About the property

Amazing ocean views of Barbados east coast, luxury 1-bedroom villa, private pool

Spring Bay Villa is a charming, contemporary-styled solace, tucked away in the amazing ocean-view setting of Ragged Point on Barbados' rugged south-east coast. On arrival, you are welcomed through its traditional porch entrance, into its classic coral stoned interiors and onto a private pool crowned with tropical garden views on the ground level and gorgeous ocean views on the upper terraces.

With once weekly housekeeper/cook services included (and Optional Chef services available), the villa's luxury amenities and its peaceful setting come together to offer you the blissful, tropical retreat you are seeking.

This 1-bedroom haven is ideal for a couple on their honeymoon or a small group of friends looking to spend quality time together. (Please enquire about rates for 2 or 3-bedroom occupancy). Wake up to an amazing sunrise best viewed from the villa's upper terrace where you can also top off your day with a rum cocktail on a sultry moon-lit night.

At Spring Bay Villa, you will enjoy weekly Housekeeper/Cook services, a Master suite with air conditioning, en-suite "spa-like" bathroom with Jacuzzi and walk-in closet. You can enjoy your meals on the pool terrace or at the airy dining room table adjacent to the inviting living room with a large flat-screen television.

Spring Bay Villa boasts a modern, well-equipped kitchen, a sun-deck with loungers and lovely views of Ragged Point Lighthouse and a Cocktail Balcony which offers up some of the best sunrise and moonlight views on the island.

When it comes to exploring the island, a rental car is strongly recommended as it will allow you to tour the island, spend the day at the amazing Bottom Bay beach and other gorgeous island beaches, pick up groceries, drive to Oistins for the its "not-to-be-missed" grilled fish and generally discover our beautiful island Barbados.

Spring Bay Villa is managed by Melba who has over 20 years' experience in the hospitality, event planning and catering industries. She will help you plan your stay on the island by organizing car rental, excursions, activities and restaurant dining if that is what you desire. If you prefer to do your own thing when the mood takes you, she is just as happy to provide all the recommendations and tips to help you enjoy Barbados your own way. There is also a Handbook that details all you need to know about the villa, the amenities and general information to make your stay an enjoyable one.

If you are celebrating a special occasion, or planning to create one such as getting married or hosting a special event, as an experienced event planner, Melba will be more than happy to assist you with all the arrangements. It could be as simple as a dinner for two prepared by the villa's cook or a local Chef or a lovely evening of wine and canapes shared among friends, we are here to help you celebrate life during your stay at Spring Bay Villa.

We look forward to welcoming you.

About The Owner

I am Melba Wood and my passion lies in the hospitality industry and all its facets. I love to cook, entertain and to share life's simple, precious moments with family and friends.

My entire working life has been meeting and working with people from all over the world. I have worked as a Tour Representative for German, French and British Tour Operators and have met some wonderful people over the years. I later evolved into wedding and event planning, catering and cake baking and decorating.

Spring Bay Villa spent its first 5 years almost exclusively on the Homeaway rental market from 2008 to 2013 and ranked high with renter reviews. (Potential renters can request copies of these reviews since they are not on the Listing due to obvious datedness). It is back on the market now and I am happy to welcome you and all future tenants to your home away from home.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why The Owner chose Saint Philip

This beautiful villa came about as a result of a recurrent dream of the Lighthouse being seen from a lounge chair in a distance. Some time afterward, I saw an ad for land lots being sold near the Lighthouse and right there is where my dream started to take shape.

I was born and grew up in the East in St Philip so this part of Barbados is very dear to me. Spring Bay Villa is named after the small, secluded pink sand beach which sits below the cliff off the Ragged Point Lighthouse. (Unfortunately, the very limited access to Spring Bay is very dangerous).

Spring Bay Villa is truly a labour of love since I designed it and was intimately involved with its construction and interior design as well. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

What makes this villa unique

You will enjoy the peacefulness of the Ragged Point area, the beautiful ocean views and you will benefit from the fresh, therapeutic breezes off the Atlantic ocean. I hope that this, combined with the comfort of Spring Bay Villa and the charm of Barbados and its people, will make for a truly wonderful stay on our island home.

Stunning villa in a peaceful setting. Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Spring Bay Villa in April 2017 for 2 weeks and cannot rate this property high enough. The setting is so peaceful and both roof terraces are fantastic areas to spend a quiet night in and star gaze. The pool area is spacous with plenty of shade should you need to escape the sun's rays. The interior of the villa is decorated and maintained to a high standard with a kitchen that has everything you could possibly wish for and need. Melba is an amazing host and greets you with a tasty rum punch upon arrival. We didn't see much of Melba during our stay which I suppose is as it should be as it meant we did not encounter any problems for which we needed assistance with. However we knew she was just a phone call away should any problems have arisen. I would say car hire is a must if you want to get around and explore the many beaches and attractions Barbados has to offer. Being on the east coast your closest beaches are the east coast beaches - Crane beach, Bottom Bay, Foul Bay, then Batsheba in the opposite direction. I loved everything about the villa and I cannot think of anything negative to say at all. A very memorable place for all the right reasons. Thank you Melba!

Better than we could have imagined

  • 5 of 5

Cant speak Highly enough of Melba or her Villa! The Villa is absolutely gorgeous for one! It is well furnished, the private pool is amazing, there is a full kitchen, private sun decks to watch the sunset/sunrise. Could not have asked for a better honeymoon spot. Just the design and location of the villa would be enough by itself... but Melba was exceptional! she provided travel advise, gave a us a full tour of the villa, warned us when a tropical storm was approaching, was available whenever we had a question or needed guidance, and to top it all off had a pitcher of homemade rum punch for us when we arrived! Thank you Melba and Spring Bay villa for an absolutely unforgettable honeymoon!! :)

Owner's Response: I must apologize for my late response to Tracker's review. Tracker and Cairen are an amazing, sweet couple and so very charming. I fell in love with Tracker's southern accent and Cairen's warmth. They left the villa in immaculate condition and were a pleasure to host. I would welcome them back to the villa anytime at all. I am so happy they enjoyed their stay.

Spacious and Spotless, a perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time, the villa suited our needs perfectly.

Two sun balconies a very private pool and garden, a very clean and comfortable living space and a superb kitchen. Just what we needed, simple relaxation in a beautiful setting.

We were a little unsure about booking this villa initially due the lack of recent reviews but are so glad we did.

All of our needs were catered for.The villa was too much for two people but sometimes it is good to spoil yourself.

Our holiday consisted of 5 nights in the more lively Oistins area and then 5 nights in Spring Villa. Our only regret is that we were only there for 5 nights.

We are couple in our 50's and manged pretty well without a car but can see why one would have been very convenient. The whole area was lovely and everyone was so friendly.

We would highly recommend this villa to people who prefer a little privacy and enjoy a little luxury.

Owner's Response: It was an absolute pleasure having Jayne and her guest stay in my vacation rental. They were very communicative prior to their arrival and also during their stay. Even though I did not meet them personally (I had to travel unexpectedly), my representative Jackie relayed that they were very kind and I saw this for myself on my return when I had occasion to speak with them on the phone. I am very pleased to know that they had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Spring Bay Villa . They left the villa in perfect condition and treated it as if it were their own. I would welcome the opportunity to have them stay at Spring Bay Villa anytime they choose to do so.
