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 Jolly Harbour

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.

The perfect holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in this villa in Jolly harbour, the whole process from booking to sadly returning home could not have been easier or more enjoyable. Tessa and Jenny were an absolute pleasure to deal with and were helpful above and beyond what you would expect. The villa really is in a prime location in Jolly harbour and has everything you could wish for to make for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The kitchen facilities, quality of furnishings, comfort of beds and information provided to make the best of your stay were all five star. We would not hesitate to recommend a stay here and will be booking our next stay very soon.

Comfortable, well equipped, everything worked, clean, felt at home, well positioned, well run

  • 5 of 5

We did not know quite what to expect - but it exceeded on every count - highly recommended. Tessa and John were in touch before we arrived to check arrival arrangements. They were there when we arrived to show us round, offer local advice, arrange a golf cart (better to think about this before you arrive, they were in short supply) and they drove us to the well stocked Epicurean Grocery in Jolly Harbour on our first morning. When they left Jenny was on hand to answer any queries quickly and efficiently. We were only two people but with one loo, shower, sink upstairs and a cloakroom downstairs it is suitable for four - we found it spacious for us. The property is cleaned once a week with a change of linen - but as it is tiled throughout and has spare linen plus a good washing machine we found this fine. We wanted to swim in the sea a lot and the beach is 2 mins walk away - there is also a pool and golf and tennis if that’s wanted. We found everyone friendly - Mary’s Taxi, her husband Randy who organises Golf Carts and tours, the local buses and our neighbours. We have visited Jolly Harbour over many years and the restaurants have improved - like the rest of the Caribbean they are London prices. But with a full cooker, a microwave and a gas barbecue it was no hardship to eat in as well. We had a great time.

Big thank you to John and Tessa for making our recent holiday so enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Had another wonderful holiday at Jolly Harbour. This was our first stay in John and Tessa’s marvellous 2 bed villa ..we will definitely be booking again for next year! The villa is superb in every aspect, it was modern, clean and had everything a family of four would need. Located on the harbour, a perfect beach literally a 2min walk away with Castaways beach bar to eat in and enjoy happy hour watching the sun go down. Bliss. There’s also an excellent supermarket only 5 minute walk (or 2 mins using John’s bicycle) which stocks lots of Waitrose food. The harbour area also has a good choice of restaurants.

Convenient Reprieve!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two adults and two small children under the age of two) found this property to be a wonderful fit for a holiday reprieve to the Caribbean. The location of the villa was fantastically secure and close to a grocery store and other shopping amenities as well as the beach. We spent little time at Jolly Harbour beach which was a bit too crowded and rough (shells and coral) for our taste (the kids!), but we were a quick drive from numerous other secluded beaches that were "family friendly". Tessa was extremely responsive and accommodating as was her local contact on the island. The property itself is simple but provides all the necessities for an inviting stay and was very clean. We will be back!

The Villa was in a lovely location a short walk from the beach and Castaways bar

  • 5 of 5

The Villa had everything we needed for 3 adults and the Jolly Harbour area has plenty of restaurants to cater for all tastes. You can explore the island from here quite easily by car and visit the lovely beaches scattered around the island but it is difficult to beat the beach at Jolly Harbour to watch the sunset. Shirley Heights is well worth a visit on a Sunday evening but don't have too many Dark and Stormies. Thanks to Tessa for a lovely holiday.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Location in Jolly Harbour was perfect. The beach is a 2 minute walk. It's beautiful with restaurant and water sports available. Also the sunsets on the beach are amazing. The villa is very well equipped, with all towels, utensils, bedding, a welcome basket...everything to make your stay easier. Very clean and lovely views from the balcony. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to family and friends. Jenny was extremely helpful with any informarion we needed. Thanks Tessa and Jenny for making our week wonderful.

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!!!
