This opulent beachfront villa is set within two acres of lush, tropical gardens, provides a magical setting ideal for families or groups looking for a more personalized holiday alternative to the larger hotels on the island. The timeless essence of Leamington's sophisticated yet unpretentious elegance is reminiscent of its past, when famed movie stars Greta Garbo and Claudette Colbert dined under the Caribbean stars, and glamour juxtaposed effortlessly with relaxed island-style living. On entering the gates of Leamington, one feels the pressures of the outside world gently slip away; the sound of waves breaking gently on the white sands, combined with the pleasant sea breezes and intoxicating scent of tropical flowers, creates an air of tranquility that immediately embraces you.
Designed by Oliver Messel, famed English stage designer and architect, Leamington is a fine example of his distinctive style, expertly merging the interior and exterior living spaces to create an idyllic tropical setting for refined island living and entertaining. Messel discovered Leamington when he stayed at the villa in the 1950's; he found it so enticing that he persuaded his friends Dru and Jack Heinz (of Heinz Foods) to purchase the estate. Mrs. Heinz then commissioned Messel to rebuild the Pavilion, and his signature style transformed Leamington into one of the most stunning properties on the island today.
Recently renovated and refurbished, Leamington's meticulous décor blends luxurious furnishings, noteworthy antiques and personalized touches to make the villa truly one of a kind. The villa is filled with European and Caribbean-inspired artwork, including paintings, sculptures and hand-painted furniture, as well as artisanal finishes such as sculpted cornices and coral stone archways. View our brochure.
While Leamington is replete with architectural and design interest, intrinsically it is a home. Recent guests described their first impressions: 'From the instant we arrived, we felt ensconced in luxury…everyone was totally hit by the 'Wow' factor of this beautiful house; it's absolutely stunning yet at the same time, calm and comfortable. You really couldn't ask for better.'
The main salon, located at the centre of the villa, opens onto a large covered terrace with casual dining and living areas, suitable for entertaining large groups and parties, yet cozy enough for a more intimate tête-à-tête. Dark wicker furniture, overstuffed white pillows and billowing curtains create a breezy atmosphere ideal for outdoor living, one of the most enticing features of a Caribbean holiday villa. There is also a separate formal dining room, decorated in the Rococo style, featuring classical statues in corner niches framed by shells and coral, surrounding a stunning marble dining table with an antiqued mirrored top. Flowering trellises adorn the entranceways, creating a romantic atmosphere ideal for candlelit dining on cool Caribbean nights.
Beyond the main terrace is the villa's classically shaped swimming pool, where crystal waters entice guests for early morning laps, midday dips to escape from the heat of the sun and evening soaks beneath the stars. Emerald green lawns flank the pool where chaise lounges await sunbathers, as well as two enchanting gazebos designed by famed local architect, Larry Warren. Painted in the trademark 'Messel Green', the gazebos are topped by two lifelike cast lead Barbadian Green Monkeys and feature Messel-inspired copper chandeliers, both created by Barbadian craftsman James Barrow. The dining gazebo is ideal for casual dining or afternoon tea, while the other features an oversized lounger, inviting chats with friends over a round of rum punches, catching up on the latest novel or sneaking in an afternoon nap. As one guest so aptly stated, Leamington is 'the perfect setting to do nothing; read, talk about things you never get 'round to, watch the sunset – and simply, chill.'
The beautifully landscaped grounds surrounding the pool feature lush, tropical gardens with hibiscus, bougainvillea, orchids, ixoras and ornamental palms. The well-established trees provide natural privacy, ample shade and a relaxed atmosphere. Whimsical bronze statues, a lily pond and inviting nooks for a few quiet moments to read, meditate or simply listen to the waves, help complete the garden's charming allure.
The garden culminates with over 200 ft. of frontage to the Caribbean Sea, where immaculate white sands entice you to sink your toes in, and crystal blue waters hold treasures of a vibrant coral reef just a short swim from shore. Snorkelers can view stunning corals and tropical fish while cavorting with visiting turtles, a delight to all who visit Leamington. For those who prefer land-based activities, there is a beautiful lawn tennis court and small gym on premises, and golf enthusiasts can play the Sandy Lane, Royal Westmoreland and Apes Hill courses, all within 20 minutes' drive.
