Hi Elton & Jayne, Thank you very much for letting us enjoy your villa, it was everything we needed and more! The villa itself was clean and well equipped as your other guests have mentioned. The washing machine was definitely a bonus. We cooked most of our meals in the villa and enjoyed them overlooking the water from the patio. We actually did not rent a golf cart and found all the walking to be very enjoyable. It was around 20 minutes to the Epicurean and 25 to Castaways and South Beach. We went swimming every day at the North beach, which was beautiful and even ventured down the beach around the point to find more secluded beaches. We tried to fit in as many activities as we could while we were there. The catamaran trip around the island was beautiful and well worth the $120. Although the snorkeling spot they chose wasn't the best, we still would recommend the trip. For great snorkeling we went to Cades Reef where we saw an abundance of beautiful fish and even a stingray! Thank you for letting us have the use of your golf clubs. We played a round of golf at the Jolly Harbour course which was beautiful as well. Also, we were able to pay a small fee to use the gym facilities at Jolly Harbour Golf Course. We did rent a car for three days from the Hertz in Jolly Harbour for $35/ day plus a $20 driver’s license. The car allowed us the freedom to explore the island. We went to the Saturday morning food market in St. John to stock up on fresh produce and ventured from Devil's bridge to Nelson's Dockyard, all worth visiting. The two weeks we spent at Jolly Harbour was the most relaxing holiday we have had yet. Thanks again.

Perfect spot for a quiet vacation
Perfect spot for a quiet vacation
We truly enjoyed staying at this property. Well-appointed with everything we needed and more, this villa was the perfect starting point to explore the island and offered a quiet oasis to come home to in the evening. We appreciated how so many of the residents in Jolly Harbor live in Antigua full-time and were able to offer friendly advice about the island. It was wonderful staying in a real community and not in a big, impersonal resort. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone traveling to Antigua.

Great VacationGuest comment entered by owner
The villa is beautifully located on the waters edge at Jolly Harbour a 5 minute walk from North beach approximately 15mins to the nearest restaurant and 30 minutes to the main shopping centre. The villa is getting on a little bit, but is well maintained, painted and clean. Everything that is supposed to work, works. The description was accurate and we would most certainly consider returning for another visit. A car or electric buggy is desirable. Elton and Jane were very helpful in all our dealings with them.

We enjoyed the Jolly Harbour Vila as a comfortable base from which to explore the western side of the island. The numerous beaches are beautiful, though the more private or remote beaches do require a car. Every thing we needed was available. We enjoyed the deck in the mornings. The nearby italian restaurant was very good. There are several other restaurants within walking distance in the resort area. The grocery, though resembling nothing very local, had everything we needed and was convenient. Otherwise, there are allot of fruit stands to stop at while out and about in the car. Thank You for the nice facilities. j&j

Owner response: Thank you for your comments. We really appreciate the opportunity to host you on your vacation.
Perfect I agree with everything that has been said below and I would like to add my thanks to you for the opportunity to make myself at home in your villa. (The shower head was repaired, by the way.) The fact that the patio faces east was a bonus for me as sunrise is my favourite time of the day. I was there during a full moon and was blessed with the opportunity of sitting on the patio and watching it rise over the hills as the tree frogs chirped pleasantly all around. I thank you for recommending a car rental as there is so much to see on the island. It also allows one to meet the locals when one gets lost. I met many polite and friendly Antiguans in this manner. Aside from the Sunday fun-filled evening barbecue at Shirley Heights and the fascinating history of Nelson's Dockyard your guests must visit little-known Valley Church Beach which is about a five minute drive south of Jolly Harbour. The beach is pristine, there are plenty of shady palm trees nearby and the Nest Bar & Restaurant serves a deep fried coconut shrimp dish with a home made sauce that is to die for. I would also recommend any one of the Adventure Antigua boat tours. I took the full day eXtreme tour which circumnavigates the whole island with several stops that you cannot get to by car, including a swim in Rendezvous Bay, snorkelling near English Harbour and feeding the fish at Stingray City. A tasty hot lunch and refreshments are served on a quiet secluded beach. The crew will also provide you with a wealth of unique information about the island. My ten days were not enough and I would gladly return at your villa. It's perfect.

