The website in 2018 - August update
We are gradually updating the website on a monthly basis since we experienced devastating Hurricane Irma last September. Irma was the most deadly hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic, making first landfall on Barbuda with winds recorded at 298km/h, but leaving Antigua almost unscathed. Barbudans were evacuated to Antigua adding to the trauma of leaving their damaged homes and loose animals to the army; many of which were lost or killed. Since then the international response has been overwhelming and wonderful (with special thanks to all of you) as repairs are made to homes and we start to try to regain our traditional way of life. Our facebook page has recorded all of this and is updated every day but we are still (nearly a year later) without electricity at home and now into the next hurricane season. The internet is slow and people have limited phone signal.
Visitors to Barbuda are ALWAYS made very welcome and are coming back now in larger numbers, and we have a great regular ferry service (weather permitting) and almost daily flights. The Antigua government announced a brand new ferry service but after three weeks it's no longer running. They also re-announced Barbuda Airways but this has been promoted several times before so we await it's actual arrival. The official Antigua and Barbuda Tourism department is very keen on day tours, but getting here and back in one day is our perennial problem. So we suggest you stay as long as possible in Barbuda and enjoy the beaches and our wonderful community over two or three days - or even longer - you will be so glad you did.
I update guesthouse info as soon as it becomes available, but please continue to message us if you need to know something.
