We had a lovely stay at Tessa and John's villa. It had literally everything that we could have needed for our visit - clearly it's a much loved home as well as a holiday let. Everything provided was of good quality: it was just a pleasant place to be. It was peaceful (except the tree frogs!), but close enough to the centre of everything: we could be at the shops/restaurants in 5 minutes by golf cart, but also it was 5 minutes' walk to the beach/Castaways (NB you don't have to pay for beach chairs - just say you're staying at the villa - and it's $10 US for the day for an umbrella).
Tessa was really helpful in booking us taxis from the airport, showing us around the house, and left us the basics to get us started. They also arranged for a golf cart to be waiting at the villa for us when we arrived.
Jenny looks after the house when the owners aren't there, and she is lovely and super-helpful. We had one issue that couldn't be resolved (honestly, not for want of trying by anyone involved) which didn't hugely inconvenience us. Jenny was brilliant at keeping us informed and was so sweet and apologetic. We appreciated the bottle of bubbly to say sorry for the small inconvenience. Jenny also found us the perfect excursion (Creole Cruises, highly recommended!) and had everything booked and arranged for us.
We'd very much recommend this lovely house to all, and thanks so much to Tessa and John for letting us stay.
We spent 10 days in Jolly Harbour and found it to be the best location on the island!
When we arrived we were met by Jenny who showed us around the apartment and told us everything we needed to know about Jolly & Antigua. The apartment was very clean and well kept and came equipped with everything we needed including beach coolers to take lunch/drinks down to the beach.
The balcony was fantastic for morning sunshine whilst eating breakfast and hanging out in the evenings playing cards and the BBQ was used almost everyday!
We had family also staying on the island over in English Harbour and spent our time half and half but I have to say you cant beat Jolly Beach! Absolutely beautiful, we were there at the start of "off season" and so the beach was also peaceful and not too busy.
We had the best time in Antigua and I know will be back there one day soon and wouldn't hesitate to stay in Jolly Harbour again and this apartment!
