We love this villa because...
the staff are amazing, the poolside bar is the perfect spot to gather round before or after dinner, the beach is just short stroll away down a lovely sandy beach path and the light show from the pool at night creates a truly enchanting atmosphere

Villa Melissa is a perfect family villa in Barbados. It offers 5 bedrooms - with 3 bedrooms in the main house and a 2 bedroom cottage. “The Times” UK  listed Villa Melissa as one of the top 30 Caribbean Villas.

The large salt water swimming pool at Villa Melissa sits in the middle of picturesque and spacious gardens. This villa is particularly suited for families.

The pool is divided into two areas by stepping stones creating a 3 ft. shallow end ideal for children. There is comfortable seating close by so they can be watched from the water's edge. On the other side of the stepping stones is a deeper swimming area. This area is 4.6 “ deep throughout for those who want to do lengths.

For further guest enjoyment, the new bar has a great, relaxed, beach bar feel about it. Constructed of driftwood timbers with a tiki roof  this is the perfect spot for pre-dinner cocktails or a nightcap. It has 10 bar stools around the bar so everyone can be included.

The bar also has Sonos so bring your own music to enjoy.

The  gardens of Villa Melissa are beautifully landscaped. Villa Melissa is located on a private road that leads to the beach path. It is only about a 3 minute walk to the beach. Enjoy beach life but escape to the oasis of the house and garden as and when you feel like it.

Barbados is a fabulous holiday destination at any time of the year. It has many white sandy beaches fringed by the warm Caribbean Sea. Barbados has some of the friendliest Caribbean people you'll ever meet.

Located on the popular West Coast in the parish of St James, Villa Melissa is just a short drive to Holetown. Here you will find a selection of shops, restaurants and bars. If you like a stroll on the beach you will find many luxury hotel resorts just a short walk away. Villa Melissa is walking distance from hotel resorts such as Coral Reef Club, Colony Club, Royal Pavilion and Glitter Bay.

As with many Caribbean Villas, holiday life is centred around outdoor living. Relax and soak up the Caribbean atmosphere and the hospitality of the Caribbean Villa staff.

Villa Melissa is no exception and the friendly staff will make sure guests have a relaxing time. Villa Melissa's warm hearted cook, Patricia, will prepare mouth watering meals. Grace, the housekeeper, will keep the villa clean with a smile and a twinkle in her eye! Riki, the general assistant will help with food, beverages and many more services.

All of the five bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and ceiling fans. There is a combination of King, Queen and twin beds to suit most requirements.

The separate cottage in the garden is completely built of old coral stone.  It has 2 bedrooms ( the master has a four poster bed) with en-suite bathrooms.

Reviews from past guests:

We had a great time at Villa Melissa - it was the perfect setup for our family, and our daughter absolutely LOVED the pool as well as the pool and sand toys.  She actually learned how to swim on this trip.

Ricky was great and we enjoyed many a rum punch at the bar.

Patricia is such a wonderful cook and she easily accommodated us even when we had a couple last minute requests.

The boat ride was definitely a highlight of our trip - not only did we have the perfect sunset but the crew was excellent and the food and drink service were well beyond our expectations so it was a real treat.

Patricia, Grace and Ricky absolutely made my holiday.

Patricia is a fantastic cook and i recommend you utilise her as much as you can during your stay.  Grace is always happy to see you and is never not smiling.  a loverly lady to be around.  Ricky is not only the master of cocktains but a fountain of knowledge too.  All three of them made this the best holiday of my life.

24 October 2018

We had a wonderful holiday and staying at Villa Melissa was made exceedingly special by first and foremost, Patricia, and Ricky and Grace.  We give them our heartfelt thanks for looking after us each and every day.  Patricia - your cooking is 1st class.  Better than Lone Star and even The Cliff.  Open your own restaurant - we will come !  My love to you always.

Ricky - don't stop doing what you do.  Best drinks and cocktails ever !

With all our love,

Thank you so much Patricia, Grace and Rodney for looking after us so well.  Patricia - you are the best chef ever !

Fantastic holiday for all the family celebrating our mum's/granny's 70th Birthday.

