  • Lovely Cottage and Wonderful Hospitality

    "The Sugar Shack was everything we hoped it would be and more! The decor is lovely with some nice Caribbean touches and the garden, breezeway and deck were very relaxing. The cottage is spotless and the hospitality of Ilse and Bill Cooper went above and beyond expectations. We cooked a number of dinners at home and found the kitchen to have everything we needed and the BBQ to be easy to use. My husband, sister and I spent an idyllic 12 days a the Sugar Shack and can recommend it without reservation. We rented a car and visited a number of beaches - though Dickenson Bay is only a 5 minute walk away and is spectacular for swimming. We recommend shopping for food at Epicurean, which is not too far from the cottage, though you will need a car. For an easy dinner or lunch we suggest purchasing the take-out dishes at Epicurean, which are very tasty and will give you a sens of the local fare. Take your cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the late afternoon up to the sunset deck at the top of the garden for a relaxing panoramic view of the horizon. As for restaurants, we enjoyed meals at Anna's, which is within walking distance of the Sugar Shack, and C &C Wine Bar in St. John's. We took a day-long circumnavigation tour on a catamaran with "Wadadli Cats" and loved every minute of it: we sailed around the island, stopping half-way at a beach for a chance to snorkel and a hot lunch. My husband and sister enjoyed a game of golf at the public golf course - golf club rentals were just fine. Nelson's Dockyards is a destination worthy of the journey across the island. Ilse and Bill were very generous with their time and advice on local attractions and history. We would go back in a heartbeat."

  • A week in paradise

    "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."

  • Superb villa and location - highly recommended

    "Everything about this villa is perfection, well-equipped from the exquisite bedrooms, spacious living and dining areas to the stunning views. Visually, the villa is beautifully decorated in the owner’s signature style and was maintained to a high standard throughout our stay. Highly recommended if you like everything to be in easy reach, in land or by sea, it is perfectly situated in a private bay. Transport was efficient and reliable when it came to sightseeing (recommend sunset at Shirley Heights) and dining out. We also opted for a private chef to cater for us, arranged by the very accommodating concierge. There isn't much more to say other than you need to visit this gem for yourself. As a couple, with friends or as a family, Palm Point will meet the highest of expectations and we look forward to returning again."

  • Shell Villa as a wedding venue

    "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."
