  • 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."

  • Wonderfully Relaxing Vacation

    "We just returned from a 9 day stay in this villa. This is our first experience staying off an all inclusive resort and we found it much more relaxing, and less scheduled than staying on resort. The villa was spotless and contained everything we needed. My husband and I could not think of one item that was lacking - it was perfect! We were particularly excited to see the blender when we entered, along with a recipe book for making Caribbean drinks, which we made good use of daily! And, of course, thank you very much for the welcome beer and milk in the refrigerator! I particularly enjoyed the direction the patio faced as we got the morning sun right from sun up. I sat there each morning with my book and my rum cream coffee - what a treat. And the walk to the North beach is very short. We spent a lot of time there both in the afternoon, and watching the the sunset in the evening. We loved that both beaches were not in any way crowded. We did walk everywhere - we wanted to do this for the exercise - but if you plan to do so you must bring a good pair of walking shoes. We enjoyed the restaurants very much - particularly lunch at the Crow's Nest and dinner at Al Port. We found the prices very reasonable, and the food was excellent. All in all, a fabulous place to stay! Thank you Elton and Jayne - you have a real gem there!"

  • wonderful hideway

    "If you want to experience the real Antigua, then the Bamboo Cottage is for you. Joanne is a fantastic host. She met us on arrival with a platter of light snacks. Well appreciated since our flight was 2 hours late! All the beaches and restaurants she mentioned were worth the trip. The cottage is very romantic with the tree frogs at night and finches during the day. Having your own private pool cannot be beaten. Using Titi car rental as recommended is worth it as finding the Cottage the first time would be a challenge due to lack of street signs."
