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.

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!

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!

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
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!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
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!!

WISH I WAS THERE!!

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks at villa 227c on the South Finger of Jolly Harbour. This villa has a perfect location and has everything you need for a relaxed family holiday. The villa was perfectly proportioned for us a family of 4, with 2 kids aged 11 and 12. Upon arrival HBK were efficient and everything was as described, even the golf buggy was waiting! The South Finger of Jolly Harbour is the place to stay, Dont stay on the North - too far away from facilities and the beach! 227c was a one minute golf buggy ride (a 5-10 min walk depending how slowly you walk) from the most amazing beach i have ever seen. We have travelled a lot but our breath was taken away by the beach and the sea, it is the most amazing colour. There is no need to leave Jolly Harbour if you dont want to. Everything is there that you need, but i do recommend a golf buggy, it would be a long walk back from the Supermarket without one! Onsite restaurants/cafe/beach bar were all brilliant, had breakfast at the Starfish most days and enjoyed many lunches and evenings at Castaways on the beach. But everywhere we ate was lovely.
Had a few days out - best being Xmas day sunset BBQ at Shirley Heights - what a way to spend xmas day!! It is a must! We took a taxi on this occassion,the driver had lots of interesting knowledge to share, he also waited for us so we could leave whenever we wanted to, which was really good. We took the bus to travel around the island - do use the buses, they are cheap, regular, so simple to use and a real experience! It couldnt be easier the bus stops right next to the supermarket to go to St Johns and just at the top of the road to head the other way!
Jolly Harbour itself is very safe, very clean and very quiet. Security guards are everywhere - even on the beach from time to time, but it doesn't feel 'in your face', just feels safe and secure, which was very welcome.
Although we didnt cook, the kitchen was very well equipped, TV had cable which kept the kids entertained, DVD's from Europe dont work in the DVD player, but we found some board games and plenty of books to read!
We spent most of our time, when at the villa, out on the lovely deck, feeding the fish and the birds and enjoying watching the pelicans diving for fish!
In summary i would definately recommend Antigua, Jolly Harbour and this villa, Teresa (the owner)was very helpful throughout, prompt to respond to questions and very informative.

GREAT HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Teresa and Mark's villa from 14th to 28th January 2011 and this was our second time here, having come roughly the same time in 2010. The only reason we didn't leave a review last time was, selfishly, that we didn't want to advertise how good it was and wanted to keep it all to ourselves!!! This year though, we felt that Teresa and Mark deserved a positive review for being so helpful and having such a great property in a wonderful location.

Firstly, the villa was great - spotlessly clean and had all amenities required to have a great "self-catering" holiday which is what we prefer. The description on the website is 100% accurate and made for a great relaxing holiday. It's fantastic to get up in the morning and open the bedroom curtains to a spectacular view over the water and the mountains in the distance. The decking off of the living room was also great for sitting out at night and having a few beers and watch the fish jump, or to watch the humming birds in the afternoon. Overall, the villa was first class and we will definitely be returning.

Jolly Harbour itself is beautiful and has everything you need on site, including a quite large supermarket that stocks pretty much everything you need - only problem was they kept running out of Corona Beer, but Carib is just as nice anyway and actually cheaper!!! I've read some people saying that the supermarket is quite expensive but we didn't really find it too bad - some things are dearer, but with the cost of living in the UK currently through the roof, I have to say we didn't find much difference!

South beach in JH is absolutely stunning and is where we spent most of our days - only 5 mins (or less) walk from the villa. We've been to a few places around the Carribean - Barbados, Cuba, Dom Rep, and I have to say that the beach here beats anything else hands down - completely gorgeous and relatively quiet if you walk down slightly away from Castaways bar. A walk up Reeds Point at the end of the beach is well worth it too for tremendous views over the whole of Jolly Harbour and out to sea to Montserrat - brilliant for photographs.

We did some sightseeing too and I think the best day we had was at Nelson's Dockyard - if only just to see the massive yachts and see how the other half live - only downside was it made us extremely jealous!!

Overall, a fantastic villa in a fantastic location owned by a great couple who are incredibly helpful - we can't praise it highly enough!!
