Pool
Guests often search for this popular amenity
This magical house has views over its own acre of topical garden to the entrance to English Harbour. The open plan living space and veranda lead to the large 'floating' steps that lead to the pool area and pool house with BBQ. The pool is totally child friendly with a gate for safety. The pool is architect designed and is as lovely to swim in as it is to gaze over. All of this area can be lit up at night and is perfect for al fresco dining. With fast fiber optic broadband throughout.

The space
The house boasts a large kitchen and open plan living space which opens onto a verandah and the wide open 'floating' steps to the architect designed pool and pool house. The kitchen has a dishwasher, a large fridge freezer and a five burner gas hob and large gas oven. There is also a BBQ in the pool house. The kitchen is a modern, a very good size and really well equipped.

There is a TV on the wall in the open plan living room/kitchen. There is Apple TV to watch but also cables so that you can connect your lap top to the TV and watch anything you want. There is high speed fiber optic broadband allowing you to stream anything you wish from the internet.

The master bedroom suite sits on the main, ground floor. The bedroom itself is very large with windows to the east and north allowing the breeze to blow through. All the windows are netted for insects allowing you to keep them wide open all the time. The bed in the master bedroom measures 7' x 7'. There is also an enormous dressing room with ample hanging space and shelves for two people, if not the entire family! There is also a separate toilet here with an amazing view across the valley to Proctor's Point. Also a basin and cabinet with shelving and drawers. The shower room is something else. Open to the sky and enormous, you can see the stars at night time or the bougainvillea during the day time. It is truly wonderful. There is also space here to hang your wet swimming gear.

The second bedroom boasts a double bed as well as two singles and the option of a cot. Again, all the windows are screened which allows the breeze to blow through but not the insects. The bathroom has a basin and loo that is separate to the master suite but has its own door to the large open air shower which is shared with the master bedroom.

The garden at Farside is magnificent. There is over an acre of flowering trees and shrubs with paths that meander through it. Standing on the verandah you are at tree top height and you look through the palms and foliage to the view beyond. It is really breathtaking. The pool, designed by our architect son, enjoys far reaching views to the harbour. The design is such that there are wide steps to enter it which are ideal for children to go in and out and play safely but also a long length which is ideal for fitness swimming. The far end with the view has an infinity edge. The pool house has a dining table that seats 10 and sun loungers and an outdoor sofa. It is really the place to unwind and relax with plenty of shade for the hot afternoons. For the evenings the pool and pool deck has plenty of lighting so you can eat al fresco and use the BBQ.

Under the master bedroom suite there is an 'outside' laundry area with large top loader washing machine and many washing lines to hang your clothes. Some of these are under cover and some are outside. Drying never takes long in this climate!

The house enjoys wonderful breezes for most of the year but in particular through the winter months. There are fans for when the breeze drops but we find that it is rare to need the fans except in the height of the summer. The house faces east which is the direction of the trade winds that blow regularly for most of the year and Turtle Bay is renowned for being one of the coolest places on the island. We think we are unusual in that we always keep a blanket on our bed during the winter months! This is unusual in Antigua but the house really keeps cool with the constant breeze.
The house is very private and is not overlooked by any neighbours although there are neighbours either side behind the tress and lush foliage. So you have the best of both worlds. The road to the house can get very pot holed as the season progresses. It is usually made up by the local community in November and drives well for the first few months but falls apart with the summer rains.

This house is also available with three downstairs bedrooms at a higher price. It works really well as an apartment on one level and can be enjoyed by one couple or a couple with up to 3 or 4 children or even two couples with two children.

Where you’ll be

English Harbour, Saint Paul, Antigua & Barbuda

Turtle Bay is quiet with no through roads. The sound of the sea is always there and at night the sounds of the tree frogs and the crickets is almost deafening. However, we are only a 10 minute drive from the buzz of English Harbour with its bars, restaurants, beaches and night life.
