About Phil Holland

We currently live in the UK, having spent a career mostly working and living overseas. We bought this property in 2008 to provide a vacation home for ourselves and our two daughters, and to provide an extended vacation home during my retirement.

Phil Holland purchased this villa in 2008

Why Phil Holland chose St. Mary

The property comprises 1600 square feet internally, a 300 square foot sun verandha overlooking the 10 times 5 metre pool, which is contained within a timber deck area.

With 1600 square feet of internal living area, the property is ideal for extended vacations. It is configured to enable two families of four to share identical bedrooms, ie, with two master bedrooms, both with kingsize beds, ensuites, and wardrobes, dressers. Similarly there are two identical twin rooms, which share a shower room. It is therefore ideal for two families of four to share a vacation.

The property is fully equipped to facilitate self catering, with Denby crockery, Diners cutlery, and Circulon pans. It has all the necessary facilities, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, plus other kitchen items such as blender, coffee maker, and more than adequate kitchen utensils to make self catering a pleasure, rather than a chore!

Of course, if self catering is not your thing, then you are a five minute walk from the 6 nearest restaurants.

The lounge is furnished to be comfortable, with a leather sofa set.

What makes this villa unique

The property is located on a short concrete surfaced road, off the main road entrance to Jolly Harbour and overlooks a freshwater lake, with breeding birds, and feeding pelicans. It is quiet, and removed from the hustle and bustle of Jolly Harbour, but is only a 5 minute walk away from the Jolly Harbour supermarket, restaurants etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for making your home available to us and for providing such a well stocked residence. We made extensive use of the books and puzzles along with the ample towels and kitchen goods. The welcome basket was very thoughtful and lovingly arranged. The airport transfer service was invaluable and such a beneficial and exceptional level of service to offer.

Very enjoyable family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 nights at Milk and Honey the week before Easter. We found the agents really helpful. Pascale arranged for us to arrive in 2 groups which enabled me to stock the fridge before the rest of the family arrived from the airport and she arranged an additional fold down bed that was already made up when we got there. Bancroft was very helpful in topping up the pool for us, showing us how the showers in the ensuites worked.... and changing a couple of light bulbs. The cleaners came twice and did a really thorough job. The villa was great for the 3 grandchildren as they could keep cool inside in the real heat of the day and the pool was just the right depth for the nearly 4 year old to play in safely. We used the barbecue and sat out on the patio most evenings using citronella candles and mosquito coils and had very little trouble with bites. We found we did need a car to go to the beach with the small children as the walk there and back was a bit much for them in the heat. There were loads of towels and the washing machine was really easy to use for the beach towels. We made a lot of use of the washing lines on the patio and things dried really quickly. The wifi was great and enabled us to keep in touch with Pascale via email. She always answered very quickly. The only things we couldn't find anywhere were an oven glove and any tea towels......! and other villas we have rented have provided a local mobile phone for making and receiving calls from the agents and booking taxis and restaurants etc. With the wifi we managed OK. Overall a really good experience and would recommend.

Owner's Response: Frances, Many thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback on your stay, it is always very useful and gives potential future guests an honest perspective. I will be there myself next month so will get new oven gloves and tea towels sorted. Over the past few years I have provided three mobile phones pre-set up with useful local numbers for the use of guests, but each one went "walkabouts", so I have stopped providing one. Phil

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 days in Milk and Honey, it is a fantastic property with a lovely view and easy access to local amenities. There is a supermarket and plenty of restaurants/bars as well as a golf course and the harbour with access to fishing boats and pleasure trips within easy walking distance.

The villa is very well equipped and clean with good sized bedrooms and plenty of room for the 6 of us not to get under each other's feet.

I would highly recommend it to anybody looking for self catering accommodation in Antigua.

Quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a very quiet location, down a small dust track. Positioned just 10 minute walk from the nearest beach, bars and restaurants. Bring a torch with you! It's a necessatity at night. The villa provides a great big one, but I took a small one that could slip in to a hand bag. The track at the village end, is in complete darkness, and full of pot holes, not for people with walking issues. There are street lights most of the ways down to the villa, which seem to work on sensors.

