The Saint James Parish region
The Parish of St James on the Platinum Coast, is often referred to as the playground of the rich and famous , but it has so much more depth. It was here that the first British settlers landed in 1625, under the reign of King James and named it 'Jamestown', now latterly known as Holetown. Not only noted for its spectacular beaches, Holetown is now home to The Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, a shopping centre full of restaurants, cafes, bars and leading designer boutiques, including, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren and Burberry to mention a few. Directly opposite Limegrove you will find 1st and 2nd Street, the heart of Holetowns nightlife,not to be missed.
Holetown also has historical attractions including the St James Parish Church and the Portvale Sugar Factory, one of the few operational on the island.
For those Golfers, there are numerous world famous courses in the area including Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland and the renowned Kensington Oval for Cricket lovers. Barbados has a long association with Polo which takes place at Apes Hill and Holders. Holders also has a weekly Farmers Market every Sunday, offering amazing organic local produce and local Arts and Crafts. The area is renowned for its varied water sports to include snorkelling and diving on nearby reefs and at the Marine Park, sailing, waterskiing and jet skiing . Island tours are readily available to visit such attractions as Harrisons Cave and the local Rum Distillary.
There are fresh fish markets, within a short drive and a large supermarket in the centre of Holetown. Should you choose to not hire a car, there is a bus stop at the end of the road, to take you anywhere on the Island.

"The perfect location for chilling out and enjoying local hospitality"
Actually this was my second trip to the property, I love being near to Hole Town's excellent shops and night life ( especially Friday night and Sundays on 2nd Street).
I feel the beaches on this coastline are the best on the island with the benefit of palm trees, calm blue seas, funky beach bars and swimming off the beach to see the turtles.
There are amazing restaurants very close by....but then nothing is actually too far in any direction, so this house makes a great starting point to investigate the whole of the island.
The house is beautifully decorated and perhaps has the nicest and most private location within this development, apart for the sound of the local wildlife it is really quiet, being away from main roads.
The house has a very calming feel, possibly because of the gentle colour schemes and the thoughtful and tasteful presentation, I feel like its a bit of a home from home. Every little detail has been considered. I love the outdoor covered area which is an extension of the living space with boutique style furnishing. This lounging space takes me through from leisurely breakfast to an evening bbq.
I am going back again at the end of the year, and am really looking forward to it. One of the bonuses is that friends and family were also able to rent in neighbouring properties, which was lovely for a group holiday. The main pool and tennis court was very popular, for those feeling energetic in the sun ( not me!)
Thank you and looking forward to next time ....
