Alagana House - a hillside retreat with panoramic views of Falmouth Harbour and surrounding hills.  Alagana derives its name from the Amerindian word for a golden yellow tropical apple that is said to have grown in abundance in Antigua in the 1800s.  

As one of the original villa properties located on the island, this delightful and comfortable home with 3 bedrooms boasts high ceilings and even higher views across to the stunning landscape of both Falmouth & English Harbour.   It has a plantation house style feel, with high ceilings, wide shady terraces and cool interiors. The villa is spread over two floors; the walls are decorated with an array of original artwork with a Caribbean and Yachting theme.  It is spacious yet intimate. Suitable for mature families, groups of friends, couples, and honeymooners.

The hub of the house is the large and inviting open-plan kitchen with top quality appliances and loads of space for culinary magic!  Enjoy your meals on the shaded terrace or in the cool breeze or air conditioned interiors.  
Lay back and bask in the warm Caribbean sunshine or take a refreshing shower in the outdoor facilities, the pool deck is a space you’ll not want to leave in a hurry!

There are 3 bedrooms that sleeps up to 6 guests and all bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Two of them are upstairs, located on wings either side of the living area, both then with interior access.  The master bedroom has a four poster ‘plantation style’ king-size bed and is spacious, light and airy, a small balcony over looks the harbour.  The second bedroom has the same features and lay out, a king size bed, balcony that leads into the garden and en suite bathroom.  The 3rd and largest bedroom is located downstairs and may be accessed without disturbing the upper floor. The en suite bathroom has a large rain shower head, bring your very own rain cloud to the bathroom and turn the average shower into a great shower. For those who like to keep abreast of business this large bedroom also has a desk and is very private with doors leading onto its own sun terrace.

Quality bathroom products allow guests to pamper themselves and when it’s time to hit the beach, guests can go armed and ready with the villa beach towels.   The infinity pool keeps you cool and the gentle breeze rolling off the hill sides fills the air with a sense of calm.

Awaken to the sound of birdsong in the trees and sunshine filling the sky.  Melt into the outdoor day bed and get lost in your favourite book, Alagana boasts many versatile outdoor areas ensuring there’s something for everyone. Choose to relax amid the hive of activity around the kitchen and dining areas, or slip away to a secluded spot on the lawn for some time away.

Rachel D. Mar, 2018

The Alagana House was lovely. It was very comfortable, with plenty of comfy places to sit and spread out. We loved the large, covered outdoor space. The views, especially at sunset, were spectacular. The beds were very comfortable and linens and towels were seemed soft and high quality. The kitchen was really one of the best supplied kitchens we've had in a rental house.
We didn't do a lot of cooking, but even for preparing breakfast or afternoon drinks and snacks, we found everything we needed (especially great was that there were good, sharp chef knives- very rare commodity in rental homes!).
The pool was small, but for us it was perfect. We liked to come back from a day at the beach and relax in the pool and watch the sunset-- fabulous view from the pool!

We rented a car and explored many of the beaches and that's what I'd recommend. Our favorites were Half Moon Bay, FFreyes and Darkwoods.
There are many decent places to eat in English Harbour. We liked Paparazzi Pizza, Flatties, Catherine's Cafe, Cloggy's, BOOM (for lunch) and Pillars at the Admiral Inn. Jacqui O's at Love Beach is pricey, but a delicious meal and fun place to spend the day on their beach beds.

Beautiful comfortable home with wonderful 270 degree views of the harbor and sea below

Gardener/caretaker and maid were most kind and patient

Suggestions for car rental, grocery stores, restaurants, site seeing etc were all excellent and very helpful

We have visited over 15 Carribean islands and Alagana House in Antigua is definitely one of our favorites!

The Alagana house was better than we could have imagined. Spectacular views of the Harbour; beds were very comfortable (we traveled with 8); wonderful breezes and a great infinity pool. The property management staff visited every day to check on us and take care of all our needs and questions (shout out to our new friend Rambo!).

If you plan on a trip to Antigua, the Alagana house is a great choice. It's a steep climb to reach the property, but that's a small price for the views!


"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
