Beautiful Tropical Garden

Located at the foot of Monks Hill and within minutes walk to the sea and a short drive to English Harbour and yachts from all over the world. Bamboo Place is nestled in a lush tropical setting overlooking Falmouth Harbour.

The property consists of the Bamboo House and Bamboo Cottage connected by a swimming pool with a beautiful palm filled garden, rare giant White Bird of Paradise and clusters of tall bamboo adding to the tranquility, as the sway and rustle of these trees make music in the Caribbean breeze.

Bamboo House is a two story, the main level apartment is a spacious two bedroom, two bath with a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area and a huge adjoining verandah with dining table,sofa & large double hammock for reading or siesta's.

There is also a one bedroom, 2 story cottage available. Please see VRBO listing #266897.

The apartment and the cottage #266897 can be rented separately or as one. The owner lives on the upper floor of Bamboo House, however the property has been cleverly designed to give everyone their own access and privacy, while having the security of knowing there is someone around should you need any assistance.

The property has a very romantic and relaxed feeling and is an ideal place to just sit back and enjoy, also a good base from which to do your exploring of the Island.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place this is, the garden alone is one of the most beautiful I have ever been in. Bamboo Garden is so special, serene, private and wonderfully relaxing. The house is so comfortable and perfectly setup for 2 couples to share and still have their own space.

Antigua is beautiful and everyone was so friendly and helpful, this is also a perfect location in which to do your island touring then come home and hang out by the pool. We also love being in the Falmouth/English Harbour area, lots of good restaurants, hiking, beautiful beaches, snorkling & lots of nice people. This was our third visit and we will defineatly be back again. Thank you so much Joanne.

Beautiful and relaxing, Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Joanne for another very pleasant vacation. This is our second time at Bamboo House, my daughter's third. It was a very pleasant experience and Joanne is a wonderful host. If you want to experience Antigua, especially the Falmouth/English Harbor area, this a great place to base from. A rental car is necessary as so many things to see and do. You can choose to eat in or go to several nearby restaurants. You can hang at the private pool or choose from a myriad of beaches within a reasonable drive. When your day is over you can relax with the island night sounds with a rum punch and a book or attend a barbecue at Shirley Heights or events at the Dockyards. The bedrooms are separated, on an each side of the unit allow for individual privacy. The garden and grounds are beautiful as Joanne is an accomplished gardener and it is fun to watch the turtles from the veranda. It is hard not to feel at home here, we will return.

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Joanne's Bamboo House Feb 17-24, 2017. The house, gardens and pool are exactly as they are pictured. Joanne was wonderful and helpful. There are lots of sounds at night and the windows have to be left open with fans running, so if you aren't a sound sleeper I would suggest ear plugs.

We throughly enjoyed the house and the pool. There is a small local market close by and it is necessary to rent a car while visiting. The beaches are beautiful and all the local people were helpful and nice. We would definitely visit again.

The Perfect Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Joanne's place was the perfect home to experience the true Antigua.

Joanne was very welcoming and we arrived to a delicious platter of humus, coupled with a jug of the local Christmas drink, sorrel.

Joanne was on hand if needed and she happily shared with us her knowledge of the local area.

Her tropical garden was truly beautiful, the perfect place to relax and to enjoy the pool.

The house itself was spacious, clean and very well equipped. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

Thank you Joanne for making this a very memorable holiday, we hope to come back soon.
