Amazing isn't a strong enough word
I had the best time here at the woodlands Grandview Villa. I actually wish I was still there. I found the property to be as described and it may have been more house than my friend and I needed but I was extremely comfortable with the lay out and amenities. My friend struggled a little with the heat because it is not airconditioned but I found the mountain breezes and the open louvered windows to be perfect. I don't go on vacation to sit inside and if I got hot in the afternoon I just went for a swim in the pool. The beds were comfortable and the linens were nice. I did enjoy being able to wash my clothes, having a washing machine was a huge bonus! The kitchen was stocked pretty well with pots pans and I was able to cook a few meals with out any trouble. The thing to remember is it isn't your kitchen and cooking in a vacation rental is NEVER going to be like cooking at home so don't plan on making super elaborate meals.
Getting groceries was an experience. I had read and understood that they would be somewhat limited in selection and of course price would be high, it's an island so you need to remember the cost of getting it there is going to make them pricey. In hindsight having a little better plan on what to buy might would have saved us a bit of money and made things easier. I personally liked Rams in Salem the best for stores to shop in, they are closed for a couple of hours during the day so plan accordingly. Ashook's in Brades was good too, they may have actually had more selection but it was tight quarters. They were super nice and helpful for sure and the take away Indian was mighty good eats.
I think eating out was almost cheaper than cooking for yourselves. We had excellent meals everywhere we tried. Pont's Beach bar had a very tasty Creole shrimp, Summer breeze was also a good lunch, the king fish I had was great, and if you just have to have a burger to satisfy your red meat needs, the burger my friend got at Hanks beach bar was good. We also had breakfast on Waffle Day at Hill Top Coffee, tasty tasty tasty! It was a really cool place too. The truth is everything taste better when you are in paradise.
We took a tour of Plymoth with Sun Lee. It was very informative and you can't go to Montserrat without going to the Volcano observatory and seeing Plymoth.
As for the beaches well it was just like the picture, paradise. In august we were the only people on the beach most of the time. The beach at little bay was great too and snorkeling
Beautiful property, ideally situated
Beautiful property. I was in Montserrat for work. contacted by Susan well before I travelled ensuring all was well ahead of my trip. The friendly management service helped ensure the stay was everything I hoped. fully recommend Montserrat and the property.
The property is in a great location - great views
Separate bedrooms all with en-suites is really good. Views over the Caribbean are great, The service manager, Ken, is very helpful even on a Sunday sorting out the gas. The pool is really good and very welcome on those full sun days. The local housekeeper and pool man are polite and helpful. A pity the kitchen doesn't have a dishwasher - I haven't washed up so much in ages. The WiFi is very fast with good connections meaning we can keep in touch with things back in the UK and listen to BBC radio! Useful information is included in a small 'welcome pack'. I would certainly recommend the house and Montserrat of course. It's our 3rd visit and folks are very friendly although the cost of living is quite high particularly compared to the UK I guess because everything is imported.
I was disappointed in condition of property upon arrival. I contacted property manager and he was responsive regarding the issues he could fix. However, pool was not usable upon arrival, housekeeping was below par, there were ants in one of bedrooms and this bedroom was unusable until after pest control company was called. Living room furniture is worn and one chair was broken and unusable.
Views from back porch are nice but beach is not as close as description led us to believe. I would not recommend this property until owner makes improvements.
We are glad that the property manager was responsive and able to assist you with any onsite concerns but do apologize that some of the property amenities fell short of your expectations. The listing has always advertised the exact distance to the ocean but we appreciate your feedback nonetheless. We have shared your comments with the homeowner and we will continue to work with them to ensure that every guest has a comfortable stay in their home. Thank you again for letting us know about your stay and we hope to travel with you again in the future.

Great location, extraordinary comfort.
Perfect spot. Roomy and comfortable, fantastic pool, well appointed all the way around. About 15 minutes drive from Little Bay, but only a few minutes walk to Woodlands Beach, one of the best beaches on the island. Quiet. The host was exceedingly helpful in arranging for transportation from the airport, and arranging for a hired car for the week. I'll be back!
One week in paradise
Our familiy (2 adults, 4 children: 5-6-12-17 years) spent a wonderful week in the Grandview vacation houses. The sandy beach is nearly 400 meters far from the house and no other people were there, so that we really relaxed and enjoyed. From the calm balcony you have a super view over the caribbean sea. The luxury villa is nice furnished an in the kitchen we missed nothing. Erery morning we had a wonderful breakfast on the long table und after that we started in the day. For buying an discovering the island you need a car.
We visited 6 beaches in our week and all the beaches were empty without people - it seemed to be in paradise !
The staff of the house (the local agent, which one picked us up from the airfield, the cleaners from the lovely swimming poll and from the house) were friendly and every time helpful. We have to say a bigger thank you to all and we are sure, that we will come back to this wonerful place.
