We cannot recommend Port St Charles highly enough. It guarantees a relaxing holiday in superb comfortable surroundings. We have enjoyed having numerous guests in our villa over the last three years and everyone says how wonderful the atmosphere is and how completely at ease they have felt. Barbados is an island of many different aspects, much of it still in the old colonial style, but also much of it now moving forward into its own place. The East coast, wild and rugged, is different again but well worth a visit. And, of course, don't forget the Bajun love of cricket and horse-racing. All of these aspects add to a perfect holiday retreat. We hope, if you choose to stay with us, you will feel equally satisfied with your Caribbean gem.

Relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

OMG! This unit is superb. Everything about both the unit and Port St Charles is meticulous. Resort services and working with Colleen were easy. The unit is truly better in person than in the pictures (I know, how is this possible since the pictures are so beautiful). Enjoy the beauty of Barbados at this unit.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a two week stay in this beautiful apartment. We had everything we could possibly need,it was just perfect. This was our second time staying a port St Charles after staying in other places on the island over the last 12 years and it is by far the best yet. We will definitely be booking again soon, thanks to Colleen and Nick.

Simply amazing. We spent 1 week at the Boathouse in Port St Charles this November. The villa is gorgeous with lovely views, and turtles outside the window! Oh and hummingbirds! The furnishings and décor were lovely and when we got there the staff had filled the fridge and cupboards with food and drinks. How fab is that?

As for PSC. Very impressive. The staff are brilliant (big thanks to Shakira). The lagoon pool was very relaxing, with an honesty bar! And getting the water taxi to the beach was great fun. The beach is fantastic – stunning outlooks, very quiet, great snorkelling and a stones throw from the yacht club. Another place worth a visit for lunch.

Colleen & Nick – thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We’re definitely coming back.
