About the property

4 bedroom / 5 bathroom - Infinity pool Villa / Kayaks available for guests

The house covers over 7,000 sq ft of both indoor and outdoor living space. The immense and well kept garden, which runs all the way down to the sea, flourishes with an array of tropical plants and palm trees. Shady pergolas on both the east and west sides of the villa provide the perfect spot for some afternoon reading away from the intense sun. Sunrise and Sunset views are a bonus of this east/west facing home.

As you enter this home you will be taken aback by the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, the glassy bay, the nearby uninhabited smaller islands, reefs and the unspoilt greenery in the distance. Designed to harmonise with the environment, the villa allows you to become one with nature as a large veranda that extends the length of the house connects all the rooms and offers the experience of indoor/outdoor living every step of the way. On the extended veranda is a court yard style garden, separate seating areas and the infinity edged pool.

Bedrooms 1 & 2: All bedrooms are en-suite and have ceiling fans, although the area enjoys constant breeze. The first and second bedrooms are on the right of the main entrance to the villa. Bedroom 1 is furnished with a four poster queen size bed, night stands with lamps and a spacious walk-in closet. The bathroom is furnished with top quality bathroom fittings and an open air shower. The second en-suite bedroom is located close to the first but with ample space between rooms for privacy. These two rooms also have between them a linen closet / storage room. The second bedroom is fitted with a king size metal frame bed, night stands with lamps and a spacious walk-in closet. The bathroom is identical to that of bedroom one.

All of the four en-suite bathrooms are identical in character; they are all very large with open roof showers covered by a mesh.

Dining and living area: Returning to the main entrance of the villa, a stroll under the covered veranda leads to the kitchen, dining and living area whilst walking past the court yard style garden and pool. Although the kitchen and the dining and living areas are separate, there is a feel of uniformity between the rooms similar to that of an open floor concept.

The living room is tastefully furnished with imported Italian sofas, side tables with lamps, a coffee table, television cabinet and other elite tasteful pieces. The dining area is furnished with a hand crafted rustic wooden dining table with two rustic wooden benches and traditional chairs placed at the short ends. The living and indoor dining area have custom made folding wooden doors to allow the house to be kept fully open on both sides or closed for privacy as one chooses.

The kitchen is just few steps away; it is fitted with professional grade stainless steel appliances including a double door refrigerator, five burner stove, convectional oven, microwave oven and dish washer and other small appliances. The cabinets are Italian and are pure white in colour and topped with marble which was carefully chosen to enhance the space. A large island unit with butchers block adorns the kitchen and includes stools for enjoying casual breakfast or coffee. Adjoining the kitchen is a large pantry.

Bedrooms 3 & 4: Further down the large veranda from the living area is the master suite which is accessible from both sides of the Villa. This room has a king size four poster bed, night stands with lamps, lounge chair, walk-in closet and other delicate touches. The bathroom compliments this room as it is decorated with white vanity, walk-in open roof shower and other elegant touches.

A little further is the last bedroom; this room is perfect for children or two sharing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our first visit to Antigua and it couldn’t have been better. From the greeting at the airport, helping us get set up with our rental car and groceries, and the trip across the island to the house, it was a smooth and fantastic start to a tremendous holiday. The home is stunning to say the least. Located on a quiet lagoon with plenty of privacy, it was exactly what two busy people like my wife and I needed. Waking up to beautiful sunrises, ending the day with out of this world sunsets, and days filled with exploring the island or just relaxing by the huge pool, our stay at the Longhouse has gone down as one of the very the best vacations we have ever taken. In fact, we’ve already booked again for 2018 and plan on bringing our two children along to experience this island paradise and a home that stacks up with some of the nicest resorts we’ve stayed at over the years. Clean, modern, and expansive, the Longhouse is a treat. If you’re not content just to sit by or in the pool, they have kayaks available for use and a number of beaches are just a short drive away. Half Moon bay ranks amongst our favorites on the island. The kitchen is a chefs dream with beautiful appliances and plenty of space to whip up a feast. Don’t feel like cooking? English Harbour is only about a 20 minute drive away, with some amazing restaurants. In fact, one night when we decided to take in the barbeque at Shirley Heights, our hosts arranged a taxi to get us there and back, allowing for a little more enjoyment of local the local rum and other spirits. Having Voice Eve, the maid, come around every few days to do the housekeeping was great. She even did our laundry for us and is a pleasure to talk to. All in all, I’d recommend a stay at the Longhouse to anyone. Peaceful, quiet, and first class accommodations all the way. Can’t wait for our next visit!

Welcome to The Long House!

This newly constructed home is located on the eastern side of the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua, very close to a small village of typical Antiguan character, named Willikies. The Villa is built within 1.4 acres on a picturesque peninsula and enjoys breathtaking and tranquil panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the nearby bays on both sides.

The location of the villa is on the more peaceful, less populated and unspoiled east side of the island within the Peninsula development, and since Antigua boasts a plethora (over 300) of beaches it is an ideal base to rest and relax after exploring the natural beauties of the island or just “stay at home” and enjoy the tranquillity The Long House offers. The world renowned beach at Half Moon Bay is about a 20 minute drive with the nearest large beach Long Bay being about a10 minute drive away. Devils Bridge and the lush Fig tree drive are all within 15 minute drive as well.

