  • One of the most wonderful vacation we had in years

    "Many reviewers say that Pebble's is paradise. Well, I don't believe anything on earth can be like paradise but Pebble's is probably the closest thing there is to it. The cottage is perfectly located by a wonderful, almost desert beach, not far from the little town of Governor's harbor and not far from a few good restaurants. It is clean, comfortable and has everything we needed while we were there. As for Eleuthera, it is a quiet island with many beautiful beaches and a few nice places to visit. People are welcoming and friendly. One thing is sure: we will return."

  • Very Good Accommodations

    "Chalk up another successful VRBO rental. Ricardo and property manager were helpful and responsive; unit was better than advertised--new furniture that I'm sure will soon appear in Ricardo's pictures of the unit; great location, easy walk to dining, beach and easy in/out traveling around by car. Do not hesitate to stay here."

  • Relaxing -- felt like home

    "We would definitely recommend the Treeptop Villa. Each floor is air conditioned, the kitchen is modern and the master bedroom and bath is wonderful with a veranda off the bedroom. It was always quiet and Aaron was available to help us in any way to make our stay enjoyable. The beach is a very short walk across the lane and is a great place for walks. We enjoyed the restaurants in Placencia and enjoyed swimming at the beach at the harbor. We were not able to scuba dive because of colds but found enough other ways to enjoy this country. We visited a banana farm and the tour was very interesting. Be sure to have some fish meals while you are in Belize. We talked to several locals and learned about the country. The Treetop Villa is a very safe place to stay because of security at the gate."

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.
