Ellen was one the most amazing hosts we've ever had! She met us at the airport and drove us to her incredible apartment. As soon as we arrived at the apartment she told us to put our beach wear on and she took us to lunch at this great restaurant called Coconut Grove. We relaxed, talked, shared laughs over Pina Coladas and strolled the beach. That evening we asked her where we could go for tasty local food and instead of just giving us the directions she actually took us to the restaurant, dined with us, and introduced us to all of her friends at the restaurant! The restaurant was called Papa Zook...so delicious and really great atmosphere. Thank you so much Ellen! You are amazing. We can't wait to come back.
We enjoyed the 4 days we stayed in Ellen's delightful cottage. It suited our needs perfectly as it was an easy walk to a great beach as well as being convenient to a grocery store. The cottage was well equipped for self catering which we made use of daily. There were lots of extra for the beach - towels, masks and snorkels and even a sun umbrella. The photos online give an true picture of the cottage.
Ellen was a great host. She meet us and an friend at the Falmouth Harbour and then graciously gave our friend a ride to the airport before giving my husband and I tour of the island on the way to the cottage. Ellen had made sure that there was bottle water for us. The next morning she dropped by to bring us fresh milk and a bakery treat!
Ellen and her Paradise View cottage certainly added to making our time in Antigua great.
Overall I think the location was the best part about this place, it was pretty close to Sandals, which has a nice beach. The downside is the mosquito problem in Antigua is pretty bad right now. Some of Ellen's screen were missing or broken so they came in pretty easily. There were also mice that got into our kitchen even if we kept everything in the fridge. Ellen gave us some great restaurant and bar suggestions and once we were comfortable with driving the trip downtown was easy. Our cooking gas ran out while we were down there, Ellen came to fix it and offered to refund us for our days without it (still waiting on this). Overall she is a great host, but the property could use a little upkeep. * We stayed in her house next door not the cottage.
The reservation was canceled 44 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Ellen is amazing. She went above and beyond what I expected from a host. She picked me up from the airport, showed me around, took me to the grocery store and was extremely warm. The house was perfect as well. Had everything I would want and more. I had a great experience with Ellen and will definitely be back the next time I am in Antigua.
Ellen is wonderful. The place is super cute and very pleasant. All amenities incl internet work great. Paradise view is the best part of the island to stay in. The beach 10m walk away is the nicest on the island by far. Great restaurants nearby. Helpful to have a car but not a must. Will definitely be going back! Thank you Ellen!
Very nice appartment, very good location.
Thank you Martin hope you both enjoyed.
See you again !!
Ellen was wonderful to us! She met us at the apartment and even had beer in the fridge upon arrival! She let us use snorkel gear and beach towels, and willingly gave us a ride back to the airport at the end of our stay. The location is only a 10-15 minute walk from the beach and the neighborhood is beautiful. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our stay.
Ellen's apartment is as in the pictures, so as soon as we got in we were very pleased and felt like at home. Cosy apartment with everything you need, even a welcome drink supplied by Ellen :)
Walking distance to Dickenson Bay, which is lovely! But for exploring the capital and the island do rent a car.
Ellen is super friendly and always willing to help and show you around. She will take great care of you!
We couldn't have wished for a better stay and experience :)
Staying in Ellen's paradise apartment was completely wonderful!! The apartment is extremely bright and cheerful. It is stocked with everything you need, comfortable bed, shower, full kitchen and sitting area with a table. Ellen was very generous to stock the fridge for us with a few essentials and drinks. The apartment also has super fast wi-fi and Cable TV. Ellen was so incredibly helpful. She picked us up after our sailing trip, gave us so many pointers about Antigua and even gave a ride into St. John's for dinner. The apartment was so comfortable and beautiful we really didn't want to leave. It's a perfect place to stay!!
