About Aileen & Martin

My husband Martin and I bought our apartment in Las Rocas a decade ago. Now that we have retired we are, happily, able to spend a large part of the year in this beautiful island.

"Home" when we are not in Las Rocas, is Co. Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. I am originally from Co. Antrim and Martin is from Co. Roscommon. We worked in Dublin for many years and moved to Enniskillen in 2000.

Aileen & Martin purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Aileen & Martin chose Antigua

In the summer of 2016 we purchased 134 Las Rocas which had been vacant for many years. It is directly underneath our own house. We remodeled and refurbished it entirely, using our own experience of 10 years here to maximise its potential. We hope you will get as much enjoyment out of your visit to the apartment as we have had in lovingly restoring it.

What makes this apartment unique

To describe 134 Las Rocas as an apartment is a dis-service - it is more like a house in terms of size and facilities. Not like your average holiday apartment, it is a self contained unit with private garden/terraces front and back, and large airy rooms. It has the benefit of having great up-stair neighbours,though!

There is a community feel to the place, and it is so tranquil, yet is within easy reach of the action of Caleta and excursions throughout the rest of the island.

Excellent two bedroom apartment in the quiet Las Rochas villa complex.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days over Easter and loved every minute. The villa is located in a very quiet area on the edge of the Campo do Golf near Caleta de Fuste.

The master bedroom has an en suite shower and toilet. There is also a main bathroom with shower and toilet. The second bedroom has two twin beds. There is a choice of two dining areas. One in the lounge and another in the dining room.

Outside you can choose to sunbathe or relax in the shade and there is also a bbq.

The communal swimming pools were perfect for cooling off during the hot weather.

You don't need a rental car as there is a free bus service from the nearby hotel. This takes you straight to the beach and shopping centre.

From there you can catch another bus to other parts of the island. Corralejo and the sand dunes were our favourites after Caleta.

The villa has a full kitchen and utility room facilities so you don't need to bring everything with you. We managed with just carry on luggage on the plane.

You have the choice of eating in or going out for meals. We often ate in as the local supermarket was fine. If you have a car then we recommend going to lidl as it is a lot cheaper.

For meals out then the Hong Kong Chinese is very good as is El Faro Portuguese restaurant
