  • Lovely spacious apartment

    "We loved Antigua and the apartment was great, high ceilings, big spacious rooms, ceiling fans and lovely and cool. There is Aircon but we don't use that so we didn't try it out. The area was great for us, close to Jabberwock Beach, where we wanted to be. It is not amongst other holiday rentals, all local's bungalows around it, which was lovely for us as that is what we like but it was a bit worrying when we first drove down there as one of the neighbours has, what looks like, a car breaking business. The road is potholed and looks a bit run down but that's just first impressions. All the roads in Antigua are potholed! This is not a hotel room, so the fixtures are lived in, we had our fair share of power cuts and although the locals are very quiet (they start work very early out there so no noise after about 9pm) there are 4 or 5 dogs tethered in a local garden which barked a lot, mostly out of pure boredom I imagine, and the other locals seemed to have outside dogs too, which they are obviously used to the barking as no attempt is made to shut them up, plus lots of cockerels crowing at all hours (we loved the cockerels, amazing to wake to). Linden was great, he was on site most days and so answered any questions and recommended places to go. The Antiguan people are mega friendly, they love talking to you, are helpful and smiley but in a sincere way. You do get some hawkers on the hotel beaches but they are happy polite people, some of whom are just as happy to chat for a few minutes if you don't want to look at their items for sale. The food out there is very expensive, everything is imported and the cost passed to the supermarkets and so the shoppers. So be prepared to be shocked, £7 for 6 apples, £8 for a shop pizza. Chicken is cheap so we ate lots of that! I would recommend this apartment, the balcony at the back was used all the time. It is a great place to stay but only if you are prepared to live amongst the locals. Supermarkets are not far, but you will need a car for the holiday. There are little buses everywhere but we didn't look into that. We explored, pretty much every beach you can get to in a hire car (some roads are a bit too rough). Stingray City was brilliant and worth the money, but find out when the cruise ships are not in and plan your trips to that and Shirley Heights on no ship days to avoid hundreds of coach trippers joining you."

  • Perfect!

    "I was hesitant that pictures would be better than the actual property. I was pleasantly surprised to find I was very wrong. The villa was perfect! The views were amazing. We enjoyed watching the sunsets from the pool and patio. Our family really enjoyed our week there, it was by far one of my favorite vacations. Exceptional Villas arranged for us to get picked up at the airport and when we got to our Villa the car rental company had our car ready for us. We were met by a representative who gave us the tour of the property and got us settled in. Diner reservations were made on our behalf too!. We did not miss any of the amenities of a resort. I highly recommend Tamarind Hills and Exceptional Villas."

  • The property exceeded our expectations

    "This was a very enjoyable experience. Everything about the property was great! Our stay in Antigua was centered around the accommodation which was, in every way, extremely satisfying. The listing description is accurate, including amenities and service. The property was clean and well maintained. We would certainly recommend this property to friends and relatives. If we ever return to Antigua, we will certainly stay at Loblolly Villa again."

  • Fantastic villa

    "Our family (seven people across three generations) spent the week from Xmas Eve to New Year's Eve at Villa Azura. It was a fantastic holiday. Azura is a perfect house with an amazing layout for relaxing and enjoying an indoor/outdoor life. The walls of the house seem to disappear upon request. We enjoyed all of the amenities of a modern house while feeling as if we were outside/poolside the entire time. Azura is perfectly equipped and thoughtfully designed and supplied. Mitzie (the housekeeper) was very friendly and attentive. The location is fantastic, although a bit remote from the "hot spots" on the island (it may be something of a stretch to consider Antigua to have "hot spots" in the nature of Mexico or Hawai'i). We made frequent trips to Half Moon Bay (our favorite beach in Antigua), which is about a 25-minute drive. We also went into English Harbor for a few meals - also about 25-30 minutes drive. The east (Atlantic) side of Antigua seemed a bit more breezy, but that just kept the bugs away. All in all, we could not have been more pleased with our holiday and Amanda and James were fantastic hosts. A few observations from our trip - you need a car, but don't make it a nice one, as the roads on Antigua are brutal. A sailing charter on the Caribbean side is a terrific day out - we booked the Jabberwocky in Jolly Harbour and had the boat to ourselves with the husband/wife crew - just amazing. We would highly recommend Villa Azura and Antigua for anyone who is happy with a holiday that is not centered around a "commercial" nightlife."
