Cades Bay cottage description

Fully self contained, complete with elevated viewing lounge and an innovative fully enclosed “outdoor” room with rainfall shower, the 'Beach Cottage' is nestled amongst coconut and golden bamboo palms, bougainvillea, and banana trees in its own tropical courtyard - complete with tree frogs and hummingbirds.

Designed primarily with couples in mind, this whimsical fully screened 'cottage' comes complete with cooling porcelain floor tiles throughout - and an elegant queen sized bed, ready for romance, with marquee' style drapes in soft muslin.
Furnished with Egyptian cotton sheets, soft pillows and loads of extra cushions. Side tables and bedside reading lamps plus quiet overhead remote control fan

The panoramic viewing lounge, is also upstairs, with its vaulted roof, fixed ceiling fan, additional queen size daybed and wide, screened windows, provides a bright breezy corner from which to check out everything going off the South Coast - or to toast the sun as it sets for another day - cocktail at the ready....

From the stunning blue hues of the Caribbean Sea, the lush green Shekerley Mountains, Cades Reef and palm tree fringed beach in front – to the nearby islands of Montserrat, Redonda and Guadeloupe, this is one happening vista!

The Cottage also enjoys the use of it’s own compact yet fully loaded galley style kitchen and breakfast bar plus outdoor dining options with a large gas BBQ grill and dining set located within your own secluded courtyard.
Inside the downstairs lounge area is a sofa/pull out bed for that extra friend or family member.

According to our guests, it’s the big grill and the “outdoor” shower area in particular which really make for that enhanced feeling of freedom which is the essence of Caribbean ‘al fresco style’ living.

Other amenities include all linens and towels, FREE WiFi, Cable TV with 80+ channels, CD/Radio, IPOD docking station, alarm clock radio, coffee maker, fridge/freezer, gas 2 burner stove, microwave, blender, electric kettle, iron, hairdryer, toaster and toaster oven - even a vacuum cleaner!
All appliances and electrical outlets are 220 volts.

ReefView is rural yet convenient situated only steps away from a long deserted sandy beach fringed with palm trees. Yet we are also just 7 mins from an enormous well stocked supermarket, post office, banks, bars shops, restaurants, fitness centre, spa, 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool and full service dive centre and marina for charter yachts or deep sea fishing excursions.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: Nick and Karoll Williams, both originate from the UK - but between them have over 35 years worth of widely varying experience living in the West Indies. Nick's background is the Sea. Firstly as a marine biologist and latterly as a Commercially Endorsed Yachtmaster and engineer. Although it was originally only a 6 week contract that brought Nick to Antigua, it quickly became apparent that he had found the place he would ultimately call home for the next decade and beyond. Nick's wife Karoll, on the other hand, had sampled the delights of a couple of West Indian islands, before finally settling in Antigua. Formerly a Vice President for Lancome International Skin care in London, with her specialty in Sales and Marketing, she was eager to escape the cut and thrust of the Cosmetics Industry which had brought her much success. Nick and Karoll were married on a charming deserted isle called Prickly Pear - just off Antigua's North Shore, and from there embarked upon the journey that would ultimately lead to the creation of ReefView. 'All along - with our backgrounds in travel, hospitality and service - we hoped to create a little piece of paradise that is the quintessential, real Caribbean. However rather than merely unleash our unsuspecting guests upon the Island - it is our hope that with our combined knowledge we can tailor the perfect holiday to any group or given individual's needs.' Both Nick and Karoll are passionate about Antigua's nature and its environment. ReefView's location, close to a small local fishing village near a stretch of sandy undisturbed beach, in itself offers a superb platform from which to observe some of the island's pristine coastal habitats and wildlife. And they have assembled an impressive array of 'toys' with which to observe it up close and personal - from Hobie kayaks to their own ReefView powerboat available for private charter to go snorkeling and fishing out on nearby Cades Reef and beyond.

                          Why the Owner Chose Cades Bay:
                          ReefView is unique firstly because of its location in tranquility and seclusion on Antigua's stunning south coast - yet its close ties to the community - for travelers who wish to discover the REAL Antigua. The Beach Cottage is truly a one off design, conceived and built by Nick himself to maximise all the best attributes of the surrounding locale. Utilising his knowledge of boats, guests comment that he has managed to create a charming and romantic 'home from home', with great air flow that epitomises the very ethos of Caribbean living. At ReefView we are all about promoting the LOCAL experience, which our guests find altogether more wholesome and rewarding - as opposed to hiding away in a generic style resort which could be just about anywhere the sun shines. We give our guests the inside track on 'living local', riding local buses and eating out in some of our many but perhaps less well known local eateries and food stands - and in so doing - helping you stretch your precious money that much further for maximum value and enjoyment. Altogether this creates an authentic 'homely' experience so that you will always remember your trip to Antigua - and to ReefView.....

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Nick is a knowledgeable and highly observant fly fishing guide - and simple a walk up the beach with him can be an eye-opening experience with its abundant bird and sea life. And for the more adventurous, Nick runs personalized fishing expeditions, deep into the mangroves to observe this amazing ecosystem firsthand and perhaps have the chance to do battle with sizeable Snapper, elusive Permit or mighty Tarpon on the coastal flats. Karoll, when not at the computer dealing with bookings, is most likely to be found tending to her beloved garden, most of which has been carefully nurtured from seeds and cuttings taken from here and there over the years. Alternatively fantastic smells may indicate she is cooking up a storm in the kitchen where she excels as a gourmet chef. 'Immersed in tropical flowers, serviced by prolific numbers of hummingbirds on the one side and with its stunning views - out over the sea on the other, at ReefView we hope we have created an environment where our guests immediately feel relaxed.' 'You may do as much or as little as you wish, but everyone should feel safe in the knowledge that anything you may need is close at hand. We will do everything in our power to ensure everyone enjoys their dream Antiguan getaway from start to finish. If you need something, you need only ask. Welcome home - you are part of the family!' Nick and Karoll Williams
