Villa Merlin Bay - Gingerbread Barbados. The St. James area of Barbados is wildly popular and home to a neighborhood known as The Garden. This is where the stunning Villa Merlin Bay - Gingerbread is found. A three-story villa, it is part of a very exclusive, waterfront community that provides visitors with some rare options and truly gorgeous grounds.

The villa is a three-bedroom property that provides guests with access to the lovely and private paths to the gorgeous beaches just a few steps from the grounds. Nearby are private, beach side showers for visitors to enjoy prior to heading back to their villas. There is also a stunning community pool framed by stately palms and manicured gardens and framed by a furnished sun deck.

A stay at the villa also means being entirely free of any worries or cares thanks to the services of your housekeeping staff and private chef to prepare most of your meals. That leaves you with plenty of time to savor the beach as well as the wonderful amenities in the villa itself.

Although there is a pool and beach nearby, this villa also features a private pool terrace and oversized plunge pool. The terrace is furnished as an al fresco dining room and a large open-air living room. It opens into a stately great room with high ceilings and casual décor. It is a few steps from the formal dining room and this opens into the full-sized kitchen equipped to satisfy even a gourmet.

The bedrooms are divided between the first and second floors. There are two king suites with private baths on the first floor and the master suite is on the uppermost floor. This features a king bed and large private bath. It also has a sitting area and a rooftop terrace open to the gorgeous sun.

Ideal for a group, the Villa Merlin Bay - Gingerbread should be on your list of "must see" destinations.

Bedroom 1: Master bedroom with a king-size bed, A/C, ceiling fan and en-suite bathroom with Indoor/Outdoor shower, vanity and WC. 2 guests maximum.

Common Questions
Do we share the villa? click to close
No. You will not share the villa with another party. The villa is exclusively yours. If a larger villa offers a lower bedroom rate category, the villa will remain exclusively yours but the unrented bedrooms will be locked off.
For example, a 5 bedroom villa that offers a 3 bedroom rate will be the exclusive use of the guest but two bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms will be locked off. Capacity is capped at 2 guests per bedroom.
Are we protected from fraud? click to open
Yes. Isle Blue stands behind you throughout your entire vacation. Unlike other companies, each property we offer has been hand picked to ensure that our standards are met. All property managers are vetted and payments are required to be held in escrow. Our primary obligation is to ensure your satisfaction and to have an exceptionally memorable vacation.
Can you explain the reservation process? click to open
Once a reservation request is received, Isle Blue will request a contract from the property manager for your dates of interest. Once the dates are confirmed and contract is received from the property manager, a payment will be required to confirm your reservation.

Early check in may be possible but is at the sole discretion of the property manager. Early check in permission may not be granted until 24 hours prior to arrival.
Can we arrange a late check out? click to open
A late check out is rarely granted due to the turnover needs of a villa. A late check out may only be granted 24 hours prior to your departure from the property and only when there is no check in scheduled on the day of your check out. If a late check out is urgently needed please contact us.
Are transfers to the property included? click to open
Select villas may include a one way or roundtrip airport transfer while others may provide an escort or meeting point. Arrival logistics will be handled by your dedicated concierge as well as other concierge needs. The property's transfer policy will be listed under the Policies section.

The arrival procedures vary from villa to villa, select villas may include welcome provisioning while other properties will provide basic arrival information.
What is the cancellation policy? click to open
Since these vacation homes are one of a kind properties, the cancellation policy is strict. We highly recommend considering trip/travel insurance to protect against any unexpected cancellations or issues that may arise.
For more details, please visit Travel Protection
What happens if the property becomes unavailable after I reserve? click to open
In the unlikely event, the rented property becomes unavailable due to a major issue that may affect a guest's experience or a transfer of ownership, Isle Blue will coordinate with the property manager to find an alternate property of equal or superior standard that is subject to the guest's approval. If an alternate property is not acceptable to the guest, the guest will receive a full refund.

Yes, we accept all major credit cards. American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Discover are accepted. Please note that credit card charges may be subject to additional fees. There are no fees with payment by wire transfer or check.
In the near future, we expect to accept a greater variety of payment methods and currencies via Stripe.
Is housekeeping included? click to open
Housekeeping tends to be a standard among vacation homes but the frequency may vary greatly depending on the property manager’s standards. Most properties will offer daily housekeeping (except Sunday and holidays) while other villas may only provide a mid-week cleaning. Please refer to the Policies section to learn about the housekeeping frequency of the property.

Yes. The property will provide bath and pool towels along with linens. Towels and linens will be refreshed as needed.
Are toiletries and tissues provided? click to open
A property may supply an initial supply of soap, shampoo, toilet paper and paper towels but replenishment of supplies once exhausted may be the responsibility of the guest. Each property varies in their handling of toiletries and paper products.
Is a hair dryer available? click to open
A hair dryer should be available at the property. Upon arrival, please check the bathrooms or closet. Typically, a hair dryer is included in each bathroom.

Extraordinary service from the very first contact about booking right through to the end of the vacation! During our stay we needed taxi transfers for airport and to Oistins Fish Fry - no problem and good pricing, the grocery service was perfect too. Highly recommend Isle Blue and their staff.


