About the Property

Luxury Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10 ) close to the beach near Holetown

'One of the top 30 Villas to rent in the Caribbean' - The Times Newspaper , November 16th 2013.

Villa Melissa is a charming villa on the west coast of Barbados which can be rented on a 5 bedroom basis. It is located in quiet landscaped gardens with a negative edge pool and beach style bar but just a 2 min walk to the beach by private path. Its a classical house with all the modern conveniences with fibre optic wifi throughout and a 60 inch flat in the main house. Life is spent around the pool and bar with occasional trips to the beach which is 2 mins away.

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 ft 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. We include a bottle of rum punch, 6 beers and a bottle of wine with each new booking.

The bar is of a driftwood design and a cool place to hang out. Basic spirits and cocktail mixes are available and Reco will make cocktails to suit. There is a Sonos music system do don't forget your ipod.

Bedrooms are air-conditioned and rentals come with the services of our casual Butler Rico, Patricia our cook and Grace our maid. The staff lay out beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach and provide a walkie talkie for additional supplies for the cooler as needed. The house is staffed and comes with Patsy our cook, Grace our maid and Reco our informal butler who love nothing better than looking after our guests and their children.There is an air-conditioned media room with a 60 inch Flat screen Smart TV with cable, wifi, ipod dock and dvd player to keep everyone happy.

All bedrooms are air conditioned and have ensuite bathrooms.

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.

Our local concierge is provided to help with airport transfers, car rentals, trips and tours, restaurant reservations, day trips to the Grenadines and much much more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I divide my time between barbados and the Uk so constantly on top of the Villa. I also have a local business selling real estate and renting villa other than my own. So when you rent mine you also get all the services of our local holetown concierge included and a lot of great advice. Barbados is a special place and local knowledge like ours can make your holiday even better.

Why the Owner Chose Porters, Barbados:
I used to work on the Island in the Hotel business and when I persued an opportunity in the Uk I decided to do short term rentals. This location is the best spot on the west coast in my opinion, as its on a private road that leads to the beach, its quiet and only other home owners and staff access it. I can be on the beach in 2 mins and walk north and south to great restaurants and hotels or swim or water ski or be picked up off the beach by boat for a sail. Our Property Manager and Concierge Kerrie does a great job of making sure our guests our well looked after and that anything you need help or advice with is done.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This is a great house for families or groups of friends as you can rent the house with 3 beds or add on the cottage for 4 or 5 beds giving veryone a little space. The cottage also has a kitchen. When booking you get 3 staff including Patsy our cook, Reco our Butler and amazing Grace who cleans up after you so you can do as much or as little as you like. Our beach service means you can spend the day on the beach and pop back for lunch or a snooze in the garden as you want. Reco will ensure that you are well looked after and mix rum cocktails and do all in his power to make sure you enjoy yourselves.
