Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms with california king, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4). From $450/night

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.

Private and safe haven

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to villa H. We absolutely love this villa! We were a family of 4. 2 adults and 2 boys, 10 and 13. We spent 3 weeks last and this year during our spring break. The location is extremely private and safe. (The whole island is extremely safe.) The villa overlooks a breathtaking bay that is protected by a reef. The snorkelling is great right off the lower deck. The villa itself has clean modern lines and is equipped with everything one needs for a comfortable holiday. It is beautiful! You do need a vehicle if you want to explore the island. There are so many spectacular beaches and places to see. The island offers great kite surfing and a fabulous kite school (40 knots). The villa is about a 35 minute drive to st-johns. Locals are very patient drivers and not scary like on other islands. Very safe to drive and vehicle rentals are very inexpensive. There are a few little grocery stores closer by but you still need a vehicle to get to them. The huge ones are in St-Johns and they have everything for every possible diet, vegan, GF,...

Villa H does not disappoint, it impresses. I would recommend this villa for anyone looking for a beautiful, well appointed private oasis!

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 spent 2 weeks at Villa H. Not our first trip to Antigua or to the villa. We had another amazing holiday. The villa, with its modern lines and thought to every detail, exudes class and comfort. And with the mind blowing view on the national park and absolutely private waterfront, it's just the perfect place to spend a vacation. Easy swimming and snorkeling in front of the house, BBQs on the terrace, and one of the best places for kitesurfing on the nearby Green Island (the school can come to pick you up at nearby dock).

Christiane, the house manager, is always available to help for anything you can imagine - from finding fresh fish, a nanny or giving you quick updates on the newest and latest in Antigua. It all just feels so easy and comfortable.

most beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the most gorgeous house we have rented in the Caribbean and we have been renting in several islands for 15 years now. The view is incredible, with private access to the water and a small but truly refreshing infinity pool. The garden is superb as is the decor in the house. extremely comfortable. AC working well in both bedrooms, and there is always a breeze in the main living areas of the villa. we did not have bug issue except for one night. the kitchen and grill are paradise if you like to cook like we do. The negative review must be from some of the most unlucky people on earth! Christiane is a wonderful hostess. And, the villa has its own cistern, very convenient when the government decides to cut off water (happened twice), and its own generator which kicked in at least once during our stay. Do your grocery shopping at the Epicurean and avoid St John: for a stay just perfect and beautiful and quiet. We are repeating next year!

Roaches, No A/C, No Power, No running water or flushing toilets, and No response from owner!!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that these guests did not enjoyed their stay with us. We take all of our feedback seriously and given that they are the first of our guests to give us a negative rating (in 5 years) we are very disturbed by their comment. We do sincerely sorry that one of our Air-con unit broke down after their arrival and that the technician was unable to repair it at short notice. as he had to order a spare part from abroad. Likewise we apologize that there was a short government power/water cut which affected all homes in the area of St Philips according to APUA. Some government power/water cuts can sometimes happen, but very rarely together. they are unfortunately out of our control. Luckily these rare cuts do not usually last more than one hour. We would like to clarify that our stove is gas-powered and do not depend on electricity and can be lit with matches or the special clicker next to it.Also we always provide our guests with soap and shower gel but never shampoo. In my absence they should have been put by the person in charge while i was away. Please also note that the nearest grocery store is 5mns away in the village of Willikies. There is also another grocery store 12 mns away in Pares village. There you can even find local fruits and vegetables which very convenient if you do not want to drive to the Epicurean 30 mns away from us. Our guests and their experiences are very important to us, so we are sincerely saddened by this comment.

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

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!
