About Mark and Teresa Ayre
We are Mark and Teresa Ayre from the UK. Our villa is primarily our own holiday home, comfortably furnished and equipped for our family's needs. The property is regularly maintained and most recently the first floor has been fully renovated to reflect both our needs as a family and for the comfort of our guests. Both bedrooms now have beautifully tiled, modern, ensuite shower rooms and and the entire flooring has been replaced with matching Italian tiling. Over the last two yxears we have installed a beautiful ceramic tiled deck and have invested in up to date air conditioning throughout the villa. New sofas and deck furniture were added last year. Ever aware of our guests needs, we have recently had our own WiFi connection installed, so guests will no longer have to use the hotspots relied upon by most of the rental villas. Unlimited WiFi is free to all guests subject to technical availability. Due to work/family commitments we are only able to visit the island two or three times a year, so we have decided to offer the villa for holiday rental so that others can enjoy Antigua at a reasonable cost.
Mark and Teresa Ayre purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Mark and Teresa Ayre chose Jolly Harbour
Our villa is ideally situated for a relaxing holiday. Close to both the beach and the central square ( containing the swimming pool, tennis courts, Marina, restaurants and supermarket) and it is simple to pop back and forth throughout the day, allowing you to split your days between sea , activities, shopping and siesta with ease. Jolly Harbour is a great base to allow you to explore the rest of the island, although with one of the best beaches in Antigua on your doorstep, many guests do not venture far! We take pride in offering a good service to our guests and communicate regularly with you in the run up to your holiday. The combination of fully involved owners and the professionalism of the HomeAway /Expedia holiday platform, offers our guests the best of both worlds. A personalised holiday experience with the security of booking through an internationally known organisation. As we live in the UK it is really important to have a trusted Antiguan management company available to you throughout your stay in the Island. James Richards, his wife Roxann and their team of Housekeeping and Maintenance staff have been looking after our guests for well over ten years.

Nice place, nice beach. The interiorspecially the baths and kitchen need an update. Bath not be by a professional, cheap plastic and toilette downstairs useable for children. No covers for the beach chairs on the terrace and only 2 for 4 chairs. Equipment in the kitchen should be added. For example a salad spinner is missing. slove and microwave are not state of the art. My rating depends on the 5 starts i expected by ratings of others. It was okay not bad but also not 5 stars. We had a nice time. Thank you Terasa.
Thank you for your review and I’m glad that you got home safely at this difficult time. I am also pleased to hear that you had a lovely holiday.
It may be useful to understand that the 5* reviews given to us by most guests are reflective of our service and the accurate representation of the property in our listing and brochure. In their and our opinion, our holiday home offers a good self catering base at a reasonable price. It does however, not claim to have a 5* hotel rating and I am sorry that certain aspects did not live up to your expectations.
Couldn't be nicer!
We came for a week 02/19 to 02/26. Our 2nd trip here and everything was excellent! We had a glitch with HBK on a golf cart we rented in September for this week, but that was rectified and our week was wonderful, but too short. Thanks to Mark and Teresa for squeezing us in between two weeks!

Always a pleasure to have you stay with us.
We look forward to hearing from you again soon.
Perfect Beach Location
What a great place. The Villa was perfect for our 2 well stay. The absolutely breath taking beach is literally à few minutes walk down the Lane. Check in and out was seamless and the area has a good balance of delicious restaurant food and groceries if you choose to eat in. The Villa kitchen didn't lack a thing. We brought UK power converter foot for our US phone chargers and some Christmas lights. Security is awesome all over the Island and especially in the Villa neighborhood. Walking after dark was never a concern. A wonderful trip!
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad you had a great time and we look forward to hearing from you again soon!
Villa lovely and clean, well equipped and perfect location.
Thank you for your lovely review.
Very good Property in convenient location
Everything you could need for a great holiday. The agents managing the property arranged for us to be met at the airport which made the check-in straightforward. The Villa has a good sized Lounge/Dining/kitchen area downstairs with comfortable settees. The Kitchen is well equipped and the air conditioning was very good. Outside there was a terrace with table, chairs and sunbeds. There were two good sized bedrooms upstairs both air conditioned and each with en-suite bathrooms.
The Villa was within a few minutes walk of the beach and there were two good bars each providing free sunbeds and umbrellas, if you bought a drink. A very good Supermarket was located about 10 minutes walk away and there were a range of excellent restaurants nearby.
Golf buggies were available for hire but not really necessary if you were reasonably fit.
There were a number of shops and services available where you could hire cars, arrange trips on boats or guided tours around the Island. Everything you needed was in a few minutes walk and there was quite a good bus service into St. Johns. However I'd avoid that town when the liners are in. There were three in when I went there and I wished I hadn't gone in.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you back next year!
