Overview

Falmouth Harbour Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage on 2 levels with a ocean view from the bedroom balcony

Lush Tropical Setting

Bamboo Cottage is for nature lovers, set in a lush garden within a five minute walk to the sea. The cottage is nestled among palms and clusters of tall bamboo. Adding to the tranquillity, as the sway and rustle of these trees make music in the Caribbean breeze.

The Cottage is on two levels, the large verandah entrance leads into the open plan kitchen and living area which is well stocked, an island wth a gas range, a convection oven and microwave for cooking. Also an additional shower is located on the verandah for

your return from the beach or the pool. A spiral staircase goes up to the bedroom with an 'open plan bathroom' . Also another verandah off the bedroom which looks thru the bamboo out to sea

and the yachts in Falmouth Harbour.

Falmouth Harbour is the centre of the yachting industry in Antigua & Barbuda. This is on the southwestern side of the island and is the home of the internationally famous Classic Regatta followed by Antigua Sailing Week. Also a five minute drive to the beautiful Pidgeon Beach, Shirley Heights Lookout (Antigua's National Park) and Historic Nelson's Dockyard.

Bamboo House apartment #262413 is also available. Please see listing for details.

Bamboo Garden: The owner lives on the upper floor of Bamboo House, which is on the other side of the property from the cottage, However the property has been cleverly designed to give everyone their own access and privacy, while having the security of knowing there is someone around should you need any assistance.

The property has a very romantic and relaxed feeling and an ideal place to just sit back and enjoy, also a good base from which to do your exploring of the island.

Keywords: Garden, lush, warm, cozy, romantic, comfortable, countryside, peaceful, tropical, home, quiet, tranquil, cottage.

About The Owner

Joanne, your host is a Canadian who has been living in Antigua for the past 24 years. She is an avid gardener and the property reflects this. Another of Joanne's passion is food, for over 12 years she ran a restaurant she started in the harbour. Having sold the restaurant she now turns her attention to the maintenance of her garden and the operation of a Farmer's Market. Want to feel at home, Joanne is your best host!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009

Why The Owner chose St. Paul

I had the cottage built in 2009 in my garden as I think it is a very beautiful place and wanted to share it with others.

What makes this cottage unique

The sound of the birds singing during the day and the tree frogs in the evening add to swimming tin the pool that is surrounded by bamboo and palm trees and is even more beautiful in the evening in the bath temperture water and the star clustered skies.

We were thrilled with the property. The photos do not due it justice.

  • 5 of 5

Bamboo Cottage was like our own personal paradise. The lush secluded grounds were magnificent. Joanne is a fabulous host who is welcoming and informative, however she provides you with space and privacy. It is a delicate balance that she maintains so well. The delicious snack tray and rum punch upon arrival were very much appreciated after our journey. We had the pleasure of being in Antigua during mango season. Not only did Joanne provide us with a number of mangoes, she shared her knowledge on how to properly cut them. It was a first for me. We appreciated all the extra items that were included, especially the beach chairs and towels. Nightly swims in the pool were such an added perk. Thank you Joanne for sharing your beautiful oasis with us. We highly recommend this adorable, well appointed cottage. It made our trip to Antigua perfect.

Great tropical paradise

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Joanne. You were a marvelous host along with Max and Rosie. We really enjoyed our 2 week stay at your cottage. It was one of the nicest vacations we've experienced. Your cottage really is a "home away from home". It certainly is much nicer than resort holidaying. We appreciated all of the extras you provided, tangible and intangible,for example the beach chairs, cooler and ice packs which made going to the beach so comfortable. We appreciated your friendliness and concern for our well being.

We miss watching the bananaquits while having our morning coffee on your sunny verandah. What a great way to start the day. Please give Max and Rosie a pat on the head from us. We hope to come back again,

Karin and Martin from snowy Toronto.

Antiguan escape

  • 5 of 5

Joanne and the bamboo cottage are the best! Once we arrived Joanne greeted us and provided us with a tray of snacks to last us the afternoon until we could go to dinner at Papas across the road.

Joannes recommendations throughout the week were fantastic and she did a magnificent job being available with being even the slightest bit intrusive. My wife and I loved every second of our time at the bamboo cottage and very much hope to return someday with some friends.... Do not hesitate to stay at Joannes property, it is an island getaway you won't forget. Her two pups Rosie and Max are adorable and only add to the charm.

Thanks you for sharing your home with us!

The BEST place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Bamboo Cottage was WAY more than we could have expected! We spent a week (Jan 9-16, 2016). The owner, Joanne, is the best hostess you could ask for! All of her recommendations were spot on and we enjoyed them all immensely. It is the perfect combination of relaxing, lush tropical setting, but close to amenities and lovely beaches. We so enjoyed watching the King of Hummingbirds defend his feeder from the front porch of the cottage. The cottage is very well equipped. We actually cooked or grilled most evenings. The items available to take to the beach were wonderful - chairs, cooler, drinks cooler. It makes it so much easier than having to think about transporting that type of thing with you or buying it once there. We definitely plan to go back and stay again (and again.....). Joanne has so many repeat renters that you know you have found a wonderful vacation spot and to look no further! I cannot recommend enough!

Magical!!

  • 5 of 5

After just returning from our stay in Bamboo cottage felt the need to gush about what a lovely place this is to stay! Joanne is the perfect hostess, she has all the info you will need about every part of your stay, where to go, local tips etc but also she will give you the privacy you need too.

The cottage is equipped with everything you will need, beach towels and chairs, cool bag and ice blocks.....

We had all windows open all the time, shower is open in any case, but no worries as mesh at every opening to keep out the mozzies, also ceiling fans, air con in bedroom, mozzie net over bed. Cozy lounge area too if you can drag yourself away from the front porch with its comfy furniture and hammock. Hummingbird sits in the bamboo near the porch and keeps you entertained fighting off all contenders for the sugar water feeder, inquisitive lizards pop in the porch too.

Joanne left us a welcome snack with jug of rum punch on arrival, there is drinking water dispenser so no need to buy bottled water!

Could rattle on about the property but now for locally....baileys supermarket down road, places to eat all along road to English harbour and around marina. Pigeon Beach just out of marina is great, beach bar at one end, more elegant Catherines Place restaurant and beach bar at other, trees for shelter, Roti sue will come round to sell you a Roti and fresh veg juice-they are wonderful!!

Nelsons dockyard is a good visit, tell them you are staying locally and you don't pay admission (although you need to pay to visit Shirley Heights up the hill), restaurants in there along with a bit of history. We took a boat trip with a local man round the harbour which was interesting.

Further afield, Half Moon bay is lovely but rough for swimming and seaweed. On the whole we were lazy and stayed locally but Joanne will guide you re places to go ie stingray city which we didn't get round to.

November is a good time to visit as start of season and quiet, weather was fab, rain at night when it doesn't matter!

Great big thank you Joanne for sharing your lovely cottage, garden and pool with us, we had an amazing time and it was so good to meet you, you put a lot of effort into keeping your guests happy and it shows! we wouldn't hesitate to come back and miss it all so much.

Regards Nicole & Alan (Wirral UK)
