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.

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!

Wonderfully peaceful holiday in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Calabash for 2 weeks in August - 2 adults and 2 kids [15 and 10] - and had an amazing time.

The house is well located a 2 minute walk from the shops [of which there are only a few], restaurants, bars and supermarket of Jolly Harbour. The beach at Jolly Harbour - which is absolutely stunning - is a 5-10 minute walk away. For everything else we would recommend hiring a car or using local taxis.

The villa itself is very comfortable, with plenty of room for 8 people easily. The 4 bedrooms are very nicely apportioned with extraordinarily comfortable beds! There are plenty of towels and linen and the maid service [every 3rd day] is superb.

The pool is large [although quite shallow] with lots of sun loungers and seating on the verranda. There is also a BBQ - which is kept spotlessly clean.

We cannot recommend Villa Calabash more highly if you want a peaceful and relaxing holiday on the beautiful island of Antigua. We will certainly be back.

Lovely villa, good location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Calabash. The property is very spacious and equipped with everything we could possibly have needed for our stay including a selection of books and DVD's. We found the local people to be extremely friendly and helpful in advising us on what to do/where to go and sourcing a taxi when we wanted to go outside of Jolly Harbour was straight forward.

The location of the villa is near to the beach, restaurants and supermarket in Jolly Harbour with the beach being the furthest away and not ideal for walking to, particularly as we had young children in our party. We were disappointed with the access road leading to the villa as whilst the road directly outside the villa is concrete, the road between this and the main road is more of a track, very uneven, unlit and with large puddles forming in the event of a rain storm and therefore we chose to hire a golf buggy to get around the resort and used it every day of our holiday.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Now when i first booked the rental, I can admit that i was very scared that it wasn't going to be what the pictures showed.. But it was everything the pictures showed and more! we were VERY satisfied with the home and all its amenities. The bathrooms are perfect. Fully stocked kitchen. and Super clean home! The management team is very kind and very attentive. Anytime we needed them, they came right away!! I would recommend this Calabash villa to everyone. Perfect stay and absolutely convenient to to the supermarket and all!! When i go back to Antigua, i will definitely stay here again.
