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.

Apples - Spending a beautiful week in paradise

5 of 5
Our family arrived to the very friendly face of Harry who showed us around this beautiful home with it's stunning views. We were all astonished just how beautiful the house and views were and unless seen, words can't really describe it adequately enough. Seeing is believing! The pool was a huge success with our young grandchildren and we spend many hours playing in it. The house is very comfortable and homely with everything to make any vacation relaxing and memorable. Harry was around to tend to all our needs and a real help. We would thoroughly recommend anyone booking to spend a holiday in Barbados at Apples House. We didn't want to leave!!!

A perfect little corner in paradise!

5 of 5
What a gem of a find! We love Holetown and always aim to stay in the area and prefer to self cater. The moment we booked this villa on HomeAway and we got the lovely welcome message from Heather the owner I knew we had made the right decision. We are a family of 3 and the villa was perfectly situated for all our favourite spots yet set back from the main road so it was peaceful, homely and relaxing. The villa itself is spacious, well-maintained and very well equipped - particularly the kitchen and the thoughtful provision of beach towels, which helps when packing! We enjoyed using the communal pool and tennis courts and I couldn’t get my daughter out of the dip pool in the back garden! The managing agent who met us on arrival was welcoming and knowledgable and very responsive when we had an issue with the satellite TV after a power cut. We even met some of the friendly neighbours, such a wonderful community feel. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again, it is all you can ask for in a self catering rental, truly a home from home. We only wish we could afford one of our own!