Leamington's four air-conditioned bedrooms feature charming décor, fine-quality linens and hand-painted furnishings, enhanced by warm lighting, unique artwork and ample yet cozy space for private relaxation. Each features a spacious, en suite marble bathroom, exquisitely decorated with crystal chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling curtains and luxurious linens. Two of the guest rooms are located in one wing off the main salon, while a third guest bedroom and the luxurious master suite, featuring a stunning canopied bed, are located in another more recently built wing designed by Larry Warren. The master bedroom opens onto a trellised sitting area with comfortable seating, a flat-screen television and flowering vines, not to mention stunning views of the manicured gardens and swimming pool. Click here to view the floor plans.
Beyond the enchanting surroundings and luxurious amenities, perhaps one of the most alluring features of your stay at Leamington is the five-star service provided by the villa's experienced staff: 'As much as the house is exquisitely furnished, designed and maintained, it excels most of all because of such wonderful, professional and engaging staff; they are the icing on the Leamington cake.' There is a butler, housekeeper, chef, maid, gardener, night watchman and dedicated property manager on hand to ensure your comfort; it is their objective that you thoroughly enjoy every moment of your holiday from start to finish, leaving with memories to last a lifetime. As a recent guest proclaimed: 'I don’t think we could ever have imagined quite how blissfully relaxing a time we'd have at Leamington. It was from the very first moment to the very last, absolute heaven. The house couldn't have been nicer, the food couldn't have been better and, most importantly, the staff couldn't have been kinder and more wonderfully thoughtful. Their friendliness, warmth and ability to second guess our every wish will never be forgotten.'
While the serene setting and luxurious pampering of the Leamington estate can make one feel miles away from the island's pulsing lifestyle, its location near both historic Speightstown and vibrant Holetown, offers easy access to shopping, fine dining, charming beachfront cafes and vibrant nightlife. Full concierge services are available to assist with reservations and other arrangements.
Leamington Cottage, set just at the water's edge, can be rented in conjunction with the main house should an additional bedroom be needed.
Note: Children welcomed by special request.

Andrea was wonderful she made our holiday perfect. A big thank you to Julie too, she was most helpful at all times.
|The Cebula Family|
What an amazing stay. We've been to many amazing places, this is one of the best.
The staff made our experience exceptional! Edward was there for everything we needed, even before we knew what we needed. McPearson's food was amazing. Pam's smile brighten our day. All of the staff were great. The place was spotless our whole stay. John made sure we were tucked in safe each night.
Thank you to all!
|The Regan Party|
Thank you to this wonderful staff for making our stay so special and memorable. We are ever grateful for this chance to be together with the best of friends and create new memories. We will treasure the laughter, the lovely meals and the opportunity to take in the sun, beach, pool and tennis courts too! The massage was wonderful Edward!! Thank you to our dear friend Rich for being the catalyst and to Wendy for her amazing planning! We loved the Leamington Pavilion!
|The Cormier Party|
Thank you for a wonderful setting to rekindle and strength our bonds of friendship that have been formed over 30 years. We came to celebrate Rich's birthday and all felt like the years since college had faded away. We came from Boston, Annapolis and Southern California. Thank you for opening you home to us. The staff was incredible and spoiled us all. We are all sad to leave. We have begun planning for the next trip!
|The Banard Party|
Leamington made our lives shine with love, laughter and happiness. Being here with our oldest friends from our hometown of Boston was beyond words. As we prepare to leave, our laughter will temporarily be replaced with tears but memories made, will brighten our days for years to come. This home, pool and beach are lovely, however the staff are what really made this trip! Pearson's cooking was fabulous! The care and positivity from Pam, Phillyne, Francis, Kimberly made us fell like a part of the family. John and his evening greetings from our night time adventures allowed us to sleep soundly each night. The captain of the ship, Edward, was simply amazing to us all! We wish we could take them all home with us. May each of them know the love and joy this group of old friends felt here at Leamington! We will never forget.
|The Cebula Party|
I had the pleasure of celebrating my birthday with my closest friends in this slice of paradise that is this villa. The wonder of this place and the hospitality of those who looked after us created memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. You can also know that Leamington has been officially sanctioned as an approved venue Caribbean football and tennis. Thanks again and we hope to return soon.
|The Bennett Family|
The home is gorgeous - but it's the excellent, professional staff that make all the difference! We will miss them.
