Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Brighton Plantation - Mule House

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 4-5

Self-catering apartments, located in the grounds of a former sugar plantation. Very comfortable accommodation with lovely views to the Atlantic Ocean and Mount Liamuga - a sleeping volcano, and its ascending rain forest. Each of the four apartments has direct access to the spacious tropical gardens where guests can relax or explore at leisure. The gardens are a great venue to barbecue or experiment with the local rums! Within easy reach of beaches, small local shops and restaurants. Please note, Mule House is an environmentally friendly establishment so we encourage recycling behaviour, use solar energy in part, offer communal laundry facilites as opposed to individual unit washers and use fans rather than energy guzzling a/c.

Self-contained, spacious and airy. Two of the apartments are first floor level and have access onto the veranda and two are at garden level. All are wired for both UK and US electrics, and have either free standing or ceiling fans. There is a communal US washing machine for guests personal washing (no extra cost for this) and access to a landline telephone.

Mule House is surrounded by spacious tropical gardens where there is a barbeque for guests use and part of our garden supplies guests with delicious seasonal Caribbean fruits/vegetables.

There are beautiful, mostly deserted white and black beaches, on the Caribbean and Atlantic coasts and a good variety of beach and water sports for both young and not so young as well as PADI courses for more experienced snorkellers and divers. Local small shops are a 10 minutes stroll. Larger supermarkets, fruit/vegetable/fish market, newsagents are situated in Basseterre, the capital 5 miles away. West Indian, Creole and International restaurants are scattered around St Kitts.

St Kitts is a very healthy Isle - our water is 100% safe to drink and visitors do not require inoculations.

Music Festival (3 days) is held annually in June on the last full weekend in the month. Music Festival 2013 will start Saturday22nd June. Carnival 10 days from Christmas Eve to early January, plus smaller village festivals take place all through the year. Our nearest festival - The Green valley Explosion takes place for a week over Whit each year.

Also dotted around St kitts are historical sites, most notably Brimstone Hill, recently promoted to being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This very impressive fort is being very carefully restored to full glory and boasts a museum inside its walls to provide visitors with a real sense of its changing history over the centuries. The National Museum of St Kitts is situated on the Bay Road in Basseterre. A first class golf course is located at Marriott hotel Frigate Bay for visitors enjoyment.

Two dudes from Finland lost in St. Kitts!

  • 5 out of 5
Spring 2013 we decided to capture Caribbean and chose St. Kitts & Nevis, without better reason :D. Those looked small and beautiful islands and weather would be a lot better than in Finland at this time of year.

When we arrived to Basseterre our landlord, Sue, was waiting for us at the airport and took us to the rent house. During two weeks we did sightseeing tours with our rental car and took one day trip to the Nevis island too.

We cooked every night with traditional Caribbean barbecue which our landlords gave us to use. In Basseterre there is a little fish hall where local fisheries bring their catches. If you are there at morning you can buy fresh fish, we recommend!

Beaches are must see. We liked South Friar´s Bay especially. In Basseterre local people sells vegetables and fruits at market every Saturday. And if you want hiking take a guide and go up to the edge of the caldera. We recommend O´Neill! Best guide on the island.

Finally we would like to say Thank You to our landlords, Sue and Ray, who heartly welcomed us and gave a lot of tips! Amazing holiday!

Mulehouse St Kitts

  • 5 out of 5
Mulehouse is a wonderful place to stay! I cannot recommend it highly enough! Myself and four colleagues stayed there for around 2 months while we were working in St Kitts. Sue and Ray are the perfect hosts, so helpful, kind and friendly. They provided us with lots of really great local information, and made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home and garden. The apartments are lovely, very clean, with a well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds...and the garden surrounding the house is stunning! A proper tropical experience, and Sue and Ray were always quick to offer us some of the delights from their garden...fresh coconut, soursop, papayas. Perfect! Thank you Sue and Ray for making our stay in St Kitts so enjoyable!

Our Return

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I have returned to Mule House twelve times. Starting in 2000 we only stayed for seven days to see what ST Kitts and Mule House was like. We returned for two weeks each year after that, rising to five weeks for our visit this year. Mule House run by Sue and Ray is ideal for relaxation with the tropical gardens bearing all kinds of fruit ( they taste so much better fresh from the garden).
The island of St Kitts is a beautiful place with many places to visit from the rain forest to old plantations and the beaches, the friendly people and and the laid back atmosphere gives people all the opportunity to time in the world to chill out and enjoy. We recommend Mule House to everyone.

St. Kitts Holiday at Mulehouse

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Mule House. The apartment was spacious, very clean and well appointed. The surrounding gardens are spectacular in beauty and bounty, including papaya, citrus, avocado, mango and star and passion fruit. Our gracious hosts, Sue and Ray, were always helpful from meeting us at the airport to assisting with shopping and beach recommendations. Sue also gave valuable assistance in dealing with a rental car problem.

We highly recommend these accommodations.

We returned to the Mule House in January this year and it was as good if not better than we remember. The owners are very friendly and helpful from meeting you at the airport (after a hour or so plane delay!) to help on whats going on around the island. The apartments are excellent, lovely and airy with nice outdoor space to enjoy the warm evenings. The island has lovely beaches and we easily spent a very happy two weeks on the beaches and relaxing in the beautiful garden at the mule house. Writting this review makes me want to book my next trip away!

Mulehouse and St Kitts

  • 5 out of 5
We first holidayed in Mulehouse accompanied by some friends, we only stayed for a week, because we didn't know what the accomodation or the Island would be like. We all ejoyed the holiday so much we went again in 2001 for two weeks, and we have been going every year since, the only difference now, is we go for four weeks. Why you may ask? well relax and enjoy; the accomodation is just what we want, the garden is a wonderful place just to look at or wander around. The variety of fruit that is growing in the garden is very wide. There are coconuts ,banannas, oranges, papaya, custard apple, mango to name but a few and they are available to eat (subject to asking Sue or Ray) the variety of birds is also very interesting. This year we watched a humming bird and nest, when we arrived there were eggs and when we left the chicks had flown.When we decide to eat in ther is the usual kichten to prepare your food or we can use the barbecue outside we always eat outside, the weather is always warm enough and when we go out for an evening meal you are just spoilt for choice.
The many beaches on the island are beautiful and there is often a local bar on the beach that will supply food and drink, the local food is excellent.When you decide to do something different, there are rain forests, mountains and the Brimstone hill fortress to explore.
Go to the Mulehouse and St Kitts relax and enjoy. I will be, next year.

Brighton was one of the first plantations to be established on St Kitts. 5 miles out of Basseteere on the Atlantic coastline we enjoy fantastic ocean, rain forest and mountain views. The hamlet of Brighton is situated between Cayon and Ottleys villages, which offer small superettes, local bakers, post office, Green Valley Pub and other small eateries. As Mule House is located in the UNESCO designated St Mary's BioSphere Reserve, our location provides an excellent opportunity to explore lower reaches of the rain forest and walks to the nearest shoreline at Hermitage Bay and experience the diversity of flora and fauna from mountain ridge to reef first hand.

Other Activities: Rain forest walks, scenic railway trip, historical sites/museums, visit Nevis, our little 'sister' isle.
