A beautiful, peaceful hideaway villa, minutes from the West Coast beaches. Lovely location, with stunning interiors and a swimming pool in the grounds.
Porters Great House Cottage is a beautiful villa nestled within the renowned centuries-old Porters estate. The cottage enjoys a gorgeous location within this iconic property along the island's wonderful West Coast and offers a stately welcome with a winding driveway through an enchanting mahogany forest.
The cottage is a one-storey retreat with an authentic wing that features coral stone and the original architecture on the exterior, and a modern wing that was more recently added to create a more spacious home. The villa's entrance, off the extensive front driveway and garden, bids welcome to a cozy yet chic and contemporary interior.
The original wing of the home comprises the master suite and the living room, both of which have tiled floors and large windows that create a vibrant, sunlit ambiance. The living room is a cozy nook complete with a calming, modern décor, a large comfy sofa, a study table and cable television. The living room then opens to the newer wing of the home, which includes the dining room, kitchen and the remaining two bedrooms. The dining area is a feature of the home, with quasi-rustic décor including a large metalwork chandelier, marble floors and a semi-open-air ambiance thanks to its open design that flows into a small garden. It features a wall designed entirely of wooden shutters, and then it opens and flows directly onto the corridor that leads to the other two bedrooms in one direction, and to the cottages entrance in the other direction. This corridor's design features a wrought iron gate wall, which leads out into a small garden with a small, elevated lily pond. The dining room also has a high ceiling with an intricate woodwork design for optimum ventilation.
The kitchen is very modern and spacious, with marble floors, quartz counter tops, an island, two sinks (one double and one single) stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and espresso machine, tableware and a wall of windows that allow cooling natural breezes. There is also a small laundry room off from the kitchen.
The master bedroom features a King bed, air conditioning and a ceiling fan, as well as an en-suite bathroom with a single vanity, a glass-walled shower. There is a secondary entrance that leads into a hallway with a large wardrobe area and a smaller linen closet. The master also offers verdant views of the cottage gardens and driveway. The remaining two bedrooms are identical in their positioning and offering, with walk-in wardrobe, vanity, en-suite bathrooms with single vanities and glass-wall showers, Twin beds that may be converted into King beds, and stunning unobstructed views of the Porters estate signature mahogany forest through large double doors.
Property owners tend to accept bookings over the Christmas and New Year period on stricter terms than at other times of year. In general, bookings are subject to a 14 night minimum stay but owners may require a 3 week booking in some cases and will often need to approve dates to fit with their own travel plans or those of other guests. A higher deposit of 50% of the total rental price is payable for such bookings and the balance becomes due earlier at 90 days before arrival.
All prices quoted above have been calculated based on information provided by the owners but are subject to confirmation during December and January as occasionally owners may insist on the higher Christmas rate being applied either side of the main Christmas period. We suggest you contact us for a firm price quotation at this time of year, before making your booking.

The above prices include all local taxes (VAT, Shared Economy Levy, Room Rate Levy as applicable) as well as any local service charges. A security deposit of US$1,000 will be required on arrival.
