5/5 Excellent

Hidden island paradise
We spent two weeks at Pinkshacktoo in early March. Sonja has created a hidden gem in a quiet town just fifteen minutes drive from St. Johns. The cottage is basic but completely sufficient. We appreciated being able to cook there or to get local takeout (Friday nights from the woman who cooks Fridays and Saturday nights from her sister, who cooks Saturdays). Although we explored quite a few beaches, our daily favorite was Deep Bay, the nearest, just a few minutes drive away. Sonja is an energetic gem. Her initial driving tour acquainted us with the island. Her suggestions for excursions, or just for the best roadside local food helped turn our vacation into a true exploration of Antigua. It is a fascinating island with loads of "all inclusives" and daily cruise ships. Sonja and Pinkshacktoo helped us avoid that aspect of Antigua and led us to a more intimate island experience. Keep in mind that she is located in the countryside in a neighborhood with lots of barking dogs, braying donkeys and roosting roosters. Once we learned to close our windows at night we slept much better. Renting a jeep from Sonja is almost a necessity, as is a brave heart and iron will to drive on Antigua. Well worth it, though.

5/5 Excellent

The cottage and surrounding garden were lovely and hostess Sonja was superb. Highly recommended.
Sonja has built an oasis of palms and other native foliage in her garden, and also managed to fit in about half a dozen holiday homes. The property is fairly remote so jeep hire is recommended. There are shared laundry facilities. We heard no one and were completely undisturbed for our 9 nights there. She has 7 cute dogs and several cats who wander by to say hello, but are not a nuisance. Sonja offers a Meet and Greet service from and to the airport, including a food shopping and local driver’s license stop on the way there. She was very kind and thoughtful but did not intrude in any way. A superb hostess. There are several sites to see on Antigua, but mercifully most of them are beaches. The weather (in February) was warm yet breezy so perfect.

a friendly and comfortable oasis
A wonderful find in Antigua. Pinkshacktoo was just what we wanted for our stay. It is one of 4 cottage rooms on a fenced in property full of beautiful vegetation that separates you from your neighbors, with a central area with chairs and a barbecue if you want to be social. The cottage is the most recently constructed one and was clean and well equipped for cooking and the bed comfortable. Sonja was a friendly and helpful hostess who went beyond what we expected by giving us a personal tour of the island on our first day. We enjoyed her sweet rescue dogs and cats (outside, they aren't allowed in the cottages). Unsurprisingly, we met people who have been regulars for years. The property is just outside St. John's, which is a $15 USD taxi ride, so I would recommend renting a vehicle if you stay here. (and driving in Antigua will take some getting used to..)
