"We had the great pleasure of staying at the Gordon House during our first visit to the isle of Antigua. To begin, Amanda, our rental liasion, was incredible. She went out of her way to help set up our visit, supply us with directions and tips about the home and island activities. You could not ask for better service. The housekeeper, Marilyn is a very sweet lady and even though we arrived quite late and during an infrequent rain, she was standing by the gate to ensure we found the house. Marilyn was very helpful and will do as much or as little as you would like as to cooking and/or cleaning. We cooked our own meals, but had her come every other day and she would clean around the entire home and did our dirty laundry. We also opted to forward a grocery list (which was really quite extensive) to Amanda which she forwarded to Marilyn. Everything on the list from smoked turkey to some local Antigua rum was waiting for us upon arrival. The home is just as described and pictured in the listing, clean, spacious, well furnished, very private and in a beautiful setting on the northeast corner of the island. The vista every morning overlooking Devils Bridge was amazing from the back patio area. Three items to note, and I want to emphasize these were NOT problems or detriments, but considerations only, when looking at Gordon House. 1. It is a typical tropical home, meaning it is "open". There are breeze ways in the ceilings, the master bathroom is somewhat open with breeze blocks overlooking the the side yard. Ceiling and room fans only - no AC. 2. There are 65 steps down to the incredible private beach area. So if stairs are hard on you..... Otherwise, there are several lounge chairs, tables, a shaded area and plenty of room to stretch in the sun. We thought it was fantastic. I do highly recommend swim shoes since there are reef areas off the beach and if you plan on snorkling or swimming, they will be handy. 3. The house is home to two adorable black and white cats that roam the grounds freely. Now we are critter people, so they immediately became part of the family. But you can easliy limit their access if wanted. If your planning on driving, I would recommend a small SUV or jeep for traveling around the island. The infrastructure is limited and roadways can be narrow and bumpy. You need to watch for the roaming herds of goats and occassional donkeys and remember, they do drive on the LEFT side of the road. Thank you Amanda!"Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: March 2013 Review Submitted: May 16, 2013View listing
"A much needed vacation took me and my family to Antigua to escape the winter. We found the Sugar Shack to be a wonderful place the kitchen was well equipped, I loved the windows that opened up to the breezeway between the two bedroom buildings! It is exactly what you would expect of an island vacation! Thank you to the wonderful host!!"Guest: Carol Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: March 11, 2014View listing
"Both units are great...simple, very efficient and clean with a nice quiet beach only steps away! The on-site staff is very friendly and the price for this little gem is really nice. An ideal place to bring friends/family and rent both units. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Brian"Guest: bill t. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 18, 2014View listing
"Really enjoyed our stay at your home in Jolly Harbour. Upon our arrival we noted that it was clean and tidy. The home had all the necessities that we required. Wonderful view of the hills and the marina from the master bedroom. The Housekeeper was very pleasant and checked in on us to see if we needed anything. Great place to stay, will definately be staying here again on our next trip to Antigua. Would recommend a rental car or golf cart rental."Guest: James J.
