The villas we usually book were too expensive, but the cost here was very reasonable. The booking experience was extremely straightforward and our host, Jenny, was very helpful. Hamilton House Apartment 4 is on the ground floor of a large property with 3 others. The garden is well maintained, with a full-size outdoor pool with a sundeck, canopy and loungers. The accommodation is spacious, fully equipped and relatively clean. There are air conditioning units in each room, fast internet, cable TV, as well as a large cooker, dishwasher and washing machine. These apartments are 10 years old, but most of the fixtures fittings and appliances are near their end of life, with signs of age, wear-and-tear and corrosion. Some parts would benefit from a deep clean, but the overall standard was perfectly acceptable and clean bedding and towels are provided. There is no backup generator, but we only had one short power cut during two weeks. There is also an outdoor veranda and barbecue area exclusive to the apartment. It is very close to the Jolly Harbour, with a small, well stocked Epicurean supermarket. However we still did our main shopping at the Epicurean near St Johns, as it is much bigger. There are several very lovely beaches nearby, such Valley Church beach, and Coco beach with its excellent snorkelling. There are many more fantastic beaches just slightly further afield, such as Darkwood, Deep Bay and Hawskbill. There are plenty of restaurants, although we did not try any of them because one of my family suffers from serious food allergies. During our stay, we also hired a 19ft self drive motorboat from Paradise Boats for a day and we had a fantastic time visiting Five islands, Cades reef, Hermitage beach and Rendevous Bay. We were saw a shark, turtle and sting ray during this trip, as well as plenty of beautiful fish! It is best to have some previous motor boat experience though, as it was choppy in some places the day we went, plus the reef is extremely shallow. At this time of year, the weather was a wetter and cloudier than earlier in the year. However it was still lovely with plenty of warm sunshine on many days. The sea water was particularly warm, the hottest we remember it! If you are looking for good value, well equipped, spacious self-catering accommodation set in one of the best locations on the island, then Hamilton House Apartments are an ideal choice.

We enjoyed having ensuite bathrooms for each bedroom. The pool was a decent size and essential for cooling off in the heat! Other reviews mention that the villa is close to the road and noisy, but I don't agree. It is close to the road but there is not a lot of traffic. We live in a quiet rural location and didn't find the villa's location unduly noisy at all. It is within walking distance of some gorgeous beaches, we visited Jolly beach and Valley Church bay. The local supermarket is a 10 minute walk and well stocked although expensive. We really enjoyed our holiday.
