Villa Melissa presents itself as the ultimate family retreat in the stunning locale of Barbados. Boasting five bedrooms, this villa is a true gem, featuring a trio of bedrooms within the main house and an additional two-bedroom cottage. Notably, Villa Melissa has earned a distinguished spot in the top 30 Caribbean Villas according to “The Times” UK.
Enhancing its allure, the property showcases a brand-new swimming pool nestled amidst expansive and picturesque gardens, making it an ideal haven for families. The pool design cleverly divides the space into two distinct sections via stepping stones. On one side, a shallow end with a gentle 3-foot depth caters perfectly to children, complete with comfortable seating along the water's edge for vigilant supervision. On the opposite side of the stepping stones, a deeper swimming area with a consistent depth of 4.6 feet provides an excellent spot for those who fancy some serious swimming.
A recent addition to the villa, the stylish bar exudes a relaxed beachy vibe, adorned with driftwood timbers and six inviting bar stools. This delightful setting proves perfect for savoring pre-dinner cocktails or a nightcap under the stars.
Villa Melissa, with its five bedrooms, nestles within private enclosed gardens. Its flexible arrangements allow for rental as a full five-bedroom villa, a four-bedroom option using just one of the cottage bedrooms, or a more intimate three-bedroom villa utilizing the main house exclusively. The dedicated staff, known for their exceptional service, ensure your every need is met. Accessing the nearby West Coast beach is a breeze – a brief walk along a private road/pathway adjoining the grounds brings you to the sandy shores. For added convenience, Reco, the diligent butler, takes care of beach necessities like sun loungers and coolers, and remains reachable via walkie-talkie for any additional requests. Whether you're lounging on the beach or seeking the comforts of the villa, the choice is yours.
