Guestbook comments from the owner

We have never experienced a more favourable climate than Antigua and were sad to leave both Antigua and the villa behind. The precise info provided by the HomeAway website gave only a glimpse into the delight that awaited us. Situated on the North Finger, the villa is a quiet retreat away from downtown Jolly Harbour, yet it is close enough when you want stores, restaurants, etc. We loved the villa, the north and south beaches, and the community. The folks at HBK were friendly and helpful.



James' and Teresa's info packet is a useful tool for planning. We travelled to the many of the different treasures on the island visiting English Harbour area (Nelson’s Dockyard and Shirley Heights) as well as Half Moon Bay, Hell’s Gate, the Donkey Sanctuary and Devils’ Bridge to mention a few. Although we rented a car, taxis and buses are available. We have to mention the Eco Tour with Antiguan Adventures. Picked up from the docks of Jolly Harbour by a very personable crew on a power catamaran, we had an exceptionally pleasant daytrip which focused on the island's ecology and history.



A short trip takes you to Ffryes Beach and Dennis’ restaurant where we shared dishes (try curried goat); we visited again our last evening to watch the sunset. We dined on local dishes at several restaurants including Castaways (South Beach). At Sunset House on Darkwood Beach, Carla served jerk chicken, goat stew and grilled fish that were superb! For North American/European foods, several restaurants are available. We didn’t just eat out; the villa’s kitchen is well-appointed so we dined at “home” usually starting with a glass of wine watching the sunset at North Beach, followed by the meal and a relaxing evening listening to the tree frogs while star gazing.



No trip to Antigua is complete without experiencing local food purchased from the street vendors including jerk, pepper pot, bull’s foot soup and black pineapples. Visit the St. John`s market area; travelling there by local bus is a great way to meet Antiguans. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We shopped the large grocery stores as well as the small village stores. Lots of interesting shops are found around the St. Marys and High Street area; by the harbour you find the tourist area of the Quays.



James and Teresa, thanks for everything; most of all for sharing this piece of paradise. We hope to return to the island and your villa!

quiet and intimate location.The beach was awesome with crystal blue water
and virtually no people or traffic. Friendly locals and residents make this

Fantastic experience

  • 4 of 5
This beautiful villa had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Antigua. Our 11 and 7 year old boys loved both beaches and the pool. Located inside the secure community of Jolly Harbour you will find all the amenities required for a great vacation. The golf cart was very handy for trips to the grocery store or many restaurants within the complex. We also rented a car for a day from one of the onsite rental companies to explore the island.

James and Theresa were very accomodating and helpful for our last mintute getaway. We would definately recommend staying here and can't wait to go back.

Meravigloso - Vacanze dal 11/08/13 a 23/08/13

  • 5 of 5
Volevo essere breve spiegare in poche parole ma è una cosa impossibile, l'isola è fantastica e fatta per tutte le (tasche) diverso di molte recensione che avevamo visto prima della partenza, noi viviamo a Milano e i prezzi sono simili, devo prima ringraziare a James & Tereza devo dire che la loro villa ha superato le nostre aspetative,il è posto tranquillo, pulito e la gente del posto è molto educata, devo ringraziare a Daina la ragazza che viene una volta a settimana a fare pulizie, fantastica, mi ha datto delle dritte importante. Noi abbiamo girato l'isola sempre con Taxi, c'è un tassista chiamato J.R. cercatelo è una persona simpatica e con prezzi giusti , il bar della piscina Crows Nest veramente OTTIMO si maggia e beve bene. ( abbiamo provato tutti cocktail )! ( Non aspettate la pastasciutta ) siete all'estero, siete ospite accontentatevi con quello che il posto offre. Sarei capace di stare qua a scrivere un libro sul questo posto! Il mercato della fruta a St. John, Mercato del Pesce, Half Moon Bay, Tranquilly Bay,Valley Church, Devis Bridge,Jolly South Beach, Jolly North Beach...e tante altre atrazione e spiagge che questo posto offre da visitare.
Consiglio a tutti siamo andati con un bambino di 6 anni e ci siamo trovati benissimo. Dietro la villa di James c'è la tranquilissima Jolly North Beach, dove la mattina presto o tardo pomeriggio è possibile nuotare con il pesciolini... senza parola... Ha... stavo dimenticando... Se volete noleggiare una moto d'acqua cercate David ( ha i prezzi piu bassi di Antigua) lo trovate a Jolly south beach.

