About Sarah or Simon Ellis
We live in Cambridge and have two teenage children who keep us busy! We love to travel and have many friends and family around the world but Barbados always remains in our hearts as the best place in the world.
Sarah or Simon Ellis purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Sarah or Simon Ellis chose Mullins
Barbados was the first place we visited when Simon actually managed to comletely switch off and relax. We love the people and the island and caught the bug so continued to return. Once we had our own family we decided it would be lovely and special to have a home from home in which the children felt safe and comfortable and we knew we could start relaxing straight away. This home is very special to us as it is very family orientated with it own large garden and pool and only a short walk to the beach and all its amenities. We knew this would appeal to others so decided to share it and we hope you agree.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is located in a peaceful and tranquil setting away from the hustle and bustle of the main west coast but close enough to walk to one of the best beaches on the island, Mullins and only a mile from the upcoming Speightstown with all its bars and restaurants. A car is not necessary as there is an excellent bus service a few minutes walk away which can transport you up and down the West Coast.

A perfect pocket of paradise, set in lush gardens
Mullins Bay House has a unique and magical charm of its own - with a relaxed, homely feel - you can't help but unwind as soon as you arrive. The house is airy and spacious with everything you need for a stress-free break and its layout inside works wonderfully to give flexibility depending on how many people you are traveling with . The staff are incredibly respectful and helpful and keep the house and grounds spotless. The house is set in beautiful gardens with a wonderful pool, with a great set of loungers and chairs close-by. There's plenty of natural shade under the palm and mango trees or on one of the many verandas which are also fitted with fans.
The beach is just a 5 minute stroll away and close enough for a pre-breakfast swim. Local transport is a 5 minute walk too and local buses are regular and great fun to travel on with a fixed fare making life very easy! The local people are also so warm and welcoming and very helpful if you're not sure where to hop off!
The location is also fantastic - not just for the beach and buses also as it's located between 2 great towns - Holetown and Speightstown which have banks, supermarkets and plenty of vibrant places to eat and drink.
We loved the beach bars - especially JuJus on the way to Holetown and also the Bristol Bar in Speightstown for live music and sundowners. Smokey' s fish stall is just a few minutes drive away too and provides an easy and delicious supper for the BBQ.
Sarah and Simon know the area and local people so well and are loved and respected by them. They are full of ideas on what to do and see and couldn't be more helpful and caring in making sure your stay is nothing short of perfect.
In summary MB House is a little corner of paradise, set in lush gardens, with bird and monkey life all around, a beach at the end of the road and warm turquoise waters to swim in. All this plus the heartwarming and wonderful, authentic Barbadian vibe means it's a very hard place to leave! You're guaranteed to return home happy and relaxed and wanting to be back!
Home from Home
This was our second time staying at Mullins Bay House. It worked so well for us the first time round we had no hesitation in booking again. There were 12 in our group, age range from 6 to 80 years old. The house offers flexible accommodation, generous beautifully kept gardens and a large swimming pool, perfect for a family holiday.
The house is clean, comfortable and we were very well looked after by Andrew and Juanita. It's a great base to explore the Island from, everything is within easy reach, the beautiful West coast beaches, the wild rugged East coast and all the tourist attractions. Mullins Bay beach is a short stroll away where you can enjoy the lovely clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, a white sandy beach and sundowners at the beach bar. Highly recommended is a trip on a catamaran with Calypso Cruises, it's run by father and son, Nick & Val Knowles. The 5 hour lunch cruise offers an opportunity to swim with turtles, snorkel and explore shipwrecks, with the added bonus of delicious food and unlimited drink. We did the 3 hour sunset cruise this time which was also fantastic.
There are many and varied eateries on the Island but if you want to 'eat in' the local fish markets are fantastic offering lovely fresh fish (from flying fish to lobster) and the roadside vegetable stalls have an array of local produce, perfect for a BBQ.
So if you want a holiday lazing on the beach or by the pool with a rum punch in hand or a more active holiday exploring the Island look no further!
Thank you Simon and Sarah for opening your house up for us to enjoy......again!
Beautiful house, great location
We stayed at Mullins Bay House for a week, and had a great time. The house is spacious, nicely decorated and in a perfect location close to Mullins Bay. The house set in lovely gardens, and the pool is a great place to relax away from the beach. Our hosts were really helpful with recommendations for eating, drinking and activities on the island, and were on hand with any ad-hoc requests we had whilst we were there.
The perfect holiday
We had such a good week! The house is as described; everything you needed there; clean and well maintained. The manager and housekeeper were so friendly and welcoming. We had one traditional meal cooked for us on our first night which was delicious. Also enjoyed BBQing fresh fish by the pool. Also ate at Ju-Ju's - I recommend the barracuda! And a rum punch both there and at Mullins Beach at sunset. The beach is just a few minutes walk away - perfect for an early morning swim. Other highlight - watching the monkeys collect mangos in the garden from the veranda; Everything so comfortable - house lovely and cool, veranda shady - the perfect spot!
I stayed at Mullin’s House with some girlfriends at the end of March. It was my first trip to Barbados and I wasn’t disappointed on any level. The house was spacious, light and airy – surprising cool, given the outdoor temperatures. The bed was comfortable and gardens were just stunning. The house comes with TV, DVD, WiFi etc, and two spacious sitting areas, but we used none of them. The shady terrace overlooking the garden was the place to have breakfast, read, drink rum punch and watch the monkeys pass by on their daily circuit.
It’s tempting to stay put because it’s so beautiful, but only 5–7 minutes walk away is Mullin’s Beach with picture postcard turquoise sea. There are regular buses up and down the coast that make getting to other towns and beaches stress-free.
I’d recommend this house for anyone. It would be perfect for children, but equally suitable for a romantic getaway. I have already booked my flights to return this summer.
Fabulous Barbados Villa
This wonderful property within a few minutes walk of beautiful Mullins Beach was perfect for our stay. We received a warm welcome at the airport from our taxi driver and this set the scene as we found everyone we met on Barbados friendly and eager to please from Simon and Sarah's staff to the local bus drivers.The property is set in beautiful lush gardens and is lovingly maintained, spotlessly clean and equipped for all holiday needs with the deck area providing a perfect large, cool ,shaded spot for dining and relaxing.
We visited the beautiful local Mullins and Gibbs Beaches which are near enough for a quick morning swim or perfect for a whole day relaxing or water sports.It was possible to rent beach beds within steps of the Mullins Beach Bar or find a quiet idyllic spot just around the corner on Gibbs Beach. We spent our time dining on very fine fish at local restaurants or beach bars and swimming in the crystal clear sea interspersed with boat trips and turtle spotting. Activities are very easy to organise with Simon and Sarah's extensive local knowledge and recommendations and the helpfulness of the local people. We had a delightful holiday and will highly recommend this property to my friends and plan to take my family again soon.
