Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Antigua - Milk & Honey
4 Bed Central A/C Villa, 2 Kings with ensuites, 2 Twins, Spacious Lounge/Diner

Our single story villa in Harbour View is moments from Jolly Harbour and the beach. 2 King-size beds both with en suites, 2 twins, and a family bathroom. All rooms have ceiling fans. Central A/C, with cable TV, & Wi-Fi. Fully kitted kitchen with dish-washer, washing machine/drier and American sized fridge freezer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster & ample cooking utensils and pans.

Fully furnished with towels/linens provided, and a weekly maid service, which can be as frequent as daily if required. The property benefits from having its own private pool and sundeck, with outside dining furniture, sun loungers, and gas barbecue.

The nearest supermarket selling an extensive range of western food is a 5 minute walk, as are the facilities of Jolly Harbour. The nearest beach is a 10 minute walk.

You will be met on arrival at the airport at St. Johns, with transfers arranged to/from the villa, an approximate 25 minute minute journey by road, with a welcome pack waiting for you on arrival

We currently live in the UK, having spent a career mostly working and living overseas. We bought this property in 2008 to provide a vacation home for ourselves and our two daughters, and to provide an extended vacation home during my retirement.

Phil Holland purchased this villa in 2008

The property comprises 1600 square feet internally, a 300 square foot sun verandha overlooking the 10 times 5 metre pool, which is contained within a timber deck area.

With 1600 square feet of internal living area, the property is ideal for extended vacations. It is configured to enable two families of four to share identical bedrooms, ie, with two master bedrooms, both with kingsize beds, ensuites, and wardrobes, dressers. Similarly there are two identical twin rooms, which share a shower room. It is therefore ideal for two families of four to share a vacation.

The property is fully equipped to facilitate self catering, with Denby crockery, Diners cutlery, and Circulon pans. It has all the necessary facilities, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, plus other kitchen items such as blender, coffee maker, and more than adequate kitchen utensils to make self catering a pleasure, rather than a chore!

Of course, if self catering is not your thing, then you are a five minute walk from the 6 nearest restaurants.

The lounge is furnished to be comfortable, with a leather sofa set.

The property is located on a short hardcore road, off the main road entrance to Jolly Harbour and overlooks a freshwater lake, with breeding birds, and feeding pelicans. It is quiet, and removed from the hustle and bustle of Jolly Harbour, but is only a 5 minute walk away from the Jolly Harbour supermarket, restaurants etc.

Perfect for the Best Beaches

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 08-Aug-2012
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2012
This review is late due to catching up with things back home , but hope that people find this useful.

First of all let me say that this villa is as described , and the photos do not lie. We were only a party of 2 adults and 1 toddler and we rattled around in this large place, it has 4 large bedrooms 3 bathrooms and a large lounge with kitchen dinner. The standard of furnishing is of a high standard, the kitchen is well equipped and has a large selection of utensils etc.

Outdoor area is great, we loved the deck area and our little man loved the pool (this pool is not deep but is really great if you have young kids) plenty of outdoor seats and recliners and a good bbq .

Villa is close to the Jolly Harbor complex with its shops and bank
and of course the Jolly Harbor beach. Valley Church , Darkwood & Turners beaches are all within a very short distance from the villa.

Phil the owner is a dream to rent from. He was very quick in responding to all queries and as for customer service he delayed his own occupation of the villa to allow us a late departure that is going beyond the extra mile.

Would I recommend staying here well that's a resounding yes , in fact we are so impressed we will be returning in February.

We wish that every villa owner was as accommodating as Phil
Owner's Response: Great to hear you enjoyed your stay in Antigua at our villa so much. I think you'll find your stay in February even better now that you have become so familiar with the area, and its great beaches and restaurants.
Phil

Relaxing times

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 12-Jul-2012

My wife and I stayed two weeks at the Milk & Honey Villa very close to Jolly Harbour and we had a great time. This was time spent for us to relax and catch up on reading, while taking a dip in the pool when it got too hot!

Many pluses:
- walking distance to Jolly Harbour and all its facilities including a well stocked supermarket (only four minutes by foot, we timed it!), though this feels a world apart from where the villa is! As an aside, we went to Jolly Harbour and rented a mini-boat tour for two with a guide to the local reef to do some snorkeling (highly recommended)
- the house has all the amenities one would need! Rooms, towels, appliances, TV (we wanted to watch Euro 2012), etc.
- the house itself is in excellent condition
- fast reliable wifi. Yes, we are on vacation, but we enjoy catching up on our email, reading our local e-newspaper, etc.
- we did not use them much, but the property managers are very close by and happy to help you with whatever your needs may be. They are easily accessible by email to help with reservations, tours, bookings and can answer any question you may have about the other areas on the island.

minor quibbles (I repeat, minor. We had a great relaxing time here)
- a few places around the deck were a bit off, but since we notified the property folks as we left, it has surely been fixed by now.

- less private than what we are used to. There are villas on either side, and quite close to the property, but lucky for us one was empty basically the entire two weeks whereas the other was only occupied for one week. That being said, much more quiet than the offerings in Jolly Harbour itself!

- not a big deal for us, but the power did go out a few times, but never more than a few hours and always came back on without us having to discuss with the property managers.
- the pool is quite shallow, no diving at all.
- not sure if it is doable, (though we've seen it in other rentals we've stayed at), but access to a phone would be welcome. Where we are from, the roaming charges probably would have cost more than the villa rental, so we didn't bring our own phones. Just a suggestion

Overall, this is a nice house in a nice area within walking distance to a number of facilities (restaurant, bar, supermarket, taxis, etc.).

