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.

The apartment is comfortable and really well equipped with a great balcony, terrific sports coverage on the TV and wonderful film channels. No need for a car, walked to the local supermarket at Jolly Harbour, ate locally, walked to Valley Church beach.....the Nest has the best coconut shrimps and what a beach, go when there are no cruise ships in...bliss. Pool is private and a few steps for drinks, we will be back again.

It has a lovely view out to the lake and Darkwood beach. The road to the villa is quite bumpy - but this is common in Antigua. The villa was very well equipped and comfortable to stay in with good sized bedrooms, and a lovely open kitchen lounger area upstairs with outside eating area. It will be even nicer once the garden has grown to be green again and the other plot has been built on - we did not use the pool much as lovely beaches were so close. It was a great spot to be able to explore the rest of the island from. The owners and managers were very helpful providing information for our holiday and making us feel very welcome.
