A Superlative Luxury Villa offering a large infinity pool & several lush gardens
Why Roger chose Jolly Harbour
Although just across the road from the beach , it would be difficult to find another property which offers the same combination of tranquillity, spaciousness, quality and location - plus of course with those pristine beaches right on your doorstep. Add in the convenience of Jolly Harbour, plus the incredible views from Cactus and you have an unbeatable combination where fantasy turns into reality

What can you say that hasn't already been said...?
This was so much more than a holiday rental. The house is obviously superb, but the backup available from Hazel et al really makes you feel secure.
Local restaurants were excellent (although a number were closed because we were out of season) - I usually never cook on holiday but to be honest I enjoyed most the relaxing atmosphere of using the gas barbeque and eating on the verandah with my family and a bottle of wine or 2 (the nearby supermarket is also excellent!).
I thoroughly recommend this house to anyone who is considering a quality holiday rental. Thank you Roger - it was good to meet you and put a face to the name too!
Fabulous house on an amazing island
My little family of three is just back from an amazing week at Cactus house. I've traveled the Caribbean and stayed at many villas but this one is truly special. The villa is immaculate and very well maintained. Everything is in tip top condition. The pool and house are exactly as pictured. There were no surprises other than I underestimated just how lovely the house, view, and pool were going to be.
Everything about our experience was perfection! Roger was very responsive to my questions. He sent a packet of information on the house and island that was very helpful. He arranged to have Lava pick us up at the airport. It was so nice to have Lava was waiting for us with a sign as we exited customs. We got to the house as quickly as possible. At the house, we were met by Hazel who explained all the pertinent features of the house and made sure we had everything we needed. Then, they both disappeared allowing us to enjoy our vacation.
I took Roger's advice and rented a car from Sunny's. While the house is within walking distance of beautiful beaches, the grocery store, and restaurants, I would recommend a car. The house sits high up on a hill to take advantage of the sweeping views. It would get tiring having to haul grocery and water up it.
Antigua and Cactus house were amazing. I do not have a bit of criticism. It was a vacation I will not forget. I hope we can return. I would not hesitate in renting Cactus house in the future.
Thank you Roger and team.
We have just had the most lovely time staying at Crocus, welcomed from the start by Hazel who was readily available to sort out any problems, very spacious well equipped villa and everyone we met so friendly and helpful
A Fortnight To Remember
We have just spent two weeks over Easter in the most fantastic spot on the Island. We managed to get all our family together (as a surprise 50th Birthday) and we were not disappointed. Cactus House is fantastic- plenty of space to spread out, large bedrooms all with en suite and a great pool to chill out in once back from the Beach. Right from the airport we were met by Lava who delivered us right to the door and was there on hand when ever we wanted a taxi. Hazel who looks after the property kept in touch to make sure we had everything we needed so completely worry free. Thanks to Roger for sharing this villa, and hopefully we can do it all again for another fortnight to remember
Beautiful villa, beatiful views
This villa promised a lot and delivered on it all. Fantastic location, lots of space and comfortable living. Roger has thought of everything a family could need for a great vacation and if you have any problems, Hazel the property manager is on hand to help you.
Amazing property and staff
Our stay at Cactus House was excellent. The property and house was gorgeous and pristine when we arrived. The property manager and driver met us on our arrival even though the flight was 7 hours late. All of the staff were great. The owner went above and beyond by providing detailed information about the house and the island. It was a huge plus. The house is close to beaches, restaurants and shopping. The view from the deck is spectacular. We would certainly recommend Cactus House and bottom line-- We will be returning.
Cactus House is situated at the exclusive Hamilton Estate on the West coast of Antigua, thus facing the Caribbean sea.
Cactus House (4 bedroom 5 bathroom) is situated on the hillside and was only finished two years ago, being built virtually regardless of cost with the intention of providing luxury accommodation for up to 8 people. However it is equally popular with couples who want the ultimate in space , peace and privacy. This is a sumptuous Villa and already regarded as one of the best properties in the area. Naturally the 270' Caribbean views are stunning from either the lounge terrace or from the lower pool deck , which has the largest private infinity swimming pool locally.
In addition to the pool deck there is also a very private sun terrace, which has a BBQ. area. The location is not overlooked in anyway so offers absolute privacy .
Private transfers are complimentary with our own driver and take about 30 minutes from the Airport or about 20 minutes from St Johns the Capital. The peaceful location is flanked on one side by the new 5* Sugar Ridge Hotel and green open land on the other, then there are densely wooded rolling hills at the rear. A ten minute walk takes you to Jolly Harbour, which is the premier Marina on the west coast offering extensive tourist infrastructure and golf. So apart from many yachts, boats, banks and restaurants, there is an excellent commercial centre which caters for all needs. The whole area is surrounded by some of the world's best soft powder sand beaches and azure sea.
Unlike the English Harbour area , the restaurants, shops and amenities at 'Jolly' do not close down during the quieter months of April - November, so you are assured that virtually everything is available to you for the whole year long.
Antigua is the closest of the major Caribbean Islands with a flight time of under 8 hours. It's small size of only about 100 square miles with a population of 85000, means it is easy to get round, plus it has one of the most envied climates in the West Indies, lying where the Caribbean sea meets the Atlantic. Its proximity to the equator means that there are no distinct weather seasons and is regarded as the driest of the Caribbean Islands with little difference in temperature each year. The normal daily temperature is about 27'C (80'f) with a variation of just a few degrees either side during the year. Winter is regarded as December - March, but most of the rain falls August - November. The hurricane season is technically July - November, but being so far south of the hurricane belt means that it is almost 20 years since the Island was last affected. Antigua is one of the Leeward Islands, so benefits from cooling trade winds which makes the tropical climate very acceptable. These winds also make it a great location for sailing and water sports, additionally the crystal clear waters are great for diving and snorkeling.
