Amazing ocean views, very comfortable accommodation, great location.
No photo could do this place justice.
Very friendly and helpful owners.
A very enjoyable stay, we loved it.
A lovely villa, well-furnished and well-equipped, comfortable, and with stunning views from wrap-round balcony, where we spent a lot of time. No air-conditioning, just ceiling fans, which suited us very well, and the cooler breezes at night were lovely. Well positioned up a hillside overlooking Galleon Beach, easy walking although quite a few steps up to the villa - but they are well lit for night-time, and plenty of shady spots to rest at during the day. We liked having a bit of altitude, above beach level. The owners, Shonnie and Michael, were very hospitable, friendly and helpful in every way, advising us on things to do, and booking taxis and restaurants etc for us. Good WiFi. Although photos show close proximity to neighbouring villa, they are actually quite separate and very private. We loved our stay there!
I can't say enough about the Blue Moon villa. The villa itself is fully equipped, wonderfully decorated, and perfectly placed for excellent views of the ocean and sunsets. Galleon Beach is perfect for relaxing in the sun and for snorkeling. Sea turtles and tropical fish abound!! And our hosts, Shonnie and Mike, were simply the best, helping with advice and reservations that made our entire visit a dream. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Antigua, and I know we will be back!
I saw a movie last night that was situated on the Caribbean island and it made me think of my last trip to Blue Moon Antigua. I want to go back to this perfect location, with such unique combination of place, people and peace. So easy to get to, yet so wonderful to escape to. Can't wait to get back and sit on the beach or on the deck.
My daughters and I spent 12 wonderful days at the Blue Moon Villa of Shonnie and Michael. The house was absolutely perfect for a holiday in paradise looking out on the magnificent Galleon bay where we snorkeled every day and saw sea turtles, sting rays and dozens of other wonderfully colored fish, cuddle fish, sea urchins, sponges, corals. It is also the perfect starting points for hikes up to Shirley Heights with its fabulous views and for trips to English harbour and Nelson's dockyard either walking, driving, rowing or with the boat taxi. Shonnie and Michael's hospitality and kindness made us feel really at home. We feel fortunate to consider them our friends now and were very sad to leave!
Blue Moon sits above a fantastic view of English Harbour from where you can view truly fabulous yachts arriving and departing. We stayed over Christmas and had a great time. The villa has all facilities, and it's rather fine having an open-air (private) shower!. The villa has all kitchen facilities and Wifi, TV, internet radio. Shonnie and Michael are brilliant hosts. They have an apparently limitless knowledge of the island and can recommend local restaurants (some reachable by free boat!)
We recommend hiring a car if you want to see more of the island (which is worth doing), although taxis are available for the occasional days out. That is, if you prefer to stay on the perfect local Galleon Beach which has a beach bar and is great for snorkelling.
Blue Moon villas are great!
Antigua was an amazing place to visit and Blue Moon villa was a home away from home! We were so comfortable there! Shonnie and Micheal were such gracious hosts, helping us find a car, fabulous restaurants, beaches and even offering to stock our fridge upon arrival of which we were so thankful. The snorkeling, kayaking and hiking were steps (literally!) from their property and the view was spectacular! We enjoyed watching the boats come and go from our perch every day. This was an experience that we will certainly treasure.
