This idyllic Mediterranean inspired three bedroom villa complex sits on the exclusive The Garden, St. James community with lush mature gardens and stunning ocean views. Designed with outdoor living in mind, the villa features a unique tiered open plan design that draws the gorgeous scenery into every room.

The kitchen is modern and tucked away and the villa comes with a friendly cook who can prepare all your meals to your taste.

The formal dining room leads down through the breezy living room and out onto the lovely covered verandah where you can enjoy al fresco meals overlooking the gardens and guests have a choice of using the private plunge pool or lounging by the larger resort pool and sun deck with friends. The bay is very secluded and calm with excellent snorkeling and even the occasional visiting sea turtle!

Coastal chic decor blends with the cool clay tiles, spacious terraces and high white washed ceilings and the three bedrooms are elegantly furnished with island colours and each is en suite and has access to the patio via French doors.  

The bustling Holetown is a short five minute drive south and is home to many exceptional restaurants, luxury and local boutiques and a vibrant nightlife any given day of the week. The quaint fishing town of Speightstown is just north and offers a more local experience with casual beach bars, art galleries and museums.

There is a security guard at Merlin Bay and guests are well looked after by the friendly and efficient staff.

Merlin Bay - Hibiscus Reviews from our Visitors
The Clark Family

Location, accommodation and the apartment were all we had dreamed of. Alice and Coreen were excellent and looked after our every need - nothing was too much trouble. We will be back!

The Walker Family

A wonderful week here at the Merlin Bay Hibiscus. Alice and Corrine thank you for taking such good care of us. Corrine you kept the place spotless and Alice you kept our bellies full. Alice your meals were not only delicious, your presentation rivaled any upscale restaurant. A special thanks for the lovely loaves of coconut bread, the cassava pone and the cou-cou and red snapper. Your fried fish was to die for - so crisp on the outside and moist and tasty on the inside. We will miss you both and the special attention you extended to our family.

The Nichols Family

Thank you for a wonderful time and such lovely meals every day. We love Hibiscus and will come back to Merlin Bay again for our sons 1st birthday!

The Josack Family

Dear Alice & Coreen,

As always, you made it it home here at Hibiscus. Your thoughts and care for our family and friends is something that we are so grateful for. Wishing you both all the best now and always. Until we see you again!

The Josack Party

Dear Alice & Coreen,

Once again you have spoiled us! We cannot thank you enough for all you have done to make our stay such an incredible experience. We are lucky to have you! We are sorry to be leaving but looking forward to next year! You are all family and we love you dearly!

The Prosser Family

Service before and during our stay was extremely responsive and helpful. We have already decided to use you again next year!

The Bamford Family

The condo was great - felt homely, comfortable, clean, great views, great pool and lovely food! We enjoyed eating at JuJu's but we got better food by Alice. We can't think of anything that could have been done better - we will be back!

The Leonard Family

My family and I greatly enjoyed our time at Merlin Bay Hibiscus! We enjoyed numerous walks along the beach as well as much needed family time! Alice and Coreen were a daily treat! We loved the proximity to the beach, the plunge pool and the community pool. Andrew, our property manager, was very friendly and helpful with ideas!

The Lorraine Party

This was the first time visiting Barbados and we had the time of our lives. Coreen and Alice were super special! They are so amazing and we appreciated our time with them. It was our 37th Wedding Anniversary and Coreen flooded our bed with fresh flowers - it was incredible! Alice made our favourite foods and the island favourites as well. We can't wait to come back! Thank you for letting us stay in your favourite spot! It has become ours as well!

The Zatylny Family

Had a really nice time here at Hibiscus! First time in Barbados. Loved the sea turtles and monkeys - beautiful gardens. The kids loved the pools! Alice and Coreen are fantastic - love them! Thanks for the relaxing vacation!

The Bell Family

Hibiscus is perfect - that's why we come back! We love relaxing and listening to the sea. Alice and Coreen are both phenomenal people!

