About the property

Two Island-Style Bungalows In The Yachting Capital Of The Caribbean

Banana Tree Bungalows is a wonderful choice for independent, self reliant travelers, who wish to enjoy a non-hotel/non-resort type setting.

The two traditional, island style cottages are both 1600 sq ft. with large, 12 ft wrap around verandas, which offer guests a versatile entertainment space, or the chance to simply unwind and experience the cooling effects of Antigua’s renowned trade winds.

Each cottage can comfortably sleep four (in one queen bed and two single beds) with air-conditioning as well as ceiling fans in all rooms. Each kitchen is fully equipped with coffee makers, a Nespresso machine (please bring your own pods), a microwave, propane gas stove and oven and all the utensils for casual dining. Mosquito screens over each window and at the doors protect you from being bitten.

The living rooms and master bedrooms each have 32in. LCD flat screen TV’s with cable television, and the living room features an iPod docking station and a Blu Ray dvd player. There is also wireless Internet in both cottages. The property is monitored by an intruder alarm security system. Each cottage also contains a personal safe.

As your hosts, we get a genuine enjoyment out of meeting our guests, therefore we do most of the initial Meet & Greets on arrival day during the months we are on island. We are also only a phone call or email away, should guests wish to connect with us.

Banana Tree Bungalows is ideally located on the south western tip of Antigua at Falmouth Harbour in the Parish of St. Paul’s. Guests at Banana Tree Bungalows can expect a peaceful environment to relax in. We are located in a residential village in the countryside, which is only a ten minute drive to one of Antigua's most beautiful beaches, as well as only five minutes away from some of its best restaurants and hotspots.

Banana Tree Bungalows is conveniently located near a public bus route. Bus #17 will get you to both harbours as well as Nelson's Dockyard.I n addition, car rental companies are just a few minutes away, and we will gladly recommend a rental car company for you on your request. Your car can be delivered to you at the airport on your arrival or at your cottage ( should you choose our recommended rental company). Parking is conveniently at your doorstep. Whether you choose to rent a car or take a taxi from the airport, we will email you directions to your cottage before your arrival date.

Guests staying at Banana Tree Bungalows can be as active as they wish, as there is much to do within close proximity to the property.

Engage yourself in many of the nearby water sports and activities on offer including snorkeling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing and sailing. Come and enjoy these wonders with Dockyard Divers, who are keen to share their knowledge and experience with you.

Bush walkers and hikers are spoilt for choice as many of Antigua’s best nature trails are close by and running enthusiasts will love the challenge of taking on the island’s hilly terrain.

Great for adventurists is the Antigua Rainforest Canopy Tours, a unique zip line tour through Antigua’s verdant rainforest region, or any of the exhilarating tours and sea excursions organised by Adventure Antigua.

The Spring Hill Riding Club offers many different rides and the stables are close to many beaches which gives riders the chance to swim with their horses in the beautiful Caribbean waters.

Play a round at Cedar Valley Golf Club an 18-hole championship course that caters to all skill levels, conducts lessons and has club rentals and equipment available or enjoy a set of tennis at Temo Sports.

We encourage our guests to visit Antigua's Donkey Sanctuary, a shelter by the Humane Society, for over 150 donkeys. Visitors are allowed to pet, groom and even 'adopt' their own local donkey. They also provide a unique opportunity to observe our local fauna. Interacting with these gentle creatures will forever remain an extraordinary experience in your island adventures.

Guests can of course simply sit back relax and enjoy sun, sand and sea. The Catamaran Club Beach is just a five-minute walk from Banana Tree Bungalows and the excellent Pigeon Point and Galleon Beaches are a short drive away. Falmouth Harbour, a major international yachting hub plays host to some of the world’s finest super yachts during the winter months and stages many world class events including the Antigua Charter Yacht Show, Antigua Sailing Week, and the Antigua Classic Regatta.

The area is popular amongst tourists, yachtsmen and locals alike and is well serviced by supermarkets, shops, boutiques and tourist operators. There is a great selection of restaurants, cafes and bars and a number of nightclubs and live music venues including the breathtaking Shirley Heights Lookout with its unforgettable Sunday steel band and sunset parties.

The nearby English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard, located in Antigua's National Park, are some of the most picturesque parts of Antigua and showcase the maritime history of the island as well as Antigua’s unique natural beauty. Step back in time as you walk amongst the restored original 17th Century buildings at Nelson’s Dockyard, the former home of Lord Horatio Nelson and the Royal British Navy.

Great location, comfortable accommodation plus friendly helpful owners.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at Banana Tree Bungalows. Tracy sent loads of useful information before we arrived so we already knew what we wanted to do. On our arrival and through out our stay she was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The bungalow has great views of Falmouth Harbour, is very comfortable and had everything we needed. Everything was perfect and we had a lovely time.

Lovely bungalow with great views;

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying in these bungalows, and both are excellent. The owners are delightful, greet you upon arrival and are great guides to the area. The cottages are tastefully furnished (sort of a Pottery Barn/Pier One look) - quite charming with very nice linens and towels. Although we ate most of our meals out, the kitchens are well-equipped with everything that you need.

The front porch is a wonderful spot - expansive with a large dining table and a comfortable sitting area with large couches. A great view of Falmouth Harbor and the yachts at anchor.

You'll need a car (although I think there are buses), and you are within minutes of historic English Harbor and Falmouth - with dozens of restaurants to choose from. Lots of beaches nearby. On our last day, we discovered Papa's Restaurant within walking distance - another local gem with a pool and beach on the harbor.

The cottages are immaculate with nice grounds. A housekeeper comes in mid-week to clean and change linens and towels.

We were two couples, and despite the one bathroom, it worked well for us.

Fantastic fortnight !

  • 5 of 5

Tracey so helpful and welcoming; bungalow comfortable and tastefully decorated. Roomy fridge/freezer and useful icebox for collecting groceries, and a laundry room. Efficient air conditioning.

Cool veranda with great view over harbour - spent hours watching the boats. Plenty of wildlife to spot. We were really careful with keeping the door shut and didn't get any mosquito bites.

Property quiet and secluded but grocery store close by, bus stop at the end of the lane. Papas restaurant across the main road worth a visit. We did a week of chilling and a week with a hirecar from Titi to get to the beaches.

Enjoy !

Owner's Response: Thank you both for your fantastic feedback on our little cottage. We are certainly pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and especially that you enjoyed yacht spotting from your verandah. It's a great time of the year to view the yachts coming in for the antigua Yacht Show as most come right through the bay directly in front of us.It was wonderful being able to chat with you about so many topics. Thank you again and hope to see you next year.

The amazing Banana Tree Bungalows!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tracey and Owen's wonderful bungalow for 8 days before the Antigua Charter Show. We could not have asked for a better stay from start to finish. We had the warmest of welcomes from Tracey when we arrived and the bungalow itself was furnished to a high standard, with every detail well thought out. Clearly Tracey and Owen know what they're doing, and how to make your stay very special. The view from the Bungalows is stunning - beyond our expectation and we spent many a morning and evening out on the veranda enjoying the view. One evening we had a BBQ with a few friends which was great fun, and Tracey even went to the trouble of putting fresh flower decorations by the BBQ where we would be sitting.

Overall we cannot recommend this place enough. Fantastic location, beautifully furnished, the best hosts and an amazing view. We WILL be back to stay again!!
