St. John's guest house description

Gray Gate is a Walled Indoor\Outdoor Estate Home in the very best neighborhood on the Island and is about 5 miles from the Airport and 5 miles to St. John's. The house can be rented with Living Room, Front Porch, Back Porch with Ocean View, Laundry Room, Kitchen and Dining Room as a 1 Bedroom, 3 Bedrooms or a 4 Bedrooms. We have a separate Guest House that allows this flexibility and the main house bedrooms can be locked off. So you can rent just the Guest House and the living areas of the main house or just the Main House or the Main House and the Guest House. The living room is very large and open on 2 ends and has a great view of the ocean. This home is really a indoor\outdoor home with large glass doors on 1 side facing due east and 14ft teak folding doors on the other to capture the super trade winds that cool the house. You don't need AC in this home! Year Round Antiuga Temps are about 73 to 86 Degrees. It cools off nicely at night.


The dining room is completely open on 2 sides and the table can seat up to about 8 with the included extra table top. Connected to the Living Room and Dining Room is the Kitchen. In the kitchen you will find everything you need to cook up a fabulous meal and you can see the ocean while cooking! Included in the main house is the master bedroom with a new tempurpedic King Mattress with nice new bedding and lots of King pillows and lots of closet space. The master bedroom has a connecting Bathroom with bathtub. You can see the ocean from this bedroom. There is a full bathroom with a shower just off the hall and that is next to the front bedroom. This front bedroom is large and also has a new King Bed with new bedding and lots of pillows. There is a sitting area and lots of new lighting and closet space.

Across from the hall bath is the card room\bedroom. This room is really 2 rooms(a wall was taken out) and it is very large with lots of closet space, sitting area with coffee table and about 6 chairs and 2 twin beds with all new bedding and new pillows. You can see the ocean from this room. The guest house is separate from the main house, but has access to the Living Room, Porches, Dining Room and Kitchen. The Guest House has a Queen Bed with new bedding and pillows, large walk in closet and full bathroom with shower\tub. On our property we also have a full Laundry Room with twin wash tubs and a clothes washing machine, Tool Shed and Generator Room. There is a large Driveway and lots of room for parking for as many as 10 cars. We rent an economy car from Lille for about $200 per week at the airport. She will have the paperwork done and the car will be waiting for you when you clear customs.

Antigua has been my families Island home for 40 years and this home has everything you might need for a nice Holiday. We have had the same housekeeper who comes on Mondays for 36 years and the same Gardner for 18 years. They have known the house for 36 years so if you need some help they are close by.

                                  Blue Waters, Antigua, Caribbean (5 Miles to Airport or St. Johns in Upscale Neighborhood) -- From our home you can walk to a secluded Beach that has great sea shelling in less than 10 minutes & remember Antigua has 365 beaches! The really fancy Blue Waters Hotel is a 3 min walk from our home & you can pay a fee to use all the amenities: the pools, tennis courts, table tennis, pool table & so much more. You can also walk to the very nice Cove Restaurant near the Blue Waters property for lunch & dinner or just a short drive to the Islands finest Restaurant LeBistro (Google it). We like to go to Dickenson Beach for the people watching & Sneaky Pete's Beach Bar - ask for Dave, he will take good care of you! Dickenson's Beach is one of the best beaches- about a 5 min car ride from home. We will tell you about the secret beach front parking area. On Dickenson Beach you can arrange almost everything including Horseback Riding, Scuba Diving, Fishing, Sailing, Jet skiing and so much more!
