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.

Just lovely. Ideal location. Clean. Great owner who really wants you to enjoy ypur stay

5 of 5
Lovely apartment. Fully kitted out with everything you will need. Teresa very very welcoming. Ignore the front of the building. Once inside apartment 226 and you see the gardens and pool all is well. Ideally placed for Holetown. Lovely restaurants and beaches nearby. We hired a car as we wanted to see the island ...we used to live in Barbados so wanted to visit old haunts. But if don't want to hire a car plenty on your doorstep. The bed in 226 is the most comfortable I've ever slept in. AC in bedroom. Lots of hotwater. I cant really fault the apartment. Go there and enjoy. Thanks Teresa.

Lovely apartment in a quiet spot.

5 of 5
Have just returned with my family of four from ' Gone to the beach' after 10 days. The apartment is wonderful with all the kitchen equipment you need and very comfortable bedrooms with air conditioning. All towels including beach towels and plunge pool towels were provided which saved valuable suitcase space! The terrace area is gorgeous with lovely views and a cooling plunge pool. I sat and had breakfast here and listened to the birds ( saw hummingbirds) and also lizards. Just a 10 minute walk to Reeds Bay and John Moores bar and a couple of restaurants. We had the barbecue at Carltons Variety store. The owner is very nice and friendly. We tried the Outback too which is 10 mins stroll down the road. Lovely food, environment and friendly staff. We were picked up and dropped of by Lloyde from the airport and arranged car hire with him for 3 days. The rest of the time we caught the ' Reggae bus' which was cheap. We did have one ' hair raising' experience on one of them as the driver was not hanging around! Great communication from Rachel and Pat and enjoyed our stay very much. Would Recommend.
