“Fabulous villa in a splendid quiet location yet close to the coast and the many excellent restaurants nearby. The villa is beautifully furnished, well equipped and the pool and lovely gardens are well tended. Michael's communcations with us both prior to arrival and during our stay were excellent and the West Coast Villas team, who greeted us on arrival and made various reservations for us, first class. A special mention for Wendy the housekeeper who was friendly and efficient, took very good care of us and even cooked a memorable Bajan meal for us one day! We adored the resident cat Puzzle too, a real character and very friendly.”

With mahogany trees either side Greentails is an oasis of calm 600ft above sea level in St James, the most desirable area of Barbados. It is high enough to enjoy a welcome breeze but is only a mile and a half from the sea. The house is lovely, with an infinity pool and a very big verandah. Holetown is under 10 minutes away. The master bedroom has a great sea view. There are 2 other bedrooms in the main house and another in a cottage just a few feet away. The total area is 5500 sq ft.

“This beautiful Barbados home is what house swappers dream of ! We had a wonderful three weeks at Mike and Jan's villa in St James. Mike was fantastic , supplying us with very detailed information before and on our arrival. He even helped us with recommendations and reservations at restaurants and boat trip. This was a 5 star experience. Recommendations 1. Cliff restaurant , Magnificient setting, book early for "water side" table. 2. Lone Star Restaurant , great beachside fun with the kids 3. Cin Cin Restaurant, 4. Visit the wild Atlantic coast and have lunch in the Atlantis hotel. 5. Water sports at Mullins Beach 6. Swimming with turtles on the " Good Times' Catamaran 7. Beautiful walks up to the old Sugar Mill directly behind the house - greentail monkeys, polo ponies, mongoose, shetland ponies can be spotted 8. Kadooment Festival , ”
“We absolutely adore this beautiful house and had such a wonderful holiday there. The pool is a dream and the whole house is beautifully decorated and tailored. The rooms are white, clean and spa-like. Waking up in the morning and walking out on the terrace or the veranda is a moment in paradise. The owners were wonderful and generous hosts and their guides were fantastic – beautiful restaurants, beaches and walks. As food lovers, we also fully enjoyed the adventure of going to the local fish markets and produce stands to purchase what’s been caught that day and to pick up seasonal produce – then cook in that fabulous kitchen. Everyone we encountered during our stay were very nice. ”
“This is a little slice of paradise. If you can get there you will adore Mike and Jan's home. Wonderful. Louis in Dublin”
“We had a memorable stay in the luxurious house of Mike and Jan on a dream island. The house is absolutely beautiful and has everything you could dream of. Barbados is a magic island with warm sea and many white sand beaches. We did a lot of activities, among them boat trips, snorkeling, scuba diving... Mike and Jan sent us many useful information before our stay. They are fabulous hosts. It was for us a great exchange and we hope to return in the future. We hope they will enjoy their stay in Paris as much as we enjoyed our stay there !”
““We had a really fantastic time at Mike and Jan's magnificent home, it is an absolute gem. The house is beautifully decorated, well appointed with everything that anyone could possibly need. It located in a lovely peaceful spot very close to the incredible beaches on the west coast, a really great location to discover Barbados. The swimming pool is wonderful and the surrounding gardens magnificent. Our stay was greatly enhanced by the very helpful information that Mike and Jan gave us before we left and they continued to keep in touch throughout our stay, always offering helpful tips which made our trip extra special. We highly recommend this beautiful home for a truly memorable holiday.”
