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.

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places we have stayed in Antigua this was the most enjoyable. The house layout made you feel like you were always outside enjoying that great view no matter where you were. We enjoyed being by the pool so much we barely left the property to enjoy all Antigua has to offer.

The other striking feature was how private it was. We were there for Christmas and despite all of the other villas being full we didn’t notice anyone. The design of each villa and their locations provides that feeling.

The kitchen is very well appointed (everything we needed was there), the BBQ worked better than my own at home and the wifi with the cable tv provided everything and more we could possibly need.

We will be back.

Villa with A View!!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa With A View! What a view we had while staying at Villa Sunset. We traveled to Antigua to celebrate our 35th anniversary with 2 other couples. We chose Villa Sunset for it's location, luxurious feel and the feedback from fellow travelers! The Villa was gorgeous and we were met with the friendly staff of Lush Management. Cheryl greeted us and walked us through the Villa and left us with a nice flower arrangement and some treats. The bedrooms were the easiest thing to decide per couple because each room is the same size (one of the deceiding factors for us). The infiinty pool allowed for hours of lounging and swimming both day and night. The outdoor table allowed us to enjoy hours of playing cards. The view could not be better than from our pool! We did so many things while we were in town so I will only mention a few.

First off the location was perfect! We rolled down the hill everyday and visited The Crow's Nest for lunch, happy hour or to watch our football team play on Sunday. Jolly Harbor was the meeting place for the Catch the Cat Catamaran and the Antiqua Deep Sea Fishing boat and it was literally down the hill and next to the grocery store. Catch the Cat was by far our favorite experience!

We hired Vincent Price for a priviate chef experience and he told us he had been at Villa Sunset many times, in fact, the most Villa to host private dinners. We were close to beaches and we were 1.5 miles from our Anniversary Dinner Resturant, Sheer Rocks. We were also about 1/2 hour from English Harbor and Shirley's Height.

Can't recommend Villa Sunset enough! Loved the experience and we will defintely be repeaters.

Gorgeous villa with incredible views!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Antigua. The pictures and descriptions of this villa caught our attention and appeared to make it a great choice. It was absolutely fantastic! The initial contact with the owner made me optimistic that this would be a memorable trip. The owner was very responsive to questions and quick to offer helpful advice on what to do and where to go on the island. He seemed to have a deep appreciation for Antigua and a genuine caring that we enjoy our time there. We were greeted by a very warm staff that showed us around the villa and made sure we felt welcome and at home there. The villa is every bit as beautiful as the pictures represent and more. All of the bedroom suites are magnificent and well appointed as though right out of an architectural magazine. The air conditioning worked perfectly and kept the bedrooms very comfortable at night. The upscale kitchen had everything we needed and we enjoyed cooking breakfast and dinner there. The local grocery store is convenient and well stocked with almost anything you might require. We loved Villa Sunset's wonderful outdoor areas for eating, playing family games, reading, and soaking in the unmatched views of brilliant blue water, sailboats, neighboring islands, and Jolly Harbour. If you like taking pictures, this location will provide plenty of opportunity for shots of colorful sunsets and beautiful blue water. The pool is a perfect place to relax and cool off and still keep enjoying the amazing view. We were able to take advantage of water activities available right out of Jolly Harbour. We recommend Indigo Divers for scuba diving and Catamaran Sailing Antigua on board Cool Cat for private sailing charters. For fishing, we recommend Double Header or Obsession with Captain Derek out of Falmouth Harbour. Villa Sunset is perfect if you are happy taking it easy and enjoying the scenery as well as being located in a great place if you want to get out and explore or have blast with the water activities. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been able to stay at this special place and made memories of Antigua we will always cherish.

Owner's Response: TY!!!! So why did buy this special place? To experience what all of our reviews opine. Why do we rent Sunset? To share the experience, period. We get time off is too far and few between and your holiday time must be extra special. That is what Sunset is about! This is what we love to do on the nicest Caribbean island in our beautiful villa. Always upgrading, cleaning, painting, adding so we stay on top. Fun and memories, pretty simple! The Garvey's

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!
