Situated on a sunset facing bluff between two of Antigua’s most beautiful beached, this newly built property is located in the exclusive Tamarind Hills community.

The beautiful Darkwood beach is just a short walk away. Conveniently located, Tamarind Villa is just a minute’s drive away from all the amenities of Jolly Harbour, which offers a variety of restaurants and bars as well as large supermarket, pharmacy and banks.

Antigua is a relatively flat island which is approximately 20 miles long and 10 miles wide. It is located in the northeast of the Caribbean just south of St Barths, St Martin, and Anguilla.

Antigua is best known for having some of the most beautiful white sandy beaches in the Caribbean. 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.

It is also one of the best known yachting and sailing islands culminating in the very popular Antigua Sailing week which takes place in late April to early May each year. It has an incredible atmosphere and the island literally comes alive.

Another time to see Antigua in full swing is during the Antigua carnival which takes place at the end of July and start of August each year and where you will see plenty of authentic calypso and reggae music, steel bands and dancing.

For the adventurous, a trip through the lush rainforests and mango groves of Fig Tree Drive is worth doing.

Antigua is also well known for being one of the most historical of the Caribbean Island. The 18th century Great Fort George is a very important part of Antigua’s history from its days as a British Colony as well as Nelson’s Dockyard which is a wonderfully restored British naval base.

There are 365 beaches in Antigua – one for every day of the year and many of them among the best beaches in the Caribbean. Each beach in Antigua features different types of wave action, wind, sand and vegetation depending on its location. On the west coast, the beaches are exceptionally calm and many of them are protected by their own reef. On the other hand, the Atlantic side has a much rougher surf and sand. All beaches in Antigua are open to the public.

Frryes Beach is located on the west side of Antigua just over a mile south west of Jolly Harbour. It is one of the quieter beaches on the island and offers clear calm waters. As there is no reef or rocks here, it is a wonderful spot for swimming. Frryes Beach is the perfect spot if you want to escape from the busier beaches or parts of Antigua. It is not too far off Valley Road between Coco Beach and Darkwood Beach.

The bustling and historic port city of St John is the both the capital and commercial hub of Antigua. In the very center is the cruise ship dock at Heritage Quay which is lined with upscale duty-free shops and restaurants. Nearby to Heritage you will find the Vendors Market which is where you can purchase local souvenirs. The third shopping area is at Redcliffe Quay which is a quainter shopping and dining area.

LOVED Tamarind Villa #8.

  • 5 of 5

Hi Aine,

Thanks for your email. Krista and I LOVED Tamarind Villa #8. The views were absolutely amazing and we loved the close access to Darkwood Beach.

Special thanks to you & Noreen for making our anniversary vacation so special. We also really enjoyed Sheer Rocks.

Thanks for offering to share a surprise gift…that’s very nice of you.

Best vacation of our lives!

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly say this was the best vacation of my life ( so far). This trip was to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and everything about it was perfect! Tamarind Hills absolutely has to be the most beautiful spot on the island. Incredible does not even fully describe Tamarind Villa 8-beautiful furnishings and décor, well maintained, clean, and THE VIEW!!!! The only downside (if you want to call it that) was that it was so nice that we didn't want to ever leave the villa or the pool so we didn't see much of the island. The construction did not bother us one bit, they were very quiet and we barely knew they were there. Can't wait to see what the resort looks like upon completion! Darkwood Beach and Ffryes Beach are both gorgeous and easily accessible from the villa.

The outings that Noreen helped arrange were also amazing!! The Catch the Cat catamaran trip was one of our favorite parts of the trip, what a great recommendation. Sheer Rocks was definitely the best dinner we had on the island too, amongst some of the other wonderful restaurants we visited. The service we received from Exceptional Villas was beyond exceptional-they took care of everything for us! We didn't want to come home--actually, if it wasn't for our kids being at home waiting for us we may just have never come back! Now all of our friends are asking for information on where we stayed as they are looking at all of our pictures in envy.

I could have never planned a trip like this without the assistance of Aine and Noreen at Exceptional Villas. They were both so easy to deal with and extremely responsive. I'm already looking into booking another trip and we just returned 6 days ago!

I can honestly say this was the best vacation of my life

  • 5 of 5

Hello!

