About Jasia, Stew & Martina
We are 3 friends who went to Antigua on a once in a lifetime holiday and fell in love with the island and its wonderful people.
Jasia, Stew & Martina purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Jasia, Stew & Martina chose Dickenson Bay
We were lucky enough to spy Little Bay Villa was for sale after being closed up and abandoned for 8 years! We set about a complete refurbishment of the lovely property and in the process made some great friends in the staff at Antigua Village and the Antiguan people. We hope you love our little piece of Antigua as much as we do.
What makes this Villa unique
Little Bay Villa gives uninterrupted views of, and direct access to, the beautiful Caribbean sea. The size of the apartment, the wonderful staff at Antigua Village and the fact that you don't have to see a road or car for days if you don't want to make for a luxury beach side holiday that is difficult to get in most places.

The condo was really nice. Just steps to the beach, which was pretty small due to erosion, but the water was amazing. The condo is well appointed. The only things I wish that could change are to have blackout curtains in the bedroom ( the sun rises and shines right in) and the only air conditioner for the entire condo is in the bedroom, so you have to leave the bedroom door open to cool off the entire unit. Otherwise, the grounds were nice, pool is well kept, and staff very friendly. The water pressure was low the first day, but one of the maintenance people came and fixed it after we called. I’d definitely stay here again.
It’s the most perfectly located unit in this beachfront development if you ask me!
The staff are wonderful, the unit was sparkling clean and had everything we needed. The front porch and patio are a dream. With noting is that the unit is not right on the beach exactly as shown as they have built a rock wall, so you can sit by the ocean at the wall and just take a little set of stairs into the water.
I had such a great time spending my birthday on your property. After renting a car and arriving (very easy to navigate with GPS from the airport) it was safe and comforting to see security and parking lot just a few steps away from our rental. We received a friendly and informative greeting when checking in at the reception office and advised to head to Coconut Grove for a complimentary rum punch after settling down. Our room (29V) was literally a stone’s throw from the beach, it was clean, air conditioned, and had a fully equipped kitchen and back enclosed patio with a nice view of the ocean with closer gate access to the beach. Super convenient and just a few steps away from bar/restaurant Coconut Grove to the left and Ana’s to the right. Both with great food, friendly staff, and good music. The property is quaint, with a lovely pool in the center and a great view of the beach a few steps behind. I read a review the water was yellow before arriving. Yes the toilet water was yellow however kitchen and bathroom water was clear and we had no issues at all.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your birthday break and thank you for your kind words about our lovely villa. We believe that recycled rain water is used for flushing the toilets in the Antigua Village complex hence why it is slightly discoloured.
Well appointed in a great location within the Village complex
Very clean and well maintained by friendly housekeeping staff.
The only drawback was the toilet which repeatedly blocked.
Thank you very much for your 4* review. We’re so glad you loved the location, and that the housekeeping staff looked after you so well. We’re very sorry to hear you had some problems with the WC – we suspect this is connected to a recent issue we had with the water flow which should now be fully resolved. I will certainly bring this to the attention of the maintenance team, so thank you for letting us know.
We hope to welcome you back in the future, when we’ll aim to be awarded 5*!
In the meantime, we send our best wishes, and thank you for being our guests.
Water problems spoiled our stay
We stayed at this unit for three weeks from January 15/to February 05 of this year. It is a lovely unit in a great location on a wonderful bay. Those are the good points, and they are certainly important, but our enjoyment was overshadowed by the quality of the water. The water from all taps that worked was always VERY yellow. The kitchen hot water tap would provide a very small stream of lukewarm yellow water and the cold water tap did not work at all. It doesn't give one a very good feeling when you realize that you as well as all others before you only had this water to use to try to clean dishes and cooking implements. The shower gave only a few sprays of lukewarm yellow water as most of the shower head was clogged and corroded. We mentioned these issues to the office at Antigua Village and were told that the issues would be looked into. They may well have been looked into, but nothing was ever improved. We found that any white clothing we wore got stained from the yellow residue on our skin, some even permanently, resulting in the items being ruined. I'm not sure if the water issues are unique to this property or are prevalent throughout Antigua Village, but it is enough to make me avoid the property in the future.
UPDATE: Antigua Village confirmed there was a faulty valve in the water cistern which caused the issue and has been replaced. No more water problems!
Thank you for your comments. We are glad you liked our property and its lovely location but we are extremely disappointed to hear that problems with the water supply spoilt your visit. We were the last people to stay at the property before you arrived (you may recall you met one of us at the property a couple of days before your stay commenced), so we can at least assure you that the problems you experienced did not exist previously. In our experience, the water pressure is seldom great in the Caribbean, but we had hot and cold clear running water, and the shower head was working fine when we left only 24hrs before. As this is our very first rental season since we completely refurbished and refitted our beautiful property, we are very upset to receive a 2-star review like this. We can only assure you that we have made every effort to create comfortable and high quality accommodate for our guests to enjoy, so hearing that your experience fell so far below your expectations is very disheartening .
The water issue was obviously beyond our control, but we will certainly pass your review on to the management at Antigua Village to find out why the problem was not promptly fixed during your stay. We have always found the team there to be very responsive when any issues arise, and quick to rectify them, so can't understand why this didn't happen in this instance. We can only apologise on their behalf. We would have stepped in to help resolve if we had known, but we had no idea that any problems had occurred until we received your review.
We wish you all the best and are very sorry that you feel we will not be able to welcome you again in the future.
This wasn't my first visit to Antigua, but it was my first stay at the Little Bay Villa, located in the Antigua Village complex in Dickenson Bay. The villa was absolutely amazing! Clean, well maintained, tons of natural light, and just steps away from the beach. I couldn't ask for anything more! The fact that I can hear the waves crashing while relaxing in the living room was more than enough for me. The staff at Antigua Village are extremely friendly and you will not have to leave the complex for anything if you so choose. Not only do I highly recommend this villa, I am already planning another trip.
The one thing I did wish was a bit better was the strength of the WiFi connection. It wasn't the best and I was forced to use cellular data during my trip. Not the end of the world, and honestly, not being plugged in all the time isn't so bad! :)
January 2018 update: We have had a router installed in the bedroom and now have a much more reliable WiFi signal. Additionally Antigua Village have confirmed they are upgrading the entire network in 2018.
