  • Heart still singing from week at Ocean Song Villa

    "We had 3 couples staying at Ocean Song villa last week. And though the main house had enough bedrooms for us, we rented the cottage as well because we didn't want anyone else there during our stay. After 4 years straight of villa vacations on St Barth, I can honestly say that St Kitts was a refreshing change of pace for us. Most of that was due entirely to the hospitality of Ricky and Penny, the use of their lovely beach house, and their property manager, Franklin! The villa is worth renting for those 3 things alone! We found the furnishings to be very comfortable, and the space laid out nicely for three or four couples. Loved starting and ending our days with a dip in the pool! Like others mentioned, the roads on the island in general are not the best, and the dirt road to the villa was menacing. But our rental cars, a minivan and a jeep wrangler, managed just fine. Also mentioned in other reviews was the fact that the beach was covered in spots with sea grass. But part of that was because of the reef in the waters just off the beach, which provided excellent and convenient snorkeling for our group. When you add in the fact that you could walk to the Reggae Beach Bar and Spice Mill restaurant, I think it was a fair trade-off. And if you have any doubts about the sea grass, factor in the convenience of the beach house and its "honor bar", and it becomes a significant value! When we wanted to take a stroll or swim on a beach sans grass, we borrowed Ricky's sand chairs and made the quick drive over to Sandy Bank beach, which has a shallow white-sand beach that allows you to wade pretty far out but still only have water up to your knees or waist. Ricky, Penny and Franklin proved to be the most perfect hosts and an invaluable source of information during our week there. We dined in every night except 2 because Franklin was able to get us some great fresh swordfish steaks (enough for 2 dinners!) and parboiled lobsters 2 nights that we finished on the grill at the villa. And though we had some great food at other places on the island, none was better than those we prepared ourselves. Other recommendations: Spice Mill was a nice place for dinner; on Ricky's recommendation, we had drinks at sunset at the Salt Plage--a must do; it's worth the ride around the island to visit Romney Mansion and Brimstone Fortress (get their hot sauce!); and if you make the trip around, definitely plan to have lunch at Kittitian Hill's Belle Mont Farm! Highly recommend!"

  • Absolute Paradise!

    "We dream about our times at Stargazer all the time! We had visited three consecutive years, but it had been 15 years since our last stay... Now, with both children at ages where we knew they'd love it as much as we do, we returned to find this perfect getaway better than our memories served us! The home is spacious, clean and recent upgrades are obvious - bathrooms are beautiful - each room has its own private deck, and the views from every part of the home are a dream. The kitchen has everything (and more!) than you'd ever need. The whole visit is an adventure and we love every minute of it - whether it is snorkeling or diving from the boat or bone fishing on the flats or driving up the jungle road to the house, watching the sunset and stars from the top of the island (where the house so ideally sits)... If you like a little bit of adventure and want to do something a little different, this is the place for you! You can get away from it all at Stargazer... while having the comforts of home! A great asset of the location is the proximity of the (relatively) new development on Scrub Island. The Marriott-run resort has lots of amenities that we used - Dive BVI is an amazing dive shop. Since we dove on our own most of the time, they filled tanks for us twice a day and took us on some wonderful dives (that were a little too far for us to take the boat to!)... we used the market almost daily to pick up supplies, deli meats, and basic things, and we ate at the restaurant a few times (which was very good). 15 years ago, Scrub wasn't developed. Now, you've got Marina Cay and Scrub for resources. We couldn't recommend this property more - we adore it and can't wait to return next year!"

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.
