Overview

About the property

Tranquil And Breezy 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Villa, Minutes Walk To Beach

The Yellow House has been designed to maximize the tropical climate and make the most of its 2,900 square feet. The bright, open Living Area features a vaulted roof, with ceiling fans in every room and a large, well-equipped Kitchen ( newly decorated ) , including 5-burner stove.

A Nespresso coffee machine & frother are there , so bring your Nespresso capsules to enjoy your morning coffee !

A huge, tiered Veranda is home to an alfresco lounging and dining area, which seats 8-10...perfect for enjoying the cooling island trade winds. A charcoal barbeque is available for your use.

The Villa stands in a large, lush garden, enclosed with a privacy fence and fitted with an alarm system. A size-able deck with 24ft x 12ft pool (unfenced) has sun loungers, chairs, an outdoor shower and is just steps away from the House. From the Veranda and the Pool Area, you have breathtaking and uninterrupted views of the entrance and entirety of Falmouth Harbour, including Pigeon Beach and the local Marinas. This is the perfect position to view the comings and goings of the countless Super Yachts that call Antigua their seasonal base.

The Master Bedroom has a King-sized bed with en suite bathroom, including a roll-top tub and separate shower, with his and hers washbasins.

The Second Bedroom with a sea view has an American Queen-sized bed and a Single bed.

The Third Bedroom has two Antique Double beds.

All beds have mosquito nets, all windows have screens, and the Master Bedroom has its own Private Terrace, sheltered from the sun and overlooking the Pool.

The interior decor of oatmeal and white, accented by Caribbean blue perfectly complements the home's combination of contemporary and antique furniture. The Living Room, whose windows capture the bright sunshine has a large, flat-screen TV, accompanied by Cable TV channels. A Bose docking station is available to use with iPhone 5 & iPod . WIFI internet access is included and there is an automatic backup generator in case of a power cut.

There is a laundry room with washing machine and antique 'dolly' drying rack, from which your clothes will dry in the Caribbean breeze!

A maid will come weekly, which is included in the price. If you require more days or a local Cook to make your stay extra-special, this can be arranged.

The 3 bedrooms have recently had the latest Mitsibishi air con units installed .

There is also a separate one-bedroom cottage which may be rented along with the Villa, giving an option for an extra 3-4 people to sleep. (See VRBO #558866).

We're coming back and staying longer next year

  • 5 of 5

Yellow house is clean, beautiful, and spacious. My family and I rented the villa for eight days, and enjoyed our stay. Tina and Tony are very helpful from beginning to end. The house was well stocked with linens, clean white towels, beach towels, beach toys for kids.

The kitchen had all the pots and utensils you would ever need. They even had dishes and utensils for children ( my kids are five and three years old, so it was nice to have these.

The view from this villa is amazing. We spent most of our time on the back porch enjoying the view and the island breeze. My kids loved the pool and the lush garden with the beautiful flamboyant tree.

I have visited Antigua many times, and thanks to the yellow house this was our best trip.

We will definitely be back next year for a loner stay.

Fantastic Views, Great Villa with all you need

  • 4 of 5

We spent 12 days at Yellow House in late July and had a wonderful time. The villa owner Tina could not have been more helpful. A car is needed and she booked us a great SUV which met us at the airport and the hire manager Rasheed even escorted us to the villa - about 25 minutes drive from the airport.

Yellow house is located at the end of a peninsula with fantastic views over Falmouth Harbour which can be enjoyed from the plentiful pool loungers. The Villa is spacious and very well equipped. Tony the house keeper was friendly and it was great to come back from a day out and find the place regularly cleaned with new towels and bed linen (Thanks again Tony).

We spent some days out exploring the beautiful island and recommend the Fig Tree Drive through the rain forest on way to the beaches around Jolly Habour. The capital St Johns is worth a visit and take in Lunch at Hemmingways overlooking the hustle and bustle of the main street was great (go for the local special - it will not disappoint and great service). A morning at Stingray City is something we will never forget, even our 3 year old had his photo with the Giant Fish. Closer to Yellow House try a relaxing day at Pigeon Beech, it is great for all, soft sand and calm sea for young children and also some snorkeling for older ones. Make sure you make the visit to Nelson's Dockyard and if you fancy a treat take a great lunch at Boom Restaurant and then while away the afternoon with a cocktail or two next to their pool.

We had a great time at Yellow House and would definitely recommend it to families who want a well equipped and relaxing location. Thanks again Tina, we may well come back in the future.

Amazing property - beautiful location, well equipped, very helpful owner and staff. Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a fantastic two week stay at Yellow House - what an incredible place! The location and views over English Harbour are outstanding, the sea breezes and the open layout of the house meant it was always comfortable even in mid-summer. We've stayed in many villas over the years, and I can honestly say that none have been as well or thoughtfully equipped as Yellow House. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Thank you Tina and Tony for making our first trip to Antigua a memorable one - it won't be the last!

Great property - generously equipped - wonderful views - couldn't fault

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful fortnight stay at Yellow House - We've stayed in many villa properties and have never had one as thoughtfully or generously equipped - the living areas are spacious and balmy breezes flow through the property from the large lounge through to the splendid master bedroom. The whole property is spotlessly clean, decorations abound and the rooms feel most welcoming.

We spent many happy afternoons watching the super yachts coming and going in Falmouth harbour. The villa is a short drive into the English Harbour area replete with many excellent restaurants and cafes. We were spoilt for choice in the evenings - but catering at the house is also an easy option with a gas barbecue available which cooks chicken, steak and fish to perfection.

Thanks to Tina and Tony for looking after us during our stay. We would recommend the villa to our friends without hesitation and would certainly return to Antigua and stay there again.

Just returned home after two weeks at the Yellow House. Nothing could make this place better except a longer stay! I could write a lot of positive comments, but trust me, absolutely everything about the Yellow House is wonderful. Go and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Tina. You and your staff are the best!!
