Beyond Lovely

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Starr House following a destination wedding on Nevis and were in somewhat desperate need of downtime. Starr House was absolutely the perfect place for that. The home is bright, airy, well appointed and spotless. The views of Falmouth Bay (and the start of the AYC Round The Island Race!) were fabulous. We lived outside - on the spacious deck and in the pool. The owner and the property manager were excellent to deal with. You won’t be disappointed by this lovely sanctuary.

Escape to Antigua - hope to return soon!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned home following a very nice week in Antigua. We love this place! It’s a great location with incredible views. Everything about the place is very user friendly and it's very well appointed and equipped. We've stayed in lots of Villas throughout the Islands, and this one ranks right up there with the best. Cheers!

Fabulous Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Starr House in mid-November. We were greeted by the manager who had placed fresh cut flowers, which was a wonderful way to start our visit. She showed us around the house and all of the amenities, and was very pleasant and helpful. The house had everything that we needed, including a kitchen stocked very well with plates and cutlery and everything else that we needed. Nothing was lacking. The bed is more than comfortable and my wife loved the shower and bathroom area.

We, however, spent the vast majority of time outside on the beautiful deck next to the very private pool. There is plenty of seating and the view of Falmouth Harbor is fantastic. The pool has colorful lights that you can turn on at night that provide an excellent ambience. There is more than enough seating and the chairs are comfortable. The main bedroom doors open up onto the deck, providing a wonderful view from the bedroom and adding convenience in its location. The house doors and can be secured with latches providing a wonderful breeze to the house. Air conditioning is not needed and would not be used.

The location is excellent as well. Not only is the view of Falmouth Harbor wonderful, but the proximity to English Harbor is very convenient. Just a few minutes down the road from the house is a small grocery that had everything that we needed. You can get plenty of food, drinks, and ice at surprisingly very reasonable prices. There are more restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive than are needed. Waterfront dining can be found within a 2-3 minute drive.

We also did a lot of beach hopping and the highlight of our trip was the helicopter tour of Montserrat.....we highly recommend it.

Our experience was excellent and we had no issues whatsoever. Communication with the owners before the visit very helpful and they provided a great amount of information in a very timely fashion. We have traveled throughout most of the Caribbean and our experience was superior. I highly recommend, without hesitation, this house for travelers to Antigua.

Lovely house on incredable Antigua

  • 4 of 5

Starr house is a lovely unpretentious tasteful villa with a lovely view of the harbour which with the pool in front is quite spectacular

We found the position of the villa really good to visit all of the places and beaches we wanted to see of which we did many. For those who like horse riding the stables are at the end of the road. We went to randevous bay from the stables in a jeep , hair raising but the beach is gorgeous.

The people of Antigua are the nicest friendliest people I have ever met.

Didn't like the mosquitoes! Who does. We found by closing the doors at dusk and dawn and closing the shutters kept them out but there were mosquitoes in the area upstairs (we never went up there) there are mosquito nets over the beds. Personally we found the heat too much without air con. There was an extra fan put in for us but still!

All in all Starr house is a lovely place to stay feel lucky indeed just great!

Villa Perfection

Starr House was the best villa that we have stayed at, in the Caribbean by a long way. Villa was comfortable, well maintained, spacious and with a fabulous location and great views. Communication with Nicky and the on island rental agents, was quick and easy. Would highly recommend this villa.

The property was very nice and in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The property was fresh, neat, clean, and nicely appointed. The location took advantage of the gorgeous views of the hills and the harbor. The pool and outdoor dining areas were our favorite places to be. The louvered doors and windows allowed the breezes to circulate throughout the house. We were a short drive from multiple dining possibilities in the harbor vicinity. Our only challenge was the restricted water supply, but we managed to conserve.

Owner's Response: Dear Denise Thanks for your review. I was sorry to hear you felt restricted on water, perhaps a misunderstanding as we have a 30,000 litre water tank under the house which has been overflowing due to the lovely regular rain the island has been getting last month and this. I glad to hear it didn't spoil you stay though and that you enjoyed your stay , hopefully we can have you back again sometime, Nicky

Situated on Rose Hill, the Starr House is nestled amongst privately owned villas and adjacent to the local village. The house is a short 5 minute drive to the two lovely swimming beaches, Pigeon and Galleon, historic Nelson's Dockyard and the restaurants and amenities of English and Falmouth Harbours.

Learn to sail with On Deck, play tennis at Temos or visit the spa at the Yacht Club Marina Resort.

Hike the goat track at early morning then spend the day on the beach taking in lunch at Roxy's.

Grab a gelato and stroll along the dock to see superyachts of the world.

Hike or take a horse trek to the deserted Rendezvous beach.

Visit Shirley Heights at sunset for Reggae and later enjoy one of the many fine restaurants, maybe finishing at Abracadabras for late night dancing.

This is the perfect spot to get involved with Falmouth life or alternatively, view the yachting world from afar in a relaxed cool setting.
