Originally a simple beach house, the villa was transformed by Oliver Messel during the 1960s into an outstanding estate. This elegant villa is much sought after by families and friends seeking a spectacular setting for a memorable holiday.
Set in over two acres of grounds resembling a botanical garden, the villa is one of the largest villas for rental in Barbados and has an enviable setting just above a secluded and very private sandy cove. The accommodation is extensive and classically exhibits Messel’s trademark of bringing together house and garden in harmony. This is perfectly demonstrated in the formal dining terrace which has pillars and arches that open onto the garden and a Roman fountain. A glorious 14 m swimming pool, set within a grass terrace, is located near a romantic dining terrace on the cliff ’s edge. Steps lead to a secluded beach cove below, where a Sunfish sail boat is for guests’ use.
