About Sheila Jacobs

Shelsea owners are Sheila & Jon Jacobs from the UK.

Sheila Jacobs purchased this villa in 2005

Why Sheila Jacobs chose Maxwell Beach

We love Shelsea for the beautiful gardens, relaxing, welcoming feel and proximity to the beach and shops & restaurants of the South Coast.

We bought this property having married in Barbados in 1985 and spending many happy holidays here.

What makes this villa unique

Very close to the beach - no roads to cross so no need to dress to go to/from the beach. The garden is fantastic - we have a wonderful collection of tropical flowers, plants and trees. My favourite time is 5pm through to dusk when all the birds return home to sleep and the whistling frogs start their melody - just amazing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Family Reunion/Christmas 2012"



Shelsea was the perfect place to act as home base for our family members ( 16 of us age12-76) as we celebrated ChristmasNew Years and our return to the island after 4 of us spent 1972 living here! Other family members had rented smaller places that were within walking distance but they were all jealous at how spacious, clean and luxurious Shelsea was. We had a barbeque for Christmas day which was really fun. Dinner on the patio was a wonderful family time. Charile's restaurant just up the lane was perfect for dinner after a long day of driving around the island, a day at the beach or exploring the interior of the island. The beautiful beach down the lane was perfect for an early morning swim/watching the sunset but the kids really enjoyed the bigger waves and the monkeys at Maxwell beach just down the road and the action (and snorkeling) at accra beach ( a 5 min drive) for boogie boarding. Proximity to the Gap kept our teenagers/young adults happy with shopping and nightlife. Everyone looked forward to Fridays for the fish fry and dancing at Oistins. We had a car for the whole 2 weeks but it was not a necessity as the bus is really easy and cheap and taxis, even for large groups are just a call away)

Yvonne, Ron, Paul and Lou made sure we had everything we needed and booking/organizing the rental with Sheila was a breeze.We certainly got our monies worth!!

We highly recommend this location and the island. Everyone is super friendly, very safe, family oriented, the reefs are amazing if you are a diver ( The Dive Shop in Carlisle Bay ), lots of turtles, gorgeous beaches ( spend 2 days at the Crane- my favorite!!). One of the highlights of our trip was "Good Times" catamaran. We chartered the boat for a sunset cruise and we were treated like royalty from the minute they picked us up. Kenneth the captain provided lots of history and general knowledge of beautiful Barbados.

We will be back for Christmas 2015!!!

Perfect Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the most amazing holiday at Shelsea villa. Everything was perfect. The villa is like home from home with everything you might need for a relaxing, trouble-free vacation. Sheila had even provided basic groceries for our arrival and we really enjoyed the luxury of a well-stocked bookcase for our holiday reading.

The garden is beautiful and we were fascinated by the tropical trees and plants. Humming birds and little yellow breasted birds breakfasted with us every day and we spent lots of time taking pictures of them.

It was a change for us to experience self-catering rather than stay in a hotel but we will certainly go that way again! So much more fun to be able to choose where and when to eat and we ate at many different restaurants including Oistins fish fry on the Friday night. All very reasonable and such good food.

The beach was fabulous - white sand and not a bit crowded. Clear, azure sea to bathe in - who could wish for more. We hired a car to see the island but could have managed without as the location is so convenient.

Shelsea was wonderful - highly recommended! Thank you Sheila, Ronnie, Lou and Yvonne for your care and friendship. A very special holiday for us and we will certainly return as soon as possible.

LOOK NO FURTHER...THIS IS PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
If you want to feel you have been on vacation in Paradise, this is the place for YOU! We decided to try renting rather than staying in a hotel after 12 years of spending our holiday in a very nice hotel. We thought should we try something different...WOW....Staying at Shelsea REALLY made a world of difference in the quality and peacefulness we experienced on holiday. It is actually hard to put into words how exceptional this treasure has become to us....So much so, we have made reservations for a repeat and have extended the time to 34 nights!!!
Imagine yourself tucked away in a tropical paradise, a beautiful garden to look at every morning with tea or coffee and every comfort of home. If you rent a car, no problem and if you do not, you can walk or call a cab. Everything is easy, including the extremely short walk to the beach access. This is a home, not a house...simply kick back and enjoy every moment! We cannot wait to get back to Shelsea!

