  • Fabulous Vacation - Time Flew By

    "We just returned; what a great vacation. Everything was as expected and more. First time to DR and will definitely return. The villas, amenities, activities, beach, and easy access to everything you'd want or need made for a perfect experience. The villa was clean and very well apportioned. We were able to walk to just about everything. Having had some Spanish language background was helpful. The people were very friendly and welcoming. We spent most of our time on the beach, which was not crowded like the resorts in the vicinity. There was a very nice amount of privacy in and around the villa. Had been on several cruises in the past and were looking for something new and different. The experience and accommodations met our expectations perfectly. Restaurants in and around the area were all very good and affordable. Chicho and Morena were excellent. All the info provided by Brad before the trip was very helpful. Looking forward to a return visit."

  • 110% Satisfaction

    "Our group of 4 adults stayed here for a week in early January. Everything was beyond our expectations. The condo is extremely comfortable and you can't beat the view from the huge sundeck. The colour of the water and the extremely easy access to it was fantastic. Just walk down the stairs or off the pier in front of the condo and you're there. One day we were even visited by a stingray. If we wanted to catch a sunset we just walked to other side of the complex. All the amenities worked perfectly and Barbara the property manager was very knowledgeable and friendly. She can arrange almost anything for you. We were going to rent a car for part of our stay but we found ourselves happily using the jitney service as they came by frequently and we loved the whole experience as each driver has his own style of music so it was always an adventure. We did enjoy the Poop Deck restaurant but our favourite was "Spritz" which is a short walk to the Olde Towne Marina Plaza in Sandyport. We did one organized tour to Clifton Heritage National Park which was well worth the money - a great history tour followed by a hot lunch delivered to our private beach. After seeing other parts of New Providence Island, we were still so happy that we chose Delaporte as our place to stay. It's a fantastic location and from what we could tell, this condo is the best situated one in the complex. Did I mention that the view from the deck is amazing?"

  • Great apartment!

    "The place was really great - just as advertised, really well laid out and thoughfully equipped. Dora and Phillipe are great to deal with. For getting around the Island - figure out the Minibus - Taxis are VERY expensive. Hilda's Windsor Castle in Simpson Bay is the Bomb! and Elvis at Sky's the Limit in Grand Case - big thumbs up for local, or "LoLo" food. Take cash if you're exploring the island - not all machines work. The French side is more Lonely Planet style traveler - bit more earthy. Check out SO French near the apartment. It lives up to the name. Some of the best Foie Gras I've had on 3 continents. The walk up the hill? Sure, it can be a bit of a thing if you're sunstroked and tired at the end of the day. But truly, it wasn't that bad. If it weren't for that hill, I'd have gotten fat with all the good French food I ate. For god's sake remember to wear sunscreen and a hat, and like anyone who's read Hitchiker's Guide to the Universe knows, know where your towel is. They cost 4 Euros on Orient beach. I know where mine is: I left it on Dora and Phillipe's railing :D"

  • Your search ends here! This house is amazing.

    "My family of four (including 13- and 9-year olds) enjoyed a blissful week-long stay at Villa Papillon. Hosts Linda and Mike are very friendly and informative, and happy to help with advice and recommendations. They are close by, so you don't have to worry about inattentive or nonexistent homeowners not returning phone calls. But they will offer you your privacy. Linda cheerfully met us at a supermarket after we stocked up on supplies, and drove us through the twists and turns (and inclines!) of the roads on the mountains of St. Thomas. The gorgeous home is located in a gated community in Peterborg, which is on the peninsula that encloses Magen's Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (5 minutes away - no exaggeration). She and Mike have maintained the property nicely: the beauty of the views can not be overstated. The home is just like the pictures, perhaps even more beautiful because you cannot appreciate the comfortable layout in the photos. The home is remote and peaceful, and we didn't hear or even see neighbors unless we took out the binoculars. We grilled every day while still being able to be together in the pool/hot tub area on deck. We found a well-stocked kitchen with top of the line appliances. Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms, though a bit dated, were clean and very functional with ample storage. The home is decorated like a real home, not like a soulless rental. We went to Magen's Bay almost every day (we swam with a giant turtle there), but also made trips to Sapphire and Coki bays for better snorkeling. Be aware: parking is sketchy at Coki, and the surrounding areas are sort of rundown. But fish and coral are plentiful. When we return to USVI, we will stay here again. We didn't even have to worry about mosquitos- the gentle breezes keep them away. Thanks LInda and Mike for a wonderful week!"

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.
