Ocean Front Villa In Tranquil Part Of Antigua Close To Top Tourist Activities
The White House is a large, spectacular, luxury, recently-completed, architect-designed, waterfront villa in one of the most tranquil areas of Antigua. It sits on a peninsula in the Northeast of the island close to Long Bay, which has a beautiful white-sand beach protected by coral reefs with excellent snorkelling. The small village of Willikies is nearby. This area benefits from the Northeast Trade winds which keep the mosquitoes away and provide a cooling breeze.
The entrance to The White House is through a remote controlled gate with the drive leading to the front door and an integral garage which keeps the car cool in even the hottest weather. Terraces have been built on all sides of the villa so that sun or shade is always available. The tropical gardens extend to the sea where the property benefits from its own private dock, giving access to and from the water and a base for any keen fishermen,sailors or water-sports enthusiasts.
The dining room opens to the sea on two sides and links directly to the large airy living room with large opening glass doors at each end. In front of both is a beautiful terrace overlooking one of the most important protected marine life areas in Antigua and providing magnificent views of sunsets over the distant mountains. Outside tables and chairs allow meals to be taken here if preferred. A fan-shaped, infinity-edged swimming pool some forty feet across, lies below and in front of this terrace with its own extensive suntrap terrace, changing room/bathroom and pool shower.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a large GE Profile fridge freezer, granite work surfaces, dishwasher, oven, microwave and a gas hob. The utility has a large washing machine and a separate tumble dryer. The dining and living rooms, kitchen and utility all have ceiling fans.
Each of the three double bedrooms has individual air-conditioning and ceiling fan, its own sumptuously fitted bathroom and its own private terrace with magnificent sea views and cooling sea breezes. One bedroom has a super king size bed and two have twin single beds. All have large built in wardrobes with ample shelf and hanging space.
The study at the end of the living room terrace provides extensive desk space for those who may need it. Internet is available throughout the whole property, by both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections but you need to bring your own laptops, ipads etc. A local mobile telephone with a pay as you go SIM card is supplied; credit can be added at many local shops and service stations. Household service is provided on Tuesday and Thursday morning each week.
All rooms and terraces have travertine-stone floors imported from Europe, red-cedar doors and shutters with mosquito screens.
Turtles, pelicans, stingrays and flying fish can be seen from the house with frigate birds, egrets and even ospreys soaring overhead. Humming birds are frequent visitors to the tropical gardens, with palms and bourgainvilleas, which extend on all sides.
Two of the most important quality hotels on Antigua are at Long Bay and some of the top tourist attractions are in this part of the island, including Paddles, Stingray City, Betty's Hope Sugar Mill, Devil's Bridge and Great Bird island. The White House is some 20 minutes by car from Nelson's Dockyard, English Harbour, Falmouth Harbour, the airport and the capital city of St John's. Antigua is reputed to have 364 beaches, many of them world renown, so you can choose a different one every day if you wish to leave the quiet peace of The White House and its facilities.

Wonderful family vacation in a beautiful home!
The White House is an absolutely beautiful and unique Caribbean Villa. The design and construction of the house is first rate assuring a most comfortable and enjoyable stay. We all (3adults, 2children) enjoyed our stay in this luxurious house and the infinity pool received extensive use.
The setting is private and with beautiful views over the water. Breakfast on the deck is a special treat. The housekeeper did a superb job and was extremely helpful with local information and directions. Beaches and restaurants are a short drive and easy to find. This house is truly a find and I would love to be back there right now. Tony White is very responsive and easy to deal with thereby making the business part of the vacation a simple matter. Definitely a five star listing!
An Ideal Place to Relax
My husband and I could not have asked for a more relaxing and tranquil locale than the White house for our first visit to Antigua. The location of the property is private and serene, situated a top of a peninsula with magnificent unobstructed views. The orientation of the home allows for gentle breezes to flow through the house, keeping the temperature pleasant. Whenever you feel the need to be active, you can take a refreshing dip in the beautiful infinity pool, take in some sun bathing, or explore the island. This property is terrific for a romantic getaway for two or for several couples, as it offers both ample private and common space. The home was immaculate upon arrival and was maintained in that condition throughout our stay by the wonderful Lisa, whose warm and helpful countenance ensured that our experience was comfortable and trouble-free. Communication with Tony, the owner of the property, was excellent. We thank you for making your beautiful home available to us and hope we can visit again in the future.
Immaculately appointed and maintained 4 bed villa
The house was as described as advertised and had beautiful views to all aspects, especially the main terrace and we breakfasted looking over the Atlantic ocean every morning. The property is ideal for people who value their privacy and just want to get away from it all. A car is essential, if you want to explore the island, having said that Antigua is small enough to be within 45 minutes to an hour drive to anywhere on the island from the house. The property is equipped to the highest standard and there is no need to dine out in the evening if you so wish as the kitchen has every appliance that one would need.
The house was kept scrupulously clean by Lisa the housekeeper who was friendly and always smiling and nothing was too much trouble. Tony , the owner was very helpful with providing us with information prior to us travelling to Antigua, he also gave us advice on car hire as well as organising us with a taxi to meet us at the airport.
We would recommend this property to friends or relatives, but possibly with one reservation which would be that the house may not suit a family with small children as there are many stone steps to navigate, both up to the bedrooms and down to the pool, also the lack of a T.V. may present a problem keeping them entertained in the evenings.
Villa situata su una penisola lontano da tutto e da tutti.
Colpisce soprattutto il silenzio che vi regna. Locali molto grandi e luminosi. Una particolarità: c'è sempre vento che tiene lontani gli insetti, ma si sente solo nella parte alta, il resto della casa è riparato. Piscina molto grande. il tutto molto ben tenuto.
Tutto ciò, grazie alla grande Liza. Sempre disponibile e gentile.
Un grazie, oltre che al proprietario e a Liza, anche a Mr Baltimore il taxista. Organizzazione perfetta. Vacanza perfetta.
Dear Norma and Paolo,
Thank you for your kind review which is so helpful to us and to others who may benefit from your experience of the villa and its facilities. We have taken the liberty of providing an English translation below for those who do not speak Italian. We hope to see you again at some time in the future.
Tony and Liz
Villa situated on a peninsula far from everything and everyone. Above all you notice the silence around you. The property is very big and light. In particular there is always a breeze that keeps the insects away, but which you notice only at the top of the property, the rest of the house is sheltered. The swimming pool is very big and everything is well cared for.
All thanks to dear Liza (the housekeeper). Always available and kind.
Thanks, not only to the owners, and to Liza, but also to Mr Baltimore the taxi driver. Perfect organisation. Perfect holiday.’
Antigua is a small island, so you are within about 20 minutes of most activities, including Nelson's Dockyard and many historical sites, world famous beaches, fishing, sailing,etc.etc
