About the property

Welcome to our private luxury apartment at Nonsuch Bay Resort in Antigua.

This first floor (second floor for Americans) 176m2 apartment sleeps up to seven (including a sofa bed and and two extra child bed options).

Each of the two bedrooms comes with their own en-suite bathroom.

Our extensive balcony offers superb panoramic ocean views overlooking Nonsuch Bay towards Green Island.

Guests have full use of all standard resort facilities when staying at our fully equipped self catering apartment.

Some of Antigua's favorite restaurants Catherine's, Trappas, Abracadabra, Incanto, Cloggy's and Caribbean Taste can also be enjoyed on a night out at English Harbour.

All inclusive resort meal packages can also be booked via the resort (subject to resort confirmed availability).

Sailing packages can also be booked via the resort in the same way.

40 knots Kite Surfing school are based at the resort and nearby Green Island.

Kite surfing can be booked directly with them via the 40knots website.

Nonsuch Bay Resort is an intimate gated resort set in 40 acres of tropically landscaped grounds. Nonsuch Bay itself is a beautiful natural harbour on the island's east coast approximately 35 minutes from the airport.

The bay's clear waters are protected by a barrier reef while at its mouth is Green Island, an uninhabited snorkeler's paradise. With the bay rapidly emerging as Antigua's centre for small boat and dinghy sailing this further enhances the resort as an exclusive holiday destination.

Steady year round temperatures of 80-85 degrees F (27-30 degrees C) during the day are made even more attractive by the cool and refreshing north easterly trade wind breezes coming in from the bay.

Wonderful Apartment in a beautiful relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

My family had the most lovely holiday in Nonsuch, the weather was perfect, the apartment was well appointed and exceptionally comfortable. We all found the staff at the resort friendly and attentive. Peter's recommendations were greatly appreciated, and he was a very responsive host. It was our first visit to Antigua but it certainly won't be our last. Overall a fantastic family break, in a beautiful location.

Beautiful property, but a few issues on our stay

  • 3 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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. Peter

Great stay at Peter's condo

  • 5 of 5

Peter's apartment at Nonsuch Bay was absolutely fantastic.

Where to start - the apartment itself is large, airy, well-equipped, clean and extremely well situated on the resort. We only used one bedroom - but both are large and the bed is comfortable. The unit is air conditioned, but we didn't need it - not even once. With the front door open onto the ocean, the breeze is glorious and keeps everything nice and cool - both day and night. We encountered a period of high winds - no one's fault - but our weather was otherwise sunny everyday with the requisite 10 minutes of rain every day! One reviewer does mention wind - and to be fair, we did find Antigua and Nonsuch Bay more windy than other islands we have visited. Pool area is gorgeous and right outside our balcony - wish the water were heated but its clean and very refreshing. The beach area is small but perfect - not too busy, no folks selling their wares - perfect! Lots of water activities available for those who want to sail, windsurf, etc. We ate a couple of times in the restaurant - which was squarely in the "OK" category. Food is a little expensive and very much "mass produced" - so my best advice would be to try it once but to make other arrangements for other meals. Peter leaves a binder full of great information in the unit - and we tried many of the places he recommended which were great - less expensive, more casual, more authentic.

In summary, I would very much recommend Peter's place both for families and for couples. It was relaxing and provided us with fun adventures throughout our 10 days.

Antigua is clearly an adventure - why not enjoy it in the luxury of Peter's apartment!

Great 10 days in fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as a family of 5 (3 x late teens) and were shown all the facilities. Extra bed available in second bedroom. The closest pool is just below the apartment and the beach is about 80 yards away. You have to option of all inclusive, self catering or a mixture of the two. If self catering then a car is advisable for shopping and exploring the islands beaches and sights. The owner is very responsive and provides lots of advice and information prior to the visit and the on-site housekeeper is contactable any time using the apartment mobile if there are further questions. Drinks served on the beach - FOC!

Kayaks and sailing available (modern dinghies and Hobie Cat - rates included in all inclusive tariff) Kite Surfing school operates from the beach - separate business and tariffs dispalyed.

A gem!!

Lovely Apartment!

  • 4 of 5

Very peaceful, quiet resort where you can relax under the palm trees on the beach. The apartment is lovely, has everything you need to make your own meals, generous in size, and an ideal location at the resort, overlooking a beautiful pool. If you like kite sailing or sailing, this is an ideal location on the Atlantic side of the island with strong winds. For a Caribbean aqua blue water soft sand beach, Half Moon Bay is ideally located only 10 minutes away. In my opinion, the only thing the apartment lacked was some board games for nightly entertainment with kids. Otherwise, it is a great place to stay and the owner is extremely helpful and attentive to help make your stay fabulous!

Outstanding Antigua Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Peter, for making your Nonsuch Bay apartment available for our vacation.

The apartment was spacious and well appointed, the views were stunning and the proximity of the beach and infinity pool was perfect.

We would recommend a car rental as the Resort is a bit remote, especially if you are not participating in the all inclusive options. This also gave us the flexibility to explore this beautiful island.

The sailing and snorkeling offered at the Resort was an added bonus and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the staff at Nonsuch Bay. We were warmly welcomed all about the island.

A special Thank you to Pascale for her help in navigating us to the Resort upon our arrival and her availability during the week.

Overall, a wonderful experience...we look forward to returning.
