Villa Melissa to rent Barbados

Villa Melissa is a charming 5 bedroom private villa. It is on the west coast of Barbados just a 3 minute walk from the beach. It is located in an area known as Queens Fort. This is about a mile from Holetown. The house has 3 bedrooms in the main house and 2 bedrooms in the cottage. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and may be rented on a 5 bedroom basis. 2 of the bedrooms in the main house have recently been updated with new bathrooms.

The owners have created a secluded gated sanctuary in a quiet landscaped garden setting. The large saline swimming pool at Villa Melissa is the focal point. Also popular is the tiki style bar . This is affectionately named ”Chubs one love bar” after the owner who insists that it is a little unfair but nonetheless truer as the years go by. The bar is of a driftwood design and is a popular place to hang out. Basic spirits and cocktail mixes are available and Ian will make cocktails to suit. There is a Sonos music system at the bar so do don't forget your iPod or iphone.

There are lots of places to relax and lounge about around the pool. Choose a sofa or sun lounger and enjoy the beverage of your choice. There are also options to dine under cover on the terrace or outside by the pool. More on dining further down.

The pool has been divided by stepping stones with a shallow end that contains seating at one end. This is ideal for parents who want to spend time there with children. It is also a lovely place to sit in with friends. The shallow end is 3 feet deep and the swimming end is 4 feet 6 inches deep. The pool also has mood lighting which changes colour. This makes outside dining or a drink at the bar a real treat at night.

 Villa Melissa comes with all the modern conveniences. There is fibre optic Wi-Fi throughout and an air conditioned media room with a 60 inch flat screen television. There is also a DVD player, cable services and a writing desk. Perfect if you need to work or just catch up on social media.

 Villa Melissa is located on a private cul de sac that leads to a beach path. It is set one property back from the beach. However, it is just a 2 -3 min walk (depending on your pace) to the beach. If you go to the gallery section of the website you can experience a video of the walk to the beach. If you are planning a day at the beach just ask and we will take beach chairs and umbrellas down with a cooler for drinks.

Rental of Villa Melissa comes with the services of our staff 6 days a week . We have our charming butler Ian, Eunis our cook and Grace our maid. They love nothing better than looking after our guests and their friends and families.

Eunis has a wide repertoire of menus and can cater for most dietary requests. We have a menu at the house with suggestions. Euris can cook most things. Ian is helpful and takes care of meals. Ian also serves drinks and cocktails at the bar where the house favourite is a rum sour.

Grace keeps the house clean and takes care of the laundry. She is a character with a wry sense of humour.           

 The cottage also has its own kitchen. This comes in handy when perhaps the party consists of more than one family or age groups booking together.

 When staying with us local concierge services are provided by the house manager. We will help arrange airport transfers, car rentals and trips and tours. We can arrange catamaran trips and snorkelling with turtles. We can also organise day trips to the Grenadines and much much more.
