The Decagon @ Dry Hill
Efficient Quarters Caribbean Style
Conveniently situated on the northwest coast of sunny Antigua at Fort James Beach and just 15 minutes from the airport, The Decagon @ Dry Hill is truly a simple island escape. Nestled in a rural setting, yet close to restaurants and shopping in St. John's and two of Antigua's other popular beaches, our location allows you to explore this area of the island without the need for a taxi or rental car. Privately owned and personally attended, this unique villa offers one ground level guest unit assuring a romantic ambiance our patrons deserve.
Fort James Beach is just a short stroll through a pasture where you may see livestock grazing. It is possible you will recognize one or more of the horses later, if you decide to take a memorable sunset ride. Make a point to photograph the Sugar Mill as you pass by. Along the beach, you can stop for a drink or bite to eat at one of the local beach bars. On the point at sunset, Fort James is a lovely spot to relax and watch the cruise ships leaving the harbor. You can almost touch them as they float past. If you are lucky, you may even experience a "green flash" as the sun disappears into the sea.

From your West facing private patio, equipped with a retractable awning, enjoy seeing cruise ships sail into the harbor in the morning. In the evening, watch the countless variations of sunset skies.
In keeping with island tradition, we have planted many varieties of tropical fruit trees. Some have started to bear. If you time your stay just right, ;) , your breakfast, lunch, or dinner could be enhanced with freshly picked fruit. For a real laid-back experience, read or just relax in a shaded hammock adjacent to your room. In addition to the hammock and your private patio, you can sunbath or stargaze on our elevated patio. It overlooks St. John's, the cruise ships in the harbor, and the great sunsets to the West. On clear days you can even see Monserrat, Nevis, or St. Kitts. In the rear of the villa there is an outdoor hot/cold shower (yes, you have a shower in the room). It's really refreshing after time at the beach.
