About Mark and Teresa Ayre
We are Mark and Teresa Ayre from the UK. Our villa is primarily our own holiday home, comfortably furnished and equipped for our family's needs. The property is regularly maintained and most recently the first floor has been fully renovated to reflect both our needs as a family and for the comfort of our guests. Both bedrooms now have beautifully tiled, modern, ensuite shower rooms and and the entire flooring has been replaced with matching Italian tiling. Over the last two years we have installed a beautiful ceramic tiled deck and have invested in up to date air conditioning throughout the villa. New sofas and deck furniture were added last year. Ever aware of our guests needs, we have recently had our own WiFi connection installed, so guests will no longer have to rely on the hotspot that has previously covered most of the rental villas. Unlimited WiFi is free to all guests subject to technical availability. Due to work/family commitments we are only able to visit the island two or three times a year, so we have decided to offer the villa for holiday rental so that others can enjoy Antigua at a reasonable cost.
Mark and Teresa Ayre purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Mark and Teresa Ayre chose Jolly Harbour
Our villa is ideally situated for a relaxing holiday. Close to both the beach and shopping centre it is simple to pop back and forth throughout the day, allowing you to split your days between sea , shopping and siesta with ease. Jolly Harbour is a great base to allow you to explore the rest of the island, although with one of the best beaches in Antigua on your doorstep, many guests do not venture far! We take pride in offering a good service to our guests and communicate regularly with you in the run up to your holiday. The combination of fully involved owners and the professionalism of the HomeAway /Expedia holiday platform, offers our guests the best of both worlds. A personalised holiday experience with the security of booking through an internationally known organisation. As we live in the UK it is really important to have a trusted Antiguan management company available to you throughout your stay in the Island. James Richards, his wife Roxann and their team of Housekeeping and Maintenance staff have been looking after our guests for well over ten years.

Great vacation. Great villa!
We had a wonderful time staying at Jolly Harbour!. The villa was everything we had hoped for. Such a short walk to one of the best beaches we have been to. Long white sand beach and crystal clear water. The villa was perfect for two couples and had everything we needed and wanted. Short walk to the grocery store and several restaurants. And we were able to walk to other beautiful beaches . Check in and out were very easy and the villa was cleaned during our stay. Owners were very easy to deal with and very helpful. We will recommend this villa to all our friends and hope to return one day.
Had a Fab time
Thank you for letting us stay in your villa, we had the best time. The check in process was simple and the villa was nice and clean when we got there. Sitting in a great location, its only a few minutes walk to the beach and the nearest bar, which became a regular haunt for us. Unfortunately, due to the time of year we went, not all the restaurants were open during our stay, but there were still some good choices for us, the good thing about going this time of year is that the beach was nearly always empty.
Mark and Teresa were great with responding to any queries we had before we went, and upon arrival everything was as it should be, which is always a big relief. We stayed in to eat on a couple of nights, getting food from the local supermarket, we kept things simple so as not to require too many pots, but it would have been nice to have a BBQ at some point ( although we completely understand why the owners choose not to have one)
The villa was actually cleaned 4 times in the 2 weeks we were there, which was a surprise but appreciated, so you must thank HBK for that.
All in all, we had a fab time and would definitely recommend the villa to anyone wanting to stay in Jolly Harbour.

Another wonderful stay
Just returned from another wonderful stay at Villa 227C Jolly Harbour.
From the moment we arrived at this modern, well equipped villa, we knew we were in for a relaxing break.
Our pre ordered buggy was waiting in the driveway, and after a quick trip to the supermarket we were sitting at the bar of Castaways Beach Bar and Rum Shack in time for Happy Hour watching the beautiful sunset.
We didn’t travel far this time, and with the beach only a few steps from our front door, and free sun beds and parasols supplied for early birds like us, the only decisions to be made each day was where to go for supper!
Although this was a mid season break, there was still so much choice. Live music and 2 for 1 pizza nights at Al Porto, authentic Italian food and entertainment at Basilico, a huge choice of wonderful food ( and a fab Gin Menu) at Melinis, and Reggae and Thursday night burgers at the Crows Nest. But our absolute favourite was Castaways Monday Curry Nights and Friday night wings and beach party!
Although we spent very little time in the villa, a special mention should be made about the wonderful en-suite shower rooms, well equipped kitchen, furnished deck and dedicated WiFi.
We can’t wait to go back!
Lovely villa, beautiful bathrooms, lovely view
Had a very relaxing time, lovely situation so close to the beach and restaurants.
I am so glad that you had a wonderful stay in our villa. Good luck on your travels!
A huge thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home again. The new bathrooms and deck are fantastic and Teresa has been the perfect host, really responsive and helpful.
The staff at HBK were cheerful and very helpful, also Mervyn on the beach is a great guy!
We had a golf cart for our whole holiday which was really useful for getting to restaurants and looking around the beaches on the north finger, far less accessible than when we last came in 2014. We went up the small headland/ hill on the right of the bay on the cart, the views from there were spectacular and there are some amazing villas!
We ate at most of the restaurants and at Miracles just off the complex. All the food was good and we enjoyed the Indian at Castaways. We had a car for the day and got lost. . . .just like the previous time!!
We went on the circumnavigation of the island with Wadadali, which was a fantastic day out . The crew really looked after everyone , food and drink were in constant supply. We snorkel led on the reef and saw dolphins. We managed to get a good deal from a guy on the beach so it's definitely worth being cheeky!!
In our opinion Jolly beach is the best beach on the island. It's lovely to walk in both directions but the best thing is the amazing colour of the water and the views of Montserrat. We have been to many places but we have never found anywhere, that for us, betters this.
Many thanks to our hosts for allowing us to stay again. We will be back!!😎�
I am so glad that you had a lovely time.
It is really helpful to offer advice regarding the use of a buggy as first time guests often do not realise how ‘separate’ the more residential, north side of the community is. We feel very fortunate to own a property so close to the beautiful South Beach.
We look forward to hearing from you again.
