"Great value apartment with lovely swimming pool"
The apartment is modern with all the mod cons, it has a great location with beautiful views. The swimming pool is lovely, especially after a long day at the beach. Location is great - but you will need a car - we spent the first week without and it's a long 10 minute walk to the shops along a busy road. The apartment is set well back from the road and has loads of parking. The nearest beach, Valley Church Beach is lovely and only a 10 minute walk also, it has a lovely restaurant, The Nest, which does good food - although there is a wait sometime - who's in a hurry? Don't go there on cruise ship day when there are more than 3 boats in - it get's packed. You can find out the schedule on antiguanice.com.
The apartment didn't need air con on at all during our stay - just open the front door and the balcony door and you get a lovely breeze through. The balcony is great with good seating area and relaxing area and a bbq - which was used many times during our stay.
The bed in our room - the double - was very comfortable. The en suite clean. The kitchen well equipped with a great oven and grill and most importantly a big fridge freezer to keep your ice, drinks and weekly shop in.
There were no bugs - the hotel complex next door de-bugs quite frequently, which does kill off the food for the birds, like martins and swallows - but there was plenty of other bird life.
The owner, Tania, was most helpful prior to us going and her onsite manager was easily available if needed.
