Solo from Tewkesbury, United Kingdom Feb 2016

The pink shacks are delightful. Brilliantly planned so every inch of space is used, they are spotlessly clean and Sonja has thought of everything you could need. She was constantly on hand to advise us and introduced to her network of local contacts so we tended to use taxis rather than hire a car. We also took a trip out to the reef for snorkelling followed by being dropped at a local beach restaurant for the afternoon and then were picked up again at 4pm. It adds immeasurably to your street cred to be picked up by boat. The accommodation is in a fairly quiet rural area but is not that far from the airport and St Johns and the accommodation was excellent value for Antigua in high season. Would thoroughly recommend.

Family from Merritt, Canada Apr 2014

Our family of four stayed at Avocado Cottage for three weeks in April/May. We found it spacious and comfortable, and as such, good value for the cost. The location was ideal and quiet, and along with our vehicle rental allowed us easy access to all areas of the island. I would highly recommend this property to someone who is looking for a location other than a resort yet is wanting to be central to all amenities such as beaches, shopping and sightseeing. The owner, Sonja, lives up the street and is very helpful. She took us on a tour of the area, providing commentary and information regarding the local history and flora.

Dear Sonia,Just a quick e-mail to say thanks again for a wonderful two weeks at Avocado Cottage this August. For us, it was the perfect place to relax and we had a very special kind of vacation experience. The cottage was comfortable, nicely decorated and very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of sitting on the terrace early in the morning, watching the birds and enjoying the lovely garden with its tropical flowers and to see the fruit trees coming along nicely. The charming location made us feel very private - hard to believe we were only about 10 minutes from the capital of St. Johns. Thanks for being such a special host and for taking such good care of us. It was certainly appreciated and we were glad to know, that should we need anything, wed just have to knock on your door just a little further up the road! :) Renting a car was also good advice. We think it was the perfect way to explore the island although we only made a small fraction of the 365 beaches but it also meant we discovered quite a few nice restaurants on the way. We are really looking forward to returning next summer. Thanks very much again and see you soon! Tracey and Leroy
