This comfortable Apt. has been recently redecorated in neutral tones which create a clean, airy feeling for your home away from home. Its space allows for variations on the use of furniture to tailor make what you need for your stay; whether it be couple/s sharing or a family with up to three children. The large bedroom features vibrant Caribbean colours and has a large double bed, A/C, wicker easy chair and enough space for a cot/child's bed. The lounge features a quality futon sofa bed which converts to double bed, stereo, and TV with cable channels. The open plan lounge-kitchen has French doors which open directly onto the patio area with table which seats four - perfect for al fresco dining! The full kitchen is very well equipped for all your self catering needs and you also have a washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board. Outside there is a lovely, small private garden + decking area with sun bed, making the great outside space perfect to relax & enjoy your stay.
We have recently returned from a four-week stay in this apartment and I would happily turn around and do it all again!
Outside there is a lovely long veranda with a charcoal barbecue, four chairs and a table, plus the easy chair pictured. The veranda is private and not overlooked by any other property. There is a small garden which attracts lots of birds and has the occasional shy mongoose passing through. Inside, the property is spacious and clean and comfortably furnished. There is a TV but we didn't watch it so can't comment on that. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need to self-cater. The sofa and armchair both convert to beds so it would sleep two children as well if necessary. The apartment is cleaned weekly during your stay by the on-site management company. They will also help you out with any problems you may have.
We had stayed on Jolly Harbour on three previous occasions and have always hired a golf buggy - primarily to make shopping easier - but the position of the apartment makes that unnecessary - don't waste your money. It is a gentle two minute stroll to the beach and about six minutes to the supermarket. The supermarket is very well stocked and has everything you could ever need. The beach is breathtakingly beautiful; on this island of beautiful beaches it has to rank top, or almost top. There is a beach bar (Castaways) which does some nice food - try the happy-hour rum punches whilst watching the sunset - bliss!! Crows Nest is a few minutes walk away and does good food, usually following a theme each evening - Asian, fish and chip nights, two-for-one etc. Both restaurants have free Wi-Fi. There are also two Italian restaurants but we didn't use them this time so can't comment on them.
Would highly recommend this apartment.
The apartment was spacious, clean and very homely also situated in a excellent location. The discription of the apartment was very accurate and in fact didn't do it justice.
1st trip to Antigua and have to say this will be the beggining of many more. Lovely beaches and have to say, get out with a hire car and venture over the island as theres loads to see.
Apartment 211-a1, !!THANK YOU FOR A GREAT HOLIDAY!!!

Well-equipped and spacious property. No marina view but this was reflected in the price. Main plus-point was the proximity of all amenities. The beach (and what a beach!) was a 3-minute walk away with a really good beach bar and water sports facilities and there were shops (including a reasonable supermarket), bars and restaurants in the other direction. The biggest plus-point of all was the aircon in the bedroom! In early October we expected high humidity and we got it so the cool bedroom was a real bonus. The pre-arrival info was useful and the property was, in the main, clean on arrival. All in all a good base for our first time in Antigua.
Located on the South Finger of Jolly Harbour; a popular resort centred around a world class Marina. The apartment is in a fantastic location, just a stones throw from an idyllic, mile long, sandy beach where you can relax and take in the magnificent views of neighbouring Monsterrat. The apartment is also a short walk to the resorts amenities which include a large international supermarket, restaurants, bars, bank, pharmacy, internet cafe and various other shops. For leisure facilities there is a sports complex which includes a large pool (free for use with apartment) squash courts, tennis courts, bar and restaurant. Jolly Harbour also has its own 18 hole golf course with club facilities including a gym and pro shop. For those wishing to explore more, the apartment is located within 15 min drive to some of the Islands most spectacular beaches, 20 min to the capital St Johns, 30 min to the airport, and overall no more than 40 minutes drive to any of Antigua's many great attractions.
