About the property

Sleeps 12 adults in beds + 2 Cots . 7 Bedroom/5 Bathrooms. Plus 2 Sofa beds.

The Boat House, Antigua, is a substantial seven bedroom property comfortably accommodating families up to 12 adults plus 2 infants. Situated directly on the ocean with breath taking views in stunning Mamora Bay, this beautiful property offers the ultimate value luxury holiday. The house is private, not overlooked and is set down an unmade road which has its own community so you are never far away from a neighbour, but can enjoy your privacy. In the words of one guest "The road to the house is a little rickety but this adds to the authenticity of the island". The house is aimed at FAMILIES. If you are a group proposing to come for a sailing week/carnival please enquire first.

The property benefits from a generous HEATED pool and pool deck, private spit, two small private beaches, balconies, stunning views, a secluded setting, luxurious furnishings and security shutters. Air conditioning is not even considered here as this house beautifully captures the cooling sea breeze. This constant breeze also means this spot is virtually mosquito free! Rarely does this wind drop except in the months July and August while the island is at its hottest.

The house is close to English Harbour, Falmouth Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard with all the shops and restaurants on offer, yet far enough away (15 minutes) to avoid all the noise associated with the bustle and night life of these areas. The house is set down a 1.2 mile unmade road which requires a 4x4 vehicle. There are many houses nearby but the house remains secluded and definitely not overlooked. A 4x4 is a requirement of booking this property, you cannot rely on taxis to take you to and from the property, although some will.

Set over three floors the accommodation is very generous and flexible and is easily suited to any group. The Upper two floors comprise four large double bedrooms (one with additional single bed, one with a cot), one single bedroom (with additional cot bed), four en-suites and two separate WCs. There is a complete kitchen on each floor with large living and dining areas, and generous outside decks. The lower ground sea level apartment comprises one en-suite double bedroom, kitchen and living room with a single bed, and is ideal for independent group members or staff. PLEASE REFER TO THE BEDROOM PLANS FOR BED CONFIGURATIONS..

This Caribbean beach front house in its stunning, secluded position is accessed via a non-made up road, which provides exceptional privacy and security. Sitting in an acre of land the house has its own landscaped gardens with beautiful palm trees, and is fully equipped with electric shutters. Mobile phone and 4G Wi-Fi signals are reasonable here and an impressive 37,000 gallon water catchment tank supplies the house its water. Solar panels power the hot water and augment the government electricity supply, which occasionally fails so the house has its own generator.

The house faces the famous world class resort, St James' Club, which is directly across the bay.

This holiday location truly is second to none, hence attracting those with discerning taste and the highest of expectations, we guess that's why our closest Neighbours include Eric Clapton and Timothy Dalton! The house also recently appeared on the UK's X factor!

For keen Sailors with access to a boat there is a concreted driveway all the way down to the spit for easy access to the waterfront. The house has its own boat house for storing a sail boat or tender.

If you are a non family party/yacht crew please contact us first. Our standard deposit rates may not apply. The Boathouse is not a business location and the Wifi is limited to 40GB per stay on a prepaid basis. Further GB can be purchased by arrangement prior to travel.

About C Thomas

I have family living in Antigua and know the island well. I am a British entrepreneur and built the house from a shell with a team of 16 locals over 6 months!

A lot of love has gone into the Boathouse! We have kids ourselves and it is a great place for youngsters.

Making family memories at a an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at The Boat House. There were 4 generations of us on vacation and Antigua did not disappoint. The house is clean and spacious and there was plenty of room to move around considering how many we were. The beds were very comfortable and there was an overabundance of linens to go around. The view from the house is amazing. Everyone wakes up to a gorgeous view of the bay. St. James club is just across the bay and on New Years Eve we were surprised with an amazing firework display that could not have been more perfect. Aside from a glitch with the wifi, everyone had a great time. The arrangements were easy to make from the get go. From Lizzie and Crispin's communication to Wendy helping us out on the property. It couldn't have been more seamless. Thanks again for a wonderful stay and we would love to make it happen again. :)

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Boat House for two weeks in January. We were a group of 8 adults and one child and we were not disappointed! The house was large enough that we had enough space to be on our own if we wanted it, but could also congregate for family meals, etc. It was also a great find travelling with a young child, as it was well stocked with everything we might need including car seat, feeding chair, toys and much more!

