"My husband and I and another couple stayed at Sugar Shack for a week starting on January 31, 2015. We rented a car, which I recommend if you want to see a lot of the island, but as others have commented, be prepared to drive on the "wrong" side of the road and expect some bumpy rides. If you just want to chill out and enjoy the beauty of the setting, you really don't need one. Dickenson Bay is a easy walk away and some of the excursions make a stop at the Sandal's there for pickup and return. We took the circumnavigation catamaran snorkeling tour, which I highly recommend. All the beaches - and there are a ton of them - are public. We have visited several of the Caribbean islands and Antigua stands out as one of the most beautiful.
There is a lovely restaurant called Ana's in Dickenson Bay with fabulous views. You can rent an umbrella and two chairs for $20 for the entire day in front of Ana's - quite a bargain. This is a marvelous little strip of beach right next to Sandal's with lots of shade. The parking lot was free and never full. Due to the fact that the wife of the other couple was in a wheelchair, we ate most meals on the deck of the cottage, making extensive use of the great BBQ and also the Jacuzzi. When we had a medical issue one day, Ilse was extremely helpful, making phone calls and offering advice. She is an awesome hostess. We only met Bill at Sundowners's but he was great as well - so friendly and welcoming.
The cottage is just as described with good WiFi and TV reception, and we even had maid service twice a week. We enjoyed watching all the birds from the deck and saw several hummingbirds. The grounds are impeccably kept by Gerald, who was wonderful, and most helpful. The phone in the unit and the cell phone were nice little extras, especially as my phone service - Greatcall - did not work in Antigua. If you want to spend a few carefree days in Paradise, I highly recommend this cottage. You will not be disappointed."

"This is truer for me than most because as you know I am an Antiguan! We had a truly wonderful 3 weeks at Cliffside once again, proof if proof is needed (which it isn't!) is that we have already booked for next February! The villa itself has just about everything needed for a holiday rental with the fantastic weather and views thrown in for free! Another added bonus is the constant delight of the Bananaquits, the lizards and, of course, Lucy! It really is a piece of Paradise, but then I might be a tad biased! Truly Cliffside is a delightful spot in every way."

"During August 2014 my then Fiancée and I stayed at Shell Villa for two weeks during which time we were married at the villa itself.
From the time of our arrival at the airport, being greeted by our driver and guide, to the very last day when our wonderful housekeeper helped us with our luggage, nothing was too much trouble for any member of the Shell Villa 'team'.
The property was immaculately presented, with a few surprise extras in the kitchen department. Our introduction was friendly, informative and very supportive. That is how it went for the next two weeks. A friendly, supportive team who were always available at the end of the phone but who never got in the way.
The location is as special as the villa itself. The villa, the sea, the grounds and surrounds made a perfect backdrop to the wedding. Over the whole two weeks we enjoyed and relaxed so much that a return visit is a must. The villa gets a top star rating in our books.
Two very happy people."

"If you truly want a luxurious Carribbean vacation hurry and book a stay at Villa Sull Oceano. The house is spectacular with all the amenities and the view from your patio is breathtaking overlooking your own private beach. Our family of 7 people was easily accommodated in spacious bedrooms. The property is meticulously maintained and the people in Jolly Harbour are extremely pleasant and helpful. We could not have asked for more."
