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.

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.

The apartment was well equipped with everything a family of four would need for a holiday, the pool and gardens were well maintained and Jenny who looks after the guests really could not do more to make your holiday enjoyable. Would recommend Antigua as an Island as the locals are fantastic and the beaches sunning.

We have stayed at various locations in antigua but Willoughby Villa has to be one of the best. We met Rolston at the property on arrival who gave us the walk round of the house , letting us know where things are etc , walking into that lounge/dinning room and seeing that view was magical. We met Jean later on . Both are fantastic people who gave us lots of tips , what taxi people to use , where nearest shops where etc.Great hosts The house is a beautiful house more than enough space for my family of 7, bedrooms are all big enough for large groups without being overcrowded and kitchen very well equipped.The pool, oh the pool , i spent most of my early mornings and late eveings in that beautiful pool . Fantastic fresh water pool. Overall myself and my family spent a fantastic 2 week holiday at Willoughby Villa , great views , great house , great hosts . Downside, i didnt buy the red velvet cake , lol Looking forward to return very soon. Thank you Jean and Rolston Xx

We were met by Lava at the airport, which is much appreciated after a long flight. He took us to the villa where we were greeted by Yasmine, who showed us around and filled us in with any info that we needed to know. The villa was the perfect size for us, the kids loved having their own spacious bathrooms. There is plenty of shaded seating areas outside and we enjoyed eating outside every evening. The house itself is very spacious and the laundry room with a washer and dryer was useful. The kitchen has everything that you might need. The air conditioning was excellent. We found the nights very warm and it was great to be able to stay cool in the bedrooms. The swimming pool is well maintained and quite large. We enjoyed seeing lots of wildlife in the garden, including mongoose,lizards, tree frogs, the biggest moth ever, egrets and humming birds.The villa is in an excellent location. It is very quiet and private, yet there are many facilities nearby. We enjoyed using the fish and chip bus and the pizza take away opposite. There are 4 amazing beaches within a 5 min drive. They have white sand, clear, turquoise water and are really quiet. It honestly was like paradise! We particularly liked Darkwood Beach, which has a great restaurant with sun beds and the best cocktails ever! The snorkelling is good there too, we saw many types of fish and some squid. If you want more activities on the beach, Jolly Harbour beach is more lively. Many tourist attractions are within 30 mins drive. We enjoyed zip wiring in the rainforest, visiting Shirley Heights and swimming with stingrays. We also went on a great boat trip with Adventure Antigua, which picked us up at Jolly Harbour, a 5 min car journey. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Yasmine was very helpful and we felt well looked after. We felt very safe and welcomed everywhere that we went. I can't recommend Coco Villa highly enough! Thanks Roger for always answering my queries before the trip and for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
