Description from owner


Min-y-Don is a privately owned villa in a secluded location perched on the cliff with breathtaking views of Redonda and Nevis across the Caribbean, as well as the Montserrat hills inland.

Situated at the end of a small road, the only sounds you will hear are from the sea and the wildlife - birds, tree-frogs and crickets. Set in a large mature garden with its own private 30 foot long tiled pool, this is the perfect location for complete rest and relaxation in the privacy of your own "home". Woodlands Beach, which you will usually have to yourself, is just 10 minutes walk away.

The whole house is set out on two levels with external stairs and separate entrances. The upper level is usually occupied by the owners from Nov - April, when we invite guests to stay downstairs. That means we are 'on-hand' to answer questions etc. but downstairs is completely self-contained. We will be around, but will respect your privacy.

Downstairs there is flexible accommodation: a double room (king size) with en suite shower room/WC. Plus 2 further single beds (one in studio /shared sitting area) with another bathroom, along with a full kitchen and sitting/dining areas inside & out.

We will provide airport transfers, and provide a light supper of home made bread & soup shopping for your arrival, all included in your rental cost. We can also advise on visits, restaurants etc. See reviews which include those from guests who have stayed in the downstairs apartment with the owners 'upstairs'.

Getting around

There are no other amenities or shops within walking distance, so a hire car is strongly recommended. There is ample parking on the property. You must get a local driving licence from the Police Station before driving - you must produce your driving licence from your own country & the fee is EC $ 50. We can help you with that. Alternatively, there are buses which run fairly regularly on the main road throughout the daytime - the main road is up a hill from the house and is about 20 minute walk.

Interaction with guest

Between mid November & mid April, the owners (1 couple) will be living upstairs but for downstairs only, the rent is US$125 /night for one couple sharing room (2 singles or 1 master), en suite shower room, WC. Private use of kitchen; pool; inside & outside sitting areas. We would be around to meet you at airport, give suggestions for trips etc. but you would still need to hire your own car as we are off the beaten track! Many of the reviews are from couples who have stayed downstairs whilst we are upstairs.


This rental can only be paid for online through FlipKey using your credit/debit card or PayPal (never by bank or wire transfer).
