Stunning Villa in English Harbour, Galleon Beach, Antigua, Caribbean - Peaceful Location, near Beach within snall, exclusive development
This lovely villa is set in 2/3rds of an acre with beautiful mature gardens, 25 years in the making, with palm trees, bougainvillea and flowering borders with an open plan layout with the living room, kitchen, and study at the front of the house looking out to fabulous sea views. The French doors from the living area lead out onto the balcony and on to the gardens, sunbathing terraces and private pool with its whirlpool spa. Perfect to relax in after a splendid lunch at one of the numerous restaurants offering international cuisine just minutes away or a family cook-in at the villa, which has all the amenities you would expect from a modern kitchen.
For the more adventurous, there are unlimited water sports and access to the Galleon Beach development’s own private beach and tennis courts, just a few hundred yards away. We are able to arrange day or night dives with PADI-qualified divers and boat trips on English Haven’s own boat, English Lady, by arrangement with the Captain. If fishing is your dream, then line fishing is possible from the jetties and for big game fishers, this can be from trawling with the English Lady, again, by arrangement.
Apart from the numerous activities for you to try there are some terrific, world class spectator events to see. These include the Antigua Classic Yacht race where English Harbour is the starting point for this race and The Antigua Race Week which is the third largest yacht race in the world and attracts the best ocean going yachts in existence. This is closely followed by the Test Match for all cricket fans and Antigua is synonymous with first class cricket and has produced many world-class cricketers including Sir Viv Richardson, Sir Curtly Ambrose and Sir Richie Richardson. So much to do and see you'll need to book for a month!
As part of our guest services we offer a complimentary collection from and to the airport with Oliver, our General Manager. If you would like to hire a car, we can arrange local car hire for you via Oliver who will take you straight from the airport to the Police station to obtain your required Antiguan driving licence and to collect your car. It couldn’t be more simple! On your arrival at the villa, our housekeeper of 25 years, Olivia, will happily show you around and help you to settle in.
If you would prefer not to drive we can arrange for Oliver to act as your chauffeur during your stay and will readily advise and drive you on tours of the island. For this service you would pay local rates independent of your villa rental costs.
