As well as its own private pool, there is a communal roof top pool and bar 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
Mullins is ideally located between Speightstown (3 minute drive) and Holetown (10 minute drive). We will provide you with an information pack relating to the specific local area and island although I am told, by our local friends, that this is probably one of the best spots on the island for easy access to dining, shopping, the beach and lots of other activities. Also, 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.
