LUXURY WEST COAST VILLA - CLOSE TO BEACH WITH SHARED POOL

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Porters - VILLA 7 PORTERS COURT

Charming 2 bedroom 2 en/suite bathroom villa sleeps 4/5, Air Con, Housekeeper

Porters Court is an exclusive development of just 8 villas nestled within landscaped tropical gardens with a communal pool. and accessed via security gates. Villa 7 is a charming interior designed 2 bedroom 2 bathroom detached house built along traditional chattel house design with pickled pine ceilings, hardwood flooring and coral stone rendering. It benefits from air conditioning throughout and has been elegantly furnished to reflect colonial plantation style living whilst providing a pure sense of comfort. The villa is complimented by a covered terrace area ideal for outdoor dining and relaxation. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom includes 2 twin beds. Both bathrooms are en suite. There is an open plan living area with comfortable sofas, small TV, DVD player & music centre and a well equipped kitchen. There is a small utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, and a guest cloakroom. Our housekeeper is available 2.5 days per week. T

Villa 7 at Porters Court s ideally suited to explore the island. It is located on the prestigious West Coast in the parish of St. James. The crystal blue water of the Caribbean sea is just 350 metres away and can be accessed by a path close to the Lone Star Restaurant. There is also the beach and an excellent restaurant at Mullins Bay which is a short ride away - and for watersports fanatics there is plenty of opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities including diving, snorkelling and waterskiing on both.

If you can bear to leave the beach, Holetown is just half a mile to the south. Here you will find a well stocked supermarket, banks, coffee shops, a small branch of Cave Shepherd selling duty free goods, and even a business centre. Pay a visit to the Chattel House Village - a small collection of beautiful chattel-styled shops selling jewellery, swimwear, t-shirts and every type of souvenir imaginable.

Holetown also has some wonderful restaurants - many of which have tables overlooking the sea - such as Tides, Zaccios and the Beach Club. If you drive a little further along the coast past Holetown, you will find yet more wonderful restaurants such as Daphnes or The Cliff - one of the most acclaimed restaurants in the world.

Nearer to home you could sample the delights of the famous Lone Star Restaurant for lunch or dinner - just a five minute walk , or visit the beachfront restaurant at the luxurious Royal Pavillion Hotel - just two minutes away. This is an excellent choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner - offering superb food and a first class service.

Further afield, Bridgetown, the capital is about a 30 minute drive south along the stunning coastal road. It is a lively, bustling down - and well worth a visit.

For the golf enthusiasts, Porters Court is a 5-minute drive away from the Royal Westmoreland Golf Course and a 10-minute drive from the Sandy Lane Golf Course - two of the finest golf courses in the Caribbean.

It is not essential to hire a car during your stay. There is an excellent bus service along the West Coast and you can easily pick up one of the fast and frequent buses to get around. Taxis are in plentiful supply too. However if you like your independence and really want to explore the island at your leisure car hire is easily available through companies such as Stoutes Car Rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We just got back from sunny Barbados last night and had a relaxing 10 days again staying at your delightful villa. The plans went very smoothly and I really appreciated you calling me when we arrived and later on to check we were settled in.



Keri Ann very kindly had the villa ready for us - and it feels like our "second home". I gather a lot of other visitors tell you that - but it is so true.



You have the place so very well appointed and so very comfortable. We sleep so well as the bed is really comfortable.



We now find we can go there with less luggage as all our needs are met. The pool was great and we usually swam there every afternoon after our day on the beach.



We love Holetown and all it has to offer. The restaurants are very good and we like to try a new one each time - but we also do a lot of our own cooking as we get fresh fish from the Weston Fish market.



We would really liketo book the villa again for 10 days - as we like to plan our vacations well ahead.... and again thanks for having us back this past week.

LOVELY HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
We were delighted with our choice of Porters Lodge for our holiday. The villa itself is superb and had everything we wanted. We needed a relaxing holiday and this was an ideal place to do just that! We spent a lot of time on the verandah and it was a joy to have breakfast outside.
We used the local buses a lot and the bus stops just outside the property were very convenient.
We went out for lunch and dinner everyday, so by the end of our stay we had eaten at most of the restaurants on the West Coast! (Tides is our favourite - even better than The Cliff).
We certainly hope to be back at Porters again and would highly recommend it.

GREAT VILLA IN A BEAUTIFUL SETTING!

