Great location, very comfortable
The place was spotless when we pulled in, in fact the young lady was finishing up the chores and gave us a quick tour and showed us athe basics e.g. vault operation, TV etc. The house itself is well situated about 5 minutes walk from the supermarket and 10 from the beach. The house itself is in need of some refreshing in spots but nothing to impact our stay. We were 5 adults everything worked well no issues with water or toilets. There is some construction across the street but we did not find it all that disruptive the occacional hammering and heavy equipment operating for short periods of time when we were at the house. The minor issues we did run into were dealt with almost immediately by the property manager to our satisfaction. All in all i do not hesitate to recommend this place, my family fully enjoyed our stay there.
The property was clean and presented well. No issues with any of the facilities .
A lovely villa brightly painted in a perfect location and easy access to jolly harbour . The pool was perfectly clean and was checked by Carribean water every Wednesday . There was some noise from dogs and building ( but they were only pouring concrete). Nothing excessive . Not sure why a previous reviewer had such major issues and I’m pleased I took no notice of his review when booking this at short notice . Antigua is a beautiful island with lots to see and lots of beaches and activities . Why spend days in the villa when you can see the joys of the island . The only way the building work or dogs could annoy would be if you spent all day in the villa. I have put this comment as they were extremely harsh and suggest if people want to lounge around a pool all day they book a fully inclusive holiday . Antigua is a third world country and has the charms of the Carribean . If it doesn’t get done today it may the day after or even the day after that . That is the Carribean ! Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday meeting the locals and discovering Antigua . Would highly recommend a visit .
A run down. Stay away.
The villa is substandard in every way. The shutters are falling down, the fence is mainly rotten and the water supply is intermittent. You may need to flush the toilets with water from the swimming pool. There is noise from a construction site at the front of the property and almost continuous barking from dogs loose in adjacent gardens. The access road is rutted, unmade and resembles a farm track. It is dangerous after rain. It is hardly lit at night. If you need any cooking utensils (non-stick saucepans, sharp knives, serving spoons or dishes etc.) take them with you. Be prepared to strip your bed and wash your own bed linen if the rusty creaking washing machine works - given it needs water to do this. Jolly Harbour is a good place for a holiday with a superb swimming pool, excellent restaurants, car hire availability and a well-stocked supermarket. Enjoy it but not from this villa. This review carries one star only because it cannot be submitted without a star. It does not deserve that star.
Exceeded my Expectations
My boyfriend and I decided to try something different for vacation this year instead of an all inclusive we wanted to try a vacation rental. Since neither of us have ever done this we were both nervous wondering if the house was going to be what we expected. We were so happy when we arrived to see that it was far better than we hoped. So much space, and privacy. The house was very very clean, everyone was very helpful, anything we needed we could call Bart and he would arrange. We we located within walking distance of everything, we ate every night in the harbor, the food was amazing and the prices were very reasonable, and every where had happy hour. I would recommend this rental time and time again. I tried to rent it again for xmas but it was booked up, I will be renting again and taking my children. I cannot wait to come back! Everything was perfect.
A lovely Stay
We had a lovely stay at Banana House. The photos are very accurate. This villa is kept very, very clean and is well equipped. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable, towels plush and they left us a nice little supply of breakfast items in the frig. The pool is refreshing. You can walk down to a large grocery store in 5 mins. Beach is easy 10 min walk. There are several nice restaurants within walking distance as well as car rental, bank and boat charters. Bart the manager is very professional and helpful. I'd recommend this villa and Jolly Harbor is a good area for tourists. There are people hawking goods or services on the beach but all, except one, were polite and graciously took no for and answer and moved along.
Thanks for your recommendation and im glad you enjoyed your holiday
This was our first trip to Antigua and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Bart the house manager was incredibly helpful and friendly. We stayed in the Villa for three weeks and found it to be a fantastic base to explore the island. I would recommend hiring a car though as it gives you a lot more freedom. The villa provided all that we wanted except for a dishwasher which is essential for a large party. On the whole great value for money and would thoroughly recommend this villa