The Miller Family

We visited 4 years ago. This time we said we would come 'home' to Hibiscus and we did. What a wonderful week escaping the snow and cold of Ontario. Merlin Bay is a gem of a place and it was so good for our babies and our babies babies! A beautiful week! Our sincerest thanks to Alice and Coreen. Hibiscus is not Hibiscus without them! We will be back. That's a promise! Stirling's first big adventure.

The Evans Family

It was like coming home and we have had the most lovely, relaxing 2 weeks being spoiled by Coreen and Alice. It's wonderful not to have to think about cleaning and washing. It's an absolute joy to be fed by Alice, the fabulous cook! The flying fish, mahi-mahi and prawns are all flavours to savour. Thank you both so much for making our holiday perfect in our favourite spot.

The Josack Family


Dear Alice and Coreen,

What can we say but thank you, thank you, thank you! It is because of your kindness and hospitality that we have already requested to come back for a month!! Hibiscus is a beautiful home in a beautiful location but the two of you truly made our week here special. Every detail and moment was thought out and you definitely spoiled us! Alice, your cooking was beyond what any restaurant could match and the presentation was as lovely as the food was delicious (we will now all have to go on diets)! The flying fish, coucou, chicken, home baked desserts - especially your bread pudding! You truly showed us the flavours of Barbados! We are all so grateful to both Coreen and Alice for making every minute of each day special and for helping make Rick's birthday even more special! We feel as though you are now part of our family and we look forward to coming back and experiencing your warmth, kindness and incredible service once again!

Hibiscus is a beautiful beach front property with so much to offer and to do nearby.

Thank you ladies for taking such care of us all and taking us under your wings, sharing stories and laughter! Until we meet again!

The Bulman Party

This is our second time at Merlin Bay and we loved it! The views are amazing, the beach warm and sunny and the pool was perfect! We had a great time. Alice and Coreen took great care of us. The food was always delicious, the house cleaned to perfection and even laundry done daily. We plan on coming back again and again! Thank you so much!

The Cassola Party

Dear Alice and Coreen,

Two lovely discreet ladies who made us very comfortable at Hibiscus. Alice you are a fabulous cook, we enjoyed all the special meals you made for us. Corinne kept the house clean and our laundry done everyday. We enjoyed a lovely, relaxing vacation and we thank you both for making it so nice.

Happy New Year 2018!

The Cunningham Party

It was our fifth time to Merlin Bay - Great places to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed the food, staff and view.

Blue Sky Luxury does a great job!

The Mayer Family

We have had a wonderful stay at Hibiscus! Coreen & Alice have been our family away from home. They are helpful and we have had a wonderful stay because of Alice's meals and Coreen's attention to detail. The pool and the beach is fabulous!

The McCann Group

We had a beautiful week in Barbados. It was our first time as a family to this gorgeous island. The Hibiscus was such a warm and beautiful place from the decor to the wonderful chef Alice and Coreen, each made us feel pampered. This was one of our favorite vacations and hope to come back soon. The people in Barbados are warm and friendly, which was another lovely experience for our family. Easter was amazing at the quaint St. Francis Of Assisi church and a lovely meal at Lone Star. Though the best place to eat was at Hibiscus! Be sure to visit Crane Beach, Ted's Tours, Freddy On The Beach, take a cruise and soak up the gorgeous sun! We will be back again to make more lovely memories! Thank you!

The Bradley Party

Had a wonderful family holiday, dining, snorkeling, sun bathing, eating amazing food at Lone Star, Tides, Scarlet. We will all be dreaming about the banana doughnuts at Lone Star for years to come. We have had a truly relaxing and memorable week at Hibiscus. Huge thanks to Alice and Coreen aka the food fairy and the clean washing fairy!! Amazing orange and rum cake from Alice... we're already planning our next Barbados visit!!

The Scott Family

A million thank yous for a dreamy week in the sunshine. This was our first stay in Hibiscus and everything exceeded our expectations. This really is the most special place to stay - partly because of the fabulous set up with the pools and stunning little beach, but mainly because of Alice and Coreen whose warmth and care make it all perfect. We have eaten feasts everyday - the flying fish, blackened chicken, grilled tuna, fresh salads and apple crumble were all sublime. And we were totally comfortable in our spotless rooms with soft (so soft) fresh towels everyday. We hope to be back! THANK YOU!!

