Turtleberry is well presented two-bedroom, two-bathroom home located at Turtle Bay, a quiet residential area on the peninsula at the outer edge of Falmouth Harbour. The house is named after a local tree the Clammon Cherry, known locally as turtleberry or sometimes turkleberry. A large turtleberry bush is located at the gate of the home.
The house is surrounded by a well-established tropical garden of palms and other colorful shrubs and trees. The easterly view is across Falmouth Harbour towards English Harbour and the house benefits from the fresh, cool breezes. The rocky shoreline at Turtle Bay beach is just a few minutes' walk, however Pigeon Beach, one of the best beaches in Antigua, is 10-minute drive. English Harbour with Nelson's Dockyard, with marinas, restaurants, bars, and shops is 10 minute drive.
The house is single story with two equal-sized queen bedrooms, an open plan living room with kitchen, and an enormous covered veranda facing the garden with dining area and comfy sofa and chairs. At the main entrance, at the back of the house and surrounded by exotic potted plants is a pretty table and chairs, which makes for a charming breakfast area and a great place to watch the hummingbirds. The windows are all adjustable red cedar louvres, beautifully hand-made here in Antigua, and the floors are tiled. The ceilings are high with ceiling fans.
Each bedroom has an en-suite shower room with 'rain' shower heads. The beds are queen-sized four-posters with white nets, and the mattresses have memory-foam toppers for extra comfort. All linens are hotel quality 100 percent cotton. Both bedrooms have air-conditioning.
