“Tranquil escape”
Reviewed 28 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

The property is perfectly located for exploring the island by car. John and Sarah were very friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. We stayed here for a week before heading to Sandals for the second week. By day 4 of our Sandals week I would happily have traded our plush suite for the tranquillity that the cottage offered us. We both love to travel and explore, and this was the ideal base. The gardens surrounding the cottage are beautiful and we were often woken by the sound of the birds chirping in the morning. The bed is big and comfortable. The pool area is in need of a little tlc (broken tiles) but the cottage, pool & gardens are immaculately kept and very clean. There is a great BBQ and the kitchen is equipped with everything you might need, and more! They have 5 dogs, 3 of which loved to hang out by the cottage. They were great company, but it you’re afraid of dogs this place isn’t for you. We loved them and welcomed them onto our veranda in the evening. They were very friendly. Great value for money and we would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a few days of peace and quiet together. A lovely home away from home.

“John and Sarah are fantastic hosts. Two people with big hearts.”
Reviewed 21 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

What a great way to start our Caribbean holiday.
Such a lovely gem tucked in the countryside.
Great location. Beaches not even two min away.
Shops are close as well for all amenities.
The whole time we felt so relaxed and loved the layout of the place.
Having a pool is a great way to freshen up.
Great BBQ as well for some fresh Antigua fish.
Sarah and John and their friends and family are all such good people.
We felt so welcomed to their home and this amazing Country.

Both of them have inspired us to live here.
That's how good we felt.

The only thing wrong was that we didn't book for longer.
We did not realize what a beautiful place Antigua is.

Thanks John and Sarah for helping us out.