  • 5 out of 5
Just come back from a wonderful 2 week holiday with my husband and 22 months old daughter.
We had the most wonderful time in Barbados and are already looking forward to coming back.
From the moment we arrived and I laid down it the hammock on the veranda I felt relaxed and this relaxing feeling didn't go away for 2 weeks.
The villa is beautiful and really well equipped which was great for a stay with toddler.
The airconditioning, fan and high ceilings kept it nice and cool inside.
It's less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and both the Royal Pavilion and Lone Star restaurant are both about 5 minutes walk away too and serve lovely food and drinks. ( both provide high chairs too ).
Lots of other gorgeous beaches are only a short drive or bus ride away.
I would highly recommend staying here and look forward to returning.

FUN IN THE SUN

  • 5 out of 5
Villa 7 is perfect haven for a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable vacation. The pool and grounds are very well laid out. The booking experience was incredible, rapid responses and all questions answered completely which enhanced the anticipation of the holiday. The Villa is very comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed and Keri-Ann is a great source of local knowledge as well as a delight to have around. The location is fantastic, just a short walk to a great beach, fabulous for swimming and relaxing as well as wonderful sunsets each day. Also close to all shops and restaurants and the local bus service is an experience not to be missed and many North American major cities could learn much from the efficiency of the service. Barbados is great, so much to see and do for all ages. We will be back and thank you Mary for such an incredible vacation.

DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

  • 5 out of 5
This is the second time that we have stayed at Porters Court but the first time at Villa 7. Our previous holiday had been fantastic and we had hoped to stay in the same villa this time, unfortunately it was already booked. We were a little anxious that the new villa might not compare as favourably as the previous one that we had fallen in love with back in August.

Well we struck lucky again!

Villa 7 itself cannot be faulted. It has been thoughtfully equipped and is very well maintained. On arrival we were met by Keri-Ann, the housekeeper. She is an absolute delight and obviously takes a great deal of pride in looking after the villa; it was spotless on our arrival and she looked after us beautifully for the duration of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble.

Porters Court is a small, secure development of just 8 villas, with a shared pool. The West Coast location is fabulous; it feels as though you are in a lovely private spot yet have easy pedestrian access to a beautiful beach and are not too far from either Holetown or Speightstown. Denny ensures that the gardens and pool are immaculately maintained.

There are lots of great restaurants within easy reach, to suit all budgets. You can find small supermarkets in Holetown and Speightstown, and a big Super Centre supermarket at Warrens (on the way from the airport) but you don't need to do a shop straight away as Mary the owner will kindly organise a generous welcome pack on arrival. My daughter celebrated her birthday whilst we were there and we made use of the bbq on more than one occasion! For fresh fish go to Weston Fish Market and speak to Smokey for the best catch of the day, the swordfish was our favouite!

All the beaches on the West Coast are gorgeous, there are just too many to mention but we would recommend Heywards and Folkstone for snokelling, and Paynes Bay is a must for swimming with the turtles.
The island's bus service is excellent (a ride on a reggae bus is not to be missed!) and you certainly don't need to hire a car but it is worth considering to explore the East Coast. Some of the beaches on that side of the island are breathtakingly beautiful and often deserted. I would certainly recommend MAH Car Rentals (they are very reasonable and reliable).

Thank you Mary for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We hope to return to Barbados and would love to stay in Villa 7 again.

FABULOUS PROPERTY

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this property. It is light and airy with efficient air con/ceiling fans. It is very well equipped. Practically everything is provided. Keri-Ann, our housekeeper, was excellent.

The pool is lovely although I should imagine if all 8 properties were fully occupied it might get a bit busy. But the beach is only 5 minutes away (across a busy main road). Holetown is approx 5 -10 mins away on the bus where there are numerous restaurants, shops, a supermarket (selling Waitrose items!?), ATMs and internet cafés.

We hired a car for a few days but used the buses for the rest of the trip. The so called "reggae" buses are good fun. Some of the journeys were nail biting but on the whole we felt safe.

Broadband and a dishwasher would have made the property perfect.

All in all, it is one of best holiday properties that we’ve stayed in.

VILLA 7 PORTERS COURT - PARADISE!!

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you so much for letting us share your piece of paradise - we had such a wonderful time and yes we are planning to visit again. Everything was perfect and Villa 7 is such a comfortable, relaxing villa we all loved it. (All 5 adults!!) My sister-in-law was very comfortable on the put me up. We hired a car and saw quite a lot of the island and used the local yellow buses to go out in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and came back- reluctantly - with a very warm happy feeling.
