Antrim Villa | A 2 night stay for two people

Built-in the late 1800s, Antrim was originally an old English Victorian family residence but has since been transformed into a modern, beautifully decorated guest house. Albeit modern, the guest house still retains its old-world charm with the high ceilings and well-kept stucco.

This guest house is not your typical run-of-the-mill – the outside walls are lined with tall bamboo, which gives you the best feeling of seclusion and privacy that you can’t really find in the city. There is a personal, home-away-from-home feeling which resonates with everyone who enters Antrim’s doors.
