About Judith Josiah-Martin

This home was built by our parents as a retirement property and over the years we have entertained many friends and family who came to share the warmth and beauty of this property. For many persons, this home has been a peaceful retreat and a home away from home. Most of our family lives on the east coast of the US but occasionally we return to this island oasis for rest and relaxation.

Judith Josiah-Martin purchased this house in 2002

Why Judith Josiah-Martin chose Saint Mary

This home was built on land that has been in our family for generations. It is located on the southern part of the island which is characteristically green and lush and home to several pristine beaches. Nearby facilities offer snorkeling and shopping.

What makes this house unique

This home offers ocean views all around, the opportunity to fall asleep to the lullaby of the waves, stunning sunsets, air conditioned rooms, attentive owners and excellent service.

Fantastic Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this home to say the least! Only issue was the driveway into the property. Very rough and steep, but, once you get to the house you tend to forget about that driveway. Home is very comfortable. We enjoyed the pelicans diving for dinner most afternoons. This is truly a diamond in the rough! Yes, a car is needed here! We were a 15 min drive to Jolly Harbour for restaurants, 7 miles. Price paid for this one was on the low side. It is well worth more for sure!! Thanks so much to Tracy who met us at the airport and Lenard, the property manager, was available anytime and was very friendly and helpful.

This home, due to it's location, would be perfect for guests that stay home at night and make their dinner in. I did not care for the night time driving.

The little beach that is there is too rough to go swimming, but, has treasures to find on it. Like sea glass and shells.

All of the other reviews have said it all. Nothing negative to report here, just a great home to rent and enjoy!!!!

Thank You to Judith for allowing us to stay here!

Sweet Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying three nights at Olivette. It was lovely! Very well kept! It is very secluded with an amazing view! It has a well-furnished kitchen and the caretakers even had fresh fruit awaiting us. They arranged a car to be delivered to the house as well. The home is very comfortable and lovely. Nice two bedroom two baths. Air conditioning worked well and great wifi! A car is a must as nothing is within walking distance here. But we navigated the potholes pretty well and enjoyed our stay! Thank you to everyone who helped make our stay amazing!

Brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for all of February 2017.

We had a wonderful time but previous reviews have said it all and we can only add our endorsement to those views.

However we would like to express our thanks to Lenard in particular for his friendship and helpfulness.

We couldn't believe how beautiful this property was. The location is absolutley wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Olivette in Old Road Village. From the start of our holiday it was an amazing experience. From being met at the airport by Brittany who took us to the local supermarket which was so helpful. We were met by Lenard the house Manager who welcomed us so warmly. We were totally amazed by the property and the location. It is so beautiful and private. The views from the house and balcony are stunning. The house itself is very comfortable with everything you could wish for. The snorkeling at a nearby beach is out if this world we saw up to 40 different species of fish. It was a good central location to get to other areas by car which you definatley need to hire. We needed a relaxing holiday after a tough year and we certainly got that.

Beautiful house with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

All the good things you have read about this property are 100% true. One of our best vacations ever. A perfect place to unwind. The Antiguan people are lovely and the loveliest one of all is property manager Lenard.

We recommend taking the day trip to Montserrat, having special dinner at Carlisle Bay Resort next door, spending some beach time at Darkwood, seeing Nelson's Dockyard, circumnavigating the island on big catamaran tour, beach-combing on the little beach below the house, or just sitting on the Olivette balcony with a book. We didn't have time to explore rainforest hiking trails, nor did we see the historic sights in St Johns. Saving them for next time.

Overall Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the views that we had each and every day. The peacefulness and privacy of the location was just what we needed to recharge. Everything was thought of in the house and there wasn't anything left out. It was very clean and organized. Lenard was very helpful and always available. We found the best beach on our last day in the country, Deep Bay. It's close to St John's, and slightly off the beaten path but well worth the trip. The water was the calmest we had experienced on the island and just as beautiful as Half Moon Bay!! We would definitely stay here again.

Car: recommended

This property is a solo property (not a resort type property, so there are no services onsite) but we are in the tourism belt of Antigua where there are many attractions and services within a 10-15 minute drive.

Due to the close proximity to Jolly Harbor most service (ATM/Bank, Shopping, Groceries, Car Rentals, Posts, Pharmacy, Fitness Center, Golf, Restaurants, Boat Rentals, Marina, Sailing etc.) can be acquired there.

Day passes to the nearby (5 minutes drive) to 5-Star Hotels of Curtain Bluff and Carlisle Bay Resorts can provide similar resort type services.

Island tours and excursions (Safari tours, kayaking, canoeing, zip line canopy, rainforest tours, biking tours, etc. can be acquired from local vendors and the owners would love to make some recommendations that will make your visit all you want it to be.
