Overview

Location, location, location - Our property is situated on Antigua's Dickenson Bay, voted 4th best beach in the Caribbean. Holiday on the same stretch of perfect white sand as Sandals Grande Antigua, except at a fraction of the cost and with loads more privacy.

Your view of the Caribbean is simply breathtaking, second to none. Dont just take our word for it, we have had over 35 glowing reviews from more than 80 private rentals over the last 6 years.

This is THE place to stay to enjoy your own special comforts, your room even enjoys Wi-Fi connectivity to cater for all of your multimedia requirements.

To convey the Antigua WOW Factor we have specially commissioned a video postcard to share with you your holiday experience.

Our complex consists of 98 privately owned apartments adjoining the tranquil waters of the Caribbean Sea on the West Coast of Antigua.

Nestled amongst palm trees and well maintained gardens our air conditioned 1 bed apartment is enhanced by contemporary furnishings throughout and can sleep up to 4 people - with the versatility of a no hassle/easy to fold away double sofa bed with storage space. In light of some recent comments we'd like to inform any potential new booking inquiries that we have recently upgraded the following; new mattress, new bed linen and soft furnishings to the main bedroom; new shower facility and a barbeque added on the balcony.

Your accommodation benefits from daily maid service and enjoys an unparalleled front line beach location with its own private balcony just 20 meters from the powder white sands of Dickenson Bay.

Car hire would definitely be a luxury option as the complex has everything within easy reach including the First Choice supermarket within 20 mins walk or a short taxi journey. Perfect for families and couples alike you can relax and watch loved ones from your balcony safe in the knowledge that there is a sectioned off swimming area with a gently sloping sea bed.

Dickenson Bay is home to the famous Sandals Grande Antigua & Rex Halcyon resorts where you can sample pay as you go access to the varied restaurants, bars and entertainment of these expensive hotels, whilst maintaining the privacy and freedom of choice of your own luxury accommodation at a fraction of the cost.

Relax in the knowledge that virtually everything is catered for within your resort - a taxi to the airport is a set fee of only 15 GBP - 20 dollars and local buses (number 50) run regularly into the capital St Johns so car hire is a luxury option.

Complimentary bath robes, beach towels and a selection of bathroom accessories are provided as part of your package as well as your own dedicated free internet access in your room and throughout the complex for all your multimedia requirments.

Spend your days sipping cocktails around the landscaped pool area - which also benefits from free wireless internet - or simply soak up the sun on the one of the complimentary loungers at the beach or pool.

Guests will be pleased to know that beach trading is strictly monitored and is restricted to just a few carefully selected local craftsmen aimed at enhancing your holiday experience.

In the evenings watch the sunset on your private balcony - mentioned in our reviews as the least overlooked on the whole resort - or simply walk glass of wine in hand the few steps to the beach to soak up the beautiful surroundings. Enjoy a gentle stroll through the lush tropical gardens for a romantic meal in either of the 2 beachfront restaurants that adjoin the resort at either end - Coconut Grove or Peppers & Lime.

Alternatively make the short moonlight walk along the beach to explore the impressive Warri Pier or Lobster Shack restaurants. Opulent entertainment can also be found in the Grand Casino and Piano Bar, just a 2 min walk away, which regularly hosts themed nights and provides ample opportunity to dress up.

For the more adventurous there is a whole host of fun packed excursions that include swim with dolphins, horse riding, jeep safari, yacht charters, helicopter tours and even a rainforest canopy tour which consists of rope bridges and zip wires! To ensure your holiday is completely hassle free these can be arranged for you by guests services within the reception area at Antigua Village where you will be picked up and dropped off for your days fun in the sun.

Stayed Saturday 17 January 2015 with Family
The room had a beautiful balcony and view that you could not enjoy, because it is the only unit that does not have a table and chair to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. We were told it broke a long time ago, never to be replaced. So the balcony was never used. The advertisement states it can hold 4 people using a pull out couch. This pull out couch is so broken that you can't even use it on the floor. Communication with the owner is virtually non-exsistent. We spoke once in the beginning of February, never to be heard from again. Very disappointed and not worth the money.

The one bedroom suite was very clean and well stocked with basic necessities. Being Ocean front was amazing, the beach and water was like no other. The pool and grounds was super clean and well groomed. The staff was very helpful, friendly and willing to accommodate any requests we had. There were many dining options within walking distance and all were very good. If any negatives I would say that the sofa bed was not very comfortable and the suite could use a little updating. The drapes would be of better use in the front room if they were black out as it gets very bright and hot very early. All in all the value was very good for the cost of the room and we had a super great time. Nothing to do with the room but use bug spray when outside, you cant see them but you will feel the mosquito and sand fly bites for days afterward.

