About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our secluded air-conditioned villa can be considered your 'home away from home' and is the ideal location for your exclusive Caribbean getaway. We have designed and decorated Sunset Villa to be comfortable and welcoming with all of the amenities of a hotel, without the hotel price! The large windows and two large balconies flood the villa with light and provide front row seating to the Caribbean's most incredible sunsets.

The bedrooms have been recently upgraded with high-end Queen-sized beds outfitted with luxurious memory foam mattresses. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with high end Italian appliances and increased counter space.

Sunset Villa is located near some of Antigua's best restaurants and entertainment. We are also a few minutes walk from tennis courts and a few minutes from Cedar Vally Golf Course, the largest and most popular golf course on the island.

At Sunset Villa, we pride ourselves on impeccable service, which includes:

Transportation to and from the airport for small parties, organization of rental cars at discounted rates and any other pre-planned requests, a knowledgeable, helpful guide to help you with any additional needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location with beautiful views of Bay! Plenty of nearby places to eat, watersports, etc. No problems with the villa at all! Really like that you accept PayPal! We would definitely stay at the villa again if we return to Antigua.

Trevor was great the entire week as well as Ian our cab driver. Trevor will line up any trips or needs as well as take you to the grocery store for the initial trip. He was always available if we had questions. The villa itself was somewhat disappointing. We have booked many trips using VROB and this is the first time we felt disappointment. Pool access was very important for us and after arriving we found out the villa next door would not let us use the pool as presented by the renter. The lay out was very different with a bedroom between the kitchen and living room- not good for individuals with different sleeping habits. We felt very secure with the security system. The views from the deck were fantastic and we even could enjoy music at night from the nearby resorts. With great views comes quite a walk with good size hills. This is not for anyone who is not in shape or has difficulty walking. One member of our group had to take a cab up the hill each day from the beach.

a fantastic vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Antigua but it definitely won't be our last. As a matter of fact we have already book a stay for next year. Our stay at Sunset Villa was perfect. It began with Trevor meeting us at the airport. As other guests have noted we can not say enough about Trevor. He was so pleasant and helpful. It's like having your own private concierge. The villa was perfect, lots of room, brand new kitchen, fabulous balconies. The views are breathtaking. Each night we watched the sunset while having dinne r on the lower balcony. The beach is just a short walk away and as for the hill not bad at all. We didn't do a lot of exploring while we were there because we were so content to just stay local. We did have lunch at Anas on the beach and it was 5 star all the way. Plan to see more of the island on our return visit. My brother and his wife flew in for a few days and fell in love with the villa and the location. They are planning on coming back again. This is the perfect vacation spot for all those who want the beauty of the island without all the congestion of resort hotels.

Great Location, Fantastic Caribbean Ocean Views, Full a/c

  • 3 of 5

I loved the location of Sunset Villa as you can walk down to beach if you like a good walk back up, only 2 minutes to a large groceries store and 5 restaurants, a beautiful beach for relaxing or water sports with several beach bars. The villa is moderate in interior appointments but very comfortable in regards to bedding and sofas with full a/c and large outdoor patio with gas grill my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. With free airport transfers it made getting to the villa stress free. Plus Trevor will take you to the grocery store while you wait for your car to be delivered to the villa by booking with Oakland Car Rental and pickkup at villa too. I recommend the villa for those wanting a nice place to stay at a responsible rate so you can spend your money on other activities like the Catamaran Ride to Cades Reef via Treasure Island Cruises for excellent snorkeling, entertainment and lunch or Antigua Paddles for kayaking and short walk up to top of Bird Island for great pictures (get the pickup and dropoff as you won't find the place on your own) Antigua has the most gorgeous white sand beaches and aqua blue waters.

Going from 11 degree "Thunder-Ice" storm to beautiful Antigua was exactly what the doctor ordered! The Island beaches are fantastic. The sunset every single night of our stay was absolutely breathtaking and watching all the boats and activities going on in Dickinson Bay while drinking our morning cup of coffee was so relaxing. We could not have asked for a better view from our balcony. We decided to rent a car which allowed us the opportunity to drive to other beaches, sightseeing, St, John's and mingle with the friendly local Antiguan's. WARNING however, it was a bit challenging driving around as there are not many signs to follow and the roads are narrow and is some need of repair, this added another layer to our adventure. Carol (owner) was great to work with as we were planning our stay. Trevor (property manager) was the perfect host, he was so accommodating. We had accidentally left some items behind and before I could even realize they were gone, I received a phone call and within just a few days I had them back. SIGH of relief! We did not spend most of our time in the villa, the beds were comfortable, it was great having a washing machine! Wifi and telephones available to us made keeping in touch with our loved ones back home very easy. The "Blu Pineapple" Restaurant across the street makes the best pizza! We went Kayaking/Snorkeling with "ANTIGUA PADDLES" the lovely owners Jennie and Conrad La Barrie and their son (James) were absolutely gracious hosts, if you enjoy snorkeling, this activity would be worth you while!

Best Holiday Rental Ever

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in a few rental properties both abroad and in the uk and this is the most beautiful as well as practical villa that we have stayed in. After searching many properties for a couple of months I found sunset villa, saw the view and booked it straight away. There was 4 of us but the villa is more than big enough for 6 even 8 people. It had everything that we need especially in the kitchen the facilities were excellent. This villa is a real home from home (unlike other places i have stayed in that say they have everything that you need), there is even a separate room with a washing machine and an iron. I came home with no washing this year it was great. The view from the balcony is one of the best on the island even the chap that dropped the hire car off to us said he has lived on the island for 45 years and never seen a view like this. The sunsets are amazing, the use of the swimming pool at the hotel next door and the use of a mobile phone while you are there is a special extra. This was my 3rd time to Antigua and I would never get ripped off and stay in a hotel again. I would recommend this villa to anyone who wanted a really nice villa with a beautiful view in the most highly sort after area in Antigua. The famous Dickenson beach is a 5 minute walk away as well as the local shop and a couple of restaurants. So basically everything that you need is close by so you don't even need to hire a car unless you want to drive round the island. Trevor is brilliant, he was there waiting for us on arrival at the airport and after taking us to the villa he took us to the shop to get some food in. When we got back to the villa he arranged car hire for us and any trips that we wanted to do at a discount price. The only thing that I would say to book before you go is the Zip Wire that is the only thing that is cheaper to book before you go. Trevor was only a phone call away and he helped us out with many things for the week we were there and are very grateful to him. If you want a villa in Antigua then book this one as ive said I have already spent months looking for the best one on the island and this is it. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Tracie

Excellent villa with the most beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in the best location ever. It had everything that you would need and we loved the little extras like the use of a mobile phone whilst you are there. Trevor was there on time to meet us at the airport and was very helpful throughout the entire holiday. The use of the hotel pool next door was an added bonus. The beach and local shop is a 5 minute walk away and there are plenty of restaurants near by if you don't want to cook. The kitchen has more than enough equipment infact the villa is a complete home from home. We would definitely return and recommend this villa to anyone.
