Everything we hoped for!
We wanted a hidden gem of a cottage for our Caribbean getaway. "Birds and Bees" cottage provided everything we had hoped for; Caribbean Charm, privacy, romance, and views. This cottage is immaculately maintained and has all of the modern conveniences in a compact package. We know Antigua very well so were very comfortable doing our own provisioning and cooking. Most days we were out and about on the island but we also enjoyed just hanging out in the cottage enjoying the views and enjoying the swimming pool. Janie and Geoff were wonderful hosts and (surprise) unbeknownst to us were friends of friends of ours. We will be back.
Amazing week at Birds & Bees
Private and tranquil. Exactly as described and pictured. Janie is lovely! I arrived to a fridge full of breakfast items for the week and a bottle of rum. She was always making sure I didn’t need anything- but never intrusive. Her 50 year history in the community here is amazing to me. She made great recommendations and invited me on a trip in her boat to swim and snorkel. So fun! If you enjoy self catering, peaceful surroundings, like to explore-
This is your place. Full kitchen- everything you need. There’s plenty of places near for dinner, even in off season- so you don’t have to cook. Fans and trade winds- no need for AC.
I love sitting on the covered lanai every morning and evening watching the birds with the incredible view of the valley and harbour. A nice dip in the pool at the end of the day.
If you are looking for a hotel, 24/7 AC, don’t like living open to nature, then a hotel may be a better option for you.
If you’re easy going, want to experience Antigua like a local, have amazing views and rent from good people, this is your place.
Thank you for your lovely comments! You were a great guest, easy, relaxed and friendly! We really hope to see you here again, perhaps with your daughter?
Janie & Geoffrey
I was hoping for a nice stay but instead had the best stay I could imagine.
Janie is a amazing lady. When you walk through the gate you see the hidden treasure is not in the water but on the hillside. The cottage is so comforting you don't want to leave. I would feed the birds every morning. Then eat my breakfast want watch the birds with the breathtaking view in the background. Resorts are nice but this is the most private hidden beauty anyone could ever ask for. The companionship of man's best friend was lovely also. They would stop in to say hi and enjoy a nice rub. The location is wonderful also. A short drive and you have everything you need from enjoying the history of Antigua or the restaurants overlooking English Harbour.
I am so happy you enjoyed your holiday at Birds & Bees Cottage, you were so quiet, we hardly knew you were there! Now we know you were watching the birds. They are a joy that make my mornings too!
We hope to see you again here sometime in the future.
We absolutely loved our stay at Janie's cottage. The open setting with beautiful views of English harbor was even more luxurious than the pictures do justice. Janie is also very knowledgeable of things to do in the area and helped us get not only s rental car but transportation to the airport . We were able to do rendezvous beach, half moon bay, galleon beach , pigeon beach ,Falmouth and English harbours and St. John's all from her location with ease. The cottage itself is immaculate and has everything you need to stay in and enjoy the views or venture on your own. We will most certainly be doing business with her again!
Home from the tropical dreams
I should admit that the reality exceeded our expectations as it was our first experience to stay in such close to nature format. When we arrived, we were really tired by long trip but Janie greeted us so warm as good friends which helped us to relax and to get closer to the secluded and absolutely fantastic atmosphere of this home.
The open space of the living room and kitchen was very cozy, the kitchen had everything we needed and Janie provided welcome package which helped us a lot as we were too exhausted to go out for shopping. The open windows: we were worrying a bit about this aspect before our arrival as it implied to be something new for us. As it turned out this was a real gift as we could hear the birds sounds, cycads and breath the pure air during and feel the fresh breeze the nights in contrast of noisy AC systems in the hotels. We have never felt as comfortable as there (now when we’re home with our cold springtime with closed windows we really miss this).
The view on the Falmouth Harbour from veranda is like you get into some post card – it’s simply unreal, the beautiful garden around home creates very private and secluded atmosphere, the home itself is remoted from the neighbors which makes impression of peaceful and quiet oasis but all restaurants and shops are very nearby (about 5 mins by car).
Thank you so much Janie and Geoffrey for the wonderful time we spent in your cottage for you support and hospitality which made our stay very comfortable and unforgettable.
Dima and Nata
It was a delight to meet our first Ukrainian guests and we were honored you chose us after such a long journey!
We are so happy you enjoyed Antigua and hope that one day you might come back for a longer stay - more time to get over the jet lag!
What Holidays should always be!
An enchanting environment, views to die and air conditioning supplied by the breeze.
If you can drag yourself away from the refreshing pool all the facilities of Falmouth and English Harbours are nearby and many of the islands best beaches within 30 minutes drive.
Not for 5 star 'all inclusives' but an authentic Caribbean experience with comfortable bedroom, adequate facilities and a living area opening onto a generous veranda where you can be fascinated by the antics of some very precocious birds.
Thank you for your kind comments. It is always a real pleasure to have people like you to stay who appreciate our little piece of heaven!
Do hope to see you here again soon.
Kind regards, Janie
