About Elton Ash

We grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada and currently live in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. We are adjusting to being empty-nesters as our 4 daughters are on their own now. We bought this property as we knew a number of people who lived here year round and felt confident in the safety and security of the island and resort.

Antiguans are very friendly and kind-hearted. We eventually plan to spend our winters here and use Jolly Harbour as our base to cruise the Caribbean.

We really enjoy the opportunity to share our little piece of paradise with you.

Elton Ash purchased this villa in 2005

Why Elton Ash chose St. Mary

We love Antigua and the friendly laid back lifestyle. Jolly Harbour is the only resort of its kind in the Caribbean where you can moor your boat right outside your patio. We also enjoy golf and can take advantage of the 18 hole championship course along with the terrific community atmosphere.

Jolly Harbour has everything you need from a fully stocked grocery store to several restaurants and bars along with shops, banking facilities, an internet cafe and rental companies.

What makes this villa unique

The North Beach is only 2 tenths of a mile away, a 5 minute walk from our villa. It is very quiet and secluded. If you want more action the South Beach has Castaways Beach Bar along with beach vendors.

Our villa faces east so you can enjoy the morning sun with your coffee overlooking the marina from the patio, then enjoy the shade in the afternoon.

Our villa has been completely remodelled to make it even more comfortable and up to date. From a new kitchen to oversized sliding glass doors to the patio you will enjoy your time here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just thought to write you a few lines about our stay at your villa. Please feel free to publish this review anywhere you see fit.



First, we'd like to tell you that the house was amazing. We found it very comfortable, well arranged and in a very secure area. We were very impressed with the balcony/patio setup right on the water. Sunrises were beautiful in the morning. I also would like to add that I found the shower outside the main door very practical and useful. Also, the house was very well furnished with all the amenities required, making it feel like home even more.



In general, we loved the island. The beaches were stunning and it wasn’t hard to navigate around. Although some of the places on the island were closed due to the slow season we got to spend more time at the beach, which we love. We found the locals to be helpful and very friendly. The Jolly Harbour complex seemed to be a prime location on the island and it was very nice staying there, we enjoyed all the bars and restaurants inside the complex.



Personally, both Enisa and I would like to thank you for all your help and advice on what to do. Your care and attention to detail for the people who stay at your home made our trip even more special.



Thanks,
Aug 2014

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Hi Elton & Jayne,
Thank you very much for letting us enjoy your villa, it was everything we needed and more! The villa itself was clean and well equipped as your other guests have mentioned. The washing machine was definitely a bonus. We cooked most of our meals in the villa and enjoyed them overlooking the water from the patio. We actually did not rent a golf cart and found all the walking to be very enjoyable. It was around 20 minutes to the Epicurean and 25 to Castaways and South Beach. We went swimming every day at the North beach, which was beautiful and even ventured down the beach around the point to find more secluded beaches. We tried to fit in as many activities as we could while we were there. The catamaran trip around the island was beautiful and well worth the $120. Although the snorkeling spot they chose wasn't the best, we still would recommend the trip. For great snorkeling we went to Cades Reef where we saw an abundance of beautiful fish and even a stingray! Thank you for letting us have the use of your golf clubs. We played a round of golf at the Jolly Harbour course which was beautiful as well. Also, we were able to pay a small fee to use the gym facilities at Jolly Harbour Golf Course. We did rent a car for three days from the Hertz in Jolly Harbour for $35/ day plus a $20 driver’s license. The car allowed us the freedom to explore the island. We went to the Saturday morning food market in St. John to stock up on fresh produce and ventured from Devil's bridge to Nelson's Dockyard, all worth visiting. The two weeks we spent at Jolly Harbour was the most relaxing holiday we have had yet.
Thanks again.

Fantastic villa on the water.

  • 5 of 5
This villa was really great. The kitchen is well stocked, furniture is comfortable, it is immaculate, and it is located right on the harbor. We were a five minute walk from the beach, and the entire property is walkable. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recognition, we work very hard to ensure our vacation home is well maintained and serviced. Although the resort is walkable, it is very spread out. We recommend a car or a golf cart rental to assist in getting around.

