I have just come back from a short but very sweet stay at 4 Porters Gate.
I have stayed in Barbados many times over the last 20 years and this has to be my favourite base. Porters Gate is ideally located and number 4 met our needs and expectations in every way.
The outside area is great for relaxing and the inside is tastefully decorated. The beds are probably the most comfortable I have encountered away from my own.
The bedroom balconies were great for an early morning read and a cuppa in the sun. The en suites are a great size and the showers work well.
The housekeeper, Paulette, is a lovely and friendly lady.
Heather was the most amazing host and was always there to help me with my (probably annoying) questions
The beach is just a short stroll away, and Holetown is easily accessable either by foot or by bus.
Two of my favourite West Coast locations, The Colony Club bar for sunset drinks, and The Lone Star restaurant, are around a 10 minute stroll.
The complex has a good sized, clean pool and is quiet and relaxing.
I would not hesitate to come again to number 4, and would be confident in recommending this place to anyone.
Thanks Heather and Mark for all of your help and patience and for a lovely stay in a lovely place.
We stayed at 4 Porters Gate in May. It was absolutely fabulous, the best villa we’ve stayed in. Heather, the owner is really friendly and helpful and communication was brilliant from booking and all the way through our stay. She kindly arranged for some shopping to be brought to the villa so we didn't have to go to the supermarket on our first evening. The complementary bottle of fizz was also greatly appreciated!
The villa is sparkling clean and the house keeper Paulette is lovely and comes part way through your stay to freshen up the place, which was great. 4 PG is spacious with great facilities. The beach towels are very good quality and the beds are so comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and it was really useful having a bbq.
We spent many a morning reading in the private garden and relaxing in the plunge pool. It’s so quiet and peaceful there and such a sun trap from about 9 until 3.
The villa is in a great location. Very close to the bus stops, the beach and many bars and restaurants. It’s a bit of a walk into Holetown in the heat but you can jump on the bus very easily.
We loved sundowners at Jujus Beach bar which is about ten minutes walk, the street part on Sunday at One Love is also great fun. Other favourites were Zaccios and The Sea Cat.
I’d definitely stay at 4 PB again and would highly recommend Heather’s place.
A beautiful luxury villa the owners have ticked every detail to a very high standard & tastefully decorated throughout.. The rooms are big, bright & airy. There’s an abundance of fresh towels regularly changed..
Fabulous location within easy walking distance to The Fairmount Beach club & warm welcomed by the lovely Fairmont lasses Kerry & Shoylette. Plenty of sun loungers & umbrellas available. We enjoyed our sundowners every night on the beach there.
Several nights we enjoyed dining alfresco @ the villas, just so nice to chill in this quiet property. Of course we visited some ‘FAB’ restaurants too including Jazz night on Wed @ La Cabane, Nishis (Sushi to die for) in Holetown,
The Cliff Beach Club , (despite the cheeky server who queried giving us our $35USD change after we had generously tipped the waiter before .... watch out for that)
Lunch @ Relish in Limegrove was delicious with the new flat bread dishes..The
Highlight apart from spend precious days & nights with my gorgeous friends has to our day on Seaduced catamaran... Just magical & super super delishhhhh food & wine...
Well what more can I say than what a little haven this place is ! Just spent a week at 4 Porters gate and had an amazing time. Everything you need on your doorstep access to fantastic beach club and superb restaurants. We spent many evenings just relaxing in the beautiful gardens chilling in the plunge pool and eating al fresco.
The whole interior is well maintained with a unique chic design.
Going back next year !!!!!
Our whole experience of booking and holidaying at 4 Porters Gate was amazing. Heather, the owner, feels like an old friend being helpful and keeping us in touch every step of the way providing plenty of useful info on transfers, restaurants, excursions etc. The villa is peaceful, beautiful, well equipped and efficiently managed, nothing was too much trouble. Paulette the house keeper is a gem . The location is good and Beach Club membership at the Fairmont Hotel was the icing on the cake, We would have booked straight away to return next year but it’s already booked so make sure you book early so as not to miss this fabulous home from home in paradise.
