The property has a very good location, 5 minutes from St. John. Very affordable and the owners are really nice people and always willing to help you out on everything you need I will rent this property again if I ever decide to go to Antigua again for vacation.

A fantastic bargain. Lovely cottage, about 10 mins drive from Dickenson Beach. Short drive to modern, new supermarket and coffee shop. Only issues were the barking dogs in the back and the busy road in the front, but once you acclimate you dont notice it. The property managers in the adjacent house were cooperative, friendly and helpful. If you want something directly on the ocean, this isnt the place. But if you want a clean, roomy and comfortable place to stay, you cant beat this place.

My friend and I have recently returned from a stay at this property, and have to say that it was amazing!! It had everything we needed in the cottage itself.. like a home from home. The location was great.. just a couple of minutes from the beach and a minute from the supermarket. We were so happy with it, that we have already re-booked to return. WE LOVE IT! 🙂

Very clean and well maintained. Great having landlord next door if assistance is required (propane was used up during a meal and they changed it immediately). Very friendly and hospitable to deal with. Good location. Easy access to grocery stores and beaches. Second time staying here and would do so again. Highly recommend.

We were very happy with our accommodation. Its located in a lovely, quiet community. Easy access to local transportation, close proximity to St. Johns and Dickensons Bay and the supermarket ( the latter within walking distance ) I highly recommend.

Nice little house far enough out of the city to be relaxing, close enough that its easy to get there. It was very clean. The kitchen had all the appliances you might want while on vacation, and enough utensils to use them. The owners pay attention to detail, from the good toilet paper to the stash of books available in case theres a rainy day. I would stay there again if I went back to Antigua.

We had the most lovely time. The villa is super value for money and the owners family, living close by, were absolutely great. Friendly, kind and helpful but not at all intrusive. The pretty villa in a pretty, well kept garden is ideally situated close to shops, beaches and restaurants. The villa was clean and tidy, the A.C. and fans wonderful. It was a super base for exploring the island. Ideally an extra mirror in the second bedroom, extra shelving or drawers etc. and cushions for the patio/terrace chairs would be brilliant. We didnt cook - this was a holiday afterall - so we found kitchen utensils/crockery adequate. Although a few more drinking glasses would have been handy. However overall, this is a super villa and as previously mentioned good value for money and we shall return.

We stayed for 2 weeks this September. Prior to arrival, all questions answered by the owner very helpfully. Property was in very good condition and the owners Mother, who lives next door was very helpful in answering any questions we had while we were staying at the property. Only downside was the occasional barking of dogs during the night. Useful supermarkets and a garage very close by. Under 10 minutes drive to Dickenson Bay. We would definitely recommend the property.

My boyfriend and I loved this place! It is clean, fresh and new with everything you could need including a washing machine and a clothes line to dry your clothes. Whilst being so close to the owners property, you have a sense of being secluded and alone. The owner is just lovely. She has just the right balance of being helpful when needed and leaving guests to enjoy their privacy. It is a 2 min drive to a good supermarket and a five minute drive to St Johns. To be honest, we felt more like it was our own home than a holiday rental. Its rare to find that. Absolutely wonderful. I cant recommend it enough. Thank you for your kind hospitality and hope to see you again. Hilary & Adrian.

Great property! Looks like a brand new cottage. You can walk to the beach, but it takes about 25 minutes. You really need a car to get out and enjoy the area.

Our stay at Friars hill was everything we hoped it could be. The property was very clean, well equipped and in a great location, close to everything. As we spent 2 weeks there, having a washing machine was wonderful. The property also had a hairdryer, ironing board and iron, air conditioning and fans in both bedrooms. Although you really didnt need the air conditioners as the house had a great breeze once you opened up the front and back doors. The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful and make you feel very comfortable. We have visited Antigua many times over the past 15 years and this was the best place we have rented to date. Great value for the price. Walking to get groceries and to the beach would be quite a trek but certainly possible. We rented a car as we like to tour the island. I would not hesitate to rent this property again on my next visit to Antigua or recommend it to friends and family. The only negative comment I can make is that not being able to park our rental car inside the gate was a bit of an inconvenience. Other than that, I give this property a 9 out of 10.

We would like to reflect many of the previous comments, for antigua and its location, this Cottage is outstanding value. The Cottage is clean and comfortable & the landlords who live adjacent to the Cottage are a smashing couple,very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. It does lack cooking utensils & ovenware, which at times made cooking challenging, its probably now due for refreshing.A car is absolutely essential unless you really like walking, though Taxis are readily available & the buses are incredibly cheap. Most home owners appear to have dogs in Antigua, and at times you will pick up this noise from the neighbours, however this also adds to the security of the neighbourhood. Overall we would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.

The cottage was immaculately clean and we felt very safe there. The care-takers were extremely kind and generous and made us feel at home. Dickensen Bay is only a 1-1/2 mile walk, and grocery stores are also close-by. The wireless Internet service was great, but be sure to bring an international phone as the cottage did not have one.

My high school classmate and I rented the bungalow for 10 days in late July when we returned home for our High School reunio n. We loved the accommodations, it was just what we wanted..simple island comfort. My favorite place was the veranda at night, the breeze is excellent. The only drawback to the property was the gated entry. The owners parents have an adjacent house within the same grounds and there is a padlock maintained on the entrance gate. On arrival we were given 1 key, so unless we both had the same outing plans it became a nuisance to have to coordinate meeting somewhere or scheduling arriving back at the property at the same time to get access. A larger television and a mirror in the 2nd guestroom would also be some recommended upgrades. Overall it is still an excellent choice as it provides all the amenities and is well worth the price.

The house is the best value on the island. This was my 2nd time staying there in 2 months. I have recommended it to several medical students for their parents book when they are visiting. The couple next door seem like family now!

We spent two weeks in Antigua and would definitely recommend Friars Hill Cottage. It was outstanding value for money - clean, tastefully furnished and well equipped. We hired a car for the duration of the holiday which allowed us to see a lot of the island. We ate at a number of quality hotels but I wouldnt swap our chosen accommodation for anything we saw! My only request would be more mirrors - theres only one small one in the bathroom. As two girls, wed definitely have made use of a full length mirror! An additional key for the automatic gates would also have been helpful (especially when returning late at night) and would have allowed us to park on the drive. These are merely suggestions and the lack of either didnt detract from an excellent holiday. Clovis and Dave were very welcoming and helpful, as were everyone we came across during the holiday. Id definitely visit Antigua again and I wouldnt stay anywhere else. First rate accommodation!

THINGS TO DO

Enjoying Antigua

If you hired a car (which is recommended) you could travel the length of the island in about 30mins or so. You can hire a car from over seven operators at the airport and even have them deliver the car to the house.

If there is a big festival or major event on, it would be best to book in advance as cars can be in short supply.
