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 Jolly Harbour
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!

Returning to paradise!
What greater compliment can I pay than to return to the same great house for a second visit! We had other choices, but couldn't wait to get back to Sea Glass Villa. The owner and management company is very hands on and took care of all our needs. The house has everything you can need or want, and the view is still one of the most spectacular ones I have experienced on vacation.
best VRBO yet
Beautiful villa with great views! This villa has everything you could possibly need including coolers and beach chairs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
A Perfect Stay
Villa Sea Glass offers all you need for a fantastic vacation. The villa itself is gorgeously decorated on the inside with a large open floor plan and high end appliances. It also offers lots of living area outside from which to take in the amazing, wide spanning view. The landscaping is beautiful. Great sleeping beds, lots of towels and a lot of extra little things the owner has included make your stay as easy as possible. Having access to the resort's amenities is a big plus as well! We walked over almost every morning to the gym and had massages and facial treatments at the Aveda spa. We also enjoyed a great band one night with lots of dancing. There are many beaches close-by and some good restaurants. I cannot say enough about the owner's communication and response time. She really cares about the villa and her guests' stay! You will not be disappointed.
Absolutely fantastic!! We are spoiled an this exceeded our expectations!
This property and villa management from start to finish was superior. This was our first time to this beautiful island and we loved it, we cannot wait to return. We traveled around the island an believe that Jolly Harbour is the best with many great beaches an services to utilize. We also looked for villa that might be better for our next trip and Sea Glass blew them away, we will return and will only stay at Sea Glass!!
A vacation home of the highest sort!!
My family and I had the very best time ever at Sea Glass Villa — my second stay here. I cannot wait to return once again. It has all the luxury to offer that I could ever (reasonably!) want, and provided the perfect home base for all the adventures the family enjoyed in the area. Such a wonderful paradise!! Kudos to the owners and management team!!!
What a wonderful place to stay for a holiday. Magnificent views who could ask for more. Only issue negative point l would make that the linen and towels need updating.
Thanks so much for your kind review. I shall double back with my housekeeping team as our linen closet is stocked full of new linens. I bring new linens and towels to Sea Glass every 6 months. So your review prompts me to ask Natasha and Avril to make double sure that they retire any linens/towels and pull out the new ones! Thanks again! Stephanie Haims, owner Villa Sea Glass
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!
