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.

Wow! Most excellent vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The property was in excellent shape and right on the water. Very well cleaned and maintained as all appliances worked including the gas BBQ grill on the back porch. The staff was very nice, very helpful, and very professional. It was the best vacation we've very had with a beautiful private beach only a 4 minute walk from the villa. Amazing sunsets, a huge variety of sea shells, and a very pleasant atmosphere. Plenty of alone time if you like or many nice restaurants, shops, and a grocery store inside the villa complex. Overall amazing wow experience!

Gorgeous view of the water!!

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from a 10 day vacation in Antigua. The villa is spacious, right on the bay with amazing views of marina and mountains. The villa is a good size, 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds. It was convenient to get around jolly harbour in the golf cart rental. 2 great beaches close by. The restaurants were fabulous, with great food, and friendly people. The villa had everything needed from a stocked kitchen, washer, ample drying space, wifi, and 2 tvs. We felt extremely safe in jolly harbour and definitely will be visiting again!!

Lovely villa in beautiful Antigua!!

  • 4 of 5

Villa is located in a private secure harbour. Villa was clean and stocked with all the essentials. Kitchen utensils, towels, extra blankets & pillows were all provided. We had everything we needed for our two week stay. A bottle of wine, water, juice,milk, and cookies were waiting for us upon arrival. Grill was exceptionally clean. I would caution against putting clothes in the washing machine. I think it has been used so often for towels it left fuzz balls all over all our clothes.

The management company went above & beyond to help us with any questions or issues we had. City water was shut off while we were there (completely beyond the managements control) they were prompt in informing us & switching to the cistern system. Several days later, I called concerned with how much water was available to us and they stopped within an hour WITH a water truck, checked the level & topped it for us to be safe.

The view from balconies is nice, you look across the harbour water rather than at another villa. Short walk to private north beach which is a shell seakers dream!! There were times we had the entire beach to ourselves!!

I would recommend renting a cart or a car for trips to the store, south beach, and various restaurants in the harbour area. Highly recommend Miracles for lobster (macaroni pie is a must try side!!) & Basilico for authentic Italian!

Antigua is a beautiful, safe island! This was our second trip to the island & we look forward to returning next year!!

Thank you Joseph for sharing your beautiful villa with us! And thank you to the management team for their prompt & courteous assistance during our stay!! ;)

This Property was acceptable but not 100%

  • 3 of 5

This unit was acceptable , however the unit could be presented with more clarity

1. The TV actually looked like a computer monitor screen in its picture , very small

2. No lighting in the living room

3. No information about water supplies being cutoff at any time and the back up Cistern not operable

4. Mgmt company on site will answer phone but response is delayed at least 12 hours if you get it.

5. Unit is right in front of sewage waste water discharge , very bad oder each evening

Owner's Response: I was very sorry and upset to see the review from the above guest. I take guest feedback very seriously and I always try to correct or improve any issues reported by guests assuming it is something that is under my control. I would like to point out that I have owned the Villa for 12 years and have been renting it out for 10 years. In the past 10 years, I have not had any complaints from any other guest about any of the items in the above review. That being said, I would like to respond to the specific items stated by the above review. 1. The TV in the living room is a 19 inch flat screen TV. If I do receive any other complaints, I will replace the TV with a larger TV. 2. The dining area and living room is a connected and open area. The two rooms are adjacent and there are numerous ceiling fixtures in the dining area. There is also a lamp in the in the living room. Again, I have not received any complaints about the lack of light in the living room from any other guest. If I do receive any other complaints in the future, I will add additional lighting in the living room. 3. Unfortunately, I have no control over the water supply at Jolly Harbour. It is my understanding that malfunctions with the Jolly Harbour water supply are very rare and if it does happen, it affects all of the Villas located in Jolly Harbour (over 1000 villas) not just my Villa. The Cistern system is there as a backup in the event there is a problem with the Jolly Harbour water supply. Obviously, if I was aware of a problem with the Cistern pump, I would have had it fixed as soon as I was notified. The pump was fixed after the property manager was notified. I am sorry that the above guest was unfortunate that the Jolly Harbour water supply malfunctioned and the Cistern pump malfunctioned at the same time. 4. My experience with the management company is that they are very professional and respond quickly to any problems reported by guests. If you read the other reviews of my Villa, you will see that many guests have commented on how professional and helpful the management company is. 5. I have never had a complaint from any other guest about any odor near my Villa. I was there from 8 Jan 2017 to 18 Jan 2017 and there was no odor. I checked with another guest that was there from 19 Jan 2017 to 25 Jan 2017 and they had no odor. The only reason I can think of is possibly a decaying dead animal was the cause of the odor when the above guest was at my Villa.

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.
