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.

We stayed for two weeks and our group consisted of 6 adults and 2 Young children. The Villa is immaculate and spacious, you can see that Sue who is the owner takes so much pride and passion in even the smallest of details. Everything looks Brandnew. The Villa is equipped with everything you could imagine, from small details like a Cocktail blender to cool boxes to take to the beach. Bed linen, towels, beach towels were a plenty. Barbecue outside, so clean we felt guilty for using it ! Aircon and fans throughout the property. You can even change the colour of the lighting in the kitchen by remote control. Great strereo, that had a good bass and wasn't tinny. The Management Company were brilliant, came out every 3-4 days to clean the house from top to bottom and regularly came by to treat the pool and check everything was ok. Very professional and friendly. Outside area was great, beautiful landscaped garden that attracted Hummingbirds and many other birds. Plenty of sun loungers and out door seating. The love seat, great for taking time out and reading a book. The Swimming pool was great, big enough to swim or to just take a dip Location wise, you couldn't ask for better. Jolly harbour has fingers and the problem with this is that it that if you are located on one of those fingers it's a distance to anywhere. Calabash is based on the Palm ( looking at my hand as I write!). So everything is close to hand, everything is 5-10 mins walk. The Supermarket and the Marina being the closest, this is also where the core of the restaurants are. Beach is a stroll of about 10 mins and Jolly beach is fantastic. You can hire Golf Carts out for about £15 a day, you can use these all over jolly harbour and much fun. If you instead walk to the left out of the property you will see a children's play area that is 2 mins walk, there are many cheap places to eat and in some cases as cheap as the Supermarket. Island Pizza and the Red London bus which does Fish and chips to name a few. I would like to thank Sue and the Management Company for making us feel so welcomed, before and after we landed. Always happy and quick to answer any questions, however trivial. Thank you from myself and all the Family. Calabash will stay in hearts and Memories forever

No photograph could ever do the views from the veranda and in fact, all the rooms of the house, justice. The villa itself is incredibly stylish and comfortable, we spent lazy days by the infinity pool in perfect surroundings enjoying the ambiance. Rachel and Lawrence are impressively well organised and helpful and have thought through every detail of the home and they also have great local knowledge of the area. I thoroughly recommend a stay in this home and the area of Sugar Ridge on the beautiful island of Antigua.
