The benchmark is VERY high after experiencing Antigua. Loads to do, weather was great, people friendly and helpful. Sunset Villa was the a perfect home away from home for all eight of us.

We took (U.S.) spring break down in Antigua this year, our first time in the Caribbean. It was my vote, since I am an avid sailor, and Antigua is an international sailing destination (sadly spring break was the week before Antigua sailing race week!) Initially looking at the price of resorts, we quickly decided that this was not cost-effective for us, specifically because we have 3 kids. We were very pleasantly surprised that VRBO.com listed properties in Antigua, and through fortune found that Sunset Villa not only had fantastic reviews, but was also available. We jumped on it immediately and the waiting began... to get there (Carol was great to deal with and very helpful and informative leading up to the visit) - I should also mention that we sought out Dickenson Bay because it's one of the best family beaches.
So eventually the day came to travel - standard trip with connection through Miami. Then we met Trevor: what a great gentleman! He brought us to the grocery store for supplies (food is expensive - research what you can bring down), helped us with all manner of questions and requests, was there when we needed him and stayed out of the way otherwise ;) He helped us set up a couple of day trips, and generally was our 'Man Friday' on the island - like a mega-concierge. We were there for 7 nights, and even though it's not a huge island, we still didn't see everything there was to see.
Needless to say we had a great time. The villa was larger than we expected, and well equipped for a larger family than us 5. It wasn't a resort, but we didn't pay for a resort. There is a little bluff-like 5 min. walk down to the beach, and we took a (respectful) short-cut through Halcyon - our 4yr-old managed the walk just fine, but I'd say you'd have to be elderly or in a wheelchair for it to be a real issue. Since we would go to the beach for a half-day anyway it was never a problem for us.
The villa had everything we needed - towels, grill, games, wifi, even a couple of beers in the fridge! A chef was also offered and I think we would do it next time. Again, we were also very pleasantly surprised with the level of information we were provided with (like what to expect at the airport) to make it a great experience from landing to departure. "Thank you!"
Overall, Sunset Villa is a GREAT experience and GREAT value, and Antigua is PARADISE - just put yourself in Trevor's hands when you get there for the best time. Would not hesitate to go back to Sunset Villa and have been recommending to friends (who thought they could not afford down there, in particular)
[Oh, one last tip: if you do not have a U.S. passport, try to avoid Miami on your return trip to U.S. destinations: immigration there is the worst I have ever seen and we almost missed our 2-hour layover connection.]

My friends and I spent an incredible week at Sunset Villa in March 2012. The views over Dickenson Bay are amazing and many an evening was spent sitting up on the top terrace sipping cocktails and enjoying the sunset. It was only a short walk down to the stunning beach and there were a couple of bars nearby to keep us entertained once the sun had gone down. The villa itself has plenty of space - there were 6 of us and there were enough beds and bathrooms to make sure we weren't living on top of each other. Our host Trevor could not have been more helpful. We were picked up from the airport on arrival, driven to the supermarket, supplied with our own local mobile phone to use on the island, and we were even taken out to dinner on our final night. Great location, great villa, great host, and great value! I thoroughly recommend trying it out.
