We have just returned from our first trip to Antigua where we stayed at the Terra Cottage, a beautifully decorated, fantastically equipped cottage. The cottage is immaculate and so tastefully decorated with gorgeous little touches from the pineapple bedlights to the beautiful nautical linen. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a grill out on the terrace for grilling the freshly caught local fish for enjoying whilst sitting out on the terrace in the evening listening to the sounds of the islands singing tree frogs. One of our new favourite things to do!
The cottage is located within a short drive to the Epicaurean supermarket where you can buy everything you would ever need for your stay. There are also some great wine stores nearby and the fish and fruit markets in St John’s are a must do for fantastic local produce which you can buy to stock the big American style fridge freezer in the cottage.
The cottage is located in the north of the island at Hodges Bay which was a perfect location for us as we loved to travel around visiting one of the many beautiful beaches in the morning, stop for lunch at one of the great restaurants or funky beach bars then returning to the cottage for a swim in our own pool watching the sun go down before cooking in the open plan cottage kitchen.
Our hosts were so kind and welcoming from our initial booking to our seven night stay. If there was anything we needed to know before we arrived Laura was able to advise and any queries or requests we had were dealt with immediately by the amazing island hosts looking after the cottage guests.
We would definitely recommend having your own cottage, being able to travel around and dine out but also having your own space to relax and swim and cook is the best way if visiting the island to get a true sense of the place. And the Terra Cottage is the perfect place to do that.
Marie and Rob - stayed October 2018.
Our stay at the beach house from 30/04/18-10/05/18 was absolutely perfect. It was everything we hoped it would be and more. You really do feel like you are on your own desert island. We also got married at the beach house which was truly amazing. We couldn’t of hoped for a more perfect day and vacation.
Many thanks to Rhea for being so helpful and for meeting us at the airport and showing us the way to the beach house via the supermarket.
A truly amazing place and Rhea a truly lovely person.
We will definitely return for wedding anniversaries. X
