“Great vacation rental, ideal for those looking for a quiet holiday.”

We stayed at Turtleview for a week and enjoyed it immensely. The house is lovely, with an open floor plan, great sliding glass doors that let in the breeze and allow for the most amazing view while you relax on the sofa or play games at the inside table. There is also an outdoor eating area next to the pool, a fully equipped kitchen that will make you want to eat-in, and a pool/deck area that begs you to relax as long as the sun is up.

If you're looking for lots of nightlife and partying, unless you BYOB, this is not the area to stay in. But if you are on holiday to relax and unwind, the privacy of this home is worth it. If you are looking for some nightlife, once you get used to driving on the roads, English Harbor is a doable distance for dinner and drinks. Stingray City is only 10 minutes from the house and was lots of fun. Long Bay was the best beach we found for snorkeling (about 15 minutes) and Half Moon Bay was the prettiest beach I've ever seen (~20 mins from house). We were very pleased with the location of the house, but we rented a car and could get around the island with ease. Anyone not renting a car would probably want to stay closer to a "bigger" city (none are huge in Antigua). If you are looking for something fun to do, we went on the Antigua Adventures Eco tour and loved it. Its not party oriented and was great for a family outing.

Other things: The house provides plenty of towels, which is great because who wants to pack a suitcase full of towels? The road to the house is like all other roads in Antigua, it has some ruts, but we had a Toyota Corolla and did just fine. Devil's Arch is nearby and definitely worth an outing.

If you really want to feel "at home" away from home, Turtleview is a great choice.

We are so glad you enjoyed the peace of the Peninsula. We know its so hard to convey it to our guests but once they arrive they see just how beautiful it is. Peace is difficult to describe. Thank you so much for your review.

My wife and I stayed at Turtle View in May of 2011 for our honeymoon. We chose Turtle view based on the photos, and we were not disappointed. The house is in a great location, we felt like we were the only two people for miles, despite having neighbors on either side. The pool and patio offered a great view and a great spot to relax and soak up some sun.

The drive into town, or anywhere on the island for that matter, was short, and it was easy enough to find your way around. Our rental included use of a cell phone that had lots of local numbers already programmed into it, which was great for making sure places were open. Most restaurants on the island closed by 8 or so, so make sure you don't leave dinner too late in the day. If you want to stay in to cook instead there's plenty of roadside stands with fresh food, or a supermarket if you want something more familiar. Turtle Views kitchen was clean and fully equipped, with a great outdoor dinning area and bbq as well.

The house offers plenty of space to families with children as well, the second bedroom is downstairs, and overall the place is easily large enough to accommodate a family with 2 children and still ensure everyone has plenty of space.

This was the first time my wife and I have stepped away from the All-Inclusive's to do a vacation at our own pace, and I could never go back to staying at resorts after an experience as great as this. A fantastic stay at a beautiful location.
