“Absolutely incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

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!

A huge thank you to Shonnie, Michael and Chloe for their warm welcome when we arrived, despite our extremely late arrival thanks to LIAT! The top villa was immaculate and had everything we could have wished for during our far too short stay. Facilities are great at the villas including the jacuzzi and barbeque, plenty of seating and sun loungers with spectacular views over Freemans Bay and English Harbour on our private terrace. We had the bonus of views of the super yachts in Falmouth Harbour too, thanks to the position on the hillside. The beach was quiet which almost gave us the feeling it was only for us! Shonnie was always available if we needed anything or any advise, and she had great knowledge and lots of guidance whatever we were looking for. If you looking for a busy loud resort, this is not for you but if you are after a quiet, scenic and location with stunning views and a convenient base for the most beautiful part of the island including Shirley Heights, English Harbour, Nelsons Dockyard and Falmouth Harbour with a villa to match, then this superb.

I spent 10 days at this wonderful villa in November. It is well appointed and has beautiful views and amenities. The real Gem at this Villa is Shonnie the owner and her husband who live in their own home close by. I chose not to rent a car and Shonnie picked me up at the airport as well as offered me rides in to town and to local restaurants and sites. She made many suggestions and recommendations on places to visit and restaurants to eat at. She WAS the gem here!

I recommend this Villa to anyone who is looking for a quiet getaway and is not afraid of a few stairs!

Room Tip: Both villas have excellent views but the upper villa would be my next choice. Renting both is also a...

My friend and I needed to get away from it all and Blue Moon was just the remedy. Beautiful villa overlooking the picturesque bay, steps away from Galleon Beach, pure relaxation! The villa was immaculate but the outdoor shower was my favorite.

The view from the villa is just remarkable and when we weren't resting we were hiking, kayaking and swimming around the island. I highly recommend half moon beach. I can't wait to book another week (or two) there.

We just got back today from a magnificant vacation. What did we do??? nothing, and it was amazing. On our other trips were jam packed, we went to all of the historic sites, the beautiful beaches and the stores. This time we wanted to pick the best place to stay and just enjoy the reason we wanted to get away; and that was to relax and let the beauty of the island sink in. We picked Blue Moon because to us after seeing all of the beaches, hotels and sites this was by far the best for us. Shonnie picked us up at the airport, took us to the grocery store and baileys for food and drink and we were on our way to paradise. You will read all of the reviews about Shonnie but they can't really express what a lovely person she is. Truly a great host. Just read the reviews they are all accurate, spot on. We had breakfast on the verandah, fixed a small iglo full of pinacoladas and headed for the beach to wade in the water and relax. Then in the evening a glass of wine to toast the beautiful sunset and on to one of Shonnie's suggestions for dinner which by the way were all wonderful. I could go on, but you've already heard it all. After many times around the island this is truely a place where you can catch up with yourself. We will be back, for sure.

We had a wonderful week at Blue Moon Villas, we rented both of them, they are both really lovely, clean and spacious with everything you need supplied.
The beach is great and only a 2 minute stroll down the hill. We would recommend hiring a car to get about easily, English Harbour is just around the corner with all the restaurants you would need.
Shonnie and Michael are very friendly and helpful hosts.
Enjoy the wonderful views and have a great holiday at Blue Moon.

My wife and I spent four beautiful days in one of Blue Moon Antigua's beautiful villas. Our villa was charming, with all the amenities you would want and offered the most spectacular view of the bay any and the southwest exposure our sunsets were beyond compare! Galleon Beach is quiet and clean and provides easy access to great restaurants in nearby English Harbor and Falmouth Harbor. If you want privacy, comfort, beauty and relaxation, then you need to check out Blue Moon Antigua. Galleon Beach is just down the hill and offers only one place to eat, but you can take a water taxi over to English Harbor.
