View from the porch where your hammock is waiting. En-suite bathroom on your right, and the French doors are your entrance way across from the Main House where there is a kitchen 25 feet away.
This little villa has a king size bed and an en-suite bathroom. There is a balcony with a matrimonial hammock to swing in with your partner with a rum punch. A truly unique little piece of paradise.
This cottage shares the kitchen with the Main House when needed. Situated close to the Main House, one can share the living room with other guests in the villa.
Frangipani is also part of the Pineapple House Main Complex, and is one of the seven villa's we have on the property.
As Frangipani is the closest house to the Main House, we hope that you and your partner will come and enjoy meeting the crew on the Super Yachts, as the Pineapple House is the preferred place to stay for those crew.
What an amazing stay on Antigua. It started with the spontaneous idea of Libby to go up to Shirleys heights with a self made rum punch to watch the sun set. The advice to visit rendevous and Halfmoon bay were as great as the St. Patricks day party. The pineapple house is a weird but amazing place with a welcoming host, friendly people, great punch and last but not least one of the coolest dogs ever; greetings to rumdog. We would advice everybody looking to meet people, have a drink and see what happens to stay here.
Libby is a very warm person and a great host. She created this unique place with open feel like no other. Great views of the harbor. $100 less then the lowest price hotel in that area and twice the charm. A "Must Stay"!
Thanks so much Gary for joining us for the days spent with me just prior to the RORC Carib 600 Race....I just loved it when we were all dancing in the living room just minutes after your arrival! You and Patty brought out the warmth in me as you are just the kind of guests I LOVE to have....Fun, happy, and excited about your upcoming race of 600 miles at sea,......YOU!!! are the people I designed The Pineapple House for.....Thank you both so much for being a part of it this year! See you soon, I sincerely hope!
Tom: We could not have asked for any more from our stay at Pineapple. It was a true joy to meet Libby, and we are already talking about when we can come back! From the rum punch on arrival, incredible parties, people, BBQ, rum dog, view, hammock, Lucky's pasta, the Napoleon, advice, and the attention to detail, it was the perfect place to stay and a true piece of paradise!
Gemma: The location goes without saying but it is Libby that made our experience as wonderful as it was. Always there to greet us with a hug and a smile and full of island knowledge, she looked after us like two of her own. We were sad to leave but will be back!! Xx
We already miss you! Thanks for the bottle of my favorite Cavalier RUM and the lovely jade necklace...Wearing it with pride...I so enjoyed our fun times together, and long to hear about your lobster lunch on the beach at Prickly Pear Island...a diamond in the rough! Also about Halcyon Cove as I always look for places to get away once in a while and troop off to enjoy other parts of the island with a friend...I'll pass on your details to Neil, and all sorts! THANKS SO MUCH AGAIN FOR SHARING YOUR TIME WITH US WHILE ON YOUR HOLIDAY...CHEEERS....Libby and all here...it's true Gemma, I felt that you were a part of my family and was happy to see you home safe and sound every evening...Lots and LOTS of love xxxx and of course THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!
Even though we sadly did not meet her, Libby was extremely good at communicating and very kindly upgraded us to a larger room which was full of character. The pineapple house is in a convenient position in English harbour and you can walk to Pigeon beach if you don't have a car
We missed each other by minutes, and wanted to meet you very much too! I would have been sure to show you to your room with our complimentary welcoming rum punch, which I gather you missed out on! I think I left Lucky with an over load of responsibility, which landed a shortfall of hospitality on our behalf...When and if you come back to Antigua, I certainly hope that we can share a sundowner together overlooking the harbour and get to know one another. Thank you so much, Silvia, for coming to Pineapple House to stay!
Frangipani is a charming little cabin in the Pineapple House complex. Libby's family went out of their way to welcome us with a rum punch and include is in the Pineapple House family. We loved the Christmas brunch where we enjoyed mingling with some of the local sailing community.
Libby's sister Dana went out of her way to introduce us to some of the local yachting community and the Antigua Yacht club for dinghy sailing. I can honestly say that without this community connection our holiday would not have been half as much fun.
The location was very conveniently located in walking distance to Pigeon Bay Beach, Falmouth Harbour, English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard as well as local restaurants and bars.
There was a draught and local water shortage in place during our stay but the hosts went out of their way to make us comfortable and ensure we always had water available when we needed it.
Thank you SO much for such a lovely review. Dana really enjoyed showing you the ropes, so to speak. I heard that you all had a really great time together. We are a closely knit family and so happy that you could feel a part of the Pineapple Christmas...awesome fun. Matteo kindly sent me photos of everyone there...great seeing Andy there, too....Christmas at Pineapple House is such a family feeling...Sam and Rick, Lisa...all the guests shared with me how nice it was that you could all meet. For me, Oliver, it is so very important that you feel very at home and comfortable. I am very grateful that you were so understanding about the water shortage in Antigua....I was in touch with Lucky daily on that account...It is one of the hardest parts of living there, and running a hospitality business, it is critical to have water. Thank you for being such a wonderful guest, and I hope that you will come back again to stay. Next time, I want to be there!
As everyone in Antigua knows, Libby is an amazing host !!
We had a fabulous time while staying at the Frangipani and would recommend this location to anyone. Next time you are in Antigua stay with Libby at one of her locations in the Pineapple house.
My fiancée and I stayed at Pineapple House for 9 days in April and I can honestly say that this was one of the best places we have stayed in across our travels around the world (we’ve stayed in over 100 hotels, hostels, B&Bs and guest houses globally).
#1 THE HOST: Libby was an AMAZING host! I don’t even know where to begin, she has truly built something special at Pineapple House that you need to experience firsthand, words can’t do it justice. We loved the welcoming rum punch drinks and laid back atmosphere upon arriving. Libby took the time to sit down with us and learn more about what we had planned and outside of the typical host questions, she really took the time to get to know us during our stay and by the end of our trip we felt like we were leaving friends whom we’ve known for years. Libby would go out of her way to ensure that we were comfortable in our rooms and she even went as far as to upgrade us to Cleopatra’s mid-way through our stay!
#2 The People at Pineapple House: Pineapple House also serves as a homestay for many of the Yacht / Sail crew during their stay in Antigua, which makes for an eclectic crowd. We met some of the nicest people from all walks of life and really enjoyed the evening chill outs and beach day! Also, there’s RUM DOG, the resident guard dog, who happens to be one of the nicest and most loyal pups.
#3 Location: A 3 minute walk to the Yacht Club and Marina, you can easily get groceries, taxis, buses and car rentals just down the road.
#4 Accommodations: What a STUNNING property. Our rooms had excellent views of Falmouth Harbour and you could watch all the super yachts and sail boats come in and out of the harbour. The other thing we noticed on our days exploring the country, was that almost every local we had met had heard of and knew Pineapple House and would say how nice the property was. The rooms were beautifully decorated, very tropical and comfortable. Definitely bring bug spray though as the mosquitoes get bad at night, although they didn’t bother us while sleeping thanks to the bug nets.
In short, DO stay here if you are looking to submerse yourself in the local yachting / sailing culture, meet a tonne of great people and make lifelong friends. DON’T stay here if you’re looking for a romantic getaway secluded from the world so that you and your partner can go off by yourselves. Pineapple House is a place for relaxing and chilling during the days and partying at night (if you feel like it of course :)).
