Half Moon Bay cottage description
Tree Tops is located on the south-east coast on the grounds of DOLPHIN VIEW ESTATE, with a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean. The mile long beautiful Half Moon Bay beach, one of Antigua's finest (often totally secluded), is located just minutes away and was voted by the US Travel Channel in the TOP 10 WORLD-WIDE.
Dolphins and migrating whale pods are often spotted from the open air decks of Tree Tops. This very private, secluded hilltop retreat is ideal for the nature lover, writer, artist or recluse - the only sounds one falls asleep or awakens to are the sounds of nature.
Tree Tops is cooled by constant Atlantic trade winds and overlooks the treetops of a steep incline. Local hummingbirds and yellow-breast banana quit birds are fed daily, and can be observed from the verandas.This two bedroom, two bath villa is fully screened and cooled by ceiling fans, and the master bedroom is also air-conditioned. The kitchen is fully equipped (microwave, dishwasher, food processor, gas barbecue grill, etc.).
Daily maid service is included.

Owner response: Thanks for your review Adam..and so happy you enjoyed our little slice of Paradise ...come back soon! warm regards martha and tony
We have had the pleasure of staying at Treetops several times. It has always been the perfect vacation for us. Leisurely breakfasts on the porch, but you must feed the little birds and hummingbirds first so you can enjoy watching their antics while you drink your coffee. Eat in or eat out, the choice is yours.The porches are perfect spots to read and relax when you are not off exploring the island or swiming at Half Moon Bay (the best beach on the island!). After dark, the sky is crystal clear so bring some binoculars as the lower porch offers a beautiful view of the southern sky and the Milky Way overhead. Our favorite part of the island is English Harbor and Falmouth Bay which is only 20 minutes from Treetops, has some good restaurants and let's not forget about the gelato! Second favorite spot is Turners Beach but there is no shade, except at the beach bar, so you must be very careful in the Sun. You can see Martinique across the water. It is definitely worth the ferry ride to see the remains of the volcanic eruption from several years ago. Martha and Tony are wonderful hosts and are always happy to make you feel welcome. When you return, you feel like you are coming home. We look forward to our next visit. Hope you enjoy your stay at Treetops as much as we have!

You should go.
You should go.
My husband and I stayed at Tree Tops last summer and I recommend that you consider staying too. Picture, as you sit in your cushioned chair, yellow birds dancing in the trees next to the main poach, butterflies flitting among the flowers, blue sky, blue waters and peaceful green hills; after dark the stars glisten brightly. The quite of the place allows you to pause, to reflect and renew. You have plenty of room in the house and on the porches to be alone or to share space. Read, sip a cool drink, have a real conversation. You are living in the open air with the interior comforts of a luxury home. The warm, soft, sensual breezes are soothing and set a pace that calms the mind and body. The water of Half Moon Bay is warm and soothing for swimming or diving. The drive to town is picturesque; and you can’t rush anywhere. Restaurants are casual, tasty and fun or island elegant and gourmet. You can enjoy world class historic sites and local shopping. You will find more to do than you have time to do and the best is that the choice to do as little or as much as you want is yours. The multi-cultural island reflects Caribbean, American and European heritage. Visit or view nearby islands like Montserrat and its demonic volcano. Your host and hostess are gracious, accommodating and never intrusive. Travel is convenient and, reliable and reasonably priced. The office, the city, the winter, whatever, will always be around; take a break. Enjoy, A and D

About the owner: Captain Tony is an Airline Pilot for the regional Caribbean airline and is an avid boater spending much time on the sea. Martha is a scuba diving instructor and travel writer and photographer and is also an avid boater enjoying cruising the waters of Antigua with her Captain husband. Guests of Treetops are often included in boating excursions and beach pic nics to the remote nearby islands around Antigua. Martha also enjoys entertaining and often invites guests of TREETOPS to join in a Caribbean party of a lunchtime garden party. Guests privacy is respected if one prefers solitude to socializing but the Gilke's first hand knowledge of Antigua as long time residents is on offer if needed by guests of Treetops.
Why the Owner Chose Half Moon Bay:
TREETOPS is located on the grounds of DOLPHIN VIEW ESTATE, home of the Gilkes. Entry is by a private drive direct to the cottage. Guests have total privacy if desired or have access to the island knowledge and expertise of Tony and Martha. Tony and Martha have lived in Antigua since 1984 and decided to add TREETOPS to their HALF MOON ESTATE as they love to have guests and friends in residence and this was an ideal way to enjoy company and share their island paradise with visitors. TREETOPS is for the guest who wants to "get away from it all" and enjoy privacy and solitude and nature. It is ideal for a writer, painter, reader, star gazer ( as the black night skies are ideal for viewing the heavens). In addition to TREETOPS guests have use of "MARTHAS POINT OF VIEW", a nearby spacious wooden deck perched high over HALF MOON BAY BEACH with a magnificent view of 3 nearby islands and the Atlantic ocean.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
As long time residents of Antigua, Martha and Tony have a unique knowledge of the island. In fact, Martha has written an INSITE TRAVEL GUIDE to Antigua and they can give advise on the best things to do on island. They often include Treetop Guests in adventures on both land and sea, and add a personal touch to a vacation in Paradise. As a professional diving instructor Martha can offer scuba diving lessons to the really adventuresome guests. If guests would rather have total privacy in the very secluded TREETOPS this is respected and guests can truly escape for the world and enjoy the nature surrounding TREETOPS. Dolphins and whales are sometimes sighted off of Little Cove Bay below tree tops and the surrounding trees around TREETOPS are filled with local bird life. More on the specific birds of TREETOPS is found on the web site.
