About Steve Moore

We have owned property at Halcyon Heights for many years. As we are not living in Antigua all of the time we have decided to rent it out when we are away

Why Steve Moore chose Dickenson Bay

This property is situated in the gardens at Halcyon Heights and has magnificent views over the Caribbean Sea. On the ground floor it is easily accessible and has all you need for a comfortable, relaxing stay in Antigua. All utilities are included and weekly cleaning and household laundry.

What makes this condo unique

This villa has a large A/C bedroom designed in authentic Antiguan style. The living room is spacious and leads out to the porch where you are able to eat, drink and relax. It is has easy access to the parking area. There is access to a shared fresh water swimming pool with chairs and sunbeds

Wonderful Space!

  • 4 of 5

There are so many positives about this villa, the fabulous view, the spaciousness - you're on two levels with the bedroom on the cooler lower level (with both air con and fan) and lots of seating on the main. The screened in porch which was the go to place for dining or just enjoying the view. Saw only two other people briefly at the pool over 4 days, otherwise we could have had it to ourselves. The pics are totally correct, that is the condo just steps from the pool. Overhead fans everywhere to keep things cool. A little dated yes, not everything is super new or modern but comfort goes a long way. Also liked the presence of overnight security starting at 8 pm. Our host Steve could not have been more welcoming, friendly or helpful! Close by is Dickenson Bay, yes you could walk there - beyond the resort end of the beach, the rest of the very long beach was almost uninhabited! Do bring your own beach towels as they're not provided. Horseback riding is available right on the beach there as well. Epicurean supermarket (for those longing for tastes like home) on Friars Road is an easy drive. Like others have said, driving can be a little challenging but we had a small car and managed going from one end of the island to the other, with care and a bit of confusion since road signs are very limited, but no problems. Loved our stay!

The view alone is worth staying here!

  • 4 of 5

The view from the villa's screened in porch is amazing. It is nice the porch is screened in, keeps the bugs/mosquitoes out so you can enjoy the view and dining. The walk to Dickensons Bay beach is only 15 minutes downhill, takes about 25 minutes walking back uphill. Walk downhill and take the 1st right after the Halcyon by Rex resort. This is the Sandals employee entrance and takes you right to the beach, where you may catch boat tours, etc.

The amenities were exactly as described in the listing. It was nice to have once a week maid service (towels, linens and general cleanup).

The place was a bit worn and dated, but overall clean, it could use a good cleaning from top to bottom (i.e. dust bunnies under dressers, closet was very dusty and ceiling fans dirty).

We paid 375 BR pounds per week, which included everything. We stayed for 4 weeks. A great value for such a fabulous location. The pool area is very nice, lots of comfortable chairs, and there is some shade in the pool. The grounds were beautiful, and well kept by the groundskeeper. We would recommend this property to a friend.

Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

The view from the villa is incredible - just like the pictures. It is very quiet. Most of the time I too was the only one at the pool, and driving on the left side of the road was challenging. The villa is certainly very adequate and more than worth the price.

Must say that Judy is a pleasure to talk ytyo. She really makes sure everything is in order and ok. It really took some getting used to Antigua because of needing a car and driving on the other side of the road. P.S. if you don't have to drive....dont. the point of vacation is to relax and there is nothing relaxing about the driving here. The villa is beautiful and quite a steal at the price. It's very quiet here and I've been the only one at the pool when I go. We are close to the beach and that is our next adventure. Stay at Halcyon Heights. You won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We try hard to provide a comfortable accommodation for our guests and aim to respond quickly. To have the pool to yourselves can be a bonus to aid relaxation and an alternative to the busier beach. Yes Antigua driving can be interesting but using a car is a very good way of seeing more of the island and all it has to offer. You do get used to the rules of the road!

Lovely Residence

  • 3 of 5

A lovely place to stay near to a beautiful white sandy beach.

There's everything you need in the villa and the residence is well kept.

The only real problem is the pull-out sofa-bed which is extremely uncomfortable. I would not advise this villa for more than 2 people.

The taxi rate to/from the Airport is USD16 or 42 ECD.

Dickensons Bay
Car: recommended

Dickenson's Bay is a central location on the northern side of Antigua. Recognised for its mile long sandy beach and local water sports and bars you are able to relax and enjoy the sun, sea and sand. Plenty of local bars and restaurants within walking distance or short car ride. Coconut Grove on the beach is excellent for beach and swimming. The bar is open all day for drinks, snacks and serves full menu in the evening. Places to visit include Long Bay for snorkelling, Galleon Bay, Half Moon Bay and the historic Nelson's Dockyard. Shirley Heights for Calypso and BBQ on Sunday nights. Betty's Hope the last Sugar Mill historic site. Catamaran trips leave from the beach at Dickenson's Bay most days. The town of St John's just 2 miles away is vibrant with markets, duty free shopping, historic cathedral and of course many restaurants and local shops
