An award winning architectural gem that looks out over the beachfront of the St. James area of Barbados, Villa Portico 1 is an ideal choice for the discerning traveler. An award winning design is only one facet of this villa's endless appeal. It is roomy and spacious, offers wonderful views and an ideal location, and provides a bevy of amenities that are sure to satisfy.

It all begins with the view. From your glass-front terrace, you can take in the uninterrupted sea view, or you can just stroll down to the beachfront in a matter of minutes. You also enjoy a good view of the community pool from your terrace area too. However, if a trip to the beach or a stroll to the pool doesn’t appeal, the terrace is home to an utterly charming plunge pool as well.

Beneath the massive covered terrace, you can take a dip or simply stretch out on the appealing lounge furniture. Slide open the glass panel doors and step inside to the brilliant décor and space of the open floor plan great room. Here you will enjoy a formal dining room, a large living room, and direct access to the beautifully designed kitchen (with breakfast bar).

Of course, the villa also features a staff that includes a cook as well as a housekeeper, so you do not have to do any meal prep or clean while on your holiday! The site also offers a private gym and sauna too.

There are three bedrooms in this villa and each offers a luxurious en suite bathroom along with private terraces or views.

If you are looking to enjoy the best of Barbados, consider the perfect location, excellent design and impressive amenities of Villa Portico 1. With its gracious and well-appointed interiors, it would serve a large family or group of discerning travelers very well.

We could not have wished for a warmer welcome from the very start of our family holiday to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. Nadia, Sophia (❤️XX), Angela and the rest of the team made our holiday so special and we can not thank them all enough!
The location, apartment and amenities are 5 star - the views overlooking the beach just yards are away are astounding. I have fallen in love with Barbados and especially the people - we can not wait to return one day. Holiday of a lifetime which we will never forget. Dean and Kirsteen and the kids xx

We really enjoyed our time at Portico. We had the whole place to ourselves & really loved the contemporary décor- hard to find a place like this with such a modern style. My wife used the gym every day – another plus. The cook here Anna was really excellent – she prepared amazing fish dishes for us & nothing was too much trouble. We would sit on the terrace in the mornings & walk 1 minute to the beach by Waves Hotel to relax on the beach for an hour or two – then we’d return to our terrace. Sunsets amazing – watching the catamarans pass by a rum punch while our meal was being prepared – heaven. Our friends were staying in a hotel – they couldn’t get over our place!

We stayed in two properties whilst on our recent vacation to Barbados. Our favorite was definitely Portico 1. We loved the cool contemporary decor. And the views from the Terrace were sublime. Although we couldn't swim right in front of Portico, there was a lovely calm swimming spot just to the right where we swam every day. We had the communal pool to ourselves the whole time and there was also a great gym on site. It was also no distance at all to Holetown which we loved.

WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING

"The trip was truly fabulous, and I hope that we get to do it again some day. The villa certainly delivered on all that it promised from the pictures online."
