Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing vacation at the Bower Fold villa. We travelled from the UK via Virgin to Barbados and had two glorious weeks on this beautiful island. My Fiancé and I travelled with our 7 month old baby daughter and my Dad and his partner. On arrival to the Porters Court complex of 8 unique villas we were blown away by how well presented the gardens and ground were. Our villa was right near the pool which was a nice touch and encouraged our early morning swims with baby.



The villa was very delightful and well equipped with everything you would need for self catering accommodation. We often ate in and made full use of the BBQ. This little gem was truely home away from home for us. On arrival we were greeted by Veronica who made us feel very welcome. Throughout our stay she ensured all our needs were addressed and she kept the villa nice and tidy for us.



The beautiful beach was only a short walk away. However due to the lack of pavements we found the walk quite hairy with the baby's buggy. So we chose to walk the long way to the beach instead of the back way. Great beach bar called JuJu's where we often had drinks and food.



We chose to hire a car as we wanted to explore the island. Kevin at the management company arranged this for us. We did take the bus to Holetown on a couple of occasions which again was very easy and only $2. Overall we had a lovely holiday and would recommend to all our family and friends. Barbados is the most beautiful island and Bower Fold just complimented its beauty.



We will be back!

Even better second time round!

  • 5 of 5
Our second visit to Bower Fold and it won't be our last. The villa is in the perfect spot just by the pool (particularly important if you have children you need to keep an eye on whilst they are splashing around) and we made equal use of poolside, veranda and the nearby beach (it really is less than 5 mins walk away).

The property is beautifully maintained, as are all the grounds and well kitted out. We received excellent service & support from all - owner, housekeeper and agent -who all do everything they can to make sure that your holiday and all the arrangements go to plan, such as booking transfers from airport, supermarket deliveries, car hire and restaurant bookings. The villa is within a small gated community which makes it friendly and personal but you are also able to do your own thing. Would also be ideal if you are going as a group and want to take a couple of villas together.

The local beach is beautiful and you can easily access watersports as well as snorkel with the turtles. The villa is also perfectly placed for restaurants - you can walk to the Lone Star and a couple of good beach bars (rum punches on the beach at sundown became part of our routine!) or hop on one of the many local buses that travel up and down the main road (but don't worry - the villa is back from the road so traffic noise is not a problem) and get easily to Holetown, Bridgetown and Speightstown. We cooked in a couple of nights and had excellent meals at The FishPot, Carriba, The Beach House and The Lone Star. Will return to all of those.

Would recommend hiring a car - we had great fun travelling across the island in a mini moke - the northern & eastern coasts are dramatic and the beach by The Crane Hotel is also worth a visit.

This villa was recommended to us and we would not hesitate to recommend to others. We are already planning our return!

Relaxing week in Barbados

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a great week at Bower Fold No. 6 in Porters Court, Barbados.

Easy to book, great information supplied by Debbie through e-mails and on-site at the unit. We were greeted by Lee-Ann on arrival and in touch with Kevin who was easily accessible and very helpful throughout the week.

All four of us walked over to the beach every morning, had lunch there and returned to the villa mid-afternoon to relax by the pool and chat with a few other guests.

We are very pleased with our stay, the unit is functional and impeccable. We used the buses to go to Bridgetown one day and Holetown to do the groceries or to to to restaurants in the evening.

Make sure you tour the island, there are beautiful views from the hilltops and the east coast is really worth seeing, the people of Barbados are just great.

Merci, from Canada

Owner's Response: We are delighted to receive Jean's kind words about their great holiday. The client before them was a family on their fifth visit to us, and we are always pleased to hear that our clients love Bower Fold and its fantastic location and want to return to us.
We do pride ourselves on our great customer service in the run up to the holiday, helping people organise everything that they need for the perfect stay, and once there our lovely housekeeper looks after people really well.
It is certainly true that the fabulous beach opposite us is really convenient and it is often nice to end the day around the pool having a quiet sociable cocktail moment with other guests at neighbouring Porters Court villas.

Perfect Winter Break

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have just returned from our first holiday to Barbados and it was marvellous. Bower Fold is perfectly located in a quiet and secure little complex that is just minutes from the main road and all the local amenities (including the beach). Holetown is a mere 5 mins away by bus (depending on the speed of the driver!!) and the buses pass through every couple of minutes. The accommocation is very very clean, comfortable and everything is provided. Veronica, the housekeeper, is always available as is Kevin, the local agent. Along with the owner, they made our trip so easy. Everything was catered for: restaurant bookings, grocery deliveries, taxis. Especially generous is the provision of a late check out (free of charge) which meant we could enjoy a precious last day on the beach and a late flight home. I hope we get to go back very soon!

