The cottage is located conveniently 5mins drive away from Dickenson Bay and Runaway bay beaches, 5mins away from the Woods shopping center and 10mins from town. There is another convenience store and also a gas station 5mins walk away.
Buses to town do run on the main road, which is a short 3 minute walk from the house, but a hire car is recommended to experience all the island has to offer.
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.
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!

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.

We were very happy with our accommodation. Its located in a lovely, quiet community. Easy access to local transportation, close proximity to St. Johns and Dickensons Bay and the supermarket ( the latter within walking distance )
I highly recommend.

CLEGGCaribbean sun and smiles! We stayed here for 2 weeks and wished we could have stayed longer. Very clean, well put together, comfortable house. Lovely family next door to help out with anything you need. Car a must if you don't want to walk long distances but only a short drive to everything you need - supermarkets, stunning beaches and nightlife. Wireless internet access, cable tv and a bbq if you want to relax in on the porch. Great restaurants and bars nearby if you don't. We highly recommend this property and would go back in a second.
ben in nyc new york city, usa. Review Submitted: January 09, 2008 Date of Stay: December 2007My father, brother and myself stayed at this little home in antigua over the recent holidays. The house was just built and next to it is another small home where the owners live, a wonderful antiguan couple. Being a new house there were a couple loose ends to sort out (a leaky faucet and such) and the two owners immediately had the contractor and plumber come to replace the faucet. The house is a five minute drive to the beach, five minute drive to town and a five minute drive to a large supermarket. There is also a smaller supermarket a five minute walk away. The shower had excellent water pressure hot water and the kitchen is nice and full of pots and pans, plate and bowls. The television has heaps of channels. This home also has a great porch for sitting in the morning, the internet is wireless and you can get it from the porch although a wi-fi extender will be installed soon and should allow you access from inside the house in the near future. This is a great home for a small family, or two couples. There is two queen size beds in two rooms, a small living room with couch and an open kitchen in the living room. There is a table on the porch with four chairs., great for dinner outside, the porch is covered so if it rains all is cool. Restaurants are a short drive away in all directions, but we did heaps of cooking. We didn't have a car and walked all over the place! This is one of the best deals on the island!
