What Past Guests Are Saying
Potomac Falls, VA
Wonderful Rental Home!
This is a beautiful place! Spring Bay Villa had everything we needed and then some...Melba stocked the refrigerator with "starter" groceries (eggs, milk, butter, fruit, juices, water...) which was a very pleasant surprise and much appreciated. We enjoyed our stay very much, the villa has a wealth of information to get you going on enjoying the island. Melba checked in with us during the week, and I feel confident in saying that she would have been very responsive had we needed anything (we really didn't!). There were plenty of towels, the kitchen is well-appointed and the views from the villa amazing. Our only (and I do mean only) negative comment would be that the beach access to Spring Bay Beach was very uninviting and we never did climb down the cliff. Instead, we thoroughly enjoyed Bottom Bay and Crane Beach. We often spent the day out and returned to the villa for dinner, swimming and watching a movie from Melba's extensive collection.
We had a delightful visit and recommend this house for anyone who wants to be away from the congestion of the tourist areas. It's truly a peaceful, beautiful spot! Thanks Melba!

Perfection all the way ;-)
There aren't enough words to describe my amazing experience at Spring Bay Villa.As a Flight attendant who provides customer service and travelled the world staying in 5 star accomodation for more than 14 years,this villa and it's hosts exceeded my expectations and delivered outstanding customer service.
I am extremely demanding when it comes to perfection and where I stay.I will definately be returning.
I arrived in May for 10 nights with my husband for our wedding.We were greeted at the airport by lovely Martin.Upon arrival was the delightful and most welcoming Melba,Martin's wife.She baked a cake and provided basic food package,also some extra food as it was a public holiday the day after our arrival and shops would be closed.We didn't have a car,which I recommend,as we didn't intend on leaving the stunning villa.
Melba and Martin are warm people who go above and beyond to ensure we were happy and called to see if we needed anything, without imposing on our privacy.
The villa is breathtaking!Very modern,spacious and decorated with so much attention to detail and there is a cleaner,pool cleaner and gardener once a week which maintain it to the highest standards of cleanliness.
The villa is in a lovely,quiet development yet I felt very safe there.
If you are looking for a wedding planner then Melba has many years experience and this is evident in the way she ensures everything is perfect for your special day.With very few emails arranging the wedding as I had faith in Melba due to excellent reviews,I honestly don't know what I would have done without her! On the day, my cake and bouquet were exactly what I asked for,the ceremony went smoothly and Melba remembered all the essential things I needed to take(champagne for toast,unity candles etc)which I would have forgotten!Also the photographer she arranged produced fantastic quality pics.
Overall,whether for holiday,wedding or honeymoon I can assure you Spring Bay will not disappoint!Thank you Melba+Martin :-)
Searching for total privacy during your vacation? You found it.
We stayed at Spring Bay Villa for 7 nights arriving on 3rd December 2010.
The owners are extremely friendly and very helpful anytime you need assistance. Martin arranged for us a full day trip around the island as we did not rent a car - his overall knowledge of the history and geography was great to get understanding of the island and to see the main highlights of the island and some hidden gems which you will not find in tour guides. Melba is a great cook and I still remember the great taste of her home made Rum punch.
- Villa: Rooms are spacious, clean and well modern equipped - big flat TV + DVD in the lovely living room, Wi-Fi, tropic ventilators in every room, kitchen with complete accessory kit (also the extremely demanding cooks will be satisfied), garden grill, each bedroom has own aC and bathroom. Upstairs are two balconies - one with main view at the atlantic, the second with the pool view. From here you can enjoy the sun rising directly from the atlantic or the sunsets above the island. We felt the sense for detail and care for the visitor's need in every place here - starting with flowers in the vase to welcome us, plenty of towels for our usage and fresh fruit in the kitchen.
- Pool and garden: The pool was lovely, perfect for an afternoon plunge. The garden is wonderful - listening to the breeze in the flowers while enjoying the sun is very relaxing. Tax for this is few caterpillars that will cross your path. The pool boy came twice during our stay which was sufficient. You will definitely enjoy the space, view at the nearby lighthouse and total privacy (the neighbor houses are not very close; the whole area is very calm). The lighthouse is just a 3mins walk - a magical place, unfortunately it is not open any more. We spent evening dinners on the garden patio in the candlelight and with the songs of tea frogs and ocean waves in the background - heaven.
