A very relaxing holiday
We've just returned from spending a very relaxing family Christmas break at the Gordon House. It was our first time away from home at Christmas and we were travelling with teenagers and my elderly mother and I have to say the house worked beautifully for all. Its a very spacious house with the most amazing views. Our children loved the terrace area for sunbathing, swimming and fishing and my mother was very happy relaxing in the house enjoying the views. Marilyn the housekeeper looked after us really well and couldn't do enough for us and we thoroughly enjoyed the curry she made for us on our arrival.
The only problem was the quantity of mosquito's which made life a bit difficult. I don't know wether it was just the time of year but they were pretty relentless. Marilyn was really helpful in supplying deet spray and putting up mosquito nets at night but be aware as the house is open to the elements and its virtually impossible to avoid them.
All in all all a great trip and looking forward to returning.
A Gorgeous Private House
This house has an absolutely amazing view, and it's made even better by the steps down to the private grotto to get in the bay. There's some construction going on across the bay, but we found it didn't bother us at all. Brenda was our housekeeper since Marilyn was on vacation, and she was fantastic. Junior unexpectedly brought paddle boards for us to use, which we really enjoyed. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We rented a car and are happy we did. The cost of taxis to travel every day is much more than a weeklong rental. The next time we find ourselves in Antigua we will try to stay here again!
I’m so glad you and your friends had such a wonderful time!!!!! It’s also nice to hear that you used the paddle boards. In my opinion, the bay off the seaside patio at the villa, is perfect for paddle boarding, since it’s naturally protected by the rock formations at Devils Bridge.
Let me know when you’re ready to go back!
Beautiful, unique, relaxing
Our family loved staying in this house. The veranda is a wonderful place to see and watch the cove, its birds, or folks kayaking or paddle boarding across on the other shore; the house is airy, comfortable, lovely for relaxing. We loved its garden and location as well as the snorkeling off the lower terrance where we found interesting fish and further out, lobsters (hiding from us under rocks and no threat at all!). We also enjoyed the beach just down the hill, with its warm water, shallow bottom, and two fun beach bars/ restaurants. All so easy and the locals so kind to us and gracious. We loved watching the families play in the beautiful turquoise water. The housekeeper was so very sweet to us. We had a wonderful time. It was our first time to Antigua and we loved every second.
I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! I hope you and your family will return in the future!
My favorite place ....
I stayed here twelve years ago for my honeymoon and you couldn’t have asked for a more perfect and romantic location. Now I have returned in 2018 with my daughter , my wife , and her family and again this place was perfect for a week of family fun and relaxation. As soon as we got off the plane I could feel the stresses of life lifting and as we drove towards the house and Long Bay appeared before my eyes (just a short walk from the property and probaly one of the best beaches in the world ) I could feel all the weight of life disappear. What a fantastic week we had. Thr house itself is a tranquil paradise from sunrise to sunset. The views are beautiful, ,the breeze just enough to ease the gorgeous sun, and a few steps down from the porch and you can dive right in the crystal clear Caribbean waters. We spent a lot of time at long bay, just down the hill , and everyone is so friendly and helpful. We got all our beach equipment taken care of everyday( ask for Jennifer) , they even arranged a wonderful day of snorkeling at green island for us. We ate a few times at Mama Pasta , which is great little Italian restaurant right by the beach and a quick 2 minute drive into willikes and you can get the best ice cream at a great little local shop. The house has everything you need if you just want to lounge about and rest and relax but the island isn’t big so everything is close. You can head into St. John’s to see the main city and do some shopping , go to the rain forest for zip lines , spend a lovely day at nelson’s Dockyard, or a fun night dancing at Shirley heights. Also, right across from the property is Devils Bridge , a must see natural attraction.. I can’t express how great this location is. Whether it’s a romantic getaway or a fun family adventure it’s perfect. I’m already planning for next year!
I’m so glad to hear about your wonderful vacation! Please be in touch so we can arrange your trip for next year!
Beautiful peaceful getaway
We had a wonderful time at this picturesque home in the hills above Long Bay. Quiet, relaxing, comfortable and clean. We received excellent service before during and after our stay. Lost of fun things to do during the day - jetskiing, hiking, snorkeling, even swimming with stingrays! Along with a secluded home to retreat to at night. I would recommend this property and Antigua to anyone interested in a fun and relaxing vacation.
Just returned from a most wonderful week at the Gordon House. Thanks Gregory Gordon for sharing this wonderful property, thanks Amanda for making the booking process seamless, and to Marilyn, for showing us the real beauty of the Antiguian people.
There are many reasons to love the Gordon House. The privacy, the views, the house itself is spacious and charming. I, along with my 2 sisters and mother, felt completey safe all week. The kitties, Carribean and Wadadli, are a wonderful addition as well. They made us laugh every day, and also provided a practical side. The house is virtually bug free thanks to those cats.
We cooked for ourselves, and Marilyn came every other day to tidy things up (laundry etc). We shopped at Island Provisions which is on the road from the airport, so we stocked up with food etc before heading to the house. We paid $600US to rent a vehicle for the week, but don't expect a new vehicle. The brakes were loud, but it served us well all week.
We were able to swim directly off our property at all times of the day and felt completly safe as it is in a bay not exposed to open ocean. Long bay beach is a 5-6 walk down the road and even my 75 year old mother had no problem navigating the one hill. This beach is great for all ages, gorgeous white sand and gentle waters as well. We took one afternoon to explore St John's, but really couldn't wait to get back to Gordon House.
Highly recommend the Gordon House for anyone looking for peace, privacy and getting to know the real Antigua.
