About this villa

Shell Villa is tucked away inside Turtle Bay on the south coast of Antigua, just west of Falmouth Harbour. Enjoy utter privacy and quiet as you sit on its large 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 piece 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. The property has four double bedrooms, all with air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. Beds can be made up as king size or full size twins as preferred. The fifth bedroom has full size bunk beds. Shell Villa has a large kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a spacious living/dining area with high speed internet. Shell Cottage has a living room with porch and a small kichenette with half bath.

The Villa is fully equipped and furnished and has weekly garden, pool and maid service. The gardens and plunge pool (with sun deck and barbecue) are planted with gorgeous bougainvillaea, hibiscus, and palms.

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.

From 2022 (when it is completed) Shell Cottage will also be available to rent with Shell Villa – it is not rented separately. It has two bedrooms on the second floor with outstanding views across Turtle Bay to Rendezvous. The master bedroom has ensuite access and the second bedroom is a bunk room with two full size single bunks and shared access to the bathroom. On the ground floor there is an airy living room with open porch and sun deck as well as WC and kitchenette with fridge/freezer, microwave and toaster. It is a hop and a skip to the pool and sun deck of the main villa which has a full size well-equipped, chef grade kitchen and dining capacity for 10. The use of Shell Cottage will not be available to parties of six or less without the payment of $150 per night supplement (contact the owners direct)

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 UNESCO World Heritage site) 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 horseriding, scuba-diving and sailing.

    Amazing sunsets and views. Nothing better than waking up in the morning in this gorgeous spot and opening all the windows and shutters to listen to the waves roll in on the beach.

    Paradise by the Sea

    Shell Villa is everything the listing description claims, but better! It’s actually better than the photos. Photographs can’t capture the sound of the waves or the smell of the sea or the warmth of the sun or the cool of the breeze or way those things combine to soothe your soul and take away your cares. You can probably tell we loved this place, so I’ll get to the point: if you’re thinking about it, don’t hesitate, just book it. You won’t be sorry. This may be the most comfortable, well equipped VRBO we’ve stayed in yet. The three en-suite bedrooms are private and air conditioned. The beds were comfortable and well made up. Solar hot water heat is supplemented with an electric heater, but we only used it once. The pool was a perfect temp for cooling off without being chilly and we used it frequently. An outdoor shower on the deck is a nice touch. We spent a lot of time on the deck sunning and watching the fab yachts passing by. The views of Montserrat, Rendezvous beach and the surrounding mountains never get old. The kitchen is fully gourmet equipped and is supplemented with an excellent outdoor grill to avoid heating up the living space. There’s a variety of outdoor seating to accommodate everyone (we loved the big hammock!) Shelly the cat was a wonderful companion. The only caveat I would mention to others is the road back to the villa is rough and largely unpacked. I’d strongly recommend a sturdy vehicle with decent ground clearance and good tires if you’re renting. We saw two taxis get flats out front, but we managed the whole week without issues (including a foray over the mountain to Rendezvous!) in our rented 4x4. So that’s it. Book Shell Villa and rent a SUV and get ready to make memories! Thanks to Jenny & David for the use of their home, Claire & Nathan for the warm welcome and orientation, Valentino & Marley for the expert transport, Juicy for the local flavor & advice, and Emma for seeing us off. You were all great!

    We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to experience this wonderful Villa, particularly it’s breathtakingly beautiful and private location on the Caribbean sea with un-interrupted 180 degrees south/south west facing views of Montserrat and gorgeous sunsets (practically a ‘green flash’ every night!). With COVID upending the world in so many ways, our family of four had a wonderful time relaxing together while still participating in virtual university classes and running our business (wifi is such a blessing!). The Villa has a nice open floor plan with 3 en-suite bedrooms and several French doors and shutters that opens up to a sizable wrap around deck which accommodates the plunge pool, BBQ, dining table and sun loungers, all in good working order. While at home we kept the doors and windows wide open filling the house with the sound of waves and the warm soothing breeze. In fact, looking out the large windows facing the sea with the waves rolling in it at times felt like being on a yacht. The kitchen is super well stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils one could ever need, a dishwasher, large fridge freezer and a brand new cooker. There’s also a washing machine in the Master bathroom. The Villa is five minutes drive from Falmouth Harbour with many good and/or fun restaurants. Some of our favorites include the Pillars, Boom, 5 Senses, Catherine’s, Cloggy’s and Le Brasserie. On the topic of food, we recommend going to the Epicurean in Jolly Harbour (30 minutes drive) for the ‘big’ shop (they have lots of Waitrose products because of the many British expats that live in the area), then to top up as needed locally, either at Covent Garden or the supermarket across from Antigua Yacht Club in Falmouth. We bought most of our fresh produce from the street vendor by the gas station in Falmouth. A hire car is a ‘must’ in order to get to and from the Villa and because the roads are poor a Jeep is the way to go. Titi’s in Falmouth Harbour is as good and fair as it gets. In fact, Titi’s even delivered the Jeep to the Villa. As mentioned by previous guests, we’d like to recognize Nathan and Clare for their thoughtful and immediate attention. And a special call out to the Freestone’s for sharing their treasure with us. Such a very nice touch to have the fridge stocked with a few goodies and essentials on arrival, and to be met by Valentino at the airport including transfer to the Villa. Thank you! We highly recommend this Villa.

    Privacy and comfort

    We loved the privacy, beautiful views, and comfort of Shell Villa. The kitchen was well stocked (for those who like to cook) and we would definitely like to come back!
