We absolutely loved our 10 days at Nelson Gay! The villa is just beautiful with the most idyllic setting overlooking the beach just south of Speightstown. The bedrooms have the most comfortable beds - great sumptuous mattress toppers and top quality bed linen - and whilst the bathrooms may not be the most modern, they are very effective. Add then the friendly and attentive staff to this perfect set-up and you really do have a fabulous holiday. Tyrone and Winston cooked wonderful meals for us, sourcing the best quality ingredients and pitching the flavouring to perfection. They had lots of ideas which we readily embraced - Bajan themed night, Mexican, lavish bbqs etc and despite us eating out at Tides, Lone Star and the Fishpot, our best meals on the holiday were those at Nelson Gay. They organised a steel band for our last night at the villa, and the owner kindly paid for half the band fee and very thoughtful and impressive birthday cakes for 2 of the children who had their birthdays whilst we were there. Billy and Shauntell were always so welcoming and attentive , and when Kerry took over as security in the evening, he was also the right balance of discrete and yet caring to step in if needed - he went above and beyond keeping an eye on the smaller children when we went out for the evening , and fixing AC issues very quickly for us. The owner phoned me personally to check everything was good. And the team at Blue Sky Luxury were equally happy, friendly, welcoming and attentive. And even when we left Nelson Gay to spend our final week in another large villa down the coast (sadly Nelson Gay was already booked for that week) , the team assisted us on a couple of wine and grocery matters and hand delivered an item we had left behind to our new villa. The superb service at Nelson Gay was accentuated even more when we discovered the complete opposite at the new villa (St Helena) where there was a complete lack of friendliness and attentive service. We missed Nelson Gay and the fabulous team there so much during our final week on the island!
The home is so wonderful because the staff makes it that way. Nelson Gay has character and is well appointed. It has wonderful outdoor space and everything is available for your pleasure and relaxation. Thank you so much for sharing Nelson Gay with us and allowing us to enjoy a fantastic, relaxing week.
The house and staff were perfect. The location is spectacular. The concierge took care of our every need. We have happy memories to last a lifetime. Thank you everyone associated with Nelson Gay. We will be back!!
Charming and relaxing. Right on the beach. Staff is wonderful. Short walks too restaurants and nite life. Explored just about the whole island. If there is someplace nicer we did not find it. We had 12 in our group and had more than enough room for all of us.
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.
Absolutely a wonderful place to stay! The staff is awesome and you are feet away from the ocean. Love the Nelson Gay!
Such a lush, beautiful charming beachfront villa with plenty of room for the 9 of us. The staff is so friendly and accommodating and honestly the food served was the best we've had among the different villas that we have rented on Barbados. Loved that the pool was the central focal point of the grounds. Also loved learning the history of the house which you can find in their welcome book. We usually stay in St James parish and I have to say this location on the beach is a lot quieter. Not as many loud catamarans and jet skis in front of the villa all the time. Will probably rent again in the future.
