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

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.

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.

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 will not be Disappointed!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been renting villas throughout the Caribbean over the last ten years. Often we have arrived and the pictures on line don't always depict reality. It seems photographers have an uncanny ability to hide the fact that some villas are dated and in need of updates. NOT THE CASE at Villa Sunset. The pictures on line accurately depict reality and when we arrived our expectations were exceeded from what we were expecting. The views, sunsets, and location are second to none!!!! Impeccably clean throughout with top notch linens and towels. As others have noted the kitchen is equipped with all you would need to prepare any gourmet meal. It was just me and my wife so privacy was a given but I will vouch for other posts that reference the layout and the ability for couples to find private space if need be. We rented a car and I would strongly recommend that. Not that you couldn't walk to the grocery store/restaurants or take advantage of Sugar Ridge's shuttle service, it's just much more convenient to have your own car and the walk up the hill to the house is taxing. Sunny Rentals at Sugar Ridge dropped the car at the house prior to my arrival and picked it up after my departures. I believe the airport transfers are a must. Roads are not marked well on the map and the ride with the taxi drivers allows for getting the feel of that. For those from the US, I also recommend renting the jeep as the steering wheel is on the left side. Driving on the opposite side of the road is one thing, couple that with a steering wheel on the right and it gets down right confusing.....lol. We toured all four corners of the Island but in the end, everything we needed, or wanted to do (sit on the beach for the most part) was within three miles of the villa. As others noted we had great meals at Al Porto, Mellini's, Sheer Rocks was the best and, only a so so meal at Carmichaels. Ana's at Dickenson bay is great for lunch and La Tartaruga in Long Bay was great for lobster! The latter ties in nice with visiting Devils Bridge. Lastly, I cannot say enough about the ease of dealing with Marc the owner and the entire staff at Lush Locations including the housekeeper(s). We have a few more Islands to check off our bucket list but we'll be back!

Absolute Bliss!

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous location with wonderful sweeping views across the sea/hills/harbour and with the islands of Montserrat and Redonda on the horizon. The attention to detail and quality of furnishings and decor is really outstanding and the owners really have great taste! The most comfortable beds ever. Great bathrooms! Excellent layout ensuring a real sense of privacy and space for all guests. Being very close to, IMOP, the best beaches and nicest stretch of coast on the entire island, Villa Sunset also has v easy access to many great places to eat, from fine dining to beach bars - in fact we cant think of a better location on the island. We tried: Turners, Dennis', Al Porto, Sugar Club, Carmichaels, Al Porto, Sheer Rocks, Oceano's, Mellini's, Shells Fish and Chips - all of these are literally minutes away by car and some are walkable. We swam stingrays, visited Shirley Heights, Nelson's Dockyard (great place for lunch, try Admirals Inn or Copper and Lumber Store), Fig Tree Drive, Half Moon Bay, ST Johns twice for shopping, drove round the entire island stopping here and there at lovely churches, enticing beaches, pit stops for delicious food and a rum punch! A private 1/2 day sail with delicious lunch a Catamaran (various operators in Jolly Harbour Marina) was great too! Do try the local produce from the roadside stalls esp on Fig Tree Drive, if you love tropical fruits you are in for a real treat. Antigua is gorgeous, the Antiguans are friendly and welcoming, and the caring property owners are delightful to deal with. Would go back to Villa Sunset without any hesitation, it is superb!!

STUNNING VILLA, FABULOUS LOCATION, BEAUTIFUL VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We are so happy we chose Villa Sunset for our family vacation!
Everything fell into place so effortlessly, thanks to owner Marc and his wonderful management team at Villa Management. Taxis, rental cars, excursions - they take care of everything!
After a delicious lunch at Cecelias, near the airport, our taxi brought us to our amazing, spotless villa, perched high overlooking beautiful Jolly Harbour! We were delighted with the beauty of our vacation home! Beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and every amenity we could want. Three master bedroom suites with luxurious beds and showers. The Infinity Pool was a favorite! The kitchen was stocked with all we needed for our meal preparations, although with so many delicious restaurants nearby, we only ate dinner at the villa once!

Marc and Villa Management, as well as previous visitors, provided very helpful and accurate recommendations for beaches, excursions, and restaurants. Just wish we had more time to visit them all!

I would like to recommend Cecelias (excellent Rum Punch) , Dennis at Ffryes Beach (the Grilled Lobster was delicious), Al Porto for two-for-one price pizza on Tuesdays, and Sheer Rocks! I can't say enough about the sunset experience at Sheer Rocks. Gorgeous, and just minutes from the villa.
We took a taxi to Shirley Heights for the Sunday BBQ and enjoyed the fun! Awesome Steel Drum Band and another music group with an incredible singer! We stayed until 8 pm
but wish we had stayed a bit longer. Take a taxi though - it is about 35 minute drive!
Best leaving the driving to the island experts! Especially if you are American and not used to driving on the opposite side of the road!

We were happy to have a car at our disposal, and the grocery store in Jolly Harbour had everything we needed!

You will be so happy if you rent Villa Sunset! It is everything the description and photos tell and more! We wish we were still there!

LOVELY VILLA, SPECTACULAR VIEWS, LUXURY PLUS

  • 5 of 5
Having traveled throughout the Caribbean over the past 20 years, we can say without reservation that Antigua is one of our favorite islands and Villa Sunset an extraordinary home and one of our favorites. The photos truly depict the upscale quality of the villa and the high level of comfort and attention to detail that sets Villa Sunset a standard above the rest. The views from the balcony and infinity pool are spectacular and our best pictures of brilliant sunsets and rainbows were taken there - no need to search further - the panoramic scenery is breathtaking and soul restoring.

We loved having 3 master suites. The rooms are beautifully appointed, comfortable and all the same size with king beds and spa like bathrooms. We had no equipment issues with which to deal, the AC in each suite kept us cool at night and the tropical breezes kept the insects away from the main living areas and pool/balconies.

We all enjoy cooking and the kitchen was perfectly suited to our needs. We also enjoyed grilling fresh snapper on the spotless patio grill and eating outside by candlelight and viewing the beautiful harbor lights below. There are a number of nice restaurants in the vicinity if you prefer dining out. A car is needed for getting about, but you are within a couple of minutes to nice dining as well as fabulous beaches and turquoise blue waters with gentle waves.

The owner's hospitable touch are felt from the very first moment you arrive and the very last minute when you depart. After traveling all day to reach our destination, we were thrilled with our "welcome" tray of "eats and drinks." Additional little extras included beach chairs and cooler and we loved the use of the wonderful gym within a 2-3 minute walk. The housekeeper kept everything spotless and was pleasant and helpful.

Our recommendations for dining out would include Acropolis (Greek), Al Porto (Italian),
Dennis's (West Indian), Sheer Rocks (upscale and delicious - built into a rock formation overlooking the water). These are all with a 5-10 minute drive. Another lovely restaurant about 45 minutes away on Pigeon Beach by the English Harbour is Catherine's - fab lunch or dinner.

You won't be disappointed in Villa Sunset. It is exactly as pictured and described. Our group ranged in age from 30 to 60 and everyone was thrilled with the home and surroundings. The owner is very user friendly and approachable and takes great care to be sure all needs are met. We cannot wait to return!

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!
