“Our Heavenly Honeymoon”
This supremely comfortable and relaxing house on unspoilt Montserrat was the ideal honeymoon location. After marrying in the depths of a Great British Winter, arriving on this warm, fragrant island in a tiny plane, just as the sun was setting, was absolutely magical. As for the view from the veranda, it took our breath away. Don't expect to find a throbbing metropolis, a lively club scene, shopping malls or water parks. Montserrat could be twinned with Father Ted's Craggy Island. There are no ugly, slab-sided hotels, no jumbo jets disgorging hundreds of tourists, no monstrous cruise ships dwarfing Woodlands Beach. Staying at Min-y-Don couldn't be further from the all-inclusive resort style of Caribbean holiday. The house is a second home - well equipped and much loved. It's tempting to stay there all day, lounging by the pool, gazing out towards Redonda and Nevis, listening to the crash of the waves below, watching iguanas sunning themselves on the lawn, pelicans and frigate birds soaring past, hummingbirds dipping delicately into the hibiscus. If you can tear yourself away, there are some charming places to eat locally, and we also enjoyed the adventure of foraging for ingredients in the local shops and cooking meals to eat on the veranda. The internet was used to check the hideous weather at home - airports closed due to snow etc - and gloat, but otherwise we were so chilled we weren't tempted to use it. Mount Soufriere, Montserrat's volcano, was very lively indeed during our stay - it has been peaceful since a partial dome collapse the month after our visit - which added to the sense of adventure. It was an extraordinary privilege to witness phenomena that most people rarely if ever see. We will never forget our honeymoon on Montserrat. I have an enduring memory of sipping gin and tonic on the deck and seeing the elusive 'green flash' as the sun sank below the horizon, knowing that nothing could be more perfect.
Response from the owner 'Heavenly Honeymoon' - what a lovely description and we are so happy you enjoyed being there
“a romantic retreat”
This is a perfect getaway. The house has every amenity, is spacious and welcoming and is in a really lovely location, perched on the edge of a cliff. It is heavenly going to sleep to the sound of the sea and the tree frogs.
Response from the owner Those sounds are certainly much preferred to normal urban noises!
Having stayed at Min-Y-Don several times now (and on my way back this month) I can sincerley and without hesitation recommend the villa to anyone or indedd any family looking for a truly relaxing Carribean experience. The villa is in a wonderful location perched on a cliff overlooking and overhearing the azure Carribean sea below. The house is well appointed and very comfortable offering privacy as well as a great sun-downer terrace for all to gather in the late afternoon/early evening. Wishing all who visit a wonderfull relaxing stay.
Response from the owner We look forward to welcoming you back again.
“Cliffside, direct oceanfront — a magical place...”
Min-y-Don is the perfect place to experience the island of Montserrat. Very private, comfortable and well stocked, with beautiful gardens and a lovely pool, it is upscale without being formal. Best of all, it has an absolutely stunning view from its perch a few feet from the edge of the cliff above the ocean. Sitting on the wide verandas (there are two plus a separate deck), you'll feel like you are on your private stateroom balcony on an oceanliner going someplace wonderful. The fabulous daytime views are replaced at night by the moon reflected across the water like a shimmering silver carpet with the occasional brilliantly lit ship passing along the horizon, and a million stars scattered overhead across the sky. Don't miss this place. I've traveled all over the world and my stay at Min-y-Don is one of my fondest memories.
Response from the owner Full moon last night was fantastic, even though it was so bright it woke me at 4am.. I could walk around without putting any lights on and I saw the glorious sight of its reflection in the sea.
We had high expectations of this holiday and we were not disappointed! The villa and Montserrat were all we could want and more besides. We visited with 2 teenage children and there was something for all of us there. Personally I would have been happy to have spent the fortnight at the villa enjoying the pool and the veranda. But we also enjoyed the nearby beach and the rest of the island - not least because of the fantastic hospitality shown by the locals. A boat trip around the island and a hike up into the hills were amongst our more exciting experiences. We have been fortunate enough to stay in some very luxurious villas around the world, but I think this beats them all in terms of location. The villa is in a very private location with absolutely stunning views across the sea and equally spectacular sunsets. Would have loved to have stayed for longer - my daughter and I both cried when it was time to leave!!
Response from the owner Hope you can return one day - did you drink the water at Runaway Ghaut? Legend has it that will ensure you return.
This is the best place I have ever stayed at in the Caribbean. The house is beautiful, very well appointed and private There is a fabulous quiet beach a short walk away. I wish I was back on the terrace right now watching the sun set over the sea.
Response from the owner Close your eyes, imagine the warmth of the air & the sound of the sea and you can be back there (in your mind anyway).
