Calabash at Jumby Bay
Caribbean / Antigua / Jumby Bay Island
Calabash invites you to explore, see, feel, and enjoy nature in a uniquely warm, elegant and modern setting.
This beautifully designed four-bedroom beach home offers enhanced privacy along a secluded stretch of the shoreline centered around a lush oasis of tropical gardens featuring over 10,000 plants and 200 trees that provide a sense of nature, while organically protecting guest privacy.
Textures of natural elements infused with Caribbean light blend features like cooling travertine stone floors, Caribbean wood and special pebble-stone-floors beckoning guests to relax and enjoy the barefoot elegance of this ultimate home-away experience from the moment they enter. Calabash offers plenty of tranquil living spaces from a shaded loggia for dining al fresco, to a comfortably carefree living room, to a quiet stretch of beach just steps away from the pool, all perfectly suited for relaxing moments and memories. Guests retire to four beach-chic bedrooms including two Master Suites, a pool suite and a garden suite, each offering super-king beds, air conditioning and fans, and unique indoor and outdoor baths. The interior design reflects the beach and the cooling colors of the Caribbean and you will find “driftwood-like” furniture surfaces in all rooms, reflecting and reminding you that Calabash wants to bring to you a very unique, light and friendly natural touch every day.
There is no shortage of sophistication including a fully equipped kitchen and bar, designed with a vintage feel in mind, but with modern high-touch equipment. Those that cannot leave the internet behind, will enjoy a dedicated cutting-edge wireless internet system which covers the entire property, and interfaces with a wireless high-fidelity sound system and video streaming system accessible via a large TV screen in the living room or individual iPads usable anywhere on the property.
The magnificent oceanfront heated infinity pool provides magical views of Calabash and Jumby Bay Beaches. Set just above sea-level the pool and terrace area seems to float out to the sea, with a wooden sunset deck designed to rest, just above the tide. The sense of connection to the water continues as the pool melds into the Caribbean blue, but also encourages guests of Calabash to enjoy the dramatic nightly display of Antigua’s signature sunset hues.
A friendly and highly educated team is on-hand at Calabash, including a personal chef, house supervisor and butler, housekeeper, and gardener, all ready to cater to guests’ every need. Calabash is just steps away from Jumby Bay beach and a minute stroll from resort restaurants, bars and other island amenities.
