Upper Floor Apartment 1
Hamilton Estate is a private development of villas and apartments adjacent to Jolly Harbour, the premier marina, golf and leisure resort in the Caribbean, situated on the beautiful west coast of Antigua. Hamilton House stands in its own tropical garden with a large 30 feet long swimming pool and comprises four well-appointed and delightfully furnished 2-bedroom apartments.
We are situated next to the new luxury Sugar Ridge boutique hotel which offers a spa, a gym, two restaurants and sophisticated nightly entertainment.
Jolly Beach is about a 7 minutes walk away; a long sweep of soft white sand and turquoise sea fringed by palm trees, and the entrance to the marina is also just a ten minutes walk away.
Guests staying at Hamilton House can choose to include one or more days of their holiday aboard our 50' sailing yacht. Further details are shown below.
More than just a property rental: We pride ourselves in making every Jolly Villas holiday a special and personal experience. It's our job to make sure your visit to Antigua is as relaxing, carefree and memorable as you would wish, from helping you arrange flights, meeting and greeting you at the airport, providing you with a welcome pack on arrival, and supporting you with 24/7 local customer service should you experience any concerns during your stay; all in one of the world's most desirable holiday locations. We can arrange your car hire, help you with any excursions you may be tempted by and, of course, get you on to the water in a wide range of activities, including a really special day on our 50’ yacht “Jabberwocky”.
Combine your stay with a day's sailing: For a very special experience, a day on our 50' sailing yacht will definitely prove a holiday highlight. The yacht is spacious and fitted out to an extremely high standard with a comprehensive inventory of equipment for personal safety and comfort. For fun and relaxation there are fins, masks and snorkels and a plethora of water toys; plus the tender for pottering about and shore leave.
There are so many places to explore around the coast of Antigua that each day on board offers new sights and destinations. You can choose to take it easy and relax for the day, leaving our crew to take care of everything, or you can actively participate in sailing the yacht. Snorkel over coral reefs and observe the Caribbean marine life - exotic fish, rays, turtles and dolphins - or laze on deck and enjoy freshly prepared meals with a choice of drinks. To end the day, drop anchor in another secluded bay, and enjoy canapés and cocktails as the sun goes down.

About Howard and Cheryl Adams at Jolly Villas
We absolutely love Antigua. We came on a visit and hardly seem to have been away since. Antigua is the heart and soul of the Caribbean, an exotic tropical island with an abundance of palm-fringed beaches, warm sparkling seas, English-speaking and life-loving locals, a wealth of land and water based activities, a huge choice of delicious international cuisines, and a background soundtrack of calypso and reggae. No wonder we decided to make Antigua our second home.

Our stay at Hamilton Estates started very badly. We had booked a pick up from the airport with the manager of the apartments. It did not arrive. We took a taxi, but there was nobody at the apartment to greet us and the apartment was locked. The water in the swimming pool was bright green and the garden furniture around it was in disarray. We knew, at 11 o’clock that we were early and could not have the keys to the apartment until the middle of the afternoon, but just wanted to dump our luggage.
If it hadn’t been for a very kind local lady, who was nothing to do with the apartments, things would have been even worse. She phoned the manager and then took us to the supermarket to get some provisions whilst we waited for the apartment to be opened.
On entering apartment one, we found that it was not much like the photos on the internet. It looked very tired and in need of updating. Basic things like new mastic around the bath and toilet, and fresh paint around the window frames were not done.
After returning from lunch (which was paid for by the housekeeping supervisor), we discovered that some of the kitchen appliances didn’t work and that there was no Wi-Fi. The manager did sort out the Wi-Fi problem, and chemicals were put into the pool that evening. However, the residue was not cleaned out at all during our 7 nights there and we were unable to use the pool at all during our stay. There were excuses made throughout the week about why things were not as promised on the web-site.
During our stay in the apartment the water pressure fluctuated and the taps spat most of the time indicating that there was air in the system.
There were positive aspects about the apartment. It was spacious, clean and the air conditioning worked well. The view from the balcony was attractive. The apartment was relatively quiet.
We enjoyed our time in Antigua, but unfortunately, it was not thanks in any way to the apartment. We could not recommend it or would ever go back there.
I loved Hamilton Estates. I would not only stay here again, I would recommend this property!!!
My family and I enjoyed our stay immensely. Jenny was great!!! We would definitely come back!!!
Just as we remembered it!
Once again, we had a lovely two weeks in Apartment 1 at Hamilton House. The views of the jewel coloured Caribbean sea while you shower are beautiful never mind from the balcony, the lovely pool and all the comforts of home in the kitchen (plus very efficient and effective air conditioning) made this holiday thoroughly enjoyable. Parking for the hire car, arranged through the owners, and the ability to contact the manager with the cell phone provided made it getting around easy made us feel support was at hand. The wi-fi seems to have improved since last time and we could see they have been keeping things up -to-date generally with a new washing machine and safe since our last visit. I would definitely recommend and if we could afford it we would probably try to buy the place!
The property was clean, quiet and had everything we needed.
My wife, 3 year old son and I had a wonderful two week holiday in Antigua at this property. It was very relaxing and the property had everything that we needed. Jenny was extremely helpful and very friendly! We will definitely be back for another holiday in the future!
another day in paradise
Howard was very easy to deal with and very prompt with responses to questions etc.
we were met at the airport by a lovely lady called Brenda who whisked us away through the "rush hour", we were greeted at the property by an equally friendly and informative property manager - Jenny. a mobile phone was provided for our use whilst there and nothing was too much trouble for her.
the apartment itself was well equipped with TV ( not used by us especially when paradise is outside your door), dishwasher , washing machine and good sized fridge/freezer. the property is well maintained and very clean.
the pool is a welcome addition and just right after a hard day on the beach to cool off,
Valley Church Beach ( beautiful) is just about walkable in 15-20m , Jolly Harbour and Beach about the same in the opposite direction.
nearest restaurant is called Miracles , which we thoroughly enjoyed 3 times with fresh seafood and Carribean flavours. The Nest at Valley Church Beach is excellent as is Dennis's at Ffryes Beach, neither seemed to be open past sunset but Dennis's would ( they said ) if they had reservations.
overall a most enjoyable holiday and one I would love to repeat!
Exactly as described
Spacious apartment and we believe the best one out of the four in the block. South facing good sized balcony with a sea view in the distance. Everything you could possibly need was supplied and we encountered no problems at all during our 3 week stay. Walking distance of the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. The Agent, Jenny, was very helpful and friendly, always on hand if needed and also saw us off very warmly. Dealing with the Agent in the U.K., Howard, was also easy and efficient.
Hamilton Estate is situated on the Caribbean west coast of Antigua, a fifteen minutes drive to the capital St John's and twenty-minutes from the airport.
