About the Property
1 bedroom seaside guest facility. Great natural beauty and serenity.
'Song of the Sea' is a one bedroom guest facility with private entrance. It has one king size bed (or 2 twin size beds), closet, small refrigerator, microwave oven, and coffee maker. The bathroom shower opens to the natural garden. Outside there is a private patio with lounge chairs, table, and a barbecue grill. We are just steps from the sea and the snorkeling is great here. You'll need reef shoes to protect your feet from rocks and coral, as well as mask and snorkel to be able to see all the colorful fish and undersea life! This is a wonderful area for both accomplished swimmers and beginners because the area close to shore is only about 3 feet deep. Should you prefer a sandy beach, the gorgeous Long Bay beach is within 2 miles. There are a couple of restaurants at Long Bay and some local shops in the closest village of Willikies. We do recommend that our guests rent a car during their stay. You will surely want to take advantage of the opportunity to visit the other amazing beaches and scenic areas of Antigua. This is a small island (108 sq. miles) so everything is less than an hour's drive. You can swim with stingrays at Stingray City in Seaton's; take the Antigua Rainforest Canopy Tour; tour 'Betty's Hope', the restoration of a colonial period sugar plantation; take an Eco Tour boat trip; or discover your very own favorite beach from among so many! The possibilities are endless! Start your day with a very substantial breakfast (included) served on the upstairs balcony or on your own patio, then take off on the day's adventure - or choose to stay right here and enjoy the sun, the sea, snorkeling, hiking, experiencing the 'color therapy' of the sea and sky. At night you will be lulled to sleep by gentle waves, a pleasant sea breeze, and the songs of tiny tree frogs! There is nothing more romantic and beautiful than moonlight on the water and we have a front row seat for every moonrise. This is a place of peace and tranquility, perfect for contemplation and renewal of body and soul.

Year Purchased: 1977
About the owner: Being a USAF military family, we grew up living in many different countries and loving the learning experiences we gained from that. We are definitely 'world citizens'. We are both teachers and musicians. Deb is also an artist and hosts 2 local radio programs. Katie loves to cook and is passionate about literacy. We feel this is a very special place and we love sharing it with others! Deb has lived here for more than 20 years, and knows the area very well, so feel free to ask any questions you may have!
Why the Owner Chose St Philip, Antigua and Barbuda:
Our parents visited and vacationed in Antigua several times before they purchased this property and constructed their home. My father was a Civil Engineer and he laid out the house and gardens with great care to preserve the natural beauty of this piece of land which is bordered by sea on the north, east, and south sides. At the time it was purchased it was mostly volcanic rock, but over the years it has been nurtured and shaped into natural gardens with flowering trees, bushes, and plants - flamboyant, frangipani, palms, sea grapes, black willow, cactus, hibiscus, and so many more! This house and environs have a peace and tranquility that is palpable, a place of rest and healing. Years ago my parents ran the bed and breakfast, catering mostly to retired military folks. Now Deb and I have taken over and hope to make everyone who visits feel the love and joy that have gone into our 'Song of the Sea'.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The stunning beauty of the sea, in any weather, in any season is the initial attention-getter here. Standing on the balcony with sea breeze blowing makes you feel like you are sailing or flying! We are far from city noise and cruise ship crowds. We are surrounded by the healing beauty of nature. ...And being able to wear shorts every day of the year isn't bad, either!!
