The St James Parish region
St James is widely considered as the jewel in the crown of Barbados, with unmatched white sandy beaches, hi end hotels and food that ranges from world class restaurants to makeshift food stalls serving delicious local food at very reasonable prices.
St James is a winter playground for the rich and famous. If that's your thing you can find the stars mingling among the locals who are, characteristically, cool about it.
The west coast, and St james in particular, has something for everyone. Watersports on many beaches, horse riding, polo and the farmers market at Holders, golf at Sandy Lane and Westmoreland, gully walks, stunning beaches, world class restaurants to friendly rum shacks.
Lower Carlton has the island's favourite fish seller, the famous John Moores Bar net door, St Alban's church that hugs the the coast, and a quiet stretch of beautiful beach. Bus run along the coast road every few minutes taking people length of the island, via the capital, Bridgetown.
For shoppers, Lime Grove in Holetown can offer you premium brands such as Louis Vuiton, Longines and Armani. For everyday supplies there's a supermarket in Holetwon and numerous street stalls selling fresh, locally grown fruit and veg.

"Fabulous holiday home"
The teenagers in our party thought Atelier House should feature on MTV's "Teen Cribs" program. It looks slick and gorgeous, but is also very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped with everything to make your holiday easy and relaxing. Cooking was a pleasure, and Anthony the cook was also absolutely brilliant. Cooking exactly what we wanted, when we wanted it and he genuinely cared about the food, using fresh herbs and turning out delicious meals in a relaxed manner. The beds were very comfortable and the master bedroom has the MOST amazing views. The location is quiet and peaceful, just a few minutes drive from the beach and Holetown. Wonderful views, sunsets and plenty of space for everyone to find their own corner. We will be back. Perfect for our extended family of older children and adults.

Wanted to give higher rating, not quite 5 only because when it rained we had a difficult time keeping busy, as rain usually occurred after nap time. The one TV was upstairs and not enough seating for … More
Thanks for raising these points and apologies we couldn't provide to 5 star level. We have taken on board feedback from all guests and are installing 2 extra TVs. We have also completely overhauled the wifi to mitigate against what can be a patchy service in Barbados. We will amend our listing also to clarify the situation for anyone with mobility restrictions.

"Captivating, a little different but totally enchanting....."
We had a great Easter at Atelier. A very modern and spacious villa. Long hot days with 7 occupants in a 4 bedroom 'House of Glass' sounds tight however, it was easy to find a quiet shady spo… More
Thanks for your review. Apologies that the fan broke down. I hope the portable replacement went some way to improving your night time comfort.
Thanks for the pool tip too - we should calibrate the visits with number of guests in future.

"We had a perfect time in this luxury Barabados villa"
We couldn¹t have chosen a better location or a more beautiful house for our first experience of Barbados, where we stayed for a week with another family. The house is simply stunning, a glorious, spacious and relaxing environment with cooling breezes and a stunning view from the poolside that is the ideal spot (with cocktail in hand) to view the
There is plenty of space for the children and the adults to be amply accommodated and the facilities and finishes are perfect and luxurious. It is minutes from the west coast beach, some wonderful bars and restaurants and all the amenities of the (inauspiciously named) Holetown. Standard villas are easy to find on the island, but this is a unique and lavish property to which we are already longing to return.

We stayed at Atelier House in October 2012 and the whole experience was beyond our (already high) expectations. The house was simply stunning - big, airy, light rooms, incredibly comfy beds, masses o… More
