Beachfront next to Sandals
Location, location, location - Our property is situated on Antigua's Dickenson Bay, voted 4th best beach in the Caribbean and the same stretch of perfect white sand as Sandals Grande Antigua, except at a fraction of the cost.
This is THE place to stay to enjoy your own special comforts. To convey the Antigua WOW Factor we have specially commissioned a video postcard to share with you your holiday experience.
Your view of the Caribbean is simply breathtaking, second to none. Dont just take our word for it, we have had 31 glowing reviews from over 65 private rentals which is a lot of satisfied customers.
Our complex consists of 98 privately owned apartments adjoining the tranquil waters of the Caribbean Sea on the West Coast of Antigua.
Nestled amongst palm trees and well maintained gardens our air conditioned 1 bed apartment is enhanced by new furniture throughout and can sleep up to 4 people - with the versatility of a no hassle/easy to fold away double sofa bed with storage space.
Your accommodation benefits from daily maid service and enjoys an unparalleled front line beach location with its own private balcony just 20 meters from the powder white sands of Dickenson Bay.
Car hire would definitely be a luxury option as the complex has everything within easy reach including the First Choice supermarket within 20 mins walk or a short taxi journey. Perfect for families and couples alike you can relax and watch loved ones from your balcony safe in the knowledge that there is a sectioned off swimming area with a gently sloping sea bed.
Dickenson Bay is home to the famous Sandals Grande Antigua & Rex Halcyon resorts where you can sample pay as you go access to the varied restaurants, bars and entertainment of these expensive hotels, whilst maintaining the privacy and freedom of choice of your own luxury accommodation at a fraction of the cost.
Relax in the knowledge that virtually everything is catered for within your resort - a taxi to the airport is a set fee of only 12 GBP - 16 dollars and local buses (number 50) run regularly into the capital St Johns so car hire is a luxury option.
Complimentary bath robes, beach towels and a selection of bathroom accessories are provided as part of your package as well as your own dedicated free internet access.
Spend your days sipping cocktails around the landscaped pool area - which also benefits from free wireless internet - or simply soak up the sun on the one of the complimentary loungers at the beach or pool. Guests will be pleased to know that beach trading is strictly monitored and is restricted to just a few carefully selected local craftsmen aimed at enhancing your holiday experience.
In the evenings watch the sunset on your private balcony - mentioned in our reviews as the least overlooked on the whole resort - or simply walk glass of wine in hand the few steps to the beach to soak up the beautiful surroundings. Enjoy a gentle stroll through the lush tropical gardens for a romantic meal in either of the 2 beachfront restaurants that adjoin the resort at either end - Coconut Grove or Peppers & Lime.
Alternatively make the short moonlight walk along the beach to explore the impressive Warri Pier or Lobster Shack restaurants. Opulent entertainment can also be found in the Grand Casino and Piano Bar, just a 2 min walk away, which regularly hosts themed nights and provides ample opportunity to dress up.
For the more adventurous there is a whole host of fun packed excursions that include swim with dolphins, horse riding, jeep safari, yacht charters, helicopter tours and even a rainforest canopy tour which consists of rope bridges and zip wires! To ensure your holiday is completely hassle free these can be arranged for you by guests services within the reception area at Antigua Village where you will be picked up and dropped off for your days fun in the sun.
There is also a mini golf (2 mins), and an 18 hole championship golf course just 5 mins away which is heavily subsidised as part of the owners club privileges at Antigua Village.
