“Blissful, beautiful, fantastic holiday. Exceeded my expectations by far.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

I've been meaning to write this for months as certainly want to give credit where it is most definitely due and still reminiscing about my wonderful holiday here. Donkey on the Beach is an absolutely beautiful apartment with wonderful views and decorated with the most exquisite furnishings. The pictures just don't do it justice. It was absolutely spotless too and a great location just outside English Harbour and close to lots of wonderful beaches. Danilo and Orietta , the apartment owners, couldn't do enough for us and were so accommodating and gracious , even inviting us to their apartment one evening for a delicious lobster dinner and they took us to some wonderful beaches also. In all honesty one of the nicest places I've ever stayed with two of the loveliest owners anyone could meet. I really hope to go back at some point this year! I fell in love with Antigua :-)

“OMG, what a fantastic place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Wow, this apartment far exceeded my dreams, let alone any expectations!
Italian owned, designed and run, it certainly is amazingly stylish, and what a location - the view is stunning! A great balcony allows you to dine as the sun sets over the sea or a short walk into English Harbour gives a rich choice of restruants.
The owners are out of this world - they couldn't do enough for us and made us feel very welcome.Can't wait to go back!

My daughter and I stayed at Donkey on the Beach over Easter. As we have a yacht in the Caribbean we are often looking for somewhere to stay for some reason or other and it is not always easy with a lot of hotels being resorts and geared towards package holidays. Donkey on Beach on the other hand is a real find. It is very comfortable, safe and private and the Terrace overlooking Falmouth harbour is the perfect place for breakfast, supper and in my case a bit of office work with fast and reliable internet. Should you chose to spend time with them Danilo and Orietta are great hosts and great company too. We are looking forwards to going back soon, it was my daughter’s favourite part of our holiday!

“A rare gem of luxurious Italian hospitality in an idyllic Caribbean setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Our first encounter with Donkey on the Beach solidly exceeded our expectations.

My partner's initial correspondence with the owners had been fluid and making the booking was an almost effortless process, which immediately put us at ease.

On arriving at the airport late in the evening we were promptly greeted by our smiling hosts Danilo and Orietta who swiftly loaded our luggage onto their pickup and began to make us feel at home before we had even reached the comfort of the apartment.

After a gently meandering drive across the sleepy island Dani pulled up in front of the house and showed us up the charming wooden staircase onto the veranda and into our apartment. At once we were taken with it. The tasteful European character of the decor was apparent even to our tired eyes and the soft glow of the pleasant, subtly lit rooms relaxed our jet-lagged bodies. The range and quality of the amenities surpassed the ample offerings of the description and, after a snack prepared from the pre-stocked fridge, we settled into a deep sleep in an exquisite four-poster bed under the unobtrusive cooling breeze of the ceiling fan.

The instantaneous warmth we felt towards both the apartment and our hosts only increased as the days passed. Dani and Orietta were tirelessly hospitable and on several occasions kindly invited us to join them for drinks and meals, which we gladly accepted and were very much impressed by. Half way through our stay they returned the apartment to its original immaculate standard and they kept us in fresh beach towels and laundry throughout. Their knowledge of the island proved invaluable and during the two weeks we stayed their already strong grasp of English seemed to increase two-fold.

I would recommend the apartment to anyone but due to the external staircase I would advise people with disabilities or very small children to contact the owners to discuss their requirements before booking. Dani and Orietta keep a pair of very friendly and delightful small dogs but if you would like to bring your own pets I would advise you to discuss the particulars directly with them. No security deposit was required.

I can honestly say that neither I nor my partner have a single negative comment to make about the Donkey on the Beach; we only regret that we could not stay longer.
