                  In the immediate area of The Carib House is world famous Rendezvous Beach. For the active, it is a mere 25 minute hike, or you can hire a boat to take you there. A rugged 4WD is also an alternative. Spring Hill Riding Stables, also in the vicinity, allows you yet again another form of transport. The Carib House is located in Turtle Bay, a secluded area featuring mainly owner occupied houses, away from the noise of nearby English and Falmouth Harbour villages, but close enough to partake in the action.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: Family Tubbs live in Antigua where the two boys attend school (Island Academy IB), Jonny does building/project management work, and Lou markets and runs The Carib House. Lou originally from Oz, and Jonny from the UK met in Antigua in 1995, fell in love with the island and each other and are now permanent citizens of this lovely place we call home

                  Why the Owner Chose Falmouth:
                  We built this property completing in 2002, initially as a family home, moving out for rentals, and moved to our own home when the kids started owning animals and needing their own space. We maintain the Carib House with a constant refurbishment program in place.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  The Carib house is an oasis on the southern end of the island - one minute you can be in the bustle of English ahd Falmouth Harbours, the next swinging in your hammock overlooking the beautiful sea views and enjoying the amazing space with your family and or friends.
