The garden is lovely and lush green with comfy sun loungers. There is a good size pool but it needs clearing of leaves - I didn't see that happen during our stay. The cottage is clean and well equipped with air con in bedrooms. The kitchen/living room doesn't have air con - and it really needs it for the evening as to keep room cool you need to leave door open which lets Mosquitos in (and there were more here than other places we visited during our stay this year). The cottage is typical old bajan style so if you want modern facilities then it's not for you. Having said all this it's in a great location for beach and is close to bus route to get around the west coast of the island.
My husband and I just returned from a two week stay at the garden apartment at Mullins Bay House. It's a very low key family oriented venue with a great location close to beach and restaurants. Andrew and Juanita were very accommodating.
Three separate units share the property, so there is little privacy. The first week two families stayed in the large house next to us. They were lovely and friendly, but four loud children were swimming in the pool beginning at 7 am every day.What a wake up call. Thank god we love kids! Felt like intruding on their vacation using the pool. Situation would be best if a large group rented all three units!
The property itself is in need of updates and maintenance. Amenities are bare bones which is difficult when traveling from abroad. We had to buy beach chairs, umbrella, and a cooler. Access to laundry facilities were difficult because the staff was using it most of the day and it was locked at night. Internet was down for a week and a half and we had to spend $ purchasing an international plan.
With a few tweaks, some updates and decorating, this property could be beautiful.
Barbados is paradise! We traveled north, south, east and west and swam at several beaches... one more gorgeous than the other! The people are friendly and willing to help. Restaurants were delicious. All in all, a great vacation.
The Garden Apartment is lovely, spacious and light with the most wonderful sitting area outside in a corner of the beautiful garden. Although so close to Mullins Beach it is a calm and peaceful spot so you get the best of both. You are only a short distance from good shops and some of the best restaurants in Barbados. Simon & Sarah are easy to deal with and provide copious information before you travel. The delightful Andrew and Oneta looked after us during our stay, we had everything we needed. We will definitely go back, it was perfect.
If we visit Barbados again this is where we will stay. Close to the beach and tucked away in a quiet spot the apt/house has a lovely garden and pool and made it really easy to enjoy every moment of our stay. The complex is well maintained and the staff are always happy to help. Monkeys birds and other lovely creatures abound adding to the pure joy of 'being on holiday'
The Garden Apartment was just right for us. We loved the big wooden deck with views of the pool and the beautiful gardens. Bedrooms were comfortable and the maid Oneta was very efficient. Ate plenty of fish from the local fish market. hired one of the cars to explore the South and East coasts. So different from the west coast. Loved Oistins fish fry on Friday night and Crane beach especially the Deli above the beach. All very relaxing.
