“Perfect family house with wonderful hosts”
Reviewed March 20, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We spent a winderful two weeks at The Carib House. Our party was made up of three toddlers from two families and a set of grandparents and the house was perfect for everyone. Lou was extremely helpful and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed for the children. She also made sure that we got fresh fish straight from the sea and told us all the best places to go and eat on the island. There is a lovely maid who comes in every day who was brilliant with the children and kept everything clean and ship shape.

The house itself has three bedrooms in the main part with another bedroom in a small cottage above the main house and one underneath the house. It has a large open plan living area with lots of books amd games and a pool / table tennis table. There are plenty of areas to chill out meaning everyone had their own space when they needed it. The children loved the pool which has a brilliant shallow bit which they spent loads of time splashing around in. The views out to the sea are magical and we loved watching all the yachts coming and going.

Falmouth is under a ten minute drive away so you do definiteky need a car to get around and get to the shops. We loved the location however as it was close enough to be able to pop out wuickly to the local supermarket but also secluded and sheltered giving us privacy and security.

I would highly recommend The Carib House and we hooe to go back ourselves very soon.

The Carib House is the perfect holiday villa - so much space inside and out complemented with beautiful panoramic views of palm trees and turquoise sea. It has all of the amenities, games and entertainment you could possibly want, all ages covered. The whole stay was made effortless thanks to the excellent hosts, Lou and Johnny. They are always on hand to help with recommendations of deserted beaches, perfect restaurants, suggest and book activities, arrange for a cook... the whole kit and caboodle.
We can't wait to go back! Tom & Hatty

“Absolutely stunning ”
Reviewed January 15, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Our stay at The Carib House could not have been better! From the location of the property - amazing sunsets and close proximity to beautiful beaches and excellent restaurants - to the house itself which is enormous, beautifully designed and very well equipped, everything about this place is very special.

We visited as a group of ten and the house was ideal for this number, it was never cramped and we didn't run out of crockery/cutlery. Our hosts, Lou and Jonny, were able to source a chef on our first night so that would could relax straight into the holiday and her food was delicious! We made good use of the BBQ and the outdoor space, where we spent most of our time, and the terraces and pool were perfect in the heat.

Lou and Jonny were exceptional hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. Having lived on the island for over twenty years, have an encyclopaedic knowledge of restaurants, bars, beaches and activities in Antigua and are happy to make recommendations and reservations according to whenever takes your fancy. With their insider local info and connections I feel like we really got the most from our stay, including a brilliant day 4x4 buggying around the island, which is highly recommended.

Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Carib House to anyone looking for relaxing, private, authentic stay in Antigua, you'd be hard-pushed to find better!

We love the buggy tour too, as it takes you to places even we have not been to, hard to believe after almost 20 years on this island! Thank you for your kind words, look forward to seeing you back here again one day soon, Lou & Jonny

“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.
