Inside are two bedrooms, located on different floors, each with en-suite facilities; bedroom 1 has a king sized (5ft) four poster and bedroom 2 has two double (4ft6in) beds.

We do not have a microwave. All cooking and dining utensils are provided. Bedrooms and living areas have ceiling fans, (believe us you do not need air conditioning when you have tropical breezes).

Turtle View is a luxury villa located in the exclusive Peninsula Development and was designed by Andrew Goodenough, one of Antigua's premier architects. It is positioned on 0.55 acres of waterfront land, near to the village of Wilikies. The villa is perfectly located for exploring the tropical breeding grounds and visiting the many deserted beaches. This holiday home is for the discerning, who will appreciate peace, tranquility and privacy in a secure un-spoilt environment. A rental car is highly recommended.
There are some full time residents who live at the Peninsula, who have moved out to Antigua to live the Caribbean dream. Claire is one of these and is our house manager.

My husband and I have rented a dozen properties on different Caribbean islands and this is by far one of our favorites. The villa was in a quiet location. We slept comfortably. We stayed for two weeks and will definitely go back. My husband cooked the best dinners in the kitchen, which was well equipped and the best table was outside next to the pool. No reservations required. We had a list of the cruise ship schedule and if there were more than two ships in that day we stayed home. I'd say nothing on the island was more than 30 to 45 minutes away. The home suited us perfectly. We loved exploring the island during the day and staying in at night for happy hour and dinner. There was almost always a breeze going through the house so there was absolutely no need for A/C. Long Bay was less than 5 minutes away and our favorite spot was over by OJ's Beach Bar where we could get bucket of beers for the beach.
Peace and Quiet with a Breathtaking View
Spent a week in mid July 2016, had a great time, I'd recommend getting a rental car and explore the island. Pictures don't do the house justice, the view on the deck is just amazing, great breezes, great kitchen with all needed equipment. Great pool, with a great view. Everything was clean and tidy. The outlets are all American style (2 flat prongs and one pin), You don't hear the neighbors, all you hear is the birds and breeze during the day, and the frogs and breeze at night. Bathrooms are very nice with large showers with great water pressure and temperature range.
The house is suitable for children but guests should be aware that the pool is located directly next to the house and they must supervise their children at all times.
Please ask us for a copy of our house rules.

The Peninsula Antigua is located in North Sound on the Atlantic (East) coast of the Island and is protected by a chain of small uninhabited islands with white sandy beaches and coral reefs that are easily accessible by boat. It is fair to say that it is one of the most tranquil and unspoilt locations in the Caribbean.
The three headlands that make up the Peninsula are surrounded by the shallow navigable waters of Belfast Bay, a stunning harbor that forms part of an archipelago that provides an excellent breeding ground for tropical fish and turtles. Dolphins and migrating whales can occasionally be seen from the bay.
This area, which until recently could not be reached by road, is being developed sympathetically by long-time residents of Antigua in a style that reflects traditional ...
