BARBADOS,HOLETOWN. STYLISH ONE-BED APARTMENT, 5 MINUTES WALK TO BEACH AND SHOPS.

Holetown Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, near beach and town, terrace, garden, FREE air-conditioning, cable TV

Barbados 'Starfish' is a one bedroom beach retreat which has been carefully renovated to incorporate everything guests would want from a self-catering apartment. This traditional Caribbean dwelling brings modern elements of the beach into it's interior design. It is located in a quiet residential avenue on the prestigious west coast of Barbados in the quaint town of Holetown, St James.The turquoise Caribbean waters and white sands are just minutes walk from the accommodation, as are Holetown's many shops,bars and restaurants. Guests at 'Starfish' also benefit from Free Membership, for the duration of their stay, at The Beach House where you may use the beach side swimming pool and sun loungers.

Free WiFi is also available at The Beach House private member's pool, less than a 5 minute walk from the apartment.

There is a dedicated parking space provided with the property, should you wish to rent a car.

Holetown further information.: Located on the calm West Coast of Barbados, Holetown offers numerous facilities, a plethora of restaurants bars and shops to suit all tastes and budgets are all within a few minutes walk of ' Starfish' apartment.

The newly opened Lime Grove Lifestyle Centre is a fabulous oasis in the centre of Holetown and showcases many designer boutiques including Ralph Lauren, Armani Exchange and Breitling to name but a few, stylish coffee shops, bars and restaurants allow for relaxation whilst browsing, The centre also incorporates a gym and beauty salon to rejuvenate even the weariest shopper.

The Folkestone Marine Centre, ten minutes walk from Holetown is an amazing place to try snorkelling or scuba diving, the clear turquoise waters ensure optimum viewing for the many different species of marine life, there is also a visitor centre and a picnic area, making it the perfect place for a swim followed by lunch.

Barbados Sightseeing: Barbados has a rich history, visible in many of the old plantation houses and sugar mills which are well worth visiting.

Spend a day in Bridgetown, stop for a drink and some people watching on the waterside, see the statue of Lord Nelson ( older than the one in London) visit Broad Street for designer and duty free shopping or try a market and get a feel of the local vibe.

The diversity of Barbados will both fascinate and amaze, a visit to the dramatic East Coast with the wild Atlantic waves crashing against the coast at Bathsheba is a must and in stark contrast to the calm of the West Coast beaches, spend time watching the surfers brave the waves at Soup Bowl and while on the east side visit Flower Forest or Welchman's Gully and appreciate the nature and history of this beautiful island.

Starfish a Five Star apartment

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in the Starfish apartment. It is very comfortable and everything is fresh, clean and new, as it has been recently renovated. The apartment is well appointed with great attention to detail. We didn't have a car and really didn't need one as everything is close at hand in Holetown; an excellent supermarket, a mall and souvenir shopping in the Chattel Village, while the Beach House with it's pool and restaurant is truly only a 5 minute walk away (There is a 10% discount off the great food there with your Sunset Crest visitor card). There is also good swimming (no rocks!) just south of the Beach House. If you like to snorkel, the Folkestone Marine Reserve is about a 15 minute walk just north of Holetown.
We love to eat fresh fish when we are in Barbados and the local fish market is at Payne's Bay about a 10 minute bus ride away (sale of fish is after 11 a.m). In fact both the blue and yellow local buses are really convenient as Highway 1 is so close. (The blue buses are a little more sedate, the yellow ones tend to be a bit of a fast, white knuckle ride!!)
Sunset Crest is a fun area to explore if you like walking as we do. It is also possible at low tide to walk along the beach south to Paynes' Bay. We love to take the Hike Barbados Sunday hikes when we are visiting. It's a great way to exercise, meet people and discover off the beaten track parts of the island.
We were fortunate enough to be in Holetown during the Festival week (Feb 17th to 22) so we had many activities to enjoy such as free concerts, parades and the craft fair.
If you are football supporters, the Surfside Bar (by the Police Station!)
is a fun place to watch a game.
We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends for its comfort, great value, its super location and an owner who is absolutely delightful to deal with. Thank you Lynn for everything and good luck with renting your lovely property

Excellent property in an excellent location!!

