Just what we wanted!
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing, romantic getaway to celebrate out 25th wedding anniversary. Birds and Bees was everything we hoped it would be and more. Serene, peaceful cottage with beautiful foliage and flowers and fantastic views. We rented a 4-wheel vehicle for the week (car rental a must at this location - use Titi as recommended by owner) so we could explore the island. Rendezvous Beach quite a bumpy and almost scary experience to drive (husband lived the off-roading) but well worth it. Secluded, beautiful beach with good snorkeling.
The owners were on hand to answer questions and provide recommendations but very unobtrusive. Many attentions to detail including providing a cell phone for local calls, a cooler we packed lunches in for our excursions and even thick comfy robes.
My only complaint is that we can't stay longer.
Thank you for your kind review. I am so happy you enjoyed your holiday with us and hope perhaps we might see you here again one day.
Wonderful stay at Falmouth Harbour!
It was lovely to stay at Janice’s place during our stay in Antigua. The cottage was better than shown on the pictures. Janice was very kind to welcome us on our arrival and provided us with a bottle of prosseco as it was our honeymoon trip. We had the pool for our exclusive use and it was great to use it in the morning or after a long hot day at the beach. The property was very clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this place to other travellers. Thank you Janice and Geoffrey! :))
Thank you for choosing to spend your honeymoon at Birds & Bees Cottage. It was lovely to meet you both and thank you for the delicious chocolates! I had to hide them from Geoffrey!
We just got back from a week’s stay at Birds and Bees and our only wish is that we could have stayed longer. This place is nothing less than amazing! It’s the prettiest vacation rental we ever stayed in and the attention to detail and hospitality was on a whole other level. Janie and Geoffrey are incredible hosts that made sure we had a great vacation. From setting up an extra bed for our 3 year old daughter, providing basic provisions, a bottle of rum, beach towels and chairs and loads of good recommendations for beaches and things to do and see. Janie even invited us to join a yoga class on her veranda. We loved being surrounded by the tropical garden and visited by the four legged and winged local residents including brightly colored hummingbirds and even a tortoise that walked up to us one afternoon on the lawn and delighted our daughter.
The pool is beautiful and our daughter loved swimming in it so much that it took some great deal of convincing to persuade her every day to leave it and go exploring one of the numerous gorgeous beaches the island is blessed with. Thank you Janie and Geoffrey for a perfect vacation, we can’t wait to return!
It was a real pleasure to have your lovely family to stay. I am so happy you enjoyed Birds & Bees Cottage and hope that you will return one day.
No one should ask for more of you are looking for the perfect intimate private rental Antiguan accommodation experience. Birds and Bees Cottage has all you need in a delightful mix of old Caribbean architecture and New England decor. Every modern facility is available in a property which is more spacious than some of the booking site photos suggest. The arched windows and verandah doors opened up in the daytime ensure delightful trade wind breezes refresh the house continuously - air con is irrelevant. As ever in Antigua outside living on the verandah is the norm and the verandah in B&B Cottage is the place with its views over the wonderful garden towards magnificent Falmouth Harbour. The bird feeder nearby ensures the regular arrival of the most beautiful Hummingbirds within feet of you as well as other species. The private pool while only a few steps away is large and in a superb setting and has a wonderful gazebo to shelter from the sun when required. We have been to Antigua many times in the last 10 years and sampled a variety of excellent rental and hotel accommodation and this place is at the top for us. It’s far enough away from the main activity areas in Falmouth and English harbours to feel quiet and secluded but not in reality when you need to go shopping for provisions nearby or access the restaurants, bars and fabulous beaches but a short distance away. Cloggys our favourite sports bar and restaurant nestling in the Yacht Club Marina is a must for anyone visiting. Our favourite beach anywhere is Rendezvous Bay but a mile away on the road from the Cottage. Who could ask for more? But make sure you rent a 4x4 to get easily to these remoter spots. Janie and Geoffrey were delightful hosts and a pleasure to meet. Nothing was too difficult albeit we needed little other than was already in place. If you are a twosome and need both a retreat but also the convenience of one of the best holiday locations on Antigua... we heartily recommend Birds and Bees Cottage - Amazing Value.
Thank you for your glowing review. I am so happy you enjoyed Birds & Bees Cottage. It was a pleasure to have met you both and will look forward to seeing you again here.
Perfect resort alternative
We just came back from a lovely stay at Birds & Bees Cottage. Janie is a wonderful host who had us very well stocked upon our arrival - things like coffee, milk, fruit, granola, bread, butter, bottled water and a bottle of rum! All were much appreciated after a long day of travel. It was nice not to feel rushed to drop our bags and grocery shop. She also gave us beach towels whenever we needed them and had a couple of beach chairs as well. We loved the open air living - open doors and windows, the fantastic breeze, the hammock, and birds popping in and out for a quick visit. True island living! The kitchen is very well equipped with all the tools, dishes and supplies you need. The pool and lounging area is a great option with a beautiful view of the harbor. Janie gave us great insight into local events, restaurant and beach recommendations, and other things to do on the island. This is a perfect place for those who don't want the resort option and we can't wait to come back! We already miss the cool breeze and watching the birds and hummingbirds on the porch. Thanks, Janie, for the wonderful accommodations!
We stayed at Springhill (Birds & Bees) for two weeks and totally loved our holiday. The venue is truly unique, spotlessly clean and has all the facilities you could need for a tropical break. The gorgeous cottage sits within the grounds of the owners property in a beautifully kept garden. Whilst the owners property is quite near, the lush vegetation and positioning ensures complete privacy. Having said that the owners are delightful and couldn’t be more helpful in pointing you in the right direction for the right beach or restaurant and for insights into island life.
The property is in a great location at the south of the island near to Falmouth and English Harbour so it’s close to lots of facilities such as restaurants, beaches and places of interest.
A car is essential but the owners of the villa are very helpful at providing good local car hire company names. Plus having a car means that you actually get out and about to see the real island rather than being closed up behind the gates of an exclusive hotel.
Our typical day involved breakfast on the veranda with the humming birds and friendly lizard followed by a visit to the beach (normally pigeon point beach), lunch at the beach, late afternoon by the pool and an evening dinner either at the villa or at a local restaurant.
There are four friendly dogs that pop by for regular visits and quickly become part of the family (only if you want them to - we did)!
We felt very sad to leave and would definitely like to be back!
