We have lived in Antigua for 33 years. Our children grew up here, with the sea playing a huge role in their lives.
This is one of the nicest areas on the island, with cooling breezes, green hillsides and occasional villages. We are in a quiet situation, offering a peaceful sojourn for our guests. A sunset drink around the pool followed by dinner al fresco is a most enjoyable way to end your days.
We have a our own swimming pool, with a standard depth of 4'8" - no diving 27 ft long and 14ft wide. It is set in one and a half acres of private mature gardens, with wonderful sea views on three sides. This eastern side of Antigua is cool with sunset views on the western side of the property. Ideal for pool and lunch parties at the dining table on the pool verandah. We have also very successfully held weddings here, and Antigua is a noted 'wedding' destination. There is a great deal of yachting acitivity on the island and the last week in April is given over to Antigua Sailing Week, attended by some of the wor ld's most famous yachts. We are about 15 minutes drive from English Harbour where the yachts moor, and during the winter months an evening drive there to see the moored yachts and to have dinner at one of the many good restaurants in the area is a wonderful way to spend an evening. For the more adventurous it is possible to hire small rental yachts for a day's sailing. There are several good round-the-island day tours both by car and boat, well worth taking. Deep sea fishing, para-sailing, scuba diving, golf are a few of the pastimes on offer. There is a very good boat eco-tour on offer from Antigua Adventures - not only is it a good sight-seeing experience but it offers a wealth of information about the island, the sea, and all the creatures in it. There are two duty free shopping areas in St. John's with good clothing jewellery lines available. The first is Heritage Quay, and the second Redcliffe Quay, which is a little colony of traditional style Antigua buildings housing the various shops. There is also a pony club, situated near to English Harbour.
It is possible to access most popular outdoor activities in Antigua.
