Description

Welcome to Porters Villa, a gorgeous 3-bedroom that resides at the end of a winding lane, passing through an enchanting forest of mahogany on the Porters Estate, on the sun-kissed Caribbean island of Barbados.

A quaint property from the outside, the seemingly small villa belies the spacious interior and expansive back garden that sits to the rear. The charm that this villa holds is incomparable; the red roof that sits on the walls made of local stone stands out proudly amongst the verdant green and deep dark woods of the forest and looks positively picturesque with the azure sky as a backdrop. The winding laneway of the road expands at the front of the house to accommodate the vehicles of guests comfortably, and indigenous plants and shrubbery decorate the fringes of the property, giving guests a glimpse of what wonders lie behind it in the landscaped garden.

Swaying palms and lazily drooping fronds, to carefully manicured shrubs and flowers, thoughtful lighting helps to bring the best features of the garden to life in the evenings. A circular pond features as a midpoint for all garden paths to trail from, and guests may enjoy the ambience and tranquillity of the flora for the duration of their stay. Close by, a swimming pool sits, just a few stone steps away, surrounded by a stone laid terrace. Sun loungers sit at the edge of the cool waters, making it hard to choose between topping up the suntan or taking a dive under the cool waters, a perfect solution to when the Barbados heat becomes uncomfortable.

Inside, the lounge area is open plan, and extends out onto the terrace through rounded archways where the pool resides, so making plans to cool off and have fun in the sun is always a tempting option wherever you may be in the house – a basket of towels sits ready and waiting for guests to take an impromptu plunge. The lounge contains gorgeous wood furniture, decorated with comfortable textiles and cushions, and surrounds a solid wood coffee table; overhead, ceiling fans make this an ideal spot for the easy flow of pleasant conversation, maintaining a comfortable temperature and ventilation. The lounge, located in the older section of the villa with the master bedroom, accesses the newer wing, which contains the dining area and kitchen, as well as the remaining two bedrooms.

The dining room, sitting adjacent to the kitchen, displays a rustic opulence – looking out onto a section of the garden with an elevated lily pond just outside the window, the floors are tiled with smooth marble, but the walls and pillars are constructed with rough-hewn coral stone, dressed in white coving. The ceiling overhead is designed with the intention to ventilate the room while maintaining the aesthetic of the villa – the vaulted wooden beams of the ceiling is crowned with a large cage chandelier. The kitchen is modern and sleek – state-of-the-art appliances and smooth worktops make for an efficient workspace, with ample cabinetry for storing food and delph. Paired with the services of a professional chef, guests are afforded the opportunity to sample the culinary delights of Barbados cuisine, with delicious food, made from local produce, without having to leave the comfort of the villa.

All rooms of the villa are based on the ground floor, including the bedrooms. Bright and airy with high ceilings and softly coloured textiles to promote a sense of peace and tranquillity, each of the rooms has a luxurious king-size bed within, with the option for separating them into twin beds available for the bedrooms in the new wing. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower that may wash away the cares of the day and soothe the body from a long day of exploration and activity.

LOCATION DETAILS

Located on the island of Barbados as the first port of call to the Caribbean Sea from the east, Porters Great House Cottage offers both complete privacy and security, but also maintains ease of access to Holetown and the amenities, shops, restaurants, clubs and pubs that populate it. Barbados has a colourful past and a rich heritage, which guarantees that guests will not be stuck for activities or excursions, not to mention historical interests. As Barbados is a relatively small island, most destinations and sightseeing spots are within easy reach of a few hours’ drive. Further afield, Bridgetown lies to the southern side of the island, with an array of sights to see and explore, from historic buildings and natural vistas, to fun and exciting activities, with a sprinkling of retail therapy in between. If the enchanting mahogany forest that encloses the property doesn’t suffice, the wonderful Petrea Gardens are just over half a kilometer away from the property, filled with the indigenous flora and fauna that live on the island. The nearest beach, Heron Bay Beach (550m) is within easy walking distance, along with a whole host of other beaches for guests to enjoy dotted around the coastline.

Wonderful memories
Wonderful memories

Thank you for a wonderful stay in a stunning country! What a beautiful property filled with adventure, beauty and wonderful memories for our family. From daily dips in the pool to evening walks with the monkeys - this truly was a wonderful stay. Lou-Ann, Mania and the rest of the staff are wonderful, friendly and so kind. Thank you to Mania and Lou-Ann for taking our daughter in as their own, walking her to see the fish and making breakfast with her.

An honor!
An honor!

To the owners,
What an honor it was being some of the first guests at the Porters Great House Cottage! Upon our arrival we slithered down the jungle draped driveway spotting dozens of Barbadian Green Monkeys! We were pleasantly surprised that the cottage sat just next to the historic plantation home and its rolling tropical gardens, koi ponds and sprawling outdoor lounge areas. We prayed in the chapel on Palm Sunday and had an Easter Egg hunt on the spongy backyard grasses before Easter. While these are some of our favorite spring holiday traditions at home they were so much more fun and memorable in this paradise! We tried very hard to take full advantage of all that this property had to offer and couldn’t even scratch the surface! The cottage smelled of the island’s flora, beautiful and fresh! Everyday we spotted new details in each of the home’s decorations. The furniture was comfortable, the flow was comfortable - everything was comfortable and allowed full vacation mode to set in instantly! The staff around the grounds were always smiling, greeting us by name and teaching our children about the local environment. Our cook, Fay, made sure we ate local favorites but accommodated us and surprised us with her own delicious twists on our routine requests! Mania sincerely cared for the home and took an interest in our kids, asking them questions about their days and adventures. Our hopes in writing this is to communicate our utmost thanks. We appreciated the trust you left in your guests and the respect you showed for them by opening your personal spaces for their use - it was very generous.

Wonderful haven

Expert Review Pic I visited Porters Great House Cottage in Nov 2019 & was so impressed. Guests staying here enter by the very grand Great House entrance & drive up the Bearded Fig Tree lane way to the cottage. It's so lovely. The décor is stunning - beautifully finished & very modern. Another win here is the beautiful gardens & private pool that the guests have access to. There's even a gym!I'd highly recommend this rental for those looking for a quiet villa stay with immaculate décor. Good to know the beach by the Colony Club is the closest - you can stroll or drive down.
