“Beautiful villa, wonderful hosts”
Reviewed January 14, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a great stay at the Carib this January. The pool is fantastic, the view beautiful and the facilities in the villa great.

We enjoyed having our food cooked for us on our first night as a treat, but otherwise cooked ourselves in the kitchen, dining outside.

Our hosts Jonny and Lou were also very accommodating, with lots of insider tips on beaches to visit, restaurants to eat at. They also recommended a brilliant dune-buggy experience.

We were lucky to have Jonty available for your stay, though we can always find someone who would suit the group. I am sorry we couldn't get you your fresh fish, the restaurants were too busy snaffling whatever the fishermen bought in, at least you got to enjoy it at Sun Ra and Abracadabra's! Look forward to seeing you back on island again, Lou & Jonny

“The amazing Carib House”
Reviewed January 13, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

First time I've been back to the Carib House in some years but it retains every bit of its attraction and charm. A group of 10 of us and we could not have had a more perfect week - we spent a lot of time at the brilliantly located Carib House but equally made a lot of excursions and ate out a lot. Jonny and Lou looked after every single detail and made sure everything was perfect and that we could just completely relax.
We spent a lot of time with Jonny and Lou as they are such great company but equally they are happy to leave you to enjoy the house and discreetly provide anything you might need.
I couldn't recommend the Carib House more highly - a beautiful house in a perfect setting.

“Unplug and decompress in laid back comfort.”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed here for a week with extended family. We’ve been to Antigua before but this was our first time staying in a villa. We love the island and this house is the perfect location to enjoy English Harbour area – we think is the best part of the island. Lou is a fantastic host – friendly, relaxed and extremely helpful in locating everything from a boat tour, to restaurants to fresh fish for dinner. The house has a lovely open plan design with super views of the sea from the pool area. Great kitchen and dining facilities also.

“I loved everything about carib house especially the beautiful woodwork”
Reviewed April 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2013

A really well designed & well thought out house providing a cool environment during the hot days and a superb in door out door living space. The pool was a real out door feature which was great to lounge in the shallow paddle area.
We had two weeks at carib house and really unwound and enjoyed a most welcome break, this was helped by being left alone but also being discretely looked after by a house keeper.
Jonny & Louise were really helpful sorting out transport & transfers pick up's etc and stocking the fridge with some simple first day needs. We've recommended friends and are more than happy to recommend on this website.

The woodwork is one of the features of our villa, and glad you could spot that it was done by a master craftsman. Several pieces in the villa stand out, such as the beautiful hand carved breakfast island, the chaise longue in the master bedroom and the desk in the 5th bedroom. A place to kick off your shoes and feel the natural timbers and limestone under your toes before they hit the pool! Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed your lime

“A piece of paradise”
Reviewed March 27, 2015 for a stay in May 2013

Everything about staying at the Carib House is quite simply the best. I had visited in 2000 when the villa was new and was blown away. The cleverness of the design, the high quality of finishings & furnishings, the views, the weather, the island - everything was amazing. And that was back then ....
So when I revisited in 2013 what did I find? That it was even better! How could that be? The gardens had grown and added a tropical lush backdrop to this beautiful house. Everything inside and outside was indulgent, classy and provided a totally relaxing space. The hammocks that swung from the front deck were so inviting, especially after Lou and Jonny organised a masseuse to call by and indulge me. I enjoyed day after day lounging by the pool - that even includes it's own island - followed by cooling drinks in the adjoining Gazebo.
When I felt like some activity, the walks around the area provided an endless choice of scenery and experiences. When I felt like eating, I entered a cooking space so well designed that I felt like a professional chef. Friends can sit on the other side of the wooden island bar whilst you prepare a feast using excellent quality cooking equipment.
I stayed in both the Garden apartment and the Cottage. The Garden apartment is downstairs and is totally private with it's own courtyard and entrance. I was entranced one day when a conch shell started to move across the floor magically. I later found out that a soldier crab had selected this as a temporary home. Staying in the Cottage which is situated above the house it like finding yourself in paradise. The enormous bed is draped overhead with white muslin, the bathroom shower is huge and the views are spectacular.
There is plenty to do in Antigua. Every night you can enjoy a different bar and restaurant. My favourite is the Tapas lunch at Sheer Rocks. There are amazing beaches - you can visit a different one each day - if you can drag yourself away from the Carib House. My favourite is Rendevous.
If you are considering a holiday here, do not hesitate to book it. It will be one of the best things you will ever do.

“Wonderful holiday at the Carib House in Antigua.”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in December 2013

I went to the Carib House for ten days over Christmas 2013 with nine members of my family to celebrate my 60th birthday. The house and the holiday was everything that we could have expected. The Carib House is very comfortable, in a very good position and has a lovely tropical garden. The owners and a friend had found a cook for us who was quite exceptional. Antigua is a great island to visit. There are beautiful beaches within easy reach of the Carib House and we were also near English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard. An evening visit to nearby Shirley Heights is essential because there is a very good steel band, great food and views of the neighbouring islands.

Lou and Jonny Tubbs were very welcoming hosts and we could not have had a better ten days. We hope to go back before long.
