Photos and Description of this Sunset Crest holiday apartment

“The View”, 402, Villas On The Beach, Holetown, Barbados


Hold your breath and believe in magic, as you enter The View. The stunning new interior of this luxury penthouse apartment is matched only by the enchanting vista which greets you from the balcony. We think it’s probably the best view you’ll find on the Island - and you find it slap bang in the middle of the bustling Holetown. What could be better?


Villas on the Beach is exactly what the name suggests, opening straight onto the silky white sands of the Bajan West Coast, so you can dive straight in. If the warm, crystal ocean doesn’t float your boat, there are two communal pools for you to make a splash.

The penthouse is in the centre of Holetown, a convenient 35 minute drive from the airport, with everything you might need within walking distance: dozens of high quality restaurants, bars and a buzzing nightlife, supermarkets, a state-of-the-art duty-free shopping centre, and a doctor’s surgery, pharmacy and medical centre. If you fancy taking a swing, there are three world-renowned golf courses a short drive away; Sandy Lane, Apes Hill and Royal Westmoreland.


Once inside, you can relax in a royal fashion: the interior has been newly redecorated to rival the high-end design expected of Barbados’ fabled “Platinum” west coast. With the highest quality furnishings and elegant blend of contemporary and traditional decor, The View oozes style as well as comfort. Three of the four stunning bedrooms boast magnificent sea views, and all bedrooms and the living area are equipped with air conditioning to keep you cool throughout those gorgeous sunny days. Wifi is available throughout, so you can always stay connected. All premium sports, news and movie channels are available on the 42" LCD TV. The kitchen has an oven/hob and microwave, along with a side by side fridge freezer, wine cooler, dishwasher, oversized washing machine/tumble dryer, to make your holiday even easier.

Put your feet up as our housemaid, Shereene, helps out with cleaning and laundry six days a week. If you would like some meals prepared for you, Shereene will make up to two meals per day - her specialities include Grilled Catch of the Day, Chicken Curry, Lasagne, Rottis, Spaghetti Bolognese and more..(YOU BUY THE FOOD AND SHEREENE COOKS IT)!

We invite you to experience a holiday in paradise, and we hope that you, too, will fall in love with The View..

About Jonathan Willoughby

My wife and I have four daughters and we live in East Yorkshire, England.

Jonathan Willoughby purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jonathan Willoughby chose St. James

We visited Barbados 25 times before deciding to buy a property there and that gave us the chance to find the very best location (in our opinion) on the island.

We chose Holetown, as not only does it has a beautiful beach, but is the centre of all the facilities that the West Coast has to offer; so much so that you do not need to hire a car.

What makes this apartment unique

The fantastic view from the terrace.

Great property & great location

  • 5 of 5

The location is superb and the property fantastic. Jonathan was easy to work with and Simon the property manager could not have been more attentive and responsive. Shereen the maid and cook was really nice and a great cook too. Loads of extra touches- cocktails on arrival, taxi booking service, mangos from Simon's garden and even a bottle of rum for one of our parties big birthday.!Highly recommended and a big thanks to everyone for making our stay very special.

Everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

The View is aptly named! But there are so many additional positives for this place. The interior is gorgeous but very comfortable. The three bedrooms that look out over the beach were almost magical to wake up in. The gentle sound of the surf was amazing to fall asleep to. The veranda was set up perfectly. Enough comfortable seating for all (7) of us to enjoy together; which we did a lot of as we couldn't take our eyes off the ocean. And our home prepared fresh snapper dinners at the veranda table were so special. It's a perfect location for groceries, cocktails, dining, snorkeling, swimming... All within walking distance. Simon, the house manager, made sure we had everything we needed or wanted, with his island knowledge and British wit to boot! And Paula, the housekeeper, was a delight and so accommodating. We were all so very depressed to have to leave. I would love to come back for another stay at The View.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

What more can we say other than the apartment was stunning and the pictures just do not do it justice,....... You have to be there to appreciate just how amazing this place really is. You will want for nothing if you choose to stay here. Everything is perfect and Paula the Housekeeper cannot do enough for you. It was spotless from the minute we arrived to the minute we left and nothing was too much trouble for her.

Simon the Property Manager was there to meet and greet us and is clearly a major asset and again was on hand if you needed him.

If you are visiting the Island for the first time then you don't really need to have a car as the location is perfect with everything you could need so accessible.

To sum up " not too shabby" that's for sure !!!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

It is such a beautiful place, right on the beach with miles walking in both directions. We were eight people and there was enough space for everyone, balcony was our favorite place.

We had cooked lots of our meals as island is very expensive and having grocery store right across made it easy.

Jonathan was great, made booking easy.

Flawless Vacation Rental In a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

It's always a challenge planning an all girls vacation with a group of women with high standards and safety concerns, but Villas on the Beach was the perfect solution to all my planning problems! Not only is it beautifully decorated, fully equipped with everything you could need, and extremely comfortable - it's also located in the perfect location right on the beautiful calm beach and steps from great restaurants and shopping. My group felt very safe in the location and was very happy with a full time front desk and security and had no worries venturing into the beautiful town. Jonathan was lovely to deal with and Simon (the housing manager) was so helpful organizing our transfers and groceries for the stay (and answering my many questions). Paula the housekeeper was also amazing - so professional and nice!

Highlights for me were making dinner in the fully equipped kitchen and dining al fresco at the stunning dinning room table, snorkeling on the beach right outside (Yes there are reefs in the water right outside - we saw tons of fish, squid, and a HUGE Manta Ray in the reefs right off shore.) Bring your own snorkel gear if you have it and dont miss taking a turtle cruise. We also had a lovely dinner right next door at Tides (great Gluten free and Vegetarian options as well.) For nightlife we ventured to the south of the island but also enjoyed live music right across the street and at lime grove a few minutes down the block. In short - this location is a must stay for groups of friends or families looking for a relaxing, stressful, fun vacation spot - I can't wait to go back.

Barbados offers the ultimate lifestyle and The View on the beach in central Holetown is the perfect location to experience this to the full. The View is a penthouse in Villas on the Beach, in the parish of St James, just a short drive from Grantley Adams International Airport and the capital of Bridgetown. This area, on the island’s sought-after west coast, has always attracted the fi nest hotels and restaurants. Holetown, the island’s oldest settlement, is an excellent place to shop and eat. Step out of your property and the legendary Sandy Lane Hotel is just a ten-minute stroll along the beach in the next bay. You’ll also find some of the world’s most prestigious brands, including Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Cartier and Vilebrequin, in the nearby Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, just a 5 minute walk away.
