The spacious ground floor is open plan leading onto a tropical patio with it's own plunge pool. The modern kitchen is ideal for conjuring up those Caribbean culinary delights.

Relax on comfortable sofas and maybe watch DVD's or listen to your favourite track on the ipod dock. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, balcony, dressing room and en suite bathroom with a marble vanity area and a corner bath. The second bedroom has twin beds, balcony and en suite bathroom with a walk in shower and marble vanity unit. The tranquil secure development consists of 28 town houses, has a communal swimming pool and tennis court.

Everything you could need at 9 Porters Gate

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our stay at Porters Gate! The owners were easy to get ahold of via VRBO and planning was great from the start. Their property manager, Rachel (very nice and helpful) met us the night of our arrival and gave us a tour of the home. The owners helped to arrange a driver, Raphael, from the airport whom was waiting for us when we walked out of the airport. His price was reasonable and he was very friendly so we arranged for a ride back as well. The small community of townhomes at Porters was nice and quiet and safe. The kids enjoyed the tennis courts and the community pool. There was plenty of room in the townhome and the open concept living dining kitchen was our favourite place to read, relax and eat our meals with the big French doors open to the lovely back yard. We also enjoyed watching the hummingbirds while enjoying our morning coffee. The location to Holetown was great as was the closeness Gibbes our favourite beach. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and we ate all meals except for two at home with grocery stores within a few minutes drive and the fish monger along the same drive. The air conditioning in the bedrooms worked great for comfortable sleeping and it was nice having laundry facilities that we could use. The wifi was better than ours at home! We had a wonderful time and are very thankful that Wendy and Richard allowed us to stay in their Barbados home! Thank you and best wishes

A Villa With Everything

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a really well-kept complex in a quiet position about 300 yards from the main road. The furnishings, and especially the pictures and knick-knacks, are all in lovely taste and the villa is kept immaculately clean. The patio area with the plunge pool is perfect with colourful shrubs and bushes attracting humming birds, bees and butterflies - it was very peaceful and nicely shaded for most of the day.

I won't describe the facilities and equipment as it's fair to say that I couldn't think of anything that wasn't there, from cool boxes to beach chairs to plug adaptors to glasses of every sort. Brilliant!

The villa is bright, airy and really spacious and was a lovely relaxing place to come back to after a day at the beach or a hard day's shopping.

I really think that you need a car if you stay here. It may be a 10 minute walk to the nearest sea but this is a very thin piece of sand affected by the tides. The nearest 'proper' beach is a 20 minute walk, most of which is alongside the main road. There is a bus stop just at the bottom of the lane from the villa so that is great for trips to Holetown, Bridgetown etc if you don't have a car.

We would really recommend 2 restaurants on the beach about 15 minutes walk north from the villa. Ju Jus is right on the beach and is cheap and cheerful, whereas Lone Star is very classy and beautiful as well as very expensive!

Porters Gate - A Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific 10 days in Barbados at Porters Gate. It was just perfect! We have rented a number of properties over the years and this is by far the best we have ever had.

It was a great base for us and with the hire car saw all of the Island, as well as enjoying the local beaches and JuJu's Beach Bar on a number of occasions.

Porters Gate and the complex was perfect for us and our 2 teenage boys! The location was close to the beach and Hopetown, and as the Island isn't big, we managed to see a lot in our stay!

Thanks again for letting us rent your property! We were delighted with our visit.

Cheers Neil

Home from home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Porters Gate and once again we were not disappointed. The location is perfect as it is only a 10 minute stroll down to the beach, 5 minute drive down in to Holetown, and perfectly located to enjoy peace and tranquility. There are 2 decent size bedrooms both with en-suite, a downstairs WC, large living room and kitchen, air conditioning throughout and to the rear of the property is a small garden with plunge pool which is a real suntrap in the afternoon. We regularly had a couple of monkeys sitting on the roof of the garden shed eating papayas stolen from a neighbours tree on a morning whilst we ate our breakfast. The Porters Gate complex is very secure and all of the residents and holiday makers who live there are very friendly.

It was lovely once again to meet with Rachel who looks after the property during your stay, she is always professional and keen to hear where you have visited during your stay and make suggestions about other trips to take whilst you are there. The house was serviced twice during our 2 week stay and the pool man also visited twice.

Dealing with the owners back in the UK is perfect from original enquiry through to booking through to pre-stay information and then the follow-up on your return are all excellent and I would highly recommend both the owners and their amazing townhouse for that dream holiday in Barbados.

Counting down the days until I return in 2017!

Perfect location and wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented 9 Porters Gate for our recent vacation (3/20/16 to 3/28/16). The property and the location was perfect! Loved that we could slip right out of the back gate and begin the 5 min walk to the beach. There were 4 of us (two teenagers) and it met all of our needs. The girls enjoyed swimming in both pools daily. We rented a car from Brothers Rental - and these guys were great would highly recommend. Rachel the property manager was great as well. Richard and Wendy the owners are very easy to work with and very helpful! The locals are so friendly and eager to help with directions etc.

A must do is a visit to Earthworks Pottery - we made a couple of trips! We visited the east side of the island and the south coast and were happy that we chose this location (quiet and calm seas).

Restaurant Recommendations: Just Grillin, Lemongrass, Spago @ Sugar Hill, Fish Pot, Surfside beach bar, street food (down by sandy lane) was delicious and of course went to the Oistins fish fry.

The beaches were incredible - loved the morning walks. We wanted to take conch shells home but could not find any so we found "Earl" @ the John Moore Bar (on the left heading north towards Speightstown) who is a conch fisherman so we got some from him (great guy).

Thank you for sharing your vacation home - we truly enjoyed our vacation and will definitely come again!

Beautiful Porters Gate

  • 5 of 5

This is the most wonderful, beautifully presented property that I have had the pleasure to stay in whilst in Barbados. It is a true home from home.

In a quiet location but only a ten minute stroll to the wonderful west coast beach and yet only a three minute bus ride into Holetown for fabulous restaurants and shopping.

On the beach look out for Juju,s Beach Bar, rent a bed ( off Freddie, ) tell him I recommended him , relax, drink a rum punch, it doesn't get any better.

Knowing when you return after a hard day you can relax in the private plunge pool, bliss..

If you want somewhere to stay in Barbados, look no further. This is the forth time I have stayed in Richard and Wendy's after renting other properties. I think that says it all

Location

Nearest Airport
35 Miles
Bridgetown
Nearest Beach
800 Metres
Car: recommended

Barbados has near perfect weather, direct flights and old world charm. The townhouse at St James is perfectly positioned minutes from stunning beaches on the West Coast and the shopping amenities at nearby Holetown. Many water sports are available including snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, water-skiing and four fabulous golf courses are in close proximity. Swim in warm crystal clear waters see the turtles or maybe chilll out at a local beach bar. The Lone Star Restaurant, the Ivy of the Caribbean, is two minutes by car and is a fabulous treat for lunch or dinner! Amenities such as banks, bars, supermarket, post-office, medical centre, cyber cafe and duty free shopping are all but a half a mile away. There are many beach front restaurants catering for all budgets lining the palm fringed shoreline. A stop at Second Street in Holetown is a must for those who wish to dance into the small hours.
