Had a wonderful time renting a cottage for 4 nights in May 2015. During the low season most of the cottages seem to be vacant so the place feels very private. Often we get the pool to ourselves. The few neighbours we did have are all friendly and quiet. Bathroom is clean, bed is comfortable, air conditioning is a huge... More

Nice cosy hotel with view over the sea from poolside. Small and nice hotell with good staff. Well furnished rooms. We had a room just by the poolside and it was great. Just a short walk down the road to the fantastic Dickenson bay.

The cottages are set on the hill above Dickenson Bay with stunning views towards the sea. There are around 16 cottages on site making the accommodation quiet, private and perfect for us as a group of 10 people wishing to stay together in a small complex. The pool area is lovely, with a gas BBQ available which we used often... More

This is a hidden gem on the island of Antigua. A small cluster of apartment-style cottages around a small pool just five minutes walk from a superb beach colonised by significantly more expensive properties such as the ubiquitous Sandals. My apartment had a galleried bedroom and bathroom overlooking a small living and kitchen area. There's everything you need to self-cater... More

Our first contact was with Karimah via email when I asked her if she could organise a taxi transfer from the airport to the property. We were met on our arrival by GG who remained our taxi driver of choice during our stay - he never let us down. On arrival we were greeted by Karimah who showed us to... More

Dear Guest Thank you so much for your review. It is pleasing for the staff to be mentioned in reviews; the majority have been with the cottages since we opened the doors 22 Years ago. They are committed and a very important part of our business. I hope the memories of your stay and the island bring you back soon.... More

If you don't like big all-inclusive hotels, this is the place for you. Quiet, reasonably priced self-catering 'cottages' overlooking a pool and a stunning view of the sea and hills. It is well placed for a fabulous beach, getting into St. John's and two supermarkets. The cottages are spacious, clean and comfortable but lacking a little in full amenities eg.... More

I have been going here with my girlfriend, wife and now kids on and off for 20 years. It's great value, close to one of the best beaches in Antigua. It's comfortable and easy. That said, it's a shame as the investment is not being put into the cottages. They need redecorating as the same curtains and chairs have been... More

Dear guest Thank you for your detailed personal review. It's always nice to be able to review comments and views from such loyal clients. I can confirm that the cottages have retained the original furniture frames which have been re-finished and re-upholstered twice; we also do not have any of the original drapes on site these along with bedspreads have...

We were here four nights and we had a good experience. The cottages are big and have everything you need. The view on the pool is nice and even though the cottages are all close together the place is very quiet and we completely had our privacy. We had some problems with the wifi that goes on and off frequently... More
