Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in St James, Barbados your home away from home

Saint James (St James) is a world class destination for sun worshipers, and is the gem of Barbados’ prolific tourist industry. Located in the west of Barbados, the Parish of St James is known locally as the ‘platinum coast’ due to its popularity with the rich and famous and the exquisite and luxury villas in St James which have sprung up. St James, or more exactly, the town of Holetown, was the spot where British settlers first landed in Barbados.

Things to do in St James, Barbados

Whilst many people take a self catering St James holiday villa for the extensive, idyllic beaches, there are many activities to enjoy, delicacies to sample and sights to see. While beach lovers and sun worshipers will simply be in their version of heaven, family members or partners can be endlessly entertained with the huge range of leisure activities on offer. A St James villa will give you excellent access to extensive hiking, horse riding, paragliding, sky diving, rock climbing, 4x4 driving and motor cross, golf and a massive range of water sports.

In the crystal clear waters which surround Barbados, kayaking, sailing, swimming, water skiing, wakeboarding and windsurfing are very popular, but the two sports which really are special activities to enjoy from a St James villa are scuba diving and fishing.

Every February, the British landing in Holetown is celebrated with an entire week of partying, starting at Holetown Monument, with free concerts on the beach, a military tattoo and huge, elaborate markets selling the best produce and crafts Barbados has to offer, beauty contests, sports displays and an antique car display. The week of the celebration is a magnificent time to take an apartment or villa in St James.

El Vista is self catering at its best.

5 of 5
El Vista is a lovely apartment , its very clean and very comfortable , fully equipped with everything you could need for a self catering holiday , in fact you could say home from home. The bedrooms are air-conditioned which makes it very comfortable of a night time, theres a safe deposit box and wifi all included at no extra cost. Beautiful view from the patio , with a view of the sea and a view of the wooded area where if your lucky you might see a green monkey or two , as we did , very peaceful and quiet location apart from the occasional car that passes on the road beside the property but that wasn't an issue with us. The local beach is idilic with crystal clear water and white sand , its very safe for swimming and snorkelling with a coral reef just a short swim from the shore that is populated by lots of colourful marine fish , the beach is mainly used by a handful of friendly locals and has a small sandy carpark if you drive there. Shopping for food and provisions wasn’t a problem as there is several supermarkets a stones show away , the local store is at the bottom of the road in walking distance , although for the bigger ones a car is probably needed . Communications with the owners was second to none , we was in touch with them every step of the way and once we arrived in Barbados that continued with the help given by Rachel the property manageress . All in all we couldn’t fault this apartment and would definitely recommend to others and definitely stay again ourselves should the opportunity arise .
