This property was pretty good. It wouldn't take much to upgrade it to the next level but if you're looking for the basics, it's there.
Perfect for us
Jolly View: stunning villa location, perfect for us (though wouldn’t want to do the climb with young kids or grandparents !). Having normally gone to Jumby Bay (resort part not the mega villas !), we were concerned would it be too remote, too quiet, too much effort etc but it worked perfectly. Lorena was great.
The Jeep Wrangler convertible would highly recommend (very easy drop off/collection) and we got to see far more of the island than in the past.
Would highly recommend Catherine's for Saturday lunch with band, prefer the food to their sister property at Sheer Rocks Enjoyed a day at Jacqui O’s. Thought the beach where Dennis restaurant is located is magnificent however the food at Dennis was dreadful. Also the Italian in the harbour has apparently had a lot of staff changes so not as good as it was
Hello Noreen and Aine
We are back from our holiday at Jolly Villa Antigua! Wow! It truly was wonderful. On the first day I was continually stating how exotic and unique and beautiful it was.... if you were a mountain goat! LOL! But I got used to the hills on the property and we had the best golf cart, we renamed the golf goat, with tires with incredible threads that would rival any Canadian snow tires.
I think, however you should update the Villa on your website because there were some pleasant surprises: each bedroom had television/satellite, there was a gas stove and oven, a toaster oven, a microwave and every other handy kitchen appliance one would need. They had in fact installed the safes, but they were unable to get the mechanism to lock/unlock. The owner was on hand and someone was supposed to come to set them up but never did. That was OK because in the end we felt very safe, because I’m sure no one was brave enough to attempt a paths on the Villa grounds. Lol.
Loreena, The property manager was always available and very pleasant. She even stopped at the pineapple farm to bring us fresh pineapples.
Thank you for all of your assistance in answering all of my questions prior to our departure to Antigua.
We had a wonderful time in paradise ! From the time we started to communicate with you to the time we left the island we couldn’t have asked for anything more. You were very responsive even though you were traveling back to Ireland and we were traveling through Maine in the US.
Our planning was last minute but you didn’t make us feel as though we were imposing on you or that we were anything other than your first priority. Thank you for that.
The service was nothing less than first class, and the accommodations were literally Paradise ! Katia met us at the airport as planned, we rented our car and followed her to the Jolly View. Approaching through the Jolly Harbor neighborhood and the climb to the gate builds the anticipation and the surprise of being in front of this spectacular spot and not realizing it until you go through the gate was wonderful. Peter has done an amazing job of improving on an already stunning site. Everything about the Jolly View invites the guest to be part of and enjoy the island experience. The location at the tip of Reed’s Point can’t be matched.
The cottages are designed to pull you outside and enjoy the climate and the view. I’m one that really dislikes air conditioning and the fact that it can be 90f during the day and 78f at night and never think we needed it, because of the way the cottage was situated on the point in the breeze and the louvered walls of the cottage was very nice. The way the cottage made us feel as though we could either be quiet and laid back as we read books or comfortable playing in the pool was really special. It was both private enough to be comfortable and exposed enough to be fun. The construction and architecture was quality and extremely functional. The elegance is effortless and your staff was only there when we needed something and that is important to maintaining the relaxation you obviously designed the cottages to encourage.
I’m having trouble finding the words to adequately describe how wonderful this island paradise truly is, other than to say we never have the feeling that we want to come back to a vacation location and I immediately felt I wanted to come back to Peter’s place ! And we will.
Thank you for an unexpected, exceptionally organized and superbly designed vacation paradise.
(All of the labels like Villa, Resort, Cottage, Vacation Rental etc. don’t do it justice… Paradise fits it perfectly ! )
