We had a wonderful weeklong stay at the Long House! Having Mossy meet us at the airport and following her back to the house via the grocery store was a godsend. Definitely load up on groceries since they can be sparse on the island. The house is even more beautiful than the photos and the views from every corner are stunning! Long Beach, the Devil’s Bridge and Stingray City/Tortoise Island are a must and are very close to the house. Four wheel drive is highly recommended on the often bumpy roads. We look forward to coming back soon.

My husband and I have recently returned from Antigua having spent the most amazing 10 nights at The Long House.
Nick’s house really does have the WOW factor. It is set on a peninsula, so you have the view of the ocean on both sides of the property. The location for us was absolutely perfect, it was quiet and very private and the views were spectacular. We both felt very safe and comfortable in our surroundings.
We had beautiful weather during our stay, a constant 28C with a wonderful warm breeze.
Communication with Nick was fabulous, he kept us well informed throughout our booking, provided a welcome pack which was extremely helpful, and responded very quickly to any questions or concerns that we had. On arrival at Antigua Airport Mossy (Nick’s mother-in-law) was waiting for us with a lovely warm and friendly welcome. She waited patiently whilst we sorted out our hire car and then we followed her by car to the house, which is about 35mins drive from the airport. She gave us a tour and showed us how everything worked, which was so helpful and appreciated and it made us feel completely at home. Mossy also left contact numbers and a mobile phone in case we needed to contact her. As our flight was in the evening, Mossy very kindly did a small shop for us, to get us started and enabled us to have a cup of tea that evening, after a long flight, and the following morning.
The house is very clean, well equipped and extremely comfortable with so much space inside and out. There were only 2 of us, so we only used half the house, but there was ample space to accommodate 4 couples. The swimming pool is amazing and so clean, we were never out of it, just being in the pool and being able to look out onto the ocean was priceless.
Mercedes the house clearer was lovely and so friendly as were the pool guys.
To enjoy Antigua I would definitely recommend hiring a car. There are some beautiful beaches and great places to visit.
This was a very special holiday for my husband and I, and one where I celebrated my 60th Birthday. This was a truly magical holiday for us with so many wonderful memories. There is honestly no other place I would rather have been to celebrate !

We truly enjoyed our time at the Long House - it is a very unique property and beautifully laid out for a group to enjoy the outdoor space together. The pool was amazing when it was warm out during the day. It is only 15 minutes from a lovely beach - Long Bay and Mama Pizza was really good for lunch. It was always cool and breezy and not at all buggy. We cooked most nights after a very expensive shopping trip to Epicurious in St Johns! Because we arrived later than expected Mossy picked up some groceries for us to start us off which was very lovely. We highly recommend the new restaurant Rakuni, and also loved Island Fusion Cafe and The Fox House in Jolly harbor. Also recommend Gaddaboat for a sailing charter. We also loved the Stingray and Tortoise Island tour and that was close by. You must have a 4 wheel drive car and expect terrible roads and a lot of driving to get anywhere - that was the only downside but well worth it to enjoy the lovely views and space.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Long House. The beautiful vistas and the serene location will be with us forever. It is clear that there was thoughtful design and positioning of the Long House to maximize the views and constant breeze. The Long House offered a perfect blend of modern amenities, privacy and the ability to getaway. Our stay at the Long House was what we wanted, what we needed.

Thanks to Mossy, Nick, Mercedes, Navi (who hooked us up with live lobsters and showed us how to cook them) for making it a very enjoyable and memorable trip. The villa has all the appointments we needed, and views for miles. Dr. Benjamin Bridge was able to send a mobile nurse to Covid test us at the house the day before our return, which made that whole process extremely easy too. The weather is pretty constantly perfect and breezy, so with fans we didn’t miss AC. Do take note you’re living in a very open space, so keep your counters clean and food locked away, or birds (or other animals) will go after it. We grilled most days, which was a great option. You will need a car, though, as trips to the store or anywhere else will require it.

We came to Antigua for a friends wedding and searched for a house/villa as a the hotel wouldn't accept kids. This was the first time using Vrbo and after a long search, we made contact with Nick for details on the Long House.
Nick was amazing. He answered all our concerns, questions quickly and provided a great welcome pack when we booked.
On arrival (as with all the comments on here) Mossy met us at the airport, took us to the local supermarket and escorted us to the house. When we arrived at the house, she showed us round, left contact details and a local mobile phone which we could use during our stay.
So, the house. The pictures do not do this place justice......! This house is amazing. Great layout, everything you needed for a home from home, lovely space for the family to chill out (inside and out) and the best view in the morning and at night you could wish for.
We were a family of 4 from the UK (kids 11 & 13) and thought this place was lovely. Morning swim, out for the day visiting the various beaches/restaurants around the island and home to watch the sunset.
As mentioned, the mobile phone provided was great and allowed us to contact local restaurants and book taxis for day trips etc.
Final thoughts..... We will definitely be back to this house. Comfortable, safe and with the view who wouldn't. Also, with the host's been super helpful, you couldn't ask for more.
p.s. I forgot to mention the lovely house cleaner Mercedes. She was lovely and amazing.

Everything about our experience in reserving and staying at The Long House was more than we could have hoped for. Nick was incredibly helpful and responsive during the reservation process and pre-check-in. When we arrived at the airport, Mossy was there to greet us us, lead us to the grocery store, and get us settled in at The Long House. Having never been to Antigua before, this was incredibly helpful and above and beyond what we were expecting. Once we arrived at The Long House we were blown away by its beauty and unique layout. The views are stunning and the layout of the house was perfect for our group of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids). We had a very active week-long vacation and explored the entire island. While we experienced so many amazing things across the island, the mornings and evenings at The Long House were what made the whole experience so amazing. It was the perfect place to unwind, make home-cooked meals, and just enjoy the beauty and tranquility. Thank you Nick and Mossy!

This is the first time we have used a VRBO and Nick and Mossy set the bar very high. We had a spectacular 9 day visit to the Long House. Everything about our experience was wonderful. Being the first time using VRBO I had a few questions for Nick and he was always the most responsive.
Once we arrived Mossy met us at the Airport, escorted us to the rental car counter, led us to a grocery store and then onto the house.
Our family of 5 stay stayed here and everyone loved it. The house and pool were awesome. We explored all over Antigua during the mornings and then enjoyed the tranquility of the house in the afternoon and evenings.
It was a perfect vacation at a beautiful home.

Mossy met us at the airport, made sure we got set up with a rental, guided us to the grocery and then to the house. The house was amazing and everything is was said to be. Mr. Nick was very helpful and patient with all my questions prior to arriving. Both Mr Nick and Mrs Mossy are both top notch and I would highly recommend this house to anyone. It is a bit away from some places, but just a 30 to 40 minute ride and you are there (keeping in mind, you are on an island so everything is within a 30 to 40 minute ride).

Check in was a breeze. Mossy met us at airport. Then took us to grocery store and even made a stop to get some mango at a smaller store. The house was great. Amazing views all day long. Pool was amazing. Much bigger than the pictures and deep. The location offer a lot of privacy. We only used half the house. This would be perfect for larger or multiple families.
