Villa Helmina is a beautiful oceanfront oasis located in the heart of the Caribbean, boasting three spacious bedrooms and spectacular sea views. Situated on the southwest coastline of the island of Antigua, the villa is part of the Tamarind Hills boutique collection of villas and suites, affording exclusive access to the resort’s fantastic facilities.  

Thoughtfully designed with the laidback Caribbean lifestyle in mind, Villa Helmina’s understated décor echoes the natural beauty of the surrounding island. There is a peaceful terrace that wraps around the ground floor, where you can spend your mornings relaxing in the infinity-edged swimming pool, with the warm Caribbean breeze, the lush greenery of the garden and the sea’s gently lapping waves instilling a sense of peace and tranquility.

The terrace also features sun loungers and umbrellas, as well as a covered seating area, the perfect place to relax with a good book for the afternoon. A charming gazebo overlooking the sparkling turquoise water is made for a cocktail at sunset, while the barbecue grill and outdoor dining area provides guests with the ideal space to prepare a memorable meal at home.

Glass walls lead into the villa’s large open plan living space, featuring a stylish lounge area where the whole family can relax in comfort after a day spent exploring the wonders of the island. This area flows seamlessly into the villa’s modern, well-appointed kitchen, fitted with a wide breakfast bar. The lovely dining area adjacent to the kitchen allows for a romantic dinner with a view. There is also a media entertainment room leading off from the main living space.

On the first floor, Villa Helmina boasts three oceanfront bedrooms, each furnished with a king-size bed and featuring contemporary décor. The master suite features a large private balcony with stunning panoramic vistas. Each of the bedrooms also provides guests with a modern en-suite bathroom, complete with a walk-in rain shower.

Air conditioning is featured throughout Villa Helmina, with fitted ceiling fans also in place, ensuring that your nights are as cool and restful as your days are sunny and rejuvenating. The villa has direct boardwalk access to both Darkwood Beach and Ffryes Beach, two of Antigua’s most iconic beauty spots.

Villa Helmina’s dreamlike vistas stretch from the fine white sands of Darkwood Beach across the turquoise ocean to Montserrat in the distance. Antigua is a small Caribbean Island, famous for its serene bays, lush green headlands, coral reefs and blue lagoons - not to mention the fact that it boasts 365 beaches, one for every day of the year! Here, families and couples alike will have endless opportunities to explore the wonders of the sea whilst soaking up the sunshine.

Slightly further afield, Nelson’s Dockyard National Park is one of five national parks in Antigua. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, this eighteenth-century British naval dockyard is an area of great historical significance on the island, as well as a popular venue for maritime events and activities. For those who wish to experience the magic for themselves, there are plenty of sailing excursions and water-based activities available.

There are plenty of fantastic trekking trails around the island, taking in sandy beaches, rainforests and dreamlike coastal views. For a challenging hike, put on your hiking shoes and visit Mount Obama, the highest peak in Antigua. From the summit, enjoy the panoramic views, before descending to Cades Bay for a delightfully refreshing dip in the ocean.

Shirley Heights is another popular destination. A restored military lookout, this is a spot known for its bewitching views and community feel. With a popular street party happening every Sunday afternoon, visitors are welcome to enjoy the music of live Caribbean steel drum bands, taste some of the local food and rum punch and take in the breathtaking sights as the sun begins to go down on the beautiful island of Antigua.

Drive along the coast before heading inland via Fig Tree Drive and within twenty minutes you will reach the incredible Antigua Rainforest Canopy Park, where a day of ziplining and rainforest adventure awaits! There are a range of fun and friendly eco-activities available here, with options to suit all age groups. With knowledgeable and experienced instructors to guide you at every step along the way, you will cross suspension bridges and rope obstacles whilst ziplining your way above the tree-tops and crisscrossing a stunning gorge. This exhilarating day out varies in intensity, with ziplines throughout the rainforest at various heights and lengths. Don’t forget to take a break in the magical twin tree houses tucked away in the dense rainforest.

The hiking and trekking trails of Nelson’s Dockyard are another great way to get closer to nature, this time with your feet planted firmly on the ground! Make your way from the marina at Nelson’s Dockyard up to the panoramic views of Shirley Heights on a quiet weekday afternoon, for a scenic hike that everyone will remember. This is a relatively easy hike but do make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and pack plenty of water. There are handy downloadable trail maps available online.

Back down at Nelson’s Dockyard, there is plenty of fun to be had out on the water, with sailing excursions for beginners and more experienced sailors available. Watersports are widely available throughout the island, with sea kayaking and kitesurfing among the most popular. On land, horse riding enthusiasts can saddle up by arranging a visit to a local riding club. Horseback tours can be booked to suit a range of age groups and abilities, taking in gorgeous valleys and pristine beaches with the help of new friends. For an introduction to a truly important facet of Antiguan culture, why not take the family to watch a local cricket match? The island is fiercely devoted to its national sport, which is played everywhere, though official matches tend to take place on weekends.

Younger visitors to the Antiguan capital of St. John’s will be delighted by the vivid colours and sounds of this lively port city, where the whole family can visit a local restaurant to sample some of the island’s delicious delicacies. From here, head back to one of your local beaches for another relaxing swim together, before you make your way up to the villa to enjoy the starry night ahead.
