Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Saint Paul - Dieppe Bay House

Sleeps up to 14. Two/four bedroom rates also offered. Refurbished for 2016

Dieppe Bay House is a beautiful sea front villa set in an acre of tropical gardens in an off the beaten track location in the south of Antigua. Only five minutes drive to local shops and restaurants, the house has stunning views across Falmouth Harbour to the distant masts of the yacht clubs An acre of garden gives the villa lots of outdoors space and includes a gorgeous pool with sundeck, gazebo, rustic beach BBQ area, sun terrace and lawn leading down to the sea.

A full refurbishment has been carried out for the 2016 season. This brings a much larger outdoor covered terrace overlooking the pool; a larger second bedroom suite; a new cinema room/study; and full redecoration throughout.

Three of the bedrooms have private terraces and two with four poster beds All bedrooms have ensuite bath/shower room and air conditioning. There is a newly built one bedroom guest cottage in the garden complete with walk in shower and double ended free standing bath. Monday to Friday maid service is included along with a gardener/pool service and on call property manager. The house is well suited for families and has Cable TV with DVD library, games, books and CD collection. Cooks/provisioning/baby sitting can all be arranged at additional cost.

Why Melanie St John chose Antigua

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'

What a fantastic house, in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house on this stunning island. The house has everything that you could want, 5 luxurious rooms all with bathrooms - masses of shade in the garden to avoid the midday sun, but plenty of sun loungers adjacent to the idilic pool in the quiet private garden.

Beautiful house on friendly island

  • 5 of 5

Dieppe Bay House is a beautiful and beautifully maintained house idea for the climate with large areas opening on to a pool with views over the sea. We were a large family (six adults, grandparents and parents, with seven grandchildren from 16 to 4) and we fitted perfectly into the accommodation with ideal family separation. The young were semi-permanently in the pool when we were not out and about on the island.

We were welcomed and shown round the house without fuss by Anna. We had also arranged through Patricia a taxi/minibus from JB from the the airport and we had hired cars conveniently and without fuss delivered to the house at our convenience through Titi (driving is relaxed and dodging potholes encourages leisurely speeds). All completely relaxed and trouble free.

Around the house Pauline did the housekeeping and was a valuable and helpful presence. We had also arranged for Patsy and her assistant Goldeen to do the food and drink shopping and to cook breakfast and dinner (we were often out and about in the day). Catering like this is actually economical on a per person per day basis and very flexible and convenient. The arrangements are ideal for a big family or a group of friends. Antigua is a friendly island. Where else do people entering a shop or office say good morning generally to the assembled company and where else does a lifted hand from the driver of a car meet with a friendly smile and return greeting from people sitting at the roadside or on their house porch.

We were there in July which is out of season. The advantage of this is that many sights like Nelson's dockyard, the little Museum in town, swimming with stingrays at Stingray City or swimming from the best beaches in the world are blissfully uncrowded. The disadvantage is that some of the restaurants may be closed (but there are still plenty of good ones).I have never really understood the "low season" thing. It is clearly not Christmas or Easter holidays, but in the "off season" the weather is still beautiful, cooled by trade winds and with air-conditioning in the nights if you find it too hot (my wife and I did not use it, preferring a tropical breeze (and no mosquitoes)). There is the "hurricane season" but my brother and I have clocked up a collective eight decades or so living in the Caribbean and never actually been in a hurricane, so I am personally very relaxed. And the house would definitely not blow down!

All in all a highly recommended house and location.

Dreamy Dieppe Bay

  • 5 of 5

Dieppe Bay House is a place that completely gets under your skin as soon as you set foot in it. The house itself is absolutely stunning - sitting right on the water with it's own beach, the hills behind it and a view over the bay to the famous

Pidgeon Beach, I cannot think of anywhere on the island I'd rather stay. The layout, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, cinema, cottage, pool.....everything was pristine and as described. I personally don't believe that any photo could do this place justice, you genuinely have to see it and take it all in yourself. Pauline, the housekeeper, is utterly charming and very sweet, always making sure you have everything you need and keeping the place in ship shape.

I fell so in love with Dieppe Bay House that I have booked to go out there again with some friends, I cannot think of anywhere else I'd rather go. What a happy and beautiful place, I feel incredibly lucky to have found it.

In love with Dieppe Bay House!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Antigua and loved our stay at this beautiful property.

The large house and property are simply lovely and lacking nothing!

We spent a lot of time enjoying the pool and the gorgeous garden as well as the sandy beach area on the property.

The road to the villa is a bit of a bone jarring ride ! But we got used to it . We enjoyed exploring the entire island and endless beaches and beautiful sights. The locals we met on the island were so friendly !

We would absolutely love to return to Antigua and Dieppe Bay House !

Highly recommended!

West of England


  • 5 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!
