BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY - GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Antigua and my wife and I chose to stay at the Contemporary Villa in Jolly Harbor. I don't think we could have made a better choice. This is a beautifully renovated villa with all of the comforts of home.

Milton was there to greet us when we arrived and had the fridge stocked with a few essentials - milk, eggs, bread, cheese, beer, etc. This was fantastic and completely unexpected. There were also plenty of essentials leftover from previous guests (spices, condiments, peanut butter, jelly, etc.). The unit is fully stocked with all the pots, pans, etc. that you will need. The unit was very clean and well maintained.

The villa's location is one of the best in Jolly Harbor. It is on the south finger and is literally only about a 3 minute walk to the beach. The back of the condo looks across the finger of the harbor and onto Castaways' (the beach bar) property, however we had no issues with noise coming from the bar. From the second level master bedroom you can see the ocean. When you get to the beach look for either Marvin (works for Castaways) or David (works for Sandra's beach bar/shack). Either one will set you up with a chair and umbrella for the day or week. We negotiated a weekly rate of $80.

The plunge pool was great. A nice, relaxing way to end an evening. We made use of this most evenings.

The grocery store is a short walk away, however we rented a car from Pineapple Rentals in Jolly Harbor, for the week and never had to make the walk. Not sure I would want to walk it with a lot of groceries.

My wife treated herself to a massage from Alex on the beach. He does massage and reflexology and definitely knows what he is doing. He comes highly recommended and is a super nice guy. We were stunned when my wife tried to tip him and he would not take it, says he does not take tips. He also offers weekly rates. Keep an eye out for him.

We ate at many of the local restaurants. Our favorites were El Porto (great Italian and fairly priced), Shells Fish and Chips (a few blocks out of Jolly Harbor - great English style fish and chips) and Carmichaels (at Sugar Ridge, right outside Jolly Harbour, best meal we had on the island but fairly pricey).

Also, visit Joy at the art gallery she runs at Sugar Ridge Resort. Its all local artist and some very cool stuff.

When we return to Antigua, we will definitely contact Milton & Joy.

ANTIGUA HOLIDAY, DEF RECOMENDED

  • 4 of 5
A superb holiday on the Beautiful Island of Antigua. Great Island, golden sands, superb beaches and people friendly.
The Villa itself is in a great location, though the clear selling point if the warmth and friendliness of Joy & Milton. Always available to answer a call or email, and assist with making the holiday that little bit easier to manage. Small points worth mentioning are the local mobile phone that is left, and a fridge full of basics are a great holiday foundation.
We had a great time in the area, however hiring a car is a good option to see the island, however be aware of directions not being the best, however the place is not that big, so you will not really get lost.
We went during slight off peak season, but found this great.
Was so hot, 6am to 6pm generally, so be prepared.
Going in peak time, I would imagine the place gets really busy, which might not have been so great in many ways.
Well recommended, a great holiday in the sun.

THE ONLY WORDS THAT COME TO MIND IS AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
This was my third year going down to Jolly Harbour with my girlfriend. We decided to bring my parents for there first time. We picked this beautiful villa with an amazing view. From the start of the booking process till we left to come home Milton and joy were extremely friendly and helpful. When we arrived at the villa they were there to greet us and welcome us with a fridge of some necessary food for the first day or two.

When we go down again we will be looking to stay in this villa again. The view of the back deck to be able to see the ocean threw the trees, the breeze you get threw the whole villa, the plunge pool to relax in (witch gets really warm almost like a natural hot tube lol).

Thank you joy and Milton so much

IT FIT US TO A T

  • 5 of 5
The prior published reviews are uniformly highly laudatory. We whole heartedly agree with 99% and will try to avoid simply repeating them.

