The location of the property is excellent and within walking distance to everything you need, the supermarket, bottle shops, shopping and to restaurants and bars. We booked the penthouse for a pre-season trip away, and what can I say, this place is absolutely fantastic. The apartment has fantastic views, has its own plunge pool and was clean and is well...

Fantastic, informative service, right from the very start of my enquiry. Very clean rooms, pool is just divine (kids loved swimming in 'the blue pool' of an evening), the view is AMAZING! Great walking distance to everything, and not up a steep hill either! Will miss our nightly views from the hot tub! Looking forward to coming back as soon...

Being so close to the main strip is very Convenient, no car needed, the lady on the desk is very welcoming and someone you can easily ask any questions. The views you get from the balcony your apartment is stunning and nothing can replace these views. Cant wait to be back in may after visiting in November.

Stayed for three nights in February. No way near long enough. Booked into a one bedroom hot tub room. It was amazing. The views were breathtaking. There was everything in the apartment you could ever need. The management were so welcoming and so helpful

Portside is situated close to town & right across from the famous rum bar. It's not up the horribly steep hill so perfect if you don't have a car. The owner Coleen was nothing but helpful, such a hardworking nice lady. Would recommend😊

“I stayed in an apartment with a rooftop jacuzzi and would DEFINITELY recommend this option! I loved my stay and will be back again and again. The town is only a 50 metre walk from Portside (with no hills!). John and Colleen are amazing hosts and have a lot of local knowledge. Everything from check-in to check-out was absolutely perfect and could not fault this accommodation for any reason. Thank you so much Collen and John for a wonderful place to stay during my much deserved holiday. Absolutely fantastic! See you again soon.”
