Make a holiday rental, home or a beachfront villa in Holetown, Barbados your home away from home

Holetown was the first settlement in Barbados, the jewel of the Caribbean. Blessed with white sandy beaches and stunning scenery, Holetown Barbados has become a retreat on Barbados’ Platinum Coast. Holetown marks the landing spot of Captaon Henry Powell in 1625, and a monument still stands, although it marks the occasion as occurring in 1605!

Places to holiday in St James, Barbados

Barbados is an island filled with gems. The coastal regions allow you to swim, dive, snorkel, wreck dive, fish and sail, and there are many caves and coves to explore. The towns of Bridgetown and Speightstown are great towns to explore and meet the locals.

A villa in Holetown gives you an idyllic base to explore the whole of Barbados. There are no end of scenic beaches and colonial houses and plantations to enjoy on your Barbados holiday, not least the Francia Plantation and the incredible views to both north and south from Hackelton’s Cliff.

For nature, the Graeme Hall Swamp and bird Sanctuary and the Ocean Park are must see attractions.

Things to do on holiday in Holetown, Barbados

Holetown is on the most exclusive stretch of the Barbados coast, due to the magnificent beaches, crystal clear waters and luxury Barbados beachfront villas. The annual Holetown festival is a colourful festival of arts, crafts, historical parades, and music. Taking a Barbados villa in Holetown at this time of year is an exciting and fun time to rent.

Holetown is not a large settlement by any means. It does have shops, restaurants and bars, but it is not a vibrant town, but a relaxed easy-going village with magnificent natural surroundings. The Folkestone Marine Park is a great place to see some of the more unique animals living on the island, and snorkelling trails and glass bottomed boat expeditions can be arranged from the visitor centre.

Venturing off the sublime white powder beach, the waters of Holetown are magnificent for scuba diving. Visibility is very long, and there are some beautiful and bizarre fish and sea life swimming off the Barbados shores. Water skiing is also very popular here, and there are facilities and boats available from the beach. The great year-round weather also lends itself to other outdoor activities, such as taking tennis lessons or hiking in the countryside.

Weather in Holetown, Barbados

A Barbados villa rental in Holetown, St James is sun drenched all year round. Average daily high temperatures reach 29°C, but the northeast trade winds keep holidaymakers refreshed. Hurricanes usually miss Barbados, but if you are taking a Holetown beachfront villa, it is worth remembering that the hurricane season runs from June until October.

The owners were very helpful and the friendly house manager was on site to begin with to show us the ropes. This is a lovely, spacious apartment. The huge 6 foot bed in the main bedroom is so comfortable, as is the sizable well-equipped kitchen/lounge. Apartment and pool are clean and efficiently maintained. The secluded long balcony is to die for - overlooking an orchard with playful monkeys for entertainment. We loved to relax there on the hot afternoons and watch the fireflies twinkle in the evening. The coast here is beautiful - Glitter Bay to the right (and it does) but our favourite to the left, Heron Bay, is away from the larger beaches and has shade as well as sun. We didn't need a car on the island and always walked to Holetown (20 minutes on the road, a bit longer splashing along the seafront) where the Surfside bar/restaurant is a must, and the huge Massy supermarket is across the road. Once or twice we had bought heavy provisions and a quick ride on the bus was the answer. Try Santi's bar and restaurant, we loved it, but we always wanted to spend time on that balcony. Quite honestly 5 stars does not do justice to this apartment - we'd give it a lot more if we could. We had a wonderful time. Can't wait to get back.