Mike V. Mar, 2017

We stayed at this property in April and had the most fabulous time. We loved the location right on the beach and the communal pool was huge and we had it to ourselves most of the time. We can highly recommend it and will be back for sure

Looks like a mini Santorini. Reaaly nice villa. Only issue is that there are too many steps for older people. Very nice and private. Cheryl the cook and Jessica the cleaner are easy to work with. Cheryl food was great!

Visiting Barbados was the perfect vacation. The people there were friendly and yet left you alone. They were not hounding you constantly to buy things. Gingerbread villa was way bigger than what we needed for 2 people, but we loved every inch of it and enjoyed the plunge pools especially and the sun deck up top. We spent our mornings relaxing at the pool and beach and our afternoons exploring the island. Cheryl, the cook, was marvelous. She cooked exactly what we wanted and even tweaked her recipe when she found out our likes and dislikes. Jessica, the housekeeper, kept things neat and tidy and having our laundry done was such a blessing. We had none to do upon our return home. The views and the beach on this property were unmatched. I cannot remember a time when I felt so refreshed just floating in the calm waters anywhere else. It was clear and breathtaking. We are already trying to figure out when we can return and bring our children. This was the best vacation we have ever had.

Jamie R. - Mirabelle May 26, 2022

Isle Blue was so easy to work with especially trying to book from the United States. We went for our honeymoon and we couldn’t be happier with our experience! Our concierge‘s Mehdi was on point for anything we needed, reservations, suggestions on where to go and booking excursions. We will definitely be making our stay at Mirabelle Villa a yearly trip!

The Villa was more like a compound, it was extravagant with the best views you could imagine. We felt safe and at home, thanks to the amazing staff we were provided! Dania The housekeeper was amazing and our concierge‘s Mehdi couldn’t have been any better!


Liz - Beach Villa Tamarind August 31, 2021

This was an amazing home and I would love to bring my family back here to vacation! ( came with friends on this trip)

What an amazing and easy process for us to reserve and go through to have such an amazing vacation! I would advise all my friends/ family to go through Isle Blue"


Stacey - Ocean O5 August 23, 2021

I cried when I left. Its just as the pictures show, stunning inside and out, multiple outdoor seating areas, pool was perfect. Beds all slept well and home is furnished with whatever you may need. A few stairs to get to boardwalk but well worth the exercise. Fryye Beach to the right Darkwood to the left. 3 minute drive to Jolly Harbour, Al Porta, Fox House, grocery store. Construction on the new amenities was not a bother at all, didn't even realize it until walking to the beach. Tamarind Hills Ocean 5 is a great choice.

We booked Ocean 5, Tamarind Hills, Antigua. The Villa was just as shown Lovely place with STUNNING views. Booking was easy. We used Perfect Chefs through the Concierge Mr. Bancroft, went to 2 of his restaurant recommendations and had every question we could think of answered. I will book with Isle Blue again without hesitation.


Courtney - Carisa August 12, 2021

"Isle Blue was a pleasure to work with leading up to and during our recent vacation to Saint Martin. This was our first time booking with Isle Blue and our expectations were far exceeded. We booked very last minute (within a week of departure) and our experience was virtually seamless. We initially reached out about a villa in Turks and Caicos but were informed that the villa was not available. Rob helped us continue looking and promptly reserved the villa we chose in Saint Martin. We had the best time and loved having an on-island concierge that could help coordinate chef service, dinner reservations, and Covid testing on-site. I would recommend Isle Blue to anyone looking to have a luxurious Caribbean vacation!
Villa Carisa is absolutely STUNNING. The villa is exactly as it appears in the photos and really exceeded our expectations. The decor is minimalistic and makes the villa feel so peaceful. We were greeted by the wonderful housekeeper, Cindy, who gave us the grand tour and allowed us to pick our bedroom (since we only reserved one). She was so kind and answered all of our questions, as well as entertained our "ooh"s and "ahh"s as we walked around the property. We did not feel the need nor want to really leave the villa. We made breakfast and lunch at the home every day and ate out only once- otherwise we got takeout for dinner and brought it back to eat at the outdoor dining table. You cannot beat the views at Carisa! Cindy gave us flexibility with her schedule, allowing us to let her know if a certain time was better for her daily cleaning. She kept the villa looking beautiful and always asked to make sure we were doing well and did not need anything. Also- the property is very secure. You have to be let into the gated Baie Rouge Residences community by a guard and then the home itself has a gate, which opens with a clicker, which you are provided, or may be opened from inside the house if you are home. We felt very safe and secluded, which was what we wanted for this vacation. You will have the most magical time in Saint Martin if you stay at Villa Carisa! It absolutely was the best vacation we have ever been on.


Jenell - Grand Bleu August 10, 2021

I can't say enough great things about my experience with Isle Blue! From beginning to end the service and communication was on point! The villa was absolutely AMAZING! This company has definitely changed the way I "stay". I will be doing all my long term travels with them! Planning my next stay now! Thanks I B!


WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING

"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