October Vacation

  • 4 of 5
My husband, myself and our 2 year old daughter stayed in the villa from October 4 - October 14 and it was great! The villa was clean, well maintained, spacious and we had everything we needed in terms of pots, pans, plates and cutlery. One of the deciding factors for us was the gate on the patio, which is an excellent feature, especially if you're staying in the villa with children. The other factor was the second bathroom with a bathtub for our daughter.

I highly recommend renting a golf cart. It's nice to walk, however if you have kids or it's a really hot day, that walk can be very long! Especially if you're carrying groceries or water.

Originally we rented the crib from the property management company but found it to be a bit rickety and not overly trust-worthy. The play pen/pack & play was much better, and we used that instead.

We didn't travel around the island at all, but stuck to Jolly Harbour. We enjoyed the pool in the mornings and usually visited the quieter beaches in the afternoon. The staff at the pool were lovely and after a couple of days knew our daughter by name and always said good morning to her. We found Jolly Beach to be a little rough for our daughter, but that may have just been the time of year. The beach near the villa provides a great view for sunsets but you have to get there in time! Boy the sun sets fast in the Caribbean! We took a half-day yacht charter (4 hrs) on Jabberwocky, which was amazing and I would highly recommend it. Snacks and drinks were provided and Nick and Kaye were super-accomodating in terms of our daughter. My husband and I were even able to take turns snorkeling, which was something we really wanted to do. The boat is gorgeous and Nick & Kaye are very knowledgable about the island and even gave us a bit of a history lesson.

Al Portos was great for dinner and we ate there a couple of times (Tuesdays are 2 for 1 pizza!), and we ate frequently at the Crow's Nest (the burger with pineapple on it is amazing!). The staff at both restaurants were very friendly and the service was great. We did not get to experience Castaways, which we had heard was a great restaurant, as it was closed for the season.

I would highly recommend Sunrise Villa for just about anyone, but especially for people traveling with kids since the owners provide toys, games, movies etc for children.

December Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Ww had a lovely 6 nights here in December. Jolly Harbour is very convenient for families with its supermarket, swimming pool (very good size), cash machines, bus to St John's etc. The houses here are a mixture of holiday lets and permanent homes .The golf cart is very useful and my girls loved their ride on it as we made our way to the pool.I would recommend hiring it - it uses very little petrol. The bus to St John's is quick, easy and cheap and you can get buses to other parts of the Island. The girls spent hours in the pool and the bar next door (Crows Nest) did nice lunches with reasonably priced kids meals. North Beach is very close and very quiet / pretty It was covered in lovely shells. South beach is busier but good for a swim / cocktails etc. The villa is clean, spacious and well maintained. The aspect to the water is lovely. We saw pelicans and various exotic looking fish just outside. In terms of trips - we did the sting ray City - my youngest daughter (9) was too scared to get in the water as they are very large - however, my other daughter liked it (10). We also hired a car and went to variousbeaches - Half Moon Bay is very uncommercial and good for snorkelling . My favourite beach was Pigeon Beach near Nelson Harbour - lovely for children, lots of shade, good for snorkelling, great cafe and a little park. Going back to the villas - the owners were always helpful and very friendly - I thought it was good value for money and a very good base for a holiday in Antigua.

What a Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this Jolly Harbour villa for 2 weeks in February and had an absolutely wonderful stay. We especially enjoyed that it is on the North Finger and away from most of the hustle and bustle. We also spent most of our beach time at North Beach and often were the only ones there.

The villa was very comfortable and clean and had every amenity that we could need. The Omands were extremely pleasant to work with and answered all of our questions and concerns.

Jolly Harbour contains almost everything one would need: superb grocery store, drug store, banks, bars, restaurants, shops and accessibility to boat tours. We had no need to look for anything we needed anywhere else. Everything is available at the Epicurean market.

We would highly recommend renting the golf cart with the villa. It makes it very convenient to get to the commercial area without walking for 15 minutes. It is much less expensive and renting one at the commercial center when they are available.

There is easy access to taxis and it is simple to catch the bus at the main entrance and go to St. Johns. From there one can connect to a bus almost anywhere on the island. We visited the produce market in St. Johns several times and took a bus to Nelson's Dockyard.

We would highly recommend a stay at this villa. There is no need to look anywhere else for a relaxing, quiet vacation.
