Hamilton Estate is a private development near to Jolly Harbour, the premier marina, golf and leisure resort in the Caribbean, situated on the beautiful west coast of Antigua. Jolly Beach is just a 10 minutes walk away; a long sweep of soft white sand and turquoise sea fringed by palm trees, and the entrance to the marina is also just a 10 minutes walk away.

We are situated next to the new luxury Sugar Ridge boutique hotel which offers a spa, a gym, two restaurants and sophisticated nightly entertainment.

Each of our three villas stands in its own garden and has 3 en-suite bedrooms, expansive internal and external living areas, and a private swimming pool with sundeck.

Guests staying at one of our villas can choose to include one or more days of their holiday aboard our 50' sailing yacht. Further details can be found at the end of this page.

There are so many places to explore around the coast of Antigua that each day on board offers new sights and destinations.

About Howard and Cheryl Adams at Jolly Villas

We absolutely love Antigua. We came on a visit and hardly seem to have been away since. Antigua is the heart and soul of the Caribbean, an exotic tropical island with an abundance of palm-fringed beaches, warm sparkling seas, English-speaking and life-loving locals, a wealth of land and water based activities, a huge choice of delicious international cuisines, and a background soundtrack of calypso and reggae. No wonder we decided to make Antigua our second home.

Lovely family villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa was clean and spacious both inside and outdoors. We enjoyed having ensuite bathrooms for each bedroom. The pool was a decent size and essential for cooling off in the heat! Other reviews mention that the villa is close to the road and noisy, but I don't agree. It is close to the road but there is not a lot of traffic. We live in a quiet rural location and didn't find the villa's location unduly noisy at all. It is within walking distance of some gorgeous beaches, we visited Jolly beach and Valley Church bay. The local supermarket is a 10 minute walk and well stocked although expensive. We really enjoyed our holiday.

Beautiful villa in a good position

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay in Antigua. The villa is spacious and well designed to give a feeling of space and light. Sitting on the wrap-around veranda is a dream morning and evening sipping a cold beer or wine. The pool is warm and well looked after and is lovely to get into day or night. We walked to Jolly, Valley church & Ffryes beach from the villa without any difficulty. The supermarket is also near enough for a walk to and from. Good choice of restaurants nearby for your evening meals. Highly recommend with just 1 niggle; there is a restaurant over the road that did have loud music once or twice during our stay of 10 days into the early hours, something to bear in mind if you have young children.

Excellent villa

  • 4 of 5

Had a fab stay in this lovely holiday villa. Everything as described. The three double en suite bedrooms are a real bonus. Wonderful outside space where we spent most of our time. Supermarket in Jolly Harbour close by ( you can walk to it) and has everything you need, although it is expensive. We had a lovely meal in the Greek restaurant in Jolly Harbour and the little Italian does good take away pizza. The only negatives are the road noise affects the main bedroom, and oddly the noise continued most of the night. Also you will need to plan what you will do on the last day if you have to vacate the villa at 10.00 am and your flight home is not until the evening. We did Stingray city which was great fun and had a lovely day around English Harbour. Be warned the roads are not good if you hire a car and local driving practices somewhat interesting. Lovely beaches, including great ones close to the villa but they do get busy when the cruise ship parties arrive - after 4 pm you have them to yourself. Overall we had a great holiday, would highly recommend this villa but we did find some things very expensive in Antigua e.g £35 for a small bottle of suntan lotion.

2 weeks in July with family

  • 4 of 5

There are a many good points about this property such as cleanliness , size , facility, air con but a few thing bugged me . Specifically :

Ffryes House is the same price as Bay House , but the latter is right next to the road.

The sun was up before 6 AM and the curtains didn't keep out much light.

From google maps, it appears a development open up across the road , so for 3 nights we we disturbed until well beyond midnight from said development

The pool looks a lot better maintained in the picture than the one we found, but it was adequate and very welcome. Certainly I wouldn't dive into it as it was only 4 feet-ish deep in the middle.

Very handy for the best beaches on the island though ie Ffryes for example and the supermarket

I hope this helps

Owner's Response: I am glad that your stay at Bay House was enjoyable overall but I am sorry to hear you were disturbed on a few occasions at night. I assume you are referring to the West Coast Dining Experience which is the collection of restaurants over the road from Hamilton Estate. Generally we have found this to be a quiet venue as it's main function is serving food, and very convenient for our guests. I can only assume that with the run up to Antigua Carnival in full swing then some additional partying was taking place. Once again, thank you for choosing Bay House for your stay.

Perfect holiday destination

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here in April. We were greeted at the villa by Jenny who was very helpful throughout the week; arranging days out, advising us with restaurants and good beaches etc. We didn't hire a car but used local taxis and they were all very reliable and friendly.

The villa itself is lovely; spacious, spotlessly clean, great pool, large well equipped kitchen and good value.

We had some delicious meals out; would recommend Sheer Rocks as the best lunch (Tapas) we had on the Island, also Jacqui O's and Dennis' Place. All the beaches were stunning.

Two slight negatives; the villa is on a fairly busy road which was noticed most in the early evenings when sitting out by the pool. Also, we thought the beaches were much closer (they are in fact close but you have to walk along the road for 10/15 minutes before finding a track to the beach).

Would recommend Antigua; it is a lovely quiet and friendly Island and we would stay at Bay House again.

Amazing stay at the Bay House in Antigua!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I traveled to Antigua for our Spring Break, and our stay was everything we could have asked for, and the Bay House was a huge reason for that!

First of all, it was great to have an entire villa to ourselves. We had 6 in our group and the size was perfect for us. We often spent our time outside on the deck/pool areas (definitely take advantage, especially after the beach). The deck was a perfect place to hang out at night after dinner and the lights created a nice atmosphere.

As for the inside of the villa, it is pretty accurately depicted in the pictures. The living room is spacious and you can leave all of the doors open for fresh air throughout the house. The kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cook and the washing machine is convenient. The owners provide you with plenty of bath/pool towels, a phone to communicate with the villa rep and taxi drivers, and general recommendations for things to do.

In terms of location, I found it to be perfect. Right across the street, there are a lot of restaurants with amazing food (I recommend Island Pizza and the wings at Fort Smoke K's). We went during an off-season, so it wasn't very busy at the time but during the summer may get more popular.

As for beaches, be prepared to walk quite a bit if you aren't renting a car and remember to bring a lot of water. Our favorite beach was Ffryes beach, which was about a 20-25 minute walk. Definitely worth the travel if you don't want crowds. The grocery store is also in this direction (we went there often to buy snacks, water, food to cook, beer, etc.). Jolly Beach was closer and a decent beach, but would fill up when cruise lines would stop for the day.

Some issues that we had with the property were that the water stopped working at one point and the lock to the main gate broke. However, Howard came himself and fixed it right up. Him and Jenny (the villa rep )were incredibly responsive to our problems and made sure we were as comfortable as possible. That being said, the Wifi was not very good, but you are on Antigua and shouldn't need to use the internet besides for researching things to do on the island.

Overall, this was an unbelievable vacation and the Bay House Villa is a great accommodation. Definitely recommend, so don't hesitate to book!
