About this listing
Our two bedroom apartment at Marina Bay on Dickenson Bay is modern comfortable and well situated to enjoy the best of what Antigua has to offer. Enjoy beautiful sunsets and strolls on a quiet beach several wonderful restaurants in walking distance.
This is a very spacious 2 bedroom with generous bedrooms, would fit even two couples traveling with a couple of young kids as well. I have left a beautiful large crib and an ample toddler bed in place as it is so often requested(bedding provided for both).
One of Marina Bay's best features is a Small Beach hut on an otherwise empty beach filled with chairs and chaise loungers for enjoying on this quiet beach. This beach is also at its finest during the quiet summer months.
Interaction with Guests
I have two points of contact for my guests on island, a 8 year trusted housekeeper, and a very close friend who is able to handle any unforeseen incidents. I personally will handle all interactions via email or phone if necessary. I believe the independent traveler wishes to have the feeling that they are in their own space.
My wife and I and our two small boys lived here for five wonderful years. I miss walking the beach at sunset with a cocktail and watching the boys playing in the surf. I miss walking to Coconut Grove for breakfast and Chippy's Fish and Chips, The informal yet chic Anna's or the easy atmosphere and pub grub at Putters, all walk-able and amazing.
I strongly recommend a rental vehicle while on Antigua. We can make arrangements for an airport pickup and a car delivered to the apartment for you. There are groceries to pick up at First Choice Foods, 5 Minute drive, and you will want to explore this beautiful island on your own terms.
Other Things to Note
Electricity is tremendously expensive on Antigua, Sleep comfortably at night, by all means turn on the A/C but don't let it run all day...That's it.
Treat it like your own home, its is ours and we love it. We respect greatly the Airbnb traveler/customer. So we think you know what we mean.
I was raised in Antigua and met my wife on Dickenson Bay many years ago. My parents still call Antigua home and we wish to keep our condo so we can return often to visit. We have recently moved to NY to be closer to my wife's family and to be able to have a broader spectrum of options for our two small boys. I am currently working with a Non Profit in NYC and my wife is taking care of our two small boys. We love our small condo and look forward to opening our former home to travelers who will also fall in love with a wonderful corner of the world that we miss alot!
