On the upper floor, the fully equipped kitchen, with Miele dishwasher, fridge/freezer/icemaker and water purifier leads into the spacious lounge/dining room, which features large glass wide sliding patio doors the width of the room on opposite sides, to keep the whole room cool, assisted by paddle fans, enabling tropical outdoor/indoor living, without the need for air conditioning. There is an eclectic selection of books, large flatscreen satellite TV with DVD player, CD player and radio. WiFi using HotHotHot spot, costs about $50 a week. The rear patio doors open onto the walled stonework terrace giving privacy and seclusion.
The lounge leads on to the master bedroom, with super king four poster bed fitted with full mosquito netting, large ensuite bathroom with full size bath/shower, double basins and outside tropical shower. A second bedroom with king size four poster double bed and ensuite bathroom with shower is also on this floor. Both bedrooms have their own balconies overlooking gorgeous Freeman's Bay.
All four bedrooms have fitted mosquito nets and individual air conditioning, which is not necessary in the lounge area, as the house was designed to take advantage of the trade breezes.
Breakfast with the humming birds on the secluded rear terrace, or downstairs by the pool.
On the lower floor the double Caribbean style over-arch staircase leads down to the pool area, off which are the two other bedrooms, one of which has a dividable super-king bed and adjacent bathroom with shower. Bedroom four has a super king four poster double bed and ensuite shower and toilet. Both downstairs bedrooms have French doors giving direct access to the pool area, which has dining furniture for up to 8 people. An infants crib/cot and two small sofa beds suitable for children are also available. Lime Hill has mosquito screening throughout, and fitted netting on all the four beds.

The villa is conveniently situated high on the rim of gated 20 acre Galleon Beach Club, Freeman's Bay, very close to historic Nelson's Dockyard, arguably the best location on the Island, being featured on almost every Antigua brochure, which usually shows a panoramic view of the whole Galleon area taken from Shirley Heights. Freeman's Bay is a beautiful quintessentially Caribbean seaside scenario, with gently sloping white powder beach, calm clear warm water and bordered by palm trees.
The swimming pool overlooks Galleon and gives a stunning vista of the Bay, usually dotted with sailing boats of all sizes, lots of interest.
On-site seasonal amenities include Calbash beachside restaurant, reception, complimentary day ferry to the Dockyard and nearby the little hamlet of Falmouth, which has a small selection of shops and a well stocked mini-market. For your Big Shop, there are several large modern supermarkets near St Johns, about 30 minutes drive away.
One of the most appealing aspects of Galleon is that it is within easy drive of a wide range of restaurants in all price brackets, and various sporting activities such as tennis, scuba, snorkelling, sailing, with golf about 40 minutes drive away. Several very interesting and sometimes challenging walks are on your doorstep. Do as much or as little as suits you. If you are interested in history, Nelson's Dockyard and the surrounding area will entrance you...
There are furnished patios front and back, and a gas barbecue, giving a choice of three dining options, inside and out....Read more
