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.

The apartment is lovely but needs a little updating, but overall it was a good place to stay, beds best we have ever slept on. Views fantastic from patio, bit of noise from the adjacent road but overall great place to stay. A car is necessary if you don't wish to walk uphill to the apartment . Everyone around very friendly and felt safe. Elma and Tony very reponsive to emails, Would definitely stay again, we loved the morning show from the monkeys and little birds who joined us for breakfast.

The new staff were very friendly, reliable & efficient. The owner was very helpful & kept in touch to make sure everything was running smoothly at the house. We loved it & will be going back next year.

A short hop to Mullins bar a must on Sunday afternoon and Bombas bar / restaurant great food and atmosphere. Weston fish market just down the road fresh fish straight off the boats and so reasonable, try the Mahi Mahi. Thank you Pat.
