About Marc Garvey

We have been Caribbean lovers since we first took our children there in the early ‘80’s instead of Disneyland. Neither of our children or we have never made it to Disneyland, but we’ve visited just about every island in the beautiful Caribbean. We have been looking the last few years and had narrowed it down to Antigua and one other island. Antigua won hands down! It was the fabulous beaches, the overly friendly Antiguans, the spectacular views, the security of one of the lowest crime rates, the value of the restaurants and handmade purchases, the cleanliness of the island and homely feel of the little towns and villages, the golf courses and the endless activities available…you know where we’re going, we found paradise! A ton of research ensued and endless search for the dream villa ended in Sugar Ridge. Our second trip with in six months we had knew we found home at Villa Sunset and you will too. Certainly the best and most spectacular views of any villa we inspected!

Marc Garvey purchased this villa in 2013

Why Marc Garvey chose Jolly Harbour

One of the best points of it all is location, location, and location. Jolly Harbor has it all and it’s at the bottom of the hill. We have stayed in different areas of the island and by far Jolly Harbor takes the cake. Beaches, restaurants, endless water sports, grocery and liquor stores, banks, rental cars, cafes, and nightlife are only a minute away.

What makes this villa unique

Sugar Ridge is a luxury boutique hotel at our beck and call, which was a big selling point for us. You wouldn’t know it’s right next to the villa, but the use of the fitness center, excellent restaurants and facilities are just about a 5-minute walk or 2-minute drive away make for convenience and ease during your vacation. Security 24 hours, paved roads and the elegance of it all, especially our Antiguan friends, makes you feel like you’re someone special.

A Hilltop Jewel

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as advertised; it is truly luxurious and lovely! The layout wasn't really clear to me from the photos and the place is even prettier than the photos.

At the driveway level, where there are gorgeous bougainvillia and a convenient hose for sandy feet, there is a gate leading into the home. On this lower level you have a laundry room and a bedroom suite. This bedroom has the same layout and amenities as the upstairs suites (same size/bathroom/quality of furniture and a gorgeous green view--just not of the harbour).

You then climb the beautiful stairs and land in a patio space that is covered (nice when the daily, brief rains pop up) and connects multiple areas. You have a new grill and dining table, two chaises off to the back with soft wind chimes and cute snails that appear late in the day. The other side of the patio features what you came for--that amazing pool and view of the harbour. Stunning! There is also a half-bath in this area, which is very convenient.

Off of this patio you can step into the common area which has the kitchen/dining/living room space or into the second bedroom suite. It has gorgeous linens and furniture, just like downstairs, and a lovely view.

From the patio you can access what is arguably the master bedroom (though they really are all the same) by walking through the common area or behind the common area on the cute sidewalk that runs next to the yard.

If you access the master by going through the living room area, you come out the far side to a covered portico that has two chairs and small little table. This bedroom has the full view of the harbour.

Every space has windows with shutters to let in the breeze. In January, locals felt it was cold, but it was around 82F each day and 72F at night. Good to have a light sweater but extremely comfortable. We only used the AC when sleeping.

The pool was a little chilly (Aside from my husband, no one went in all the way) but it's so pretty, who cares? There is a covered lounge space off the living room/next to the pool where we would have breakfast and sip our coffee or curl up with a book after a day at the beach.

We had some issues with management. Be sure they tell you, as promised in the paperwork, the days the cleaning staff will arrive. Also ask about construction as it's a developing neighborhood. Skip Sugar Ridge restaurant just down the hill.

Couldn't ask for a more beautiful home! Easy to get to all of the beaches, restaurants, etc

The Best of the Best, Incredible Villa, Incredible View, Incredible Time!

  • 5 of 5

Where to Start, well the view, at the villa you're ten times closer than the pictures show and it is just incredible, I mean incredible. Arrival was in the afternoon and the management team was here to meet us. Loved the little snacks and drinks that were supplied after a long day, how thoughtful. Sunset was immaculate with that airy Caribbean flare, 3 separate suites and 6 sitting areas, art decor and actually more than we ever expected.

