The house was everything we expected and the owner Jon was true to his word and very helpful and supportive with details about the house and all aspects of visiting Montserrat. We could not be happier with our choice. The house is perfectly suitable for one family or for two couples as we were. Jon detailed every aspect of the house honestly and accurately. He tirelessly answered my infinite emails and we arrived and stayed without issues or concerns. Jon made sure we had transportation to house on arrival which made settling in easy. On our arrival the house was spotless and move in ready. Although the house is not large it feels very spacious as it is designed for outdoor living and why wouldn't you live outside with such an incredible view of the sea and the volcano. We like to embrace ourselves in the local culture of the places we visit but Jon had suggested that we spend time to enjoy the house and he was right. Each day we spent hours discovering the treasures of the island and meeting new friends but most afternoons we would find ourselves enjoying the very large pool and sunshine on the spacious deck. Renting a house in an unfamiliar location can be a stressful event. This was an extremely pleasurable event. The house is upscale in an upscale location and the pictures do not mislead or lie except that until you are actually there you don't realize how beautiful it all really is. Very few islands offer a location with such a view with a pool and so much privacy. The island is small with very few tourists, no over priced tours and certainly no crowds. If you want an exciting nightlife and lots of action Montserrat is not for you. If you want simple, friendly, safe and quiet Montserrat is paradise just as Jon's house except for the wild roosters. They are not quiet at 5:00am.
