Recent St. James reviews

  • Wonderful space, lovely pool!

    "We stayed here for 10 weeks in Autumn, having never been to Barbados before and not knowing much about the various neighbourhoods. We are very glad that we stayed here. The house is in a great location - 5 mins' walk to the supermarket and other shopping and wonderful restaurants in Holetown. Listing description was very accurate and furnishings are lovely. Two of the three bedrooms are huge and the third is fine too. All bedrooms have great storage. The outdoor space is also great - sitting areas at the front and the back are great for reading, drinks, etc. We also realised how nice it was to have en-suite bathrooms for each bedroom when we had guests and they could have their own space! And the pool was a joy - used every single day, even when it rained! Not sure what other reviewers are talking about in terms of cleaning and gardening. We thought the care of the property was first-rate and Mrs. Carter, who is close by, was wonderfully responsive when we needed assistance. We would definitely recommend this property to those looking for a convenient, comfortable, well-located and spacious accommodation. We hope to return next year!"

  • Wonderful birthday week with family

    "My sisters and I rented this townhome for our celebration of my 50th birthday in Barbados and we enjoyed it tremendously. We rented a car and had difficulty finding the unit but the friendly residents in Barbados offered to call Maureen and actually have us follow them to the unit. Maureen was very helpful in getting us keys and information on the unit. It was clean and well furnished. The location is great, with the beach just across the road which had rental chairs and umbrellas, the bus stop where we rode the yellow buses was within walking distance, great restaurants and food. The plunge pool was great to cool off. Our favorite restaurant was the Tides in Holetown which offered excellent food and service. Overall I don't think I can say anything bad, our time here was wizzo (fabulous)."

  • Lovely stay at De Hideaway

    "We spent a pleasant two weeks at De Hideaway in January, 2014. We had read the reviews and seen the pictures and were happy to find all exactly as advertised. DH is huge, spotlessly clean, well equipped and wide open to Barbados’ beautiful sunny weather. The house fronts onto a very quiet, cul-de-sac and backs onto a deep, tropical forest complete with a resident troupe of monkeys that will wake you up in the morning using the roof above your bedroom as a shortcut between trees. Lots of fun. The entire length of the living room, dining room and kitchen is fitted with louvered, folding doors that open completely to the outside. You can jump directly into the pool from inside the living room. The pool is as nice as it looks in the pictures and is professionally maintained to a high standard. The entire back deck and pool are completely private so that you can refresh yourself in the pool any way you like with confidence that you are alone . . . just you and the monkeys. With its four large bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and huge living area, this house is suitable for groups of four to six people. More might make it a bit crowded. Bobby was at the house when we arrived to show us around and make sure we knew where everything was and how to contact her if necessary. We did on one occasion (we chose text) and she responded with the answer to our question within a few minutes. Bobby checked in with us once during our two weeks to make sure all was well. Do you need a car? The house really is only a few minutes from shopping, banks and the beach. We timed it walking: seven minutes to town and ten minutes (uphill) back. Unfortunately, the walk is on a busy road with poor accommodation for pedestrians. We felt better about going to town after our rental car arrived and would recommend you rent a car for your stay at DH. Car rental rates are very reasonable and having one available puts all of Barbados at your disposal. We recommend you ask Bobby to arrange a car for you. Internet connection? Wi-Fi signal is good throughout the property and on the deck. Food and kitchen: There’s good grocery shopping just down the hill from the house at a large, Superstore. De Hideaway’s kitchen is large with modern appliances and two, full size refrigerators. Dine in the kitchen, in the dining room or outside on the back deck. All are pleasant. When you tire of cooking, there are ten good restaurants within easy walking distance."

  • Wonderful holiday

    "We really enjoyed our holiday here and have booked to return next year. The location is ideal as the building adjoins a beautiful beach with calm sea and good walks.Beach chairs are always available to guests. Shops, restaurants and bus stops are just a few minutes walk away. The veranda is cool and private with a view of the well kept gardens and the sea. It is very pleasant to sit there in the comfortable chairs (with foot-stools!) Water sports and boat trips are are available from the beach provided in a friendly and efficient way. A very pleasant atmosphere created by the people that live and work there completes the temptation to call this "paradise.""
