About Sarah or Simon Ellis
We live in Cambridge and have two school age 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 Apartment 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 Apartment unique
The apartment is located in a peaceful and tranquil setting away from the hustle and bustle of the main west coast road 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.

Lovely spacious apartment with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The grounds and pool were just perfect and so peaceful but only 3 minutes walk from the beach. We are hoping to stay again one day!
Amazing gardens for sunbathing and playing with a fabulous pool. We loved sitting on the decking area which was lovely and cool. Andrew was a great help around the accommodation. 2 bedroom garden apartment was really nice. Would stay again.
Fabulous place for a gorgeous holiday
From the moment of arrival - the lush mature garden and the welcoming items in the fridge, I knew it was going to be a special holiday.
The garden apartment is spacious and light. The kitchen is very well equipped and the beds comfortable. Along with the large lounge there is a huge deck which was brilliant for eating outside enjoying the bougainvillea, watching all the wildlife including monkeys playing in the garden and beautiful humming birds, not to mention swift access to the pool which is surrounded by beautiful palms and mango trees.
The beach is about 7 minutes walk away with beautiful white sand and clear blue water. Access to the fish market, shops, cafes, restaurants and other beaches is easy because the busses are so frequent.
Simon and Sarah were fabulous hosts - unobtrusive but when needed, attentive to all requests and ready with recommendations for where to eat, which turtle cruise to take, where to surf etc.
All in all a lovely, relaxing, special holiday - still talking about it to friends! This wasn't my first time at Mullins Bay House, and it won't be my last.
One of Barbados’s hidden gems.
Very comfortable and homely. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of utensils, plates and glasses.
Very big pool and private grounds in tranquil setting.
Great house for any occasion. Can’t recommend this property highly enough. One of Barbados's hidden gems!
I stayed in Simon & Sarah’s garden apartment in December, just before Christmas. I couldn’t have had a better time; when I arrived, the fridge was stored with a couple of welcome beers from the local Banks Brewery and the bookcase had a variety of novels and non-fiction to take in by the pool, or the decking immediately outside the front door. This kept me happily occupied during the early mornings that I’d experience due to the time difference with the UK. Guides to shops, restaurants and other miscellaneous activities are conspicuously placed on the table so it’s easy to make plans. There’s a strong WiFi connection aswell, though I tried to stay away from emails and the like while in such a glorious country!
I slept perfectly in a very comfortable bed - no mosquitoes made it through the windows and I could regulate temperature easily - important on humid nights! The kitchen is equipped for any kind of meal you wish to cook, and above all the Mullins Bay House staff are wonderful; both efficient and discreet yet prepared to stop to get to know the guests; a great way to engage with the local community while enjoying your holiday. Simon & Sarah have been coming to Barbados for years; they have a profound understanding of the island’s character and culture and did everything to ensure maximum satisfaction during my stay. Highly recommended!
Typical bajan old school cottage
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.
