  • Wonderful apartment in a peaceful area

    "We had a fantastic two weeks at this beautifully furnished and very spacious apartment. The residential street where it is located is very quiet and the beach is very close by. There is no night life but a couple of restaurants are within walking distance as is the Crane Resort. Everything is supplied including dishwasher and laundry detergent (no food) and the kitchen has all the cooking utensils you could want. A car is not necessary unless you want to go sightseeing, but even then you could take a taxi and have the driver do a tour for you."

  • Stayed in March 2014

    "Best rental stay we have made. Trevor was gracious enough to pick us up on Saturday night and give us a quick tour so we could get our bearings. Maria`s rum punch was poured as soon as our bags were dropped and then we went straight to the gap , a short 2-3 minute walk. Excellent location close to the bars and restaurants of the Gap with easy Bus route access for getting around the island. The use of a local cell phone and landline while on the island was an excellent bonus.Wireless also good for internet to check out and make reservations for excursions restaurants etc etc. Trevor was there on Sunday to see us off. Although on the main road and close to the Gap we slept with no problems.Probably the rum punch along with the hum of the AC and fans kept us in dream land. Would reccommend this apartment to anyone for location and Trevor and Maria`s great hospitality. I hope the Brazil airline keeps the service running so we can return again soon."

  • Perfect Getaway!

    "A group of us stayed at Rabbit Hill over the holiday break this year and had such a fantastic time! The property was everything we could have imagined, and just as described--actually, even better! We stayed for a week and Agnes (property manager) and Winston (grounds keeper) were very helpful and went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. They brought us fresh fruit from the property upon our arrival and Winston cracked coconuts for us each morning he was there so we could have fresh coconut water. Amazing! Most days we went out exploring the island to see all it has to offer, which is a lot! But we were very happy to come home to the serene east coast and Rabbit Hill every evening. Most evenings we made big meals and spent time out on the porch conversing about our adventures that day. Upon the owner's recommendation we had a local woman, by the name of Angela, come and cook us an authentic Bajan meal one night.. and it was absolutely delicious and completely worth it! We all found Barbados to be a spectacular island. For anyone who tends to get a bit nervous traveling internationally and to new cultures (like myself!), Barbados is a great place to visit because the island is filled with really friendly people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Our whole group was in agreement that if we hadn't stayed at Rabbit Hill, we probably wouldn't have experienced even half of what we experienced on the island. It was our entire group's first time to Barbados and everyone had such an amazing time that on the last day we were all in very solemn moods because we had to leave and go back to our regular lives. We will DEFINITELY be going back to Rabbit Hill again soon.. hopefully for 2 weeks next time!!"

The parish of St. James has a rich history, dating back to 1625 when the first British settlers arrived. The city of Holetown was originally known as Jamestown in honor of the King. It is the oldest town on Barbados. The original inhabitants consisted of 50 settlers and 10 slaves. With an abundance of restaurants and great shopping, the area around St. James villas is the heart of the tourist area. Here, visitors can explore one of the few remaining working sugar factories at Portvale Sugar Factory and the historic St. James Parish Church. This church is on one of the oldest consecrated pieces of land on the island and is known as "God’s acre." A church has stood on this site since 1628, and visitors may enjoy a wander through the graveyard to see the resting place of many of the original British settlers. Visitors to St. James rentals will find a beautiful area, with a very social atmosphere.

Certainly, the main attraction of St. James is the beaches.
