About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Villa - sleeps 5

This delightful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Villa is situated on Palm Avenue, Sunset Crest, a central location in St. James on the famous west coast. It is a quiet residential location, nestled in large tranquil tropical, gardens and yet it is only 5 minutes away from The Beach House, with large 50 ft pool, bar and restaurant, which is fully available to Palm Villa guests.

We offer a high standard of furnishings and fittings - in fact all you could need for a perfect holiday. The villa has a lovely double patio area for relaxing and dining while the lounge provides comfortable seating (two seater and three seater settees with chair) so you can choose your 'downtime' area! French doors lead you onto the patio and there is large settee and rattan chairs and lovely breeze to keep you cool. The villa has everything to meet your needs - Direct TV, DVD, stereo, Free Wi-Fi and free telephone for all local calls plus fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, cooker, liquidiser, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and all necessary crockery and utensils to a high standard.

The bedrooms are both en-suite and are light and airy with comfortable king size beds. Both have overhead ceiling fans and AC for your comfort. A third bedroom is also available with twin beds and AC.

Fabulous white sandy beaches are 5 minutes walking distance from the villa and wind along the coastline both north and south. As well as tourist attractions such as tropical gardens, safari jeep tours, horse riding, cruises, catamaran trips, water sports, golf, tennis, duty free shopping - the area has everything you could possibly want and more! With so many places of interest and excursions on offer it's hard to decide where to go and what to do! Car hire is simple and easy - to visit the rugged east coast, which is wild and beatuiful and very different to the tranquil west coast

Holetown is the central hub of activity with its bars, restaurants and renown 'First Street'. Banks, supermarket and the new Lime Grove development are right on the doorstep, hosting international fashion brands (for duty free shopping) and restaurants to tempt every taste.

Access to The Beach House with 50ft pool and loungers plus bar/restaurant facilities, are available to the guests of Palm Villa

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(14 traveller reviews)



  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa nestled away in its own private garden. Short walk to the beach, restaurants, bars & bus stop where you can catch buses to Bridgetown, Speightstown & Oistins for $2 BD. The reggae bus is certainly an experience ! It is well furnished, clean & has all the utensils including BBQ if you want to self cater. Linda the owner is great to communicate with, ringing us on arrival to make sure everything was ok & we were extremely grateful for the supplies left. Our flight out was a late one & Linda had arranged for us to leave our cases & shower at the hotel next door as she had new tennants the same day. Would thoroughly recommend this delightful accommodation & hope to return.

Super Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This villa is everything the description says, and more.

It is big and beautiful, within walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and fabulous beaches.

The villa has everything you need, the kitchen is fully equipped if you do actually want to cook on your holiday!!

But, what makes your holiday the best you can have is the owners help and concern that you do have a wonderful holiday. From start to finish Linda makes sure you happy and fully informed.

I have been travelling to Barbados for the last 15 years and this one of the best places to stay with a welcome unparalleled. All I can say is GO!!!!!

Thank you Linda, we'll be seeing you again.

A beautiful property on a beautiful island.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well equipped, house in a great location. Palm Villa provides plenty of room, inside and out, in which to relax and enjoy yourself. The bedrooms are large, comfortable, and have en suite facilities. The kitchen is probably the best equipped that we have come across and even provides the basics such as herbs, spices, seasonings, tea & sugar etc. (almost unheard of anywhere else). It's the little things that make all the difference, such as, plenty of clothes hangers, decent wine glasses, a good BBQ, comfortable furniture etc. This really is a home from home and we enjoyed staying there immensely. Being an easy 10 min walk from everything that Hole Town has to offer, with other shops, amenities and bus stops even closer, Palm Villa is in a very good, and quiet, location. Also Linda, the owner is extremely helpful before, and during, your holiday. Her help and advice, together with her excellent staff on site, ensure that you get off to a great start from day one. She will even organise airport transfers and groceries for when you arrive. I cannot recommend this property highly enough so, if you are going to Barbados, Palm Villa is the place to stay. You won't be disappointed.

Unfortunately we had to cancel but Linda was great

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we had to cancel our booking made for a march 2915 and although we didn't get to stay, I want to share our experience with you. From our original request to book with Linda she was a true pleasure to deal with. We paid our deposit but unfortunately had to cancel due to a change of jobs. Linda was not only understanding, she refunded our deposit stating that we had provided her plenty of time to book the property again. She has no idea how greatly we appreciated it. We returned to Barbados in 2016 but the palm villa was already booked. We booked another property and dealing with the owners was terrible! This experience made us realize what a wonderful owner Linda is! We are returning in 2018 and hope to book the Palm Villa! Thank you Linda!

The house was tucked away on quiet street so was very private and quiet which was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We loved palm villa . The owner Linda made every effort both before and after we arrived to make sure that all our needs were met and every question answered. The Vila is beautiful, very spacious and light and extremely comfortable . The kitchen has everything you could possibly need (and more) and the rooms have lots of space so you really feel that it's a home from home. We spent most of our time (when not out gallivanting) outside around the table in the lovely garden. I would recommend this villa to anyone. It's very close to transport, shops , the beach etc. We shall be back soon that's for sure.

3 of us stated here for two weeks in April to celebrate milestone birthdays on this beautiful island. Linda was amazing to work and communicate with. The Villa was wonderful, inviting, with lovely outdoor spaces and we even arrived with some complimentary groceries including milk, juice, bread, eggs etc. The use of the beach/pool at Sunset Crest next to the Beach House was great. The walk was about 10 minutes and on return at the end of the day we passed the fruit and vegetable stand to pick up produce. Also on the way home I had my daily mocha frappichino and my friends had their delicious ice cream treat. Close by is the Massy grocery store where you an get free shuttle back to the Villa. We ordered in pizza from Zaccios, 3 BD for delivery. We were disappointed not to see the monkeys, maybe next time. We ran out of propane for the BBQ and Linda was right on it with a new delivery the next day. Holetown is a lovely town close to some wonderful public beaches to explore. The bed was one of the most comfortable I ever been in. If you have small children out of strollers, the walk to the beach although only 10 minutes, may be too much for them. I would definitely recommend this lovely spot 100%.
