About the Property

3 bedroom, 3 baths, sleeps 6

Located in Galleon Beach Club Resort on beautiful Freeman's Bay, Island Pearl villa is open concept living at its best. The living room, dining room and kitchen open to the veranda and the stunning ocean views. There are two spacious bedrooms and baths on the main floor and a one bedroom studio with kitchen and small deck on the lower level. This can be used as a self-contained unit or a third bedroom. The bedrooms have air conditioning plus there are ceiling fans throughout the villa to enhance the magnificent ocean breezes. The kitchen opens to a swimming pool with loungers, and there is a large veranda with sitting and dining areas (plus a hammock for napping), overlooking Freeman's Bay. (When the doors are closed however, there are screens and louvers for maximum breezes while keeping out annoying mosquitoes and other unwanted insects.)
We provide free Wi-Fi, Cable TV, and DVD Player, and also have a cell phone for local calls.
It is just a short stroll down hill to the beach. However, if you prefer longer walks, the location of this villa is perfect to take advantage of some excellent hikes. Three separate trails lead up from Galleon Beach Club Resort to Shirley Heights, the most photographed spot on the island.

The resort is located within the National Park with Nelson's Dockyard a five minute taxi ride away. History Buffs will have hours of fun researching the restored buildings and artifacts in the museum.
For those who wish to discover other parts of Antigua, a rental car is advised, and we can help arrange that for you.
It is incredibly peaceful year round, but within minutes has access to the bustling southern village of English Harbour which is home to the Antigua Charter Yacht Show, the Antigua Superyacht Challenge, the RORC Caribbean 600, Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta and Antigua Sailing Week.
Of course, Antigua is known for its 365 beaches, one for each day of the year. Freeman's Bay is an excellent beach for swimming, and snorkeling. There are several dive shops in English Harbour, and excellent dive sites just minutes from the beach. Most of the local divers will pick you up on the jetty at Galleon Beach.
Included in the villa is 5-day per week housekeeping service provided by our wonderful Esther who has worked at the villa since 2000. All bed linens, beach towels and basic kitchen requirements are included. A Weber gas grill is on the veranda for outdoor cooking. In the nearby villages of English Harbour and Falmouth, you will find local groceries, plus an excellent choice of restaurants. Inside the Dockyard, there are also shops and local ladies selling T-shirts, jewelry and miscellaneous items.
When booking with us, we really want to ensure that you have a wonderful stay. When you email us, be sure to let us know of any specific requirements so that we can ensure the villa is exactly as you would like it upon arrival.
Our payment policy is a deposit of 2-nights rental upon booking, and we require final payment 5 weeks prior to arrival. For last minute bookings within the five week window, full payment is required upon booking. We offer a 10% discount on bookings of 2 weeks or more.
A minimum stay of 5 nights is required to book the villa. All payments are non-refundable, so travel insurance is highly recommended.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I was born and raised in Indiana, and currently live in Fort Wayne. We built our home on the Island of Antigua in the year 2000 after having vacationed in Antigua for 25 years. We are retired, and enjoy spending as much time with family and friends as possible when we are not at our beautiful villa in Antigua.

Why the Owner Chose English Harbour, Antigua and Barbuda:
We fell in love with Antigua the first time we went, and decided it was the place we wanted to spend time at when we retired. Although the Island is beautiful, it is the people who make it special. They are friendly, helpful and trusting, and we have made many wonderful friends there who we now think of as family.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We have the most magnificent views from our villa. When we wake up in the morning, we can see the ocean from our bed. We have coffee on our veranda, and feed the birds who sometimes eat from our hands. In the afternoon, we usually have a little nap on the hammock before enjoying a 'sundowner' cocktail. What a day!
