Amazing 7 days

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Stoney Hills for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquillity provided by Karol and Merv Stewart. The studio was excellent and very well equipped and tastefully furnished. The balcony and hammock proved to be the best feature with stuning views over darkwood beach. The sunsets - well words escape us. The road into the studio requires a four wheel drive but once you have navigated it once its just a pure delight thereafter. The supermarket at Jolly Harbour is excellent. If you want to chill and enjoy Antigua there is no better place. We have been to Antigua four times now and will definately return to Stoney Hills the next time.

Wonderful, as always.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Stoneyhill and yet again we had a lovely time. Karol and Merve work so hard to keep everything immaculate and are always available should you have a query.

We had a few days here after our sail in Guadeloupe and it was the best bit of my holiday.

Very much looking forward to a whole week in 2017.

Wonderful. Just loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed StoneyHill cottages in February 2016 and I can honestly say the place was FANTASTIC. We have been to Antigua many times, as we love the island and have stayed in many different accommodation and places. This was certainly at the top of the list. I totally agree with all the positive reviews that Stoneyhill Cottages receives. The cottages themselves are very well situated with a fantastic view from the very generous and well-furnished private balcony. We basically had the swimming pool to ourselves and enjoyed cooling off while looking over the fantastic view of Darkwood Valley and beach.

The cottages are set back a little way from the beach area, but everything is in walking distance. We enjoyed the walks to the beach and even to the supermarket. If you don’t enjoy walking there is a bus, which is extremely reasonable that can get you to the supermarket. Karol, the owner would let you know when she is going to the supermarket if you wanted anything picked up.

I would recommend hiring a car to see the island though as Antigua is a fantastic place to be. The locals are extremely friendly and helpful. All the beaches are wonderful with white sand and turquoise sea. There are also lots of wonderful places to visit around the island. Having said that you could easily stay here without a car without any hardship.

The host Karol and Merv are truly wonderful. They can’t do enough to make sure your stay is the best ever. At the same time you can have total privacy and not even see them if you prefer. They are such wonderful people and we enjoyed their company very much.

I highly recommend Stoneyhill cottages. The location is perfect and is so close to some fantastic beaches mainly Ffyer Beach, Darkwood Beach, Valley Church Beach to name a few.

When we stayed there we met quite a few repeater guest who continue to come back as they enjoyed their stay so much. This is obviously due to the great accommodation and location, but also to the wonderful host Karol and Merve.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and you bet will be back.

Best vacations. Repeat Visitor

  • 5 of 5

Simple put Merv and Karol are great hosts and their property is a perfect hillside setting. The view is to die for and the villas are immaculate. The wrap around porches take great advantage of the ocean view. The pool was just completely refurbished and is beautiful.

There are terrific restaurants, a grocery store and most anything one needs within 15 minutes of the property. My wife and I enjoy driving around the island and seeing the sights. The island is very safe and our interaction with the people has been nothing less than positive. Our only complaint is that more people seem to be discovering the island but it is by no means crowded. It is truly a paradise with weather always in the low 80s and a pleasent breeze on the beach. There are at least 10 beaches within an easy 15 minute drive from their property. OUTSTANDING vacation. We already booked a trip for 2017. Give It a try! Best value we have found. I like to keep my money as much as anyone, but we have encouraged them to raise their rates. Worth every penny....

Continues to be fab!

  • 5 of 5

It was our second visit to Stonyhill, we were so looking forward to it and were not disappointed. Karol is a great host, always available for queries but not intrusive. The property as before was immaculate and had everything we needed for our stay.

We revisited some old haunts, Dennis's bar on Ffryes continues to be a favourite but we also enjoyed Roxy's on Galleon Bay and Catherines at Pidgeon point ( a bit pricy, but worth it for special occasion)

All in all another fantastic holiday, thank you Karol.

The real luxury in Antigua

  • 5 of 5

If you plan to spend a holiday in Antigua and want to have the best you do not have to go to one of the many resorts in the island but choose StoneyHill apartments.

There are many reasons for choosing a home rather than an all inclusive hotel, but going to Stoney Hill apartments the reason is only one: Karol and Merve are simply fantastic !!!

There we discovered the true luxury of a holiday that feel as comfortable as at home but in the middle of a beautiful nature, living with the locals and not in the sterile coldness of a hotel.

Karol and Merve were able to be welcoming and helpful and did their best to accommodate your every request. They rented us their own at a very affordable price so we did not have the thought of having to use a car rental from Italy or just arrived in Antigua.

The studio we stayed in was very spacious and had everything you need, the bathroom was new and clean as the whole apartment.

But the must of the house was undoubtedly the large terrace where you can have breakfast and lunch and enjoy the scenery.

The three apartments have a communal area with swimming pool, bar and barbecue and the complex is built in a pleasant original colonial style of the area, one of the nicest if not the nicest on the island.

Every time we asked for information was a pleasure to hear from the owners telling us many facts and tips about Antigua that are not found in guidebooks. They have a network of knowledge in the area and will help you with any questions.

They offered a great lunch and Karol is really a great cook! (Karol thanks again for your special spaghetti). We spent several hours together listening to a lot of reggae music and enjoying the drinks we try to duplicate here at home.

Last but not least StoneyHill is very close to the best beaches of the islands (we recommend Coco Beach, Ffryes and Darkwood all of which a couple of minutes from StoneyHill)

For the first time we were very sad to go home, not only because the holiday was over, but effectively we found not just two friendly hosts but two special friends.
