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.

Spacious, super clean, all mod cons and great local staff. We have stayed in Antigua many times but this is by far the best accomodation we have stayed in. Many thanks Clare, your high standards do you proud.

Our week in Jolly Apartments was absolutely perfect. We were greeted by Loura with the management company. They arranged our transport from the airport, golf cart, anything we needed. She had a cell phone and golf cart waiting for us. The apartment was clean, comfortable and updated with all of the modern amenities. The apartment provided you with a fully equipped kitchen, beach towels, everything you'll need. The location is perfect to the beach, shopping and amazing restaurants. Each day we found ourselves walking or golf-carting to the supermarket just down the road. While Jolly Harbour beach is one of the most beautiful in the world, we did wander to other beaches within just a few miles of this location - Valley Church, Little Ffreyes and Ffreyes. We can't wait to return.

We were a family group of 8 adults and found there was plenty of space, seating, kitchen equipment and outdoor furniture. Good sized swimming pool. Reasonably close, approx 10 minutes walk, to large supermarket, restaurants and a further 5 minutes walk on to the beautiful beach, ideal for swimming, sunbathing and partying at the local bar, Castaways. The management team were easy to get in touch with, approachable and charming. Would highly recommend this villa. The owner was most helpful in answering various questions before we started the holiday. We rented cars for 4 days from Sunny Rentals who delivered them to the villa and were very efficient.
