About the property

A Newly Build 4 Bedroom, 4,5 Bathrooms With infinity Pool nd amazing view

A newly built 4 bedrooms, 4,5 bathrooms’ villa (you can rent is as a 2 or 3 or 4 bedroom at different price level. In any case the Villa will be rented only to one party at a time. The unrented rooms will remain locked)with a private pool and an amazing view, Villa Fair Winds is a spectacular contemporary four bedrooms/5 bathrooms’ Caribbean villa situated in the middle of a tropical garden in the renowned Sugar Ridge Resort, on Antigua’s West Coast. It is built on a commanding hill position but only footsteps away from Jolly Harbour Marina and Antigua’s most famous beaches.

Finished in January 2016, the Villa is nested in a quite and reserved corner of Sugar Ridge yet very close to restaurants, Marina, shops, supermarket and golf club, all reachable even on foot with a few minutes’ walk. The villa interiors, rich of extravagant oriental touches, include all Italian travertine floors, professional Smeg and Whirlpool appliances, sophisticated Balinese furniture and some famous artists’ repro painting such as Gaugin, Picasso, Van Gogh and Matisse.

The view from all rooms, terrace and infinity pool is simply stunning and unforgettable. The five sisters, Jolly Harbour and some of Antigua’s best beaches such as Jolly Beach, Ffryers Beach and Cocos Beach are your holidays daily view at Villa Fair Winds. The villa orientation privileges your privacy from the other Sugar Ridge constructions and a constant breeze will always contribute in making your days and nights cool and confortable.

And there’s more: challenge yourself to make a real pizza by the pool with our professional, made in Italy, wood oven or just grab some tomatoes and basil from the backyard and make your perfect caprese salad. Pick some of our papayas, mangos, avocados all available from the trees around the villa or season your meals with the many herbs and spices grown in the backyard.

You can enjoy the marvelous Antiguan sunsets drinking a cocktail in the open gazebo, looking over at the islands or Redonda, St. Kitts and Nevis. And if you don’t feel like coocking, one of Antigua’s cult restaurant, the “Carmichael” is just in front of you, a 5 minutes’ walk away.

In addition, access to the Sugar Ridge fully equipped gym is included in your package.

Upon your arrival, our staff will pick you up at the airport and take you to Villa Fair Winds in less than 20 minutes’ drive. Private cleaner, 24/7 security at the main gate, beach towels and other amenities are all part of your package for a special and unforgettable holiday.

The view from all rooms and from three of the bathrooms is simply stunning. The entire Jolly Harbour water complex and the Island of Redonda, St. Kitts and Nevis are situated in front of the Villa, just like a 3D mega screen. From Villa Fair Winds beaches, restaurants and supermarket are at a few minutes’ walking distance, while privacy is assured being in one of the Sugar Ridge complex most private spots.

We have just returned from a one week stay at Villa Fair Winds in Antigua, a great place in a truly beautiful Caribbean spot.

Villa Fair Winds is an excellent villa, well furnished, spacious, clean, with an extremely well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, fantastic infinity pool overlooking the harbour and an amazing view.

The villa is surrounded by a thick vegetation, wonderful trees and flowers…. It’s just like bathing in colours!

Supermarket, shops and restaurants are only within 5 minute walking distance. A vast choice of stunning white sandy beaches is also available in the vicinity.

At the end of the holiday, one of our best so far, it was really hard to say good-bye. See you again soon Villa Fair Winds!

Gorgeous views!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fair Winds in Antigua!


The views from the property are spectacular. Truly incredible.

The house is comfortable and fairly new.

Great layout to the house with 2 1/2 bedrooms below for the kids. One note is that you do have to walk OUTSIDE to get from downstairs bedrooms to upstairs bedrooms.

The property is stunning with lovely gardens.

Location in Sugar Hill was great, as we used the gym and pool and yoga classes frequently.

Really nice to be so close to a grocery store as it takes quite a bit of time to drive from place to place in Antigua.


If you have a cat allergy, this is not the home for you. The two stray cats live on the patio and sleep on top of the main dining room table, all of the chairs and patio furniture. There is cat hair everywhere.

For a house at this price point, there should be plenty of napkins, paper towels, trash bags and toilet paper. We ran out of all of it within days.

You do hear traffic from the busy roads when sitting outside. I suspect this is an issue staying on most of Jolly Harbor.

The house is a 10+ minute walk to the beach along very busy streets with no shoulder so also should consider that.

