Amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

It is with regret that I have to write this review as I don't want others booking the villa and we can't return.

Stayed for 10 nights with family, villa amazing, huge with all mod cons gave us all our own space and privacy right on the ocean. We were all sad to leave. Great to have all the facilities of a lovely hotel and yet have our own space. Julian the owner was a joy to deal with and couldn't help us enough.

It was one of the best holidays we have ever had. Would love to return.

This is our 2nd time visiting this beautiful Vila. It's the best location on the Saint James property. You step off the patio on to the beach. The interior was spotless when we arrived and the large kitchen has everything you would need if you wanted to cook a meal. There is also a BBQ on the patio. This Villa is perfect for all ages. I was there with my wife, in-laws and 3 children (all under 5 years old) we never felt cramped. It was also a pleasure dealing with the owner Julian. We will definitely be back again. Thanks Julian

Wonderful stay at this beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had great time staying at this beautiful villa March 2-9, 2016. The place was perfect for my 86 year old father. We enjoyed watching the beautiful birds each morning when they came to the lovely tropical flowers. The patio was the perfect place for us to gather for breakfast, lunch or for a leisurely dinner and sunset as it was so warm all evening. This villa is exceptionally well equipped. It was nicer than the pictures show as the many tropical flowers in the mature gardens don't show in the pictures. It has the best location in the resort as it is 2 steps to the sand, multiple lounge chairs are shaded by palm trees and the calm bay allowed my father to be able to go into the ocean. The water-sports centre is close by so we had fun taking out the catamaran and kayaks. Our son and his girlfriend enjoyed the beach grill and specialty drinks at many of the bars. We found the other restaurants at the resort overpriced for the quality of food.

The resort staff were exceptionally accommodating and we even had the General Manager pick my Dad up on his golf cart one day when we were walking back to the villa after touring the beautiful exceptionally well maintained grounds. The staff were happy utilize the golf carts to transport my father out to the pier when we went on the resort snorkeling trip. This excursion was fabulous and we were delighted to see many different types of fish and different coral in the calm clear water. Staff threw out food so that fish would come up to the boat so that my father could enjoy them as well.

Julian was very easy to work with and provided many recommendations that were exceptionally helpful. Our car rental afforded us the luxury of touring the island to Nelson's Dockyard, Devil's Bridge, Half Moon Bay, Harmony Hall (new cement road which makes getting there easy now), Fig Tree Drive through the rain forest and up to Jolly Beach. Jacqui O's Love Beach was a perfect spot to stop and have a drink and view the beautiful turquoise water. Our last evening we visited La Mia Cucina for a fantastic meal with a beautiful view of the harbour. Different websites gave us the impression that American money was the preferred currency. However, Eastern Carribean dollars are widely used at stores and restaurants.

We would certainly recommend this villa and wouldn't hesitate to return ourselves.

Great stay at St. James Club Villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 9 days in Julian and Denis' villa in Jan/Feb 2016. The villa was in excellent condition and in a great location in the attractive St. James Club. We really enjoyed our time at the property, finding the furnishings comfortable and high quality and all the appliances in working order.

The location of the villa right on Mamora Bay was fabulous while still fairly private. Views were beautiful.

We didn't eat at the resort restaurants besides the beach snack bar which we love (having previously found the other restaurants overpriced for offerings). We enjoyed kayaking, sailing the hobie cats, and playing tennis. The waters of Mamora Bay, while not crystal clear, were always calm and clean as was the beach. Coco's beach was too rough and windy to go to while we were there.

Favorite restaurants were The Hideout, Trappas, Flatties, Boom, Dennnis', and Sheer Rocks, although I don't think we really had a bad meal anywhere-nothing is cheap, though. We also recommend going to Half Moon Beach (nice beach restaurant there), Pigeon Beach (very pretty with shade, facilities, and good restaurants), Long Bay (very calm and beautiful crystal clear water), Fryes, and Valley Church beach. If you have a chance, go visit the Donkey sanctuary-they are doing good work there, and you can pet and brush the friendly donkeys and even adopt one.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay at the villa and on beautiful Antigua! Wish we were there now.

