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.

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!
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Owner chose Falmouth Harbour
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.

SSSSShhhhh keep it our hidden secret !!!!
We arrived totally exhausted from very busy stressful jobs and walked into this hidden tranquil paradise. To greet us was the fabulous Joanne, an amazing lady with the ability to make you feel welcome, at ease and nothing was too much, a beautiful and funny soul that I hope remains in our lives.... although a stranger when we got there, I looked forward to seeing her when she would say hi, never intrusive , both her and Max and Rosie her gorgeous dogs got the balance right. The cottage was everything we needed, being a fussy one with cleanliness, I could not fault the linens and towels etc... the pool provided enough privacy between the two properties so as not to feel overlooked. putting my food in the compost now makes me miss feeding the tortoise in Joannes garden I enjoyed such a simple task who knew I like watching tortoise ! We cannot recommend the cottage or the house enough, have no hesitation booking this one people, I promise you will not regret it. But I don't want it to get too popular, so we can never book it !!!! Jo, thank you for everything.... Maria, Duncan and Blaize we hope to see you soon xxxxxxxx ps Duncan says hi to his "bird" x
Thank you so much for the wonderful review and sharing Bamboo Garden, so very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and I look very forward to seeing all of you again and hopefully meeting the rest of the girls.
All the best
Beautiful garden property
As others have said, this is a serene and tranquil location. The welcome platter and rum punch was a perfect entree to the island. We rented a car from D and cannot thank him enough for his hospitality. Bamboo Cottage is well-appointed and Joanne is lovely and helpful. We snorkeled at Galleon Bay and had a great time overall! Enjoy Antigua!
Definition of wonderful
My fiance and I enjoyed every moment of our stay at Joanne's bamboo cottage. The cottage is better and even more beautiful than the pictures and quite spacious. It is tastefully decorated, impeccably clean and has such a warm energy to it, that it felt like home in a matter of hours. It was an absolute pleasure to have my breakfast every morning on the porch watching the hummingbirds flock to the feeder in the warm sunlight. There is a STUNNING beach about a 4-5 minute drive from the cottage and plenty of places for food, including a supermarket nearby if you wish to make your own meals. Joanne is a phenomenal host. She is so friendly and hospitable, and we had our privacy at the same time. Upon arrival she had an amazing tray of veggies, cheese, pita an homemade hummus waiting for us, a bottle of wine and some beer and water. Do listen to her recommendations for dinner and things to do. I also must include her furry companions, Max and Rosie. They were sweet and darling, just like their owner. We miss it already and its only been a couple of weeks. Looking forward to a return visit. Thanks again Joanne!!! <3
Gorgeous Lush Bungalow!
This is by far the coolest rental I have stayed in. From the time we arrived at the heart cutout on the front gate to saying goodbye to the puppies and hummingbirds, we were in love! Joanne was a gracious host and even had rum punch waiting for us when we arrived (which was necessary after the snowy travel we endured earlier that day). She helped us get a rental car which i would absolutely recommend and navigated us around Antigua's best spots! We cant wait to come back <3.
Thank you Shelby & Aaron for the review. Pleasure meeting and sharing with you both. Hopefully the weather was not too bad when you got home. Until we meet again, all the best. Jo
Bamboo Cottage is top-notch in every way. The well laid-out cottage and amenities make you feel at home right away. The wonderful breeze and swaying bamboos and palms are restorative. The peaceful garden and the varieties of hummingbirds, bananaqit and other birds will keep you delighted right from your own porch. The pool is well set amongst shade trees and a very generous size. And so refreshing on hot day! It's truly hard to leave the Cottage to go exploring beyond. Thank you Joanne for creating such a peaceful oasis and for all the knowledge and tips you shared with us to make our trip so enjoyable. We would return in a heartbeat!
Thank you for your review Danielle, it was a pleasure to meet you and Edward and share Bamboo Garden with you. I do hope I will have this pleasure again, enjoy your time in Montserrat. All the best Joanne
We were surrounded by the most gorgeous garden, absolute heaven. Bamboo Cottage is cozy, beautiful, tropical and private. Falmouth is a great area to base yourself, a quiet local family neighbourhood in walking distance to the sea, Bailey's supermarket, Crab Hole store, Ice cream parlour, bakery with fresh bread & croissants and a few restaurants. When not at the beach relaxing by the pool lined with a variety of exquisite palms or at night with a glass of wine by the pool with lighting highlighting the palms and the chirping of tree frogs in the back ground. We absolutely loved our stay in this hidden treasure and will definitely be back. Joanne thank you for sharing your amazing home and your great hospitality. We look forward to returning!
