About Marc Garvey
We have been Caribbean lovers since we first took our children there in the early ‘80’s instead of Disneyland. Neither of our children or we have never made it to Disneyland, but we’ve visited just about every island in the beautiful Caribbean. We have been looking the last few years and had narrowed it down to Antigua and one other island. Antigua won hands down! It was the fabulous beaches, the overly friendly Antiguans, the spectacular views, the security of one of the lowest crime rates, the value of the restaurants and handmade purchases, the cleanliness of the island and homely feel of the little towns and villages, the golf courses and the endless activities available…you know where we’re going, we found paradise! A ton of research ensued and endless search for the dream villa ended in Sugar Ridge. Our second trip with in six months we had knew we found home at Villa Sunset and you will too. Certainly the best and most spectacular views of any villa we inspected!
Marc Garvey purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Marc Garvey chose Jolly Harbour
One of the best points of it all is location, location, and location. Jolly Harbor has it all and it’s at the bottom of the hill. We have stayed in different areas of the island and by far Jolly Harbor takes the cake. Beaches, restaurants, endless water sports, grocery and liquor stores, banks, rental cars, cafes, and nightlife are only a minute away.
What makes this Villa unique
Sugar Ridge is a luxury boutique hotel at our beck and call, which was a big selling point for us. You wouldn’t know it’s right next to the villa, but the use of the fitness center, excellent restaurants and facilities are just about a 5-minute walk or 2-minute drive away make for convenience and ease during your vacation. Security 24 hours, paved roads and the elegance of it all, especially our Antiguan friends, makes you feel like you’re someone special.

Sunset villa was a really great find for our family holiday .
It was our first visit to Antigua so I spent hours on the web trying to find the right place to stay. I’m so pleased we stayed at this villa. The villa has lovely furnishings and the kitchen has everything you would need to enjoy your stay. Very nice to come back in the evening and have a drink by the pool. Plenty of sun loungers to relax by the pool and great little chairs to take to the beach. My son enjoyed making use of the gym at sugar ridge resort and my daughter enjoyed the cocktails at the poolside bar. The property manager met us at the villa on the day of our arrival she was a lovely young lady and answered all our questions, not that we had that many. The transfer from the airport went smoothly also we hired a car from the company that had been suggested in our emails from the property manager. The car was delivered to the villa and picked upon our departure day. Such an easy process. The supermarket is very close only a few minutes in the car it’s very well stocked. Some lovely restaurants in the area. The beaches nearby are wonderful.
As a family we have been renting homes for our vacations for the last six years and this is the first time I have written a review. I am very picky about where we stay and I would definitely come back to sunset villa. Like everyone else said it has everything you need for a great vacation. Hope to be back one day.
Better than perfect!
We are a group of three couples that stayed at Villa Sunset for 9 days. All of us have stayed in several vacation rentals, and it was an easy consensus that Villa Sunset is the most fabulous place we’ve ever stayed. The pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed - we’re a group that will venture out during the day, and cook in for breakfast and dinner. Pool, sunsets, morning views, layout of the villa with three masters - all added up to a better than perfect experience. We never lacked for anything, and the response from owners and management was immediate when we contacted them. The attention to detail on everything in the villa was superb, housekeeping was great, we just cannot say enough about this special place. Our group, who rarely will revisit a spot (there’s so many places to see!!) is in agreement that we definitely want to return to Villa Sunset - for longer next time! Thanks so much for providing us with the better than perfect vacation.
Sunsets and Sunshine
We absolutely loved staying at Villa Sunset. The villa was all we had hoped it would be and so much more. And while it’s been said before, the pictures you see when viewing the property is what you see when you enter the home. The views are breathtaking and we would try to make it a point to get back to the villa in time to enjoy the sunsets with a glass of wine. Our girls loved the infinity pool in the morning before heading to the beach and when we’d get back in the evening. Renting a car was convenient but be sure to give yourself a day or two to get accustomed to driving on the island. Using your own Google Maps vs. the rental car GPS is recommended.
We visited Devil’s Bridge which was provided some beautiful pictures, I only wished we brought a few eggs along, lol. Our favorite beach to spend our days was Darkwood. We found the hospitality there more pleasant than Valley Church and the Beach Bar and Grill service to be substantially quicker.
