  • Great location, beautiful beach

    "Working with Sid was easy. he was very respectful of our privacy, but would respond any time we had a question. He has an absolutely beautiful villa at a reasonable price. We stayed in the larger villa on the middle floor. It was spotless when we arrived. We cooked in-home several times, and were not lacking for kitchen supplies for beans, rice, breakfasts, tacos, etc. Everything was there, and in good working order. He even had a colander. He gave us alternate directions to get to the Villa from SJO in order to avoid construction. He referred us to a pretty good tour operator who offered nice excursions for reasonable prices. His maid, Maritsa, was sweet and a great cook. She made us comida tipica one evening and it was REALLY really good. You should ask for her to cook for you. She was super timely with laundry - which meant we didn't have to pack as much! The villa itself is nestled in a hillside with a great view in the morning of the mountains. The pool below is a play-pool, which means that the water was quite warm in our week of travel. Still, after being beaten up by the ocean, it was very nice to just float and relax in the pool. The tropical landscaping around the property is very pretty. We saw a few interesting birds, and very pretty flowers. On our last morning, the howler monkeys gave us a show in the trees just outside the perimeter of the property. The walk to the beach is down a somewhat steep walk. You'll want to wear shoes. After being tossed around the ocean, the walk back up the hill can be a bit tiresome. It would be difficult for someone who lives a sedentary life, but just stop to breathe and you'll make it. Bring bug spray. Bring sunscreen. Bring shampoo. Sid provides shower soap, but it's what's available locally. The pix don't show bathrooms, but they were all very nice. Nice bath towels and linens. Beach towels were thin, but hey, dry off on the beach in the sun! The A/C worked just fine. In the hot week we were there, we opted to use it. Sid has you put down a cash deposit for damage. Just use the coasters to protect the finishes, and treat the place respectfully. He provides all the basic necessities and many nice amenites. Enjoy!!"

  • Wow!

    "What a great vacation home and location! Great beaches abound near by. Fantastic beach combing right in front. Spectacular views. Very comfortable. We were worried about the small pool. But it was perfect. Just a quick dip to cool off then back into a lounge chair. A bigger pool is unnecessary. Also close to great zip lining, fishing, cruises, and other adventures. Lots of great restaurants also close by; from pizza to lunch on the beach to fine french dining (Villa Deveena). Jarrod and Meaghan, the managers, are unbelievable hosts. The pictures don't do it justice. I couldn't recommend it more highly."

  • Best accommodation in Antigua!

    "I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful vacation home! The home exceeded our expectations in every way. It was so nice to enjoy the spaciousness of the home and the beautiful gardens that accompanied it. As you know, we were there with 2 other families who rented two of your other homes in the same complex. It was like we had our own resort to ourselves! All of us enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. This is a gem you have in Antigua. The pictures of the house are just like it is but you really must come here to see it youself. The view of the volcano was spectacular! The cleaning staff were unintrusive and very friendly. The house was always cleaned spotless! They even did a little ironing for us as the clothes we brought for the wedding just needed a light pressing. We will definitely stay there again when we return. I almost forgot.....Sophia operates a very exclusive and professional travel service for you and your guests. The level of service she provides is exceptional! She was always available and accommodating even at unreasonable last minute requests. I was having trouble renting a car and decided last minute to use her service. She provided me with a driver and van to go visit our friends who were in Monterrico. The extra cost (minimal and worth the extra dollars) to have someone else drive who knows the route not to mention the driving habits of locals, was well worth it. Our driver was knowledgable of the local area and was able to answer our many questions along the route to the beach. Same for our airport transfers...5 star service in new shuttle vans. Very impressive! This level of service is outstanding, it's appreciated and worth every penny. We did a lot of looking around at other houses when we were there and I can tell anyone who is wondering, you will not want to leave once you arive!"
