About Sarah or Simon Ellis

We live in Cambridge and have two teenage children who keep us busy! We love to travel and have many friends and family around the world but Barbados always remains in our hearts as the best place in the world.

Sarah or Simon Ellis purchased this villa in 2005

Why Sarah or Simon Ellis chose Mullins

Barbados was the first place we visited when Simon actually managed to comletely switch off and relax. We love the people and the island and caught the bug so continued to return. Once we had our own family we decided it would be lovely and special to have a home from home in which the children felt safe and comfortable and we knew we could start relaxing straight away. This home is very special to us as it is very family orientated with it own large garden and pool and only a short walk to the beach and all its amenities. We knew this would appeal to others so decided to share it and we hope you agree.

What makes this villa unique

The house is located in a peaceful and tranquil setting away from the hustle and bustle of the main west coast but close enough to walk to one of the best beaches on the island, Mullins and only a mile from the upcoming Speightstown with all its bars and restaurants. A car is not necessary as there is an excellent bus service a few minutes walk away which can transport you up and down the West Coast.

Subject: Mullins Holiday/70th birthday

Dear Sarah

We have returned from our wonderful holiday and I must thank you for all your help which made things go so well. I was so beautifully relaxed by the end of our stay that we packed and left and it was only the next day when we arrived in Saint Lucia that I realised I had not written any comments in your visitors book!

I am so sorry about that as I wanted to express our pleasure at the holiday we had had and the fact that your staff there were so good! We also went on a cruise as you recommended but could not manage to make any contact with Calypso Cruises. We went with GoodTimes instead and they were excellent, taking enormous care of us, and ensuring we had a super experience. They picked us up by car and we went to Paynes Bay I think to set off but they dropped us off back at Mullins Bay which was very useful.

We got on really well with the people at Mullins Beach Bar, had two super meals at Juju’s, and two divine meals at The Fishpot amongst others that you had recommended. Our taxi driver to the Fishpot even sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to me in his taxi when we arrived home- a surreal experience that one!!!

The house was delightful, the piano, amazingly in such a warm climate, in tune, and Glenys provided us with a wonderful meal at the start. I am very impressed by the way you have everything organised. Andrew and Oneta were very helpful and kept a constant eye on things.

I do hope you will have some equally enjoyable holidays there yourselves soon!

With best wishes,

Feb 2016

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

This estate is a perfect vacation rental for groups ( family/friends). There is ample space and privacy with sufficient gathering spaces to come together . The proximity to Mullins Bay Beach makes "beaching" a breeze. Having the luxury of a pool on site was ideal, as the seas became quite turbulent during our stay, precluding swimming in the sea for several days.

The owners are very engaged in the process and experience of renting their home and provide detailed information and assistance, which really enhanced our stay.

The grounds are very picturesque and well kept. The monkeys really do come to visit the mango tree nearly everyday. The birds are plentiful and the foliage exotic.

Many thanks to Sarah, Simon, Andrew and Oneta for creating paradise found!

The place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely! Fantastic! That also describes Barbados! The house worked out great. Every bedroom has a bathroom with the exception of one. The back porch was where we lived. Have your coffee ready between 7:30 and 8:30 am to watch the monkeys play in the garden. Pool excellent to swim in after a day at the ocean. Beautiful yard. A nice walk to the beach, away from the 'noise'. Discovered the beach chairs a few days into our stay...make sure you look for them. Gibbs Beach worth the walk! Speightstown is a must. You can walk that too! Take the bus, it is a grand ride. Interact with the local people, they are very kind and helpful. Sarah was very helpful and even allowed us to stay a bit longer on check out day! Much appreciated! Try snorkelling everywhere but especially Almond Bay....Thanks Barbados for an eventful place to spend time with family and enjoy God's beautiful creation.

Loved all of it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family wants to say a big thank you to Sarah and Simon and the hard working staff! They made our trip wonderful. From the additional information like favorite restaurants, where to shop, even having a few items in the fridge for some of the family who came in very late. A clean lovely home that fit all of our needs.

Great Location. Great House and Great Staff

  • 5 of 5

Firstly thank you to Sarah and Simon for allowing us to rent your fantastic property. It very much feels like home from home.

16 of us travelled out to barbados and each one of us has had the most fantastic time with many people already planning return trips for next year.

We arrived to find the house in immaculate condition as well as the grounds. The children and adults if we're honest enjoyed the pool and watching the monkeys run through the grounds at night.

All in all it was a great holiday and we would 100% recommend this villa
