We're in Villa Search Hell at the moment -- so much to chose from. Until last night, we were all pretty sure we were going to St John, until we saw a spectacular-looking villa over looking Falmouth Harbour and now we're re-thinking.
So, I need some advice...
We are two families. We are bringing our 19 y-o daughter and our friends have a 15 y-o daughter and a 16 y-o son and his permanently attached X-Box. We've been to St John before and know what to expect and had our beach trips all well planned. This new development has thrown us for a loop. We don't know anything about Antigua but, man, that house looks great!
We usually like to get out and spend the day at the beach until mid-afternoon and then head back to the house, lounge by the pool and get the cocktails going. We usually stock up with groceries and cook for ourselves for the week with maybe 1-2 restaurant visits. We like to snorkel -- we're not divers -- swim and generally relax. How would that pattern fit with a home at Falmouth Harbour? Is the south side of the island well-off for beaches or would we need to travel? We'd be looking to get around the island anyway but it also looks a lot larger than St John. Would a lot of time be spent in the car each day? How is Falmouth Harbour for nightlife? We're not clubbers ourselves by my 19 year-old might be tearing her hair out after two weeks confinement to barracks each evening.
Finally, we'd be in Antigua for the end of July/beginning of August. How is the climate at that time of year?
Any advice will be gratefully received.
