The Garden Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3.0 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

This split-level, Mediterranean-style townhouse in the Merlin Bay complex is ideal for a relaxing holiday in the Caribbean sun. Home to several of our villas in Barbados, this development offers private accommodation and luxurious shared amenities in a prime beachfront setting.

Take your pick when it comes to swimming: in addition to a small private plunge pool, there is a shared lagoon-style pool – and then, of course, the Caribbean just a few steps away. Firefly is set amid luxuriant tropical vegetation, providing a wonderfully relaxing sense of privacy and seclusion.

Enjoy a coffee on the balcony overlooking the gardens and pool, with the blue Caribbean beyond, or dine alfresco on the small terracotta patio adjacent to the pool. The patio is accessed through the French doors of the bright, air-conditioned living area, with its open-plan dining area and attractive furnishings and artwork. The modern kitchen comes fully equipped, and there is also a cook service included in the nightly rate.

The master bedroom offers sea views from its private balcony. All three of the bedrooms are ensuite; two are located upstairs, and one is on the main level.

Firefly provides direct access to a beautiful swimming beach, via a private stairway. The Merlin complex is situated close to historic Holetown, where you will find local shops and restaurants. If you’re a golfer, the prestigious Sandy Lane course is also within easy reach.

Wonderful time

My family and I had a very pleasant stay and loved every minute of it. The staff was wonderful and very cheerful the whole time we were there. I would recommend this place without hesitation to anyone.

Firefly was a perfect fit for our family of 4. The views from the second floor balconies were incredible, the back patio relaxing, the pool quiet and the beach was perfect. The swimming and snorkeling were terrific. The condo itself was suitable but could use a kitchen upgrade as the current one is very tired and a bit "sticky". The beds and pillows are tired so a person with a bad back may be quite uncomfortable. All in all, we enjoyed our stay immensely and would return.

We all enjoyed our experience at Merlin Bay 6-Firely. Marleen was fantastic as well as our accommodations. Beautiful villa and pool with virtually our own private beach. Couldn't ask for anything more. Will definitely use your services in the future.

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

Great place for families. Well appointed, super clean and in an ideal location. The staff at the Villa were great and attentive to every thing. The beach is nice, private but a bit rocky but it was good for an early morning dip. a stroll up to the fish market, snorkeling and evening sunset watching. Great views of the pool and the ocean from just about every room in the villa and lots of space to spread out if you are traveling with a group. Some additional spiffing up of the place would make this a true gem. I would definitely return again and again.
