  • PARADISE

    "If there was a word that could define Paradise and Serenity as one then this property would be it. The unbelievable views of the ocean and home are not justified in the photos online. If you are in need of a disconnection from everyday life then you have found the right place. There is nothing more beautiful. The beaches (Shack, Crashboat) are wonderful, the pool is amazing, and the living accommodations are first class. The neighborhood and surroundings always felt safe and accommodations (groceries, gas, restaurants etc.) were a stone throw away. Nicky was a blessing and was always there when needed. I left for Puerto Rico with a girlfriend and came back with a fiancé. Truly a special proposal (at the gazebo) and memories that will be imprinted forever. After staying at the house and visiting Puerto Rico, we can honestly say that we will probably never vacation anywhere else on earth. Thank you Matt for opening up your home to us. Looking forward to staying there again next year. Thank you and God Bless you. B & L"

  • Home away from home!

    "We absolutely enjoyed our stay in Barbados. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and checked up on us to make sure that we were ok and had all that we needed. The first thing that stands out about this vacation home is that it's surrounded by a beautiful garden! There is a parking space for a car if you choose to rent a vehicle. The interior is very clean, comfortable and cozy. We loved that it's self contained and we could make our own meals if so desired. Having the laundry facilities at our disposal was great! Location, location, location; within walking distance to the beach, grocery, bars, restaurants and one of the south coast's favourite spots....St. Lawrence Gap! I highly recommend this vacation spot to anyone who's looking for a totally relaxed time in Barbados. C & D"

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.
