My wife and I have travelled extensively all of our 30+ years of married life, we came by chance to this lovely island for 2 weeks in 1995 - our first visit to the Caribbean and stayed in the famous Vue Pointe Hotel, located just below this property. We originally had no intention of purchasing but like so many other first time visitors to Montserrat we fell in love with the island and and bought our place in Paradise

John & Clodagh Maher-Loughnan purchased this villa in 1995

When we decided to look for a holiday property in 1995, there was a good selection of suitable villas to purchase. Flamboyant, which has only had one previous owner since it was built in 1978, stood out from the rest because of the fabulous views that we had from our balcony and pool deck including the wonderful 12 hole golf course 500 feet below us - sadly now burried under volcanic sand. However there are now plans to rebuild the course and hopefully a decision will be forthcoming in late 2013.

Thankfully we have not had any significant volcanic activity for a number of years but in past years but islanders used to come and park up the road and watch and photo the then most active volcano in the world. We were captivated as we used to watch it glow and explode at night from the safe location of our balcony but even today there are still spectacular and ever changing views of the volcano as the clouds lift to reveal the mountain peak, the dome of the volcano -all part of the awesome beauty of Mother Nature.

FLAMBOYANT, MONTSERRAT

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 16-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2013
Flamboyant is a south to south-west facing property which is dramatically situated high on a fertile valley slope with spectacular views to the opposite valley side, the Soufriere mountains to the left and the Caribbean Sea to the right. The property and its situation are immediately impressive from the moment one enters the driveway. The scenic views are dramatic and spectacular and remain in the memory long after returning home from the Island – qualities which are, I believe, essential for a holiday location.

A beautifully maintained, immaculate and attractive property, Flamboyant has all the amenities, facilities and equipment that one would need on a holiday or stay of virtually any duration. The particulars describe it perfectly. The decoration is in excellent order and the all the furnishings are delightful and very comfortable. Meals may be taken indoors or al fresco on the terrace overlooking the pool and the wonderful views beyond.

There is a range of restaurants, bistros and eating establishments to suit all pockets and tastes (from the relatively simple yet delicious, to the more gastronomic), some within walking distance and others within a few minutes’ drive. The opportunities for scenic walks are virtually limitless.

In short, my wife and I have no hesitation in unreservedly recommending Flamboyant as an outstanding venue for an extremely comfortable and relaxing holiday on the stunning island of Montserrat.

Stevens family stay at Flamboyant December 1995

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 11-Mar-2013
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2012
We stayed at this delightful house in December 1995 with our teenage children.
The house has wonderful views and was in immaculate condition.The owners did everything to make our stay most enjoyable. Even though Plymouth had been evacuated at this time, they arranged for some fascinating tours and expeditions, and we ate at some excellent restaurants. We very much enjoyed the golf course which was then still in operation. We would without hesitation recommend not only this property but also Montserrat as a fascinating and unspoilt holiday destination
Owner's Response: This family were the first of many to stay at Flamboyant and was a memorable holiday for them as well as ourselves. Apart from the parents we also accommodated their two teenage children, which meant that the dining area was converted into a third bedroom and they slept on floor mattresses but it worked out well and a good holiday was had by all. The real sadness at that time was witnessing the mass evacuation of Plymouth as the capital's location to the then active volcano was too close for comfort. The other memorable story about their visit was that when we arrived at the house a ftwo weeks before them, there had just been a minor earth tremour, which loosened all the tiles near the front porch and prevented our entrance through the front door. Trying to get the tiles replaced within a week was quite a challenge but we did it thanks to the friendly spirit of the Montserratians.

Most visitors arrive here on island at the John Osborne Airport in the North while a few of the brave ones opt for the longer ferry crossing into Little Bay - All are struck by the mountainous, very lush terrain and most importantly the warm welcome from the residents of Montserrat with its strong Irish Heritage dating back to 1600's. It does not take long to realise that you have arrived in Paradise when your passport is stamped with a shamrock, where the Patron Saint is St Patrick and 75% of the names in the local telephone directory are from Irish Origin. An interesting fact is that slavery was abolished in Montserrat before the Wilberforce Act was inacted,in 1807 so many of the slaves, unlike those on the other Caribbean islands, who returned to West Africa, decided to stay and marry the Irish slaves and indented servants and this undoubtedly produced the very friendly nature of the residents of Montserrat.

