Overview

About the property

Heated Private Pool, 3 Bedrooms,2 twins 1 double bedroom, 2 showers, sleeps 6.

Three bedroom private house with private heated pool, rooftop sun terrace, secure front and back garden areas.Located only 1 minute walk from the restaurants/bars/mini golf of Montecastillo, and only 10 minutes path walk to the child friendly sandy beach of Caleta De Fuste. 10 mins walk to the new Atlantico Centre which houses many shops, restaurants, multiplex cinema, bowling alley, arcade and large EuroSpar. You can see the golf course and the sea from the roof terrace. The property comprises a large front terrace with a covered patio area, an open plan living area with 2 sofas, TV and DVD player, 1 master bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms, two looking onto the pool. Private heated pool with surrounding sunbathing area and large rooftop sun terrace. The kitchen diner is fully fitted with fridge/freezer (new July 16), ceramic hob, dishwasher, oven (new July 16) and has a dining table. The patio has a table with 6 chairs. There is a also a small laundry room with a new washing machine. The pool was completley refurbished in July 16 and the bathroom replaced in August 16.

Child friendly: The house is set up for a a family of up to 6. The front patio provides a secure play area for the children. There is plenty of space around the pool for the kids to play but obviously they will need monitoring in and around the pool. High chairs, cots and buggies can be hired but will cost extra. Airport meet and greet can also be arranged. There is a 24 hr emergency number and a wall safe. Smoking is allowed but not inside the house. Entry is by a keybox or you can be met for €10. The wifi is free.

Heated Pool: The pool heating can bring the pool temperature up to a constant 28 degrees. The cost for this is currently £50 per week and is optional. I would recommend this for most of the year but it is not essential, especially in August.

Location/Tourist Attraction: The house is an easy walk to all the amenities and beach and is also in a good position to explore the island either by car or bus. A hire car is not essential. The most popular attractions are the Zoo, Water Park and glass bottomed boat. Nestors restaurant is just around the corner.

About Steve Claringbould

Steve, father of 3 boys, married 15 years. Spent 20 years in the Royal Air Force. Currently working for a large airline flying longhaul. Visit the villa twice a year if I can. Live in Oxfordshire.

Steve Claringbould purchased this villa in 2003

Why Steve Claringbould chose Antigua

We bought the villa what seems an age ago. Really liked the island and thought Caleta an excellent place for young families to holiday (our youngest was 6 months at the time). Great location within walking distance of everything you need for a family holiday.

What makes this villa unique

Private heated pool. You can escape the kids up on the sun terrace and you have the shaded front patio for al fresco dining. On a quiet street away from noise but the supermarket is just around the corner. Free wifi.

Amazing weeks stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home from an amazing week at the villa. During booking Steve was very helpful. Thank you. During our stay Sue was brilliant and arranged our lift back to the airport by Geoff. Thank you to them too. The villa has everything you need. The pool is perfect for cooling down. The sun terrace is amazing. I think the best part of the villa is how peaceful it is. Just what we needed. Shops bars/restaurants are close by with the main town just over 10 mins walk away. The variety there is great. Will definitely go back if you will have us. Thanks again for allowing us to stay 😁?

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Monday to be greeted by Sue, who was very welcoming. The house was clean and even better than how it looked in the pictures. Sue dedicated some time to show us around the villa and also explain certain hotspots in the area which we found extremely helpful.

Throughout the week we felt relaxed, at home and felt that Sue was always there to help us if we needed anything, which we found very helpful.

As a group of four young people, the area was a perfect holiday destination as it was safe, and there was always something to do. We really enjoyed the pool; we were delighted to find many inflatables in the outside cupboard, and we left "Frank" the flamingo and an inflatable volleyball net to enjoy as much as we did.

The Montecastillo centre which was a 2 minute walk has many restaurants and cafes for breakfasts and dinners. Also, a family vibe with bars and pool tables and very friendly bar owners.

Additionally, on the walk towards the beach, there were more lovely restaurants which we enjoyed for a few nights. Including, La Bodeguita which is an Italian, and Lin's which, in our opinion, did the best breakfast.

The beaches were a particular highlight for us. The beach behind the Atlantico Centre was idyllic, and for the price of 3.50 euros for the day, you can rent sun loungers, making the day very relaxing.

We spent most evenings at the villa, as it felt like home. It was comfortable, had lots of facilities we needed (iron, washing machine, dishwasher, etc.) The beds and sofas were very comfortable, it was spacious and peaceful, with lovely views of the sea from the roof terrace.

Overall, the week was everything we could have asked for, and we couldn't recumbent the villa enough. Thanks again to Steve and Sue for all your help.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd trip to the Villa and loved it just as much. Is a home from home with everything you need. Thank you to Steve for letting us use your home, to Sue for arranging our pick up, drop off and for the arrangements on last day, and Geoff for airport collection/drop off and Jeff for pool/maintenance. Nestors and 15 are places to visit for meals - Nestors is local up near the Hiperdino on corner. Hope to return again soon . Helen, Tony and Grace

lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay for 1 week in November, the villa really has everything you need and is only a short walk to shops and restaurants. Everybody was so helpful and easy to deal with, Steven before we left, Sue when we arrived, plus the cleaning lady and pool guy when we were leaving (sorry I forgot your names) . Would definitely recommend it and will hopefully return.

Relaxation Haven

  • 5 of 5

Myself my partner and mum stayed for 9 nights in September.The villa is in a fantastic location at the end of the road there are a variety of bars and restaurants and you are only 7 mins walking distance from town. The villa is well equipped and lovely and clean and the pool is a fantastic addition. The check -in process was extremely simple, sue the property manager was great and really quick to respond to any queries. Steve the owner was great all the way through and responded quickly to emails and questions. If you are looking a place to put your feet up, soak up the sun and generally have a bit of R&R then this Is definitely

The place to book.

Caleta de Fuste is a new and developing family resort with lots of amenities and a great climate all year round. Just around the corner are the restaurants/bars/minigolf of Montecastillo and the beach is only a five minute walkaway. The man made child friendly beach has golden sand and is pretty well sheltered from the wind and has plenty of sunbeds.
