We just returned from our vacation and we cannot stop talking about how incredible it was. The villa is absolutely gorgeous and the setting is magnificent. Our family of four (2 adults, 2 children) had ample space. Each morning, we would sip coffee outside while sitting under the awning and take in the amazing water view. After a day at the beach, it was great to have the plunge pool- a big hit with the kids! In the evening, we enjoyed the sunsets. We rented a car so we could explore local beaches (Ffreyes and Valley Church were our favorites) but Darkwood is in walking distance and is also a beautiful beach. The local supermarket is a quick drive and there are several good restaurants in the vicinity of the villa. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking pans/pots and the grill was also nice to have. All of the staff (security, maintenance, cleaning) were warm and helpful. We are so happy we stayed at this villa and definitely hope to return!
Best Decision We Made!
When we decided to plan a trip to Antigua we were torn between staying in a resort or villa. Online we were impressed with Tamarind Hills and Gill's villa but were not prepared how truly happy we would be during our stay.
To begin, the property is stuated between two amazing beaches. There are restaurants and An Epicurean grocery store within a 3-5 minute drive.
We enjoyed every moment! Or kids 10 and 4 loved the villa. They had their own rooms, LOVED the private pool and easy access to the ocean.
Tamarind Hills has created such a beautiful landscape and each peppery is stunning. We would highly recommend renting a car to explore! We found the kitchen to be so easy to use and convenient to watch the kids in the pool (with the best view ever).
Gill was so helpful with all of our questions and th local property management team was beyond helpful. We would highly recommend this property and can guarantee you will LOVE it!
Gorgeous 3 bedroom Town Home in Antigua
This was our first trip to Antigua and we loved it! This town home is beautiful and the views are magnificent. It is immaculate and they arranged for some one to come in and clean it from top to bottom twice in the week we were there. There is 24 hour security and there are security guards to let you in and out of the gate 24 hours a day. There are 2 nice beaches within 2 minutes driving distance or if you are brave enough to walk along the narrow roads you can walk. We enjoyed several nearby restaurants. It is on the south end of the island which is not crowded by tourists. Our stay was wonderful and we would love to return in the future!
Amazing location, great beaches and luxury villa.
We stayed for 11 day at Tamarind Hills and our stay was just perfect. The location on the western side of the island is great for sunsets and calm water. The villa was just as expected and even better. We stayed in the bedroom on the second floor instead of the master bedroom on the third floor just because we felt the view was even better from this room and we had less steps to go to our room!
The kitchen is large and has everything needed to enjoy a nice dinner like if we were at home. We cooked on the barbecue outside a few times and it worked just as expected.
The villa is located right between 2 very nice beaches (fryes beach and darkwood beach). The plunge pool on the patio is just amazing. You can have a drink and watch the ocean view right in front of you.
We really enjoyed going to jolly harbour in the morning (less than 5 minutes drive) for jogging on the beach, which is about 1.5km long and vey nice and clean. The grocery store (Epicurean) has everything you need if you want to eat at the villa and has a good choice of wine and spirits.
You must go to Heritage Quay in St.John for duty free shopping, restaurants, local arts, etc... located close to the cruise ships. Try to go when there are not too many ships at the docks !
Natasha, our made, was very friendly and professional, she gave us many advices for restaurants, place to visit, etc... and did a great job cleaning !!!
Our best restaurant was for sure Sheer rocks, located a few minutes by car. Expensive, but we don't mind paying when the food and service are 5*. If you want the best pizza, go to Al Porto. Very good service with a view of the marina.
Thank you Mr Wignall for sharing your villa with us, we can't wait to go back again for another perfect vacation...

Beautiful island, beautiful villa.
Our family spent a week at Tamarind Hills and enjoyed every minute. The villa is just as good as it looks in the photos, it is very comfortable and well equipped and a great place to relax. Restaurants and supermarket are a short car journey away. The villa faces west which means you enjoy a fabulous view of Montserrat and the setting sun. Gill was extremely helpful with advice and guidance, it being our first visit to Antigua. It won't be our last! Highly recommended.
Absolutely wonderful place!!
The views of the Caribbean from this 3 story building are breathtaking! It is secluded and very safe yet close to everything you need. We had a small problem with TV but with a simple call to care-taker and email to Gill it was fixed within an hour. You get a view from virtually every room in the house. The A/C was very nice to come in to after a day at the beach.. Some places do not have air conditioning which would be very uncomfortable. We rented a car and explored the whole island, going to half moon bay, Shirley Heights, etc. If that's not your thing, one of the best beaches we found was directly beside the house at Darkwood Beach. We will definitely be back and stay at this same place. I highly recommend staying here to anyone!! Wonderful place!
