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.

                                      We returned a week ago from staying in the waterfall villa and everything was just lovely. It actually rained for the first day and a half when we arrived but because we were tired we were able to relax under the porch as it was still very warm. The owner had put out 2 sugar water feeders for the hummingbirds right under the porch and was just lovely as they were there every half hour or so. We also fed the green monkey that came occasionally that sat on our wall so again never been so close to these before. The villa was clean and very user friendly. Handy downstairs utility with quick access to the pool which was also nice not to have to use toilets upstairs. We have been now around 7/8 times and this was one of the nicest villas we have stayed in. Cleaner cam in every couple of days but we and was always nice fresh bedding and clean towels. Thank you Peggy! We also found a restaurant down at St Lawrence called Beach One. Highly recommend this as the food is fantastic and you can watch the turtles come up onto the beach occasionally to lay eggs. Another rarity! A very pleasant stay and hope to return again at some point. Thank you again Charlton for the enjoyable stay!

                                      We arrived at Bougainvillea to be greeted by a lovely lady who showed us round the apartment and guided us through everything we needed to know. The apartment was absolutely fantastic, spotless with everything we needed, plenty of towels including beach towels. Andrea (housekeeper) came and cleaned for us which was brilliant. The Apartment was well equipped with nothing forgotten! With two lovely patio areas with seats & table, one coming out from the lounge and one coming out from the bedroom The pool & pool area was great, very clean and well maintained. The apartment was very near everything, just a short 5 min walk to the Garage which sold everything you would want and then just across the road the supermarket/mall. The Beach was about a 4 min walk which would take you Discovery Bay Beach or you could walk a bit further down to Surfside/Zaccios Beach or you could walk further up to Mullins, Alleynes or any beach to be honest. Limegrove which is also just a 4 min walk has lovely shops and restaurants & bars within easy reach and also just over the road from there is 1st & 2nd Street, again with bars and restaurants & just another couple of minutes walk further down are more lovely restaurants & bars, including Tides, Zaccios, Drift, Beach House and many more. So, in a nutshell, this apartment is a Gem which is perfectly positioned for everything. I would recommend this to any of my friends and family and we will definitely be returning ........ Big Thanks to Joan Prethero

                                      Nice apartment in a convenient location

                                      Casa Margarita has a great position on the first floor overlooking the pool. The flats are clean, well maintained and built to a high standard. We loved lounging on the balcony, enjoying the warmth but out of direct sun for most of the day. The pool is a good size, not enormous but ideal for a cooling dip and the pool area was great for sunbathing and just relaxing. The apartment has all the amenities you could need and the air conditioning is definitely a welcome feature! It is only a short walk to beautiful beaches, great restaurants and shops. A car is not really needed.
