Stoneyhill Is The Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home - Karol and Merve were awesome hosts and though the accommodations were completely private and separate, we truly felt like we were staying with family. The cottage we stayed in was complete with everything we needed, including a spectacular view. We loved relaxing at the pool after a day on the beach or exploring the island - it's a sweet spot with a sweet view and our favorite night was when Karol & Merve joined us at the pool bar with music and cocktails! They also arranged our car rental with airport transfers (Nathaniel's terrific!) as well as a day sail on Wadadli Kats, which was amazing and totally recommended. Stoneyhill's location was ideal as it was so close to some of our favorite beaches: Valley Church Beach (our #1 fave with The Nest restaurant!), Ffryes Beach & Coco Beach. Shopping was a breeze with a huge supermarket right in Jolly Harbor and we had no shortage of restaurants and bars to choose from, right in the neighborhood- from De Underdog in Jolly Harbor, the first one we came across the night we arrived, to Jacqui O's - our last, indulgent, romantic night on the beach. Dennis Bar & Restaurant overlooking Ffryes Beach, Darkwood after a day of sailing for conch fritters and beers, OJ's Bar & Restaurant for a great dinner right on the beach with a sweet live jazz band. And all the bars/restaurants in between in Jolly Harbor. One of our best meals was at Cavell's (sp? ask Karol for directions) - true local cuisine, delicious and abundant! If you're thinking about a trip to Antigua, you MUST stay at Stoneyhill - you will fall in love with the place and Karol and Merve!

This was our fourth visit to Stoneyhill, and yet again it was perfect.

Karol and Merve continue to be fantastic hosts, never intrusive but there if you need them.

Cannot wait to return.

worth every star

  • 5 of 5

This place was (and is) fantastic! Karol and Merve are perfect hosts and you can interact with them as much or as little as you desire. The view is stunning and they have done a masterful job of landscaping to maximize the privacy of each unit. I sit here wishing I was relaxing on the deck watching all the little birds visiting right now. Beautiful island, great beaches, and stunning views. Looking forward to a return visit.

This was our third stay at Stoneyhill and yet again we had a lovely time. Karol and Merve work so hard to keep everything immaculate and are always available should you have a query.

We had a few days here after our sail in Guadeloupe and it was the best bit of my holiday.

Very much looking forward to a whole week in 2017.

Wonderful. Just loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed StoneyHill cottages in February 2016 and I can honestly say the place was FANTASTIC. We have been to Antigua many times, as we love the island and have stayed in many different accommodation and places. This was certainly at the top of the list. I totally agree with all the positive reviews that Stoneyhill Cottages receives. The cottages themselves are very well situated with a fantastic view from the very generous and well-furnished private balcony. We basically had the swimming pool to ourselves and enjoyed cooling off while looking over the fantastic view of Darkwood Valley and beach.

The cottages are set back a little way from the beach area, but everything is in walking distance. We enjoyed the walks to the beach and even to the supermarket. If you don’t enjoy walking there is a bus, which is extremely reasonable that can get you to the supermarket. Karol, the owner would let you know when she is going to the supermarket if you wanted anything picked up.

I would recommend hiring a car to see the island though as Antigua is a fantastic place to be. The locals are extremely friendly and helpful. All the beaches are wonderful with white sand and turquoise sea. There are also lots of wonderful places to visit around the island. Having said that you could easily stay here without a car without any hardship.

The host Karol and Merv are truly wonderful. They can’t do enough to make sure your stay is the best ever. At the same time you can have total privacy and not even see them if you prefer. They are such wonderful people and we enjoyed their company very much.

I highly recommend Stoneyhill cottages. The location is perfect and is so close to some fantastic beaches mainly Ffyer Beach, Darkwood Beach, Valley Church Beach to name a few.

When we stayed there we met quite a few repeater guest who continue to come back as they enjoyed their stay so much. This is obviously due to the great accommodation and location, but also to the wonderful host Karol and Merve.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and you bet will be back.

Best vacations. Repeat Visitor

  • 5 of 5

Simple put Merv and Karol are great hosts and their property is a perfect hillside setting. The view is to die for and the villas are immaculate. The wrap around porches take great advantage of the ocean view. The pool was just completely refurbished and is beautiful.

There are terrific restaurants, a grocery store and most anything one needs within 15 minutes of the property. My wife and I enjoy driving around the island and seeing the sights. The island is very safe and our interaction with the people has been nothing less than positive. Our only complaint is that more people seem to be discovering the island but it is by no means crowded. It is truly a paradise with weather always in the low 80s and a pleasent breeze on the beach. There are at least 10 beaches within an easy 15 minute drive from their property. OUTSTANDING vacation. We already booked a trip for 2017. Give It a try! Best value we have found. I like to keep my money as much as anyone, but we have encouraged them to raise their rates. Worth every penny....
