Indian Town Point villa description
Villa Kulala is a luxurious four bedroom property on the east coast of Antigua. Sleeping eight people comfortably, the house is in a unique setting at the entrance to Dian Bay and is exposed to constant cooling trade-winds.
The property is very private, sitting at the end of a promontory known as Dumm’s Point. Long Bay, one of the best of Antigua’s 365 beaches, is only a short walk away.
Kulala sits above a 40 foot cliff and has spectacular views South across Dian Bay. The view encompasses a national park with Devil’s Bridge. There is private access to the sea from the property.
The villa has been designed as a series of interconnected buildings linked by paths and gardens planted with a wide variety of tropical plants. Throughout there is a Balinese theme, whether picked up by the columns specially hand-carved in Bali, the colour scheme, or the Indonesian furniture.
The living and dining areas have been designed to be as open as possible and to take advantage of the breeze. The sitting room leads onto a large pergola-covered terrace with a view across the bay on one side and an inner courtyard with a Balinese style garden on the other.
The swimming pool has an infinity edge which melts into the bay beyond.
There are four bedrooms: bedrooms one and two have king-size four poster beds from Bali, bedroom three has twin beds and bedroom four a king-size double bed. The 4 bedrooms all have unique four poster airconditioned beds which allow for the guests to sleep in cooled comfort whilst still keeping the window louvers open and each has an en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom has a rain shower and bathtub. All the other bedrooms have walk-through changing rooms with hanging space and a shower. Each bathroom has a different set of hand carved stone washbasins. Please note that there are no interconnecting bedrooms, therefore the villa might not be suitable for younger children.
The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a Viking gas range cooker, dishwasher and refrigerator/freezer and Chalon worktable and storage cupboards.

This beautiful home is in an ideal setting. The large kitchen is well-equipped with anything you might want. The bedrooms are large, complete with climate-controlled beds and outside showers! The pool is great and there is a stairway leading right down to the ocean and swimmable bay! Wonderful vacation!

Our Idea of Happiness
Our Idea of Happiness
My husband and I had great expectations about Villa Kulala but our stay during two weeks in August exceeded them. We immediately realized the owners have the same idea of luxury we have, which has to do with privacy and beauty and nature. Of course, being low season (and in Antigua they take the low season very seriously) once we reached the villa we had very few reasons to leave it: the restaurants of the area were closed by night and the few supermarkets are quite far. But if you enjoy calm, silence (apart from frogs and crickets) and aloneness as much as we do, the place is paradise. You wake up in the morning to a view of incredible beauty: you find yourself on a breathtaking promontory, slightly beaten during our summer by a wind that kept insects away and pelicans happily flying and diving all around us. The pool and the garden are a peaceful place to lounge and relax, and every couple of hours we would go snorkeling. A few rock steps take you to the sea, where the tide is always quite low and at the right time of the day you enjoy the company of small barracudas, shy turtles, and millions of small fishes. During our stay we had no neighbours apart from Chistiane, who lives two houses away and is very helpful. The only people we saw were the clients of the Verandah, the resort built on the opposite side of the promontory, who sail inside the bay. By night the front terrace becomes a place for meditation and stargazing. Villa Kulala really is a place with a mystical quality, we would recommend it to travellers who like being on their own, or to group of friends who enjoy being away from it all. We headed back home rested and fit and ready for our busy lives, happy to know we might be back one day to Kulala to shake the stress off.

Owner response: I am so glad that Kulala lived up to your expectations, and in fact exceeded them! We love Kulala for its peace and quiet, and it is so nice to hear we are not the only ones who do. Thank you for kind words, and we look forward to another visit from you both one of these days.

We will be back
We loved staying at Kulala. What a beautiful peaceful view to wake up to every morning and star watching at night. We toured round the whole island, and loved Antigua. Three nights we had a private chef, Vere. He cooked the most delicious food and we had the best seat in town for dining! We would highly recommend Vere if you are looking for a relaxing evening at home. We also did the zip-line and that was lots of fun. The company is very safety oriented which is what you want. All in all everything was fantastic and we loved everything. Will be back.

Booked the villa for my husband's 40th birthday with a group of friends. During the planning process, Amanda was very helpful and prompt with her responses. Once we walked passed the gate, the stunning views took our breath away. Originally I planned day trips, places to see, things to do around the island. After our arrival, we didn't want to leave the villa. Snorkeling right off the property, good sized pool, Long Bay beach within walking distance, and meals at Mama's made this the perfect relaxing vacation we needed.

TranquilityGuest comment entered by owner
Kulala, as the name implies, has a wonderfully soothing and tranquil atmosphere, in which it is so easy to lost track of time and the outside world - so much so that I cannot remember how many our previous visits have numbered!

We all had an incredible time. The location is amazing, everything was so relaxing . Villa Kulala is on our list of top five vacation spots. Everything was just dreamy. We got everything we expected and more, the place is clean, well maintained and I would recommend this spot in a heartbeat. The snorkelling just at the bottom of the property was wonderful. We were happy to just be at Villa Kulala and enjoy the view. The star gazing at night was breathtaking. We will be back, I am sure.

An amazing island destination

Our family had the opportunity to spend New Years here at Villa Kulala. The villa is as spectacular as the pictures make it to be. It was lovely to travel so far and only find fantastic surprises in store for us. The island of Antigua is wonderful to explore with any range of activities for families of all ages. The team at Villa Kulala had everything ready for us and were available for any need during our stay. The owners have built a truly remarkable destination on a wonderful island.

5 StarsGuest comment entered by owner
We found Kulala to be a wonderful oasis and returned this year for the 2nd year in a row to spoil ourselves all over again. it’s extremely private, the grounds are pristine and manicured beautifully, and in almost every direction there’s a million dollar view. the spacious and elegant living quarters are something you’d see in exclusive home magazines. the gourmet kitchen is a pleasure to cook in and the air-conditioned beds kept even us texans comfortable. My favorite spot is the outdoor patio facing the atlantic ocean. I love to sit and watch the waves rolling across the reef throughout the day and feel the cooling trade winds. We loved to start our day by strolling down the stone path to enjoy the private access to the bay. It’s also the perfect place to end the day with a glass of wine or whatever you like. we also found antigua to be very easy to navigate once you get your bearings. If rest and relaxation in world-class caribbean accommodations interests you, Kulala will spoil you forever!

Ooh La La, Villa Kulala
Greetings to all those who follow our wonderful adventure here. We hope you will be greeted by the beautiful Green Mango Hummingbird, the songful Bananaquit and perhaps be lucky enough to spot the Yellow-Crown Night Heron. The wind, the warmth, the sun, the crashing waves, all heighten the wonderful romance we shared at this villa.

About the owner: James and Amanda live in London, but spend as much time as they can in Antigua. One of these days they hope to be able to spend weeks at a time, especially in winter, enjoying island life.
Why the Owner Chose Indian Town Point:
We always wanted to build a house in the sun, and when we saw the land at Dumm's Point we knew we had found the perfect location to do just that. The villa has been designed to take advantage of the cooling Trade Winds and the wonderful views, you can see the sea from every room in the house.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Everytime we arrive at the villa we are entranced by the views. Looking out at Dian Bay with its fantastic colours, sitting on the terrace with a drink in hand watching the pelicans swoop in front of us, the Trade Winds keeping us cool and the sound of the waves below us, we cannot believe how lucky we are to own this little piece of paradise If you are looking for peace and quiet then this is the place for you.
