Recent Caribbean property reviews

  • great location

    "We enjoyed the house, and the short swim to the great spot for viewing fish. We also enjoyed some of the opportunities in the neighborhood - Bistro de Paris, Pizza, Between2buns, Sea Cow Snorkeling, Eden Beach Caribe Watersports, Yellow Submarine. The toaster oven wasn't working, but this is a minor problem. Its unfortunate Bonaire seems to have had an increase in petty thefts and crime. The Playa Lechi wireless internet connection seemed weak at some times."

  • Wonderful Condo

    "The condo is absolutely wonderful and is perfectly located in St. John. Easy to walk into Cruz Bay to enjoy the restaurants, bars, and shopping and an easy drive or taxi ride to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Having a dedicated parking spot is definitely a plus, as parking in Cruz Bay can be a bit tricky. The condo itself is beautiful and well maintained, with everything you could possibly need from coolers and beach chairs to pots and pans. We had a great stay and I highly recommend Beautiful Morning!"

  • Comfortable, Convenient

    "My husband & I spent our 30th anniversary in this little gem! 11 nights we were able to be there, and it was worth every penny. Because I knew the island prior to arrival, I was concerned the road close to it would be too noisy, but it wasn't. The photos do not do it justice, except for the photos from the porch. Every morning and evening we watched sailboats go by! Because there was AC, our sleeping was good. Very clean & comfortable, and the owners very accommodating. Cooking our own meals in the well-stocked kitchen was a plus for us, too, and having our evening meals on the covered porch was excellent. You won't be disappointed!"

  • "We rented this house for 2 weeks last July. It was spacious, spotless and the bathrooms were just renovated. It is situated in a great location (the Paradisus Resort area). We hit Luquillo Beach as soon as we unpacked (minutes away), and the pool the following day. The second floor has a balcony were El Yunque can be seen, and where I enjoyed my morning coffee. Restaurants and stores were nearby. We felt safe and comfortable in this house. No doubt-we'll be renting this property again."

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.
