I would highly recommend staying at Reef View Apartments in Cades Bay Antigua. Karoll and Nick are wonderful, thoughtful hosts and the accommodation is cozy, clean and bright! Absolutely everything they advertise in their ad is spot on!! Karoll is an awesome cook and will prepare a gourmet Caribbean treat for you if you let her know what kind of food you’re looking for. These apartments are for people who want a taste of the real Caribbean experience. A house in the country snuggled in the lush tropical jungle and only a short stroll to the beach. You will be overwhelmed by the huge selection of flowers, fruit trees and plants in the gardens surrounding the house.
The local neighbors are kind and helpful. The day after we arrived Karoll took us on a tour of the beach outside the apartments. Along the beach we discovered numerous starfish, an octopus, sea conchs, pelicans, hummingbirds and other brightly colored birds. Later that day up on the road outside our apartment we waited for only a few minutes before the local bus took us into Jolly Harbour where we were treated to one of the most beautiful beaches you could ever hope to find.
There was everything we needed at the Harbour including a supermarket to stock up on our food for the day, a dive shop where you can take up scuba diving, and a restaurant where you can warm your feet in the sand while you are waiting for your coconut prawns to arrive. With Karoll’s help and extensive knowledge of the Island, we spent everyday doing something fun and memorable. There are such a lot of things to do on Antigua I feel you need at least 2 weeks to stay there to truly experience the Caribbean way of life. We stayed for 5! I’m glad I chose this place to stay and can’t think of a nicer way to spend a holiday.
Thanks Karoll and Nick – you are both great Ambassadors for the Island!!
