Don’t just take our word for it, here are what other people have said about Fairways, Forest Hills 3:
Anne S remarked:
Greeted by the lovely house keeper who looked after us throughout our stay. The villa is so well positioned and with the doors open a lovely breeze flows through the house. Breakfast on the outside terrace every morning was perfect. The large supermarket is only 10 mins away and same for the beach. This is our 3rd time here and hopefully we will be back soon.

We spent the first 3 weeks in June at Fairways, and really didn’t want to leave! The villa is perfectly located and has so many advantages; the bedrooms are both huge and en-suite with loads of wardrobe and drawer space (and plenty of hangars). They are both air-conditioned and keep lovely and cool. Upstairs isn’t air-conditioned, but because you are high up on the development, and both ends of the living space have large patio doors which you can open – you get a lovely breeze through. We looked at a couple of other villas on the development while we were there through some friends, and I wouldn’t want any other layout as many are all on one floor which means you wouldn’t want to leave windows open; you would get more insect problems; etc. Fairways works really well. We also rented the cottage for family members which was perfect; a large studio bedroom with kitchenette/fridge/kettle/microwave and a lovely en-suite. Again, loads of wardrobe space. 3 things made this villa perfect for us; firstly, its location is stunning – great views – very private and quiet. Secondly, the villa has everything you could possibly want in it – the kitchen is like being in your own home – and the big American fridge/freezer is so useful. Thirdly (and possibly the best bit) is Genevieve the housekeeper: She is amazing and such a lovely lady. She changes the towels and bed linen constantly; cleans everything so it is all spotless and is just so helpful – and no matter how hot it gets, she sings and smiles all the time. There are loads of great restaurants locally and with the new Massey’s supermarket due to open in Holetown soon (it’s like Waitrose) – it’s easy to cater for yourselves. We regularly bought fresh fruit and veg from the street sellers and just went to the local supermarket (Jordan’s) for other basics. The main pool area of Royal Westmoreland is beautifully maintained with loads of sunbeds/fresh towels etc and the gym is amazing. The shuttle bus to the beach only goes a couple of times a day in low season but as we had a car (driving is really easy on the island) that didn’t bother us. We have been to Barbados many times over many years but have always stopped in a hotel – but never again. We hope to return to Fairways many more times in the future – it really is perfect.

Our stay was glorious. Two weeks in this stunning villa that really did contribute to making our holiday memorable for all the right reasons. We could have lazy mornings on the balcony or by the pool whilst planning what to do in the afternoon. And then come back after cocktails and sunsets on the beach to find Genevieve had worked her magic and the villa was as spotless as when we arrived. The villa was exactly as described and whilst the photos are fantastic they don’t do the property justice. Especially view (you can now see the Caribbean from both sides of the living room as trees have been cleared). There was also a welcome pack of juices, cereals, milk and bread waiting for us on arrival, so having got here at 6pm straight from the airport we didn’t have to worry about breakfast the next morning. The kitchen comes fully equipped so you can do as much catering as you want to with all the gadgets you have at home. There is also a barbecue (buying fish from one of the many local markets is a must). Hundreds of local restaurants, all accessible from the villa, too many to chose from but some that we really enjoyed were: Zaccio’s: Fabulous coconut shrimp and pizzas (and they deliver pizzas too) JuJu’s: Beach bar that does great burgers and wedges Tides: If you want a special meal or are celebrating a special occasion. Round House: About 40 minutes away but the view is spectacular Beach House: A great place for evening dinner Fish Pot: Lovely for lunch but amongst the pricier ones Chilly Moo’s: Ice cream and more ice cream! Mr Delish: Enterprise Beach, he does the most incredible fish nuggets with chilli sauce. A must on every trip to the island. Treetops: The cafe at Earthworks does fabulous Panini and the view is fantastic. Cafe Carizuna: In the Chattel Houses in Holetown. Again, great for wraps and they have free wifi 🙂 I could go on. Closer to home of course the Rum Shak on Royal Westmoreland is just a stroll away and the perfect place for an early family supper and the service is the best we had on the island. If you have small children do go and look for monkeys playing in the trees near the Sanctuary Spa just before the sun sets. ANd if you are really lucky you will see them run across the back garden too. Suffice to say the property exceeds any and all expectations and is highly recommended.
Paul B told us:
This is the second year we have stayed at the Fairways Villa and we have enjoyed every minute. We have now visited the Island for 6 years and have fallen completely in love with the place. The locals are the most welcoming and friendly people you would ever wish to meet. We would like to say a big thank you to Neil and Olivia for allowing us to have this wonderful opportunity and also to Genevieve for making our stay just perfect.
The B family said of their stay:
We have just returned from two idyllic weeks at this property and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The lovely housekeeper Genieveve was there to meet us (despite it being her day off and our flight being delayed) with a big smile and a fabulous supper of chicken salad and coconut pie. She then looked after us everyday, ensuring we didn’t have to worry about a thing. I took four books with me but didn’t read any of them as there as it was just so easy to spend all day staring at the view from the balcony: golfers on the 10th tee, or the Caribbean sea. The description of the property was spot on and everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Even when the tumble drier stopped working Genieveve arranged for maintance to come and look at it, all without us being troubled. The property sits on a lovely quiet spot of the resort yet is within walking distance of the club house, pools, spa and rum shack. Holetown is only five minutes away and has wonderful restaurants and bars right on the beach. And the famous Cliff restaurant is just fifteen minutes away. We would highly recommend this property to friends and would dearly like to return very soon!
