The building, designed by an Italian engineer, combines the security of reinforced concrete with wood. The elegance of the rooms and furniture, in their simplicity, offer comfort and elegance perfectly integrated with the Caribbean style.

Excellent, private, fabulous beach!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous vacation! As we are writing, we are sitting pool side looking out over the spectacular ocean view of half moon bay. The house is very clean and the housekeeper Desiree is a delightful person who is excellent at her job and lovely to deal with. She provided us with plenty of advice on things to do on the island and arranged for an escort for us from the airport (which was important as we arrived after dark and the house is a long way from the airport). The reviews are correct that there is no need for air conditioning due to the ever-present sea breeze. You definitely need a car to get around. We had one person with disabilities and one with significant health concerns and the house met their needs perfectly, especially the extensive covered areas. The owner was incredibly responsive to my inquiries and helpful throughout the process. The house is lovely and tidy, the beds are comfortable, the linens smell amazing and fresh and we were extremely at home in the villa. Best of all it was a truly private holiday, we are not big fans of all inclusive resorts because of the lack of privacy. The beach at half moon bay is lovely with great snorkelling (reefs just off the beach with lots of tropical fish on view). The beach is a 10 minute walk down hill or a 2 minute drive. The kitchen is small but well stocked. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

Amazing view villa

  • 5 of 5

We were puzzled about renting this villa ‘cause of no air conditioning , just ceiling fans. Luckily we rented it the same and we ‘ve never used them. It was always pleasantly windy, due to the position, facing the ocean. I had breakfast in the patio near the pool enjoying the view of Half Moon Beach and at night the moonlight often reached the beach and it was fantastic. I think the best place in the island. The keeper was always helpful.

I was really fine. Fantastic holiday, really good villa with all conforts. There was hardly never anybody on the beach. Peaceful place! Far from the city. And from cruise passengers!!!!!!!

It was our third time in this wonderful villa...and absolutely was the best staying! Thanks to Francesco for the improvements and to Bernardine and Carty for the assistance. For sure we'll repeat this experience in the future.

Meravigliosa !!

  • 5 of 5

Siamo due famiglie ed abbiamo soggiornato per una settimana in questa splendida casa !! molto confortevole e accogliente. Situata nella parte meno turistica dell'isola e a pochi passi dalla splendida spiaggia di Half Moon Bay. Con un auto a noleggio si raggiungono velocemente tutte le altre meravigliose spiagge. L'isola è veramente bella e merita di essere visitata.

Abbiamo avuto solo un piccolo problema con l'acqua e la piscina, ma Carty (che si occupa della casa ed è sempre disponibile e gentile) ha risolto rapidamente .

Consigliamo vivamente questa abitazione.

Owner's Response: Caro Enrico, la ringrazio vivamente per aver condiviso la sua buona esperienza nella mia casa. Nuovamente, le mie scuse per il problema con l'acqua, dovuto ad un guasto, che sono felice di sapere è stato prontamente risolto. spero di averla ancora nostro ospite

Una vacanza memorabile

  • 5 of 5

Splendida villa, siamo stati li' due settimane con un gruppo di amici, la location e' favolosa (Half Moon Bay e' secondo me la spiaggia piu' bella di Antigua, e contemporaneamente e' esclusiva e riservata). La casa e' grande e spaziosa, pratica e funzionale - bella senza essere pretenziosa. La consiglio assolutamente!

The villa is located on a hill overlooking the most beautiful beach on the island, Half Moon Bay. The area is unspoiled and considered one of the most exclusive areas of the island. The view from the house of the pink coral beach is particularly striking. The location, isolated from the city, makes it a wild paradise, ideal for a relaxing and rejuvenating. the use of the car (a nice pick-up that can carry 5 people) to go exploring the rest of the 365 beaches of the island, can be requested to the house staff on site. Our housekeeper will be available to you to meet any need or requirement.
