We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Montserrat and our stay in the villa of Gingerbread Hill. The accommodations were clean and lovely and the view was breathtaking! We could hardly pull ourselves away from the swing on the open air porch with the views of the carribean. Each night we watched the sunset, then the fireflies, then the stars and moon. The hosts of Gingerbread Hill are more than helpful and did everything they could to make our trip fantastic, including providing taxi service for a few evenings out where I was a little reluctant to drive on the narrow, steep roads. Some suggestions if you go: Definitely go on Sunny's island tour, it was amazing! We asked sooo many questions and Sunny was so knowledgable, as a matter of fact, the whole family seem to be historians of the Island and all things Montserrat. Do drop in to the new coffee house operated by the Leas, so chill and the baked goods are great. I recommend Woodlands beach, remote, rugged, beautiful and we went there 3 times and did not see another tourist - yes we had a gorgeous caribbean beach to ourselves. Food is a bit trickier. We enjoyed the roti cooked by John at the People's Place. We ate at Olveston House twice and agree with it's #1 rating on the island. If you get tired of the "usual" meal of chicken, rice, coleslaw - you can try Gourmet Gardens - we enjoyed a hamburger and rueben sandwich and then took home shephard's pie for dinner. The owner then sat with us and chatted for over an hour! All in all, a great place to go for friendly people and a relaxing time. David and Clover were so kind and helpful, we almost felt like family by the end of the week. Go, stay here, you won't regret it.
