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.

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.

The villa is gorgeous, very spacious, with lovely size pool and garden area (the only thing that I would add personally is an outdoor seating area - they had an eight seater dining table but if you're spending your evening outside by the pool, would have been nice to have something comfier). They did have a lovely suite on the upstairs rear balcony, and 2 Muskoka chairs on the upstairs front balcony. Tons of room for our party of 9, and besides a very small hiccup on our arrival which was quickly resolved we had an awesome stay (Heather the house manager lives directly across the road, just in case of any emergencies/questions) and all communications with Bruce prior to and during our stay were answered promptly. Villa location was perfect, having been to Barbados on many previous occasions we knew the area very well. Villa offered two shortcuts to the beach, one to Gibbs Beach which is idyllic and the other to Mullins Beach which is busier, with lots of watersports on offer and water play area for kids. We never hired a car nor had to order many taxis, as we took either one of the short-cuts and jumped the bus into Holetown or Speightstown. Our favorite eats this visit where Ninos by the Sea (Speightown) Santi (next to Lone Star) great food, great location overlooking beach with sunbeds, Lone Star for special occasion dinner, and Bar Carizma (Holetown) for tapas night with entertainment. Didn't make it to Bombas Beach Bar (will save that one for the next visit). Highly recommend the villa to anyone thinking of enjoying the best of what Barbados has to offer, you won't regret it. The only thing I regret, is having to come home! Thanks Bruce and team for a wonderful stay :)

The villa is ideally situated near a private pool area. It sits in beautiful secure grounds, is fully equipped and homely. After a long journey we immediately felt comfortable and relaxed. The wonderful service given by the housekeeper Jean was brilliant throughout our stay. Many thanks to her and everyone at Royal Westmorland for helping to make our holiday special. We would certainly recommend this place to anyone looking to rent a popular, well appointed villa on a world class resort

The house is extremely comfortable and in an excellent location with so much space inside and outside on various balconies and terraces. There were 5 of us and my daughters spend big part of their days revising for their upcoming school exams and always found plenty of space to do their individual studying. On other occasions when we had fish barbecues the big terrace off the main living room was fantastic for family lunches and dinners. Everything functioned perfectly, with good A/C and high speed wifi in addition to a well equipped kitchen. However the biggest contribution to our wonderful stay was made by two lovely ladies: Sophie and Leslie. Sophie looked after us in every possible way from organising our car hire to bringing us BBQ lighter and checking on us when there was a small fire in the neighbourhood. Leslie was the most wonderful and cheerful housekeeper we ever came across, always happy and smiling and extremely friendly and kind to my children, keeping the house in perfect order. We regret not being able to have her cook for us while we were there as we had too much choice in delicious restaurants but will book her well in advance next time we come. We enjoyed our stay so much that we looked straight away to come back next April but there was no availability so we will be keeping an eye on the time when our holidays can match their availability and definitely come back