This is paradise!
If you're in need of peace, quiet, relaxation, beautiful sunrises/sunsets, the constant sounds of the ocean crashing on the beach nearby, then this is it. I'm selfishly writing a review as I'm afraid too many people may flock to this stunning which has top of the line everything. The pool was great for a daily dip to cool off from the hot sun... and very well maintained. The garden, beautifully groomed w/various lush plants, the housekeeper (also completely unobtrusive) came by to clean - all of the staff were pleasant and gave a friendly 'Hello, Good Day'. As soon as I found this place (after madly searching the internet for a villa to host my wedding) and contacted Melba with a few (million) questions, I knew I found the spot. Melba is now my family (if she didn't now before, she knows now :) and that is exactly how she made us feel from the start. The total number of guests, including my husband and I was 30. I didn't realize Melba's ability to organize a wedding (all via email) would completely surpass our expectations. We started communicating about 6mths before the wedding date and never spoke until the day I arrived at the villa, all of our communication was done by email and it turned out amazing! Everyone couldn't stop complimenting my husband and I on the beauty of the villa, the wonderful setting for a wedding, the superb decor, deliciously catered food (thanks to Country House Caterers) and the pool and garden area (which also lit up at night) that were tastefully laced with candled lanterns. It turned out to be a very classy event, with a warm, intimate setting, a day everyone will forever remember. Thanks to Melba, it all seemed so easy. If all this sounds too good to be true, take at least a week out of your busy agenda and see for yourself - You will fall in love with this place (and Melba!)
Relaxing holiday at Spring Bay Villa
Villa was superb. We really appreciated the excellent facilities at the villa. We love to cook, and it was great to find sharp knives, quality pans and an excellent cooker, freezer etc that made using the kitchen a real joy. Everything about the villa was first class, from the bedrooms and bathrooms to the sitting room and lovely eating areas. The situation was perfect for us. We loved the east side, particularly the fact that it was so quiet and non-touristy. The beaches were magnificent, and though swimming was limited because of the currents, we really enjoyed swimming at Bottom Bay, Sharks Hole and Spring Bay. We all enjoyed the magnificent pool. The layout and situation of the villa leant itself to a very relaxing holiday.
The villa was comfortable, clean, spacious and attractive. We loved seeing and hearing the ocean in the morning. It had everything one could possibly think of - even pool toys! Melba was very helpful from the beginning, and it was definitely reassuring to know that she'd meet us at the airport. The location is generally quiet (sometimes the workers at the house next door played the radio in the morning), but it is a little bit of a distance from most attractions. The beach in walking distance really is not in practicality; even my 15-yr-old son was hesitant to walk all the way down the cliff as was my husband. Distance is mainly a problem due to the condition of the roads and the speed of the buses. At the same time, we loved that we got to meet a number of Bajans and were not surrounded by tourists, and were able to drive to both the north and south coasts without too much problem. Melba was very helpful in suggesting places to visit and eat, and we were so thankful she had a map on which she marked her recommendations, which were spot on (Crane and Enterprises beaches, the plantation, local barbecue). If we return to Barbados, we would definitely consider the villa at Ragged Point."

A Truly Idyllic Villa
I recently spent eight wonderful days at Spring Bay Villa with my wife and her family. Melba was extremely helpful throughout the booking process, arranged car rental for us, and met our party at the airport. She made the entire rental process a pleasure.
The villa has everything a family needs. Located in the southeast corner of the island, the villa is secluded and offers plenty of privacy and quiet. We started each day with swims in the pool before heading out to one of the many nearby beaches, which we had practically to ourselves. A rental car is a must for exploring Barbados, and the grocery store is a quick fifteen minute drive away. The kitchen had all the amenities one could need which made for many enjoyable nights of self-catering. Melba even stocked the fridge with necessities prior to our arrival. There is a fish market a short drive away: the grill by the pool saw heavy use.
