The St James Parish region
Holetown was the area where the first English settlers landed and erected a fort which they called 'Plantation Fort', now the location of the Holetown Police Station.
The Holetown Monument commemorates the first English landing in Barbados in 1625 and claimed the island on behalf of King James 1.
One of the famous land mark in this parish is the St.James Anglican Church which was erected by the early settlers in 1660. The wooden building was replaced by a stone church in the late 17th century but was destroyed in the great hurricane in 1780. The church was then rebuilt using the same lower walls.
There is also Folkstone Marine Reserve which is a local park and picnic area on the beach. Take the opportunity to swim with the turtles.

Just spent the past 6 weeks at Diamond Oasis in Holetown, in the upper apartment of the beautiful home of Barbara and Desmond Braithwaite who could not have been better hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Our trip was magical.
The villa is situated in a quiet residential area. We enjoyed the morning visits of the green monkeys which were very amusing. We were honoured to be the first occupants of the new upper apartment within the grounds of their beautiful garden. The plunge pool had an attractive water feature. In the surrounding area there was a large gas barbecue, table, chairs and loungers. We used it often for cooling off after spending a day on the beach or sightseeing.
The apartment had a lounge/dining area, 2 double bedrooms each with a beautiful en suite bathroom. Kitchen was small but well equipped with good quality appliances, pots, pans, crockery, microwave, oven,dishwasher and laundry area with washer and dryer. We cooked most of our meals at home and spent many hours sitting with a sundowner on very comfortable chairs on the spacious balcony.
It is a ten minute walk to the centre of Holetown where there are many very nice restaurants at reasonable prices. Zaccios and Surfside recommended. Also a very large we'll stocked supermarket, a shopping mall at the Limegrove Centre featuring designer
Clothes, restaurants and coffee shops.
We hired a car to explore the rest of the island and were blown away by the many beautiful viewpoints and beaches. We met so many interesting people, and the locals are the most friendly and helpful that we have ever come across on our travels around the Caribbean.
We certainly would return and recommend to all our friends and family

"Great location, great hosts, great holiday!!!!"
Where do we start??? We were lucky enough to stay at the Diamond Oasis 3-24th 2013. Barbara and Desmond were fantastic hosts who were so welcoming and helped with our every needs. The apartment is spotless and full of all the mod cons. The outside area and pool is exactly like an oasis and many a day were enjoyed just lazing and enjoying a cold drink!!! The centre of Holetown/beach is approx 10 mins walk but if you require car hire or taxi, Barbara is more than willing to help. I was lucky enough to have my 50th birthday at the Diamond Oasis and Barbara and Desmond made it something to remember!!! We will be definately be booking for another great holiday in the near future.

"A real little Oasis :-)"
What a fab place to rent!
I went with 3 girl friends as a friend was getting married further up the coast. The location was fantastic and Barbara and Desmond were the best hosts we could have ever imagined. They took us to the supermarket and helped us pick out what Rum and mixers to buy :-) and they organised our vehicle rental.
We could walk to the beach, shops and bus stop really easily.
I would stay there again in a heart beat.

My husband and I rented Diamond Oasis for two weeks in September 2012. It was perfect for us. Barbara and Desmond who own the apartment were fabulous hosts, even picking us up at the airport & giving a guided tour along the coast on the way to Holetown.
The apartment was spotless and the pool area great for relaxing in the sun. The American fridge with water and ice dispenser was invaluable in the heat! There is air conditioning in both bedrooms and ceiling fans in the living areas.
It's an easy walk down into Holetown from Diamond Oasis, where there is a supermarket & chemist, restaurants, pubs & the 24hour medical centre - and the amazing beaches!. It's also easy from Holetown to explore the rest of the island...make sure you take the yellow reggae bus down the coast.
This is an excellent apartment in a great location which I would highly recommend!!
