The Essence Guest House was really relaxing and offered a wonderful view of the Volcano and the nearby beach below. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The Guest house came with a small kitchenette (i.e. a small, sink, toaster, electric kettle, toaster oven, plates, cups and a mini fridge). If you are spending a few days in Montserrat I... More

Myself and my fiancée travelled nine Caribbean islands in three weeks, and this was by far the highlight of our holiday. The room we got was perfect. Big lounge, nice kitchen, spacy bedroom. The swimming pool was great, perfect postcard view of the volcano. I genuinely have never stayed in a nicer place. Hope the volcano behaves and this paradise... More

My boyfriend & I can't say enough about this place! Not only are Eric & Annie such a nice couple, but they have thought of it all! The apartment is so nice, clean, and modern. Everything I needed they already thought of so I felt like I was home! I absolutely loved the fact we could swim in the pool... More

We stayed at the Essence for 7 days and it was fabulous! Our apartment was clean, comfortable and very affordable. The second floor veranda/deck had the most beautiful view that looked out at the volcano, green tree valley and out to the beach. We spent many mornings enjoying our breakfast and looking out at the scenery in awe (this was... More

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment on the ground floor. It was very clean and well equipped for a week long stay. Use of the pool and main deck are included, providing access to the best views and cooling breezes. Eric and Annie, the owners are fantastic, very friendly and give good advice on places to eat, visit, and... More

We (couple) rented the bottom 1bedroom apartment suite and it was just perfect! The linens and towels were changed every couple of days and we had plenty of beach towels to bring with us to the beach or lounge upstairs at the pool. The decor was really nice, showers were awesome; huge shower head to cool down after a day... More

Loved Essence Guesthouse - great location with spectacular views over to Soufriere Hills. Eric and Annie are really friendly and will do all they can to help you make the most of your stay. The accommodation is really comfortable and reasonable in comparison to other places we stayed. Would definitely recommend.

Eric and Annie's little place is everything you could ask for. I stayed in the guestroom upstairs. It includes a refrigerator, widescreen television, sink, toaster oven and utensils. The rooms is comfortable (ceiling fan included) and immaculately clean. But why stay inside when there is a dream-like swimming pool on the porch attached to the house? On one side of... More

My husband and I are just back from a dream vacation that included Essence Guest House on Montserrat. The island of Montserrat is very interesting with the volcano, but there is so much more to the island. The first thing would be your host and hostess at Essence, Eric and Annie. These lovely people welcome you one of their homes,... More
