Villa with Private Heated Pool. Short walk to child friendly Beach/Town Center

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


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.

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.

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank Steve, sue and stu for everything they done for us, our stay was just perfect, the villa was so cosy and comfortable. The wifi was a god send which kept older son entertained and the great selection of books and DVDs a fantastic added extra, we also loved the fact there was a washing machine which kept everything nice and fresh, the pool was just so lovely and my sons absolutely loved it, the location was great and only a 2 minute walk to local shop at montecastillo centre and a nice walk to the main centre, we loved it and would definitely return in the future, I wish Steve all the best with his villa as it is a hidden treasure. Ps the new pillows were so comfy. Thank you for making our family holiday one to remember x

Best place to stay EVER

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant time, would highly recommend this villa. It was stunning, pool was brillant and the roof terrace amazing to relax on. Was there 3 weeks for my honeymoon and honestly could not have had a better time, have been 2 many places but never had a holiday i enjoyed as much. The location enables you to tour the whole island and at the end of the day, the design, decor and layout of the villa welcomes you home. I hated packing to leave. The owner is brilliant, communication amazing & i have to say a special thanks for my surprise when i arrived. The manager was very helpful and on the ball and the pool maintenance guy was amazing, made us feel very at home and gave us good advice on the island and made us feel so welcome. All in all, i would live there if i could. Will definately be back, no more hotels or complexes for us, its this villa all the way

Fantastic Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab holiday here. The property had everything we needed and was perfect with two children. It is in a great location, close to the centre of Caleta and to the airport. It was lovely having a pool out the back and there is a good size outdoor area at the front also. Caleta is a really nice resort with lots of good restaurants and a lovely beach and sea front. The owner was great to deal with and we were very happy with everything. We would definitely recommend this property and the area, for anybody but especially young families.
