Why Caroline Fleming chose St. James

Welcome to Number One Porters Court

One of the largest villas with a through open plan lounge.

Quietly tucked away and not overlooked.

Where you can enjoy a Barbados holiday villa rental in luxury.

Our charming holiday villa in barbados is just three minutes walk from the white Caribbean coral beaches opposite the Royal Pavilion Hotel on the West Coast in the parish of St James.

It is part of an exclusive development of eight Chattel style villas nestled around a swimming pool in secure tropical gardens. The exotic planting is representative of the Caribbean and Barbados.

Number One Porters Court is a Barbados holiday rental with a touch of luxury, its high ceilings of traditional 'pickled pine' offers two King Size en-suite bedrooms that can be made up into twins if required. Cool crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets.

What makes this villa unique

Porters Court behind the Royal Pavilion Hotel is a stroll from the white coral sands, where our guests will be greeted by the turquoise Caribbean sea. Porters Court is a secure gated complex with eight villas surrounding a shared pool. Ideal for groups wanting to rent neighbouring villas.

The nearby watersports shops along the beach offer everything from snorkeling to deep sea diving, sailing and fishing trips, swimming with the turtles and more. The hotels and restaurants are numerous and nearby, one of the 'in-spots' to eat is at the Lone Star Restaurant. Or, even closer still for an excellent choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner overlooking the sea is the Royal Pavilion itself.

If you walk south along the beaches (all of them are public) you will come to Holetown. Alternatively the nearby bus stop or taxi rank at the Royal Pavilion will take you by road.

Holetown, just half a mile away, is where the first English settlers arrived in 1627. It's a buzzing town with a supermarket, bank, doctors surgeries, post office, police station, internet cafe's, copious restaurants, big screen TV bars for sports enthusiasts, duty free shopping, gym and tennis courts. Full details at the villa.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Barbados brilliant again



Left on Mar 16, 2017 for a stay in Feb 2017

Recently returned from another brilliant self catering holiday in Barbados. Rented 1 Porters Court, a superb two-bedroomed villa in St James, between Holetown and Speightstown. It was totally equipped, immaculately presented and perfectly positioned just 30 seconds from the lovely communal pool, shared with just seven other villas. Hired a car for one of the two weeks we were there and used the buses the rest of the time. An experience not to be missed. Flew Thomas Cook premier class which was worth every penny. They have got that right!

Beautiful villa in a wonderful country!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Number 1 Porters Court. We stayed for 12 days over May half term. We found the villa spacious and well equipped, perfect for a family of 4. Most mornings started with a swim in the communal pool, with the surrounding gardens a haven for hummingbirds, one morning I counted 5!!

The location of the villa was perfect, 5 mins walk to Alleynes beach which in my opinion is the best on the west coast. We used the local buses a lot so didn't feel the need to hire a car.

We ate out at Lone Star and Santi which were both within walking distance from the villa, on other occasions we jumped on a bus to Holetown. We also ate in a few evenings as the kitchen was so well equipped. Every possible utensil was provided.

Jeanine was very helpful and helped with transfers to and from the airport. Karen the housekeeper visited twice a week and was very friendly and efficient.

All in all a fabulous holiday in Barbados, this was our third visit to this wonderful country and will be back again next year. We'd definitely love to stay at Number 1 Porters Court again!!

A perfect Christmas.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a wonderful 9 day stay at One Porters Court. The villa is beautiful and extremely well equipped. The location is perfect, a short walk to the beach and local restaurants/beach bars. Lone Star was a Christmas eve treat and lived up to all of our expectations. We arrived to an spotlessly clean villa, and Jeanine the property manager was very helpful. Thank you Caroline for your prompt responses during the booking process. We fell in love with Barbados, and would love to return to One Porters.

A little piece of paradise on earth

  • 5 of 5

We cannot praise 1, Porters Court highly enough. From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the beautiful, tranquil location and the light, airy and spacious villa. The decor was very restful with tasteful, high quality furnishings and was a real home from home. The villa was very clean, no doubt thanks to Karen the lovely housekeeper who visited twice a week. Every little thing had been catered for including the provision of toilet roll and beach towels and it was great to have a welcome pack of groceries on our arrival. Air conditioning and fans ensured the interior of the villa remained lovely and cool even when it was very hot and humid outside so sleeping was never a problem and the beds were extremely comfortable. The veranda was a favourite place to sit to have our breakfast and pre- dinner drinks in the evenings. Surrounded by beautiful, tropical gardens and lots of wildlife including lizards and humming birds there was always something interesting to watch. We even saw a family of monkeys one day feeding under the trees! The communal pool is beautifully kept with sun beds and umbrellas and surrounded by lovely gardens. Although the property is next to a busy road we didn't notice any traffic noise and the beautiful beach is 5 minutes walk away. There are a number of good restaurants and rum shacks nearby and Holetown is a 20 minute walk if you need a supermarket, ATM or bigger choice of restaurants. If it's too hot to walk the local buses run straight past Porters Court. We would definitely recommend this property to others and would love to stay there again if we return to Barbados in the future.

An exceptional villa and so beautifully furnished.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is exceptional and the surroundings with the lush exotic garden so lovely. It is in a quiet secluded location, close to the private pool and very handy to the beach, just a short walk away. Within minutes to a number of vey good restaurants. The villa is well equipped and the beds deserve a special mention as they were very comfortable. The property manager Jeanine was very helpful and friendly as was housekeeper Karen. Both very warm and welcoming and willing to help in any way. A terrific and memorable holiday!

Wonderful holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at No. 1 Porters Court, the villa was exceptionally well-equipped, spotlessly clean (thanks to the lovely maid, Karen) and comfortable.

A great location on the West Coast, a short walk from the beach. The pool was beautiful, very clean, and mostly we had it to ourselves, which was an unexpected treat!

The location of No. 1 is perfect as it is at the end of the private road within Porters, and so nobody passes by and it is the most private of all the 8 villas within the development.

We had a very enjoyable and extremely memorable holiday - our 3 girls (aged 6, 8 and 11) were extremely comfortable in their spacious bedroom and loved Barbados !

Recommend "Lone Star" for a special dinner (went on our daughter's 11th birthday), also Harrison's Cave, Animal Flower Cave, and Earthworks Pottery which has a beautiful (and very reasonable) treetop restaurant.

Thank you Caroline, we loved staying in your beautiful villa and would have no hesitations in recommending it to our friends and family.

Best wishes,

Jo, John, Alice, Lily & Emma Ford :-) xx

Owner's Response: Thank you all for your positive review. We are delighted you enjoyed staying at No 1 and found the villa and facilities to your satisfaction. We value karen as it's important to her that our guests are comfortable and well looked after during their stay. How lovely for your family to celebrate a birthday at the Lone Star my personal favourite and a real dining experience. We love to walk along the beach as the Lone Star is 5 minutes away from the villa. We appreciate any recommendations you make and hope you visit No 1 again. Best Wishes Caroline & Ian Fleming

A lovely comfortable base in Barbados

  • 4 of 5

The villa was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Ideal for two couples with two en-suites and an outside sitting/eating area. The location of No1 is quiet and tucked away and our only company were lizards, birds and toads!

The property was immaculately clean and Keri-Ann came in 3 times during our 9 night stay to change our linen. The villa is ideally located for the West Coast and is a short drive or bus ride from Holetown or Speightstown. The nearest beach is fabulous (Alleynes Bay) with two bar restaurants (Ju-Ju's and Santi who have fantastic sunbeds for hire at BDS$15)

We can highly recommend this property for a West Coast based holiday.
