Although our inbound flight was delayed we we're greeted, as arranged, at the airport by a friendly representative of the car hire company that Willoughby's owners had recommended to us. He then drove us to the Willoughby property. His service was most helpful and uncomplicated. Do ask the Michaels for his service. Willoughby is situated directly on the waterfront of a peaceful bay. The views are unspoilt and second to none. The garden has been lovingly kept and offers practical spaces for bbqing, hanging out the laundry, and relaxing in the sun or shade. The pool was lovely! Salt water, no chemicals! There are sun loungers too. There is a constant refreshing breeze which helps keep mosquitoes at bay. Although the temperatures are high we had no need of the AC which is installed in every bedroom. Willoughby is fully furbished and the kitchen is very well stocked. We had everything we needed for our family vacation. There were even some great toys for our toddler and a baby's cot. We felt immediately comfortable and at home. Many thanks Michael family for this wonderful home from home. We would certainly book again. Yours, S, L, F

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.
