We stayed here for two weeks and cannot fault the villa; very well appointed and plenty of space for everyone. There were only four of us but it was clear that a much larger group would be very comfortable too. Wil is the manager and extremely helpful; recommended a fishing trip charter just down the road in English Harbour and we had a great morning and caught several large fish.
Would definitely recommend a car and suggest getting one with good suspension as the roads in Antigua are quite interesting! Ignore any online maps that suggest it's only 20 minutes to St Johns for example; pretty much everywhere is a good 40 minute drive (apart from small local supermarkets and English Harbour). In our experience the best supermarket is Epicurean, of which there are two; one in Jolly Harbour and one (bigger) in St Johns. Locally the small ones have very limited meat (frozen, mostly) and vegetables/salad.
There are several good beaches on the road to Jolly Harbour from the villa, notably Turners Beach (good food too), Darkwood Beach and Castaway Beach (also seems to be called South Beach). The latter is probably best for families with smaller children as the water is shallower; also you have to pass the supermarket so can combine the two in one trip...
We would love to return one day and would thoroughly recommend Willoughby Heights to anyone who wants a relaxing and laid back holiday.
The property is lovely and has a warm community feel. My family and I stayed there for a relaxing week that seemed not too interrupted by Hurricane Maria. The doors and windows closed tight and we didn't hear much noise in this very secure home.
Otherwise, the house is georgous and opening it to the trade winds came with welcoming our neighbors over as well who were so kind. The views from the balconies are breath taking and was a sight to behold every morning. All the bedrooms were well appointed and offered the comforts of home. Thank you for a great stay! I look forward to booking again.
We had a wonderful time at Willoughby. The terraces, pool, bay view and ultramodern villa were the setting for the most fabulous visit to Antigua. Even though the trade winds blew uncharacteristically hard for a couple of days the Heights gave us places to relax in the sun. Superb accommodation for any size of family group, I couldn't recommend it more highly.
We stayed at Willoughby Heights for 2 weeks with our family; daughter, son-in-law and twin grandchildren. The location was amazing with ocean views from every room.
We have never seen or stayed in such a beautiful Villa. The kitchens were very well-equipped, even having a nutmeg grater (useful for the rum punches!) and a wine cooler.Our say was enhanced by the presence of on-site managers Wendy and Paul who couldn't have been more helpful. We would love to visit here again.
This place was amazing - from meeting Nathan & Claire (Management) to JD (Taxi Driver) to housekeeping - words can't describe how generous, sweet and helpful they were all :) If you love this place by seeing the pictures be ready to see it in person - it's stunning from the minute you walk in - the views are breathtaking from anywhere in the house. I give this place an A+++
