Beautifully situated with great privacy and location tho' I wish I had taken on board the 4wd advice as the house is 4-5 mins from the main road and parts of the road very bad and the car we had was not entirely suitable! Everything prepared for our arrival with fresh flowers and a starter kit in the fridge. Although we arrived late due to flight delays, John had been over and unlocked and put some lights on. I do advise arrival in daylight hours if possible as would be much easier to find! The house is very comfortable and well appointed, both inside and out. You can walk straight from the garden onto the rocks and by going a little left get into the water and snorkel along quite easily. To the right there is a small, easily walkable little beach. Although it goes straight out onto coral there were surfers there one day. The master bedroom has its own bit of terrace, perfect for early morning, and with a hammock for the afternoon zizz! The area is pleasant, easy reach of most places. Having only a week, part of which was Christmas, we did not manage the full tour but saw a lot of the island. We would recommend the Devil's Bridge, particularly after strong winds/swell, there is an amazing blow hole. Also Harmony Hall where I bought some art, though very expensive for drinks or lunch so we passed on that. For watersports we went to Dickenson Bay where there were jet skis and Hobie's for hire, with chairs,umbrellas, bars etc. Half Moon Bay is lovely round to the left towards the rocks/point which we walked round and enjoyed, lovely place to relax and swim and even snorkel pls the boys had good body boarding there when the weather was right. Take cold box with drinks! Escellent large one with cold packs in the house, can take a full picnic, which we even lugged up to an old fort where is was so windy we wished we hadn't! We don't generally go to the same place twice, too much of the world to see (!) but if I were to go back to Antigua I think I would stay at Shell Villa again, it really was right in so many ways. We were a family party of 6, the only thing we would have loved is a really detailed road map of the island, if such a thing exists, as we did get lost just as all the guide books say one will! Otherwise it was all terrific.

A beautiful very private quiet villa at the water's edge on a rocky shore just round the corner from Falmouth and English Harbour where there are amazing superyachts and superb restaurants. It feels almost as though you are on a superyacht when you are in the villa (minus the motion of course). The bedrooms are very comfortable and the villa's facilities are excellent. The approach is about a mile down a very rough road so a 4x4 is almost essential; it is about a 30 mins+ drive to a good sandy beach. Being so close to nature also brings gifts such as squawking tree frogs most of the night. Now there is mains power, a water heater would allow morning hot showers (water currently only hot in the evening). Of course, the sun does not shine every day in Antigua, it can be quite windy, but when it does than can be few nicer places to be than on the deck at Shell Villa.

Shell Villa was perfect in every way. The sound of the sea crashing over the waves and the night-time chorus of the croaking frogs made this location the most idyllic island hideaway. The pool was a warm and inviting temperature where one could watch the sea pelicans diving for fish or just indulge in a lazy swim. The villa was spotless and beautifully maintained by David and Jenny's wonderful helpers, Daphne and Juicy. The welcome pack was much appreciated on arrival and sustained us until the next morning. What a perfect paradise to spend our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We would love to return, right now if we could!

We had a lovely time staying at Carib Hose. Location was amasing and the house was wonderful. Kids loved the pool and so did we. The atmosphere of the whole place was just out of this world ; it was so open and we could not help feeling very much at home there. We miss it still . All praise is due to Louise (the owner) who was always happy to help with anything and recommended some lovely places to visit. The maid Maria was brilliant and loved to play with the kids. I would highly reccomend Carib House to anyone wishing to have a lovely relaxing holiday in the most amazing location.
