“Excellent Villa, home from home”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just back from this amazing villa, 17 days of joy!
Porters Court is a great development 5 mins from one of the most popular beaches in Barbados!
People travel from the South Coast to spend a day there, you're 5 mins away with 8 Porters Court.
The Villa is clean and tidy with everything you need to relax, really comfy beds and a great furniture too, inside and out.
We felt safe and secure, with the addition of an easy to use house alarm, we knew our belongings were safe while we drank run punches and played in the Sea.
We've already contacted the owners about a possible return, book it quick folks!!
Tips - when you book the villa, book your diner reservations too, Tides, Lonestar, The Cliff (the new beach club too) & of course Sandy Lane for Sunday Lunch all book up months in advance.
Enjoy!

“A home away from home in beautiful Barbados”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We’ve just returned home from a wonderful stay at number 8 Porters Court and miss it already! The villa is beautiful, spacious and tastefully decorated and the owners had thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We really can’t recommend it enough.

This was our first visit to Barbados and right from enquiring about the booking the owners were on hand to give us the best advice and tips regarding our stay. Lisa (the owner) arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and Sandra (the property manager) gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. The location of the villa is great – a 5 minute walk to the beach (gorgeous Alleyne Bay), a couple of beach bars for sundowners and the yummy Lonestar restaurant. It’s also close to the main road where you can jump on a bus to another part of the island. Holetown (the nearest town) is around 5 minutes away on the bus, and has lots of lovely restaurants and bars. We often caught the ‘reggae’ bus in the evening and a taxi back.

The villa is in a gated block of 8 others and feels really secure with entry systems on all of the gates and a burglar alarm in the villa. It’s very quiet and peaceful – many of our pool days were spent around a deserted pool and we didn’t hear noise from any of the other villa occupants or the road.

Inside, the villa is spacious, airy and light with a well equipped kitchen, dining table and extremely comfy sofa’s to lounge on. The bedrooms are large, and the master suite has a huge superking sized bed. Air conditioning units and fans mean it’s also really cool, despite the hot weather. The veranda area is also lovely, with a large dining table, chairs and a hammock - perfect for breakfast or an early evening G&T.

A fantastic villa – we’d be back in a shot.

“Beautiful villa, great location”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in November 2015

8 Porters Court is a beautiful villa in an amazing location - just a short walk from The Lone Star and the beach with 2 friendly local bars - a perfect combination of sophistication and local charm. The villa is very comfortable with large sofas and beds - although we didn't spend so much time inside as there is a very spacious, secluded wrap around veranda which is ideal for eating, sitting or lounging. The complex is beautifully maintained, very quiet and has a lovely pool. Idyllic is every sense!

“Complete Bliss”
Reviewed 22 January 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Having had a wet and miserable Summer and Autumn in GB, three of us headed out to Barbados for some R & R. I could not believe my eyes when the taxi turned into the small gated enclave of Porters Court. It is a scene worthy of Dallas or Dynasty (those who remember it) lush green vegetation and wonderful tropical flowers. The Court, itself, is very well kept, tidy and clean. No 8 is a real gem, beautifully arranged with a spacious living area, which we did not really use as the weather was so warm. A veranda which was comfortable and seated the 3 of us with acres of space, we could have held a dinner party there was so much room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed and the kitchen was well supplied with the necessary utensils. In short it was a dream. Would I go back? just try stopping me!
