  • Unplugged Peace and Seclusion

    "We stayed at Sapodilla Cottage over the week of 4th of July. This is a very slow time on the island with lots of businesses closed following the winter/spring season but we loved the relaxed pace and lack of crowds. We were originally booked in the Birds and Bees cottage but due to a scheduling mix up, ended up in Sapodilla (Janie was very gracious about reducing the cost due to the changed). The cottage itself is packed with charm. At first we were unsure about the smaller kitchen and overall living area of Sapodilla but found that it worked quite well for 2 people and was much more private than the other cottage. A few things could be improved in the kitchen (sharper knives and scissors would be my main suggestion) but otherwise, we found everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinner each day. We loved the open-air nature of the cottage, especially the outdoor shower and hammock on the verandah. While it was the height of summer, the ceiling fan and island breezes made it comfortable to sleep at night. We also enjoyed the company of Janie's dogs who would come to visit us in the morning and evenings as well as the company of loads of birds and geckos on the porch. We visited Half Moon, Rendezvous, Pigeon and Darkwood Beaches -- each had its own distinct personality and all were wonderful (note: you really need a 4WD vehicle to get to Rendezvous; it's an adventure. And when you go to Darkwood get lunch from Mrs. George's stand). Janie was extremely helpful both before and during our visit. She recommended Titi Rent a Car and we had a great experience with them. Titi himself picked us up from and returned us to the airport so that we wouldn't have to struggle with directions. All in all, our week at Sapodilla Cottage could be summed up as peaceful. If I return to Antigua, Janie will be the first person I call!"

  • Perfect family vacation

    "I would like to thanks Alan and his wife for sharing their home with us. The home is about 30 minutes from the airport. We rented a car from Dollar rent a car (great sevice and brand new suv) and it was very easy to drive on the island. There are multiple grocery stores on the way, we decided to stop at the Epicurian in St Johns. You will find everything you need at that store. There are also many banks with instant teller machines around that area. The drive to Antigua Highlands is very nice. Antiguans are very courteous on the road. as you arrive at the villa the view is just amazing. We were welcomed by Elerene, the house keeper. She is so nice and she made ourselves feel at home right away. She came to the home everyday to make sure everything was fine and she even did our laundry. The home is big, very clean, fully equipped, comfortable, lots of space to move around, very high ceiling and so beautiful. They have a front patio with a BBq and chairs and a large table. In the backyard, which is facing the ocean, there is a large deck with a spectacular view of Half Moon Bay. This beach is quiet, clean and the water so clear. You can either enjoy the big waves or move to the extreme corners of the beach where the sand is like powder and the water is calm with no waves. There is a reef barrier making those parts of the beach very popular. There is a restaurant/bar on the beach ran by Smiling Harry. It is good but the service very slow, 45 minutes for 5 hot dogs seems long for me. Most of the meals were spent at the home anyway, it is so convenient. At night, we enjoyed the background noise from the wind and the waves. No loud music or screaming like that you find at different resorts. The internet and the cable TV works great. Our family voted to go back again. We felt safe and at home right away. This is by far one of the best home that I have rented in the carribean."

  • Such a great place!

    "This is such a perfect place to stay. The condo is very convenient to everything and just high enough to afford a magnificent view. It is one of four in a small building so there isn't any/alot of noise from your neighbors. It is just minutes away from everything and unless you want to venture to other parts of the island, there is no need to rent a car. One thing we wished we'd figured out earlier in the trip was that you can join the Yacht Club across the street ($65) for a week and have unlimited use of the lasers - so be advised if you like to sail. The wind's always up! The condo is spotless, bright and airy and equipped just as advertised. The owner is highly attentive to your needs, communicates promptly and is a joy to deal with. The same can be said for the two people who will assist if you have any needs in Falmouth. We rented a car and took one day to sightsee the rest of the island. Unless you're into staying in an isolated resort, Falmouth and English harbor are the places to be. Lots to do, two fantastic beaches, and great, great restaurants. You won't be disappointed."

  • Perfect in every way!

    "We just returned from our stay for a week at Perfect Sunshine Villa with our family of four and another family of four. The house is spectacularly sited on the top of a ridge with endless views both east and west. It is on the grounds of the Nonsuch Bay Resort, which entitled us to the use of the resort's 3 pools in addition to the private pool at the house, which was huge. The house is characterized by tons of usable space both inside and out. It has a fully equipped kitchen where we made most of our meals, but the resort's restaurant is amazing, as is Harmony Hall five minutes away. If you like sun, there is ample sunning space. If you like to read in the shade, or do yoga on the decks, you can have that too. You could have an amazing time and never leave the grounds of the house. We did a bit of exploring of the island and all of us kiteboarded, with the very professional 40 Knots kite school located at the resort. The kiteboarding spot at Green Island is one of the best I've been to, and I've been to many all over the world. The resort also has a famous sailing school for instruction or just to rent boats. The wind was perfect the entire time we were there, which made the use of air-conditioning unnecessary. The caretaker of the house took great care of us, even providing us with fresh fish on two nights. Did I mention the views? Breathtaking is an overused word, but is very appropriate for this villa. We will return!!!"
