About Elton and Jayne Ash

We grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada and currently live in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. We are adjusting to being empty-nesters as our 4 daughters are on their own now. We bought this property as we knew a number of people who lived here year round and felt confident in the safety and security of the island and resort.

Antiguans are very friendly and kind-hearted. We eventually plan to spend our winters here and use Jolly Harbour as our base to cruise the Caribbean.

We really enjoy the opportunity to share our little piece of paradise with you.

Elton and Jayne Ash purchased this villa in 2005

Why Elton and Jayne Ash chose Antigua

We love Antigua and the friendly laid back lifestyle. Jolly Harbour is the only resort of its kind in the Caribbean where you can moor your boat right outside your patio. We also enjoy golf and can take advantage of the 18 hole championship course along with the terrific community atmosphere.

Jolly Harbour has everything you need from a fully stocked grocery store to several restaurants and bars along with shops, banking facilities, an internet cafe and rental companies.

What makes this villa unique

The North Beach is only 2 tenths of a mile away, a 5 minute walk from our villa. It is very quiet and secluded. If you want more action the South Beach has Castaways Beach Bar along with beach vendors.

Our villa faces east so you can enjoy the morning sun with your coffee overlooking the marina from the patio, then enjoy the shade in the afternoon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just thought to write you a few lines about our stay at your villa. Please feel free to publish this review anywhere you see fit.



First, we'd like to tell you that the house was amazing. We found it very comfortable, well arranged and in a very secure area. We were very impressed with the balcony/patio setup right on the water. Sunrises were beautiful in the morning. I also would like to add that I found the shower outside the main door very practical and useful. Also, the house was very well furnished with all the amenities required, making it feel like home even more.



In general, we loved the island. The beaches were stunning and it wasn’t hard to navigate around. Although some of the places on the island were closed due to the slow season we got to spend more time at the beach, which we love. We found the locals to be helpful and very friendly. The Jolly Harbour complex seemed to be a prime location on the island and it was very nice staying there, we enjoyed all the bars and restaurants inside the complex.



Personally, both Enisa and I would like to thank you for all your help and advice on what to do. Your care and attention to detail for the people who stay at your home made our trip even more special.



Thanks,
Aug 2014

A great time at the Villas

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in July 2016 During Carnival. I had an amazing time. Most of the time wasn't spent in the villa. While there though it was nice, you'll need a car or golf cart to get around though. The villa it self is nice and roomy. The patio was the best feature. There's a grocery store on the premises, quite a few restaurants. Two beaches although I only went to the south beach most of the time which was amazing. Then there's a nice restaurant on the beach. You will not be disappointed with this villa. Just know if you plan on adventuring out, you will need a car. If you just want nice beach fun. This is the place to be. Thanks to Elton and Ash for emails back and forth and continuous updates as time neared.

A perfect week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in this villa for a week in October.

Elton made the booking process very easy and was always at hand to answer any queries we had. The information provided by Elton really helped us to plan the rest of our holiday.

The villa is in a great location, there is a parking space opposite the property if you hire a car and the veranda has a wonderful view to enjoy whilst you sit out for breakfast or for a beer in the evening. The accommodation was perfect, it was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped to enable you to cook if you want a night off eating out.

North beach is in walking distance from the property and we had this beach to ourselves. South beach is more popular, although not crowded, and we drive to this beach from the villa. The supermarket on site is really handy and has everything you may need.

We would highly recommend hiring a car to enable you to get around the complex as well as exploring the island. We felt this was a great place to visit and had something to suit everyone; wonderful beaches but also lots of other great activities across the island.

I would highly recommend Antigua and this villa for the perfect getaway.

Wonderful vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed at the Ash's unit in Jolly Harbour in September 2015. I cannot recommend this condo enough. It was well equipped with everything required to enjoy our holiday.

Leading up to the trip Elton was very quick in responding to any inquiry we had.

The North Finger of Jolly Harbour is much quieter than the South, it's a fantastic location to just relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

We can't wait for our return to Jolly, and we will definitely stay at this property in the future.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week in July. It was clean and was equipped with everything we needed, including beach towels and a fully stocked kitchen. We rented a golf cart, which made going to the grocery store, beach and restaurants much easier. We liked South Beach, but preferred the quiet of North Beach - we went everyday and except for the last day, we had the beach entirely to ourselves. There was always a very good breeze and we only needed to use the bedroom air conditioner to sleep at night and it worked well to cool down the room. Jolly Harbour has everything you need and there were always taxis available as well as a city bus stop. We took the bus into St. John's and it was easy and quick. We booked tours of the island by car and boat and both left from Jolly Harbour, the boat picked us up on the South Beach. Booking this villa was very easy and the owner was very quick with his responses to any inquiries or questions we had. He provided all the information we needed (and helpful tips) in his emails. We would not hesitate to book this villa again or recommend it to our friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. As you mentioned our vacation home is situated so that the prevailing breeze blows through nicely keeping it comfortable much of the time. The beaches are quiet and private. We look forward to a return visit.

Easy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in June and it was as clean and comfortable as it could be. There is a TV, fully stocked kitchen, grill, towels and just about anything you'd need. The restaurants in Jolly Harbour are expensive, but we just zipped down to the Epicurean Grocery store each morning and ate almost every meal in. You'll need at least a golf cart to get around the property. The North Beach is not far, but also not that impressive if you're looking to lounge around. The South Beach, which is where you can get beach chairs/umbrellas etc is a good 10 mins away by golf cart. The bar there, Castaways, is a good place to go if you want a break from the sun. We'd go there and have cocktails and read our books in the late afternoon every day, then go for a dip.

The owner was really helpful and sent us a lot of information before the trip and everything went smoothly for arrival and departure. No complaints.

Owner's Response: The Epicurean grocery store is well stocked, but you do need to be aware that by Sunday the shelves get low on supplies until Wednesday when the next shipment has arrived and is stocked. Castaways beach bar is a great place for sundowners at the end of the day.

Great week in Jolly Harbour

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our second week in Antigua (only because it wasn't available for the first week). It's very spacious and clean. The AC worked well and quickly cooled the bedroom for a good sleep. There's a great BBQ to make cooking dinner simple. It's in a good location, with a short walk to North beach within the complex, and a quick drive to the Jolly Harbour centre with shops and amenities. There are all sorts of beaches nearby too. Making the booking with owner was easy. Very handy for us that he's Canadian. He's very helpful and will give you all sorts of tips. No complaints. We would not hesitate to book it again when we go back to Antigua.