The Bell Party

Thank you for the beautiful and peaceful oasis that Hibiscus has provided our entire family! There was fun and sun for everyone to enjoy. Alice and Coreen were a dream team for keeping us well nourished with amazing meals and a tidy villa especially with a number of friends and family coming and going from the Hibiscus.

The Moran Family

We had an amazing holiday relaxing, surfing and paddle boarding. Hibiscus is lovely and well kept. Alice and Coreen are wonderful with delicious meals and a perfectly cleaned home. We appreciated all that you have done to make us feel welcome!

Cretf Party

Dear Alice & Coreen,

Always with a big smile on your faces, you made our day... every day so beautiful. I will miss your cooking soooo much! Thank you both for everything. It was nice meeting you.

The Ward Party

Thank you to Alice and Coreen for making our holiday as seamless as it was. Our month here has been so relaxing with the easy access to a pool or the sea to cool off in. The food has been beyond what we expected and the chocolate cake is a must have as well as rotis. Hibiscus has fulfilled every need we had and we will definitely be coming back soon xxx Alice and Coreen were lovely and made us love the villa even more (if possible)!

The Davis Party

WOW! This has been our 4th year staying at Hibiscus (our 10th year on the island). It has been consistently wonderful. Alice and Coreen are a wonderful team. They truly make our stay delightful and memorable, we love it here! The villa is perfect. It is a perfect layout, very clean and comfortable and Alice and Coreen make sure all our needs are met! This is definitely the best villa on the island!

The Stenbers Family

A big thank you for a great service during our 10 days stay. You spolied us with your cooking and service Alice and Coreen. We have had a lovey time and hope to be back.

The Johnson Party

Had a wonderful time at Merlin Bay. We enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts, meals were wonderful. Enjoyed golf, caves, boat rides and safaris. Hate leaving, loved the staff.

The Evans Party

What a wonderful re-visit. I have been kept busy building sandcastles and heading to the plunge pool for another swim with the little ones. What I have not been kept busy with is cooking and cleaning as the wonderful Alice and Coreen have spoilt us rotten all over again. We will miss them, but I think what Esmee will miss the most is chatting to the ladies through the window when she is meant to be asleep! Thanks and hope to see you next year xxx

The Hursts

A very comfortable villa which suited our party. Many thanks to the owners for a lovely New Year cake. Kendra (from Blue Sky Luxury) was exceptional in organizing everything. A wonderful holiday.

The Underwood Family

"All Round" perfect vacation. Sun, sand, sea, turtles, water skiing, snorkeling, fine food and great hospitality.

Alice and Corinne are your perfects hosts - great food and creators of a welcoming home.

Finnigan Family

This is our 3rd time to Merlin Bay twice to Gingerbread and over to Hibiscus this time. The homes are all great and so is the staff. Nothing to complain about! We will be back!

The Turner Party

We were so lucky to find Hibiscus, as we booked very last minute. We have all had a fantastic time here - all that we had wished for in a holiday and more! Alice and Coreen have been wonderful, and we will all go home feeling relaxed and rested. Hope to be back again soon. Thanks to Alice and Coreen.

The Davis Party

Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful villa. Alice and Coreen took such great care of us. All the food was deliciously prepared. The housekeeping was neatly done and helped keep us all organized. This was another amazing vacation. It was our third trip here and we hope to come many more times.

The Evans Family

The staff are beyond excellent! Really thoughtful, caring and interested. Our cook was inspirational. We have really enjoyed having them, they have often gone beyond the call of duty. Quite honestly, we find the villa so near perfect for us that we've just booked for the 3rd year running! Thank you, very very much.

The Franklin Pary

We had a great trip and learned about our family history

The Mohammed Party

Thank you so much for your warmth and hospitality. You all took really good care of us. The people of Barbados are really as warm as the beaches. We will miss this place.

You made our stay unforgettable and we thank you again for being such gracious and professional hosts!
