Places to Visit on Holiday to Mount Standfast, Barbados

Less than 3 kilometres to the south of Mount Standfast is the relatively busy town of Holetown. The town used to be named Jamestown but the activity of unloading and cleaning ships in a narrow channel on the outskirts of the town eventually led to the name being changed. One of the main attractions of Holetown is the Folkestone Marine Park and Museum. This centre has a wonderful artificial reef with its own sunken sea vessel which visitors can dive down to and explore. The museum also has aquariums that hold rare and fascinating examples of marine life.

On the outskirts of Holetown is the Portvale Sugar Factory which is a must-see attraction. The factory is modern and still working but it is home to the Sir Frank Hutson Sugar Museum. The old boiling houses are home to many sugar-production exhibits that were collected by an engineer, Frank Hutson. If you visit the factory during the crop season, which is January to May, you can actually see the sugar manufacturing process in full swing.

Carribean Paradise in a perfect location

5 of 5
My fiancé and I (from Toronto, Canada) stayed in the Beach Pavilion at James Bay from April 6-15, 2018. We learned of this luxury villa by way of a chance encounter with Marc Ward in July of 2017 while we were on a vacation in the south of Barbados (PJ and Marc own and operate the property). The location is absolutely perfect. It is situated on the famous gold coast of Barbados with dead west exposure, unbelievable sunsets every night and is perfectly located right in the middle between Holetown and Speightstown. The location is referred to as "The Garden" and it is within the Parish of St. James. We rented a mini moke for our 9 day stay, so were mobile to hit all the of the many great restaurants in the area, shop, site see, etc.. As far as restaurants go, The Tides, Island Plates, Da Outback, Mertons (in Moontown), Santi's and the Cliff Beach Club were among our favourites. There was a very handy fresh fish market just a 5 minute stroll along the beach to the north. We had perfect weather throughout our stay, with the only rainfall happening throughout the night, cooling things down just right. The beach pavilion has a very large deck (~ 500 sq ft) nicely laid out with a bar / cooking area, dining table and 2 comfy couches. It is literally 40 feet from the lapping, calm ocean waves! I actually slept outside a couple of nights, with the sound of the ocean waves as close as you could get. Up and down the coast, we never saw a property that was as close to the ocean as our beach pavilion. Very, very cool location really. The large outdoor shower was a nice touch too in a completely private area immediately outside the main entrance. Particularly important to mention, the property has ~ 40 coconut and palm trees, like no other within site when you are out on the ocean looking inland. I water skied frequently (Rupert was awesome - had a Malibu ski boat which was converted from a stock mid drive to a 225HP Yamaha outboard). Rupert was a great driver and was very reasonable and reliable (he operates out of the above mentioned fish market area). We met awesome people that also stayed on the property in the larger two bedroom apartments, set back from the beach pavilion. These too were great accommodations, fitting for a family of 4-6 for sure. The Ward's were great hosts, attentive, etc. and kept the property spotless. The property is very secure & safe. James Bay Luxury Villas attracts a lot of repeat customers as we will be!!

Another March Break in Paradise

5 of 5
My family and I just returned from another fantastic stay at the Monkey Hill villa in the resort of Sugar Hills in Barbados. The villa is spectacular and very well maintained. Sonia (as always) took excellent care of us. Dennis (chef) prepared 2 outstanding meals during our stay. You can see the pride the owner has is this villa in every room. Treat yourself and your family and book your next vacation here. If you go out for dinner try Hugo's which is a new restaurant on the water and close by. Enjoy!
