SPECTACULAR VERY PRIVATE OCEAN VIEW VILLA WITH OWN ACCESS TO THE BAY

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.

Villa Kulala is paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family and I were recently in Antigua for a wedding and had the great forture of spending a week at Villa Kulala. As you can see from the pictures the panoramic views are amazing. The villa itself is balinese inspired and beautifully decorated. The staff were great and very helpful. The rooms are superb and open to the outside and all have their own en-suite bathrooms. The air-conditioned bed provided dreamy sleeps. Everything in Kulala is top notch.

The best part of the process however was dealing with Amanda (the owner), we asked a lot of questions and she was very helpful and fantastic to deal with. While we were there we also rented the equally luxurious Villa Azura (Amanda's other property next door) and it worked out great if you have a large group. I would recommend Villa Kulala to anyone who wants to experience the caribbean at its most beautiful. Thanks Amanda for such an amazing vacation!

Cool breezes, breathtaking view and elegant house

  • 5 of 5
Easy trip from the East Coast of US to Antigua. The house is situated perfectly with a view of the National Park across Long Bay on the northeastern point of Antigua. This is the preferred end of the island due to cool breezes (that keep the bugs away and temperatures down). The Villa is very comfortable, clean, well maintained with many lovely open spaces (living room and pool room) and 4 bedrooms that easily sleeps 9. The kitchen has a wonderful Viking 6 burner that allows for easy cooking for 9 and the grounds are meticulous with fragrant jasmine and colorful hummingbirds. The pool is fresh water and has an unbeatable view out to Long Bay. The access down the simple stone stairs to the very warm and clear waters of the bay make this very private property simply perfect. We would often go for a run in the morning down to Long Beach (very safe), then come back to swim across the bay for a glorious cool down swim. This bay is like swimming in the most beautiful aquarium you can imagine.

The owners are incredibly helpful, the photos are very accurate, we would recommend this property to those who enjoy a naturally elegant and private location.

This beautiful home is in an ideal setting. The large kitchen is well-equipped with anything you might want. The bedrooms are large, complete with climate-controlled beds and outside showers! The pool is great and there is a stairway leading right down to the ocean and swimmable bay! Wonderful vacation!

Our Idea of Happiness

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had great expectations about Villa Kulala but our stay during two weeks in August exceeded them. We immediately realized the owners have the same idea of luxury we have, which has to do with privacy and beauty and nature.
Of course, being low season (and in Antigua they take the low season very seriously) once we reached the villa we had very few reasons to leave it: the restaurants of the area were closed by night and the few supermarkets are quite far. But if you enjoy calm, silence (apart from frogs and crickets) and aloneness as much as we do, the place is paradise. You wake up in the morning to a view of incredible beauty: you find yourself on a breathtaking promontory, slightly beaten during our summer by a wind that kept insects away and pelicans happily flying and diving all around us. The pool and the garden are a peaceful place to lounge and relax, and every couple of hours we would go snorkeling. A few rock steps take you to the sea, where the tide is always quite low and at the right time of the day you enjoy the company of small barracudas, shy turtles, and millions of small fishes. During our stay we had no neighbours apart from Chistiane, who lives two houses away and is very helpful. The only people we saw were the clients of the Verandah, the resort built on the opposite side of the promontory, who sail inside the bay. By night the front terrace becomes a place for meditation and stargazing. Villa Kulala really is a place with a mystical quality, we would recommend it to travellers who like being on their own, or to group of friends who enjoy being away from it all. We headed back home rested and fit and ready for our busy lives, happy to know we might be back one day to Kulala to shake the stress off.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that Kulala lived up to your expectations, and in fact exceeded them! We love Kulala for its peace and quiet, and it is so nice to hear we are not the only ones who do. Thank you for kind words, and we look forward to another visit from you both one of these days.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5
Booked the villa for my husband's 40th birthday with a group of friends. During the planning process, Amanda was very helpful and prompt with her responses. Once we walked passed the gate, the stunning views took our breath away. Originally I planned day trips, places to see, things to do around the island. After our arrival, we didn't want to leave the villa. Snorkeling right off the property, good sized pool, Long Bay beach within walking distance, and meals at Mama's made this the perfect relaxing vacation we needed.
