About Sarah or Simon Ellis

We live in Cambridge UK and have two school age children who keep us busy! We love to travel and have many friends and family around the world but Barbados always remains in our hearts as the best place in the world.

Sarah or Simon Ellis purchased this villa in 2007

Why Sarah or Simon Ellis chose Mullins

Barbados was the first place we visited when Simon actually managed to completely switch off and relax. We love the people and the island and caught the bug so we continued to return.

Once we had our own family we decided it would be lovely and special to have a home from home in which the children felt safe and comfortable and we knew we could start relaxing straight away.

This home is very special to us as it is very family orientated with it own large garden and pool and only a short walk to the beach and all its amenities. We knew this would appeal to others so decided to share it. We hope you enjoy it.

What makes this villa unique

The house is located in a peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of the main west coast road but very close to Mullins Beach which is one of the best beaches on the island.

We are lucky to be visited most days by families of Green Monkeys which are unique to Barbados.

Speightstown which is the 2nd biggest town on the island with all its bars and restaurants is just over a mile from from Tree Tops. A car is not necessary as there is an excellent bus service 4 minutes walk away which takes you up and down the West Coast.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Your house was perfect. The garden and pool were very fine and we loved the surroundings with the trees and 'wild nature'.

We were especially excited to see the monkeys - also all the other animals in the garden.

The beach is just spectacular.

There is no doubt about it - we will be back - and we will definitely recommend your place to other Danish families.

Noella is very kind. Everything was clean and perfect and she was very friendly. We just loved her:)

Andrew did a very god job with the garden - and he was also a very nice guy.

You are lucky to have them!!

Airy, private, lovely

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tree Tops for a month in the early Spring of 2018. There were 6 adults. The property is delightful. We loved the back deck which is very private with comfortable places to sit and work. The wide, shady front veranda serves as a dining room and all around great place to be as well. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds are very comfortable and the living room is nicely decorated with bright couches and chairs. The whole house has a warm, holiday feel but we also felt at home as if it was ours. The pool is a huge bonus (well maintained) and towered over by a magnificent Traveling Palm. We thoroughly enjoyed all the birds and the family of monkeys that made its way daily around the perimeter of the property. We had very minor things go wrong while we were there (a light bulb too high to reach, a broken lounge chair) and these were immediately taken care of by the great staff. There are two beaches within easy walking distance. We did not rent a car but used the buses to go up and down the coast from the Fish Pot restaurant to Bridgetown. Usually we made a daily trip into Speightstown for a coffee, shopping or dinner.

It was hard to leave Tree Tops and we would certainly go back!

We loved our stay at Tree Tops, watching the monkeys in the garden, having a lovely pool to ourselves and easy access to the buses which took us up and down the coast and the best beach ever at Gibbs.

Thank you to Simon and Sarah for all the information, it was all top notch. Also thanks to Andrew who cooked us a fantastic Bajan meal during our stay

Perfect Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was absolutely amazing. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in. It was clean, airy and inviting. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was a great location and only a 5 min walk to the beach. Tree Tops had everything you needed to feel comfortable. Thank you Sarah, Simon and all of the Tree Tops staff for your kindness and your help. I will definitely recommend this villa for a holiday stay!

Family of three

Fantastic holiday to barbados

  • 5 of 5

This holiday home was just perfect for our family of three. The home is absolutely beautiful and we loved the space and quiet this place gave us. We loved coming back for lunch and having a bbq and enjoying the tranquillity before heading out for the afternoon. The garden and the flowers and trees were beautiful. Our daughter particularly enjoyed the regular visit from the monkeys in the afternoon as they trooped across the garden. We felt like we were in a nature reserve!

We celebrated our marriage whilst we were here and it was the perfect place. Claudette looked after the house well and was lovely to chat to and decorated our room when we got back in the evening after our wedding, which was a lovely touch.

This place was in the perfect location. We often went down to Gibbs beach to watch the sunset whilst our daughter snorkelling in the sea.

The home was clean and we had a lovely meal waiting for us when we arrived from glynnis, along with some groceries to keep us going. Sarah and Simon were prompt with questions whilst booking and also checked in with us whilst we were there to check all okay.

We hired the Suzuki and this was great for exploring the island. Locally we loved ju ju beach bar and the local fish from Smokey at the fish market.

It truely was a wonderful holiday with many happy memories and would recommend Tree Tops.

Also if you are looking to get married Elope Barbados were fantastic and plan beautiful weddings.

A great holiday and so glad we chose this place to stay. Wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.

Idyllic House Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Treetops for ten days with my husband and a friend and we all three loved it. The house is designed so that it is full of light but gets no direct sunlight and is open on all sides with breezes blowing through, so it remains cool. The grounds, pool and surrounding area are beautiful. The neighborhood is quiet and It's a short and pleasant walk to a lovely beach. We tried many of the restaurants recommended by Sarah and Simon, but the best food we had by far was the meal Andrew cooked for us. We didn't rent a car and found the local busses convenient and fun. The wonderful staff, Claudette and Andrew, took care of all our needs.

After visiting other parts of the island I would say if you are looking for peace, tranquility and proximity to a good swimming beach, you can't do better than Mullins and Treetops.
