Great location

It was our first time in Antigua and we thouroughly enjoyed our stay. This modern, spacious, open concept villa met all our needs. We arrived to clean unit with a fridge stocked with the basics to get us through the first day. Approximately a 3 minute walk to Jolly beach and Cataways restaurant. Beach chairs could be rented for 5$/day each. We mentioned we frequently purchased meals and drinks at castaways and they provided us with free chairs on most days the cruise ship clients weren't there. About a10 minute walk to Epicurian grocery store and other restaurants. The plunge pool was great for the kids...and us too when we wanted a little more quiet time than at the communal pool.

We rented a car which gave us the opportunity to truly visit the island at our pace. Driving can be a little tricky, on the left side of the road and almost no traffic rules. We went to St-Johns a few times, discovered Darkwood and Turner's beach just a 10 minute car drive from the villa. We also went to Half Moon bay, a beautiful secluded beach with big waves. Shirley Heights on sunday nights (get there for 4:30 PM) is a fun filled evening of reggae/steel band music and jerk BBQ chicken, the view of the habour is stunning at sunset.
We really loved the Catamaran tour around the island and the Zip lining in the tropical forrest.

Lastly, people in Antigua are friendly and we felt very safe here. Joy and Milton were very friendly and accomodating, answered all our questions. Antigua a great island for a little R&R but if you like adventure you will also find pleanty to do here. We will surely be back in the future and would recommend this unit to our friends and family.

Wonderful stay for our family

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 27-Feb-2014

This was my first time to Antigua and more importantly, the first time I had ever used a private property management company instead of one of the larger travel sites. I am sooo glad I found this villa!! I made the right decision - the villa was clean, the managers were exceptional, the location was ideal, and we were provided with everything we might need as vacationers. This property was great for a couple, but the two master bedroom design made it an exceptional value for four people. This location was one of the best in Jolly Harbor and it was an easy walk to the store and right across the street from the beach.

All that said..Jolly Harbor is a resort style area which is also clean and appeared very safe to me. The security staff were helpful when possible and always extremely friendly. My husband and I walked it end to end and beyond, and although I like visiting new places, I would definitely consider staying here again because of the location and the attentiveness of the managers. The restaurants were good, and exactly what you would expect from a resort type area - pricey/on the slow side, and definitely make a reservation if you come during the high season, but know this ahead of time and all will be well. You definitely don't need a car, but we had a great time driving to see the island (not me - my husband was brave enough to drive on the left side) but I thought the more local type beach bars close by had even better food. The whole trip was easy from booking until the cab ride to the airport, and I highly recommend this property!

Finally - Joy and Milton, thank you for the personal service, for your time in entertaining all of our questions, and for a lovely time on your island! Missy
Owner's Response: Thank you for your very nice review, Missy!

It was lovely to meet you all and it would be great to see you back here again one day...!

Beautiful place to stay

  • Review Submitted: 27-Feb-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
This was my first time to Antigua, and more importantly my first time using a private rental company instead of a big name travel site. I am sooo glad I booked this villa. Although wary of doing something new, I noted that every review of this property and its managers were good - so I went for it. Joy and Milton made this trip easy and my family had a wonderful vacation. The villa was clean, had two master bedrooms, was in the closest proximity to the beach, and they supplied everything we may have needed as vacationers. I typically enjoy trying new places, but this rental rental experience (the managers, value, and location) was definitely one that I consider repeating.

All that said, I enjoyed the Jolly Harbor area. Very safe and all the security personnel were very friendly. My husband and I walked from end to end and beyond and we loved it. The restaurants were good, (pricey, and a little slow, but exactly what you would expect from a resort-type area - be prepared and you'll enjoy it - and make a reservation if in the high season). I liked some of the local places better, but only had a car for a short time. A car is definitely not necessary here - the villa is in one of the best locations at Jolly Harbor and groceries/beach are very quick walk. However, if you are a good driver, its great to go out (on the left side of the road) to see the island and try some of the excellent beach restaurants nearby.

Joy - thank you so much for a wonderful vacation. We appreciated your time for entertaining all of our questions, and for the lovely place we were privileged to stay at.

Another wonderful holiday

We have been visiting Jolly Harbour since 2001 and decided this year to spoil ourselves with a visit to Joy and Milton's villa, we were not disappointed
We had arranged with Joy to be collected at the airport and, arrived to a lovely welcome from Joy. The villa was exactly as seen on the website and Joy had even put some essential provisions in the fridge for our first night
We used a golf cart, again arranged by Joy, to move around Jolly Harbour. Highlights this year included trying new restaurant Miracles, best lobster on island, regular trip to Nelson's Dockyard and trying rum punches at Castaways bar
We would recommend Joy and Milton's villa to anyone who wants a relaxing and carefree holiday in a lovely villa on a great island
Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review, Nick!

It was so nice to meet you both - we appreciate your very kind comments about Joy, and we would love to see you back here again one day!

A Slice Of Heaven

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 30-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2013
My stay at Milton & Joys “ Slice of Heaven” November 2nd -16th started off as a week stay and turned into two weeks of pure heaven.

Our driver Denley was waiting for us which was organized by Joy. Upon, our arrival at the villa, Joy greeted us and gave us a tour of the luxury contemporary villa, which was everything advertised and more. The fridge was stocked with the basics which was greatly appreciated. The furniture and decor makes the villa warm and welcoming and the deck and plunge pool complete the theme.

The beach is a 2 minute walk and it was stunning, you want to find Mervin who will take care of your chair and umbrella for you. Most of my time was spent on the beach or in the ocean the weather was outstanding. The restaurant on the beach “Castaways” is really good, the food is fresh, the drinks are great and the staff very friendly. Ask for Daisy she will take care of you.

The local supermarket is about a 10 minute walk and well stocked, with fruits, vegetables, meat, drinks alcoholic and non. You must also check out Jolly Castle Hotel Restaurant and Superette, great for local fruits and traditional food.

Did a one day excursion to Barbuda....all i can say is breath taking!!!! and a must do. I suggest you do the tour which includes your ferry ride, tour of the caves and bird sanctuary lunch and time on the beach. Ask for Levi John for your tour guide.

Went into St Johns, a few times and visited the local markets, shops, restaurants and museum. I recommend Denley as your taxi driver, while in Antigua he is professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about the island.

As for restaurant, there is the crows nest right in Jolly Harbour, Miracles just up the road as you enter the harbour, great curry goat. There are great restaurants outside of the Harbour, ask Joy and Milton to recommend based on what you like.

Finally, you must check out Joys art gallery called “ Art At The Ridge” which is a 15 minute walk. The gallery is quaint and showcases local artist work and crafts. I purchased a a great piece and the prices are very reasonably

Your stay at the villa, will make you feel like you are at home. Joy and Milton James, are wonderful people who will bend over backwards to ensure your stay in Antigua is perfect. Their kindness starts from the first e-mail you send to the time you are leaving to return home. All i can say is their luxury contemporary villa is “a Slice of Heaven” and I'll be returning next year.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Carlotta!

We have passed your kind comments on to Denley, our taxi driver extraordinaire – he is exactly as you say, which is why we use him too!

We look forward to welcoming you back to Antigua again!

Kind regards
