The wooden shingled cabin is totally off the grid.
To reach the cabin is a short walk up through a small wood on a narrow winding path from the parking area.
Built on stilts the cabin over looks farmland and woods with a long view down the valley to the hills of English Harbour.
The cabin has a large bedroom with wooden four poster bed with mosquito net. Barn doors open onto a side balcony, an open air bathroom with rain water shower heated by solar and a full kitchen. Wonderful night skies.

Le logement
The cabin is called "Logwood" after one of the trees that surrounds it whose heartwood creates the only natural dye that is still used. This dye was once so valuable that apparently privateers would capture the ships that were taking this cargo to Europe. The blossom makes wonderful honey.
To build Logwood we used as many recycled materials as possible. The doors and shutters are all old, many of which have been left with their original paint work. The outside is covered in wooden shingles in traditional Caribbean style.
The cabin in a small clearing of trees that was just asking for a little something - selecting the spot for its view. On a hill, and built on stilts the cabin overlooks the trees down a long valley view to the back of English Harbour, about 7 miles away. We have tried to preserve this little wood, so have not made a driveway to the cottage. It is secluded, a 3 minute walk from the car parking area, through the trees up a small path. You will need a 4WD to get to the parking area: ( see the section below "Getting Around")
Although the cottage looks traditional it is in fact fairly high tech ! totally independent, run only by solar energy with 24 volt lights, pumps and fridge. There is 110v power as well with USA sockets. The rain water is collected from the roof, and is heated with solar.
The bedroom is large, 16 ft X 16 ft : white stained wooden floor, a double 4 poster carved wooden bed fitted with a mosquito net. There are old louvred doors barn doors that slide open to a side balcony, and shutter doors opening onto the main front balcony. All the doors and windows have mosquito screens.
There is a large wardrobe with plenty of shelving and hanging space - a desk under the windows should you feel inspired to write or draw,, but still has wireless internet!
Off the bedroom is the open bathroom with large rain water shower, basin and low water usage loo.
Antigua is a low lying island - which in turn causes a low annual rainfall - so we need to be conscious of water usage.
The Balcony is 10 ft x 24ft and forms the living and dining areas. The kitchen opens up with wide doors so the whole side is open to the balcony and the dining table is in easy reach. There is a solar run fridge with a good size freezer and 4 burner propane gas stove with oven. The kitchen has all the utensils you will need - and basic larder items. We will supply groceries for your arrival dinner and breakfast, should you feel like staying at home for your first night.

Où se situe le logement

Sawcolts Village, Antigua, Antigua-et-Barbuda

The neighbourhood is very quiet, a good place for walks - a farming area.
The most noise is at night with the tree frogs, crickets and the odd donkey ! Some people wear ear plugs until they get used to them.
For restaurants head to English Harbour. A good selection in a small walkable area and only about a 20 minute drive from the cabin.
When your out at night please the lights on the path are set to go out at 11pm.

I am from England originally, but have been living in the Caribbean for 30 years. I run my own business, a Production Service Company, which helps people coming into the Caribbean for filming or photography. When not traveling for work I live at home at Tranquil Farm with donkeys, dogs, ducks, chickens !! I love to garden and reading, and the peacefulness of my surroundings.

Pendant votre séjour

I live not far away - a few minutes walk.
I leave my guests alone - but am delighted if anyone wants to come and ask me questions, or have a cup of coffee. I am available on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or my number is in the local phone.
