About Tina Westwood

Tina arrived in 1985 as crew aboard a Motor Yacht. She fell in love with the island and its people. She opened two very successful bar/restaurants and is now self-employed as a Yacht Agent and Concierge.

Tina and her daughter live in a cottage on the property, which is totally separate from the Villa and accessed by private path.

Tina Westwood purchased this villa in 1998

Why Tina Westwood chose Falmouth

The Villa is on a tranquil and breezy peninsula, yet it is only 10-15 minutes drive from all major attractions of the area.

What makes this villa unique

This is a very quiet area, and a calm and relaxing place to unwind, whether you are with friends or family.

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.

A perfect holiday home in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

Just as you wonder how further you have to go down a pot holed lane the view of English Harbour, Falmouth and blue sky/ sea opens up, and there is the beautiful Yellow House. Sea breezes around you, views of luxury yachts, Frigate birds on the wing- perfect! The house is in excellent order, Tina has clearly continuously invested in updating and improving the home. The bathrooms were very new and in a very tasteful marine shabby chic look. Beds were comfy, with air conditioning for hot nights. Plenty of spaces to lounge, relax, read and chat. Dining on the terrace was a delight, from breakfast through to candlelight dinners. Walking opportunities from the house are limited, you do need a hire car to negotiate that track and get around. Tina is an excellent host who takes care of any special requests and makes your visit carefree. Recommended!

Great House - Great View - Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Yellow House is such a nice place to stay! We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute of our visit. The house is beautiful - the kitchen has everything you need to prepare gourmet meals - the bathrooms are new and absolutely beautiful. Everything is clean, fresh, and well appointed.

The view of the harbor from the back yard is enchanting. My husband and I enjoyed watching the big yachts go in and out - many of them docked in the harbor - we enjoyed reading the names of the boats and then looking them up on the internet. There are some pretty fabulous boats in that harbor! The outside area in the back of the home has so many places to relax and take in the view - you can sit somewhere else almost every night - at the dining table, on the sofa underneath the covered patio, outside the master bedroom on the small porch, or by the pool. So fun. We enjoyed using the gas grill to prepare some great meals - and marveled at the star shows in the sky.

The air conditioners in the bedrooms keep you cool at night - and during the day - the windows allow lots of breeze to filter through the house.

Much care has been taken to make sure that guests of the Yellow House feel like they are welcome and pampered. We loved our visit to this home! Thanks Tina and Tony!

beautifully & tastefully presented, very spacious and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully presented property, tastefully decorated with stunning views. Wonderful 180 degree view of Falmouth bay and the surrounding hills. With the addition of further views out east to the Caribbean sea. The photos don’t do it justice, feels very spacious and every home comfort you could imagine. The area is slightly off the beaten track which makes it very quiet and peaceful whilst still only being 10 minutes to English harbour and the lovely pigeon beach. We slept in the lovely master suite which was a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back. Overall fantastic experience and lovely memories. Thank you Tina

Amazing Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Yellow House this year again and loved it as much as the previous year. Everything was perfect, the kitchen so well equipped, the living room comfortable, airy and breezy, the rooms and bathrooms spotless and perfect for our family of 2 adults and 4 children, the pool and garden, we love the Yellow House and look forward to coming back to it another time!

Tina is always improving the house, so it is immaculate and beautifully decorated, and Tony the housekeeper does the best bed ever while everything is absolutely spotless.

If you need advice, bookings and tips, Tina will be delighted to help with a smile. Thanks again and see you soon!
