Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Antigua - Coco House

Villa with large pool and spacious gardens on Exclusive Estate

Coco House standing in its own quiet grounds, is the largest of the 3 Villas on Hamilton Estate, which is situated by Jolly Harbor & the 5* Sugar Ridge Hotel. Jolly Harbor offers shopping, a large supermarket & many restaurants plus the Hotel's pools, gym and spa are available for your use. Hamilton Estate was recently shown on TV's 'Place in the Sun where it received very favorable reviews. Two pristine white sand beaches are just a short walk away.

Coco House is privately owned & its design places great emphasis on outdoor living with external dining areas, large private pool & part shaded pool deck. The lush gardens are extensive, plus also safe & secure for children to play unsupervised. The 3 good sized bedrooms are air conditioned & all have modern en suite bathrooms with either large walk in showers or bath. The kitchen is large and very well equipped for self catering plus there is a gas BBQ on the patio.

Over the last few years, Hayley and I had many brilliant holidays at Coco House, so last January we bought it !

In the last few months, having spent over £ 25k on it's refurbishment , nothing is lacking - new bathrooms, walkways, furniture, kitchen equipment are just part of the story and we are now prepared to share this rather special house with others. For your reassurance we also have Yasmine our property Manager who will look after your needs, great or small throughout your stay.

The quiet location of Coco House is perfect, as it is only 30 minutes from the Airport and just 20 minutes from the capital St Johns. Also within easy walking distance are the contrasting beaches of Jolly Harbor and Valley Church. Although of different characters, both have pristine white powder sand and pure blue water, plus good beach restaurants. Jolly is more commercial with motorized water sports, vendor’s stalls and 'Castaways' restaurant. Valley Church is much quieter, also has a beach bar / restaurant for all day drinks and meals, but is surrounded by lakes and greenery.

Coco House was only built 5 years ago and it’s quality is confirmed by the number of Guests like us who return year after year.

The design puts great emphasis on outdoor living with external dining areas, lounges and a part shaded pool deck. Both the indoor dining area, lounge and kitchen, offer wide double doors to the exterior patios so to maximize the internal cooling and light.

The poolside is the largest of the trio of Villas and is equipped with very comfortable loungers placed either in the sun or shade. The pool is of generous size and of a family designed depth. The gardens are extensive and filled with lush vegetation and many palms – it is perfectly safe for children to play unsupervised in the secure environment away from the raised pool.

The three large bedrooms are all ‘en suite’ each with either triple sized walk in showers or a bath with shower.

On arrival all guests are met at the Airport by our Driver and then at the Villa by Yasmine, who will pass over the keys and explain the house, surrounding attractions, plus will provide the complimentary welcome pack of necessities to get your holiday off to a great start.

Please let us know in advance if you have any special requirements and we will gladly get these arranged for you.

Both the Villa Manager and Driver are at your disposal 24/7 should you have any problems or need any advice.

Accomodation - outside

The Villa has been designed around the Caribbean climate and thus primarily it's ‘al fresco’ living.

The covered outdoor dining area is open to the cooling breeze, plus it is south facing not only for all day sun, but also uninterrupted views of the unspoilt lush hillside and verdant vegetation at the rear of the property. Eating breakfast will possibly be to the serene backdrop of various birds including egrets, maybe the odd mongoose and perhaps a passingcow or goat.

Apart from the dining table and chairs, also undercover are loungers, chairs, sofa and triple burner gas BBQ. By the pool there is another set of table and chairs, even more loungers both in the sun and in the shade, providing ample space for sun worshipers. The pool is of a good size being 14 x 26 and the fully tiled pool deck is again the largest of the Villas. Additionally there is an indoor pool toilet and outside an outdoor shower, which is useful when you come back covered in sand after a day on the beach! The pool has ‘Diamond Brite’ finish, steps at the shallow end, plus a family friendly maximum depth. . The garden has numerous palms, ferns , flowers plus it is externally secured by a screened fence, so children can play in totally safety.

The south facing dining area is accessed by large double doors opening out onto the various patios. From here there are uninterrupted views of the well-stocked gardens plus the densely wooded hillside at the rear of the house. The lounging area outside has comfortable sofa and chairs and pool deck has more tables, chairs and loungers.

The large garden also has table tennis, darts board and some badminton equipment.

Accommodation - indoors

The equally spacious interior is completed by lounge and dining areas, plus a large kitchen. The typical Caribbean exposed wood beamed ceilings are double height, so very cool but have the added comfort of ceiling fans and air conditioning.

The kitchen is open plan with breakfast bar, new large gas cooker and oven, new American sized fridge and freezer, dishwasher, plus is comprehensively equipped for self catering. To guard against mains supply disruptions, there is also large underground water tank.

The dining area has a stone tile topped table, ceiling fan and air-conditioning. The lounge area has a matching coffee table, very comfortable sofas, plasma television (with over 60 channels). There is also audio, a CD player and an i pod dock. These are all supplemented with free WiFi internet connection and a small collection of board games, DVD’s, CD’s and books. The tasteful decor is complemented with original paintings from local artists. In addition you are supplied with a free mobile phone for your stay, which is ideal for making restaurant reservations, booking taxis and checking flights. Next to the bedrooms is a separate utility room with washing machine and tumble drier.


