Make a holiday rental beach house or villa in Antigua and Barbuda your home away from home

Antigua and Barbuda are incredible island destinations in the Caribbean with stunning year round climate, 365 white powder beaches and stunning natural landscape. The sun blessed islands are perfect for getting away at any time of year as a couple, with friends or for a family holiday.

Things to do in Antigua and Barbuda

There is a huge amount to do in Antigua and Barbuda, and you will certainly not be bored in an Antiguan villa. The warm, steady winds which grace Antigua and Barbuda make it the perfect place for sailing, kite surfing and windsurfing, which is why Antigua Sailing Week at the beginning of May has gained such global acclaim. The Antigua Sailing week is considered to be one of the top three regattas in the world, and accommodation in Antigua does become fiercely sought after during the week, so book your villa in Antigua early!

The warm waters of the Caribbean are of course the focal point for many of the activities you can indulge in from Antigua accommodation. The unbroken coral reef which surrounds Antigua is the perfect place for snorkelling and diving, wit tropical marvels around every corner. Swimming with dolphins and rays off the coast is a magical experience, and you return to you Antigua villa filled with a genuine sense of awe and humility. Windsurfing and kayaking are not only sports here, they also provide a way of investigating what animals live around you and discover beautiful parts of the islands for yourself.

The warm tropical waters of Antigua are filled with huge game fish too. Deep sea fishing expeditions are both excellent fun and excellent value. The Barbuda Annual Sport Fishing Tournament is held every May.

On land, hiking, hunting and golf thrive. Hiking is not an organised activity, but there are many trails, especially the routes between the old hilltop forts. The two golf courses which are accessible from an Antigua villa are both set in stunning scenery and open to the public, offering 18 holes each. Licenses and permits for deer, boar and gamefowl can be obtained from Codrington Village.

Laid back week in the sun

4 of 5
The owners arranged for a taxi to collect us from the airport and met us at the villa to show us around. They had provided essentials for us - milk, bread, fruit juice, margarine, tea, coffee, wine & biscuits which were lovely to have available after the journey. There were helpful labels and bits of information around the villa explaining which switch did what and some of the power outlets were British standard. The villa was equipped with everything we needed and all worked well. The sun shone on the rear patio from morning until around 1 p.m. The beautiful beach was a 2 minute stroll away and had a vibrant bar (Castaways) with a happy hour from 16:30 - 18:30. The main reception area with a variety of restaurants and bars and a well stocked supermarket was a 10 minute leisurely stroll away. For those of limited mobility there are golf carts for hire on site. If you like some island experience, there are local small buses which take you into St Johns for EC$3.25 each way (£0.95) in 15-20 minutes. The owners were staying next door for the first half of our stay and remained very approachable, helpful, friendly and concerned that we were having a good time. I would certainly stay here again when I next visit Antigua.

Special birthday at an amazing villa

5 of 5
I have justed celebrated my 60th birthday staying at this amazing villa which certainly lives up to it's name. On arrival at the airport the owners had very kindly arranged transport directly to the villa and booked car hire for us through Mary's taxi tours. The villa has an excellent location with a most incredible view. All amenities are close by with a good selection of restaurants to choose from. Each bedroom at villa amazing is individually decorated to an extremely high standard. Our only regret was the fact that our stay was not long enough. We will hooefully return back in the near future. Dave and Sally Oliver.
