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.

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.

Dealing with Cristina when arranging our stay went smoothly. The apartment was immaculate and what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. It was spacious, light and airy. The location for Glitter Bay is perfect, no hassle to just stroll down to the pool and gorgeous beach area where sunbeds are readily available. The snack bar was unfortunately shut for most of our stay, opening only on the last day, however it was open for drinks. This was not a huge issue as we just walked along the beach to the Fairmont next door or lonestar for breakfast as well as staying in for breakfast on a couple of days. There are plenty of restaurants to go to in the area for a slap up meal or just something quick and easy. Bus stop right outside or taxis are easy to order. There are tennis courts in the grounds but I would suggest taking your own balls as the ones provided were not very bouncy. A great holiday and we would consider staying in this apartment again.
