Gingerbread is just a few steps from a very private beach, and tennis and golf are just a few minutes away. One previous guest wrote, "The grounds are nicely kept. The pool is great. The beach is clean and very private."

Unique Property!

Gingerbread is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath stand-alone villa situated among 7 split-level villas. It is built around a central swimming pool, and rests on a low sea cliff with steps leading down to the beach.

Gingerbread has three living levels as well as a private roof top deck. There is a private plunge pool on the same level as the central, communal swimming pool used by all guests in the Merlin Bay community.

The entrance, living room, dining room, and the dining terrace are on the main level offering sea views. Located on the upper level, the master bedroom has a sitting terrace with views of the Caribbean Sea. Bedroom No. 2 is filled with the cool breezes and scents of the surrounding gardens. Bedroom No. 3 features a king-size bed with a sea view. From the main sun deck, there are steps that lead to the secluded beach directly in front of Merlin Bay. Here guests can sunbathe, swim, and snorkel.

Villa Note:

Gingerbread is located a short drive from the Royal Westmoreland Golf Resort and Sandy Lane Hotel where 5-star golf, tennis, and spa facilities are available.

Amazing Gingerbread

Gingerbread at Merlin Bay, villa 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.
