The Blue Waters launches luxury Antigua holiday residences to purchase

Those looking to buy luxury Antigua holiday homes are in luck as the Blue Waters Hotel launches the sale of ‘Blue Waters Residences,’ a limited collection of luxury villas on the grounds of this award-winning boutique resort. Having played host to many A-list celebrities on Antigua holidays over the last 27 years this privately owned resort, is now offering an opportunity for others to live the celebrity lifestyle by owning their own piece of Caribbean paradise and have a secure place for Antigua holidays that they can call home.

Celebrities that have stayed at Blue Waters include John Barrowman (who stayed very recently on February 2010), Piers Morgan, Caprice, Paul Young, Robbie Fowler, Pauline Collins and George Graham. Piers Morgan, who stayed at the hotel’s Rock Cottage, said: "It was as close to perfection as a Caribbean holiday could get."

Lying on Antigua’s northern coast, the Blue Waters is a British-Colonial style boutique resort nestled in a secluded sandy cove along 17 acres of lush tropical gardens. Owned by British-born Ronald Randall, a self-made and successful entrepreneur, he acquired the hotel 27 years ago from a local Antiguan who was given the land by the Queen for his duties during the Second World War on the condition that he built a 30 bedroom hotel. And this is precisely what has been done at this exceptional resort that throughout its history has been acclaimed for providing outstanding luxury holidays in Antigua.

Since its creation the hotel has expanded to 77 rooms and has won many awards over the years, such as Antigua and Barbuda’s Leading Hotel in the World Travel Awards in 2006. In the same year it was voted by Virgin Holidays as the ‘Best Hotel’ in the Caribbean and Mexico’. The decision to launch Blue Waters Residences was made as a result of the family’s successful sell out of 24 properties in an incredible six weeks in 2007 with The Cove Residences, a development adjacent to the hotel that offers premium accommodation for luxury holidays in this region of Antigua.

The new Blue Water Residences comprise 8 freehold villas (5 three bedroom villas, 2 two bedroom villas and 1 one bedroom villa) which will be extensively refurbished and are available to purchase on a buy-to-let basis. The villas will all be finished in a colonial style, in-keeping with the rest of the hotel. Interiors will feaature natural stone worktops and tiles in the kitchen, a Victorian style bathroom suite with free standing baths in the bathroom, and carved wooden furniture throughout the villa. And for the perfect sun-tanning space on relaxing Antigua holidays on your own little piece of island, outside a 200 sq. ft plunge pool will provide a welcome cooling respite from the hot Caribbean sun.

Owners will be able to enjoy hassle free ownership and can utilise the property for up to two months per year (one month in high season and one month in low season). The property is maintained and rented out in the owner’s absence and the villas are expected to provide a minimum of 6% rental yield, based on previous hotel occupancy records that have averaged 80% over seven years up to 2008.

The residences are only metres from a beautiful white sandy beach and calm, clear Caribbean waters, and a few steps away from 3 restaurants, 7 pools, a gymnasium and a Spa.
