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...
I dont know where to start because our experience with Marco has been perfect from the beginning to the end! Starting from the house I just want to say that the place is just amazing.. I've felt it like home every single day! Marco is more than helpfull,whenever you need informations and suggestions about where to go he will always get you in the right way. If you dont know where to go in this beautiful Island.. GO THERE!!!!!!!!
Marco is a great host and the cottages at galley bay had everything I needed. This includes a few groceries to hold us over on the first night, towels, fresh linen, etc. I stayed in the spice cottage, it had a nice bed (only used the big one downstairs but there is a loft with a couple more) that was always comfortable at night due to the pleasant breeze blowing through the windows.
I spent a lot of time outside the galley bay area as I was visiting some friends. The time I spent there felt safe and the beach which is an easy stroll down the hill is amazing. Galley bay is far enough from everything to feel safe and surrounded by sounds of the ocean/birds while still being convenient to town.
If I'm ever back in Antigua I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
I can’t say enough good things about this place.
Marco was very helpful since the first moment; he met me at the airport so I wouldn’t get lost; and took me to a supermarket to get food for the house.
He is a wonderful host and was making sure during all my stay that everything was alright. Also he upgraded me to another villa that had better views.
The house itself was perfect. The view to the sea and the sunset was amazing. The house is light and airy and the constant breeze kept it very comfortable. It is also fully equipped with kitchen utensils, beach towels and other commodities. All windows have screens and a bed net so I didn’t have to worry about mosquitoes.
Wouldn't think it twice to come back again!
We spent a bit more than a week in this absolutely beautiful place. Very quiet, very relaxed. Walking down to the beach for a morning swim, then breakfast on the patio, listening to the birds sing, it really does get close to paradise... And also, with Marco you'll have a really great host.
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.
