“Can't wait to return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2010

This was my third trip to Montserrat. I have seen the changes of the villa in the past couple of years and they are spectacular. Relax by the pool, snorkel, watched the baby turtles hatch, hang out at one of the many great local bars, visit with the locals!!!! You can keep your day as busy as you want or just float in the pool, have a drink while watching the unbelieveable sunsets. Miles Away is the perfect spot for anyone, singles, couples, families tell Sharmaine what you want to do and she'll hook you up. The rooms are generous in sizing, bed was comfy and the sun hot. Don't let the Volcano scare you away from this true gem of an island is a must to see on your bucket list.

I just recently returned from the Island of Montserrat - second visit. The first time I went was two years ago where I stayed in a single-family rental villa (which there are many to choose from on the island). Although the villa we had previously stayed at was nice, we found ourselves pretty isolated because, firstly, the villa itself was 'miles away' from the main town center, but secondly because we had no local people (like you would if you were in a resort setting) to talk/connect with. And, as any season traveller knows, connecting with the local community is so important to ensuring you get a more culturally enriching experience that goes beyond just lazing around soaking up the sun (which was great too, but even that gets old). So for those reasons we decided to look beyond the single-villa experience, which is why we came across Miles Away Villa.
As for Miles Away Villa, all I can say is that we had, by far, a much better experience and time this visit. Sharmaine, the owner/operator, and her staff were fantastic! From the moment we arrived, until they dropped us off at the airport, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This villa is quainte and intimate, but definitely boasts all of the modern amenities that one would need - it's more like a larger bed & breakfast so you skip all the nuisance of the big resort experience, which was what we loved best. The facility itself was top notch - very modern, but cozy. We had no problem finding private space on the property where we could just kick back and be alone. The room we stayed in had a private balcony overlooking a breath-taking landscape so often we would just kick back at night and have a glass of wine and watch the sun set which was also amazing.
As for our daily routine, Sharmaine et al were extremely helpful in helping us plan and organize our day. We basically sat down every morning after breakfast with staff and they helped work out any details/logistics for our sightseeing & shopping excursions. They also made sure we knew where to go, but also where to avoid.
If you're looking for a quiet, sophisticated, professionally run get-away spot, we highly recommend Miles Away Villa. We loved it so much, we're hoping to get back there in February.

'Home away from home.' The suites have an air-conditioned bedroom with king/queen sized or twin beds. For natural cross breeze ventilation, switch off the a/c and open the screened louvered window. Each suite opens onto a patio with glimpses of the blue Caribbean sea through a profusion of palm fronds. Concealed behind louvered doors is a kitchenette for the preparation of drinks and light meals. After exploring Montserrat, "the way the Caribbean use to be," come back to your private accommodation, enjoy a drink on the patio, watch the birds flitting through the foliage, watch for the green flash as the sun goes down - for the quintessential Caribbean experience. At night, lie back, be seduced by the sight of the moon shining through the palms, and enjoy nature's music: the song of the frogs, the sound of waves lapping on the shore, the river and the trade winds rustling through the foliage. ... more   less
