Going on vacation to Barbados? Looking to rent somewhere on the West Coast? Paradise Rentals offer an extensive choice of St. James vacation rentals, self catering villas and apartments of first class quality.

Why St. James? St. James is one of eleven parishes and was originally built on a swamp but has come a long way since it was developed. Shopping is fantastic on the west coast with a brand new mall, the Limegrove lifestyle centre, where you can shop ‘till you drop in the designer stores, Louis Vuitton to name but one of many. You can also eat at some of the finest restaurants or simply drink at the popular bar in the centre of this wonderful mall. The mall also has the newly built cinema with big lush chairs and a service providing drinks and food delivered to you while you relax and watch movies.

A short step away from Limegrove is a small chattel village which hosts local arts and crafts at their best. If you’re looking for that special designer dress or shirt, look no further you’re sure to find something here just waiting for you.

Everything you need for the perfect Caribbean vacation is in St. James and all amenities are catered for. In the centre of St James there are banks, supermarkets, restaurants and lots of duty free shopping. If you’re looking for that special gift for a loved one, or you just want to treat yourself to some jewellery at the famous Diamonds International, who offer great duty free prices on precious or semi precious stones, watches and lots more.

The main beach in St. James is Surfside with a small local restaurant and bar situated beach side. Here you can meet locals who offer local crafts and water sports so if you just want to ride the ocean on a jet ski, or take in the marine life on a glass bottom boat this is the place to be.

St James is well known to the rich and famous, some who actually own their own properties here, and you never know, you may just bump into a celebrity from the movies or on TV I did! Guess who?

On Sunday nights you may want to party with locals and tourists and sing the night away at the Karaoke bar in First Street with a local Banks beer in hand. First and Second Street is right in the heart of St. James with a number of bars and restaurants. Or you may just want to have a candle lit dinner while you watch the sun go down and enjoy a spectacular sunset. Make sure you carry your camera so you will never forget the moment.

I have travelled the world but by far my best vacations are when staying in St. James. I’d highly recommend Paradise Rentals to find you the perfect accommodation. They offer fantastic properties with a quality service. Check out their great selection of villa and apartment rentals – you won’t be disappointed!
