About Sheila Jacobs
Shelsea owners are Sheila & Jon Jacobs from the UK.
Sheila Jacobs purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Sheila Jacobs chose Welches
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!

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.
Thank you very much! We are thrilled to read yet another wonderful review for Shelsea and so glad to know our guests are happy staying there. We try our hardest to provide a great service and the reviews speak for themselves!
Absolutely loved it.
Recently returned from a two week stay at Shelsea and we really did not want to leave.
The house is beautiful, the garden is a delight....so peaceful. Everywhere is so well kept, inside and outside. We spent many hours just sitting on the veranda watching the wildlife.
Inside of the house is so lovely, the beds are really good, plenty of clean linen, loads of beach towels. The kitchen is very well stocked with good quality pots and pans, no problem to whip up a meal for the 6 of us.
From arrival to leaving we were looked after really well by Lou and housekeeper Yvonne.
The location of Shelsea is great, very handy for beaches, eateries, supermarkets.
We hired a vehicle for our stay as we like the freedom of our own transport but you can quite easily get about on public transport.
Also communications with the owner was first class.
We will definitely return to Shelsea.
Really enjoyed it, lovely place and would thoroughly recommend
Really enjoyed it
The location is amazing, only 2 minutes walk from a stunning beach with white sand and turquoise sea. A couple of bars are 2 or 3 minutes walk away. Oistins and a large supermarket are a 15 minutes stroll away.
The villa itself easily sleeps 6 with 3 good sized bedrooms all air conditioned. The garden is beautiful and we saw humming birds and had a green monkey visit us.
Sheila was so helpful from the moment we booked the villa and provided loads of information. On arrival we were met by Lou who again was really helpful.
We had an amazing holiday in Barbados and can’t wait to return
Shelsea, one word - Fantastic
This villa is amazing., the kitchen had every thing you could possibly need, the outside dining area was lovely, the rooms were spacious and airy and no attention to detail was spared. Information on the villa and surrounding areas was provided which was a great help.
The location couldn't be bettered, 2 minutes walk to an amazing beach with white sand and turquoise sea, incredible. There was a couple of bars near by and it was only a 15 minute stroll to Oistins for the fish fry night.
I really can't recommend this villa enough, superb.
A wonderful place to stay and enjoy Barbados' beaches and sunshine!
Shelsea was the perfect escape for our family of five. The house offers all the conveniences of home, a lightening quick walk to the beach, close proximity to the bank, grocery store and Oistin's fish market. Thank you to Sheila and Lou for ensuring we had a wonderful holiday!
