Absolutely stunning two weeks at Marco's Bacchus Villa with my partner and 1 year old baby. Privacy, luxury and breathe taking views allowed us to get lost in the exquisite experience at this beautiful Villa.
The villa is well equipped with everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible and lovely maid keeping the grounds tidy in a friendly and home grown way. Marco is the perfect friendly host who helped us from the start right through until we left the islands. Very willing and went beyond helping us with extra needs. A holiday that we shall not forget in a hurry and a dream place to most definitely visit again very soon!
Thank you Marco for a truly splendid break in the pretty hills of Five Islands.

Great location with beautiful view on the Caribbean Sea. Perfect place for a relaxing and resting holiday far from the noise and regulated times of hotels and resorts vacation. The house interior is beautiful and ideal for a small family of 3.
It has all it needs to make the stay contort able and enjoyable. Located very close to a beautiful and quiet beach and not too far from main town St. John's shops. Marco is a great and nice host always willing to help to make the vacation a nice experience and provide information to discover Antigua.
Marco was a great host, he was very flexible and helpful. He greeted us at the airport the day we arrived and gave a lot of useful advice. Galley Bay has a beautiful beach, the place was very comfortable. Marco did everything to make sure that we felt at home. All in all great experience!
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!
The Villa was Fantastic, very private with 2 detached beautiful bedrooms with very comfortable beds. The main living area and kitchen were great to prepare a nice meal with our BBQ. I can highly recommend the villa for a nice relaxing getaway. We could have stayed a week easily. Marco was also very nice and so easy to deal with, he even let us stay longer as there was no one coming in the following day. Thanks Marco
the perfect holiday. It was a typical Caribbean Cottage surrounded by nature and with sea view. it.s five minutes from one of the most beautiful beaches in antigua. and 10 minutes by hawkbillbeach, another beautil beach. The house was ery clean and Mark is really a nice and helpful host.Perfect Service. Adivice:you have to go to fryes beach :)
Marco was an excellent host: attentive, timely and speaks perfect English, Spanish and of course Italian. He met us at the airport and lead us to the apartment so we wouldn't have any trouble finding it. He also showed us the main markets on the way. And then gave us all the tips we needed for our stay, including where to eat that first night and what beaches to enjoy.
The cottage is wonderful and just as pictured. The view is even better than the photo in the main picture. A quiet and romantic beach at the foot of the hill. The house has all the utensils and Marco left all the basic essentials, including a few fruits and cereals. Large living room and king size bed. The balcony has a great breeze, as the name implies, and you almost don't want to leave, even though the Antigua beaches are spectacular. An easy car ride into town, but still far away from the bustle.
There are a lot of mosquitos on the island during the season we where there (January) so they stopped us from star gazing or enjoying the jacuzzi at night. There were citronella candles and mosquito spirals at the house though and the bed had a mosquito net. Marco kindly gave us a mosquito net for the baby crib as well.
Don't hesitate to book with Marco and make sure to rent a car to get the most of the island. A day trip to English Harbour with lunch at Catherine's Cafe, which Marco had recommended to us, was fantastic.
Marco was an excellent host and extremely helpful! He met us at the airport and we followed him to the cottages to make it easier for us to find. The cottages had a great view from the hill and perfect for having a BBQ. Thanks Marco, all the best!
l'accoglienza dell'host è stata perfetta e il cottage corrispondeva alla descrizione. marco è stato molto professionale e cordiale, oltre che sempre disponibile per ogni informazione sull'isola. ad esempio, il giorno dopo la ns. richiesta ci ha fatto consegnare un phone nuovo e più potente!
We had a great time staying in Antigua at the Treehouse. Galley Bay is a fantastic location, with a great beach nearby. We bought fresh bread almost everyday from a local shop and definitely made use of the kitchen which was well equipped for our needs. Marco was always available when we had questions and very helpful. Definitely recommend, though I strongly suggest renting a car for the stay as well.
