Shell Villa is tucked away inside Turtle Bay on the south coast of Antigua, near Falmouth Harbour. Enjoy utter privacy and quiet as you sit on its large new ocean-front deck and gaze at the spectacular sunsets over gently smoking Montserrat. Surrounded by stunning vistas of ocean and the gentle slopes surrounding Rendezvous Bay, not a single building mars the view - a very private bit of paradise.
Guests will be met at the airport by Valentino, who will drive you to the Villa, or guide you if you hire a car. Shell Villa has three double bedrooms, all with air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms, a large kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a spacious living/dining area with free high speed internet. It has weekly garden, pool and maid service. The pool and barbeque area and the gardens are planted with gorgeous bougainvillaea, hibiscus, and palms.

Self sustaining and environmentally friendly, Shell Villa has solar panels with a backup generator and also has mains electricity. Voltage is US style 110/60 cycles. Additionally, its large water cistern enables you to enjoy pure rainwater for drinking, showering etc.
The gentle lap of waves on the shore lulls you to sleep, and greets you again as you wake to that wonderful Caribbean morning light. A short stroll along Turtle Bay there is a small pebble beach with sea shells and sea birds aplenty.
While the time you spend at the villa ensures quiet seclusion, there is plenty to do in the nearby environment. Falmouth Harbour and Nelsons Dockyard in English Harbour (a National PArk) are a five-minute drive from the villa. They are visited by some of the most fabulous yachts in the world - catch them with binoculars as they majestically sail across the ocean view from Shell Villa.The constant flow of private yachts, their crew and guests, ensure a lively social scene and a plentiful supply of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars in these harbours.
For those who are athletic, more adventurous and energetic, there are some spectacular walks along the coast to totally deserted beaches, and wonderful views from some of the historic ruins around English Harbour and Shirley Heights. There are also tennis and squash courts nearby.as well as horse-riding, scuba-diving and sailing.
