Why Caroline Fleming chose St. James

Welcome to Number One Porters Court

One of the largest villas with a through open plan lounge.

Quietly tucked away and not overlooked.

Where you can enjoy a Barbados holiday villa rental in luxury.

Our charming holiday villa in barbados is just three minutes walk from the white Caribbean coral beaches opposite the Royal Pavilion Hotel on the West Coast in the parish of St James.

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.

Number One Porters Court is a Barbados holiday rental with a touch of luxury, its high ceilings of traditional 'pickled pine' offers two King Size en-suite bedrooms that can be made up into twins if required. Cool crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets.

The villa has a desk area with a selection of books, living room with Wifi Cable Tv 56 channels Ipod dock charger, Radio, dining area, and kitchen, or dining on the verandah with roman blinds to add intimacy for alfresco meals.

Our Bajan holiday rental 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.

What makes this villa unique

Porters Court behind the Royal Pavilion Hotel is a stroll from the white coral sands, where our guests will be greeted by the turquoise Caribbean sea. Porters Court is a secure gated complex with eight villas surrounding a shared pool. Ideal for groups wanting to rent neighbouring villas.

The nearby watersports shops along the beach offer everything from snorkeling to deep sea diving, sailing and fishing trips, swimming with the turtles and more. The hotels and restaurants are numerous and nearby, one of the 'in-spots' to eat is at the Lone Star Restaurant. Or, even closer still for an excellent choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner overlooking the sea is the Royal Pavilion itself.

If you walk south along the beaches (all of them are public) you will come to Holetown. Alternatively the nearby bus stop or taxi rank at the Royal Pavilion will take you by road.

Holetown, just half a mile away, is where the first English settlers arrived in 1627. It's a buzzing town with a supermarket, bank, doctors surgeries, post office, police station, internet cafe's, copious restaurants, big screen TV bars for sports enthusiasts, duty free shopping, gym and tennis courts. Full details at the villa.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We absolutely love this villa! This was our third trip and we're already booked to go back for 3 weeks next May, can't wait!

Everything you could possibly want is supplied, excellent quality kitchen equipment for those of us who are mad enough to cook on holiday including coolboxes and freezer packs for days out (or trips to Warrens Super Centre to buy ice cream and chilled Banks beer!) lovely decor, super comfy bed with top quality bedding and loads of towels for the pool or beach. Keri-Ann is a superb and conscientious housekeeper, friendly and helpful. The old car port has been removed...thank goodness, it's now possible to park in the main space (there are 2, unlike other villas in the complex) without making 10 point turns! The super-efficient aircons combined with the ceiling fans mean that rooms are kept at a comfortable temperature and the fact that the villa does not get too much scorching direct sun helps. If you want to be too hot, go and sit by the pool, knowing that you'll come "home" to a cool, relaxing place.

We were treated to a "guest appearance" of a troupe of the green monkeys that are indigenous to Barbados. They just popped over the fence next to the villa and cavorted around for about 40 minutes while we sat spellbound, not wanting to frighten them. Who needs the "Wildlife" Park when the wildlife can come to you?!

A lovely comfortable base in Barbados

  • 4 of 5

The villa was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Ideal for two couples with two en-suites and an outside sitting/eating area. The location of No1 is quiet and tucked away and our only company were lizards, birds and toads!

The property was immaculately clean and Keri-Ann came in 3 times during our 9 night stay to change our linen. The villa is ideally located for the West Coast and is a short drive or bus ride from Holetown or Speightstown. The nearest beach is fabulous (Alleynes Bay) with two bar restaurants (Ju-Ju's and Santi who have fantastic sunbeds for hire at BDS$15)

We can highly recommend this property for a West Coast based holiday.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th stay at Porters Court, and 2nd at No 1. Just a superb home! Quiet, safe and relaxing with all you could want for your stay, but only a short walk from the best beach on the West Coast. Thank you Caroline and Ian. We will be back soon!

