"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 loved the villa, we loved the resort and we loved the island! The villa was roomy and clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location was perfect! It was close to everything that mattered to us. The kids pools were awesome and we used them every day. The beach was close and wonderful for little kids. The only downside was the seaweed, which was washing up ashore every day, but I hear that has been the problem of most of the Caribbean lately. My husband and son made a good use of complimentary hobby cat rentals. We had a rental car, so we were able to explore the island a bit and really enjoyed going out to eat to various restaurants. English Harbour/Nelson's Dockyards is amazing! We would love to come back the next year and stay at the villa again."

"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."
