Private garden patio overlooking the beach and sea.

Ocean’s Edge Villa is an elegant three-bedroom property in Merlin Bay’s beachfront development. Ocean views, beach access, and an open floor plan make this property ideal for any family or couples’ vacation.

Each of Merlin Bay’s properties surround a communal swimming pool, but Ocean’s Edge is the only villa on the beach. This stretch of white sand and turquoise sea is a popular choice for snorkeling, strolling, and water sports. The private garden has been landscaped into a tropical paradise, and the wooden deck provides quiet, shady space to lounge and relax. Ocean’s Edge also offers a private balcony furnished with a BBQ grill and al fresco dining. The villa’s entry level holds the open plan kitchen, dining room, and sunken living area. The living area’s flatscreen TV comes with cable and a DVD player. There are two ensuite bedrooms on the upper level and one on the lower level. The upper level master suite leads out to a rooftop terrace, and the lower level suite opens to the plunge pool. Each bedroom has two twin beds that can be made up as a king, so the villa works for a variety of travelers. Ocean’s Edge Villa guests have access to full-time security, WiFi, and safes. A cook and housekeeper are available six days per week, and private parking is available.

Holetown’s restaurants, boutiques, and vibrant nightlife are only five minutes away from Ocean’s Edge Villa. Speightstown, a nearby fishing town, offers a more local experience with casual beach bars, art galleries, and museums.

Great Spot

Ocean's Edge Villa - Merlin Bay, Barbados both review

We loved everything about this villa. There’s great snorkeling right out front from the beach, which rarely has anyone other than Merlin Bay guests. There’s also a lovely big pool shared with the 8 other units, as well as our own splash pools. Pam, the cook, is excellent, and the layout was perfect for our family. It would work for any three couples.
There’s lots to do, but a car is a must. Driving is easy, albeit on the left side of the road.
You should definitely take the Shasa catamaran trip and swim with the turtles.

We’ve relied on Andrew and WhereToStay for our last 2 trips to Barbados and St. Lucia. It’s been a pleasure, and they met all our expectations each time. We plan to work with them again next winter for our annual family trip.

Ocean's View - A Great Villa

Ocean's Edge Villa - Merlin Bay, Barbados both review

We had a memorable holiday at Ocean’s View. What a great and perfect location for a family holiday. The accommodation is first class and the staff, Pam and Roxanne, were perfect. Pam cooked us some great bajun dishes and the boys loved the flying fish sandwiches. Roxanne kept the villa spotless and created her famous rum punch for us on a regular basis.
We would recommend this villa completely.

Andrew was supportive throughout the booking process and was able to get us early access to the villa on the first day. Thanks.

Ocean's Edge Villa - Merlin Bay, Barbados both review

I researched many options in a variety of areas. This villa surpassed expectations in comfort , location and staff.  It was worth the view alone, but add in lush tropical surroundings full of character and our welcoming staff of Pam and Tamika and you have a recipe for the perfect vacation.  We loved the snorkeling right off the beach, the resident birds and the monkey family we saw several times.  This was a family vacation with adult children and we truly relaxed, laughed and enjoyed the Bajan cuisine beautifully prepared by Pam.  We had rental cars and took several day trips to see the island which we all enjoyed….but always the highlight was returning to our villa, listening to the surf and looking forward to the next day.  The security was excellent and we all appreciated the warmth and friendliness of Barbados.  We would return in a heartbeat.

Shawna had some excellent suggestions for our stay and everything went smoothly with the stocking of the villa and food preparation prior to our arrival.  On our next Caribbean rental or visit this would certainly be my first stop for reservations.

A Wonderful Vacation

Ocean's Edge Villa - Merlin Bay, Barbados both review

We enjoyed our stay at Ocean’s Edge Villa. It’s a lovely 3 story villa at the very end of Merlin’s Bay, and has an extra deck that overlooks the beach and ocean. Our kids, 6 and 8 years old, loved the bottom plunge pool. They practiced going underwater to retrieve items for hours on end, which really built their confidence and swimming strength, and because it’s only 4 feet deep we felt more comfortable as they practiced without life jackets.

The ladies working at the villa were wonderful and helpful in every way. Having fresh laundry ready and meals prepared for us was a very nice perk, not to mention their friendliness and solid advice for our day trips.
There are quite a few stairs in this villa, so for example, my mom, who was on the bottom floor, had some difficulty at times with climbing up and down. Although we enjoyed having meals prepared for us, there is quite a bit of planning that goes into deciding menus and which evenings we would be staying at the villa for supper. There is also the cost of groceries to keep in mind.

The view is breathtaking and the sound of the ocean at night as you sit on any of the patios/decks is rhythmic and lulling.

The kids would have loved it if the main pool had a water slide, but we found some water park inflatables for the kids at Mullin’s Beach.

Andrew was extremely helpful right up to the day we left. The “handoff” from Andrew to Andy had us a bit confused, but we figured it out!
