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.

Coco house

5 of 5
The overall stay at coco was all we anticipated and more. Roger is a fantastic person and he responds. Wet quickly to any questions asked. Hazel the housekeeper is amazing and no job is to big. The villa is clean and met all of our needs. The cooker is a bit slow and the utensils could do with updating however everything else at the villa is just fantastic. Who cares about pots and cookers when your in paradise. The pool is great and the outdoor seating areas are great to sit and chill on in the evening .. the villa is close to the beaches (valley church and jolly beach) and other amenities like the supermarket and good places to eat. So good was our stay and so impressed with the owner roger and his staff that we are booked to return next year.. go on do it you know u want too.. happy holiday

Fabulous location. Tranquil surroundings.

4 of 5
We've chose Hamilton House for its location. Near the gorgeous beaches at Darkwood, Ffryes and Valley Church, and the convenience of the Jolly Harbour bars, restaurants, shops and fabulous beach. The booking procedure all went smoothly and the airport transfers happened as promised. The apartment was clean and spacious. We spent much of the time that we were at the apartment outside enjoying the peace and the views. Jenny Hadeed was attentive as were the cleaners. The weather was so glorious we were glad of the pool to cool off! I would give the apt the extra star if the bathrooms were updated. The rest of the accommodation was lovely.

Fabulous villa in amazing Antigua!

5 of 5
Lakeside is a beautifully luxurious villa with incredible views over Darkwood Beach, which is a short walk down the road. The beach has a great vibe and is the best in the area in our opinion. The villa feels very secluded, even though is just a 5 minute drive to Jolly Harbour, where you can find amazing places to eat, the beautiful Jolly Beach and the supermarket (The Epicurean). The villa kitchen is well stocked with all the equipment and cooking utensils you could need. The living space is very generous and we enjoyed family dinners and games in the open plan living space. We all had a large comfortable bed to come back to after long days in the sun and the incredible pool area was perfect place for sipping our homemade rum punches and taking a refreshing dip. I would highly recommend staying at this well located and fabulous villa.
