MERLIN BAY - SECRET GARDEN, Saint James, Barbados

This unique, completely detached two-story villa with its own private gated garden in this exclusive Barbados West Coast complex is ideal for your next family retreat. Situated on a low sea cliff with private stairs leading down to a stunning sheltered bay, this is a truly special place for families or groups of friends looking for privacy but also room to entertain.

The villa offers three very spacious bedroom suites, all en suite with air conditioning, ceiling fans and its own terrace. The tropical gardens are lush with a pool terrace for outdoor dining and sun loungers. Guests can access the gorgeous lagoon styled resort swimming pool with cool coral stone sun deck via the gate at the end of the garden. From the pool deck the secluded beach, with soft white sands and exceptional swimming and snorkeling only steps away.

Secret Garden is really an excellent choice for groups that plan to entertain. The garden provides ample space for BBQing and lounging, there are two additional dining areas inside including one in the coral stone fernery dedicated to entertaining with a sit-up bar complete with sink, fridge, and wine rack. The sunken living area is air-conditioned but opens out completely to flow smoothly outside to the pool deck.

For those looking to venture out from this private oasis, Speightstown is just a short drive north with many options of oceanfront dining and casual chic beach bars, a lovely art gallery, and even a local museum, while Holetown is to the south and a popular destination for those looking for chic bars and nightclubs. Water sports, golf, and other island activities can be arranged with the help of our concierge services. The dedicated cook and housekeeper at the villa will ensure a relaxing vacation.
