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.
Howard and Cheryl Adams at Jolly Villas purchased this Villa in 2007

Very well appointed villa in a good location.
The villa was stylish, well appointed and in a good location for some of the best beaches and restaurants on the island. The site manager Jenny was very friendly and professional and made us feel very welcome. There was some noise from the road and the bar opposite, but it didn’t effect our stay, and we come from a very quiet village with little to no ambient noise; so if we could get used to it, I think any tolerant person could. I would recommend the villa and Owners Direct. The booking process has been smooth and efficient and we had a great holiday.
Great Launching Pad for exploring Antigua
First. Great location. Jolly Harbour area has so many beaches, restaurants, excursions nearby. Also a very convenient modern grocery store nearby.
Second the Staff very helpful. From the booking with Howard, the driver Grannam and mostly the onsite help from Jenny. Made the stay easy.
Finally the property was great. All the convenciences of home. Pool was nice, Kitchen was well appointed with Pots, pans, blenders etc. So if you want to eat in and save some money you can.
If we return to Antigua we would stay at Bay House Again.
Lovely family villa
The villa was clean and spacious both inside and outdoors. We enjoyed having ensuite bathrooms for each bedroom. The pool was a decent size and essential for cooling off in the heat! Other reviews mention that the villa is close to the road and noisy, but I don't agree. It is close to the road but there is not a lot of traffic. We live in a quiet rural location and didn't find the villa's location unduly noisy at all. It is within walking distance of some gorgeous beaches, we visited Jolly beach and Valley Church bay. The local supermarket is a 10 minute walk and well stocked although expensive. We really enjoyed our holiday.
Beautiful villa in a good position
We have just returned from a lovely stay in Antigua. The villa is spacious and well designed to give a feeling of space and light. Sitting on the wrap-around veranda is a dream morning and evening sipping a cold beer or wine. The pool is warm and well looked after and is lovely to get into day or night. We walked to Jolly, Valley church & Ffryes beach from the villa without any difficulty. The supermarket is also near enough for a walk to and from. Good choice of restaurants nearby for your evening meals. Highly recommend with just 1 niggle; there is a restaurant over the road that did have loud music once or twice during our stay of 10 days into the early hours, something to bear in mind if you have young children.
Had a fab stay in this lovely holiday villa. Everything as described. The three double en suite bedrooms are a real bonus. Wonderful outside space where we spent most of our time. Supermarket in Jolly Harbour close by ( you can walk to it) and has everything you need, although it is expensive. We had a lovely meal in the Greek restaurant in Jolly Harbour and the little Italian does good take away pizza. The only negatives are the road noise affects the main bedroom, and oddly the noise continued most of the night. Also you will need to plan what you will do on the last day if you have to vacate the villa at 10.00 am and your flight home is not until the evening. We did Stingray city which was great fun and had a lovely day around English Harbour. Be warned the roads are not good if you hire a car and local driving practices somewhat interesting. Lovely beaches, including great ones close to the villa but they do get busy when the cruise ship parties arrive - after 4 pm you have them to yourself. Overall we had a great holiday, would highly recommend this villa but we did find some things very expensive in Antigua e.g £35 for a small bottle of suntan lotion.
2 weeks in July with family
There are a many good points about this property such as cleanliness , size , facility, air con but a few thing bugged me . Specifically :
Ffryes House is the same price as Bay House , but the latter is right next to the road.
The sun was up before 6 AM and the curtains didn't keep out much light.
From google maps, it appears a development open up across the road , so for 3 nights we we disturbed until well beyond midnight from said development
The pool looks a lot better maintained in the picture than the one we found, but it was adequate and very welcome. Certainly I wouldn't dive into it as it was only 4 feet-ish deep in the middle.
Very handy for the best beaches on the island though ie Ffryes for example and the supermarket
I hope this helps
I am glad that your stay at Bay House was enjoyable overall but I am sorry to hear you were disturbed on a few occasions at night. I assume you are referring to the West Coast Dining Experience which is the collection of restaurants over the road from Hamilton Estate. Generally we have found this to be a quiet venue as it's main function is serving food, and very convenient for our guests. I can only assume that with the run up to Antigua Carnival in full swing then some additional partying was taking place.
Once again, thank you for choosing Bay House for your stay.
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. The Estate is nestled within a delightful hillside setting and Jolly Beach is about a seven minute walk away. The entrance to Jolly Harbour Marina and resort is also just a 10 minutes walk away. This extensive complex offers the largest and finest marina in the Caribbean and superb recreation facilities. A fine 18-hole golf course and a sports centre with swimming pool, tennis courts, and a squash court cater for the actively minded, whilst the commercial centre has a wide range of shops, restaurants, bars and a supermarket to sustain the needs for everyday living. For all its many amenities, Jolly Harbour remains a sophisticated and tranquil setting to while away the holiday hours.
