About Mark and Teresa Ayre

We are Mark and Teresa Ayre from the UK.

Our villa is primarily our own holiday home, comfortably furnished and equipped for our family's needs. Due to work/school commitments we are only able to visit two or three times a year, so we have decided to rent the villa out, so that others can enjoy the island at a reasonable cost. During our visit this summer (2014) we arranged to have a new, fully tiled deck installed and to invest in new air conditioning throughout the villa. This work is now completed!

Mark and Teresa Ayre purchased this villa in 2004

Why Mark and Teresa Ayre chose St. John

The villa is ideally situated for a relaxing holiday. Close to both the beach and shopping centre it is simple to pop back and forth throughout the day, allowing you to split your days between sea (and pool) , shopping and siesta with ease. Jolly Harbour is a great base to allow you to explore the rest of the island, although with one of the best beaches in Antigua on your doorstep, many guests do not venture far!

What makes this villa unique

Free wi-fi in the villa with HBK log in code. Fully furnished deck, overlooking the bay and 'Sleeping Indian Mountain'. Balcony from Master bedroom too!

New fully tiled and secure deck and new inverter air con units to all main living areas (living room and both bedrooms).

fantastic property close to stunning beach.

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for renting us your fantastic holiday home! Our family had a great week in jolly harbour. we have travelled to many beautiful places around the world, but all feel that the beach here is the best with the most amazing coloured water ever! Our girls (9 and11) loved the golf cart. All of the restaurants were good, we really liked Portofino and Karaoke night at Castaways was great fun, ,the staff here were great. Mervyn at the beach was fantastic with our girls (thank-you!) Get out and about round the island, beaches are fabulous, road signs are shocking!! We had a great day trip to Barbuda and saw whales on the way home. We stayed at Grand Pineapple beach hotel for the second week so the girls could have friends, but for value for money our self catering week (eating out every night ) beat the hotel hands down. We would love to stay again and highly recommend this property as the owners and the staff at HBK were faultless, HBK staff were always cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you all very much.

Wonderful!

Stayed here on March 15th through 22nd and couldn't be happier with anything! We tried to think of something to complain about but really couldn't! Villa was beautiful, furniture well kept and up to date. All appliances worked great! View was terrific. Management Co, HBK bent over backwards many times. Theresa was really helpful with what to bring and setting us up with a golf cart. Jolly Harbor was fun to explore and restaurants are plentiful and Supermarket is great! Would definitely go back and advise all to check it out! Mary Lou and David Travis

A great holiday

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I have just come back from having had a month in Jolly Harbour. We had a fantastic holiday and had everything we needed there. Our Cleaners were lovely and the Management Agents were really helpful. The house was basic but was clean and comfortable.The beds were really comfy and the water was always hot! We hired a buggy for the time we were there and as we were golfers and we could use it on the course it was well worth it. We mostly self catered and found the supermarket mainly on a par with England. The most expensive things were, crisps, chocolate and milk, but as you could buy a litre of Gin or Whiskey for less than £5 and Chilean Cab Sauv.for £3 a bottle it all balanced out! A couple of days into our stay the bugman knocked on the door to spray round the doors and under cupboards and it obviously worked as we only saw 2 cockroaches that we found already dying in the whole month we were there. We did make sure we took our rubbish up to the bins each evening before we went to bed and this probably helped. We had a few mosi bites but mainly in the evening in the restaurants, I had taken Boots Repel out but went to the Pharmacy and bought Off for 28EC which was better especially regards the sand flies . Spray before you go to photograph the amazing sunsets.
Regards eating out we ate at Mellinis a couple of times ...lovely but pricey but service was fantastic. We also ate a couple of times in the Crows Nest ..the fish and chips on Friday were amazing but such huge portions we asked to share one and that was no problem. They even cooked a special one for us on our last but one night even though it wasn't on the evenings menu. Happy hour there was 4-6pm each day and as it served the pool and had free WiFi we seemed to gravitate there most days. One Sunday we went to Lydias (on the beach) which is part of The Jolly Beach Resort ..just walk to the end of South Beach.. they charged 43US each but it was a 3 course buffet lunch with all drinks inc and a fantastic Steel Band.
Jolly beach was amazing, we didn't have any trouble with beds or umbrellas ..just ask for Marvin at Castaways. There was a bit of vying for business but they soon got to know us . The vendors were polite and not pushy at all. As we had the buggy we quite often gave lifts to gardeners, delivery boys, beach sellers ..everyone was just so friendly. This was our third time in Antigua but our first time of self catering and we love it! We will definitely be coming back!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Hey Teresa, Just a short note to say thank you and how much we enjoyed our stay in Antigua. The villa was wonderful and we felt very much at home there. The service companies you use HBK are very good coming in every other day to change the bed linen and towels which we very much appreciated. We would definitely recommend it to our friends and family. Our tans have faded but our memories haven't!

We spent October half term with the children at Jolly Harbour and had a wonderful time. The villa was exactly as described and Teresa's information and advice leading up to our stay allowed us to relax as soon as we arrived.
We hired a golf cart from Randy for the week (he can arrange most things for you during your stay) and split our time between the white sandy beach and the pool. The harbour restaurants were slightly quiet as it was low season, however you still needed to book the fabulous Italian on the North finger who ran daily specials throughout the week. The supermarket although pricey is well stocked and sell the largest spicy chicken pieces I have ever seen - KFC should take note! A visit into tax free St Johns is a must as is a trip to Shirley Heights (only open on Sundays off peak as we found out)! We hired a car for around £30 for the day and managed to explore the entire beautiful island. Most days ended with happy hour cocktails at Castaways Beach Bar watching the sun set. If you are looking for a peaceful beach getaway in a stunning location then look no further. We will definitely return, if Teresa will have us that is!!
