Know Before You Go...

Vintage charm and private cabins make Nelson Gay House an ideal spot for a wedding or family reunion. The size of the living areas will accommodate a large party for visiting or formal dining while the small separate cottages and bedrooms (with their own en-suite baths) will afford some privacy. During the day, head down to the beach to sunbathe, or take the crew snorkeling on the coral reef. In the late afternoon, hold a barbeque on the back lawn where the adults can visit while the kids swim and play. After dinner, tuck the little ones in and enjoy cocktails on the patio while the sun goes down over the Caribbean.

Beachfront & Perfect for family holidays!

A stay at Nelson Gay unveils six decades of charm and sophistication presented on two acres of mature and immaculately lush gardens. Located on a beautiful half-mile of beach on the outskirts of Speightstown, its surrounding waters and reef are a playground for swimmers and snorkelers.

The purely coralline creation was originally built as the home of a United States Ambassador in the 1950s, and reflects a Palladian grandeur with 14-foot ceilings in the living room. To add to this, the villa's stunning 50-foot pool features testudine d├ęcor, and is positioned like a path from the centre of the house that summons the sea on its farthest end.

This family-friendly villa has a bounty of restful spaces and formal or al fresco dining areas, including a delightful option to dine by candlelight. The dwelling features a predominantly white canvas - a compliment to the tropical landscape - and is accentuated with several unique pieces and antiques. The sleeping quarters are remarkably fresh and airy, with comfortable beds, quality cotton sheets and hypoallergenic pillows.

Further outside is a charming chattel house cottage, as well as an elegant garden gazebo complete with a wet bar. Two covered terraces on the north and south wing bedrooms offer additional privacy and comfort, while on the seaside, a large area in front of the house is roped off with buoys for safe swimming. By special request, the villa is transformed to accommodate 18 guests.

The Villa Manager and their diligent staff are fully dedicated to your needs during your stay, and will craft fond memories for you at Nelson Gay.

Nelson Gay House, villa review

Nelson Gay has it all. A warm inviting space both inside and out. We were able to relax by the large pool, go snorkeling right outside the gate in calm waters, walk into Speightstown or to Mullins Bay, and use the facilities next door at Cobblers Cove. Each bedroom was well appointed, two had their own private patios. The grounds were spectacular, with mature fruit and palm trees, and bamboo where monkeys would sit and sway in the wind! The size and scope of the yard set this villa apart from the others. Nelson Gay has the feel of a loved home, with personal touches throughout. The staff was warm and professional.. The chef even made us lunch to take with us to the airport! The chattel houses are adorable and can be used for large groups, great for families. Speaking of families, the house has snorkeling equipment and boogie boards, and lots of games and books, a media room and a Sonos system for music. We highly recommend Nelson Gay.

We never have any issues with Andrew, a pleasure to work with.
