This villa is a beachfront home. It should be noted that beaches change their shape and size from day to day, week to week and month to month, mainly as a response to seasonal waves, currents and tides. Every effort has been made to depict the beach in front of this property, but temporary changes may occur.

Area description

Portico is located right beside the picturesque Prospect Bay Beach just a couple of miles from Sandy lane on a 15 ft. bluff, overlooking the Caribbean sea. The villa is located opposite one of the island’s best diving reefs featuring the Stavronikita, a 365 ft. sunken wreck in 120 ft. of water.

This lovely Barbados vacation rental property is also very close to Bridgetown and Holetown with both being only ten minutes away by car. The villa is also located near to the shopping area and world-class restaurants including the Cliff. Portico is only 30 minutes drive from Grantley Adams International Airport.

Expert Reviews

Modern and Stylish with a Breathtaking View.

Expert Review Pic I really enjoyed my stay in Portico and will hopefully return one day. This modern, bright and spacious Villa has a breathtaking view of the Caribbean ocean. It has good size bedrooms with small terraces areas and an open plan living area which leads out to the balcony and my favorite "The Plunge Pool". I do want to come back here !!

Stunning views

Expert Review Pic Really gorgeous accommodation. Stunning terrace and living space. Great facilities including the sauna, gym & lap pool. Good to know the beach here depends on the tide but its only couple of mins up to Paynes Bay which guests often use. The decor & furnishings are second to none here.
