Oceanfront Property with direct access to the sea


Home Description

Our cottage is solid brick construction with beautiful cathedral wood ceilings. The entire cottage is tiled and the windows have screens. The room has a kingsize bed, 2 lounge chairs with a small table and a small desk.

The kitchenette has a refrigerator/freezer, a 3-burner gas-cooktop, and all kitchen utensils.

The bathroom is tiled and has a shower. The outside terrace is for dining and relaxing and has a table and chairs.
Behind the cottage are a large washtub, a washing machine, and a clothesline.

Through the garden, you come directly to the coast and a small, sandy beach about 50 yds.away.

The garden has many exotic palm trees and flowering trees and shrubs. Many birds, incl.several different hummingbirds can be seen here and seabirds can be observed from the coast.

Interesting pieces of information: Our property is ideally located to explore the island. Leaving the gate to the east you first come to a beautiful sandy beach with shallow areas at both ends. Going on you pass the American University of Antigua and come to the

airport. If you follow the main road, it will lead you to the beaches on the northeast (Long Bay) and the southeast

(Halfmoon Bay). Turning west at the airport, you come into town and can go to the Dickenson Bay or Runaway Bay

beaches, or, turning south, you come to the beaches on the west and southwest coast and many big hotels. After a

few miles, you can go on a small road and climb Boggy Peak (now Mount Obama), 1319 ft. After that, you can drive

through the rainforest and will reach the village of Liberta. From here you have a magnificent view of Falmouth and

English Harbour. At the end of the road is Nelsons Dockyard and turning left, you will come to Shirley Heights.

You can try to visit as many beaches as possible (there are 365, one for every day of the year) or do one of the

many excursions with boats around the island or for a picnic on the beach. If you like deepsea fishing, you can charter one of our yachts 

Going around the island as described on § 1 is a very nice tour for a full day. And you can certainly sit on a beach and

do nothing at all, after all, it's your vacation.

And if you have money to burn, visit one of the dutyfree shopping centers in town.

What to bring ?: Most visitors bring too many things. You really don't need much clothing, unless you intend to go out every night. But

the atmosphere in most places is relaxed and only one hotel asks for a jacket and tie if you want to have dinner with them. Shorts will do in most cases, but please, do not go in a bikini into town!

You need a good sunscreen, a good hat or cap and a change of swimsuits. If you want to go snorkeling, bring your own

fins and mask, that goes for diving as well, but you do not need tanks, vests or regulators, the dive shops have that.

You can buy most medicines on the island, but if you need certain prescription drugs, better bring enough for your stay

Since you will be self-catering, all foods are available in very well stocked supermarkets (they are more expensive here

than in Europe), so you really don't need to bring anything.

Do you need a Laptop? Drivers License is important!

Located on a privately owned waterfront property at Hodges Bay, an upper-class residential area on Antigua's north coast, this charming cottage is just a short drive (1.2 mi.) from a superb white sand beach, fine restaurants (1.0 ml) and a small supermarket (1.2 mi). Cedar Valley Gold course is 4.2 mls away.

The gardens are planted with one of the largest collection of palmtrees and flowering trees and shrubs.

About The Area

Hodges Bay is an upscale residential area. Our neighbors are the Governor General of Antigua and the Brazilian Ambassador.

It's a scenic coastal road to the airport and most of the beaches on the east coast, going west you come into town and the beaches on the west- and south coast. A beautiful large beach is only about 1.2 miles away and several restaurants are in the immediate neighborhood. 

House Rules

We have only a few "rules". Since the property not only has the 2 cottages but is also the residence of the owner and his family, we try to be quiet as much as possible. We will explain all the details once our guests arrive and help whenever information is needed.


The cottages are not suitable for the disabled and we do not accept small children. But even here exceptions can be made.
