Welcome to Maddox, a luxury seven-bedroom villa located at The Garden in Barbados.

Maddox stands as an unparalleled estate envisioned by the renowned architect Oliver Messel. Set against the coveted backdrop of Barbados's West Coast beach, this residence is an ethereal sanctuary, an iconic relic within the island's architectural heritage. It's little surprise that Messel chose

Maddox as his personal haven in Barbados, painstakingly restoring it during the 1950s. Messel's meticulous craftsmanship adorns every facet of this extraordinary abode, adorned with Greek columns, expansive balconies, and indigenous coral stone. Immaculately preserved, its opulent interiors and verdant surroundings bespeak a labor of love and devotion.

The ground level beckons with enchanting, breezy spaces tailored for convivial gatherings and cherished moments with dear ones. A gazebo overlooking the ocean offers entrancing vistas—a quintessential perch for beholding the Caribbean's resplendent sunsets. An elegant bar by the poolside sets the stage for evening libations before guests enter the romantically captivating dining terrace. High ceilings, antiquated wrought iron fixtures, and a bespoke twelve-seater coral dining table adorn this space. Post-dinner, the terrace lounge invites one to unwind beneath the Caribbean's star-studded sky.

The grand and airy living room, featuring a commodious sectional sofa, is a haven for relaxation—whether watching TV, engaging in games, or indulging in a good read. A designated desk area caters to those requiring a remote work spot.

At Maddox, aquatic delights abound—be it in the expansive pool or the crystalline waters of the Caribbean Sea, easily accessible via the secluded beach for a morning or afternoon dip.

Seven en suite bedrooms span across three distinct structures: the Main House, Guest Cottage 1, and Guest Cottage 2, offering ample respite and privacy for a sizable group of friends or family.

The main house, spanning two levels, houses four en suite bedrooms. The upper floor hosts the luminous and airy Master suite, adorned with lofty ceilings and polished wooden floors. Antique furnishings, a stately king-sized upholstered bed, luxurious linens, and carefully curated accents define this refined space. French doors open onto a private balcony boasting breathtaking sea panoramas. The master suite has air conditioning, a ceiling fan, and ample wardrobe space. Its en suite boasts marble floors, a double vanity with a marble top, and a spacious shower.

Spacious and sophisticated, Guest Bedroom 2 exudes elegance, furnished with a meticulously crafted king-sized bed, premium fabrics, and a sizable ornate dressing mirror. Wooden floors, air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, and a recently refurbished en suite with a spacious shower complete the room. Guest Bedroom 2 shares an extensive balcony overlooking the sea, with Guest Bedrooms 3 and 4.

Guest Bedrooms 3 and 4 seamlessly function as a familial suite. Bedroom 3 features a king bed, deluxe linens, and an en suite with a marble-floored vanity and shower. Bedroom 4 boasts mahogany wooden floors, twin beds, a marble-floored en suite, and a bathtub with a shower. Both bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning and ceiling fans and share a north-facing balcony overseeing the pool, alongside private stairs leading to the pool area.

Guest Cottage One provides a secluded retreat amidst the gardens, offering garden vistas, vaulted ceilings, sumptuous fabrics, a king-sized bed, and an en suite with a sizable walk-in shower. This cottage is fully air-conditioned.

Nestled within the lush greenery, Guest Cottage Two comprises bedrooms 6 and 7. Bedroom 6 boasts a regal king-sized four-poster mahogany bed. Bedroom 7 mirrors the grandeur with a king-sized bed and a convenient kitchenette. Both rooms feature air conditioning, fans, and en suites with marble floors and spacious showers.

Nestled along the esteemed West Coast, Maddox enjoys proximity to championship golf courses, tennis courts, spas, and the luxury shopping and fine dining delights of Holetown—a mere stone's throw away by car.
