Villa Nelson Gay, Barbados is an opulent Palladian mansion made of coral stone and featuring eight luxurious bedrooms and seven baths. With a capacity of eighteen guests, this is the ideal location for large gatherings – perhaps a corporate getaway or a destination wedding?
Situated on nearly two acres, this beachfront estate faces directly onto a half-mile expanse of beach, roped off for safety and perfect for water sports. A coral reef offers excellent snorkeling.
Your first experience of the house will be the refined entrance hall, featuring a marble floor, tropical plants, breezy latticework and visually stunning sculptures. The hall leads into the living room, with a view of the pool, gardens, and the sea beyond. The house is built on a single level, with a central living area located between two wings. The rooms are large, airy and elegant, and the white color scheme with green accents evokes the tropics.
In the south wing, you will find the gourmet kitchen and opulent formal dining area. The north wing contains the bedrooms, including the Mural Room which opens onto the pool and the gardens. All are well-appointed, and two are located in cottages on the grounds. You and your guests can choose from rooms with king, queen, or two twin beds.
The lounge area is shaded and equipped with ceiling fans. It opens onto the gardens and the pool. The 50-foot pool features Italian tiling with inlaid mosaics and is the perfect setting for relaxing with cocktails in the evening. From the pool, you can progress to the garden, and finally to the beach by means of a private gate.
