  • 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."

  • Beautiful setting!

    "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!"

  • Gorgeous Location, Perfect Hosts

    "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."

  • Phenomenal Condo

    "We have just returned from our trip to Antigua. I have to echo the other two reviews on this property. The condo has everything you want or need. The Kitchen is fully equipped. There wasn't a single appliance that one would want that wasn't already. There is a juice press! Yes a juice press! The condo is extremely spacious and perfectly situated on the property as far as I am concerned. The bay views in the mornin will leave you in awe. I loved the constant breeze. Open the doors and windows and you have the perfect trade wind blowing through all day and night if you choose. The map on the wall should be one of the first things you study after you read the A-Z notebook provided by the owners. The book has a lot of info in it. That map however is awesome. If you rent a car like we did then that map will provide you with awesome information. They have a color coded legend that shows you restaurants, atm's, petrol stations, things to do etc as well as short cuts to English Harbor. Sadly I didn't even notice the map until day 3. The short cuts however, saved us a lot of time. The condo itself is well furnished. Very comfortable chairs and sofa. The beds are comfortable and the linens aren't cheap feeling. There are an ample supply of towels including several for the beach. There is even a cooler in the laundry room which we didn't see until after we purchased our own softsided one. In all we spend 10 days in this condo and I could easily go another 10 days. It's one of the most comfortable quiet condos we have rented. I should finish with a comment about the property manager. She checked in with us to make sure we didn't need anything. When we first arrived, the salt air had taken its toll on the satellite box. We let her know and she managed the situation until it was fixed. We never used it but it was there. This place is a true gem."
