About Doreen Whitehead

We are an English couple with two grown up sons with family of their own. I still work part time and my husband is retired. Hopefully I will also retire soon.

Doreen Whitehead purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Doreen Whitehead chose Jolly Harbour

We bought our place in Antigua following a caribbean cruise when we fell in love with the country and the friendly people. It is steeped in English history dating back to Nelson, must see Nelsons Dockyard. Jolly Harbour is the premier region of Antigua famous for its beautiful white sandy beaches of which there are many in the immediate area. It is situated on the South West of the island on the caribbean sea, white sandy beaches and beautiful turquoise seas.

Driving is easy on the island should you decide to hire a car as they drive on the same side of the road as England and as the island is only 14 miles x 11 miles if you get lost it doesn't matter because you will eventually reach your destination. Once there you will love it as much as we do. A relaxing, chill out style holiday awaits you.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is on an exclusive development, 4 apartments and 3 villas, literally across the road from Jolly Harbour. The four apartments share a large 28 x 15ft pool with an extensive sundeck for the sun lovers and a canopied shaded area for those who prefer shade. Plenty of loungers round the pool which is set in half an acre of landscaped gardens.

Fully furnished to a very high standard the apartment includes just about everything you have back home. Towels (inc beach), linen, cutlery, pots and pans. We also have a weekly maid service, full air conditioning in all living areas and kitchen in addition to ceiling fans. The apartment has free access to 4G Wi-Fi (Digicel) so that you can keep in touch with family or business back home and just because we like to look after our guests we also pick you up and drop you off at the aiport. So sit back, relax and enjoy. Ahh - paradise.

Relaxed and family friendly.

  • 4 of 5

The location is an ideal hide away and close to the beach, restaurants / bars, boat tours, grocery and souvenir shops.The fenced yard is well-groomed and provided a contained play area for the kids. Also being mindful of the pool that is on the property. What stands out are: pick-up/drop off transportation from the airport, given use of a cell phone, beach chairs and a well equipped kitchen. Not having a house keeper at anytime during our stay was less favorable. Fun times included the lobster lunch boat ride by Creole Cruises and Castaways restaurant. I encourage getting a car rental to get to more places and sceneries because public transportation is limited and not desirable. I would stay here again.

Well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Antigua. We went for a friend's wedding which was held at the sugar ridge resort adjacent to Hamilton House. The apartment was great for us, a family of 5 with children ranging between 13 and 6. There is everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The agent, Yasmin and the maintenance man, Don, were very helpful and ready to deal with any problems. Location is fairly good. Opposite are a couple of restaurants that do pizza and fish and chips and down the road is a restaurant called Miracles which I highly recommend (best curry goat I've ever had!). The beach and supermarket are about a 15 minute walk away. The main road can feel a little dangerous at times because there is no pavement and some drivers speed past! I felt more conscious of this because of the children, so sometimes we would jump on the bus which was very reasonably priced. The grounds are well looked after. Pool was cleaned once a week whilst we were there and the gardener came once a weeks also. We had the whole complex to ourselves for the first week,which was nice, then one of the other apartments was occupied. We got on well with the other guests and sharing the pool with them at times was not a problem. However if all the apartments are occupied, I think the pool area would be a bit crowded. This wasn't at all a problem for us as we are beach people. Overall Antigua is an amazingly stunning island with so much to see and do and the people are very friendly. Hamilton house proved to be ideal for us and we recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We have found, like you, that people tend to dip in and out of the pool at various times as most people are out and about during the day, usually at the beach. There are sufficient loungers for all occupants as we have some in storage that are brought out when all the apartments are occupied. Antigua is a beautiful island and you are correct they are really friendly. Thank you again and hope you will remember us if you return to Antigua.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Hamilton House. We are a family of 5 with three children aged 13, 10 and 3. The apartment was fantastic, nicely furnished, clean with plenty of space for us. It had direct access from the veranda to the pool that is shared with the other 3 apartments in the block. In our opinion, this apartment had the best location of the four in the block. Also, Yasmin and Dan the local staff were a great help when we were there. We would certainly recommend the apartment to our friends and family. It was 11 years since our last time in Antigua and we had forgotten just how beautiful the Antiguan beaches were. We especially loved the local Valley Church beach, only a short 10 minute walk - one of the best.

