Hibiscus is a lovely private guest house, located on a hillside overlooking the Antigua Yacht Club Marina and Falmouth Harbour. It is in a trendy neighborhood that is safe and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars, grocery shops, bank, Nelson's Dockyard, and of course our favorite....Pigeon Point Beach.
Meandering paths connect seven private guest cottages to the Main House, known collectively as The Pineapple House. Guests are welcome to join an informal cocktail hour with other guests and friends, or you are welcome to remain in your own house with living room, bedroom and kitchen.
Restaurants in the area offer everything from local to French, English, and Italian fare.... All are within walking distance of the Pineapple House.
Most of all, the view is stunning from the cottage with luxury yachts anchored on the docks below. At different times of the year, the view changes, as Super Yachts are swapped out for racing yachts, depending upon what functions are going on ashore. The Antigua Yacht Club hosts regattas throughout the year and is located literally 3 minutes from our front gate!
The king size bed has a mosquito net and a fan. We catch our rain water from gutters, so please use water sparingly. The houses are open to the air and offer a tropical, Caribbean style, where yellow and black birds, Banana Twits, fly through the house and visit while you are having breakfast....They may hop impatiently while you finish your fruit. We put sugar out to succor them in further...
There is complimentary internet (in the main house only) and a code to our front gate. We have a friendly and local staff on site, who make up your bed daily and clean your room. We are like family, small and quaint.
Hibiscus is less expensive than Bird House and Cleopatras, because it shares a house with Cleopatras, but it is more expensive than Frangipani and Rum Jungle, because the view is better. It does not have as many steps as Bird House, and while it has a great view, the view is not as good as at Cleopatras, which is located above it with hot water shower. Hibiscus has a private kitchen and cold-water shower.
Pineapple House is a great place to catch up on reading and writing. People who stay here meet people, both within the compound of Pineapple itself and at pubs ashore. Pineapple House caters to the crew off the yachts, who take time off between charters, and we also receive a lot of business from AirBNB guests. People dress up at night and dance the night away at music clubs, where bands are known for their guitarists and singers. Pigeon Point beach is a five minute walk, where there is more than one beach bar. English Harbour offers a safe, trendy neighborhood, where excellent Italian and French restaurants are within walking distance. During regattas, sailors off the racing yachts prefer to stay at Pineapple House. Antigua is known for its beautiful, white sandy beaches, stunning scenery, and friendly people.
Pineapple House and Hibiscus suffered no damage whatsoever from Hurricane Irma, which swept past Antigua on September 5th, 2017. Hibiscus will be ready to go for her full season of bookings, starting October 21st, 2017....

Please feel free to walk around the gardens and join us in the main house for sundowners at sunset.... There’s a lounge in the main house, where you can surf the web (if not in your private cottage), and the little gazebo next to the main house gets good internet reception as well, although the light has to be on for the electric outlet to work. Though we prefer not to do guest laundry, due to water scarcity, we do have laundry facilities on property for a small fee. The garden is for everybody to enjoy with guava trees, mango trees, banana trees, and lots of tropical flowers.

I am Libby Nicholson, born and raised in Antigua and owner-operator of Pineapple House since 1999. Color, design, and people are my specialty and my passion. Pineapple House is a friendly atmosphere property, where people arrive as guests and leave as family. The mix of international people on the property makes it personal, as this is a small Guest House.
I have a plethora of island information to share with you. If you find activities or restaurants on the island that I have missed or do not know about, please share your experiences with us, as we are always interested to learn more about our beautiful island! We have the house phone for making reservations, and taxis are a moment away... We recommend that you order any hire cars online before you arrive as it is less expensive, and you are guaranteed the car style of your choice. I and my staff are on the property full time; we are here for you anytime.
There is no TV or air conditioning at Pineapple House; guests are invited for sundowners at the main house each evening. All the cottages are open to the wind, and mosquitos do make their way in. Each bed has a mosquito net and a fan, and there is a Mosquito Magnet in the yard, which we rebait every three weeks. With the exception of Bird House and Cleopatras, there is no hot water at Pineapple House; guests are asked to use water sparingly, as water is scarce on the island. Pineapple House has wonderful ocean views, but there are lots of stairs. Because each cottage has just one double bed, Pineapple House caters primarily to couples; dormitory-style beds are available in the main house for crew off the yachts. Internet is available in the main house and gazebo only; we welcome guests to use internet service in the main house. We are open from October to May.
Please be considerate of other guests staying on the property. Water is scarce on the island; please use water sparingly. Our rooms are open to the air; please expect some mosquito intrusion. Pineapple House is located on a steep hillside; there are lots of steps. Please always make safety your highest priority. We are interactive with our guests; people arrive as friends and leave as family.
