Make a Holiday Rental Villa on Montserrat Island Your Home Away From Home

Montserrat is a beautiful island located in the Caribbean Sea, which has seen its fair share of troubled times. The island is probably most famous for the eruption of the Soufriere Hill Volcano in 1995. Since then Montserrat has managed to build its tourism back up with plenty of stunning beaches, outdoor activities and the draw of viewing an active volcano from a very safe distance. Renting a Montserrat holiday villa on the island guarantees an adventurous and interesting trip.

Things to Do on Holiday to Montserrat Island

Montserrat has several stunning beaches, which are unique to the island. Made up of soft volcanic sand, visitors can enjoy sunbathing, swimming, diving, deep sea fishing or snorkelling at most of the beaches. The island is also perfect for those who love hiking, walking or a mountain-biking challenge. With plenty of trails, paths and mountainous areas in the north of the island, visitors can leave their rental villa and head off for some arduous climbs and some stunning views. For those who love nature, bird-watching is a popular activity on Montserrat and the lush green vegetation and panoramic hill views are a wonderful subject for any photograph or painting. Other activities available on the island include horse riding, tennis, yachting and turtle-watching.

Places to Visit on Holiday to Montserrat Island

One of the main draws of the island is being able to see the devastation left behind after the Soufriere Hill Volcano erupted. The old capital of Plymouth has been described as a “Modern day Pompeii” and is worth a look. Although there is an exclusion zone around the town for safety reasons, visitors can be seen from vantage points nearby such as Jack Boy Hill and the Montserrat Volcano Observatory. The observatory is one of the best places to learn more about volcanoes in general as well about what exactly happened on the island in 1995.

Also worth a visit is Carr’s Bay Historical Site which is located at the north end of the island. Here visitors will be able to see remains of an old fort with some old cannons pointing in the general direction of Redonda. There is also the opportunity to see replicas of the war memorial and clock tower that were destroyed in Plymouth.

Weather in Montserrat Island

The island of Montserrat is blessed with a tropical climate all year round and so it is the perfect location for a holiday rental villa. In the summer months visitors can expect an average daytime temperature of 31°C, perfect for outdoor activities. In the winter months the temperature does not generally drop below 22°C, still allowing visitors to relish some warmth in the sun! Travellers should be aware that there may be the odd hurricane on Montserrat, which usually occur during the summer months.

Travel to Montserrat Island

Due to its location, there are no direct flights from the UK to the island of Montserrat. Airlines that offer affordable flights to the island generally have connecting flights from nearby Antigua or St. Martin. There are a few operators offering flights to start your Montserrat holiday including LIAT, US Airways, British Airways and Windward Islands Airways. Travellers can depart from a select number of UK airports such as London Gatwick (LGW), Manchester (MAN) and Glasgow (GLA). Flights arrive at the only airport on the island, John A. Osborne Airport (MNI).

                                                The villa was all that it says in the description and more. I would not hesitate to return or to recommend to friends. Tom was so helpful prior to our arrival. Answered all questions and went out of his way to help with ferry time tables etc. Tom's representative in Montserrat - Yvette - was just wonderful. She picked us up, helped us getting our local license, help us settle in, was a fountain of knowledge. She kindly helped us book local tours, was there when our ferry was delayed. She really was the most helpful attentive representative. It was with a twinge of sadness we left and the only regret was that we did not book to stay longer. Thank you Tom for sharing your villa and all your help. Yvette - you really were wonderful

                                                Great Long Term Stay

                                                4 of 5
                                                My wife and I occupied Lime Tree House as long term tenants, whilst I was working in Montserrat, between April 2016 and March 2017. Our occupation will explain the absence of recent holiday letting reviews for the property. The villa is superbly sited, with a large pool, lovely gardens and a compact, well maintained interior. It would make a great base for couples or families wanting to holiday in Montserrat and I would highly recommend the property. A vehicle is pretty well essentail, but that is true wherever one stays on the island. Hank's beach bar, Olveston House restaraunt, Ram's supermarket (main supermarket on island) and the Belham valley are all close by. The property affords great ocean views (Isles bay beach is a 5 minute drive away) as well as spectacular views of the volcano. The photographs and description of the property are all accurate. There are two bedrooms, the second bedroom containing twin beds, so the property is best suited to singles, couples or families with up to 2 children. Bob Kelly
