About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8). Well-equipped Kitchen, Wifi..5,000 SF

Welcome to Villa Sea Glass a new luxury villa located in exclusive Sugar Ridge on a beautiful hill-side overlooking Jolly Harbour and the crystal waters of the Caribbean Sea. We fell in love with the view and knew it was the perfect spot to build a dream vacation home. Not only does the Villa’s position facing West on a hill provides spectacular 180 degree Views (Sunsets included!), but is also provides the house with wonderful cooling trade winds. Take in the vista and enjoy the Caribbean air while you lounge on one of the 8 comfortable sun beds or splash in the generous plunge pool. Villa Seaglass offers a very generous living space, and the main floor is wheelchair accessible which is very rare for villas on the hill side. You may never want to leave the villa, but if you want to explore Jolly Beach, Valley Church Beach, Coco Bay and Dark wood Beaches are only a 5-8 minute drive away. The Villa boasts 2,700 square feet of indoor living space and 2,200 square feet of terraced outdoor living space. There are lovely en-suite bathrooms in each of the four thoughtfully appointed bedrooms (sleeps 8) and the open-plan living area features three huge sliding glass doors that retract fully into the walls allowing for true indoor/outdoor living at its best. The wonderful Location of Villa Seaglass across the street from Jolly Harbour offers many restaurants, grocery shopping, pharmacy, banking, ice cream/coffee shops and much more on your door step. The capital of Antigua, St. John, is only a 10 minute drive away and the airport is a 20 minute drive from the Villa. Guests at Villa Seaglass are free to use the lovely fully equipped gym at Sugar Ridge Hotel and its beautiful, large pool. Sugar Ridge Hotel also offers an Aveda concept Spa and two yummy restaurants. I could go on and on…. but as they say, a picture tells a thousand words…… we would love to welcome you to Villa Seaglass and a fantastic holiday experience!

About stephanie Haims

We wanted to buy a vacation home on a Caribbean island and did our research. We decided to visit Barbados and Antigua in February 2011 and fell in love with the island of Antigua and its authentic Caribbean charm. We love that its a direct flight from the East Coast of the United States and also a direct flight from the UK. This past summer, we went to North Carolina and had a blast picking out all of the lovely new furnishings that make Villa Sea Glass feel like a welcoming home. Some day, we look forward to spending a lot of our retirement in Antigua and we hope to dock a small sail boat in Jolly Harbour one day. You'll probably notice that the kitchen has everything you need to make a lovely meal. I love to cook and am a professional floral designer.

stephanie Haims purchased this villa in 2012

Why stephanie Haims chose Antigua

We bought our villa based on its location and an AMAZING view just as the developer had broken ground on the site. We had toured Antigua for a full five days prior, seeing dozens of places. Many were lovely, but the magic really happened when we set foot on the site of what is now Villa Seaglass. The proximity to all the amenities at the Sugar Ridge Hotel and Jolly Harbour, plus the piece of mind of being in a gated community with 24 hour security offered eveything we were looking for and more and did I mention..... The Views!

What makes this villa unique

The first thing I do when I wake up at Villa Seaglass is to open all the sliding glass doors and allow the lovely breezes to stir me awake. Then I put on a large pot of coffee using the local beans roasted on island. I like to make extra for an iced coffee in the afternoon. If I'm up before everyone, I'll grab my book and head out to the swinging hammock chair down in the gazebo. The gym at Sugar Ridge is airconditioned and well-equipped so If I'm being 'good' I'll head over there in my golf cart for an early morning work out. After that, we may check out one of the 365 beaches Antigua has to offer or go on a hike or check out some of the shopping in St John. I'm not a big drinker.. but when I'm in Antigua, 4:30 is frozen drink time at Villa Seaglass. The blender is FANTASTIC and I like to pick up local pinapples, bananas or mangoes at one of the many street vendors and wisk them up into a lovely smoothy or more likely a yummy frozen fruit and rum drink. If I'm in the mood to cook, Epicurean, the grocery store right across the street in Jolly Harbour has everything I may require, or we may check out one of the many lovely restaurants near by. So far my favorite is Sheer Rocks, in Coco Bay Resort (7 minute drive) or for something more casual, you can't beat the burger at Castaways down at Jolly Beach. Hint: If you tell the Jolly Beach Security Booth Guard that you're eating at Castaways, you can park right at the beach.... and who wouldn't want to at least get a drink or a nibble at Castaways? It's a great spot right on the beach!

