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.

The apartment really is a gem. On two floors, it is contemporary in design and not only beautifully furnished inside but also to the upper and lower large patio areas. We chose to dine in local restaurants but for those looking for a self catering holiday it contains every amenity. My only criticism being English is I think Joan should have forewarned us to take electrical adapters. For those who do not to hire a hire car the apartment centrally located and only a short 7/8 mins. walk to shops/restaurants in Holetown and the nearest beaches. In essence, this is an absolutely lovely, highly recommended apartment

Carlton was always extremely helpful and proactive with any problems we had. Our cleaner Peggy was also very kind and helpful and we have no negatives to report. The air conditioning always worked very well which was great as at the time we went the weather was very humid. We liked our stay so much we hope to return in 2019.
