From our very first email correspondence our hosts Peter and Natalie were so helpful, informative, friendly and FUN!!! After having cancelled a previous reservation elsewhere on the island we were thrilled that we booked at Galley Bay Cottages. We had flight delay issues that left us arriving a day and a half later and in the dark (11pm).....once we landed...

Antigua is a beautiful and peaceful place and to me Galley Bay Cottages is the only lodging facility that blends perfectly with the island's graciously laid-back spirit. The cottages are grouped along a quiet road, cleverly spaced along a gorgeous main path that provides extra charm and privacy to the place. Walk five minutes down the hill and you'll stand...

Our first experience at Galley Bay Cottages was so pleasant we have returned for 12 years. The cottages are nestled into a hillside overlooking a beautiful beach with a private little cove at one end. During our 12 years we have stayed in all 4 cottages at various times and enjoyed all of them for different reasons. When family comes...

After visiting the entire island, we came to the conclusion we countn't have found a better spot to stay on the island @ Galley Bay Cottages! Located in a small and quiet bay, the cottages are overlooking the ocean where you can have an amazing view of the sunset. We tried Spice and Sea Breeze cottages and they are both...

I always love to return to Natalies' cottages as she makes me feel its my home away from home and it is for me. Tucked away in bushy gardens and yet with open view of the open sea is special, I like the charming rustic cottages and surroundings....the peace and quiet and I love that I can just pop down...

We stayed in the Breeze Cottage and loved it. During the evenings we dined and/or just sat outside enjoying the quiet, peaceful, relaxing admosphere. Luckily, unlike major resorts the lighting outside is not too bright thus attracting bugs. I just read in the most recent review that the lights were not working and they had to use candles. The lights...

This was our second visit to the wonderful Galley Bay Cottages. After a great trip last year, we decided to come back for a longer stay this year, and we're very glad we did. Once again, we were enchanted by the secluded and lush setting and the amazing views. Hosts Natalie and Peter were as charming and helpful as ever,...

Independently owned Galley Bay Cottages are in no way affiliated with the luxurious all-inclusive Galley Bay Resort, although they are situated on a hill above the resort and have access to the same beachfront. We enjoyed our week-long stay in the rustic but artfully decorated Breeze cottage, although there are a couple of things that could be improved upon. Firstly,...

Fantastic views, short stroll to several beaches, friendly hosts - what more could you want? We had a lovely few days staying in Spice Cottage in January. Natalie and Peter were extremely welcoming and full of useful information and tips. Natalie even appeared with a teapot and some teabags the first morning as she knows that English people can't survive...

Again Breeze Cottage was the perfect place to escape from the European winter. This cottage is not luxurious, but you will find all you need. The hosts Nathalie and Peter are wonderful people. St. Johns is not far away (but you need a car) . And the million-dollar-view from the cottages is absolutely unforgetable! If you are looking for a...