This is long overdue and I am sorry that we haven't written before to express our gratitude to the staff at Leamington Pavilion for the superlative teamwork and smiling service that they gave us whilst we stayed. The house itself is outstandingly lovely, so gracious and so beautifully presented and maintained. But the contribution that the staff make to a guest's experience is crucial to having 100% satisfaction and this is what we felt - we could not have been more pleased overall. The team were seamless in their delivery of excellent service and they were a great comfort for our very busy family reunion since it was complicated to organise a relatively large group staying in both houses.
|The McKay Party|
We have had such a great time staying at Leamington. The villa was fantastic but it has been the staff's enthusiasm and helpfulness which made our holiday one we will never forget.
Edward in particular has been a brilliant host, organizing meal times, taxis and bookings as well as mixing a great rum punch!
The food was also fantastic thanks to Pearson and the property was left spotless thanks to the maids and cleaners.
Again, the staff made our trip truly unforgettable.
|The Harrison Party|
Thank you all for the most amazing week at Leamington, you have really made it extra special. It has been such a treat to be served delicious breakfast by the always smiling Edward, we will miss that crispy bacon! Nothing has ever been too much - cups of tea by the pool (you can tell we are English!), gin and tonics, wine in the sunshine. We have been well and nicely spoilt. It is such a luxury to go back to a beautiful clean room with our washing done, thank you! It is lucky there is a gym here as the food has been so incredible that we have definitely not been able to stop eating it - the gorgeous fish, all the salads, amazing sauces and what can we say, the chocolate cake to top all chocolate cakes! We would all like the recipe - cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The final night was extra special, gorgeous food, Edward in a bow tie... and David Beckham! Thank you for accommodating our special guest!
We can't thank you all enough, you have made Leamington even more special. We will never forget our week here.
The staff at Leamington are wonderful. Their attention to detail and flexibility are refreshing. Our experience with Blue Sky Luxury was the 'saving grace' to our 5th anniversary trip. We would highly recommend Leamington Pavilion and Blue Sky Luxury to anyone we know. In fact on day two of our vacation I recommended both to a friend of a friend looking for that very special holiday.
|The Baker Family|
A spectacular location, an enchanting home, and the finest staff who greeted us always with beautiful smiling faces.
To the Owner's - thank you for opening your home to our family, we had the most amazing time and created magical memories that will last forever.
To the wonderful staff - Keith, Pearson, Fillyne, Kimberly, Maria, Denis and John, thank you for your warmth, care and generous spirits, you each contributed to making this our most memorable holiday... and for that we are eternally grateful!
'The sand may brush off the salt may wash clean, the tans may fade, but the memories will last forever!'
|The Adams Party|
We have loved, loved, loved your beautiful home which is the epitome of relaxation and elegance and is truly a little bit of paradise! We have loved, loved, loved the marvelously delightful staff - each of whom is the epitome of caring, kindness, helpfulness, graciousness and professionalism. Pearson provided us with the most beautiful and amazing meal of delicious food served with such style and elegance. Keith managed everything with a continuous smile as he took care of every need and question. Filine and Kimberly took such good care of us and our home away from home while Katrina and Valmour kept all spotless. We had a perfectly wonderful vacation with many many wonderful memories.
God bless you all!
|The Ellis Family|
In reading the words printed before mine, I find that mine could only sound like a broken record. The sentiments we have felt perfectly match those of the guests who have stayed before us. We have traveled quite often to the Caribbean but never to Barbados and now know what it feels like to have a true vacation. We have never been so pampered and feel so blessed to be able to enjoy the spoils provided in abundance at Leamington! Everything from Pearson's delicious food, to Keith's impeccable service, cheerfulness and assistance, to "Phils and her team keeping up with a toddler and 3 teenagers, in such a beautiful, calm and helpful manner. Thank you for opening your slice of heaven to us.
|The Coghlan Family|
It is hard to put into words how much we truly enjoyed our vacation. The grounds and Leamington Pavilion itself are truly stunning but nothing surpasses the kindness and hospitality of the incredible staff. Every single member was so truly incredible to our family, it has been such a pleasure. To see and experience Keith & Pearson taking a personal interest in our children makes our trip as the parents so much more blissful. The girls Filine, Kim and Andrea were so wonderful with our family as well. The way that we were taken care of went above and beyond our expectations. Truly it's the people you have working here that make this beautiful home shine. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to relish in this paradise. We look forward to our return.
