There are a lot of negatives I could trump up. The hot water is limited each day, there are small bugs in the place, the pool water is cold (not heated) and often needs to be cleaned by guests, the driveway is undone etc but I really liked DCP for the price of $180 with tax. Its in a great...

Thank you very much for your review. We aim to please all our guests but not always possible... As part of our environment initiative the hot water is totally heated from solar panels and we store adequate hot water for each Cottage. We have never advertised the swimming pool as being heated due to the ambient air temperature and have...

We booked a trip to Antigua at the very last minute so our choices for accommodations were limited. We felt lucky to get 5 nights here; due to the last-minute nature of our booking them, we actually had to move between three separate cottages over 5 nights, which was not a problem at all - we were grateful to get...

As a mid twenties female I stayed here on my own. The apartment was gorgeous and spacious with everything I needed and more. The air-con was amazing and a welcome relief after staying with family for a few days in unbearable heat in a non-air-conditioned house! I really do look forward to staying here again - I'm already planning to...

I stayed here with my family for 10 days this summer. It was recommended to us by our local friends. The price was right so it was an easy choice. Overall, the place was "just okay" IMO. Apartment style units, two floors, circled around a basic pool. The units were basic, clean, most stuff in working order. After a day...

Had a wonderful time renting a cottage for 4 nights in May 2015. During the low season most of the cottages seem to be vacant so the place feels very private. Often we get the pool to ourselves. The few neighbours we did have are all friendly and quiet. Bathroom is clean, bed is comfortable, air conditioning is a huge...

Nice cosy hotel with view over the sea from poolside. Small and nice hotell with good staff. Well furnished rooms. We had a room just by the poolside and it was great. Just a short walk down the road to the fantastic Dickenson bay.

The cottages are set on the hill above Dickenson Bay with stunning views towards the sea. There are around 16 cottages on site making the accommodation quiet, private and perfect for us as a group of 10 people wishing to stay together in a small complex. The pool area is lovely, with a gas BBQ available which we used often...

This is a hidden gem on the island of Antigua. A small cluster of apartment-style cottages around a small pool just five minutes walk from a superb beach colonised by significantly more expensive properties such as the ubiquitous Sandals. My apartment had a galleried bedroom and bathroom overlooking a small living and kitchen area. There's everything you need to self-cater...

One of the recurring issues is retail/food provision. With the new management at ''Nigel's Kitchen'' Restaurant across the road we are currently negotiating special...

Our first contact was with Karimah via email when I asked her if she could organise a taxi transfer from the airport to the property.

Dear Guest Thank you so much for your review. It is pleasing for the staff to be mentioned in reviews; the majority have been with the cottages since we opened the doors 22 Years ago. They are committed and a very important part of our business. I hope the memories of your stay and the island bring you back soon....
