Saint Mary House Rental Photos and Description

This beautiful home with its lovely tropical garden is surrounded by breathtaking vistas of the ocean and nearby hills. Relax to the sight and sounds of the ocean waves as they make their way to the shore, and on moon lit nights you can enjoy the stunning beauty of the moonlight as it shimmers across the ocean.

Olivette is well-appointed with 2 bathrooms with shower and tub combination; a fully equipped kitchen with a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, cookware, bakeware, glassware and utensils; a laundry room with a washing machine, washtub, iron and ironing board.

About Judith Josiah-Martin

This home was built by our parents as a retirement property and over the years we have entertained many friends and family who came to share the warmth and beauty of this property. For many persons, this home has been a peaceful retreat and a home away from home. Most of our family lives on the east coast of the US but occasionally we return to this island oasis for rest and relaxation.

Judith Josiah-Martin purchased this house in 2002

Why Judith Josiah-Martin chose Antigua

This home was built on land that has been in our family for generations. It is located on the southern part of the island which is characteristically green and lush and home to several pristine beaches. Nearby facilities offer snorkeling and shopping.

What makes this house unique

This home offers ocean views all around, the opportunity to fall asleep to the lullaby of the waves, stunning sunsets, air conditioned rooms, attentive owners and excellent service.

Doesn't get much better....

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property at a prime, quiet location. Beautiful views and close to many wonderful beaches. Lenard was extremely helpful, positive and made us feel very welcome upon our check in. He even gave us cell phones to use while on the island to contact him with any questions. This property has a beautiful balcony overlooking Carlisle Bay and if you're looking for an excellent place to relax and enjoy the wonderful island of Antigua this is the place to stay. Highly, highly recommended. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could.

OMG!!!! From the moment we arrived at the airport right up to our depature back at the airport, I can honestly say this was truly an awesome vacation stay! The Josiah's had Brittany meet us and bring us to the home. They also helped with the referral and arrangements of a rental car from Koconuts Car Rental in order for us to get around the island (even though we were quite contented with enjoying the BEAUTIFUL scenery and tranquility of Olivette). Everyone was SUPER NICE and SO VERY HELPFUL!!!! I can only say, "I'll see you all on my next trip back!" (with or without my sister - LOL) GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY AND THEIR HOME!!!!!

Absolutely Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage and were blown away! Not only is it roomy with excellent decor, but it's also private and has a view and property grounds to just die for! I cannot say enough great things about the overall property and Leonard the property manager was a true pleasure to work with! Will definitely be back to stay at Olivette!

A Glimpse of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, the reviews are great! You can read them and be impressed.

Yes, the pictures look amazing and there's lots of them. You can google this and google that in trying to decide if this place is right for you.

What you won't have until you arrive here is a real understanding of how beautiful this house, this property and this parish and indeed, this entire island really is. You won't feel the wind keeping the air alive or hear it play off the sound of the water, visible from everywhere. First timers won't have a sense of how friendly the people of Antigua are towards each other and to visitors until you arrive. Experience that for a few days and you feel like you have just been invited into a family with a long and proud history.

Is this house or this Island right for you? We were convinced it was for us in much less than a week and are returning next year in what may be the start of a long term relationship with Antigua and all its wonders!

An exceptionally good place for vacation in Antigua

  • 5 of 5

The Olivette vacation property is strategically located on the south shore of Antigua far enough from the tourist crowds and close enough to the beautiful beaches and mountain trails. The nearest rocky beach lies at the gates of the property and provides an ample opportunity for swimming or snorkeling in the picturesque Carlisle Bay or in the Morris Bay, just around a rocky promontory. For less adventurous swimmers, there are several sandy beaches within a short drive or walk. The trail to the Signal Hill crowned with lemon grass fields, arguably, the most beautiful place in Antigua, begins at the Walling's Dam within a 5 min drive from the house. The house sits on a bluff and permanent breezes provide a pleasant relief of the heat and mosquitoes at night, making air conditioners rather irrelevant. Sweeping views of the sea from the patio and balconies are magnificent; the property is meticulously maintained by a gardener and boasts a variety of thriving tropical plants. All amenities including plumbing, fans, washing machines, split air conditioners, WiFi, and TV function perfectly, the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and groceries. The house is thoughtfully planned and is nicely furnished. The owners provide two local cell phones and dispatch an escort to meet guests at the airport. The maintenance team led by Lenard is efficient, unobtrusive, and available at any time when the need arises. In summary, this vacation property provides the comfort of a posh resort for a fraction of the price. I would recommend it without reservations.

Car: recommended

This property is a solo property (not a resort type property, so there are no services onsite) but we are in the tourism belt of Antigua where there are many attractions and services within a 10-15 minute drive.

Due to the close proximity to Jolly Harbor most service (ATM/Bank, Shopping, Groceries, Car Rentals, Posts, Pharmacy, Fitness Center, Golf, Restaurants, Boat Rentals, Marina, Sailing etc.) can be acquired there.

Day passes to the nearby (5 minutes drive) to 5-Star Hotels of Curtain Bluff and Carlisle Bay Resorts can provide similar resort type services.

Island tours and excursions (Safari tours, kayaking, canoeing, zip line canopy, rainforest tours, biking tours, etc. can be acquired from local vendors and the owners would love to make some recommendations that will make your visit all you want it to be.
