Recent Barbados reviews

  • Quiet Neighborhood, Friendly Hosts, Very Clean

    "Very clean, well equipped spacious apartment in a quiet residential neighborhood. Lynne and Lyle were very welcoming helpful hosts. Everything you need is provided. Would highly recommend. Bus service is cheap and travels all over the island so a car isn't necessary. Enjoyed nearby Gibb's beach, less crowded. Oisten's fish fry was delicious. St. Nicholas Abbey is a must see. Great snorkeling (fish and turtles) at the coral reef, south end of Mullin's beach. Check out the bakery in nearby Speightstown for some yummy treats, only a short 20 minute walk. Watch for the monkeys crossing in front of the property early in the morning. Renting this property you certainly won't be disappointed. Thanks for all your help Lynne and Lyle."

  • Can't wait to rent again!

    "My husband and I rented this fantastic home for our one week get-away. We love Barbados and have rented other houses previously. We really enjoyed the quiet neighbourhood and were quite pleased with it's close proximity to both Speightstown and to the main highway that runs up the centre of the island. We do recommend renting a vehicle. We cannot say enough nice things about Joyce - the property manager - who welcomed us upon our arrival like we were visiting family! Joyce checked in on us via phone a couple of times during the week to ensure we were doing well and that everything was satisfactory (in fact everything was amazingly great!) and said not to hesitate to contact her should we need anything. The absence of air-conditioning wasn't an issue at all. Ceiling fans, portable fans and screened windows were more than enough to keep things at a comfortable temperature while enabling us to listen to the birds in the morning and whistling frogs in the evening. Making the arrangements and "doing business" with Jacqueline was easy and a pleasure! We had no problems with the Wifi and easily kept in touch with everyone back home. Loved the covered patio/deck and often ate outside, or just sat enjoying an evening beverage. We highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return, next time with the kids in tow!"

  • 60th Birthday celebrations

    "The house, gardens, pool and location are fantastic. Although situated in local residential area the locals were very friendly and we felt safe at all times. The house is very close to Gibbs beach which in our opinion, having spent many years visiting the Island, is one of the best in Barbados. Jefferson is the owner of Carlton bar and grill situated at the end of the road and who is extremely friendly and assisted in sourcing the best value hire car, taxi and island boat trips. The villa owner, Jennifer, is also very friendly and helpful. All in all a fantastic villa and holiday"

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.

It is worth considering that the shopping here is tax-free for vacationers. When shopping, ensure you have your passport and travel documents with you!

As an island, seafood is a base for many of the local dishes and many menus will have locally caught snapper, shrimp and kingfish on offer. The local traditional dish is flying fish served with a corn meal and okra dish called Cou-Cou, topped with Creole sauce. There will also be a wide variety of shellfish on offer. The more adventurous should try the local "sea eggs" which are deviled sea urchin roe, grilled pigtails or fried conch.
