"Other reviews have said it all really. Bamboo house is a wonderfully relaxing base for exploring the Island. The L-shaped veranda is perfect for leisurely breakfasts spent watching the Caribs (hummingbirds) feed. We loved the hammock too - a great place for getting some reading in before being gently rocked to sleep! We'd recommend a hire car for getting around the Island despite Antigua being very small. Joanne was a great host - always there to help and offer advice but at the same time respecting our privacy. Others have commented about some difficulty in locating Bamboo house but we found Joanne's instructions to be spot on. It is true that the roads leading to the property are rough but then the same goes for parts of the main roads - you really do have to be very alert when driving for sudden gaps in the road. Thoroughly recommended."

"This was our third time staying with Joanne in Falmouth, but our first visit during the "low season" in June. How different could summer be from winter or spring in paradise? What are the chances of a hurricane hitting Antigua and even if one did, wouldn't that just be an even better story to tell? In fact, Antigua in June is more relaxing. There are fewer cars on the road, fewer people on the beaches and fewer choices to make because there are fewer businesses open. We were impelled by sargassum seaweed and by Joanne's advice to try other beaches beyond the old favorites, and we discovered a new favorite, Galley Bay. It's amazing, with the best snorkeling, so if you want to get there, just get on All Saint's Road and keep going straight until you see signs for 5 Island Community (or Village) and take the old Galley Bay road. You'll find it eventually. But if you really want to spend a day in paradise, fly to Barbuda in the morning and get a taxi to Palmetto Point. (Fly Montserrat or ABM airlines) Then walk north to the resort (Lighthouse Resort) stopping to swim and snorkel. It will take 4-5 hours. Bring a backpack for your gear. Buy lots of water in the shopette a couple of blocks from the rustic airport. From the resort, it's a water taxi ride back to Codrington and the airport. (Bring cash.) Trust me, you will never see beaches like these again! And always trust Joanne; she's just the best. After our third visit in four years, we hope she thinks of us as friends the next time she needs a house sitter. Until next year!"

"We have just returned from our second year spending a Month and a Half at Point of View. This is one of the nicest locations on the Island as the views in all directions are simply spectacular. The view over the pool from the Master Bedroom lanai down the undeveloped west coast is unparalleled. The Master bedroom and ensuite bath is perfect. The steady parade of beautiful boats going in and out of the harbor is wonderful.The pool is certainly one of the nicest, largest and deepest we have seen in the Caribbean.
We had a number of friends come to join us over the time we were at the house and there was ample room and privacy in the Studio.
Katherine was very helpful as always and we love the fact that it is a solar house.
This house and property are a true jewel."

"My girlfriend and I stayed in Sapodilla for 5 days at the beginning of June and had the most fantastic time. The accommodation was lovely, an idyllic setting with a great view and cool even without AC due to the trade winds and wide doors. The outdoor shower was a great feature and the private swimming pool and garden were just what we needed. When we arrived the fridge was also stocked with a lovely breakfast, a very nice touch. Quiet, relaxing and great value for money... Highly recommend!!! Thank you Janie x"
