Delightful four bedroom villa with swimming pool at English Harbour, Antigua

Bedrooms 4
Space 3,500 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Stunning fully serviced villa from £535/ $780 to £640/ $935 per night, sleeps 8.

Nestling high and central on the rim of the 20 acre Galleon Beach Club, Lime Hill commands a spectacular view over Freemans Bay and historic Nelson's Dockyard. Completed in 2002, this quality two storey Colonial style villa is furnished in traditional Caribbean style, with each of the four air-conditioned bedrooms enjoying a truly breathtaking view.

The fully equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, microwave, induction hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer/ice maker and water purifier leads into the spacious lounge/dining room, which features large glass sliding patio doors on opposite sides to keep the whole room cool without needing a/c , assisted by paddle fans, enabling tropical outdoor/indoor living. The rear patio doors open onto the furnished walled stonework terrace giving privacy and seclusion.

The pool area has plenty of sun loungers, chairs and dining furniture for eight and the whole property is surrounded by tropical gardens.

Free wifi, laundry and maid service six days a week..

In 2014, a spacious gazebo was completed, giving additional accommodation and spectacular views over English Harbour, perfect for a sundowner or three...

Three minutes stroll down the hill takes you to the beautiful white sand beach, lapped by calm clear water.

Whilst a hire car is not essential, it is recommended as there are so many interesting things to see and do on the Island.

Antigua roads are not of the best, and the Lime Hill drive quite steep and slippery when wet, so a 4x4 may be worth considering. If you rent a car from TIti, he will collect and return you from and to the airport free of charge.

Lime Hill costs from £535 to £640 per night, depending on season, that is from just £68 (about US $100) per person.

Galleon Beach has 24 hour security.

This is a fantastic villa in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of adults and a child and the villa was perfect. All 4 bedrooms are well appointed and all 4 shower/bathrooms are very good. The master bedroom has an outdoor shower! All amenities are excellent. The view is fantastic and the large, airy gazebo is a great boon. The pool is great and the view fantastic.

Stunning house, stunning location

  • 5 of 5

A really well designed house and pool, that makes the very most of a beautiful location. It was the perfect setting for our three generation family holiday, including a toddler.

The house has real elegance and charm - but with a homely and loved feel to it. Definitely not a sterile magazine photo shoot property!

The outside space is really well used, including a lovely secluded outdoor shower and a great gazebo area. Despite the steep site, the layout is very child friendly and our toddler just loved the infinity pool. The garden is full of colour, attracting lots of humming birds.

The beach is a two minute walk down the hill. Almost deserted during our stay, it's a beautiful and sheltered sandy bay with turtles to swim with just offshore.

Within a five minute drive are lots of good bars and restaurants. The Academy, Cloggys and Pillars were our favourites.

And the owner, Colin, was helpful and responsive both before and during our stay.

We left with many happy memories - and hope to be back!

My favourite Villa

  • 5 of 5

Lime Hill is a superb property in a wonderful location, the views over Freeman Bay are some of the best in Antigua, the passage of yachts great and small making their way into English Harbour provide a tableaux throughout the day, best viewed from the spacious gazebo with a glass or two in your hand.

This was our second holiday at Lime Hill and I would not hesitate to recommend it, it really is wonderful.

Colin provides superb customer service and the descriptions of the property and surroundings whilst accurate don't do justice to the feeling of being at home whenever I am there.

Lovingly maintained by caring owners

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully well maintained Caribbean gem perfectly situated on Galleon beach, English Harbour for Yachties, Beach Bums and History Buffs alike. A wonderful base for a perfect holiday.

Christmas @ Lime Hill

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic very private and spacious 4 bedroom villa. Each bedroom feels almost like a private apartment, ideal for a large family or indeed 4 couples. The raised gazebo ( with it own fridge ) is an added feature and great for lunch, dinner or just chilling. There is a great selection of really nice restaurents and bars close by. The villa is well maintained and the maid service extremely friendly. The resort ( Galleon Beach ) while a little tired maintains an 'bygone age' of tranquillity and charm, our family know it well, it suits us, we love it, and keep coming back.

Car: recommended

Lime Hill is 5 minutes drive from English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard, the only fully functioning Georgian dockyard in the world, a paradise for those who love the sea and Royal Navy history. A water taxi can be rented from the beach area to take you to the Dockyard, a lovely 3 minute ride, and a few minutes walk to Falmouth will bring you to a shopping area which includes a small supermarket. A diverse range of restaurants and bars in all price brackets abounds in the area.
