The house covers over 7,000 sq ft of both indoor and outdoor living space. The immense and well kept garden, which runs all the way down to the sea, flourishes with an array of tropical plants and palm trees. Shady pergolas on both the east and west sides of the villa provide the perfect spot for some afternoon reading away from the intense sun. Sunrise and Sunset views are a bonus of this east/west facing home.
As you enter this home you will be taken aback by the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, the glassy bay, the nearby uninhabited smaller islands, reefs and the unspoilt greenery in the distance. Designed to harmonise with the environment, the villa allows you to become one with nature as a large veranda that extends the length of the house connects all the rooms and offers the experience of indoor/outdoor living every step of the way. On the extended veranda is a court yard style garden, separate seating areas and the infinity edged pool.
Bedrooms 1 & 2: All bedrooms are en-suite and have ceiling fans, although the area enjoys constant breeze. The first and second bedrooms are on the right of the main entrance to the villa. Bedroom 1 is furnished with a four poster queen size bed, night stands with lamps and a spacious walk-in closet. The bathroom is furnished with top quality bathroom fittings and an open air shower. The second en-suite bedroom is located close to the first but with ample space between rooms for privacy. These two rooms also have between them a linen closet / storage room. The second bedroom is fitted with a king size metal frame bed, night stands with lamps and a spacious walk-in closet. The bathroom is identical to that of bedroom one.
All of the four en-suite bathrooms are identical in character; they are all very large with open roof showers covered by a mesh.
Dining and living area: Returning to the main entrance of the villa, a stroll under the covered veranda leads to the kitchen, dining and living area whilst walking past the court yard style garden and pool. Although the kitchen and the dining and living areas are separate, there is a feel of uniformity between the rooms similar to that of an open floor concept.
The living room is tastefully furnished with imported Italian sofas, side tables with lamps, a coffee table, television cabinet and other elite tasteful pieces. The dining area is furnished with a hand crafted rustic wooden dining table with two rustic wooden benches and traditional chairs placed at the short ends. The living and indoor dining area have custom made folding wooden doors to allow the house to be kept fully open on both sides or closed for privacy as one chooses.
Bedrooms 3 & 4: The kitchen is just few steps away; it is fitted with professional grade stainless steel appliances including a double door refrigerator, five burner stove, convectional oven, microwave oven and dish washer and other small appliances. The cabinets are Italian and are pure white in colour and topped with marble which was carefully chosen to enhance the space. A large island unit with butchers block adorns the kitchen and includes stools for enjoying casual breakfast or coffee. Adjoining the kitchen is a large pantry.
Further down the large veranda from the living area is the master suite which is accessible from both sides of the Villa. This room has a king size four poster bed, night stands with lamps, lounge chair, walk-in closet and other delicate touches. The bathroom compliments this room as it is decorated with white vanity, walk-in open roof shower and other elegant touches.
A little further is the last bedroom; this room is perfect for children or two sharing.
This home is by far the best vacation home we have enjoyed over the years. My wife and I completed a 4-week stay in this well equipped and comfortable home. Private and peaceful, this home is a perfect blend of open air living with modern conveniences. Whether it was sunrise morning coffee on a shaded lanai with views of the ocean, lunch on the covered side of the pool, or big sky sunsets on the swing overlooking the water, this house provided memories that endure. The clean modern kitchen has appliances that are equal to what we have at home which made cooking enjoyable. Beds are comfortable and the huge open air showers gave it a warm tropical experience. Although it was just my wife and myself with a short visit from our daughter, I think larger groups would appreciate the privacy for each room that the 'Long House' offers. Mossy was wonderful. She met us at the airport and made sure the home was always in working order. Especially important was the housekeeper, Voice Eve. She not only kept the home immaculate but she also has a sweet and open personality.
With so many choices to stay in the world, I would recommend that you not hesitate to enjoy this home as the perfect setting for your stay in Antigua.
The Long House is luxurious with wonderful views and all mid cons.
