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, and this light-filled property has shaded areas too - for relaxing and just dreaming. It is 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

Wonderful homely villa

  • 5 of 5

Palm villa was wonderful. The property had everything you need and is like a home away from home feel. Your close to the beach and Holetown which has great restaurants and a supermarket. Linda has kept in contact from the moment of booking and called the villa the day we arrived to see if we needed anything. We will definitely be back and Linda is a great host. Cannot recommend this villa enough.

Amazing & relaxing villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Palm Villa. The place is clean, spacious, and well equipped with almost everything you need. My wife and I spent 10 days here in February and loved our stay. Linda is incredibly accommodating and friendly. Definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a spacious, relaxing villa just a short walk to the beach.

Beautiful villa in quiet area.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from ten days in paradise!

Firstly, I have to say that dealing with Linda was a pleasure from start to finish. She was always available if needed, and arranged our lifts from and to the airport for us. She also checked with us regularly to see if we needed anything.

This villa is perfect for a home from home holiday. It is spacious, light and airy and beautifully furnished.

There are mosquito and security grills on the outside of all windows which means that you can leave all of the windows open day and night. This gives a lovely airy feel to the place and gives nice through breezes.

The air conditioning in the bedrooms is very efficient and the beds are very comfortable so we slept so well!

The outdoor spaces are very private, except from the occasional visit from the friendly monkeys which is amazing. They visited us twice around breakfast time.

The friendly housekeeper, Janice, visits twice a week to change beds and towels etc. There are plenty of towels provided including beach towels. This villa actually has all the amenities you need.

The access that is provided to the Beach House is what makes this extra special. The Beach House is about a 15 minute walk away, but it is an easy walk. The access provides you with the use of all facilities at The Beach House so you have sun beds and shade and free iced water. There is a bar to buy drinks, and a restaurant for lunch and dinner. Also showers and changing rooms with lockers should you need them. We felt quite happy leaving our belongings out when we went for lunch or in the sea. It is a nice place, solely for use by members. The best part is the beach! It is particularly quiet and the water is beautiful here!

The villa is situated in a quiet backwater, next door to a small hotel, whose pool we used on one occasion after checking at reception that it was ok to do so.

There is a nice little cafe, a few shops and the bus stop within a 5/10 minute walk, and then the main supermarket and restaurants are about a 15 minute walk. Everything is within easy reach.

We used the buses on two occasions. We went to Bridgetown on the blue bus, and then rode the yellow reggae bus to Speightstown which is an experience not to be missed!! You need the correct money, but it is only 1US dollar per person per ride. Amazing value.

The locals are all very friendly and we always felt safe.

We only have positives to say about this villa and holiday. Thank you Linda!
