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.

Spacious, wide open views and large private terrace. Sun loungers and shades set out on the beach every morning, staff are excellent and the apartment is well equipped with all the comforts you would expect of a high quality hotel. The owner Alan was a pleasure to deal with and accommodated all our requests, there is on island property management which makes sure everything happens easily. Housekeeper Sharon kept the place beautiful. Stay here! Great building and the best unit.

We go to Barbados regularly and I have to say this villa is fabulous in a fantastic location. It is so spacious inside and out that with 7 of us it couldn't have been better . Bruce is very quick to respond to any issues of which we only had 1. And heather the property manager was very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back and all our friends who came to celebrate are planning trips back to the villa with their family's too.
