Villa Red Sun did not disappoint! My sister and her husband booked this villa for me as a surprise for my 40th birthday... it was the most memorable vacation ever!! All the family gathered in Antigua and Villa Red Sun was the perfect villa for us all to stay in and be together under one roof in Paradise! It was large enough that we all had our own private space at the same time. The location was amazing and the views from the villa are just gorgeous. We walked down to the beach every morning which is so perfect for swimming. The children loved it and we hardly used the swimming pool at the villa because the beach was so near! Our housekeeper was so brilliant as was Katia, nothing was an issue for them. I would really like to return.. maybe for my 50th!!

And the most famous of these is probably Half Moon Bay which has beautiful pink hued sands and stunning turquoise sea. The scenery is beautiful the views from Shirley Heights to the islands of Montserrat and Guadeloupe will literally take your breath away.
The island has a wonderful laid back atmosphere although there are plenty of glamorous restaurants, boutiques and casinos.
