The open plan kitchen, living room opens up to the views and poolside allowing for the ever present easterly trade winds to cool the property. The fully equipped kitchen is modern with high end stainless steel appliances and a centre island.  It has a large American style freezer, separate drinks cooler, oven, hob, microwave and dishwasher. 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). There is a downstairs, fully equipped laundry and store room.

There are inside and outside dining areas, designed to accommodate eight people. A sun deck with four loungers, overlooking crystal clear water and plenty of comfortable arm chairs to enjoy the shade.

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 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. She will greet you and is happy to advise you on places to go on the island. We can arrange for the property to be provisioned prior to your arrival and cleaning is arranged on a weekly basis. If you require a maid-service, this too can be arranged. Claire's husband Mark can also arrange for boat trips/fishing around the reef and island.

Peace and Quiet with a Breathtaking View

Left on Jul 27, 2016 for a stay in Jul 2016

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.

Location description from owner

The Antigua and Barbuda region

Antigua is located in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, roughly 17 degrees north of the equator. To the south are the islands of Montserrat and Guadaloupe, and to the north and west are Nevis, St. Kitts, St. Barts, and St. Martin. The island is about 14 miles long and 11 miles wide. It has a wonderful climate with sun shining all year round with typical winter sun in 30 degrees C, tropical breezes to cool you down and low humidity. The rainy season is between May and October but even then the showers are heavy and short and the sky soon clears to reveal another beautiful day. Because the island gets rain it is lush and tropical in many areas, particularly in the south of the island.

The island is English speaking. You will find the locals are very friendly but are not effusive; if you smile then they will too. Wilikies the local village is safe, as is English Harbour and Jolly Harbour. We have always felt very safe but employ common sense when it comes to visiting the capital St Johns at night.

If you like the wild outdoors there are a wide range of excursions on the island. Claire and Mark can take you on a boat trip directly from the Peninsula. For sailing give Captain Nash a call, this is a true sailing cruise where you get to be the crew for a day of sail only cruising to some beautiful spots. Learn about trimming the main and tightening up the jib sheet on your way to a beautiful lunch. Closer to home - The Eco Kayak adventure through the mangroves around the Peninsula. Or if you are true adventurer go zip wiring on the Rainforest Canopy Tour.

People tend to eat out early, go to bed early and rise very early. The mornings are stunning, you may wake to the sound of the Pelicans fishing in the water outside the house, they make a huge plop as they dive. Watch out for turtles, you will see them fleetingly come to the surface, pop their heads out, and dive back down again. There is set of field glasses for you to use.

Willikies

The Peninsula Antigua, is twenty minutes drive from the new international airport. It 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 West Indian architecture. There are a small number of quality homes on the waterfront that take advantage of the cooling breezes and breathtaking views. The residents of the Peninsula appreciate peace and tranquility and the use of jet skis and high speed power boats are not permitted. We have also agreed to refrain from playing loud music.

Wilikies, the local village is rustic and there are several small but basic local stores where you can buy bread, milk and basic provisions.

Staying at the Peninsula enables you to taste the night life but retreat to peace and tranquility when you desire.

“A fantastic place just what we needed”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2016

We stayed here as a couple in June 2016. This is the off season on the Island and it is very quiet and a lot of the restaurants are closed, but this is exactly what we needed as you get to experience the island with great weather, friendly locals and it is quiet, with deserted beaches. Turtle view exceeded expectations and the pictures do not give it justice. True privacy and isolation ( there are neighbours, but you cannot see them feels like you have the island to yourself). Other than one lunch out at Nelsons Dockyard, we catered for ourselves. The kitchen is so well equipped and the Epicurean Supermarket in St John is huge, and has a great choice, the meat is very good quality and value. Had some of the best BBQs. The villa was clean and very comfortable and the pool is amazing. Even though it was 30+ everyday the breeze means you do not need air con and you feel so much healthier for it too. I cannot recommend it more and would love to come back for true relaxation, luxury and something truly special. The place is a huge Villa , considering only two bedrooms and even though there was only two of us the space inside and out would still be comfortable for 4-6 or a family.

“Pure relaxation and sunshine”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2015

This is an amazing and perfect home for relaxation and peace. Claire met us at the property, she was really great and helpful. The interior and exterior are great and the house has everything you would need for a wonderful holiday. The pool is perfect and the terrace catches the morning and afternoon sun. We hired a car from Vernon's Taxi and Car Rental - the service was excellent and Vernon is a really pleasant and great person. Antigua is definitely not a place to miss if you love beaches and sunshine - The island is fairly easy to get around once you get your bearings and a beach at most turns. I would definitely stay at Turtle View again.

“Delightful villa with a tranquil view”

Reviewed 26 Jan 2014

Turtle View was an amazing place to stay. We loved the house, well equipped, clean and comfortable. It was homely with out being cluttered and also had a well brilliant kitchen. We could have sat on the deck all day just enjoying the view. However we didn't as there was an island that needed exploring. A car is most definitely needed. The house manager was friendly, helpful and very informed about the island. We hope to return to Turtle View soon.

“Excellent!!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2013

This property is absolutely amazing. My friends and I went to medical school on the island, came back for a vacation. Turtle View property has stunning views, very peaceful, and def. get your moneys worth! Only slight set back was trying to email back and forth to make the booking, however the owners are so understanding and friendly. This place is amazing and totally worth it for a couple, family with kids, or even friends!! We can't wait to go back.

“A truly wonderful Getaway”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2012

"On arrival we were delighted with the tranquility of the area. The building was clean & welcoming. The house was spacious and comfortable and provided us with everything we needed during our 2 week stay. The pool was probably the cleanest pool we have ever experienced as it was pumping & filtering continuously. The view from the terrace was heaven! Blue skies, Pelicans dive-bombing for fish into the glass-like calm waters, humming birds raiding the flowers & small but brightly coloured lizards going about their business. We were also well situated for "Stingray City" where we had the most wonderful day swimming with gentle Stingrays. A day we will never forget! We would recommend this house and will most definitely consider returning ourselves in the future. A truly wonderful Getaway".

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed the peace of the Peninsula. We know its so hard to convey it to our guests but once they arrive they see just how beautiful it is. Peace is difficult to describe. Thank you so much for your review.

“The best vacation rental you will find if you want solitude and views”
