“Wonderful holiday” Having never done a direct rental before we were slightly nervous however the service we received from our original enquiry right through to our departure was second to none.
We were met from the airport and taken directly to th
We stayed at Ffryes for two weeks without a problem, the management team were there to meet us when we arrived and the villa was clean and tidy inside and out. The villa has everything you need for a … More
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. …
Wonderful holiday in a beautiful country
We were a family of 6 adults who stayed at Ffryes villa from the 22nd of december 2012 until 4th January 2013 we all had an excellant holiday. Ffryes villa is very charming, decorated with taste, clean and very spacious with a new internet router that works to perfection and all the appliances you need to have a wonderful holiday in beautiful Antigua. The veranda for al-fresco dining surounded by tropical plants with colourful birds visiting the garden is blissful for breakfast, sunbathing or a late cocktail in the evening and the swimming pool allows an early morning or late night swim.
Dan the caretaker and Yasmine the house manager certainly make sure your very well looked after throughout your stay.
I had been in Antigua and other caribbean islands before but had always stayed in hotels, renting the villa gave us more freedom . We found many delicious charming restaurants , my favourite is Hemingsway in St. Johns, the lobster, crab cakes and cocunut shrimps west indies currys and creole sauces are mouth wateringly delicous, however if you like a steak cooked to perfection try Peters at Jolly Harbour , or an excellant Italien is Abracadabra at the English Harbour.
We took a day boat trip on excellance from st. Johns to the sister island of Barbuda. The islands is stunninly beautiful with such soft white sand , the sea a soft pale transparent turquoise and the crew of the boat trip were excellant, caring and tendering to all of our needs. The beaches in Antigua, well there is so much choice each and every one as beautiful as the next- Finally a big thankyou to he Marianne the owner of Ffryes villa , the Christmas tree and the christmas greetings message was very kind and thoughtful gesture.
Finally Antigua is a strange mixture of wealth and poverty, beautiful landscapes gorgeous sunsets, stunning beaches, some very good restaurants and lovely, happy, Antiguan Caribbean people. …
