About Anne & Connie

We have been travelling to the Caribbean for the past 7 years and decided to travel to Antigua in March 2012. We landed in Jolly Harbour and realized this place was just ‘different’ than other locations we travelled to. Towards the end of our holiday, we started to ask ourselves if this is a place we would love to return to and we all agreed! It offers you everything you need and everyone is so welcoming! It is a piece of paradise that you have to experience! We loved Jolly Harbour so much, we decided to purchase a piece of Paradise!

We now want to share our Paradise with you! If you are looking for a get-away and a place to relax, refresh and unwind, Gatzby Apartment is the perfect location to start your journey. The location is one of the best in the South Finger!

Anne & Connie purchased this apartment in 2012

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with Gatzby Apartment for so many reasons! The location of the apartments was amazing. Being able to walk out the front door and be at the beach in one minute was amazing! Castaways Beach Bar is wonderful and the staff –more so! You get a sense of being part of the Community right away!

Gatzby offers you a true Paradise experience! You have everything you need at your fingertips, however, if you want to venture out, you are only a short drive away from other scenic locations in Antigua! We can also provide you with contacts for your excursions as well!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Anne and Connie, We had a wonderful holiday in Antigua (first time we had been there) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lower Gatzby, thanks. We found the apartment to be ideally situated for the beach and other amenities and very well equipped and comfortable. Being able to breakfast out on the deck and watch the pelicans diving was a constant pleasure. We had no need of a golf cart as we could easily walk to the supermarket and to several of the restaurants. We took the local bus into St John’s a couple of times and had fun doing so. We rented a car for the second week of our stay and were able to explore much of the island and realized that Jolly Harbour is probably the best place to be for self catering. Amy and Margot could not have been more helpful and welcoming. All in all, a great stay in a great place. You ask for suggestions and the only ones we can come up with are that the provision of some place mats would help preserve the table tops and some extra lighting over the sink area would help when preparing meals. We hope to be back in Antigua in the future. With best wishes, Rosemary and Stuart

Great apartment in Jolly Harbour

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Upper Gatzby apartment for two weeks and had a great time. The apartment is less than a minute walk from the South Beach in Jolly Harbour (and Castaways beach bar) and a few minutes' walk from the Epicurean Supermarket. We wanted an easy beach vacation with the option of cooking most of our meals, so this was perfect. Porch has a lovely view of one of the "channels" of the harbour-we ate most of our meals outside here. Only thing we would have liked to have was more up-to-date cooking equipment (i.e., almost all of the knives were dull). Overall, a great place to stay for a relaxing vacation in Antigua-we had a great time.

Excellent Apartment in Jolly Beach Harbour

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Lower Gatsby Apartment for a week in February and we had an amazing time! The cab we had booked through TT Villas was waiting for us when we landed, even though our plane was at least a half hour late. The apartment was our private oasis while we were on the island. We were a minute walk from the beach, which was so beautiful, and about a 4-5 minute walk from the grocery store. We made use of the bbq throughout the week and only ate out three times. The apartment was clean, well-situated, and the deck was fabulous- a perfect place to enjoy the wine and other goodies waiting for us when we checked in! The king-sized bed was comfortable and loved the layout of the washroom. We really can't say enough about our vacation, we are planning to book the apartment again! We highly recommend the Lower Gatsby apartment on the beautiful island of Antigua.

"The Perfect Location."

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a wonderfully relaxing month in Lower Gatzby in December 2013. The apartment is situated in a great location close to the amazing Jolly Harbour beach and just a short walk to the Supermarket and other amenities. The apartment has everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay holiday with a BBQ on the decking that is perfect for al fresco dining on the evenings. The property is kept in excellent condition and Margot & Amy (the management team) are always on hand to give any assistance you may need. We would not hesitate for a minute in recommending Lower Gatzby to friends, although, we would also like to keep it to ourselves..!!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Lower Gatzby and would struggle to fault it. We booked the holiday with Typically Tropical Villas and the service was second to none.

Margret and Amy were friendly, efficient and always there to help. They did everything from providing us with all the information we needed before we arrived i.e maps and directions to Gatzby. They made sure that there was someone to meet us at the property to show us around and go through where everything was.

During the stay we were able to call or visit them at any time to book trips or ask advise about the area.

If you are looking to book a stay at Lower Gatzby be aware that the photos do not do the property justice. The open plan living area and kitchen is a great size with everything you will need through the holiday. By far the best part of Gatzby is the out side area, the view over the harbor is fantastic, and it is equipped with a seating areas, sun beds and a barbecue.

We spent lots of time exploring Jolly Harbor and in our eyes the location of Gatzby is perfect. It is a stone through from the beach, bars, restaurants and shops.

We would not hesitate to recommend Lower Gatzby to anyone and would defiantly return! Fantastic.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Lower Gatzby was everything we hoped it would be, we wanted a week to just chill out and that's exactly what we had. The apartment was very well fitted out and had everything you could wish for, wifi was a really lovely surprise as we could keep in touch with our family,

The apartment was lovely and clean with plenty of towels, the only thing you need to take are beach towels.

I would definitely recommend the Lower Gatzby, for a lovely relaxing rest.

Thank you

We really enjoyed a stay in Lower Gatzby. We loved decking, where we could watch pelicans diving for fish from the comfort of our own sun beds. From here the beautiful beach was less than 2 minutes away. 5 minutes in the other direction found the supermarket and restaurants and bars. A few minutes more to Miracles a super local restaurant.

The apartment is very comfortable, clean and well appointed. We were very impressed by the friendly efficient service from Amy & Margot at Typically Tropical who were looking after us.
