Do you like beautiful beaches and aqua-blue water?: Go to the beautiful secluded beach within walking distance of our villa (left as you exit the villa) and enjoy a swim in the beautiful aqua-blue waters, walk the beach, pick shells on the beach, sun bath, read a book under a palm tree or enjoy the view of the sail boats anchored in the harbor. The Caribbean water is calm and just the right temperature.

About Joseph Golubov

I love fishing, snorkeling, jet-skiing, relaxing on the beach, swimming in the beautiful blue water and watching the humming birds on the patio.

Joseph Golubov purchased this villa in 2005

Why Joseph Golubov chose St. Mary

Antigua is a beautiful Island with the most magnificent blue water. Jolly Harbour is a great area of Antigua which contains just about anything that you could want or need including, but not limited to golf course, boat rentals, swimming pool, grocery store, restaurants, gift shops, snorkeling, tennis, marina, fishing, car rental, golf cart rental, bank, beach bar/restaurant, jet ski rentals, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visited in February 2011. This villa is in a fantastic location on the waterside with beautiful views over the harbour. It is also three minutes from a very quiet sandy beach which we had to ourselves most of the time, excellent for evening swims with the Pelicans' fishing all around.

The villa was spotlessly clean and well appointed, the beds and sitting room furniture were comfortable We experienced swimming with Stingrays, Zip lining in the forests, snorkelling on the Coral Reef and having hired a car we were able to explore more of this lovely Island, We loved the local restaurants and the restaurant by the swimming pool did very good breakfasts. The Supermarket was well stocked and reasonable priced. The indigenous population are so friendly and gentle.

Our time in Antigua was enhanced by the support and the provision of excellent information by the owner.

We were very grateful for that.

We would recommend this villa and Antigua to our friends and are looking forward to revisiting this delightful place ourselves.

Beautiful Antigua!

We have enjoyed our stay at the wonderful Jolly Harbour Villa. The Villa is comfortable and well equipped and provides wireless Internet. The Villa is Located on the North finger and in a very quiet area.

Mr. Glolubov the owner and property managers were very accessible to be reach at all time. Before departure we received all the information required for a nice stay. The cab driver Glenn is a reliable person and he came at the airport to drive us back at the Villa. We loved to sit on the terrace and relax to enjoy the view.

There is a very nice grocery store at the entrance of the Jolly Harbour.

Tips: There are so many places to visit, great historical sites or attraction to be seen. St-John Heritage Market, Museum and Heritage Quay, Shirley Heights (best sunset ever) Betty’s Hope (free), Nelson’s Dockyard, Canopy tour, Circumnavigation

Important to mention, golf carts are the primary mode of transportation when moving around Jolly Harbour. Golf carts are convenient to access beaches, golf course, supermarket and restaurants. We rented our golf cart on site at Locomotion Ltd T/AS Jolly Cart Rental for 20$ per day taxes included. Raymond arranged for us that on arrival the kart would be parked at the Villa.

We would recommend a visit to the Al Porto restaurant for great Italian food on Tuesday night 2 4 1 pizza and on Thursday Pasta buffet all you can eat at a very good price!

Everything was there for us to enjoy our stay. What was great about renting the Villa, was that we felt like home!

We would highly recommend renting the Villa! Thank you Mr. Golubov and we will return.

Amazing Stay in Antigua - Jolly Harbour

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Joe's Villa in Jolly Harbour for 2 weeks over the Christmas holiday. Everything from the beginning to end was fantastic... Joe was extremely helpful with recommendations and quick to respond to all emails!! He had recommended that we reserve a golf cart, which we reserved prior to arriving in was waiting in the driveway when we arrived to the villa! He recommended a driver that he uses, by the name of Glen, and we made contact with him prior to arriving and he was there holding a sign with our name upon arrival! We arrived to the villa and the property manager, Roxanne, met us and took us through the villa, etc. There was a welcome basket with a few things to get started, cereal, bottle of wine, cookies, tea, etc... The villa is beautiful...everything was very clean, neat, the kitchen was refurbished and was super clean, great dishes to utilize (we did cook in a lot to save on some expenses)! When you walk to the back of the villa, onto the back porch area, what incredible views...we were just in awe! The shower in the main bathroom was in good working order...we also utilized the washing machine and hung our clothes out to dry... in the villa, there are the 110 volts and 220 volts and there was an adapter there which was good! I would say that the only slight issue that we had, and I definitely mean slight...was that the mattress in the master bedroom was very firm for us. So those that like the firmer mattresses, you should love the bed! :)

The community of Jolly Harbour was great, very safe, everything that you could need if you decided not to rent a car. As soon as we arrived and got settled, we took the golf cart up to the grocery store and got stocked up on groceries! we did eat at two of the restaurants, Al Porto (Tues night is buy 1 / get 1 free pizza) and then we ate at the Crow's Nest twice...both were very good.