Shelsea fantastic.

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a wonderful week in Barbados. The villa was fabulous and better than expected. It was a last minute booking and Sheila was very helpful answering all our questions and providing a welcoming environment including basic groceries for our arrival. We appreciated the local contacts who were also helpful – Ron, Lou, Yvonne and Vike.

Shelsea is clean and comfortable and felt like home from home. The facilities for cooking, beds and wardrobe space etc all great. Plenty of fans and AC to keep the house cool. The large tropical gardens are beautiful and provided cool shade when we needed it. The beach is very close by and we made good use of that. Oistins with supermarket and bank is just down the road. All great!

We’ve stayed in other rented places but Shelsea is the best so far! Highly recommended.

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic trip! Barbados is a beautiful island and Shelsea surpassed our expectations. Situated less than two minutes walk to a stunning beach, a very friendly local bar a short stroll away and a comprehensive supermarket within walking distance.

Shelsea itself is a lovely well appointed home with a great veranda looking over the gardens (regularly tended by Vike). Many evenings were spent sitting in the peaceful surroundings with a glass of wine, perfect after a day in the sun.
Everyone was so helpful and friendly – thanks particularly to Ronnie, Fiona and Yvonne.

Special thanks to Sheila whose constant help with arrangements meant everything went smoothly from start to finish.

We will definitely return – hopefully in the not too distant future.

The perfect, affordable getaway

  • 5 of 5
Shelsea was everything it had been described and more. The home is spacious, clean and inviting. The outdoor porch is where we lived, eat, drank and relaxed. Bedrooms are large, have air conditioners and new, firm mattresses. The yard and garden are lovely and the gigantic mango tree provided us with breakfast everyday. The beach is but a 4 minute walk, but better beaches are only a short drive, such as accra Beach, which proved to be our favorite. The home is an easy walk to Oistins and several restaurants and ideally located for visits to all parts of the island. We loved Barbados and Shelsea and will, no doubt, be back.

Best Vacation yet

  • 5 of 5
The communication with Sheila was excellent. She answered all our questions quickly through emails, and was able to accommodate when we wanted to add some extra days due to travel times. Payments were easily arranged and the invoicing was very clear to understand. When we arrived we got a van taxi from the airport, we had directions to the house but a quick clarifying phone call and we were on our way. Ron met us with the keys and gave us a tour of the house and familiarized us with everything. The house is all anyone could ask for with all the comforts of home. Tastefully decorated, everything was clean and in good working order. We loved the deck and spent most of our time there shaded from the sun if we needed, watching the birds,and admiring the flowers. Every morning fresh mango's from the tree in the yard. There was basic groceries to get us through to morning until we could shop. Our first stop was the quick walk down the lane to the beach then off to Charlies Bar for dinner. There are corner stores close by for snacks and necessary items. Fish market, vegetable stands and groceries could be found at Oiston's all within walking distance or a quick bus ride away. Oiston's is a must see on Friday or Saturday night. St Laurence Gap is close by with great restaurants. We made arrangements with our airport taxi driver to take us to a farmers market and also arranged a private island tour. We took a bus into Bridgetown and did some sightseeing. Maxwell beach was beautiful and we never felt more safe. We spent morning and afternoon in the water. There is a great reef not far from shore for snorkeling even for novices. The water was gentle for swimming and lots of space on the beach for sunbathing even with 2 hotels close by. There were 5 of us in our family group, all adults but agreed it would be a great place for anyone with children of all ages. We couldn't think of anything wrong with our stay it was the best vacation. It was so relaxing, it was far better than ever staying in a hotel with great furniture for sitting and enjoying a good book, playing games or internet time. There was some construction going on at a building close by that was a bit noisy but was not enough to be bother us.
