Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing vacation at the Bower Fold villa. We travelled from the UK via Virgin to Barbados and had two glorious weeks on this beautiful island. My Fiancé and I travelled with our 7 month old baby daughter and my Dad and his partner. On arrival to the Porters Court complex of 8 unique villas we were blown away by how well presented the gardens and ground were. Our villa was right near the pool which was a nice touch and encouraged our early morning swims with baby.



The villa was very delightful and well equipped with everything you would need for self catering accommodation. We often ate in and made full use of the BBQ. This little gem was truely home away from home for us. On arrival we were greeted by Veronica who made us feel very welcome. Throughout our stay she ensured all our needs were addressed and she kept the villa nice and tidy for us.



The beautiful beach was only a short walk away. However due to the lack of pavements we found the walk quite hairy with the baby's buggy. So we chose to walk the long way to the beach instead of the back way. Great beach bar called JuJu's where we often had drinks and food.



We chose to hire a car as we wanted to explore the island. Kevin at the management company arranged this for us. We did take the bus to Holetown on a couple of occasions which again was very easy and only $2. Overall we had a lovely holiday and would recommend to all our family and friends. Barbados is the most beautiful island and Bower Fold just complimented its beauty.



We will be back!

Beautiful Barbados

  • 5 of 5

Nice stay in beautiful and very clean villa on Barbados, inside of not so rush villas resort. Relative close to the beach in walk distance and with car or bus (3 bus stops) access to city and to the shops. With beautiful pool just in front.

Debbie is still on contact with customers and all troubles were solve quickly as possible.

Owner's Response: hi Martin, Thank you for your lovely 5 star review. For the people reading, these were Eastern European visitors, they were very charming, and they had a good time. They are explaining how mellow our relocation is...... There was a small problem with the water supply with BWA and the water was off for a few hours - our fabulous agent was on the case quickly and all was resolved...... as they say, our gorgeous pool is right in front of the door and the bus to Holetown is so easy that you dont need a car unless you want.... Thank you for your 5 star review and i am so happy that you had a great time regards Debbie

Excellent villa!

  • 5 of 5

We used this villa as part of a group booking for our wedding and our friends thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The villa is spacious, well presented and well equipped. Its location is great and it is close to beaches and in a short driving distance of shops and the supermarket in Holetown. The pool is a good size and there were plenty of sunbeds to accommodate all of our party. Debbie, the owner, was always easy to contact and helpful when answering any queries we had. The only thing that would have made our stay easier is if Porters Court as a whole complex had a website or the villas were linked in some way online to make it easier to book multiple villas. Overall an excellent stay and would highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Michael, we always work hard to ensure that our guests have a wonderful time but a wedding is a very special event and we are really glad that it all went so well. Everyone remarks on how great our location is and I am happy that you found everything like a "home from home" in our villa - having owned Bower Fold since 2001 when our children were tiny, that is certainly our aim. Please come back and see us again soon :-)

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Barbados and really felt at home at Bowers Fold. The villa was very comfortable and well situated about 1 mile North of Holetown and with great local beaches, bars and restaurants.

Veronica and the maids looked after us well whilst we were there, whilst Sandra was on hand to deal with any queries and sort out a taxi to the airport for our return flight.

Dealing with Debbie, the owner was simple and efficient, and she was very helpful in providing lots of information and answers to our queries.

A truly memorable trip to the Caribbean.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our first trip to the Caribbean. We found the villa to be excellent and just as described in the guides.

The pool is situated right outside the villa door, and the wifi provided also reaches this far. (Very important for my 2 teenage daughters)

There is a private pedestrian entry which takes you right out onto the road by the bus stops. The local reggae busses that seem to arrive every 2 minutes are definitely worth a ride. For just $2.00 you can ride virtually all the way up the exclusive west coast.

I would recommend this villa and the close by Sunti beach bar. If I ever venture back to this part of the world, this is the villa I will use. I also need to make a special mention to Debbie the owner who is brilliant at providing all the information you need about the villa, the area, car hire etc and is extremely conscientious about making your holiday experience a memorable one.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review. We have been renting Bower Fold out for nearly 15 years now and we do pride ourselves on giving the kind of excellent customer service that helps our clients have a lovely vacation. I do suspect that this, combined with our superb mid-West Coast location, is the reason that we have so many repeat visitors. Stephen is right about the buses - car hire is great for touring the north and east coast or the middle of the island, but it is only necessary for a few days when the West Coast bus service is so good - we rarely bother with car hire at all and have a good driver that we recommend for the odd longer trip. I'm so pleased that Stephen and his family had a great time :-)

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This is our sixth time to Barbados but the first time at Bower Fold. Tranquil, clean and everything you would want it to be. The owner Debbie has always been available to communicate with, prior to and after our departure. Right on a bus route although we had a car for the second week. Just looking to see when we could come again!!

Even better second time round!

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Bower Fold and it won't be our last. The villa is in the perfect spot just by the pool (particularly important if you have children you need to keep an eye on whilst they are splashing around) and we made equal use of poolside, veranda and the nearby beach (it really is less than 5 mins walk away).

The property is beautifully maintained, as are all the grounds and well kitted out. We received excellent service & support from all - owner, housekeeper and agent -who all do everything they can to make sure that your holiday and all the arrangements go to plan, such as booking transfers from airport, supermarket deliveries, car hire and restaurant bookings. The villa is within a small gated community which makes it friendly and personal but you are also able to do your own thing. Would also be ideal if you are going as a group and want to take a couple of villas together.

The local beach is beautiful and you can easily access watersports as well as snorkel with the turtles. The villa is also perfectly placed for restaurants - you can walk to the Lone Star and a couple of good beach bars (rum punches on the beach at sundown became part of our routine!) or hop on one of the many local buses that travel up and down the main road (but don't worry - the villa is back from the road so traffic noise is not a problem) and get easily to Holetown, Bridgetown and Speightstown. We cooked in a couple of nights and had excellent meals at The FishPot, Carriba, The Beach House and The Lone Star. Will return to all of those.

Would recommend hiring a car - we had great fun travelling across the island in a mini moke - the northern & eastern coasts are dramatic and the beach by The Crane Hotel is also worth a visit.

This villa was recommended to us and we would not hesitate to recommend to others. We are already planning our return!