|Wendy & Toby|
What a FABULOUS week...We have never been anywhere like it. Stunning place and wonderful staff. Ultimate relaxation!! Special thanks to Keith he is the man and makes delicious cocktails. Pearson's food made the week extra incredible. Leamington is the perfect setting to make amazing memories...Thank you so much!
|The Hopkinson Party|
"Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our soul blossom"
How lucky are we that the team here at Leamington Pavilion have made us so happy and allowed our souls to blossom so much? We came in search of paradise...and found it. Service, food and...so much more..delivered by the team here has been fantastic...thank you all so much.
|Lesley & Family|
We would love to take you all home with us! Keith was amazing and attended to our every need - Pearson is the best cook we have ever had the privilege of eating (oops! you know what I mean!!) and Felyne and the team of angels keeping everything pristine, made our holiday a real holiday. Can't wait to come back!
|The Harrison Family|
Having spent the last week in paradise we look forward to the team being with us in November!
|Jane & Family|
Thank you once again for our incredible week at Leamington. Having been here once before, we felt as if we were returning to old friends.
To the entire staff, thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for pampering us like you did. You have made this week one we will never forget.
Take good care of yourselves and your families. Already dreaming about our next visit.
|The Arseneavlt Family|
We had an amazing time at Leamington. The comfort, the service, the food and the Pavilion was really superior than anywhere else. The chef is a really great person, calm and the best I've experienced in traveling. I would hire him in one of my restaurants for sure.
|Jill and Family|
Thank you for providing an incredibly relaxing and fabulous week at Leamington. The villa and the grounds were beautifully maintained. The staff was incredibly attentive and professional. The entire staff made us feel at home with a perfect balance of attentiveness and privacy. Thank you for a wonderful week which will provide years of positive and wonderful memories for our family! We look forward to returning to Leamington!!
|The Payne Family|
It is hard to describe what a great time our family has had at Leamington Pavilion. The staff has been absolutely perfect. The food has been AMAZING! The property is absolutely perfect, from the beach to the pool. The staff couldn't be any better. We can't wait to plan our next vacation to Leamington Pavilion.
|Joe and Family|
We all had a fabulous time! What a home, simply perfect. The staff was absolutely superb! Very professional, courteous and just plain wonderful. I would recommend Leamington to anyone! Thank you for making our vacation a memorable one!
"Paradise found!" We have been coming to Barbados for over 20 years, staying in many lovely beachfront villas - I'm not quite sure how it has taken us so long to discover the beautiful Leamington Pavilion, but now found will hopefully never be lost!
The setting and building are spectacular but what makes it so special are the people inside. They are a pleasure to be around and nothing is too much trouble.
|The Wajs Party|
It was only 5 days at the lovely Leamington Pavilion but they were filled with unequaled indulgence. The staff at the house made our stay thoroughly enjoyable.
|Harvey and Family|
Our week at Leamington Pavilion was a 5 star dream!! Thank you so much to the staff for all your care and attention, we have never been so spoiled! Every meal was amazing but the beef and lamb were outstanding! Thank you, thank you, I hope we see you all again next year!!
|The Tarabouy & Langley Family|
Our memories of Barbados will always be framed by our time at Leamington Pavilion. It's so refreshing to stay in a house that has character and history - a little piece of Barbados in and of itself. The true magic of staying here is attributable to the staff. The service is absolutely world class and second to none. If only we could convince them to come home with us.The owners are very blessed to have them. Thank you for being wonderful and every kindness you showed us, we truly appreciated you all!
|The Kyser Family|
We found Leamington Pavilion after many hours of research on the internet. When we settled on Leamington, we were a little anxious because sometimes pictures make things look better than they are. Not in this case! We were blown away with every detail of this lovely home.
The best part of the week was the staff! Every single one, so highly trained in the service industry. There wasn't anything that they couldn't do. They all went above and beyond to make our stay perfect.
