The living area is well equipped with cable TV and a Bose wireless speaker. A fully equipped kitchen includes dishwasher, microwave and washing machine/tumble dryer. The master bedroom has direct access to the patio and pool. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned with en-suite bathrooms and plenty of storage. The guest bedroom has a queen bed which can be split into 2 twin beds as required. As well as its own private pool, there is a communal roof top pool with fantastic sea views which is shared by the residents within the building and can be used to swim, relax or enjoy a sun-downer. Beacon Hill holds an ideal, breezy position on the island's platinum coast with its secluded setting and 90 second walk (we've timed it) to Mullins Beach. The apartment has its own designated parking space (right outside the garden gate) and there is also ample visitors' parking. Emergency supplies (beer & ice cream) are available 24 hours a day at the nearby gas station (another 90 second walk - the other way). Cool Runnings is one of only 13 properties in this unique and perfectly located gated community consisting of 3 colonial style buildings. Note: All photographs taken between June 2017 and May 2018.

About the neighbourhood
Beacon Hill, Mullins is ideally located between Speightstown (3 minute drive) and Holetown (10 minute drive) where you will find dining, shopping, bars and lots of other activities. As our guest, you would have preferential seating with a nearby, well known restaurant providing you make your reservation at least 24 hours in advance.
Getting around
Car Hire: There are several hire car companies on the island although we have always found Stoutes Car Rental to be reliable and efficient with decent vehicles. As our guest, you would be entitled to a 10% discount. Buses: The yellow bus service is privately run and can go quite fast (!) The blue bus service is government run and is slightly more sedate. They cost a few dollars. The bus stop is near Mullins Beach Bar (only a short walk). Taxi: We can provide details of our preferred taxi firm although it is fairly easy to grab a cab should you need one during your visit. Fares can vary but are generally reasonable.
