Review submitted by Lynn from Ottery St Mary (Submitted: 13 Jan 2010)
We enjoyed the apartment very much and it was spacious for the four of us. Robert who looks after it was very helpful. The washing machine has not been working for awhile and I think it needs to be sorted but in Antigua I know this is very hard! Robert did our washing on 2 occasions which was great. The only thing we were not that happy with was the distance to Jolly Harbour-it was at least a 20 minute walk to the beach and over 10 mins to the supermarket-its a long hot walk back with lots of heavy shopping and children along a rather dodgy road. I would say a car is nearly essential.
Overall, the apartment was very good-well equiped, had smart and plentiful linen,was well laid out and beautifully cool. Nice pool and gardens too.
Thank you Lynn for your review.
A new washing machine is now installed. Getting parts on the island was impossible - despite our best efforts!
I suspect you didnt find the direct track to the beach (about 50 yards past our entrance - approx 13 mins in total). With the time you encountered you must have gone via Jolly Harbour Resort.
The walk to the supermarket does mean walking along the road as there is no footpath adjacent - this is typical in Antigua.
I totally agree, a car is a great asset. Not just for local journeys but for exploring the rest of the island and its 365 beaches. In the absence of a car, and if you have young children, I would recommend using the local taxis for trips to the supermarket. They are quite inexpensive for such a short journey.
I am pleased that overall you were very happy with our apartment. I will pass on you positive comments to Robert.

The apartment was perfect, really spacious and clean, with everything you could need! Breakfast on the balcony was lovely in the morning with a fab view. We had a very warm and informative welcome, with a tour of the local area which was very useful, and the taxi driver was nothing less than fantastic! The nearest beaches were in our opinion the best on the island, with lovely cafes and restaurants all nearby. Thanks so much, we will definately recommend this apartment to friends and family!!
Thanks so much for the apartment, it was absolutely lovely and we had a great time! It was also really useful to have the use of a mobile phone and the lovely taxi driver was so helpful! Claire, UK.
We had a fantastic time in Antigua and thought the apartment was amazing. Everything was perfectly organised, and Jasmine was incredibly helpful. So many thanks! Kind regards, Alice
