Recent Barbados reviews

  • A picture perfect place for your home base while visiting Barbados

    "We chose This charming place for our stay in Barbados based on the reviews we read on VRBO and it did indeed meet all that was promised. It is very well appointed to meet all our needs, a comfortable bed, kitchen utensils galore and a most helpful owner (easily accessible by email) along with friendly staff and guests and/or owners in other units. This was a delightful place to stay for our Barbados visit – beautiful views, swimming in warm clear water, meals on either the front or back patio depending on where the sun was, easy walking distance to pick up basic supplies or to catch a ZR bus further afield. We highly recommend this property for couples (with or without a car) as your base from which to enjoy Barbados."

  • Wow!!!! 11 out of 10!!!

    "I stayed in apartment 3 at Rosalie with my three friends for two weeks and fell in love with everything about this place!!! From eating breakfast overlooking the breathtaking ocean view to making the yummiest breakfast in my dream kitchen while bumping the bajan beats on the super bass sound system located in the apartment!! :) When we did decide to sleep, each of the four bedrooms had the most comfortable beds and the rooms were immaculately clean with a fully functioning air conditioning system. The location was fantastic in easy reach of Miami beach and down the road from Oistins and St Lawrence Gap. Lisa and Diane, the domestics, were lovely and very helpful and made us feel right at home. Overall, I would return to Rosalie in a heartbeat and found it very emotional when it was time to leave as it felt like a home away from home. Apartment 3 easily contributed to making this vacation one of a kind and one that the four of us will never forget!!!! Lots of love from, Natalie, Yeliz, Sharene & Sema"

  • Christmas getaway!!

    "My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon and first Christmas in Barbados at the Muskoka Cottage. We can't say enough good things about our vacation to Barbados and this includes our accommodations. This cottage was a perfect one bedroom getaway that was close to everything you need, while still offering quiet privacy. The most amazing part is how close it is to some of the most beautiful beaches. This is the perfect spot to stay. Steven, the owner, was a great help with any questions you have and an all around great host. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!"

  • Home away from home!

    "We absolutely enjoyed our stay in Barbados. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and checked up on us to make sure that we were ok and had all that we needed. The first thing that stands out about this vacation home is that it's surrounded by a beautiful garden! There is a parking space for a car if you choose to rent a vehicle. The interior is very clean, comfortable and cozy. We loved that it's self contained and we could make our own meals if so desired. Having the laundry facilities at our disposal was great! Location, location, location; within walking distance to the beach, grocery, bars, restaurants and one of the south coast's favourite spots....St. Lawrence Gap! I highly recommend this vacation spot to anyone who's looking for a totally relaxed time in Barbados. C & D"

Swim with the Giant Sea Turtles Near Your St. James Beach Rentals

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. The miles of bright white sand and crystal clear waters provide visitors with the island’s best beaches within easy reach of St. James vacation rentals. Those who enjoy swimming and snorkeling will want to try both Mullins and Heywood beaches. Here, visitors will find a wealth of marine life with tropical fish such as barracuda and giant sea turtles. Both beaches have a variety of cafes and snack shacks along the beach.
