Property description

Lush Tropical Setting

Bamboo Cottage is for nature lovers, set in a lush garden within a five minute walk to the sea. The cottage is nestled among palms and clusters of tall bamboo. Adding to the tranquillity, as the sway and rustle of these trees make music in the Caribbean breeze.

The Cottage is on two levels, the large verandah entrance leads into the open plan kitchen and living area which is well stocked, an island wth a gas range, a convection oven and microwave for cooking. Also an additional shower is located on the verandah for
your return from the beach or the pool. A spiral staircase goes up to the bedroom with an 'open plan bathroom' . Also another verandah off the bedroom which looks thru the bamboo out to sea
and the yachts in Falmouth Harbour.

Falmouth Harbour is the centre of the yachting industry in Antigua & Barbuda. This is on the southwestern side of the island and is the home of the internationally famous Classic Regatta followed by Antigua Sailing Week. Also a five minute drive to the beautiful Pidgeon Beach, Shirley Heights Lookout (Antigua's National Park) and Historic Nelson's Dockyard.

Bamboo House apartment #262413 is also available. Please see listing for details.

Bamboo Garden: The owner lives on the upper floor of Bamboo House, which is on the other side of the property from the cottage, However the property has been cleverly designed to give everyone their own access and privacy, while having the security of knowing there is someone around should you need any assistance.

The property has a very romantic and relaxed feeling and an ideal place to just sit back and enjoy, also a good base from which to do your exploring of the island.

Keywords: Garden, lush, warm, cozy, romantic, comfortable, countryside, peaceful, tropical, home, quiet, tranquil, cottage.

About the owner: Joanne, your host is a Canadian who has been living in Antigua for the past 24 years. She is an avid gardener and the property reflects this.

Having sold the restaurant she now turns her attention to the maintenance of her garden and the operation of a Farmer's Market. Want to feel at home, Joanne is your best host!

Why the Owner Chose Falmouth Harbour:
I had the cottage built in 2009 in my garden as I think it is a very beautiful place and wanted to share it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The sound of the birds singing during the day and the tree frogs in the evening add to swimming tin the pool that is surrounded by bamboo and palm trees and is even more beautiful in the evening in the bath temperture water and the star clustered skies.