Owner response: Thank you for your comments. Antigua is a wonderful island that offers a variety of activities to take advantage of. Jolly Harbour is central to all the choices, which makes our villa location ideal in taking advantage of those opportunities.
Dear Elton, I wanted to apologize for taking so long to send you this letter, but it seems like time has slipped quickly by once we returned from our vacation in Antigua. My boyfriend, Rob, and I stayed at your villa in late September and had an absolutely wonderful time. We found your home to be exactly what we were looking for and we couldn’t have been more pleased when we arrived. The villa was clean, spacious, modern, and we felt very comfortable and safe throughout our stay. We enjoyed making breakfast each morning in the kitchen before the start of our day, and felt right at home from the minute we arrived. We particularly enjoyed the location of the villa and found Jolly Harbor to be an ideal spot. It was lovely looking out onto the water from your patio at night and seeing the harbor lit up so beautifully…..and, I could go on forever about how truly, genuinely amazing Antigua is, as well as it’s beaches, and the people who reside there! We made so many wonderful memories. I was remiss in not writing to you sooner, but wanted to make sure you knew that we appreciate all the time and courtesy you offered in answering our many questions prior to our visit, and most importantly, that you have a lovely home, and we were delighted to have the opportunity to stay there during our vacation. Thank you again Elton! We look forward to our next opportunity to visit Antigua, and hopefully have the chance to stay at your villa once again! Best Regards, K & R

Antigua was Awesome
Hi Elton. Just getting to my personal e-mail as I was swamped getting back to work this week. Antigua was awesome! We are definitely going back! Your place was well appointed and comfortable. I especially enjoyed sitting on your patio drinking tea in the mornings. Jolly Harbour was perfect for us and I found it great to run in the morning on the island just across from your Villa. We toured the island by jeep and had a lot of fun. As you suggested, we made it to English and Falmouth Harbours as well as Shirley Heights. How beautiful! This is a must for any visitor. We did not make the barbeque on Sunday night as we were not sure we wanted to do that drive at night. There were so many beaches to explore. We did some snorkelling off Long Bay, made the Zip Line Tour, and enjoyed cocktails at sundown at Castaways. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your home. We had a fabulous time and cannot wait to return! Warm Regards, J & T

Dear Elton, Our vacation is over and we are sad to be back in the real world again. We had a great time. Everything about your villa was great. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils, pans, etc. and we enjoyed eating most of our meals outside on the porch. The new furniture was very comfortable as were the beds. We were pleased you had a picture of your family on the cover of one of the booklets. What a beautiful group! We certainly relaxed and got a lot of reading in. It is nice and quiet in your area. Thank you for renting your home away from home to us. Fondly, Lois

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada and currently live in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. We are adjusting to being empty-nesters as our 4 daughters are on their own now. We bought this property as we knew a number of people who lived here year round and felt confident in the safety and security of the island and resort. Antiguans are very friendly and kind-hearted. We eventually plan to spend our winters here and use Jolly Harbour as our base to cruise the Caribbean. We really enjoy the opportunity to share our little piece of paradise with you.
Why the Owner Chose St. Mary:
We love Antigua and the friendly laid back lifestyle. Jolly Harbour is the only resort of its kind in the Caribbean where you can moor your boat right outside your patio. We also enjoy golf and can take advantage of the 18 hole championship course along with the terrific community atmosphere. Jolly Harbour has everything you need from a fully stocked grocery store to several restaurants and bars along with shops, banking facilities, an internet cafe and rental companies.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The North Beach is only 2 tenths of a mile away, a 5 minute walk from our villa. It is very quiet and secluded. If you want more action the South Beach has Castaways Beach Bar along with beach vendors. Our villa faces east so you can enjoy the morning sun with your coffee overlooking the marina from the patio, then enjoy the shade in the afternoon. Our villa has been completely remodelled to make it even more comfortable and up to date. From a new kitchen to oversized sliding glass doors to the patio you will enjoy your time here.
