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!

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!
