We had such a great time in Antigua with our two children (10 & 5 y/o). Janine and Joanna were super helpful and sorted out our taxi to/from the airport as well as a golf buggy to get around the area which was a lot of fun! (Note: If you want to go explore the island, you will need a car as the golf buggy is only allowed around Jolly Harbour). Villa was spotless and very comfortable. Felt like a home away from home. The main beach is spectacular and just a 5-10 min. buggy ride. We spent most of our days there. There is another small beach a 5 min walk away which is quieter. Beach is a little rougher with shells and silty in the water, but still very nice. Locals are super friendly and laid back. They will approach you to offer beach chairs and tours, but if you decline, they wish you a great day and that's it, not like some other islands. Only thing is that food is very expensive, either to eat in or eat out. If you had a car and were able to go into town, then possibly you could find better prices, but the Epicurian in Jolly Harbour is your only choice for groceries in the harbour. Other than that we had a wonderful time and would definitely visit again!
Thank you for taking time out to write a review .. so glad you and your family had an enjoyable stay at our Villa and you loved Antigua !
We welcome you back any time .
Our week in Antigua was everything we hoped for....and so much more! It was truly magic!
Extremely disrupting renovations next door
Villa is as pictured, comfortable. Somewhat dated, basic necessities somewhat scarce (no garbage bags, spices or cooking oils) so be prepared to buy all upon arrival. Situated on the north finger so 30 minute walk from closest amenities (groceries, bank, restaurant, etc). Pool pictured is a communal pool also 30 min. walk. Really recommend rental of a golf cart to get around, or a car to explore the island. Beach at 5 minute walk is ok but rough. Nicer beach is 40 minute walk. Our favorite beaches were half moon bay and rendez-vous beach.
Neighbors are doing MAJOR renovations (jackhammer and all). Workers informed us this will be ongoing for next several months. Owner had informed us, but not that it would be this bad. Impossible to have a conversation inside the villa. This apartment should NOT be rented out during this time of renovations! Water issues in Jolly Harbor at our time of visit. Pool closed and water not suitable for drinking (had to buy water).
Comfortable villa, extremely loud renovations
Villa is as pictured, dated but clean and comfortable and very spacious. Prepare to buy everything for daily usage (spices, oils, garbage bags, toilet paper, etc.). Situated on the north finger, 5 minute walk to small beach, but otherwise 30 minute walk to Jolly Harbor center (stores, etc.), and 40 minute walk to nicer Jolly Harbor beach so car or golf cart useful to get around. Pool advertised in the posting is actually the community pool so 30 minutes walk. Jolly Harbor is currently experiencing water issues so pool is closed and drinking water not suitable for drinking. Neighbors are undergoing MAJOR renovations, daily 9-4 weekdays (jackhammer and all). According to workers, will be ongoing for at least a few more months. Owner had advised us prior to booking that some renovations were happening but not to this extent (could not talk/ even scream to hear ourselves talk while in the villa). This villa should definitely NOT be rented during the time of these renovations! Owner would not compensate in any way.
Disappointing to receive a review outlining the issues that were unfortunately out of our hands regarding the water situation at Jolly Harbour due to unforeseen circumstances on the Island resulting in CDAL having to close the Community Pool , which we have noted in our advertisement of Villa, guests were informed at time of booking that a refurbishment was taking place in Villa next to ours and we ourselves were given very little notice of this .
Nice location on a lovely island
All the necessary facilities in a lovely location with nice views. Lovely beach with great sunsets just a 5 min walk.
Thank you for a positive review , we are glad you had a lovely time in Antigua ... it is a beautiful Island ...
welcome back anytime
Would have been for the building work
The villa was great. When all the small problems were sorted. But I think we should have been informed about the very loud building work next door . Very disappointed we were not told. The owner new about it be fore we paid.
At the time of booking the property next door was for sale , unfortunately this was sold and owners decided to proceed with refurbishment they did not consult us when this would start ! Having been there ourselves at Christmas work was not at weekends and regularly finished at 4 , noise was kept to a minimum.
The villa is located within the Jolly Harbour Marina complex which lies to the west of Antigua. The resort has two stunning beaches/large outdoor swimming pool,with 18 hole golf course and beautiful landscaped areas to stroll around.
24hr on site security, sight seeing trips via Helicopter from Jolly Harbour or boat trips around the Island. Hire bikes to get around or use the fun golf buggies, everything is on hand for a perfect relaxing holiday. There is castaways beach bar/restaurants, a large well stocked supermarket, Banks, laundry mat /pharmacy, and internet cafe at Jolly Harbour too.
Car hire/taxis will take you to the capital St John's where you can enjoy Duty Free shopping enjoy the local culture and visit the quayside where the cruise ships come in or just relax in a bar and experience the laid back lifestyle of the Caribbean.
