Woodlands, Montserrat
Min-y-Don is a privately owned villa in a secluded location perched on the cliff with breathtaking views of Redonda and Nevis across the Caribbean, as well as the Montserrat hills inland.
Situated at the end of a small road, the only sounds you will hear are from the sea and the wildlife - birds, tree-frogs and crickets. Set in a large mature garden with its own private 30 foot long tiled pool, this is the perfect location for complete rest and relaxation in the privacy of your own 'home'. Woodlands Beach, which you will usually have to yourself, is just 10 minutes walk away.
The whole house sleeps 6 and is set out on two levels with external stairs and separate entrances. The upper level is usually occupied by the owners from Nov - April, but downstairs self-contained apartment is available then, at much reduced rates. The mas...

Interaction with guests
Between mid November & mid April, the owners (1 couple) will be living upstairs but if you are interested in renting the downstairs only, the rent is US$125 /night for one couple sharing room (2 singles or 1 master), en suite shower room, WC. Private use of kitchen; pool; inside & outside sitting areas.
We would be around to meet you at airport, give suggestions for trips etc. but you would still need to hire your own car as we are off the beaten track! Many of the reviews are from couples who have stayed downstairs whilst we are upstairs.

I cant imagine a better place to stay in Montserrat! 180 degree ocean view from my spacious private apartment - lush exotic palm trees, fabulous pool, full kitchen, immaculate, comfy bedrooms and only a short stroll to a secluded beach. Owners are the perfect combination of friendly, knowledgable and respectful. An incredible value in the Caribbean! In fact I was...

We set out to find a peaceful, out-of-the-way, comfortable place to spend a week. Boy did we get it right! Peter and Sian are delightful hosts - we so enjoyed them and their home. We stayed in the apt. below with all the amenities (and some treats, too). We truly enjoyed melting into the serenity of sitting out on the...

It was really good to meet you both, share stories of various adventures and share some drinks and lovely food together. You were perfect guests! So glad you enjoyed it here, despite weather not being perfect... Sian & Peter

Min-y-Don offers the breathtaking view of the oceans, the sounds of crashing waves 24-7 and the songs of the tree frogs at night. You will find excellent sleeping accommodations; a nice kitchen and a super pool to take away all concerns. The hosts, Peter and Sian, are second to none. They looked after our every need with Q and A...

Management response:

Thank you! It was a pleasure having you both to stay with us & share this wonderful island.

About the neighbourhood
The location is fairly secluded, but with a few other residential homes within walking distance. You can walk to Woodlands Beach (about 10 minutes) but it is hilly. The beach has a shower, changing rooms & toilet, but no other amenities.
The house is right on the cliff, looking directly over the Caribbean Sea, providing magnificent views of the sunsets, which can be spectacular specially when you see the Green Flash as the sun disappears below the horizon.
Getting around
There are no other amenities or shops within walking distance, so a hire car is strongly recommended. There is ample parking on the property. You must get a local driving licence from the Police Station before driving - you must produce your driving licence from your own country & the fee is EC $ 50. Alternatively, there are buses which run fairly regularly on the main road throughout the daytime - the main road is up a hill from the house and is about 20 minute walk.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Montserrat: 9.7 km
Ferry: Little Bay: 9.7 km
To get to Montserrat, you have to travel via Antigua and then either get the ferry or the small plane (6 seater). Check the Fly Montserrat website. The ferry is not recommended in the winter as Montserrat has only a very basic port and the ferry cannot dock in high seas. Antigua airport is a challenge! Remember to pack essentials such as medication, toothbrush and swim wear in your hand luggage. We can help with car hire and airport pick-ups in Montserrat for you. We can also provide details of local tour guides for hiking, boating or driving tours.