Owner's Response: Hello Mary Ann I am happy you have enjoyed your holiday in Antigua and feel sorry for the cat issue. After you left we, together with other villa owners have taken the few cats who were visiting the villa to the vet for sterilization and then gave them to adoption down at Jolly Harbour. Most of them were females so the remaining males in the area left as well. As a result, the entire Sugar Ridge villas area is free of cats, I have not seen one around our villa for over 2 weeks now.

Amazing stay at Villa Fair Winds!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was absolutely stunning. I already miss waking up to the beautiful view of Jolly Harbor and the surrounding area. We were two families traveling together for the first time with 4 adults and 4 kids (ages of 9 and 11) for a week in February. This villa fit all our needs. The large living and kitchen space and all 4 bedrooms having their own bathroom allowed us not to be cramped on top of each other. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the necessities and even more. We were greeted by the property manager that went over the property and there was even some starter items for us in the refrigerator like bottled water, bottle of wine, milk, and juice. The close proximity to the store allowed us to easily run out and get things in a pinch. The epicurean market had everything you need and we easily made breakfast, packed lunches for the day, and prepared dinner in the villa. We also explored some of the restaurants on the island and most of them are accessible by foot but just remember there is a steep hill up to the villa.

The rental included transportation to and from the villa so we just rented a car for the time in between. We used Drive-a-matic car rental and they dropped/picked up the cars free of charge! They were wonderful. When the ladies dropped off the cars they gave us a map and went over all the places we should see during our stay. We ended up going to one or two different beaches per day. They are all unique but we especially loved **half moon bay** and valley church. We went driving all over the island and it was quite the adventure. Make sure not to miss Nelson's Dockyard and the famous Sunday night party at Shirley Heights. We ended up reserving a ride to the Sunday night festivities to Shirley Heights through the rental property company because of the limited parking, night driving, and we wanted to enjoy the famous rum punch.

The owner of the the villa and property management company were very easy to work with and responded to all my emails with questions answered. I highly recommend this place during your stay in Antigua. Great views in a prime location!

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

From April 23rd I stayed at Villa Fair Winds for three weeks. It was not easy to book for such a long period since the villa seemed to be rented out at all times. Last year I looked over many villas in the area and concluded that this was the best option for our group. A lot of space, both indoor and outdoor, an impressive view and a dominant position with constant cool breeze, total security inside the Sugar Ridge Resort, vicinity to wonderful beaches, restaurants, shops, supermarket, all at walking distance.

We enjoyed the very big garden with countless plant species and fruit trees. We enjoyed picking up our own bananas, papayas and mangos. The garden is so large that we could take walks at sunset without actually leaving the property.

The villa is brand new, built under the highest standard, luxury furnished but with a homey touch. We really felt at home. The kitchen is supplied with high-end appliances and furnishings.

What we also liked is that the villa is arranged in two complete independent floors. For the three weeks we occupied the main floor as a 2 adult couples. The floor includes two bedroom suites with outstanding marble bathrooms, living room, open kitchen and a large patio with an infinity pool overlooking the Jolly Harbour Marina and the beach area.

During the holiday, our respective kids came to visit us, four in total. They were accommodated on the garden floor which includes another two bedroom suites and a nice studio. On the outside, a large flat garden and a gazebo with a fantastic view over the coast, made their stay more than pleasant. With so much space available the privacy, even when all the eight of us were in, was unlimited, not to mention the additional space in the backyard and in the nicely developed tropical garden that surrounds the villa.

It was the real perfect long holiday and we can’t wait to be back next year in the same period

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home, and an ideal base to enjoy Antigua. The view from the property is absolutely amazing, and the terrace is designed so it has sun all day but at least some shade for all but about 2 hours. It directly faces the wonderful Caribbean sunsets. The infinity pool is fantastic - big enough for two kids to have a lot of fun in. The house is very well equipped, with high end equipment and lovely art, and has a very open and airy feel. The kitchen and cooking facilities are excellent and comprehensive. The house is on two levels, with the two main ensuite bedrooms, living room and kitchen, terrace and pool etc all upstairs; the lower level has two smaller bedrooms and is accessible via outside paths.

Location-wise, this is excellent. For our needs it was perfect - the house is in a gated complex, and is just a short walk (albeit on quite a steep hill) to an excellent supermarket and several nice restaurants, and a short drive to many attractive beaches. It has easy access to the organized tours from Jolly Harbour.

The owner was very attentive and helpful, and even took the time to organize a local place for our daughter to practice for a piano recital!

We were absolutely delighted with the whole experience. Very highly recommended.
