If you’re looking for peace, quiet and the true flavour of Antigua LOOK NO FURTHER! We Loved this hidden gem and all it had to offer. The owners, Dianne and Mr.G, couldn’t have been any more accommodating. From renting cars, delivered right to your seaside barstool, to equipping you with all you need to set up camp at your own private beach for the day.Our host made it easy and beyond affordable at $125 a night and a Hot Breakfast included!
We’ve travel to the Caribbean twice every winter and always to all inclusives. This was our first vacation out of our comfort zone and exceeded all our expectations. The atmosphere is beyond laid back. The beach and water is beautiful and pretty much deserted most days. 2 or 3 days a week the cruise ships come to port in St’John’s and run tours at the opposite end of the beach . 20-30 people was the most we experienced any day. Most days we were the only people on the beach, it was like vacationing as the rich and famous would only without having all the $$ in the bank.
The apartments have charm overlooking the ocean. They are in need of cosmetic repairs, window screens, new screen doors, window handles as I’ve heard others complain of but it is so minor in the Big Picture it’s hardly worth mentioning. The view from the balcony is amazing! We watched Pelicans dive-bombing a few hundred feet from our balcony every morning as small local birds snacked on breadcrumbs inches from our morning coffee. Each evening sipping Caribe’s on the same balcony the most extraordinary sunsets we’ve ever experienced mesmerized us. The sun slowly slinks away between Mt.Montserrat (an active volcano) and St. Lucia in the distance every evening painting the sky a dissimilar palate without fail. What a magical way to say goodbye to the sun each day, perfect vacation memories.
Another Diamond in the 3 Martinis vacationers crown is a charming Englishman whom answers to the name of Richard Lee (AKA Master Chef! ) .Pure character with a zany flair for life and food. You’ll want to pack Mr. Lee in your suitcase and bring him home with you. Antigua will soon sing the praises of Mr. Lee’s cooking brilliance. His simple straight forward home cooking style mixed with panache for adding the perfect flavour is unrivalled! If you’re lucky he’ll play you a classic tune or two on his acoustic guitar while enjoying a cold caribe (local beer) as dinner settles. Richard, dinner time at home here just isn’t the same anymore, we miss you.
3 Martinis is the perfect launching pad for all your Antigua adventures. In the mist of the local Crab Hill community we experienced nothing but welcoming smiles from everyone we met. You can walk the beach in and out of hidden deserted coves for miles or catch the local bus for 3 EC that will take you to St.John’s to explore for the day, it’s all easy and laid back.
We’ll be back to 3 Martinis to visit our new friends Dianne, Mr G and Mr Lee the next time we need our batteries recharged from the chaotic pace of today’s world. We still have 340 more of Antigua 365 amazing beaches to explore and all within a 1 hour drive from our new home away from home 3 Martinis
