Porters Court, behind the Royal Pavilion Hotel is a stroll from the white coral sands, where our guests will be greeted by the turquoise Caribbean sea. Porters Court is an exclusive development of eight chattel style villas, in a secure and gated complex, surrounding a shared pool, set in tropical landscaped gardens. The complex is ideal for groups wanting to rent neighbouring villas for special occasions such as weddings, big birthdays etc. Number One has a wraparound veranda and ceiling fan. You can dine in the lounge or on the veranda, relax in our hammock and watch the Hummingbirds feed from the tropical plants.
The nearby water sports shops along the beach offer everything from snorkeling to scuba diving, sailing and fishing trips, swimming with the turtles and more. The hotels and restaurants are numerous and nearby. One of the ‘in-spots’ to eat is at the Lone Star Restaurant which is a short walk away via the beach. Or, even closer still for an excellent choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner overlooking the sea is the Royal Pavilion itself. Ju Ju’s is a casual beach bar serving lunch , dinner and drinks. A popular place to watch the sun setting, whilst sipping a Rum punch!!
If you walk south along the beaches (all of them are public) you will come to Holetown. Alternatively the nearby bus stop or taxi rank at the Royal Pavilion will take you by road. Buses are cheap, very frequent and cost just $2BDS (1$US) per journey, anywhere on the island.
Holetown, just half a mile away, is where the first English settlers arrived in 1627. It’s a buzzing town with a supermarket, bank, doctors surgeries, post office, police station, internet cafes, copious restaurants, big screen TV bars for sports enthusiasts, duty free shopping, gym and tennis courts. Full details at the villa.
Keep going and you will come to the Sandy Lane Hotel with its famous guests and golf courses. For golfers, the Royal Westmoreland Golf Club is just one mile behind Porters Court.
Further on again and Bridgetown, the Capital, offers more shopping, boating, night clubs for the very young at heart, and all the city banks and facilities. A bus journey from Porters will cost BD$2.00 and the bus stop is just near the villa. In fact, buses are all BD$2.00 for as long as the journey takes. Or why not take a jet ski for lunch at one of the beach front restaurants?
To the North buses take you to Speightstown. Here there are art shops, a supermarket and street vendors selling home grown vegetables and fruit. The Fisherman’s Pub on Wednesday nights has a steel drum band and traditional cuisine.
Grantley Adams International Airport is 45 minutes drive along the highway and is clearly signposted.
