English Harbour Vacation Rentals

Located on the southern part of Antigua, English Harbor is named after the close by harbor where the Royal Navy once held a base. This harbor is now known as Nelson’s Dockyard, and contains preserved buildings and artifacts for the colonial period. The other harbor nearby is Falmouth Harbor. Because they are both deep water, they attract many boaters including yachters.

English Harbor has a tropical climate, with warm, mostly dry weather year round. Tropical storms are in season from June till November. Temperatures are generally in the mid 20’s or higher (degrees Celsius), and the rainiest month is November.

Staying in a vacation home rental means you can take your holiday without giving up the comfort and privacy you enjoy back home. Every day you can wake up in your custom picked accommodation to a view of the Caribbean, and nearby islands. While visiting Antigua check out some of the activities around such as Shirley Heights, nature walks and hikes, sailing, boating, snorkeling & scuba diving, windsurfing, and eco tours . There are also many day adventures like ATVing, water safaris, and zip line canopy tours.

Vacationers can find holiday lodging directly from owners in the form of villas, home, apartment and condo rentals in English Harbor, Antigua. This Caribbean town is full of different types of vacation rentals to suit anyone’s needs. From simple homes, to luxury villas, there is accommodation for every preference.

From the first contact with the owner the whole process of booking was so straightforward - the owner was extremely helpful answering all my questions on a range of topics. I was especially grateful to the owner for phoning me in the week before our trip to let me know new furniture had been put in the villa and to reassure me regarding security of the property and the resort. The villa was spotless and well cared for with everything you would need in a home from home. An especially nice touch was finding the fridge stocked with a few basic necessities- bread, butter, milk, water, beer. The manager popped by to make sure we had everything we needed. The area around the villa is well kept and a lovely 5 minute walk to the nearest (small and quiet beach). I would certainly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing, 'do as you please' holiday - at the end of the day it's what you make of it!"
