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

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!

A great place to stay and so well equipped. Linda made sure everything went ok and was in regular contact to ensure we were enjoying ourselves.. The Beach House is a 10 minute walk away with a lovely pool and beach.

Ultimate Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Palm Villa deserved five stars from the time of booking owing to Linda's care for our comfort and her attention to detail. The villa is comfortable, spacious and so very very relaxing. The peaceful location and the level of privacy was important to us whilst at the same time being convenient for shops, bars, restaurants and the beach. Heaven! We can highly recommend Tides for a special evening out and Zaccios or The Beach House for a more casual meal. Sundowners at Drift are a must but we felt that Fishpot further along the coast had lost its magic rather .... less individual and indifferent service. On the south coast you can't beat Champers for lunch. Book for a good table and enjoy! As for fabulous swimming then head to Folkestone .... have a fish cutter and a Banks beer in the shade after a great swim. I could go on and on .... book Palm Villa and have a great holiday.

A gem of a home with so many amenities!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a most wonderful vacation at Linda's paradise home and would definitely stay again if she will have us. The home is beautiful and only slightly off the west beach area and a short walking distance to the grocery store. Loved to be able to BBQ our own dinners. The patio area is so comfortable and where we enjoyed seeing monkeys, tiny lizards, large snails, and birds.

Linda was very attentive to make sure that our stay was all we expected. Thank you, thank you.

The home will comfortably accommodate a family six. JUST A REAL GREAT PLACE!!!

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.
