Galley Bay Cottages are four charming Caribbean cottages and a mediterranean style Villa located hillside, just steps from the beautiful white sands of Galley Bay beach on the northwest coast of Antigua. Built into the natural landscape of the hill, winding stone paths and steps lead through the property and take you to each of the four gorgeously secluded cottages. Wooden gingerbread cottages each with an ocean view, cool breezes and open layouts allow you to experience a uniquely Caribbean vacation.The shabby chic colonial interiors have been indiviudally decorated and furnished with an eclectic mix of European antiques, renovated finds and Caribbean art. Wonderful details like locally fired and hand painted tiles and face basins, four poster beds and wooden painted shutters are a delight for your eyes daily. Each unit is self contained with a fully equipped kitchen and all have amazing sea views, with private galleries perfect for relaxing day and night. Watch cruiseships entering and leaving St. John's Harbour and catch stunning sunsets while enjoying drinks and dinner al fresco.

Dear Petrina Thank you for the review and your suggestions to the future guests are very accurate . I hope I will see you gain soon. Galley Bay is peaceful and secluded rural area, renting a vehicle would be very helpful however for the guests that don't feel comfortable driving in a foreign country I can provide tho pick the up at the arrivals and do shopping on the way to Galley Bay , the bus stop is 10min walk from the cottages and taxis are available.

Are there any places to eat that are in walking distance? Thanks ann
in the nearby village called five islands ( 10 min walk ) there is a small cafe and a grill bar where you can get local food , chicken fish and lobsters . on Fridays and Saturdays people prepare and sell local dishes that are very tasty . The all inclusive resort Galley Bay offers a dinner pass to the restaurant : includes drinks and a la carte menu, it is pricey though...
