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's in a great location of only a 10 minute walk to Holetown and the beach. The accommodation itself was fantastic with great living/dining facilities and 2 really good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. The apartment was clean and cool at all times and Agnes the housekeeper was very sweet and helpful. The apartment also offered 2 outside balcony/patio areas to help us relax and unwind on not only our holiday but also our honeymoon. As we had our wedding out in Barbados we had lots of guests come to the apartment for meals and drinks and would also like to stay within the complex and book the apartment we stayed in. My dad also stayed in an apartment within the complex recommended by Joan and he's looking to book again. Myself and now husband are also looking at booking Barbados for next year and we will be in contact for Ixora Apartments 100% excellent.

We were met by the sister of the apartment owner, who had waited very patiently for an hour after we were delayed at the airport. She showed us the apartment which was bright and cheerful, and had obviously been updated and refurbished recently. The owner had left a generous welcome pack of basics which was a very nice touch after a long journey. Our only problem was, that the 2 weeks went too quickly! We may have to book a month the next time!! Ian + Marie

The location is great – completely private and quiet but within easy reach of everything you might require. It’s a 5 minute walk to the ultimate postcard beach (with very few people on it!), 1 minute walk from a bus stop (with frequent buses to Holetown, Speighstown and Bridgetown at 2 Bagan dollars a ride) and a 15 minute walk to Holetown (restaurants and shacks line the road en route, so there is always a meal available if you can’t be bothered to cook! Your closest supermarket is here). We ate out a lot as supermarket goods are expensive unless they are made on the Island (for example, milk is £4 a pint, but rum is £12 a litre… Needless to say we drank a lot of rum!). The villa is chic, airy and has excellent facilities (air con, super modern bathrooms, well-appointed kitchen, comfy beds, plenty of towels etc.). A real benefit to the place was the large flexible downstairs living space, which opened out onto the pool. We had some lovely indoor/outdoor meals under cover out the midday sun, whilst still enjoying nature around us (we spotted Monkeys on a couple of days). There is also a gorgeous terrace off the master bedroom, ideal for if you fall out with your family… I wouldn’t hesitate to go back, Barbados is such a wonderful place and the accommodation really made it for us. You will see us again!
