Paradise, Perfect in Every Way!

Gingerbread at Merlin Bay, Barbados both review

This villa was amazing! The views are spectacular and we loved the design of the interior. It looked like something in Santorini with all the white and blue curved walls and arches. Gorgeous. The best part of the home is Cheryl, the cook, Jessica, the laundress, and Diedre, the concierge. Cheryl’s cooking was amazing! We ate every meal at the home, except on Friday night when we went to Oistins for the fish fry. She made whatever we requested for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Cheryl prepared great local, authentic Bajan meals, and many other meals that rivaled 5-star restaurants. What made it even more spectacular was our view from the terrace overlooking the pool and ocean. Breathtaking! The beds were comfortable and the air-conditioning was great at night. The area was quiet and we went to sleep to the sounds of the ocean crashing on the beach and rocks. The location was great for day trips to Animal Flower Cave, Hunte’s Garden, and Holetown. The most amazing part was when Cheryl and Jessica went out of their way to make my daughter’s 16th birthday so special. They decorated the villa with balloons and a banner, and prepared a special birthday dinner with homemade cheesecake. I loved that there was only one TV, and we only had it on twice. I can’t say enough great things about the home. I recommend swim shoes, as there is a reef directly behind the villas. There is an area to the left to go in around the reef.

Andrew was great to work with. He provided excellent communication and helped prepare everything for a perfect vacation.

Amazing Gingerbread

Gingerbread at Merlin Bay, Barbados both review

Gingerbread was awesome. The pools were cleaned every day, and the beach was terrific with decent snorkeling. The villa (gingerbread) was even better than we expected. There was a plunge pool on the second floor and our own small private pool on the first floor. The view from the roof top observation deck was great as well, and not every villa has a private pool and observation deck.
Cheryl (cook) & Jessica (house keeping) were very accommodating, and we would definitely return.

Andrew was terrific. He totally prepared us for what to expect, from when we stepped off the airplane to when we arrived at the villa.
We would gladly work with Andrew again.