As a consequence - Montserrat is the closest you will get to visiting an Irish Colony with the added security of a resident British Governor, who is responsible for Law and Order on one of the few remaining British Independent Overseas Territories.

It is thanks to the UK Government, that vast sums of money have been spent to keep Montserrat open with a population of only 5,000 compared with 12,000 prior to 1995, when the volcano first erupted. Now, after 3 years of no significant volcanic activity, the scientists have decreed that it is more likely for Montserrat to be hit by a hurricane than to see the resumption of volcanic activity. So now the use of the British Government Aid Fund is more directed towards capital projects to reflect this positive outlook from the volcanologists. In March 2013, in order to reduce very high energy costs, an Icelandic company will start to drill for Geothermal Energy,

approval has been given by the UK for £8m to be spent over the next 4 years for the construction of a new hospital on the foot print of the existing one. Plans are also in an advanced stage for the development of the island’s new capital in Little Bay together with construction of a surrounding luxury villa complex. This is also the location of the Montserrat Cultural Centre, which was constructed a few years ago thanks to the generosity of Sir George Martin, who had a recording studio here in the 1970’s that was used by the Beatles, Sting, Boy George and Eric Clapton to name but a few.

You will soon realise that Montserrat is a villa not a hotel island, which adds to its charm without the commercialism of casinos and dubious night clubs yet you will find there is more than enough to keep you occupied if you only ask. We have provided a comprehensive set of notes for visitors and when read in conjunction with the Tourism Board published booklet, you will soon find you way around the island.

You might well ask , why should we stay in Flamboyant rather than any other Montserrat villa available for rental. Well our villa is our holiday home not an investment property – over the past 17 years we have tried to improve the comfort of our home for our benefit and that of the many friends and tenants that have stayed either with us or on their own. We are most fortunate to have Martin and his wife Aidee look after our home the whole year round so they keep the property and our

1 acre garden in A1 condition. When we purchased Flamboyant in 1995, we were located in the middle of the island 1995, now we are in the extreme South of the habitable part of the island. As such we are located in the rural part of the island in the company of free range chickens and wild life such as Iguanas and Agoutis roaming through our gardens, while at night in the surrounding bushes we are entertained to a concert of tree frogs conversing to the crickets. One aspect that will amaze you most is the clarity of the night sky with so many stars, planets and satellites that you are unlikely to have seen before.

One other major appealing feature of our house are the outstanding views from our balcony, whether you are curious about those walking on the beach, the fisherman’s catch of the day, the numerous cruise ships and yachts which pass us by or the spectacular mountains in the distance.

So whether you want to hang out around the pool with a Rum & Coke, top up your tan in the pool, lounge in the garden under the shade of the Flamboyant Tree reading a book or perhaps you might be seeking an energetic holiday with hikes into the mountains after that early morning game of tennis, all of this is available on your doorstep.

If you are unfortunate to select a week that our property is already occupied, may we suggest that you consider renting Lime Tree House ( Property Ref No 3500990 ) , which is directly below our villa and has shares many of the views of our house.

Notes:
A Visit to either the top of Garibaldi Hill or Richmond Hill in the uninhabited part of the island are a must to view the devastation of the island's old capital - Plymouth. A visit to the deserted Air Studios owned by Sir George Martin and where the likes to The Beatles, Boy George, Sting, Eric Clapton recorded some of their best albums is high on the Agenda of most visitors. For those seeking adventure then a guided hike into the mountains may appeal in search of the famous Montserrat Oriel, Mountain Chicken ( Large Frogs) and other wild life unique to Montserrat. For those who are divers then a search of the old coral reef for fish only seen in these waters might be the climax of a super holiday. Drink the water at Runaway Gaut to ensure your return to the beautiful island of Montserrat