We have just ended a wonderful family vacation at this property and I highly recommend it. It could be the absolute best place to stay on all of the island for both its location and amenities. The size of the unit was perfect for 2 adults 2 kids (ages 9 and 11). The ocean is really only 20m away and the unit has a perfect view. The kids could go down to the beach on their own and we could watch them from above. The front desk and daily maid service were also very helpful, though there was some variation in friendliness. The property is exactly as described in the advert with a few exceptions: No patio set on the balcony but there were two beach lounge chairs. Horseback riding is $50 pp. The nearby childrens mini golf is in severe disrepair and should not be considered an attraction. The kitchen was well equipped but the knives were very dull and could use a sharpener. I would like to add the following tips for the most enjoyment. If renting a car, use Oakland Car Rental. They will deliver and retrieve the car right from Antigua Village. Not only is the supermarket 5 minutes away by car, there are two local produce vendors who sell fruit and vegetables right in the Antigua Village parking lot (Cynthia and Roberta). If you are sensitive to noise you may want to bring earplugs for the mornings when the cacaphhony of surf, breeze, rain and birds is at a crescendo. We also recommend sailing on the Wadadli Cats catamaran. They take you on adventure cicumnavigating the island, going snorkeling, and enjoying a terrific hot local lunch of chicken, fish, rice, pumpkin and more. Dont miss Chippys fish and chips on Wednesday and Friday nights as they are located just a few feet from Antigua Village. We also recommend visiting Turners beach or Jolly beach during your stay. We did have some trouble communicating with Mr. Day after booking our vacation. We needed to extend our stay by one day and tried to contact him three times through the VillaRenters website between June and December with no response. We finally got our reservation confirmed, but we did not get a response about the extra day until we were actually in Antigua. It all worked out in the end, but better communication would have been preferred.

Great location and surroundings and nice apartment with superior services the balcony and the view on the beach it gives is superb. The beach, a few yards in front, is divine. Overall satisfaction. Some details could be improved: very bad knotty pillows and low standard mattress. Basic kitchen wares are provided I would suggest the provision of a basic blender, one could make smoothies with the terrific tropical fruits ! Mosquitoes during the night are a problem, the cheap screens not fitting tightly these invisible stinging beasts seem to appreciate white flesh, ours was abundantly red-dotted and itchy in the morning.

Had a very bad experience with renting this unit. I emailed the owner about initially renting this unit with several questions I had and he NEVER replied. I went ahead and booked anyway with villarenters.com but when I arrived at Antigua Village they did not have any record of my booking. Apparently it is the owners responsibility to place the booking with Antigua Village. If I had not brought along my booking confirmation, reception would have turned me away. I didnt get the requested unit until the people in it checked out, which was a day later. Instead we got a bad unit with rusted out appliances and poor furnishings. The owner, Mr Day, didnt respond to this problem until 5 days AFTER our arrival and only offered to "perhaps we can liaise upon your return" ... whatever that is supposed to mean. If you are thinking about renting this unit be aware you may not have a room when you arrive and if there is a problem dont expect the owner to do anything for you... defiantly not quickly anyway. We also rented another unit (Property ref: 86907 ) and it was a nice place and the owners of that unit had everything looked after and responded quickly to all questions. When we did finally get to move into this unit it was nice except for a extremely hard bed. We lost several days of vacation due to this error with no help from this owner. Left with a bad taste and wont return here.

Property was nice and close tonthe beach. We enjoyed especially the close location tonthe sea which resulted in a refreshing dive even before breakfest. Slight remark is the leaking shower and the one matres double bed. Rest was good. The surrounding and especially the gardens were stunning, beatiful. For a sea and watersport holiday good. Rest of the iland not so much to do or see. Missed some old english historic places and buildings.

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The location is perfect and the view stunning. We enjoyed walking the bay every day and listening to the sound of the waves sending us to sleep at night. We liked having beach bars close by that we could easily walk to and had some excellent meals in them. We also cooked meals in the apartment and enjoyed them on the balcony looking out to sea. The apartment is very comfortable, although the bathroom would benefit from some modernisation. And at times we found there was insufficient hot water for showering and washing up etc. The reception people were very friendly and helpful and all the staff made us feel very welcome. We would certainly like to stay here again.

A nice property overall, especially for the price. If you are looking for top luxury, go elsewhere - if you want good value for your money, beautiful surroundings (best around Antigua) and everything else you basically need for a very relaxing holiday, this property is a very recommendable choice. We had it rented for two weeks, November 2009. But, do rent a car for a day or two and see what the island has to offer.

