The property was perfect , good size , fully equipped and clean ! The air conditioning was greatly appreciated.
Its location is fantastic , the beach is 3 mins walk from the appartement and there’s a supermarket 5 mins walk where you will find everything you need !
The beach bar is great for sunset where the cocktails are delicious !
You will also find restaurants very near to the property !
I highly recommend this place , the staff managing the agency were amazing and very accommodating .
Thank you !
Cozy Villa in a great location!
I came to Antigua for Carnival. The villa is perfect for me and my fiancé. It’s a short walk to the beach and the supermarket. This is my first time doing a vacation rental and I was a little nervous. All my fears were alleviated.
Upon arrival an agent met me at the rental and we did a walkthrough of the property. We even received a welcome basket. We were given a number we could call 24hours a day if something were to happen. It was also nice having someone locally to assist. A group of people I was with had issues with their vacation home rented through a different website and they couldn’t get assistance until the day before they left the Island.
I will defiantly rent this villa again because it’s in the perfect location for the right price.
I stayed at Virgo apartment for 2 weeks during a recent visit to jolly harbour Antigua. The apartment was clean and equipped with essential appliances however the oven, hub and microwave did not work properly it took me hours to cook or Re heat a meal. This apartment is not adequate for 2 week visit, perhaps a weekend , for the price it would be better to stay somewhere away from a main road which is more spacious and safe. The location of apartment was walking distance from beach and shops however it’s near a road which can be busy and noisy at times. I had problems sleeping most night due to noise. Halfway through my stay I realised one of the owners I rented the apartment from was staying next door with her husband and child, they were very noisy and made no attempt to find out if I was having any problems instead they would let themselves into my apartment when I was out, nothing was missing but it made me feel unsafe and I think it is very very weird.
I visit Antigua a lot and will never stay at Virgo apartment or never recommend it to anyone.
Dear Mary Thomas,
I have to say I am not only very confused by your review, but also find it bordering on slander.
Firstly I am the ONLY owner of this apartment and I can assure you I have not ‘let myself in the apartment’ - I was not even in Antigua at the time of your stay! As I currently live in the UK. So can I respectfully ask that you get things straight before posting such lies. Secondly if I for any moment was staying somewhere and someone was letting themselves in, I would be straight to the agent looking after me or onto the owner to ask what was going on!
With regards to the cooking facilities, my apologies if you had any problems working these correctly, can I ask why didn’t you report this? Including the times you were checked on to see that all was ok? I myself also contacted you to check? If you had mentioned any of this during your stay we would have immediately helped.
The apartment is very spacious for a one bedroom apartment as has been mentioned by other guests. It is set back from a road, however this is a private gated community, with a security gate at the entrance, so although there are some vehicles and golf carts use this road, mainly during the day, I am surprised you found the road noise so bad at night to keep you awake.
Overall it really saddens me that you didn’t enjoy your time here, and didn’t give myself or my agents a chance to help whilst you were there.
It also really upsets me that you have chosen to return and write such an incorrect review. I am not sure of your intentions? I know you were upset that I wouldn’t discount your price further than I did, but you paid less than £70 a night all in, for two people on a gated community in Antigua, so I didn’t think that unreasonable.
I am sorry that you feel to post such lies but would ask that you please stop. We are a young family who privately own this apartment and it costs a lot of money to run. We rely on our bookings and other than the odd niggle have always had happy guests, in fact we have many return guests.
By giving such a Review and one star rating, you have made this much harder but I guess that was your intention for whatever reason.
2 weeks in paradise
We recently returned from 2 weeks in Jolly Harbour Antigua and enjoyed it very much. The location was convenient for accessing Jolly beach (about a 3 minute walk away), the supermarket was about a 5 minute walk, and several restaurants were nearby as well...The neighbourhood was quiet and easy to walk if you choose to not rent a car.
If you have a car there are many beautiful beaches nearby within a 10 - 15 minute drive away, most were not busy at all when we were there...
Our unit was a 1 bedroom with a well equipped kitchen and a small patio with a table and chairs outside for dining. There is a washing machine, but the clothes dryer was not working during our stay. We found that the clothes line worked quite well for drying our clothes overnight so we didn't really need a dryer after all.
There are 2 a/c units and several fans for cooling down the apartment that we found worked very well....
We would recommend bringing your own entertainment devices to use with the wifi as the T.V. had no signal while we were there and we couldn't get the radio/ c.d.player to work either....
Overall we really enjoyed our time here and wouldn't hesitate to tell our friends and family about it. We can't wait to go back for another visit or to stay for the entire winter sometime in the future.
It was awesome
Great rental property
Fabulous location in easy reach of the sea and access to eating and supermarket.
Well equipped property if you do want to self cater. Well maintained
Located on the South Finger of Jolly Harbour; a popular resort centred around a world class Marina. The apartment is in a fantastic location, just a stones throw from an idyllic, mile long, sandy beach where you can relax and take in the magnificent views of neighbouring Monsterrat. The apartment is also a short walk to the resorts amenities which include a large international supermarket, restaurants, bars, bank, pharmacy, internet cafe and various other shops. For leisure facilities there is a sports complex which includes a large pool (free for use with apartment) squash courts, tennis courts, bar and restaurant. Jolly Harbour also has its own 18 hole golf course with club facilities including a gym and pro shop. For those wishing to explore more, the apartment is located within 15 min drive to some of the Islands most spectacular beaches, 20 min to the capital St Johns, 30 min to the airport, and overall no more than 40 minutes drive to any of Antigua's many great attractions.
