  • Great place to relax

    "Stayed for 2 weeks, looking for quiet area and the comforts of home - villa was exactly as promised, very clean with a well equipped kitchen and lots of towels/linens. Air conditioning works great. Villa location is in the middle of the complex, not more than 2 minutes to the pool and beach. Both the pool and beach are fabulous - clean, pristine and beautiful. 3 beach bars within 5 minutes walk, and this is the closest villa complex to the stores. Great value, great place, we would return."

  • Amazing Stay, Amazing place

    "Traveling to Anguilla was an incredible experience and staying at the Bellavista only added to my satisfaction. Ingrid and her staff were amazing people who made me feel as though I was at home, with friendly smiles and going above and beyond to ensure my trip was nothing short of unforgettable. The view and the breeze from the balcony was simply perfect, no other words could describe that experience. My only problem with visiting again is my unwillingness to leave the Bellavista."

  • Terrific stay!

    "My husband and I stayed here for a 20th anniversary trip to St. John. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place. Great kitchen that had everything we needed to cook at the villa. Very comfortable bed and terrific bathroom. The bedroom had a/c that worked very well and the living room/kitchen was kept cool with the cool breezes. We loved the indoor/outdoor shower and the great views. And I can't say enough about how helpful Terri was. My husband has food and skin allergies. She was very helpful in finding out which stores carried the milk he could have as well as making sure our linens were washed in perfume-free detergent. I would definitely stay here again and recommend Pink Horses highly!"

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.
