“Lovely spot - 5 mins drive from the beach”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Lovely apartment with great views over Falmouth Harbour.

Nice touches - as well as the standard pots and pans there were mozzie sprays, shampoo and some of the wee things you may forget. Generous welcome items placed in fridge (milk, butter, beers, juices, breads, cereal, biscuits etc). Somewhere you could come straight off the plane to stay, without having to find the supermarket first.

No donkeys here (though there are goats), and, if you're a beach bum, bear in mind that the beach is a drive away. The local Pigeon Beach is grand, but we ended up going back to the spectacular Fryes / Darkwood beaches on the west coast, and Half Moon Bay on the east coast.

On the whole a beautifully designed apartment which made a great base for the family to explore the south coast and surrounds.

“Really great place in Antigua”
Reviewed May 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Danilo and Oriella are experienced hosts in Antigua and Italy and it shows with the little touches which make a good stay a great one. The artist flair is apparent throughout the appartment, I wish we could have stayed longer.

“Wonderful Place to Stay in Antigua”
Reviewed February 24, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

"Donkey on the Beach" was an enjoyable place to stay in every way. It was attractive, clean, well maintained, and has a beautiful view of Falmouth Harbour. The owners, Danilo and Orietta, are perfect hosts -- friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. We had a great time!

“Perfect!”

We traveled with another couple and spent 3 days at Donkey on the Beach and loved every minute. Donilo and Orietta were the perfect hosts. They made sure that we were happy and well taken care of. A phone was provided for us to contact them if we had any issues while staying with them. The view was spectacular and we would sit for hours watching the harbor and just relaxing. We went to the beach each day. It looked to be about a 15 minute walk, but Donilo offered to drive us. There was a very inexpensive local TAXI that was available as well. We ate at the Asian Restaurant that was next door and just a short walk up the hill. We had a fantastic meal there. Very cutting age cuisine. Donilo and Orietta offered to take us to the Friday night seafood outdoor festival and we had delicious, just caught grilled lobsters. We were able to meet their friends and dine with the locals. My wife learned how to make Italian espresso from Orietta, and our hostess even made a delicious dinner for us on our last night. We hope to one day visit their Antigua B & B that they run in Italy. We can't say enough about how wonderfully we were treated. We wanted a true island experience before we went over to the Sandal's resort for the rest of the time there and this couple gave us that. We hope to return someday.

“Blissful, beautiful, fantastic holiday. Exceeded my expectations by far.”
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!”
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!
