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.

Fabulous Family Vacation

5 of 5
We had an altogether great holiday on Antigua. Although our inbound flight was delayed we we're greeted, as arranged, at the airport by a friendly representative of the car hire company that Willoughby's owners had recommended to us. He then drove us to the Willoughby property. His service was most helpful and uncomplicated. Do ask the Michaels for his service. Willoughby is situated directly on the waterfront of a peaceful bay. The views are unspoilt and second to none. The garden has been lovingly kept and offers practical spaces for bbqing, hanging out the laundry, and relaxing in the sun or shade. The pool was lovely! Salt water, no chemicals! There are sun loungers too. There is a constant refreshing breeze which helps keep mosquitoes at bay. Although the temperatures are high we had no need of the AC which is installed in every bedroom. Willoughby is fully furbished and the kitchen is very well stocked. We had everything we needed for our family vacation. There were even some great toys for our toddler and a baby's cot. We felt immediately comfortable and at home. Many thanks Michael family for this wonderful home from home. We would certainly book again. Yours, S, L, F

Laid back week in the sun

4 of 5
The owners arranged for a taxi to collect us from the airport and met us at the villa to show us around. They had provided essentials for us - milk, bread, fruit juice, margarine, tea, coffee, wine & biscuits which were lovely to have available after the journey. There were helpful labels and bits of information around the villa explaining which switch did what and some of the power outlets were British standard. The villa was equipped with everything we needed and all worked well. The sun shone on the rear patio from morning until around 1 p.m. The beautiful beach was a 2 minute stroll away and had a vibrant bar (Castaways) with a happy hour from 16:30 - 18:30. The main reception area with a variety of restaurants and bars and a well stocked supermarket was a 10 minute leisurely stroll away. For those of limited mobility there are golf carts for hire on site. If you like some island experience, there are local small buses which take you into St Johns for EC$3.25 each way (£0.95) in 15-20 minutes. The owners were staying next door for the first half of our stay and remained very approachable, helpful, friendly and concerned that we were having a good time. I would certainly stay here again when I next visit Antigua.