Great Choice for our Family!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the week of 2/28 - 3/7 at this villa with our family, Mom & Dad (50) and four children 7, 18, 22 & 25. We are experienced travelers and have done a variety of island, AI and cruise vacations over the years.

After deciding on Antigua as our destination we were looking for something a little different from the typical AI resort experience and luckily found the best of both worlds. This beautiful 3BR villa sits a few feet away from the bay side beach at the St. James Club Resort and is perfectly situated to provide easy access to all of the amenities the SJC has to offer….which are many! Tennis, fitness, sailing, kayaking, paddle boards and pedal boats are all included…there are also snorkel trips, diving and any other activities you could want available for a fee through the on-site guest services. We also rented a 4x4 for the week so we had the freedom to stay at the beach or explore the island at our leisure. We chose not to do the AI option and just paid as we went in the various bars and restaurants available at the resort. We also used local grocery stores to stock up on a few things as well as a few of the local restaurants. I found both the prices at the resort as well as those off-site to be reasonable as far as island prices go.

My children commented that the resort was beautiful with mature gardens, palm trees and grounds and was one of the nicest we have visited. The facility was not crowded so there was never a wait for anything and finding a beach chair or six was never a problem regardless of the time we ventured to the beach.

The nightlife is sedate, however, there are plenty of off-site locations available should you want to party into the night. Driving around the island was a bit of an adventure but the local people were very friendly and always willing to offer directions to a (semi) lost tourist.

The service at the resort….wait staff, bartenders, grounds crew and activity/sports center were very helpful and always greeted us with a smile and was excellent. The food at the resort was very good and according to my family was better than most we have experienced elsewhere.

The owner, Julian, was a pleasure to deal with and everything was represented as expected. The villa had everything needed to support our family and offered an excellent place to be part of a full service resort while having the privacy of our own villa.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend this villa and this resort and would return in a heartbeat!

I took my wife, 2 1/2 year old, 6 month old and my inlaws to this beautiful villa to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. This villa has the best location on the beach. The water is only a few steps from the patio. Inside everything is beautiful, the pictures say it all. This place has everything you might need if you decide you want to cook at home. WARNING.. If you think you are going to save money by doing so YOU ARE MISTAKEN. That was my plan but after a $40.00 cab ride to a small market 15 minutes away and spending $12.50 for a half gallon of milk. (2 bags of groceries $177.00) I went back and signed up for all inclusive meal plan. (125.00 per person food and drink). But that is not a reflection of this villa or the saint james club. Julian the owner of the villa was very helpful and answered all questions quickly. This Villa was perfect for a family vacation, I could sit on the patio and watch my son in the the CALM waters. The 3rd bedroom is actually separate from the main villa giving us and my inlaws plenty of privacy. It has a separate entrance and patio. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation look no further, you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Eugene I'm glad that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at the villa but I think that the prices you quote are in EC$ NOT US$.....I just checked the price for a cab to the store and it's $40EC ..so approx $14.5USD....the rate is approximately US$1.00 : EC$2.70...so that is where any confusion seems to be! Antigua is not the cheapest place to buy groceries in the world, virtually everything has to be shipped in and fresh food is normally flown in..so that's why it's dearer than at home. Also, the local mini mart is dearer than using one of the large supermarkets. Thanks for your great comments about the villa and I do hope that you come again.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : VC Bird International Airport at 25 Miles Nearest Barpub : On site at 50 Metres Nearest Golf : Golf at 10 Miles Nearest Restaurant : On site at 50 Metres Nearest Beach : On site at 1 Metres Car: not necessary

Antigua has 365 beautiful sandy beaches, one for each day of the year! (Actually there may be more, but who's counting!)

The villa is located within the St James Club complex (as seen on UK TV's X Factor and US TV's The Batchelorette..it was where Nicole Scherzinger has her 'judges house') and close to both English and Falmouth harbours with their array of restaurants and home to sailing and yachting in the Caribbean. Guests will receive a guide to the local restaurants and contact details that we have produced from trying most of them out ourselves and comments from other guests...it's really helpful!

The St James Club is located on a 100acre private estate and offers excellent security and all the facilities a top class hotel normally provides, all available to the villa.

A car is useful but not required as taxis are plentiful and inexpensive.
