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.

It is located on the Royal Westmorland Estate so it comes with all the benefits this brings, and it has its own lovely pool. A wonderful place to relax, unwind and recharge. Hole town, the beaches and the wonderful restaurants of the west coast are a very short drive away, so as a location it is very convenient as long as you have a car. A great place to stay, and a villa I would thoroughly recommend.

The rooms and garden/pool area are much bigger than the photographs suggest. We have all said that we would like to return to Palm Tree Villa some time. The owners should be congratulated for their endeavours to keep the property well maintained. Delightful greet and meet Julie and the staff employed to keep everything shipshape were good at what they do in the friendliest manner. Thank you Michael and Jules for the extra groceries and alcohol! Very thoughtful of you.
