Know Before You Go...

Eden by the Sea is exactly what the name implies - a garden paradise resting at the water’s edge. In a complex with 7 other private villas, Eden offers the best of both worlds: privacy and seclusion with action and social opportunities. You can spend your days stretched out on a lounge chair soaking up the sun or snorkeling in the sea. In the evenings, you can join other guests around the pool to share a cocktail and some good conversation.

Beachfront! Great snorkeling!

Eden on the Sea has unobstructed ocean views and an ideal location in the Merlin Bay complex. This resort villa is a comfortable, private tri-level getaway.

Smoky brick stretches across the patio and surrounds the expansive lagoon-shaped pool. Sunbathe on sea-blue loungers amidst lush gardens, or walk down to the beach to snorkel and build sandcastles. There’s al fresco dining on the patio and above on the balcony. The property is surrounded by thick gardens, and the interior reflects the scenery. Ivy and floral accents, wicker furniture, and pale neutrals add a soothing atmosphere to the home. Amiable staff, including a maid, laundress, gardener, and night security, looks after guests. The rooftop terrace on the third floor has two loungers that overlook the gardens and the sea.

This unique home offers three living levels and a private roof terrace. On the first floor, the sunken living room opens to the dining terrace through French doors. An entertainment center is hidden in the armoire, and a built-in couch sits between a petrified wooden coffee table and wicker armchairs. Artwork inspired by nature accents the walls, furnishings, and surfaces. Stairs lead up to the dining room and kitchen, which both have clean lines and open spaces. Stainless steel appliances, a coffeemaker, electric kettle, and cookware fill the fully-equipped kitchen. Upstairs on the second floor, the Master Suite’s king bed faces an ornate window and oversized dresser. A leafy branch and two tropical birds are painted above the French doors leading to the balcony, and the room is filled with natural light all hours of the day. There’s also a queen suite on this level, with hints of deep blue and exposed ceiling beams. On the ground level, the third bedroom opens to the pool and has two twin beds that can be made up as a king. All three bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and air-conditioning.

Eden on the Sea is on the western coast of Barbados, a short drive from Speightstown. Holetown is a mile away, with duty-free shops and waterfront restaurants.

Eden on the Sea at Merlin Bay, Barbados both review

Our vacation at Merlin Bay was exceptional. The location is ideal, the property is beautiful and well-maintained, and our villa was perfect for our group of six. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Andrew was a pleasure to work with. Every detail was attended to. Would definitely use again.
