About This Listing
Spice is a spacious cottage that can accommodate 4 + guests comfortably.
The master bedroom has a queen four poster bed which is placed in front of a large window that will let you enjoy the view of the sea and the surrounding trees. Upstairs is an attic bedroom ideal for young guests to enjoy their own private space.
The kitchen/living area is very spacious and comfortable. French doors open out onto a large covered deck that wraps around two sides of the cottage, ideal for having breakfast and dinners alfresco or just to relax or read a book in a quiet and inspiring environment.
Spice is located 4 minutes walk from the beautiful Galley Bay Beach.
Galley Bay is an exclusive area on the west coast of Antigua.
The area is home to luxurious villas which have all been designed to blend with the environment in perfect harmony with nature.
The nearby Galley Bay Hotel follows the same concept of luxury and simplicity with respect for the natural environment.
Shopping centers and supermarkets are located 10 minutes away by car and a small local shop in the nearby village can supply basic products and fresh bread baked in a wood oven.
Local transportation can be found at the village which is 10 minutes walk from the cottages.
A vehicle is recommended, preferably a jeep, that will allow you to visit all the remote beaches and the island...
Fantastic cottage in a great location, great access to fantastic beaches. Would definitely stay again A+++
We rented Spice Cottage in March of 2015 for three adults. It has a charming "old Caribbean" feel and it is in good condition. There is no air conditioning which is typical of most Island accommodations. This is not a problem since the cottage has good ventilation and cooled down at night. The bedroom had an electric fan and Marco supplied an extra fan for the second floor loft bedroom. There is no washing machine but the maid does the laundry for you twice a week which is even better!
Marco was an excellent host. He met us at the airport and guided us to the supermarket and the cottage. He ensured we had everything that we needed. We really appreciated his efforts and he responded promptly to our questions.
In conclusion, we were very happy with our stay at Spice Cottage and with our host, Marco. We very much enjoyed our stay at Spice Cottage and highly recommend it.
Marco is an excellent host with well managed properties. Pleasant stay in a quiet secluded location, nestled in the hillside with ocean views. Short walk to the beach. Previous reviews give accurate descriptions of the property. Had a very nice vacation here.
Marco was a fantastic host!warmhearted, caring and responsible with a genuine interest in his guestsHe helped us with car rental as there wasnt any car available at the Budget car rental though we had booked a car in good time.Marco eecommended many places to see like Half Moon Bay, English Harbour etc. The place is very close to the famous designer Armanis house and we actually saw him walking at "our"beach several times. The views from the cottage is stunning with hummingbirds outside the verandah every morning! The place was clean and spacy and if we would go back to Antigua we would definitely stay at Marcos place again.
Can really recommend Marcos place!
Marco and his properties are simply amazing, and I cannot recommend more. Marco helped us get set up once we arrived, figure out car rentals, get our bearings, and made sure we had everything we needed for what was an amazing week in Antigua.
We stayed in the Villa for a few nights as well as Spice cottage. If you ever have the chance to stay at the Villa, DO IT. It is simply the most stunning place I've stayed in throughout the Caribbean, complete with a breathtaking view and luxurious facilities, to say the least. I will have that view of Antigua from the villa forever implanted in my mind. Also, you look down on some pretty famous houses, which is kind of fun too.
The spice cottage is a well furnished tropical bungalow that was very nice as well. While you don't get the sea view like the other cottages and villa, it has a very warming atmosphere as you're tucked into the hillside, complete with little tropical finches to accompany you while you enjoy breakfast. Also, the beach is a quick 2 minute trot down the road, and we found it to be largely unoccupied.
Marco is great, cottage was very clean and short walk to the beach
Cannot recommend this property more! If you can stay in the villa, you will never want to leave. The views are the best I've seen in Caribbean. Breeze cottage offers the second best views and great privacy and spice cottage is like being in the jungle. Marco is great and if you want to get away and look out to phenomenal water, go to galley bay cottages. Period