Not only is the house itself beautiful but it is situated on a beautiful part of the island and the ocean views are amazing! Be sure to get out and explore many of the amazing Antiguan beaches during your stay. The road to get to the house is quite rough but once you’ve driven it a couple times it is no big deal.

All in all we had a wonderful vacation!

So relaxing I've only just written the review!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and stayed at The Boathouse, right on the shore of Mamora Bay for a week with friends. What a fantastic location! The breeze takes the edge off the heat, making temperatures inside or outside the house really comfortable. The worst of the mosquitoes are kept away, too; a great bonus! And right across the Bay is the St James Club, it's lovely beach is only a short drive away. The house is really spacious and very comfortable; there's plenty of room for larger parties or families holidaying with each other to have their own living space (even with their own bathroom and kitchen if it's needed!) but there are great, well-furnished areas inside and outside where you can all get together. The area around the good-sized swimming pool is a super place for a 'sundowner' cocktail before dinner! Maybe two...... The house is reached by a private road, so you really do have your own piece of Caribbean paradise while you're 'in residence'! English Harbour and surrounding area with a great selection of restaurants and lots of beautiful beaches are easily reached by car and all around us we found the whole atmosphere really relaxed and the people very friendly. An absolutely 'fully recommended' large house in a super part of a great island!

Peaceful in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days over the 2014 Christmas holiday at the Boat House and absolutely loved it! The property sits in an excellent position on the water with the most pleasant ocean breezes every day. It was so nice have the multiple levels to spread out on, we never felt on top of each other or crowded. Although the house is multiple levels, I would also mention that people with disabilities can also enjoy it, as each level has at least a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen, and can be accessed through a drive on each level (2 stairs, at most, to worry about). The house is very comfortable and spacious, has everything you need to enjoy your time away, and having a private (large!) pool was so great, as well as the warm ocean right below. We enjoyed every morning on the upstairs deck, having a coffee in the sunshine, and every evening on the pool deck, under the stars. The property has no neighbors close by and has been very tastefully decorated. The owners were so helpful in making the booking, as well as helping advise on any arrangements we needed during our stay. We didn't have any questions unanswered and the only thing we really had to figure out was which of the 300+ beaches we wanted to visit on the island! This was our first visit to Antigua - the food, the people, the weather, the beaches and ocean, everything was so enjoyable. We look forward to visiting again soon and wouldn't hesitate to book the Boat House, or to recommend it to everyone we know!

Outstanding Property in fantastic locataion - we could not ask for any more

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family (2 adults and 2 kids) and wife's parents (2 adults) and a couple of friends with their 2 kids. Thats 10 people in all. We had a great time. The property as far as we can tell is brand new, spotless and huge. We rent holiday properties all the time and this was the cleanest and most organized we have ever been in with every possible thing you might need. Each room was very spacious. Kitchen massive and a table for all ten of us to sit together and eat altogether. The pool was amazing. What you really don't appreciate from the website is the views. They are world class - you are opposite the St. James club with you very own beach and swimming pool!!!!. You can swim off of two beaches directly alongside the property and one of them is sheltered by the dock which made it ideal for the kids. Shallow too. I really cannot stress what a great place this is. We are going back again - this place was exactly what it said it was.

2 weeks of bliss

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were met at the airport and everything was explained to us regarding how the house worked and given info about the locality, restaurants, food shopping and attractions for our stay. We were 4 adults and 5 children. The bedrooms and facilities were extremely clean and tidy and well spaced out so that our 2 families could have as much time together but still have time and space to themselves. The beach and views are wonderful and the location is very peaceful and secluded, but as you are in a small bay and St James' resort is just across the way (1km) you really feel part of the small community. The house is great...

The road to the house is a little rickety but this adds to the authenticity of the island and just a few minutes away from English Harbour and the many shops and restaurants that this beautiful area has to offer. We explored the island over our 2 week stay and although lunching for hours in great restaurants and watching the children playing happily on the beaches beside, our favourite was buying fresh bread at Mauro's and having a picnic at Half Moon Bay which is about a 20 minute drive up the coast. This beach was amazing and we'll worth exploring. (The house has a big cool box which we filled with ice and took to the beach with us)

The 2 weeks we stayed at the Boat House with our children will be remembered for many years to come. A great time had by all...
