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.

5 Porters Court- OUTSTANDING!

5 of 5
The villa @ 5 Porters Court was everything we could have hoped for. Perfect for our stay w/ 2 adults and 2 teens. The villa was comfortable, spotlessly clean and well appointed. All appliances, kitchen utensils, cookware was of quality and fully stocked for our stay. Tracy had the fridge stocked as well w/ bread, milk, juice, eggs, beer & wine when we arrived. The bedrooms were super comfy! The furniture in the living room appears to be brand new. The location is just off the pool and the porch w/ dining table was lovely. The location for us was perfect. Just outside of the gate are the bus stops for both north (Speightstown) and south (Holetown & Bridgetown) The Fairmont Royal Pavilion (w/ beach passes provided) is across the road and provides a beautiful beach w/ sun loungers. Tracy was both extremely professional, timely w/ corespondents and caring of all aspects of our trip. Our family wanted for nothing. We highly recommend the villa at 5 Porters Court and look forward to our return visits.

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Barbados staying at new moon villa. We were a group of 8 adults and the property fully met our needs. A few things could do with updating I.e the water pressure in all bathrooms needs looking at. A proper wardrobe in the room that is classed as the kids room would be good. Long hanging space in every wardrobe for the ladies would be good. Ann was fantastic, couldn't do enough for you, super lovely lady. Andrew was very helpful and proactive in making sure We were all ok. We had an amazing time. For those looking for goods days out highly recommend cool runnings and a day at the races. Also highly recommend bombas restaurant at Mullins. Woukd definetly return.
