Amazing experience

5 of 5
Our family loved our stay in the cottages. Our host Kelcina was incredible as well. The cottage was very clean, fully-appointed, plus architecturally interesting and well built. They are situated close to the water & up high (tropical style) on rigid stilts to catch the breezes. When we arrived we found that Kelcina had already stocked the fridge with fruit, pastries, beer & juices plus bottled water too. We had brought some canned goods with us from Antigua so we were all set. No need to spend any of our first day shopping. The beaches are beautiful. There are also stand-up paddle boards, beach chairs & shade palapas. The town (short drive) is very small and absolutely NOT "tourist trappy" at all. There are NO tourist shops. That may bother some people but we embraced it. The no-schlock aspect of town was refreshing. Everything in town is simply there for the locals. So you shop & eat with the residents of the island. It's fantastic. If you crave an authentic & Non-Disney type experience this is it! --------------------the Real Deal. Yes, there's sand flies. But they seem to fly about only during the evening hours between 4 and 7 PM. Before & after that they are a non- issue. Use your screens during those hours. Kelcina was so gracious to our family. When she heard that our daughter had a cold, she surprised us later with a pot of home-made chicken soup! That doesn't happen at corporate hotel. Kelcina had arranged for a car rental for us and she also booked the frigate bird tour, including a half-day at 17-mile beach. We also met her lovely daughter Allison. The Prime Minister of Antigua & Barbuda stays at The Cottages. And Barbuda was a favorite of Princess Diana. So you are in good company! We enjoyed walking to Uncle Roddy's to eat the great food & ice cream. And hearing the occasional braying of the wild donkeys was hilarious. Overall we couldn't have asked for a better low-key, & chill vacation.
