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.

Much more than it says on the tin!

If you are searching through the hundreds of properties in Barbados and you come across 4 Porters Gate then do not hesitate to book. The description of this house is absolutely correct, from location to content. From the minute we booked I felt this was the right choice. Every correspondence with Heather made me feel even more convinced that we had chosen the right place. The house is very well cared for with absolutely everything you would need to self cater. The outside space is a tranquil haven, the furniture is comfortable as are the beds which are complete with very good quality linen. The en-suites all have fantastic showers with towels you would be delighted with in your own home never mind a holiday rental. Its safe, secure, private and very central. We were welcomed by Kerrie the property manager who had the house staged like something from Homes and Gardens and to be honest after a long flight the sight of candles burning around the plunge pool and a welcome bottle of Fizz awaiting was exactly what your tired eyes needed. We had a fantastic first time in Barbados made extra special by the quality and location of our accommodation. Thank you once again Heather for taking care of all our needs and going the extra mile. Neil' Emil Di and Roger.

The perfect place to be

5 of 5
Just spent 7 glorious days in one of the studio apartments. The beds were comfy, the apartment immaculate and the garden private and peaceful. The perfect location - close to the beach, full use of the Beach Club pool and within walking distance of the supermarket, shops and restaurants. If you want to venture further afield, buses stop over the road; the yellow reggae buses being our personal favourites.
