Within Jolly Harbour there is a large supermarket with local, regional and international food brands, a commercial centre with restaurants, banks, ATMs/cash points, a pharmacy, a hairdresser/beauty salon, souvenir shops, car hire, golf cart hire, launderette, office facilities, real estate agents, boat companies, tour operators, sports facilities including a large pool, tennis courts, a squash court, a gym and a golf-course. Most facilities in Jolly Harbour are within walking distance -you might want to consider hiring a golf cart to get around quicker, and they're a lot of fun too!
The airport is 30 minutes away, St John's (the capital city) is 25 minutes away, English Harbour is 40 minutes away, by car or taxi.
Nicely appointed and very clean, this condo is just a 5 minute walk to the beach and Castaways bar/restaurant and 15-20 minute walk to restaurants, shops and the grocery store in Jolly Harbour. Milton had the condo ready for us, and even stocked some things in the fridge. We dove with Indigo Divers.
Traveling with 8 month old twins to Antigua you could imagine the questions and the prep work that was needed. Milton and Joy provided feedback and services beyond our expectations. From arranging a playpen to drives (with car seats) to offering to pick us up pizza from a pizzeria on the other side of the resort Milton and Joy were outstanding. The villa was modern, clean and comfortable and stocked with provision such as bacon, eggs, bread and booze on our arrival. The splash pool was great for a dip and a Wadadli in the afternoon when the twins were napping. The beach is something to see and not to be described in words. The nearby pool was a blessing, quiet, clean and warm. The grocery store was well stocked but be prepared for the cost of some things. East Caribbean Dollars did us just fine in lieu or American Dollars. Restaurants in the Marina were tasty but pricey, however you can always find daily deals! The tranquility of the resort after 5pm is something we really enjoyed. Sitting on the deck listening to the waves was very relaxing.
The Villa and grounds was great however I want this review to reflect more so the service provided by Milton and Joy. It was 5 star only because I can't click more. Thank you both (even though this review is VERY late) for a wonderful vacation.
This was our first time visiting Antigua and couldn't ask for a better place to stay it was amazing and hosts were brilliant.milton was there when we arrival couldn't ask for a better person he was great and very helpful. Would definitely stay here again..
We have visited Antigua before but this was the first time we took our four year old daughter so we needed to tick a lot of boxes.......space, flexibility, the beach, a pool and nearby restaurants and supermarket!!!! It took a lot of searching as we were after a contemporary villa that didn't,t cost the earth but finally we settled on 250C jolly harbour.
After a very simple booking process (Thank you Joy) we were extremely pleased with our choice. Milton met us at the villa and had stocked the fridge with some food and drink essentials which was great. The location and views were amazing...the beach is literally 1 minute away. The supermarket, restaurants and swimming pool are 5 mins walk away. And for those lazy days, the plunge pool is a lovely bonus. Milton left us a phone to use and was on hand if we needed anything at all.
One night some of friends who live in Antigua came round and commented that it was the best villa in Jolly that they had been in!!!
Having just returned from our 4th visit to this lovely paradise island, my wife and I, along with our dear friends from the UK, were thrilled with our decision to rent a villa rather than stay at one of the many beautiful resorts. We were greeted by the warm smile of the Milton. The place was immaculate and the refrigerator was prepared with basic food provisions for our stay. My wife is a gourmet cook and was delighted that the kitchen was fully setup with everything needed for her lavish culinary creations. As for me, I smiled when I saw the blender.
On the dining table was a thorough binder packed with relevant information about the villa and Jolly Harbour. Milton was very accessible whenever we needed a question answered. We were able to conveniently park our 4-door Jeep Wrangler right at the front door. The plunge pool was a great thing to have after a day at the beach.
This villa is perfectly situated for beach lovers. It is a 2 minute walk to the turquoise waters of Jolly Harbour beach. Everything is within walking distance; grocery store, shops, restaurants, and Castaways Beach Bar!
If you want to spoil yourself, you won't regret staying here.

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Joy and Milton's villa in Antigua. Prior to our visit any concerns we had were immediately dealt with by Joy. Plenty of nice touches in the villa on our arrival - a well stocked fridge and mobile phone were particularly useful. The villa is in a great location and you can even see the beach! Jolly Harbour must be one of the best places in Antigua. Everybody is so friendly and helpful. We particularly liked Sandra's beach bar which had excellent food and drinks. Think about this - it is February, the sun is shining, the temperature is 29 degrees, the sea is 30 shades of blue, the sun beds are so comfortable, the rum has just been poured into the fresh coconut and at the end of a long day on the beach it is a 2 minute walk back to the villa where you can relax on the dock with your own rum cocktails - what's not too like!!! The restaurants in Jolly Harbour are first rate and there are excellent musical groups to complete the evening's entertainment. So, back to the villa for some well earned rest in order to tackle the next day! We cannot recommend this villa and place more highly for a fantastic holiday.
Spread over 350 acres on the beautiful west coast of Antigua, Jolly Harbour is the ideal destination for your Caribbean vacation.

The map link at this page shows a general location for Jolly Harbour, and not the exact location of Peppermint Villa which is at 250C in the South Finger in Jolly Harbour. It is a central and convenient location, close to the beach, pool and all amenities in Jolly Harbour - we can send you a more detailed map if you would like a clearer indication of where the villa is.
