It was love at first sight.

Quaint, romantic, and peaceful are three words that immediately came to mind as I walked past the patio and entered this enchanting cottage.

A beautiful 4-poster bed sits just past the sitting area.  A full kitchen lies to the right of the sitting area and a spacious bathroom with stand-up shower and tub is on the opposite side. 

A large window opens out with views of the lovely garden and pool area.

An additional bedroom and bathroom lie just beyond and offer a bit more privacy. 

The bathroom, with its high ceilings and limestone walls, give access to the second bedroom.  A small walk-in linen closet sits on the other side.

The beach is just steps away and there’s nothing quite like having your very own seaside service. 

Walkie-talkies are available for easy communication with the in-house butler who will be more than happy to deliver your beverages to the beach. 

Families with children or couples just looking to get away can take advantage of a luxury family vacation at Villa Melissa with rates that are hard to beat without sacrificing quality and comfort.
