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 most astonishing contemporary villa you could imagine. Fabulous details. 100% perfect

5 of 5
A lovely family holiday with wife and 3 grown up kids. I like to think we are discerning in our choice of venue and property. 4 gibbes glade is just like the photographs. The main room is around 12 metres by 12 metres with high ceiling and 12 metre bifolds opening completely to the enclosed private garden and pool. Two of the bedrooms also open ended onto the pool. The smallest bedroom was fabulous too. The standard of fitments and furniture is exceptional tasteful and minimalist. 10 seater hardwood dining table is fabulous yet just occupies a corner of the massive front room. Broadband sonos and flat TV looked after our entertainment. We went mainly to beaches / carlisle/ Mullins and orhers. We also went to the Gap and eat in most of the expensive restaurants. The cliff beach was our fav an Ninos by the sea the best value for money (pizza). The highlight tho was the apartment. Thank you sooo much Heather

Fantastic Villa, Wonderful Service

5 of 5
Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at GGV. The house is spacious and in immaculate condition. We spent most of our time outside in the beautiful garden and private pool. The house is about 5mins walk from the very quiet and beautiful Gibbs beach and about 10mins walk from Mullins beach. Monkeys visited the garden a couple of times when we were there which delighted everyone. The service from booking the villa through Maria, to the wonderful staff was first class throughout. Highly recommended. We hope to stay again in future.
