The Galley Bay Cottages are a great place to spend time in Antigua. The view from the SeaBreeze cottage is breathtaking and it’s only a few minutes’ walk to the beach at Galley Bay. The cottages are a short drive from St. John’s. The road to the Cottages has recently been fixed. The SeaBreeze cottage is clean and comfortable; the... More

We have just got back from the most fantastic holiday at Galley Bay cottages. The view from the cottage is breathtaking, and Natalie, Peter and Ella were fantastic hosts. If you are after a resort type break, this isn't really the holiday for you, but for us it was the best of everything we like in a holiday. We strolled... More

talk about your perfect spot! Natalie's cottages provide you with privacy in a charmingly designed cottage with just a very short walk to the beach. Off the beaten path, yet close enough to St John's - we loved exploring the island (nothing's very far away) & chilling on our own deck to relax, admire the view or chat with Natalie... More

we have travelled a lot and have seen many places in the caribbeans, but the Breeze Cottage is certainly one of the best of all. The view from the terrace is splendid! A million dollar view! It´s only a short walk down to the perfect beach of Galley Bay, with the best sand and the best crystal clear water you... More

We just returned from spending 6 nights at the Spice cottage. It is a beautiful cottage with a wonderful covered porch wrapping around 2 sides. French doors are on 2 sides of the living room/kitchen which we opened up every morning. A few birds seemed at home flying into the kitchen to help themselves to fruit or bread we'd leave... More

My girlfriend and I spent a leasurely 10 day stay at Galley Bay Cottages in early December. Although the Cottages are only 4 miles from St Johns the location is very quiet and secluded and they take a bit of finding. Better to let Natalie collect you from the airport . I would suggest car hire is almost essential as... More

Do not confuse Galley Bay Cottages with the Galley Bay Resort, which is an all-inclusive hotel that is a hell of a lot pricier! Was pleasantly surprised when I got to the cottages as the pictures on the website do not do it justice. Quaint, fully equipped, airy are some of the words that come to mind. The bedroom contained...

A friend recommended Natalie's cottages as a wonderful retreat and it turns out to be the perfect 3 week holiday. Natalie put me in Breeze which is full of charm and has the most stunning sea views.

Wooden gingerbread cottages each with an ocean view, cool breezes and open layouts allow you to experience a uniquely Caribbean vacation.The shabby chic colonial interiors have been indiviudally decorated and furnished with an eclectic mix of European antiques, renovated finds and Caribbean art. Wonderful details like locally fired and hand painted tiles and face basins, four poster beds and wooden painted shutters are a delight for your eyes daily. Each unit is self contained with a fully equipped kitchen and all have amazing sea views, with private galleries perfect for relaxing day and night.
