WEST COAST LUXURY TOWNHOUSE MINUTES FROM THE BEACH

Porters House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom Townhouse With Air Conditioning Plunge Pool & Tropical Patio

9 Porters Gate is a new air conditioned town house on the beautiful West Coast of the island minutes from the beach. The spacious ground floor is open plan leading onto a tropical patio with it's own plunge pool. The modern kitchen is ideal for conjuring up those Caribbean culinary delights. Choose to eat at either the breakfast bar or at the dining table or maybe dine outside where you may spot a monkey on the fence or a humming bird hovering at the Hibiscus! Relax on comfortable sofas and maybe watch DVD's or listen to your favourite track on the ipod dock. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, balcony, dressing room and en suite bathroom with a marble vanity area and a corner bath. The second bedroom has twin beds, balcony and en suite bathroom with a walk in shower and marble vanity unit. The tranquil secure development consists of 28 town houses, has a communal swimming pool and tennis court.

Additional Services:: We aim to make your stay on the island as pleasurable and trouble free as possible. To this end our local representative will meet you at the house during your stay and introduce you to the property and it's features. We arrange a once weekly maid / cleaning service with fresh linen provided. Additional staff are available at an additional cost with a cook being a very popular choice! Additional maids' visits can also be arranged along with taxi / car hire should the requirement be needed. A taxi can also be arranged to meet you at the airport if you do not wish to hire a car. Our local representative will discuss any requirements you may have when you arrive and will always be on hand to help with any queries or recommendations you may have. Any additional services you may wish to use will be charged for locally.

A beautiful house for the most wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5
You couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Barbados. The house is beautiful, really stylish interior, spacious and feels like luxury. Each bedroom has an en-suite and the large kitchen / lounge / dining area is all open plan, leading onto a luscious garden with a wonderful plunge pool and pretty flowers. If you're lucky you also see the monkeys stealing mangoes from the tree behind!
The house is within a gorgeous small complex with a communal pool and tennis court, which are so quiet you feel like their your own.
The house is only a 10 minute walk to the beach - and not just any beach. The beaches here feel like paradise, and the water was beautifully clear and calm. There are also plenty of restaurants and shops close by. We had a car which was useful, but there are buses that take you to most places.
Our favourite thing to do was go for an early beach walk and swim and come back to the house for fresh mango and yogurt breakfast in the garden. Then a quick game of tennis before a day of exploring!
If you're planning a holiday to Barbados, you must stay here! It is the most perfect location, a house with everything you need to feel indulged yet comfortable and safe.
I'd also recommend having a rum cocktail at a local bar on the beach whilst watching the sunset, divine!

Number 9 Porters gate

  • 5 of 5
Very clean and exceptionally well equipped. There were cleaning items, travel adapters, beach towels, free wi-fi etc. The property is a 5 minute walk to the bus stop and the beach is a further few minutes.
The owner was really great to liaise with and arranged a taxi to take us from the airport to the property. Highly recommended!

Spring Break in Barbados - an excellent week

  • 5 of 5
For us, first time not staying in a resort. It was so great to have the flexibility and convenience of our own place. 9 Porters Gate is a beautiful home in a very convenient location and the owners really have thought of everything. The whole week was perfect. We went to several great beaches (Mullins Bay, our favorite), surfed, snorkeled, had great dinners from The Cliff (what an amazing place), to a fish fry in Ostiens.. If we were not out or asleep, we were on the beautiful patio enjoying the pool and were even visited by 3 monkeys! Renting a car is a must. Each part of the island is very different from the rest. Barbados is such a unique island. Everyone is friendly and happy to offer information or just a smile and a wave. Not your typical tropical island at all. Owners were easy to deal with and provided exceptional details regarding the house and the island in general. Also, thanks to Rachel (The Property Manager) for all her help. She is certainly a great representative and took great care of us. We'll be back!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with wife and two young children during April 2013. We had an amazing time. The accommodation was just perfect. The plunge pool was just the right size for our 4 and 7 year olds to have fun as well as the us adults to splash around with them. Perfect for cooling down after a long day. If we needed something larger, which was rare, then there is a communal pool in the complex. We made full use of the tennis court too. The local restaurants are amazing too. The beach is just a few minutes walk.

A holiday to remember......

  • 5 of 5
The house is a great location with easy access to the local beaches, Holetown and Speightstown. I recommend going to Ju Ju's for sunset it's a wonderful experience.

The property is very well kept with spacious living areas and good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. The house has been well furnished and is very clean making it feel like a home away from home. There is a security alarm giving peace of mind when out during the day and asleep at night.

The outside area was well kept and the plunge pool was very clean and refreshing after being in the hot sun. We were lucky enough to have some monkeys visit the garden.

We would like to thank Wendy and Richard for a lovely and relaxing holiday, we couldn't have asked for any more.

Secluded Luxury in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday at 9 Porters Gate. The house has everything you could possibly need and so many thoughtful touches.

I'd really recommend having Carolann and her husband come in and cook for you-it was so interesting watching her prep the food while we sipped a beer at the counter and the results were scrum my! We were eating it for a couple of days!

I'd fully recommend a stay here-it's a short walk to some truly spectacular beaches and restaurants. It's worth going here to go to The Cliff and Jujus alone! it was just the two of us and were really enjoyed having the space and some peace and quiet-great stuff!

Barbados has near perfect weather, direct flights and old world charm. The townhouse at St James is perfectly positioned minutes from stunning beaches on the West Coast and the shopping amenities at nearby Holetown. Many water sports are available including snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, water-skiing and four fabulous golf courses are in close proximity. Swim in warm crystal clear waters see the turtles or maybe chilll out at a local beach bar. The Lone Star Restaurant, the Ivy of the Caribbean, is two minutes by car and is a fabulous treat for lunch or dinner! Amenities such as banks, bars, supermarket, post-office, medical centre, cyber cafe and duty free shopping are all but a half a mile away. There are many beach front restaurants catering for all budgets lining the palm fringed shoreline. A stop at Second Street in Holetown is a must for those who wish to dance into the small hours.
