Falmouth Harbour, Antigua
Set on 1.5 acres on aharbourside promontory, St Anne’s Point is built upon a 200-year-old cannon platform which was constructed by the Royal Artillery engineers to take advantage of the sweeping 270 degree field offire across Falmouth Harbour.
The stone base forms the ground floor of the Great House which has been rebuilt in the style of a Georgian maritime residence with wooden shingle roof set with dormer windows and balconies.
Wooden louvred windows and doors open out onto the 120 ft gallerywhich is situated at mega yacht mast height overlooking the entrance channels to Falmouth Harbour’s three marinas.
The signal tower has been rebuilt as an observation post; the powder magazine now stores sun loungers instead of cannon shot and the stables have been replaced with a spacious self-contained guest cottage.
From the moment you ascend the stone steps to the main entrance hall with its views to the harbour entrance until you switch off the bedroom lights and the twinkling mast lights stand out, you are constantly aware of the maritime panorama that surrounds you.
The great room has a 25 ft. high vaultedroof and provides 1,500 sq.ft. of livingand entertaining space. The north facing gallery is shaded all day and is cooled by the prevailing north easterly winds. From the gallery there are stunning views across the Caribbean Sea, as well as access to an outdoor kitchen and dining pavilion.
In the Great House there are three bedrooms. The wonderfully spacious master suite is on the upper level and as well as an en-suite it has a breakfast and sunset balcony, one on either side of the room to catch both sunrises and sunsets. Bedrooms two and three each have an en-suite and doors onto the north facing gallery.
In the cottage there is a lovely spacious living area with doors leading to a delightful terrace with fabulous views across the harbour. There are two bedrooms with doors out to a shared verandah and each has an en-suite. It also has a garage, utility room and generator room. The west entrance leads onto an open deck with a covered outside kitchen and dining pavilion.
Taking the steps down to the pool deck you can lounge by the 50 ft. pool orshelter from the sun’s rays in the raised gazebo.

Falmouth Harbour is a horseshoe-shaped bay and natural harbour on the far southern coast of Antigua. This small township and port lies close to its northern shore. English Harbour is located close to its eastern shore.
The harbour lies close to the eastern end of the Shekerley Mountains, a range of hills along Antigua's southern coast. Monk's Hill, the easternmost peak in the range, lies immediately to the north of the bay.
English Harbour is a centre of boating, especially yachting. There are two sheltered deepwater harbours nearby; English Harbour itself and Falmouth Harbour.
English Harbour is best known for Nelson's Dockyard, a former British Navy base; it displays restored 18th and 19th-century buildings and other historical artifacts from the colonial period of the dockyard, especially the time it was commanded by Horatio Nelson.
Falmouth Harbour offers an array of activities to visitors taking them from the sea to the hills. During the winter months, the harbour is full of expensive yachts as pleasure sailors dock their boats here, making sailing and other sports that rely on boats like fishing and diving very popular here. Inland you can take advantage of several hiking trails along with numerous historic attractions in the area just waiting to be explored.
Beaches in the Falmouth Harbour area are known for their calm waters that are perfect for swimmers of all skill levels. However, due to their location being close to the cruise port terminal you will find that they are some of the most crowded beaches on the island.
