Gray Gate is a Walled Indoor\Outdoor Estate Home in the very best neighborhood on the Island and is about 5 miles from the Airport and 5 miles to St. John's.

We have a separate Guest House that allows this flexibility and the main house bedrooms can be locked off. So you can rent just the Guest House and the living areas of the main house or just the Main House or the Main House and the Guest House. The living room is very large and open on 2 ends and has a great view of the ocean. This home is really a indoor\outdoor home with large glass doors on 1 side facing due east and 14ft teak folding doors on the other to capture the super trade winds that cool the house. You don't need AC in this home! Year Round Antiuga Temps are about 73 to 86 Degrees. It cools off nicely at night.
The dining room is completely open on 2 sides and the table can seat up to about 8 with the included extra table top. Connected to the Living Room and Dining Room is the Kitchen. In the kitchen you will find everything you need to cook up a fabulous meal and you can see the ocean while cooking! Included in the main house is the master bedroom with a new tempurpedic King Mattress with nice new bedding and lots of King pillows and lots of closet space. The master bedroom has a connecting Bathroom with bathtub. You can see the ocean from this bedroom. There is a full bathroom with a shower just off the hall and that is next to the front bedroom.

Antigua has been my families Island home for 40 years and this home has everything you might need for a nice Holiday. We have had the same housekeeper who comes on Mondays for 36 years and the same Gardner for 18 years. They have known the house for 36 years so if you need some help they are close by.
