Make a holiday rental home or villa in St Thomas, Caribbean your home away from home

The parish of St Thomas, Barbados, not to be confused with the US Virgin Island of St Thomas, Caribbean, is the central parish of the island. St Thomas is little visited by the crowds which often blight the more popular coastal regions, providing visitors with an unrivalled insight into Barbadian life, and the stunning countryside that makes up the Caribbean’s finest island.

Things to do in St Thomas, Barbados

One of Barbados’ most famous and awe-inspiring attractions lies right in the heart of St Thomas. Harrison’s Cave is a colossal cavern and network of caves, which contain an incredible range of sights, from enormous stalactites and stalagmites to deep emerald coloured pools. There are regular guided tours of Harrison’s Cave, with an electronic tram taking astounded visitors deep into the caves, right down to the spectacular underground waterfall which never fails to amaze.

Nature lovers will be absolutely delighted with the prospect of staying in St Thomas accommodation, as the tropical conditions allow life to flourish for all types of animal and plant species. The Welchman Hall Gully, as well as being a naturally stunning setting, is also home to many species. Stretching for almost a mile, the gully is truly enchanting, with tropical plants adorning the collapsed cave network which created Welchman Hall. Green Monkeys are especially numerous here. The Highlands of Barbados are a particularly popular site for walking, cycling and horse riding in Barbados, facilities and guides for which are readily available.

Polo has become hugely popular in Barbados, and St Thomas is one of the parishes in which polo has really taken hold. Lessons can be arranged at many of the stables, but if you would prefer to enjoy the sport as a spectator, you shall not want for opportunities from a holiday rental villa in St Thomas, Barbados. Cricket is a hugely important part of life in the area too, and any cricketers heading to Barbados will be perfectly placed for both spectating and playing in the Caribbean sun.

Places to visit in St Thomas, Barbados

Of course, a holiday to Barbados would not be complete without at least a day stretched out on the exotic, white sand beaches the island has become famed for. A villa in St Thomas is just a 10 minute drive from the world famous beaches of the West Coast, where the beach life thrives. The numerous water sports you can enjoy along the West Coast are world class, with deep sea fishing rating among the best in the world, whilst sailing, surfing, scuba diving and windsurfing holidays are absolutely sensational.

Climate in St Thomas, Barbados

The climate in St Thomas is wonderfully steady, and wonderfully mild. Temperatures in the heart of the island are a little cooler than conditions along the coast, with average monthly temperatures remaining between 24 and 29°C throughout the year.

Cheap flights to St Thomas, Barbados

Barbados’ Grantley Adams Airport (BGI) is just 10 miles from the heart of St Thomas, Barbados. Thankfully, there are regular, direct flights from London, which take just under 8 hours. British Airways provide the majority of services, and when you can be settling into a holiday rental in St Thomas within 10 hours of leaving home, why endure another minute of the British winter?

                                                                  On arrival the apartment surpassed our expectations, it was very well presented, spacious and well equipped. The apartment has two terraced areas, one of which is an Al fresco dining terrace, having breakfast there was a delight it overlooks one of two pools and the beautifully kept tropical gardens but the real gem was the stylishly furnished roof terrace which has a glimpse of the Caribbean sea, spent many a night up there with a glass or two of red. "Happy nights". The location of the apartment is excellent, it is only a five minute drive into Hole town which offers plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and is only about a 15 minute drive to Bridgetown. I can not recommend this apartment highly enough and would not hesitate to stay there again. The whole process of booking the apartment was made very easily, many thanks goes to Paula always quick in responding to any queries.

                                                                  We rented out both the 3 bed bungalow and the 2 bed house, I did a review for both as one package already. This review is for the 3 bed bungalow. The property was perfect for us as 2 members of the group needed a property which offered disability assistance with respect to stairs, parking, etc. The bungalow offered all the facilities we require. The rental plot was perfect for us, lovely gardens, pool and location. The caretaker who looked after us was very helpful and was always their when needed. Property was clean and well-maintained and the owner provided and excellent service. Rental value was ver good. We will be pleased to use it again
