Description from manager

A stay at Nelson Gay unveils six decades of charm and sophistication presented over 1.5 acres of mature and immaculately lush gardens. Located on a beautiful half-mile of beach on the outskirts of Speightstown Barbados, its surrounding waters and reef are a playground for swimmers and snorkelers.

The elegant coral stone mansion was originally built as the home of a United States Ambassador in the 1950s, and reflects a Palladian grandeur with 14-foot ceilings in the living room. To add to this, the villa's stunning 50-foot pool is tiled in Italian mosaics depicting turtle and fish, and positioned like a path from the centre of the house that summons the sea on its farthest end.

This family-friendly villa has a bounty of restful spaces and formal or al fresco dining areas, including a delightful option to dine by candlelight. The dwelling features a predominantly white canvas - a compliment to the tropical landscape - and is accentuated with several unique pieces and antiques. The sleeping quarters are remarkably fresh and airy, with comfortable beds, quality cotton sheets and hypoallergenic pillows.

Further outside are two charming chattel houses and a guest cottage, all with en suite bathrooms as well as an elegant garden gazebo complete with a wet bar. Two covered terraces on the north and south wing bedrooms offer additional privacy and comfort, while on the seaside, guests can enjoy safe swimming and snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters.

The Villa Manager and their diligent staff are fully dedicated to your needs during your stay, and will make your holiday truly relaxing, stress-free and unforgettable.
