ANTIGUA, LUXURY VILLA, SLEEPS 8, POOL, MAID

St. Paul Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8)

LIME HILL VILLA, GALLEON BEACH, ENGLISH HARBOUR, ANTIGUA, WEST INDIES, FROM JUST £67 ( $110) PER PERSON PER NIGHT.

Architect designed Lime Hill was built in traditional colonial style in 2002, and has four air conditioned double bedrooms, each of which has an equally stunning sea view. Enjoy the Infinity swimming pool, surrounded by a secluded tropical garden, or take a few minutes stroll down the hill to the beach. A spacious furnished gazebo was finished in 2014, giving additional living space coupled with truly breathtaking views over Freemans Bay and into Nelson's Dockyard, perfect for a sundowner ot two...

The villa is nestled into the hillside, situated high on the rim of gated 20 acre Galleon Beach Club, Freeman's Bay, very close to historic Nelson's Dockyard, arguably the best location on the Island, being featured on almost every Antigua brochure world wide, which usually shows a panoramic view of the whole Galleon area taken from Shirley Heights. Freeman's Bay is a beautiful quintessentially Caribbean seaside scenario, with a gently sloping white powder beach, calm clear sheltered warm water, bordered by palm trees, as shown in our photographs.

The villa's infinity swimming pool overlooks Galleon and the entrance to Nelson's Dockyard, a favourite haven for yachts of all sizes, always something to see.

On-site seasonal amenities include a beachside restaurant and bar, reception, complimentary day ferry to the Dockyard and nearby the little hamlet of Falmouth, which has a varied selection of shops and a well stocked mini-market. For your Big Shop, there are several excellent large modern supermarkets near St Johns, about 40 minutes drive away.

We are proud that Lime Hill was honoured by being awarded 'Top Vacation Rental 2012' by Flipkey, and 'Rated Excellent' by both Tripadvisor and Flipkey.

Could not have been better!

What a delightful place. Wonderful situation and immaculately clean. The villa was a few minutes walk from the beach and a great little beach bar. The owner was very helpful - giving us the name of a super car hire gentleman (Titi) and organising for the maids to get some food in for the first couple of days. Loved watching the sun go down over the harbour - just heaven. .

Lime Hill was impeccable, romantic and a pure dream.

Our visit to Antigua was Aug 3 - 12, 2007. We chose to stay at Lime Hill Villa. I cannot say enough good things about this experience.

The Villa is a gorgeous 4 bedroom home with an infinity pool.

Walking into the villa, you are surrounded by vining, flowering plants that drape the veranda upstairs. It really is breathtaking. There is also an infinity pool that is well maintained and overlooks the harbour.

All bedrooms were air conditioned. There are 3 bedrooms with either Queen or King beds and one downstairs that has 2 twins, so you can eaily sleep 8 people. Each bedroom also has its own bathroom. The master bedroom has an outdoor shower as well.

The main living space had doors that opened up the entire wall in the front and back, allowing the breeze to flow through. There are 3 dining areas; one in the house, one on the back patio and one on the front patio, near the pool, overlooking the gorgeous bay. The kitchen was well equipped. We had everything we could ever need there, including a phone and radio.

The cleaning gal came daily (except Sunday). She continuously added fresh flowers to vases all over the house. It was very private and the views are PRICELESS.

We could have stayed forever.

We stayed a week here and will definitely go back.

We give this 5 stars across the board! Worth every single penny of our hard earned (and very long saved) money! More...

Lime Hill offers the ultimate Caribbean experience.

A beautiful architect designed villa with stunning elevated views over English Harbour. With two terraces,an infinity pool and only a short walk to the beach this villa provides the ideal holiday accommodation. Located close to all local amenities including a good variety of restaurants and bars. Shirley Heights with its famous Jump Up is near by. Lime Hill is the ideal Caribbean holiday home and we look forward returning in the future.

PICTURESQUE SETTING WITH PROXIMITY TO GREAT RESTAURANTS

  • 5 of 5
Gorgeous villa overlooking a picturesque bay, in proximity to Nelson's Dockyards and many great restaurants. The views of the bay in the morning and at sunset are unforgettable. You are sure to enjoy your stay here, however, please be sure to bring tons of bug spray, as the local mosquitoes are ferocious, and rent a 4x4 vehicle as the driveway is very steep and a lesser vehicle might not have the oomph. The owner is attentive and fair. Overall, highly recommended.

