About the property

3 Bed Townhouse Pool Jacuzzi Minutes from Mullins Beach & Lots of Extras

see our info site here















Slip into the Bajan groove at One Battaleys Mews, a Colonial style townhouse with contemporary décor and high-tech comfort just two minutes walk from an archetypal white sandy Caribbean beach.

Though within easy reach of the restaurants, shops, and entertainment of the West Coast of the island, Battaleys Mews feels private and tranquil, tucked into a quiet neighbourhood in the parish of St. Peter. Surrounded by exotic gardens, the mews are filled with indigenous plants and a few minutes’ walk is one of the best-known beaches on Barbados, namely Mullins, with the Mullins Beach Bar & Grill, water sports, sunbed hire and a small beach shack with various items for sale.

One of a handful of family-owned properties within the estate, this three-bedroom house with its recently refurbished rooms keeps a ‘home from home’ feel, while staying contemporary and practical.

Alongside the well-equipped kitchen, the open-plan living area with contemporary seating and large dining table, the house has a terrace with a gas BBQ, seating, and ambient lighting alongside the Jacuzzi. Parking for two or three cars is in the driveway.

The main bedroom has a large en-suite with bath and walk-in shower and balcony seating while the second and third bedrooms share a shower bathroom. All bedrooms have sensor controlled air conditioning and all the windows have plantation blinds and mosquito grills.

The mews are managed by Sotheby's Barbados and there is a security and administration office within the clubhouse. Our housekeeper will look after you during your stay and for any trips or excursions, babysitting, chef or whatever you may need, Sotheby's can recommend and help our guests.

Barbados, a little paradise approximately 21 by 14 miles, bursts with the charm and hospitality typical of many Caribbean islands, combined with an unmatched natural beauty. Underneath the old-world allure lies a modern infrastructure that includes internationally recognised restaurants, luxury retail brands, world-class banking facilities, high-speed internet, and global television. But it’s the warmth and friendliness of the Barbadian people that lures visitors back to the island year after year.

Barbados is relatively flat, with a diverse countryside and stunning beaches. Coral stone cliffs of 50 to 100 feet rise and fall along the Eastern coastline, separated by small sandy beaches and bays. The South and West Coasts have the famous sandy beaches and the calm, turquoise Caribbean waters. The interior of the island ranges from lush gullies to rolling hills to vast cane fields and plantations.

The climate is warm and sunny all year, with an average daytime temperature ranging from 75 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit (24 to 30 degrees Celsius).

Barbados is the most easterly of the Caribbean islands, spared by most weather systems. The local currency is the Barbadian Dollar, tied to the US Dollar at a fixed rate of approximately 2:1.

Daily flights arrive at Grantley Adams International Airport from North America, the Caribbean, UK and Europe:

There can be few more evocative images than the juxtaposition of lush green gardens against gorgeous ocean hues and if you're looking to sample the best of them then head to Barbados, and you won't be disappointed.

A relatively small island, stretching for just over 20 miles in length, with some superb locations, pitted against white sand backdrops you'll discover endless ways to spend your time as the sun continues to shine.

Whatever you're into sports, relaxation or nature, Barbados has got the lot and if you're looking for a few more temptations then head to our info site at www.onebattaleysmews.com

Barbados is arguably the most delightful host to any democracy on Earth – a place where local fishers sit shoulder to shoulder with international celebrities in rum bars built on stilts overlooking palm-fringed bays, an isle where the great outdoor happy-go-lucky Caribbean culture is celebrated communally by rich and poor alike.

Travel by powerboat down the Platinum Coast and the local skipper will point out villas and mansions in a litany that sounds like contents listing for Hello magazine!

Barbados, like a football match, is a game of two halves. This odd statement is highly relevant to sightseers going around the island because you can divide the place east and west. The West Coast has fabulous beaches and safe, calm seas and fairly built up as a result. One of the best ways of seeing it and learning all about those famous celebrities is to cruise up the coast in one of the many charter boats.

Enjoy a day out in a sleek catamaran, and you will find a happy crew ready to keep you wined and dined for hours, stopping here and there to dive over reefs and meet gentle giant sea turtles.

