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

It had is on veranda with seating too. This would suit... More

What a great place to stay. The staff is very cool, always looking out for you. If you need a quiet, clean, great location to anywhere and not break the bank place to stay, this the place. All the amenities are there but the beach, which is only a 5 minute or faster walk. It has a built in kitchen,... More

The cottages are well maintained duplex apartments! not cottages - it was a nice surprise walking into such a spacious apartment. The kitchen area was well appointed and the living room was more that sufficient - it was clean and with the high ceilings there was a very good a real airy feeling about the place. The bedroom on the... More
