Great Location, Lovely Property.

  • 5 of 5

Wendy and Richard are fantastic hosts - extremely helpful communications together with an initial shop by Rachel and airport transfers arranged for us. The house is very well equipped and well located for the beaches and restaurants of St James. The gated complex feels very safe and is pretty quiet - the monkeys passing through the garden and the humming birds were a great attraction! The closest beach wasn’t accessible due to unusually high seas but the very frequent ‘reggae’ busses, running along the bottom of the road, quickly and cheaply delivered us to other beaches - particularly loved East 1.11 Beach Bar in Speightstown. We really enjoyed SeaCat restaurant just along the main road and the Lobster Pot in Speightstown. The races were a great day out as was the Catermaran trip. A great 2 weeks and would recommend this property.

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 weeks at Porters Gate and didn’t want to leave. A spacious well equipped comfortable house in a secure quiet location and a short walk to several beaches. Booking with Wendy and Richard was seamless and we were left to enjoy the property with the very occasional visit by Rachel to check we were okay. We would book this property again given the chance.

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 13th visit to the island and 3rd stay in Porters Gate. Wendy and Richard were very warm and friendly with their responses each time I emailed them. The arranged taxi even offered to stop at the supermarket for us to gather some groceries. Upon arrival we were greeted by Rachel who again was very friendly and nothing was a bother for her. The house is truly beautiful, tastefully decorated throughout and very well equipped. Plenty of space for 2 couples. I have no hesitation in recommending this property, but just don't book for when I'm next there!! Absolutely wonderful place.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic break at Richard and Wendy's lovely property. It's very well located being near to wonderful beaches and restaurants.

The property is well managed and maintained with everything being provided saving you from having to buy dishwasher tablets. washing up liquid, etc.

It's very good value which really helps as Barbados is no longer a cheap island - expect to pay central London prices for most things! However, the people and beautiful island make it a price worth paying.

I would recommend this property unreservedly.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes you read the reviews and think they are too good to be true, but not in this case. Really a home from home, Rachel and Raphael are also so good they really go beyond the mark. Great location with one of the best beaches within 5 minutes walk.. We had a fantastic 2 week stay, such a good find. Good communication from Wendy and Richard. We have no hesitation in giving this property a 5 star recommendation. Trev and Celia

Having returned from a fabulous holiday in Barbados which was made all the more special by staying at Richard and Wendy's beautiful home, we were met at the airport by Raphael and driven the short journey to our lovely holiday home where we were greeted by Rachael who gave us a detailed tour, which made us feel immediately at home. The house was so well equipped it really was home from home. We spent many a happy hour on the back veranda enjoying a glass of wine and the occasional cool down in the dip pool.

*Richard & Rachael went the extra mile*

I was having difficulty getting tickets for the West Indies v England cricket match at the Kensington Oval so Richard asked Rachael if she could help, needless to say two tickets were waiting for us on our arrival.

We certainly intend to return in the not too distant future.

Ann, Dave, Gill and Barry

Nearest Airport
35 Miles
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.
