If you planning a vacation and looking for affordable accommodation where you can enjoy the natural environment and be a part of Antiguan life, Ellen Bay Cottages offers you an unique little taste of Antigua that will fit right into your budget.
We are set one minute’s walk away from the local jetty, in the picturesque fishing village of Seatons, located on the northeastern coast of Antigua. This bayfront vacation property allows for great views of the Atlantic Ocean, which is very calm due to the presence of a number of small islands close to shore.
Ellen Bay Cottages is a two storey facility is painted the colour of the surrounding sky and Atlantic Ocean. There are three self catering apartments- 1 one bedroom studio apartment on the lower floor, and 2 spacious two bedroom apartments on the upper floor.
The studio apartment has its own patio with direct access to the outdoors, while the upper units have 2 patios – a back patio which overlooks the tropical garden, and a front, breezy gallery looking out to the beautiful, clear, blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean – a wonderful place to sit back, relax and take your morning coffee or afternoon drinks as the sun goes down.
The upper units are designed with a kitchen, living and dining area. All kitchens are fully equipped with cooking and eating utensils, stove, large refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. Each apartment has air conditioning, cable television, telephone, hot and cold showers, hair dryer, and iron and ironing board. There is a laundry room available for your use, and free wifi internet with your laptop.
For a large family/group, the two upper units can be converted to a 4 bedroom apartment, as the units, though separate, are interlocking and can therefore allow for free movement between rooms. There are also pullout/folding beds which can comfortably accommodate extra persons.
A short walking distance away, at the top of the hill, is a small supermarket where you could pick up your basic supplies; while the larger supermarkets, bars, restaurants, banks and other shopping in St. John’s are only an easy 20 minutes by car.
Ellen Bay Cottages is 5 minutes away from number of churches, including the historic Gilbert Memorial Methodist Church, St. Stephen’s Anglican Church and the SeaGlans Seventh Day Adventist Church. Other historic sites such as Devils Bridge and Betty’s Hope are closest to us than many other vacation properties. A visit to the National Park area of English Harbour, Nelsons Dockyard and Shirley Heights, located on the south eastern side of the island is a short 25 minutes away, while Long Bay and Half Moon Bay – two of the preferred beaches on the island are between 10 and 20 minutes by car.
No visit to Ellen Bay Cottages would be complete without a boat tour to the North Sound Marine Park, where Captain Chippy will navigate through a number of small offshore islands, culminating in a visit to Great Bird Island, where you could go swimming, snorkeling, hiking, or just relaxing on one of two beaches on the island.
