“Perfect...........................”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Stoneyhill is the most perfect spot on Antigua. Really. I hesitate to share this information as they will be inundated with reservations and we may not be able to stay during our selected times. Karol and Merv are the consummate hosts - available, but not intrusive. The property is divine, as are the views.

Stoneyhill is for those of you who want to relax and enjoy the island. If you are looking for "all-inclusive", this is not for you. Each day you open the French doors and say "Oh, man...this is so beautiful". You take your coffee, or tea, onto the porch and just marvel at the beauty of the view. After awhile, you pick up your book and relax and read. It just doesn't get any better than this.

Okay..........getting down to basics. You can leave the windows open at night and be comfortable with the ceiling fan. Or, you can turn on the AC. Unfortunately, it shuts off during the night and you may get warm. Leave the windows open.........just my recommendation.

The water pressure in the showers is great. All of the water is recycled rainwater.......lovely! Great pressure in toilets, too.

Suggestions?: Provide basics such as paper towels, toilet paper, ice, glass cleaner, coffee filters, etc.

All in all............the most perfect place to stay on Antigua. But don't tell anyone. We're going back.

Room Tip: They all have slightly different views, but each is perfect and unique!!!

We had the opportunity to stay at Stoneyhill Apts for a week ... and wish we could have stayed for a month. The apartments are beautiful, comfortable and have gorgeous views of the ocean. Merv and Karol Stewart are fantastic hosts and make you feel extremely welcome. The location is great, their pool/bar area is fantastic and the verandas are perfect for relaxing. We're planning to go back again next year ... and there's only one place to stay. And for you adventurous types, the drive from the highway to the apartments is fun!! We could not have selected a more beautiful spot.

Staying here was a delight in every way, from booking to leaving. Before booking, Karol was very helpful in answering questions and coordinating car rentals. She even called me long distance to the US to help me out. Upon arriving to the property (along a steep unpaved road: 4x4 necessary!), we were greeted by Merve who was just as friendly. He showed us our unit, which included ensuite bathroom, A/C, full kitchen, and patio. The outdoor space included a hammock, lounge chairs, and dining area which all overlooked the hills and ocean. They even included a mobile phone which was very handy. The rest of the complex included a pool, bar area, bbq, outdoor bathroom and shower. We were the only guests there at the time so space wasn’t an issue. Even if all 3 units were booked, there would still be plenty of space for everyone at the pool/bar area.

While we stayed there, Karol and Merve made themselves available to answer our questions, whether it be about tours or the local food. They even invited us to dinner one night and introduced us to traditional Jamaican food. It was quite a feast and much appreciated. It’s not often that the owners invite their guests into their homes, let alone for a meal together.

All in all, the accommodations were fantastic; second only to Karol and Merve’s hospitality. The only regret is not finding this earlier and booking/cancelling other hotels first.

Room Tip: Need a 4x4

To think about a drawback about Karol and Merv´s place takes time, since is they offer all we can ask for, a Clean place, a nice view, they are warm and willing to help, there is a nice pool, etc etc. So, just to be fair i can mention that is not beach-side, but ... you can rent a car (witch i recommend and encourage) to visit all the beaches...
To be short, a clean and nice place, away from all the noises, with a warm couple to help you in anything you want, without being intrusive.

We can totally recommend these appartements. The descritions of our predecessors are acurate, so no point in repeating.
As we stayed there in early season, we had the place to our selves.
There are so many little things on top of the usual stuff that made the stay so wonderfull. The cell phone, all the rum&cokes at the pool, the musik, very laid back atmosphere, as much privacy as you want, help wiht everything like organizing the scuba diving and the rental 4x4... to much to mention. All you needet to was ask and help was provided.
Its not a 5 star suite thing ith privat butler etc. but who would want that anyway.
We higly recommend a 4x4 not just for the road up to the appartments but also for the island cruises.

Thanks again Karol & Merv!!! If we come back to Antigua we will certaily try to stay with you again.

We stayed here for 16 nights in Aug 2010. This place is good value for money. Me and hubby tend to go away to spend time by ourselves. Karol and Merv have the knack of being very friendly but also leaving you alone!
The apartment was great, nice and peaceful with fantastic views. A lovely quiet and beautiful beach was only a couple of minutes drive away.
We were unfortunate to be around when hurricane Earl hit but Merv and Karol did everything to ensure the apartments were ready. Hatches were shut, balcony items cleared and torches supplied! I can confirm that although a frightening experience these apartments can survive a category 2! The place has an emergency generator so despite power being down we were not without electricity for too long. Merv and Karol soon had things tidied up and the garden back to its tidy state. They certainly looked after us!
I would definately recommend this as a good place to stay. The local supermarket isn't too far away either and there are plenty of things to go and see. Only one word of caution. There are a few restaurants around but many are shut in August with owners goinng on holiday.