Apart from comfortable beds, all three bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioning and additional ceiling fans. Each room has plenty of draw units, louvered hanging space, hair dryers plus bedside tables with reading lamps. All bedrooms have modern en suite bathrooms equipped with either triple sized walk in showers or bathtubs. All bathrooms are large (smallest is 70 sq ft) and all feature specially imported ‘Roca’ European showers & bath controls.

Master bedroom has triple aspect views with wide doors opening onto the pool deck and windows overlooking the palms and garden - there is also a safe. The en-suite bath room has a large walk in shower.

The twin bedroom has two single beds and en-suite bathroom with the largest of walk in showers

The double bedroom has double bed and en-suite bathroom with full sized bath

In addition there are complimentary cots available and a spare folding bed which can be placed in any of the bedrooms

Getting around the Island is simple by either car, taxi or bus, which drive on the right hand side. The Capital St Johns is home of the cruise liners and International shopping can be found in the totally restored Heritage Quay. Only a few yards away you walk back into history with the old character filled buildings and streets, all safe to walk unlike some Caribbean destinations. In the countryside the many abandoned sugar mills act as a reminder of bygone trade and slavery. Nelsons dockyard is a fully restored working harbor which has won many awards and only a short distance away is Shirley heights and its colonial fort , from where there are stunning views over both the sea and countryside. Worth a visit is Bettys Hope which was Antigua’s first sugar estate and some restoration of the ruins have taken place and the Mill is now totally intact.

Alternatively if relaxing in the sand is your preference, you will be spoil for choice as it is reputed that Antigua has a different beach for everyday of the year, some of the best being just a walk away from Coco House.

Apart from the beaches there is plenty to do, some examples which can be arranged for you are :-

Yacht Charter as a special deal has been arranged for those staying at Coco House. This is a private charter for just your party and includes free transport to & from Coco, plus a complimentary bottle of champagne. This is a superb 50ft yacht with experienced British crew who pander to your every need, including preparing a superb fresh lunch with fine wines. Throughout the day all food and drink is complimentary. Sunbathe on the deck, relax in the shade, snorkel & swim off the side, ride the dingy and perhaps take a turn at the helm if you wish.

For younger ones there is a Donkey sanctuary which is a very simple establishment, but captivating for children who can ‘adopt’ the donkey of their choice. A small fee will make them eligible for a certificate & photo, plus regular updates on their new pet. The sanctuary caters for abandoned, injured and abused animals from all over the island and is a charity. Entry is free.

Alternatively there is rare chance to swim with Sting-rays at Stingray City . A high speed boat takes you out to sea to a pontoon where you can stand or swim in the shallow water. About 30 - 40 rays come in from the Ocean and you can then both stroke, hold and feed them. This is a well organized professional excursion, totally safe for children.

So please give me a ring or e mail and I am sure I can meet your specific needs for a very memorable holiday - thank you.

We had a great time at the house. It was well appointed, plenty of cookware, etc. The pool was great also and the house was clean and well maintained. Walking distance to several great beaches, supermarket, Jolly Harbour, and Sugar Ridge. The Fish and Chips bus across the street was excellent. Thank you for a great stay and we hope to be back!
Owner's Response: Many thanks for spending the time to comment - very appreciated

As you found , the great location of Coco House is just about ideal for anybody who wants the convenience of everything within an easy walk. Add in the highest quality accommodation plus tranquil surroundings and you've got the perfect holiday

I rented this place for some friends who were visiting me on the island where I attend medical school. They stayed the week and I joined them on the weekends. Great place! Location is perfect for those without a car. There is a pool, they could walk to several different beaches, and had restaurants and grocery stores close. Very helpful property manager with a reliable taxi service available if needed and local cell phone. It was clean and well maintained. Thinking of having my folks stay when they come down this semester. Loved the fish and chips trailer right across the way!
Owner's Response: Really appreciate you sparing the time to give such positive feedback. I always try to emphasise the brilliant location of Coco - close to evreything you need, but still offering total peace, tranquility and privacy. As you found out Yasmine , my property manager is a true professional and absolute gem - I will pass your comments on. Also the complimentary telephone provided always goes down well, as guests do not suffer expensive roaming charges as if they used their own.

Again thanks for the comments and would be very welcome to help your folks

Coco house was a most delightful home for our 10 day holiday. Spacious, exceptionally clean, well-equiped and conveniently situated for all the local beaches and supermarket. We were greeted upon arrival by Yasmine, the House Manager who explained everything we needed to know and more about Coco House & the surrounding area. We felt instantly safe and at home. The Maintenance man Don was also extremely helpful and even provided us with Aloe Vera leaves to aid our suntan! Every morning we were greeted by the sounds of the local birds and we looked forward to joining them on the generous verandah for a relaxing breakfast. The evenings were beautifully quiet other than an ocassional, background music coming from the Pizza restaurant opposite which we enjoyed - as we did their Pizzas! The pool was clean & well kept along with the garden areas which surrounded the property. We chose to use Alamo Car rental but we shall never do so again in the future as the service & the cars were dreadful.Avoid them for happier transportation around the island!
All in all a truly lovely holiday!
Owner's Response: Really glad that your stay was so enjoyable and thank you for your positive feedback.

