Overview

St. Paul Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage on 2 levels with a ocean view from the bedroom balcony

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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose St. Paul

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

wonderful hideway

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience the real Antigua, then the Bamboo Cottage is for you. Joanne is a fantastic host. She met us on arrival with a platter of light snacks. Well appreciated since our flight was 2 hours late! All the beaches and restaurants she mentioned were worth the trip. The cottage is very romantic with the tree frogs at night and finches during the day. Having your own private pool cannot be beaten. Using Titi car rental as recommended is worth it as finding the Cottage the first time would be a challenge due to lack of street signs.

Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Due to our work schedules, we planned our trip to Antigua several months in advance. After months of anticipation, we finally got to the Bamboo Cottage in Falmouth Harbor. To be clear up front: the vacation was better than we could have ever imagined. From the beginning, Joanne was there to welcome us to the cottage and the island. Joanne knows everything. Don't hesitate to ask her questions about what to do, where to go, where to eat, etc. (I didn't and spent a day driving around the island, lost, like an idiot). The cottage is secluded and very quite, and equipped with all the amenities that you will need. I will recommend this cottage to anybody that is wanting to go to Antigua and would stay there again if I ever travel back.

Perfect for a getaway, honeymoon and holiday

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, we need to sincerely thank Joanne for allowing people to enjoy her slice of absolute heaven. The little cottage is brilliantly located, with just about every amenity you could need available.

We'll split this review into two...first about the Cottage itself, and then about Joanne, who deserves a gold medal as a wonderful host. If you don't read through to the end, just know that this place is ideal, and Joanne is a great host that allows your space whilst remaining available for anything you need. Her cottage provided us with the best honeymoon imaginable and the best holiday we've been on ever!

My new wife and I stayed at the Cottage from Dec 14th-22nd and were absolutely blown away with the cottage and Antigua.

The cottage is cozy and well furnished, extremely well decorated and comfortable. The location is excellent, just a short drive away from beaches, supermarkets, Nelson's dockyard, Shirley Heights, etc. The swimming pool is wonderful after a long day at the beach or hiking. The kitchen and bedroom are fully kitted with just about anything you need, and we really enjoyed grilling with the traditional Antiguan bbq in the garden. The garden is simply beautiful and you can tell that Joanne really cares about its upkeep..

Joanne was incredibly helpful from even before the trip began, recommending a good rental-car company and giving us general tips. Once there, we were blown away with her hospitality, excellent tips and advice (not your average tips either, we got fresh fish from the local fisherman thanks to Joanne's info!). We were pleased to see that, having arrived on Sunday when most stores are closed, she had left some fruit, snacks and event a few beers in the fridge! During the week she also got us some veggies directly from the farmers in the island. All in all, Joanne was the ideal host, full of ideas and tips, and always available to help whilst allowing us to enjoy the peace of the place and our honeymoon.

It goes without saying that, not only do we 100% recommend a stay at the Cottage, but we will definitely be back!

Thanks again, Joanne!

Couldn't have wished for any more

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, tired and hot from the flight and greeted by Jo with fridge-chilled punch and a very welcome plate of food for dinner (meaning no need to organise a trip to the shop until the next day) we could tell this would be good. Hummingbirds from the hammock; fresh fish from the harbour grilled in the back yard; advice when we needed it; privacy when we wanted that; a beautiful midnight swim in the pool at full moon. Am really wonderful place to stay and we could not recommend the cottage highly enough. Go and stay there.

A hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 9-nights of our honeymoon staying at the delightful Bamboo Cottage. The cottage itself has been designed and decorated with the noticeable care and attention of a justifiably proud owner. The grounds in which the cottage is situated are beautifully maintained, with the impressive garden attracting a whole host of the local bird life. Indeed, it is difficult to think of many better ways to start a day than by enjoying the early morning sun on the front porch of Bamboo Cottage, before taking a dip in the immaculate pool. Last, but by no means least, the owner, Joanne, is a wonderful hostess with a wealth of knowledge about the island, its amenities and various attractions. During our stay, Joanne went out of her of way to inform and assist - seemingly nothing is too much trouble and Joanne has a wonderful knack of making you feel so very well cared for, whilst also allowing guests to enjoy the privacy and tranquility of the cottage. We left the island very much hoping to return one day soon to once again enjoy Bamboo Cottage and the superb hospitality of Joanne.

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!
