Dieppe Bay House is a beautiful sea front villa set in an acre of tropical gardens in an off the beaten track location in the south of Antigua.

Why Melanie St John chose Falmouth

As a family we fell in love with the Caribbean back in 1999. After several happy holidays in Barbados, a friend recommended Antigua and we were hooked. We first saw Dieppe Bay House in 2003 - an unfinished new build sitting in a muddy garden with few plants and no pool. Despite all the downsides, we knew we could make it the home of our dreams and set to. The early years were tricky as we got to know which local builders to trust and what would work with the climate in the house and garden. Almost ten years on, we have a house and garden that we are very proud of and the perfect base for many happy holidays over the year. We would love to share it with you.

What makes this villa unique

When we arrive from cold England - particularly in December, the first thing we do is head into the garden and onto the beach. The beautiful boats - from super yachts to small dinghies sailing by; the hungry pelicans dive bombing for their latest meal; the lap of the waves; the chatter of the fishermen; and occasionally the glimpse of a turtle. And then the next morning - dawn over Falmouth Harbour is stunning with the call of the barbary ducks in the background. Lastly the smell ... described by a journalist from The Times newspaper as 'the air smells like coconut; like moss; like wet brown sugar; like rum'

A fantastic first visit to Antigua

  • 5 of 5

Dieppe Bay House is ideally situated in a quiet area right on the waterfront. The house is extremely comfortable and the staff are delightful. It's location and comfort make it the ideal place for either a quiet, private holiday or a luxurious base for the more intrepid holiday maker - Nelson's Dockyard and English Harbour are a short drive away. I would love to go back and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dieppe Bay House as a group of 8 cricket supporters. We couldn't have picked a more suitable and tranquil property.

It made the ideal base to explore the island, watch the cricket and enjoy the hospitality of this beautiful island.

The property manager was there to greet us and take us through the amenities and we were superbly looked after during the week by Pauline who was so helpful.

The property was very accurately described, immaculately clean and had a welcoming mixture of holiday rental and family home.

The booking process was very easy and the owner answered all of our pre-visit questions.

We would recommend this property without hesitation and would certainly go back.

Tranquil, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a peaceful beach side location, away from the crowds, yet close enough to pop into town for a delicious dinner, comfortable beds, good entertaining space, excellent Wifi, a kitchen any chef will be happy with then look no further than Dieppe Bay House.

Highly Recommended Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a large party of 12 but everyone loved this family villa which is spacious, secure and beautifully decorated with plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing.

A great pool surrounded by gardens full of exotic plants.

Everything worked perfectly and is clearly well managed and kept spotlessly clean by the charming maid.

Highly recommended.

Superb time had by the Antigua 11

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dieppe Bay House for a week and enjoyed every minute of our holiday. We were three families travelling together for the first time and the success of the holiday was mostly due to the space, location and wonderful ambience of the family home. Pauline was lovely and took great care of us and ensured that we were content and comfortable during our visit.

We would highly recommend a stay here - my only recommendation would be - go for as long as you can - a week was just not long enough in this fabulous location.

Dieppe Bay House surpassed all of our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The house was spectacular and the property grounds unbelievable. The outdoor covered veranda was an ideal family special place. The ocean was steps away and some of the best snorkeling on the island was at our foot steps, who could ask for more. Our housekeepers Melissa for our first 2 weeks and Pauline on the final week looked after us like family.

The owner provided detailed instructions for our arrival and we were greeted by the property manager who further guided us on the property and house arrangement, all in all a great experience.

I would not hesitate to recommend this home away from home to anyone looking for a relaxing time in Paradise, we intend to return , hopefully in the near future.