There were just 4 of us staying and the villa had everything required.

We were a little disappointed with Jolly Harbour itself. Althpugh we came for a quiet break, we did expect there to be more nightlife. Considering we stayed height of season, we never found a bar or restaurant really busy, or lots of people in one place?

Everything here is extremely laid back and chilled. Not the type of place to dress up to go out. Everyone is casual, shorts, t.shirts.

The villa provided a relaxing holiday base. We used the BBQ several times, and enjoyed lazy evenings around the pool.

Beware!! The villa is opposite the lake, and whilst we thoroughly enjoyed watching all the local wildlife pass through, mongoose, cows, cats, pelicans, the insects are EVERYWHERE!! Apparently the sand flies are the worst offenders for biting, so really, you can't escape them!!

Two of our party ended their holiday with 200+ insect bites, despite every available product from the pharmacy and shop to spray for prevention.

The villa management team worked well, and answered any queries we had, and responded promptly to minor issues we had. Very friendly, courteous people.

Although it is not necessary for a car, pre book in advance a golf buggy. $20 per day. They're like gold dust here, and we were fortunate enough to get one on our second day. It makes life that much easier, especially the supermarket run, and they're great fun to drive.

Also, hire a car for a few days, and get to see the island. There's some beautiful beaches just a few minutes drive away.

Excursions : we did the Wadadli Cat exciursion, which was a full day trip. Not for the faint hearted. A great day out, but highly dangerous if you sit at the front when the boat goes in to the Atlantic. Great value for money and certainly never laughed so much.

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable time. The villa, whilst not the most modern, certainly had everything you would need for a family holiday, would recommend to a large party for holidaying

Owner's Response: Thanks for providing such a comprehensive feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay so much and found the Villa suited your needs. Sorry to hear about the folks who suffered from the bites. I have noted your point about the torch, and will get a couple of smaller ones, just to make it more convenient. Phil

Family holiday over New Year

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spacious well appointed villa. We were a family group of 8 adults and found there was plenty of space, seating, kitchen equipment and outdoor furniture. Good sized swimming pool. Reasonably close, approx 10 minutes walk, to large supermarket, restaurants and a further 5 minutes walk on to the beautiful beach, ideal for swimming, sunbathing and partying at the local bar, Castaways. The management team were easy to get in touch with, approachable and charming. Would highly recommend this villa.

The owner was most helpful in answering various questions before we started the holiday. We rented cars for 4 days from Sunny Rentals who delivered them to the villa and were very efficient.

Great location, large comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday here over Christmas. Well equipped spacious villa, very comfortable beds, delightful outside sitting area. Lots of clean linen and mid week cleaning. Two beaches about 10 minutes walk and excellent supermarket about 5 minutes walk. Just outside jolly harbour marina and very peaceful location. The pool is only waist height but lovely to cool off. Highly recommended

Owner's Response: Great to hear you enjoyed your stay, and for the feedback on a couple of the kitchen items that didn't work. They are being sorted, and there will be a new set of kitchen knives there when I go out for a visit in a couple of weeks time.

Fantastic stay at milk and honey!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at this villa, came with my mother, friend and partner. The booking process was easy and owner Phil responded quickly and was extremely helpful. We were met at the airport and transfered to the villa, where we were shown around and given advise and useful information from the property manager. The villa itself is just as shown in the photo's , very spacious, clean with all amenities u would need. Supermarket and restaurants are literally 5 minutes away which was great and the beaches 10 minutes, would recommend castaways restaurant by jolly beach, or for a fine dining option definitely Carmichaels , which is at the sugar ridge resort, it sits on top of the hill and the view is wonderful!! particularly liked valley church beach and dickenson bay beach which has great beach bars n good music! Would advise renting a car which we did to get around the island , also recommend a trip to english harbour for the seafood Friday and Shirley heights for great band and wonderful sunset!! Pool at the villa, although quite shallow was still great for late afternoon cool down with a glass of wine!! ( or rum punch :) )

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it and hope to return ourselves in the near future... thanks again Phil for your wonderful property!! X
