The beauty of Mullins Bay House is that it is wonderfully situated just a short walk from the Beach (5 mins at an amble pace), but also has the benefit of being positioned in a quiet road with a sizeable garden and a pool giving you the choice on any given day of pool, beach or both. The house itself is comfortably furnished and well equipped with everything that you would need for a family holiday. The bedroom I stayed in was light and airy with the benefit of a ceiling fan as well as air conditioning which allows for a very comfortable night without the chill of aircon. I had an ensuite that was fully functioning and I particularly loved the glass bricks that give it a lovely light in the evening sun. The house has a lot of indoor space that children might use more during the hottest parts of the day, but we found ourselves out on the deck most meal times enjoying the lovely views of Bourganvillia and Palms in the garden, and also monkeys which are most entertaining!
The staff are lovely and unobtrusive, great to have beds made and washing up done on the days they are in, also have a night of not cooking and have a meal bought in by Andrew, traditional Bajan food, delicious and you don't need to be in to receive it, we came back from Sundowners to find it waiting for us, fabulous.
Like the beach the bus stop is just a short walk and we used the yellow "Reggae" buses all of the time, you can travel in any direction from one end of the Island to the other for 2 dollars, and they are great fun and run very regularly, no timetable just go to a stop and wait, never for very long (all the bus stops are named after ladies) worth remembering which yours is!
Although Barbados is awash with high end restaurants we did not use these but spent most of our time at beach type bars that offer fantastic Rum Punches/Sours both are delicious, and simple meals of fresh fish which were very very good. Ju Ju's which is next to Lonestar became a favourite as it is "on" the beach, and The Little Bristol Bar in Speightstown offers live music on some nights, both perfect for Sundowners. Smokeys' fish is the best, and close by, and can be bought home and cooked on the BBQ and the supermarket in Hole Town has everything you need.
All in all, a wonderful stay and I would thoroughly recommend Mullins Bay House. If you had two families holidaying together the configuration of the house works brilliantly as there are two kitchens so you have your own space and privacy.
