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.

Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had a very enjoyable holiday in apartment 2 of Hamiliton House. Everything was as described on the website. Beaches and supermarket all within reasonable walking distance. The only issues we found with the accommodation were only minor and have been included in previous customer reviews, these being refurbishment of bathrooms now required and cooker is probably past its best, one ring not working or permanently on very low. The free transfers from and to the airport went very smoothly and Jenny was very friendly and helpful with advice regarding restaurants etc.
Any contact I had with Howard was always responded to promptly and if we ever return to the same area wouldn't hesitate to book again.
We stayed in Apartment 2 upstairs as we wanted a nice view .. I managed the stairs well considering my new knee replacement .. we hired a car which I think you need to get out and around the beautiful island of Antigua. The beaches are amazing and great food bars although can be quite expensive. Jenny’s warm welcome and fabulous knowledge was brilliant... our only concern was it just needed updated as everything looked tired but it has not put us off as we will definitely be returning and staying at Hamilton House ..
Had a lovely stay.
This was our second visit to Antigua having stayed inside the Jolly Harbour complex previously.
We decided to have a chill out holiday this time after touring around most of the island last time. Apartment 2 was very relaxing with more than enough space for just 2 of us but with the bonus of the swimming pool.We made good use of all the kitchen facilities.Showers were good and strong.No wi fi problems.
A great bonus was the airport transfers.Emmalynn was the guest manager and was a great help if we had a any minor issues or needed advice
We did hire a car from Tropical rentals.A small SUV.A good deal.
We used it to shop,especially the Jolly Harbour supermarket and stores and visit beaches.
The great location means you have easy access to some of the best beaches on the island.Valley Church,Turners,Ffryes Darkwood, are all stunning.The beach next to the Cocobay resort (coco beach i think) is lovely too although hard to get deckchairs because the hotel chairs are all thats available.To be honest we blagged a couple.
Our favourite was the beautiful secluded Hermitage beach in front of the exlusive resort.Go through Jolly Harbour estate,turn left out of the back security gate and follow the dusty unmade road.Go past the back of the Hermitage beach resort hotel and parking is available.Hotel guests pay a premium to stay and swim there and you can see why.It is a public beach.Bring your own sand roll though.
Apart from eating in, the NEST on Valley Church was very good for Bar food.The Italian in JH and SHELLS fish and chips with the red bus over the road were also very good.
Never got round to visiting Sugar Ridge next door for a drink or food.Happy hours at the Crows nest bar in JH and Castaways on JH beach are very good.
Howard was very helpful in his emails with advice to any questions i had.
Would reccomend and stay again.
A comfortable well situated appartment
This was our second stay at Hamilton House and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment is well maintained and equipped, with a good balcony offering views of the sunset. It is well situated being within walking distance of both Jolly Harbour and it's facilities and the local beach at Valley Church. Other excellent beaches and restaurants are nearby.
Although not essential, car hire for some or all of the time enables you to make the most of the island.
The apartment had every thing we needed and required. Will definitely be visiting again.
Myself (John, Pat and Nick) had booked Hamilton house as a base to take some cricket in and some relaxing down time. Prior to booking we weren't expecting a pick up from the airport but received a welcome email from Howard of a free pick up.when we arrived at Hamilton house Jenny Hadeed was there to greet us . Very friendly and informative information. just to emphasize how helpful every one has been, Cosmo picked us up from the airport also took us to the cricket stadium to buy tickets the day before the game. Not knowing the ticket office only takes cash. We only had $100 in cash. We needed $50 more so borrowed $50 off Cosmo. (Over and above job wise )(cheers Cosmo) Jenny was very helpful from day 1, Anything that was required was delivered. Thanks once again Jenny, Howard and Cosmo. (John, Pat and Nick.
Lovely Modern Apartment
Spent a very comfortable 9 days (8 nights) in Apartment 2 of Hamilton House. The apartment is very clean, spacious and nicely furnished with aircon and ceiling fans in the living space and bedrooms. The master bedroom has two wardrobes both with a good supply of hangers and one which houses a safe. It also has an en suite bathroom with shower over the bath, vanity sink unit and mirrored cupboard over the sink. The kitchen in the apartment is fully equipped with all the cooking utensils you would need to make meals, if you so wished. It also has a dishwasher, washing machine, cooker, fridge freezer and microwave. The living area has plenty of seating, with flat screen TV and CD player at one end and table and chairs at the Kitchen/dining end. There is wifi in the property but this can be very intermittent at times. The apartment has a large veranda which is accessed from the master bedroom or the living room, with 2 sun loungers, table and chairs and charcoal bbq. This overlooks the grounds of Hamilton Estate but the sea can be seen in the distance.
The Jolly Harbour complex is about a 10-15 minute walk but it is more comfortable to travel by car. The road doesn’t provide much space to walk and it can be quite dark walking along the road at night. There are several restaurants en route to Jolly Harbour, Shell’s Fish & Chips is just opposite and is located inside a red double decker bus and then there is Miracles restaurant which I’ve heard does good lobster, we only had drinks there. We did however have breakfast at Castaways Bar and Grill which is on the beach. They have different events on different evenings and on Friday night they have a bbq buffet with a band and bonfire on the beach.
We also had drinks at Westpoint which overlooks the marina. They have Karaoke on Thursday evenings from 9pm. We also had some lovely wine at Akropolis, Al Porto and the Mayday restaurant.
Howard is a great host. He was very prompt with his responses to my emails with my numerous questions. Our transfers to and from the airport were included and we were met promptly even though our flight was delayed. We arrived at the property at approx 11 pm and were greeted and shown how everything worked and had our questions answered. Great service, Howard and your team. I would definitely recommend this property, Our party consisted of 3 adults and we stayed August 2016.
