Located on 1.7 acres of hillside within Turtle Bay, one of Antigua's most exclusive neighbourhoods, The Rock House is a a superbly built stylish house.The land is elevated ensuring a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea with the island of Guadeloupe visible on clear days and ensuring wonderful cooling breezes throughout most of the year.The Rock House and its garden have been built with great respect for the surroundings and the environment and the retaining walls, drive and walkways are built using natural stone located on the property.
