2 bed villa, completely renovated in 2019, on the preferred South Finger
About Bill Montgomery
Monica and I have both enjoyed traveling to many different destinations around the world. Through our travels we have seen many different lifestyles and cultures that we enjoy, but at the end of the day we enjoy the relaxation that comes from the Caribbean. We have spent some time around the islands and really enjoy Antigua and its culture, its beautiful beaches and wonderful local cuisine. And who can't forget about Carnival and all of the regattas. Monica and I live in Phoenix Arizona where our children were raised and are currently in pursuit of higher education. We continue to enjoy traveling to many destinations around the world but enjoy the beautiful island of Antigua.
Bill Montgomery purchased this Villa in 2018
Why Bill Montgomery 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. THIS BEACH IN OUR OPINION IS ONE OF THE BEST BEACHES IN THE WORLD ( AND WE HAVE TRAVELLED!!)

Really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend / great value for the price. The place needs some renovation but location could not be better, walk to store, restaurants and truly only 3 min to great beach (go far right and stay under trees). We loved sitting on the porch and conversing with great neighbors and watching the yachts go in and out. Folks you can not do better for the money. Brian thanks and also thanks to Jenny who is a gem.
Thank you David. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our villa. We appreciate your input on our villa and anticipate some renovation in the near future.
We hope to see you back again sometime soon.

Our second year in 229F - and another wonderful holiday.
The villa is perfect for us - location is close to beach for all important morning swim - view of marina - not far from supermarket - lots of restaurants - and, when staying in, a well equipped kitchen plus a gas BBQ on the terrace. All the appliances worked and we relaxed and felt comfortable. Also, most important, the manager Jenny, was efficient and friendly fixing everything we could need from a golf cart for buzzing round the marina to a good dentist! Sadly she also booked the taxi to the airport on the last day - but we have been telling everyone what a great time we had.
Anne and Arthur,
We are so glad that you enjoyed your time in our place. Thank you for the kind words about our manager, Jenny. She is always there for our guest.
We hope you come back to the island again soon.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our Villa. We hope to see you on your future visits to the island.
Beautiful villa right next to the Harbour with everything you need for a great stay!
This Jolly Harbour villa is fantastic! A small but comfortable spot with all the amenities you need for a great stay. All the rooms have A/C which was incredibly enjoyable when you want to escape the heat and rest for a while.The back patio is nestled into the Harbour, and is great for lounging and enjoying the view of the water and mountains in the background. The location is perfect; it’s a 3 minute walk to Castaways, a beautiful beach with an outdoor bar and restaurant. It’s a wonderful spot to explore on your first day through your last. The local supermarket is a 10 minute walk away, which has everything you could want, from food and drinks to soap and toothpaste. It really helps if you forget to bring something! I could not recommend this villa enough, it made my experience that much better. Thank you Bill Montgomery for having us and always making sure we had everything we need! Truly, if you are considering staying here, do it!!
We are glad you and your guest enjoyed your stay with us on the island.
Great place to stay in Antigua!
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Villa 229F in Jolly Harbour. Upon our arrival we met Jenny who was fantastic. She showed us around the villa and informed us about what the area has to offer. She wanted us to have an enjoyable stay and offered to help us in any way she could. There was even a phone provided to keep in contact with her if there were any queries.
We liked the open floor plan of the villa and its full kitchen amenities. It was comfortable, clean and fully air conditioned. Also enjoyed the beautiful view from both upper and lower balconies
overlooking the water, watching the boats sail by and looking at the mountains in the
background outlining the sleeping Indian.
The villa is just a short walk to the beautiful white sandy beach with turquoise waters and watersport activities. There is also a grocery store called Epicurean that is close by, as well as,
numerous restaurants, shops and tourist attractions.
Overall, we had a great stay and we were very happy!
Thank you, Bill and Jenny, for a great experience! We would definitely recommend and stay here again…
Great apartment in an ideal location!
We spent 10 days in Jolly Harbour and found it to be the best location on the island!
When we arrived we were met by Jenny who showed us around the apartment and told us everything we needed to know about Jolly & Antigua. The apartment was very clean and well kept and came equipped with everything we needed including beach coolers to take lunch/drinks down to the beach.
The balcony was fantastic for morning sunshine whilst eating breakfast and hanging out in the evenings playing cards and the BBQ was used almost everyday!
We had family also staying on the island over in English Harbour and spent our time half and half but I have to say you cant beat Jolly Beach! Absolutely beautiful, we were there at the start of "off season" and so the beach was also peaceful and not too busy.
We had the best time in Antigua and I know will be back there one day soon and wouldn't hesitate to stay in Jolly Harbour again and this apartment!
Thank you for your review of our Villa 229F. We are glad you had a wonderful time in Antigua and were able to experience all that the island has to offer. We hope to see you back again some day.
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!!!
