  • Private little paradise

    "My husband and I stayed here with our 4 year old daughter for two weeks. It was a perfect little family getaway. The house is seculded so it was a nice and quiet break from our usual tourist traps. My daughter loved walking down to the beach and and over to the horse farm just a few properties over. The house was very basic, but was clean and stocked well. We did our own cooking and had everything we needed (except WIFI but you can get that at restaurants and cafes downtown). We rented a golf cart which was definately needed to get down town, Beautiful island. Friendly people. Can't wait to go back."

  • Wonderful Vacation!!

    "We had a group of 9 adults staying at the house and we all were VERY pleased with the accommodations! When choosing this house, we had narrowed our search down to 3 homes and voted as a group. Part of the reason we choose this house was having on site staffing of Alfred & Diana. Not a mistake!! They were fabulous!! We started with a welcome dinner on the Saturday we arrived, which consisted of lobster tails, fresh fish & chicken! What a spread that tasted as good as it looked. Would highly recommend having Diana cook for your party. We took the Tropic Ferry over from the airport as recommended - but going over we had pretty rough seas that made the trip long, cold and very choppy. Doing it again, we all would have chosen taking the plane instead. You can't depend on the weather/seas but at least flying you'd cut the commute time down to 20 minutes getting to the island. We also went snorkeling with Seaduced By Belize (Alfred recommendation) and couldn't have been happier! Top notch company focused on customer service!! We had all levels of experience and we all felt taken care of. Never had an empty glass of rum punch or beer, and the ceviche was awesome! They even went to the effort of getting some NA beer for a member of our group! We rented 1 golf cart for the group for a week (Alfred took care of this for us) which worked out great. Some took water taxis to town while others hopped on the cart and while in town grabbed some groceries/beer. 2 doors down from the house is a great place to eat/drink - Rojo! As a group we went twice and again, everybody was happy! Having a house phone to take with you was icing on the cake staying at BajaMar! Alfred is the first person listed, so you're never more than a touch away from him. It's always a little nerve racking picking a vacation home to rent, especially for a larger group of people. Don't worry a minute longer about renting BajaMar. I rely on reviews in making my decisions, so I don't write that statement lightly. Cheers!"

  • Family Holiday 2014

    "My family and I stayed at this villa for a total of 3 week in July/August 2014. The location is in a quiet neighbourhood within close proximity to some very good beaches, shops, transport etc. We found the villa's description and facilities as advertised and was not disappointed. It was breezy and well maintained. The air-con in the bedrooms were much appreciated. We accepted the owner's kind offer of airport pick up which we also used on our returned. All in all, we had a nice holiday and would recommend this villa to anyone."

  • Wow, wow, wow!!!

    "We just returned from staying at Seagrapes for 1 week. Before we even left home, we felt well taken care of by the owners, Tony & Sheila. They contacted us via email and phone several times. They arranged our airport transfer to Seagrapes, a man named Norval, who they hand-picked for us. He was fantastic. We used him several more times throughout the week. Upon arrival to the house we were greeted in the driveway by the staff, who had genuine welcoming smiles on their faces. They immediately set the tone of "you're on vacation, let us do the work!" Robbie had drinks ready for us, Laura Lee showed us the house, and Blossom brought fresh towels out to the pool, all within 10 minutes of us arriving. Kurline made us a pasta dish for lunch, and as I pushed away from the table, I realized that it was the first time that I felt TRULY RELAXED while on a vacation. The staff at Seagrapes is PHENOMENAL. I cannot say enough about each individual. Kurline's meals were a treat. The food she made was simply delicious. My children, who usually eat burgers or chicken fingers and french fries while on vacation, gobbled up every meal. Kurline spoke with me on day 2 to find out our likes and dislikes. She made the best steak that I have ever had. It was a pleasure to interact with Robbie and Laura Lee, both of whom have a gentle and kind way about them. Laura Lee noticed that my son's face was sunburned. She went outside and cut fresh aloe and cooled it in the fridge so that we could apply it to his burn. Robbie taught my son how to fold napkins for the table. He took us on a walk to a beautiful cove where we collected shells and sand dollars. George the gardner, was discreet and always had kind words to say about my family. Blossom, discreet in her own way, made sure that our living quarters and laundry were perfect. Tony & Sheila checked in several times during our stay to make sure that we were happy. Tony even met us at the Good Hope Estate and gave us a tour of the amazing property. I am a self proclaimed homebody. Usually by day 3 of a vacation, I've seen it all and I'm ready to go home. NOT this time. I was so sad to leave and cannot wait to return. 1 week was not enough. There was so much for all of us (ages 66, 42, 41, 11, 9, 5) to do on the property... snorkeling on the reef, playing on the beach, kayaking, SUP, the pool, badminton, tennis, basketball, tree swing, hammock, delicious meal after meal, and exploring the property's flora and fauna. PURE BLISS."

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.