Villa Seaglass is beautifully perched on a hill across the street from Jolly Harbor, in the gated Sugar Ridge Villa community. Check out the lovely local beaches-- Jolly Beach (aprox. 1/2 mile from Villa Seaglass) where you can have a great lunch at Castaways Restaurant or rent a little sail boat or Jet Ski or take a left leaving the Villas and go to Ffreys Beach or Dark Wood Beach each with their own distinct personalities. Whilst at Ffreys make a point of stopping in at Dennis Beach Bar and Restaurant for a tropical drink or lovely fresh food made with a Caribbean flair. It's best to rent a car so you have the freedom to really explore all Antigua has to offer. Like going to Shirley Heights on Sunday nights to take in the sun set, have a nice dinner and enjoy the steel drum music. Don't forget to check out the yachting scene over in English Harbor and whilst there have yummy tapas at 'Trapas' or get some fab Italian food at 'Paparazzi's Restaurant'. Be sure to make a booking so you'll be sure to score a table. I love stopping at the local road-side fruit and vegetable stalls as I'm driving around. The fruit and vegetables are often lovely and much better (and cheaper) than you can buy them at the grocery store. Bring home your lovely tropical fruits and whizz up a delightful frozen drink to enjoy out on the deck!

The Best

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many villas on a number of different islands and we agree that Sea Glass was the best. From the view, to the pool to the villa layout to the interior decorating this villa is the best. We would not hesitate to return.

Takes Your Breath Away!

  • 5 of 5

We do a lot of travelling but this is, without a doubt, one of the best experiences we've had. Stephanie's pictures don't do full justice. The views are breathtaking. The interior of the home is, in every way, in a class by itself. She maintains a high level of maintenance and there's no shortage of the attention this kind of place demands. Bravo Stephanie. It's been a magical stay for the 7 of us. It allowed us to enjoy solitude as well as each other's company in a beautiful setting.

The view is everything it has claimed to be, and more......

  • 4 of 5

Went with a group of four couples for a week. The house was plenty large for all to have some privacy, yet gather for meals and games. The pool and deck was wonderful with a view of the harbor below. Plenty of restaurants nearby with daily trips to Epicurean! Support staff was quick to handle any issues. Can't wait to go back!

Sun-soaked elegance

  • 5 of 5

Villa Seaglass is a beautifully luxurious villa with incredible views over Jolly Harbour.

The check in time was flexible and we were set up in the house in no time. The villa feels very secluded, even though it is situated in the Sugar Ridge gated community.

The kitchen is well stocked with herbs spices and all the cooking utensils you could need. The living space is very generous and we enjoyed family dinners and games in the open plan living space.

The veranda and pool area was perfect for having an improv guitar/ukulele jam session, whilst sipping on home made pina coladas and taking a refreshing dip in the incredible pool.

Just a short walk down the hill you can find Miracles, a tasty Caribbean food restaurant. I recommend the Lobster Roti. The supermarket (The Epicurean) is just a 2 minute drive away in Jolly Harbour, where you can find other amazing places to eat and of course the beautiful Jolly Beach.

Darkwood beach is also a short drive up the road, this beach has a great vibe and is more secluded than Jolly beach.

Villa Seaglass really is pure luxury. We each had an enormous comfortable bed to come back to after long days in the sun.

I would highly recommend staying at this well positioned and luxurious villa.

Perfection on Antigua

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sea Glass exceeded our expectations in every way. You really must trust me on this as I have spent years working in hospitality and usually prefer a 5 star hotel. Kid you not, this place delivers! There is not a single amenity that has been overlooked. Stephanie( the owner) was gracious and accommodating from the very beginning. The staff at Sugar Ridge are all terrific and there is a contact person, Pascale who no matter how many times I called picked up immediately and was able to answer my question straight away.

We never made it out of Villa Sea Glass until day 3 because we didn't need to leave. The grocery store Epicurean is at the bottom of the hill and you can easily take a cab back up the hill with your groceries. One day I walked as I didn't have so many and it was a good workout....made me think about New Year's Resolutions for sure. We are a family of 5 with 3 adult daughters. Three of the bedrooms are in the main part of the house and the fourth is a bit more private which was perfect when a boyfriend arrived for a few nights. The kitchen is outfitted with every possible utensil and accoutrement necessary. We arrived to a beautifully decorated Christmas tree which speaks to the thoughtfulness of the owner. There was also some really yummy beer in the fridge. The setting is perfection. The beds are beyond comfortable.....all of them. The overall decor is clean and refreshing without being kitsch. Everything is so well thought out. You are never going to want to leave.

As far as restaurants, I can only recommend two.... Sheer Rocks and Jacquie O's...we went to both of these at least twice. And I think they may be even better for a late lunch and then back to Sea Glass for sunset. Do not waste your time or your $ at Curtain Bluff....and I am going to leave it at that. Catherine's Cafe Plage was also a disappointment for me. We did not rent a car and were glad we didn't because we got to know Glenmore and his son Keanu who took us wherever we needed to go. Sea Glass is perfect for families as well as friend get togethers and would be fantastic for a girls/guys getaway. Lucky you if you get to stay here!
