Why Judy Forward chose Saint John

After visiting Antigua for a number of years we discovered the unique residential development of Halcyon Heights. A perfect holiday environment for all age groups offering relaxation, swiming, close to restuarants and beach activites

What makes this villa unique

Fabulous views from the villa and gardens and a relaxing place to stay

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've been back for a week now after 4 weeks at your villa, and I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you so much for letting us stay in your fabulous home in Antigua. It was just what we needed and we had a wonderful and much needed rest, made all the more pleasant by having such a fab base at Hummingbird Villa.

What a perfect location!

We had a hire car for the duration, so were off out on our adventures every day. It was so lovely to have a nice cosy and comfortable place to come "home" to at the end of the day.

We loved it!

We cherished the peace and quiet.......and had absolutely no problem with mosquito's, We had lots of rain whilst we were there too (much needed on the island)We had absolutely no problems at all.

We are thinking of spending some time in 2015 on the Island and would like to stay at your home again

Another wonderful stay at Hummingbirds Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Hummingbirds Villa. It is truly a slice of heaven! The property is immaculately kept; the gardens, the pool, the pooldeck overlooking the sea 😍

Judy’s place is very comfortable. The electric fans throughout the place made for comfortable nights as did the very comfortable bed! The kitchen was well equipped which made it a pleasure to eat in. Our most favorite part of the condo?...The patio/balcony which is where we basically lived the whole week. This will always be our place in Antigua! Thankyou Judy

A view of Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely loved staying here! The view over Dickenson Bay is stunning and the location of the villa is good for easy access to St John's, Dickenson Bay beaches, and some wonderful restaurants (Pari's, The Bay House and Coconut Grove to name a few). The villa itself is spacious and has everything you could need (with the exception of Air Con, although fans are in abundance). The booking process was simple, with quick responses to questions, and arrangements for arrival very straightforward. Information on the villa itself and what attractions are on the island were all readily available at the villa. The site itself is beautifully landscaped and everyone we met was friendly and helpful. We would definitely return and hope to do so in the near future.

Beautiful villa. The photos and description are accurate and Judy was very responsive to questions. The villa was clean and very spacious. We loved the breeze at night and coming outside on the balcony to the ocean view every morning!
