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.

                                                              What more can we say other than the apartment was stunning and the pictures just do not do it justice,....... You have to be there to appreciate just how amazing this place really is. You will want for nothing if you choose to stay here. Everything is perfect and Paula the Housekeeper cannot do enough for you. It was spotless from the minute we arrived to the minute we left and nothing was too much trouble for her. Simon the Property Manager was there to meet and greet us and is clearly a major asset and again was on hand if you needed him. If you are visiting the Island for the first time then you don't really need to have a car as the location is perfect with everything you could need so accessible. To sum up " not too shabby" that's for sure !!!

                                                              We had such a good week! The house is as described; everything you needed there; clean and well maintained. The manager and housekeeper were so friendly and welcoming. We had one traditional meal cooked for us on our first night which was delicious. Also enjoyed BBQing fresh fish by the pool. Also ate at Ju-Ju's - I recommend the barracuda! And a rum punch both there and at Mullins Beach at sunset. The beach is just a few minutes walk away - perfect for an early morning swim. Other highlight - watching the monkeys collect mangos in the garden from the veranda; Everything so comfortable - house lovely and cool, veranda shady - the perfect spot!

                                                              Beautifully furnished house in a great location

                                                              We stayed in this beautifully furnished house in Feb/March 2016 for 2 weeks. It is a great location - only a 5 minute walk from Mullins Beach. The house is very well equipped. The pool area is great as well and we were the only ones using it! We used the supermarket at Chattel Village and there is also a small shop at the Petrol Station at the bottom of the road. I would suggest that you book in advance restaurants and another tip ask for a sea view table. The house is located equal distance from Holetown and Speights Town. The bus service on the island is great and very cheap. There is a bus stop opposite Mullins. I would really recommend this house and cant wait for our return visit.
