“Idyllic cliffside villa with stunning views and solitude.”

Just as you see in the pictures online. No cropping of eyesores or other distractions. Our favorite activity after dinner was to line up the lounge chairs on the deck, turn off the house lights and check out the stars. Spacious in every regard, but still cozy thanks to the architect's efforts. The large cooks kitchen opening to the outdoor dining area was a great feature. We much preferred cooking at home to driving across the island at night after a late dinner. Claire was very responsive to our house questions and need of local information.

“Absolutely Perfect -”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

This property is absolutely stunning and was ideal for us travelling as 2 couples. The villa is tranquil and relaxing and you never tire of the view which you can see wherever you are, in and outside of the villa. The villa allows 2 couples plenty of privacy as it is so spacious and has absolutely everything you might need. Our holiday was perfect. Day times spent relaxing by the pool or out exploring the beautiful beaches of Antigua and evenings in eating and chatting with friends. Also, due to the elevated position of the villa there was always a gentle breeze which meant the villa was kept lovely and cool and there were no mosquitos, perfect for being able to relax in the evenings - al fresco dining and lying on the sun beds watching for shooting stars.

The photos can't convey just how beautiful the property is, I have recommended to everyone that would listen! ;-)

“Great vacation rental, ideal for those looking for a quiet holiday.”

We stayed at Turtleview for a week and enjoyed it immensely. The house is lovely, with an open floor plan, great sliding glass doors that let in the breeze and allow for the most amazing view while you relax on the sofa or play games at the inside table. There is also an outdoor eating area next to the pool, a fully equipped kitchen that will make you want to eat-in, and a pool/deck area that begs you to relax as long as the sun is up.

If you're looking for lots of nightlife and partying, unless you BYOB, this is not the area to stay in. But if you are on holiday to relax and unwind, the privacy of this home is worth it. If you are looking for some nightlife, once you get used to driving on the roads, English Harbor is a doable distance for dinner and drinks. Stingray City is only 10 minutes from the house and was lots of fun. Long Bay was the best beach we found for snorkeling (about 15 minutes) and Half Moon Bay was the prettiest beach I've ever seen (~20 mins from house). We were very pleased with the location of the house, but we rented a car and could get around the island with ease. Anyone not renting a car would probably want to stay closer to a "bigger" city (none are huge in Antigua). If you are looking for something fun to do, we went on the Antigua Adventures Eco tour and loved it. Its not party oriented and was great for a family outing.

Other things: The house provides plenty of towels, which is great because who wants to pack a suitcase full of towels? The road to the house is like all other roads in Antigua, it has some ruts, but we had a Toyota Corolla and did just fine. Devil's Arch is nearby and definitely worth an outing.

If you really want to feel "at home" away from home, Turtleview is a great choice.