BLISS

  • 5 of 5
I've just spent 11 nights at Lime Hill with my three children aged 14, 11 and 6 (sadly my husband couldn't come at the last minute). We had the most wonderful stay. Each bedroom is spacious with good beds and nice bedlinen. The mosquito nets work well and the aircon and fans keep the rooms cool. The sitting room is very comfortable with good deep sofa's. In the warm evenings we often sat in there, and with the glass sliding doors open and the fans on, we found the temperature quite pleasant. Although I enjoy some aircon in the bedrooms at the beginning of the night, I do like to be in the warmth and enjoying the natural air and listening to the sea. The door opens on both sides of the room creating a virtual 'outside' space, but with the benefit of the breeze and the fans. The villa has a number of different outside seating areas also to relax. Two bedrooms have private terraces and there is a table and bbq and loungers in the garden behind the villa, as well as a table and chairs and more loungers on the terraces either side of the pool. The view of the sun setting each night is breathtaking. The kitchen was adequately stocked, with a large fridge and constant cold filtered water and ice being a real boost. The housekeeping ladies came daily and did a thorough villa clean and change of bed linen and towels.
It is only a short walk down to Galleon Beach which was idyllic and shared with 'The Inn at English Harbour' - except they pay over $1000 per room per night for the same privilege!
There are some very nice restaurants locally in English Harbour and Nelsons Dockyard, and the boys did their PADI open water diver course, as well as deep sea fishing, swimming with stingrays, and more than one trip to visit the local donkey sanctuary to adopt donkeys! The supermarkets are adequate if you keep your eye on what's comes in fresh daily, and we did a trip to Jolly Harbour for a more modern supermarket (and a cashpoint).
I would definitely recommend Lime Hill to anyone wanting a villa holiday, and would happily return with my family or with friends. I wouldn't recommend the villa for anyone unable to climb steps or walk up a steepish short incline from the lane to the villa , although the car managed fine if you changed down to 2nd gear. All around a very successful holiday which was very good value in comparison with like advertised properties.

SOME POSITIVES, BUT OVERALL VERY DISAPPOINTING

  • 2 of 5
We only lasted 3 nights out of a planned (and paid for) 7, before moving over to a resort on the Island. The written descriptions of the house don't thoroughly cover every aspect, and hide a few major drawbacks. It says "A/C in bedrooms" but neglects to include the word "only" as a qualifier. The main living room, with kitchen, dining area, TV area, and entertaining/reading room had no A/C at all, and it badly needed it. It was sweltering, even with the windows wide open (which let in mosquitos, even with the screens up). Now, it could be that we should have INFERRED that there was no A/C other than in the bedrooms from how it was written, but we didn't, and I think it should be more explicit. Also, the area where the house is is occupied with very dilapidated houses, and the driveway up to Lime Hill was so incredibly steep that it's exceedingly difficult to walk, and even to drive when it's rained. There are many positives about the house- to be fair- including such touches as "Lime Hill" emblazoned robes in the closets- but it did not suit our needs at all, and I found not mentioning either the lack of A/C or the ridiculously steep pitch of the driveway to be a bit dishonest on the owner's part.

Owner's Response: I was saddened and concerned to read Mr Salinger’s review, which is unjustified and inaccurate.
Prior to booking, he asked me numerous detailed questions, but omitted the most important: Sadly, one of his party had special needs, and could not take heat, and another was disabled and needed help to walk.
I have great sympathy with his circumstances but he never made me aware of them.

Had he initially asked if the villa was suitable for disabled people, I would have said no.

These disabilities relate specifically to members of his party, and are in no way faults attributable to Lime Hill.

Just prior to his return home, he emailed me, and I quote:-

“If you can see your way to returning any small portion of the rental fee it would of course be GREATLY appreciated, and I would then sing your praises to all the internet gods!”

I do not think it right to either offer or receive payment for a good review. Also, the implication was that if I did not refund him, he would give Lime Hill a bad review, which in the event, he has now done. This casts obvious doubt on the value and integrity of his review.

I have been renting Lime Hill for ten years now, and have never had a complaint about the drive, or the lounge being too hot, indeed with the large sliding doors open on both sides, it catches the gentle trade winds. Additionally, there are several very effective fans, making it pleasantly cool.

I therefore totally refute his comments, and would ask you to draw your own conclusions.