  • 5 of 5
Starfish is a beautifully appointed property that offered everything we needed for our stay in Barbados.

The property is very clean and in a superb location within Holetown. 5 minutes walk from all of the local amenities (the cafe in Chattel Village is great breakfast).
Having use of the facilities at The Beach House is an added bonus as well.

We loved our time staying at Starfish and cannot wait to go back.

A little bit of paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a 2 week break staying at Starfish. We chose to stay in this property from the excellent reviews that we had read and its location. We were not disappointed. The description of the apartment and its location were spot on. There are also very lovely neighbours either side as well. We certainly made use of the Beach House facilities and the staff there are so friendly and helpful. It was heaven, relaxing on sunbeds under the palm trees by the pool and then decisions, decisions, cool off in the pool or step onto the beach and swim in the sea, or stroll along the board walk. It was wonderful. Starfish has all the modern conveniences needed for a relaxing holiday with a very comfortable bed and much needed air-conditioning in the bedroom and its location is really good. It was so convenient, far enough from Highway One that there was no traffic noise, yet within easy walking distance of the nearest supermarket, fruit and vegetable stall, the local food van if you really want to sample cheap Bajan food,lots of excellent restaurants at a variety of prices and taxis if you want to venture out to other parts of the Island. You are very close to the bus route for Bridgetown and Speightstown. The yellow buses are an excellent thrill ride. Everyone should try them. We hired a car for a few days to see the sights once we could tear ourselves away from the Beach House and the wonderful beach and had a very entertaining evening down in Oistins at the Friday Night Fish Fry - highly recommended.

This was our 3rd visit to Barbados, the last one being 16 years ago. I am sure that we will return to stay at Starfish and we will certainly not leave it that long before we come back. Thank you Lynn for everything. We had a wonderful time.

A perfect getaway in great location

  • 5 of 5
The Starfish apartment was perfect for our honeymoon in Barbados - we could walk to the beach, easily reach the best restaurants on the island and stroll into Holetown for the shops and cafes.

Firstly, the apartment was spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated with comfy seats, an ipod dock and a table on the shadey terrace to eat our breakfast.
Bed was good and there were plenty of towels for beach/shower.
Plus the shower was hot and the water pressure was high which is important to me after a day on the beach!
Kitchen was well stocked - not that we did much cooking but it was really handy for breakfasts and when we had a takeaway at home.

The a/c looked like it was brand new and worked very well - which was handy because Barbados was really hot, even October (low season, apparently)
Lots of local info and we even had a visit from Lynns' manager to make sure we were settled in OK and were given a number to call in case of any problems which was handy.

The beach is only a short stroll away and you can buy mangos on the way from the fruit seller lady on the corner! The beach is a lot quieter than the built-up areas in the south but there are plenty of really nice bars and cafes on the beach for sunset cocktails and barbeque fish....yum!

Sandwiched between the poshest resorts and Holetown we had the best of both worlds - relaxed local bars, boutiquey shops, high-end restaurants 10 mins away and even a good supermarket round the corner for the essentials (buy the local SPF and aloe vera aftersun lotion!!)

The pool is down near the beach and part of the beach club complex so nice to relax and order food after a dip. We could use the wifi here but we ended up using the coffee shops across the road in the new Limegrove shopping centre.

Our fave places - day trip to Speightstown / sunday nights at Ragamuffins / sundowners at Surfside / turtle spotting on Silvermoon catamaran

Although its a 30 minute cab ride from the airport, being further up the coast meant we were able to visit more of the island and explore the real Barbados.

All in all, we are looking forward to returning soon and we will definitely want to stay at Starfish again!!

The newly opened Lime Grove lifestyle centre is an added attraction, less than ten minutes stroll from the apartment, it offers designer boutiques, restaurants, bars plus a cinema. If pure Caribbean glamour is for you then the famous Sandy Lane beach is a 10 minute walk and for special occasions the world renowned Cliff restaurant is a 10 minute drive. Buses leave Holetown regularly and are a very reasonable way of exploring the island.

Other Activities: scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, swimming with turtles, boat trips.

Golf: The famous Sandy Lane Golf Course is five minutes drive from Sunset Crest, both The Country Club and Old Nine courses are open to the public.