We are beach people and went exploring every day to Dark Wood, Pigeon, Half Moon Bay and then the trek to Rendezvous. All the beaches were pretty clean and no one bothering you selling stuff. We also explored the roadside shacks for lunch and fruit to take back to the villa, the barbecue chicken was great! There were great restaurants all over in Jolly Harbor. Best deal lobster at Al Porto, best 5 star was Jacqui O's, best beach food Dark Wood and best Italian was Basilico. Lots of fresh fish and veggies and never had a bad meal. We also did the Wadadli cruise which included snorkeling and a nice Caribbean feast, lots of fun.

We always seemed to be hanging at the villa to watch the sunset nightly after a day or sports and traveling. Sooooo relaxing and comfortable with the beautiful breezes keeping you cool. Never needed the air conditioning at all. The little things made our stay, from the local CD's for music, beach chairs and towels, first aid kit was used, well appointed kitchen and homey feel.

We had used the grill and had bought groceries at the market across the street.

Sunset is a relaxing, perfectly situated villa with incredible views. We loved it and had a vacation we'll never forget. Thank you Garvey's we will be back!

The four seasons can not even compete!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sunset is by far the most exquisite villa in Jolly Harbour and all of Antigua. Truely exceptional is to put my expierence here mildly. The attention to detail to all the offered amenities made this vacation nothing short of a once in a lifetime trip. The views are breath taking no matter what room in the villa you stay in. I recommend Villa Sunset to anyone and everyone. The customer service is top rated! The Villa is close to everything just a minute or two of a drive from the best beaches and cuisine the island has to offer. Even the four seasons can’t compete to this beautiful piece of paradise. Thank you once again to Villa Sunset!

Could not ask for anything more.

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places we have stayed in Antigua this was the most enjoyable. The house layout made you feel like you were always outside enjoying that great view no matter where you were. We enjoyed being by the pool so much we barely left the property to enjoy all Antigua has to offer.

The other striking feature was how private it was. We were there for Christmas and despite all of the other villas being full we didn’t notice anyone. The design of each villa and their locations provides that feeling.

The kitchen is very well appointed (everything we needed was there), the BBQ worked better than my own at home and the wifi with the cable tv provided everything and more we could possibly need.

We will be back.

You may never want to leave Villa Sunset but perhaps you venture out to explore what the island has to offer, Jolly Harbour is right across the street. The bustling Jolly Harbour Marina can take you on various boating excursions, scuba diving, snorkeling and sport fishing trips. There are beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants, and bars. The Marina complex even offers an 18-hole golf course, tennis and squash courts.

In Jolly Harbour is where you will find many fabulous restaurants, grocery shopping, pharmacy, banking, ice cream and coffee shops. Further down the road about 5-8 minutes you will find Darkwood beach, Turners beach, Valley Church beach, and Coco bay.

The capital of Antigua, St. John, is only a 10-minute drive away where you will find local markets of delicious food, restaurants and lots of shopping.

The airport is approximately a 20-minute drive from the villa.

You may want to explore the heritage of Antigua at Nelson Dockyard and stunning views from the local gathering at Shirley Heights on Sundays, furthermore, enjoy the excitement of Carnival, Cricket and Sailing week.

We love sailing and scuba diving. Morning walks on the beach searching for beach glass then stopping in some of the charming beach huts for a late lunch or early dinners, like at Jackie O’s. Exploring the island and ending up at Shirley Heights. Buying fresh fish or lobster at the marina 10 minutes down the road. Dark Wood beach, snorkeling the reefs right off the coastline or Turners beach and Jolly beach only minutes away. A special dinner at Sheer Rock, you’ll never forget. And not to mention cocktails at the local beach bars, all minutes from Sunset. Hang with the locals at weekly fish fries, or head to St. Johns for local markets abundant with fresh fruits and veggies. Feel like exploring, hop in your car and try dining at Blue Water, Le Bistro or Cecelia’s. Be casual at Cloggy’s or the Mad Mongoose after the beach or island trek. Or head back at Villa Sunset with a glass of wine with stunning panoramic views. These are some of our favorites. Enjoy!
