Jolly Harbour villa description
Villa Rumrunner is a FlipKey Gold Award villa with excellent reviews. It is a beautiful fully equipped air conditioned villa with super kitchen, quality bathrooms and presented like checking into a deluxe self-catering hotel, but at a fraction of the cost. It’s in a peaceful location on the North Finger, just a short walk to a quiet private picturesque beach. Not overlooked in front or behind by other villas, and away from the noise of South Finger bars and restaurants. All you have is the water front and lovely water views. There is a dock. Water craft can be rented. If the owners are in Antigua a complimentary afternoon sailing is available on a lovely 35’ Island Packet sailing yacht.
The completely refurbished villa offers 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are 3 piece ensuite, one with a king bed, one with queen and single bed. The other bathroom is on the ground floor adjacent to a twin bunk bedroom which also has A/C. The villa is suitable for up to 6 people plus a young child. A cot (crib) is provided. The master bedroom has a new in 2013 King pillow top mattress , with patio doors opening on to a balcony overlooking the ocean. There is A/C and a ceiling fan. The second bedroom, also with A/C and ceiling fan, has pretty views of the Sleeping Indian, a lucky local landmark. The large patio has an outdoor shower. Great for cooling down after a hard day on the beach. Villa Rumrunner is beautifully decorated with a Caribbean flair. The south facing patio with sun all day has an awning for shade, 2 sun loungers and 6 chairs around the table where you can enjoy a relaxing meal sip a cold beverage, and enjoy the view. Rumrunner is professionally managed by an on site team who are there to help you make your vacation truly memorable. I would be very happy to call and answer any questions you have regarding our villa and any other information you require. Please provide a number that you can be reached at if you would like to discuss this property further.

Best Villa Ever
Let me start by saying this Villa was amazing!! We came to antigua to get married and originally planned on staying at Jolly Beach Resort. Once I stumbled across this villa we had a change of heart and thought it would be much more relaxing staying here and trust me it was!! 1st off the location was perfect...its on the North Finger and was nice a quiet. We enjoy the party scene but loved the fact that we could get away from all the hustle and bustle when we were ready. The villa was beautiful and made you feel like you were at home. I loved going out on the balcony ever morning and taking in the scenery. I'm so glad we stayed here!! We plan on coming back to antigua every year on our anniversary and have to stay at rumrunner. Joanne and Ian (the owners) are wonderful people and made everything a breeze. We are forever grateful that we were able to stay at their lovely villa! If you come to antigua you should stay here...we loved it!!

Felt Just Like Home
From the moment we walked into the Rum Runner villa we felt as if we were in a friend's home. The description is exactly as promised and the views are beautiful. I loved watching the weather change; the clouds come over the mountains, rain and then the sun shining brightly an hour later. And then a beuatiful sunset off the back deck while having our daily rum punch. The villa is comfortable, clean and has everything you need for a vacation away from home. The pantry was even stocked with various spices, coffee filters, cooking oil and tea. The bed in the master bedroom was unbelievable. I never slept so good away from home. The space is plentiful and yet private if you are traveling with friends or family as there is good separation between the rooms. Water pressure was good and hot! The kitchen is stocked with cooking utensils which we did use as we ate in breakfast every morning and had dinner twice while there. Jolly Harbour is perfectly situated and in a gated, safe community. It was quiet when we visited as it was still off season and we lucked out as there were no cruise ships in port the entire week. We had all the beaches to ourselves without the day trippers off the ships clamoring for beach space (OK I used to be one of those people!). If you don't want to venture out you have everything you need right in the community. Jolly Beach is lovely and you have the Castaways bar and restaurant to have lunch and drinks while on the beach. You can also rent beach chairs and umbrellas but note that there is no charge for the chairs if you are staying in Jolly Harbour, umbrellas are $10 per day. There is also a tour desk, watersports rental, supermarket and car rental. Some favorites: Turner's Beach(5 stars) and the bar/restaurant, Ffrye's Beach, Shirley Heights, Nelson Dockyard, Shell's Fish and Chips (a must) and Dennis Cocktail (went twice). Thank you to Joanne and Ian for sharing your beautiful place and Shuna and Ivo for your help during our stay!

