Hummingbird House sleeps ten guests in five sea-facing double or twin rooms all with en-suite bathrooms. Living, dining and outdoor is upstairs with bedrooms split between the two floors.
Whoever first built a property on the site of the current Hummingbird House certainly chose one of the finest locations in Antigua. At around 100ft above sea level, the house catches the gentle and cooling trade winds breeze and enjoys magnificent views over Pigeon Beach and Falmouth Bay, out towards Montserrat and the Caribbean sea beyond.
Set in almost an acre of tropical gardens and bordered to the South by the hills of the National Park, the house is totally private yet only a 5 minute walk from idyllic Pigeon Beach, Falmouth Marina with its shops, bars and restaurants, and from historic Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour.
For complete relaxation, the verandahs at Hummingbird provide the ideal spot to watch the coming and going of some of the world’s most luxurious yachts or simply the endless visits of tropical birds to the lush gardens.
