    "I have lived across the street from this awesome home and just wanted to let people know how great the location is. If your looking for a quiet place to chill with family or just friends you will find it here. Close to the best beach's and shopping. Beautiful homes in the area make it safe to walk any place. One of the few places in Aruba with paved roads...It takes me just a few minutes to walk to the beach and the Ritz carlton... I dont know the owners but know the area... I hope to rent it for my extended family in the futher.."

  • Serenity

    "According to the dictionary the word "serenity" is a noun. It means the state or quality of being serene, calm, or tranquil; sereneness. This description describes the home, Serenity in White Sound, Elbow Cay, Bahamas perfectly. Our family discovered this beautiful rental home through VRBO a couple of summers ago. We have been visiting Hopetown with our three daughters ever since they were little girls, now they are all teenagers. Our family has rented Serenity for a couple of weeks each summer for several summers now. As soon as you arrive on the property, either by boat or by golf cart, you know that you have arrived to a magical place. We love that the house is at the end of the point overlooking White Sound. It has amazing views of the water from many vantage points on the property. The grounds of the property are very well maintained with lush, tropical flora. The expansive dock is very new and in great shape with easy access to docking your boat. There are also three kayaks on the dock to go exploring the surrounding waters. As you make your way up to the house, you might pass the pool which is always one of our favorite ways we end our days from being out on the water. There is also a very large outdoor shower which makes it convenient to clean up. Upon entering the home with its multi-tiered decking, you will see the beautiful, European style kitchen with its high end appliances. The décor is spectacular with hand painted flatware and whimsical cutlery. It makes cooking a breeze. There is even an herb garden on the property that you can get herbs from. The way the house is layed out, it is perfect for our family, each daughter gets her own bedroom and then they share a bathroom. The master bedroom/bathroom is a place to relax and take refuge in. One of the things that we love about this house are the views. We love to watch the sunrise from the deck or air-conditioned cabana with our coffee and we especially love to watch the extraordinary sunsets with a glass of wine. Because of the location of this home, you have amazing views no matter what time of day it is. We also love the close proximity to some of the restaurants that are on the south end of the island. The owners of Serenity are truly amazing. They make sure that everything is in order for your vacation. They really take care of their property and want you to enjoy their home. We highly recommend renting Serenity. It is our favorite home to rent in Hopetown."

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.
