Order your favorite drink and enjoy the view of the Caribbean. Watersports are plentiful. You can rent jet skis (great fun), a sunfish sailboat, catamaran, kayak, para-sail, take a ride on a blow-up-tube, go for a speed boat ride, wind surf and more.

About Joseph Golubov

I love fishing, snorkeling, jet-skiing, relaxing on the beach, swimming in the beautiful blue water and watching the humming birds on the patio.

Joseph Golubov purchased this villa in 2005

Why Joseph Golubov chose St. Mary

Antigua is a beautiful Island with the most magnificent blue water. Jolly Harbour is a great area of Antigua which contains just about anything that you could want or need including, but not limited to golf course, boat rentals, swimming pool, grocery store, restaurants, gift shops, snorkeling, tennis, marina, fishing, car rental, golf cart rental, bank, beach bar/restaurant, jet ski rentals, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visited in February 2011. This villa is in a fantastic location on the waterside with beautiful views over the harbour. It is also three minutes from a very quiet sandy beach which we had to ourselves most of the time, excellent for evening swims with the Pelicans' fishing all around.

The villa was spotlessly clean and well appointed, the beds and sitting room furniture were comfortable We experienced swimming with Stingrays, Zip lining in the forests, snorkelling on the Coral Reef and having hired a car we were able to explore more of this lovely Island, We loved the local restaurants and the restaurant by the swimming pool did very good breakfasts. The Supermarket was well stocked and reasonable priced. The indigenous population are so friendly and gentle.

Our time in Antigua was enhanced by the support and the provision of excellent information by the owner.

We were very grateful for that.

We would recommend this villa and Antigua to our friends and are looking forward to revisiting this delightful place ourselves.

Nice place to stay, quiet but needs alittle updating

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for 8 days at this villa and it was a nice unit. We had GLEN pick us up from the airport, whom Joe recommended and was great and we used glen all week when we were not using our Golf cart to drive around!! When we got there and started to settle in we loved the view of the unit and how close the north beach and south beach Was. There was a lot of cleaning that we needed to do. The dishes were pretty dirty and everything needed washed and cleaned. There was 1 days worth of toilet paper, paper towels, and no dish washing items. I would recommend sending this info to other renters so they can add that into the budget for the week. The patio was large and comfortable but the patio furniture needs to be updated alittle. I think we were supposed to have 1 cleaning while we were there and no one came. Joe was amazing at giving us info about the area and the unit. He was fast to respond and we would definitely stay there again. Just alittle cleaning and updating and this would have been a perfect experience. I would definitely recommend the Signal Hill hike, glen knows where to drop you off and pick up but the views are great and it is a pretty easy hike to do on your own, There is also a hike down to Rendezvous Bay that is about 1.5 hrs down and same back up. WE did it and loved it. Just bring plenty of water !!

I would also recommend the excellence boat tour to the near island of Barbuda and the bird sanctuaries!!! English harbor is a cool area as well and we were able to experience the REGATTA festival and was the reggae concert!!!

WE loved the island and will be back!

Owner's Response: I appreciate the comments and feedback. The satisfaction of my guests is very important to me and I am always looking for ways to make their stay at my Villa a great experience. Since I have a property management company that is responsible for the cleaning of the Villa, I was surprised and disappointed to hear that the dishes were not cleaned thoroughly. I will be sure to let my property manager know about this issue and correct it. Re: the cleaning during their stay, the property management company does a pre-arrival cleaning and a departure cleaning which is included in the rental fee. I let all my guests know that they can order additional cleanings from the management company during heir stay at a cost of $50 per cleaning. Some guests prefer to do their own cleaning while they are there. This policy allows me to keep my rental prices lower.

Absolutely Perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed at Joseph's villa for a week last april. First of all I must say thakyou to Joseph who made our Holiday absolutely perfect!! He gave me a great help while booking and then he sent me all the information I needed (ph.numbers, maps, best places to visit etc..), he arranged for the taxi for me fm the airport to Jolly H. where the property manager was waiting for us. we had a warm welcome upon arrival and he came back after a few days just to see if everything was ok. the villa is really nice, clean and comfortable, kitchen is fully equipped, a/c, tvsat, towels and beach towels and more. the villa is in a quiet place in North fingers and we really appreciated it. it was perfect for our needs, after a day spent in the South Beach we could relax in silence and peace. My husband and my son used to fish from the deck while I was relaxing in the terrace with a drink. Lovely place to have lunch in South beach is Castaways, they are very kind and the food is good. you can hire chairs and umbrella. As I have 2 children Jolly H. was a great choice because it's safe and there is everything you should need as a big market, pharmacy, shops, car-hire, taxi, swimming-pool and restaurants. we usually had lunch at the villa and enjoyed the restaurants for dinner like the Crow Nest where you can eat or only have a drink listening to good live music or like Melini's which is more romantic. I suggest to hire a buggy at Randy's to move around Jolly H. we also hired a car and spent a day around Antigua, I assure you it's worthwhile!! We also went to St.John's by bus, very cheap and funny, the bustop is just in front Jolly H. entrance

Just can't say enough how wonderful everything was.

I absolutely recommend this villa, a great place to stay.

thank you Joseph for making our Holiday the best!

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

This villa was everything we needed and more. Great views, comfortable beds, very clean, and all the essentials. The grill was a great plus as was the WIFI. The boat slip came in handy when we rented our fishing boat. Everything was in good or great condition. Would recommend to anyone.

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Antigua to visit our friends and we ended up renting this unit which was close to our friends, the beach, and Jolly Harbour! The condo was clean, comfortable, and everything we needed for our stay. The internet and TV were valuable for our young son who enjoyed the comforts of home. Thank you for providing such a great place at a reasonable rates!
