Relax on a private beach, lounge by the pool and enjoy some of the finest views on the Island from a spacious balcony overlooking Freeman’s Beach. The English Haven is the privately owned house of Philip T English and his family, nestling in the hills of English Harbour’s National Park, in the heart of the Caribbean.  

English Harbour, home to Nelson's Dockyard - is the only working original Georgian dockyard in the world. Its surrounding area, carefully protected by National Parks, echoes the days of the old wooden schooners but boasts many excellent restaurants, lively bars, art galleries, beauty salons, boutiques and local craft shops that you might expect of a contemporary town.

The house overlooks and is situated in the grounds of Galleon Beach, a small, exclusive resort of essentially private Caribbean homes. So you can enjoy all the beach facilities including water-sports and tennis courts with the benefit of the discreet security of the resort but with the privacy of your private house.

Whether you come for the sailing, the carnival, the reggae, the cricket, the restaurants, the diving, the bars, the climate or simply the tranquility of an unspoilt Caribbean island, The English Haven is the perfect home from which to enjoy it.
