As you enter the main Coral Stone entrance, a long stately drive flanked by mahogany trees leads you to Porters Great House.

One of Barbados' most historically important houses, the 22 acres of manicured lawns and woodland offer unrivalled tranquillity and privacy on the west coast. Built in 1660, the property underwent a complete refurbishment in 2006. During this careful restoration the house was fitted out for 21st Century living while also retaining its Colonial charm.

The main house has five air conditioned bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. A grand foyer, comfortable living room, formal dining room, reading room and a large indoor entertainment room complete the accommodation of the main house.

The swimming pool is complemented by a large coral stone pool pavilion with a fully equipped bar. Other outdoor facilities include a fourteen seated dining pavilion, a charming 300 year old church and a raised folly at the rear of the garden accessed by 80 coral stone steps. All indoor and outdoor entertainment areas use an integrated surround sound system with Ipod connectivity.

The kitchen at Porters is outfitted with the latest quality appliances and the house staff are available to ensure you are pampered and enjoy a relaxing holiday.

There is also a large one bedroom cottage on the grounds with all its own amenities, including a private walled garden.

Whether you wish to sit quietly and read or come together with your family and friends, this spacious and elegant property offers you that comfort.

The Saint James Parish region

Barbados offers such an abundance of natural beauty, culture and history that the island is called “The Gem of the Caribbean.” Located about 300 miles north of Venezuela and the most Eastern of the Caribbean islands, Barbados portrays a delightful blend of West Indian culture and English Tradition. Independent since 1966, Barbados is the most developed of the Caribbean islands and Bridgetown, the 375-year-old historic capital is its colourful and bustling center of activity. Shopping, excellent dining and a funky nightlife are just a few of the many options available. There is an extensive bus system that is cheap and fast, providing an entertaining way to discover the island.

There are magnificent caves to explore, gorgeous landscapes and tropical gardens to visit, and an abundance of wildlife to see, including the mischievous little “green monkeys” that call Barbados their home. On the South and West coasts, the Caribbean Sea with calm blue waters and endless stretches of fine white sandy beaches invites you to relax, while the Atlantic east coast with cliffs and great waves is ideal for wind and sky surfing.

There is lots to do and the choice is not easy, but whether you enjoy some of the 3,000 hours of annual sunshine or chat with a friendly “Bajan” in one of the numerous little rum shops on the roadsides, make sure to relax in the comfort of your private Rental Butler villa at the end of the day. Take in the breathtaking sunsets, have a delicious local dinner prepared for you or just lean back and dream into the starry skies.
