Charming apartment in a fantastic location and can only be an investment as time goes by.

What makes this apartment unique

The balcony in this studio gives you the sense of space with ocean views and gracious movements of super yachts rarely seen in such abundance. The kitchen facilities gives that wonderful homely feeling. Walking distance to all amenities is a plus. The location of English Harbour is one of the prettiest part of Antigua.

Winter Sun 5 -22 March 2016

  • 5 of 5

It was our 50th wedding anniversary on 1 January and the English winter had been particularly wet , cold and horrible, so we decided that we need some sun to cheer us up. THIS IS THE PLACE, Choys apartment was the perfect home from home. The view from the balcony is the best view we have had from a holiday apartment in the whole of our married life. We will go back again!

The local beach is the best in Antigua! Quiet and relaxed. White sand, turquoise sea, magnificent sailing and motors yachts. One bar Bumpkins at one end and a second Catherine's at the other. And if you want it a second private beach just around the corner.

We swam every morning walked around the dockyard, most historic in Antigua and ate at some lovely restaurants every evening followed by a glass of wine on the balcony every night watching the ships gradually

Light up after the sunset. And, what sunsets!

Jean and I have NO reservations about recommending this apartment and location to anyone! WE SHALL BE BACK. thank you Choy for such a lovely holiday and for looking after us so well whilst we were there.

Gorgeous location, needs TLC

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I were blown away by the view, the fabulous accessibility to all things important( capucchini, groceries, gas, rental cars, good restaurants and especially Nelson's Dockyard.) We stayed a month at Choy's place, the beds were very comfortable and the essential mosquito netting was so appreciated! Having traveled to all parts of Antigua, you may rest assured, English Harbour is where you want to be! The roads are bumpy, the area hilly, the daily parking erratic...wherever you can find it. The locals are wonderful people and never once in 30 days did anyone warn us of security issues! And there were none!

Choy couldn't have been more helpful with information and solutions, restaurant and local info of every kind. Her lovely shop is a few steps from the cottage and so she makes herself available most mornings! Thank you Choy!

If she could have held the local clubs at bay for noise levels three or four nights a week, or sorted out the mosquitos, then she would have!

On the minus side, the cottage is 30+ years old and in real need of upgrading: old Formica, dirty cabinets, louvered Windows that don't all function and screens that fit badly. I realize this keeps the price down but was not prepared for this, nor the 25 US dollar fee for laundering the linens, each week.

The rental car we were able to secure for a three week period for 44 US dollars a day! (We nogtiated on island instead of the "deals" on the net.) Awesome deal. Gas is six dollars per gallon, in each of the 22 gas stations. Our favorite, drop dead ambiance rest.was Cambusa at night...try the Amitriciana pasta. We loved Choppy's and the little guy who sells street food across from Our Lady of Perpetual Help, maybe 10 miles toward the airport. He's there on Friday and Saturdays only and is right on the corner of Fig Tree Drive. Five US$ for a very generous to-go, whelk-conch shrimp stew. OMG!

Falmouth Studio Apartments: My Caribbean Fix

  • 4 of 5

After ten years of staying here, this is truly my home away from home. For anyone wanting to experience and enjoy the unpretentious charm of the Caribbean, the Falmouth Studio Apartments are wonderful: comfortable, captivating and very convenient to at least three excellent restaurants, the beach, boutiques and the historic Dockyard in English Harbour. Being able to sit on the balcony in the evening in the soft night air while looking out over the yachts in Falmouth Harbour and the lights on the distant shore and listening to the tree frogs chirping is about as good as it gets. I arrived stressed from the States to find my wonderful, clean studio with a vase of Bougainvilla on the table, beer, soda, water in the fridge, and basic condiments and coffee on the shelves. After five days I left rejuvenated and relaxed having had my "Caribbean fix". I look forward to coming back next year and, hopefully, for many more years to come.

Perfect get-away!

  • 4 of 5

The reservations were no fuss, and Choy helped arrange a taxi pick up which was much appreciated! The apartment was clean and close to a little supermarket to stock up on essentials. The fabulous view is just as it is in the photo - and even better all lit up at night. In the morning, there were songbirds on the balcony and a wonderful breeze any time of day. Located about a ten minute walk to Pigeon Beach, one of the nicest spots on the island Also a short walk to Nelson Dockyards. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Some things you might want to do include: a bus ride into St. John's on a Saturday to check out the market; fish fry at the Dockyards on a Friday night; Catherine's restaurant/bar at Pigeon Beach. Things to avoid: the overly crowded Sunday dinner at Shirley Heights (but definitely go for the view/dinner another time); the over-priced breakfast down by the water/yacht club (but go for the ice coffee). You may want to pack earplugs if you are a light sleeper - I didn't have a problem but my husband had a few sleepless nights due to loud music. I would definitely recommend the property, though.

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Antigua… Choy is a wonderful owner - communicated well in advance of our arrival – even helping to arrange car service from the Airport…. + two cold beers in the fridge. Location overlooks the Yacht Club Marina with a very nice balcony. Just a short walk to Nelson’s Dockyard. Several nice restaurants within walking distance… try the flying fish sandwich at the Dockyard Bakery. Wonderful stay... very highly recommend this property. We look forward to returning again.

Wonderful location, wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Antigua desperately in need of a relaxing vacation, without too much hassle. It took us a minute to find the apartment, but as soon as we saw the place, with the incredible view, we knew we made the right choice.

We generally like to have the option to cook some meals for ourselves, and were pleased to find a kitchen stocked with all the equipment you would need to cook for yourself. By far the best things about the apartment are the balcony, with a view worth many many times the price (and where we spent many happy hours reading and relaxing), and the proximity to Falmouth & English Harbours. We decided not to rent a car during our vacation, and it turned out to be fine. We were located so close to many many restaurants, beaches, coffee shops and bars. Recommended: Catherine's at the end of Pigeon beach (AMAZING food and atmosphere), Bumpkin's for a budget lunch - great fish & chips (try their homemade hot sauce - VERY GOOD). Coffee at the dockside restaurant (excellent coffee), happy hour at Mad Mongoose (the bartender is named Junior and is a great guy), Rumbaba (a restaurant which we always missed-they close early-but everyone we talked to pointed us there), Trappas (a fantastic dinner at a reasonable price), drinks at the Admiral's Inn (great bar with a hammock on the harbor, and we had a great lunch there).

Choy was a wonderful host, and we enjoyed hearing her story and getting to know her a bit. Her shop in the Harbour is filled with all sort of treasures. She's done a great job keeping a very nice, simple apartment at a low cost so people like us (artists!) can enjoy the beauty and fun of Falmouth Harbour.

Thanks so much for a wonderful week, Choy!!

Map

Car: recommended

Falmouth Harbour is located on the south east coast of Antigua. It is in the area of English Harbour and the historical and well kept Nelson Dockyard . It is the hub of an international mega yacht base and pristine beaches are just minutes away. There is a village feeling and two distinct seasons. The high season from December to June has the island buzzing with International Boat Shows and Classic/Sailing Regattas and the low season from July to November is quieter. The apartments are within walking distance of many restaurants, yacht club, live music, supermarket, bookshop , banks, post office , bus stop and many more amenities.
