Overview

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 free sun loungers.

Free WiFi is also available at 'Starfish' and The Beach House private member's pool, which is 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

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A tastefully decorated, well maintained and equipped property.

You know when something is good when it instantly feels like home.

The bed was so comfortable with lovely bed linen and towels.

The property itself was absolutely spotless and in a fantastic location.

The Beach House is just around the corner, as is the fruit / veg stall, taxi’s, shops, supermarket, bars, restaurants and bus stops but far enough away so that you can have a truly peaceful stay at The Starfish.

Holetown itself has so much to offer and caters for all budgets, from designer shops to tourist shops, top quality restaurants to takeaway pizzas. It really has it all covered. Out of 7 nights, we only eat out 3, as the supermarket (Massy) was really well stocked enabling us to take advantage of the fantastic facilities at The Starfish and have a couple of BBQs.

We were lucky enough to be in Barbados for Independence Day and witnessed local families enjoying themselves on the beach and picnicking in the nearby Folkestone Marine Park, just a stroll north of Holetown. An absolute joy to see and feel part of.

We also took advantage of the wonderful bus service, catching the blue government bus to Bridgetown, returning on the yellow reggae bus. Both were great, mixing with the school kids on their commute to school on the blue bus and enjoying the reggae music on the yellow bus.

The set up at The Beach House is great. Free showers, lockers and chilled water are available throughout the day and only members have access to the lovely pool area.

Lynn was an absolute pleasure to deal with, very informative and helpful. This was further supported by the stacks of information available in the property.

It was our first holiday to The Caribbean and we’ve already repeat booked for this year but this time for a little longer. Unbeknown to us, this gained us a 10% repeat booking discount.

I couldn’t recommend this property / owner enough.

I’m confident that a visit to The Starfish will feature every year on our calendar going forward!

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.
