Villa Melissa is what Villa holidays in Barbados are all about . This Barbados Villa that can be rented in its entirety as a 5 bedroom Villa rental, 4 bedrooms with the master cottage bed room 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. Full Concierge Service provided.

As with many Caribbean rental Villas, holiday life is centred around out door living and soaking up the Caribbean atmosphere and the hospitality of the Bajan Villa staff. Villa Melissa is no exception. The rate includes three staff , Patricia the cook who cooks great food, Nadine the maid and laundress and our very popular laid back Butler Desmond who makes mean rum punches and looks after everyone They have become firm favourites with returning families who's children regard them as part of the holiday and Victor has been known to teach them the art of cricket in the back garden, how to fold napkins and make Mum and Dad the perfect rum punch!

A new media room was added to the house in October 2013 which has a 60 inch Smart TV and is air-conditioned for when you want to escape the heat.

All 5 bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with 2 bathrooms having tubs. The master bedroom in the cottage which is the largest bedroom has a shower and a bath.

The cottage also has a kitchen which is very convenient when 2 families are booking a villa together.

Villa Melissa is comfortable, private and with exceptionally friendly and attentive staff that will have you wanting to come back for another taste of Bajan life again and again. There is also a beach service where we take loungers and umbrellas to the beach ( 2 mins from house) with a cooler drinks and walkie talkie for extra supplies! Watch the world go by from your lounger, take a stroll or have a dip. New knife Edge pool under construction and completion by December 2014

Villa Melissa is also aware of the modern travelers needs and has wireless internet throughout which means you can take your lap top and do your emails by the pool!

The Saint James Parish region

St James is considered the Platinum coast and where most of the luxury Hotels can be found. It has Golf courses, Polo fields and miles of white sandy beaches on the usually calm Caribbean side of the island.

Holetown is the main town which has lots of shops, Supermarket and a new luxury shopping centre "Lime Grove".

Holetown also has a number of very populars restaurants and bars especially in 2nd Street which is busy most Friday and Saturday nights.


Queens Fort was once a private estate but was subdivided into 2 roads with several lots on each which have all now been built on with single storey homes. The land abuts Heron Bay to the south and Batchelor Hall to the North. The Holetown Festival is usually held in March but close to the area are a number of attractions including golf courses at Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane. The nearest hotel is the Colony Club which is about quarter a mile away and a great spot to have a sundowner at before staggering back to the Villa.Walking to Holetown on the beach or north to Lone Star and Ju Ju's for lunch are all regular activities during the day.

"Couldn't recommend it more...."

I travelled to Barbados with 5 friends to celebrate my birthday and stayed in Villa Melissa for 10 days. We absolutely loved the villa (which is 2 minutes walk from the beach) and gardens, we also loved the staff - Victor, who was so friendly and carried loungers to the beach for us every day and packed a cool box of drinks for us. Victor wouldn't so much as let us lift a finger the entire time we stayed and made the whole trip so relaxing. Maria, the cook, also prepared the most wonderful food, to the extent that we all agreed the best dining experiences we had had were not in the islands stunning restaurants, but actually in at the villa! I would thoroughly recommend Villa Melissa to anyone looking to unwind and have a thoroughly memorable holiday.
