  • Awesome!

    "This condo was fantastic! Trisha was very easy to work with and she's done a terrific job with condo décor and making it feel comfortable. It's supplied with everything you need. Beach accessories were great - coolers, towels, beach chairs, umbrella, beach bag, etc. It's such a great location - quiet, restaurants are close, out of the resort/noisy areas, wonderful pool, beaches within short walking distance, and lovely views of marina and ocean. You can't beat the price. We will definitely be back and would never hesitate to rent from Trisha again."

  • Great location and property

    "Lil Sugar is a quaint property. Mary ensured that we felt very welcome prior to and when we arrived with little touches even like flowers that made it feel even more like home. This was our third time to St Maarten and although we had discovered a lot on the island, she quickly gave us suggestions for new areas to explore which was very helpful. I would recommend and have already recommended this property to friends and family and Villa Sugar is beautiful with a fantastic view. The photos are accurate but you just have to see and enjoy in person."

  • PERFECT FIT FOR US!

    "We've been coming to STT for years, and this is possibly the best of what we look for in a waterfront condo. Views....fabulous! From our balcony we can enjoy a wide expanse of the Caribbean Sea and enjoy the ocean breezes as we drink morning coffee or enjoy the sunset. Accommodations....love that there is not only a microwave but an actual stove since we usually cook rather than dine out. The kitchen, while small, has been nicely updated. It is fully stocked and very functional. Bed.... The most comfortable bed. It's similar to a Temper-Pedic. It allowed us to sleep well and rise refreshed. Bathroom nicely updated. Pool.....right beside our building. A bar/ grill is usually open at poolside; unfortunately it's closed for repairs during this stay, but a nice "extra" when open. Snorkeling.....Sapphire Beach has some of the best snorkeling on STT; grassy areas have let us see many turtles and several stingrays....Eagle and Southern. Actual reef areas are home to numerous colorful fish; some areas are close to the surface which means some great underwater shots due to optimal sunlight. All in all, this is the best combination of the things we come to STT for. Tom/manager of the unit was great. Good quick responses to emails and a great hook-up for car rental, a huge benefit in light of some previous experiences with airport car rentals. We will be back! Thanks Tom!"

  • vacation time 2014

    "I had a wonderful time, was there for my daughters vow renewal. The place had enough room for my family. The owners had the property well maintained. Clean and lots of towels. They was very helpful with the keys information when I had problems opening the doors. I would recommend the stay to my family and friends. I would tell them to eat at all restaurants surrounding the hotel and do all the activities. I would come back myself."

Montserrat Travel Tips

Attractions and Activities near Montserrat Vacation Rentals

Possibly Montserrat's most well-known attraction is the Soufriere Hills Volcano. After centuries of lying dormant, it started spewing volcanic ash in the early 1900s. Five years later, in 1997, a volcanic eruption resulted in pyroclastic flows down the volcano's northeastern slopes. This resulted in the closure of the WH Bramble Airport and widespread evacuation of the local inhabitants. Today, there is an exclusion zone which prohibits access to the volcano and its surrounding area; however, there are several viewing points where you can see the active volcano.

The city of Plymouth which was once is capital is now just an ash-covered ghost town. Unfortunately, it falls within the exclusion zone so it is not possible to visit the site. The best viewing points are at Jack Boy Hill and the Montserrat Volcano Observatory. To get a view of Plymouth, you can go to Garibaldi Hill. The Montserrat Volcano Observatory not only monitors the volcanoes activity; it also provides information to the public. It is well worth visiting.

Montserrat has many natural attractions which are safe and accessible on the northern side of the island. One of the more popular ways to explore is on bicycle. There are also several hiking and trekking trails. The lush forested terrain in the central region is known for its abundant bird life. Birdwatching enthusiasts can see if they can spot the rare national bird, the Montserrat Oriole. Along the coast, you can enjoy the experience of turtle watching. There are several beaches where Green, Loggerhead and Hawksbill turtles come ashore to nest. Access to these beaches is limited but you can join up with an organized guided trek.

Montserrat has pristine coral reefs and excellent diving conditions. Scuba divers rank this island as one of the Caribbean's top diving destinations. Dive charters can be arranged with one of the local operators. For those who don't have a diving certification, you can enjoy the shallower reefs on snorkeling excursions. Sailing is another popular activity and yacht charters can be easily arranged.

Getting to Montserrat Villas

The major international airport on Montserrat was closed following the spate of volcanic eruptions that took place in the 1990s. As a result larger commercial aircraft cannot land on Montserrat. To get to Montserrat, you need to get a commercial flight to neighboring Antigua. From there, you can get a ferry or flight across to Montserrat. A local airline operates daily flights in 19-seater jet prop aircraft. Various charter flights are available as alternatives if you cannot get on the scheduled flights. The ferry from Antigua leaves from St. John and takes approximately 90 minutes. Travelers are required to check in at least 90 minutes prior to departure. A maximum of two bags per person is allowed and luggage has to be checked in. The ferry operates Monday to Saturday and has at least one departure a day in either direction. Ferry tickets can be reserved through the local tourist office in Antigua or through many of the local tour operators.