Owner's Response: Amanda, I am so pleased that you and your husband had a lovely time with us, so nice in fact that you have booked again with us for next month! Thank you for your nice words, we are glad you find us a relaxing break without the children and hope when the little one gets a bit older that you will be back with her too!
Best wishes

Amazing holiday with everything you need nearby

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with my son & Fiance in October 2011 for an amazing 3 weeks. An absolutely perfect holiday - Even I got a bit teary when it was time to leave. Bower Fold had everything we needed and more. Our arrival was extremely smooth and our ordered groceries were ready for us. Veronica did a fantastic job looking after us as did Denis. My 6 year old son loved the pool which was the perfect depth the whole length & width. Best thing about the pool? It was a mere 5 or 6 steps from our door which meant our son could play confidently. The complex is set back from the road side so traffic noise is not a problem for those of you who like a quiet place to stay. We walked (5 mins at the most) everyday to Ju Ju's beach bar and have some amazing memories. Bower Fold is a perfect base for any family or couple as it is situated pretty much in the middle of the West Coast (5 mins drive to Holetown or 5 mins to Mullins) or within walking distance of some pretty amazing beaches and beach bars. Bower Fold is definatley a perfect place to stay in Paradise !
The transaction process with the owner was very smooth, communication was excellent and we were provided with loads of info prior to arriving (loads in the villa to). If you are lucky enough to stay here then you must head down to Ju Ju's & Ramshacles beach bars. We spent hours at Ju Ju's and the food, drink & service was superb.....and amazing value ! Ramshackles is a little further down past The Lone Star and offers an amazing setting along with good food & company. The same beach has 6 or 7 turtles that are about 50 yards swim from the shoreline ( My son & I spent hours with them) ALL THIS IS PRACTICALLY ON YOUR DOORSTEP ! Alternatively if you want to stay by the pool for the evening then the kitchen has great facilities and there is a barbecue on the terrace.

I must also give a special mention to our Taxi driver Brian. What a guy ! Looked after us the whole 3 weeks and was on time EVERY time. What I like to call "one of the good guys of this world" If he picks you up from the airport then gey his card and use him - VERY trustworthy and friendly. Ask him how he is and he will always reply "I'm Cool" which my son loved :)

Do yourselves a huge favour and try Bower Fold. We had the time of our lives and will definatley return !

Owner's Response: I always get a bit teary when I leave too, and 3 weeks never feels long enough. Actually Claire Gary and Noah originally booked for two weeks and loved it so much that they emailed me to ask to stay an extra week which luckily I was able to do, and I hope to be welcoming them back later this year.

Another fantastic week

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we have stayed at Bower Fold. The first time we came with our two children (then aged 10mths and 2 years). The property was ideal - there were plenty of beach toys for the children, and some toys in the villa also, which let us focus our packing on essentials. My daughter loved hunting for lizards in the well tended (and secure) grounds. Being right next to the pool was perfect for nap times: we could put the kids down for a nap while we had a swim. Obviously you need to keep an eye on the little ones by the pool, but we did not find it a problem.

It was great without the kids too - this time we were able to take advantage of the easy walk to the Lone Star and sample some of the great restauarants further afield.

The villa itself was clean, well equipped and well located.The local beach is easily one of the best on Barbados. Never too busy, and with good swimming. Excellent service from Veronica.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa, particularly for those with young children. We will be back!

Owner's Response: The Lone Star is absolutely one of our favourite restaurants too, it is great to have it just across the road! We do pride ourselves on being child-friendly in our villa facilities and most families with children like our location in front of the pool for the convenience of being able to watch the children from the comfort of our shaded terrace.

Bower Fold ' Great location' family villa

Bower Fold ' Great location' family villa
  • 5 of 5
Home from home, ideal quiet location very secure, 5 min walk to the beautiful beach which provides all sorts of water sports and it is extremely close to transport links to Bridgetown and Speightstown.

We have visited Barbados for many years and to date this is the best accomodation we have rented. It provided all facilities ie washing machine cooker and microwave. It was well suited for my 82 year old mother and my 10 year old daughter who absolutely loved the pool.



Bower Fold is clean and well maintained by the owner Debbie and Veronica the housekeeper

We will definately return to Bower Fold when we are next in Barbados and would highly recommend this villa to anyone/ family planning a vacation in Barbados.

Owner's Response: People always say nice things about lovely Veronica who has worked for us for a number of years. I am always so pleased to get nice remarks like this from people who know Barbados well, not only are they very good judges of villa accommodation and so praise from them is high praise indeed, but we very much value repeat visitors. See you soon Jennifer and thank you!
