Enjoy your luxury treat at Villa Melissa
Villa Melissa is a charming private villa on the west coast of Barbados in an area known as Queens Fort which is about a mile from Holetown. The house has 3 bedrooms in the main house and 2 bedrooms in the cottage which all have en-suite bathrooms and can be rented on a 5 bedroom basis. The owners have created a secluded gated sanctuary in a quiet landscaped garden setting with a large saline swimming pool being the focal point and a tiki style bar called ”Chubs one love bar” named after the owner who insists that its possibly a little unfair but none the less truer as the years go by. The bar is of a driftwood design and a popular place to hang out. Basic spirits and cocktail mixes are available and Rico will make cocktails to suit. There is a Sonos music system at the bar so do don't forget your iPod. There are lots of places to either lounge about around the pool whether on sofas or sun loungers enjoying the beverage of your choice. There are also options to dine under cover on the patio 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 so that parents can spend time with children or just sit in there with other 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 making outside dining or a drink at the bar a real treat at night.
The house comes with all the modern conveniences and has fibre optic Wi-Fi throughout, an air conditioned media room with a 60 inch flat screen television, DVD player, cable services and a writing desk if you need to work or just catch up on social media.
Villa Melissa is located on a private road that leads to a beach path and is set one property back from the beach. However, it’s just a 2 -3 min walk(depending on your pace) to the beach and if you go to the gallery section of the website you can experience a video of the walk. If you are planning a day at the beach we will take beach chairs and umbrellas down with a cooler for drinks.
Rental of the house comes with the services of our staff 6 days a week . We have our casual host Rikki, Patricia our cook and Grace our maid who love nothing better than looking after our guests and their friends and families. Patricia has a wide repertoire of menus and can cater for most dietary requests. We have a menu at the house which has suggestions but Patricia can cook most things. Rikki is helpful and takes care of meals and drinks at the bar where the house favourite is a rum sour. Grace keeps that house clean and takes care of the laundry and has a wry sense of humour.
The cottage also has its own kitchen so this can come in handy when perhaps the party consists of more than one family or age groups booking together.
When staying with us we have local concierge services provided by the house manager to help with airport transfers, car rentals, trips and tours, restaurant reservations, snorkelling with turtles, day trips to the Grenadines and much much more. So plan ahead and let us know what sort of things we can help you with to make your stay a special one.
