  • A True Taste of Paradise

    "Perfect vacation once again. This is the second year 6 of us were fortunate to stay at Callaloo. I consider myself a very lucky girl. The home is absolutely beautiful. It's wide open, cool, breezy, relaxing and the view is spectacular. The private pool is relaxing and very romantic. The view of the bay down below is breathtaking. The owners have gone out of their way provide EVERYTHING you need during your stay (beach chairs, coolers, gas grill, etc) They also were very accommodating in guiding us along our vacation planning. They told us where to rent our car, how to catch the car barge and about a great charter boat and captain to take us on a day trip to the BVIs. We had our passports, Captain Bradley Wilson his boat the Deja Blue and off we went. He made the whole trip a pleasure. He showed us the map and helped us plan our route, making sure that we had great snorkeling along the way. The owner's of Callaloo were great about suggesting wonderful restaurants, music venues, and shopping. We couldn't have had a nicer trip to St. John. If it's up to me, we will go every year. I am hoping it will become our very own "tradition". I highly recommend renting this house. It's not just a house, it's an "experience". Travel safe."

  • the home was awesome, everything you see in the photos about the house and pool are right.

    "We loved the place we stayed at, a little dissapointed at how the beaches of San Pedro were kept up. The weather was absolutely perfect and the restaurants were very good, the average price for two and a couple of drinks for each will run you about 80-90 dollars. An avereage hamberger is about 12.00 american money. All in All I would give San Pedro a 6 oout of 10 because I'm a water lover and it let me down."

  • Great island, great condo, great vacation!

    "We had a very relaxing stay in this beautiful condo. The condo is very clean, spacious, well stocked and beautifully furnished. The owners have thought of absolutely everything. We enjoyed the balcony and the patio doors. There was no need to use the air conditioning as there was always a cooling breeze. We found the door code so much more convenient than having to worry about keys. The biggest problem for us was deciding to spend our day at one of the 3 pools or the nearby beaches. There are many good restaurants within easy walking distance. The island is beautiful and the locals are very friendly and helpful. We were 4 women and always felt welcome and safe. We didn't bother with a car as the taxis are plentiful and not expensive. The owners were very easy to work with and provided us with lots of information and helpful tips. Thank you Wynona for sharing your beautiful home with us."

  • Très bien

    "Très bon séjour au calme, ce que nous recherchions. Extrême gentillesse et attention des propriétaires toujours avec un petit présent ou friandise locale auxquels nous ne attendions pas. Dommage l'éloignement du charment village où nous avons nos habitudes. A recommander absolument, voiture indispensable."

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.
