Our family had an excellent stay at Calabash at the Palms! There were 8 of us (6 adults and two children ages 6 yrs & 17 months old).The description is accurate as are the pictures, but it is more beautiful in person. The view is amazing and it is quiet and peaceful. The kitchen is well appointed, we had breakfast every morning and a combination of lunch and dinner at the villa or out at restaurants.There is a BBQ grill available also if you want to grill out. Jenny was wonderful and helpful, and suggested great places to see and dine and Howard is very attentive with anything you need regarding booking etc. Both are very helpful with any questions or concerns you may have while in Antigua. The property is very clean and very well maintained. The pool is delightful or you can take a quick walk/drive down to Darkwood beach which is wonderful. It's very easy to feel at home and not want to leave. There are some great places to eat close by such as Miracles and Dennis', and there is a grocery store nearby with pretty much everything you need.You'll need to get bottled water I will add that you definitely need some mosquito/bug repellent for you stay as they can be pretty pesky when the sun starts to set. Renting this villa and a car is the best way to TRULY experience Antigua. You give yourself the opportunity to do and see things you normally will not if you stay at a resort and get access to more local places such as restaurants, and shops.You can buy local things roadside such as roast corn, ginipps, sweet apples and other wonderful things! Our experience was so great and we are referring all of our friends who want to visit Antigua to Howard.
