ian jones purchased this villa in 2006
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.
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.
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
The house is perfect ,tranquil but closer enough to the beach,restaurants & bars. However sadly since Wednesday the 4th the filtration system in the pool has not worked and has become totally unusable as is full of dead leaves flies and other insect types . Also the decking on the far side of the pool has become very unstable and I myself would not walk on it until repaired. We have loved our stay and if we were sure the faults were corrected then yes we would stay again although sadly these last impressions could be the memories that stay with us the strongest, if not for these I would not hesitate to give five stars.
Had a great week with family and a pal from Canada. The Banana House is exceptionally well equipped and well looked after by Bart, the Manager. Lovely little pool and smart gardens. I was surprised at how spacious it was and everything there that you need. A nice stroll away from the best beach on the island and close to the Epicurean supermarket. Castaways on the beach is a fun place for a relaxed drink or ten! Don't buy the Queen Conch shells from the itinerant trader! You need an import licence for these and it will be taken from you in UK. The house has several, presumably left by people who found this out after purchasing them!
I think we'll be back.
We often stay in properties in the UK. This one easily slept 6 with a bathroom for each room with a pool and well maintained garden .
Compared to UK prices great value for the money and guaranteed sunshine.
Walking distance to the beach and restuarants but would recommend hiring a car to see much more of this beautiful island. The property manager Bart was excellent and nothing was too much trouble though you must remember you are in the Carribean !
Friendly locals and a fantastic place for a holiday!
