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.

Superb Location

5 of 5
We arrived just before New Year for nearly 4 weeks (only now getting around to review) Great spot for a longer stay.Very handy for Holetown but better with a car which we had for the duration of our stay.Property was spotless and had everything we needed.Ironing board was broken but was immediately replaced with a new one when reported.Rachel was a fantastic manager and the owners were extremely helpful when needed to answer any queries.Favorite restaurants were Nishi ,Tides and The Cliff Beach Club.All very expensive especially with the exchange at present.Ju Ju’s great but make sure you are not in a hurry! Beach bar at Royal Pavillion Hotel was surprisingly good value considering its 5 star status.Only downside is not being on the beach but price reflects this.Would certainly stay again.

Very Comfortable and peaceful apartment

5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at apartment 321 from 25/05/18 to 09/06/18. The whole process was very straightforward from booking. We loved the view from the balcony where we ate breakfast every morning visited by birds. The apartment was very comfortable with well supplied appliances in the kitchen, which was great as I like to cook for ourselves, although we did eat out a couple times. We shopped at Massy (just down road) which was a bit more expensive than Jordans Supermarket in Speightstown, but for convenience just what we wanted. Had everything you needed. We at at Zaccios in Holetown on beach front and the Fishpot at St Lucy (just through Speightstown and Siix Mens). We ate very cheaply at the Fishermans Pub in Speightstown. You get a lot of food for your dollar. We used the Beach House just the once. Everywhere was very clean. Thanks once again Carole for a wonderful holiday. Will certainly be coming back.