We would recommend this to anyone really. We were only two, but given the number of bedrooms (not to mention the 3 bathrooms), it can accommodate many more!
Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback Simon, really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Milk & Honey. Will definately look into your phone suggestion.
And yes, the work on the deck has been completed.
Phil

Milk and honey is perfect to stay in antigua! the villa has everything, I love cooking and i found all i need to prepare every type of meals.
there is nothing better than diving in swimming pool after waking up, or than having a bbq in good company!
the bedrooms are almost perfect with towels and everything you need! the living room is comfortable! and the washingmachine works perfectly!
me and my friends (we were six adults) had a really good time there.
We stayed 8 nights. after that i need to move to another accommodation, because i remained alone for some days and i stayed in jolly harbour where is full of mosquitos (milk and honey is perfect because is also "mosquitos free!")
Owner's Response: David,

Lovely Family Villa

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 22-May-2012
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2012
Had a GREAT time in Antigua!

Stayed here with for my dad's birthday with immediate and extended family and there was more than enough space.

The villa is fully equipped with more or less everything you can think of. We made ourselves at home here, the villa has a real homely feel.

Anyone thinking of staying here wanting to explore the island, as we did, I would definitely recommend a car. If you search around enough you can get a good deal!

Had a couple issues, although the management company rectified those promptly. Thanks Guys. And an extra thanks to the "Maintenance Guy" .... Absolute Star!

And Thank you Phil, we had the family holiday our family desperately needed.
Owner's Response: Cynthia,
Thanks for your feedback, great that you enjoyed staying at our Villa so much. I'll let the "Maintenance Guy" you appreciated his efforts!

Wonderful stay at Milk and Honey in Antigua

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 24-Apr-2012
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2012
We recently returned from a wonderful two-week stay at the Milk and Honey villa in Antigua. We found the accommodation to provide more than enough space for our group of 6 adults and the villa was well stocked with plenty of dishes, cutlery, towels, linen, etc. The villa is in good condition, very clean and comfortable and the owner and property manager were pleasant to deal with.

The location of the villa itself is a bit removed from the centre of Jolly Harbour, allowing for a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Jolly Harbour amenities, grocery store, beach, restaurants etc are a quick 10 minute walk away, however I recommend having access to a car so that you can explore the many beautiful beaches on the island. The trek across the island to beautiful Half Moon Bay was one of the highlights of our trip, as was our lobster lunch at OJ's Beach Bar and Restaurant! I also recommend grabbing lunch (chicken roti was my favourite) at Grace Before Meals if you visit Nelson's Dockyard.

Overall we are very satisfied with our stay at Milk and Honey and would return again on our next trip to Antigua.
Owner's Response: Great to hear you enjoyed your visit to Antigua, and that our Villa was everything you were expecting

Well Named Villa

  • Review Submitted: 05-Feb-2012
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2012
A lovely villa, clean, airy and nicely decorated. Faces east/west so gets the sun all day. Very well equipped, with thoughtful touches like coolboxes, chairs and li-los for use on the beach.

There is also free wi-fi so you can keep in touch with your non-holiday life if you need to.
It comfortably fits 8, although I had the luxury of being there with just one other person and there are plenty of dishware, towels etc to cope with a large party.
There is also an ipod dock.
There is a lovely seating/dining area outside and pretty solar lighting for the evening.
I would recommend a car (4X4 as Antiguan roads are badly potholed) as it's the easiest way to explore the island, although the very best beaches are close by.
The only reason it didn't get a 5 is that the pool is neither long or deep enough for a proper swim but that is not a drawback for everybody
A taxi from and to the airport is included in the price.

An Absolutely Brilliant Stay

  • Review Submitted: 14-Dec-2011
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2011
My husband, my 15 month old daughter and I stayed at Milk and Honey in November 2011. The weather was fantastic.
I just wanted to thank you again for an absolutely brilliant stay at your villa. It was very comfortable and spacious. It had all the appliances and kitchen equipment etc we needed (and more!). The wireless was extremely helpful as we were able to keep in touch with my father-in-law who fell ill while we were away.
The villa is in a quiet location but within easy walking distance to restaurants and the supermarket. We only hired a car for 2 days and stayed for 2 weeks.
The staff who manage the villa were very helpful and were also very prompt at resolving any problems which arose.
I would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
Thanks again Phil.

A Great Place To Holiday

  • Review Submitted: 25-Nov-2011
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2011
We have had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at Milk & Honey. We have found it a spacious and comfortable vacation home.
It is very peaceful at all times and the mornings are especially a delight.It is great to sit and look across the lake to see the birds playing and hunting.
Having the pool is a bonus and it is a short walk/drive to the beach and facilities at Jolly Harbour.
A great place to holiday

Very Well Organised

  • Review Submitted: 25-Nov-2011
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2011
Very well organised--taxi driver waiting at airport, and rep waiting at the villa. Everyone very friendly and any queries dealt with efficiently and timely. Connie the cleaner is a total star!!
Would have appreciated a safe for passports, money etc. Bit of a surprise that the pool isn't deeper, Good service, good villa and all very straightforward.

Milk and Honey

It couldn't be better named!


We had a wonderful holiday in Antigua staying at Milk and Honey. The villa is fab, lovely deck and pool, large and airy rooms and comfortable beds. Its really well equipped, from the towels and bedding to the large TV and kitchenware to the outside furniture and gas BBQ.
Its close enough to the harbour and bars and restaurants, but still manages to be secluded and relaxing.
Its in a brilliant location if you want to chill, sail, dive or dine. (we did them all)

Highly recommend this villa. NB: the photos don't do it justice
