Know Before You Go...

Secret Garden is a family-friendly villa in the Merlin Bay development on the northern end of Alleynes Bay. This villa is ideal for those who can’t choose between a resort experience or a private villa, because you have total privacy at the villa and resort amenities mere steps away. The villa has its own plunge pool and sundeck nestled into tropical gardens, and Merlin Bay’s lagoon pool and sheltered beach are just outside the front door.

Ideal choice for families or group of friends

Secret Garden is an elegant three-bedroom property in Merlin Bay’s beachfront development. The villa’s design and location are convenient for guests of all ages, which lends appeal for multi-generational family vacations.

The villa’s lush gardens have been landscaped into a tropical paradise, and circular stone paths wind throughout the lawn. Tall trees provide shade to several sitting areas and loungers, while vibrant bougainvillea adds a pop of color. Guests can cook on the barbecue grill and dine by the pool or in the garden. There’s also a shaded, open-air courtyard off the kitchen with brick-laid floors, a dining table, a ceiling fan, and a wet bar. The plunge pool offers private space to swim, but Merlin Bay also has a lagoon-style swimming pool with a coral sundeck. Stairs lead from Merlin Bay’s sundeck down to a soft, white sand bay where guests can snorkel, stroll, and try water sports.

On the entry level, there is an open plan kitchen, dining room, and sunken living area. The kitchen is well-equipped and the dining room sits between the living area and the courtyard. The living area features a curved sectional, a flatscreen TV with cable, and a DVD player. The entry level is air-conditioned, but opens to the pool deck via French doors. Secret Garden offers three spacious bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and terrace access. The master bedroom has a flatscreen TV, a king bed, and a private terrace. The other two suites both have two twin beds that can be made up as a king.

For those looking to venture out, Speightstown’s restaurants, beach bars, and culture are just a short drive north. Holetown’s bars and nightclubs are to the south. Secret Garden’s dedicated cook and housekeeper ensure a relaxing vacation.
