Property description

Byam house nestles in a beautiful hillside just above the white sands of Galleon Beach. There are four separate and very private bedrooms each with its own shower room. There are two double bedrooms featuring their own private balconies with stunning views across the bay towards the caribbean sea. All bedrooms have A/C, ceiling fans and mosquito nets over the beds. Tucked beneath the house there is a laundry room with a large capacity washing machine.

The house has benefitted from recent refurbishment, including new kitchen units, fridge / freezer, washing machine and soft furnishings. The kitchen opens onto the verandah where there is a large dining table. The kitchen also opens onto the garden at the rear so there is always a cool breeze blowing through the house. For those preferring to shelter from the sun indoors, there is a comfortable sitting room that has views over the bay.

The house boasts its own private swimming pool surrounded by a large area of decking and sun beds. The two twin rooms have large french windows that open on to the decking beside the pool. The garden at the front of the house leads down to the beautiful unspoilt sand of Galleon beach, which is a mere one minute stroll, where guests may also take advantage of a private beach area with ample shade, they may also make use of beach chairs, and kayaks, which are available to guests free of charge.

Just across the crystal clear blue waters of English harbour sits the historic Nelson's Dockyard which is as rich in naval history as it is in local culture, food and hospitality. You can discover the forts and cannons that once protected the harbour, and you can't fail to spot the odd anchor still resting in the very spot where it was once laid down by Nelson's fleet. The dockyard itself is a triumph of restoration, incorporating local shops, bars and restaurants, which blend beautifully into the Georgian elegance and grandeur of one of the most historically important and prestigious dockyards in the world.

The unbeatable location and surroundings of English Harbour mean that the elegance of Byam house, with it's stunning verandah, pool and balconies, is only the beginning....

Car: Recommended

The house is in a wonderful location on the beach at Galleon Beach in English Harbour. The beach is safe, quiet and an absolute paradise. A short boat or car ride away is Nelson's Dockyard where Nelson built a naval base on the deep water harbour. Many of the old buildings have been renovated and now house a museum and a couple of shops and bars. It is a fascinating place to visit.

On the hill above the house is Shirley Heights. You can hike up the trail to the top. The view from here is amazing. Every Sunday night there is a BBQ and party here and you can watch the sunset and dance to a live band.

We always say that there is something for everybody in English Harbour. You can hike, swim, sail, snorkel, dive (there is a dive school), kayak, lie on the beach, look at historic remains, play golf (at Jolly Beach), watch cricket, ride (there is a riding school where you can hack to a huge deserted beach), read, relax, eat and drink. What more could you want!
