Overview

Saint Mary Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully furnished with 4 large bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 2 living areas

The Palms is a new luxury villa development set on a wooded hillside in a delightful valley location with fabulous panoramic views over Darkwood Beach and the turquoise sea beyond. Darkwood is a very scenic beach, an island favourite and certainly one of the most photographed beaches in the Caribbean. Still unspoilt, with the island of Montserrat in the distance, it has two good local beach bars and restaurants with beds and shade. The location is peaceful and serene, yet is only minutes way from Jolly Harbour and several other bars, restaurants and adjoining beaches.

Jolly Harbour is the largest and finest marina in the Caribbean with superb recreation facilities. A fine 18-hole golf course and a sports centre with tennis courts and a squash court cater for the actively minded, whilst the commercial centre has a wide range of shops, restaurants, bars, and a supermarket to sustain the needs for everyday living. For all its many amenities, Jolly Harbour remains a sophisticated and tranquil setting to while away the holiday hours.

About Howard and Cheryl Adams at Jolly Villas

We absolutely love Antigua. We came on a visit and hardly seem to have been away since. Antigua is the heart and soul of the Caribbean, an exotic tropical island with an abundance of palm-fringed beaches, warm sparkling seas, English-speaking and life-loving locals, a wealth of land and water based activities, a huge choice of delicious international cuisines, and a background soundtrack of calypso and reggae. No wonder we decided to make Antigua our second home.

Howard and Cheryl Adams at Jolly Villas purchased this villa in 2011

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We took a family vacation in July. We had a wonderful time at the Calabash. Jenny was the best! She was available to answer any questions or concerns that we had. There were a few maintenance issues, but Jenny ensured that it was taken care of in a timely manner.

The house was beautiful, it was a lot better in person. It was a shock having only a TV in the living area (with 8 people). However, it worked out great! We were able to disconnect from the TV. Something that we thought wouldn't be possible. The water is not drinkable, so you would need to buy bottles of water. Jenny even brought us a big bottle of water on our arrival.

The area was great and we never felt that we were not safe. The trip to St. John was a little longer that I anticipated, and the roads made it seem more longer.

Before the trip, I was a little nervous about booking on this website (always stayed in a hotel). However, Howard was available to answer all of my questions and walk me through this process that was unfamiliar to me.

Our family would definitely visit the Calabash again.

Thank you Howard and Jenny for such wonderful accommodation.

A stunning property and a fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our family chose this property in which to celebrate a BIG birthday and it didn't disappoint. The villa was beautifully constructed and decorated in a colonial style with original artwork throughout. It had everything that you could want as far as facilities were concerned including a Webber BBQ - of which we made extensive use. The villa is situated within the most picturesque part of the island of Antigua, a short walk away from the stunning Darkwood Beach (other lovely beaches were only a short drive away). We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to other discerning travellers.

R&R

  • 5 of 5

8 weary farming friends have just spent 10 glorious days at Calabash. It was everything it said it was! Comfortable, clean, quiet(except for the tree frogs sending you to sleep!) we couldn't have asked for more. Howard and Jenny made our stay at Calabash so easy, nothing was too much trouble. Eating out was no problem and would certainly recommend 'Miracles' A car is a must, this was organised for us as well. Darkwood Beach is gorgeous and just a nice walk down from the villa and super fish in the bar on the beach. Having read previous reviews, we took plenty of mosquito repellent and managed not to get too many bites!! Calabash will certainly be recommended by us all, thank you.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Calabash for just over a week. As a family of 4 (kids aged 6 and 9) the house had room to spare! The house itself is of a very high standard. Lovely towels and bed linen, moden decor etc. The kitchen is well equipt and we did a mixture of eating in and out. The pool is excellent and plenty big enough to swim in.

The location was also great. There is a beach just at the end of the road, you could walk in 15 minutes or so but we tended to drive. We spent a lot of time on Darkwood Beach and often had it essentially to ourselves. The beach cafe there has basic chips (fries) and hot dogs etc. but thier more "up market" food was really very good - excellent fried fish. There are other restaurants within a short drive.

Dealing with the property managers, especially Howard pre booking and Jenny while we were there was extremely easy. Good communication throughout and we felt that if we needed anything while we were there they wouln't have hesitated to help.

Ultimately, we wouldn't hestitate to recommend Calabash and hope to stay there again ourselves.

Truly lovely house with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Had an excellent weeks holiday. The house was very spacious, in a lovely quiet setting where all you could hear where the birds in the hills. View was outstanding. If we came back to Antigua we without doubt would come back here.

5-Star Villa - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 adults rented Calabash for 11 days. Everything from the booking process (thanks Howard), to the airport transfers, to on-site advice and support throughout our stay (thanks Jenny) was professionally handled. The villa itself is spacious and very well furnished and equipped - just as advertised. Dining in (actually out on the verandah looking out to Darkwoods Beach) was easy given the indoor and outdoor cooking facilities and proximity to the well stocked supermarket at Jolly Harbour, 10 minutes by car. There were some fine restaurants and beach bars locally also - we particularly enjoyed Sheer Rocks and J.O's. English Harbour and Shirley heights are must sees. Sailing on Jabberwocky was a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Calabash and Jolly Villas.
