After spending 6 days in Antigua it's clear why it's such a popular vacation destination. From the white sand beaches to the cystal clear water and the friendly locals, we can positively say we have zero complaints from our time spent there. We stayed in two different Air Bnb's both which exceeded our expectations. Read on to see photos and reviews of accommodations, restaurants and activities!

Our first stay was at the Pineapple House in the English Harbour, we rented the Hibiscus Room and were immediately blown away by the coastal decor and overall vibe of the place. The host, Libby, was warm and welcoming and made us feel right at home.  Above is our villa, complete with a small kitchen (which we cooked breakfast in every morning) a king size bed, living room and unreal view. The villa is completely open so there's no AC and birds can fly in an out but we found it to be lovely. There's a mosquito net that we tucked under the mattress before we left for dinner and had no issues with bites. 

This room was truly a pleasure to design. The natural light with the wall of windows is unbeatable and allowed us to keep the room light and airy. The featured sofas are Nantucket slipcovered in a Bull Denim White twill allowing superior comfort, fit and best of all – washability. The pieces are anchored by a bleached jute rug.

Accent chairs are custom Chippendale Lounge Chairs in indigo blue, upholstered in linen print fabric.

On the rug, is The Starlight Coffee Table is a hand-crafted reclaimed hardwood with distressed white finish. It’s the perfect coastal coffee table for any room.

In a similar finish, there is the St. Kitt sideboard made of solid mahogany with iron stem twist latches and bun feet in a painted white harvest finish.

To really tie in that rich, indigo blue color found on the Chippendale chairs, the pillows have an ikat pattern of blues on white, the Temple Jars and Ginger Jar highlight rich China Blues as well as the large planter. On the sideboard there is a pair of beautiful statement piece, chain-link hurricanes.
