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.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic break at Richard and Wendy's lovely property. It's very well located being near to wonderful beaches and restaurants.

The property is well managed and maintained with everything being provided saving you from having to buy dishwasher tablets. washing up liquid, etc.

It's very good value which really helps as Barbados is no longer a cheap island - expect to pay central London prices for most things! However, the people and beautiful island make it a price worth paying.

I would recommend this property unreservedly.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you read the reviews and think they are too good to be true, but not in this case. Really a home from home, Rachel and Raphael are also so good they really go beyond the mark. Great location with one of the best beaches within 5 minutes walk.. We had a fantastic 2 week stay, such a good find. Good communication from Wendy and Richard. We have no hesitation in giving this property a 5 star recommendation. Trev and Celia

Having returned from a fabulous holiday in Barbados which was made all the more special by staying at Richard and Wendy's beautiful home, we were met at the airport by Raphael and driven the short journey to our lovely holiday home where we were greeted by Rachael who gave us a detailed tour, which made us feel immediately at home. The house was so well equipped it really was home from home. We spent many a happy hour on the back veranda enjoying a glass of wine and the occasional cool down in the dip pool.

*Richard & Rachael went the extra mile*

I was having difficulty getting tickets for the West Indies v England cricket match at the Kensington Oval so Richard asked Rachael if she could help, needless to say two tickets were waiting for us on our arrival.

We certainly intend to return in the not too distant future.

Excellent Excellent Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

As the title says, excellent, from the initial booking request, dealing with Wendy and Richard to the pre -stay information and arrangements for airport pick up to arrival at the house all was just perfect and totally hassle free, both Rachel and Raphael could not have been more helpful.

The house was absolutely as described and spotlessly clean with everything on hand for a most enjoyable time.

The location was fantastic with the best beach just a few minutes walk away, and local bars close buy.

We had a most wonderful time.

Many thanks to Wendy and Richard.

We shall most definitely recommend to our family and friends and if back in Barbados will book again!

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

This roomy townhouse in a wonderful location makes you feel like you are living in Barbados, not just visiting.

The home has two large bedrooms, each with their own full bathroom. The downstairs open floor plan gives a family plenty of space. 9 Porters Gate has a well equipped kitchen and a lovely outdoor space with a dunking pool. We ate every meal out there. The property manager, Rachel, is always available for all your questions or needs.

The location of 9 Porters Gate is superb. Removed from road noise, it is nice and quiet. A short stroll puts you on the very best beaches of Thw west coast of Barbados. Situated close to Holetown, and not far from Speightstown enables a visitor to sample two authentic towns with wonderful restaurants and stores.

We rented a car which made things convenient but a bus stop and the bottom of the road is very close.

We had a wonderful holiday here and expect to return.

Everything you could need at 9 Porters Gate

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our stay at Porters Gate! The owners were easy to get ahold of via VRBO and planning was great from the start. Their property manager, Rachel (very nice and helpful) met us the night of our arrival and gave us a tour of the home. The owners helped to arrange a driver, Raphael, from the airport whom was waiting for us when we walked out of the airport. His price was reasonable and he was very friendly so we arranged for a ride back as well. The small community of townhomes at Porters was nice and quiet and safe. The kids enjoyed the tennis courts and the community pool. There was plenty of room in the townhome and the open concept living dining kitchen was our favourite place to read, relax and eat our meals with the big French doors open to the lovely back yard. We also enjoyed watching the hummingbirds while enjoying our morning coffee. The location to Holetown was great as was the closeness Gibbes our favourite beach. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and we ate all meals except for two at home with grocery stores within a few minutes drive and the fish monger along the same drive. The air conditioning in the bedrooms worked great for comfortable sleeping and it was nice having laundry facilities that we could use. The wifi was better than ours at home! We had a wonderful time and are very thankful that Wendy and Richard allowed us to stay in their Barbados home! Thank you and best wishes