We bought my parents along to celebrate my dad's birthday. He fell in love with Barbados and this was his most memorable birthday yet. We will forever be grateful to all of you who went above and beyond to make this our best vacation yet.
|The Galley Party|
I was once tole that it is the people that make a place wonderful not visa versa and that is 150% true. Leamington Pavilion is no doubt a paradise within itself that when you add its A1 staff and their wonderful personalities, it is quite the jewel!
|Jane and Family|
It is difficult to express how we felt about this little piece of paradise. To say we have all had an incredible time would be an understatement. We knew when we stepped out of the cab and saw your smiling faces, it would be a week to remember. Thank you for taking such good care of us - every meal was better than the next. We have never felt this relaxed. Thank you for anticipating our every need and doing everything with a smile. We will miss your warm and gentle ways. We look forward to returning before too long. Stay well and know how much you are appreciated.
|Douglas Flynn & Family|
Just can’t say enough about the staff. McPhearson is an amazing cook, and is completely passionate about ensuring his customers are satisfied. We will be back!
|The Ripley Family|
The house is exquisitely furnished, designed and maintained. It excels most of all because of such wonderful, attractive, professional and engaging staff, they are the icing on the Leamington cake. Our favorite restaurant here on island - Leamington Pavilion, who leads the list for quality food and service to match.
|Joan, Anna, Denis, Laura, Roger, Brent, Jo, Ross & Lisa|
Just want to say a big “thank you,” our stay here was comfortable and memorable right down to the smallest detail, we all felt very well looked after and very spoilt. A special mention must be made about the food, not only did it taste delicious, it was always beautifully presented. You have taken great care of us, once again, thank you!
|Wajs Party |
The house was perfect to every detail. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean, the open air feeling of the house was amazing. The staff were all incredible, accommodating and helpful. The ocean was calm and quiet with some decent snorkeling right off the beach. The pool was huge and beautifully maintained. I would highly recommend this villa.
Excellent vacation! It's like coming home! Great staff!
|Sue & Russell|
Once again our choice of holiday was perfect we enjoyed everyday. The staff at Leamington is impressive, to be able to deal with so many personalities and demands the dedication they give is astonishing. Our holiday was a success and our memories plentiful.
Our family hadn’t had a holiday in two years, we were in desperate need of R&R. I don’t think we could have ever imagined how blissfully relaxing a time we’d have at Leamington, a home away from home. From the very first moment to the very last pure unalloyed contentment, absolute heaven. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
|Dee, Dennis and Sacha|
To all who make Leamington such a wonderful place – Thank you! Leamington is a timeless villa but what makes it really special is the staff, each of them really professional but also great company. From the moment we pulled up they made us feel at home, thank you all for the hard work and for making Leamington our home. Once again it was a holiday that would be difficult to beat, certainly on Barbados and in our view, virtually anywhere else.
|The Lynch Family|
Having stayed at Barbados best hotels and dining at some of its most famous restaurants, it’s a testament to Leamington that we stayed in fourteen nights in a row. The staff was remarkable, what a truly memorable experience, our holiday was more than we could ever hope for.
|The Holroyd Family|
Leamington Pavilion is amazing but it is the staff who make this villa so wonderful. Our stay here has been perfect in every sense. We will be back!
|The Whitney Family|
A gorgeous house in a unique location in such beautiful surroundings. We have been cosseted and looked after so well by the team here, we have been truly spoilt.
|The Cheshire Family|
We chose Leamington Pavilion by chance, that chance must have been guided by the hands of God because it was a perfect place. The gift of this place was overwhelming it brought our family closer together and gave us a peace that will be lasting.
|The Turner Family|
Since we were last here, we felt it would be impossible to duplicate the wonderful stay we had here. Well we were wrong! The villa was as elegant and beautiful as before, immaculately maintained and the staff were their welcoming, embracing helpful selves. We plan to come again and can’t wait.
|The Crowder Family|
We came not knowing what to expect and leave with wonderful memories and the desire to take all the staff home. What a wonderful week we have had here in paradise.
The food was AMAZING!!! The staff is fantastic, this was a dream holiday.
|Sue, Bob, Mark and Steve|
We expected good service but the attention we received from the staff exceeded our expectations, nothing was too much trouble. We had a wonderful week at Leamington.
What a special treat to enjoy time at a divine residence the villa is exquisite in its design, décor and upkeep. Thank you we enjoyed the luxurious set up at Leamington.
|Ambassador & Mrs Mark Palmer|
Chef is wonderful, cooperative and skilled. Asst Manager and rest of staff were helpful and pleasant.
House itself is divine!
