Architect designed Lime Hill was built in traditional style in 2002, and has four air conditioned double bedrooms, each with truly stunning views, an infinity swimming pool, and is surrounded by a secluded tropical garden, just a few minutes stroll down the hill to the beach.
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 world wide, 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 a gently sloping white powder beach, calm clear warm water, bordered by palm trees, as shown in our photographs.
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 excellent 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.
Car hire is strongly recommended as there are so many interesting and unique places to visit. Antigua roads are not of the best, and the Lime Hill driveway is quite steep, and slippery when wet, so you may like to consider a 4x4, very common throughout the Island. If you rent from Titi, who knows Galleon well, firstname.lastname@example.org he will collect and deliver you from and to the airport free of charge.
