Mermaid’s Cove is an idyllic 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom harbour side home in Jolly Harbour. This pretty waterside retreat is conveniently built on one level with main residence, guest house and private dock. The generous terrace with a sheltered breakfast nook profits from the balmy Caribbean trade winds and is complemented by the carefully designed tropical landscaping that surrounds it.
The interior of the main house impresses with an airy high ceiling and an open floor plan as well as a fully equipped, modern fitted kitchen which has cherry wood cabinets and stainless steel fittings and appliances. This area is connected to an elegant dining area via a large serving window. There is one large bedroom with a grand four-poster bed and a separate room enclosed with large wooden double doors which is currently being used as an office, however this could easily be utilized as a bedroom if preferred. The en-suite bathroom is fitted with a shower as well as a large bath tub. The well-designed guest bathroom completes the main house and includes a stacked front-loading washer and dryer.
The present owners have planning approval to build a further bedroom to add to the overall living space.
The dining area opens up through the armour mesh-protected glass sliding door onto the breakfast patio with cut stone flooring which flows from the inside out. The patio and the large sun deck offer not only an excellent harbour view but a beautiful backdrop of Antigua’s green hillsides.
From this area, there is access to the guest house which contains one large bedroom furnished with a 4 poster queen bed, a small children’s room fitted with a comfy twin bed, an office with desk, chair and lounger and a full bathroom. Please note that the furniture is not included in the listing price and must be negotiated separately.
Mermaid’s Cove boasts custom crafted cedar wood doorways and custom windows fully shuttered for carefree maintenance. Elegant cut stone flooring lines the villa adding to the unique experience. Attention to detail has been shown throughout this property, with practicalities such as a 30,000 litre cistern tank and the design and layout of this villa allows for the cooling breezes to flow throughout.

The 20,000 pound boat lift is able to accommodate a 40 foot vessel while the pier provides mooring for a 50 foot long vessel.
