Having read the three existing reviews, it is difficult to add anything fresh; I would agree with all the comments therein. We had the most perfect week in Apartment 412, with the three bedrooms well suited to our two adult / two teenager / two 8-year-old family.
The apartment is every bit as stunning as other reviewers have indicated, particularly the huge balcony which served beautifully as our dining room. You really couldn't get a better setting.
Support from the owner's side (Ollie Thomas) was first rate and very friendly, his representative in Antigua (Pascale) could not have been more helpful, and the staff at the resort itself were all very welcoming and generally efficient.
I would echo the recommendation for a hire car. Nonsuch Bay is lovely but having a car opens up the island to you and there are so many great places to visit only half an hour's drive away.
We didn't sail (although the sailing is clearly excellent) but did take a boat from the resort for a half day's swimming and snorkelling at Green Island, which was a lovely spot. We also visited Half Moon Bay, Nelson's Dockyard, Shirley Heights, Stingray City, Valley Church Beach, Runaway Bay and St John's (lunch at Hemingway's), all of which were brilliant, so the car was a great success.
The beach at the resort was much nicer than I was expecting, given some comments in other Nonsuch Bay reviews. It is a bit weedy underfoot if you wade out but once you are swimming you don't notice it. It is very pretty, the water's clear, the swimming is sheltered and very safe, and the beach is clean. The three infinity pools were also all popular with the children.
August proved to be a great month to go. It was warm / hot, but there was a good breeze blowing all the time which kept it comfortable at all times. We had rain most days, but generally only for fifteen minutes or so and then it would brighten up again, so the rain was never a problem. Comparing the rates for August with peak season, I would say August is the time to go! It's true that some restaurants are shut, but we found many places at the cheap and cheerful end which provided a good mix with the fine dining available at the resort. For us a mixture of a few dinners in the resort restaurant, a few dinners self-catered on the fantastic balcony, and lunches around the island provided a good balance.
All in all a fabulous holiday. We are all keen to return to No 412 if we get the chance!
The conditions at Nonsuch Bay are outstanding for small boat sailing. The two square miles of enclosed waters are protected from the open sea by a barrier reef and the bay faces the consistent and warm trade winds. Kite surfing and windsurfing are also readily available. you can also take advantage of a great fishing bay.
There are some fantastic beaches in Antigua; however, for the combination of tranquillity and the natural setting, it would be hard to beat Half Moon Bay. A visit to Half Moon bay is not complete without stopping for a drink or snack at Smiling Harry's Beach Bar where you will be able to take advantage of Harry's dish of the day in one of the Island's most laid back venues.
There are multiple infinity pools as well as a clubhouse with restaurant and bar located on site at the resort.
