Choosing a villa for your summer staycation in Barbados:

If you’re a local in need of an escape from the usual touristy spots in Barbados, then we urge you to check out our popular Merlin Bay private villas.

The biggest draw to our Merlin Bay complex is the fact that is a private sanctuary -offering a completely different experience to that of a bustling, touristy hotel. Children and families are absolutely welcome, but with only 7 rental villas on the resort, the calm, intimate, and relaxing atmosphere is never compromised.

Located in the magnificent St James area, you will be in walking distance from Holetown, and your favourite restaurants / bars. You’ll even have a private beach just steps away from your front door, which is only to be enjoyed exclusively by those staying on the Merlin Bay complex.