The East, or Atlantic Coast, is breezy and beautifully wild. Its rugged terrain sweeps down to miles of untouched, windswept beaches bordered by rough seas.

Swimming here not recommended, but walking is. There's even a disused railway line that takes you along the dramatic cliff-tops safely away from traffic. Opened in 1881 and closed in 1937, it makes for an ideal hiking route

You will be amazed to discover just how empty the East Coast is. It is no exaggeration to say that the 20-mile long littoral is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world – but you can walk an hour or two without seeing a soul.

Tucked just behind the booming beach in mainly green, hilly and scenic bit of the island is the remote Shorey Village, where you can visit Aunt Benn's Bar – the aunt involved being the female relation of the British boxer Nigel Benn.

What you get is a concrete shack boasting a counter and two homemade stools, but this belies the great charm of the place, which seems fossilised in the steamy sugary syrup of the Bajan rural idyll. Hear local men talking in a pure Somerset dialect – albeit one with a touch of Africa about its vowels!

Further down the coast is the beautiful and peaceful Bathsheba, where a magnificent church on a hill looks down upon a windswept tropical beach-fringed paradise – and many have wanted to stay here forever, tempted to make permanent retirement plans!

From here, head west across the widest part of the island to descend the how hills to the capital, with its famous cricket stadium – host of 20-20 matches, a heady experience.

Bridgetown boasts an incredible array of shops as well as some excellent restaurants, as talked about in our other pages.

The country's culture is a lovely blend of English and West African traditions – a primarily Christian ethos punctuated by pockets of Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and the rapidly growing Rastafarianism.

This peaceful multicultural society is one of the real charms of Barbados; the people are kind, helpful and open.

Platinum Coast Beaches

Named mainly due to the shimmering sand, however, in recent years, more indicative of the wealthy and famous mega-rich who call it home, the Platinum Coast is Barbados's main stretch of shoreline. Located to the west of the island, just to the north of Holetown, this is an exquisitely beautiful area and well worth a visit even if you're only lingering to see if you can catch sight of a reclusive billionaire playboy or two.

Surfing the Soup Bowl

The east coast of Barbados is fast becoming a mecca for surfers and bodyboarders who are 'in the know' thanks to the sumptuous Soup Bowl swells and the fact that nobody else gives the east side the time of day.

Yes, it's slightly more rugged but slightly less beautiful? No way, and if you're looking for a break from the luxury hotels and villas around the the Platinum Coast, then take a trip to the wild side for an altogether more regular trip and stay in Bathsheba for a unique experience

Kensington Oval

Located just to the west of the island's capital city of Bridgetown, the Kensington Oval has been the stomping ground of many of Barbados's sporting heroes and a visit here will allow you under the skin of a game that is deep-rooted in the hearts and minds of the locals..

Welchman Hall Gully

Calling all hikers – get your boots on because right here is where you start walking!

The gully is intrinsically beautiful and fresh feel in managing to combine tropical wilderness with walking trails that make for a truly magical experience and a must for amateur botanists.

Harrison’s Cave

Dripping limestone and the cold, fresh air of an underground cave is what the doctor ordered on a hot day in Barbados and if you're into stalactites and stalagmites then welcome to heaven.Located in the parish of St. Thomas, in central Barbados

Dive to the SS Stavronikita

There are a fair few diving and snorkelling spots in Barbados however, once you've swum down to the depths of the SS Stavronikita you probably won't want to go anywhere else.

One of the island's most popular dive spots and perfect for underwater adventurers

Andromeda Botanic Gardens

This beautiful six-acre active tropical paradise can in St. Joseph's Parish has stunning views of the island's wilder east coast.

Paul purchased this house in 2006

Why Paul chose Barbados

The house resides on a beautifully built private gated estate with security yet retains a relaxed family feel.