The three bedrooms were all very comfortable with powerful aCs and en suite bathrooms. Wireless internet and a large flatscreen TV provided entertainment between dips in the pool and excursions around the island. Opening the front and back doors of the villa provided a welcome breeze in the evenings.
We had an amazing time at Spring Bay Villa and cannot wait to return! Highly recommended!!!
SPRING BAY VILLA - RAGGED POINT BARBADOS
Myself and my parents stayed at Spring Bay Villa in October 2009 in the run-up to my Daughter and Niece’s weddings on the island.
When we got to the Villa we were given a guided tour by Melba (a first class Hostess) and then tuition on how to use the equipment and facilities. Nothing has been forgotten in the build and design of Spring Bay Villa! The passion that went into it clearly shows and the same can be said for the choice of equipment and utilities available. There wasn’t a moment during our stay that we needed anything ‘urgently’ and had to go out for it at short notice – everything we needed was there.
The surrounding area is very quiet and peaceful - excellent for me! We took a short walk up to The Lighthouse and took in the breathtaking views….a side to Barbados that I had not seen before on my previous 5 visits.
The pool and garden area outside of the Villa are ideal for enjoying the Bajan sunshine and the flowers and shrubs Melba has so lovingly planted.
If you are a first-timer to Barbados I would highly recommend Spring Bay Villa.
WELL DONE Melba on a truly magnificent place to stay in Barbados and THANK YOU for your hospitality….. I for one hope to go back one day.

A Perfect Vacation
Our family group of 6 adults (23-55+) found Spring Bay Villa to be the perfect vacation rental. We wanted a homelike atmosphere that was away from the crowds and noise of a hotel yet easily accessible to beaches and tourist attractions. We appreciated the privacy of a home with 3 bedrooms and baths. While at the villa we were able to prepare breakfast daily in the kitchen and prepare some dinners in the wonderfully appointed kitchen or on the grill. Then we had fun choosing one of six tables at which to eat our meals! The patio and pool area and terraces were lovely and we all enjoyed dips in the pool as well as watching the sun rise and gazing at the stars. It was also great to have a complete laundry room because then we were able to travel lightly. All of us appreciated the cable TV and WiFi. (The website pictures of Spring Bay Villa are beautiful- but you have to experience it - gorgeous home,lovely setting, soft breezes and beautiful blue sky!) Some of the highlights of our trip included swimming at various beaches- Crane, Enterprise, Bath and others. We also enjoyed driving into the higher elevations where we had our pictures taken with a monkey and got lost in the dark. Many helpful Bajans gave us directions to get back "home." We all visited Harrison Caves, the Cockspur Rum Factory and the Animal Flower Caves. Some of us went shopping, took a house tour, sailed on a catamaran and went scuba diving. We also had takeout fish BBQ from Kenneth's (outstanding), ate at Oistins, Harlequins and an Irish pub in St.Lawrence Gap. There was so much to see and do we'll have to come back! Our heartfelt thanks to Melba Wood for helping us get to and from the airport, helping us with the car rental arrangements, providing us with a welcome basket of fruit, some food and drinks and orienting us to the villa, attractions and her home, Barbados. We loved our stay there and hope to return!
A Beautiful villa and gracious host
The villa is stunning and Melba is a most gracious host.
The villa provided the peace and privacy I wanted for a restful week away, reading my books by the lovely pool; as well as providing scope for the more active members of our group who visited many of the nearby beaches and came back saying each one was better than the last...
We did have a car (marvellously organised by Melba) and ate out on many occassions as well as touring the island; but it was lovely to have the pool, garden and BBQ on nights that we wanted to spend at the villa and cook for ourselves.
I agree with previous guests and would highly recommend Spring Bay Villa to anyone seeking a beautiful and peaceful villa 'away from the crowds' and would certainly hope to return.
