About Barbara Thomson
I live in Lymington UK with my partner Budgie. We are both retired (me from IBM, him from Surgery) and spend six months of each year in England, and six months in our lovely home in Antigua (to avoid the English winter!) We are 'yachties' and have a small sailing boat in Antigua. We also love gardening and enjoy finding interesting plants from the Caribbean to plant in our Jolly Harbour garden. (A local gardener takes care of the garden when we are away). We also play golf, and collect art. An eclectic mixture of local and international paintings are displayed on the walls of Jolly Lodge.
Barbara Thomson purchased this house in 2011
Why Barbara Thomson chose St. John
For eight years we spent every winter in New Zealand. The journey took three days each way. During a return trip from NZ we visited Jolly Harbour, and had more fun in six days than in six months in England! We now find direct flights to and from Antigua from UK, USA and Canada easy and stress-free. We love the climate, the best in the World, and the friendly Antiguan people. Jolly Harbour is full of happy like-minded people all here to enjoy themselves. We love the proximity to a wonderful beach, excellent restaurants and friendly bars. Everything needed for a relaxing holiday is in the JH complex, a car is not needed unless one wishes to explore the Island, with its' famous Georgian Nelson's Dockyard, Falmouth with fabulous superyachts, & the exciting island capital city, St John's.
What makes this house unique
We bought this property because it has three double bedrooms, unlike most properties in Jolly Harbour with only two bedrooms. The corner location gave us a private garden and the opportunity to build a side extension and heated swimming pool within the secure fenced area of the property. The private position and location of the house allows a cool breeze to blow through day and night; we have never had to use air conditioning in the ground floor rooms, and rarely in the bedrooms. Ceiling fans in the rooms, and on the waterfront patio, keep us cool and relaxed.
