Our view

A delightful family villa in the exclusive Merlin Bay enclave of eight, Ocean View is aptly named, attractively furnished and enviably positioned for the beach and busy Holetown.

In brief

  • Beachfront
  • Cluster of houses: Private plunge pool, access to shared pool
  • Cook included for Christmas bookings

About the villa

Cheerful art and artefacts, and furnishings in bold stripes and summery florals bring bright splashes of colour to the white wood furniture and whitewashed walls of this light and airy family villa. The two storey house has an air-conditioned sitting room, open plan to a split-level dining area and well equipped kitchen, and offers cook service to ensure effortless leisure for its guests. Double doors lead from the living area to a furnished terrace and pretty plunge pool, and each of the three en suite bedrooms opens on to a balcony or terrace. The eight villas of Merlin Bay cluster around a fabulous free-form swimming pool in a broad coral stone terrace, which is a very sociable space for all the guests, and steps lead down from here to a secluded sandy beach below. Ocean View is quietly set well back from the pool but, as its name suggests, has views straight through to the blue of the sea. A five minute drive away, Holetown has a lively atmosphere, lovely shops and a fine variety of restaurants.

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.
