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.
