About Sue Farnworth

Hi, I'm Sue and have had the pleasure of owning Calabash Villa for the last 5 years during which time we have enjoyed many family holidays at all times of the year. Before settling on Antigua we considered many places, eventually checking out Antigua which ticked all our boxes, English speaking, warm and sunny all year round, beautiful beaches and scenery and friendly people. We furnished the villa to create a modern, light, spacious design that lights up as the sun shines in through the many windows. We always feel uplifted whether in the villa, on the deck, in the pool or on the beach, the blue sky, turquoise sea and lush greenery colour everything.

Sue Farnworth purchased this villa in 2007

Why Sue Farnworth chose St. Mary

Alan and I bought our villa in 2007 and we have been visiting ever since often with our two grown up children and their partners and my elderly Mum who absolutely loves Antigua. We often spend Christmas and New Year in Antigua and would recommend Sailing week (late April) and not forgetting Carnival ( August). Calabash is ideally positioned, all the conveniences of Jolly Harbour Marina and with several beautiful beaches within minutes. For those wanting to explore the islands many sights, travel north to the colourful St. John's, Fort James and Dickinson Bay or turn south along the scenic Fig Tree drive to Falmouth harbour, English harbour and the historic Nelsons Dockyard.

What makes this villa unique

You do not need to have a car to enjoy our villa, being within walking distance of Jolly Harbour with it's restaurants, bars, shops and golf course, beautiful Jolly Beach & Valley Church Beach with beach chairs, sailing etc. For those wanting to explore further you can hire a car from Jolly Harbour for a few days and see the many sites and history of the island. On returning to the villa after time on the beach you can cool off in the pool, enjoy the sun loungers with drinks and look forward to your own BBQ as the sun sets.

There is a Management team who are happy to help you with any sight seeing arrangements and assist you during your stay at the villa.

Everything about this Villa was perfect.

We stayed for two weeks and our group consisted of 6 adults and 2 Young children.

The Villa is immaculate and spacious, you can see that Sue who is the owner takes so much pride and passion in even the smallest of details. Everything looks Brandnew.

The Villa is equipped with everything you could imagine, from small details like a Cocktail blender to cool boxes to take to the beach.

Bed linen, towels, beach towels were a plenty.

Barbecue outside, so clean we felt guilty for using it !

Aircon and fans throughout the property.

You can even change the colour of the lighting in the kitchen by remote control.

Great strereo, that had a good bass and wasn't tinny.

The Management Company were brilliant, came out every 3-4 days to clean the house from top to bottom and regularly came by to treat the pool and check everything was ok. Very professional and friendly.

Outside area was great, beautiful landscaped garden that attracted Hummingbirds and many other birds.

Plenty of sun loungers and out door seating. The love seat, great for taking time out and reading a book.

The Swimming pool was great, big enough to swim or to just take a dip

Location wise, you couldn't ask for better. Jolly harbour has fingers and the problem with this is that it that if you are located on one of those fingers it's a distance to anywhere.

Calabash is based on the Palm ( looking at my hand as I write!). So everything is close to hand, everything is 5-10 mins walk. The Supermarket and the Marina being the closest, this is also where the core of the restaurants are.

Beach is a stroll of about 10 mins and Jolly beach is fantastic.

You can hire Golf Carts out for about £15 a day, you can use these all over jolly harbour and much fun.

If you instead walk to the left out of the property you will see a children's play area that is 2 mins walk, there are many cheap places to eat and in some cases as cheap as the Supermarket. Island Pizza and the Red London bus which does Fish and chips to name a few.

I would like to thank Sue and the Management Company for making us feel so welcomed, before and after we landed. Always happy and quick to answer any questions, however trivial.

Thank you from myself and all the Family.

Calabash will stay in hearts and Memories forever

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of friends that stayed here. We loved everything about this villa and Jolly harbor. Sue was fantastic start to finish. She answered all my questions and offered great recommendations on what's available in the area. The villa itself was exactly what you see and it was modern and very clean. There is plenty of everything glasses, dishes, towels etc. You can tell Sue and her family take pride in their villa. Loved the pool and used it everyday. The villa is located close to the grocery store but you really need a golf cart to get your supplies to the villa. We rented golf carts from Bargain Motors 2 months ahead of our trip and Keith was great. If you are going during high season this is a must as there are not enough carts for everyone. We even booked a private catamaran trip through him. We had friends staying at the Jolly Beach Resort and the carts came in handy visiting back and forth. We loved Antigua and Calabash villa and are already talking about going back next year. Thank you Sue for making our vacation a memorable one.

Wonderful family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from our holiday in Calabash and it was a wonderful stay from start to finish. Excellent communication from both the Owner and Villa Management in Antigua leading up to our holiday. Everything was arranged well including transfers to and from the villa. We were lucky to arrange for a late checkout due to the next booking being a few days later. We were able to enjoy our last day and remain at the villa until the taxi arrived to take us to the airport. The Villa was just as described although the photographs do not do it justice enough. Comfortable beds, fantastic showers and soft towels! The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The Epicurian supermarket 5 minutes walk away, whilst being handy was very expensive. Use a local supermarket if possible as these are much cheaper. We would highly recommend this Villa to anyone thinking of visiting Antigua. We would defiantly stay here again! Thanks for having us!

Christmas and NY at Calabash

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at Calabash over Christmas and New Year. The villa is very spacious, modern, clean with a stunning pool and deck area great for relaxing on the loungers or having a BBQ in the sunshine.

The Villa is in a great location only 5 minutes walk to the supermarket and Marina where you'll find bars and restaurants and the Dive Centre. We would certainly recommend Miracles which is a Caribbean restaurant just at the entrance to Jolly Harbour. Jolly Beach is a 10 minute walk where you can hire some sun loungers, swim in the turquoise sea and get a bite to eat at Sandra's or Castaways Beach Bar. There are also other bars and restaurants including Shells Fish and Chips located in a London Bus just at the end of the road.

We hired a car for the duration of our stay at the Villa and within the 2 weeks explored the full Island and would certainly recommend this as taxis can be very expensive.

A short drive away is the sunning Sheer Rocks Restaurant, Dennis Beach Bar and Darkwood Beach which is much quieter than Jolly Beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Calabash it had everything we needed during our stay, the management team and the cleaners were brilliant too.

We will certainly be back as Calabash is an ideal location and a beautiful villa

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review it's always good to hear that you have enjoyed your holiday at our Villa and found everything you needed to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I will pass on your kind comments regarding the Cleaners and Management team they always do a good job on our behalf. Hiring a car to get around the Island and see some of the other beautiful areas in Antigua is recommended. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon.

Beautiful villa! Good location and equipped with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is so stunning, a perfect sized swimming pool and everything you could possibly need for a holiday. Everything is modern, clean and lovely. My 4 and 3 year old had a great time too! The area is quiet with a lovely saloon style village up the road which has lovely food at reasonable prices. Jolly harbour is the other direction with supermarket/shops/restaurants. We couldn't fault the villa and would highly recommend!
