About Sue Farnworth

Hi, I'm Sue and have had the pleasure of owning Calabash Villa for the last 5 years during which time we have enjoyed many family holidays at all times of the year. Before settling on Antigua we considered many places, eventually checking out Antigua which ticked all our boxes, English speaking, warm and sunny all year round, beautiful beaches and scenery and friendly people. We furnished the villa to create a modern, light, spacious design that lights up as the sun shines in through the many windows. We always feel uplifted whether in the villa, on the deck, in the pool or on the beach, the blue sky, turquoise sea and lush greenery colour everything.

Sue Farnworth purchased this villa in 2007

Why Sue Farnworth chose Jolly Harbour

Alan and I bought our villa in 2007 and we have been visiting ever since often with our two grown up children and their partners and my elderly Mum who absolutely loves Antigua. We often spend Christmas and New Year in Antigua and would recommend Sailing week (late April) and not forgetting Carnival ( August). Calabash is ideally positioned, all the conveniences of Jolly Harbour Marina and with several beautiful beaches within minutes. For those wanting to explore the islands many sights, travel north to the colourful St. John's, Fort James and Dickinson Bay or turn south along the scenic Fig Tree drive to Falmouth harbour, English harbour and the historic Nelsons Dockyard.

What makes this villa unique

You do not need to have a car to enjoy our villa, being within walking distance of Jolly Harbour with it's restaurants, bars, shops and golf course, beautiful Jolly Beach & Valley Church Beach with beach chairs, sailing etc. For those wanting to explore further you can hire a car from Jolly Harbour for a few days and see the many sites and history of the island. On returning to the villa after time on the beach you can cool off in the pool, enjoy the sun loungers with drinks and look forward to your own BBQ as the sun sets.

There is a Management team who are happy to help you with any sight seeing arrangements and assist you during your stay at the villa.

Family vacation enjoyed by all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time relaxing for our week stay. The villa is close to everything in Jolly Harbour, great restaurants, Marinas even delivered. The villa is clean and they have everything you need and the staff are fantastic. We rented a golf cart but this can only be used in Jolly Harbour and not to be driven on the main road. Our days were spent relaxing on the beach or in the pool. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Lovely villa, great area, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Booking was easy and Sue answered all our questions quickly. It was lovely to be met at the airport by Glenmore the taxi driver that Sue uses, he was so informative on the best things to see and do and we were able to make contact with him many times during our stay. The management company met us on arrival at the villa with initial info and were easily contactable after that. The Calabash is a well equipped, clean, spacious villa with a great sized pool and well kept grounds. There are towells in abundance and the villa was completely cleaned every 3 days. The air conditioning was invaluable and the alarm system was easy to use when we were out. Jolly Harbour is a five minute walk away, via a partly unfinished road, if this bothers you then hiring a golf buggy in the Harbour is easy and reasonably priced. It didn't bother us and we were a group ranging in age from 10yrs to 88yrs. There are torches to use for the walk back at night. Jolly beach is only a few minutes walk further than the Harbour, it really is beautiful and great for snorkelling as well as relaxing. Cocktails and snacks at Castaways are highly recommended, if you need a break from the beach. The supermarket is in Jolly Harbour, it is expensive so you just need to budget accordingly. Bizarrely, it sells Waitrose goods! We visited in low season, so many restaurants were closed, but Akropolis and Miracles remained open. Melinis and the Crow's Nest closed whilst we were there, but we did manage a visit to both. All provided great food. There is a bank for changing money in the Harbour, just be prepared for a wait! We found using Easter Caribbean dollars and credit cards easiest. A plus of visiting in low season was that the beaches were empty - make sure you make the short trip to Valley Church beach and Ffryes beach - get the bus it's easy and cheap. Catch the Cat Charters and Paddles Snorkel and Kayak Eco Adventure are both fantastic things to do. Hurricane Irma raised her ugly head towards the end of our stay. We received ample reassurance from the management company and Sue made contact several times from the UK to check that we were OK. We left just a few hours before it hit, but have been in contact with Sue and local people many times since. All are safe, the villa remains untouched and the island is as beautiful as ever, do not let the recent events put you off visiting. Thanks Sue and all the Calabash team for your concerns and for a fantastic holiday.

Everything about this Villa was perfect.

We stayed for two weeks and our group consisted of 6 adults and 2 Young children.

The Villa is immaculate and spacious, you can see that Sue who is the owner takes so much pride and passion in even the smallest of details. Everything looks Brandnew.

The Villa is equipped with everything you could imagine, from small details like a Cocktail blender to cool boxes to take to the beach.

Bed linen, towels, beach towels were a plenty.

Barbecue outside, so clean we felt guilty for using it !

Aircon and fans throughout the property.

You can even change the colour of the lighting in the kitchen by remote control.

Great strereo, that had a good bass and wasn't tinny.

The Management Company were brilliant, came out every 3-4 days to clean the house from top to bottom and regularly came by to treat the pool and check everything was ok. Very professional and friendly.

Outside area was great, beautiful landscaped garden that attracted Hummingbirds and many other birds.

Plenty of sun loungers and out door seating. The love seat, great for taking time out and reading a book.

The Swimming pool was great, big enough to swim or to just take a dip

Location wise, you couldn't ask for better. Jolly harbour has fingers and the problem with this is that it that if you are located on one of those fingers it's a distance to anywhere.

Calabash is based on the Palm ( looking at my hand as I write!). So everything is close to hand, everything is 5-10 mins walk. The Supermarket and the Marina being the closest, this is also where the core of the restaurants are.

Beach is a stroll of about 10 mins and Jolly beach is fantastic.

You can hire Golf Carts out for about £15 a day, you can use these all over jolly harbour and much fun.

If you instead walk to the left out of the property you will see a children's play area that is 2 mins walk, there are many cheap places to eat and in some cases as cheap as the Supermarket. Island Pizza and the Red London bus which does Fish and chips to name a few.

I would like to thank Sue and the Management Company for making us feel so welcomed, before and after we landed. Always happy and quick to answer any questions, however trivial.

Thank you from myself and all the Family.

Calabash will stay in hearts and Memories forever
