About the property

Beautiful villa in small exclusive complex, 2 spacious bedrooms with en-suites

Located one mile north of Holetown, opposite the Royal Pavilion Hotel, on the popular West Coast and close to glorious beaches (200m) and within easy reach of a wide selection of shops, bars and fine restaurants. 5 Porters Court is a luxury 2 bedroom with en-suite bathroom villa with wrap around veranda, spacious open plan living area, well equipped fitted kitchen and private car parking adjacent to the villa. The charming villa is built in traditional chattel house design with high pickled pine ceilings. The living area has two sets of French doors opening onto a wrap around veranda (with BBQ) for outside dining and relaxing. The villa is air conditioned throughout.

Porters Court is an exclusive gated development of 8 luxury villas with a communal swimming pool and patio area with sun loungers and umbrellas. The villas are set within beautiful well-maintained tropical gardens. No. 5 has a great location right by the pool.

The villa comes with membership of the exclusive Fairmont Royal Pavilion Beach Club, a five minute walk from the property. This gives guests free access to sun beds and umbrellas and use of the beach bar and water sports facilities at your own expense. The famous Lonestar restaurant is also about a 5 minute walk as are two great beach bars.

Our housekeeper will visit three days per week. We provide all guests with a complimentary welcome grocery pack of tea, coffee, orange juice, milk, eggs, bread, butter, fruit, beer and wine so you can relax immediately and enjoy your holiday. Our on-island property manager is always available to help. We can also arrange airport transfers and organise car hire.

About Mrs Tracy Palmer

Last year we realised our dream of owning our own property in Barbados. Since then we have spent time making it a comfortable home from home in paradise. We live in the UK and aim to spend as much time as we can in our second home. We hope to share it with you!

Mrs Tracy Palmer purchased this villa in 2017

Why Mrs Tracy Palmer chose Porters

We fell in love with Porters Court because of the charm of the villa which is built in the traditional chattel house style with wooden floors and high pickled wood ceilings. We also enjoy being very close to the Lonestar restaurant and JuJu's beach bar, two of our favourite places for sunset drinks on the beach!

What makes this villa unique

The location is perfect and just across the road from the Fairmont Royal Pavilion where we enjoy the beach club. It is very easy to get around as the bus stops are just outside the gate and US$ 1 will take you anywhere on the island. Although we have such a convenient location there is no road noise at the villa.

A fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful find on the West Coast of Barbados .

Tracey the owner made sure everything we could need was accommodated for us .

Welcome pack on arrival . All our questions answered promptly .

You can tell that Tracey has done the Villa as her home , it is the nicest place I have ever stayed in .

The Villa is set within a gated community , with beautiful gardens .

5 Porters Court is right next to the pool , with a sitting out area .

This was our favourite place to sit for evening drinks .

Membership to the Fairmont beach club was one thing that swayed me to rent this villa .

The beach club is fantastic , set on our favourite beach in Barbados .

Ju ju’s was my partners favourite place for rum punches .

There are some fantastic restaurants around , LoneStar , The Tides , Fusion , Nishi, fishpot .

We hired a car and travelled round the island , lots of great things to see .

My teenagers favourite day was swimming with turtles , which again Tracey recommended .

Veronica the housekeeper was lovely and made sure if we needed anything it was sorted .

There is no doubt we will return to Barbados and definitely to 5 Porters Court .

Many thanks to Tracey for her help and the loan of her beautiful home .

Sarah , Alister , Eloise and Emilia .

It was a Home Away from Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional experience! Owner was attentive throughout. Welcomed us prior to arrival, checked on us during and followed up after trip. Her personal touch and attention were greatly appreciated. Arrived to a fridge stocked with eggs, wine, beer and other essentials. Housekeeper was very welcoming and helpful. The house was impecable! The decor was gorgeous and attention paid to details which gave it that "island" feel. We definitely plan to go back.

Thanks for contributing to an amazing trip.

5 Porters Court

  • 5 of 5

I cannot thank all of the people involved with our vacation enough. Tracy promptly responded to all of our questions and goes out of her way to make your visit even more pleasant. In all my years of renting, I’ve never come across an owner providing staples so that when you arrive at the villa after a long day of travel, you don’t have to rush to the supermarket until you get settled. The house itself is immaculate and Veronica is a gem of the island with her cheery welcoming attitude. We considered ourselves very lucky to have beach passes for chairs and umbrellas after a pleasant short walk to the beach. If your are scrolling through rentals to find the perfect one, this is it. Our vacation was one of our best ever due to our stay at 5 Porters Court and the hospitality shown to its guests.

Holiday of a live time.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a two week holiday staying in the villa 5 Porters Court.

The villa is spacious and very tastefully decorated. It has a great outside space for dining and barbecuing. The swimming pool is clean and quiet during our stay. The grounds are very pretty and well maintained. The location of the villa is fabulous just a five minute walk to the beach, access passes are included during your stay for sun beds and beach bar.

Tracy the owner was particularly helpful during the booking experience and provides a lot of information at the villa to maximise your stay.

Barbados was a fantastic place to holiday, we will definitely return and we will definitely stay at Tracy’s villa again.

Fabulous location in a lovely villa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa was well appointed with an equipped kitchen meaning we could self cater when required; lovely furnishings in the lounge and bedrooms; and a cosy outdoor dining area where we ate all our meals.

The beach was a short walk away where we had access to the Beach Club, meaning we never had to fight over sun beds! The stretch of beach at Alleyne’s Bay was beautiful and calm, with a choice of water sports and restaurants, or just for swimming in the gorgeous sea. Buses to Holetown were right on our doorstep and quite an experience, with a large supermarket in Holetown. Overall a fantastic villa and we would definitely return.
