Just got back from our third visit to St James Villa - this time we took some friends for their first trip to Barbados and they understood why we keep coming back to St James Villa - and will do again. Simply no need to look any further.
Firstly, the location is just perfect. The villa is right on the beach, so you can jump straight into the sea and swim around the coral and if you're lucky see a few turtles.
Within a stones throw is Tides, my favourite restaurant on the island. Also in short walking distance is a whole host of other excellent dining in Holetown to suit all budgets. Some of our favourite evenings were actually having a bbq in the villa with fresh-off-the-boat tuna, swordfish and mahi-mahi. Perfect.
I would definitely recommend you take a previous reviewer's advice and take a drink onto the decking and watch the sunset - we did just that every evening.
The villa itself is everything we could ask for, clean and comfortable, of course air conditioning in every bedroom.
We're already looking forward to booking our next visit!More
