  • Great place specially for young kids

    "Excellent place to stay and owner was so helpful. The location is perfect for exploring Puerto Rico. Only took us 5 minutes drive to get ferry for Cullebra. Rain forest, beaches, and all restaurants were so close. Building is secured properly and well maintained. Was really worried before reaching there as i had my 6 years old and 7 months old baby with me. But it was truly a home away from home and very safe as well. The views from apartment balcony are simply spectacular! Had no issue with parking or with security guards (as previous reviewer mentioned in the review). Loved the apartment and will definitely stay here again :) Strongly recommend for everyone specially if you travelling with little kids. Thanks so much Wanda for making our stay so comfortable :)"

  • There is something magical about Butler's that I can't put into words, you just have to experience

    "My husband and I stayed in Butler's House for over a week. We can not say enough wonderful things about this sanctuary where we could watch the monkeys play every evening by the pool, take walks to nearby hiking trails, and enjoying meals on the veranda overlooking the ocean. There is no air-conditioning, which was an early concern for me before we booked--as it turned out there was no concern for the lack of A/C. The elevation at Butlers allows for the beautiful ocean breezes to enter the home and it stays cool, even on hot days (I think A/C might even spoil the experience as renters may want to turn it on vs. enjoy the cool breezes). If you stay, ask Bernice to cook you some authentic West Indian meals, she's a wonderful cook. We spent countless hours in the pool--nets were provided to help keep the pool clean on the days it wasn't cleaned by someone. You can pick fresh fruit from the garden, including mangos and limes. Monkeys will play on the roof some mornings and are around the property--they provide ample entertainment and they are not intrusive in the least. Although the property is not located on a beach or next to resorts, everything is within a short driving distance (keep in mind that the most time any drive will take is about 20 - 25 minutes to the opposite end of the island) so most beaches and restaurants are within a 10 minute drive, so you will need a car. Butler's Village is great, Jimmy Buffet's famed Domino College is a short walk away. People wave to you everywhere you go, and Butler's Village I found particularly welcoming. It is not developed in any way, it is truly a quain caribbean village, which was perfect for us. If you're looking for a posh, slick type of atmosphere, this probably isn't the place for you. But if you prefer a true caribbean experience and want to completely unwind and relax, Butler's is for you. It is a comfortable home where you feel like you can curl up on the couch and lose yourself in a book, cook a gorgeous meal in the kitchen, or take a shower in the bathroom with the windows wide open, overlooking the garden and flowers and wildlife, the property is incredibly inviting, calming and private. You feel completely safe staying at Butlers as well as on the island of Nevis. There is something magical about this place that I can't put into words, you just have to experience it for yourself."

  • Spot On Expectations

    "We have used VRBO many years and High Blue Heaven proved to be exactly as advertised. Every detail listed was spot on. The home was spotless, clean, very well maintained, and provided us the perfect vacation location. The per-arrival communication with Robin allowed us to have exactly what we needed to begin our week and her continued assistance allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our week. Robin proved to be an island expert and someone we could turn to for anything. As the owner states, if you are one who needs air conditioning every awaken minute, High Blue Heaven is not for you. However, we fall into this category and we were very comfortable with the breeze and low humidity throughout our week. We bacame fans of Magen's Bay through our many cruises to St. Thomas and this home allowed us to see it first thing every morning and the last thing as the sun sets each evening. The five minute drive down the mountain to Magen's Bay was perfect. One thing we must say about this home is how centrally located it is. We were able to be in Charlotte Amalie in less than ten minutes and all the way to Red Hook on the east end of the island within 15-20 minutes. The home, the views, and the hospitality was by far the best we have ever experienced with numerous VRBO rentals. This home is a must if you are looking for peace and quiet for a week of relaxation."

  • the best food in the world!

    "I have NEVER eaten food the way Suzie makes it. The place is beautiful and I came during a low season. Even though we had rain and there were a few more mosquitos than usual, it was the BEST holiday ever! Mary was the easiest person to deal with and totally undersold the place. She needs to raise her prices! I will be returning again and again. I am already planning my next visit working out details with Mary now."

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.
