  • Perfect Home away from home

    "Such a beautiful home, nicely decorated and full of amenities that owner (Milton) let's you use. He is very accommodating and attentive. I had a problem with the air conditioner and he responded quickly. It is in a great location, beautiful, secluded, gated community with golf trails. Resort environment without hustle and bustle of traffic. Would highly recommend this home and looking forward to returning again soon."

  • Paradise!

    "We recently called this rental home for a week while visiting Grace Bay. We have stayed on the beach on 3 different Hawaiian islands as well as various locations in California.. and have decided that the Caribbean is for us. Wow. The sand is like powder and the water is as clear as our pool. We went kayaking, sailing, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling. The weather was PERFECT, only one small sprinkle the day we arrived that lasted 5 minutes. I could go on about the beach but let's talk about the condo. It was a great home base for our stay. Located in a quiet complex right on the beach it was clean and well equipped. There was plenty of space for our family of 5. Read the guest book your first night, you will get lots of ideas for places to visit and things to do during your stay. Highly recommend this location and this rental (and now I want to go back!)"

  • Our Favorite Rental

    "Recently we had the pleasure of staying at Janet’s Palm Beach villa. We had a fabulous time and even got to the point where leaving felt as if we were leaving our very own home. This was our third Aruba rental and definitely our best. If anyone out there is having reservations about renting, do not worry. Janet's home is great. Everything in the home is exactly as you would expect it to be. The pictures do a great job of setting your expectations and the owners do an even better job of filling in any blanks. The attention and service provided by Janet was the best that we have experienced. Every email we sent was answered surprisingly fast with not only the requested information but also any related info she thought would be of use. She presented us with a clear timeline of when payments should be made and various other pieces of information (check in instructions, directions, etc.) We always rent a jeep because we like to explore but if you plan to stay in the Palm Beach area a vehicle is not a necessity. Both the beach and nightlife is within walking distance of the home as well as the bus route in case you want to venture out further. However, I will say if you plan on using the beach chairs and coolers available at the home walking may not be the best idea. After picking up the rental car we followed the directions and had no problem finding the house. We unloaded and unpacked before stocking up at Ling's. We picked up breakfast, lunch and snack foods for the week, along with beverages both alcohol and non. The home has everything you will need whether doing light snack prep or cooking a full blown meal. The coolers are great for Arashi sunsets. The home sleeps 7 or 8 but since we were a party of two the very comfortable bed in the Master was enough, but for one occasion when his snoring became too much of a nuisance he got to test out the bed in one of the other rooms. I was told it was also very comfortable. Each room has an air conditioner but we eventually decided they weren't necessary as the home stays cool at night and we were never there during the day. Great location, accommodations and property owners; Janet and her Villa have set the bar extremely high for any future rentals we may book. Then again unless this rental is unavailable I'm not sure we would have any reason to go with another rental. (This review was much longer and far more glowing but had to be edited due to VRBO only allowing 2500 characters)"

  • Outstanding house

    "We came to st thomas for my son's wedding and could not have chosen a better house. Calypso realty was fantastic to work with, ensured that all of our needs were met. This was one of the best appointed houses I have ever rented, and we have rented many. It was spacious, each couple had their own space and their own air conditioner. The pool was outstanding, easily accessible for my 86 yr old mother. The kitchen was outstanding and meals were easy and there was plenty of room to work. There was more than ample seating around the pool and we found ourselves outside most of the time. For those that like adventure, the track down to the ocean offered a great workout. Having maid service midweek just added to our relaxation. Cannot wait to go back for a week of pure rest and relaxation, without the hectic preparations for a wedding"

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.
