Located one mile north of Holetown, opposite the Royal Pavilion Hotel, on the popular West Coast and close to glorious beaches (200m) and within easy reach of a wide selection of shops, bars and fine restaurants. Five Porters Court is a luxury 2 bedroom with en-suite bathroom villa with covered parking, private terrace, spacious open plan living area and well equipped fitted kitchen.
Porters Court is an exclusive secluded gated development of 8 luxury villas with a communal swimming pool and patio area with sun loungers and umbrellas. The Villas are set within well-maintained tropical gardens.
When on holiday I expect great customer service from the booking to the end of my holiday. The attention to detail during the initial booking service was second to none - from welcome pack requirements to whether a car was required. It was excellent, with any questions answered and nothing left to chance. All was catered for just like a holiday should be!
We spent 14 glorious days in Barbados (our second visit in as many years) at this beautiful and well equipped villa. The location is perfect. On the west coast within walking distance of Hole Town and a 2 minute walk of glorious beaches at Alleyne Bay with little and unique beach bars.
The villa is part of a small gated complex of 8 properties. This property is maintained to a high standard in all aspects. The gardens have been thoughtfully landscaped with its individual covered car port.
As you walk into the villa you immediately get that sense of ‘home from home’ feel. The furnishings and décor are of a high standard. The villa was spotless all down to the hard work of the house keeper – Veronica and not forgetting the owners Denise and Andrew!
The lounge and kitchen / dining area were very well equipped with what you would expect to find in a “top end” villa including ceilings fans and air conditioning. The lounge had quality soft furnishings with TV, radio and internet access. The two bedrooms were very comfortable with ceiling fans and individual air conditioning. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, shower and toilet. All the rooms had high ceilings to keep the rooms cool during the hottest of days.
The veranda which overlooks the pool was well equipped with a BBQ and dining table and chairs. Here one can relax and enjoy the ambience of this great island and holiday property.
The pool is of a good size and the decking area has ample sunbeds and shade for relaxing.
The local area is very easy to get around either on foot, car or local buses which are well worth the experience. The amazing restaurants such as Lonestar, Tides and The Cliff are all very close by. The Cliff has to be seen to be believed, a night of perfection! Not forgetting Sandy Lane and Apes hill golf clubs, and Scarlet’s who create a great Mojito.
Everything about the villa was perfect. It was exactly as described, if not better! Overall, a great island, a great location and a fantastic villa. Well worth a visit and we cannot wait to return.
