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.

At Villa Melissa, the large swimming pool 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 waters 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 10 bar stools - perfect for pre-dinner cocktails or a nightcap. The bar aslo has Sonos so bring your ipod and listen to your music.

This 5 bedroom villa in Barbados offers great privacy with automatic gate entry and sits within enclosed landscpaed gardens on a private road that leads to the beach path - 3 minutes walk and your on the beach. 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 centred 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 our friendly host, whose focus is making sure guests have a relaxing time, our warm hearted cook Patricia, who will prepare some mouth watering meals and Grace our Housekeeper whom keeps the place clean with a smile and a twinkle in her eye!

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 ( the master has a four poster bed) with bathrooms, a kitchen and 2 patios - an ideal arrangement for two families or groups of friends.

There is also a media room that is completely air conditioned that has a 60 inch flat screen smart tv, cable, dvd player, netflix set up and a writing desk if you need to tuck yourself away to do a few emails.

There is a choice of dining areas with either the covered round coral stone table on the patio, the outdoor wooden trestle table by the pool or the tented round table close to the bar.

Our first visit was great but our second was even better.  The wonderful Patricia backed up by the lovely Nicole and the ever busy Grace, all attending to all our needs.  It was a delight to return to Barbados at Villa Melissa and I have no doubt there will be a third visit.  Thanks to all from the whole gang.  16 April 2017

We can’t thank the three of you, Patricia, Rodney and Grace, enough for making our first trip to Barbados so memorable!  You’ve set a very high standard with your hospitality, warmth and care.  Patricia, I am going to figure out a way I can steal you and bring you back to Canada.  Your beautiful cooking really made this trip a holiday for me – thank you so much !  Rodney & Grace, your excellent care and help made us want for nothing during our stay.  It is so hard for us to leave.  We are so grateful to now feel like we have a family in Barbados that we look forward to coming back to visit.  Thank you for making our stay a fun, relaxing and restorative week.  With love – Scott, Paris, Lily and Callum 18 March 2017

Our second visit to Villa Melissa has surpassed our first visit.  Patricia, your wonderful demeanor, great smile and excellent menus all add to the special attraction of Villa Melissa.  You make it fell like home – thank you.  Rodney, thank you for holding down the bar and the “boys”, running a very special errand for James, and overall helping our when needed – you are greatly appreciated !  Grace, our first evening and introduction to the Villa and Chubs is one we will remember.  Lots of laughter and much more to follow over the course of our stay. Thank you for looking after the gang.  We hope to see you again, but the next time will be longer for sure!  The Grays (Kelly, Paul and James)  24 March 2017
