|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Tuck into your own private mini-resort at Shellen, a 3-bedroom (plus sleeper sofa), 2-bath villa poised at the edge of the rocky, dramatic Caribbean coastline. Amenities include an ocean-view outdoor deck with pool, a sunken hot tub, and plenty of lounge chairs under tall palm trees. Not to mention the private snorkelling and wading beach, easily accessed from your own stairway.
Shellen is totally secluded, with no neighbours and, on clear nights, an unpolluted sky full of stars. In the evening, this northwest-facing villa is afforded spectacular sunset views. Stir a tropical cocktail, settle into the hot tub, and watch the sun sink into the sapphire waters of the Caribbean. Then watch the sun be replaced by the twinkle of a million stars.
Cathedral windows in the living area and dining sunroom reveal big views of the sea and sky. A more formal dining room seats 6 in comforts that will carry your meal long into the evening. When bedtime arrives, sleeping arrangements include a king-sized bedroom, two queen-sized bedrooms, and a sofa bed in the private den, which sleeps two more for a total of 8 people. A fully-equipped kitchen waits for you to cook breakfast for your group… there’s a full-service grocery store just 3 minutes away by car, or head to one of the restaurants in the same area.
The natural beachfront just beyond Shellen Villa may not be ideal for sunbathing because of its rocks and pebbles, but it more than makes up for it by offering some truly exceptional, warm-water snorkelling and wading. Catch some sun on one of the deck’s lounge chairs then head down to the beach for a dip.
Best of all, Shellen Villa fits a family-sized budget—so you can enjoy all the top-notch amenities of a (private!) Caribbean resort, without stressing over the price tag.

My friends and I had the privilege of spending at week at Shellen. What a beautiful home! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen amazingly well equipped, and the outdoor spaces were perfect. The snorkeling right off of the house was amazing! I would love to stay again.
There are many things we liked about Shellen, spacious, quiet, good layout of the rooms, good Kitchen facilities plenty of Hot water, Nice comfortable beds. Not quite a beach below but a great place to snorkel & you can stand up even when far out from the shore line. It is also close to a sandy beach resort with Shops & restaurants not far away. The downside for us was even though we were here for 16 days no pool Cleaner (The pool was quite dirty) the jacuzzi was a nice touch but also not very clean. There was also no maid service throughout our stay so no clean towels unless we did them ourselves (Which we did soap powder etc is provided) The wi fi reception is poor with less than 2 mb so impossible to do much on this & the cable Tv has very limited channels for evening entertainment so best read a book. During our stay we never meet of saw any representative for the rental agents although they did ring us to check everything okay & when we left we then handed the keys back to the Avis car rental for where we picked them up. No Welcome greeting from the agent so overall poor service there. we were a party of 5 I you would be pushed to have 8 stay. Overall a nice retreat but limited on basic things. PS app only works if you have an american phone.
We arrived on the 20th and we were quite disappointed in this property. Yes the beach is rocky to say the least. It is not possible to stroll down the "beach". Upon arrival the "infinity pool" (not) was slime green. We we told it would be fixed shortly but not quite what you expect. Unfortunately the breeze seems to be blocked by the trees when the wind came form the East. The property managers were very good about finding another place to stay which we did the next day. A hint for the owner, clear out some rocks and make a nice little area with sand and an umbrella or two. That would make up for the rocky beach. The house itself is nice and no complaints on it. It is very private and thats what we were looking for. However it just didn't work due to the issues.
There are a few restaurants in the East End area and a water-sports operator located on Rum Point Beach, but it is generally a much quieter experience. This area is about 50 minutes drive from the airport, car hire is recommended if you choose to stay in this area.