Villa Melissa is just perfect.

I cannot thank you and the whole Villa Melissa/Worldwide team enough for making our stay so very wonderfully relaxing and memorable . Grace and Ricardo were fantastic, but Patricia was exceptional ! They all made us instantly feel at home with nothing being too much trouble. Celeste and Sandy were also amazing both before and during the trip.

Really there is nothing I can suggest that should be changed and we are already looking at dates for a return visit!!

A wonderful second stay at Villa Melissa.  The ladies made our stay even more perfect and we missed them so much when they weren’t here.  Patricia has made us gain nearly a stone with her tremendous cooking.  Thank you for everything!  16 April 2017

Our first visit was great but our second was even better.  The wonderful Patricia backed up by the lovely Nicole and the ever busy Grace, all attending to all our needs.  It was a delight to return to Barbados at Villa Melissa and I have no doubt there will be a third visit.  Thanks to all from the whole gang.  16 April 2017

Thank you to Patricia, Nicole and Grace for looking after us all so well and making our stay a dream holiday.  Patricia’s cooking was always fabulous and Nicole made sure we always had everything we needed.  Grace made sure our rooms were always spotless and our laundry was all done !!  We wish we could take you all home with us, the kids will miss you all as much as us.  We would love to come back to Villa Melissa soon.  Ande, Lee, Bobby, Charlie, Claire, Graeme, Callum and Leah xxx   23 April 2017

We can’t thank the three of you, Patricia, Rodney and Grace, enough for making our first trip to Barbados so memorable!  You’ve set a very high standard with your hospitality, warmth and care.  Patricia, I am going to figure out a way I can steal you and bring you back to Canada.  Your beautiful cooking really made this trip a holiday for me – thank you so much !  Rodney & Grace, your excellent care and help made us want for nothing during our stay.  It is so hard for us to leave.  We are so grateful to now feel like we have a family in Barbados that we look forward to coming back to visit.  Thank you for making our stay a fun, relaxing and restorative week.  With love – Scott, Paris, Lily and Callum

Thank you for looking after the gang.  We hope to see you again, but the next time will be longer for sure!  The Grays (Kelly, Paul and James)  24 March 2017

One word – FABULOUS !!!   26 November 2016

This was a family holiday to celebrate our daughter’s 50th birthday, her choice of house was inspired.  The villa setting and location were all excellent surpassed only by “TEAM MELISSA” : Patricia is a cook of the Gods, Rico the perfect smiling host and Grace who keeps everything and us ship shape.  Thank you so much for everything and we hope to meet again.   26 November 2016

Bad Luck – we liked it so much that we will definitely be back!  Thank you for making our holiday so special!  26 November 2016

Our first visit to Barbados has been beyond our wildest expectations.  Villa Melissa has felt like our home from home.  Patricia’s outstanding food and Rico’s smiling face will be remembered as they have made us feel like family.  We thank you all and hope to be back !!!  26 November 2016

I just wanted to drop you a message and say how much we loved Barbados and staying in your villa. You really have a beautiful place that's been well thought out and furnished very nicely. My family and friends all had a great time. 


The 3 ladies (Patricia Nicole and Grace) were so welcoming and really helpful.


We'll definitely be back.


Thanks again

Hi Sonia

Firstly, a huge thank you to yourself for organising everything for us. Everyone had a wonderful time, and the weather was great to top it off!

The staff were fantastic - they couldn't have been more helpful and efficient. And the food...well, fabulous!

The only regret we have is not staying longer, so next time it's definitely two weeks.

So once again, thank you for all of your help; the villa was stunning. No pictures seem to do it justice!

