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.

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.

Excellent stay, beautiful villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful weeks stay. The villa is perfectly located within jolly harbour, with easy access to the supermarket and bars/restaurants.

The villa is beautifully decorated throughout, and is spotlessly clean. There is everything you could ask for provided.

The view from the balconies is lovely, the sun is on the balcony from first thing until around lunch time which is perfect for early morning sunbathing.

We could not fault the villa or the communication we had from the owners.

We hope we can return again soon.

Fantastic holiday spot and villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic 2 week stay at this very well furnished villa overlooking the water and hills, which was spotlessly clean. We loved the fact that it was only 5 minutes away from restaurants, bars, sports facilities, dive shop and the beach, set in a lovely quiet and safe location in the Jolly Harbour marina.

It was so nice to start the day with a lazy breakfast on the balcony, then go for a game of tennis at the nearby club or perhaps swim or run along one of the best beaches we’ve ever seen. The Antiguans were all so friendly that we felt like locals after just a couple of days, drinking rum punches with them at the beach bars, watching the sun set.

Great to have a supermarket about a 10 minute walk away which stocked everything you could want, with a lot of things similar to the products you’d find in a Waitrose in the UK, with lovely meat we enjoyed cooking on the BBQ. The villa was fully air conditioned, but also benefited from a lovely breeze, so in the evenings we’d sit down with some drinks, watch boats, play cards and unwind.

You could hire golf buggies for around $20 a day, but we didn’t bother as it was fun to get the local bus and strike up a conversation with the locals and visitors. On a couple of occasions we cheekily flagged down a golf buggy after a few drinks and got a lift to nearby restaurants.

Owners John and Tessa gave us lots of great tips for things to see and do, so don’t miss the opportunity to visit Shirley Heights and dance the night away or eat the best spare ribs we’ve ever had at Dennis’ beach bar.

This was our first trip to Antigua, but it won’t be our last, so thanks for helping to make this such a memorable holiday.

From the Owner

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. THIS BEACH IN OUR OPINION IS ONE OF THE BEST BEACHES IN THE WORLD ( AND WE HAVE TRAVELLED!!)

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : St John's at 9 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Castaways at 250 Metres Nearest Golf : Jolly Harbour at 500 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Melini's, Il Porto plus many more at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Jolly Beach at 250 Metres Car: not necessary

Antigua has 365 beaches, one for each day of the year, all of which are open to the public all year round. The unspoilt island of Barbuda can be visited via the Barbuda Express ferry for a day visit or there are sailing trips available if you want to stay for a few days. If you want to capture the amazing scenery of the whole island and surrounding areas then a helicopter tour is a must, you will see just about all of Antigua's coastline and you could also fly over Montserrat and get a closer look at an active volcano!! You could also take advantage of one of the many catamaran tours, Wadadli Cats or Treasure Island Cruises, to see the island from the sea and snorkel in crystal clear waters. Deep sea diving is available, with Jolly Dive,they go out daily to dive at Cades Reef and other location including wrecks.From Jolly Harbour Marina there are also deep sea fishing trips, not to be missed, especially recommended is a fishing trip with "Mystic Amara". There are many places of interest to visit in Antigua including Nelson's Dockyard, English Harbour and Shirley Heights where on a Sunday afternoon there is a BBQ with a live Steel Band playing until sunset when a local reggae band takes over, not to be missed!! St John's is around a 10 minute drive from Jolly Harbour where there is a good duty free shopping area. Tours are also available by land - Island Safari takes you through Antigua's rain forest and you will take in amazing views of the island and the sea. You can also do the zip lines through the rain forest and get a spectacular view from the tree tops. However if all you want from your holiday is sun, sea and relaxation then you have to go no farther than a two minute walk to, what we believe, is the most beautiful beach on the island, right on your doorstep!!!
