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

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.

It was lovely and spacious with a beautiful veranda that over looks some fantastic breath taking sea view. The bedrooms was comfortable and clean including the overall apartment. The pool was easy for us to get too and below the apartment which was ideal especially if you wanted to take a rest from the beach which was only minutes from our stay. And if you wanted to site see and take a trip to the many shops the bus stop is just outside the apartment. Agnes who maintained the apartment was very polite and helpful also. All in all our stay was pleasant and I will return in the near future. Thank you Joan for letting us stay at your wonderful apartment. From Sherina and family in London

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    This has been our fifth stay in various parts of Barbados, but the first on Sugar Hill. On entering the apartment you can immediately relax because everything is exactly as described and shown in the pictures, and you know at once you have chosen the right place. So I won’t go into detail as you can trust the description and images 100%. What the images can’t adequately convey, though, is the beauty, tranquility and serenity of the landscaped park-like grounds, which you can enjoy from the large roof terrace, which offers a glimpse of the ocean and is as perfect for watching the sun rise in the morning as for star-gazing at night; or the balcony, where you can have your meals with the palm trees swaying in front of you. This is also the lovely view you will wake up to each morning. The interior layout is well-planned and we also chose Yellowbird because, unlike other properties, it has A/C in the bed- and living-room. Thanks to the added outdoor spaces, though, you can spend all your waking hours outside, which is perfect. The grounds and the larger pool facing the sea are stunning; the pool directly below the apartment was perfect for relaxing. As August is the low season, everything was really quiet and easy-going, with just a few families enjoying their stay as much as we were. The housekeeper, who comes twice a week, keeps everything absolutely spotless; there is a great supply of high-quality linen and (pool) towels; and the kitchen is probably better stocked than ours at home. Being on an island you naturally want to enjoy the beach and watersports, and that is why I would choose Sugar Hill over other communities, as staying in Yellowbird comes with membership in the Royal Fairmont beach club, which is arguably on one of the loveliest stretches of the beautiful West Coast: adjacent to Glitter Bay with its clear, turquoise water and powdery sand, where you can actually watch turtles hatch. There are enough sunbeds and umbrellas, so it never felt crowded, and the sunsets are picture perfect and difficult to say good-bye to after three weeks. Communication with Kate and her property management team was efficient and reliable from the start; the fridge was stocked with the groceries we had asked for; and our request for a late-checkout was kindly granted as no other guests were expected on the day of our departure. So everything went smoothly from the minute I sent Kate the first request, which I hope will not have been our last.

The owner is very contactable and friendly. The property feels high quality and is very safe, with good security. There are lots of things to do and the location is excellent.
