Lovely villa in a quiet location. It faces away from the sun which means it stays cool in the heat of Antigua. One of the best villas (and kitted out kitchen!) we have ever stayed in.
We stayed here for two weeks and cannot fault the villa; very well appointed and plenty of space for everyone. There were only four of us but it was clear that a much larger group would be very comfortable too. Wil is the manager and extremely helpful; recommended a fishing trip charter just down the road in English Harbour and we had a great morning and caught several large fish.
Would definitely recommend a car and suggest getting one with good suspension as the roads in Antigua are quite interesting! Ignore any online maps that suggest it's only 20 minutes to St Johns for example; pretty much everywhere is a good 40 minute drive (apart from small local supermarkets and English Harbour). In our experience the best supermarket is Epicurean, of which there are two; one in Jolly Harbour and one (bigger) in St Johns. Locally the small ones have very limited meat (frozen, mostly) and vegetables/salad.
There are several good beaches on the road to Jolly Harbour from the villa, notably Turners Beach (good food too), Darkwood Beach and Castaway Beach (also seems to be called South Beach). The latter is probably best for families with smaller children as the water is shallower; also you have to pass the supermarket so can combine the two in one trip...
We would love to return one day and would thoroughly recommend Willoughby Heights to anyone who wants a relaxing and laid back holiday.
The property is lovely and has a warm community feel. My family and I stayed there for a relaxing week that seemed not too interrupted by Hurricane Maria. The doors and windows closed tight and we didn't hear much noise in this very secure home.
Otherwise, the house is georgous and opening it to the trade winds came with welcoming our neighbors over as well who were so kind. The views from the balconies are breath taking and was a sight to behold every morning. All the bedrooms were well appointed and offered the comforts of home. Thank you for a great stay! I look forward to booking again.
We had a wonderful time at Willoughby. The terraces, pool, bay view and ultramodern villa were the setting for the most fabulous visit to Antigua. Even though the trade winds blew uncharacteristically hard for a couple of days the Heights gave us places to relax in the sun. Superb accommodation for any size of family group, I couldn't recommend it more highly.
