With a superb terrace, a huge (800 square foot) semi-infinity pool and magnificent views that include the two best beaches on Montserrat, the Caribbean Sea, Garibaldi Hill, the Belham River Valley, and all 3000 plus feet of Mount Soufriere itself - this lovely villa has one of the best settings on Montserrat..
Wonderful sunsets over the sea from the house and terrace, you can often see the famous 'green flash' as the sun goes down.
The villa is in a private setting and is surrounded by its own gardens, full of flowering trees and shrubs, humming birds, coconut palms, orange, lime and banana trees, a glorious mature almond tree, masses of bougainvillea, hibiscus and oleander, plus many others - this beautiful villa was built in the nineties to a colonial style and is set high amongst the many wooded, hillside acres of the most exclusive development on Montserrat. This is Caribbean style and quality at its finest. Beautiful high ceilings, double opening doors from each bedroom on to the covered verandas that run right around the house, lots of light and living space, cooled by the trade breezes with glorious views from every room. There are two main bedrooms, each with a well-fitted bathroom, both with showers and one with a Jacuzzi bath. One has twin beds the other a king-size double. There is also a gallery room which can be used as a third, children’s bedroom by prior arrangement - the house is perfect for one or two couples wanting maximum space, comfort and privacy. (For larger parties we can arrange consolidation with other villas on this very special estate).
New additions for 2014 include an exercise bike, and a great, reflector telescope. Clear air and almost zero light pollution make for some of the best night sky viewing you will find anywhere.
The kitchen has just been re-fitted with locally crafted red-cedar solid timber, a new cooker and dishwasher, with a sizable inventory of equipment including a vast, American style fridge/freezer with built in ice dispenser, plus a coffee maker, breadmaker, microwave, slow cooker and a mixer.
The magnificent and very sizeable terrace has a high degree of privacy for that all-over suntan, and great views in every direction. The fully tiled 40 foot swimming pool has a diving board, steps at both ends, built in underwater lighting, and a full safety ledge around the whole pool. There is a separate garage, a wash and drying room, and ample car parking.
The rental package includes private transport to and from the airport or ferry terminal, and the services of both a maid and a gardener for one day in each week. Pre-stocking of the bar and fridge can be arranged at client cost, as can extra days of maid service. A 4wd drive hire car can also be made available at a nominal cost.
Close by are a number of excellent restaurants, including the highly regarded and beautifully sited Olveston House (belonging to Sir George and Lady Martin), and Watermelon Cottage, run by the truly charming Trevor in his own wonderfully quirky house.
The island itself is very much the West Indies as it was 50 years ago, the Caribbean at its best. Mountainous, green, very beautiful, the friendliest people you will find on the planet, almost completely crime-free, and absolutely full of true West Indian quirkiness and character. There are no resort hotels or cruise ship terminals, thus zero mass tourism. Access is via Antigua, St Kitts or St Martin by air (10 minutes from Antigua) or by ferry. There are daily flights from UK and US to Antigua. Montserrat is a British Overseas Territory and has a resident British Governor. No visas are required in advance of arrival for US, Canadian or EU passport holders. Everyone speaks English, and there is a great mixture of resident Montserrations plus expat British, American and Canadian property owners and residents.

Montserrat is very mountainous and beautiful, very green and wooded with special flora and fauna and spectacular scenery. Nature at it's very best. There are lots of mountain and jungle walks and excellent guides are available. The National Trust h/q and botanical gardens are only about a mile away.
The beaches are often deserted.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I am a semi-retired British yachtsman and balloon and airship commercial pilot. Very widely travelled, I settled on Montserrat as being one of the loveliest and friendliest places I have ever been fortunate enough to visit.
Why the Owner Chose Saint Peter Parish, Montserrat:
In a really superb location, with wonderful sea and mountain views, great sunsets, privacy and peace. I find it hard to imagine a better property or location in which to simply relax and enjoy. To sit by the pool, on the terrace in the late afternoon and watch the sun setting over the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by nature at its very best, and with a cold drink to hand - these are the magic moments in life. After some years of full-time ocean cruising I thought long and hard about where to put down some roots, the Caribbean held the greatest appeal and Montserrat ticked all the boxes. When I found Lime Tree House I was content, it was perfect for my needs. I'm glad to say that my guests all find the same.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The views, the pool, the terrace and verandas, the peace and privacy, the night skies, a truly delightful place to be. I've recently installed a large reflector telescope to take advantage of those wonderful night skies, this is available to be used by guests. Also just added are a barbecue, and an exercise bike.