We have just spent two weeks there and had a great time. Nick and Mossy were very helpful all the way through and Voice Eve looked after us so well she was a delight. All we wanted was a place to relax and chill out and The Long House was prefect for that ..
It's going to take us a while to get back to the pace of things In the UK I think !!
This was our third trip to Antigua and the first to stay in this part of the island. We were grateful to Mossy for showing us the nearest supermarket to stock up on provisions. A car is essential as the location of the villa is quite remote...
But what a location!! We were blown away by the beautiful view and couldn't believe our luck every morning when we woke up to it. The bedrooms all look out to the ocean and every room is spacious with lovely en suite shower rooms. Our four children loved the space, the pool and the many different areas to sit, inside and out. The kitchen was very well equipped and Voice Eve was charming and helpful. We loved it so much we booked again immediately for another fortnight in 2015.
The Long House is one the most most relaxing places to stay we have ever been to and dealing with the owners was a delight.
The Long House is a beautiful property in a stunning location. Designed and built to maximise the outside space and the views over the gorgeous lagoon. The layout of the property is such that the living room and kitchen form the centre space with rooms off either side. This could be a problem if you have a young family with many small children they may feel too far away from mum&dad. On the plus side if you are two families sharing or have older kids it affords a great sense of space and gives everyone room to find a quiet moment. We went as a family of four so just had loads of room to move around!
The pool is gorgeous and the the coloured lights are a bonus for the kids. The kitchen is well stocked. The cleaner was helpful and flexible in our arrangements.
The only slight disappointment was that we couldn't easily get down to the lagoon - but perhaps that was more of a misunderstanding on my part. The lead image had led me to think the pier was accessible from the house in some way.
The owners were also great - answering emails and making our stay relaxed and enjoyable.
Overall. We all loved what is a stunning house in a beautiful and quiet part of Antigua.
If in need of a rest in the most beautiful surroundings, then this is the place.
we stayed for just under two weeks, but could easy have stayed longer. The house is very welcoming whilst at the same time beautifully decorated and done to a very high standard.
The views are incredible, with easy access (by car) to beaches and stingray city (a must).
Mossy was more than accomodating and happy to assist when we had any problems, and would 100% want to return.
Three weeks of peaceful luxury in the tranquility of rural Antigua. Breathtaking Caribbean sea views surround the beautiful long house. An inviting infinity pool is the perfect place to cool down, float on a lilo or if feeling energetic swim. The modern house is fitted out in a contemporary but comfortable style with every modern convenience you could need. The full length folding doors on either side of the lounge keep a cooling breeze flowing through the house. The bedrooms have comfortable beds with the master having a useful mosquito net and walk in dressing rooms and showers in all bedrooms add a touch of luxury. Voice-eve looked after us while we were at the house, fitting in with what we wanted without ever intruding. The magnificent beaches - half moon bay and Turners beach being our favourites with fine white sand and gin clear blue waters make you feel like you are in paradise! A Sunday night at Shirley heights for steele band, reggae music and BBQ is a must do. Eat out at one of the fine restaurants, a beach side cafe or eat at the house and watch the brown pelicans diving for their dinner, listening to the laughing seagulls. Sigh.... It doesn't get any better than this. Thank you to Sammy, Nick and Mossey for all of your help and expert advice.
Welcome to The Long House!
This newly constructed home is located on the eastern side of the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua, very close to a small village of typical Antiguan character, named Willikies. The Villa is built within 1.4 acres on a picturesque peninsula and enjoys breathtaking and tranquil panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the nearby bays on both sides.
The location of the villa is on the more peaceful, less populated and unspoiled east side of the island within the Peninsula development, and since Antigua boasts a plethora (over 300) of beaches it is an ideal base to rest and relax after exploring the natural beauties of the island or just “stay at home” and enjoy the tranquillity The Long House offers. The world renowned beach at Half Moon Bay is about a 20 minute drive with the nearest large beach Long Bay being about a10 minute drive away. Devils Bridge and the lush Fig tree drive are all within 15 minute drive as well.