Perfect destintion

  • 5 of 5

We are return visitors and that ought to say a lot. Caroline has made Number 1 even better with new verandah furniture, more luscious garden, a wider car port - but has kept the whole flavour relaxing. Keri-Ann, the housekeeper is still the most attentive of housekeepers with detail and perfection at the top of hers and Caroline's list. Locally the beach, which is really only 2 minutes walk away will not disappoint, the Massy supermarket in Holetown is well stocked, restaurants vary in price but all are really good from the Lone Star to our new favourite Pepenero. I would honestly defy anyone to find a way to stay stressed when Number 1 is their Bajan based.

A fantastic place to stay in Barbados!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us (2 couples) spent 3 weeks here in March. This is the 5th time that the four of us have stayed here at 1 and we’ve booked again for next year. Even though we are returning guests we were still greeted by Sandra from the managing agents to ensure that everything is in order and to show us around the villa. There is a good folder explaining everything that you need to know and light switches are clearly labeled.

It’s in a superb location for the beach (a few minutes walk) and a great base to explore the island by car. The villa is in a quiet complex, is well equipped and is kept spotlessly clean by Keri-Ann.

The local buses are great value for short journeys but can get quite crowded.

It’s become our second home to enjoy some winter sunshine, we return year after year, so what more is there to say. Can’t wait for 2016.

So relaxing, you'll want to go again!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hello Jenny We are delighted with your review. Yes the pool never seems busy and is always a peaceful spot to relax. The pool area has new beds and the the pool deck has been refreshed. Thank you for your comments on the furnishings we also just ordered a new patio set and a couple of garden loungers and umbrella for the garden. I'm so looking forward to adding some extra tropical plants and pots to make the garden a lovely place to relax in privacy. We are so lucky with Sandra and Keri-Ann nothing seems to be any trouble. They are more than delighted to help our guests and make their stay as enjoyable as possible. We would be delighted if you decide to visit us again. Caroline & Ian

Perfect paradise home!

  • 5 of 5

This wasn't our first time at number 1, and it definitely won't be our last! The villa is magnificent, elegantly furnished and with a superbly equipped kitchen. We love to cook and there was no feeling, as there often is in rental properties, that the owners had locked away all the "good stuff." Top quality pans and decent knives, three solid chopping boards, (one of the bigger ones doubled as a second tray!) and basic "fixings" like salt, pepper, chilli, coffee etc. The beds made up as a super king are fabulously comfy and the base sheet is actually are big enough to tuck in around 2 x single mattresses, so no waking up being hog-tied by loosened sheets wrapping themselves around your ankles...are you listening Marriott, Hilton, Sheraton and all you other "fancy" hotel groups?! Keri Ann is a magnificent housekeeper. She keeps the villa spotless and welcoming. Sandra, the manager from West Coast Villas, always checks that all is well and reacted promptly when the ceiling fan on the verandah went wonky. Fixed within 3 hours of reporting the fault, and that's impressive for such a laid-back island!

For eating out, we love to "do lunch" when it's not as humid as in the evening. We used to love lunch at the "Tides," but they no longer open for lunch in the "off" season, i.e. any time between May and November. "Cin Cin," "Champers" in Hastings, and "The Fishpot" at Little Good Harbour are our favourites. We advise calling ahead if you'd like a table near the rail by the sea at any of these restaurants. "Just Grillin'" by Sunset Crest is good for food and very relaxed and informal, as is the Beach House opposite.

Caroline and Ian, the new owners of the villa, have recently freshened up the decor and soft furnishings, but the excellent facilities haven't changed.

We thoroughly recommend #1 and the fabulous kitchen may well save you a fortune on eating out!

Owner's Response: Thank you both for taking the time to post a review. We are delighted that you have rebooked your next trip to No1 whilst still on holiday. Our guests comfort and enjoyment is paramount to us and we have taken on board your suggestion that a silicone whisk would prevent scratches to our pans. The villa now has one! We agree that Keri-Ann is a magnificent housekeeper and our management team all work together to cater for all our guests requirements. The restaurants you mention are among our favourites and well worth a visit. Along with many more attractions on this beautiful island. Thanking you Caroline & Ian.