Beautiful Quiet Antigua Island Home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 couples came together in Antigua from the U.S. to have some island fun. This villa was quite remote and located in a quiet area, but down the road from our favorite beach "Long Bay". If you want a lot of action and expecting high rise all inclusives, this is not your island, nor your island home. The villa was an "open air" style and the sea breeze was amazing. We never missed air-conditioning. The bedrooms, dressing area, showers were ALL huge. The style of this home was completely different than where we come from, as it was truly an Antiguan Island home. We hated having to come back. The Antiguan people were very friendly. We enjoyed being introduced to "French pressed" coffee. The pool was lovely and we used it several times every day. Mossy (the property manager) met us at the airport and she was amazing - we really enjoyed her and she assisted us with an issue with our car rental. We followed her to a grocery store, then off to the Long House. We were very comforted by Mossy's assistance, as we were a little apprehensive traveling to a different country. Mossy gave us a cell phone that we carried with us for the week. We did call her to get recommendations when we had a flat tire. She responded immediately and it was only a few dollars to get the tire fixed. We felt safe at all times at the villa. We were slightly challenged with driving on the left side of the road for the first couple of days. We did get lost across the island and the locals were very helpful in heading us in the right direction. The police officers were great and one escorted us to a road we were looking for. The island was very clean. We had a near perfect island adventure and I would definitely return to the same island and villa. I loved the cultural flair of this island. We loved a place called "Momma Pasta's" on Long Bay Beach. Loved the road side markets. English Harbor area was beautiful. Shirley Heights was great. Another item worth mentioning: we were very nervous about bank to bank wire transfer of funds. In our country we are used to paying with PayPal or Credit Cards. The transfer went smoothly. There are some canoes that you can take down the way for launching .... if we had a few more days we would have done that...we simply ran out of time. I would love to return and stay longer ... 1 week was not enough.

My wife and I like to get away from people, do not want staff around and want peace and quiet. If this is what you want, your have found a wonderful, spacious, quiet home with the most amazing pool ever. This Villa has everything that couples need. The master bedroom was wonderful and it was relaxing to wake up in the morning and look out at the pool and the Caribbean below. The lounges by the pool were very comfortable, the veranda bed outside was amazing and there was nothing that we did not enjoy. I have used VRBO 8 times and this Villa was at the TOP for beauty. This home in my opinion is the most beautiful Villa that we have ever stayed in. The Owner is a wonderful person and easy to talk to and communicate with. His Mother in Law picked us up at the airport, brought us to the Supermarket to shop and then brought us to the home about 30 minutes from the airport. What a treat to have Mossy meet us. We rented a car and went to English Harbor for Dinner every night except one. The food in English Harbor is incredible. We recommend Sun Ra, Abracadabra and Trappas to eat. We really can not say enough about The Long House. Nick who is the owner was very attentive to our needs and I urge anyone interested in relaxation to travel to Antigua and spend at least a week at this beautiful home. One thing to note is the kitchen has more amenities that our house so you can cook up a storm here. The appliances are all top of line. Take some time and go to this Villa and relax and enjoy life!!!

EXCEPTIONAL - Newer home with gorgeous ocean views

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for privacy, natural beauty, lots of space, open and airy accommodations, amazing Infinity pool with peace and quiet, yet still be within easy driving distance to fun activities and great restaurants - then look no further. The Long House has all of this and more.

The house and grounds are clean and well-maintained. The owner through which we rented was very professional. Mossie, who met us at the airport was attentive and courteous to our needs. She really made us feel welcome and at home! The housekeeper likewise, was accommodating - adjusting her schedule to fit ours.

We look forward to returning to the Long House and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality home.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is by far the best vacation home we have enjoyed over the years. My wife and I completed a 4-week stay in this well equipped and comfortable home. Private and peaceful, this home is a perfect blend of open air living with modern conveniences. Whether it was sunrise morning coffee on a shaded lanai with views of the ocean, lunch on the covered side of the pool, or big sky sunsets on the swing overlooking the water, this house provided memories that endure. The clean modern kitchen has appliances that are equal to what we have at home which made cooking enjoyable. Beds are comfortable and the huge open air showers gave it a warm tropical experience. Although it was just my wife and myself with a short visit from our daughter, I think larger groups would appreciate the privacy for each room that the 'Long House' offers. Mossy was wonderful. She met us at the airport and made sure the home was always in working order. Especially important was the housekeeper, Voice Eve. She not only kept the home immaculate but she also has a sweet and open personality.

With so many choices to stay in the world, I would recommend that you not hesitate to enjoy this home as the perfect setting for your stay in Antigua.

Stunning Property

  • 5 of 5

The Long House is luxurious with wonderful views and all mid cons.

We have just spent two weeks there and had a great time. Nick and Mossy were very helpful all the way through and Voice Eve looked after us so well she was a delight. All we wanted was a place to relax and chill out and The Long House was prefect for that ..

It's going to take us a while to get back to the pace of things In the UK I think !!

Our favourite place to stay in Antigua

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Antigua and the first to stay in this part of the island. We were grateful to Mossy for showing us the nearest supermarket to stock up on provisions. A car is essential as the location of the villa is quite remote...

But what a location!! We were blown away by the beautiful view and couldn't believe our luck every morning when we woke up to it. The bedrooms all look out to the ocean and every room is spacious with lovely en suite shower rooms. Our four children loved the space, the pool and the many different areas to sit, inside and out. The kitchen was very well equipped and Voice Eve was charming and helpful. We loved it so much we booked again immediately for another fortnight in 2015.

The Long House is one the most most relaxing places to stay we have ever been to and dealing with the owners was a delight.
