“Paradise!”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A beautiful house in every respect, in a perfect, tranquil setting with stunning views. The house has everything needed for an amazing, relaxing holiday, with all furniture and equipment of a very high standard. Lovely infinity pool with terrific views. Turtle View is also a nature lover's paradise - Hummingbirds, Pelicans, Frigate Birds, Fireflies lighting up the treetops, Mongoose and yes...Turtles viewed in the bay from the terrace! Clear star-lit night skies with shooting stars and we even saw the International Space Station passing overhead!

Turtle View is THE place to go to instantly chill out and relax and yet is close enough to all the major sights, sounds and places of Antigua. We can't wait to go back.

“Practically Perfect in Every Way”
Reviewed July 24, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

This is a stunning location and a beautiful house. The photos really don't do it justice. Booking it was hassle-free and the owners provided lots of useful information before we went. We were looked very well by Claire, the property manager, who was always on hand for anything we needed - plus the people in the neighbouring properties were exceptionally friendly and helpful as well. We felt quite at home by the time we had to leave!

This would have had 5 stars but for the lack of hot water which was an issue for us because sadly we were not blessed with good weather and the hot water was solar powered. No sun = no hot water. Think that may have been rectified now though and if it has been, I would have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending.

“Beautiful House”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in January 2015
1
person found this review helpful

From the most beautiful villa I ever stayed we came directly from Tobago to this villa. Arriving at night it was not so easy to find it, even we had a very good desription. Asking a neighbour solved this tiny problem. Entering the house we were impressed from the first moment. It looked quite new even it was build more than 10 years ago. My wife immediately fell in love with the kitchen and I did the same with the Sonos Sound system ;-)
Most of the windows, the terrace and the pool offer beautiful views to the sea. The area is very quiet and very close to one of the nicest beaches we have seen in Antigua (long bay beach). And there are lots of very nice beaches. Actually I've never seen a single island with so many very beautiful beaches!
The house offers everything you need, even a welcome food package is indcluded which get's quite handy when you arrive late. We enjoyed every single minute of our five days in this beautiful place.

“Fantastic Stay at Turtle View”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

My husband, our young daughter (just under 2), and my mother stayed at Turtle View for one week from February 28 - March 7, 2015. The photos do not do the view justice - it is a spectacular vista and it never gets old.

The house is really beautiful and it's fully equipped with pretty much everything you need and while there is no air conditioning, they aren't kidding about the hefty Antiguan breezes that cool you naturally and of course with all the ceiling fans, we didn't need AC. There is a washer but no dryer - again, our clothes were dry in a couple of hours. Our biggest issue was that we had some trouble getting enough hot water, otherwise, no complaints at all.

We were looking for space and privacy and that is exactly what this villa offers. We bought a day pass for a resort (Carlisle Bay) one day during our week to get the "resort experience" and it was absolutely lovely, but when we went back to Turtle View, we were again so happy for our privacy and extra room we'd never been able to afford or even get at a resort. You definitely need a car if you are staying here and don't be afraid to venture out regularly and ask directions in the beginning. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help and there are almost no road signs so you have to ask!

There are not a lot of restaurants nearby. Because of baby's schedule and not wanting to be driving in the dark, we ate out at lunchtime since they were longer drives and grilled for dinners typically. We ate at Mama Pasta's at Long Bay (very close; Cecil is so nice) which was very good, and ate at Harmony Hall, restaurant at Carlisle Bay and Cecilia's High Point Cafe. All were pretty pricey, but good food and really lovely atmosphere. We also went to the Sunday afternoon BBQ at Shirley Heights but we could have done without it. It was a beautiful view, but I've heard you can get a similar view at other restaurants that aren't overrun with tourists. It definitely felt like a tourist attraction.

For grocery stores, we went to Epicurean (the largest), Gourmet Basket (easiest to find coming from the airport, they have a good selection of food but we found only frozen meat) and the pale blue store near Turtle View (you'll know when you go, the local store really only good for some basics, water, etc). Epicurean is by far the best. They have everything you need - it's bigger than any NYC grocery store but we had some trouble finding it and got lost on the way there. Don't be afraid to ask for directions because you'll need them.

Have a great time!!!

“Idyllic cliffside villa with stunning views and solitude.”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

Just as you see in the pictures online. No cropping of eyesores or other distractions. Our favorite activity after dinner was to line up the lounge chairs on the deck, turn off the house lights and check out the stars. Spacious in every regard, but still cozy thanks to the architect's efforts. The large cooks kitchen opening to the outdoor dining area was a great feature. We much preferred cooking at home to driving across the island at night after a late dinner. Claire was very responsive to our house questions and need of local information.

“Absolutely Perfect -”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

This property is absolutely stunning and was ideal for us travelling as 2 couples. The villa is tranquil and relaxing and you never tire of the view which you can see wherever you are, in and outside of the villa. The villa allows 2 couples plenty of privacy as it is so spacious and has absolutely everything you might need. Our holiday was perfect. Day times spent relaxing by the pool or out exploring the beautiful beaches of Antigua and evenings in eating and chatting with friends. Also, due to the elevated position of the villa there was always a gentle breeze which meant the villa was kept lovely and cool and there were no mosquitos, perfect for being able to relax in the evenings - al fresco dining and lying on the sun beds watching for shooting stars.

The photos can't convey just how beautiful the property is, I have recommended to everyone that would listen! ;-)
