Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort, Private Island, Antigua
Jumby Bay is a 300-acre private island located two miles off Antigua. It is home to a 40-bedroom Rosewood resort as well as 56 privately-owned Villas & Estate Homes (38 estate homes and 18 villas). Twenty sixof the villas and estate homes are also available to rent as part of the resort inventory when the owners are not in residence. The island is owned by the homeowners with each buyer having an equal share.
Some real-estate opportunities remain on Jumby Bay, though there is a cap on the number of homes that will be built, ensuring privacy and exclusivity. All owners have full access to the resort’s facilities and Jumby Bay is often chosen as a favourite with celebrities and Royalty as privacy is paramount.

Situated directly on the island’s Pasture Beach – home to the endangered Hawksbill Turtle, this luxury villa boasts over 4,000 sq ft of living space including two master suites and two courtyard guest rooms with individual baths.
The exposed rafters, open-air cupola and covered cerandahs of this Caribbean villa showcase the unobstructed trade winds which cool the crescent beach. The luxury home – which has been elegantly decorated and furnished – also features an inviting azure swimming pool set directly off the beach, as well as spacious living, dining and lounging areas.
