We had a wonderful week at Blue Moon Villas, we rented both of them, they are both really lovely, clean and spacious with everything you need supplied.
The beach is great and only a 2 minute stroll down the hill. We would recommend hiring a car to get about easily, English Harbour is just around the corner with all the restaurants you would need.
Shonnie and Michael are very friendly and helpful hosts.
Enjoy the wonderful views and have a great holiday at Blue Moon.

“Perfect balance of beauty, beach, comfort and food!”

My wife and I spent four beautiful days in one of Blue Moon Antigua's beautiful villas. Our villa was charming, with all the amenities you would want and offered the most spectacular view of the bay any and the southwest exposure our sunsets were beyond compare! Galleon Beach is quiet and clean and provides easy access to great restaurants in nearby English Harbor and Falmouth Harbor. If you want privacy, comfort, beauty and relaxation, then you need to check out Blue Moon Antigua. Galleon Beach is just down the hill and offers only one place to eat, but you can take a water taxi over to English Harbor.

“Amazing location, villa and view that is to DIE for!!!”

What can I say that hasn't already been said. Blue Moon villas are wonderful! The first thing you will notice are the incredible views from your verandah. Most husband and I are go, go, go types of people and we can honestly say that we would have been happy if we had never been allowed to leave the verandah. We made a sugar water concoction and the little birds happily cover over to our table and had breakfast with us each morning. The outdoor shower is spectacular...showering oustide under the stars is magical! An image we won't soon forget.

The unit has everything you could want...2 coolers, blender, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, small refrigerator, etc. We stopped off at Gourmet Basket which is located right outside the airport and stocked up on cereal, milk, juice, lunchmeat, cheese and then supplemented with yogurt (Yao is made on the island and is delish!!) and fruit from Bailey's. We made our breakfast each morning and then packed lunches and brought it in the cooler to the various beaches around the island.

Dinners out were wonderful. I highly recommend Abracadabra for authentic Italian, OJs for the whole red snapper and sunset (saw a green flash!), and Trappa's (MAKE A RESERVATION). Very reasonably priced and delicious.

Mershon is incredibly helpful and was able to book us on the EcoTour through Antigua Adventures that takes you on a boat tour around the island and allows you to climb Hell's Gate (thrill seekers only!), snorkeling, a little hiking, etc. It was a wonderful day. Mershon is always available (their house is located right below the villas) to answer questions, provide beach and/or restaurant suggestions and help with any other detail.

Don't look any further. There is no way you would be disappointed at Blue Moon. If it's available, book it now!!

“Blue Moon Villas - The bar has been set high!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Blue Moon Villas, at Galleon Beach, sets the bar very high for any visit to Antigua or other islands in the Caribbean!
If you are a "tourist" looking for that all inclusive resort, where you never leave the property, need a swim up bar, or have liquor taps in your room, then this is not the place for you. No Carnival Cruise crowd here, but you'll be amongst the international yacht-set where you'll be hearing accents from the U.K., Australia, France, Italy, and some German and Canadian...Americans are not as prevalent. If you are a "true traveler", that wants to feel the real pace of Antigua, then make Blue Moon Villas your home base! This is an ideal location for couples looking for peace, quiet and romance.

There are only two villas on the property, so we never felt crowded. Each villa is identical and is perfectly equipped with a full kitchen, living area, king-sized bed, and private veranda with a view that you'll NEVER get tired of. The outdoor shower is divine! Galleon Beach feels like an exclusive, tucked away, sleepy community. There is a gate that is manned after 6pm and all night, which gives an extra sense of exclusiveness without any pretentiousness. Galleon Beach is conveniently located within a five minute drive to several key locations including Falmouth Harbor (restaurants, nightlife, shopping) and Shirley's Heights (best view on the island). Shonnie and Michael, were the the most wonderful hosts and recommended restaurants and activities, that hit it out of the park every single time.

We stayed a week and rented a 4x4 ($55 a day from Lion's Car Rental). As Americans, driving on the left is not the tough part, but the roads can be. So be alert, since secondary roads can be very gravely - get a 4x4. However, the Antiguans, are the nicest people, even as drivers!

Tips: Go to the local market (Bailey's), prepare breakfasts (local in season fruit is the best). Hit up Carib Roasters for coffee (make your own as a cup of coffee/iced coffee is pretty pricey, no Starbucks here!). The kitchen has a blender, so pick up a bottle of English Harbour aged rum ($8 USD), fruit juices/ coconut water, and make your own rummy concoction, while watching the sunset from your veranda. Have a marina or beach-side lunch, but definitely hit Falmouth Harbor for great dinners. Restaurants are usually run by ex-pat Italians, French or Germans and serve a high quality meal that is reasonable and not overpriced. Finding local Antiguan food is harder to find, but definitely pick up local favorite -Susie's Hot Sauce. Hob knob with the yacht set at Cloggy's for a night cap! Most establishments take USD and the East Caribbean currency is fixed to the USD rate.

So go off and have your own Antiguan adventure! Find those secret beaches where you will be the only ones there, or stop and have a Carib beer at a local beach-side establishment. Remember to smile and wave to everyone, there's no reason not to.

We just returned from an amazing stay at Blue Moon and would highly recommend both the property and the hosts! The villas are beautiful and contain everything you could want for a relaxing stay. The reviews we read were right on point and I could repeat them all--gorgeous location, beautifully maintained villa, and stunning location!

Shonnie and Michael, the hosts of the villas, were so kind and not in the slightest intrusive. They were eager to make sure we understood and enjoyed Antigua and Blue Moon. Gracious and kind, they met our every need and clearly work so hard to make sure the property meets your expectations.

Back at work now for several days, and both my husband and I are keeping a picture of the calmness and beauty of Blue Moon with us!
