Old World Tropical Getaway

Brushed with the high gloss of Oliver Messel’s theatrical panache, this beachfront estate’s eclectic warmth, will draw anyone to experience Barbados.

Crystal Springs - positioned on 1.7 acres of prime Platinum Coast - was first built in 1940s, then redesigned by celebrated 1960s international designer, Oliver Messel. This sprawling 8-bed, 8-bath villa lends itself to privacy.  From the private pool to the clifftop terrace, you are lead down a staircase to a secluded stretch of pristine West Coast beach.

For decades, the efficient staff of this luxury residence has warmly embraced groups and large families. Not only catering to their every need, but welcoming them to in song and fittingly, skit - led by the genial Marcia Walkes, a longstanding housekeeper, who is featured in the 2014 edition of the popular Ins and Outs publication.
