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.

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.

The location of Little reef makes a perfect base in which to explore the island. We always felt safe anywhere on Barbados, the people are so friendly and helpful, Grantley the caretaker lives right next door and is always on hand if you need him, after we arrived Sally rang to make sure every thing was alright which was a nice touch when your in a strange place,

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