I've been wanting to e-mail you and Noreen since we returned---actually since we got there----to tell you how wonderful it was!!! I can honestly say this was the best vacation of my life. Everything about it was perfect! Tamarind Hills absolutely has to be the most beautiful spot on the island. Incredible does not even fully describe Tamarind Villa 8-beautiful furnishings and décor, well maintained, clean, and THE VIEW!!!! The only downside (if you want to call it that) was that it was so nice that we didn't want to ever leave the villa or the pool so we didn't see much of the island. The construction did not bother us one bit, they were very quiet and we barely knew they were there. Can't wait to see what the resort looks like upon completion! The house next door did get a bit noisy when neighbors arrived about halfway through our stay, but it was just for a few nights so it was ok. I believe we got spoiled for a few days because there was nobody else around and it was like having a private resort.

The outings that Noreen helped arrange were also amazing!! The catamaran trip was one of our favorite parts of the trip, and my husband loved it so much (since it was part of his birthday surprise). Sheer Rocks was definitely the best dinner we had on the island too, amongst some of the other wonderful restaurants we visited. We didn't want to come home--actually, if it wasn't for our kids being at home waiting for us we may just have never come back! It was a rude awakening when we flew back in to New York and it was 26 degrees.....back to reality!

Anyway, I wanted to thank both of you for everything, as I could have never planned a trip like this without all of your assistance! You were also both so easy to deal with, I'm already looking forward to booking another trip! :)

Thank you again!

Rebecca McCurdy

Wonderful Trip - Amazing Villa and Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful villa and I would be so happy to recommend it and Exceptional Villas to anyone, already my friends want to go back. The villa is AMAZING. I was nervous that it looked so wonderful in the photographs but it was the exact same in reality even better. I had to pinch myself every morning when I woke up to the fantastic view! Darkwood Beach is so perfect and great for swimming, the water was so warm and clear. It was easily accessed from our villa and the girls and I walked down most mornings for a swim before breakfast. We relaxed at the villa most days as it was so luxurious and comfortable but we went to St Johns shopping one day and also enjoyed a really wonderful day out on Catch the Cat Catamaran which Noreen at Exceptional Villas arranged for us. We also visited Jolly Harbour Beach and did some Jet Skiing which was so fun. An overall wonderful trip

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We (6 middle aged women) had a fabulous time at Tamarind Villa (we stayed at the villa with 4 bedrooms). The villa was well kept, clean and had the most magnificent views. It should be mentioned that the 4th bedroom/ping pong table room are separated by an exterior flight of stairs from the main area of the villa kitchen, dining area along with the other 3 bedrooms. We had a wonderful experience reserving the villa and with the onsite property manager. The property does not offer any additional amenities other than the villa/pool and that you are a few mins from the beach. We mainly hung out at our private pool or walked to Jolly Harbor, where we rented a catamaran for 4 hours. There are also a bunch of restaurants there and a fairly big grocery store according to the island standards. I don't recommend driving unless you are used to driving on the left side of the road (British system). The roads are not safe (narrow, windy with poor signage) so it's worth hiring a driver during your stay. We would call our taxi driver that we met at the airport 30 mins prior to our outings and was always at our disposal. Sweet Leon. The cleaning crew came every other day which kept our place clean and tidy but they should do some deep cleaning every 2-3 weeks. I dream of the day I can go back and stay at the same villa. Beautiful stay, amazing place, people and scenery. I love this place and cannot wait to go back! It truly is Heaven on Earth. Thank you for the amazing experience -- Mona

Luxurious villa hovering over the sea

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this beautiful villa. The house looks great in pictures but it exceeded our expectations upon arrival. The layout was perfect for our party and I thought the extra touches in terms of furniture and fixtures made the villa very luxurious.

You simply cannot beat the view and the sunsets. We spent many hours outside overlooking the pool and the blue ocean water. One of my highlights was, while enjoying a cocktail in the infinity edge pool, watching two spotted eagle rays swim within 10 feet of the shoreline directly below me before turning back out to sea. Once in a lifetime.

We certainly would look forward to having the road completed down to Freyes beach but completely understand that the construction is under way and we received a discount for that. It was just a short 2 minute drive around the hill.

The lower level games room was well used by our teenagers. Particularly the nightly Foosball games created a lot of laughs.

It had been about 8 years since we were in Antigua and we enjoyed the island. We had some great meals at restaurants very close to the villa - Sheer Rocks, Jacqui O's and Dennis' were all within walking distance and serving cuisine far superior to your average Caribbean restaurant.

The service we experienced from Exceptional Villas was just great. We will definitely be back in Antigua and staying at Tamarind Hills!
