About this villa

* * * WE DO NOT CHARGE FOR 16 YEAR OLDS AND YOUNGER *** (all year except over Christmas and New Year)


The house covers over 7,000 sq ft of both indoor and outdoor living space. The immense and well kept garden, which runs all the way down to the sea, flourishes with an array of tropical plants and palm trees. Shady pergolas on both the east and west sides of the villa provide the perfect spot for some afternoon reading away from the intense sun. Sunrise and Sunset views are a bonus of this east/west facing home.



As you enter this home you will be taken aback by the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, the glassy bay, the nearby uninhabited smaller islands, reefs and the unspoilt greenery in the distance. Designed to harmonise with the environment, the villa allows you to become one with nature as a large veranda that extends the length of the house connects all the rooms and offers the experience of indoor/outdoor living every step of the way. On the extended veranda is a court yard style garden, separate seating areas and the infinity edged pool.





Bedrooms 1 & 2: All bedrooms are en-suite and have ceiling fans, although the area enjoys constant breeze. The first and second bedrooms are on the right of the main entrance to the villa. Bedroom 1 is furnished with a four poster queen size bed, night stands with lamps and a spacious walk-in closet. The bathroom is furnished with top quality bathroom fittings and an open air shower. The second en-suite bedroom is located close to the first but with ample space between rooms for privacy. These two rooms also have between them a linen closet / storage room. The second bedroom is fitted with a king size metal frame bed, night stands with lamps and a spacious walk-in closet. The bathroom is identical to that of bedroom one.



All of the four en-suite bathrooms are identical in character; they are all very large with open roof showers covered by a mesh.



Dining and living area: Returning to the main entrance of the villa, a stroll under the covered veranda leads to the kitchen, dining and living area whilst walking past the court yard style garden and pool. Although the kitchen and the dining and living areas are separate, there is a feel of uniformity between the rooms similar to that of an open floor concept.



The living room is tastefully furnished with imported Italian sofas, side tables with lamps, a coffee table, television cabinet and other elite tasteful pieces. The dining area is furnished with a hand crafted rustic wooden dining table with two rustic wooden benches and traditional chairs placed at the short ends. The living and indoor dining area have custom made folding wooden doors to allow the house to be kept fully open on both sides or closed for privacy as one chooses.



The kitchen is just few steps away; it is fitted with professional grade stainless steel appliances including a double door refrigerator, five burner stove, convectional oven, microwave oven and dish washer and other small appliances. The cabinets are Italian and are pure white in colour and topped with marble which was carefully chosen to enhance the space. A large island unit with butchers block adorns the kitchen and includes stools for enjoying casual breakfast or coffee. Adjoining the kitchen is a large pantry.



Bedrooms 3 & 4: Further down the large veranda from the living area is the master suite which is accessible from both sides of the Villa.

This room has a king size four poster bed, night stands with lamps, lounge chair, walk-in closet and other delicate touches. The bathroom compliments this room as it is decorated with white vanity, walk-in open roof shower and other elegant touches.


A little further is the last bedroom; this room is perfect for children or two sharing.

    Awesome experience. Mrs Mossy was spot on, friendly, helpful and great to meet.

    Mossy met us at the airport, made sure we got set up with a rental, guided us to the grocery and then to the house. The house was amazing and everything is was said to be. Mr. Nick was very helpful and patient with all my questions prior to arriving. Both Mr Nick and Mrs Mossy are both top notch and I would highly recommend this house to anyone. It is a bit away from some places, but just a 30 to 40 minute ride and you are there (keeping in mind, you are on an island so everything is within a 30 to 40 minute ride).

    Wonderful holiday stay

    We had an amazing trip and loved staying in this Home. We were welcomed to Antigua so warmly and had a wonderful trip. We were met at the airport which made everything so much easier for our family to navigate our way to the house. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed to cook the local lobsters and fish (even a grill). We had a few minor issues during our stay and they were resolved so quickly (found us life jackets, helped us contact the fisherman, etc). It was an easy drive to the beautiful beaches from the house and we loved exploring the island. The pool was beautiful and larger than expected. Wonderful ocean breezes to keep us nice and cool and the bugs stayed away. Overall a wonderful trip in a beautiful home.

