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 bed is very comfortable with plenty of towels. The swimming pool is great as is the on site Chinese. It's a short walk to plenty of restaurants and bars and beach. The owners are lovely and could not do enough for us. Highly recommend this.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I have been to Barbados several times, although it was my first time at this condo. I accompanied my mother (85 years old) on her first visit to Barbados. We enjoyed our stay at this well equipped and beautifully decorated condo. It was very clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and responded to any questions I had promptly. There are 2 air-conditioned bedrooms/baths upstairs and although the main floor is not air-conditioned there are 3 fans that serve the purpose. When we were not out in the evening, we enjoyed sitting in the back patio which is enclosed by a high wall and ventilated with a fan. You can often see monkeys along the wall early in the morning. The walk to the beach or to catch a bus is about 5 min......it is10-15 min (depending how briskly you walk) if you want to rent beach chairs for the day at surfside. There is a shortcut across the canal but my mother being 85 could not manage it. It is 10 -15 minutes to a grocery store and a selection of restaurants. We especially enjoyed Drifts where you can have a drink and snacks and watch a beautiful sunset. We certainly loved every minute and we would return if we ever have the opportunity to do so! I would recommend this accommodation to anyone who wants to enjoy the best of Barbados.

The apartment has everything you need to make a comfortable relaxing holiday. The swimming pool and garden areas are kept immaculate. I would highly recommend to friends and family.
