  • Top Notch Condo Rental - includes everything you could possibly need!!

    "My group of 4 (two couples) stayed here for a week at the end of October and had an absolutely incredible time. This condo rental is absolutely top-notch and truly made our trip an exceptional one. The appliances, furniture, and linens were all very high quality and in great condition. There was nothing out of place, unclean, or missing and we never lacked for anything. Both Isabel and Teresa helped coordinate our stay and prior to the trip, were able to answer all our questions promptly and professionally. We were well taken care of. Favorite aspects of the condo: how close it is to the beach (just a few minutes to walk), the table and extra seating on the balcony (where we enjoyed many meals), and the clearly careful thought that went into furnishing the condo, as it included everything we needed! Thank you!!"

  • Summer Vacation

    "We are 3 ladies that vacation together once a year primarily for the diving and snorkeling.The house was perfect for us. We loved it and the location was great. We dove the Captain Tibbets which is off the shore of the rental and the snorkeling right out back was fantastic. If you are an underwater photographer then you will love this place. It has a ladder down into a protected cove filled with flamingo tounges, redlip blennies, corals, etc. When we were there in July there was a ball of silversides in the cove everyday. The dive shops are at this end of the island. We found this house to be an outdoor enthusiasts wonderland with the swimming cove, sea pools and blow holes. I wouldn't suggest it if you are more of a "resort" type because there isn't a sandy beach or a resort pool or resort type ameneties. The owner was a pleasure to rent from and Mr. Scott was wonderfully helpful. I would definately return and rent again."

  • Bajen holiday

    "This was a very relaxing week surrounded by blue water and sand, far from snow and closed schools and workplaces. We enjoyed toasting the sunsets from the patio on day one, and floating peacefully in the crystal blue water on lazy mornings just steps from the patio and wandering along beaches past palms, coral and bougainvillea, ginger and Bird of Paradise flowers. The community of like minded tenants were friendly and helpful, sharing favorite day trips and island favorite destinations . We enjoyed several very nice, sophisticated restaurants and several authentic Bajen menu features, rum bars and walk-up shops. We had breakfast at the Polo field while attending a craft fair. All part of the experience of Barbados. The cuisine was wonderful and the fresh fish plentiful from flying fish to barracuda. The tropical plants and foliage were indescribably beautiful at every stop throughout the island. We deplaned and stopped on the way home to tour a local rum distillery dating back centuries; we ended the week relaxing in a private garden tucked into this tropical paradise. You will find a car necessary to get to the many special towns and sites but it is easy to find your way. Take friends or family and rejuvenate yourselves and enjoy a week you will not soon forget."

  • Perfect vacation!

    "Our family of 4 stayed for a week and had a fantastic time! This was our first trip to PR and we debated about staying in San Juan, Rincon, or Fajardo. Fajardo was a good pick because it is near a lot of activities. It’s quiet and right near ocean, but with enough amenities nearby to be comfortable. On the drive from the airport you will pass a wide variety of areas. Pena Mar Ocean Club will be everything you expected and is in a nice area. It is also gated, extremely well maintained, and occupied by a good mix of full time residents and vacationers. Luisa’s apartment is excellent and just as advertised. It is nicely decorated, spacious, comfortable, quiet, and with a nice ocean view from the patio. Everything was sparkling clean. In the morning you can see the sun come up over the water and view of the marina - very picturesque. We were up early every day and too tired to do much at night, so having use of the facilities at Pena Mar was perfect. The basketball court and pools kept our teenagers entertained, and everyone appreciated having the WiFi, flat screens, and comforts of home. There is no food on site so be prepared to get groceries which are about 15 minutes away and not difficult to find. Luisa provides a very detailed book with local recommendations. If you want to try some of the paid tours it’s a good idea to go online and book when you first arrive or in advance. We tried and recommend the East Wind catamaran trip; Pure Adventure Biobay kayaking tour; Carabali Ranch; and Camuy Caves. Our favorite trip was a day trip on the SS Tobias to snorkel off of Culebra. Luisa also knows a local tour guide/driver for day trips. We did this for the Camuy trip and highly recommend."

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.
