The development known as Porters Gate is a private, tranquil gated community (electronic security gates) and consists of 28 townhouses, set in spacious surroundings adorned with local shrubs, colourful planting and swaying palm trees . There is a sociable shared swimming pool, tennis-court & club-house. Nestled in a quiet area around a 6-8 minute walk from the nearest beach & only 2 minutes walk to Highway 1 for buses to Holetown (1 mile) where you will find many shops / supermarkets / banks & restaurants. Our house, Palm View is a beautifully presented modern 3-bed/3.5 bath townhouse built around 2005.

Through to the dining area there is a ceiling fan to keep you cool in the evenings with a dining table & chairs for 6 people.. From here you can open the french doors which lead out onto the large covered terrace where you can enjoy al fresco dining or why not get comfy in kindle corner a perfect spot for curling up with your kindle & a cold Banks beer whilst listening to the birds, watching the green monkeys or spotting the beautiful hummingbirds which visit our lovely garden.
Back into the living area, there is a sofa and 2 chairs for sitting back, relaxing and catching up on the news from home! This area also benefits from a ceiling fan. We have a brilliant TV system with all UK/US/Canadian/Sport channels as well as a great selection of movies to watch.
And finally for your convenience, there is a downstairs powder room & an understairs cupboard housing iron / ironing board and other useful items.
As you ascend the wooden staircase you will look up to see a wonderful vaulted ceiling - one of my favourite aspects of this house! There are 3 bedrooms; bedroom 1 at the top of the stairs has 2 single beds (can be pushed together if needed) fitted wardrobes with full length hanging & plentiful shelving. The en-suite shower room has a very large walk in shower, w/c & vanity unit.

The balcony from this room overlooks the rear garden & trees beyond. This bedroom also benefits from air conditioning & a ceiling fan.
The master bedroom is a great size and has a (UK) king size bed (or a US queen size) and again ample wardrobe space for 2 with full height hanging & lots of shelving. With another wonderful vaulted ceiling this is my favourite room... the en-suite is huge and has a twin vanity unit, large whirpool/jacuzzi bath tub with shower & w/c.
