About Lou Tubbs

Family Tubbs live in Antigua where Jonny does building/project management work, and Lou markets and runs The Carib House. Lou originally from Oz, and Jonny from the UK met in Antigua in 1995, and are now permanent citizens of this lovely place we call home. Our two boys now 17 and 18 come back to Antigua with friends to enjoy all the fun activities they cant do while at school in the UK

Lou Tubbs purchased this villa in 1996

Why Lou Tubbs chose Saint Paul

We built this property completing in 2002, initially as a family home, moving out for rentals, and moved to our own home when the kids started owning animals and needing their own space. We maintain the Carib House with a constant refurbishment program in place.

What makes this villa unique

The Carib house is an oasis on the southern end of the island - one minute you can be in the bustle of English and Falmouth Harbours, the next swinging in your hammock overlooking the beautiful sea views and enjoying the amazing space with your family and or friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

2 families, 4 adults, 7 children ages 13-32

The house was perfect for the 11 of us. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. We had Jonty come in for a dinner and New Years brunch - wonderful food! Lou our hostess was a great help checking in on us every day. We will strongly recommend the Carib House to everyone back at home

Because the owners go out of their way to make your vacation the best possible. We were staying with our 1.5 yr old grandson and he got an upper respiratory infection. We called Lou and she came and got my daughter and her son, drove them to a doctor and then drove them around to get a prescription. She really was the absolute best to take her time to help us out. The layout is the best for larger groups. Love all the outdoor living areas. This is a great vacation rental and in addition you'll get personal help with things that come up on a trip!

March 2015 stay

  • 5 of 5

The stay at the famous Caribe house was a pleasant time for my family and friends. The Tubbs we're the best hosts a traveler could have. The house was everything it was represented to be. There was even cold beer waiting for us upon arrival. We especially loved lunch at Catherines. We hope to return another time to visit with our new friends.

Comfortable, commodious and charming

  • 4 of 5

We were happy from the first moment we moved in! A family of ten, three generations, all fit comfortably into the five bedrooms. The beds had excellent mattresses; in fact throughout the whole house and veranda there was just the right kind of furniture. An excellent kitchen completed our satisfaction. Everyone loved the pool and the gazebo. This was altogether an admirable place to stay.

Fabulous island stay

  • 5 of 5

The Carib House is an amazing place for a vacation in Antigua. The house is fabulous and the views are unbelievable. Our group of 8 didn't even need to use the A/C as the tradewinds kept the location cool. Lou and Jonny were helpful in all aspects including all of their recommendations for things to do on the island. We especially loved dining at Jackie O's. The location of the house is great--close to beaches and swimming areas. If you're considering a vacation in Antigua, the Carib House is THE place to stay on the island!

In the immediate area of The Carib House is world famous Rendezvous Beach. For the active, it is a mere 25 minute hike, or you can hire a boat to take you there. A rugged 4WD is also an alternative. Spring Hill Riding Stables, also in the vicinity, allows you yet again another form of transport. The Carib House is located in Turtle Bay, a secluded area featuring mainly owner occupied houses, away from the noise of nearby English and Falmouth Harbour villages, but close enough to partake in the action.
