I am Melba Wood and my passion lies in the hospitality industry and all its facets. I love to cook, entertain and to share life's simple, precious moments with family and friends. My entire working life has been meeting and working with people from all over the world. I have worked as a Tour Representative for German, French and British Tour Operators and have met some wonderful people over the years. I later evolved into wedding and event planning, catering and cake baking and decorating. Spring Bay Villa spent its first 5 years almost exclusively on the Homeaway rental market from 2008 to 2013 and ranked high with renter reviews. (Potential renters can request copies of these reviews since they are not on the Listing due to obvious datedness). It is back on the market now and I am happy to welcome you and all future tenants to your home away from home.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Owner chose Industry Hall
This beautiful villa came about as a result of a recurrent dream of the Lighthouse being seen from a lounge chair in a distance. Some time afterward, I saw an ad for land lots being sold near the Lighthouse and right there is where my dream started to take shape. I was born and grew up in the East in St Philip so this part of Barbados is very dear to me. Spring Bay Villa is named after the small, secluded pink sand beach which sits below the cliff off the Ragged Point Lighthouse. (Unfortunately, the very limited access to Spring Bay is very dangerous). Spring Bay Villa is truly a labour of love since I designed it and was intimately involved with its construction and interior design as well. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
What makes this Villa unique
You will enjoy the peacefulness of the Ragged Point area, the beautiful ocean views and you will benefit from the fresh, therapeutic breezes off the Atlantic ocean. I hope that this, combined with the comfort of Spring Bay Villa and the charm of Barbados and its people, will make for a truly wonderful stay on our island home.

This was a gorgeous stay not to be missed, Melba was an excellent host, the property was just stunning and would love ❤️ to return
Beautiful property in the quiet part of the island
We had a wonderful trip to Barbados and enjoyed staying in this lovely home! It’s in the quiet part of the island (not close to restaurants or supermarkets), but we had a rental car, so we were able to easily get around to explore sites and chase waves for surfing. The house was fully stocked and had everything we needed for a comfortable, relaxing vacation. Thank you Melba!
Paradise in St. Philip!
Just returned from a wonderful vacation with my husband in Barbados. We rented the Spring Bay Villa for a week and we're so glad we did! Melba was so sweet to help me plan a surprise for my husband's 50th Birthday, by baking him a delicious chocolate cake and boy was he surprised! We lounged around Melba's beautiful home taking in the local beauty and beautiful people! You cannot beat the views and tranquility of this location and well appointed home. Thank you Melba for your kindness and responsiveness. It was wonderful to meet you!
Thank you Dianne for your wonderful review. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you and Phil and having you stay at the villa. You are very gracious, warm and friendly guests. You were very communicative and kept the house immaculately clean! I would welcome you both back again in a heartbeat.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay on the island and at Spring Bay Villa.
Clean, fresh, elegant, hideaway in Barbados
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our vacation. The beach views were great and just a short walk away (maybe 200 meters). Neighbors in the area were friendly and welcoming during our morning walks. At night enjoy the cool breeze from the ocean on the upper level while watching the moon. During the hot peak hours cool off in the pool to take a break from the Barbados heat. We rented a car and toured the island for several days never a dull moment. This was our 1st and most enjoyable visit to Barbados. The house was large, well equipped, clean and Melba was always available to make sure our stay was worry-free. We would highly recommend this property to any one seeking a relaxing, enjoyable vacation. Looking forward to our next trip to purchase some art from local artist and see more of BARBADOS!
Amazing villa in a stunning location.
What a fabulous villa, we could have not wished for more.
The villa is beautifully presented and tastefully decorated.
The kitchen in particular is huge and has so much equipment. The pretty sun terraces are so well positioned to watch the sunrise and gaze across the ocean.
The jewel in the crown is the pool area which is lovely in the evening with its fairy lights and the little bridge.
Melba is a welcoming and wonderful host and kept us updated on the storm situation during our stay as well as giving us a beautiful cake upon our departure.
The villas location makes it perfect to tour the island independently and it is also relatively near to Emerald City for purchasing provisions.
The East Point Bar and Grill a few metres away does brilliant Saturday barbecue and Sunday Bajan buffet lunches.
Overall a fantastic place to stay on a very beautiful island.
Thank you Melba.

Thank you Liz and Richard for your very complimentary review. It was a pleasure having you stay at the villa! You were wonderful guests, very communicative, thoughtful, warm and friendly. I would welcome you back anytime!
Better than we could have imagined
Cant speak Highly enough of Melba or her Villa! The Villa is absolutely gorgeous for one! It is well furnished, the private pool is amazing, there is a full kitchen, private sun decks to watch the sunset/sunrise. Could not have asked for a better honeymoon spot. Just the design and location of the villa would be enough by itself... but Melba was exceptional! she provided travel advise, gave a us a full tour of the villa, warned us when a tropical storm was approaching, was available whenever we had a question or needed guidance, and to top it all off had a pitcher of homemade rum punch for us when we arrived! Thank you Melba and Spring Bay villa for an absolutely unforgettable honeymoon!! :)
I must apologize for my late response to Tracker's review. Tracker and Cairen are an amazing, sweet couple and so very charming. I fell in love with Tracker's southern accent and Cairen's warmth. They left the villa in immaculate condition and were a pleasure to host. I would welcome them back to the villa anytime at all. I am so happy they enjoyed their stay.
