About Phil Holland

We currently live in the UK, having spent a career mostly working and living overseas. We bought this property in 2008 to provide a vacation home for ourselves and our two daughters, and to provide an extended vacation home during my retirement.

Phil Holland purchased this villa in 2008

Why Phil Holland chose St. Mary

The property comprises 1600 square feet internally, a 300 square foot sun verandha overlooking the 10 times 5 metre pool, which is contained within a timber deck area.

With 1600 square feet of internal living area, the property is ideal for extended vacations. It is configured to enable two families of four to share identical bedrooms, ie, with two master bedrooms, both with kingsize beds, ensuites, and wardrobes, dressers. Similarly there are two identical twin rooms, which share a shower room. It is therefore ideal for two families of four to share a vacation.

The property is fully equipped to facilitate self catering, with Denby crockery, Diners cutlery, and Circulon pans. It has all the necessary facilities, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, plus other kitchen items such as blender, coffee maker, and more than adequate kitchen utensils to make self catering a pleasure, rather than a chore!

Of course, if self catering is not your thing, then you are a five minute walk from the 6 nearest restaurants.

The lounge is furnished to be comfortable, with a leather sofa set.

What makes this villa unique

The property is located on a short concrete surfaced road, off the main road entrance to Jolly Harbour and overlooks a freshwater lake, with breeding birds, and feeding pelicans. It is quiet, and removed from the hustle and bustle of Jolly Harbour, but is only a 5 minute walk away from the Jolly Harbour supermarket, restaurants etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely villa, clean, airy and nicely decorated. Faces east/west so gets the sun all day. Very well equipped, with thoughtful touches like coolboxes, chairs and li-los for use on the beach.



There is also free wi-fi so you can keep in touch with your non-holiday life if you need to.

It comfortably fits 8, although I had the luxury of being there with just one other person and there are plenty of dishware, towels etc to cope with a large party.

There is also an ipod dock.

There is a lovely seating/dining area outside and pretty solar lighting for the evening.

I would recommend a car (4X4 as Antiguan roads are badly potholed) as it's the easiest way to explore the island, although the very best beaches are close by.

The only reason it didn't get a 5 is that the pool is neither long or deep enough for a proper swim but that is not a drawback for everybody

A taxi from and to the airport is included in the price.

Family holiday over New Year

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spacious well appointed villa. We were a family group of 8 adults and found there was plenty of space, seating, kitchen equipment and outdoor furniture. Good sized swimming pool. Reasonably close, approx 10 minutes walk, to large supermarket, restaurants and a further 5 minutes walk on to the beautiful beach, ideal for swimming, sunbathing and partying at the local bar, Castaways. The management team were easy to get in touch with, approachable and charming. Would highly recommend this villa.

The owner was most helpful in answering various questions before we started the holiday. We rented cars for 4 days from Sunny Rentals who delivered them to the villa and were very efficient.

Great location, large comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday here over Christmas. Well equipped spacious villa, very comfortable beds, delightful outside sitting area. Lots of clean linen and mid week cleaning. Two beaches about 10 minutes walk and excellent supermarket about 5 minutes walk. Just outside jolly harbour marina and very peaceful location. The pool is only waist height but lovely to cool off. Highly recommended

Fantastic stay at milk and honey!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at this villa, came with my mother, friend and partner. The booking process was easy and owner Phil responded quickly and was extremely helpful. We were met at the airport and transfered to the villa, where we were shown around and given advise and useful information from the property manager. The villa itself is just as shown in the photo's , very spacious, clean with all amenities u would need. Supermarket and restaurants are literally 5 minutes away which was great and the beaches 10 minutes, would recommend castaways restaurant by jolly beach, or for a fine dining option definitely Carmichaels , which is at the sugar ridge resort, it sits on top of the hill and the view is wonderful!! particularly liked valley church beach and dickenson bay beach which has great beach bars n good music! Would advise renting a car which we did to get around the island , also recommend a trip to english harbour for the seafood Friday and Shirley heights for great band and wonderful sunset!! Pool at the villa, although quite shallow was still great for late afternoon cool down with a glass of wine!! ( or rum punch :) )

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it and hope to return ourselves in the near future... thanks again Phil for your wonderful property!! X

Pleasant Stay - With Home From Home Comforts.

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived we were met by our transfer Driver Glenford who took us to the villa (no waiting around which was nice). Crawford from villa Management was there to meet us and show us around the villa ;-)-(he's in maintenance but he needs a pay rise as his customer service skills are second to non very friendly happy and came to make sure we were having a good time a few times on the holiday(it was like we were at the hotel without all the hustle and bustle),& always happy to help!

The Villa was clean, plenty of towels, spacious and nice welcome pack with a few essentials for when you arrive, it was also relatively close to everything however I would highly recommend a golf cart/car as all the walking can get a bit much. This villa is just off of Jolly Harbour so you have to be very careful when coming across the main road, but after that your fine (if you have a cart as they are not really allowed off the complex.) The road directly outside the villa has been tarmac however it is very bumpy and a rocky terrain when you get to the top - we had my elderly grandmother with us who cant walk very far/well so if we hadn't have got a golf cart then we would of been stuck at the villa. - The only critism I would make is that the villa needs a little bit of TLC as there were a few cracked tiles inside and out which, the pool handle was loose, one of the fans outside did not work- nothing major!

Pool was nice - waist high only so DO NOT DIVE OR JUMP - or you'll do yourself an injury like my Husband don't worry it was just a graze lol.

directly opposite is the lake where you can see goats birds mongoose and even a cat!

if you get a chance head down to shells Fish and chips on the bus,there's a pizzas place for Lunch(3pm onwards)the local cuisine near Nemos pool - i think its called Westpoint?- i cant remember to much rum punch ;-) all the food reasonably priced and delicious!

A few things to be aware off - Akropolis Greek Resturant- shocking service and food was just as bad, and if your going down to castaways watch your bill as they kept trying to overcharge us for drinks, Friday nights are good live band and bombfire but book in advance.

we had a lovely cab man Sam for most trips- he's a good guy with good rates- we left cards in the villa- Shirlys height, island tour, nelson dockyard stingray city and much much more.

Cleaners were amazing and came 3-4 times whilst we were there and they do a top to toe job

overall a great holiday

Owner's Response: Emma, I will be sure to pass on your praise for Crawford, great that you found him so responsive. We were there shortly after your visit, and discovered that two of the outside fans were not working. Both have been replaced, so all three now work. We also replaced the old TV with a 32" Samsung Smart Flatscreen, and put in some new outdoor seating furniture. Pool handle also sorted!! Thanks for your feedback, always appreciated, and always acted on. Phil

Excellent Villa!

  • 5 of 5

So happy we decided on this villa for our family vacation of 6 people. Phil was wonderful to deal with, as was the management company that cares for the villa. The villa was spacious, clean and convenient to beach, bars and restaurants. The pool was wonderful for end of the day dip as well as hanging around on deck after day at the beach.

Fantastic, relaxing .... would definitely return

  • 5 of 5

Milk and Honey is the perfect place to stay, its very clean and you will everything you need, the bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, we ate in using the BBQ a couple of evenings which was lovely. Its well situated to walk to the supermarket, fantastic beach and plenty of bars/restaurants, all within a maximum 10-15 min walk. A great way to relax.
