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.

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!
My partner and I are very fussy and particular travellers. We value extreme privacy and quiet, in truly beautiful locations, but accompanied by as much luxury as possible (no sand-floor beach-hut for us), and modernist/minimal design (can't stand touristy-vernacular kitsch). All in all, a tall order indeed! I can honestly say that Villa H. exceeded our expectations - and this has never happened to us before.
Now, as with everything, one man's dream is another man's nightmare, so you have to be clear about what you want from your holiday in Antigua before you book this stunning villa, in order to enjoy it as unreservedly as we did.
It is not on the western side of the island, where most of the bars and shops etc are; you need to drive around 20 mins before you get anywhere worth getting to (other than the immediate vicinity of the villa and the nice but quite developed Long Beach), so do not plan to use this place as a launching pad for the ultimate Touristy Antigua Tour. You must want to be in one of the most fabulously designed and furnished modernist villas you can access for this (bargain) price [I am terrified the price will go up as I write this!], with the most luxurious and comfortable interiors, several private terraces and unobstructed views, including a private (and I mean totally private) sunning deck with loungers just above the water, wherefrom you can dip into the sea (not a sandy beach, but a largely sandy, shallow bay, where you can swim forever); you must enjoy spending time there, with whomever comes with you, relaxing in a dozen different positions/loungers/sofas/terrace, and then cooking something in the truly impressive and impressively equipped kitchen (three different garlic crushers... respect!); you must be happy taking a break from lounging with a 20-30min drive across fabulously virgin tropical landscapes in your 4 wheel drive to either the capital for decent provisions, or English Harbour for a formal dinner out (wonderful Admiral's Inn - our favourite), or Half Moon Bay for the bona fide, postcard-perfect pink sand Caribbean beach, etc.
If you want to make new friends every night in a different watering hole, this place isn't for you. But if you are longing, as we do, for an experience of true luxury (which means: masses of space, immaculately designed, all mod cons, dead quiet and privacy, in gorgeous location), without being able to afford Necker Island, then look no further.
