Mrs Paul meet us with the keys, gave us a tour showed us how everything worked. The place was very clean and quiet and secure. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to see Antigua away from a hotel experience.

I just love this cottage. I have stayed here a few times by myself but on this occasion I had my friend and her two small children aged 4 and 5. It was perfect for kids, they had plenty of room to run around outside without any worries as the cottage is very secure with fencing all around. From the accommodation itself, to the area where it is located, checking in and out, I've never had any problems. It is a short walk to 1st Choice Supermarket and about a 20 minute walk to the nearest beach at Dickenson Bay but only 5 minutes if you have a car. I have always found the owners to be very accommodating and always on hand to offer help or advice if needed.
I really can't recommend this place enough, it's just perfect and I hope to stay there again later this year :)

A pleasant stay for the second time. Mrs Paul the perfect host. Booking was quick and I was able to amend my check in/out times with ease. I would definitely recommend.

Best 2M of our lives! Beds are firm. All appliances we used worked. Hated honking the car horn to open gate but it works! The Paul's are the most awesome couple and were very helpful, friendly and the best neighbours ever! 5Min to Dickenson Bay. 3Min to Epicurean or 1st Choice (if that) or w/in walking distance to Billy's Market. We enjoyed waving to the locals on their way to work (yes, the cottage is on a busy road but how else do people get to work but walk or drive?) - so bring ear plugs if you feel threatened by road noise! And dogs - yep; they bark but they only bark when strangers come near their property - they are just protecting their territory! If you have pets at home you won't mind the dogs; if you don't - again - get ear plugs! But we did not find the dogs intrusive at all. View - was perfectly fine for us. People have complained about the "oil field" view. Yes, it's there - so plant the porch chair right in front of the porch post and then it blocks out the direct view of the oil refinery - but seriously - look beyond the open field of the oil refinery and you'll see the mountains - perfect mountains and the open field...as far as we were concerned we were not bothered at all by the oil refinery. The lights from St. John's at night were beautiful and in the mornings watching the cruise ships come in was very relaxing. The humming birds and other birds flitting about…quite lovely! Peek-a-boo views of the waterway where the cruise ships come in; and a peek-a-boo water view to the right (if you are sitting and looking out). Lot's of hangers for clothes, very happy with the washing machine and clothesline. Service for 4 (plates, mugs, bowls, silverware). Ltd. sm pots (for sauce making) but otherwise kitchen was equipped for our 2M stay. AC in both bedrooms (each w/ a dbl bed) two night stands in the front bdr; one nightstand in the back bdr. Great breeze with both front doors open and the back door open. College dorm size refridg. and sm. freezer which were sufficient for our needs. Gave 4 stars for facilities - specific the bathroom tub drain was not draining as fast as the shower water was flowing and I was constantly cleaning the 3" water mark from the tub from the standing water while showering. When using the washing machine the water would come up into the bathtub and we'd have to clean the tub again. Otherwise, there was NOTHING to complain about. It's an easy drive to Russells, LaBusolla's (has moved from Dickenson Bay over to the airport area), city of St. John - easy access to everything and in a great location! Truly an awesome cottage with awesome caretakers!

CLEGGCaribbean sun and smiles! We stayed here for 2 weeks and wished we could have stayed longer. Very clean, well put together, comfortable house. Lovely family next door to help out with anything you need. Car a must if you don't want to walk long distances but only a short drive to everything you need - supermarkets, stunning beaches and nightlife. Wireless internet access, cable tv and a bbq if you want to relax in on the porch. Great restaurants and bars nearby if you don't. We highly recommend this property and would go back in a second.

ben in nyc new york city, usa. Review Submitted: January 09, 2008 Date of Stay: December 2007My father, brother and myself stayed at this little home in antigua over the recent holidays. The house was just built and next to it is another small home where the owners live, a wonderful antiguan couple. Being a new house there were a couple loose ends to sort out (a leaky faucet and such) and the two owners immediately had the contractor and plumber come to replace the faucet. The house is a five minute drive to the beach, five minute drive to town and a five minute drive to a large supermarket. There is also a smaller supermarket a five minute walk away. The shower had excellent water pressure hot water and the kitchen is nice and full of pots and pans, plate and bowls. The television has heaps of channels. This home also has a great porch for sitting in the morning, the internet is wireless and you can get it from the porch although a wi-fi extender will be installed soon and should allow you access from inside the house in the near future. This is a great home for a small family, or two couples. There is two queen size beds in two rooms, a small living room with couch and an open kitchen in the living room. There is a table on the porch with four chairs., great for dinner outside, the porch is covered so if it rains all is cool. Restaurants are a short drive away in all directions, but we did heaps of cooking. We didn't have a car and walked all over the place! This is one of the best deals on the island!
