An amazing and peaceful villa. I stayed during low season and it was so refreshing! Great cleaning staff and the management answered my every question. Can't wait to come back
fine for a rental
great view, will be back
Best location in Jolly Harbour!
This pleasant villa is close to the entrance to Jolly Harbour Bay and is a great place to watch boats of all kinds sail and motor past. So if you are a boat enthusiast, this is the place for you! The condo itself is near the end of a "finger" and is therefore quiet and peaceful. The patio receives sun at various points in the day; however, it can be well shaded with an electric awning. The breezes provide cool comfort; we only used the AC twice (and then briefly) in the month we stayed. Most of the JH community is walkable; however, we recommend reserving one of the golf carts for the convenience of transferring groceries as well as touring the far side of the bay. (These carts, however, cannot be driven outside the complex.) The beach is an easy walk; it is a lovely stretch of sand with usually calm waters - nice for kids and seniors. There are several water tours which depart from the beach and bay - lots of fun. The pool is large with a shallow end - great for children. The JH community is safe with ample security. The grocery store is large and very well stocked. A small shopping mall with several restaurants, a pharmacy, and ATMs add to the convenience. (El Porto has great 2 for 1 pizza on Tuesday nights!) The condo itself has a very comfortable King bed in the master bedroom, as well as a double and single in the second bedroom. A new wash machine is in the unit (hang to dry in the breeze). The place is cleaned weekly. The owner communicates well and responds promptly online. Arrangements can be made so you are met at the airport by a taxi (40.00 USD). Upon arrival in JH, a local representative greets you at the unit, and the company takes good care of any problems that might arise. Overall, we are delighted with our whole Jolly Harbour and Antigua experience and we definitely plan to return for another holiday.
Pelican Ridge, Jolly Harbour - Antigua.
For our vacation to Antigua in September 2014, We wanted to stay in a villa instead of the usual hotel. We did our search and came across Pelican Ridge, Jolly Harbour and quite like what was on offer and decided to make our reservation and it was Absolutely the best decision it definitely lived up to our expectation. The Villa is extremely comfortable, very clean, and spacious.
The location is tranquil and safe. Relaxing on the patio morning and evening was like having a piece of Heaven. Perfect for alfresco eating or just relaxing and enjoying the view. It doesn’t get much better.
The management team were really great, they had a welcome pack to greet us on our arrival which was greatly appreciated. If we had any question they were on hand to answer.
Pelican Ridge is close to beach, and the capital St. Johns is about 20 minutes away. There is a regular bus service from just outside the compound into St. John’s town centre costing EC$ 3.20 one way.
The supermarket Epicurean is only a short distance from the villa, and it has a good choice of foods & drinks.
I definitely recommend Pelican Ridge, It’s a wonderfull vacation spot.
Fabulous Villa in an Ideal Position
The villa is ideally located with views over the Indian Hills and harbour entrance and would suit people who enjoy watching the world go by. Breakfast was usually taken on the patio watching the sail boats, power boats, day trips boats heading out in the morning sun and the odd pelican dropping in over the boat moorings.
The villa is located at the end of the last South Finger, with 10minute walk to the gorgeous beech and Castaways Bar, both of which have an odd busy day when the cruise ship trips/mini buses drop off for a couple of hours or so.
In the evenings it's a very pleasant 20minute walk to the Crows Nest Bar and marina restaurant's, we tried Merlini's on a four nights during our stay and found the food and service by Adrian and his staff to be excellent.
We would definitely return to the La Petite Paix Villa and Jolly Harbour again.
Pelican Plunge Stay
The villa has one of the best locations on the south finger of Jolly Harbour. The property is continuing to be upgraded and although we had a few minor issues during our stay these were promptly dealt with by the villa management company.
We had a very enjoyable time at Pelican Plunge and spent many hours on the terrace watching the boats passing the villa.
Jolly Harbour is a fantastic Marina in the South West of Antigua - a unique development in the Caribbean. The island boasts of 365 beaches - a different one for each day. There may be less, but to discover them all and to enjoy in their diversity, takes many days, despite the relatively short distances on the island. In addition to the year-round warm and pleasant climate, and colorful, easy lifestyle of the Caribbean, it is of course the stunning coastal landscapes that make up the special charm of the island, which has long been attracting an international audience for holiday or permanent living. Although many interesting places on the island are easily accessible by public minibus, a rental car for some day trips is recommended. In no case should you miss, English Harbour (annual top event: Antigua Sailing Week), and Nelson's Dock Yard and watch the spectacular panoramic views from Shirley Heights - best during one of the most popular free Sunday afternoon concerts, an unforgettable experience! For many recreation-seeking holiday makers, however the options provided in the Marina of Jolly Harbour itself are fully sufficient: a beautiful spacious bay with gentle sloping fine shell sand, all kinds of water sports including yacht charter, a sports center with swimming pool and tennis courts, an 18-hole golf course with gym in the clubhouse and not least the attractive family-friendly holiday homes at the Marina. You reach there in half an hour by by taxi from the airport. Thereafter at the apartment a car is no longer needed- apart from any excursions. A golf cart may be useful, it can be arranged if required.
