    We truly are in paradise here in Barbados. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved getting to know Sophia and Crystal. They took great care of us during our six day holiday and really appreciate the great meals cooked by Crystal and the housekeeping provided by Sophia. We are sad to leave Portico1, but could not be more thankful for the accomodations, the weather and new friends we have made with Sophia and Crystal.

    We had the best time! Thank you to Sophia and Kadeem, Portico 1 is truly heaven on earth. This was exactly the vacation we needed and we can't wait to come back again soon. Barbados is a stunning island, but the people truly make it one of the happiest places. Only a short plane ride away. We love this island!
