Villa Melissa is a perfect family villa in Barbados, offering 5 bedrooms - with 3 bedrooms in the main house and a 2 bedroom cottage. “The Times” UK listed Villa Melissa as one of the top 30 Caribbean Villas.

The property has a newly constructed swimming pool that sits in the middle of picturesque and spacious gardens and is particularly suited for families. It is divided into two areas by stepping stones creating a 3 ft. shallow end ideal for children with comfortable seating close by so they can be watched from the water’s edge. On the other side of the stepping stone is a deeper swimming area, 4.6 “ deep throughout for those who want to do lengths.

For further guest enjoyment, the new bar has a great, relaxed, beach bar feel with driftwood timbers and 6 bar stools - perfect for pre-dinner cocktails or a nightcap.

This 5 bedroom villa in Barbados sits within enclosed gardens. There is also excellent staff who will take care of you. Villa Melissa is only a few minutes' walks from the beach along a private road/pathway that runs just outside the grounds. Enjoy beach life but escape to the house as and when you feel like it.

Barbados is a fabulous holiday destination at any time of the year, with many white sandy beaches fringed by the warm Caribbean Sea. Barbados has some of the friendliest Caribbean people you'll ever meet. Located on the popular West Coast in the parish of St James, Villa Melissa is just a short drive to Holetown with its selection of shops, restaurants, and bars, or if you like a stroll on the beach, close by are the luxury Barbados hotel resorts such as Coral Reef Club, Colony Club, Royal Pavilion and Glitter Bay.

As with many Caribbean Villas, holiday life is centered around outdoor living and soaking up the Caribbean atmosphere and the hospitality of the Caribbean Villa staff. Villa Melissa is no exception and the staff includes the efficient butler, whose focus is making sure guests have a relaxing time, and the warm-hearted cook Eurys, who will prepare some mouth-watering meals.

All of the five bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, ceiling fans, and a combination of King, Queen, and twin beds to suit most requirements. The cottage is completely built of old coral stone and has 2 bedrooms with bathrooms, a kitchen, and 2 patios - an ideal arrangement for two families or groups of friends. Being private and having a fabulous west coast location with the beach, restaurants, and nightlife allows guests to get away from it all.

‘’Absolutely fabulous!”
‘’Absolutely fabulous!”

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your email below and apologises for the delay in responding as it has been extremely hectic since my return from Barbados. I felt it important to give you some feedback about our stay at Villa Melissa.

Two words to describe the villa is ‘’Absolutely fabulous!” The 3 staff, Patricia, Rodney and Grace were extremely good and far exceeded our expectations. They could not do enough for us during our stay. Patricia the cook was excellent and her cooking was of a very high standard. She was that good, my friends and I just wanted to stay in for dinner most nights.

Grace the housekeeper was exceptionally good and kept every area in the villa spick and span. The villa itself was very spacious even with the 7 of us staying there and with the very large swimming pool it accommodated 7 of us very comfortably. I loved the outside bar especially with Rodney keeping us well stocked up with Banks Beers. It was the most popular place in the villa where we would gather together, sit, chat, drink and listen to music as well as having a sing song.

Another area which I loved was the lounge area on the patio which gave shelter from the sun. Overall the villa is an ideal location and so close to the beach. I enjoyed the 20 minute walk along the beach to Holetown which I did every day. My friends said it was the best holiday they ever had.

Each morning I worked for a few hours and found the internet was excellent. It was very fast with no delays which is very important.

All in all I would give Villa Melissa 10 out of 10.

Many thanks to you and Julie for arranging this villa with all the extras we required and the excellent service you both provided. I look forward to booking with you again. With thanks and best wishes,

Mr McDonnell
