  • Perfect Place to Stay in St. John

    "This is our third time to visit St. John and all 3 times we have stayed at one of the owner's properties. We decided to stay in the cottage this time as it is closer to Cruz Bay and we aren't fans of driving on St. John at night. The cottage was EXCELLENT! It was extremely clean and well maintained. Lovely high quality linens and a well equipped kitchen. There are screened windows on all four sides to let in all the tropical breezes along with a ceiling fan in each room. In the evening, we sat on the large porch and watched the cruise ships make their way around the island. In the mornings, we sat on our porch, had breakfast, and watched the birds, an occasional iguana walk by as we enjoyed the peaceful, beautiful surroundings. This cottage met all of our needs and more importantly all of our wants! Easy to park, a central location for all the activities we were busy doing, and staying there made us feel like we were indeed on vacation. This is my perfect vacation home."

  • Great Value on Grace Bay

    "My husband and I stayed here for a week in June and had a great time. There are more high end resorts in provo but for the price, this place cannot be beat. Working with Michael was great. He answered e-mails quickly and was very helpful. The room at the Alexandra was very clean and had everything we needed. It was great that the amenities were included with this rental. We felt just like hotel guests but without the housekeeping services. I would recommend this rental for anyone looking for a great value on the nicest stretch of Grade Bay."

  • Beautiful Views with Fantastic Snorkeling

    "This is a great location! I don't have anything negative to say because I will return with my family. We are avid snorkelers. I rented a car, and we snorkeled other spots as well. We didn't eat out much because we like to cook. We went to the main supermarket. I was impressed with the foods they had like American foods. The owner sent great directions, and Ben, Peter the caretaker's son, greeted us before we could get out of the car. Peter and Ben will help you with any problems and directions. Thankfully, we didn't have any problems. We only cooled two bedrooms and bathrooms at night and in the early mornings. Our electricity bill was around $63 for 7 days. I thought that was good. It was nice and cool. The island breezes cooled the middle of the condo enough for us. There was an air conditioner you could use for the middle. We had plenty of clean towels. No one had mentioned the condo had a safe. I was glad we had a place for our extra cash. You can use American money on the island. Just take smaller bills like twenties or less. This was my second trip to Curacao, and I preferred this instead of an all inclusive. I was not there for parties but snorkeling and good fellowship. The locals are friendly, and it's a safe island to rent a car. I have been several times to Mexico and Jamaica. You can't beat the snorkeling in Curacao so I don't know if I will ever go to other Caribbean islands again. Another good thing is Curacao is not in the Hurricane Belt and doesn't get much rain to spoil a trip. I just returned and am ready to go back. We met a couple who told us about Captain Goodlife at Santa Cruz. The captain will take you to a cave to snorkel and then a black sand beach with a sunken ship to snorkel for $20 per person. Well worth it. The trip lasts around two hours. Santa Cruz is not far from Playa Lagun. Sooo peaceful and beautiful!!!!"

  • Perfect Place for Family of Four

    "My family just came back from a wonderful vacation in St. John. Aside from the beaches being gorgeous, this house was perfect for our needs. The photos accurately represent what is offered. The place is extremely clean, well stocked with the basic necessities like paper towel, toilet paper, dish towels, etc. and then they owners to out of their way with nice surprises like OJ, milk, etc. to get you started the first day. They also supplied nice beach chairs, beach toys, towels and coolers. The owners (Terry and Tom) were very responsive to our needs when we needed help with the internet and coffee maker. The couples lives really close to the property and is there to answer any questions you that arise. My husband and I hiked the trails every day from the house. The views from the deck are beautiful (you can see St. Croix way off) and the pool area is great for sunning and reading.The drive in town is approximately 6-7 minutes. Once we mastered driving on the hand side of the road . . .getting into town was easy. The owners gave us some good tips on where what beaches to see and what hikes to do. You will hear roosters in the morning . . .as we slept with the windows open - so be prepared to be awake early or sleep with windows shut. We ate out at Cafe Rosa (really good), the Ocean Grill (mongoose junction - pricey but good) and the restaurant right across frmo the ferry - all very good. I would NOT recommend Morgan's Mango - wait staff was indifferent - and they were out of everything. Overall our vacation could not have been better. Loved the house and would stay here again - by the way ages of our kids - 5 and 12 . . . ."

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.
