About The Owner

The owners have been coming to Antigua for several years, before purchasing land at Verandah Estates and building Brightside Villa. As a family we love the island with its fantastic warm climate, the lovely beaches and the friendly people. We hope you will also enjoy your stay at our villa, in Antigua. We support the environmental friendly policies of Antigua and in particular the local eco-friendly protected national park around Devil's Bridge. The villa has been designed with the environment in mind, utilizing rain water collected in the water cistern as its primary source of water. In addition, solar panels utilize the high levels of Antiguan sunshine to provide energy to the villa.

House was perfect from all angles. Roomy with high ceilings, space aplenty and en-suite bedrooms. The pool and garden was good size and well maintained by friendly staff team. Walking distance to lovely beach and Veranda hotel. Only minor challenge was self-catering supplies as the supermarkets are on either side of the island and village stores were all canned supplies. So the rental car helped. We enjoyed the use of the pools, table tennis and crazy golf at the hotel too. Veranda could not have been more helpful when our daughter suffered some nausea and summoned the local doctor for house calls. Another benefit was the detailed and fun users manual (about the house and island's tourist activities) that the owners have compiled from personal experience. We had a fabulous week.

Beautiful Villa in a quiet and relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

This villa was fantastic and was perfect for me to relax and rejuvenate in the sun. It was well kept, spacious and has amazing views of the sunset in the evening and the sea from the large balcony upstairs. The outside area with the superb sized pool (which was cleaned regular) was great to cool down in after the warm heat of the Caribbean sun and the property has many outside tables and chairs so you are spoilt for choice on where to eat your meals, read or soak up the sun etc. Lastly, the deal with the Veranda Hotel is an added bonus as you have access to all their facilities including a gym, crazy mini-golf and water activities. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who asks as it will not disappoint you in anyway.

Fantastic Villa in Antigua

  • 5 of 5

This really is the most amazing villa. We spent 10 days there with children aged 14 & 12. We all LOVED it. Absolutely incredible views, beautifully furnished. Has to be one of the best villas in the area. Stunning master bedroom, so much space throughout, even the wardrobes are enormous! The pool was fantastic with really lovely sparkling clean water and kept regularly cleaned. Everything you need is provided. The reciprocal agreement with the Veranda Hotel was an incredible bonus for us and meant the children were able to windsurf, sail and kayak everyday. The villa even has a proper basketball hoop which my 12 year old absolutely loved. Highly recommended.

La Jolla -- California

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely - true to the pictures. The master bedroom suite is spacious. The pool was always cool and refreshing. The house is in a slightly remote part of the island but very close to the resort - so it's a nice option if you don't want to stay in busy resort but still have access to all the amenities - which were GREAT for us and for the kids on our trip with us. The house is well stocked for cooking meals at home as far as utensils and pots/pans etc. The only thing that we REALLY frustrating with the house was the internet. It NEVER worked during the day and only sporadically but really slowly during the evenings -- so don't try to work while on vacation! The food at the resort was pretty awful and overpriced but the little Italian place down the street was good - it closes very early but they were nice enough to do a quick takeout for us. The beaches were lovely...but not the best snorkeling I've ever seen.

Antigua 2013

  • 5 of 5

I had one of the best weeks of my life at this property. I was sharing it with a lovely group of people, and I will forever feel privileged to have spent some time here. Antigua is somewhere that you always dream of going and I was really nervous that it wouldn't live up to my expectations, I'd never been anywhere like it before. Fortunately my expectations were exceeded in more ways than I could have imagined and I wouldn't have changed a thing.

The Most Incredible Week With Some Great People

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just beautiful. We drove past hundreds of other houses across Antigua and not one came close to this one; it was amazing. The short walk to the beach was ideal for those who wanted some time in the sea and sand, whilst the Verandah hotel was only across the road. We felt very safe and secure and the pool area was extremely popular and once again absolutely beautiful. Put this together with 10 of your best friends and the week flies by, so by the end none of was wanted to leave and I would love to go back there again if I got the chance.

Thank you so much!!!
