Official site for Villa Melissa - a luxury Barbados Villa rental in St James.
One of the top 30 Homes to rent in the Caribbean - The London Times - 16th November 2013
Villa Melissa is a fully staffed Villa for rent in Queens Fort which is a private estate of several large homes with their own private path to the beach on the west coast of Barbados in the parish of St James.
The House comes with 5 bedrooms ( 3 in the main house and 2 in the cottage) all of which are air-conditioned.
When staying here you can enjoy the privacy of the house and gardens and also beach life as sun loungers and umbrellas are put out on the beach. Add your own well stocked cooler and you are set for the day. Guests are given a walkie talkie so that they can call for more drinks or Patsy can call to advise that lunch is ready and then you can return to the beach or snooze on a lounger in the garden. There is a 43 ft long " Saline pool" that is divided by stepping stones between the shallow ( 3ft deep) end and swimming end ( 4'6" deep) surrounded by loungers and outdoor furniture. At night the pool comes alive with alternating colours providing a fabulous effect. Close to the pool is our driftwood beach style bar which is a great place to meet for pre dinner drinks and a rum based cocktail mixed by Desmond. It's quite a magical setting in the evenings. This is what Barbados Villa living is all about.
The rate includes 3 great staff, our cook Patsy who cooks great food , Nadine who is the maid and laundress and Desmond our convivial and laid back Butler who mixes mean rum punches and mojitos and spends much of his time taking very good care of all of guests, friends and family.
The location of the house is such that you can stroll south to the Coral Reef Club and Colony Club or north to Glitter Bay and the Fairmont Royal Pavilion and it's only a mile to Holetown for shopping, restaurants and bars.
Barbados is fabulous at any time of the year, with its white sandy beaches, shimmering blue Caribbean seas and some of the friendliest Caribbean people you'll ever meet.
Perfect for family holidays
Villa Melissa is what Villa holidays in Barbados are all about, comfortable surroundings, good food, good location and great staff who are eager to please. This Barbados home can be rented in its entirety as a 5 bedroom Villa rental or alternatively as a 3 bedroom Villa rental by taking just the main house without the Cottage. The pool is shallow which is great for small children who can spend most of the day in it. As with many Caribbean Villas, holiday life is centered around out door living and soaking up the Caribbean atmosphere and the hospitality of the Bajan Villa staff.
Villa Melissa has wireless internet throughout which means you can take your lap top and do your emails by the pool!
