Villa Merlin Bay - Ocean View Barbados. Living up to its magically inspired name, the Villa Merlin Bay - Ocean View provides visitors to Barbados with the best of all possible worlds. As the name implies, it delivers ocean views and places you just steps from a quiet and private beachfront area. However, it is also a place of lush gardens and luxurious living spaces. Part of a small and elite complex of beautifully designed villas, it sits adjacent to the opulent pool terrace. Oversized and made of native stone, it is a beautiful spot for visitors to enjoy a swim, and it leads to the ocean sands nearby. However, the villa itself also features a large plunge pool, making it possible to swim in complete privacy.
The design of the three-bedroom villa is impressive. The interiors are a blend of pure white walls and ceilings with terra cotta floors, arched doors and windows and views of the gardens and pools; making it the epitome of tropical beauty. The main living level begins at the terrace where you enter the living room. Graciously rounded in shape it features a banquette and oversized windows opening to the scenery. Two steps up bring you to the dining area, also with unimpeded views. Nearby is the gourmet kitchen with ocean and garden views, and all you would need to prepare meals, drinks or snacks.
The three bedrooms are on the upper level and each is a bright and cheerful spot with full-sized, private terrace, enormous private bath and luxuriously designed interior spaces. There is a master suite and two additional king suites, and each is decorated in an appealing island style.
Whether you wish to visit with your family or your closest friends, the Villa Merlin Bay - Ocean View in the St. James area is sure to delight the whole group.

The villas at Merlin Bay are not new and glossy, but are really well designed to allow a family plenty of space and privacy. The plunge pools are great, but the kids rapidly move on to the bigger communal pool, which is big enough for a few families to enjoy simultaneously. And then on to the gentle ocean beach for a bit of wading and snorkeling.
We stayed in Ocean View, which is actually one of the furthest from the ocean in the complex, but has a great view, and great privacy for our family of five (two adults, one 16 year old, one 13 and one 9 year old).
We had the benefit of a wonderful housekeeper but didn't have the cook this time (we've stayed in Gingerbread before, with a cook, which was also great). We found that there is just TOO MUCH food when there is a chef.
The gardens around the complex are beautiful, and the whole place feels intimate and long way from the big resort feel, but super close to the very private little beach just below the pool.
The location, while a fair distance from the bigger towns, is actually a benefit if you have a car and can get to more interesting and remote parts of the island.
The agency was super helpful and fun of practical advice for getting the best out of our stay.
We'd go again in heartbeat!
We stayed in Ocean View (villa #5) and it was fabulous!
Steps from the pool (we had our own "plunge pool" on the deck) and a few more steps to the beach. The location was perfect!! The staff (Patsy and Yvonne) were wonderful. We will definitely stay here again.
