Description from owner
Imagine yourself in the early evening, sundowner in hand as you relax and watch the fireball sun kissing the horizon between the islands of Redonda and Nevis. The sky is cloudless. Is this a night for the fabled green flash?
Silk Cotton Villa enjoys a fabulous location and offers stunning panoramic views over Dickenson Bay, Runaway Bay and the Caribbean Sea.
This very impressive property offers ideal accommodation for a family holiday (Sleeping 8) . Built on two levels, the upper level offers a fully equipped kitchen, lounge, dining room and two bedrooms and a house bathroom and the lower level 2 further large bedrooms, one en-suite, a laundry room and a cool seating area, ideal of those wishing to enjoy a little peace and quiet.
Both levels have large covered galleries on which you are able to enjoy “al fresco dining,” or an evening cocktail to watch the spectacular sunset.
Outside there is a large 5ft deep infinity edge pool which has open decking on three sides to enjoy the sunshine. A gazebo offers shade by which to enjoy a meal or a refreshing drink or a quiet place to sit to read or to merely enjoy the view
Silk Cotton House benefits from the cooling sea breezes and also offers ceiling fans in every room.
It offers privacy, peace and tranquility for your total relaxation, yet is less than 5 minutes away from Dickenson Bay one of Antigua's most famous beaches offering dingy sailing, jet skis, snorkeling and horseback riding by day and for night owls bars restaurants and even a nightclub.
The nearby “Village Walk” offers Cafes, shops, banking facilities and adjacent to it is an 8-screen multiplex cinema showing the latest films.

“Perfect accommodation with spectacular views”
The villa is perched high on a hillside overlooking the west coast of the beautiful island of Antigua. Views from the veranda and swimming pool area are simply stunning, with a grandstand view of the spectacular sunset around 6:00pm every day! We were 4 independent travellers, so the 4 bedrooms and spacious interior were perfect for us. A well-equipped kitchen and plentiful supply of towels for sunbathing made our relaxing "pool" days extremely enjoyable! There is a nice restaurant called Stella's around 15 minutes walk away, but as we hired a car (which I would strongly recommend to get the best out of the island) we also drove to several other lovely restaurants only a few minutes away. The island capital of St Johns is a pleasant 45 minute stroll from the villa should you want a break from driving! We would also recommend the day trip to Montserrat from St Johns with Jenny's Travel, which was very good value, albeit a long day (not helped by the chaotic immigration procedure at St Johns)! Our fortnight at Silk Cotton House felt like 6 months, and it was a bind to pack our suitcases and leave.
Owner's reply: Hi Julian Many thanks for your kind review. Delighted that you had a good trip.
“Perfect! Ticked all the boxes and more!”
Just returned from a great week in Antigua and loved every minute. Silk Cotton House is perfect and has everything - the infinity pool, the huge deep balcony with it’s amazing views, particularly of the sunsets and the light breeze that kept us cool. The house is also very comfortable and well equipped Right from making the booking through to leaving everything was so easy. Thanks to the owners who were very thorough and so helpful, Michelle the Property Manager was also a great help and always available if we needed her and Iris at Sunny Rentals also made the car hire easy and painless! We explored Antigua and were out and about but it was always a lovely feeling to get back to the house to just relax, swim and chill. I would definitely go back - the sooner, the better!
“A wonderful infinity pool with great views over Runaway and Dickinson Bays”
We had a fantastic family holiday relaxing at this wonderfully appointed villa and exploring Antigua. The house has great facilities for a very comfortable family holiday. The infinity pool is a delight to relax in either on a 'chilled house day' or after a day out visiting Antigua's many attractions or beaches. The views from the pool and the verandas are stunning and the sunsets are a joy. A firm favourite for me was the humming birds by the pool.
“Impressive villa with stunning views”
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Silk Cotton House. The villa owner was extremely responsive from the outset and clearly has considered everything to ensure guests have a comfortable stay.The villa enjoys sensational views of the sea and amazing sunsets. We enjoyed relaxing and reading by the pool and sitting on the veranda. It is well equipped, very clean and and the beds were comfortable. Michelle, the Property Manager was very helpful and Sunny Rentals also looked us during our stay. We recommend exploring the beaches at Dickenson Bay and on the west coast. Coconut Grove was a particular favourite restaurant close by. Having 2 Supermarkets in such close proximity was a great convenience. Lizards and Bananaquits and Tree frogs are all part of the Caribbean experience too. We look forward to another holiday adventure in the not too distant future.
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for an excellent review. You are most welcome to visit Silk Cotton House any time!
“Perfect for a very chilled out holiday”
Stunning views, amazing sunset, all amenities within 5 mins car ride. Dickinson Bay very close. Villa furnished to a very high spec and well maintained including pool. A very relaxing and chilled out stay. Would definitely recommend this property.
