“Monkeys in the garden”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in February 2018
1
person found this review helpful

We have been travelling to Barbados since 1984 and have stayed at Cool Runnings many times. We find this a great location as it is within easy walking distance to Mullins Beach and just a short distance from Speightstown. The property was recently updated and well cared for. June, the housekeeper, is a gem and does an excellent job. We particularly enjoy the garden, especially when we are there at a time when there is fruit on the palm trees which attracts a troop of monkeys that comes every early morning to breakfast and entertain. Thanks, Michelle, for sharing this beautiful property.

“Fantastic Christmas break at this wonderful 5* Caribbean home”
Reviewed 31 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We arrive at good property 2 days before Christmas and oh my! The best Christmas present we could of hope for This stunning property!

We was met at the property late in the evening after a long flight by Tavia from the villa management team chestersons. She was very welcoming & thorough showing us around the property.

Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful Apartment, tastefully furnished with everything you could hope for in a holiday home. Kitchen fully stocked with every utensils.
The pool area was amazing, perfectly sized pool & gorgeous comfortable lounge furniture with a very well kept garden.

Cool runnings is Literally 30seconds from the stunning Mullins beach. Where you can sit and enjoy lovely food and great cocktails. Also June the cleaner told us about a lunch mini van that parks up along side the petrol station (3mins walk from apartment) and serves delicious Cheap local Caribbean food daily from 12-2pm. You must try!

We hired a car for half our stay to get our bearings then used the reggae reggae buses there after. You can easily access buses (every 2mins) on the road right out side the gates.
10mins to Holetown where there’s many shops, large supermarket, many restaurants & bars.
5mins In the other direction to spieghtstown tiny little village with small supermarket & cute restaurants.
This apartment couldn’t be in a better location.

Our favorite Resturant was lone star definitely not one to miss. We spent lots of days on Santi beach (Cute little beach) right next to the lone star.

ABSOLUTELY FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS PLACE. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE RETURNING TO COOL RUNNINGS AGAIN.

Thank you Michelle & Simon for letting us share your gorgeous home.

“Fabulous Property in a Great Location”
Reviewed 5 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

As one reviewer has already said - the photos really don’t do this property justice. The terrace area feels bigger and the attention to detail really isn’t captured in the photos - from the hairdryer in a sequinned basket to the lighting on the terrace. There was even a pirate rubber duck in my bathroom!

From the very start we were treated as valued guests; when we arrived at the property a member of the management company was there to welcome us. They had opened up the property and showed us around so that we knew how everything worked. Not at all like most rental places where you have to find the key, open up the property and work out where everything is. June, the Housekeeper, arrived twice a week and was great. We ate out a few times: Lone Star, The Cliff etc but it was also really lovely to have a high quality fully equipped kitchen where we could prepare dinner. We actually spent a lot of our evenings just sitting on the terrace and relaxing.

The location is fantastic - approx 1 minute walk to Mullins beach where the beach bar is great and has live music on Sunday evenings. You can also get to Holetown and Speightstown really easily too where there are lots of shops and restaurants.

Barbados is great and staying at Cool Runnings made it perfect. We’re already planning our next trip!!

“Fabulous stay - great location”
Reviewed 23 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We had a fabulous stay at Cool Running, Mullins Beach.  

The best part - 6 x 15 foot pool in quiet / private garden.  Also, the condo is really close to Mullins - just 3 steps outside gate of condo complex and cross the 2 lane road to the Beach. Here I rented a jet ski with driver to take me to 5 sunken ships for my own private snorkel trip.  

Food and drinks at Mullins Beach is great - fish and chips and fish tacos were my favorite - oh and cheap beer and great rum punch.  Another day, the 4 of us rented a boat with driver to take us to snorkel with the turtles and water ski.  

The drive to North Point is very nice - not much development and nice rugged coastline.  Supermarkets are close to the condo - 8 min North or South. Take away food is accessible - Chinese and Bajan walking distance North of Mullins Beach and KFC a short drive.  Two minutes walk to small store at gas station with all the basics. Too bad that ATM was broken the week we were there.  

Local restaurants like Lone Star and Cliff were great but we also enjoyed cooking in a few nights.  The full kitchen gave us flexibility.

The Cool Runnings home has 2.5 bathrooms, two large bedrooms, fans and air conditioning work great but we tried to limit impact to environment.    

The property is well maintained and June, the housekeeper, visited twice a week. We felt very comfortable and not like tourists; highly recommended and we hope to book Cool Runnings again.
