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.

This is a "perfect Caribbean holiday home" for friends / families / etc. You will find everything what you need at this villa. The standard of villa / interior is first class. The location is very good; quite area and just a few minutes walk to beaches. Based on this very positive experience, I/we have already done next booking of this holiday house later this year (October 2016). I can recommend this villa strongly to all other persons who are looking for a villa in this geographical location. An update will follow after our next stay in Gibbs Glade Villa (October, 2016).

The island is beautiful and the locals were all very friendly. Gorgeous apartment, very spacious and clean. It was lovely having a pool to go too as well. The other people on holiday in the apartment block were all very friendly and welcoming. Some great recomended restaurants, beaches and trips all within walking distance. I would love to visit again, and would Definately recommend to anyone wanting to visit. Thanks again :)

The villa is ideally situated near a private pool area. It sits in beautiful secure grounds, is fully equipped and homely. After a long journey we immediately felt comfortable and relaxed. The wonderful service given by the housekeeper Jean was brilliant throughout our stay. Many thanks to her and everyone at Royal Westmorland for helping to make our holiday special. We would certainly recommend this place to anyone looking to rent a popular, well appointed villa on a world class resort
