About the property

2 bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen), 2 1/2 baths, sleeps 4

Soak up the sun and ocean breeze every day! Awake to soft, sunny surroundings. Enjoy breakfast on the shaded waterfront patio. Pack a picnic, visit several beaches, relax by the pool, play tennis or golf, sign up for an exotic excursion, shuffle by quaint shops, dine alfresco, watch the sun set--all in Jolly Harbour. This casual, comfortable community is essentially self-contained, including marina, grocery, restaurants and club facilities--easily accessible by foot, bicycle or golf cart. Public transport, taxi or car rental will take you to all other parts of this very interesting island. Antigua is rich in history and sailing, with everything from lush rain forest to rough ridges pounded by the mighty Atlantic to soft Caribbean sands and blue, blue water. Our villa exemplifies the lifestyle--simple yet ample. Clean, light ratan & glass furniture, well furnished kitchen, plenty of fresh new linens, 2 tv's, wi-fi ,washer & dryer, electric grill, and golf cart (optional/extra). Cool breeze and A.C. too!

There's as much to do, or as little, as you'd like. Rest, read, relax. Romp, run around, rejuvenate, rekindle, romance. Antigua boasts 365 beaches, each one very unique and worthy of a visit. The central town of St. Johns has high end shoppes as well as fresh air market and local merchants. Spectacular view and steel bands overlook historic English Harbor. Lesser known Fort James has intimate restaurant and lovely ambiance. Jeep tours into the forest, helicopter over Mont Serrat volcano, zip line through the forest, charter fishing, 'booze' cruises, snorkel, scuba, swim with stingrays, fast boats, fancy sailing yachts, healthy/herbal spas, horse riding on the beach, or a day trip to pristine Barbuda....Bet you can't do it all!!

Would Stay Again!

  • 5 of 5

We spend an incredibly relaxing stay in Antiguan Sunset April 6th – 17th. We primarily choose this villa for its location which is close to North Beach where we expected to spend most of our time and we did.

The beach was mostly deserted; we saw was 6 people on it one day.

The golf cart was offered with the villa for a reasonable fee and worked perfectly; it was easier to rent from Cindy rather than the hassle of renting one elsewhere.

You can walk to North Beach but it is a bit of a hike with beach chairs and a cooler. Going to South Beach or the grocery store would be too far for us to walk, besides its part of the adventure touring around in the golf cart.

Cindy was very accommodating answering all our questions and getting back to us right away. The whole process was easy from beginning to end.

The villa is very comfortable and well equipped. The BBQ worked GREAT!! Internet worked GREAT! The kitchen has everything you need and the cookware is very good quality. Open the patio door and the front door and feel the beautiful breeze, you don’t need AC. We did use it in the bedroom at night.

We were very happy with our choice of accommodation and we would definitely rent Antiguan Sunset again.

Amazing Vacation Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is amazing! It has everything you need for a great stay. The kitchen is stocked full of all the things you need to cook great meals and pack picnics for the beach.

The grill on the patio works perfectly, we grilled most of the trip. The patio is the perfect place for sunset cocktails and delicious dinners.

Be sure to rent the golf cart as it is a perfect way to get around the harbor! Makes it super easy to get to the store, restaurants and the beach!!! The house also has all the beach stuff you need. Chairs, plenty of towels, an umbrella and the perfect cooler.

This is the second time I have stayed in this villa and I will stay again!!! Cindy and and Andy are so helpful and friendly! They made the stay so comfortable!

The villa is the perfect place to relax and recharge. It has everything you need!!!

A Lovely Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This is indeed a lovely villa. It lives up to all its claims and more. We spent 5 weeks in Antiguan Sunset and enjoyed every minute of it. There is plenty of glassware, dishes, utensils, pots and pans, towels, and beach towels. The villa has everything we needed, an Ipod dock, Wifi, good set-up for using/charging 110v electronics. It was also beautifully furnished.

The electric grill on the deck was so much more convenient to use than a charcoal grill.

Cindy and Andy are wonderful to deal with. They are pleasant, upbeat, and so helpful. Thanks Cindy and Andy!

We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Jolly Harbour is a great place to visit. There is a grocery store, drug store, banks, great restaurants (check out Shell's double decker bus for fish and chips just outside the complex, delicious!).

The South beach is a beautiful white sand beach with lots of hustle and bustle. Try the North beach for a day of tranquiity.

We took a bottle of wine there one evening and enjoyed a few sips while witnessing a magnificent sunset. A perfect ending to another perfect day. We can't wait to return.

LOVED our Antigua stay!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was lovely - clean, maintained to a high standard, and very well equipped, it was a home away from home. Jolly Harbour is a village in itself. Everything we needed was right there. The beach was a short walk from the villa; it was very clean with white sand and blue, warm water. The grounds and the beach are beautifully kept. There is a big communal pool, tennis courts, several restaurants, and golf. There is a fully stocked supermarket, which provided everything we needed. We ate breakfast in the villa everyday and made sandwiches to eat at the beach. This unit has everything you need to prepare meals. We rented a car to explore the rest of the island and all of the amazing beaches.

Andrew and Cindy were a pleasure to rent from and made sure that everything about our trip was perfect!

It was a great island, perfect weather, friendly people, and a truly memorable trip. Antigua was one of our best vacations!

Vacation Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This villa is truly a great place to vacation. It is neat, clean and has every thing you need. The back of the villa has a magnificent view of Jolly Harbor. It is within walking distance or golf cart ride to reataurants, shopping and beaches. We have stayed here three times and plan another visit so.

Relax-This is a great vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This spotless villa will instantly relax you. The pictures are true but the real views are even better. The villa is very well maintained and local help checks in occasional to make sure alls "no problem mann". We stayed 3 weeks and only rented a car two days. Also used the local bus system a few times and easy...

Make sure you rent the golf cart as its the best way around to Jolly Harbour beaches, resturants, waterfront bars, grocery, bank, marina, drug store, and other neat shops in "town center".

We had family fly in at different times and they all loved the villa and the circumnavigation catermaran day trip-- use plenty of sun screen. There is so much todo and fun stuff on the beach, that we never even turned on the 125 channel TV until the second week (only heavy rainy afternoon we had.) We recommend this villa to all types -- Family, lovers on getaway, older retired folks.
