Cliffside is a spacious 2 BD/2 BA split Caribbean get-away with breath taking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Antigua's off shore islands.

About The Owner

Outgoing, Adventurous, like to take the path less traveled to see and experience all we can. We love to entertain guest whether we are at Cliffside in Antigua or here in Florida.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2001

Why The Owner chose Saint Philip

Villa Cliffside was a dream from my childhood as I visited Antigua with my parents yearly. So in 1999 I built this beautiful villa with the original openness of the Caribbean always in mind.

What makes this villa unique

While either living there or just visiting these days I love to walk the mature gardens around the villa and am always amazed at the beauty of the turpentine, lime and false almond trees on the property. We love putting out cane sugar for the local finches, (Sky Hounds) as my husband calls them.

Long Bay beach is short walk down the hill and a morning walk to Devils Bridge is both heathy and the sunrises are magnificent.

We certainly are fortune to have this lovely piece of property and hope you find your visit both comfortable and relaxing and all you hope for.

Guestbook comments from the manager


We certainly enjoyed Antigua and moreover your residence. The Villa is extraordinary and the view breathtaking.

I want to thank you for your hospitality and sharing the place.

I will take time later to write a note.

Still amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to this wonderful villa. Sunrise and coffee on the deck starts each day, and sunset and stars is the way to end it. Never tire of the view of the sea, and the cool breeze. Incredible snorkeling starts within a few feet of the beach, and the sand is beautiful.

Owners are always great to work with, as is local person Christiane.

Thank you, Paul and Sheila, for sharing this treasure - another memorable visit.

Chris and Tami

The property did not disappoint in any way. I had tears in my eyes when I walked through the main living area and the focal point was the Atlantic. The home and view were exactly as pictured on VRBO. The gardens with all of the birds were a delight. Not only did we take advantage of the local area, we rented a car and took a few day trips to explore. The people of Antigua are friendly and helpful. We truly enjoyed Dwight, the Gardner. He made us feel at home. The home had everything we needed for our week vacation. Paul is very easy to communicate with and eager to make sure you have everything you need. I highly recommend this home to anyone that would like an island experience, away from the hub. Renting a car is needed if you are going to explore the island. We loved Mama's Pasta for lunch.

We highly recommend this property- we found everything on site clean and fresh and thoughtfully left for us complete with games and movies for a great family retreat. We felt very at home. We were warmly greeted and the on site caretaker available . The beach is lovely and the views breathtaking. This was our first time using Home Away and this villa sets a very high bar! This is paradise in paradise and we hope to return!

Lovely views! Quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our quite peace of paradise. Gardens around the place were beautiful. They do a great job at maintaining them. Catherine met us at the house and went over every thing with us and wished us well on our way out. We're so helpful with tours and info around the island while we were there. The grill on the porch with a great view of long bay all the way to the airport with the lights at night. Would recommend to anyone wanting their own piece of paradise! Paul is great to work with so kind.

Perfect spot for a perfect relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I just returned from a lovely vacation at Cliffside. The driving directions given were gratefully used, and we found the house with no problem. The view is fantastic, and the house itself was perfect for us. Nicely decorated, it was stocked with cooking utensils, and plenty of towels and beach towels, even two snorkels and masks and a few beach chairs. The house is part of a compound of a few homes, but we didn't hear/see others at all, other than Dwight the gardener who was very nice. Christiane, who met us at the house, was wonderful, and gave us lots of restaurant recommendations. If you don't want to drive far, Long Bay is down the hill from the house, and has chairs and umbrellas available for rent. A must try is Mama Pastas with Cecil's rum punches. We would heartily recommend this spot to those who want to laze with a drink in hand, or those who, like us , have a car and are willing to drive the island, exploring the gorgeous beaches. All in all a lovely vacation, and one we hope to repeat next year!

We had a great time at Cliffside Villa. The Villa itself is beautifully situated overlooking perhaps the best view in the Caribbean. The gardens are wonderfully landscaped and tended and teeming with hummingbirds and other colourful wildlife. The villa itself is well equipped and spacious. It has everything you could possibly need. The cooking knives were even freshly sharpened! Long Bay beach is a 5 minute walk down the hill with great snorkelling just off the beach. Cliffside really is a relaxing paradise and we spent a marvellous 2 weeks, swimming, touring the fantastic Island, sunbathing, reading and just sitting on the huge deck watching the sea and the sky. The owners are courteous and responsive and Christiane who looks after the Villa was welcoming and helpful. We've been to Antigua three times now and our visit to Paul and Sheilas was the best by far. Dwight was a great guy as well. Highly recommended, it couldn't have been better.
