Maddox, a truly romantic and dreamy home with Greek columns, large terraces and baroque furnishings. Simply a stunning home on a secluded beach
Maddox is an exquisite property designed by world-famous architect Oliver Messel. Located on a desirable beach, Maddox is dreamy and peaceful, a truly special piece of Barbados’s architectural history. It is no wonder that Messel made Maddox his personal home in Barbados after meticulously restoring it in the 1950s. Designed with Greek columns, large balconies, and local coral stone, Messel’s exquisite eye for detail is evident around every corner. The property has been lovingly maintained, with lush grounds and thoughtful, sophisticated interiors.
The ground floor features captivating and airy rooms perfectly suited for entertaining and enjoying quality time with loved ones. The gazebo overlooks the sea and offers mesmerising views. It is the quintessential spot to watch a glorious Caribbean sunset. The classic poolside bar room is the ideal place for an evening cocktail before guests make their way into the stunningly romantic dining terrace which has high ceilings, antique wrought iron light fixtures, and a bespoke twelve-seater coral dining table. After dinner, the evening can wind down in the lounge area on the open terrace under the spectacular Caribbean sky.
The elegant, spacious living room featuring a large sectional sofa is a comfortable space for watching TV, playing games, or reading. The desk area is the perfect place for those needing to work remotely.
At Maddox water fun for all ages can be had in the expansive pool or the turquoise sea, with direct access to the secluded beach for a morning or afternoon dip.
Seven en suite bedrooms are spread out across three separate buildings: the Main House, Guest Cottage 1, and Guest Cottage 2, offering ample space for a large group of friends or family to both relax and retreat.

Property owners tend to accept bookings over the Christmas and New Year period on stricter terms than at other times of year. In general, bookings are subject to a 14 night minimum stay but owners may require a 3 week booking in some cases and will often need to approve dates to fit with their own travel plans or those of other guests. A higher deposit of 50% of the total rental price is payable for such bookings and the balance becomes due earlier at 90 days before arrival.
All prices quoted above have been calculated based on information provided by the owners but are subject to confirmation during December and January as occasionally owners may insist on the higher Christmas rate being applied either side of the main Christmas period. We suggest you contact us for a firm price quotation at this time of year, before making your booking.