Four members of my family recently traveled to Barbados. We were met by our wonderful host Melba at the airport which made getting to the villa very easy. We enjoyed every bit of our vacation and highly reccommend the villa. The villa is well equipped and well cared for. We enjoyed traveling around the island and spending days at many of the beautiful beaches. We have been to many of the islands in the caribbean and Barbados has the most beautiful beaches. The weather is perfect, the people are friendly and the resturants great!!
We visited the villa with two small children 4 and 7. The villa was lovely. It
was equipped with all conveniences and necessities and very clean. The
pool area was our favorite part of the home. There was a constant warm
breeze so it was never really hot. It was wonderful to go out for the day to
the beach and come back to dip in the pool. Crane Beach which is very
close by was one of my favorites, the backdrop is breathtaking. We had
dinner at The Craze L'Azure which was great, esp. the view. You would
definitely need a rental car to get around as the grocery store is about 15-
20 minutes away. We also went to Oistins as all the books suggested and
had a wonderful time. We went early enough 6pm to catch the sunset and
enjoyed the vendors selling items along the beach. During the week we
picked up fresh fish at the fish market and cooked on the grill at the villa.
We also did the 3 hour Catamaran cruise which was excellent! The kids
enjoyed and it was just enough time. Last but not least, Melba was an
excellent host. She greeted us at the airport and made the process
seamless. We had a few questions during the week and she was always
available and helpful. Highly recommend this villa!!

Best holiday ever in my life
The service we received from Melba Wood was excellent well we would truly say perfect.
She is friendly, warm, and down to earth nothing is too much for her to do for you to ensure your stay is perfect.
The villa is out of this world everything you could truly wish for was there. The website is perfect but to be there was heavenly. As we were showed round it was so hard for us to contain our delight at this heavenly villa. Every room was perfect so much love, detail and thought had gone it, and when we thought again this is perfect we saw the pool. We all squealed in delight children and adults.
The location was perfect for us everything within walking, a bus journey or a local taxi ride away, which is all truly part of the holiday.
The local bar and food at Lithcott (sorry if we have spelt your name wrong) is excellent value for money and boy was the food good. The locals are friendly and welcoming. We didn't feel like strangers for long as we were eating and drinking there most nights joining in the local chat.
The panoramic view was excellent from all levels of the villa. The sunset was amazing we just didn’t want our holiday to end.
There is nothing we could say that we didn’t like apart from why did we only booked for one week when we should have booked for two or more.
Perfektes Haus/Perfekter Urlaub
Wer einen ruhigen relaxten Urlaub auf Barbados verbringen will, ist in diesem Haus genau richtig. Es ist liebevoll und vollständig ausgestattet, mit allen Dingen die man für einen „Luxusurlaub“ benötigt. Das Highlight ist die moderne Küche mit allen erdenklichen neuwertigen Küchengeräten. Dazu kommt ein Gasaußengrill für gemütliche Grillabende am beleuchteten Pool. Auch die Schlaf- und Badezimmer sind gut ausgestattet. Wir waren 14 Tage in dem Haus und haben uns rund um wohl gefühlt. Da das Haus fast am Ende einer Sackgasse liegt und es nur wenig Nachbarn gibt, ist es sehr ruhig. Die einzigen Geräusche die man hört sind die Wellen des Meers, welches an die ca. 100 Meter entfernte Steilküste schlägt und das nächtliche Summen der Grillen. Der Pool und das Haus werden pro Woche einmal gereinigt. Bettwäsche und Handtücher (incl. Pooltücher) sind reichlich vorhanden. Ganz besonders hervorheben möchten wir die professionelle und herzliche Betreuung der Besitzerin Melba. Nicht nur, dass sie perfekt Deutsch spricht, ist sie auch jederzeit telefonisch erreichbar und hilft bei allem was man als Tourist auf Barbados so wissen möchte. Die Abholung vom Flughafen und eine Grundausstattung mit Lebensmitteln sind selbstverständlich im Service inbegriffen. Der nächste große Supermarkt ist ca. 8 km entfernt. Ein Auto ist daher sinnvoll. Autofahren auf Barbados ist übrigens trotz des Linksverkehrs sehr unkompliziert. Überhaupt sind die Menschen auf Barbados sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wer abseits des touristischen Trubels Urlaub machen möchte ist hier genau richtig.