We really enjoyed our stay & found the apartment to be the perfect place to chill out !. Well situated at the quiet end of the beautiful Dickensons Bay Beach overlooking the crystal clear Carribean Sea. This was our 23rd visit to the Islands & if you like us, hate all inclusive packages it`s the perfect soloution to enjoy a beachfront location normally reserved for Hotels. The Apartment was clean & well equipped,staff at the Resort friendly & helpful. I was nervous about booking online as it was the first time I had done it. The booking was easy with very good comunication, it was a piece of cake !!!!. Would recomend this holiday home !!!.

This property is perfectly situated on its own private golden sandy beach positioned just feet form the sea. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed our stay immensely. it has been by far the best holiday we have been on. Perfect for just chilling out in the hot sun. It was beautiful being able to up each morning and lookout across a spectacular view. We enjoyed ourselves so much there that we decided to get married right their down on our beach. We found the staff that worked there to be extremely polite and helpful as we called on them as witnesses. We would recommend this place to everyone and we ourselves are planning on returning very soon. It was a perfect holiday to which we will never forget.

Antigua is a fantastic place to go & if you are also thinking about booking this apartment then DEFINITELY DO! - You will bot be disappointed at all.. The location is excellent (one of the best for sure) - a stones throw away from a lovely beach & right next door to a great restaurant. The apartment itself is perfect too - very clean & well equipped with an excellent daily maid service . The pool is also close-by & the gardens are well maintained. Looking forward to a return visit one day....10 out of 10 & not to be missed!

We loved Antigua. Loved the apartment, we thought it was probably in the best position on the complex.Very comfortable. Excellent maid service. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We've read the other reviews, and personally had no problems with any of the points raised, but were glad of the warning about the steps, as we took extra care in the wet. We liked the Italian Restaurant (La Bussola). The Jumbo Shrimp are out of this world and they have a very good wine list. It's not cheap but you can make up for it by going to the Chip Van (which I'm surprised no-one has mentioned, also excellent) on another night. The only bad meal we had the entire holiday was lunch at Jolly Beach one day. We were lucky enough to be there during the Stanford 20/20 Cricket tournement and spent 2 evenings at the Sticky Wicket watching. Ticket prices there include a buffet meal and it is a great night out. We hope to visit Antigua again and would definitely stay here.

We had a wonderful stay in Antigua Village, and would stay here again definately. The villa was probably the best situated in the entire village as it was so close to the beach and restaurant, and the gardens were beautiful as well as the other views. Unfortunately, our first day was met with a bit of a disaster, as following a tropical storm, the painted concrete steps to the villa were very wet. My wife slipped on these wet steps and landed very heavily on her hip and back, which caused massive bruising, but fortunately no fractures otherwise our holiday would have been ruined. In this respect, I suggest that the steps are roughened and not painted,and that a suitable wooden handrail is fixed to the wall, as their is nothing to grasp when ascending or descending these steps. The curved top of the wall alongside the steps is unsuitable, as this too is very slippery when wet and not narrow enough to grasp should you slip. My wife tried to grasp the top of the wall but slipped even worse as a result scraping her hand badly down the rough rendered wall. Fortunately, apart from severe bruising, there were no serious injuries. This should be sorted out as a priority as some other person may not be so lucky. All other villas in Antigua Village appear to have a suitable handrail where necessary and roughend steps / not painted. The water pressure from the bathroom sink is very low, and takes ages to fill. Mosquito netting within the villa is not very effective as they are ill fitting allowing lizards and other unwelcome visitors in. The services for the villa were superb and we were very well looked after as regards clean linen, towels etc. Overall, the villa was beautiful and generally well kept and we hope that we can stay here again, as long as a handrail is fitted for the steps. Thankyou for a wonderful holiday in a wonderful place.

