“Top of the world experience”
Reviewed 10 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Our group, 4 couples of longtime friends, have travelled together many times. Villa Sea Glass proved the perfect setting for a brilliant vacation. We are all TripAdvisor users, and still managed to book this villa even though no reviews had been posted. We were so pleased that the villa more than lived up to the professional pictures posted.

We arranged transportation from the airport through the Villa's management company and the driver was waiting for us near baggage claim. Upon arrival at Sea Glass we were greeted by a member of the property management staff for a quick tour. Chilled wine, cold beer and a snack were part of the welcome. We had secured two cars to be delivered to the villa, and both cars were in the driveway. The car rental agent was on-site to take care of the paperwork, which included a temporary Antiguan driver's license ($20 US). A quick 5 minute drive to the Epicurian Market for provisions and we were all set. Arrival could not have been smoother!

Leading up to our trip, we found the owner, Stephanie, to be extremely attentive. Our questions were always answered immediately. Having rented many vacation homes, Stephanie provides a level of service that is rarely encountered.

Here is my list of PRO's and CON's for the property:

PRO's
- The location is ideal. Minutes from great beaches, restaurants and amenities. The view is
absolutely incredible.
- Everything in the villa is high quality. In particular, everyone in our group was thrilled with the
quality of the beds. There was no shortage of anything.
- Abundance of well maintained outdoor space. Stargazing at night was spectacular.

CON's
- Water pressure was poor. In two bedrooms it was insufficient for showering. The only real
downer we encountered all week.
- Only the bedrooms, not the bathrooms, are air conditioned. The A/C units do a fine job
knocking down the humidity, but don't expect to be chilly. One of the 4 bedrooms was a
poor performer.
- if you or your travel companions have difficulty with stairs or steep grades, this is not the
villa for you.

Villa Sea Glass is a high end property that is clearly owned by someone that cares about her guests' experience. We all felt we rented a fabulous home and not just an investment property. I have added a photo that illustrates the entrance to the gorgeous 4th bedroom. The 4th bedroom is not accessible through the main house.

The villa a terrific!

Hello Steve,

Thanks so much for taking the time to post this nice review. This is Stephanie, the owner of Villa Sea Glass, and I'm so happy you found Villa Sea Glass looked even better in person than in the photos! Turns out, my husband and I arrived for a 5 day trip to Sea Glass right after your stay. We try to get to Sea Glass at least 3 times a year as the "owner's eye" is always the keenest. You're right, we found the water pressure to be insufficient and to that end we had the shower heads acid washed and a new water pump and pressure system installed whilst on island. Now the issue is resolved.... good pressure restored! We also had two brand new AC's installed (the poor performer bed room and one next to it that we thought could be better too). In short, you were right..... we DEEPLY care about our guests' experience and intend to keep things humming!

While you were right to report that Sea Glass is accessible by stairs, we have had guests stay with knee problems in the past. The trick is that there is a driveway up to the back of the villa and this allows for one floor, no stair living (except for the stairs down to the pool or to the fourth bedroom which is, as you said, not accessible through the main house). I will be the first to warn future guests that the driveway up to the back of the house is narrow. We find our European guests have no issues driving up as they are used to driving in tight spaces. We drive up when we stay at Sea Glass, the trick is to drive slowly and in control. I hope to have you back at Sea Glass one day.... we aim for no cons at all! : )
