Surrounded by mature Mahogany, Hibiscus and beautiful foliage, Palm Tree Villa nestles in a tranquil pot-pourri of tropical flowers, shrubs, coconut palms, sweet smelling frangipani, and birdsong, with six other properties. The garden is located on a small natural ridge enjoying cooling easterly breezes and overlooking Mullins,with a backdrop of the Caribbean Sea. Beautiful Mullins beach is at the bottom of Mullins Road just 900 metres away. Palm Tree Villa is a spacious, single storey, 2 bedroom villa, tastefully furnished to provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere during your stay. A raised pool with sun-deck is adjacent to the villa. All amenities (bank, supermarket restaurants, post office etc are available at Speightstown, just a short 3 minute car/bus journey away. Mullins Beach is popular with a beach restaurant and water sports, umbrellas and chair hire all available. A petrol station with 24 hour store is also opposite the beach. Gibbs Beach is located in the adjacent bay southwards and is very quiet with no amenities if this is your preference. Our Vila is Ideal for a family of four or up to four adults, or for a quiet break as a couple.
If you leave the villa and turn left up the hill you will drive through acres of Sugar Cane fields before reaching Highway 2A which connects to the whole of the island road network. There are wonderful views of the ocean from here in the daytime and fine sunsets when you are driving back down through the cane fields in the late afternoon. Turning left onto Highway 2A quickly takes yo to North Point, at the very top of the Island where there are spectacular cliff-top views of the rollers hitting the rocks below. From here your can continue clockwise travelling through wonderful scenery and eventually driving down the East Coast Road, which is an absolute must during your stay. This is the Atlantic coast, rugged and windy and oh so beautiful, completely different to the West Coast which enjoys the softer waves of the Caribbean Sea.
You can drive round the whole island easily in a day, but we would recommend that you to explore it over a few days. There are so many hidden beauty spots to discover and places that you just can't resist getting out of the car and enjoying for a few hours. Everywhere in Barbados is safe and the locals are very friendly. There are so many places of interest to enjoy and tourist attractions galore if you can stay for long enough!
If you head south from Mullins Beach, you quickly arrive at Holetown, which has a wonderful Duty Free Shopping Mall. It is a busy small town with a good variety of shops and restaurants, banks and supermarkets. A short journey onwards brings you to Sandy Lane the most expensive hotel on the island, where the rich and famous are spending their money. A lovely public beach here if you don't mind a walk to reach it. Still further south, you drive past The Cliff restaurant, a first class place for a meal if you don't mind a big bill at the end.
You then turn along the south coast and past the busy Cruise terminal and the Oval cricket ground before reaching the capital Bridgetown. On again past the airport and The Crane Resort, a luxury place to own a home in Barbados and then up the East Coast again towards Bathsheba, where the surfers show off the skills in The Soup Bowl!
Having explored the whole coastline, the next few spare days when you are not swimming it the warm oceans or lazing on the many beautiful beaches, is to discover the equally wonderful places in the interior. Gullies and Forests, Golf courses and Caves, wildlife parks potteries and Museums and so many beautiful views. Barbados is full of so many things to see and do. You will probably have to come back quite a few more times to see them all!