Activities: we rented a vehicle from Pineapple Rentals; rented a 19' Boston Whaler boat from Paradise Boat Rentals; took a day trip on the Barbuda Express to Barbuda; took a helicopter ride around the island...everything was great, no issues at all.

Without any hesitation at all, I would highly recommend renting this villa from Joe!

My favorite thing about the rental was the location. It is located across mangroves and a quick walk to the beach. Everything was clean and the place is spacious. We used the kitchen for cooking and it was stocked with all the utensils we needed. There was a basket with some cereal, wine, cookies, etc. It was a nice touch. I would have preferred the basics for the bathroom (soap and shampoo) instead of the basket but that's just my opinion.

Back to the location, the mangroves across the street are a great place to see birds! We saw an Antillean crested hummingbird! Also, we fished down the road and from the patio... the ice chest in the garage was very useful. If you have a chance to go out to the rocks on the beach at night you can see zooplankton glowing in the water. It is quite a view. Make sure you sit in the patio at night when there is no moonlight, the stars look amazing! Just make sure you have no lights on, or the mosquitos will get you. With that said, make sure you take long sleeve shirts and pants if you want to have dinner out at night or go fishing or go pretty much anywhere! There are mosquitos and gnats. There are mongooses in the neighborhood, they are very timid and should not be an issue. Seeing them was a big part of my trip because I love animals.

The rental felt very safe, there are security guards at all the gates. The only time I felt uncomfortable was when a man was walking around the place asking for donations and then asked me for a ride to the entrance. He was having a hard time breathing because of his weight, so I told him yes but it was really uncomfortable to have him in the car with me. Fortunately, my bf joined us a few minutes after he got in the car. Also, one day, kids were riding a golf cart really fast, unsupervised. There is a supermarket located right at the entrance of Jolly Harbour. It is pricey, we shopped there pretty much everyday. I would recommend renting a car and driving everywhere except to St. John's. I would suggest you take the bus at the Jolly Harbour entrance instead…it is only a few dollars and will save you so much time. The drive and parking at St. John's was not pleasant. Make sure your rental car has good tires and prepare for potholes and road humps.

If you have a chance go see the stingrays and stop at Delicias after for a yummy lunch. Also, make sure to stop at Melini's and ask Mark for some punch!

My fiancé and I recently spent two weeks at Joe's villa in Antigua. From the moment we walked inside the villa, it felt like home. We had all the amenities as promised. The kitchen is newly updated and completely stocked with all utensils. The villa is nicely furnished, very clean with a beautiful view of the water from both verandas. (Upstairs and downstairs). There was also a new barbecue grill (which we used to grill the fish we caught).

The villa is located near several great restaurants as well as a fully stocked supermarket. There is also a large pool for resident's use and a beach within walking distance. We recommend renting a car to see some of this beautiful island.

We look forward to returning next year to Antigua and staying at Joe's villa. We highly recommend to family and friends the rental of this unit. Thanks to Joe and the management company for a comfortable stay for our vacation.

This Jolly Harbour villa has all the necessary services and provides a convenient island location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a very comfortable and restful holiday at this roomy, quiet and well equipped villa. Contacts with the owner and property managers were all very positive and we appreciated all the info about the property, services and sights we might need or be interested in. There is a good grocery store at Jolly Harbour which allows you to have some meals at the villa. The kitchen appliances were either brand new or relatively new and I can't think of of a kitchen utensil I needed that wasn't supplied. We did alot of island travel, but even if you just stayed in the Jolly Harbour area, I still think you'd need at least to rent one of the golf carts to haul drinking water and groceries. What makes the villa quiet for sleeping means you are further away from some of the services. We found the WIFI and telephone helped to make our stay more enjoyable as they were a valuable resource for island information and communication. TV's, air conditioners, and washing machine were all in working order. There are clotheslines and pins on the terrace off the master bedroom for wet items. There were only 2 of us, but I think 4 people would be quite comfortable in this home. We rented a car and there was parking right across the road from the villa. There were good restaurants near the marina and just a short distance from Jolly Harbour. For some restaurants outside Jolly Harbour you would definately need transportation. ( FYI eating out in Antigua can be expensive. Having said that we enjoyed some really delicious food with settings that can't be beat.) There is a taxi stand near the grocery store or I'm sure there is a taxi number in the villa's info packet. We never had a problem getting directions or information on or off the property. People we met were friendly and did the best they could to be helpful. We were so happy with our decision to stay at Joseph's villa.
