About this listing
Villa located in a quiet area not far from the bustle of English Harbour, and just around the corner from Rendezvous Beach. A great place to relax after visiting some great sites around Antigua. Your host will guide you to the best of these.
The Carib House is an airy luxurious Caribbean colonial style villa which can accommodate groups of up to 10 persons. Located on the south coast of Antigua, close to the entrance of Falmouth Harbour and only 5 minutes off the main road, it is perfect for a get-away holiday, honeymoon or a small conference. This vacation rental is also ideal for intimate wedding receptions or functions for 20-80 persons with spacious living and entertaining areas. Consider booking The Carib House for special events such as graduation celebrations or family reunions. The Carib House is available for rent for all of the annual calendar events in Antigua such as Carnival, Antigua Classic Yacht and Sailing Week Regattas.
Comprising a total of five generous double bedrooms, all screened and with ceiling fans, our luxury villa can be rented as a whole, or as a 3 or 4 bedroom villa.
Included in the rate are airport transfers, daily maid service and all government taxes.
Discounts are available for stays of two weeks or longer and agents inquiries are welcome.
The main house has three bedrooms on the same level as the kitchen and living areas, right alongside the large pool and terrace areas, with amazing views over Turtle Beach to the Caribbean Sea towards Guadeloupe, and back across Falmouth Harbour to the villages of English Harbour and Falmouth.
Above the house overlooking the pool is a guest cottage with ensuite, and below the main verandah is the garden apartment, with bathroom and kitchenette looking over the tropical lush gardens through which a network of paths lead you to the beach, pond and grounds.
Turtle Beach is a lovely secluded reef beach with a rock pool, great snorkelling and the best beach combing potential. Catch a sunset and views of Montserrat!
Also in the area is world famous Rendezvous Beach - a 25 minute hike for the adenturous, or a 15 minute 4WD through the national park. Sprinhill Riding Stables are also closeby with trail rides in the local area to help you explore it further.
Car recommended, Turtle Bay is on a peninsula about 5 minutues drive from the main road, where you can relax in the peace, but only be a short drive from the hustle and bustle of the harbour villages. Over 40 restaurants and bars to choose from, or we can help you select a chef who can look after you in the comfort of your own home away from home.

The views out to sea are breathless, the sheer amount of places to chill and relax while with your family and friends sumptuous, the location a little remote to make it enviable, the best guides at your beck and call make it a holiday to remember
