Serenity at 'Villa Cliffside'
Cliffside is a spacious 2 BD/2 BA split Caribbean get-away with breath taking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Antigua's off shore islands. Enjoy dining/entertaining and the fully covered veranda and/or relax, dine or just take a break on the deck next to the 120 ft cliff and take in the view. A short 3 minute walk down the hill will bring you to beautiful Long Bay Beach, one of Antigua's best beaches.
The cliffside deck is a perfect place to view the reefs and passing sailboats; its also a great place to sunbath or for star gazing at night.
The property has mature gardens and the nature is unbelievable, enjoy the natural beauty of the passing Ospreys who share this beautiful cliff with us.
We try and provide all you may want or need for your stay, our caretakers will ensure your stay with us is both enjoyable and comfortable.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2001
Villa Cliffside was a dream from my childhood as I visited Antigua with my parents yearly. So in 1999 I built this beautiful villa with the original openness of the Caribbean always in mind.
While either living there or just visiting these days I love to walk the mature gardens around the villa and am always amazed at the beauty of the turpentine, lime and false almond trees on the property. We love putting out cane sugar for the local finches, (Sky Hounds) as my husband calls them.
Long Bay beach is short walk down the hill and a morning walk to Devils Bridge is both heathy and the sunrises are magnificent.
We certainly are fortune to have this lovely piece of property and hope you find your visit both comfortable, relaxing and all you hope for.
We certainly enjoyed Antigua and moreover your residence. The Villa is extraordinary and the view breathtaking.
I want to thank you for your hospitality and sharing the place.
I will take time later to write a note.
It is not often that a place turns out to be as good as the pictures, but Cliffside was actually better.
Wonderful location, with views so incredible you actually looked forward to getting up early each morning. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, venturing out a few times to explore the island, but were always glad to return to Long Bay. We began and ended every day on the deck - coffee in the morning enjoying the colors of the ocean, and being amazed by the star-filled sky every evening.
The beach there was great, with easy snorkeling since coral and fish began within a few feet of the shore.
The constant breeze made for very comfortable conditions. The Villa had everything we needed, and Christiane was available if we had any questions.
Paul was very helpful with our pretrip planning, and checked in on us during our stay.
Cliffside Villa was everything we had hoped for, and more. We have every intention to return - hopefully soon.
This was our first time on Antigua and it didn't disappoint! Villa was beautiful and very clean. Owners were always quick to respond before our vacation and during and had helpful suggestions. The only issues we had were the roku wasn't working but the owner tried to resolve the problem quickly but couldn't so they are looking into it further and the water pressure in the showers was not good(but this is Antigua so not much you can do). The people on the island are extremely friendly and willing to give directions when needed or just ask how you are doing. Our favorite beach was half moon bay, not crowded and great snorkeling! Took a little time to get used to driving on the island since we are from the United States, but you get used to it. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach!
We returned to Antigua this Spring to enjoy 3 wonderful weeks at Cliffside Villa. It was truly a lovely stay , the villa offers the most amazing views of the ocean in a beautiful setting. Fully equipped accommodation with all the amenities you would need , just a short walk to Long Bay; one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.
Antigua is a lovely island with many great spots to explore, friendly people and amazing weather. Cliffside offers you a memorable holiday, we will be returning again !
This is truer for me than most because as you know I am an Antiguan! We had a truly wonderful 3 weeks at Cliffside once again, proof if proof is needed (which it isn't!) is that we have already booked for next February! The villa itself has just about everything needed for a holiday rental with the fantastic weather and views thrown in for free! Another added bonus is the constant delight of the Bananaquits, the lizards and, of course, Lucy! It really is a piece of Paradise, but then I might be a tad biased! Truly Cliffside is a delightful spot in every way.
As I write this, it is minus 10 degrees and I am holding very close in my mind the memories of another ABSOLUTELY AMAZING visit to Cliffside Villa and Antigua! This was our third year in a row to our favorite villa on the island and we love it even more. We feel like we've arrived home once we enter the gates and see the blue ocean past the veranda. We love the layout of a separate kitchen and den from the bedrooms...the beautiful fully blooming landscaped yard...the UNBELIEVABLE view from the porch and deck...the short walk to the gorgeous beach below. Well, to put it succinctly, we cannot wait to return! We are already working on our dates for 2016! If you want more information about the villa, please read my very detailed reviews from 1/26/13, 2/06/14. We brought two guest and their reviews are on 2/10/14 and 2/22/14. Thankfully, nothing has changed since we wrote our reviews so you know that this wonderful villa is still as perfect as it was the first time we arrived three years ago. Each year we try a new restaurant or activity and this year did not disappoint. If at all possible, make a reservation for a special lunch at the amazing Catherine's Cafe Plage! Truly, it is a dining experience not to miss. Take along your bathing suit to spend time on the adjoining Pigeon Beach. Then if you want a day to remember forever, take the Caribbean Helicopter tour of Barbuda where you'll see the largest Frigate bird colony in the world, as well as walk on a 17 mile pink beach that is uninhabited. But know this: Even if you never step one foot off the property of Cliffside, you will have made memories forever! Cliffside Villa is one of a kind and we absolutely love it there! We cannot wait to return! Happy traveling!
Cliffside photos do not do it justice. We arrived very late due to a delayed flight and thanks to Paul for his wonderful directions we found it! Thanks too for Christiane making us so welcome and doing some shopping for us. Cliffside is very characterful and we instantly fell in love with it. Imagine our delight next morning when we also saw the wonderful views.... The closeness to the lovely Long Bay beach make a day spent down there very easy. We ate at both La Tartagua and Barrow (such a nice man). We explored most of the island. An excursion to Half Moon Bay is recommended and the little hut on the beach serves marvellous grilled prawns. We also enjoyed having lunch at Coconut Grove on Dickenson Bay. Another favourite for lunch was OJ's on Darkwood Beach. English Harbour/Nelsons Dockyard is lovely, go into the Admirals Inn and take the free ferry across to the other side for another delightful lunch. However we were always so pleased to come back to Cliffside. There were no restaurants in walking distance that were open at night but we were so happy to eat at home, and that is how we thought of Cliffside, home. We also had a fun day's trip on a catamaran, they pick up at the bottom of the hill, so very easy. We went into St. Johns a few times. The locals were so friendly everywhere. The only negative thing is that two weeks weren't long enough! Paul and Sheila were very easy to deal with all the way through. Let's hope we can come back one day.
