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 was in a beautiful location and was made up to feel like a home away from home. Wifi was provided as well and this worked fine, if a bit slow at times. The only drawback is that the villa is about a 25 min walk to the entrance of the complex so you really need a car or a golf buggy to get round. We hired a car so this issue was soon solved. I would definitely recommend this villa. Both the space and the hospitality were on point.

A beautiful property, Cactus House lives up to it's description, photographs and many positive reviews. As a party of seven (myself, husband, our two grown up daughters and their partners and our 15 year old son) the accommodation was perfect, four bedrooms all with en-suite, well spaced out across the ground floor of the property, upstairs a huge open area with lounge, dining area and kitchen and a very large verandah to the side and front of the property overlooking the pool and the view ... oh the view!!! There was plenty of space for everyone to spread around but we found ourselves always migrating to the verandah just gazing across the picture perfect landscape, taking in the beautiful bay and the watching the sun set right in front of us. The infinity pool was something else, a perfect size, silky water, a light show at night and the same views as from the verandah - so hard to get out of! The location was also perfect for us, we could walk to various local restaurants (Miracles is superb for local food), the supermarket, harbour and 4 different beaches (our favourite was Valley Church). The driver who collected us from the airport was a lovely guy and a proud Antiguan (Big Lava). We hired him to take us on a few trips across the island during our stay, he was a superb guide and knew everyone! Hazel, who looks after the house, was equally lovely and even bought a birthday cake for our daughter who celebrated her 30th birthday while we were there (the purpose of our trip!), so thoughtful :) We found Antigua to be a wonderful island, the landscape, the people, the climate, the food ...... we all rated this trip as our best ever holiday ..... the only negative thing .... having to leave :( !!
