Villa Cleaning: Our housekeeper will meet you at the villa upon your arrival to see you are settled in. The villa will be cleaned and beds changed after the first week for stays of two weeks, and after each week for longer stays, up to one month, although it is well stocked with extra linen and towels for your convenience.
Note: Villa is self catering which means paper towels, toilet paper, dishwasher soap, basic essentials are provided as a starter pack. Once used, guests will need to replenish.
Villa Property Management Company: Our property management company can arrange a taxi to pick you up at the airport for a nominal fee of $35US. While the Antiguan rate is approximately $24US, this service would not provide you with door to door service to our villa, plus wait time if your flight is delayed.
Our Property Manager can also pre arrange a car/golf cart so you can enjoy your holiday right from the onset of your arrival.
We would be more than happy to assist you upon your booking.
It has been brought to our attention that if you do rent a car, you must register the vehicle with the complex's CDAL Security Office located at the entrance of the complex (White Office Building). There is a charge of $10US to register the vehicle. CDAL Security is not open on the weekends, but is open Mon-Fri from 9 am to 4 pm. This is an added security feature to the overall complex.
Deck and Finger Pier: We have added a deck and finger pier built onto the patio, which makes the whole area double the size. The decking lets you sunbathe for longer into the evening, and has lights set into the deck for evening use.The finger pier allows you to fish further out or use for mooring a boat. The extended deck and finger pier were just redone to it's natural wood finish, flower/plant pots added as well as additional sunbeds. We added New Patio Doors in September of 2012. Recently we added a new patio set with 6 chairs to enjoy al fresco dining on the veranda.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This was a special villa, so many extra touches that say this is so not just a rental villa; it is your home and was so well equipped. My son and I enjoyed breakfast on the deck of Villa Emerald Dreams plus my son slept 8 hours a day for the 1st time since he was born!
Our memories of the island: Half Moon Bay with only 2 other people there, pig roast & bonfire at Castaways, Shirley Heights and the view was spectacular, sunsets from Jackie O's, snorkelling, traveling around the island in a hire car and just swimming in the turquoise sea....oh zip line was fun too!
Thank you Paul and Tara for a most enjoyable reunion with my son at your lovely villa!
