About Tessa Morris

We have been visiting Antigua for 25 years as we have family on the island, we love our time spent in Jolly Harbour and return at least twice a year, with friends and with family.

We have lived in the New Forest area for the last 30 years where we have brought up our family.

Tessa Morris purchased this villa in 2013

Why Tessa Morris chose St. Mary

This Villa is positioned in one of the best locations of the Jolly Harbour complex, firstly South Finger is far better than the North Finger for location, all amenities and supermarket, secondly the villa is a very short walk to the beach which can only be described as truly amazing.

Laid back week in the sun

  • 4 of 5

The owners arranged for a taxi to collect us from the airport and met us at the villa to show us around. They had provided essentials for us - milk, bread, fruit juice, margarine, tea, coffee, wine & biscuits which were lovely to have available after the journey. There were helpful labels and bits of information around the villa explaining which switch did what and some of the power outlets were British standard. The villa was equipped with everything we needed and all worked well. The sun shone on the rear patio from morning until around 1 p.m. The beautiful beach was a 2 minute stroll away and had a vibrant bar (Castaways) with a happy hour from 16:30 - 18:30. The main reception area with a variety of restaurants and bars and a well stocked supermarket was a 10 minute leisurely stroll away. For those of limited mobility there are golf carts for hire on site. If you like some island experience, there are local small buses which take you into St Johns for EC$3.25 each way (£0.95) in 15-20 minutes. The owners were staying next door for the first half of our stay and remained very approachable, helpful, friendly and concerned that we were having a good time. I would certainly stay here again when I next visit Antigua.

Lovely 2 bed villa on Jolly Harbour's south finger

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned (10 May 2017) from Antigua having spent 10 days at a lovely villa on the south finger of Jolly Harbour.

The villa is nicely decorated and has all the mod-cons including A/C that you would need for a comfortable and relaxed holiday. Lovely views from the deck at the rear of the property overlooking the marina. Although we didn't use it, there was also a good sized BBQ.

The owners of the villa, Tessa and John have the villa next door, and were there during our stay. They were excellent hosts. Very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

The villa is in an excellent location with a beautiful beach just a few minutes stroll away. There's a nice bar/restaurant called Castaways with plenty of interesting customers to chat to particularly at happy hour! The well stocked supermarket is about 15 minutes walk away but can seem longer in the heat of the day. There are some very nice restaurants on the site, al Porto being our favourite. We rented a golf cart for a few days at $20 U/S a day to get around the complex which made getting to the shops and eateries easy.

Would have no hesitation in recommending this villa and its location to anyone considering a holiday in Antigua.

Would just like to thank the lovely Mary who did the airport transfers and getting us to and from Shirley Heights. Very professional and good fun.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here April 2017 . The villa is situated on the south finger and is literally a 2 minute walk to the most stunning beach , white sand terquoise sea , a beach bar for refreshments . We did hire a buggy for a few nights to explore but on 20 dollars a day . ( don't settle for the first price they offer you for beach beds / umbrellas!!!!!)

We ate at some lovely restaurants Melinas , al Porto mayday on the resort then further a folds o j s , Catherine's and coconut grove .

Good to get out and explore some of the other amazing beaches too , nelsons dock yard , Shirley heights . I particularly enjoyed watching the reggae band "survivors" at the crows nest on Friday evenings .

The villa itself is well equipped and cooked at home a few times as well as a BBQ . Was handy to have a washing machine too , no complaints . Had a fab time and would hope to return next year ( travelled with my husband and 2 children )

Last but not least our best day was going out on captain reds sail boat red sails , we went snorkelling sailed the day away and red made us delicious food HIGHLY recommend !!!!!

A superb villa, fantastic location and a superb local agent.

  • 5 of 5

We have returned today having spent four weeks staying in this villa at Jolly Harbour. The whole experience has been truly excellent from start to finish. The villa itself is a lovely place to stay. It is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is light and airy, all the towels, appliances and furniture are of a very high standard. The location is excellent being a short walk to the magnificent beach and local facilities. The view from the terrace is delightful and a shady haven in the hot afternoon sun. The local representative, Jenny, could not be more helpful or discreetly attentive. Extremely professional and caring. Everything we wanted from her was done immediately. Taxis, pick ups and reception were excellent. There was nothing more she could have done to make our stay enjoyable. We could have asked for nothing more from our experience on this holiday and would highly recommend it to anyone. We have stayed in villas and apartments in many locations throughout the world and this holiday rates as one of the best we have ever had.

Lovely villa on a nice complex

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful, well maintained and very convenient for the beech which is only 2 minutes away. Jolly harbour is a nice gated complex with a super market, pharmacy, car hire, and many restaurants to choose from, though our favourite was Miracles which is just off the complex, an easy 5 minute walk from the main gate. Getting around Antigua from here is very easy, with a bus stop by the main gate, and a plentiful supply of buses to St Johns, from where you can get another bus to other parts of the island, a good way to see the island and interact with local people who where all friendly. Nelsons dockyard and Stingray city are well worth a visit, as are the many various beeches and also English harbour. We hired a golf cart to get around the complex, as the walk to to shops and restaurants on the complex is quite far and taxing in the heat. Overall we had a great stay with fantastic weather in our second week, as it rained every day in the first week!! Jenny kept in regular contact and was a mine of information on local and island events, and was checking to see if we had any issues with villa. She also arranged our taxi return to the airport. Randy and Mary are also a mine of information, and we hired our golf cart and arranged our trip to Stingray city through them. All in all, a nice relaxing holiday, and I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay in Jolly Harbour.