Many thanks



"We had a great and memorable vacation. "It's the people who make the place" and this is true of the Villa. Patricia, Desmond and Michelle were just that for us! We will miss them and we have no complaints."
Goodridge family - June 2013

We had a fantastic holiday, thanks. Victor, Patricia and Michelle looked after us wonderfully well. We all loved the villa, it was perfect for our group. There were a few comments about the pool being rather small, but then the sea was only a few minutes walk away. A beautiful position

Desmond, Patricia, and Michelle were top-notch, as well. They made sure we didn't want for anything during our stay. Desmond took great care of us - my glass was never empty! Patricia spoiled us with her delicious meals - the pineapple rum cake she baked for Carla's birthday was fabulous! And her flying fish was by-far the best we ate on the island! And thanks to Michelle - I was truly rested because she kept the villa/cottage nice and neat. And no dirty clothes going home - Thanks Michelle!
Derek and I have already talked about coming back
16th  November 2013 issue of “The Times” Villa Melissa was recently included as one of the top 30 Caribbean Villas

We had an absolutely wonderful time in Barbados and your villa is splendid and perfect for our group. Victor was amazing and did a fantastic job – you have a great asset in him – Patricia and Michelle also did a great job. Everything went really well and our family and our guests enjoyed it all immensely. Victor certainly helped to make our holiday a memorable and exceptional occasion.


We would love to think that we will return again in the future and we will be keeping this in mind if a future opportunity arises.


your service, the villa staff and the Villa itself were excellent
we had a great time and really liked Barbados. Will hopefully plan again for around about the same time next year, maybe Barbados again or somewhere else hot!
I wanted to send you a note letting you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Villa Melissa. Let me start by stating what a marvelous man Victor is. Of course he is willing to cater to your needs but its truly his amazing spirit that makes you feel so comfortable. Patricia is truly a gem too..her warm smile is always there to greet you not to mention the delicious meals she prepared for us. Also Michele keeps the place spotless and was always asking if everything was ok. She even washed all our clothes the day we were leaving! It was our 3rd trip to the Island and our first to this villa which we hope to return to again. We really love Barbados and all the friendly people we met. We took a catamaran trip on and rented waverunners, waterskied, wakeboarded, shopped and visited the Cliffs and caves, etc. Thank you for providing us with the most excellent staff ever! Look for my review on Trip Advisor soon!
We really enjoyed ourselves at Villa Melissa. All the staff were wonderful and really made it so relaxing
We cannot say enough about how wonderful your home was, the space was beautiful and suited us perfectly! My husband and I stayed in the cottage and loved how much privacy we had from the house. It really was perfect for our group. I am sure that you hear it all the time, but Maria and Victor are simply amazing! Within a few minutes of knowing them, we were very comfortable and we felt like family.

Victor, Maria, and Michelle went above and beyond any expectations we had and if the opportunity ever came again, I would definitely return to Villa Melissa.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at Villa Melissa. It was a perfect vacation for our family and your staff is absolutely great! We especially loved Heather's delicious cooking(as good as the food on our cruise ship) and Victor, of course, is such a sweetheart. As it was our first villa vacation, it did take us a while to figure things out(staff, cooking, shopping, etc.), but once we did, it was so enjoyable. We will definitely consider it for another vacation. Thanks also for all your advice and help.

We had a fantastic time at Villa Melissa as always and were looked after fantastically by Victor, Maria and Michelle.
We hope very much that we will return again.

With kind regards

Carl & Claire Goossens

Thank you for a fabulous vacation! Our families thoroughly enjoyed Barbados and Villa Melissa. Victor, Maria and Michelle are gems and made our holiday perfect. Your home is beautiful and honestly, the website does not do it justice. We hope to return again!

We had such a wonderful time, the house is delightful and Victor, Maria and Michelle, all outstanding in their own unique ways.  They made our stay so comfortable and welcoming, its been hard coming back home and having to think what needs doing etc......   (the villa) certainly fits the bill and we will definitely come back again.

We had a fantastic time all the staff made the holiday very special
We did have a wonderful holiday and have in fact recommended Villa Melissa to friends of ours - Claire
We completely surrendered to the charm and grace of Victor, Maria and Pauline. Everything from the first tea to the sandwiches made for the trip home were excellent. We enjoyed a wide range of cuisine and especially loved the fish that Maria prepared......
Victor was outstanding and never hesitated to fulfill a request. He was patient, pleasant and expedient in his tasks and we very much felt at ease within his care. He was outstanding. Pauline was also very capable and did an excellent job of keeping everything clean and keeping us in towels and linens.......
We would love to come back again as we had an amazing vacation at Villa Melissa. Thank You,
