  • A Perfect Place

    "Just back from My Brothers House. This is the perfect place to go if you want to stay in a traditional Antiguan house in a small local village overlooking the ocean.The house is pretty with a lovely garden and although some may say a little worn it is comfortable , clean and has everything you need.The view from the balcony is to die for. We arranged a pick up from the airport by a local man who was just charming, friendly and helpfull. He stopped at the supermarket so we could get supplies. Jenny met us at the house, what a delightfull lady. You really do need a car but busses are cheap and regular. There are beach bars and restaurants within walking distance. The beaches are beautifull and you can hire sun chairs. Do go to Shirley Heights on Sunday evening, well worth the visit.In some reviews people have commented about the dogs barking. They really dont bark that much and the sound of the cockerals crowing is quite nice. Remember you are in a local village which mostly is quiet peacefull and safe. We have stayed on the island before in various resorts but when we return we will be staying here again. This was one of the best holidays and we have travelled a lot. Stay here, you will not be dissappointed i can assure you. we will be going back next year. Thankyou Jenny"

  • This is a restful, little piece of heaven on earth.

    "If you are the kind of frequent Caribbean visitor who shuns the cruise ship hordes and seeks solitude and tranquil beauty, this is your place. We spent ten lovely days at Sapodilla -- only ten minutes' drive from the bustling life of English Harbour with all its "yachties" and the UNESCO heritage site at Nelson's Dockyard, the cottage is nonetheless a secret garden with beautiful flowering trees and bushes abounding, its own swimming pool, squadrons of hummingbirds and Antiguan yellow finches plus delightful hosts who furnish the cottage with all the necessities of a short-term stay (e.g. a kitchen well stocked with initial supplies upon arrival). The restfulness is exquisite. You'll need a car for daily excursions and dinner expeditions. Don't be put off by the bumpy access road -- dodging potholes is Antigua's national sport! We have stayed at about twenty places in the Caribbean and this cottage takes first prize for charm and restfulness. (If you want a small resort with similar tastefulness and charm try Nisbet Plantation on nearby Nevis.) The categories below hardly capture the allure of the place -- this is a destination for people who want to find tranquility below the surface of a place, to ease into its nature and avoid the banality of so much of today's prepackaged tourism. We will return!"

  • Amazing views!

    "We had a beautiful week in this villa which had an amazing view of the Caribbean on the top deck. The villa was clean and well stocked with items that anyone would need while they are away. They also had a new gas grill and plenty of outside furniture. The area was very quiet and peaceful. We recommend renting a golf cart as this was a fun way to get around area. We also rented a car and explored the island. We loved Turners Beach and Castaways Beach Bar! The owner was very accommodating and responsive to all of our questions. We hope to return next year! Thank you Raija for sharing your villa with us on our well needed vacation. Warm regards, Connie"
