Property Description

Shell Villa is tucked away inside Turtle Bay on the south coast of Antigua, near Falmouth Harbour. Enjoy utter privacy and quiet as you sit on its large new ocean-front deck and gaze at the spectacular sunsets over gently smoking Montserrat. Surrounded by stunning vistas of ocean and the gentle slopes surrounding Rendezvous Bay, not a single building mars the view - a very private bit of paradise.

Guests will be met at the airport by Valentino, who will drive you to the Villa, or guide you if you hire a car. Shell Villa has three double bedrooms, all with air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms, a large kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a spacious living/dining area with free high speed internet. It has weekly garden, pool and maid service. The pool and barbeque area and the gardens are planted with gorgeous bougainvillaea, hibiscus, and palms.

Bedroom Description

All three bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and airconditioning. They can each be made up as king size double beds or as full size twins.

Location Description

Self sustaining and environmentally friendly, Shell Villa has solar panels with a backup generator and also has mains electricity. Voltage is US style 110/60 cycles. Additionally, its large water cistern enables you to enjoy pure rainwater for drinking, showering etc.

The gentle lap of waves on the shore lulls you to sleep, and greets you again as you wake to that wonderful Caribbean morning light. A short stroll along Turtle Bay there is a small pebble beach with sea shells and sea birds aplenty.

While the time you spend at the villa ensures quiet seclusion, there is plenty to do in the nearby environment. Falmouth Harbour and Nelsons Dockyard in English Harbour (a National PArk) are a five-minute drive from the villa. They are visited by some of the most fabulous yachts in the world - catch them with binoculars as they majestically sail across the ocean view from Shell Villa.The constant flow of private yachts, their crew and guests, ensure a lively social scene and a plentiful supply of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars in these harbours.

For those who are athletic, more adventurous and energetic, there are some spectacular walks along the coast to totally deserted beaches, and wonderful views from some of the historic ruins around English Harbour and Shirley Heights. There are also tennis and squash courts well as horse-riding, scuba-diving and sailing.

Superb villa in a tranquil location

We've been to Antigua quite a few times in recent years and stayed in all types of accommodation but often in rented villas. No villa is perfect but Shell Villa comes close. Located on the shore line facing south on Turtle Bay in a tranquil part of the Falmouth Bay Area ensures a relaxing and idyllic Caribbean style stay. The views of the races d... Read More

Wonderful week in Shell Villa and Antigua

We returned on 6/8/13 after a great stay at Shell Villa and enjoying many of Antigua's offerings. I am not going to repeat all of the superlatives regarding the villa, its outdoor amenities and its location that were shared by other reviewers, as we found them all to be true. As owners of a VRBO rental ourselves, I think it may be helpful to focus... Read More

Great villa in a beautiful spot!

Everything described accurately from the fantastic views down to the chef's kitchen. We're a family of 5, with 3 young children and were blown away by the location and the island of Antigua. The property is perfect for those looking for seclusion and a bit of peace and quiet and is well looked after and maintained by Helen and the team. Daphne w... Read More

Beautiful and Private

My wife and I spent 9 days at Shell Villa. The privacy was awesome and the house well kept. We have been to a number of places in the Caribbean and Shell Villa is one of the best we have experienced (and the people of Antigua are some of the friendliest). Helen and Kevin (the property managers) did a great job of keeping up on things and Valentino... Read More

Shell Villa as a wedding venue

During August 2014 my then Fiancée and I stayed at Shell Villa for two weeks during which time we were married at the villa itself. From the time of our arrival at the airport, being greeted by our driver and guide, to the very last day when our wonderful housekeeper helped us with our luggage, nothing was too much trouble for any member of the Sh...
