Jolly Harbour house description

As the owners private home for six months of every year, this luxurious, recently decorated, three double bedroom house, each bedroom en-suite, is furnished and equipped to a much higher standard than the usual letting property. Its' position at the base of the favoured South Finger brings all the facilities of Jolly Harbour within easy walking distance, so a car is not essential. The newly installed pool, outside bar, BBQ and dock provide fun at home. Separate patio seating areas allow private moments. Our spacious fully equipped kitchen encourages entertaining.
Ideal for three couples, or three generations of a family.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Jolly Harbour Marina Village is a gated, secure marina & leisure community with a large supermarket and many restaurants and bars. The mile long white sand beach (2 mins walk) provides safe bathing in milky warm turquoise water.

                  Our favourite restaurant is Melinis, 5 mins walk, and the West Point Bar is a meeting place for 'yachties' before and after the regular Saturday afternoon Yacht races. Crew are always wanted! Put your name on the board.

                  Car and taxi hire is available in JH. Historic Nelsons Dockyard at English Harbour is a must-see, and the famous Sunday evening parties on Shirley Heights , watching the sun set to the sound of the Halcyon Steel Band (all welcome, small entry fee) should not be missed. Ziplining through the forest, or swimming with stingrays, are other must-do activities while in Antigua.

                  Duty free shopping for luxury items, Colombian gemstones, and local handicrafts in St John's is fun, have a cold drink on Hemingway's balcony and watch the crowds below.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I live in Lymington UK with my partner Budgie. We are both retired (me from IBM, him from Surgery) and spend six months of each year in England, and six months in our lovely home in Antigua (to avoid the English winter!) We are 'yachties' and have a small sailing boat in Antigua. We also love gardening and enjoy finding interesting plants from the Caribbean to plant in our Jolly Harbour garden. (A local gardener takes care of the garden when we are away). We also play golf, and collect art. An eclectic mixture of local and international paintings are displayed on the walls of Jolly Lodge.

                  Why the Owner Chose Jolly Harbour:
                  For eight years we spent every winter in New Zealand. The journey took three days each way. During a return trip from NZ we visited Jolly Harbour, and had more fun in six days than in six months in England! We now find direct flights to and from Antigua from UK, USA and Canada easy and stress-free. We love the climate, the best in the World, and the friendly Antiguan people. Jolly Harbour is full of happy like-minded people all here to enjoy themselves. We love the proximity to a wonderful beach, excellent restaurants and friendly bars. Everything needed for a relaxing holiday is in the JH complex, a car is not needed unless one wishes to explore the Island, with its' famous Georgian Nelson's Dockyard, Falmouth with fabulous superyachts, & the exciting island capital city, St John's.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We bought this property because it has three double bedrooms, unlike most properties in Jolly Harbour with only two bedrooms. The corner location gave us a private garden and the opportunity to build a side extension and heated swimming pool within the secure fenced area of the property. The private position and location of the house allows a cool breeze to blow through day and night; we have never had to use air conditioning in the ground floor rooms, and rarely in the bedrooms. Ceiling fans in the rooms, and on the waterfront patio, keep us cool and relaxed.
