Min-y-Don is a privately owned villa in a secluded location perched on the cliff with breathtaking views of Redonda and Nevis across the Caribbean, as well as the Montserrat hills inland. Situated at the end of a small road, the only sounds you will hear are from the sea and the wildlife - birds, tree-frogs and crickets. Set in a large mature garden with its own private 30 foot long tiled pool, this is the perfect location for complete rest and relaxation in the privacy of your own 'home'. Woodlands Beach, which you will usually have to yourself, is just 10 minutes walk away. The whole house sleeps 6 and is set out on two levels with external stairs and separate entrances.

Set in a large mature garden with its own private 30 foot long tiled pool, this is the perfect location for complete rest and relaxation in the privacy of your own 'home'. Woodlands Beach, which you will usually have to yourself, is just 10 minutes walk away. The whole house sleeps 6 and is set out on two levels with external stairs and separate entrances. The upper level is usually occupied by the owners from Nov - April, but downstairs self-contained apartment is available then, at much reduced rates. The master bedroom & bathroom are on the upper level, along with ample seating and dining areas, inside and out and full kitchen - ideal for a couple. Downstairs there are a 4 further single beds (3 rooms) and 2 bathrooms, along with a full kitchen and sitting/dining areas on lower level, with outside seating. The downstairs apartment is available for self-catering rental at times when the owner is staying upstairs. The owner will give you as much privacy as you wish, including not using the pool whilst you are staying, but will also be happy to help with airport transfers, shopping for your arrival, advising on visits, restaurants etc. See reviews which include those from guests who have stayed in the downstairs apartment with the owners 'upstairs'.More

Interaction with guests
Between mid November & mid April, the owners (1 couple) will be living upstairs but if you are interested in renting the downstairs only, the rent is US$125 /night for one couple sharing room (2 singles or 1 master), en suite shower room, WC. Private use of kitchen; pool; inside & outside sitting areas. We would be around to meet you at airport, give suggestions for trips etc. but you would still need to hire your own car as we are off the beaten track! Many of the reviews are from couples who have stayed downstairs whilst we are upstairs.

About the neighborhood
The location is fairly secluded, but with a few other residential homes within walking distance. You can walk to Woodlands Beach (about 10 minutes) but it is hilly. The beach has a shower, changing rooms & toilet, but no other amenities. The house is right on the cliff, looking directly over the Caribbean Sea, providing magnificent views of the sunsets, which can be spectacular specially when you see the Green Flash as the sun disappears below the horizon.
Getting around
There are no other amenities or shops within walking distance, so a hire car is strongly recommended. There is ample parking on the property. You must get a local driving licence from the Police Station before driving - you must produce your driving licence from your own country & the fee is EC $ 50. Alternatively, there are buses which run fairly regularly on the main road throughout the daytime - the main road is up a hill from the house and is about 20 minute walk.
