THE TROPICAL DREAM

St. Paul Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom with a queen bed & a twin bed/sofa,1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-3)

Lush Tropical Setting

Bamboo Cottage is for nature lovers, set in a lush garden within a five minute walk to the sea. The cottage is nestled among palms and clusters of tall bamboo. Adding to the tranquillity, as the sway and rustle of these trees make music in the Caribbean breeze.

The Cottage is on two levels, the large verandah entrance leads into the open plan kitchen and living area which is well stocked, an island wth a gas range, a convection oven and microwave for cooking. Also an additional shower is located on the verandah for

your return from the beach or the pool. A spiral staircase goes up to the bedroom with an 'open plan bathroom' . Also another verandah off the bedroom which looks thru the bamboo out to sea

and the yachts in Falmouth Harbour.

Falmouth Harbour is the centre of the yachting industry in Antigua & Barbuda. This is on the southwestern side of the island and is the home of the internationally famous Classic Regatta followed by Antigua Sailing Week. Also a five minute drive to the beautiful Pidgeon Beach, Shirley Heights Lookout (Antigua's National Park) and Historic Nelson's Dockyard.

Bamboo House apartment #262413 is also available. Please see listing for details.

Bamboo Garden: The owner lives on the upper floor of Bamboo House, which is on the other side of the property from the cottage, However the property has been cleverly designed to give everyone their own access and privacy, while having the security of knowing there is someone around should you need any assistance.

The property has a very romantic and relaxed feeling and an ideal place to just sit back and enjoy, also a good base from which to do your exploring of the island.

Keywords: Garden, lush, warm, cozy, romantic, comfortable, countryside, peaceful, tropical, home, quiet, tranquil, cottage.

Joanne, your host is a Canadian who has been living in Antigua for the past 24 years. She is an avid gardener and the property reflects this. Another of Joanne's passion is food, for over 12 years she ran a restaurant she started in the harbour. Having sold the restaurant she now turns her attention to the maintenance of her garden and the operation of a Farmer's Market. Want to feel at home, Joanne is your best host!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009

I had the cottage built in 2009 in my garden as I think it is a very beautiful place and wanted to share it with others.

The sound of the birds singing during the day and the tree frogs in the evening add to swimming tin the pool that is surrounded by bamboo and palm trees and is even more beautiful in the evening in the bath temperture water and the star clustered skies.

The cottage, the setting, the beaches, the town and most of all Joanne were absolutely perfect! We have been to many tropical vacations but we both agreed this was the best vacation we have ever had! Thank you so much Joanne for sharing the Bamboo cottage with us!

TROPICAL PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
It is difficult not to repeat the sentiments of previous reviews. We had a wonderful 10 days at Bamboo cottage. As soon as you open the gates you are in your own secluded bit of paradise. This was our first time visiting the Caribbean and we felt fortunate to have stayed in this ideal location. Joanne is so helpful and a fantastic host. The information she share allowed us to fully appreciate the island in the time we had. As other people have mentioned, a car is a must and preferably a 4x4 to experience the whole island. Thank you Joanne for sharing your home with us.

Upon our arrival we were met at the airport by Titi, our car rental company, and they escorted us to the cottage. We were met at the cottage by Shinise, with Joanne arriving shortly after. They showed us around the cottage and the rest of the property. This was our first time to Antigua and Joanne was very helpful with driving routes for the best beaches and scenic places and made recommendations for some great restaurants. The cottage has a cooler, umbrella, towels and chairs to take with you on your day trips (most beaches have limited or no services). We especially enjoyed the veranda for relaxing and
watching the banana quicks, humming birds and geckos at the feeder. If you're renting a car, a gps is recommended, although all the locals were very friendly and quick to offer directions! Some our favourite places were Long Beach, Rendezvous Beach, and seeing the amazing power of the sea at Devils Bridge. Our top pick for supper was the BBQ at The Copper and Lumber Store in Nelson's Dockyard Friday night. Shirley Heights was also a great spot for supper, sunset watching and great local music. The historical sites were also definitely worth visiting, very interesting. There are so many more places to discover on this beautiful island, we can't wait to come back! Thank you Joanne for your warm hospitality, you helped make our vacation a memorable one.

PERFECT PLACE, PERFECT LOCATION...

  • 5 of 5
Bamboo Cottage is the perfect place to stay on a trip to Antigua. The description is accurate but, of course, cannot really convey the stylish laid-back feel of the place. The Cottage is very well appointed and equipped and the pool is terrific; all beautifully set amidst tropical foliage. Everything is well-maintained and clean. Really excellent, comfortable accommodation with generous verandah for eating, relaxing and bird watching (don't forget to top the humming bird feeders!).

Joanne is a terrific host, attentive but not at all intrusive; she knows the island really well so is a great source of information.

The location of the Cottage is perfect for local amenities (well-stocked supermarket, terrific bakery) and is a short drive from historic English Harbour and a great range of bars and restauants. We particularly enjoyed the two restaurants at the Antigua Slipway and nearby Catherine's Cafe for 'treats' and any number of lively local places for the buzzing island vibe.

Antigua is small but very rewarding, definitely worth some research to pick out places of historical interest some great views, as well as quiet spectacular beaches. Our greatest pleasure, however, was just to get out and about around the island and see how people live and to enjoy being amongst the friendliest folk you are likely to come across. We rented a 4WD and were glad we did as some of the village roads can be a bit rough. Sign posting is abysmal but don't worry, there is always someone who will put you on the right track. Drivers will even pull up and get out of their cars to help you if they think you need it!

We also enjoyed a helicopter flight over Monserrat, spectacular flight and fascinating to see the island slowly recovering from the devastating volcanic eruption.

We certainly recommend Bamboo Cottage as a great place to stay on the island - we couldn't fault it.

HONEYMOON IN THE REAL ANTIGUA!

  • 5 of 5
The Bamboo cottage was exactly what we were hoping for on our honeymoon. We were actually in Antigua from Sept 26-Oct 8th with 11 of those 14 days staying in the cottage, the last 3 nights we stayed at an all inclusive resort and we can not express how disappointed we were we did not stay longer in the cottage. Honestly, can't express how much more we enjoyed the cottage! It was hard to leave. It provided the perfect balance of romantic seclusion and local flare for us. We loved every aspect, really felt right at home. There is not much more I can say that hasn't already been said in other comments; beaches AMAZING, cottage AWESOME, restaurants DELICIOUS, bars so much FUN, and Joanne, well she really is INCREDIBLE, most hospitable hostess and all around wonderful human being. We feel blessed to have met her. Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven, hope to return soon! Cheers, J&C