spring bay villa
I rented this Villa for a week in early January 2009. My companion and I
enjoyed our stay very much. The house is brand new. The owner was
extremely hospitable. She did everything possible to look after our needs.
The property is accurately portrayed on the homeaway website. Its many
features make it an agreeable spot for a restful and pleasant vacation. The
kitchen door opens onto the pool area making the outdoor eating area a
lovely extension of the kitchen. The kitchen itself is modern, spacious and
well-equipped. The refrigerator provides cold filtered water and the freezer
makes plentiful ice. The beds have very comfortable mattresses and soft
new sheets. You have a choice of open windows, a fan, or air conditioning.
The accompanying bathroom has two sinks, a large bathtub and great
shower. We spent a great deal of time at the house reading, working, and
relaxing. The terrace by the pool is convenient in that you can sit in the
shade, partly in the sun, or completely in the sun. As you can see in one of
the photos, the lighthouse is a few minutes away. The view is truly
spectacular: dramatic cliffs and tremendous surf. You need a car for both
shopping and getting to the beach. The shopping centre in Six Roads has a
decent grocery store called Emerald City. (The bajan hot sauce – Delish - is
particularly good.) The beaches nearby are absolutely beautiful. The day we
went to Bottom Bay there were only four or five other people. One person
was swimming, but since it was a windy day and the surf was very strong,
we didn’t venture far into the waves. The next day we went to the beach in
front of the Crane Hotel. There were many people on chaise lounges
presumably from the hotel. The swimming was pleasant: good waves for
body surfing. We also drove up to Bathsheba and visited the fish market in
Oistins. Both excursions were well worth the effort. In summary, we had an
excellent time at Spring Bay Villa, and in Barbados in general.

A Luxurious Retreat
We spent a delightful 7 days at Spring Bay Villa. We were met at the airport by Melba, the charming owner and manager. She transported us to the Villa and, once there, ensured that we were well acquainted with the Villa and its many outstanding features. The photos suggest a lovely place indeed, but the Villa is more than that – it is outstanding in all regards. It is beautifully designed, finished and appointed. The master bedroom and ensuite were outstanding. We cooked a fair bit during our stay and loved being in the well appointed kitchen. Of course, the pool side terrace was one of our favorite places, whether it be watching the sun rise over the Atlantic in the morning or enjoying a meal. Although there were beaches within a very short drive (Bottom Bay, Crane), it was wonderful to have access to a pool when we weren’t beaching it.
The location of the Villa in Ragged Point was a real plus for us. It provided us with a very quiet location, well removed from the busier, noisier, and more densely populated resort areas on the island. One could lie in bed at night and hear only the sound of the waves crashing on the nearby coast. From the Villa it is just a short walk up the street to the old lighthouse and the Atlantic coast. On beach days, we drove to some of the nearby beaches – Bottom Bay Beach and (my favorite) Crane Beach which were within a 10 – 15 min drive of Spring Bay Villa. Both of these beaches can have significant surf on windy days. For quieter water, we spent a day at Enterprise (Miami) beach – a 20 – 30 min drive from Spring Bay Villa. Groceries and supplies are available at Six Corners – a 15 – 20 min drive. You will gather from the above that a car is (pretty much) essential if you elect to stay at Spring Bay Villa.
All in all, this was a VERY positive experience for us. The Villa itself was outstanding in its appearance, function and location. It was a pleasure to meet and deal with the very attentive owner. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks Melba for renting us your wonderful villa! The sunsets were beautiful, the large pool was heaven, and your gorgeous villa had everything we could possibly need. We appreciate your excellent service from our arrival and throughout our stay. This was our first trip to Barbados, and everyone we met was friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the snorkeling, the Four Square Rum Distillery, and a fantastic excursion trip on the Cool Runnings catamaran. We bought fresh fish a couple of times at Oistens and grilled outside by the pool. Such a delight! Don't hesitate to book this villa. Looking forward to a return trip asap!
