Marsh Mellow is a custom designed villa, situated on a ridge overlooking the West Coast of Barbados and the sparkling Caribbean Sea.

Uniquely designed in a half moon crescent shape, with ivy covered Italian style columns and arches, this fabulous holiday villa offers guests the wonder of enjoying panoramic ocean views from every room.   

The central entryway leads into the open air living room, which overlooks the garden, fountain, infinity edge pool and then on to the ocean beyond. The master bedroom is located at the northern tip of the crescent, and it opens on to a small terrace with direct access to the pool deck. The en-suite bathroom features a large walk-in closet, soaking tub and open air shower. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are also situated on the northern curve, each with an en-suite bathroom and open air shower. Bedroom 2 can inter-connect with the master bedroom if guests wish. The southern curve of the crescent is where you will find bedroom 4 (also with en-suite bathroom), an open air dining room and indoor garden, and the large, well equipped kitchen.   

All rooms have direct access to the garden and pool deck, where you can relax with a good book and work on your suntan, or gather at sunset for cocktails as you keep an eagle eye out for the "green flash”. Marsh Mellow is a great vacation rental villa for families or groups of friends travelling together.

Marsh Mellow Reviews from our Visitors
The Beck Family

We loved our stay at Marsh Mellow! From great food to pool games, to amazing trips we have loved our time in Barbados. Tarpon, no end of fish, monkeys in the garden, swimming with turtles, the geckos, hummingbirds and all. Thanks to Melissa, Andrea and Margaret for looking after us. We'll be back!

The Miller Party

We loved our stay. Our two Melissas were wonderful, Debra made our stay feel like home, Thank you for taking care of all our needs and special requests. It was truly a fantastic vacation.

The Powell Party

Absolutely loved it. The staff was amazing. Views were spectacular!!

The Baird Family

Marsh Mellow is so beautiful, there isn't one thing that I can think of improving! Mellisa, Marcia and Lornette were amazing! The food was delicious!

The Charron Family

One of the most glorious and magical weeks of our lives. We loved Marsh Mellow and the fun and lively women who keep it running smoothly. Barbados is paradise and we are so grateful to have spent a week in its sunshine and sand! A little island air sure cured the winter blues and helped melt the ice we felt had settled in our bones! Thank you, Thank you, for sharing this gorgeous villa with us. It was a dream. We hope to be back soon!

The Hanley Family

What an amazing time we have had here at Marsh Mellow, from the first moment to the last - everything was perfect! Amazing food cooked by Kareen, Malissa and Margaret couldn't have been any better - Seven days at bliss! We love the villa, it is so special and our biggest wish is we can come back! Thank you to the owners for renting this beautiful home. We love everything about it.

The Walker Family

Breathtaking views, beautiful design and spacious for large families. The staff made this holiday magnificent! Adamna is a phenomenal cook, and the housekeepers are multi-talented and knowledgeable. Could not complain about anything!

The Patience Family

We had an absolutely amazing stay! The house was perfect for our family and the view is stunning. The pool was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the house. From tours around the island, snorkel trips with turtles and shipwrecks and days spent at the beach bar watching the World Cup, our holiday was all we could ask for and more. The staff made the house feel like home and we will miss them just as much as the house. Thank you for having us and we hope we can return!

The Lynch's

The place is lovely!

The staff is excellent!

The view is beautiful!

The people are so nice here!

The Batey Party

Annual Ladies Group (8 Ladies) week in Barbados and we thought we would try a villa instead of a resort - great decision! The villa is lovely. You definitely require a car. Very unique layout but easy to navigate and lots of quiet areas for everyone to enjoy. The staff was wonderful. Pam the cook was fantastic and catered to everyone's likes/dislikes. Melissa and Marguerite kept everything spotless and Marguerite even did our laundry! The villa is up on a hill midway between Holetown and Speightstown. Beach privileges at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion where we spent two lovely afternoons were an added bonus. The rest of the time we spent around the pool and loved every moment. The loungers were comfortable, we brought our own floaties. We chose to have the staff do lunch and dinner (you can choose 2 consecutive meal preparations/day) and it was an excellent choice. Everything Pam made was delicious. The beds were all comfortable. The outdoor showers were amazing and private. The kitchen was well-stocked. There is a 12-Cup coffee maker that we used every morning. The grocery store is 10-15 minutes drive. Groceries are ridiculously expensive in Barbados so we had Pam cook local dishes for us and she did not disappoint - We even had roti one day for lunch! This is a lovely holiday option for a group of friends, a large family or a group of 4 couples.

The Nash Party

Leann was exceptional, professional and knowledgeable. Both Melissa’s were kind, professional hardworking helpful and trustworthy. And Dianna was an excellent too. The Property Manager took care of all problems.

The McGrath Party

We loooved our stay at Marsh Mellow. The villa was simply spectacular with the best view we ever had. Loved the layout of it as it felt so different from any regular house. The beds were really comfy which was very important to us. The staff, Julia, Melissa and Carmen were awesome, very welcoming and accommodating. Leigh-Ann, our concierge, was so attentive and very quick to make things happen. The weather was great and we loved the island. Lots of great restaurants and things to do. Most of all.... the trip ended up like we had pictured it. The villa was exactly like it was represented on the web. There were no surprises. Our only extra wish would have been to have an outdoor dining area connected with the view, which is breath taking. In conclusion from beginning to end, our trip was easy and great!. The 5 of us even came home with clean laundry...Thanks Carmen!!!

The Bandalli Family

We absolutely loved our time here at Marsh Mellow and really appreciated Leigh-Ann's help during our stay. The holiday was perfect.

We would like to thank Lasonta, Melissa and Deborah for all of their help over the 9 days. They all went well over and above to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay. Losanta in particular was amazing, she is incredibly talented and was great at dealing with a (fairly demanding!) baby, as well as some random requests from the rest of us. We wanted to take them all back home with us.

Many thanks to all of you for making our holiday so special.

The Little Family

Marsh Mellow was fantastic!

Everyone really enjoyed the villa. The view was spectacular! The staff was more than wonderful, I’d like to highlight Kareen and Melissa. Kareen made gorgeous meals all week, and was a total sweetheart. Melissa made us feel at home and was very kind.

The Carr Party

This Barbados trip was my first trip staying in a villa. I had high expectations and was not disappointed. I traveled with 5 friends and a child. We were looking for an experience that would allow us to congregate and enjoy each others company and we accomplished that. The accommodations at Marsh Mellow were comfortable, clean and well maintained. The amenities such as the on-site concierge (Julie), cook (Marcia), housekeeper (Val) and laundress (Melissa) were nice additions as well. Our on-site team was very flexible, professional and had positive attitudes. They made sure that we were well taken care of. We also had a security guard to watch over the villa. The entire group that I was traveling with, had a wonderful experience. The view was gorgeous where we could see the ocean from the villa while swimming in the infinity pool and the location is close to the supermarket and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this villa!
