Property description

Sugar Shack Cottage is located at the bottom of a 2.5 acre estate, surrounded by a mature tropical garden. It is cooled by trade winds, shaded by trees but alight with morning sunshine. Two buildings are joined by a covered patio and wooden deck with built-in Jacuzzi, a perfect area to enjoy outdoor living including al fresco meals. The main structure comprises a bedroom with king-size bed, a small bathroom, living-room and kitchen. The second bedroom with two single beds and ensuite bathroom is separate across the patio. The well-equipped kitchen can be opened up to become an indoor/outdoor bar area. The living room sitting area can be used as a sleeper for kids. WIFI is available throughout and there is a TV, a Bose music system and DVD player.
Sugar Shack is a cozy, comfortable spot for a Caribbean holiday with a difference, a little haven in the vicinity of an array of possible activities.


Sugar Shack History: We completed the construction of our house on a 2.5 acre plot on the hill in 1989 and built the Sugar Shack at the bottom of the garden in 1994. It started out as a one-room guest house for our visitors and grew to suit the needs of our overseas family and friends. The second bedroom and bathroom have just been added. We are only now starting to rent the property because we are retired and looking for ways to keep busy and stay in touch with the world.

Points of Interest: There is only a garden-view from the cottage but by walking to the top of the same garden one can enjoy the ever-changing spectacle of sunsets. Sugar Shack is private and yet within easy access of a large variety of activities. Dickenson Bay is a 5-minute walk (downhill!). It is the location of Rex Halcyon Cove, Sandals, Antigua Village, Siboney and Buccaneer Beach Club. Watersport facilities such as jet- and water-skiing, several restaurants, a Casino and a nightclub are available to visitors who do not stay at any of the hotels. We are within 5 - 10 minutes by car from town, a giant new supermarket, an 8-theater Cinemaplex and three shopping centers. 10 minutes away, Cedar Valley, an 18-hole Golf course welcomes visitors daily.

Do you love dogs?: Our five dogs are kept on the other side of the fence unless you request their company. They are not allowed on the patio or deck of the Cottage but will gladly come and visit in the garden if you wish.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We came to Antigua from Switzerland on behalf of my husband's employer over 30 years ago and fell in love with the Caribbean way of life, particularly the temperate climate. We are now retired and finding ways to stay in touch with the world.

Why the Owner Chose Dickenson Bay:
We completed the construction of our house on a 2.5 acre plot on the hill in 1989 and built the Sugar Shack at the bottom of the garden in 1994. It started out as a one-room guest house for our visitors and grew to suit the needs of our overseas family and friends. We have just completed the second bedroom and are only now starting to rent the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is only a garden-view from the cottage but by walking to the top of the same garden, one can enjoy the ever-changing spectacle of sunsets. The location of Sugar Shack is private and yet within easy access of a large variety of activities. Dickenson Bay is a 5-minute walk (downhill!). It is the location of Rex Halcyon Cove, Grande Sandals Resort, Antigua Village, Siboney and Buccaneer Beach Club. Watersport facilities such as jet- and water-skiing, several restaurants and a Casino are available to visitors who do not stay at any of the hotels. We are within 5-10 minutes by car from town as well as a giant new supermarket (Epicurean), an 8-theater Cinemaplex and three shopping centers. 10 minutes away, Cedar Valley, an 18-hole Golf course, welcomes visitors daily. The cottage is cozy and convenient and although it can sleep 4 adults and 2 kids, we recommend a maximum of 4 for a comfortable stay. Our five dogs are kept on the other side of the fence unless you request their company. They are not allowed on the patio or deck of the Cottage but will gladly come and visit with you in the garden if you wish.
