SHELL VILLA AND COTTAGE

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Shell Villa is tucked away inside Turtle Bay on the south coast of Antigua, just west of Falmouth Harbour. Enjoy utter privacy and quiet as you sit on its large ocean-front deck and gaze at the spectacular sunsets over gently smoking Montserrat. Surrounded by stunning vistas of ocean and the gentle slopes surrounding Rendezvous Bay, not a single building mars the view - a very private piece of paradise.

Guests have the option of being met at the airport by Valentino, who will drive you to the Villa, or guide you if you hire a car.


The property has four double bedrooms, all with air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. Beds can be made up as king size or full size twins as preferred. The fifth bedroom has full size bunk beds. Three king rooms are located in the main 3 bedroom villa and the 4th king and bunk room are in the separate 2 bedroom Shell Cottage.


Shell Villa has a large kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a spacious living/dining area with high speed internet.


Shell Cottage has two bedrooms on the second floor with outstanding views across Turtle Bay to Rendezvous. The master bedroom has ensuite access and the second bedroom is a bunk room with two full size single bunks and shared access to the bathroom. On the ground floor there is an airy living room with open porch and sun deck as well as WC and kitchenette with fridge/freezer, microwave and toaster. It is a hop and a skip to the pool and sun deck of the main villa which has a full size well-equipped, chef grade kitchen and dining capacity for 10. The use of Shell Cottage will not be available to parties of six or less without the payment of $150 per night supplement (contact the owners direct).  The Cottage is not available to be rented separately.

The property is fully equipped and furnished and has weekly garden, pool and maid service. The gardens and pool (with sun deck and barbecue) are planted with gorgeous bougainvillaea, hibiscus, and palms.

Self sustaining and environmentally friendly, Shell Villa has solar panels with a backup generator and also has mains electricity. Voltage is US style 110/60 cycles. Additionally, its large water cistern enables you to enjoy pure rainwater for drinking, showering etc.

The gentle lap of waves on the shore lulls you to sleep, and greets you again as you wake to that wonderful Caribbean morning light. A short stroll along Turtle Bay there is a small pebble beach with sea shells and sea birds aplenty.

The Villa and the Cottage feature original art works by Jenny Freestone, co-owner with her husband David. Jenny is a well-known printmaker whose work is exhibited in a number of art collections in the US, including the Library of Congress. Original water colours of local scenes were painted by her when the family lived in Antigua in the ‘80s. See further www.jennyfreestone.com

While the time you spend at the villa ensures quiet seclusion, there is plenty to do in the nearby environment. Falmouth Harbour and Nelsons Dockyard in English Harbour (a UNESCO World Heritage site) are a five-minute drive from the villa. They are visited by some of the most fabulous yachts in the world - catch them with binoculars as they majestically sail across the ocean view from Shell Villa. The constant flow of private yachts, their crew and guests, ensure a lively social scene and a plentiful supply of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars in these harbours.

For those who are athletic, more adventurous and energetic, there are some spectacular walks along the coast to totally deserted beaches, and wonderful views from some of the historic ruins around English Harbour and Shirley Heights. There are also tennis and squash courts nearby.as well as horseriding, scuba-diving and sailing.
