Notes:

New for WINTER 2016/2017 Although all our cottages are really breezy, have extra powerful aircooling fans inside them and also never having had any comments made to us so far that we should install aircon units, some guests prior to booking have requested Air conditioning is an 'absolute must' for them and have expressed that they would be willing to pay for the optional extra of an air conditioning unit throughout their stay. I have thought carefully about this investment as I try to keep the booking costs down per reservation as much as possible for our Pinkshackers and also would like to remain as eco friendly as we possibly can, but despite this, I have acted and on this and have now installed air conditioning in some of our cottages. Stilll being of an eco friendly mind even though you may opt to pay the daily surcharge for A/C I would request that the units are not left on all day if you are not present in the cottage and out all day and should I notice that a unit has been left running by accident and you have gone out for the day I will switch off the unit to save energy, I do hope this sounds reasonable, because I want my Pinkshackers to be as comfortable as possible throughout their stay. Air conditioning available as an optional extra currently at 15USD per night. Any feedback about this optional extra is welcomed as this is new to us and we want to get it right.

Owner info

About the owner: My name is Sonja and I am the owner of the Pinkshack Studio Cottage, here in Five Islands on the peninsular of Antigua just a short drive away from St Johns the Capital.. I live onsite with my small adorable friendly fluffy friends, who are always looking forward to making new friends with our visitors... If you are not sure you would like to interact with my doggies on any level please don't worry they do have their very own tropical garden, and can kept separately from the guest areas and actually they are just very happy doing their own thing... Over the last five years I have been developing my Pinkshack property and the landscaping of the Garden around it.. Pinkshack Studio truly offers a wonderful mixture of exoitic flowers, many varieties of Palms and many wonderful fruit trees, we often are able to offer our visitors the fruits and provisions that grow in the Pinkshack Gardens.. I have focused very much on the types of flowers and planting tropical fruit trees in the garden as the aim was to attract many species of tropical birds, if you love a private tropical setting with humming birds whizzing by and other species of tropical birds and love to expand your knowledge about the places you visit or even just enjoy your days on our fantastic 5 * Beaches here in Five Islands you will love staying with me here at the Pinkshack... I first travelled to Antigua as a tourist myself in 1996 and fell in love with the Island and having been a keen traveller in ym younger years I decided that one day I would live abroad and so here I am!! I can offer a wealth of knowledge for you to have a wonderful time and make the most of your stay here on Antigua, many who have already stayed with me here have loved staying in the Pinkshack, it's a very friendly and easy going atmosphere and the main emphasis when you stay with me is that you have a great holiday :) I hope you decide to book the Pinkshack and meet me here in Five Islands

Why the Owner Chose St John, Antigua and Barbuda:
Pinkshack Studio offers a unique self catering Holiday experience at an extremely competitve price... There are very few other properties on Antigua which offer the exceptional standard of accomodation in this price category.. Whilst here you will receive second to none advice about how to get the very best from your holiday.. Pinkshack is only minutes walking distance from some of Antigua's finest white sand beaches, you will be absolutely spoiled for choice of which of the white powdery beaches to enjoy during your stay... We offer a very warm friendly and down to earth holiday experience... I chose this area of Antigua as it's history is very unique to the rest of Antigua and even today to a very large extent it is still a strong rural community, Five Islands also offers a wealth of the best beaches Antigua has to offer, the nearest of these are only a short stroll away ..

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The unique benefits of Five Islands are the many 5* beaches, rolling hills views and free roaming animals such as cows, horses, donkeys, sheep, goats, chickens and ducks.. The friendly community of Five Islands is also very appealling, most times I do feel as though I live on another Island other than Antigua as we are very rural, Five Islands is on the peninsula of Antigua, yet only a five minute drive away from St Johns Capital....
