Staying here is like visiting grandma’s house, if grandma lives in a glorious villa that tumbles down a lush Caribbean hillside. Jackie, the owner, welcomed me with a hug when I arrived, as if I were a part of her family. She gave me the run of the place, with the freedom to wander into the kitchen and help myself... More

I do not know where to start with our review. We had a wonderful stay with Jackie and it felt like we were staying with family as she made us feel so welcome and could not do enough for us. We also met some of her family (also wonderful) and joined them 'Rum Carolling' round the island as well as... More

Did not arrive expecting what we got! Jackie met our every need! Usually staying in large commercial five star chains, we were wondering what to expect. We got much more than we bargained for! Jackie is an amazing cook, our suite was large, immaculate and cool! Felt that we ate healthy, good tasting food with a Caribbean flare. Never ate... More

We visited St. John's, Antigua two weeks ago, approximately, on an Oceania Cruise and we signed up for a culinary cooking experience for travelers at Jackie's villa on Sunset Lane. It far exceeded our expectations. Her home and small hotel are pristine, beautiful, clean, and gorgeous!She is a trained, friendly chef. She planned a culinary experience for us that was... More

Visited VSL in January and am already trying to think of a way to return. If you want something away from the large resorts and chains, this is the place. You only have to mention what you would like and it seems to appear like magic. Jacquie and her friendly staff pamper you from start to finish. The meals are... More

OK, so it's not on a beach. But it is within a 7-10 minute walk of a good beach, with all of the expected amenities such as sailing, jet skis, music, etc. Beyond that, all we can add is a long list of superlatives, echoing what has already been said in so many Trip Advisor reviews. The property is at... More

Unlike so many others, we had a rough entrance to Antigua. The immigration experience was shockingly rude and put us immediately into the worst vacation mood. Another rude customer service person at the rental car place, and we were quite tense by the time we arrived at the Villas. However, from the first moment we met Jackie, I have to... More

We have been to a lot of Caribbean island vacations, but Antigua has to be considered the best due to the stay at the Villas at Sunset Lane (VSL). VSL is a small boutique (10-12 rooms) situated on a hillside above Dickenson Bay. So, you wake up everyday to 81 F degree weather and have this panoramic view of the... More

I have to admit that when I first found this place on Trip Advisor and showed it to my husband, we were a bit skeptical. A bright pink boutique hotel not located directly on the beach? Not a well-known name or chain resort? Every single review had positive things to say? After not having the best experience staying at a... More

We stayed here 10 days at the end of July during mango season and the start of Carnivale. The hotel is a 15 minute ride from the airport and up on a hill that overlooks Dickenson Bay. We did not rent a car so travel was limited to expensive taxi rides, the local bus system and a lift from staff... More
