My partner and I stayed for 10 nights and were absolutely thrilled with our stay. Karol and Merve are absolute gems! They are perfect hosts, happy to help in any way they can while being careful in respecting your privacy. The grounds are spotless and cottage was perfect for a romantic get away. A car is helpful if you want to to dine out, shop or tour beaches if you are just wanting R&R you will love resting on the porch with breath taking ocean views and watching the beautiful birds! We have beautiful memories of our stay!!
Amazing Place and Amazing Owners
We recently returned from Karol and Merv's place and we simply fell in love with it! The views are amazing! The cottages are clean and beautifully decorated with everything you need. We enjoyed every evening sitting on the expansive deck just taking in the views, the landscape and the breezes. We honestly could not have imagined a more ideal location! The pool and pool house are perfect! You are just minutes from beautiful beaches, great restaurants and a grocery store for necessities. Best of all, as you will read in so many reviews, are Karol and Merv. They are the kindest people and we enjoyed every opportunity to chat with them and learn more about them and how they have built such an amazing place. They were absolutely wonderful and helpful to us. We are already scheduled to return. They get our highest recommendation! Lastly, the island of Antigua exceeded our expectations! The beaches we visited were just gorgeous, the terrain is stunning and the people were all so kind and welcoming. One of our favorite trips to the Caribbean to date!
Charming hosts and breathtaking views!
We’re not too much in favor of cruises or all-inclusives and like to meet an interesting person or two, both local and from afar when we travel.
In all these respects Carol and Merv’s Stoney Hill Cottages suited us down to the ground. First, the three separate cottages, which are essentially roomy studios with immense wrap-around balconies that pose stunning views of the cove, the turquoise sea and Montserrat in the distance.
A short walk down the hill finds you in the mutual cabana and bar area where one can barbecue and join Carol and other guests (as one wishes) with the pool and its stunning view. She and Merv are exceptional hosts; they know when to leave one alone and when to step in with good suggestions.
We didn’t rent a car, but had a driver for one or two trips, and joined fellow guests for a sail around Antigua and a meal at a nearby gourmet restaurant. Otherwise, we were quite content to spend a day on our balcony, just appreciating how fortunate we are. This was brought into sharp focus when we made the trip to Barbuda, still largely decimated by Hurricane Irma. What a magnificent people! They are spiritually uplifting.
When it comes to a journey that meets our liking, Stoney Hill Cottages fit the bill. Judging by the number of return visitors, it suits many others, too.
The perfect vacation!
My husband and I just got back from our stay with Karol & Merve at Stoneyhill Studios. We didn't want to leave. We had an absolutely fantastic vacation – we left our perfect little apartment and Antigua incredibly relaxed and extremely happy people. Our studio apt served us so well for 9 nights. When Karol showed us into our unit I lost count how many times we said "WOW" when we saw the view from our balcony. Well, "balcony" isn't the right word – it's a HUGE L-shaped wrap around covered piece of heaven with loungers, a hammock and a dining room table. With stunning views which we never tired of.
The studios are spotlessly clean. And well equipped. The pool & bar/BBQ area is a fabulous gathering place at the end of the afternoon for a chilly beverage before making dinner.
Stoneyhill is quiet and peaceful – yet close to several beautiful beaches. Our biggest decision each day was which beach we wanted to go to. The well stocked grocery store is a short drive away.
What a truly special place this is and Karol and Merve are delightful and considerate hosts. We are so grateful for the fantastic, and well needed vacation. Thank you. We will be back!

Paradise in Antigua
We stayed Jan 15 to 20, 2019 and absolutely LOVED the place. The cottages are very clean, comfortable and perfectly situated with sweeping views of the hillside and sea. We enjoyed our coffee on the HUGE balcony in the morning while being visited by cute, friendly birds and watched the sunsets there in the evening. There is also a lovely pool & bar area. Just so much positive, I can't list it all.
The place is quiet and just a few minutes drive to anything you could want.. beautiful beaches, supermarket, restaurants, etc.
And on top of all those wonderful things, there is Karol and Merv. <3 Karol arranged a car rental for us, airport transfers, a local phone to use while there and really made us feel like family. :o) Really amazing people.
Thank you Karol & Merv! We can't wait to return!

Thankyou, it was our pleasure to share our small piece of paradise with you, so happy you got to relax...looking forward to seeing you both in the not to distant future...all the best..Karol & Merve..xx
We had a wonderful time staying here. The cottages are lovely, clean and have everything that you need. Karol and Merv are great hosts and cannot do enough for you. Even offered to arrange collection from the airport and car rental. They lent me a local cell phone to use during our stay, they played lovely relaxing music by the pool bar, they lent us a mask and snorkel so that I could join in with my girls. We made full use of the pool and poolside BBQ which made life easier feeding my 2 fussy eaters. Karol gave us some good advice on places to go and places to eat. The cottages are set in a lovely quiet and tranquil location so very relaxing. Beautiful beaches on their doorstep, Darkwood beach has a lovely big inflatable water park and not far from Jolly Harbour and the supermarket. All in all a lovely stay and would definitely look to stay again in the future. Thank you for a lovely stay. Tracey, Maddi and Thaila
