Overview

Porters Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Number One Porters Court is a Barbados rental with a touch of luxury, its high ceilings of traditional 'pickled pine' offers two en-suite bedrooms that can be made up into either twin or double beds with crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets.

It is part of an exclusive development of eight Chattel style villas nestled around a swimming pool in secure tropical gardens. The exotic planting is representative of the Caribbean and Barbados.

Our Bajan villa is tucked away in a quiet corner surrounded by a tropical garden with the swimming pool conveniently near in the centre of the development. Although it's a holiday rental, it's a home away from home, comfortable and relaxing.

We take great care to consider all your needs and prefer to have children over the age of seven. It is an ideal place for more than one family to take over several villas and if there is a special occassion such as Wedding, Birthday, Anniversay, we can organise for other villa owners to join in sharing with you, their villas. Please enquire using email connection below.

We can also organise Meet and Greet at airport, Taxi from/to airport, Welcome Food Pack, Hire Car. We keep a manual at the villa with all the restaurant phone numbers, and advice from Doctors to Shopping to where to find what in the Villa and how to contact anyone if you are in need of anything. We try to ensure you have a brilliant time without any hassle. Please go to our link for extra information.

About Caroline Fleming

Barbados feels like home to us, we have enjoyed many happy holidays and when the children were young we felt safe on this wonderful Island. The beaches are clean and the water is crystal clear, so many fishes to see just off the shore the kids loved it. Along with friendly locals and excellent food choices this makes Barbados a great place to relax and enjoy life.

Caroline Fleming purchased this villa in 2002

Why Caroline Fleming chose Porters

We always dreamed of owning a property on Barbados and now the dream is a reality. It was important to us to keep in with the local style of the island and when we found this chattel style villa we fell in love. Establishes tropical plants a verandah to breakfast dine on and even a hammock. The pool is close by for that morning dip . Plenty of loungers and umbrellas to keep off the midday sun. We think it's perfect and we hope you will too!

What makes this villa unique

4 mins from one of the best Beaches on the island. Private and quiet. Spacious and comfy beds. Secure gated community and gardener and maid to assist your needs. A member from our management team will meet you on arrival and show you around. Bus stop very close. AC & ceiling fans.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Porters Court for 3 weeks in November 2014. This was the second stay at No.1 for the 4 of us (2 married couples) and hopefully it won't be our last. If you are looking for a truly relaxing holiday, this is for you. Because it is such a small complex, the pool was never busy, in fact most days we felt as though it was our own private pool. We also understand that the whole pool area is about to be updated, so will be interested to see how they improve it. No.1 has recently changed hands and we see from photographs taken of the property since our visit, that the new owners Caroline and Ian have already put their personal touch on the property with lovely new soft furnishings. Sandra, who worked for the local managing agents, looked after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble. We only had to mention small problems and they were sorted within hours. She is a great character and always so cheerful and obviously very experienced in this field. Keri-Ann, the cleaner, kept the place spotless and was always so pleasant and helpful, to the extent that when it was raining heavily one day, she drove us to the restaurant we had booked for my husband's birthday and then picked us up later - that's real service! There is nothing that I can think of that No.1 doesn't provide. It's like home from home, everything you use at home, you will find there. The 2 spacious en suite bedrooms were ideal for us, with plenty of space in the living areas so that we never felt we were falling over each other. There are plenty of top quality restaurants within a short bus ride, not to mention a selection of beaçh cafe/restaurants within a short walking distance. Over all, although after the first week we thought we had probably 'done' Barbados, by the end of the holiday we were all talking of going back, so what better recommendation.

One Porters Court

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Number One Porters Court from July 7 to July 20 2013 and loved it! The house is beautifully furnished with everything I could ever need-just like home. Very clean, lots of closet space and very very comfortable beds-no skimping here! Books full of info on what to do, where to eat, shop etc....a pleasure to be there. Nice one level living with a beautiful veranda surrounded by nice tropical plants. Private but not if you want to mingle with others. Great time walking around area meeting locals and "yellow" "fun" buses to everywhere was a great choice-very easy from the house location to get around. Very Helpful keri-Ann, and Sandy of West Coast Villas (she set up all our tours) is an added bonus.

We have rented privately before and it has never been this easy. Everything from start to finish went smooth. We appreciate the availability of getting a starter food pack and transport arrangements + all the info sheets around the house and everything being clearly labelled, ie light switches, etc. Its the little things that matter!

It was the prefect choice for me, my husband and our son. Thanks so much for a lovely vacation!"

Top notch property, Minutes from beach, town, and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your house. Everything was great, from the moment we arrived. The location was ideal, close to beach, town, and great restaurants. We will definitely recommend you to others. The house was outfitted beautifully. Thanks for thinking of everything anyone could possibly need on holiday. Best, Megan

Peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

For our first time in Barbados, #1 Porters Court was an excellent choice. The reservation process was easy, the villa was easy to find and the location was perfect for us. The villa is spacious and is very well kept. The bus stop is very close and provides easy transportation options. The beach is nice and close and is arguably one of the better beaches on the west side.

Superbly equipped and comfortable accommodation a short bus ride from the centre of Holetown.

  • 5 of 5

This is our first visit to Barbados (it won't be our last!!). The House is about 30 minutes walk north of Holetown. There is a good bus service, but I would recommend hiring a car if you don’t just want a lazy beach holiday in a quiet location. We have had some disappointments in the past when we have booked private properties, but everything here was superb. Well maintained, clean, comfortable and well equipped.

The location is ideal for exploring the island.

The Lonestar restaurant is well worth a visit, but It does come at a price being one of the best around.

I am reluctant to recommend Porters Court too highly, as I want to go back and would be absolutely distraught if it was unavailable.

Enjoyed 2 beautiful weeks in August '08 at Porters Court. The villa was perfect for a family or a couple, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The location was ideal, quiet and yet close to the beach, restaurants and Holetown. We'll never forget sunsets at JuJu's Beach Bar. We'll be back !

We truly enjoyed staying at your villa last week. It was perfect for the two of us. The extra touches, with the flowers and food starter pack, were much appreciated. The next time we come to Barbados we'll definitely contact you again.

It was very quiet and private, and we enjoyed the swimming pool every day. Driving on the left side of those narrow roads took a little getting used to.

One minor disappointment: no broadband internet was available, but we made arrangements for local dial-up service for the week.

Thank you so much for helping make our honeymoon an enjoyable and memorable trip.
