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.

It really was so spacious that there were plenty of places to go if you wanted some 'space.' There were 6 of us. Huge lounge & kitchen & good size bedrooms. Pool was great place to cool off from hot sun. And the gym equipment was a bonus for our 2 lads in their 20's. Saw monkeys regularly (if you want to feed them though, go to the Animal Reserve 20 mins away - probably one of the best things we did all holiday). The best thing about the Villa is it's location - a 5 minute walk from Holetown/the beach/Limegrove shopping centre/Supermarket - and yet so quiet & peaceful. Holetown has everything you need. We had a car for our trip, this isn't essential with everything so near, but we would recommend it for getting out & about to see this beautiful island!

Air conditioned throughout, the bedrooms are comfortable and spacious, bathrooms clean and newly refurbished and the open living area is a lovely place to escape the midday heat to read a book and relax. The kitchen comes with all of the utilities one could want (including a BBQ on the veranda), meaning dining in Sandy Lodge is as pleasant at eating out. The veranda surrounding half of the house (including a dining table and chairs) is a lovely place to sit in the evenings. The pool area is also first-rate; quiet and secluded with comfortable sun loungers and shades. Cleaners and groundskeepers visit twice a week. Sandy Lodge is walking distance to some fantastic bars and restaurants (JuJu’s Beach bar for a sun-downer, Lone Star for a delicious meal or the Golden Anchor for a Banks beer and a pub quiz), making this the perfect base from which to explore everything the west coast has to offer. A short bus ride or 20 minute walk takes you to Holetown where more bars and restaurants can be found, along with a well-stocked supermarket and a luxury shopping mall.

Stunning apartment, everything has been thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The location couldn't be any better for us a we like our walks, your 5 mins from the beach & 10 mins from the beautiful golf course. A large supermarket is also just 5 mins from the apartment. Plenty of restaurants & bars to choose from all within walking distance. We have booked to go again twice next year which says it all. Huge thank you to the owners whose personal touches made this our best holiday yet. Helen
