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.

Location, location, location. Scenic, convenient, comfortable, and a true home from home.

It was probably the busiest we have found Antigua but that was not a bad thing. The island was buzzing. We noticed a huge change at the local beach - Valley Church. What was once a quiet locals' beach has now become a cruise ship stop-off. It did mean we tried more beaches and therefore a car is essential. All the beaches in the local area were good with excellent beach-bar facilities. You must, however, take a trip to Half Moon Bay on the other side of the island - less busy but idyllic.
The apartment was fine, comfortable and well-equipped. You are aware of your neighbours and it obviously does not give the privacy of a detached villa but the pool was quiet and a good option. The apartment was well managed by Jenny who was excellent. She was there to greet and always available to assist. The whole operation was well managed and slick - transfers were spot on. The apartment itself was fully equipped with two comfortable bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a variety of eateries just two minutes away and the supermarket is a ten-minute walk.
We have stayed in hotels in Antigua in the intervening years but on balance this arrangement worked well. I tried to work out how the two compare in terms of cost. Food was definitely more expensive and Brexit has not helped the UK holiday market but a self-managing apartment was pretty much on a par with a lower end all-inclusive. The car hire - which is essential - gives a more varied itinerary and I think this will be our way to go in the future. You will not be disappointed and there is a good range of accommodation options in the portfolio.
Could not fault this apartment, great position close to supermarket and restaurants and 10 mins walk to 'picture postcard' beach.
The apartment was well equipped with everything a family of four would need for a holiday, the pool and gardens were well maintained and Jenny who looks after the guests really could not do more to make your holiday enjoyable.
Would recommend Antigua as an Island as the locals are fantastic and the beaches sunning.
Our family of four arrived June 25th, 2016 to begin our vacation for 14 days! We got picked up at the airport and driven to Hamilton Estates. It was exactly as the picture displayed it. The apartment was nice and clean when we arrived and half way through our holiday, housecleaning came in and changed all the sheets and towels. The towels were hanging dry on the line. I did laundry as I like things to be clean so I had washed some towels earlier in the week. The apartment had all the comforts of home...wifi, TV, air conditioners in each room, large ceiling fans, nice fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and plenty of pots and pans. My only complaint was that there weren't proper utensils or plastic storage containers. I almost bought a can opener as the one there isn't working.
The pool was nice and clean! We had the entire complex to ourselves for a week and a half. Being that it was July, there weren't as many guests. I am sure it is not always like that. The area was very quiet and felt safe. We didn't rent a car until three days before we left. We are a very active family so walking didn't bother us. We walked to Jolly Beach, Valley Church Beach and even home from Ffryes Beach. We walked to get groceries and my husband would carry large bottles of water while we carried the other groceries. Just a note, they have banned all plastic bags on the island so either bring cloth ones or buy them.
The grocery store was about a 5-10 minute walk door to door. If you don't have a car, it is pretty close. The bus is very convenient to each of the beaches and into town. Once we rented a car and drove to the other side of the island, we realized how fortunate we were to be staying in Hamilton Apartments. We really are on the most beautiful side of the island with beautiful beaches.
I would highly recommend Hamilton Apartment #4. I am sure they are all very nice. The furniture was lovely, especially in the master bedroom. The mattresses were VERY comfortable, as were the pillows. You will NOT be disappointed. If I could ask for a few things, it would be better utensils, more plastic storage boxes to keep dry food, can opener, and maybe replace the bathtub or fix the rusted section. Just all minor issues. Very pleased!!!!
Great apartment close to beautiful beaches!
This apartment is in a fantastic location (particulary in the off season) close to Jolly Harbour with its supermarket & resturants and a few minutes by car or a short walk to the best beaches on the island (Valley Church, turners and ffyes) It was a good value option for us travelling as a family of 4. and was a described on the website having everything you needed ,including some extras ,which are an added bonus like a dishwasher.Booking was quick and easy and having transfers included was great. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. We were the only guests there which was lovely. We were a little disappointed with the food at some of the resturants Miracles on the corner was one of the better ones and we had a final meal at Sheer rocks which was more expensive but delicious! Hiring a car is easy they deliver it to the apartment although you don't need one as the bus goes by the end of the drive and walking is easy too!
The apartment was comfortable and very well equipped. Nice quiet setting with pool which was perfect for cooling off after a hot day at the cricket. Transfers and introductions were seamless, really top notch accommodation.
