Location description from owner
The Barbados region
The parish of Saint James ("St. James") is an area located in the western part of the country of Barbados. Increasingly St. James is being known as the playground of the rich and famous, and haven for sun-starved tourists.
In local colloquium, St. James was known as the "Gold Coast", but due to ongoing popularity it is now referred to as the "Platinum Coast", reflective of the parishes many glitzy beach-front mansions, pristine beaches, luxury hotels and consistently high land prices. Many Barbadians say within the Platinum Coast there are as many as, 18 global billionaires own property somewhere within a 6-mile stretch of beach on the island.
The parish also has great historic significance, as it was here that the first British settlers landed in 1625. Under the authority of King James, the British claimed Barbados upon landing in St. James' present-day city of Holetown (formerly Jamestown, named after the King himself), this settlement turned Barbados into what would later be known as "Little England".
Noted for its shopping and restaurants, St. James is central to Barbados' bustling tourist industry, with historical attractions including the St. James Parish Church and the Portvale Sugar Factory - one of the few operational sugar factories on the island.
Though a haven for tourists and foreign expatriates, St. James is far from exclusive. As one of the bigger parishes, it is home to over 20,000 nationals strewn across its many districts, across various social strata. The parish is home to the prestigious Queen's College, one of the foremost schools not only in Barbados, but the Caribbean, founded over a century ago by a British plantation owner by the name of Col. Henry Drax. At its most rural, the parish's many villages (such as the seafront "Fitts Village") are abuzz with activity, near-familial camaraderie, and an active social atmosphere.
The beach at Camden Nook is white sand. It is never overcrowded. The water is a very comfortable temperature all year round. It is beautifully clear. The local people are very friendly here and you can buy some great lobster on the beach at very good prices.

“Perfect, perfect, perfect...”
We stayed here for our honeymoon and could not have asked for more. A beautiful villa, superbly maintained, in a wonderful location. We were very impressed with Andrew the property manager, but special mention must go to Rosemary the housekeeper who was an absolute gem. And her Rum Punch has to be one of our highlights!! The villa is just perfect and we enjoyed every aspect of our stay but sitting on the decking listening to the waves as the sun went down was amazing. To be able to walk directly onto the beach from the villa is soooo cool and to wander just a few minutes down the beach and be able to grab a beer was great. The villa is very private and very few people used the beach in front of us so we felt like we were in our own little piece of Heaven. We can't wait to go back!! Thanks Nick, Celia, Andrew and Rosemary - we had the best time!!!
Always great to hear nice things about the people who keep the villa at its best. Andrew is a real star as too is Rosemary. They both give it 110% and we really appreciate their efforts. It is great to hear it repeated in the test comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and we hope you come and stay with us again. Best wishes