Horseback riding wat SpringHill Equestrian was a great experience especially since we hadn’t been swimming with our horses in the past.
Our days were filled with beautiful sunshine, perfect temperatures and late night tropical showers. Who could ask for more?
We loved Antigua and loved our stay at Villa Sunset. We’d also like to thank the Garvey’s for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home and we hope to be back!

Thank you!!! We always stay in touch with our guests many times before they arrive and after too with the pure intentions of communications, so their stay is the best and we can learn what their needs are. We take renting our special place seriously and have a ton of fun doing it. When going on vacation we encourage all of our guests to ask us about anything and love sharing our thoughts and stories. Love it when guests love it, its that simple.
Thanks so much and you and your fam are welcome back anytime.
Far Exceeded Expectations
Sunset Villa was so much better than I expected, and I have really, really high expectations when I travel! Of course, the views, as you can see from the photos, are amazing, and the sunsets didn't disappoint. If you're wishing for aquamarine water and quiet, long stretches of beach, Antigua is an ideal destination. What I was surprised by, however, was the place itself. The bedrooms are far more beautiful in person, and the pictures really don't do them justice. In addition to being surprised by that, I was impressed with: the kitchen (it's better stocked than any airbnb, villa, hotel, etc that I have EVER stayed in), the indoor gathering area (it's larger and more accommodating than the photos convey), the backyard (yes, there's a beautiful, lush yard with a seating area in the back), the bathrooms (they're beautiful and plentiful), the proximity to the gym (it's top-notch and literally down the street), the supply of beach equipment (towels, chairs, coolers, etc), and, perhaps most importantly, the kindness, support, and quick-responsiveness of the on-island contacts (they were amazing and at our service). My single, only recommendation is to rent a car, for there are so many beaches to see and you don't want to be held down to a taxi!
Thank you so much! So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Sunset. Fabulous!
What a great place to visit !!!! Villa was superb and owners were great to work with. Will definitely return. Good restaurants very nearby all with great food and friendly people staffing them. Lots of nice beaches to visit and enjoy the warm waters.
Still the best!
This was our second time staying at the Garvey's place and it was even better than last time! We could have never left the place and stared at the view all day, every day, it's just that beautiful. Antigua is now our favorite place to visit and it's largely because of this place. It's in the perfect location that gives you a great store right near by, the best beaches to visit on the island are near here, as well as the best restaurants. We hope to return as soon as possible!
TY Charles! We love to have guests return to Sunset as we always try to improve their experience. TY again, Marc
You may never want to leave Villa Sunset but perhaps you venture out to explore what the island has to offer, Jolly Harbour is right across the street. The bustling Jolly Harbour Marina can take you on various boating excursions, scuba diving, snorkeling and sport fishing trips. There are beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants, and bars. The Marina complex even offers an 18-hole golf course, tennis and squash courts.
In Jolly Harbour is where you will find many fabulous restaurants, grocery shopping, pharmacy, banking, ice cream and coffee shops. Further down the road about 5-8 minutes you will find Darkwood beach, Turners beach, Valley Church beach, and Coco bay.
The capital of Antigua, St. John, is only a 10-minute drive away where you will find local markets of delicious food, restaurants and lots of shopping.
The airport is approximately a 20-minute drive from the villa.
You may want to explore the heritage of Antigua at Nelson Dockyard and stunning views from the local gathering at Shirley Heights on Sundays, furthermore, enjoy the excitement of Carnival, Cricket and Sailing week.
We love sailing and scuba diving. Morning walks on the beach searching for beach glass then stopping in some of the charming beach huts for a late lunch or early dinners, like at Jackie O’s. Exploring the island and ending up at Shirley Heights. Buying fresh fish or lobster at the marina 10 minutes down the road. Dark Wood beach, snorkeling the reefs right off the coastline or Turners beach and Jolly beach only minutes away. A special dinner at Sheer Rock, you’ll never forget. And not to mention cocktails at the local beach bars, all minutes from Sunset. Hang with the locals at weekly fish fries, or head to St. Johns for local markets abundant with fresh fruits and veggies. Feel like exploring, hop in your car and try dining at Blue Water, Le Bistro or Cecelia’s. Be casual at Cloggy’s or the Mad Mongoose after the beach or island trek. Or head back at Villa Sunset with a glass of wine with stunning panoramic views. These are some of our favorites. Enjoy!
