My husband and I stayed for 5 days in Antigua and we are so grateful that Trip Advisor led us to Blue Moon!! It was the best part of our trip and made our entire stay in Antigua magical! We stayed on the upper villa and the views are to die for. It's tempting to just hang out on the veranda all day!
Shonnie, Michael and Chloe are true gems. We felt like we were staying at a cool relative's house they make you feel that much at home. We took Chloe hiking a lot and we still are talking about how much we miss her!! Shonnie is very sweet and has so many great recommendations about what to do on the island. She let us borrow a few snorkels and we hiked to some fabulous snorkeling! It was our first time and we are so grateful for her generosity. She was nice to bring us into town and to places on the island several times. You can also take a boat for free into English Harbor if it's during the day.
The villa literally has everything you could want. It has a satellite radio, a blender, a fridge and stove. The entire villa is open with screens to the outside so you can hear the waves coming up while you sleep. The outdoor shower was quite an experience as well!!
We didn't rent a car, but we will next time and I would recommend it. Getting taxi's wasn't difficult, but it just made going in and out of town more of a project. English Harbor and all the restaurants aren't far away. It took us awhile to figure out how to use our cell phones internationally so calling the taxis was a hassle sometimes.
Everyone keeps marveling at our pictures, they are so beautiful. It was a very private, relaxing, and romantic place and we attribute that to this beautiful piece of paradise that Shonnie and Michael have created. I really think what they charge is an incredible bargain! We felt guilty when Shonnie wouldn't accept some money we tried to give her when we left as thanks!