Brilliant again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here for Easter 2014 . This is our return visit to the same apartment, which is fab and would recommend this to others. Management company great. Jasmine on call and Don helpful to provide us with local info and fish / fruit. Our son has special needs and staff were very understanding if this. We had a great time. We went on the zip wires (with Connie), half moon bay and Barbuda for a day, which was great. The place is fab and this will not be our last visit here.

Ashby de la Zouch


  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this villa. It was really good. It was very clean, well equipped and in a quiet location. Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves and it was quiet. It is safe and set back from the road for small children and the grounds are very well tended. Across the road was a great pizza place and an old red bus which was a fish and chip restaurant. They were very flexible and even allowed us to order pizza for me and my husband and fish and chips for our son. The supermarket is very close and handy and the local beach bar was great. We travelled around did the zip wires, half moon bay, long bay, a trip on the reef, which can be organised from Jolleys beach next to the beach bar and we also went to Montserrat, which was amazing. The caretakers for the villa also were really helpful. Don got us some great fresh fish and mangoes. He was a great guy. Jasmine was always available. Be prepared for the poorly tended roads on the island, but you do get used to them quite quickly. We had a great time. Thank you Doreen and Neil. We would love to stay again in the future.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Snorkelling and scuba diving is available all over the island either off shore or on boat excursions. There is also a zip wire tour through the rainforest canopy for those a little more adventurous. A not to be missed excursion is to Sting Ray City where you are ferried out to a sandbank to swim with the sting rays. (water depth is approx. adult waist height)


There are 5 local beaches all within walking distance and one has been voted one the worlds best beaches. Antigua is renowned for its 365 beaches, one for each day of the year and Hamilton House is on the Caribbean Sea side of Antigua affording you the best beaches for your holiday. Sugar Ridge Hotel and holiday complex is adjacent to Hamilton House and offers more facilities including shops, restaurants, Health Club. Holiday membership is available at very reasonable rates. Eating at their two restaurants does not require membership.


VC Bird International, near St Johns, 20 minutes drive. Return transfers to and from the airport are included in the price. However, if you prefer to hire a car we can recommend a firm that offers very reasonable rates. We do recommend you hire a car so that you can get out and about easily to see the island and stock up on your groceries.


15-20 minutes to the capital, St Johns by car. Nearest beach is within walking distance and was recently voted one of the top ten beaches in the world. Jolly Harbour Marina, Commercial Centre and Resort is also within walking distance. Boat trips, island trips, safari, rain forest canopy adventure, diving, snorkeling, pirate ship excursion and more can all be booked at Jolly Harbour. The entrance to Jolly Harbour Marina and resort is just a few minutes walk from the apartment. This extensive complex offers the largest and finest marina in the Caribbean and superb recreation facilities. A fine 18-hole golf course and a sports centre with swimming pool, tennis courts, and a squash court, cater for the actively minded, whilst the commercial centre has a wide range of shops, restaurants, bars, and a new, modern supermarket to sustain the needs for everyday living. For all it's many amenities, Jolly Harbour remains a sophisticated and tranquil setting to while away the holiday hours. Jolly Harbour in the evening provides entertainment, bars and restaurants. Within the resort there is a local bank, pharmacy (with English newspapers), art shop and internet cafe.

Further Details:

Our agent, will meet and greet you on your arrival at the apartment. If you want details of, or to book an excursion, she can do this for you and is available at the end of a telephone should you need any help or advice. There is a telephone in the apartment for your use (pay as you go mobile - top ups at Jolly Harbour). Antigua, like the rest of the Caribbean is cricket mad. The season runs from February to July and the island boasts a brand new ground, the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. The old ground, (The Recreation Ground) is in the centre of the capital, St Johns and both are well worth a visit. The island is quite small, only being 14 miles by 11 miles but it also has a third cricket ground called the Sticky Wicket situated within the airport complex. You will see this when you arrive at the airport. Sticky Wicket has a fine restaurant and bar. On your return home you can check your bags in at the departure desk and walk over to the Sticky Wicket to wait for your plane.