Perfect spot for a quiet vacation

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed staying at this property. Well-appointed with everything we needed and more, this villa was the perfect starting point to explore the island and offered a quiet oasis to come home to in the evening. We appreciated how so many of the residents in Jolly Harbor live in Antigua full-time and were able to offer friendly advice about the island. It was wonderful staying in a real community and not in a big, impersonal resort. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone traveling to Antigua.

Jolly Harbour Villa

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed the Jolly Harbour Vila as a comfortable base from which to explore the western side of the island. The numerous beaches are beautiful, though the more private or remote beaches do require a car.

Every thing we needed was available. We enjoyed the deck in the mornings. The nearby italian restaurant was very good. There are several other restaurants within walking distance in the resort area. The grocery, though resembling nothing very local, had everything we needed and was convenient. Otherwise, there are allot of fruit stands to stop at while out and about in the car. Thank You for the nice facilities. j&j

Perfect

I agree with everything that has been said below and I would like to add my thanks to you for the opportunity to make myself at home in your villa. (The shower head was repaired, by the way.) The fact that the patio faces east was a bonus for me as sunrise is my favourite time of the day. I was there during a full moon and was blessed with the opportunity of sitting on the patio and watching it rise over the hills as the tree frogs chirped pleasantly all around.

I thank you for recommending a car rental as there is so much to see on the island. It also allows one to meet the locals when one gets lost. I met many polite and friendly Antiguans in this manner.

Aside from the Sunday fun-filled evening barbecue at Shirley Heights and the fascinating history of Nelson's Dockyard your guests must visit little-known Valley Church Beach which is about a five minute drive south of Jolly Harbour. The beach is pristine, there are plenty of shady palm trees nearby and the Nest Bar & Restaurant serves a deep fried coconut shrimp dish with a home made sauce that is to die for.

I would also recommend any one of the Adventure Antigua boat tours. I took the full day eXtreme tour which circumnavigates the whole island with several stops that you cannot get to by car, including a swim in Rendezvous Bay, snorkelling near English Harbour and feeding the fish at Stingray City. A tasty hot lunch and refreshments are served on a quiet secluded beach. The crew will also provide you with a wealth of unique information about the island.

My ten days were not enough and I would gladly return at your villa. It's perfect.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Dear Elton,

I wanted to apologize for taking so long to send you this letter, but it seems like time has slipped quickly by once we returned from our vacation in Antigua.

My boyfriend, Rob, and I stayed at your villa in late September and had an absolutely wonderful time. We found your home to be exactly what we were looking for and we couldn’t have been more pleased when we arrived. The villa was clean, spacious, modern, and we felt very comfortable and safe throughout our stay. We enjoyed making breakfast each morning in the kitchen before the start of our day, and felt right at home from the minute we arrived. We particularly enjoyed the location of the villa and found Jolly Harbor to be an ideal spot. It was lovely looking out onto the water from your patio at night and seeing the harbor lit up so beautifully…..and, I could go on forever about how truly, genuinely amazing Antigua is, as well as it’s beaches, and the people who reside there! We made so many wonderful memories.

I was remiss in not writing to you sooner, but wanted to make sure you knew that we appreciate all the time and courtesy you offered in answering our many questions prior to our visit, and most importantly, that you have a lovely home, and we were delighted to have the opportunity to stay there during our vacation.

Thank you again Elton! We look forward to our next opportunity to visit Antigua, and hopefully have the chance to stay at your villa once again!

Best Regards,

K & R

Antigua is reputed to have 365 beaches, one for everyday of the year. Diving, snorkelling, site-seeing you will run out of holiday before you run out of things to do. Or if your idea of a great holiday is to simply lounge on the beach enjoying sun downers at Castaways, you will feel right at home here. You will want to see Nelson's Dockyard at English Harbour, Shirley Heights, Harmony Hall Art Gallery and Sea View Farm Village; maybe catch a Cricket match or browse the duty free shops at Heritage Quay in St. John's. You can be as busy or as relaxed as you want to be. A vacation is all about what you want to do.

Golf: Jolly Harbour has its own golf course. We have a set of left and right handed clubs that guests are free to use. We only ask that lost balls be replaced and the clubs cleaned afterwords.
