We stayed at this lovely condo in Falmouth Harbour for 10 nights and are absolutely thrilled that we chose this place to stay! The location is superb, right next to the Antigua Yacht Club and within walking distance of plenty of friendly and good quality bars and restaurants. It's also very easy to walk to the historic Nelson's Dockyard (that is well worth a visit). You are also close to Shirley Heights which is a must on a Sunday evening......although take care with the rum punch!
If you enjoy walking there are some lovely trails to walk, including Desmonds trail up to Shirley Heights.
The condo itself has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, and allows you to cater for yourself if you want to, which is great for preparing breakfast and an easy lunch if you are in the area. Being honest, it is not 5star luxury that you would expect from one of the big hotel chains, but then again, you are paying such a great rate for this area, and for us, it was lovely to stay in a place that felt very Antiguan, and gave us the flexibility we wanted.
Finally, the booking process. It really couldn't be easier, and dealing with Orlene was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. She gave us so much advice and information before we travelled which made everything so easy. Also, Gloria comes in twice a week and really looked after us while we were there.
I'm definitely lookig forward to going back to Antigua and Orlene's condo at some time in the future.
Such a great place!
This is such a perfect place to stay. The condo is very convenient to everything and just high enough to afford a magnificent view. It is one of four in a small building so there isn't any/alot of noise from your neighbors. It is just minutes away from everything and unless you want to venture to other parts of the island, there is no need to rent a car. One thing we wished we'd figured out earlier in the trip was that you can join the Yacht Club across the street ($65) for a week and have unlimited use of the lasers - so be advised if you like to sail. The wind's always up! The condo is spotless, bright and airy and equipped just as advertised. The owner is highly attentive to your needs, communicates promptly and is a joy to deal with. The same can be said for the two people who will assist if you have any needs in Falmouth. We rented a car and took one day to sightsee the rest of the island. Unless you're into staying in an isolated resort, Falmouth and English harbor are the places to be. Lots to do, two fantastic beaches, and great, great restaurants. You won't be disappointed.
Many thanks, Darcy, for submitting your thoughtful review.
A quick and very important clarification:
My condo is, indeed, in the town of English Harbour.
The view from the balcony overlooks Falmouth Harbour, and the town of Falmouth is directly across the harbour; hence the possible confusion.
Also, I supply all my guests with several pages of details about the condo, beaches, restaurants, etc. However, I am reluctant to include suggestions which may be temporary or seasonal.
Thanks again, Orlene
We stayed here for four nights and found the location just as described....wonderful views of Falmouth Harbour and the yachts and sailboats coming & going. The patio was a perfect place to start the morning and end the day with a relaxing cocktail. The accommodations were basic but very clean and the location was perfect for walking to the cafe's, bars & restaurants of both Falmouth and English Harbours.
Amazing spot with the most wonderful owner
With less than a week to find the right spot we decided on Antigua with Air Canada flying direct to the island. Right from the first email with the owner we knew we were in good hands. We were a bit worried about making a payment with money transfer, but Orlene was nothing short of professional and incredibly helpful. She made sure to send us all kinds of tourist information and more to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We didn't need to worry about anything or do much research. From the moment we found the place to arriving we had 3 days and everything was taken care of in that time thanks to Orlene and her wonderful staff. Once we arrived we were simply blown away by the surroundings. We knew it was a beautiful harbor but this view was absolutely spectacular as we were overlooking the harbor full of multimillion dollar yachts with the backdrop of turquoise waters and picturesque mountains. The apartment has everything you may need. We came with our two little kids (2,5 and 4,5) and it was a perfect space for us. The two beds put together made for a comfortable king size bed. We enjoyed most of our meals on the spacious balcony with a spectacular view. The cleaning lady who was such a sweetheart came by twice a week and the place was spotless. Everything is located so close within walking distance. We also rented a car for 24 hours but used it over two days (which was perfect) and we did some sight seeing across the island. What a beautiful island. We never felt unsafe. We loved the local experience as opposed to an all inclusive resort experience where you learn nothing of the island and the local people. We met some great people at the beach (5 minutes away walking), local restaurant owners (some great ones), enjoyed the sunsets. It was such a great adventure and the apartment was just the perfect base for our family. The breeze each evening was absolutely perfect and we never felt like we needed air conditioning. Make sure you bring something for mosquitoes though. I would really recommend this apartment to any body. The convenience is unbelievable and after touring the island we really felt like we were at the nicest spot on the island.
Ps. I wouldn't even consider the bad review someone left the owner and the property. Looks like someone with anger issues and a chip on their shoulder.
Great Vacation spot
I stayed at this Studio March 7th to 16th. It is very clean and spacious. It has a great little kitchen which has everything you need. The owner even supplies beach towels for you. The maid come to clean every few days. The place always looked great after she was there. She really does leave fresh flowers.
I really loved the location. I could walk to everything I needed. The owner supplies you with a list of stores, restaurants and things to see. I walked to get groceries, play tennis, the beach, to eat out every night at a different place. I would walk to the bakery for coffee and pastries in the morning, then sit on the deck and view Falmouth Harbor. My favorite time to sit on the deck was in the evening when the sailboat masts lights were on. It is a very short walk to the Falmouth Harbour or English Harbour where you can rent a car, get a taxi or even water taxi. I plan to return and have recommended this Studio to my sister.
We stayed immediately after the awful reviewer above ! We would not normally do a review but this review is so prejudiced we thought we should put things straight. The Condo is as described by the owner. No more no less. It is accurately described. Upon arrival it was beautifully clean and tidy with a bunch of flowers and a small bottle of rum from the cleaner. She called the next day to greet us and then twice weekly cleaned thoroughly right through the condo. It was a pleasure to return to the condo after her visits to find everything sparkling clean,fresh linen and towels.and new flowers.
This was our second visit to Antigua and we used the same condo last time about 5 years ago. We were happy with our last visit, which was why we rebooked. The condo is not sparkling new but was simple, very clean and as described by the owner who we found friendly and very easy to deal with.
So we were two very satisfied customers who will certainly use the condo again if we return to Antigua.
