Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Falmouth - Dieppe Bay House

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Perfect for families or groups of adults, Dieppe Bay House is on the seafront with spectacular views of Falmouth Harbour, Pigeon Beach and in the distance, the masts of world class mega yachts that visit the sailors' paradise of Antigua. Set in an acre of lush tropical gardens, Dieppe Bay House is the perfect choice for a relaxing holiday. Guests have the choice of sunbathing on the deck by the pool; chilling in the hammock down by the sea; cooling off in the poolside gazebo; enjoying the gardens or simply relaxing on the terrace. When it comes to dining, you can enjoy a meal on the terrace prepared in the fully equipped kitchen or for a more relaxed evening you can barbecue next to the sea in the rustic dining area with driftwood furniture and a gazebo. A holiday at Dieppe Bay will be truly relaxing with a housekeeper to look after you Monday to Friday; plus a gardener, pool service and property manager - all included in the cost. A chef and babysitting can also be arranged.

The house comfortably sleeps 10 in proper beds or 14 with truckles.

Why Melanie St John chose Falmouth

As a family we fell in love with the Caribbean back in 1999. After several happy holidays in Barbados, a friend recommended Antigua and we were hooked. We first saw Dieppe Bay House in 2003 - an unfinished new build sitting in a muddy garden with few plants and no pool. Despite all the downsides, we knew we could make it the home of our dreams and set to. The early years were tricky as we got to know which local builders to trust and what would work with the climate in the house and garden. Almost ten years on, we have a house and garden that we are very proud of and the perfect base for many happy holidays over the year. We would love to share it with you.

What makes this villa unique

When we arrive from cold England - particularly in December, the first thing we do is head into the garden and onto the beach. The beautiful boats - from super yachts to small dinghies sailing by; the hungry pelicans dive bombing for their latest meal; the lap of the waves; the chatter of the fishermen; and occasionally the glimpse of a turtle. And then the next morning - dawn over Falmouth Harbour is stunning with the call of the barbary ducks in the background. Lastly the smell ... described by a journalist from The Times newspaper as 'the air smells like coconut; like moss; like wet brown sugar; like rum'

Moonraker

  • 5 out of 5
After leaving the rainy west of England arriving in the perfumed warmth of Antigua is heaven - arriving at Dieppe Bay House is paradise confirmed. Perfectly positioned, with views over and access to a sandy beach with excellent snorkelling, Dieppe Bay House is extraordinarily comfortable and welcoming, with its huge terrace as well as first floor balconies, and the perfect swimming pool for young and old alike and masses of space in sun or shade with lots of sunbeds. Difficult as it is to leave the house and garden there is much to see and do on the island, especially the beautiful beaches and every kind of water sport, and then you can come back and have a wonderful evening barbecue by your own stretch of water. You do need a car as there are some very good restaurants within easy reach as well. My chief recommendation of a stay in Dieppe Bay House is that I have stayed there FIVE times!

5***** Island Hideaway

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and myself had the most memorable holiday, of our lives at Dieppe Bay House. We were in the swimming pool everyday, and also enjoyed relaxing on the second floor terrace. The property is wonderful with great sea views and a mature garden, which gives you freedom and privacy. With restaurants and attractions near by, it is the perfect Island getaway.

The Perfect Island Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed several times at Dieppe Bay House, it truly is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The description is accurate but cannot even come close to giving you the atmosphere, which is exquisite! You only have to walk into the lounge to feel the cares of your real world dissipate and once you have looked out of the windows onto the pool and beyond to the perfect views you are hooked!
The place is spotless and beautifully maintained. The maid, gardener and owners could not be more accommodating. They all make your stay idyllic!
We would recommend this beautiful villa and the surrounding areas which you can visit from it to any age group. With many beautiful beaches nearby, Pigeon Beach and Half Moon Bay, historical places such as Nelsons Harbour to visit and a fantastic selection of restaurants catering for every taste, Rum Babas, Tappas, Caribbean Taste. You are spoilt for choice.

Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
We have been visiting Antigua for over 10 years. This past February we had the opportunity to stay at Dieppe Bay House.

The house was beautiful with plenty of room for our family of 8. Every couple had their own bedroom and bath. The pool was perfect and well maintained. Coming from Minnesota, there was nothing better than floating all afternoon under the sun in the refreshing pool.

Pauline came to clean at 8:00 every morning which was never a problem. She really allowed us our privacy and kept the house in perfect shape. She also was a great resource for new activity ideas and restaurants.

We cooked in, ate out (Live & Trappas both HIGHLY recommended), and had some meals prepared by Anne, a local caterer, she would drop off our dinner choice in the afternoon, we would return from our day of adventure to find a fresh meal waiting for us in the kitchen. Fish Tacos were the best…Her Vegetable Lasagna was enough for two meals! These meals were amazing and we will definitely request more next time we visit.

The location could not have been better. It really is location, location, location down a long quiet dirt road. Dieppe Bay is only about 2.5 miles from town where there are lots of restaurants and shops. Grocery and liquor store maybe 1 mile away.

We spent much of our time exploring the island, and while relaxing at Dieppe Bay, watched the large sail ships come and go from the harbor.

Deippe Bay was located right on the ocean but did have debris float up along the shore. If you are not up to swimming at the house, a perfect beach is directly across the harbor. “Pigeon Point Beach” has gorgeous sand with lots of sun and trees for those that bathe in the shade. At one end of the beach is “Bumpkins” Restaurant, a perfect place for lunch, a cold pina colada or to use the bathroom!

We cannot wait to return for another perfect winter vacation at Dieppe Bay House.

Relaxing Villa

  • 4 out of 5
Dieppe Bay house is a well loved house, very large (great for large groups), full of Caribbean character, Caribbean style (as opposed to boutique style), very clean, relaxing atmosphere, with excellent staff and free Wifi. Recommend Annie's home cooked meal! Good location, however you must have a car, then everywhere on the island is within easy access. Short drive to the lovely Falmouth Harbour. House is on the water, however no direct access to swimmable beach. Easy drive to beautiful beaches. Personal favourite was Darkwood Beach (near Jolly Harbour). To be honest, the pool was more impressive in the photos than in reality. Enjoyable stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. There IS direct access to Dieppe Bay beach at the bottom of the garden which is swimmable depending on the time of year and storms. Recently there has been a large amount of seaweed washed up on the beach, however, we and our guests often swim off the beach - there is great snorkelling in the shallow water by the rocks.
