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 St. Mary

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.

Perfect Villa on a Perfect Island!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Our family of four (two teenage daughters) have been fortunate to travel to the Caribbean approximately 15 times and stay in multiple VRBO properties. Villa Sunset is by far the best property we have stayed. Have to make special note in regards to the design of this home and functionality. Given the design/layout and multiple sitting areas in and around the Villa, it is ideal for family or several couples to be together yet have their own space/privacy when needed. We can only reiterate what others have stated in regards to optimal location, ridiculously beautiful views, Villa amenities, and the pleasure of working with the homeowner. A special note in regards to their flexibility and timely communication in working with us for arrival and departure dates. The owners have left nothing to chance down to quality beach chairs, cooler (which we used for the fishing trip....we caught 2 Wahoo and a Barracuda!!), beach bags, high end beach towels and the old fashioned clothes line for wet swimsuits. By the way, we used the Weber to grill those Wahoo for a few dinners. Awesome!!

Highlights: The Villa! Proximity to very nice grocery store, Epicurean. Jacqui O's ( out) Great beach though. Deep sea fishing out of English Harbor. Valley Church Beach. Miracles Restaurant. Shells Fish and Chips. (My wife travels to London extensively and stated Shells was the best F & C she has ever tasted. I agree!)

All in all, a great home, great location and we would return in a heartbeat!

Superb- Third Time is a charm

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Villa Sunset and we had such a nice time. The villa is so well equipped, so relaxing and on a great part of the island. We have enjoyed each visit and this one was definitely the best. . the owners are awesome and have strived to provide a home away from home type stay for all of their guests. The home is in a very convenient location and the views are so amazing. There is a grocery store right around the corner, and some great restaurants too.

Our faves included the seclusion of the beach Hermitage Bay and the food and service at Jacqui O's. Don't miss at Sunset dinner at Carmichael's.

Choose Villa Sunset for your next Antiguan vacation and you won't be disappointed.

Best views on the island!

  • 5 of 5

How much we loved every moment at Villa Sunset! Every morning we enjoyed coffee outside while being greeted by the local birds, lizards and endless and ever changing shades of turquoise as the sun rose on what we felt was our own personal bay of blue. This place has the absolute best views on the island! Every day happy hour begins at your own infinity pool, while you use your own grill for dinner while watching the best sunset view anywhere. Each suite is equally big and comfortable with only the view from your bed being different, either the harbor or the mountains. This place has everything you need from robes in every room, abundance of beach towels, a full kitchen for those who like to cook and a large couch and TV for those relaxing nights. The Epicurean market is just a short drive away and will provide everything you need for reasonable prices as long as you buy non-USA items. There are plenty of restaurants close by that are worth trying out, Jackie O's being a must, especially if you want to spend a day at the beach. The place feels safe as your behind your own personal gate as well as a security gate to enter the resort. The lot even has a little tropical garden behind the house that provides even more privacy. Marc's communication before and throughout our trip made everything even better. We can't wait to go back, thanks Marc!

Owner's Response: Perfect and thank you, mission accomplished, again. This is my first response to any of our reviews as we feel future guests need to hear from us. It makes us feel soooo awesome when a guest experiences the exact reason we purchased Sunset. Sharing our paradise, our home is the reason we decided to rent. I can go on forever, but we looked at hundreds of villas on 3 of our favorite islands and we picked Sunset...find out why this is where you should be. Our goal is a fantastic and memorable holiday, as you wake up in any of our suites to the best morning views of the Caribbean, but more so the unbelievable, spectacular nowhere we have been so lucky to have seen, we promise...enjoy and again thank you!

Pretty much the best!

  • 5 of 5

We stay at a lot of VRBO's and this was the best. The pictures which are so great here don't even do it justice. Biggest problem - you'll never want to leave the house! Everything is extremely well and tastefully appointed. The staff at Villa Management including Pascale and Bancroft were exceptional from our first interaction to our last.

Hope so much to be able to come back soon!

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!
