About Marc Garvey

We have been Caribbean lovers since we first took our children there in the early ‘80’s instead of Disneyland. Neither of our children or we have never made it to Disneyland, but we’ve visited just about every island in the beautiful Caribbean. We have been looking the last few years and had narrowed it down to Antigua and one other island. Antigua won hands down! It was the fabulous beaches, the overly friendly Antiguans, the spectacular views, the security of one of the lowest crime rates, the value of the restaurants and handmade purchases, the cleanliness of the island and homely feel of the little towns and villages, the golf courses and the endless activities available…you know where we’re going, we found paradise! A ton of research ensued and endless search for the dream villa ended in Sugar Ridge. Our second trip with in six months we had knew we found home at Villa Sunset and you will too. Certainly the best and most spectacular views of any villa we inspected!

Marc Garvey purchased this villa in 2013

Why Marc Garvey chose Jolly Harbour

One of the best points of it all is location, location, and location. Jolly Harbor has it all and it’s at the bottom of the hill. We have stayed in different areas of the island and by far Jolly Harbor takes the cake. Beaches, restaurants, endless water sports, grocery and liquor stores, banks, rental cars, cafes, and nightlife are only a minute away.

What makes this villa unique

Sugar Ridge is a luxury boutique hotel at our beck and call, which was a big selling point for us. You wouldn’t know it’s right next to the villa, but the use of the fitness center, excellent restaurants and facilities are just about a 5-minute walk or 2-minute drive away make for convenience and ease during your vacation. Security 24 hours, paved roads and the elegance of it all, especially our Antiguan friends, makes you feel like you’re someone special.

Better than perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of three couples that stayed at Villa Sunset for 9 days. All of us have stayed in several vacation rentals, and it was an easy consensus that Villa Sunset is the most fabulous place we’ve ever stayed. The pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed - we’re a group that will venture out during the day, and cook in for breakfast and dinner. Pool, sunsets, morning views, layout of the villa with three masters - all added up to a better than perfect experience. We never lacked for anything, and the response from owners and management was immediate when we contacted them. The attention to detail on everything in the villa was superb, housekeeping was great, we just cannot say enough about this special place. Our group, who rarely will revisit a spot (there’s so many places to see!!) is in agreement that we definitely want to return to Villa Sunset - for longer next time! Thanks so much for providing us with the better than perfect vacation.

Sunsets and Sunshine

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Villa Sunset. The villa was all we had hoped it would be and so much more. And while it’s been said before, the pictures you see when viewing the property is what you see when you enter the home. The views are breathtaking and we would try to make it a point to get back to the villa in time to enjoy the sunsets with a glass of wine. Our girls loved the infinity pool in the morning before heading to the beach and when we’d get back in the evening. Renting a car was convenient but be sure to give yourself a day or two to get accustomed to driving on the island. Using your own Google Maps vs. the rental car GPS is recommended.

We visited Devil’s Bridge which was provided some beautiful pictures, I only wished we brought a few eggs along, lol. Our favorite beach to spend our days was Darkwood. We found the hospitality there more pleasant than Valley Church and the Beach Bar and Grill service to be substantially quicker.

Horseback riding wat SpringHill Equestrian was a great experience especially since we hadn’t been swimming with our horses in the past.

Our days were filled with beautiful sunshine, perfect temperatures and late night tropical showers. Who could ask for more?

We loved Antigua and loved our stay at Villa Sunset. We’d also like to thank the Garvey’s for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home and we hope to be back!

Far Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Villa was so much better than I expected, and I have really, really high expectations when I travel! Of course, the views, as you can see from the photos, are amazing, and the sunsets didn't disappoint. If you're wishing for aquamarine water and quiet, long stretches of beach, Antigua is an ideal destination. What I was surprised by, however, was the place itself. The bedrooms are far more beautiful in person, and the pictures really don't do them justice. In addition to being surprised by that, I was impressed with: the kitchen (it's better stocked than any airbnb, villa, hotel, etc that I have EVER stayed in), the indoor gathering area (it's larger and more accommodating than the photos convey), the backyard (yes, there's a beautiful, lush yard with a seating area in the back), the bathrooms (they're beautiful and plentiful), the proximity to the gym (it's top-notch and literally down the street), the supply of beach equipment (towels, chairs, coolers, etc), and, perhaps most importantly, the kindness, support, and quick-responsiveness of the on-island contacts (they were amazing and at our service). My single, only recommendation is to rent a car, for there are so many beaches to see and you don't want to be held down to a taxi!

