staying in antigua first
We often have to stay at least one night in Antigua before we can get to or from Barbuda on the busy local flight or the ferry, so we recommend that you plan for this and spend a more relaxing time there.
Guest houses and Hotels
There are many guest houses in Antigua listed on Airbnb and on booking.com and we have stayed at several of them. Airbnb has more listings than any other 'homestay' sites but does not list the accommodation separately for Antigua and for Barbuda, so although it 'suggests' homes on Barbuda, they are probably not on Barbuda at all. So if you are looking for Barbuda Airbnb's make sure you double check which island it is actually on.
The 3-star Wind Chimes Inn in Antigua is close to the airport and only a 30 minute drive into St. John's. It has 7 guestrooms with fridge and microwave. Every day a complimentary breakfast is served in the dining room. The hotel can organise car rentals for guests. Phone: +1 268-728-2917
Come on a Day Tour
Antigua +39 Tours are run by Italians Melania and Roberto who come to Barbuda on a regular basis. They are very familiar with the best places to see on Barbuda, and bring delicious picnics with them. This a great day tour to do while you are on holiday in Antigua, especially if you are from Italia!
Or if you want to stay longer on Antigua...
