Soul Awakening!!

  • 5 of 5

Where does one start? Do we start with the beautiful winding roads – with the fantastic view beckoning us to our Villa? Or the first glance onto the property as our private gate opened, to be greeted by the most beautiful horticulture...or do we discuss the opulence of our view when we opened the front door. Villa Nicobar’s subtle décor is asthetically pleasing to the eye... Walking from room to room served as a treat, even the downstairs quarters. Every morning and evening we were beckoned by a cool breeze, the pool (where the kids lived in the entire time), jacuzzi, ocean and blue sky…only to sit on a veranda which encompassed rain clouds, rainbows and daily visits by the beautiful hummingbirds. Lest we not forget, the rain shower heads and bidet in all the bathrooms... The only downside was the TV not working and the unsecured wifi; however, it made for more family conversations at the kitchen island – leaving us worry free from all the chaos going on in the world.

One person in our travel group said "during my travels, I must say, I’ve never experienced my soul awakening as it did in that beautiful space….it was well worth the money….."

When the children (ages 12 and 9) have a blast and ask, before we departed, when are we coming back, you know the vacation was a resounding success!

Then Merle and Rupert. Merle was our airport guide, grocery shopping guru, great assistant, answered our many questions, provided recommendations and looked out for our wellbeing - she made us feel at home.

Nicobar has ruined us...

Please tell us you have villas in other tropical countries for rent. Please?????

An incredible villa with stunning views. An amazing holiday and throughly recommended

  • 5 of 5

When seeing the pictures and reading the reviews the reality is often different. I can only say the view and villa is even more beautiful in reality.

We spent several days exploring the local beaches and lounging by the pool in the afternoon. The deck is huge and there is a 6 burner Webber perfect for BBQ outside. The bedrooms are all spacious. Merle the housekeeper is a gem. She looked after us and made us feel very welcome. The villa is really well located close to St Johns and everything is a short drive away. Have stayed in Jolly Harbour before we much prefere the view and not getting eaten to death by mosquitoes!

Overall a fantastic vacation.

Wonderful stay at villa Nicobar - highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

We were two Italian families with four kids (of 2, 4, 5 and 7 years old) and had the most wonderful stay at Villa Nicobar. The Villa is exactly as shown in the pictures, rooms are very spacious and confortable, the kitchen super equipped. It was just the place you want to be after a day out at the seaside. All kids had an amazing time, they enjoyed the two pools (including the big one, which has a shallow part where they could play) and have never slept that tight ;-) Nigel has been extremely responsive before our departure,patiently answering all our questions. Merle, the housekeeper, is a wonderful and most helpful person and has also a great connection with kids. We also hired a chef who was suggested in Nigel's memo to organise a birthday party and we had a great time and dinner. Hard to leave villa Nicobar at the end of our stay!

A beautiful spot!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful trip to Antigua with the family. The villa Nicobar was stunning - we had a huge bedroom and en suite bathroom - but all the rooms were a generous size. The villa has a v spacious living room area, a well equipped kitchen and has fabulous views across the bay. It is within easy reach of the beach. The pool was a bit nippy, but a lovely size and just as it looks in the phots. I can recommend Charlie the chef who cooks a divine seared tuna and then lobster. Delicious! We hired a car for flexibility, and it is about 20 minutes from the nearest supermarket. Beware, as food is really expensive and the main supermarket, Epicurian, is extortionate, although it has much more variety on offer. We also chartered a yacht for the day, 'Amaroo', which took is from English Harbour and moored in the bay for the evening. Fabulous! I can recommend Nicobar thoroughly and we are already dreaming about our return! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi Caroline I am glad you had a great holiday. I am afraid you can blaim mother nature for the pool. Antigua has had the coldest January for 40 years. Sun on full strength again and back up to 28 degrees. Kind regards Nigel

A really lovely villa with spectular views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Villa Nicobar. The villa is very spacious with all the bedrooms well appointed. The infinity pool is a real feature and swimming whilst looking out to Deep Bay is an experience. Merle the housekeeper could not do more for us and made us feel very special. Can't wait to go back

Wonderful Nicobar!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home and breathtaking views. Merle attended to our every need, including removing sea urchin spines from my son's foot and taking us to the fish market. She's the best! Everything was just perfect, from the house, pool, gorgeous beaches (make the trek to Rendezvous!), horseback riding and scuba diving....we packed it all in! Hope to come back. Joni
