We have never had such a relaxing time. Staff are very good and helpful. We spent so many hours chilling out on the lovely deck. Both beaches were great as was the turtle trip. Thanks for the tip. The apartment had all we needed, clean and comfortable. As for the rum punch
This is a special place for us and we had to come here again because it is just perfect for us. We love the gardens, fresh mangos (sorry Mr Monkey) the staff Andrew and Onita, the monkeys the pool and the lovely beaches on the door step. Above all the Bajans are so warm and welcoming and so laid back.
The children's swimming has improved hugely and they love being in the water now. Hope to come again
The garden apartment met all my expectations and was perfect for our stay. It is set in luscious tropical gardens and the large teak deck is a perfect place to relax with its beautiful views of the garden and pool; indeed it is difficult to drag yourself away from this oasis to sample the delights of the Island.
However, the fabulous Mullins beach is a few minutes walk away, near enough for a morning swim in the clear turquoise water.
The apartment was extremely comfortable with efficient air conditioning and meticulously clean with everything you could need, a real home from home. The housekeeper and manager were both very friendly and helpful but discreet and met our every need. The owners Simon and Sarah have extensive local knowledge and the information provided about the property and Barbados was accurate and up to date. The quality of the food and service was amazing from JuJu's beach bar which has the best rum punch and barracuda to the amazing Cliff Beach Club and The Fishpot Restaurant. Calypso Cruises provided a wonderful days sailing with all snorkelling gear provided as well as an open bar and delicious food.
The people we met in Barbados were a delight and they couldn't have been more helpful or friendly - really enhancing the wonderful experience and enriching our perfect holiday.
Short but sweet stay at the Pool Apartment. The gardens look even better than our last visit. Andrew and the maids as friendly and helpful as before. The two of us had a really nice week with plenty of chilling out, beach walks and some excellent barracuda and snapper at JuJu's upgraded café on the beach. The new entrance looks very good. Thanks again S&S.
This was our best holiday ever. First time in Barbados for us but definitely not the last, we have got withdrawal symptoms. The Bajans are so laid back and have a great sense of humour. Wherever we went they were welcoming and helpful. The garden apartment is very well kept and has a fantastic wooden deck built around a big mango tree. Sadly the mangos were not yet ripe in April. The housekeeper Oneta is lovely and keeps the apartment spic and span. Mullins beach is very close by and we spent many hours there and on the next door beach called Gibbs. The pool and gardens are fabulous.
We ate in JuJu,s, Island Plates, Bombas and the beach restaurant at Mullins.
Thank you for the excellent local information Simon & Sarah - your staff are great. Jess
We (2 adults and 3 children) spent a wonderful 10 days in the garden apartment (3 bedroom format) at Mullins Bay House. The apartment was clean, well appointed and had everything we needed as a family. Having breakfast (and an evening rum punch!) on the decking was a lovely feature of the property. Lots of local advice, which we used, in the handbook from the owners Simon & Sarah. The location of the apartment was perfect for strolling to the beach and nearby bars and restaurants. We will definitely be back!