We can think of no way to improve on the villa’s convenient, central location within Jolly Harbour. Deciding to rely on taxis for wider exploration (Nelson’s Dockyard was easily the high point), we cancelled the rental car. A somewhat battered rented golf buggy did prove useful for the short trips to market and around the complex. The market is very good. The beach and water are spectacular. The unit is accurately listed and portrayed, its design a testament to the owners’ vision. As an architect I am familiar with and strongly favor simple, visually clean contemporary design. The interior photos initially concerned me with their unusually uniform whiteness and simplicity of furnishings. Truth be told, once there we found the whole unit extremely pleasant and very relaxing. It fit us to a T.

Searching for deficiencies: The three restaurants sampled within the Jolly Harbour complex did nothing to raise our modest expectations for Caribbean restaurants in general. The unit’s stair is an unusually handsome, very solid design, but is sufficiently narrow as to warrant care at the 180-degree bend. Having a clothes washing machine is an unusual plus. But the present washer was remarkably noisy at two points in its cycle. From our experience with Joy and Milton, we are confident this minor annoyance will be rapidly remedied.

From first contact to final parting, Joy and Milton could not have been more pleasant and helpfully accommodating. We especially noted and appreciated the pre-provisioning of the refrigerator and the abundance of kitchen staples. We liked Antigua and this villa enormously, and hope to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very considered review, Peter and Dale - we really appreciate your great comments about the villa, and all the more because they come from an architect. After trying various fixes we have now replaced the washing machine with a new one, so all should be fine for your next visit! Kind regards Joy and Milton Contemporary Villas

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
It was our first time in Antigua and we thouroughly enjoyed our stay. This modern, spacious, open concept villa met all our needs. We arrived to clean unit with a fridge stocked with the basics to get us through the first day. Approximately a 3 minute walk to Jolly beach and Cataways restaurant. Beach chairs could be rented for 5$/day each. We mentioned we frequently purchased meals and drinks at castaways and they provided us with free chairs on most days the cruise ship clients weren't there. About a10 minute walk to Epicurian grocery store and other restaurants. The plunge pool was great for the kids...and us too when we wanted a little more quiet time than at the communal pool.

We rented a car which gave us the opportunity to truly visit the island at our pace. Driving can be a little tricky, on the left side of the road and almost no traffic rules. We went to St-Johns a few times, discovered Darkwood and Turner's beach just a 10 minute car drive from the villa. We also went to Half Moon bay, a beautiful secluded beach with big waves. Shirley Heights on sunday nights (get there for 4:30 PM) is a fun filled evening of reggae/steel band music and jerk BBQ chicken, the view of the habour is stunning at sunset.
We really loved the Catamaran tour around the island and the Zip lining in the tropical forrest.

Lastly, people in Antigua are friendly and we felt very safe here. Joy and Milton were very friendly and accomodating, answered all our questions. Antigua a great island for a little R&R but if you like adventure you will also find pleanty to do here. We will surely be back in the future and would recommend this unit to our friends and family.

WONDERFUL STAY FOR OUR FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to Antigua and more importantly, the first time I had ever used a private property management company instead of one of the larger travel sites. I am sooo glad I found this villa!! I made the right decision - the villa was clean, the managers were exceptional, the location was ideal, and we were provided with everything we might need as vacationers. This property was great for a couple, but the two master bedroom design made it an exceptional value for four people. This location was one of the best in Jolly Harbor and it was an easy walk to the store and right across the street from the beach.

All that said..Jolly Harbor is a resort style area which is also clean and appeared very safe to me. The security staff were helpful when possible and always extremely friendly. My husband and I walked it end to end and beyond, and although I like visiting new places, I would definitely consider staying here again because of the location and the attentiveness of the managers. The restaurants were good, and exactly what you would expect from a resort type area - pricey/on the slow side, and definitely make a reservation if you come during the high season, but know this ahead of time and all will be well. You definitely don't need a car, but we had a great time driving to see the island (not me - my husband was brave enough to drive on the left side) but I thought the more local type beach bars close by had even better food. The whole trip was easy from booking until the cab ride to the airport, and I highly recommend this property!

Finally - Joy and Milton, thank you for the personal service, for your time in entertaining all of our questions, and for a lovely time on your island! Missy
