A wonderful vacation spot for those who want to get away. Location was amazing in that it was right on the beach and yet only a few minutes from the airport, other beaches and the grocery store. David was great. Very helpful but never intrusive. The cabins are quaint and have everything needed to be self sufficient on vacation or to use as just a stopping point. We stayed in the 1 bedroom on the water. Wind was definitely moving but we found it soothing and it definitely kept the place cool and bug free. We did rent a car for the week and the $20 on the GARMIN upgrade for Antigua was priceless. We were able to explore the entire island and still find our way back without any problems. David hooked us up with Mikey Pigott at Fishantigua.com Great trip that resulted in my first sail fish. He also sent us to Shelley Heights one night for sunset party.Was cool but not our seen because of so many tourists.
There are two restaurants within walking distance. We took advantage of both. Hours are a little tricky but we asked on the first day and planned accordingly. They were excellent.
Marlene the maid comes 3x a week and was very nice.
We did all our shopping at The Gourmet Basket and the wine shop next door. Great place for the basics.
