I like to say thank you for coming and it would be nice to see you again. Karin
What a delightful property. Peaceful lovely spacious gardens just a few minutes walk from Mullins and - even better - Gibbs Beaches. Cooling swims in the super pool, Choice of patios or gardens for relaxing in or out of the sun. Fresh mangoes, avocados, limes and golden apples straight from the tree and occasional visits from entertaining local Green Monkeys. A veritable - and affordable - Paradise in which to escape the northern Winter. Thank you - will be back - again and again and again.
In terms of positives: There is a beautiful landscaped garden with a couple of outdoor sitting areas to enjoy the wildlife and palms, and a seating area inside if it gets too hot.
There's also a generous closet to hang clothes and store cases.
The location is perfect - a 10 minute walk to Mullins beach and the cottage itself is secure.
The negatives: there are additional charges for AC and WIFI whereby we thought this was included. The cottage is annexed to the owner's property and we could sometimes hear their music/TV. We didn't mind this as much as we would just listen to our own music and it does all go quiet when time for sleep.
The lack of privacy was slightly uncomfortable however, and we only had one set of keys between four (as we were leaving we learnt there was a remote.) The utensils and kitchen was also outdated - no microwave to reheat local food, and a very rusty can opener. When we fed this back to the owner upon leaving, she said that perhaps we shouldn't have so many beers... she was referring to our crate of beers but we were actually using the can opener for baked beans, and everyone drinks a beer on holiday.
The phone is also linked up to the owner's house. When a friend called they were simply told not to and no message was taken, even though we checked with the maid Juanita that we could use it to make/receive local calls.
None of this was enough to ruin our holiday but it would be good if the owner addresses some of these issues (most will be down to taste) and takes it as constructive criticism. From the owner's response to the couple of negative reviews on this site, they may take it or leave it.
In any case, a good basic property but wasn't ideal for the sort of holiday we envisioned having been to the island many a time in the past.
Once again our stay at Mullhaven Cottage was incredible!! Karin and Neil are extremely accommodating and go out of their way to make you feel like family. We have traveled to Barbados for over 30 years and this is the place we want to return to year after year. Thank you Karin and Neil for once again providing us with a lovely home away from home.
The cottage has all you need for a home from home holiday, set in a very peaceful setting with beautiful gardens, lots of area's to sit and relax in, be it shade or sun with a lovely pool to cool off in. The bird life and the green monkey's that visit help make this an idyllic setting. Karin and Neil are friendly and helpful, this was our first visit and they made us feel as if we had known them for ever. We hope to return in the not to distant future.
This is the third time that my Wife Judy and I have stayed at Mullhaven Cottage, our stays are getting longer, four weeks on our recent visit. There are many reasons we enjoy Mullhaven, firstly the owners Karin and Neil are very friendly, make you more than welcome and help in every way possible. There is every facility available, we did not use the air conditioning though as the ceiling fans and natural air flow are more than adequate.
There are several beautiful beaches nearby, all within walking distance. Local buses are very regular, cheap and easy to use so a car is not essential. We walked into Speightstown, along the beach, visited the supermarket and got the bus back.
Options for eating out are plentiful, our favourites are Bombas (a short walk), Plates in Speightstown and Spegos Italian in Holetown. We did not eat out often though because we love being in the gardens, pool area and the outdoor eating decking, day or night. Our home from home, perfect.
This was our second stay at Mullhaven Cottage and found it to be better than ever. Once again Karin and Neil were extremely accommodating..wonderful hosts. Cannot wait to go back...wish our stay could have been longer.
Mullhaven Cottage is located at Mullins Road and it is max. 5 minutes to walk down to the beach.
