Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

For the traveler in search of a truly relaxed setting, away from the hustle and bustle of the “all inclusives”, beach vendors and cruise ship crowds, Runaway Bay is the answer.

Make this lovely apartment your “home away from home” facing the Caribbean Sea. Your affordable hideaway in the landscaped, tropical gardens a few feet from the beach! Just kickback, relax, soak up the sun and enjoy the beautiful turquoise water of the Caribbean! This is for individuals who want peace and relaxation. If you feel like any of the many activities of nearby Dickenson Bay, just take a 10 minute stroll over there and enjoy the different bars/restaurants, grocery and gift shopping, water sports and scuba. St. John's and Cedar Valley Golf Club are less than 10 minutes drive away, while V.C. Bird International Airport is only a few more minutes. 2 large supermarkets are also only a few minutes drive.

The two bedroom, 2 bath apartment (downstairs unit) at this ,,delightful beach front property is spacious, attractively furnished and right on the beach! It has a spacious living/dining room, fully equipped kitchenette and wide patio looking straight on to the Caribbean sea. In addition to the consistent tradewinds Runaway Bay normally has, the apartment has ceiling fans and optional a/c in the bedrooms - small extra charge.

For the traveler in search of a truly relaxed setting, away from the hustle and bustle of the “all inclusives”and cruise ship crowds, but not too far away - this is the answer!

Previous guests have said 'We stayed a week and were delighted', 'the apartment was lovely - spacious, clean and comfortable' and 'simple but beautiful'!

Either make this your base to explore Antigua’s 365 beaches and other places of interest, or just stay put and relax!

Beautiful beach...casual accommodations

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 7 nights in the bottom apt. We wanted beachfront and it was! beautiful white sand and only a few people on the beach that stayed in the same complex. Something not seen in the pictures, is an oil barge that is off shore and large barges come in daily to deliver oil for the island. But, overall, the view is still amazing. Bring bug spray, lot's of mosquitos!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Both units are great...simple, very efficient and clean with a nice quiet beach only steps away! The on-site staff is very friendly and the price for this little gem is really nice. An ideal place to bring friends/family and rent both units. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Brian

Amazing Beachfront 10 steps from your front door!

  • 4 of 5

This ground floor 2 bedroom apartment is located on beautiful grounds in a quiet location. The area is close to grocery stores, night life and more touristy beaches where you can access more water activities, bars and restaurants. The apartment itself is lovely with separate bathrooms for each of the bedrooms, the kitchen is adequately stocked with utensils and there is staff on the grounds at all times in case you need assistance. The beach is gorgeous! We explored many of the beaches on the island and still found that Runaway Beach was one of our favorites! It is just a lovely, lovely beach and you literally walk 10 steps out of your patio door and there you are. The only negative thing is because the weather is so warm and beautiful, we always had the windows open. Sometimes it was very easy to hear what was going on in other apartments and they can hear what's going on in yours. However, it was a very small concern and we spent most of our day outside on the beach anyway. Staff on the grounds are wonderful and there is a very good restaurant beside the apartments. It truly was a wonderful place to stay and wouldn't hesitate to return!

An Enjoyable Experience

  • 4 of 5

My son, father and I stayed for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the property. The apartment was comfortable, clean and well fitted out and with access to the ocean mere steps away. Access to the local supermarket, ATM, etc was 10 minutes within reach by car. Do try the Italian restaurant next door, both food and service were excellent! Would definitely recommend to travelers wishing to vacation a little off the beaten track versus amidst the hustle and bustle of traditional hotels. Not recommended for those traveling alone as the location is somewhat isolated.
