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.

                                                            What more can we say other than the apartment was stunning and the pictures just do not do it justice,....... You have to be there to appreciate just how amazing this place really is. You will want for nothing if you choose to stay here. Everything is perfect and Paula the Housekeeper cannot do enough for you. It was spotless from the minute we arrived to the minute we left and nothing was too much trouble for her. Simon the Property Manager was there to meet and greet us and is clearly a major asset and again was on hand if you needed him. If you are visiting the Island for the first time then you don't really need to have a car as the location is perfect with everything you could need so accessible. To sum up " not too shabby" that's for sure !!!

                                                            lovely villa in great location

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            We were greeted by Jim the manager on our arrival and he was very pleasant and informative. The villa is as described and was everything we hoped for, With a shortcut to the shops and facilities in Holetown it is really just a 10 minute slow walk from the villa ( no way one can walk quickly in the heat ). Villa was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. All furniture etc were in good condition and clean. The cleaner came weekly and the garden , pool etc were tidy and well maintained. Jim was very helpful responsive when we had one small problem with the ice maker. With good restaurants and bars such as Surfside, Zaccios, Carizma and Ragamuffins all in easy walking distance this Villa is ideal and I would recommend it to my friends and family.