Being our own home for a month each year it is obviously a very special place to us, so it is very gratifying that our Guests share our own views on the property, like its calm location, the local facilities and the excellent staff we have attending to their needs.

I understand the comments about the hire car you organised so have made arrangements with the Company situated in the nearby hotel, to provide Coco's guests cars of real quality but also at a discounted price - thus in future, touring this beautiful island should be a real pleasure.

Again our appreciation and my guarantee that we will strive to continue our current high standards

I stayed here with my daughter , partner and three children and had a great time finding it far better than staying at a hotel as we felt as though we saw and participated in the 'real' Antigua.

The house is beautiful , really spacious inside and out, also is superbly well appointed. Large gardens were perfect for the children during the day and the big terrace for our family barbecues at night.
The place is well equipped for self catering, but didn't have to use the supermarket all the time as Don the Gardner who was very helpful, found us fresh mangos off a local tree and sometimes fresh fish for the B B Q.

Location is good , so much so that although we rented a car for the 2 weeks, it got used it a few times because house is situated midway between two very good beaches Valley Church and Jolly harbour - both easy walking even after a few rum punches. Having visited Antigua before we know that beaches around this part of the island offer the best all round experience. Great stretches of white sand, clear calm water for snorkeling and not packed with people. Valley Church was favorite, not just because of the soft sand but also because the staff at the 'Nest' beach restaurant were so accommodating to our children's needs.

Had a fabulous day trip on Jaberwockey yacht, Shirley Heights is good fun and also well worth visiting is Sugar Ridge hotel next door, if only for their restaurant (Carmichaels) and infinity pool at the top of the hill.

A nice touch was the mobile phone provided for local calls and the very helpful representative (Yasmine) who dropped in a couple of times to make sure everything was OK with the house ( it was!) and who made some great suggestions on what local sights to visit.

A really positive experience and would recommend Coco House to anyone.
Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments which are really appreciated and pleased to see all my efforts in maintaining 'Coco' to the highest standards are recognised

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION is so important for a sucessfull holiday and I an pleased that you found 'Coco' to be so well situated. Not too close to Jolly Harbour which can get a bit frenetic, but in a quiet position and with easy walking for all its facilities. Now it is even better because 2 new good restaurants have opened up within a couple of minutes of the Villa.
You certainly will not go hungry here, so please come back soon.

Coco House ,Hamilton Estate, Antigua

After a very slow start with major delays at the airport we were very pleased to find a beautiful retreat at CocoHouse.
The villa was perfect. Everything you could ask for was available.
Very well equipped and homely villa
The pool was a very welcome break from the sunbathing.
Although there is a hotel "Sugar Ridge" next door to the villa it occupies a very quiet position with the added bonus of entertainment and fine dining just at the end of the drive. Excellent !!

The beaches were fabulous and our favourite by far was Valley Church with the "Nest beach bar".
We had a most wonderfull holiday and would love to return again.
You could not wish for a more perfect holiday.
Owner's Response: Many thanks for your positive feedback. One of the main reasons for us buying 'Coco' was that Hamilton Estate is in the best possible position with shops, restaurants and beaches all withing easy walking distance. Also unlike some of the other local Estates there is great privacy here, plus having the Hotel next door adds an extra degree of security.

Again my appreciation

Roger & Hayley

Coco House is situated at the exclusive Hamilton Estate on the West coast of Antigua, thus faces the Caribbean sea.

Transfers take about 30 minutes from the Airport and about 20 minutes from St Johns the Capital. The peaceful location is flanked on one side by the new 5* Sugar Ridge Hotel and green open land on the other, then densley wooded rolling hills at the rear. A ten minute walk takes you to Jolly Harbour, which is the premier Marina on the west coast, so apart from the golf course, many yachts, boats and restaurants, there is an excellent commercial centre which caters for all your needs. The whole area is surrounded by world class soft powder sand beaches and azure sea.

Antigua is the closest of the major Caribbean Islands with a flight time of under 8 hours. It's small size of only about 100 square miles with a population of 85000 means it is easy to get round, plus it has one of the most envied climates in the West Indies, lying where the Caribbean sea meets the Atlantic. Its proximity to the equator means that there are no distinct weather seasons and is regarded as the driest of the Caribbean Islands with little difference in temperature each year. The normal daily temperature is about 27'C (80'f) with a variation of just a few degrees either side during the year. Winter is regarded as December - March, but most of the rain falls August - November. The hurricane season is technically July - November, but being so far south of the hurricane belt, means that it is almost 20 years since the Island was last devastated by 'Louis'. Antigua is one of the Leeward Islands, so benefits from cooling trade winds which makes the tropical climate very acceptable. These winds also make it a great location for sailing and water sports, additionally the crystal clear waters are great for diving and snorkeling.