    Truly great relaxing time.

    The house is truly great. It’s set up high on a peninsula overlooking a bay, and takes full advantage of property, making all rooms facing the water. Great layout, with the living room, pool, and sitting areas very central and inviting. Nice walk-in closet with plenty of room for clothes, shoes, etc. Very big shower, with decent water pressure. Really nice infinity pool, we spent a good deal of time enjoying the pool and looking out onto the bay and ocean. There are nice tables outside if you prefer eating by the pool, and a great table inside in the living room. We ate outside several times, including at night. Keep in mind that you are surrounded by lots of greenery, so there are some bugs and moths around, this is normal for the island. Eat inside if they bother you, and keep the living doors closed after dusk once you turn on the lights. The kitchen is functional, big refrigerator, nice range, dishwasher, etc. Good supply of plates, glasses, all sorts of kitchen utensils if you plan to cook at home. We did cook at home most of times, which helps you keep costs down. There are a few larger supermarkets close to the airport – we went shopping once we arrived at the island and this lasted us for the entire week, we did have to make one or two runs for items we forgot. We recommend the Gourmet Basket close to the airport. There is a very small store near the house next to the gas station, which has the very basic essentials, in case you need beer or water, etc. Also, Mossy has a contact if you want lobster, and we did order two great lobsters which came already boiled and ready for a quick grill. Outstanding price for the lobsters in my opinion. A few pluses with the house: There is satellite TV which has a good variety of channels, mostly American to keep you entertained before bed. There is also WIFI which works nice, the speed is enough for web browsing, email, and maybe very light streaming, but don’t expect to have multiple people to be streaming videos on it. Each room has an electric mosquito trap, which seems to work great, there really aren’t that many mosquito to worry about. Keep the ceiling fans on also to keep the odd mosquito away. Mossy has a cell phone that she makes available to you, in case you need to contact her or any local number.

    Our family loved this home - you will too!

    The Long House is lovely, extremely roomy and very comfortable. The view is absolutely stunning! We are a family of 4 but larger groups would certainly be more than comfortable. Fabulous infinity pool is quite large - much bigger than what we have encountered at other island homes. It was great to be met at the airport by a contact person. We followed her to the home (after a quick grocery stop) which was very helpful as this would have been a tricky location to find on our own. A bit of a drive to restaurants but there is a very friendly taxi driver (Walter) nearby that we used a few times. Would definitely return!

    What a lovely place to stay

    The villa is absolutely gorgeous. From its stunning location to the outdoor showers, it has all been superbly thought through. Nothing is too much trouble - all you have to do is ask. Both Mossy and Mercedes will go the extra mile to make you stay the best it can be. Well done both of you! Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Our Stay at the Long House

    This is the first time we have used a VRBO and Nick and Mossy set the bar very high. We had a spectacular 9 day visit to the Long House. Everything about our experience was wonderful. Being the first time using VRBO I had a few questions for Nick and he was always the most responsive. Once we arrived Mossy met us at the Airport, escorted us to the rental car counter, led us to a grocery store and then onto the house. Our family of 5 stay stayed here and everyone loved it. The house and pool were awesome. We explored all over Antigua during the mornings and then enjoyed the tranquility of the house in the afternoon and evenings. It was a perfect vacation at a beautiful home.

    Great getaway!

    Check in was a breeze. Mossy met us at airport. Then took us to grocery store and even made a stop to get some mango at a smaller store. The house was great. Amazing views all day long. Pool was amazing. Much bigger than the pictures and deep. The location offer a lot of privacy. We only used half the house. This would be perfect for larger or multiple families.

    Outstanding

    Exactly as pictured, beautiful, comfortable, amazing views. Peaceful location. It's really nice to be able to be so spread out (Hence The Long House name) to have privacy and share common areas with our friends sharing the week with us. Mossy gave us a warm welcome, making us feel relaxed as soon as we arrived. For groceries, we preferred Epicurian near St John for a big initial stocking up, but there are one or two local stores carrying necessities and more.
