Villa Nelson Gay Barbados. A coral stone mansion that opens out to an enormous, private garden surrounded by stately palms, tall and mature trees and a direct view of the sea is only part of the delights awaiting those who visit the Villa Nelson Gay. Set directly on Godings Bay in Barbados, this private estate offers a truly stunning setting for a large family holiday or gathering and even a perfect spot for a destination event.
With acres of expansive gardens, the property also features a private and sprawling section of beachfront. Furnished for comfort, you will find lounges and amenities at every turn. Whether you are on the lawn, gathered near the pool or at the waterfront, you will feel at home. The full household staff also ensures this and includes a chef, butler and housekeeping and grounds teams.
Carefully designed to maximize the setting, the six-bedroom gem is Palladian in design and built of native coral stone. It features a bevy of indoor and outdoor living spaces that include an al fresco dining gazebo tucked into the garden and an impressively sized terrace with outdoor lounge and more formal terrace dining. The interiors are as airy and lighthearted as the outdoor spaces and include lounges and living rooms, dining suites and a fantastic, gourmet kitchen. There is even a media room to serve as a home theater.
Divided into several wings and including small cottages, the property provides optimal privacy in each of the luxurious bedroom suites. All have access to private porches and terraces, and there are two master suites. The bedrooms feature mostly king or queen beds, large and opulent private baths and each is named for its décor or setting.
Whether with family, friends or a mix of both, the Villa Nelson Gay provides the ideal setting for a luxuriously unforgettable holiday.

Absolutely a wonderful place to stay! The staff is awesome and you are feet away from the ocean. Love the Nelson Gay!
Wonderful Villa, big rooms, very nice heated pool, just by the beach. Beach not very busy (very much appreciated). The staff of the Villa was amazing and genuinely nice. The chef were real good and the staff was fun and very professional. Trustworthy and punctual.
Isle Blue assisted me every time I asked for up to my expectations, and you were very helpfulThank you so much. Wonderful working with your company.
It was a wonderful experience. What you see on the photos is what you get.
The house is big, high ceilings, has great size of rooms, space and nice atmosphere.
The pool is heated, the garden is beautiful, with a variaty of trees, bushes, flowers beautiful.
Access right at the beach with a sunset corner to have your drink while admiring the sun set
The staff is welcoming, warm, professional. They were there when needed and knew how to be discret.
You feel at home for your stay.
We first came to Nelson Gay in 2012 and have returned every year since. The owner lavishes the place with care and each year there's something more to admire. The staff completely make the place, and make sure we get a true holiday with not a care in the world. Nelson Gay is something from a more elegant age, and we absolutely love it. Next year is booked !
There were 16 of us plus an infant. Our visit to Nelson Gay was exquisite! The staff were all phenomenal and attended to our every need. The food was excellent, the accommodations were excellent, and the weather was perfect. We loved swimming in both the pool and ocean. Snorkeling was terrific and the local monkeys provided entertainment. We all would recommend Nelson Gay for anyone looking for a get-away vacation. Thanks again for providing such lasting memories from all of us. BEST VACATION EVER!!!
We have been to Barbados several times, and Nelson Gay House is the most wonderful place to stay. We took our adult children and their significant others, we didn't need all the bedrooms, but could see how many more people could be accommodated. Everything desired was available, from the use of tennis courts, spa, and water sports next door through Cobblers Cove, to the absolute privacy of the property for relaxing, to the proximity of Speightstown, and the accessibility of the water right out the gate. Some homes have wonderful views but no access! This home has both. The breakers afforded a place to snorkel, and for two days there were high enough waves to boogie board without fear of a rocky bottom. The staff was supremely professional. The chef did the shopping and prepared three meals a day, not the usual two we've been offered in the past. The laundry was done daily with our clothes brought back early each afternoon. The butler had coffee ready every afternoon at 4:00. The monkeys came and went, and we fed them only on the last morning, I recommend feeding them the first day! They are adorable and keep their distance. The landscaping is incredible as well. Banana and mango trees, breadfruit, even a sandbox tree. The bedrooms are comfortable and inviting. The formal dining room is exquisite, we only used it on Valentine's Day for two, by candlelight, after sending the kids out to Cin Cin! The house has the feel of a loved home, not just a rental house. There are games and snorkeling equipment, books and a Sonos system for music. You will never want to leave. We didn't!
Nelson Gay has a timeless charm and draws visitors into its embrace. From the moment you are greeted by the entire staff until the sad time when you have to bid them all farewell, you are guaranteed the most memorable experience. The position of the estate is ideal - on a beautiful (often virtually private) beach but within easy
walking distance of an attractive town in one direction and Cobblers Cove in the other. The bedrooms are light and airy: and we lunched and dined out of doors throughout our stay. The food is delicious - with optional menus offering plenty of suggestions as well as the opportunity to go off-piste.
Returning visitors to Barbados know what to expect in terms of the marvellous welcome and the opportunities to attempt the full range of sports and touring: or opt to do absolutely nothing except soak up the sun and wallow in the matchless sea. With its charming grounds, Nelson Gay provides a delightful base. Our party of nine enjoyed the most wonderful holiday.
