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.

Good size villa in great location

5 of 5
We had a wonderful 2 wk holiday in this villa. Good size rooms and kitchen well equipped enough to be able to cook and eat in when we wanted. Great location only 10 mins walk to a lovely beach, very safe for children and the fab JuJu's beach bar. A great holiday was had by all. Thankyou

Amazing home for large groups

5 of 5
What a wonderful home!! As soon as we stepped inside we knew we'd found the perfect place for our holiday. Sarah meet us, went over everything we needed to know and was amazing to have at the end of a phone should we need her. The rooms are spacious and there is ample space for everyone (we were a group of 8)....kids loved the pool (and watching the monkeys from their lilos) & my other half took advantage of the gym equipment. The supermarket, garage and beach are than 5 mins walk away and buses are frequent. If you want to explore the island there are taxi numbers at the house....Terry was great for a trip to Harrison caves, but we did agree we'd get a car next time we stay.....😁. We will be back....although one ask for our next trip is a larger fan or some AC in the living room...please. Thanks for having us, we can't wait to rebook soon. Sian x