Just as described the standard of furnishings in our apartment were second to none and the view from the balcony of the Caribbean were just breathtaking. This property advertises walking glass in hand to the beach and we did indeed do just that most evenings to enjoy the sunset. The Antigua Village staff in general are lovely friendly people and the reception area in the resort was more than helpful. They have information on just about anything you could wish to do...eating, drinking, car hire, sailing, snorkelling, day trips, swim with dolphins - you get the idea - even an aromatherapy/massage service & no we didn't try it! If we could offer any holiday tips we would have to recommend the Lobster Shack restaurant which offers a free taxi service there & back from the resort (just pre book at reception). It is only a few minutes away and the food and service was as good as we had on the island. If you are feeling lazy there is another beachfront restaurant called The Coconut Grove, not quite as good but literally on your doorstep and handy for breakfast. Also worth trying are the island catamaran tour which collects opposite sandals. The shop in the resort will happily get you by for day to day provisions but if you intend to self cater and cook evening meals etc, as we did, I would suggest (for approx £10.00 return) a taxi to the Epicurean supermarket at the Woods Centre. Easily on a par with supermarkets back home except the wine and spirits are significantly cheaper! During our stay we made a few friends and spent a little time in some other units - safe to say ours was easily one of the nicest and we now have competition if we decide to book again next year. In summary if you are looking for that extra bit of luxury in a paradise setting I would certainly recommend this apartment - it certainly lived up to our expectations and we are very grateful to the owners for all their help and advice beforehand as it provided a lovely holiday.

Great overall position on beach with wonderfull views. Some cover over the patio would have been great. The apartment is basic but comfortable apart from the seating inside leather and heat do not go well together. The maids are very efficient and very friendly as are the staff at the reception drinks evening. Very relaxing venue as it was quiet in August not sure how it would change if it were busy as space in garden/beach areas were popular. Will visit again as it was an overall agreeable holiday. Car needed for visiting the island a must!

We were not sure what to expect and were happily surprised when we arrived. The view from the balcony really is like in the photos and the beach is less than a stones throw away. The beach is wonderful and there are a number of places to eat within easy walking distance (we recommend La Bussola - a fantastic Italian restaurant on the beach, about ten minutes walk south along the road outside the apartment complex). Thoroughly recommended. PS: Dont forget repellent for the ubiquitous mosquitoes!

Excellent Studio Apartement (No. 49B) Really great for 1 /2 persons - I was there on my own, so it was just right for me. Its very private, on the 1st floor with stairs to the apt. that were sort of concealed behind the block. Its bright and had 2 TV s which were quuite addictive esp. the bedroom one!! The maintenance man Jason was very helpful ehen the fuse blew out due to a storm and very efficient too and were Jennifer and Desiree. the ladies at the reception. The open balcony overlooks the Caribbean sea which is just 6 steps away - I would just take away some palm trees to enhance the view though!! The kitchen utensils were plentiful and the bathroom water pressure was great too even though the apt. is on the 1st floor. Im not a fuupot for furniture as such - the owner did have modern furnoture put in - though I would consider having a harder mattress intead - bit too soft that one and had bit of back pain! :) Having said that the apt. was close to 2 restaurants thoguht Putters across the road os xcellent too! The sea was great and warm - just the typoe of place to go to when youve had a stressful year!! Beach, sand, warm sea and relaxation all day long - I didnt want to leave at all!! Was there for over 2 weeks and felt afe at all times!! Id definitely recommend it to anyone - the owner was very communicative when I needed to ask him stuff - pity I didnt save up - Id have bought the apt, myself )

Well positioned, virtually on beach, accommodation on first floor (second floor in US terms), not overlooked. Lack of shade on balcony can be a problem - we took sun umbrellas with us. Accommodation could do with a bit of TLC: bathroom, needs updating, DVD player not working, burners on stove mostly not working (take matches). However, very nice beach, sea good for swimming and watersports. Antigua village complex well maintained with good pool. Reasonable restaurants in walking distance, although need to get taxi or car to a supermarket - small shop on site, plus daily visit from fruit and veg lady. Taxis can be expensive, so check before you travel!

We had a fantastic holiday, we both loved Antigua and the Antiguan Village Beach Club is a great place to stay. We liked the freedom of eating in different local restaurants such as Coconut Grove, The Beach and Papa Zouks. We also liked going into St John's at sundown and enjoying a beer on the habour as the cruise ships sailed out. I would recommend some of the local tours such as Paddles Ecotour, Prickly Pear Island and the Wadadli Cat round island trip. The apartment was fine and in a very good position, however I would agree with a few of the previous reviewers that the kitchen and bathroom could do with a spuce up, also the steps do get very slippery after a downpour and this does need to be fixed. But overall these are very minor points.

A beautiful location and fabulous complex of privately owned properties, the gardens full of palms and banana trees and pool area were gorgeous and very peaceful. The apartment location is fabulous with a lovely sea view. I thoroughly recommend Antigua and we had a really relaxing and comfortable stay. If I had to offer any negative view and for the sake of an honest review the kitchen and bathroom at the apartment could do with a revamp as slightly old and tired however ceratinly did not marr the enjoyment of a great holiday. Great maid service and security on site, taxis readily available - see Sylvester (in the car park)for a great taxi service.
