Our villa is located 200m from the quiet and tranquil North Beach at the end of North Finger and offers a peaceful location to take a relaxing holiday. Due to the villa being in a secluded setting we recommend that a car or golf cart is hired and now offer our guests the option of hiring our personal golf cart" which was purchased new in 2014.
The villa has recently been refurbished with a new fully equipped open plan kitchen including a dishwasher and washing machine, large lounge/dining area with cable tv and multi region dvd player. It opens out onto a large terrace with loungers, outside furniture and a gas BBQ and also benefits from views towards the hills and sea which makes it a lovely spot to sit. Downstairs there is also a cloakroom .There are two bedrooms with full en suite bathrooms which have recently been refurbished. The master bedroom opens up onto the covered upstairs terrace with uninterrupted views across the bay and is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the quietness of the location . The second bedroom has two queen size beds with the second queen size bed having a twin bunk above.
The villa is equipped with ceiling fans and new AC in the bedrooms and lounge.
Our golf cart is parked on the drive and there is additional parking for a car at the end of the road.
The villa has been updated over the last couple of years and as we use it as a second home and we have tried to equip it with everything that we require for an enjoyable holiday. This includes a gas BBQ on the terrace and comfortable furnishings.
While staying in Jolly Harbour we enjoy the facilities and atmosphere it offers. We are often found at the side of the swimming pool which has waitress service for food and drink or on North Beach with our daughter.
To help you enjoy your holiday we have included a mobile telephone so that if you need to contact guides for trips or order a takeaway from the delicious Al Porta restaurant.
The accommodation is great. It's clean, well equipped and in a superb position for a relaxing holiday. Everything in the villa worked, it has WiFi and also a mobile phone for those local calls. It's position close to North Beach, around 200 meters, was ideal for a quick quiet swim or to watch the sun go down. We loved the option of two balconies, both with very good furniture, overlooking the water. We did not have a car but hired a buggy and that was great fun, ideal to go to South Beach or shopping or for transport to a local restaurant. Would we go back? Most certainly it's such a delightful villa with everything you need backed up by a good management team and Sally and Mike were a great help before we went.
Clean & tidy with everything we needed - Just as described. Golf cart essential for getting around Jolly. Very little noise from neighbours. 2 mins stroll to one of the quietest & most tranquil beaches in Antigua. Highly recommend.
Townhouse was exactly as pictured on the VRBO website....conveniently located near beaches, restaurants & shopping....there are quite a few restaurants located within the villas complex & a great supermarket that is also in the compound....the townhouse is spacious, clean, well equipped & located on the water in the marina....the outdoor patio space is great...parking is challenging because other tenants park on the street making it difficult to pull into the driveway....we experienced a couple of minor operational problems like the internet didn't work & the TV broke on our last day there but Joann (property manager) was quick to respond....I would highly recommend this property
We really enjoyed our two-week stay here in April and the villa had everything we could expect in a rental property, and more. The location is perfect, right on the water and within a couple of minutes' walk of the quiet North Beach. All the amenities of Jolly Harbour are within a short golf cart drive away. We found it so relaxing just sitting on the patio and watching the world go by! The villa is furnished and equipped to an incredibly high standard and it really felt like we were staying in someone's home, not in a rental property. The new barbeque was perfect for grilling and we did most of our cooking outside - fantastic! The Wi-Fi was fast and reliable and the air conditioning quiet and efficient. Loved it! And owner Sally was a joy to deal with, very quick to respond and answered all our questions effectively. We would highly recommend this property.
We stayed in Jolly Harbour in 2015 in the south finger and this year in the Sun and Sea Villa over on the north finger. We had an amazing experience. The villa is very nicely decorated, and in fantastic shape. The master bedroom is very comfortable and the deck overlooks the water and has a beautiful view. The 2nd bedroom has 2 queens as advertised and a bunk twin. It was perfect for another couple. Some of the most important things to know about this villa are that JoAnne who manages it, is VERY PROMPT with service. We had 2 super minor issues that were both remedied within hours. We would highly recommend this villa and think there are some things that anyone going to this area can find useful!
1) North Finger and this villa is about a mile from the Epicurean and the commercial center. Its a MUST to rent the golf cart that Sally provides. Its a much nicer cart than you will rent over at the commercial center, and for cheaper.
2) HIGHLY SUGGEST RENTING A CAR AS WELL. While Jolly Harbour is amazing, the true joys of Antigua are outside of the complex. If you plan to go to any of the amazing beaches you need a car or will pay a lot for transportation.
3) One of the joys for us about these villas and this one in particular is the fact that you can easily cook your own meals. We usually will grill 3-4 meals and then eat out the rest. The Epicurean is a HIGH END grocery store for an island like Antigua. It is comporable to middle/high end grocery stores in the USA in terms of product selection AND quality of meat. The steaks/chops/chicken is all A++++ quality.
4) The WiFi is really good at this villa. Way better than other areas.
5) This villa uses mostly american outlets which was fantastic as a lot of the other properties you will need converters for
6) They have an amazing cable package for the evenings :)
Very impressed with villa, the standard of equipment, furniture etc.
The location suited us perfectly as we have visited the island several times before and always have a car to travel around, whilst the nearby North Beach was ideal for the early morning dip.
Obviously it was more than big enough for 2 but would not be crowed with a full complement.
If there was one little niggle it was the lack of an instruction book - although there is the app when consulted for wi-fi Instruction all it said was the property has wi-fi and nothing about how to connect. In fact several attempts appeared to fail then the following day it came on stream (after a data charge from my provider).
My point being that some basic instructions would be a great help for the 'unconnected' an insurance for the rest of us.
We will certainly recommend it to others.
This is our 3rd visit to Sun and Sea Villa. Each time the villa has been improved and it's always clean and well looked after. For us it's superb position, bottom end of North Finger, gives everything we need. It's close to North Beach, which is very quiet, but with the new buggy to get about everything is easily reached. The villa has everything you need for a stress free holiday, the local phone is a nice touch. Booking is easy, Sally always gets back to you promptly, and with the manager just around the corner she is able to help with any problems and knows the area well. This year we were pleased to see all the internal doors have been replaced, the staining gives a real Antiguan feel. Can't give this holiday villa a greater recommendation, so much so we have booked again for next year.
Enjoy all that Jolly Harbour has to offer with it's 500 acre gated community. Within the site there are two sandy beaches catering for everyone with the long South Beach which has a beach bar and watersports and the small quiet North Beach.
Jolly Harbour is the home of the Carribean's largest Marina and it's facilities include an 18 hole golf course, water sports, 25m pool, tennis courts, squash court and a fully equipped gym. Within the resort there is an excellent selection of shops selling goods from water sports products to paintings as well as a supermarket, pharmacy and bank.
When it is time to eat you could prepare your food in our fully equiped kitchen and sit on the terrace looking over the water or dine out in one of the restaurants within Jolly harbour.
Although you could spend your whole holiday within the resort Jolly harbour offers a great location to visit the rest of the 365 beaches on the island by car or by getting on a bus from the supermarket or a boat at the marina. With many excursions available from the resort as well as the opportunity to charter boats getting around the island could not be easier.