Still the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Garvey's place and it was even better than last time! We could have never left the place and stared at the view all day, every day, it's just that beautiful. Antigua is now our favorite place to visit and it's largely because of this place. It's in the perfect location that gives you a great store right near by, the best beaches to visit on the island are near here, as well as the best restaurants. We hope to return as soon as possible!

The Best of the Best, Incredible Villa, Incredible View, Incredible Time!

  • 5 of 5

Where to Start, well the view, at the villa you're ten times closer than the pictures show and it is just incredible, I mean incredible. Arrival was in the afternoon and the management team was here to meet us. Loved the little snacks and drinks that were supplied after a long day, how thoughtful. Sunset was immaculate with that airy Caribbean flare, 3 separate suites and 6 sitting areas, art decor and actually more than we ever expected.

We are beach people and went exploring every day to Dark Wood, Pigeon, Half Moon Bay and then the trek to Rendezvous. All the beaches were pretty clean and no one bothering you selling stuff. We also explored the roadside shacks for lunch and fruit to take back to the villa, the barbecue chicken was great! There were great restaurants all over in Jolly Harbor. Best deal lobster at Al Porto, best 5 star was Jacqui O's, best beach food Dark Wood and best Italian was Basilico. Lots of fresh fish and veggies and never had a bad meal. We also did the Wadadli cruise which included snorkeling and a nice Caribbean feast, lots of fun.

We always seemed to be hanging at the villa to watch the sunset nightly after a day or sports and traveling. Sooooo relaxing and comfortable with the beautiful breezes keeping you cool. Never needed the air conditioning at all. The little things made our stay, from the local CD's for music, beach chairs and towels, first aid kit was used, well appointed kitchen and homey feel.

We had used the grill and had bought groceries at the market across the street.

Sunset is a relaxing, perfectly situated villa with incredible views. We loved it and had a vacation we'll never forget. Thank you Garvey's we will be back!

Owner's Response: Perfect! Just to be clear this was a guest that arrived and stayed with us. She is a “rater” and asked if we would mind a honest perspective from her. Her reasoning was she thought her opinion would help other guests in the future, so we opined. Obvious we knew her rating would be good, but this is her experience unobstructed. TY

You may never want to leave Villa Sunset but perhaps you venture out to explore what the island has to offer, Jolly Harbour is right across the street. The bustling Jolly Harbour Marina can take you on various boating excursions, scuba diving, snorkeling and sport fishing trips. There are beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants, and bars. The Marina complex even offers an 18-hole golf course, tennis and squash courts.

In Jolly Harbour is where you will find many fabulous restaurants, grocery shopping, pharmacy, banking, ice cream and coffee shops. Further down the road about 5-8 minutes you will find Darkwood beach, Turners beach, Valley Church beach, and Coco bay.

The capital of Antigua, St. John, is only a 10-minute drive away where you will find local markets of delicious food, restaurants and lots of shopping.

The airport is approximately a 20-minute drive from the villa.

You may want to explore the heritage of Antigua at Nelson Dockyard and stunning views from the local gathering at Shirley Heights on Sundays, furthermore, enjoy the excitement of Carnival, Cricket and Sailing week.

We love sailing and scuba diving. Morning walks on the beach searching for beach glass then stopping in some of the charming beach huts for a late lunch or early dinners, like at Jackie O’s. Exploring the island and ending up at Shirley Heights. Buying fresh fish or lobster at the marina 10 minutes down the road. Dark Wood beach, snorkeling the reefs right off the coastline or Turners beach and Jolly beach only minutes away. A special dinner at Sheer Rock, you’ll never forget. And not to mention cocktails at the local beach bars, all minutes from Sunset. Hang with the locals at weekly fish fries, or head to St. Johns for local markets abundant with fresh fruits and veggies. Feel like exploring, hop in your car and try dining at Blue Water, Le Bistro or Cecelia’s. Be casual at Cloggy’s or the Mad Mongoose after the beach or island trek. Or head back at Villa Sunset with a glass of wine with stunning panoramic views. These are some of our favorites. Enjoy!
