“A+ in Hospitality”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at Miles Away in January 2014 for just over a week. Sharmaine and Nigel really made us feel at home. We stayed in the Cane Room, which was larger than we expected. We enjoyed sitting out on our private patio in the mornings and evenings, and there is a small picnic table close to the room which we used several times when having coffee or morning breakfast. Nigel picked us up at the airport and arranged take-away from the People's Place (excellent food!), and Sharmaine arranged a rental car for us. Sharmaine welcomed us upon arrival to Miles Away and gave us the grand tour of the property, which has a pool and two very large patios with gorgeous views of the volcano and sunsets over the water. One thing that I really appreciated was that the rooms were cleaned and straightened daily, which is a feature not available at other Guesthouses on the island. We travel light, so having laundry service was a plus. There's also a short hiking trail right on their property that goes down to a stream and a rock beach. It was a short walk, and the view was amazing! Another thing we noticed was that Sharmaine and Nigel are constantly improving the property. In the short time that we were there, they began the addition of one more guest room and they installed heating for the pool. They were excellent hosts, always available for advice/tips/discussion, but never intrusive. My one regret is that we didn't take them up on their offer to join them on Friday evening to check out some of the local spots... Our dinner plans fell through that night, and I'm sure we would have had more fun if we had joined them.

Room Tip: The Cane Room has an extra louvered window that creates gentle cross-breezes and keeps the room cool...

Very peaceful and quiet. Private patio, bathrooms and nice little kitchen were my favorite part. Great views, pool and very friendly puppy named Ella. River walking path to the sea so you can walk about 50 feet to the sea Five star. Will be back

The room I stayed in was very nice, clean, comfortable and up to date. It stayed a nice temperature because it was on the lower level and shaded from the sun. The location is very quiet with great views. Anything that I needed during my stay, Sharmaine was able to help me with. She is a great host! The pool was great to lounge in and the grounds of the villa are very well kept. I will definitely be staying here again when I am able to go back!

This is a great location, at the end of a road, no traffic noise and beautiful views. We stayed in the Lime poolside suite, which was great - microwave, fridge, basic flatware, etc. We saw the other rooms that she has recently added and they are very nice as well. The breezes are fantastic and her pool and surrounding sitting areas are wonderful. She had great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Only downside (for us) is that much of the island, including this location, isn't very walkable, so a car is definitely needed. But she dropped it at the airport for us so we could just get in and drive to the guest house.

Thank you for a wonderful week!

Miles Away has a beautiful breeze every night and a very chill atmosphere. We stayed for 9 days in September when practically the whole Island was empty of tourist. We did not meet Sharmaine but Roy took good care in making sure we were ok. No one else was there and it was very beautiful and peaceful. Make sure you get a car it is a bit of a hike to anything and all uphill. Miles away arranged the car and it was great meeting us right at airport. Being from Chicago this place was so nice because the nights are so wonderful void of city lights.
Check out The Attic up the road for very nice food and people(yes you could walk there)
Check out the boat cruise to Plymouth from Little bay
Check out Jack boy on other side of Island for a crazy adventure and breath taking scenes(see my jack boy review)
Check out the restaurant to the left of the Green Monkey(thru the plants) in Little Bay and say hi to John(great place for Dinner or Sunday Barbeque
Drive to Richmond Hill near Plymouth and view the volcano from there( they will let you through
to a point at Richmond hill road
Little Bay is best beach because the water is calm
You will love Montserrat being at Miles Away because it quite and nice with Wifi and everything you may need.
Bring lots of cash no one really takes CC
There is a good bank with ATM
Be nice to the frogs at night and hang out at the pool with the nightly breezes. If you dont like crowds in Montserrat or Miles away for sure go in late September and anytime in October

We stayed here our perfect choice after staying at Olverston House where my husband was put up by the government in his work capacity. Chose Miles Away as it looked great from the internet and to be honest it is far better than the web site shows and exceeded our expectations - absolutely brilliant !! Sharmaine the owner is super you couldn't get a better host - read more !

The Accommodation and complex- superb we had a lovely Kitchenette with a nice veranda.As in all tropical places a good idea is to spray with bugs stuff or you will be bitten by ants and mosquitoes.I wore my husbands socks at night a good idea so nothing can bite you.Not sexy, I know but sensible if it is dark.No one else was staying here which was great so 5 rooms unoccupied .The Pool is brilliant and you can have a great swim.Our room had good air con plus a ceiling fan plus a huge shower.There is a steep path down through the jungle to a rocky shore wear sensible shoes not flip flops.You have to hire a car if you eat out as it is too far, too steep and too hot to walk and the local supermarket Rams is excellent. Had the most wonderful prawns best ever in the world.Our little kitchen was very well equipped and the fridge worked very well.It even had a little freeze box.

At Night - Hear the tree frogs yes they are frogs and if you stay up see different sorts of frogs on the lawn.We saw loads of geckos - brilliant green colours.This place is like the jungle very green but with security lights that come on when you move but you don't need them.Saw Bats at night and a beautiful night sky with wonderful stars.( no light pollution)

Our Host-Sharmaine and her partner were the most fab people I have met.She took us out to local bars and my hubbie got some of the local goats water a stew frozen which he loved the next day when I heated it up on our hob.She always had a chat and as we were the same age group got on brilliantly.She brought some local bananas and fruit for us - so sweet-

Miles Away is my idea of perfect accommodation when on business in the Caribbean. It's very relaxing, the rooms are comfy and have all you need. Sharmaine, the owner, makes you feel totally at home and nothing is too much to ask. It has a great pool, wifi, the meals are excellent and the rooms have a fridge (stocked), microwave, AC, cable TV and great showers.

I would recommend Miles Away to anyone visiting Montserrat for business or vacation.

Room Tip: Don't forget your swim costume.

'Home away from home.' The suites have an air-conditioned bedroom with king/queen sized or twin beds. For natural cross breeze ventilation, switch off the a/c and open the screened louvered window.

At night, lie back, be seduced by the sight of the moon shining through the palms, and enjoy nature's music: the song of the frogs, the sound of waves lapping on the shore, the river and the trade winds rustling through the foliage. ... more   less
