“Third time at Min Y Don, will surely be back”
Reviewed January 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

This is the third time I have stayed at Min Y Don with my wife, mother, and other friends/family members, and it has been a delight every time. Beautiful house, pool, location, well equipped with everything you could need, prompt and attentive on-site assistance if there are any problems (which there were not), including shopping in advance for groceries we would need on arrival

“"A beautiful spot that was absolutely perfect for us"”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My enjoyment of Min-Y-Don started long before our actual adventure began. Sian W., the owner, provided, in advance of our arrival, a FAQ sheet on the property and on Montserrat Island which was of tremendous value. She also promptly and thoroughly answered all my many additional questions.

Once there, after dark, our first impressions was ""is that really the surf we hear crashing below"? The weather and sea had been unsettled for several days previous; it was particularly dramatic. Later, as the seas calmed and the waves mellowed, the song changed. Powerful or soothing, it became our Christmas Carol of choice. In the 10 days we were there near the end of December, we never turned on the television, radio, or any electronic device, and were never tempted to do so.

By day, the view is stunning. The ever changing Caribbean Sea, the tiny island of Redondo, and Nevis in the distance. In addition, the view from the upper deck includes a lovely one of the very private Woodland's Beach far below.

We enjoyed many fine times on this unspoiled island: hiking the Oriole Walkway with the excellent trail guide "Scriber", an adventurous boat ride to Rendezvous Beach with Andrew, a very comprehensive tour of the northern portion of the island with tour guide Joe Phillips, and a delicious meal at Ziggy's (in a tent!!), to name only a few. Nonetheless, our finest moments were those spent at this lovely, secluded, well constructed and appointed villa. We ate, gazed, and just "chilled" on the deck. My husband spent so much time there, binoculars in hand, that we think a particular chair need a plaque saying "Bill's Place".

Earlier reviews are brimming with additional accolades, so read on. One clear night, with all the lights in the villa extinguished, we viewed the most magnificent night sky I have seen in many, many years. Light hearted moments include a large iguana in the pool, who stubbornly held his ground despite attempts to oust him/her, and an adopted chicken who we came to adore, and who ended up eating all the oats we brought along for our special oatmeal.

If you are looking for an unspoiled island, with no cruise ships, very little crime, no hotels, no tipping, no credit card use, and with sincerely friendly locals who are eager to help, and make your stay a totally positive experience, I would say Montserrat and Min-Y-Don are right for you as well.

“Rest and relaxation in fabulous surroundings!”

person found this review helpful

This was my second stay at Min-Y-Don. One always wonders whether to return to somewhere you have stayed at before in case the memories one had of the first visit could not be repeated? This was not the case for I felt I was 'coming home' again. I had the downstairs apartment, fully equipped and very very comfortable, great shower and wonderfully soft linen.
At the end of a long day ( I was there on business, really!) to be able to relax with a G&T looking out at the sunset, and the small island of Redondo in the distance with the lights of St Kitts twinkling on the horizon... Bliss.
And Yes I did see the green flash!
Cooling off in the pool, a light supper then early to bed for the early mornings on Montserrat are not to missed as iguana climb the trees to catch the first warmth of the sun, the Montserrat Oriole calling from the Sea almond tree, the scent of frangi pani and the sound of the waves breaking on the shore below.
It was so hard to leave this oasis each day BUT what a place to come home to each evening!
I am looking forward to my return trip next March.

“A little piece of heaven in the Carribean”

A little piece of heaven in the Carribean and a holiday of a lifetime!

Min Y Don has tranquility, spectacular sunsets and a 180 degree of the Carribean with very convenient access to the whole of the Island and it was the inspiration for 2 songs on the Album I recorded after my visit there.

Outstanding!

“Great place to be alone yet near to everything. Gorgeous cliffside views!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 for a stay in January 2012

We watched this villa turn into a wonderful visitor's destination when the present owners turned it into their own home away from home while opening it to share with the world as well. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to return to the island and be able to stay at Min Y Don. So close to Woodlands Beach, so close to the best places on the island to eat, and yet so secluded you can enjoy your own private world here. Beautiful pool, beautiful surroundings, beautiful accoutrements with a gourmet's kitchen to boot. To sit on the upstairs deck at night and hear the tree frog's songs with the sounds of the waves below as a background, it's a wonderful place to discover while rediscovering yourselves... Thank you, Sian and Peter.
