The Saint Peter Parish region

St Peter is the next parish north of St James, on the most fashionable west coast of Barbados, The 8 mile Strip, on the west coast is made up of beaches etc in St James and St Peter, and this is where the top hotels such as Sandy Lane are siuated.

In Speightstown, 2 minutes north by car, there is scuba diving available with Reefers and Wreckers,, and a superb restaurant "Mangos by the sea", there is also a supermarket, and fresh fruit and veg stalls, and various shops etc.

On Mullins beach, you can relax, or hire a jet ski, and water skiing is available near by, there are also various other activities available if required.

For a fantastic day out, try one of the catamarans cruises, where they will take you to swim with the turtles, if you take the 5hour one, which includes lunch they provide you with food and as much drink as you like.

There are a number of them including our namesake " Cool Runnings" and El Tigre, etc, details of these are at the condo, or easily obtainable from any of the locals, there is a telephone book, and yellow pages in the apartment, all calls on the island from a landline tel no are free.

Holetown 10 minutes south is the second largest town on the island, and home to many fine restaurants and bars.

Eating out can be very reasonable, try Zachios, or Surfside, both are on the beach, and very good value, Tides, and The Mews are renowned, but a little more expensive, There are many others, as well as Banks, chatel house shops, and frankly anything you could need.


Mullins is situated on the Caribbean west coast of Barbados, known as the "Platinum coast", there are a number of beautiful beaches close to Cool Runnings, along this stretch of coast line.

The west coast is the side of the island where the water is calmest, and the area is home to many celebrities.and famous people from all walks of life, who often frequent Mullins Beach.

Speightstown is 2 minutes by car, and Holetown, which is the second largest town on the island is 10 minutes by car.

Barbados has a very good infrastructure , and supermarkets, doctors, and chemists are abundant close to Cool Runings, as are many world class restaurants, and golf courses.

Thank you for your 5 star review.

To clarify the situation re pay per view TV, this does not readily exist in Barbados, at least not in individual condo's and villas.

There is US cable, but when we trialled it, the feedback from UK guests was that it was rubbish, so we decided to provide a DVD playerinstead, for which DVD's can be rented in Speightstown, 1 Km away.

We also have Wi-Fi, via which UK TV can be downloaded to laptops.

Hopefully that will help prospective guests, thanks, John

Thank you for your 5 star review.

In regard to our beds, no one has ever suggested those were to firm before? We ordered them new on the island, and are the same as hotels use, being orthopaedic, and mid range firmness, I expect we sleep on firmer beds in the UK, than you guys in the U S A.

In regard to the condo's private poolside loungers, new cushions are actually on order, although nothing happens very fast in the Caribbean, which is really a major part of it's charm!

"Condo is kept at a very high specification and standard"

Had a very relaxing 9 days in a lovely garden apartment with pool.
John & Sheila who own it helped a great deal before we went.
Kerry the local manager was also very professional & helpful, as was the local cleaner.
Alough it's an apartment, it felt large and open, due to the garden & pool.
There is everything there for you, it's very well equipped, with large rooms, amazing outdoor space and spotlessly clean.
We would definately return.

Thanks guys, glad you had a great time
