About the property

3 Bedroom En Suite Private Home With A View From Every Room And The Pools!

Sugar Ridge is a private gated community nestled into a hillside where sugar cane was once grown.

Cotton House is situated on a corner lot midway up the hill. It has two en suite bedrooms in the main house and a third en suite bedroom in the detached cottage at the rear of the property.

There are three window "walls" comprised of floor to ceiling sliding glass doors which recess into pocket frames in the living/dining great room. This creates a refreshing cool breeze that flows through the house all day long.

The large verandah pleases sun & shade lovers equally and is lovely for every meal of the day. You will have the hard job every day to pick which of the three lounging areas you are in the mood for.

The infinity edge pool is accompanied by a smaller lounging pool perfect for happy hour.

The courtyard is a nice, cool spot to relax in the late afternoon.

There is plenty of space to park a rental car beyond the remote controlled entrance gate.

About Jenn

We are from Pennsylvania and we love to travel! Owning our own businesses has afforded us the freedom to explore the world with our two children. We are very grateful for this. Throughout our travels we kept returning to the sea, whether on a boat or on a coastline. We knew living near the ocean was inevitable and in 2015 it finally happened.

Jenn purchased this villa in 2015

Why Jenn chose Jolly Harbour

On our initial visit to the island of Antigua we stayed at the Sugar Ridge resort. During our stay I noticed building activity up above the resort and inquired what was going on. The response was a new housing development. That peaked our interest and we asked for a tour of one of the houses. I'll never forget the awe I felt once we entered the home, turned the corner and saw the most incredible view of the ocean (any ocean). We were speechless after a big Wow! And so our big decision to have the same thing for ourselves & you the renter started with that view.

The next year we rented that same house to experience "life" on Antigua & loved every minute of it. During our stay we met with the developer & sealed the deal a few months later. It is truly a dream come true and we hope you feel a little dreamy staying at Cotton House too!

What makes this villa unique

We are amazed by the sense of total relaxation that just seems to happen the moment you walk in the front door, open the sliders & stroll out to the verandah. Our normal hectic life back home just fades away. You sleep better, eat better, laugh more. You realize no stress is a good goal to have. We hope our home has the same effect on you. We don't want you to worry about anything. The lovely staff at Villa Management will take care of anything you need during your stay as they do for us when we are here.

womderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cotton House was just as advertised. View was just amazing. One thing I would suggest to anyone thinking of renting this property is that you really should rent a car. The grocery store is close but the hill that you must climb to get back to villa is extremely steep. The staff at villa mngt was wonderful and answered all questions we had. The villa has everything that you will need for an amazing vacation. Don't miss the party on Sunday at Shirley Heights. Also Carmichaels (short walk), Sheer Rocks (short drive) were our favorite spots for dinning out. But if someone in your group is a good cook (which we did have) eating in sitting out on the veranda overlooking Jolly Harbour at nite cant be beat. Finally, it was a real pleasure dealing with the owner Jenn. She truly cares about her guests having a good time. Although we don't normally go back to the same place, Cotton House may change our routine.

Relaxing and comfortable!

The house is beautiful, each room comfortable and so nicely decorated! We loved sitting on the veranda having coffee every morning watching the cranes and birds and of course the amazing view from Cotton House!

Amazing Amazing Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have picked a better location, house or island! Jenn was fabulous with all communication. Villa management helped us greatly from anything from grabbing our trash to locating a taxi to get a friend to the hospital. They checked on us afterwards and were beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend Cotton House to anyone! We even got to meet the builder while at dinner one night! Simply wonderful...

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome

  • 5 of 5

I don’t look for the negatives in general but if I did Cotton House has a very very short list. This exceptional property is up at the top of my family’s list of accommodations throughout our global travels. The villa itself is spacious, well appointed, clean, modern and very relaxing. The pool, sundeck and jacuzzi make it hard to leave the villa for the beach. The views are exceptional day or night and the proximity to Jolly Harbour and all other atttractions is perfect. The Ability to make use of the gym, pools, spa, restaurants and shuttle at the Sugar ridge hotel cap off what is sure to be an exceptional holiday if you chose Cotton House.

Awesome View and Location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Paradise. Cotton House had everything you need to have fun in the Caribbean. You are close to all the best beaches as well as the best restaurants and shopping in Jolly Harbour and St. Johns. Jenn and her family have thought of everything and villa management did a great job making sure we had the best experience possible. Thanks for the hospitality.

Our home is located in one of the most beautiful coastal areas of Antigua basking in western exposure. The immediate area has really seen tremendous growth in restaurants and activities. We delight in checking out all the new businesses that have opened since our previous visit. Notable restaurants that have never disappointed are Sheer Rocks, Akropolis Greek Taverna, Jacqui O's Love Beach, Cecilia's High Point Cafe, Al Porto, Ana's on the Beach, Club Sushi and Carmichael's. Shirley Heights Look Out is a must any Sunday night throughout the year for great BBQ & plenty of dancing. The off road buggy tours, Jolly Harbour Reef Riders, Sting Ray City & zip-lining are just a few of the special activities you can do to enhance your stay. Please check out our Cotton House scrapbook for information about restaurants and things to do. The real pleasure is in the discovery of all the things this island has to offer and the people you meet along the way.
