Great home on a great island

  • 5 of 5

If I were to design the perfect house layout for a home on the sea, this would be it. A huge amount of outdoor space under roof. Both the dining area and the living room/family room are outside, under roof overlooking the pool and the water. The home is spotless and very well maintained. In addition, the locals are some of the friendliest people I have met in any country. If you are looking for a place you can go and get away from it all, this is it.

Phenomenal

  • 5 of 5

The photographs do not do it justice. This is a phenomenal villa. The airy bedrooms, the outside living space, the proximity to beaches and restaurants, the tranquility, the view....what a view!!!

All this and more made for an absolutely stellar two weeks. Many thanks to the very informative and attentive owner for allowing us the pleasure of enjoying Avalon.

Private oceanfront and Iguana wait-staff

  • 5 of 5

Lacking anything else, we chose Avalon based on the photos, and were not disappointed. With a garden & patio literally perched on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean, Avalon might have the best location on Montserrat. There's a 270 degree view from Soufriere to Redonda, with sunset dead center. There's a sizable tribe of Iguanas in the garden (don't fret, they're vegetarian and much appreciate a donation of lettuce) and although you may mock, it's possible to spend many fascinated hours Iguana-watching. We have a large memory card of Iguana photos.

The house has one of the best outdoor living spaces we have seen in travels to 30+ countries, perhaps 2500 sq ft/250 sq mt. Partly roofed, partly not, with great, comfy "slob-out" furniture. There are abundant ceiling fans, although we hardly needed them -- Avalon is situated perfectly to catch the trade winds, which blow most of the time, and we never felt uncomfortably warm. Plan on living outside; you'd be crazy not to.

Inside, the house is nicely appointed. The bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and are decently sized, light & bright with screened and shuttered windows, ceiling fans and 2 of the 3 bedrooms have amazing views. What you see in the online photos is fairly close to what you see lying in bed.

The kitchen is reasonably sized and well equipped. Montserrat is not a hub of tourist activity, which alone makes it worth visiting. But it also means that dining options are limited and therefore we cooked-in a lot, for which the kitchen was perfectly adequate. Conveniently, Avalon is located maybe a mile from what's probably the best supermarket on the island, Rams. Anyone who's spent time on small islands will be pleasantly surprised by some of the products that they carry, and equally unsurprised by the products that they don't.

The owner is truly delightful and attentive. She's available day & night and did everything possible to make our stay exceptional, including a tour of the island and introductions to local residents, who made the trip quite special. We felt more connected to the island than almost anywhere else that we've been.

We stayed for 12 days and I can't think of a single problem other than drinking too many umbrella drinks while gazing at the view. We'll be returning, and if the owner ever felt insanely charitable, we'd buy the place. If Avalon doesn't make you go "Wow!" then you have no pulse and it's quite possible that your soul has been surgically removed.

Avalon: Montserrat's Perfect Home From Home

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of six, including two grown up children and their partners, hence looking for a home from home to suit a variety of holiday expectations. This was our first visit to Montserrat though we have visited numerous islands in the Caribbean, and we specifically chose to visit this idyllic island over the St. Patrick’s holiday period.

On arrival late in the evening after a long a tiring journey from the UK, Dyann was there to greet us and was so warm and welcoming. We were wowed by the interior of the villa as she showed us around. The décor looked even better than the pictures on the website; in addition, Dyann had ensured the fridge, freezer and larder were well stocked with even more goods than we had requested, which was so thoughtful. But we were not able to appreciate the spectacular views until first light. What a view! The word stunning doesn’t even seem adequate; it just took our breath away as it will yours! On waking each morning in the master bedroom, you see the view without even leaving your bed. A must is seeing the sunrise and sunset from the viewing platform, totally unforgettable.

The open plan layout of the villa, ceiling fans and the cross winds through the house kept the inside at an ambient temperature. Our fears about the lack of air conditioning were unfounded.

Avalon is in Old Towne a quiet peaceful part of the Island. The Beach Bar, a short drive from the villa is just a fun place to relax, enjoy a beer and some good food. Olverston House, with its rich history, nice cuisine and a warm welcome is also nearby.

Dyann’s team were friendly, helpful and always willing to have a chat telling you more about the island and its history. Dyann was always contactable by phone or email for advice, help and useful ideas or suggestions.

Not if, but when we return to the island Avalon will be our first choice for a place to stay and we could not recommend it highly enough.

Avalon: Montserrat's Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to numerous islands and villas in the Caribbean. We decided that for our 20th anniversary we wanted to go to place that was less traveled and had a flare of uniqueness. After much research we chose Montserrat.

Once we decided on our destination, it was time time to find our home away from home. We looked at many pictures and read many reviews, and decided on Avalon. Take a look at the featured picture on the listing and that was the hook for us...and I have to tell you waking up to that view each morning during our vacation was in itself worth the price of the rental. In fact, though we had a rental car , and numerous invites from locals to venture out and do daily activities, we found it difficult to leave the Villa....the pool, the view, the breeze...it was so hard to leave our little piece of the island.

If you want a great place to hang out and have a few (or more) adult beverages I recommend The Beach Bar...its a short drive from the villa and is just a fun place kick back and enjoy...enjoyed the food too! Also check out Uncles...loved it.

The Villa had everything my wife and I needed. I must say I was a bit nervous about not having AC, but the trade winds and ceiling fans were enough to make sleeping very comfortable....I really don't know what to add other than we were completely satisfied with the accommodations and felt very much at home. Much of that was not only due to the villa itself, but Dyann's attentiveness to our needs and her overall hospitality.

This was our first trip to Montserrat and Villa Avalon, but it will not be our last. We plan on returning and will bring friends and family, so they too can experience the simple pleasures of this special destination.

Gorgeous oceanfront villa, with to-die-for views

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest villas on the island, literally. Dyann made sure our stay would be wonderful and everything was prepared for us. The views of the volcano and the ocean, beach, and cliffs below are gorgeous. The area is lovely, with many other beautiful villas, and still very private and peaceful. The villa itself is furnished very tastefully, and the layout is perfect. My husband and I enjoyed our stay here so much- we have been to different areas of the Caribbean, and by far this villa and this island are the loveliest we've been to. The villa is located very near the Olveston House, which is a must for lunch and dinner. The beach below is fantastic and the sunsets here are gorgeous. The groundskeepers and housekeepers were wonderful and always kind. I would definitely recommend a rental car- Gage's car rental was wonderful. After seeing the island, this area is the best area to stay in, and Villa Avalon is perfect in every way. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience- and since we drank from Runaway Ghaut- I'm quite sure we'll be back!
