Villa H is located on the unspoiled east coast of the island of Antigua, one of the most exclusive destinations in the Caribbean. Standing atop a slightly elevated headland on the edge of (and with private access to) a tranquil coral reef-protected turquoise bay, the Villa has a commanding panoramic view of the Indian Town National Park promontory, a protected area of exceptional natural beauty, and the infinite horizon of the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
Villa H is a spacious and stunning contemporary 2 bedroom property with a fresh, chic and modern look. With large open and light-filled spaces, high ceilings, floor to ceiling glass windows and doors, the Villa cleverly embraces the beauty of its unique outdoor environment while providing total comfort.
Villa H offers a 10-seating outdoor dining verandah which includes a two-meter custom-made barbecue and direct access to a sunken al fresco daybed-lounge. The Villa also offers an 8-seating indoor dining area which is conveniently located near the kitchen and serves as a link between the principal wings of the Villa.
Villa H's spectacular gourmet kitchen is a key feature of the Villa, with clean lines, smooth surfaces and simplistic quality which create a truly modern feel in its design. The kitchen boasts a gorgeous concrete-poured countertop and state-of-the-art appliances. With large glass windows covering the two external walls, it fully embraces the sunlight and garden views.
The tranquil turquoise bay at the foot of the Villa is accessed through a private path which winds its way from the Villa to two large private sea platforms. The lower platform hosts a generous shaded outdoor lounge and leads into the sea, while the upper platform is a sundeck with sun loungers.
Villa H comes staffed with a villa manager, maid and gardener. Additional services may also be arranged upon request (such as a chef and house provisioning).
One of the best beaches in Antigua, Long Bay beach, and three beach restaurants are only a short walk or a 2 minute drive away. The village of Willikies (for local provisioning) is a 5 minute drive away, while the airport and the capital, St. John's, are a 25 minute drive away.

We have returned home after our stay at Villa H. We booked Villa H with cash payment, upfront since they do not accept credit card or Paypal. The owner was out of the country, so we were met by a friend who had been staying there.
The listing states that there is air conditioning, but one bedroom unit was broken. The site also states that the first bedroom has a built in tub, but this is clearly false advertising as there are no water fixtures or drain in what might have been a tub at one time. Since there are no screens in the windows, leaving the windows open at night infests the home with insects and large mosquitos making it unbearable. We also found three large cockroaches in the guest bathroom since that window is open all the time.
When we contacted the owner the next morning to have the AC repaired, we were told they could not come that day. After we stressed that this was not acceptable, the repair man finally arrived at 3:00pm. We spent the entire day there waiting for them and were unable to leave the villa. He spent about three hours, explaining that the wiring had been chewed by rodents and that the AC unit was not repairable. Trying to be accommodating, we simply asked for a fan to circulate the air since there are no ceiling fans in the bedrooms. I was shocked when the owner refused to purchase a fan, stating that there were no fans available for 220v on the entire island.
By this time of night, we were stuck for another sleepless night, trying to share one bedroom and sleeping on the floor. This was not our expectation at the price paid for this villa.
On the third day, we spent the entire morning without electricity, or water to bathe or even flush the toilet.
I was equally surprised that the owner refused to offer any refund for the horrible two days we had, and only agreed to refund the third night after we left the villa.
Since there were no bath amenities provided (shampoo/conditioner), we had to make a special trip to the nearest grocery store, 40 minutes away. We also spent hundreds of dollars renting a car and buying food that was wasted since we had no electricity to cook with and were forced to leave early.
It was very unprofessional to put a friend in such a difficult position since the owner stopped responding to our numerous emails and left her to deal the business problems. I would avoid this property at all cost.
My husband, daughter and I stayed at Villa H and loved every minute of it. The view is stunning, and whether we used the infinity pool overlooking the water, or walked down to the sundeck on the water to avail ourselves of snorkeling in the beautiful, blue water with amazing living reefs to explore, we never wanted to leave. The house was stocked with what we needed and we just brought a few provisions for breakfast overlooking the sea from the amazing outdoor dining area. It really felt like we were in a movie as the location and glass filled house is just lovely. It is about a half hour drive from English Harbor, where there are a number of good restaurants, although going to Mama Pasta's for lunch is always a nice option too. Christiane was extremely accommodating, and really went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We ended our vacation totally relaxed,and rested and not wanting to leave Villa H!
My husband and I spent a week here celebrating my 60th B-day. Pure Heaven!!! The house is so welcoming and relaxing. It's hard to leave. Spectacular view, gorgeous decor, all this and a wonderful host. Loved the outdoor shower and the privacy the house and Christian offer. Makes you feel like you are in your own home. You must visit Rosie at the bottom of the hill, incredible Italian cuisine. We shall return.
My fiancé and I absolutely adored Villa H. The stunning location and views, the privacy, the luxury of your own private sundeck at the water's edge - simply heavenly. If you are looking relax and get away from it all, we can hardly think of a better location. We hardly ventured out save to get provisions! The villa itself is comprehensively appointed, with absolutely masses of internal and external space. Christiane is an extremely helpful host and it is clear she takes great pride in keeping the property immaculate. How we would love to be back there now!
My husband and I simply adored Villa H. We had a fabulous time, and the charm and comfort of the villa didn't let us explore much of Antigua!!! Thanks to Christiane for her care and attention to detail. Jennifer
We were looking for an "away from it all", "on the water" vacation rental in Antigua and chose Villa H, based on reviews and photo's. From the moment we walked into the front entrance, we were blown away by the view; so much glass and endless ocean views! The Villa offers many ways to enjoy the sun and sea; from the private sundeck to the easy bay access for snorkelling/swimming. The maid and gardener were freindly, professional and unobtrusive. In every way, we found the experiences at the Villa and around the island to be relaxing, memorable and beyond expectations. Our only challenge (other than driving!) was food. There were few close in restaurant choices, so plan on driving some distance -or- buying provisions for cooking at the Villa, which has a great kitchen. I must say a few words about our host, Christiane; a special lady who made our visit that much better by attending to our needs. She met us at the Villa, provided helpfull information and welcome refreshments and was always available if needed. She far exceeded her duties after we had checked out of the Villa; showing up so unexpectedly at the airport, kindle in hand, just as my wife and I realized we had left it at the Villa. Yes, she had driven across the island to make sure we had all our belongings! These absent minded travellers are grateful and impressed!
