Make a holiday rental beach house or villa in Antigua your home away from home

Antigua is situated in the Eastern Caribbean and is the largest and most populated island in the country of Antigua and Barbuda. Antigua claims to have a different beach for every day of the year, but it is only the extremely fortunate who will ever be able to test this theory! I can confirm however that there are enough delightful coves covered in powdery soft white sand and lapped serenely but warm, crystal clear waters to keep anyone staying in Antigua accommodation extremely happy.

Things to do in Antigua, Caribbean

The lifestyle of Antigua is unsurprisingly influenced by the sea. Sports both on and in the water thrive, with spectacular snorkelling, diving, swimming, fishing, windsurfing, sailing and kite-surfing. One of the top-three regattas in the world happens in Antigua. The Antigua Sailing Week in May brings sailing enthusiast flocking to the islands, making Antigua accommodation like gold dust, but if you take a rental villa early, all will be well.

On land, the unspoilt landscape of Antigua is a haven for a rich abundance of bird and animal life. Nature trails throughout the island not only take you to the best artificial sites of the island, like the exotic hilltop forts which proudly depict the history of the island, but also give you the opportunity to see some of the delightful wildlife. From a villa in Antigua you can investigate many natural phenomenons, from blow holes to the famous Devil’s Bridge.

The long and tumultuous history of Antigua makes for fascinating exploration. The Museum of Antigua and Barbuda tells the story of the islands, and shows you some of the most intriguing places to investigating.

Of course, despite the enormous wealth of entertainment, on the island (especially during the famous Antigua Carnival), there is often nothing better than simply relaxing on the beach or in your self catering Antigua holiday rental with a rum cocktail and soaking up the sun, sounds and sights of this beautiful island paradise.

Places to go on holiday in Antigua, Caribbean

Nelson’s Dockyard in the English Harbour (where Admiral Lord Nelson originally anchored his fleet) is the sailing Mecca on the island, attracting huge numbers of seafarers and a vast fleet of yachts.

Weather in Antigua, Caribbean

Antigua has a glorious and almost constant climate. Whenever you feel like you need to completely relax in blissful sunshine, an Antiguan villa provides the answer, basking as they do in daily temperatures of between 27 and 32˚C all year round.

Travel to Antigua, Caribbean

A dream holiday in Antigua is not as far away as you might think. The V.C. Bird International Airport receives three weekly flights from London every week supplied by either British Airways or Virgin Atlantic, meaning you can be stretched out on one of Antigua’s glorious beaches in just 8 hours.

It is large, clean, comfortable and has everything you could need. Hazel, Lava and other staff all ensured that the whole experience from airport and back was just so very easy. One of the best. We did rent a car for a week of our ten day stay so that we could visit the beautiful beaches more easily. We recommend Stingray City and Nelson's Dockyard as places to visit. We loved the restaurant "Miracles" and went three times. The other restaurants in the area that we tried seemed to us to offer less quality for higher prices although the views from some make them still worth a visit! We would love to return one day. Antigua and Coco House are quite simply good for the soul.

This is a well equipped and spacious villa in a great location. Good value too. Our friends joined us last minute and the two bedrooms both with en-suite was a bonus. The kitchen is fairly small but very well equipped with plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery and cooking utensils to cook on the large American style cooker. The main sitting area opens out to a large terrace with a wonderful view of the water way with a jetty. The master bedroom is very large with patio windows opening out to a private balcony, big enough for a couple of sun beds. There is a very well stocked supermarket 10 minutes walk away selling Waitrose 'essentials' range which was most strange. The only downside was how expensive it was but we found this to be the case with most of Antigua. Not helped by the exchange rate. Paul, the villa owner has been exceptionally helpful throughout. He happily answered the many questions we had and when we had a fault with the AC unit during our stay he communicated with HBK, the managing agents to get it fixed. HBK were helpful and friendly and its worth speaking with them if you have any problems or queries during your stay. We didn't need the golf buggy, however, we like walking and we saw so much more of the bird and wild life during our walks. If you wanted to go to North Beach which is a bit quieter, you might need a buggy for that purpose. We found a very quiet area of South Beach right at the far end. A 15 minute slow stroll away. There were no facilities there but if you like a peaceful day then its worth a visit. The buggy would have been useful for shopping but as there were four of us we shared the load. Trips. We hired a car for 2 days. Be careful who you go with. We were recommended Pineapple Rentals by a few people and were told to avoid Budget Rentals. This enabled us to do a complete tour of the island. Driving was easy despite the pot holes. Speed limit is slow and quite pleasurable. Left hand drive for us UK folks made it a dream. Stingray City - a must do trip. Loved every minute of it. Catamaran snorkling trip (Mystic 2). The catamaran was great fun with an open bar, music and good food. We had a small group which made it fun and friendly. The snorkling off the reef is not for beginners. We would happily return to this villa again if we return to Antigua. Sue & Dave

The villa is situated on the south finger and is literally a 2 minute walk to the most stunning beach , white sand terquoise sea , a beach bar for refreshments . We did hire a buggy for a few nights to explore but on 20 dollars a day . ( don't settle for the first price they offer you for beach beds / umbrellas!!!!!) We ate at some lovely restaurants Melinas , al Porto mayday on the resort then further a folds o j s , Catherine's and coconut grove . Good to get out and explore some of the other amazing beaches too , nelsons dock yard , Shirley heights . I particularly enjoyed watching the reggae band "survivors" at the crows nest on Friday evenings . The villa itself is well equipped and cooked at home a few times as well as a BBQ . Was handy to have a washing machine too , no complaints . Had a fab time and would hope to return next year ( travelled with my husband and 2 children ) Last but not least our best day was going out on captain reds sail boat red sails , we went snorkelling sailed the day away and red made us delicious food HIGHLY recommend !!!!!
