About Dominic & Tracy

We have been visiting the Caribbean for over 10 years and Antigua for the last 4 years as its one of the most beautiful Islands with direct flights from the U.K, USA and Canada,

We have lived in Wiltshire in the UK for the last 10 years but love our time spent in Jolly Harbour and return at least three times a year.

Dominic & Tracy purchased this villa in 2015

Why Dominic & Tracy chose Jolly Harbour

This Villa is positioned in one of the best locations of the Jolly Harbour complex, firstly South Finger is far better than the North Finger for location, all amenities and supermarket, secondly the villa is a very short walk to the beach which can only be described as truly amazing!! The property is furnished more as our 2nd home and not a holiday rental.

What makes this villa unique

250 D is one of the only properties that has been renovated with the environment in mind, one thing that property owners in Jolly Harbour forget to mention is that the Government supplied water to all Villa's is 'Not recommended' to drink, so guests have a daily commute to the supermarket to purchase bottled water.

When refurbishing we invested in a 5 filter water filtration system that allows Guests to drink the filtered water from the fridge dispenser, this also produces Ice, Cubed or Crushed and helps save on plastic Bottles!

The property also has other energy and water saving system's in place to make the modern traveler feel home from Home. An Eco Energy water heater, Eco shower heads and Eco Sense A/C units to help with the properties low Carbon footprint. The property has USA, UK power plugs and USB built in chargers so no need for travel plugs or adapters.

Phenomenal property. The pictures and reviews do not do justice to Jolly Harbour 250D!

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal stay at this villa. We have been to Jolly Harbour several times before so we knew the lay of the land so to speak. That said this villa is newly remodeled and the pictures in the listing are spot on. Dominic and Tracy are the owners and they went above and beyond to make sure we truly enjoyed our holiday. They thought of every detail from airport transportation to fun activities and dining during our stay. I cannot recommend 250D enough!!!

Modern Luxury with all the conviniences

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering renting in Jolly Harbour then you should not look any further than 250D, on the South Finger. There are a lot of older units that may rent for a bit cheaper in Jolly Harbour, but Dominic and Tracy's wonderful condo is worth every penny. Everything is updated including all the appliances, all kitchen utensils, pots and pans and everything you need to make your stay great is at your fingertips. Every light switch is labeled, every fixture is new and everything has been thought of. The beach is a five minute walk away and stunning. Dominic has bikes in the garage, but we never used them. I would rent a golf buggie on my next visit as the supermarket and most of the restaurants are a bit far from the condo. There are some restaurants outside of Jolly Harbor that will send a free shuttle right to your door like Carmichaels which was excellent. For chaise lounges on the beach there are several vendors that will try and convince you to purchase chairs from them. Go straight through Castaways restaurant and ask for Mervin. Staying in Dominic's apartment entitles you to free chaise loungers and Mervin will hook you up. He is a great guy. You do have to pay for umbrellas however which you will need as there is very little shade on the beach. Dealing with Dominic was a pleasure, he was very quick to respond to questions and very quick to refund our security deposit. He also arranged for clean transfers from the airport which was great. I would not hesitate to rent Dominic and Tracys condo again and highly recommend it.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, the location is perfect, an the spacious home has everything you could need. We really appreciated the air conditioning when we slept, the well stocked kitchen, and the grocery store and restaurants were amazingly convenient to get to. We rented a golf cart to get around the property but didn't really need to, it just was a highlight for our 18 year old son. The beaches are the most beautiful we have seen. Dominic and Tracy were wonderful, they always got back to us right away and were lovely and helpful.

Michelle arranged for airport pick up and drop off and if we had any questions she was in contact. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation, if we are lucky enough to visit Antigua again we would definitely stay here. Our son gave this place a 10!

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We've had a great time at 250D JH, fabulous villa with two en suite big bedrooms and everything you need for a great self catering holiday. Direct access to harbour with its own jetty whereyou can do a spot of fishing, very well equipped! Amazing location 2 minutes walk from the beautiful Jolly Beach and Casterways beach bar. Great communication with the owners Dominic and Tracy. Thank you very much to both of you.

Antigua has 365 beaches, one for each day of the year, all of which are open to the public all year round. The unspoilt island of Barbuda can be visited via the Barbuda Express ferry for a day visit or there are sailing trips available if you want to stay for a few days. If you want to capture the amazing scenery of the whole island and surrounding areas then a helicopter tour is a must, you will see just about all of Antigua's coastline and you could also fly over Montserrat and get a closer look at an active volcano!! You could also take advantage of one of the many catamaran tours, Wadadli Cats or Treasure Island Cruises, to see the island from the sea and snorkel in crystal clear waters. Deep sea diving is available, with Jolly Dive,they go out daily to dive at Cades Reef and other location including wrecks.From Jolly Harbour Marina there are also deep sea fishing trips,. There are many places of interest to visit in Antigua including Nelson's Dockyard, English Harbour and Shirley Heights where on a Sunday afternoon there is a BBQ with a live Steel Band playing until sunset when a local reggae band takes over, not to be missed!! St John's is around a 10 minute drive from Jolly Harbour where there is a good duty free shopping area. Tours are also available by land - Island Safari takes you through Antigua's rain forest and you will take in amazing views of the island and the sea. You can also do the zip lines through the rain forest and get a spectacular view from the tree tops. However if all you want from your holiday is sun, sea and relaxation then you have to go no farther than a two minute walk to, what we believe, is the most beautiful beach on the island, right on your doorstep!!!
