Maxwell, Christ Church Parish, Barbados
Idyllic garden villa, 3 beds, very private, 1 min walk to beach.
Very spacious and comfortable home from home. Very well presented and very well appointed for a family holiday or for just a couple to kick back and relax. The gardens are a tropical delight, very spacious and interesting they provide a peaceful and shady place and a contrast from the beach 2 mins away.
Sunrise and sunset in the gardens are special times for bird lovers and the crickets and whistling frogs create an amazing backdrop of sound in the evenings.
Shelsea is a very special and magical place - see reviews for more info.

A wonderful place to stay and enjoy Barbados' beaches and sunshine! Shelsea was the perfect escape for our family of five. The house offers all the conveniences of home, a lightening quick walk to the beach, close proximity to the bank, grocery store and Oistin's fish market. Thank you to Sheila and Lou for ensuring we had a wonderful holiday!

This is the most amazing getaway. Great location tucked away but with easy access to Maxwell beach and various amenities in Oistens. Going to start saving to go back soon. ☀️🌴😎

The location is amazing, only 2 minutes walk from a stunning beach with white sand and turquoise sea. 2 friendly local bars are also a couple of minutes walk with a small friendly mini market next door to one of the bars. Oistins and a large supermarket are a 15 minutes stroll away. The villa itself easily sleeps 6 with...
