  • Best time EVER!!!

    "I was in the studio apt. for 2 weeks. It is just as pictured, clean, comfy, and quaint. Donna and Ann are super sweet. Locals are very nice. The Yellow Bus is a thrill ride, so for only $1 US, you can go most anywhere and experience a major thrill. Walking distance to most everything, fish market is great with a fabulous selection. Will definitely be back!"

  • Beautiful in Barbados!

    "My family stayed at Dunworkin' for two weeks in June. From the initial contact Steve and Severine were excellent hosts providing information about their cottage and car rentals and answering all our questions. They were there if we needed but in no way intruded on our stay. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived and is as described with everything you need; a complete kitchen, lots of towels, comfortable beds, a huge barbeque, beautiful views from the front porch, fast internet and a wonderful shower. Severine provided fresh sheets half way through our visit although there was a washing machine there too. We found it private, peaceful and tranquil, and in such a beautiful, well maintained setting which helped us relax, unwind and enjoy a true holiday. The fenced yard would be perfect for younger children with clean sand and play equipment. We awoke each morning to the sunrise and the cool ocean breezes - never once were we too hot. The beach in front of the cottage was perfect for a nice dip and we were in it every day, washing off in the refreshing outdoor shower afterwards. We rented a car (recommended) and had a wonderful time exploring the East coast of the island. There was a great grocery store about 15 minutes away with some farmers' market stands, fast food chicken and burgers (Chefette) and a great little library that offers visitor permits. We enjoyed walking on the trail at the end of the beach to Martin's Bay. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and I would happily stay here again. If you are looking for a clean, 'no-frills', self-catering cottage on the East coast this is the place for you. I am grateful to our hosts for sharing their family treasure with us."

  • A perfect spot to spend a month

    "What a wonderful spot in Paradise. Close to everything yet a few minute walk away from the center of tourism. Feels like local Barbados. Condo has everything you could want or need in your home away from home. Small grocery store next door. Larger store about a 15 minute walk away. Descriptions and pictures accurately describe this lovely spot. Rob was great to deal with as was Greg when we arrived. Dover Beach is a 2 minute walk away. Local buses about a 10 minute walk. This place has a great location, is safe and the perfect spot for a great vacation. Would highly recommend."

  • Enrichissant

    "Ce voyage fut réellement intéressant et m'a permit un apprentissage profond de l'anglais Je suis venue à Barbades et plus précisément dans cette maison grâce aux conseils de ma grande sœur et je n'ai pas été déçue. Des plages au repas en passant par les cours d'anglais ont permis à mon voyage d’être réellement incroyable et inoubliable. Les chambres sont superbes grâce aux lits très confortables qu'il y a et à la structure. Cette famille est dotée d'une grande hospitalité et d'une grande gentillesse, j'en garderai de très bons souvenirs."

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.

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.
