This cottage each day became more and more welcoming for us. The layout is open air in a very carefully planned botanical garden. The layers of palms, flowers, cactus, trees, and artwork envelope a spacious pool, deck, and central living zone. It was an oasis of calm and peaceful breezes, sun, and wispy clouds. To awake here was a dream, to come home each afternoon like a heaven. The wifi worked perfectly, and although the tv is stocked with channels, we found ourselves disinterested - the stars and breezes were far more. We felt like we were living in a carib treehouse in paradise. No kidding, it was sweet - easily our favorite of many island retreats. Antigua compared to other isles is very populated, but it is mostly in St. Johns and navigating through that town was daunting, as signs are dated or non-existant, but with a little time you eventually find where you are headed. There's an easy parking lot down by the harbor, but you don't want to go in there when there's five cruise ships! Outside the town is tropical and brilliant. The grocery store is large and amazing well stocked and crisply bright and clean - and it's not downtown, but an easy drive from Hodges Bay. One note - buy the local beer, rum, and stuff, american beer is expensive (so you buy the local)! the meats and produce were the best we've seen in the carib. And oh, the beaches! Half Moon, Ffreyes, 4th beach at Hawksbill (go au natural!) is only a short ten minute trek from the lot. If you like beaching it, this place could go on for weeks and you'd never hit the same one. Snorkeling is standard, you'll see the usual carib characters, and I'm sure there are specific spots that are excellent for that. Gas is easy to find, the rental car situation is easy. John and Sarah are excellent hosts and very congenial. The dogs are all sweet and they vamoose quickly if you ask them to, without problems. The neighbors aren't very near, but they have dogs as well and sometime they get talking about nothing, but it doesn't last long. The winds blow a warm breeze at all times, it rains occasionally, but never lasts too long. In all this is a FIRM RECOMMEND. We are actually... sad to be home.
