"We spent a glorious week at Marisol over the 2015 New Year holiday. The setting is spectacular and the house is very well furnished and cleaned. We were lucky to meet Valli and her daughter, who overlapped the first few days in the house next door. The were both extremely helpful and very nice people. The garden and views were fabulous. There are several porches that are very pleasant spots to sit and read or just soak in the surroundings. We like to watch birds, and were entertained by hummingbirds, bannanquits, flycatchers, and many others from dawn to dusk. Pleasant breezes kept us cool at night and were never hot during the day. The beach was a few minutes away, just walk down a spectacular garden path and you are there. Excellent swimming beach. A pleasant 30 minute walk takes you to Devil's Bridge National Park, which is on a dramatic peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic, with surf crashing over the rocks. We recommend dinner at the nearby Verandah resort (walk over to reserve at their best restaurant, Nicole's, and get the lobster thermidor!). We explored a lot of the island by rental car, and especially enjoyed Half Moon Bay and a boat ride to Green Island from Harmony Hall (excellent lunch there too). We highly recommend this house as an awesome place to stay at in Antigua."

"The pictures are tremendous, but don’t give the place justice, as they can’t capture the sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks below, or the healthy wind that blows refreshingly and constantly. A great way to capture the magnitude of the view; we could see the villa clearly while swimming with stingrays at a sandbar the might easily be 10-15 kms away.
The beach is truly only a 2 minute walk down a very well maintained path. Long Bay is very nice and while a little busy when the cruise ships are in, is virtually all yours in the morning and by 5:00 p.m. Snorkeling off the beach won’t blow the experienced away, but was still solid fun for the family. Had drinks on Marina’s restaurant deck most days and she and her staff were very nice. Marina was also very responsive and available for arriving/departing and any other questions we might have had through the week.
The villa itself was very well stocked. We did a lot of cooking and found any tool necessary. The BBQ was solid as well, with a nice Kenmore 4-burner that reached nice high heats allowing for some quality grilling. Lots of deck furniture, including two large tables. Beds were comfortable in the main house. We didn’t rent the cottage, but had a look inside and it’s a nice option for larger groups with kids.
As others have stated, the gardens are expansive and very nice. Dwight the gardener is a great guy.
You really should rent a car. Loved Antigua, the people are awesome. You should see the island and the guest book is filled with great recommendations. Every one we followed was on the money. Half Moon and Smiling Harry’s was a classic example of a little risk with tremendous reward.
Lisa was a joy to deal with throughout the entire process. We had an absolutely fantastic vacation."

"My fiancé and I absolutely adored Villa H. The stunning location and views, the privacy, the luxury of your own private sundeck at the water's edge - simply heavenly. If you are looking relax and get away from it all, we can hardly think of a better location. We hardly ventured out save to get provisions! The villa itself is comprehensively appointed, with absolutely masses of internal and external space. Christiane is an extremely helpful host and it is clear she takes great pride in keeping the property immaculate. How we would love to be back there now!"

"This was our first time on Antigua and it didn't disappoint! Villa was beautiful and very clean. Owners were always quick to respond before our vacation and during and had helpful suggestions. The only issues we had were the roku wasn't working but the owner tried to resolve the problem quickly but couldn't so they are looking into it further and the water pressure in the showers was not good(but this is Antigua so not much you can do). The people on the island are extremely friendly and willing to give directions when needed or just ask how you are doing. Our favorite beach was half moon bay, not crowded and great snorkeling! Took a little time to get used to driving on the island since we are from the United States, but you get used to it. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach!"
