St. Philip Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Villa Kulala is a luxurious four bedroom property on the east coast of Antigua. Sleeping eight people comfortably, the house is in a unique setting at the entrance to Dian Bay and is exposed to constant cooling trade-winds.
The property is very private, sitting at the end of a promontory known as Dumm’s Point. Long Bay, one of the best of Antigua’s 365 beaches, is only a short walk away.
Kulala sits above a 40 foot cliff and has spectacular views South across Dian Bay. The view encompasses a national park with Devil’s Bridge. There is private access to the sea from the property.
The villa has been designed as a series of interconnected buildings linked by paths and gardens planted with a wide variety of tropical plants. Throughout there is a Balinese theme, whether picked up by the columns specially hand-carved in Bali, the colour scheme, or the Indonesian furniture.
The living and dining areas have been designed to be as open as possible and to take advantage of the breeze. The sitting room leads onto a large pergola-covered terrace with a view across the bay on one side and an inner courtyard with a Balinese style garden on the other.
The swimming pool has an infinity edge which melts into the bay beyond.
There are four bedrooms: bedrooms one and two have king-size four poster beds from Bali, bedroom three has twin beds and bedroom four a king-size double bed. The 4 bedrooms all have unique four poster airconditioned beds which allow for the guests to sleep in cooled comfort whilst still keeping the window louvers open and each has an en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom has a rain shower and bathtub. All the other bedrooms have walk-through changing rooms with hanging space and a shower. Each bathroom has a different set of hand carved stone washbasins. Please note that there are no interconnecting bedrooms, therefore the villa might not be suitable for younger children.
The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a Viking gas range cooker, dishwasher and refrigerator/freezer and Chalon worktable and storage cupboards.

About Amanda Neal
James and Amanda live in London, but spend as much time as they can in Antigua. One of these days they hope to be able to spend weeks at a time, especially in winter, enjoying island life.
Amanda Neal purchased this villa in 2003
Why Amanda Neal chose St. Philip
We always wanted to build a house in the sun, and when we saw the land at Dumm's Point we knew we had found the perfect location to do just that. The villa has been designed to take advantage of the cooling Trade Winds and the wonderful views, you can see the sea from every room in the house.
What makes this villa unique
Everytime we arrive at the villa we are entranced by the views. Looking out at Dian Bay with its fantastic colours, sitting on the terrace with a drink in hand watching the pelicans swoop in front of us, the Trade Winds keeping us cool and the sound of the waves below us, we cannot believe how lucky we are to own this little piece of paradise If you are looking for peace and quiet then this is the place for you.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved staying at Kulala. What a beautiful peaceful view to wake up to every morning and star watching at night. We toured round the whole island, and loved Antigua.
Three nights we had a private chef, Vere. He cooked the most delicious food and we had the best seat in town for dining! We would highly recommend Vere if you are looking for a relaxing evening at home.
We also did the zip-line and that was lots of fun. The company is very safety oriented which is what you want.
All in all everything was fantastic and we loved everything. Will be back.
