The space

Spice is a spacious cottage that can accommodate 4 + guests comfortably.
The master bedroom has a queen four poster bed which is placed in front of a large window that will let you enjoy the view of the sea and the surrounding trees. Upstairs is an attic bedroom ideal for young guests to enjoy their own private space.
The kitchen/living area is very spacious and comfortable. French doors open out onto a large covered deck that wraps around two sides of the cottage, ideal for having breakfast and dinners alfresco or just to relax or read a book in a quiet and inspiring environment.
Spice is located 4 minutes walk from the beautiful Galley Bay Beach.
Galley Bay is an exclusive area on the west coast of Antigua.
The area is home to luxurious villas which have all been designed to blend with the environment in perfect harmony with nature.
The nearby Galley Bay Hotel follows the same concept of luxury and simplicity with respect for the natural environment.
Shopping centers and supermarkets are located 10 minutes away by car and a small local shop in the nearby village can supply basic products and fresh bread baked in a wood oven.
Local transportation can be found at the village which is 10 minutes walk from the cottages.
A vehicle is recommended, preferably a jeep, that will allow you to visit all the remote beaches and the island...

Even though we made a last minute booking everything was so easy and Marco was super helpful - going above and beyond even though it was only a one night stay! Great spot,would love to come back for longer! Thank you Marco :)

Simply perfect. Not much more I can say really, except that Marco was outstanding. His consideration about our needs and prompt response to any question we sent him was exemplary. Galley Bay is very peaceful, a little remote maybe and you will need a car. The beach house was the essence of Caribbean "Shabby chic", loved the stye, loved the spaces, loved the pool but most of all loved the view as we drank tea from our bed. Simply perfect.

Spice Cottage is just beautiful, and Marco is a great host. He arranged everything for us most efficiently, and was most helpful. We all absolutely loved our short stay there!

This is a fantastic place for a romantic getaway, or any kind of getaway really. The cottage is delightful and it's within walking distance of a couple of beautiful beaches. You'll definitely need a car for food shopping, and for touring the rest of the island. Marco was fantastic, he met us at the airport and took us to a nearby Epicurean on the way to our cottage so we could stock up on groceries. We would definitely stay at his cottages again!

Marco is a wonderful host. Welcoming, helpful, and trustworthy. Place in Five island is quiet and isolated. Good for someone who's planing for short and safe get away.

The host Marco was very nice and responsive. He offered to meet at the airport but I am a local so I had no issues locating the cottages. I have stayed in other cottages on island before but Galley Bay offered more space. Happy with my choice.

Marco was a fantastic host. Due to a hiccup in the booking with our original Airbnb we arrived in Antigua with no where to stay. After a last minute booking Marco came to the rescue. He cut his lunch short to pick us up from the airport and take us to his cottage. He also helped us get a car rental, even when American Express told us there were no rentals available. He gave us very helpful suggestions about the island and neighboring towns. He was also very insightful about activities, directions and places to eat. The cottage was as advertised, but even then pictures do it no justice. The cottage is very cozy. Conveniently located a short walk to the beautiful beach of Galley bay. The view of the ocean from the deck is serene. The driveway was super convent for parking. The cottage is very well kept and well ventilated even with no AC I never felt hot. There are several fans to keep the rooms cool. The mosquito netting over the bed also gave us peace of mind knowing we wouldn't be chewed up over night. The bathroom was nice and had good water pressure as well as hot water. The kitchen is well stocked with kitchenware and utensils, overall great for cooking. The upstairs bedroom was spacious and comfortable, although a little hard to get luggage up due to the steep steps. Being up on a hill away from the town sleeping was a dream, I was lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature. Marco and the cottage were above and beyond of any my expectations!
