"What can I say....we keep coming back! This is the 3rd year in a row and we really love this place. Hard to beat it's proximity to the water and the amazing view from the rooftop patio. The kitchen is lovely, the beds are comfy. We also really like being able to get to the grocery store and restaurants by golf cart. Thanks for another great vacation!"

"Other reviews have said it all really. Bamboo house is a wonderfully relaxing base for exploring the Island. The L-shaped veranda is perfect for leisurely breakfasts spent watching the Caribs (hummingbirds) feed. We loved the hammock too - a great place for getting some reading in before being gently rocked to sleep! We'd recommend a hire car for getting around the Island despite Antigua being very small. Joanne was a great host - always there to help and offer advice but at the same time respecting our privacy. Others have commented about some difficulty in locating Bamboo house but we found Joanne's instructions to be spot on. It is true that the roads leading to the property are rough but then the same goes for parts of the main roads - you really do have to be very alert when driving for sudden gaps in the road. Thoroughly recommended."

"The pictures are tremendous, but don’t give the place justice, as they can’t capture the sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks below, or the healthy wind that blows refreshingly and constantly. A great way to capture the magnitude of the view; we could see the villa clearly while swimming with stingrays at a sandbar the might easily be 10-15 kms away.
The beach is truly only a 2 minute walk down a very well maintained path. Long Bay is very nice and while a little busy when the cruise ships are in, is virtually all yours in the morning and by 5:00 p.m. Snorkeling off the beach won’t blow the experienced away, but was still solid fun for the family. Had drinks on Marina’s restaurant deck most days and she and her staff were very nice. Marina was also very responsive and available for arriving/departing and any other questions we might have had through the week.
The villa itself was very well stocked. We did a lot of cooking and found any tool necessary. The BBQ was solid as well, with a nice Kenmore 4-burner that reached nice high heats allowing for some quality grilling. Lots of deck furniture, including two large tables. Beds were comfortable in the main house. We didn’t rent the cottage, but had a look inside and it’s a nice option for larger groups with kids.
As others have stated, the gardens are expansive and very nice. Dwight the gardener is a great guy.
You really should rent a car. Loved Antigua, the people are awesome. You should see the island and the guest book is filled with great recommendations. Every one we followed was on the money. Half Moon and Smiling Harry’s was a classic example of a little risk with tremendous reward.
Lisa was a joy to deal with throughout the entire process. We had an absolutely fantastic vacation."
