This stunning island retreat captures the essence of Caribbean living in modern relaxed style. Meticulous attention to detail can be felt in every aspect of CooL HouSe s understated elegance and premium quality finish - one of the true gems of Antigua s beautiful western cape.
Nestled deep within the gated security of Jolly Harbour, at the end of the secluded North Finger beach, far from vehicular and pedestrian traffic, CooL HouSe is the perfect island getaway. Enjoy convenience, safety and privacy without finding oneself in the middle of nowhere although the house’s tranquility would sometimes make it seem that way.
Three main buildings adorn the property, connected by garden walkways dotted with tropical greenery, a soothingly bubbling fountain and relaxing areas to chill out in the shade. Caribbean “outdoor living” is not a catchphrase, but a central axiom defining the entire design of every space in CooL HouSe.
The heart of CooL HouSe is an outdoor covered dining, living, coffee, bar and billiard area overlooking the turquoise tranquility of the Caribbean Sea. A 40-foot unobstructed view overlooks the pool and effortlessly transforms into a mosquito-free zone with fully automated screens that protect the entire living area. Enjoy being outside all evening long without any nuisance from bugs whatsoever. Relaxing on the couches with a view to the beach, playing a game of billiards, dining on the luxurious 14 seat live-slab table, or enjoying a cocktail at the wrap-around bar, all while basking in the glow of a western sunset and the murmuring of the sea.
The kitchen and main living areas catch the trade winds and allow the breeze to flow right through the complex, while being at the heart of the house. The exclusive custom made and installed German kitchen comes completely stocked with any and all necessary professional cooking gear. Appliances include a wine fridge, separate beer and drinks fridge, the main Miele fridge, a professional grade under counter ice maker, a massive gas cooktop, and all of the necessary small appliance goodies. A breakfast counter and large couch are integrated inside the kitchen for convenience and conviviality while preparing and enjoying the space, as well as the wrap-around bar connecting straight through to the main kitchen counter area.
Attached to the kitchen is a second living room area with a huge 70-inch television and sound system as well as plenty of comfortable seating for a fully immersive television experience. The area can be segregated with tall glass doors for privacy and air-conditioned viewing if desired. 6 Sonos speakers are found throughout the main building with several different listening possibilities.
The master suite is connected to the main outdoor living area via a side hallway, and features an unobstructed view of the beach, with it’s own private seating area/balcony. The breeze-through design connects the en suite bathroom to CooL HouSe’s luscious interior courtyard. The spacious bathroom includes a large shower, stone countertop with twin Italian sinks, a deliciously inviting bathtub for soaking in the sounds of the water feature beside and the gentle air of the winter trades at night.
Two supplementary buildings each house a pair of fully appointed bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, king size beds and a myriad of possibilities to ensure guest comfort in many different configurations. All of the bedrooms include air conditioning and private outdoor seating areas with individual entrances. One of the bedrooms is equipped with a kitchenette with a small stove and refrigerator for convenience. This same bedroom communicates via interior doors with another bedroom configured with two bunk beds: 1 single over single, and 1 single over double. This allows for a very complete child sleeping capacity, or comfortable accommodation for an adult couple as well.
CooL HouSe’s open design, with individual spaces delimited by landscaping and features means there’s enough roof for everyone. A living experience where there is literally enough space for guests to be on their own, in one of the myriad of spots throughout the compound, or then together when desired in the shared areas. Daybeds in the courtyard and a huge integrated seating area for snoozing by the bubbling water feature, a rooftop patio to enjoy a lazy end of day cocktail, comfortable lounge chairs poolside as well as 2 in-pool loungers, beach chairs beside the sea, there is certainly something for everyone.
The pool features a saltwater chlorinator that is extremely easy on the skin and eyes. There is a shallow wading area convenient for toddlers or for enjoying the integrated pool loungers in the sun. The patio includes 2 professional in-deck Tucci umbrellas for those who desire a little shade from the hot Caribbean sun.
There is a large separate laundry room complete with a very high capacity washing machine and dryer such that any work carried out by cleaning personnel will not disturb guests during their stay.
In addition to chilling out at the house, Jolly Harbor is home to a large well-stocked grocery store, golf and tennis, restaurants, bars, charter sailing and fishing to name a few.

Other things to note:
