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!!
