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).

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!!

  • 5 of 5

When we travel, we want to stay at properties with amazing views, unique features, and ambience. The Yellow House had all of these qualities and more. Tina Westwood is a wonderful host... The house made the trip memorable!

The property is described as having "fabulous views", and it does not disappoint.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 10 incredible days at the Yellow House. It was our first trip to Antigua and we had no frame of reference other than the photos and reviews. Neither the photos nor the reviews do justice to the property or Tina, the property owner. Tina had taken care of every detail for us. She had a taxi driver meet us at the airport. He stopped so we could shop. The rental jeep she had lined up for us was waiting at the house. The house and pool are outstanding. The view over the harbor is amazing. The location at Falmouth Harbor was perfect for us. There are small grocery stores just minutes away and they are well stocked with beer and liquor. We traveled around the island a bit and will choose the Yellow House when we return. We were lucky to be in Antigua in the off season and got to spend some time with Tina (and her pup Minnie) who are delightful. She was always available by the local cell phone (which she provided free of charge as well!) Simply put this is an amazing property and everything runs so smooth it will be one of the most relaxing vacations ever. Thanks again Tina!

perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in villas on a dozen different islands and the Yellow House ranks right up there with the best. It is clean and incredibly well stocked with every gadget and tool that you might need. The patio area and pool are beautiful and the view is gorgeous. Cooling trade winds meant that we were never uncomfortably warm and kept the mozzies & "noseeums" at bay. It was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. We look forward to visiting again with family in the high season. Thank you Tina!

Yellow House for Antigua Race Week

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house with wonderful views of Falmouth Harbour. Great patio and plunge pool from which to watch boats going in and out of the harbor or birds flying overhead. The gas grill was super convenient. We absolutely loved that the house was well stocked with conveniences- towels, linens, kitchenware, hair dryers, etc. It was fun to cook and relax because those things were taken care of! Quick (but a bit bumpy from the road) drive to Falmouth and English Harbor. The only problem we encountered was having to constantly battle the invasive ants. But overall, we'd stay at this property again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: I do hope that you will return to us for race week again .........very unfortunate that we had the issues with sugar ants , I had sprayed prior to your arrival , understand that i wasn't the only one enduring this issue & hear it was due to lack of rain & dryness everywhere . Happy to hear that you found the house to be well equipped with all you required for your stay . I don't think the pool should be called a "plunge " pool , measuring 12ft x 24 ft ! But do agree it is a fantastic place to watch the yachts sail in & the pelicans flying by :)
