Interaction with Guests
We will meet guest at airport, make sure they are settled in, find out if there is anything else they need; keep in touch by phone or by occasionally dropping in to see how they are doing; let them know they can contact us any time if they have any queries or problems. Or if they want to be left alone that's OK too.
Montserrat is a friendly, mountainous island in the Eastern Caribbean, with an active volcano in the southern portion of the island. Activities include hiking, bird watching, diving, fishing, boat trips around the island, island tours, and visits to the National Trust museum and the volcano observatory.
You can also look for souvenirs in the National Trust gift shop, or the Last Chance gift shop at the airport, and you can sample local cuisine at any of the informal restaurants and bars. There are four festivals during the year, and if your visit coincides with one of these you can also experience a glimpse of local culture
A rental car is highly recommended, which we can arrange if wished. Public transport is irregular and not on any fixed schedule, and does not come up the hill to Manjack. There's parking space at the cottage. If planning to drive, bring your driving licence and present it to the immigration officer on arrival, to get your local driving permit.
