About the owner: I divide my time between barbados and the Uk so constantly on top of the Villa. I also have a local business selling real estate and renting villa other than my own. So when you rent mine you also get all the services of our local holetown concierge included and a lot of great advice. Barbados is a special place and local knowledge like ours can make your holiday even better.
Why the Owner Chose Porters: I used to work on the Island in the Hotel business and when I persued an opportunity in the Uk I decided to do short term rentals. This location is the best spot on the west coast in my opinion, as its on a private road that leads to the beach, its quiet and only other home owners and staff access it. I can be on the beach in 2 mins and walk north and south to great restaurants and hotels or swim or water ski or be picked up off the beach by boat for a sail.
Our Property Manager and Concierge Kerrie does a great job of making sure our guests our well looked after and that anything you need help or advice with is done.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: This is a great house for families or groups of friends as you can rent the house with 3 beds or add on the cottage for 4 or 5 beds giving veryone a little space. The cottage also has a kitchen. When booking you get 3 staff including Patsy our cook, Desmond our Butler and Nadine who cleans up after you so you can do as much or as little as you like. Our beach service means you can spend the day on the beach and pop back for lunch or a snooze in the garden as you want. Desmond will ensure that you are well looked after and mix rum cocktails and do all in his power to make sure you enjoy yourselves.
