Find Dickenson Bay Villas on FlipKey
 

My wife and I spent a week at this villa in late Jan of 2011. It exceeded our expectations in terms of location, comfort and conveniences. But the best part is the magnificent view of Dickenson Bay! Sunsets are inspiring. A Us-like grocery store is but a five minute drive, and it has everything you could possible want. The reasonably-priced, full-menued restaurant "Opus" is right across the street. Antigua itself is chock-full of beach, restaurant, entertainment, and sight-seeing options. And Trevor, the host, is a major asset for smooth check-in/check-out and tips about the island.

We'll definitely return.

My wife and I had a wonderful vacation at this villa. Sunset villa is very clean, comfortable, and within 5-7 min walk to the one of the best beaches on the island, Dickinson Bay. Trevor was great. He picked us up from the airport, helped us with shopping at the local supermarket, and was flawlessly available through the week. Oakland car rental was also very helpful. They delivered the car to the villa and then picked it up. We have driven to several beaches on the island, Hawksbill and Darkwood. Those beaches were wonderful but we still preferred to stay at Dickinson beach. Overall, totally agree with all the previous reviews, highly recommended.

    Thanks so much for your kind review. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay and that Trevor was able to be of assistance. We hope to see you on your next visit to Antigua!

We had a wonderful stay on antigua, and Dickenson Bay Sunset Villa was a great place to stay. The manager, Carol, kept in email contact with us prior to the trip and her prompt replies were very helpful. Trevor met us at the airport and pointed out various sights on our way to the villa, acquainted us with all of the villa's amenities, then took us to the grocery store. Trevor continued to check-in by phone with us during our stay, and he was so helpful and thoughtful. He made our stay so much easier. The accommodations were excellent--spacious and clean. It was so nice to have an ample supply of towels and linens and the use of a large washing machine. We did lots of cooking and the new grill was very nice. We also walked or drove to nearby restaurants. It was nice to have 3 sleeping areas with3 separate bathrooms. The largest bedroom with 2 double beds was very spacious and provided ample space for 3 of us. The views from the large porch were wonderful and we spent lots of time relaxing and enjoying bird watching. Those who wanted to watch TV could do so in the comfortable living room. We felt very safe here.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to write. We enjoyed having you here.

We spent 9 wonderful nights at Sunset Villa and 10 wonderful days on the beach and around Antigua in June 2010. We were collected at the airport and whisked away to the villa, only 15-20 minutes drive away. Carol had ensured the fridge was stocked with the basics of our choice prior to our arrival and Trevor, Carol's local help, called round, at a time that suited us, and took us to the local supermarket where we stocked up for the week. Trevor was a really excellent chap and helped out with all our requests, thank you Trevor. The villa was very clean, very comfortable and we really had a lovely stay. It was so much more fun and relaxing to have our own kitchen, lounge and dining room and enjoy our time exactly how we wanted. Bbq'ing on the deck watching the sunset was truly memorable. Other guests we met from the local resorts on the beach were amazed and a little green that we'd found somewhere so close to the beach, with so much space for such a really great price. If you want a great holiday location, in a spacious home from home environment, with one of the the best views on the island, and for a fraction of the cost of the routinely boring 'all-inclusive' then this is the place for you.

What an incredible time we had! Absolutely loved Antigua, especially the villa. The villa offers everything you need and more. Most importantly, the views of the caribbean ocean and sunsets from the villa were spectacular. I also can't say enough about Trevor. He was amazing and incredibly accommodating! He offered excellent advice on what to do on the island--from the best restaurants to things to do during the day, where to go for water activities and what taxi service to use (by the way, great recommendations of the restaurants Opus, Coconut Grove and the The Beach). Trevor was even able to take time out of his own schedule and show us around the island one night. Carol, you couldn't ask for a better person to manage your property. Thank you both so much for the wonderful memories!! And to the guys down at Tony's Watersports & Bar..."one love!" A vacation that will never be forgotten!
Sincerely, Rebekah & Peter May 2010

    Thanks for your kind words, Rebekah, it was our pleasure to have you.

A week at Sunset Villa is a week in paradise! My wife and I have visited about 15 islands in the caribbean and this tops them all. The villa is extremely spacious, comfortable, nice stereo to play reggae, and with two porches. We named the upper one "Tre House": it has unbeatable views of Dickenson Bay and always a gentle trade wind. Almost slept up there! Trevor is wonderful, helpful and interesting to talk with. Opus Restaurant is right across the street--so convenient and has great fish and fabulous pizza too. Dickenbson beach is 5 mins. walk down the hill and hosts two great beach bars--Tony's and Sneaky pete's. Peter, Dave and Eli are great hosts at Sneaky Pete's. All the watersports you could possibly want to try are right here, and you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas (strongly recommended for the potent sun). Carol has a real gem here and we strongly recommend you make it your home if you plan to visit Antigua. We miss it!

    Thanks Ted, you were great guests, come back soon!

This is the best place you could stay at on your Antiguan vacation! It's quiet and private with absolutely fantastic views. It's like home away from home, with all of the amenities you need to keep you and your kids entertained. A short walk gets you to a beautiful white sand beach with crystal clear water. Our host, Trevor, was the best - making sure that we were comfortable in our temporary home. My family and I had an awesome stay at Sunset, and we can't wait to go back. Leslie March 09

    Thanks Leslie, we look forward to having you back!

We stayed at the Sunset Villa for a week and had a fantastic time. Amazing view and very clean and well equipped accommodation. We were also very well looked after by the villa representative, Trevor, who met us at the airport and went out of his way to help us during out stay. I would definitely recommend it. Ed March 2009
