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!

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.

As soon as we stepped inside we knew we'd found the perfect place for our holiday. Sarah meet us, went over everything we needed to know and was amazing to have at the end of a phone should we need her. The rooms are spacious and there is ample space for everyone (we were a group of 8)....kids loved the pool (and watching the monkeys from their lilos) & my other half took advantage of the gym equipment. The supermarket, garage and beach are than 5 mins walk away and buses are frequent. If you want to explore the island there are taxi numbers at the house....Terry was great for a trip to Harrison caves, but we did agree we'd get a car next time we stay.....😁. We will be back....although one ask for our next trip is a larger fan or some AC in the living room...please. Thanks for having us, we can't wait to rebook soon. Sian x

We were of various ages ranging from 19 to 60. We all loved the villa as it had lovely gardens with palm trees and beautiful flowers. it was very quiet but 10 minutes walk to the beaches and restaurants, and also the bus stop, so the best of both worlds. We also felt very safe. Sunset crest is a lovely area, which is well maintained all over, there is always a gardener somewhere keeping the gardens looking pristine. Our villa had everything we needed for a 2 week stay. Lots of games, all the bedrooms were of adequate size and all air conditioned. the kitchen was well equipped and lovely Charlene came twice a week to clean the bedding etc. The pool was an added bonus and was lovely to swim in the mornings while having breakfast. We also had monkeys and humming birds visiting us. A great bonus was the beach club pool right on the beach , we used this everyday after coming off the beach to cool down. This place is kept very clean and there is always a sunbed available and a great ice cream parlour a few doors away. Nothing is too much trouble here and everyone is very relaxed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Biflora and would recommend this villa to anyone wanting an all round great holiday in Barbados. Jo and family
