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.
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.
Howard and Cheryl Adams at Jolly Villas purchased this apartment in 2007
Location, location, location. Scenic, convenient, comfortable, and a true home from home.

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.
I stayed at Hamilton Estate for eight days and I felt very comfortable, as stated it was "home away from home". The property was well kept and maintained. The customer service was great! The listing description given was very accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, and I like the closeness of restaurants.. I couldn't ask for more. Yes, I will definitely recommend my friends and family to Hamilton Estate property. My next vacation to Antigua I will be staying at the Hamilton Estate.
I stayed in apartment 2 for 17 days in February and was impressed with the standard of the accommodation. The apartment has recently been revamped and was delightful, there was everything there I needed, including a dishwasher. The bed was really comfortable and the aircon was great. Howard could not have been more helpful and arranged car hire and a trip on Jabberwocky for me. All in all a great place to stay and I wouldn't think twice about recommending it (or any of the other apartments on the complex) to my family and friends. Thank you Howard, Cheryl and your team for your great customer service.
We have recently returned from our two week holiday staying in apartment 2 at Hamilton House. The apartment is well maintained with lovely grounds surrounded by lush foliage just as the photos suggests. We hired a car for the duration of our stay in Antigua and having driven around most of the island we felt that the location of Hamilton House has some of the best beaches in the vicinity that Antigua has to offer. There are several good restaurants within walking distance and with the Sugar Ridge Resort next door it is perfect for sipping your cocktails whilst watching the sun go down over Jolly Harbour. A lovely holiday enjoyed by all the family we would definitely recommend Hamilton House and hope to return in the not to distant future!
Just to say my family and I stayed here in January 08, and had a wonderful time. We had never been to Antigua before, but the information before we went and during our stay was first class. The apartment has everything you could need provided, including a mobile phone and internet facilities. There are books and DVDs to use, and leaflets all about places to visit. The beaches are wonderful and I would definitley recommend a stay here to anyone.
We hope to return at some point.
We stayed in Apartment 2, Hamilton House for 5 weeks and loved it. It turned out to be everything we hoped for and better. The apartment was very well furnished, clean and comfortable. Our needs were taken care of from the moment we arrived at the airport when we were met and taken to the apartment. We were delighted to find a mobile phone in the apartment for making local calls which was extremely useful for booking restaurants, taxis etc. The apartment is well located for restaurants and beaches. We would thoroughly Jolly Villas if you would like to stay in quality accommodation. We shall most certainly go back there.
