  • First Family Vacation Success!

    "I took my wife and newborn son to the Hodge Lodge for our first family vacation and it was the most memorable trip of my life. I didn’t know anything about Parrot Cay other than the fact that it was extremely exclusive and only celebrities like Bruce Willis and Donna Karan have houses there. I did a search on VRBO and the Hodge Lodge came up first because it had the most reviews, always a positive sign. Here I am now, four months later, writing my own review. The house was very special. It was rustic yet very comfortable and clean. My wife loved the decor and I was very impressed with the special touches like an outdoor shower and grill and wine cooler. The best part though, is that the house is situated on a private beach. We hung around there most of the week. My wife spent a lot of time with our son on the hammock overlooking the endless ocean. Every night we tried to find the words to discuss how beautiful our day was. We can’t wait to come back when our son is old enough to enjoy more activities."

  • Perfect home for family gathering

    "We thought 16 of us under one roof would be slightly uncomfortable. Ha, it was a wonderful space to bond, create memories, party, and have private time. Coffee on the terrace was peaceful and meditative. Hammocks on each level allowed everyone enough chilling time. The family room, kitchen, island was the perfect hangout. The men grilled some steaks and we enjoyed a fun dinner on balcony listening to the beautiful songs of the coqui. The location of the bathrooms was the only thing that I wish would have been different. You had to walk through bedrooms to gain access, which might be uncomfortable for non-family members. We had ample parking for a car, van, and SUV on the property. The pool was the perfect place to start the morning, end the afternoon, or dip into on a hot summer night. The outdoor shower was very useful when returning from the beach as well as an extra bathing area to speed up the process for 16 getting ready. This home was easy to reserve, Gina answered all my crazy questions and Joe was there to greet us and send us off. The house and property was immaculate. I have not stopped talking about this home since I returned from vacation. The beach was a walking distance, short and enjoyable."

  • Private little paradise

    "My husband and I stayed here with our 4 year old daughter for two weeks. It was a perfect little family getaway. The house is seculded so it was a nice and quiet break from our usual tourist traps. My daughter loved walking down to the beach and and over to the horse farm just a few properties over. The house was very basic, but was clean and stocked well. We did our own cooking and had everything we needed (except WIFI but you can get that at restaurants and cafes downtown). We rented a golf cart which was definately needed to get down town, Beautiful island. Friendly people. Can't wait to go back."

  • Fantastic Choice for an East End Stay

    "My family just recently stayed at Ken's condo for a short two night stay and wish we had stayed there our entire trip (unfortunately it was already booked for the dates we needed). This was a FANTASTIC rental with everything we could possibly need. The place was immaculately clean as if no one had ever stayed there, TVs in the bedrooms, wifi, kayaks, snorkels, and much more. Very cool being right on the ocean and the views are amazing. Thank you, Ken!!"

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.
