Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Villa Azura occupies approximately 1.5 acres of very private land on the east coast of Antigua, surrounded by a tropical garden and trees. The property is on a small cliff with wonderful views of the ocean from every room. The views are spectacular, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean all the way to Africa to the east, Great Bird Island to the North, and all of Antigua to the west.

Azura is a single storey building with a roof terrace on which to enjoy the sunsets with a cocktail in your hand, followed by the wonderful night sky and stars. The house is designed to be as open as possible to catch the breezes and enjoy the views. The 3 bedrooms all have unique four poster airconditioned beds which allow for the guests to sleep in cooled comfort whilst still keeping the window louvers open. Two of the bedrooms have interconnecting doors and one has twin beds which can be pushed together to make a kingsize bed. All the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with outdoor rainshowers. All rooms have ceiling fans and mosquito screens on door and window louvers.

The swimming pool has a great infinity edge and overlooks the ocean with a wonderful view up the north east coast towards Great Bird Island the the North Sound. There is a gazebo with a large day bed and chairs to relax with a book in the shade and enjoy the views. The bird life is wonderful.

There is maid service 5 times a week, and a house manager who will see you into the house and explain everything. Should you want a cook or chef that can usually be arranged, as well as house provisioning prior to arrival. Car rental is essential on the island.

Why Amanda Neal chose Antigua

We love the east coast of Antigua for its peace and quiet and wonderful views.

What makes this villa unique

Peace and quiet and privacy. Perfect for a family vacation with a great beach within walking distance or for a group of friends looking for a relaxing vacation. Amazing 360 degree views from the roof terrace whilst watching the sunset with a rum punch in your hand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perched at the end of a bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea with one of Antigua's best beaches and snorkelling reefs only 800m away. Amazing views over to Bird Island. Quiet, private but not secluded (the French consulate residence is across the road) and cooled by a fresh sea breeze that takes the edge off the heat.

Everything works, great BBQ area, the pool gets cleaned like clockwork and Mitzie (housekeeper) and Titus (maintenance and garden) are friendly and professional.

We used the services of Norma to cook for us for our first night as we knew we were arriving late. Her food was excellent especially the bread pudding and rum sauce.

We're planning our return...

Amazing Home with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. We just got back from spending a wonderful week in this amazing house. The property was is absolutely beautiful with beautiful gardens and an amazing pool. The house design was well thought out and very beautiful. We especially loved the outdoor showers! The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare dinner when we weren't going out for dinner. We really enjoyed Mitzie who took great care of us and Titus who takes care of the beautiful gardens. I can't say enough about this wonderful house. The weather was perfect with the winds; we didn't need air conditioning. The air conditioned beds were very comfortable - they kept us nice and cool but with no sound and no feeling of cold blowing on you. I would highly recommend this vacation home and hope to return again for another vacation. Thank you for opening up your amazing home for others to enjoy!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family (seven people across three generations) spent the week from Xmas Eve to New Year's Eve at Villa Azura. It was a fantastic holiday. Azura is a perfect house with an amazing layout for relaxing and enjoying an indoor/outdoor life. The walls of the house seem to disappear upon request. We enjoyed all of the amenities of a modern house while feeling as if we were outside/poolside the entire time. Azura is perfectly equipped and thoughtfully designed and supplied. Mitzie (the housekeeper) was very friendly and attentive. The location is fantastic, although a bit remote from the "hot spots" on the island (it may be something of a stretch to consider Antigua to have "hot spots" in the nature of Mexico or Hawai'i). We made frequent trips to Half Moon Bay (our favorite beach in Antigua), which is about a 25-minute drive. We also went into English Harbor for a few meals - also about 25-30 minutes drive. The east (Atlantic) side of Antigua seemed a bit more breezy, but that just kept the bugs away. All in all, we could not have been more pleased with our holiday and Amanda and James were fantastic hosts. A few observations from our trip - you need a car, but don't make it a nice one, as the roads on Antigua are brutal. A sailing charter on the Caribbean side is a terrific day out - we booked the Jabberwocky in Jolly Harbour and had the boat to ourselves with the husband/wife crew - just amazing. We would highly recommend Villa Azura and Antigua for anyone who is happy with a holiday that is not centered around a "commercial" nightlife.

Beautiful home with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent an amazing week at Villa Azura from Dec 17th to the 24th. The home was perfect for our family, as it had plenty of room for the six of us. The home had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Mitzie, the housekeeper, took very good care of us and made sure we had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well equipped so we enjoyed most of our meals "at home". Although the Epicurean was a distance, the grocery store was like shopping in the states, so that made cooking easy. The air conditioned beds were amazing, and made sleeping perfect. Lots of places to gather with everyone, and plenty of spots to have quiet time and read a book.

While we were in Antigua, we chartered the Cool Cat, a catamaran for the day. Making it nice to spend time on the Caribbean side of the island. We also took the quick trip over to Devil's Bridge (where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean). If you are up for some water fun, I suggest the Dboat. We had a great time, lots of laughs and water park fun.

Amazing house for an amazing vacation!!!

A fabulous property in Antigua, Amanda Neal terrific Host/Owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two boys 12 and 15 stayed at Villa Azura for a week in the off season, (June 2016). This property is positioned north on a peninsula tip facing Long Bay. This is the windward side of the island and there is a constant breeze from the East. This differs greatly from the leeward side of the island which we dont like. The wind and the constant crashing of the waves is comfortable and soothing. The view is unobstructed ocean with waves.

The home is fabulous. Adobe design, simple, and well laid out. It is well maintained and we had no maintenance troubles. There is a gardener/handyman to help with any problem if it were to arise and when there was a storm with a power outage, he phoned to make sure the generator had started properly. It had and I didn't even know the power had gone out! Each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom with a really cool private outdoor garden shower. Each bedroom has perfect ocean views. We spent most of our time on the deck surrounding the pool. There is a covered patio portion with seating and a usual uncovered pool deck with loungers. The dining area is outdoors in the covered patio portion facing a manicured and landscaped garden that is beautiful. The house is not airconditioned but the beds are. My pet peeve in the caribbean is cool dry sleeping after a long hot wet and sticky day. I was unfamiliar with these beds prior to our trip but they work great. They allow you to have a cool air conditioned breeze on you while having all the doors and windows open to the sounds. The breeze through the open house during the day kept it unusually cool and comfortable, no need for anything else. The housekeeper Mitzie came daily to tidy up, make the beds and washed and folded our daily laundry. She was terrific. One highlight our luxurious living at Azura was having Norma take care of our food needs. She works at a local Private Club (mill reef club) usually but was able to take care of us as well in the off season. She provisioned the house prior to our arrival. She came around 7:30AM, cooked breakfast, cleaned up, discussed dinner plans and menu choices then returned at 6:30PM to cook, serve and clean up. Fare was usual caribbean, seafood, chicken, and local. My wife's menu was vegetarian and perfect for her. Activities: Indigo Divers, Cool Cat for private day sail, snorkel and lunch, Antigua rainforest zip line.

Car rental a must: TiTi in english harbor has good vehicles.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Azura. The house was everything if not more than we expected. Be sure to rent a car and our advice is have Norma cook at least for your arrival as the stores are quite some distance away.

The ultimate relaxation villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Villa Azura and loved every minute. The infinite views, fresh food, beautiful rooms and divine pool are something that will be hard to forget. The staff were so welcoming and quick to share their local know-how's. This is a villa that offers total serenity on the Atlantic coast, you're close to stunning half moon bay and a local beach with its bone-white sand and Bombay sapphire waters just 10 minutes away what more could you ask for? A truly special holiday destination.
