In front the beach within a stone's through, and before it an beautiful, manicured garden and two pools ( one short and shallow ) , one long and meandering amongst the foliage. Many areas for sunbeds which Villa owner ( unlike some others ) provides easily brought down cushions
Security staff 24 hr. Code to enter front block entrance door if they are not at reception and coded gate to beach
Location : a myriad of cafes, restaurants, bars within a short walk, some literally next door. A well stocked supermarket and Pharmacist just a short stroll away.
Outside a bus top to take you anywhere for 2 BB $ (1US$ ) .
Lovely area for swimming, snorkelling and walking on new board walks ( made from large tiles ) by the sea. And some very memorable sunsets to photo.
Close to perfection - hard to fault ( we are annoyed as we like to find faults ... LOL !!! ).
we found this property at relatively short notice. it transpired the location is ideal - on the beach, in Holetown and close to an excellent selection of restaurants. The housekeeping arrangements were excellent and allowed flexibility in dining arrangements to suit. We'd highly recommend using Andrew for watersports instruction as well as excellent guiding around the island.
all in all a thoroughly enjoyable time in a wonderful apartment
Just returned from a fabulous holiday at Barolo. The apartment is huge and the first impression as you walk in is breathtaking. Overlooking a lovely West Coast beach the position just couldn't be better. A number of restaurants are within walking distance as is a very handy beach bar for sundowners. The local people who work on the beach are so pleasant and don't hassle you if you say no thanks, which is quite different to other areas of the Island. Our other friends/relatives (we were there for a family wedding) were so envious of our position as we had no need to take taxis and had the best supermarket just over the road as well as selecion of small boutiques and various other shops.
Sonia cooked some lovely meals and is such a pleasant girl with a nothing is too much trouble attitude.
In all I highly recomend this property as a home from home with lots of space, luxury bathrooms, kitchen, appliances and furnishings...after 15 visits to Barbados this is the best accomodation we have had .....you won't want to leave!
Stayed here for a blissful week in December 2008. This apartment is PACKED with amenities - including a full time and delightful woman to cook, clean, make beds, do laundry. She's wonderful. The apartment has everything you could want. The pool is just a moment down the stairs, the beach is another 10 steps further. The air conditioning can keep you cool at the hottest part of the day, but for the most part an ocean breeze blows thru. Big TV and internet access if you need that. A full service supermarket directly across the street (although you don't see it from the apartment, which has only a full ocean view) so you can walk over and buy ANYTHING that you need. Other shops just a 5 minute walk, if you like shopping (clothes, souvenirs, beach supplies, gourmet shop with GODIVA chocolates). You really will want for nothing.
Highly, highly recommend this spot for a vacation rental.

Beautiful flat in a perfect location on a great island. Nicely furnished and very well kept up. Great for a couple, several couples or a family, including young children. Fully equipped kitchen. The cook/housekeeper is a wonderful lady who is very service oriented. Pool and lap pool as well as being right on the beach. Holetown has lots of shops and restaurants, including a huge supermarket and a first class wine store. No need for a car. Super place for a great Caribbean vacation.
Holetown, St James is situated in the middle of Barbados's famous West coast approximately 10 miles from Bridgetown. Barolo is located on the beach in Holetown within easy walking distance of all major shops, banks, restaurants (Tides, Zaccios, The Mews, Nishi, Ragamuffins and Angry Annies to name a few) and various bars, the Piano Bar being one.
Golf: Barbados has several new and exciting courses.
Tee times etc. can all be organised through the local agent for Sandy Lane, Royal Westmoreland, Apes Hill and the Barbados Golf Club.
