Great time again! The Villa has been re- decorated throughout with added facilities. New fridge freezer, with a good sized freezer compartment. New flat screen TV. New bedding/linen. Extra kitchen utensils. Another LARGE MIRROR IN SECOND BEDROOM! Which pleased my wife. Parking inside on the drive. If there's anything you need during your stay just ask! Mr & Mrs Paul are delightful, so kind and friendly. They helped us settle in and supplied extra items upon request. Any problems were solved as reported. Definitely need a car to explore. There are many "short cuts" to the beaches and other parts of the island, just study the map or ask! St John's does not have to be an obstacle for every trip! The two large, local supermarkets put some of ours to shame! Try to get the up to date Food and Drink book. Lists all the places to eat, see and visit! Often found in restaurants...Dennis's Bar near Jolly Beach and Chippy Antigua behind Coconut Grove Dickenson Bay may stock some. No sea views except from the far end of the balcony, but the sunsets! Great value for money! Dark wood Beach amazing for sunsets! Yours Martin Feb/March 2015
As previous reviews have stated, this rental is a great value for those looking for an alternative to a hotel stay on the island. It is a quintessential island cottage which really allows you to feel at home while away from home. The landscaping is immaculate, furnishings adequate and as we expected, and the property managers next door were a delight. We have a 1.5 year old and really appreciated the fenced-in yard. It's a great location close and convenient (by car) to St. John's, Dickenson Bay and other area beaches, Epicurean Grocery Store (and 2 others close by), movie theater, and other shopping. We particularly loved the front porch, the yard, the coastal breezes enjoyed when having the front & back doors of the cottage open, having a washing machine, and the location. Our only recommendation would be better internet access. My husband didn't have problems obtaining a strong signal with his laptop, but I had difficulty with my smartphone and tablet (iPhone & iPad). That was a bit of an inconvenience for me only because I needed to do some online work while on the island, but not enough to impact my stay. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.
Location was very convenient for me with the large grocery store nearby. The kitchen was adequately equipped nice gas stove, fridge/freezer, plates cups etc. Pots, pans and knives were a little limited but most people probably dont cook as much as me and wouldnt note any lack. At first it seemed the ac - which is just in the bedrooms - didnt work but I was mistaken. During the day it was comfy to just keep the doors open but the ac was useful evening/night time when mosquitos might start to come in the open doors. For parking, the owner preferred to open the gate once in am and once in pm to enable secure overnight parking but otherwise to park outside gate for daytime. This actually did not turn out to pose any inconvenience. Even if I came back late at night, one peep of the horn and he would promptly open the gate by remote. I will definitely be staying here again if I need a cost effective option for staying more than a day or two.
The property has a very good location, 5 minutes from St. John. Very affordable and the owners are really nice people and always willing to help you out on everything you need I will rent this property again if I ever decide to go to Antigua again for vacation.
Very clean and well maintained. Great having landlord next door if assistance is required (propane was used up during a meal and they changed it immediately). Very friendly and hospitable to deal with. Good location. Easy access to grocery stores and beaches. Second time staying here and would do so again. Highly recommend.
