nice villa, great location
The villa has been updated. The owner is very good to work with, we had a few small problems that were fixed quickly. The loungers on the deck need to be replaced. Overall the villa is very nice, We would stay in this villa again.
Thank you for these comments. Loungers on our to do list on our next visit.
Will be great when finished
Still in the process of being refurbished when we stayed but those bits that have been completed are nice. Had everything we needed and owners very very helpful.
Thank you for this - have been waiting for a gap in bookings to finish - work is now complete
227D South Finger Jolly Harbour Antigua
Lesley and myself stayed in 227D for 2 weeks during the festive season and into January 2019. We had stayed there previously 2 years before. We are regular visitors to Jolly Harbour and in fact owned a similar property to 227D just some 4 properties down for over 10 years. Jolly Harbour(Antigua) is not London or New York, it is a tropical island where the ongoing up keep of accommodation is an ongoing necessity. Gordon & Margaret have just had a complete refurbishment throughout the ground floor including the kitchen with all brand new state of the art appliances. This makes it a very comfortable property to live in. The upstairs rooms are comfortable as are the beds and bedding. Being tropical, yes you get the odd mosquito and cock roach but with the necessary prevention, these do not cause a problem certainly not within the property.The property is well served with pots and pans and all cutlery etc and Wi Fi, as well as a television which receives worldwide programs, in particular all British Sport..The property is within 300 yards of a wonderful beach and is indeed "Paradise". We shall be returning at our earliest convenience and once again we will be staying at 227D.
Geoff & Lesley
Glad that Lesley and Geoff had another great holiday and appreciated the improvements that have been made with the renovations to the villa. We look forward to welcoming them back in the future.
Review for Villa in my Favorite Island
We rented 2 Villas for my Sisters wedding. Antigua is my slice of heaven, and a place I would recommend to everyone. The beaches, the people, the walks, St Johns, English harbour, Shirley Heights are all amazing. We have visited Antigua / Jolly harbour several times, and are planning a return already.
This Villa was not what we expected. The BBQ was rusty, dirty and unusable, the screen to the patio was fixed to a solid window so we were unable to have the door open to allow a breeze through. The windows in the bedrooms were old and tired and we could not open them properly. The stove was not working well, the burners smoked everytime we turned them on. the pans in the cupboard were all burned and worn out and needed replacing. The sink in the upstairs double room was very slow to drain, even after we had it looked at. The view in the back patio was hindered by several beautiful yachts. In general this villa was tired looking and in need of some TLC. The curtains had stains in the bottom. A lick of paint, new stove / bbq and cooking utensils plus a working screen door and this Villa could be lovely. The 2 x week cleaning was great. The Villa was clean, and fresh smelling. The owners were helpful and friendly to rent from. If your looking for a just sleep in and then explore Antigua, it could work for you. If you are looking to relax on the dock, do some dock fishing, BBQ, and generally hang out in the villa for a relaxing time, then I would think twice about this one. That being said, we had a wonderful family vacation. Thank you for allowing us to rent your Villa in this caribbean paradise.
Rented March/April Toronto , Canada
We are sorry that this guest found some faults with the villa and we are taking steps to rectify these where we can. The BBQ grill has been a constant problem as guests continually fail to clean it after use so we have reluctantly decided to remove it from the villa. We have also arranged to have the curtains cleaned and they will be replaced soon.
We do not understand the comment re the screen on the patio/deck door as this covers an openable sliding door and don't know what we can do about the view from the patio being blocked by yachts as this is, after all, a marina.
Great location, lovely place
Had everything we needed and owners very helpful with any queries we had. A buggy was kind of essential for me and would be handy for anyone with lots of shopping to do. Looking forward to returning next year.
The villa was in a great location, fantastic view onto the private docks and sun all afternoon. The villa was close to the beach and shops for a nice stroll. Easy to gain access through HBK Rentals and the security around the site was great too. The beach offers loads of watersports, don't be afraid to bargain though. One added tip is get your free sunloungers from Castaways Bar and just pay for the parasole - we found this to be half price from other renters. A good range of resturants that where well priced and excellent food. Overall a fantastic holiday and would certainly revisit. Thanks Gordon and Maureen for the use of your villa and communication throughout.
Thanks for yet another great review and glad that once again a guest has had a great holiday in our villa.
