Read reviews about our vacation home to rent in Barbados near to Mullins beach in St Peter.
We stayed in the ‘Ocean View’ apartment in early October 2013. It is a beautiful apartment in a fantastic location and we would have no hesitation recommending it to others. The booking process was very smooth. The owners Mark & Lisa are very organised and warmly professional, they responded quickly and helpfully to any questions. It is possible to send a shopping list for basic provisions prior to your arrival which was very much appreciated. It is also possible to arrange transfers from the airport with a very good local taxi firm. When we arrived at the apartment we were given a lovely welcome by Ann who manages the apartment locally. Ann gave us a tour and lots of tips of things to see and do in the area. The apartment itself is stunning! It is extremely luxurious and tastefully decorated throughout but it is also very homely and comfortable. We loved it! There are so many thoughtful and useful extra touches. It is incredibly well-equipped with everything you could possibly need. The apartment has the most beautiful large balcony with a view of the Ocean. The pool is super, clean and well maintained. We had it to ourselves for the whole week! Our 2 children loved it. There is a lovely gazebo for a leisurely lunch out of the sun. The apartment’s location is excellent, just across the road from fab Mullins Beach which has a great beach bar and watersports. To experience ‘Paradise’, take a picnic and walk a bit further round the corner to ‘Gibbes Beach’ - quiet but perfect. For snacks and drinks there is handy petrol station mini-mart very close to the apartment complex. Lovely Brenda kept the apartment immaculate and was a joy to chat to. The local buses were good fun, we went to Holetown where there are some great shops. Go to the Surfside beach bar there too. Good atmosphere! All in all we had a terrific holiday from start to finish. Many thanks to Mark, Lisa, Ann and Brenda. We really hope to return someday.
When you arrive at Ocean View you will realise that you have found a gem; more a home than a rented apartment.We were greeted by Ann Francis who introduced us thoroughly to the apartment and its facilities. She is a fund of local information and was most helpful during our stay. Brenda keeps the rooms immaculate. The highlight of the accommodation is undoubtedly the spacious terrace. Mornings and evenings spent there were a delight; the fan a comfort factor. The grounds and the large pool were always kept clean and tidy. The pool and the jacuzzi were ideal for cooling off after time at the beach or travelling Barbados.Mullins Beach, just a few yards from Beacon Hill apartments, is ideal for sun, sea and sand; we found the north end of the beach the best place for swimming. This was the first time we had visited Barbados in the “off” season (September) and, frankly, apart from a couple of showers we enjoyed great weather and the beach nearly every day - much quieter than we had encountered before. The Beach Bar is excellent and friendly. However, on our last evening we walked along to Bombas - which had just re-opened - a sea front bar / restaurant run by Wayne. Menu was good and food was excellent. He claims that the turtles, which you do see there, are his complementary staff for entertaining visitors. Altogether, Ocean View is a superbly comfortable, ideally located apartment for a holiday.
This is the second time I have stayed at Ocean View and it’s just perfect. The apartment is immaculate and is extremely well equipped, has wifi and also a docking station/speakers for your i-pod. I fell in love with the bed in the main bedroom, it was probably the most comfiest bed I have ever slept in. The balcony overlooks Mullins Beach and the pool area and gardens are just beautiful and extremely well maintained. Groceries were arranged for our arrival and an excellent taxi service was provided from the airport which we continued to use during the holiday. Sadly Mullins restaurant was closed whilst we were there but we then found Bombas, which provided perhaps an even better alternative and is an experience not to be missed! After all it’s not often you get to have lunch and see the baby turtles feeding just off shore! I would love to keep Ocean View a secret and not share it with anyone but sadly it’s not mine to keep. In short, I didn’t want to leave Ocean View or Barbados, the whole experience was just perfect.
Really I want to keep this place a secret so that I can guarantee a slot for me in the future but we had such a great time that we had to let others know.I don’t know about you but we always check the comments before we book online. Let me tell you that this apartment is immaculate, well equipped, has a fantastic view (the clue is in the title), and the service from the support team was first class. Nice touches such as having someone do your grocery shopping for you on your first day ready for you when you arrive really makes a difference. Plus things like beach towels meant we did not have to carry so much with us, and the wifi meant we could keep in touch.The pool was great to relax in as well, and the location is perfect on the island with very easy 2 minute walk from door to beach.We would have no hesitation in booking again, neither should you. We really could not have asked for more.
When not at the beautiful beach or quiet pool, we spent time relaxing on the veranda surrounded by palm trees, flowers, and birds with a sparkling view of the ocean. Wi-fi was available in and outdoors. The fridge ice crusher was very handy for our teenagers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We first fell in love with Ocean View 8 years ago and have been back every year at least once sometimes twice since. The apartments’ fabulous ambience is enhanced by the stunning views and amazing sunsets across Mullins bay. Benny and Marie have refurbished their fully equipped apartment to a very high standard ensuring any stay there is like a home from home.Visitors will get a very warm welcome from Ann as they arrive at Beacon Hill whilst the lovely maid Brenda, a big asset to the holiday always smiling and happy, will make sure all is ok day to day, we just love her.Looking forward to our next visit.
