Villa H is located on the unspoiled east coast of the island of Antigua, one of the most exclusive destinations in the Caribbean. Standing atop a slightly elevated headland on the edge of (and with private access to) a tranquil coral reef-protected turquoise bay, the Villa has a commanding panoramic view of the Indian Town National Park promontory, a protected area of exceptional natural beauty, and the infinite horizon of the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
Villa H is a spacious and stunning contemporary 2 bedroom property with a fresh, chic and modern look. With large open and light-filled spaces, high ceilings, floor to ceiling glass windows and doors, the Villa cleverly embraces the beauty of its unique outdoor environment while providing total comfort.
Villa H offers a 10-seating outdoor dining verandah which includes a two-meter custom-made barbecue and direct access to a sunken al fresco daybed-lounge. The Villa also offers an 8-seating indoor dining area which is conveniently located near the kitchen and serves as a link between the principal wings of the Villa.
Villa H's spectacular gourmet kitchen is a key feature of the Villa, with clean lines, smooth surfaces and simplistic quality which create a truly modern feel in its design. The kitchen boasts a gorgeous concrete-poured countertop and state-of-the-art appliances. With large glass windows covering the two external walls, it fully embraces the sunlight and garden views.
The tranquil turquoise bay at the foot of the Villa is accessed through a private path which winds its way from the Villa to two large private sea platforms. The lower platform hosts a generous shaded outdoor lounge and leads into the sea, while the upper platform is a sundeck with sun loungers.
Villa H comes staffed with a villa manager, maid and gardener. Additional services may also be arranged upon request (such as a chef and house provisioning).
One of the best beaches in Antigua, Long Bay beach, and three beach restaurants are only a short walk or a 2 minute drive away. The village of Willikies (for local provisioning) is a 5 minute drive away, while the airport and the capital, St. John's, are a 25 minute drive away.

My fiancé and I absolutely adored Villa H. The stunning location and views, the privacy, the luxury of your own private sundeck at the water's edge - simply heavenly. If you are looking relax and get away from it all, we can hardly think of a better location. We hardly ventured out save to get provisions! The villa itself is comprehensively appointed, with absolutely masses of internal and external space. Christiane is an extremely helpful host and it is clear she takes great pride in keeping the property immaculate. How we would love to be back there now!
My husband and I simply adored Villa H. We had a fabulous time, and the charm and comfort of the villa didn't let us explore much of Antigua!!! Thanks to Christiane for her care and attention to detail. Jennifer
We were looking for an "away from it all", "on the water" vacation rental in Antigua and chose Villa H, based on reviews and photo's. From the moment we walked into the front entrance, we were blown away by the view; so much glass and endless ocean views! The Villa offers many ways to enjoy the sun and sea; from the private sundeck to the easy bay access for snorkelling/swimming. The maid and gardener were freindly, professional and unobtrusive. In every way, we found the experiences at the Villa and around the island to be relaxing, memorable and beyond expectations. Our only challenge (other than driving!) was food. There were few close in restaurant choices, so plan on driving some distance -or- buying provisions for cooking at the Villa, which has a great kitchen. I must say a few words about our host, Christiane; a special lady who made our visit that much better by attending to our needs. She met us at the Villa, provided helpfull information and welcome refreshments and was always available if needed. She far exceeded her duties after we had checked out of the Villa; showing up so unexpectedly at the airport, kindle in hand, just as my wife and I realized we had left it at the Villa. Yes, she had driven across the island to make sure we had all our belongings! These absent minded travellers are grateful and impressed!
My partner and I are very fussy and particular travellers. We value extreme privacy and quiet, in truly beautiful locations, but accompanied by as much luxury as possible (no sand-floor beach-hut for us), and modernist/minimal design (can't stand touristy-vernacular kitsch). All in all, a tall order indeed! I can honestly say that Villa H. exceeded our expectations - and this has never happened to us before.
Now, as with everything, one man's dream is another man's nightmare, so you have to be clear about what you want from your holiday in Antigua before you book this stunning villa, in order to enjoy it as unreservedly as we did.
It is not on the western side of the island, where most of the bars and shops etc are; you need to drive around 20 mins before you get anywhere worth getting to (other than the immediate vicinity of the villa and the nice but quite developed Long Beach), so do not plan to use this place as a launching pad for the ultimate Touristy Antigua Tour. You must want to be in one of the most fabulously designed and furnished modernist villas you can access for this (bargain) price [I am terrified the price will go up as I write this!], with the most luxurious and comfortable interiors, several private terraces and unobstructed views, including a private (and I mean totally private) sunning deck with loungers just above the water, wherefrom you can dip into the sea (not a sandy beach, but a largely sandy, shallow bay, where you can swim forever); you must enjoy spending time there, with whomever comes with you, relaxing in a dozen different positions/loungers/sofas/terrace, and then cooking something in the truly impressive and impressively equipped kitchen (three different garlic crushers... respect!); you must be happy taking a break from lounging with a 20-30min drive across fabulously virgin tropical landscapes in your 4 wheel drive to either the capital for decent provisions, or English Harbour for a formal dinner out (wonderful Admiral's Inn - our favourite), or Half Moon Bay for the bona fide, postcard-perfect pink sand Caribbean beach, etc.
If you want to make new friends every night in a different watering hole, this place isn't for you. But if you are longing, as we do, for an experience of true luxury (which means: masses of space, immaculately designed, all mod cons, dead quiet and privacy, in gorgeous location), without being able to afford Necker Island, then look no further.
We spent 2 weeks with friends at Villa H last summer and decided to return alone this year to enjoy it all on our own! It blew us away all over again. The Villa is just breathtaking. We love the comfort, modern look, very very high ceilings, HUGE glass windows and the large private jetty. I’m not even going to mention the VIEW! It’s just the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. WE WILL BE BACK SOON! PS the pictures do not do it justice!
Villa H is a beautiful villa with an amazing view. It is private and romantic with top quality amenities and a charming and extremely thoughtful owner. She is available and more than willing to assist with any request. Did I mention the view? Just mesmerizing. Villa H is a unique contemporary two bedroom villa. The interior living area and the bedrooms are very comfortable. It is obvious that the owner has an eye for fine detail and the comfort of her guests. The entire house, but particularly the living room, has been set up for the guest to enjoy the view. It really is a wow moment when you first walk in and look to the living room and out to the water. The floor to ceiling sliding doors are fantastic and really bring the outside “into” the house. There is just a fantastic flow to the house. The outdoor couches share the wonderful view and are very comfortable. The sea platform…love the sea platform. We have traveled throughout the Caribbean quite a bit, but this feature is unusual and very cool. We enjoyed this outdoor area immensely. The villa is maintained in tip top condition and is immaculately clean. Villa H is the perfect place to get away from it all. It is located away from the hub bub of the island but is still convenient to town and a couple of good restaurants. We felt very safe and secure in this area of the island.
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone with discriminating standards. You will take away lovely memories and especially on cold days your thoughts will drift back to this beautiful place. This is a glowing but sincere review. As noted earlier, we have been traveling in the Caribbean for thirteen years now and this is only the second time that I have felt compelled to write a review for a property.