We decided to refurbish and not as part of the typical feel of other homes on the island and in added most of the things a guest could need or want while staying away from home. We chose relaxing and contemporary furniture while adding light control to the overbright spotlights and extending the wifi. We added beach towels, robes, hairdryers and much more besides.The kitchen is equipped to allow guests to cater for any type meal or party while adding high chairs and toddler-friendly items for our guests as well the members of our family who has younger children. We also installed Bose Bluetooth hi-fi to allow easy use of iPods smartphones and the like for music. There is a spare HD screen for use with a games console or an iPad or laptop with an Apple TV box to watch movies and NetFlix. The community at Battaleys has a relaxed feel even when fully occupied, and the shared pool and tennis courts never seem to feel overrun or too busy. Mullins beach is minutes away from the house, and we have two folding beach beds if a guest doesn't wish to rent one. We have a gas BBQ on the rear patio as well as a folding, retractable clothes line to work in conjunction with the washer, and all done to make your stay a relaxing home from home.

What makes this house unique

Family and friends use the house, so care has been taken to decorate and furnish the house with high-quality appliances and a relaxing non-hotel feel. With the aforementioned extras and everything in the kitchen and bedrooms you would like to have to hand, we did want to offer more than a generic standard rental unit. We are always available to help with anything, either personally, or we pass on our guest’s detail with their consent to the concierge service at the local agents we employ to look after our house. They can advise; book and barter for nearly anything to do on the island but guests are in no way obligated, and we can also offer impartial advice and ideas with regards costs.

Barbados is arguably the most beautiful host to any democracy on Earth – a place where local fishers sit shoulder to shoulder with international celebrities in rum bars built on stilts overlooking palm-fringed bays, an isle where the great outdoor happy-go-lucky Caribbean culture is celebrated communally by rich and poor alike.

Tucked between the multi-million-dollar homes belonging to the rich and famous you will see the fish markets, shacks and rum bars that add the vital and wholly enjoyable touch of local colour, without which any location soon becomes bland and wearisome

At Speightstown, north of Battaleys, all of this can be seen and felt, but of course, a trip around the entire 166 squares miles is a must

Barbados, like football, is a game of two halves. This statement is highly relevant to sightseers going around the island east to west, north to south!

Fabulous Holiday Home in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely 3 bed house - 4 adults - for two weeks. The accommodation is great and the complex quiet but very smart. There is a shared pool with a day time bar available for all guests/residents.

There is a great tennis court and small gym (treadmill/stepper/Mats/Weights)

The staff are so friendly and there is 24/7 security if needed.

The house is privately owned but there is a local management company available for any problems.

We did have a few and apart from the broken microwave - which was not fixed - all the other issues were resolved.

The location is great for exploring Speightstown and the Northern end of the island and only 10 mins drive from Holetown.

There are a few beach bars serving drinks and great food within walking distance.

You need a car to get anywhere else though - unless you reply on the buses.

The complex is under administration but that didnt' seem to be a problem for us and there were a few other holiday makers staying in various houses.

We liked the peace and quiet!

Would go back tomorrow

Steps from terrific Platinum Coast beach....wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely beach house, minutes away from one of the pretty platinum coast beaches. The house was nicely furnished, three bathrooms (one huge ensuite in mbdrm) comfortable place to relax after a day of hiking, snorkelling, diving, etc.

Well-appointed kitchen made cooking and bbq on the patio easy and delicious (almost better than retaurants....every Bajan parish has a fresh fish market....perfect to grill at home!).

Our host treated us like gold.....and we had house service twice (in the week).

All in all a wonderful place to stay, especially with kids, as there is beautiful communal pool on site.

Stayed January 2017, travelled with family and friends

Beautiful, modern, well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we knew that we'd picked the right base for our holiday. We were originally thinking of a beach side property, but once we saw One Battaleys Mews, with the luxurious accommodation and extra creature comforts: pool, plunge pool, 3 double bedrooms, air con, maid service, kitchen, lounge, dining room, etc, there was only one winner.

Paul has always been very easy to deal with and responds quickly to emails and we found all of the staff at Battaleys Mews to be very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

We'd definitely book again.

Thanks from Rich, Jayne, Rebecca and Connor

Great place to stay.

Nice, spacious and quiet place, walking distance from Mullins beach.

Jacuzzi in the patio and swimming pool in the compound.

A/C only upstairs, but still manageable.
