Antigua, Luxury Villa, Sleeps 8, Pool, Maid

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa


About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8)


Architect designed Lime Hill was built in traditional colonial style in 2002, and has four air conditioned double bedrooms, each of which has an equally stunning sea view. Enjoy the Infinity swimming pool, surrounded by a secluded tropical garden, or take a few minutes stroll down the hill to the beach. A spacious furnished gazebo was finished in 2014, giving additional living space coupled with truly breathtaking views over Freemans Bay and into Nelson's Dockyard, perfect for a sundowner ot two...

The villa is nestled into the hillside, situated high on the rim of gated 20 acre Galleon Beach Club, Freeman's Bay, very close to historic Nelson's Dockyard, arguably the best location on the Island, being featured on almost every Antigua brochure world wide, which usually shows a panoramic view of the whole Galleon area taken from Shirley Heights. Freeman's Bay is a beautiful quintessentially Caribbean seaside scenario, with a gently sloping white powder beach, calm clear sheltered warm water, bordered by palm trees, as shown in our photographs.

The villa's infinity swimming pool overlooks Galleon and the entrance to Nelson's Dockyard, a favourite haven for yachts of all sizes, always something to see.

On-site seasonal amenities include a beachside restaurant and bar, reception, complimentary day ferry to the Dockyard and nearby the little hamlet of Falmouth, which has a varied selection of shops and a well stocked mini-market. For your Big Shop, there are several excellent large modern supermarkets near St Johns, about 40 minutes drive away.

We are proud that Lime Hill was honoured by being awarded 'Top Vacation Rental 2012' and 'Rated Excellent'.

Could not have been better!

What a delightful place. Wonderful situation and immaculately clean. The villa was a few minutes walk from the beach and a great little beach bar. The owner was very helpful - giving us the name of a super car hire gentleman (Titi) and organising for the maids to get some food in for the first couple of days. Loved watching the sun go down over the harbour - just heaven. .

Lime Hill was impeccable, romantic and a pure dream.

Our visit to Antigua was Aug 3 - 12, 2007. We chose to stay at Lime Hill Villa. I cannot say enough good things about this experience.

The Villa is a gorgeous 4 bedroom home with an infinity pool.

Walking into the villa, you are surrounded by vining, flowering plants that drape the veranda upstairs. It really is breathtaking. There is also an infinity pool that is well maintained and overlooks the harbour.

All bedrooms were air conditioned. There are 3 bedrooms with either Queen or King beds and one downstairs that has 2 twins, so you can eaily sleep 8 people. Each bedroom also has its own bathroom. The master bedroom has an outdoor shower as well.

The main living space had doors that opened up the entire wall in the front and back, allowing the breeze to flow through. There are 3 dining areas; one in the house, one on the back patio and one on the front patio, near the pool, overlooking the gorgeous bay. The kitchen was well equipped. We had everything we could ever need there, including a phone and radio.

The cleaning gal came daily (except Sunday). She continuously added fresh flowers to vases all over the house. It was very private and the views are PRICELESS.

We could have stayed forever.

We stayed a week here and will definitely go back.

We give this 5 stars across the board! Worth every single penny of our hard earned (and very long saved) money! More...

Lime Hill offers the ultimate Caribbean experience.

A beautiful architect designed villa with stunning elevated views over English Harbour. With two terraces,an infinity pool and only a short walk to the beach this villa provides the ideal holiday accommodation. Located close to all local amenities including a good variety of restaurants and bars. Shirley Heights with its famous Jump Up is near by. Lime Hill is the ideal Caribbean holiday home and we look forward returning in the future.

Lime Hill

  • 5 of 5

Lime Hill is an exceptionally beautiful villa in stunning surroundings, really a "home from home".

It surprised us with ful service, including pool cleaning, housekeeper and laundry service. Everything was excellent and we enjoyed a perfect stay during Antigua Sailing Week.

Thank you, Colin!

Our second stay

  • 5 of 5

It really is as good as it looks and Colin's description is "spot on".

This was our second vacation at Lime Hill and while the first holiday was fantastic, this one was even better. The addition of the gazebo is a masterstroke, the whole family spent time there eating, relaxing and enjoying the superb views.

Well done Colin, who is a delight to deal with, always helpful and a fount of knowledge.

From the moment you view the property you know you are in for a treat ...the gardens are a blaze of vibrant color against the white backdrop of the lovely home..infinity pool, lots of patio space and a delightful gazebo all add to the entertainment area and ambience of this perfect vacation retreat .Minutes walk to a picturesque beach and many local restaurants nearby. Inside and out the home is a delight .

A treck flight -wise from California but so worthwhile .......

A delightful lovingly maintained Caribbean home with unbelievable 'moving' harbour views. A short walk to Galleon beach, the Beach Bar or stroll up to a Musical evening at Shirley Heights or just to drink in the views and history of the island. A perfect destination for the perfect holiday in the Caribbean ....... Highly recommended

Lime Hill Christmas 2015

  • 5 of 5

The facilities at this villa are superb, we were a family of 8 adults and an infant and stayed for 18 days.

The bedrooms, living area, pool, and in particular the Gazebo were all beyond our expectations. the views and sunsets spectacular, a short stroll down to the beach and relaxing beach bar, a water taxi or 5 min drive to English harbour with great restaurents and bars...all in all highly recomendable....

Beautiful property with an even more beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our two weeks in Lime Hill - a lovely property with incredible views and an easy 2 minute walk to the Galleon beach & beach bar every morning! The infinity swimming pool is wonderful as are all the facilities in the villa - all immaculate and well maintained. We'd recommend having a car which makes it really easy to visit English Harbour and its many restaurants and surrounding beaches. We all enjoyed our morning hikes or runs up to Shirley Heights with its far-reaching views around the area.
