Private garden patio overlooking the beach and sea.
Ocean's Edge puts you close to golfing, tennis, water sports (scuba diving and snorkeling), and enough duty-free retail therapy to keep you happy for weeks. If you start to wear down and need a little R&R, the staff at the villa will be happy to spoil and pamper you as if you were royalty. You can relax by the plunge pool all day long, and magically, without lifting a finger, dinner will be served on the covered patio just as the sun sets over the Caribbean Sea. Just as magically, the dishes will be whisked away and the kitchen cleaned before you can finish your last glass of wine. Now that's a vacation.
"Ocean's Edge" or No. 1 Merlin Bay is one of eight villas at the private Merlin Bay complex in St. James and is one of only two right at the ocean's edge, and the only one with a really private beachfront garden. This split-level townhouse has beach and sea views from each of the three living levels, as well as a private roof top terrace. Ocean's Edge has a beach location and is set amidst the tropically landscaped gardens of the Merlin Bay community.
Accommodations include three air-conditioned bedrooms with bathrooms en-suite. One bedroom is located on the lower level and opens to the plunge pool terrace. The master and third bedrooms are on the upper level. There is a private balcony off the master bedroom, with direct ocean views, and stairs from here lead up to the roof top terrace.
Recently the owner has built a deck right at the edge allowing for stunning views of the landscaping, and pristine beach below.
This villa is equipped with cable TV, VCR and radio/cassette player in the living room. There is a gas outdoor barbeque. Dining may be indoors or alfresco under the stars, on your private garden patio overlooking the beach and sea. There is a night watchman for the whole complex.

Ocean's Edge Villa - Merlin Bay, Barbados reviewVisited: May 2015
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.
