We stayed here for two weeks and was very happy with our choice.
We have been to Antigua twice before, so we did know the area.
We were greeted by the lovely Jenny, who showed us around the apartment and gave us many tips on things to see and places to eat.
The apartment was very spacious for the two of us.
We loved the verandah especially in the morning, enjoyed having a breakfast with the birds.
Plenty of towels and linen and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, although we didn't do any cooking, just breakfast and made picnics.
We found it very peaceful here and and an ideal location for the many beaches.
Although i would say personally a car is recommended for ease to visit all these beaches and further field.
As others have said Jolly Harbour is close by, with it's supermarket and restaurants, and beach, probably about 10 min walk and about 15 min walk to beach.
Only one negative comment, a good mirror near a plug would be really helpful for drying your hair. Apart from that it was perfect.
We loved it so much we are back again next year.
Thank you, Adrian, Angela and Jenny.
Good location within walking distance of beach, shopping and restaurants. Handy for buses.
Lovely pool and gardens.
Airy apartment with spectacular views.
Very well equipped. Good for eating in on lovely balcony.
Airconditioning and ceiling fans throughout.
My wife and I booked this apartment for 7 days and from the meet and greet on day one to the goodbye handover, we have nothing but positive feedback.
The apartment was exactly as described. A spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with an open plan living / dining / kitchen, and extensive veranda to enjoy those magnificent Antigua sunsets from. The pool although small is perfect for a cooling dip on a day when you wish to give the hustle and bustle of Jolly Harbour, or the beach a miss. We only used it on the final day of our trip as the location of this apartment allows you explore all of the island with relative ease. However, a car is highly recommended if you wish to travel further afield than Darkwood Beach or Jolly Harbour. Although taxis are plentiful, but regular day trips to St John's, English Harbour, the Rain Forest, Stingray City, (BTW our favourite excursion, an absolute must) etc. can become a rather expensive habit.
The apartment is well equipped with everything you could possibly need (even down to a cool bag and recyclable shopping bags. Plus a local mobile phone which is a real boon. There was nothing we could not find or did not have in the apartment.
The air conditioning and ceiling fans are more than sufficient to cool the apartment on hot nights & the BBQ on the veranda means you can enjoy a totally alfresco evening if you choose. Well maintained gardens surround the property as it is at the foothills of of a forested area, you have the joys of a sea view one way and a green treed view the other way.
A great find for us and one we are completely happy with.
We stayed in Apartment 2 of Hamilton House with our two teenage sons. It was just as it looked on the website, although the bathrooms could do with some updating. We liked the verandah, a great spot for watching wildlife (birds and lizards!). The apartment was well equipped, and we were impressed with the number of beach towels provided. The air con and ceiling fans worked well, and the beds were comfortable. The location was quiet: Jolly Harbour (supermarket & restaurants) is a ten minute walk along the road in one direction, and Valley Church Beach is ten minutes along the road in the other direction. The road is quite busy, and with no footpaths, it is essential to walk in single file. The beach is excellent, especially when there are no cruise ships in St Johns, and we loved The Nest Beach Bar, particularly the Coconut Prawns! There are lots of good restaurants nearby, especially Miracles on the road to Jolly Harbour, and Oceanos near Valley Church Beach.
Airport transfers were included the price, very convenient.
