About This Listing
Treehouse is a comfortable studio cottage located four minutes walk from Galley Bay beach.
It is inviting and suitable for a couple or single person.
The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a large lunch or just a coffee which you can enjoy while sitting on the large shaded terrace surrounded by lush vegetation.
From the large bed you can enjoy a view of the sea with sailboats and large cruise ships entering and leaving the harbour.
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...
We had a wonderful time at Galley Bay Cottages and would highly recommend it. The views out to the sea are wonderful and the wildlife is an added treat. We had hummingbirds come up to the water feeder every day.
Marco kindly collected us and dropped us back to the airport. Plus he helped us with a quick supermarket shop. The cottages are in a pretty remote part of the island (which we liked). There is a little shop nearby where you can get some provisions, but otherwise you need a car.
The beaches are incredible and the snorkeling is fantastic. There are a host of fish and sea life not far off the shore. It was wonderful.
If you aren't a fan of the big all inclusive hotel holidays, then this is definitely the place for you. We loved having breakfast on the balcony every morning looking out to see.
A big thank you Marco.

The cottages at a Galley Bay are absolutely beautiful. Marco met us at the airport and showed us around the area, pointing out grocery stores and the path to the beach before bringing us to the house. Upon arrival we learned he had upgraded is to a bigger cottage for free! We had booked Treehouse but stayed in Spice. They were close to one another. spice was gorgeous. The house was very clean, we were provided beach and bath towels and Marco even left us milk, cereal and a big bottle of water for our first day there! He was quick to respond to every message and provided cleaning service midway through, even offering us fresh towels and to wash our clothes. Galley Bay beach is a 3 minute walk and it's a wonderful quiet beach. We rented a car to more fully explore the island, which we would recommend as Antigua has so much variety. There is a large grocery store about 20-25 minutes by car that is on par with anything in the us. I have celiac disease so traveling can be challenging but the grocery store had a huge selection of gluten free products and all of the nicer restaurants were very accommodating. We highly recommend Marco's cottages, we had a gorgeous vacation. And couldn't have asked for more!
Marco/Davide were extremely kind and we had a great days in Breeze, which is a fantastic spot in Antigua. Cottage is fantastic, safe and quiet, view breathtaking and the personal care of Marco and Davide the best.
We spent a wonderful week in the Treehouse at Galley Bay. Marco was and extremely polite, courteous and friendly host without ever being obtrusive. He went above and beyond what we expected from a host. The Treehouse is secluded and surrounded by lush greenery. It is only a couple of minutes walk to the most beautiful beach on Antigua. One of the charming features of Galley Bay is its relative isolation, the nearest supermarket is around 5km away, but this isn't a trouble if you hire a car. We loved the place and would be delighted to come again!
Marco was an incredible host. We rented a car and didn't know our way around the island so he met us at a common spot and drove us back to the cottage. Upon arrival of the cottage I literally gasped...the scenery and views are probably one of the most incredible views I've ever seen in my life: Breathtaking. It was as if it were a painting. And the cottage was amazing. The decor and set up is so unique...something I would see in a home & decor magazine. The cottage has everything you need. My husband and I cooked breakfast every morning and sat on the porch overlooking the sea. If you ever go to Antigua you MUST stay here!!!! Thank you for everything Marco! All the best.
Marco was the consummate host. He went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable - and I get the impression that that is just the level of service he provides all of his guests, and the type of guy he is. He gave us great dining recommendations and tips for the local market and even hand-picked (my favourite) food options too. The treehouse was as expected, perhaps better. It was closer to the beach than I thought it would be, and quite peaceful. Though we had neighbours, we didn't hear or see them much so we felt we had plenty of privacy - even on the deck.
The treehouse cottage was great! Beautiful view from every door and window and the bed! we were able to sleep with all the doors open thanks to the bug nets so we could enjoy waking up with the sun and birds!
Close to galley bays beautiful beach. I suggest having a car if you want to easily explore the island/nearby bays and St. John's.
Marco was great! Easy to communicate with and responded instantly to messages. Very accommodating with changing travel plans. Met us and provided us with everything we needed for a great stay! Would definitely go back! A great quiet place to escape!
