About the property

Raw And Rustic Waterfront Retreat. One Of A Kind Home In A Unique Location

Bluff House is perched on a Bluff overlooking its own private cove. It is secluded, breezy and beautiful. It is a three minute walk from the famous Half Moon Bay, a one mile stretch of white sandy beach boasting turquoise blue waters with both calm and tranquil spots to swim or waves perfect for body boarding and advanced kite surfing. On and near the beach are also two local run restaurants. Bluff House is a ten minute drive from Non-Such Bay and resort which is a five minute boat trip from one of the top kite surfing destinations in the world . In the same area is Harmony Hall featuring a five star Italian restaurant. It is a 25 minute drive from Falmouth and English Harbour with its historical sites, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shops and one of the two largest Super and Mega Yachting hubs in the Caribbean. Bluff House boasts a swimming pool, games room (with pool table, darts, table tennis and surround sound), four outdoor eating areas, separate en-suite cottage (sleeps two) and en-suite bunk house (sleeps four) with outdoor shower. The main house has a fully equipped kitchen with larder and pantry, a welcoming entrance way and dining room and comfortable lounge. Many rooms are air-conditioned. The lounge has a 50 inch TV with an apple computer containing movies and a dvd player that plays european dvd's. The sound is played through a surround sound bose stereo system. All rooms in the main house have 4G internet access through a wifi router and large booster antenna. A local mobile phone is provided with the house for local calls. Separate to the main house and cottages there is a laundry room, generator room, covered surf shed and store room/office. There are electric gates with pedestrian side entrance that opens onto ample parking, a paved soccer court and gardens. The property is fully fenced in. Bluff House would be best described as a retreat. It boasts more than a 180 degree ocean view with not another dwelling or home in sight. It could best be enjoyed as a romantic getaway, or by two close families, or by a gang of friends eager to kite surf. It provides ultimate / complete privacy for those trying to escape the lime light and would be considered a writers dream! Bluff House is a lovely home with a family feel set in a beautiful location.

The Bluff- Vacation Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This property was awesome. A retreat that offered privacy, and beautiful views of the ocean, we even saw a whale as we'll as a swimming pool that we used we used each day. A very short walk took us to the beach. Clean and well furnished home made our vacation very special. The housekeep and gardener were excellent. I would highly recommend this home for a very special vacation away from the crowds.

Definitely secluded!!

  • 3 of 5

This property is very private and secluded. It is a couple of minutes walk from Half Moon Bay. We were disappointed that all other beaches within proximity were on private land and only accessible by boat. We therefore had to drive a minimum of 25 minutes to get to the next beach. If laying by the pool or visiting the same beach is your preference, this place is perfect. If trying to hit as many beaches as possible is your thing, this place is on the opposite side of the island to most of the other beaches. The property owner was very responsive to some issues that we had and the caretakers were very nice. I would give this property a 10 out of 10 had it not been for the issues we encountered with the property and the fact that we only had access to one local beach. 7 out of 10.

Spectacular spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Antigua and at Bluff House. The house is located on an absolutely gorgeous piece of property with breathtaking views. We woke up every morning and went to sleep every night to the sound of the crashing surf. The house is very comfortable, the pool was glorious and the game room was a huge hit. The walk to Half Moon Bay beach is literally two minutes away and is, in our opinion, the prettiest beach on the island. We would happily stay at Bluff House again.

A paradise for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this private escape! The house was very large (larger than we actually required), well equipped with every thing we could need, and a stone's throw to a gorgeous beach.

The home owner's were fabulous - I don't think we could have asked for better people to rent from - and the staff (namely Wendy) were very welcoming and friendly.

Half Moon Bay, less than two minutes walk away, is a large and lovely beach (but fairly secluded, so it isn't overrun with tourists), and there is two places to eat less than five minutes walk from the home - the Beach Bum Cafe & Smiling Harry's - both excellent choices for a good quick meal. And a short 10 minute drive away is The Road House Restaurant, which has a popular Reggae night on Sunday's.

You really can't go wrong with this location as your home base in Antigua if you are looking to get away from the crowds, but stay within range of the fun!

We particularly enjoyed listening to the surf crash into the rock's below the bluff at night. It was exceedingly peaceful and a wonderful way to go to sleep.

A sincere thank you Pammie & Mick for making this a wonderful vacation for us! Your kindness will be remembered.
