, with reed mats on the wooden floors. The bathrooms are wonderful, and there were tons of towels, plus a pile of beach towels for our use. The kitchen has everything you need, and the owners had left a bit of this and that (sugar, spices, mustard,) in the fridge. We cooked nearly all our meals at home, ate on the front porch, dined out twice, and lunched out twice. The charming "plunge pool" set into the side deck with lots of lounge chairs was a boon for the kids, but also the adults cooled off in it after dinner. The closest beach, Alleynes, a 5 minute walk, also proved to be one of the best snorkeling beaches we saw in our 7 days. Another wonderful beach was at Carlisle Bay, just south of Bridgetown, for there is a shipwreck there, with thousands of fish. We visited the Wildlife Reserve, very interesting, and were happy to keep a few things for "the next time", for we are coming back next year for sure. On Sunday we lucked in to watching a polo match, how Barbadian can you get! Our landlord phoned several times from England to see how we were faring, and that made us feel very cared for. As to Barbados itself: it is the most beautiful island, very clean, and the Bajans are amazingly friendly. We have been to many islands in the Caribbean, and you meet nice and not so nice people everywhere, but here people stop for you to cross the road, greet you on the beach, and generally make you feel very special. A winner!

Car: recommended

Very close to the golden beach at Alleynes Bay & the celebrated Lone Star Beach Bar & Restaurant, known as The Ivy of the Caribbean, less than 3-minutes walk from your front door; as well as Royal Westmorland. The villa is set in a secure gated complex along with 5 others.The local bus stop is very close by. We are opposite the Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel. West Coast situated and only 2miles from Speightstown in between Holetown and Gibbs Beach and within easy reach of Mullins Beach Bar, we are only 8 miles from Bridgetown and 10 miles from Gantley Adams airport. Off Highway 2 at the Sandy Lane exit, through Holetown for 1.5 miles heading North. Nothing on the west coast is too far away.The banking and shopping facilities of Holetown are only a steady 5-minutes drive away. The area of St James is known as the Monaco of the Caribbean with its prestigious properties and glamorous people. The area has an abundance of excellent local & international restaurants but you need to book!

Other Activities: Deep Sea Fishing for Marlin & Tuna

Golf: Royal Westmorland - 2 miles away, advanced booking needed

Sandy Lane Golf and Country Club 3 miles away, advanced booking needed - Excellent Golf & Country Club for lunch & relaxation
