PRIVATE OASIS

  • 5 of 5

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.

Gordon House Stay in Antigua

  • 5 of 5

We had the great pleasure of staying at the Gordon House during our first visit to the isle of Antigua.

To begin, Amanda, our rental liasion, was incredible. She went out of her way to help set up our visit, supply us with directions and tips about the home and island activities. You could not ask for better service.

The housekeeper, Marilyn is a very sweet lady and even though we arrived quite late and during an infrequent rain, she was standing by the gate to ensure we found the house. Marilyn was very helpful and will do as much or as little as you would like as to cooking and/or cleaning. We cooked our own meals, but had her come every other day and she would clean around the entire home and did our dirty laundry. We also opted to forward a grocery list (which was really quite extensive) to Amanda which she forwarded to Marilyn. Everything on the list from smoked turkey to some local Antigua rum was waiting for us upon arrival.

The home is just as described and pictured in the listing, clean, spacious, well furnished, very private and in a beautiful setting on the northeast corner of the island. The vista every morning overlooking Devils Bridge was amazing from the back patio area.

Three items to note, and I want to emphasize these were NOT problems or detriments, but considerations only, when looking at Gordon House.

1. It is a typical tropical home, meaning it is "open". There are breeze ways in the ceilings, the master bathroom is somewhat open with breeze blocks overlooking the the side yard. Ceiling and room fans only - no AC.

2. There are 65 steps down to the incredible private beach area. So if stairs are hard on you..... Otherwise, there are several lounge chairs, tables, a shaded area and plenty of room to stretch in the sun. We thought it was fantastic. I do highly recommend swim shoes since there are reef areas off the beach and if you plan on snorkling or swimming, they will be handy.

3. The house is home to two adorable black and white cats that roam the grounds freely. Now we are critter people, so they immediately became part of the family. But you can easliy limit their access if wanted.

If your planning on driving, I would recommend a small SUV or jeep for traveling around the island. The infrastructure is limited and roadways can be narrow and bumpy. You need to watch for the roaming herds of goats and occassional donkeys and remember, they do drive on the LEFT side of the road.

Thank you Amanda!

Highly recommended...

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from a fantastic week at the Gordon House.

The house is incredibly private. We never saw anyone all week, with the exception of the Verandah resort across the bay, and that required binoculars.

The terrace really is the highlight of this place. A big stone deck right on the water and very private. Yes there are a number steps down to the terrace but unless you are physically handicapped or in horribly bad shape, they aren't a concern.

The house is clean and well kept and has everything you need. The view is fantastic, though some trees have grown up and need pruning. The breeze is great and there are fans in the rooms - you won't miss air conditioning.

Swimming off the terrace was great. The bottom is sandy and the water is shallow. Snorkeling is great if you swim towards the mouth of the bay.

Long Bay Beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is great. You can rent lounge chairs and get served fruity drinks under an umbrella. What more do you want? Walking to the beach is certainly possible, though for many reasons I would strongly recommend renting an SUV or jeep - so just use that instead.

There are a few mosquitoes (as with anywhere in Antigua) but they were rarely a bother due to the breeze and mosquito nets in the rooms. We didn't use any repellent and only got one or two bites all week. Marilyn provided spray, coils and repellant though we didn't need them.

Long Bay Beach has two good restaurants (both Italian) Otherwise buy groceries (in St. Johns) and cook. The kitchen has everything you need. You cannot eat at The Verandah or Pineapple Beach Resorts as they are all inclusive and don't allow outside guests for meals.

Rent an SUV or a Jeep. Privacy comes at a price, so this place is 30 min+ from everything (except Long Bay Beach). The roads are steep rough, especially leading up to the house.

There are two kittens, and while they are sweet, and a hoot to watch run around and play, they are very friendly do get into (and over and under) everything. If this is an issue, talk to the property manager, and they will relocate them while you are there.

Summary - If you are looking for privacy and plan to cook this place is perfect. If you plan to eat out every night and do a lot of beach hopping or sightseeing you might want to be closer to civilization.

Relax away from busy side of island

  • 4 of 5

Choose the Gordon House for majority of grooms family to stay in as wedding was just down the street from the Grand Pinepple Resort (wedding site). Pictures truly do match the amenities provided at the house. Although steps down to patio and Dian Bay are a bit steep, definitely worth it. Step right down into bay, and dry off on stone patio with breeze blowing to keep you cool.Gorgeous views!!!

Housekeeper Marilyn was not only our cook and housekeeper but also provided information regarding island information. We also were provided help from her daughter (wedding dinner) and was provided transportation by her son in law to avoid driving (on left side of road). Made you feel secure working with people you had gotten to know.

Be it the time of year, but only negative is that we were eaten up by mosquitos!! House also has no AC and netting you see in pictures over bed is not decorative- they are definitely needed. We learned alittle too late for us, but we went through 4 cans of OFF and lots of calamine lotion.

Something I think management should have been aware of and provided mosquito foggers and candles to keep them away- we ended up paying for coils and candles ourselves- bitten up already at that point. Please check on this condition by season you will be visiting- never too much information.

Great place to eat is at Long Bay down the road Mama's Pasta- no mama but great pizza, and seafood pastas. The Gordon House is just across the bay from the Verandoah Resort, and can see back side of Devil's Bridge. This location is a place to relax, read a book and get a tan, not close to town, harbours or night life activities.

Definitely would recommend for that usage with mosquito disclaimer.

Besides the itching, great memories.

Reactie van de eigenaar I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Gordon House. It really is the most relaxing environment I have ever experienced. Just a note about the mosquito issue...sometimes after long periods of rain there is an increase in the mosquito population. We do our best to keep this under control with mosquito magnets. I have never had anyone mention the mosquitoes to me before but I truly apologize for any inconvenience they may have caused you. I will look into it immediately and I thank you for bringing it to my attention. Thanks again, Amanda Rodriguez, property manager
