“A quiet paradise on the edge of the ocean for those wanting to get away from it all.”
Reviewed February 23, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Min-y-Don offers the breathtaking view of the oceans, the sounds of crashing waves 24-7 and the songs of the tree frogs at night. You will find excellent sleeping accommodations; a nice kitchen and a super pool to take away all concerns.
The hosts, Peter and Sian, are second to none. They looked after our every need with Q and A sheets to guide us to their door and steer us around the wonderful green island in the Caribbean called Montserrat. No issues with bugs or security.
The perfect place on the perfect island if you want to get away from it all.

“Lovely experience!”
Reviewed December 6, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

The owners of this property made this booking for my clients as easy as ever! After working on this booking for over a month and not getting anywhere fast, Sian and her husband, gave me everything I had been looking for! They have gone above and beyond for getting everything that they may need for their trip. I would highly suggest this property for anyone who is looking to get a real taste of what the Island has to offer!

I will be over there one day!!!

“The perfect location”
Reviewed May 4, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Min-y-don

Just back from a fabulous stay at this delightful home in Montserrat. It's extremely comfortable and very peaceful. It has every amenity, a huge pool, private gardens and the most stunning views. The whole island is a treasure, and min-y-don a jewel.

“Beautiful Min-y-don Montserrat”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Min-y-Don

We recently spent 2 glorious weeks staying at Min-y-Don and are already discussing a return visit. The house is spacious, bright and very comfortably kitted out. The sea views are wonderful and the sunsets just stunning. There are generous terraces (+shade) with views all around. The house sits so close to the sea - you can look down at the beach and enjoy the changing wave patterns. The swimming pool is huge and inviting and well maintained, as are the lush gardens. The house has all kitchen amenities you could wish for, and excellent fridge/freezer faculties.

Min-y-Don is located above Woodlands beach which is a stroll away if you want a little exercise, but there's plenty of parking at all times. We never experienced more than, maybe, 15 people on the beach at any time. Locally there are supermarkets and a selection of great restaurants / eateries, and atmospheric village bars / cafés.

We had a relaxing, interesting and exciting time there, exploring all corners of the island. The recent and past history, with regard to the volcano and hurricanes, add an element of local history and empathy to the Montserrat experience The climate in Montserrat was just perfect, less scorching than our few days in Antigua.

“Spacious, luxury rooms with an unbeatable aspect.”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We spent a fantastic week at this villa. It is beautiful in all respects. Very quiet, except for the sound of the sea and wildlife all around. Rooms are superb, large, airy and bug screened. The terrace is wonderful; shaded, breezy and with a panoramic view straight out to sea. Perfect for sundowners. Lovely pool. When we return to the West Indies, Min-y-Don on the island of Montserrat will be the only place to go. Will certainly recommend to all our friends.

“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.
