“Tranquil, incredible views property”

Turtle view was overall, an amazing experience!! The views are just incredible and photos do not do it justice. The house is large for a two bedroom, with ample deck spaces for taking in the view. The lush garden around the property is serene and beautiful. It is a bit remote as Antigua goes, so a car is highly recommended. It seems anything and everywhere is 45 mins drive away - even a larger/more modern food store. This place is very peaceful, which was exact to order for our trip, and we enjoyed it tremendously.

We'd love the owner to have a kayak available directly rather than book separately through one party or another - even without one, it was great to get in the water (which is sea grass and mangrove area, so not a lot to see snorkeling there, but refreshing tubing in the water none-the-less). We did see a couple of turtles from the decks on this property.

For beaches nearby - Half moon bay is really THE spot - long bay is much closer, and quite nice, but IMHO does not rate up with half moon bay. We highly recommend going to English harbour - really nice little port town. Admiral's inn has amazing atmosphere and views of the bay - so very worth dining there - lunch or dinner.

The house is coming of age to require investment on some maintenance - several things not working, like dish washer, microwave - and little things like fire starter flamer, various kitchen items, some windows and screens - but nothing to detract so much from the great experience.

Those who require air conditioning take note - none here on this property - ceiling fans do a fine job - we were not hot - but it was not that hot out either - we could see need for floor fan on really hot days/nights. I'd prefer screens on doors to allow opening them up for air flow. Air con is not critically needed here, but those who cannot live without it may care to know.

“Lovely stay.”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a lovely time at the villa which had everything we could need. The villa is in a beautiful location which is peaceful and having a car made visiting all areas of the island easy. Any queries were dealt with by Claire who was fantastic. There are plenty of places to visit and lovely restaurants and beaches within a reasonable car journey.

“Peace and Quiet with a Breathtaking View”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Spent a week in mid July 2016, had a great time, i'd recommend getting a rental car and explore the island. Pictures don't do the house justice, the view on the deck is just amazing, great breezes, great kitchen with all needed equipment. Great pool, with a great view. Everything was clean and tidy. The outlets are all American style (2 flat prongs and one pin), You don't hear the neighbors, all you hear is the birds and breeze during the day, and the frogs and breeze at night. Bathrooms are very nice with large showers with great water pressure and temperature range.

“Very nice villa with good facilities”
Reviewed 1 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Only draw back is the Villa is a bit isolated 40 min drive from any decent restraints but fine if you cater for yourself.
