About Marc Garvey

We have been Caribbean lovers since we first took our children there in the early ‘80’s instead of Disneyland. Neither of our children or we have never made it to Disneyland, but we’ve visited just about every island in the beautiful Caribbean. We have been looking the last few years and had narrowed it down to Antigua and one other island. Antigua won hands down! It was the fabulous beaches, the overly friendly Antiguans, the spectacular views, the security of one of the lowest crime rates, the value of the restaurants and handmade purchases, the cleanliness of the island and homely feel of the little towns and villages, the golf courses and the endless activities available…you know where we’re going, we found paradise! A ton of research ensued and endless search for the dream villa ended in Sugar Ridge. Our second trip with in six months we had knew we found home at Villa Sunset and you will too. Certainly the best and most spectacular views of any villa we inspected!

Marc Garvey purchased this villa in 2013

Why Marc Garvey chose St. John

One of the best points of it all is location, location, and location. Jolly Harbor has it all and it’s at the bottom of the hill. We have stayed in different areas of the island and by far Jolly Harbor takes the cake. Beaches, restaurants, endless water sports, grocery and liquor stores, banks, rental cars, cafes, and nightlife are only a minute away.

What makes this villa unique

Sugar Ridge is a luxury boutique hotel at our beck and call, which was a big selling point for us. You wouldn’t know it’s right next to the villa, but the use of the fitness center, excellent restaurants and facilities are just about a 5-minute walk or 2-minute drive away make for convenience and ease during your vacation. Security 24 hours, paved roads and the elegance of it all, especially our Antiguan friends, makes you feel like you’re someone special.

Can't do any better than this special place

  • 5 of 5

How lucky were we to book this jewel 5 months ago. Little did we realize what a special place this villa was. I don't know if there is a better view in the Caribbean from the porch/pool. This is a beautifully designed villa is perfectly laid out and extremely well appointed. Both couples sharing the villa appreciated having king size beds as so many other villas we've rented in the past went with queen size beds. There is nothing lacking in this villa, I am telling you. Book this place and you can thank me later for guaranteeing you the best vacation of your life.

Out best holiday yet

  • 5 of 5

After our hectic year of working hard, this holiday was much needed. It's difficult to really sum up the villa in a short review - there are so many amazing things about it! From the lovely decor, to the spacious bedrooms, comfy lounge area, the beautiful en-suite. Plus the pool and the breathtaking views. It really is something special.

This simply was our best holiday. From the moment we stepped inside we were instantly transformed. It's just so relaxing. So much so it took a lot of convincing to get my other half to do something else other than lounge in the villa.

There are also many other benefits to villa, such as the super modern appliances, the stocked out pantry cupboard, the in-house mobile phone and easy access to Sugar Ridge.

We're currently planning another trip to the villa next year and can't wait.

Thanks Marc and Ita for everything.

Better than 5 Star

  • 5 of 5

An outstanding villa with truly spectacular views and fabulous infinity pool. The photos really don't do this villa justice. They really have thought of absolutely everything from the beach chairs, first aid kit, sewing kit, wine stoppers and basic store cupboard ingredients. All things you don't normally expect to have when staying in a villa. So many home comforts that made our stay luxurious. We have stayed in many villas but none of them can compare to this. We have been truly spoilt and will struggle to beat this. We didn't want to venture out or away from the villa because we enjoyed the vista and Sunsets so much.

There are plenty of restaurants in nearby Jolly Harbour. We tried the majority of them. Our favourites were Al Porto for lovely pizza, Mayday for lovely Hungarian Beef Ghoulash and schnitzels and Akropolis for delicious Greek food and friendly hospitality. We also had lunch at the Sugar club at Sugar Ridge, very nice Aberdeen Angus beef burgers & fish cakes and we used the well equipped gym and pool there.

We ventured out a couple of times and went to Coco & Jolly Harbour beaches which are beautiful.

We have to thank Roxanne, Michelle & Avril for looking after us and working so hard to make sure the villa was kept clean and everything in order.

I would recommend this property to family and friends without a shadow of doubt and wish to thank Marc & Stacey for sharing their lovely home with us.

One of the best vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this villa when we had our family vacation last month and I had to say, it was one of the best vacations, ever! The villa was just a dream come true - beautiful and modern, with lavish furnishings. A truly luxurious experience in marvelous Antigua. But the best thing about this villa - it has an absolutely fantastic sunset view. The best part of my vacation, was lounging by the pool area, relaxing as the sun sets.

Great villa and great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Villa Sunset July 2014 and had an amazing time. The pictures are very accurate and really do give you a great idea about how the house will be for your stay. The house and the views are stunning, and the accommodations were top notch. Our beds were so comfortable, the whole group couldn't stop raving about them. The maid service and management group were very nice and helpful, (the maid service came every other day and kept the place clean and neat). The boutique hotel below was also great. We used the gym, went to the spa and had dinner and drinks at Carmichaels (delicious!!). I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in Antigua, it's the way to go.

Beautiful house and view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and daughter stayed here for 10 days. Waking up to the breathtaking view every morning made us want to spend the whole day there and we did for several days. But its close proximity to other activities allowed us to explore the island with ease. The house is full stocked with every amenity. Grilling and dining in the outdoor dining area are a must at sunset where you'll see some of the most beautiful sunsets on the island. The infinity pool was spectacular day and night; bedrooms are air conditioned and have all the comforts of home. Jolly Harbor is just 2 minutes away by car with a beautiful beach and several good restaurants. We liked The Acropolis, Melini's and Al Porto. And be sure to visit the fish and chips place with the double decker bus in front. Joe, who runs it, is great and the fish and chips excellent. If you rent this house, you won't be disappointed.

You may never want to leave Villa Sunset but perhaps you venture out to explore what the island has to offer, Jolly Harbour is right across the street. The bustling Jolly Harbour Marina can take you on various boating excursions, scuba diving, snorkeling and sport fishing trips. There are beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants, and bars. The Marina complex even offers an 18-hole golf course, tennis and squash courts.

In Jolly Harbour is where you will find many fabulous restaurants, grocery shopping, pharmacy, banking, ice cream and coffee shops. Further down the road about 5-8 minutes you will find Darkwood beach, Turners beach, Valley Church beach, and Coco bay.

The capital of Antigua, St. John, is only a 10-minute drive away where you will find local markets of delicious food, restaurants and lots of shopping.

The airport is approximately a 20-minute drive from the villa.

You may want to explore the heritage of Antigua at Nelson Dockyard and stunning views from the local gathering at Shirley Heights on Sundays, furthermore, enjoy the excitement of Carnival, Cricket and Sailing week.

We love sailing and scuba diving. Morning walks on the beach searching for beach glass then stopping in some of the charming beach huts for a late lunch or early dinners, like at Jackie O’s. Exploring the island and ending up at Shirley Heights. Buying fresh fish or lobster at the marina 10 minutes down the road. Dark Wood beach, snorkeling the reefs right off the coastline or Turners beach and Jolly beach only minutes away. A special dinner at Sheer Rock, you’ll never forget. And not to mention cocktails at the local beach bars, all minutes from Sunset. Hang with the locals at weekly fish fries, or head to St. Johns for local markets abundant with fresh fruits and veggies. Feel like exploring, hop in your car and try dining at Blue Water, Le Bistro or Cecelia’s. Be casual at Cloggy’s or the Mad Mongoose after the beach or island trek. Or head back at Villa Sunset with a glass of wine with stunning panoramic views. These are some of our favorites. Enjoy!
