Carribean Paradise in a perfect location

5 of 5
My fiancé and I (from Toronto, Canada) stayed in the Beach Pavilion at James Bay from April 6-15, 2018. We learned of this luxury villa by way of a chance encounter with Marc Ward in July of 2017 while we were on a vacation in the south of Barbados (PJ and Marc own and operate the property). The location is absolutely perfect. It is situated on the famous gold coast of Barbados with dead west exposure, unbelievable sunsets every night and is perfectly located right in the middle between Holetown and Speightstown. The location is referred to as "The Garden" and it is within the Parish of St. James. We rented a mini moke for our 9 day stay, so were mobile to hit all the of the many great restaurants in the area, shop, site see, etc.. As far as restaurants go, The Tides, Island Plates, Da Outback, Mertons (in Moontown), Santi's and the Cliff Beach Club were among our favourites. There was a very handy fresh fish market just a 5 minute stroll along the beach to the north. We had perfect weather throughout our stay, with the only rainfall happening throughout the night, cooling things down just right. The beach pavilion has a very large deck (~ 500 sq ft) nicely laid out with a bar / cooking area, dining table and 2 comfy couches. It is literally 40 feet from the lapping, calm ocean waves! I actually slept outside a couple of nights, with the sound of the ocean waves as close as you could get. Up and down the coast, we never saw a property that was as close to the ocean as our beach pavilion. Very, very cool location really. The large outdoor shower was a nice touch too in a completely private area immediately outside the main entrance. Particularly important to mention, the property has ~ 40 coconut and palm trees, like no other within site when you are out on the ocean looking inland. I water skied frequently (Rupert was awesome - had a Malibu ski boat which was converted from a stock mid drive to a 225HP Yamaha outboard). Rupert was a great driver and was very reasonable and reliable (he operates out of the above mentioned fish market area). We met awesome people that also stayed on the property in the larger two bedroom apartments, set back from the beach pavilion. These too were great accommodations, fitting for a family of 4-6 for sure. The Ward's were great hosts, attentive, etc. and kept the property spotless. The property is very secure & safe. James Bay Luxury Villas attracts a lot of repeat customers as we will be!!

Beautiful beachfront Villa

5 of 5
Lovely beachfront Villa with plunge pool. This was our third stay at Camden Nook and it just keeps getting better. Lovely positioned plunge pool jacuzzi overlooking the sea. We had lovely lunches made for us and enjoyed the Sonos music facility. Camden Nook is well placed for access to the main restaurants on the west coast and we visited Lone Star, the Cliff, Tides all being great beach front restaurants and Nishi in Holetown a fantastic Sushi and Pie restaurant!. Also we liked Lemongrass (Asian/Thai) and Pepenero (Italian) in The Limegrove being great value. We did water sports where we were picked up from villa. Best trip being Calabaza catamaran cruise along with nights to Harbour lights. 1st street on Sundays being a great music street party night with street food also and one love bar serving very cheap drinks. Tuesdays and Thursday band night at Bar in Chattel village. Also went to Garrison savannah for races which was great. Thanks to Nick and Celia for letting us stay in your lovely villa. John, Tracey, Rebecca, Adam, Lynsie, Charlotte & Rob.😎🇧🇧👌🏖
