Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Together Karoll and Nick have lived on this island of Antigua for over 40yrs combined and love to draw on their experiences to help get ReefView guests to get out and about and really feel.... the REAL Antigua!
Why the Owner Chose Cades Bay: We purchased this ReefView property because of the amazing panoramic views and cooling breeze afforded to this beautiful unspoiled section of Antigua's south coastline.
The ReefView property itself is set in a profusion of tropical palms and exotic flowering plants - all self cultivated and collected as seeds and cuttings - yet the Penthouse apartment is located close enough to hear the waves lapping on the nearby shoreline.
Take the short 5 minute walk down into the small local fishing village of Urlings, giving our ReefView guests the chance to get to know the gentle local people of the REAL Antigua.
Whether you are rapping about cricket with the old boys over a rum and coke, down at Chappie's Bar - or purchasing bread from the village bakery or sampling any number of delicious local dishes and pastries sold along the road...... At the end of another beautiful day, enjoy a romantic Caribbean sunset cocktail with your bare feet in the warm sand at one of our local beach bars......
Step aboard a local number 22 bus - or jump into your rental vehicle - and within minutes you are nearing Jolly Harbour Marina and Golf Resort. ''Jolly Harbour is notable for its a fully stocked, air conditioned first world proper supermarket!
As well as possessing several banks with ATMs, pharmacy, a couple of bars and several restaurants dotted along the waterfront - Jolly Harbour is a popular start/finish point for many Antiguan water based excursions.
Everything is on offer here - from catamaran cruising and private yacht charters through scuba diving courses and deep sea fishing!!
The ReefView in-house 18ft speedboat Little Mermaid also departs from Jolly Harbour en route to great guided snorkeling at Cades Reef and perhaps even turtle and stingray spotting in Carlisle Bay.
Just ask Nick and Karoll for details on booking your ultimate day afloat.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The Penthouse apartment is furnished in its own comfortable beachy- Caribbean chic style - with lots of original artwork designed to compliment the stunning panoramic views provided by Mother Nature.
As owners we are on hand 24/7 to assist our guests to maximize their time here on Antigua.
Together we have many years of experience on land and in and on the waters of the nearby Caribbean Sea.
We will set you up with the latest info on: shopping: where to get whatever you need - or where the best restaurants to eat located - or how to find the best snorkeling, beach combing or shelling areas, catching local buses or renting a vehicle and heading off exploring around the island on your own schedule.
We have an in-house ReefView Boston Whaler speedboat available for charter