Great Villa on a Great IslandGuest comment entered by owner
Great Villa on a Great Island
Our week long stay in Jolly Harbour at the Rumrunner villa was great. The villa was comfortable and had everything we could need. If you don't rent a car definitely rent a golf cart from Wayne . It is a great way to get around . On the South Beach they will rent you chairs and umbrellas if you wish. Take a ride to Dennis's for food and the sunset. Crows Nest and AlPortos are great for dinner , and we liked Melinis for coffee and desert. South Beach is gorgeous , some of the nicest bluest water in the Caribbean. If you are here on a Sunday take a taxi to Shirley Heights the food and entertainment are worth the ride. This is a great villa on a great island. Glad we found it and were able to come here. Thanks Joanne

Will definately be backGuest comment entered by owner
Will definately be back
The apartment was very clean and tidy on arrival, we were very happy with the villa. I have stayed in several other villa's in Jolly and yours was by far the cleanest and most like a home away from home… a credit to you. We will definitely be back in touch to stay again… probably not until this time next year unfortunately.

Great TimeGuest comment entered by owner
Joanne, We had a great time. The weather was great while it was snowing back in Va. I got brown as a berry. Your condo was perfect. We ate out all meals. We really loved Al Porto and ate there a lot as well as a couple others. Alternated between Castway Beach and the Crows Nest . Thanks for sharing your home. I left it in good shape with all towels and rugs washed and dried. Have a great season! Linda

Fantastic Villa in a Great LocationGuest comment entered by owner
Fantastic Villa in a Great Location
We just spent a fantastic week at Villa Rumrunner! Jolly Harbour is a great location with nice beaches, restaurants, bars and a large grocery store. The villa itself is very comfortable, A/C in every room, internet access, a nicely equipped kitchen and a large deck overlooking the water (and the owners' beautiful sailboat!). The two upstairs bedrooms are quite large and both have en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has a balcony which overlooks the water. The downstairs bedroom is a bit small, but has a bunkbed so is perfect for kids - or adults who aren't too picky. While you could easily spend a week just in Jolly Harbour, we rented a car and visited other beaches and sites on the island. Antigua isn't very big but there is lots to see and most of the beaches are nearly deserted. As for the booking, Joanne and Ian always responded quickly to emails and answered all of our questions. Shuna (who manages the villa on-site) was also very helpful and was available to respond to any questions or concerns we might have (although we didn't have any problems during our stay). All in all we had a wonderful week in antigua and we will definitely be returning, hopefully in the near future. If you're considering a visit to antigua, I highly recommend Villa Rumrunner!

Everything we neededGuest comment entered by owner
Everything we needed
Jolly Harbour is a fabulous place...everything you need is right there and not once did it feel unsafe in any way. All the people were wonderful, locals and tourists alike. And the beach! Wow... We found the villa to have everything we needed - very well equipped and great TV watching for the lulls in our days/nights! The villa is in a really great spot because it's kind of out of the way so you don't get as much traffic going by. The villa management folks were very pleasant and even called to check in mid-week. Wayne with Jolly Rentals was awesome about the golf cart arrangements and our taxi driver J.R. from Nice 'n Easy Taxi was amazing. Everything really went off without a hitch. We're so appreciative that we had the opportunity to stay in this lovely home away from home.

Thanks for letting us stay here at Rumrunner
My family and I had an amazing time here in Jolly Harbour ! This villa made us feel at home and had just what we needed inside. The week we were here seemed to fly by so you must enjoy every minute of every day and dont be afraid to leave Jolly Harbour and see the rest of the island it is truly beautiful. Everyone on the island is extremely nice . We leave one week later without a family member who will stay here and attend AUA to pursue her dreams of becoming a Doctor.
