festival fun for family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Easy to book with owner Tony, great communication from start to finish and the contacts in Holetown Heather and Dave were helpful throughout the holiday regarding transfers, checkout, groceries, additional towels etc. the maid service was incredible, the Villa was spotless.

This was a half term, one week holiday, the Holetown festival was in full swing and there was so much to do. Free concerts, stalls, the place was buzzing. The Villa is a 5 min walk to town and beach and yet so peaceful and quiet. The pool is lovely, bedrooms have excellent air-conditioning and the Villa has soo much space to relax that if you do want a quiet corner to read there are plenty of those. The garden and surrounding area is beautiful and we felt very safe walking at night. The streets are well lit and the Villa itself has plenty of security including a safe. Dave will organise airport transfers and can also arrange car hire.

our only regret is that we didn't book 3 weeks!

A tip would be to take a few provisions because the local supermarket is pricy for basics such as tea, coffee, cereal.....especially if you have teenagers. Holetown full of lovely restaurants in all price ranges and the street food & Just Grillin a cheap family favourite.

A brilliant holiday and we intend to rebook ASAP.

Perfect - in every way!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful find this villa was - it was perfect for us in every way. The facilities in the villa were spot on, the location couldn't have been better and the 'meet and greet' team who the owner's work with made us feel at home straight away. For sightseeing, a gentle stroll to the beach or just a relax by the pool this holiday was great. The airconditioning in the rooms at night and the verandah area with the open space to feel the outdoor but not the heat was very much welcomed. We also loved the pool. If we had been more than 2 I'm sure we would have eaten in more and BBQd. The villa is in walking distance of some great restaurants - offering such a range of cuisines. Well located for upmarket (designer) shopping and also basic supermarket needs. Would wholly recommend and can't wait to go back again soon! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

A great place to stay, within walking distance to Holetown. The three bed bungalow is well equipped & the new swimming pool only adds to the holiday experience. We used the bbq as much as possible & were very lucky to see the monkeys stroll through the garden on a couple of occasions. I would recommend this bungalow without hesitation.

Villa in Holetown, St. James, Barbados

  • 5 of 5

The last two years have seen us visit this beautiful island staying at this villa in Holetown, St. James. Set in superb surroundings the villa has everything to set you up for enjoying the local amenities with spacious living accommodation, complimented by delightful outside dining facilities and swimming pool. Glorious beaches and numerous shops are within easy walking distance along with as cheap a bus service to anywhere on the island as is possible. A wonderful spot with friendly locals and a super villa to come back to - what more could you wish for.
