About the property

5 bed, 5 bathroom house opposite Nelson's Dockyard, English Harbour

Exquisite views overlooking Nelson's Dockyard and just a (flat!) three minute walk to English Harbour and Falmouth restaurants, bars and Yacht Club. Kittyhawk is perfectly positioned to greet Talisker Rowers - or any boats coming into English Harbour. Kittyhawk sleeps 8/10 comfortably within the house and cottage with king size four poster beds, air con in all bedrooms and pure white cotton linen bedding. Private pool overlooking Nelson's Dockyard, with large decking area, large gas bbq and plenty of sun loungers. Additional large outdoor, shaded seating/dining area - ideal for early evening cocktails. Large sitting room with tv, wifi, Sonos, plenty of books and games etc.. Well equipped kitchen with large range oven, microwave, NutriBullet and plenty of cutlery, crockery and glasses for entertaining. Huge fridge/freezer plus separate wine fridge. All towels/linen (including swimming towels) included. Maid service available on request. Our local on-island manager can arrange transfers from the airport and meet you at the house. Kittyhawk is very much a family home - it's very relaxed - but we do suggest that the property is not suitable for children under the age of 8. We are happy to advise on local chefs etc and there is an excellent house manual detailing plenty of local restaurants and "things to do". The bedroom configuration is as follows: Main House - Master bedroom with king size four poster, ensuite and dressing area, "Coral" Bedroom with kingsize four poster, ensuite and dressing area, "Pineapple Bedroom" with kingsize four poster and own bathroom opposite. Downstairs is another bedroom with two double sleigh beds, own bathroom and dressing area - ideal for teenagers. The cottage is located next door to the house and also has a king size four poster, ensuite, sitting room/kitchen - ideal for those who want a bit of privacy. There is parking for two cars right by the house and for additional cars just opposite.

About Izzy James

Simon and I moved back to Derbyshire from London many years ago, to bring up our three children who have now (almost!) flown the nest. We love the Peak District but also enjoy travelling - hence the house in Antigua! Kittyhawk is very much a relaxed, family home and we just love the fact that you can walk to all the activities, bars and restaurants in English Harbour.

Izzy James purchased this house in 2014

Why Izzy James chose Falmouth Harbour

We first visited Antigua in 2014 an instantly fell in love with the island. Its' relaxed atmosphere and warm, welcoming people made us feel at home immediately. We looked at so many properties on the island but realised that English Harbour was by far and away the best location for us. In the UK, although living in glorious countryside we have to drive everywhere - what a treat to be able to walk to endless restaurants - all within 5 minutes, in English Harbour. We have had several exceptional Christmases and New Year's Eve's there - a big bonus is that you can see the fireworks on Fort Berkeley from our deck!

What makes this house unique

What sets Kittyhawk aside is that whilst many properties are listed as being in English Harbour - we really are in the middle of English Harbour. We love sitting on the deck with morning coffee watching the sun come up or evening cocktails admiring all the twinkling yacht lights. The view really is magical!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a wonderful week in this outstanding villa to escape the English winter weather. Had the most amazing time and hard to summarise how special this place is.

The views over the harbour continuously change as boats come and go. The villa is ideally situated being in easy walking distance of some lovely restaurants and bars but far enough away to be so peaceful when having dinner at the villa.

Great swimming pool and the villa is really well equipped to allow you to cook and enjoy the barbeque.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this jewel of a place.

Outstanding Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Kittyhawk House is the perfect group vacation pick for Antigua. There were 9 of us at the house and it didn’t feel at all crowded. The location, private pool and management staff were outstanding! The house is fully stocked with everything we needed for our large group. Everyone wants to come back. We highly recommend the Kittyhawk House.
