Great value and location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Porter's Gate. It's off the beaten path and a great place to sit back and relax. Rachel the villa manager is amazing! She met us at the villa on day 1, stopped by one day 2 to make sure everything was ok and even book an amazing catamaran excursion for us. The villa is beginning to look a little worn, but is still a great value for the area and what you get.

Relaxing and enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay in Porters Gate. House accommodated 6 adults very comfortably. House is within 1 mile walking distance to Holetown and within 0.5 mile walking distance to the beach. Pool at the property is a plunge pool, but complex has a shared pool, albeit with a lack of sun loungers - easily resolved with lilos. Property has all amenities needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay in the sun

Great family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Lovely townhouse. In lovely setting. Washing machine door wouldn't open so had to use outside washer. Beach towels provided which was a god send. All in all a great holiday. A massive thank you to Rachel also who was so friendly and helpful.

Our family trip to Barbados ! What a great time!

  • 4 of 5

The location in St. James was GREAT! Right down the street from Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane (aka $8000 per night). Tropical Storm Thomas the week before knocked out power and cable so by the time we arrived we had no tv for the week. The location was nice and secluded and amenities were nice. No radio so be sure to bring some musical entertainment. We did book late but were dissapointed when the dishes and grill were not clean. Take the storm & lack of update out of the equation and it could have gotten an excellent rating. Understand you have to pay to use the electricity. Solar panels heat the water so if you like a hot shower understand that is extra as well as the a/c. Ceiling and floor fans help but understand it is HOTT. 8 days, a/c used only downstairs for 3 days, just used ceiling & floor fans cost $150 USD electric bill. So plan accordingly! We will most definitely be looking to book here again!! and Soon!!! Thanks to the owner and staff.

Beautiful Villa

  • 4 of 5

This was my second time staying at Porter's Gate (different villa first time). I must say how well appointed this Villa is, nice furnishings, very comfy beds,enough pots and pans and dishes.I was so comfy I felt like I was in my own home.Let's not forget Rachel, the agent for the Villa, very nice, I had to call her for an error I made and she was there without protest.I will stay here again in a heartbeat plus the rates here are lower than others and you are not getting crap plus it is very safe and secure.
