Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Friar's hill was everything we hoped it could be. The property was very clean, well equipped and in a great location, close to everything. As we spent 2 weeks there, having a washing machine was wonderful. The property also had a hairdryer, ironing board and iron, air conditioning and fans in both bedrooms. Although you really didn't need the air conditioners as the house had a great breeze once you opened up the front and back doors.

The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful and make you feel very comfortable.

We have visited Antigua many times over the past 15 years and this was the best place we have rented to date. Great value for the price.

Walking to get groceries and to the beach would be quite a trek but certainly possible. We rented a car as we like to tour the island.

I would not hesitate to rent this property again on my next visit to Antigua or recommend it to friends and family.

The only negative comment I can make is that not being able to park our rental car inside the gate was a bit of an inconvenience.

Other than that, I give this property a 9 out of 10.

Friar's Hill Guest House

  • 5 of 5

I just completed my 2nd week at the property since the end of April. It was perfect for my adult daughters and me. The couple who lives on the property seem like part of my family now.

I cannot think of one thing that we needed that was not provided either trip. It was the best value for my money on the island.

If you do not like to walk for about 30 minutes to the grocery store or the beach, then you may want to rent a car. We walked everywhere and rode the local bus to St John's.

I have already recommended the house to my daughter's friends at the American University of Antigua Medical School for their families when they come to visit.

We only were in Antiqua for one nights stay while in transit. Price was right. Close to some cafes and grocery stores. Check in was at four,however they let us drop off our luggage early.

Would stay there again!

Very good and clean ideally situated on the island

  • 5 of 5

everything was fine with the property we also liked the gate which added to the security the air conditioner in the second bedroom was not working but this did not cause a problem as the other one worked fine and almost cooled the entire property

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this cottage was excellent. The cottage is well designed and equipped with all of the amenities we needed. It would have been great to have our own gate lock as we did feel a bit guilty waking our landlord at 2am in the morning to park inside. Overall great experience and definitely rebook and recommend. The pictures are not as beautiful as the actual property!

Nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I booked the house and we were pleased with the overall appearance and quality of the home. However, the description of the property didn't state that the owners lived right next door. The owners seemed very nice but we were looking for a bit more privacy and seclusion. Would be a great place to stay if you aren't looking for privacy. Also, we were given a key to the cottage but the owner maintained the entrance and exit of the property fence gate, which made me feel obligated to be on property at an early hour in the evenings or else we had to park outside of the gate on the roadside.
