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.

Sharon responding so quickly to my emails gave me confidence and this property did not disappoint. The photographs say it all, what you don't realise is sitting on the roof terrace watching the sunset you can hear the waves lapping, the beach is so near!! The decor, soft furnishings, towels, bedding.......all top quality!! The plunge pool is a great size and perfect for young and old. We loved having the BBQ on the terrace. Mullins Beach Bar is opposite and we enjoyed the reserved sun beds, towels and waiter service, all included with our booking. Great food and fantastic cocktails! I can highly recommend Blue Waters, and I will certainly be booking again in the very near future. Christine S

The apartment itself is very tastefully furnished, extremely well equipped, even down to a cooler bag for taking drinks to the beach! We were very well looked after by Sasha the property manager from Sothebys and Phil the housekeeper who keeps the apartment spotlessly clean. The sun terrace has views across the Sugar Hill estate to the sea and was a lovely setting for our sundowners and barbecues! Sugar Hill is a very well kept, quiet and well maintained development.The two pools (one of which is just a few steps from the apartment) are excellently maintained and for the most part we had them to ourselves! We hired a car and so had quick and easy access to the Fairmont beach and bar/cafe - the staff were welcoming and friendly and the food was very good - we ate there on several occasions. We also visited a few places on the island that we hadn't been to before: St.Nicholas Abbey (and old sugar plantation house that has been beautifully restored and where we purchased some of the rum that they now produce) and Bottom Bay, were two of the highlights. All in all we had a very relaxing and memorable vacation and will certainly be going back to Yellow Bird in the not too distant future.
