  • Great place to feel home...away from home!

    "I just returned from Punta Cana, a place I have visited many many times in the last 30 years! On this particular trip, (3 weeks) I spent the first week on my own, just relaxing. I needed a very safe place to be and Cap Cana offers just that. The condo is well located, on the canal, with view of gorgeous boats, promenade "sympathique" and beautiful grounds. 3 minute walk to swimming pools and beach. I highly recommend renting a car if you want to go around - to play golf, go to the casino, do grocery or visit some places. The condo offers all you need to have a pleasant stay. The very large terrace is particularly inviting! The PRET team, on behalf of the owner, is always there to help you and with a smile too! Thank you Francisco and Bolivar! The concierge team of Aquamarina is so dedicated as well. Thank you Rogelio for a very nice place to stay and for keeping in touch although not on site yourself. I truly felt that each and everyone care a lot about my happiness while on vacation. Overall, a great experience that I recommend without hesitation. Thank you all!!! I will come back!"

  • Excellent location and value

    "Communication with the owner was TERRIBLE! I never really trusted him and was very worried that things could go wrong. Well. ... the apartment was great! The location has everything you need even if you don't have a car, walking the area is safe and easy. I did rent a car and a parking spot was included. There is even a vacuum by the laundry room in the parking garage so you can get the sand out. The kitchen was equipped with the things you need for cooking. I would stay again and recommend this place to my friends. Just wish the owner had better communication skills... I've rented many vacation apartments and houses and this owner was hands down the worst I have dealt with."

  • Beautiful Place

    "This was a wonderful place to stay right on the beach in Isla Verde. Mark was a great host and the condo was even better than the pictures depict. The temperatures were mild enough for us to leave the window open and we could hear the sound of the surf. It is in a central location close to great places to eat and a grocery store for all your needs. The balcony provided a wonderful view of the beach and was a great place to eat breakfast and hang out in the evening. Highly recommend this condo and we will be back!"

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.
