Gordon House offers the best of many worlds. Our guests enjoy the privacy of a private home rental, with many of the amenities and services frequently offered by more inclusive resorts. The options are yours. Even if you have secured a rental car, you can be met at the airport and chauffeured to the villa. Because of our long standing relationship with Hertz, your vehicle can be delivered to the house to avoid any delay at the airport. Furthermore, if you choose to utilize our housekeeping services, you can have all of your meals prepared for you, the kitchen stocked to your liking, and all of the household chores and laundry done for you. What could be more relaxing than spending the entire day at the beach, to then return home to a welcoming, clean house and a fully prepared dinner. When you are ready to leave Antigua, you can either drop your rental car off at Hertz or leave it at the house and be chauffeured to the airport. Whatever works for you.
Gordon House is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, ocean-front home on Antigua's breathtaking East coast. This 3600 square foot home boasts phenomenal water views, open air dining and a sea side patio for private tanning and swimming. Gordon House highlights scenic views in every direction, overlooking historic Devils Bridge and Dian Bay.
The swimming off the private, veranda at Gordon House is in picturesque, crystal clear, turquoise water that can only be found in this type of tropical paradise. It’s a wonderful spot for sunbathing, snorkeling, and boating. In the past, we’ve had guests arrive by boat, anchor out in the bay and travel back and forth from the house via dinghy. Dian Bay is also the perfect place to launch the two paddle boards that we have at the villa for our guests to use. Rolston Roberts, a local Antiguan, can pick you up right off your own veranda for inshore or offshore fishing. Very exciting!
Antigua emphasizes its 365 beaches, one for every day of the year. If you get the urge to venture from your own, private swimming spot at the Gordon House, Long Bay, a stunning, white sand beach, which is just a short 4 minute walk from the villa, and has consistently been voted one of the top 5 beaches on the island, year after year.
