Our view

One of eight family villas in the ocean-front cluster of Merlin Bay, Hibiscus has access to the poolside terrace which leads down to the sleepy beach below. It’s a rustic house in a remarkable setting.

In brief

  • All bedrooms en suite
  • Cook service included
  • Plunge and resort pool

About the villa

These eight sea-facing houses are privately owned and individually furnished, but they do have a lot in common. Each offers inclusive cook service, and has its own plunge pool, a combined living/dining room, and three bedrooms, each en suite, air conditioned, and with a terrace or a balcony. All are built in similar style, their red clay roof tiles and whitewashed walls giving an outward appearance of rustic charm. And they group together on the cliff top around a twenty-one metre free-form swimming pool, its luxuriant tropical setting redolent of an oasis. It is here that an old maxim comes to mind, that ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’, for Merlin Bay has a very sociable atmosphere, particularly appreciated by families, but also fun for groups of friends. Hibiscus has an enviable advantage in that its open terrace is directly beside the pool, accessed by double doors from the attractive and airy living room. Adjacent to Eden on the Sea, the villas would make a fine pair if booked together for two families.

About the area

St James

Average weather

St. James parish runs along the central stretch of the island’s west—the Platinum Coast. Its white-sand beaches are backed by luxury hotels and villas including Sandy Lane, long patronized by royals and film stars. The seaside settlement of Holetown is at the centre of the parish: its bars, restaurants, and craft shops have a laid-back, local vibe. The Holetown Festival each February, one to catch on a St. James holiday, celebrates its status as the first British settlement on Barbados, with live music and a street fair.
