Peter Jackson purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Peter Jackson chose FreeTown
The location and views are stunning with refreshing trade winds much of the year. The property is well designed and constructed embracing many traditional Caribbean features. The lovely beach is a only 100 metres away. The bay offers some of the best small boat and kite/wind surfing conditions in the Caribbean. The resort is gated, safe, secure and well managed.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our luxury apartment offers spacious 'home-like' accommodation within a first class resort. The large infinity pool immediately in front of the apartment is very convenient particularly for families. Superb panoramic views of the bay are available whilst enjoying breakfast on the balcony. Its only a 40 second walk to the beach. The gated 5 star resort offers total privacy and safety.

Thank you very much, we truly enjoyed our stay. From waking up to a wonderful Caribbean breeze, to breakfast on the balcony, to chill siesta in the afternoon, it was perfect. Baby truly enjoyed running around and discovering all the island can offer. Great Condo, well equipped kitchen, overall wonderful. Thank you!
Perfect set up for our family.
This is our second time staying at Peters place. It’s perfect for us. Peaceful, beautiful, friendly and relaxing. We’ll be back.
Lovely property in a beautiful location.
Beautiful, clean and spacious apartment. Our family of four had a wonderful vacation while staying here. The view of the bay from the large balcony is tremendous. The staff at the resort is very friendly and helpful. Took the boat from the dock to snorkel on Green Island. Half Moon Bay and other beaches nearby. Highly recommend!
Wonderful Family Holiday
We had a wonderful family holiday at Pete's apartment, in a perfect location. The views were stunning, the apartment was very well equipped and didn't lack anything. It was very spacious and tastefully decorated. The kids enjoyed the easy access to the swimming pools and beach, as well as the additional services the hotel offered. Adele's cooking was delicious and other highlights included a day trip to Half Moon Bay and a boat trip organised via the hotel to Green Island.
Wonderful Home Base to Explore Antigua
We enjoyed our 2 week stay (Jan/Feb) in Peter's apartment and explored much of Antigua as we had rented a Jeep for the entire duration. Antigua is our favorite Caribbean island to date! We made friends instantly, everywhere we went. We felt so welcomed nearly everywhere. We met the head chef at Catherine's and ended up eating or grabbing drinks there several times, including our last night. We also met and talked with the owner at Club Sushi and had wonderful sushi there a few times. Our favorite spot was Half Moon Bay and Beach Bum's where we ate lunch a few times, and really enjoyed the food and staff there. Other places we ate were Trappas, Cloggys, OJs, Ana's, Dennis, Sheer Rocks, and Mama Pasta.
Beaches we visited outside the resort: Half Moon Bay, Pigeon Point Beach, Long Bay, Turner's Beach, Ffryes Beach, Love Beach, Coco Beach, Dickenson Beach, and Green Island. Our favorite was Half Moon Bay but they all had very good qualities and some differences to them that made them all unique and enjoyable. We had Green Island to ourselves for a few hours one day and that was awesome too.
We really enjoyed the apartment and we would definitely consider renting it again if/when we visit Antigua. We liked the "quietness" of Nonsuch Bay resort. We didn't feel it was too far away from anything and loved waking up and having breakfast on the terrace with the amazing views. We otherwise didn't spend too much time at the resort other than maybe 4 days total, which included Green Island one day and Stand-Up-Paddleboard downwind from Green Island one day.
We were glad to have towels, chairs and an umbrella to use from the apartment and we packed them and our own small soft sided cooler every day to take to the beaches.
Overall a great experience!
Beautiful property, but a few issues on our stay
First of all, a beautiful development and apartment. Nice view overlooking Nonsuch Bay, and easy access to 3 nice pools. And Peter the owner was very responsive and helpful from the time of booking through our stay.
The beaches on the property, and all nearby beaches (Half Moon Bay, etc), weren’t much of an option because of the incredible amounts of seaweed that have been overwhelming much of the Atlantic side of the island. Not anyone’s fault, but just a fact. So most days we’d drive to the Caribbean side (about 30-40 minutes) and enjoy the amazing beaches and calm, turquoise Caribbean waters.
The main complaint with the apartment during our June stay was the fact that the air conditioner for the unit wasn’t working. The owner warned us of this a few weeks out, saying the AC was out and couldn’t be replaced until late July. They had added a few portable units to try to help, but they were essentially just fans blowing air but not cooling the air in the unit at all. This made our stay in the unit uncomfortably warm and sticky.
All in all a nice property and nice people, but without AC in a humid time of the year it made it a tough vacation.
Hi Patrick I'm glad you made the most of your holiday in Antigua and was obviously disappointed and apologized that our less than a year old compressor had failed permanently prior to your arrival.
An event we had no control over.
As you know new a/c compressor units cannot be bought "off the shelf" in Antigua and have to be imported from the USA taking 8 weeks to arrive.
We therefore secured the best portable a/c units available in Antigua (as well as 2 powerfull fans) but given the very high humidity levels during your stay they were unfortunately not able to exactly equal conventional a/c units.
Our new a/c set up will cost over US$20k and be the best Daikin can provide.
We hope you will visit us again accordingly.
