#1 of 3 Specialty lodging in Cades Bay
ReefView Apartments consist of three unique and fully equipped self catering holiday/vacation homes - each with full bathroom and kitchen - set in lush tropical gardens affording spectacular panoramic views of Antigua's famous Cades Reef just 1 mile offshore as well as neighbouring islands of Montserrat, Guadeloupe and Redonda. ReefView Apartments is located on the shores of the Cades Bay Marine Reserve in a quiet residential hamlet - just 100m from a long deserted sandy beach, fringed with coconut palms, with walk in snorkeling available right off the beach. The shallows flats which front the apartments for miles in each direction are also a haven for sports fishermen - offering shots at hard fighting game species such as tarpon, permit, snook, snapper and barracuda - to name but a few.... Ideal for independent travelers, who enjoy long beach walks in beautiful natural surroundings, exploring the many interesting facets of Antigua's history and geography and immersing themselves in the local culture to provide an experience far removed from the generic experience offered by most other resorts. Owned and operated by long time Antigua residents - Karoll and Nick Williams - we are always on hand to help you get orientated and to know THE REAL ANTIGUA!!! We very much look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of paradise - down by the sea.....

My wife and I had the great pleasure of spending 10 days at the Reefview apartments in beautiful Antigua in March just before the world shut down for Covid-19. The accommodations were wonderful. We had everything we could possibly need. The beach was just a stones throw away with great DIY fly fishing opportunities. Karol is an amazing host! My wife and Karol spent quite a bit of time together while I was fishing with her husband Nick, the resident fishing guide. Ginger and Karol became good friends as they visited many places on the island. If you are going to Antigua do yourself a favor and book your stay at the Reefview Apartments! You won't be disappointed! By the way, husband Nick is an amazing fishing guide as well.

We had a wonderful 14 day stay in the Penthouse apartment at Reefview Apts. Apartment had everything we needed for our stay,cold fridge,comfy bed,extremely clean and comfortable overall. Great hosts,Karoll and Nick were extremely accommodating and friendly,we felt right at home,you couldn't ask for more knowledgeable host's. The location is centrally located with plenty of local charm and vendors nearby,Karoll will fill you in on all the nearby vendors restaurants and beaches.I was also fortunate to pre-book and fish with Nick,the islands premier inshore fishing guide,landed my first Snook and Tarpon...amazing.If you have any questions or concerns you should reach out to Karoll as I did. Karoll was able to book a rental car for us in advance and have it delivered to the apt. We felt very relaxed and comfortable during our stay.If your looking for a real taste of the island life with local charm and hospitality,don't hesitate to give them a try.

I'm writing this review missing Antigua so much! We had a fab time at the Reefview Apartments and I feel like I found a real kindred spirit in Karoll the owner. Such good fun and super knowledgeable as an ex-pat who has been in Antigua for over 30 years. We really like snorkelling and there's a beach just two minutes away on foot with a great reef so it was ideal for us. Also close to the Jolly Harbour area and the various beaches and bars along the road on the way there such as the great Rum Bus Beach Bar (created from old London buses). Karoll was able to give us lots of local tips, and we highly recommend the local restaurant/bar Chappies for a real taste of authentic Antiguan life and GREAT food. The apartment had everything we needed and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Hi Lorraine & Andy, It was indeed our pleasure to host you both at our tropical hideaway down by the sea here in Cades Bay. We are so glad that you enjoyed our coconut thatched cabana next to the waters edge and managed to relax and enjoy the great snorkeling right off our home beach here in the coves. I know you had a brilliant day snorkeling as well on the boat trip, Antigua looks so beautiful from the water. Our rescued scarlet macaw really enjoyed all your daily interaction with her. Have a great year enjoying all the grandchildren ~ hope to see you back here soooooon! sunny regards Karoll & Nick

When we began to plan a trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, we wanted to find a place that would be memorable and personal. We especially wanted to see more of Antigua than a resort would offer...we wanted to explore and enjoy the simple pleasures of the island. We found the perfect place! From the moment we met Karoll (she picked us up at the airport and took us grocery shopping), we knew we were in for a treat. Her knowledge of the island is extraordinary and every recommendation she gave us resulted in a wonderful experience. From Sunday night at Shirley Heights to the Creole Cruise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment had everything we needed for rest and relaxation and provided a good location for driving our rental car all around the island to see the sights. Karoll's personal touches make it feel like home and her friendly presence made it difficult to leave. We will never forget our trip to Antigua!

As a family of 4 we travelled to Antigua for a wedding. Our Reefview apartment was perfect for us, enough space, lovely and clean with a fully equipped kitchen. The outside space perfect for morning coffee. Our host was attentive, informative, helpful and welcoming and with the beautiful rescued pet dogs/cats/parrot we felt right at home. Lovely location near to a beautiful beach, with lots of other beaches and bars easily accessed by a short drive. Loved our stay in magical Antigua.
