Looking for luxurious Barbados villas on the beach?  If you are then look no further.  With its elegant façade, stylish décor, and breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea, Crystal Springs is a testament to the island’s historic grandeur.

Set on 1.7 acres on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the estate features stunning tropical foliage, vibrant flora, and mature trees. A natural gully runs through the property, and a secluded white sandy cove sits just below the main house. The 12,000 sq ft residence comprises six exquisite buildings connected by coral stone terraces and pathways; each offers delightful space for relaxing and entertaining. With 10 bedrooms and en suite bathrooms, Crystal Springs is one of those Barbados villas on the beach which is ideal for large groups, families, and corporate gatherings.

Built-in the 1940s, Crystal Springs was meticulously redesigned in the 1960s by famed Oliver Messel.  His theatrical style, characterised by grand archways, pillars, and elegant finishes, emphasised outdoor living space, taking full advantage of the beautiful tropical settings that surrounded the homes. Crystal Springs is no exception.  It is a true Messel masterpiece.  It has an indelible spirit and charm that sets it apart as one of the most captivating residences on the island.

After purchasing the home in 2013, the present owners have lovingly restored Crystal Springs to its original splendour.  They have revitalised her spirit as Messel first envisioned it. This includes paying homage to the villa’s architectural significance as one of his most stunning creations. The team involved in the restoration was primarily Barbadian; local experts, artisans, and craftsmen ensured the home’s historic integrity was maintained, and the few new additions blend effortlessly with the original structures. Most of the original furnishings have been refurbished, now artfully combined with specially commissioned local artwork to create a sophisticated take on the Caribbean style.

There are only a few 10 bedroom Barbados villas on the beach, but Crystal Springs is one of them.  The villa can sleep up to 20 people comfortably. There are two sets of communicating suites and the Tea House features both a king and two twin Murphy beds, ideal for young families. All suites are luxuriously appointed with elegant furnishings and local artwork. The rooms are light and airy, with enchanting views of the sea, gully, and gardens. Built-in cupboards provide ample closet space. They also have Jambox speakers by Jawbone and most feature flat-screen televisions. Every bedroom has both ceiling fans and air-conditioning. They feature pampering touches such as seersucker robes and Acqua Di Parma toiletries. Four bathrooms feature open-air showers and most have incredible views of the gully or the Caribbean Sea.

The Annex, located adjacent to the main house, suspends over the secluded white sandy cove and gully. Its oceanfront terrace features an intimate bar area. A private stairway leads down to the beach.  At high tide, the water laps the bottom steps, allowing you to literally step right into the Caribbean Sea. The cove is a delightful spot to sunbathe and enjoy water sports, including stand-up paddle boarding, Sunfish sailing, and snorkelling. Crystal Springs is one of the few private homes with a cordoned-off swimming area, making it safe to enjoy. The home also has an 18’ speedboat equipped for water skiing and other aquatic excursions; the boat master can also arrange diving lessons and equipment rentals.

The swimming pool at the villa is heated and is lined with inviting chaise loungers. The mosaic tiles reflect the sparkling sunlight, and the infinity edge offers a window to the sea. Catamarans can be gracefully sailing by. You can relax in the shade with a favourite cocktail in hand, or accept the water’s invitation to take a dip beneath the midday sun.

For those wanting a quiet night in, you can enjoy films on the big screen in the home theatre which is decorated with an array of memorable film posters. It provides the ideal setting for watching movies with state-of-the-art surround sound and reclining chairs. The villa also has an ultramodern fitness centre outfitted with Technogym equipment, for those who wish to keep up their workout routines.

The staff at Crystal Springs has been with the estate for years; the butlers, cook (with an assistant), boatmaster, housekeepers and laundresses will ensure your stay surpasses every expectation, providing attentive, yet unobtrusive service. You have guards on hand to ensure security from dusk to dawn plus the property manager is on call to address any questions, concerns, or needs.

Crystal Springs sits comfortably within the heart of the island’s prestigious west coast.  It is within easy reach of Speightstown, a historic town to the north filled with cafes, shops, and restaurants. You are also able to easily reach Holetown, which is the island’s hub for world-class shopping, dining, and nightlife. If you like your sport, world-renowned golf, polo, and marina facilities are also on offer nearby. Crystal Springs’ property manager can assist with concierge services from catamaran trips to restaurant reservations.  They will ensure your stay is an unforgettable experience from start to finish.

If you are looking for luxury Barbados villas on the beach, then Crystal Springs is one of the best.
