The living room with A/C is large and very well furnished with comfortable and designer furniture. The Italian kitchen has plenty of plates, pans, glasses, tablecloths - for fantastic cooks and great meals.The patio has real sofas (not uncomfortable garden furniture!) and garden lounge chairs. Housekeeper included, comes once a week (available every day for an extra fee). We can arrange for you to have a car for a very special rate and we can arrange transport for you from the airport to the property. On request, we can also provide drinks and food at your arrival. The car is not necessary because the beach and the shops (1km) can be reached by foot or bus.Anyway Barbados is a fantastic island, with many beautiful beaches, a great capital town and a beautiful countryside so it would be worth it to try to tour around the entire island. Don't forget we're very close to the Folkstone Marine Reserve, the most important coral reef and snorkeling area in Barbados and the best Golf

Our experience was great start to finish. The property owner is organized and responsive. Booking was easy, and she arranged transport to and from the airport for us for a reasonable rate. The property Manager, Raphael, was friendly, available and very helpful. This home is perfect for relaxing. It's clean, quite and safe. Having the plunge pool was fantastic! We felt right at home. Beaches were close, not more than a 10 minute walk in either direction. Bus stop is right at the end of the street as well. Local restaurants are also fantastic. Don't miss the Sea Cat on the way to Holetown.

Nice place but not quite as advertised

  • 3 of 5

The townhouse is as pictured, nice plunge pool, lots of space. Dealing with Alex was very easy. She answered all questions quickly and the booking was easy. We, a group of 4 women, stayed here for 10 nights in Nov-Dec.

But, the master bedroom has a queen sized bed, the whirlpool tub does not work, there is no dishwasher or DVD player.

We had a less than happy welcome on our arrival from Claudia. She left us with a refrigerator that was not working properly ( internal temp of fridge was 18 degs. C), a bedroom safe that did not work, a burnt out light at the front door leaving the entrance in total darkness and snide remarks about the great deal we got so we should not complain. Although she knew we were arriving late and she had waited there for almost 2 hrs.( we were in contact several times by phone) she could have made the house inviting by at least starting the AC in the bedrooms to cool them. Instead we were scolded for being late. Our taxi driver could not find the house with her instructions.

The bright light was Rachel, the community manager. She arranged for the necessary repairs. She got on a ladder and changed the light herself the next day. She brought us shampoo and paper towels ( as listed in the amenities) because Claudia was too busy to come across the island just for that.

The main road is 600 meters from the townhouse, not the beach. The beach with public access is 1.6 kms. away.

If you want to stay somewhere away from it all (including restaurants) this is the place for you. If you want to dip in a plunge pool, this is the place for you. But if you plan to go to the beach each day, look for something in Holetown or the Gap.

Owner's Response: Dear Bonnie, I really apologize for the little problems you're referring. I'm so sorry you had not the expected assistence by the property Manager (Claudia) but she has fired and now, with the new and very efficient Manager, my house is perfect as it always was. As you can see in the former reviews, the house is usually very well maintened and all the guests were always satisfied. The tub and the dishwashers work, all the lights are ok. The nearest beach is around 500 meters, I'm sorry you didn't find the access. I hope you could be my guest again and I hope to meet you in Barbados and have a dinner together offered by me! Thanks for your review, it helped me to change things! Alex

Nice and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the property for 10 nights and loved every minute. The property is a 1.6km walk from Holetown and therefore well situated for all amenities. Lovely comfortable property where we could idle away the hours in the privacy of the garden soaking up the sun.

Alessandra and Claudia were very easy to deal with and helpful with all our queries.

Loved our stay in Porters.

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our tenth holiday in Barbados and our third villa holiday, Arileo surpasses all others.

The location, just up a quiet drive off the main coast road, between Colony Club and Fairmont Royal Pavillion, within easy reach of Holetown and Speightstown in a peaceful, gated, secure small community of 26 villas with a nice size shared pool (which we saw nobody but us use).

The villa itself, as previous reviewers have said, is more stunning than the photographs portray. The furniture and fittings are of high quality and tasteful; this is not your usual basic, bland and hardy rental property with bare minimum everything... It has everything! From soap to cleaning stuffs to towels to pool toys to the biggest jacuzzi I've ever seen to the coolest fridge/freezer! Full complement of plates, cups, glasses, cups, utensils....everything!

The patio gets sun all day until about 3pm and relaxing & dining on the outdoor patio is beautiful.

A real taste of luxury. I cannot recommend this enough.

Alessandra and Claudia, thank you both for making us so welcome. I sincerely hope that we will be able to return.

Just Awesome

  • 5 of 5

As others have said you can only really appreciate this property when you get to it - the photos don't do it justice !!! It has a lovely homely feel with some great decor and instantly makes you feel relaxed, Alessandra and Claudia did a great job !!! Everything is as you would expect it to be - clean and working ! The booking process was easy and Claudia made us feel at ease with the transactions etc.

I can only reiterate what others have said and agree that this is a fabulous place to stay when visIting Barbados - we will undoubtedly return !!!!!!

Porters Gate Community is in the best area of Barbados. Located on the Platinum Coast, between the best Golf Courses: Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland, there are magnificent beaches on the Carribean Sea. You also have the nicest town on the Island - Holetown - around a mile away with a supermarket, banks, post office, 24hr medical service, bars, restaurants, mall and duty free shops.Holetown is only 1km away, has now become the premier town in Barbados, the new "Lime Grove" shopping Pavilion is really incredible! The Porter's Gate community is gated and it has security service, even if Barbados is safe and friendly. You can relax in your small private pool or in the communal area that has a large pool, private tennis court and Gym (under construction) : the property is provided with tennis rackets, snorkel equipment, beach umbrellas and chairs, cooler, toys. Special fares for car rental or beach sports. Enjoy!

Other Activities: The Villa is very close to best beaches on the West Coast - just a short walk - but far from the noisy main road.
