About Paul Ardagh

We first visited Jolly Harbour on a family holiday in 2004 and instantly fell in love with everything this unique place has to offer. Over the years, we have enjoyed very many fabulous holidays here and we are delighted to make the Villa available to rental guests.

Paul Ardagh purchased this villa in 2007

Why Paul Ardagh chose St. Mary

Jolly Harbour's unique mix of being a quiet, relaxed location yet with a wide range of facilities on hand, makes it ideal for an enjoyable holiday. It is also perfect for those wishing to explore the island of Antigua.

What makes this villa unique

We chose the Villa over others for it's south west facing aspect over the water inorder to benefit from sunshine from mid morning until sunset.

Spacious, well equipped, good location

  • 4 of 5

Our recent 10 day holiday staying in this apartment was fantastic. This is a well equipped and spacious villa in a great location. Good value too. Our friends joined us last minute and the two bedrooms both with en-suite was a bonus. The kitchen is fairly small but very well equipped with plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery and cooking utensils to cook on the large American style cooker. The main sitting area opens out to a large terrace with a wonderful view of the water way with a jetty. The master bedroom is very large with patio windows opening out to a private balcony, big enough for a couple of sun beds.

There is a very well stocked supermarket 10 minutes walk away selling Waitrose 'essentials' range which was most strange. The only downside was how expensive it was but we found this to be the case with most of Antigua. Not helped by the exchange rate.

Paul, the villa owner has been exceptionally helpful throughout. He happily answered the many questions we had and when we had a fault with the AC unit during our stay he communicated with HBK, the managing agents to get it fixed. HBK were helpful and friendly and its worth speaking with them if you have any problems or queries during your stay.

We didn't need the golf buggy, however, we like walking and we saw so much more of the bird and wild life during our walks. If you wanted to go to North Beach which is a bit quieter, you might need a buggy for that purpose. We found a very quiet area of South Beach right at the far end. A 15 minute slow stroll away. There were no facilities there but if you like a peaceful day then its worth a visit. The buggy would have been useful for shopping but as there were four of us we shared the load.

Trips. We hired a car for 2 days. Be careful who you go with. We were recommended Pineapple Rentals by a few people and were told to avoid Budget Rentals. This enabled us to do a complete tour of the island. Driving was easy despite the pot holes. Speed limit is slow and quite pleasurable. Left hand drive for us UK folks made it a dream.

Stingray City - a must do trip. Loved every minute of it. Catamaran snorkling trip (Mystic 2). The catamaran was great fun with an open bar, music and good food. We had a small group which made it fun and friendly. The snorkling off the reef is not for beginners. We would happily return to this villa again if we return to Antigua. Sue & Dave

Another Fantastic Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house with all you require, washing machine, iron, coffee machine. The location is very relaxing and quiet but close enough to bars and restaurants if that's your thing. I'd recommend renting the golf cart as it makes shopping easier. Communication from the owner, Paul, was good and he was very helpful.

I'd recommend this house to all. We look forward to staying again.

I have just returned from a two week holiday and I'm finding it hard to put into words how to describe this fantastic villa situated in the most wonderful location.

The villa is superbly equipped with all the amenities you could ever need with a beautiful outlook over the water at the rear and the use of the golf buggy which we found essential. Jolly Harbour in it's self is a beautiful location with many bars and restaurants set among the yachts and boardwalks all you need for a perfect holiday, so what are you waiting for get booked for a fantastic time in this outstanding villa in an outstanding location on the beautiful island of Antigua.

Perfect villa, perfect setting!

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at this villa. First and very importantly- the beds were all so comfortable. Very well equipped kitchen with a good size fridge-freezer, which had loads of ice packs usual for days out. Lots of adapter and mosi plugs, which came in very useful. Maintenance were very on the ball when we needed a light bulb changed we couldn't reach. The beach is just a stroll away, with the local supermarket- great for meat for the BBQ, not much further. We hired the buggy as although the supermarket isn't far, carrying it all back can be a trek! All in all a wonderful holiday made that much better by the standard of the villa.Would stay there again on our return visit to this beautiful island.

Lovely Villa in beatiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2-week stay in September 2015. The house has all necessary amenities with a great deck overlooking the water - our favourite hang-out.

Jolly Harbour provides the basis for a comfortable and leisurely stay, and has a well stocked supermarket, great restaurants and bars. The HBK villa office is ready to assist guests with any queries and is very service minded. The South Beach is wonderful with its' turqoise waters and white sand.

We rented the golf cart and found this to be very practical and recommendable.

We had a very a good and pleasant dialogue with the owners who also provided useful hints and suggestions to enhance our stay.

A lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for four weeks recently and had a great holiday. The house is comfortable and well-equipped, with enough kitchenware to make self-catering easy. it has a lovely deck over the water which we used all the time. We also rented the golf-buggy which was fun and a big help when shopping. The supermarket is very well-stocked. The beach is a few minutes stroll and is paradise. It can be a bit busy around Castaways bar if there are cruise ships in at St John's but wander off a couple of hundred metres and you will be all alone if that's what you like!

Would recommend this house to family and friends (in fact I already have) and would definitely stay in it again. Paul, the owner, is very helpful and efficient. He answers emails very quickly and sorts out any query immediately.
