About Elton and Jayne Ash
We grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada and currently live in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. We are adjusting to being empty-nesters as our 4 daughters are on their own now. We bought this property as we knew a number of people who lived here year round and felt confident in the safety and security of the island and resort. Antiguans are very friendly and kind-hearted. We eventually plan to spend our winters here and use Jolly Harbour as our base to cruise the Caribbean. We really enjoy the opportunity to share our little piece of paradise with you.
Elton and Jayne Ash purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Elton and Jayne Ash chose Jolly Harbour
We love Antigua and the friendly laid back lifestyle. Jolly Harbour is the only resort of its kind in the Caribbean where you can tie your boat right outside your patio. We also enjoy golf and can take advantage of the 18 hole championship course along with the terrific community atmosphere. Jolly Harbour has everything you need from a fully stocked grocery store to several restaurants and bars along with shops, banking facilities, an internet cafe and rental companies.
What makes this Villa unique
The North Beach is only 2 tenths of a mile away, a 5 minute walk from our villa. It is very quiet and secluded. If you want more action the South Beach has Castaways Beach Bar along with beach vendors. Our villa faces east so you can enjoy the morning sun with your coffee overlooking the marina from the patio, then enjoy the shade in the afternoon. Due to the orientation with the flow through breeze, we rarely use the AC, enjoying peaceful evenings and restful nights.

Property was excellent for our stay
It was such an easy process renting this place for our vacation. The location was quiet and everyone was so nice. Anything I needed was catered for. I definitely will rent this place if available the next time I return. Thank you

Antigua family vacation - Jolly Harbour
We had a fantastic time staying in Jolly Harbour at Elton's property. Elton was very friendly, accommodating and even took the time to phone us prior to our vacation. The home was clean and had absolutely everything we needed. We were even greeted with a welcome package that had some nice items to helps get us started (including wine :)) Our family was very comfortable. The patio had a beautiful view of the waterway and the other homes nearby. We found that we didn't require air conditioning downstairs as we were able to get a nice breeze with just the patio doors open and fan on. We stayed with our two children ages 10 and 5 and the second bedroom with twin beds was perfect!! Jolly Harbour is an ideal location to stay with many amenities at your finger-tips. We enjoyed South Beach and visited North Beach as well which we found to be much quieter (ideal for privacy seekers). We would most definitely book this property again and highly recommend it to anyone travelling as a couple or family! Thank you Elton!
We are very happy you enjoyed our villa and Antigua. We look forward to hosting you again.
Comfortable & Clean!
Wow! Very glad we booked this villa. Elton was very quick to call and chat about any questions we had prior to booking which is part of the reason we booked here. Plus all of the positive reviews. The villa is clean and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need if you are planning to cook meals. We found the bedrooms comfortable, linens crisp and clean. Beach towels were great, we used them everyday. There are two beach chairs in the front closet which we found after a couple of days and were perfect. We used the air conditioning in the bedrooms only at night but they also have ceiling fans in the two bedrooms as well. We were not in the villa during the day but when we returned, simply opened the doors, turned the fans on and beautiful breeze. I love the location of the villa. We weren't sure prior to booking if being on the "north finger" would be too far from the grocery store, restaurants and main beach but so glad we were there. Its less busy and much quieter. It's a 5 min walk to the North beach which is great for a morning swim and evening sunsets. We rented a golf cart the entire week and is a must if you are in the north finger (unless you've rented a car). Plenty of parking in front of the villa. Its too far to walk to the grocery store for sure but rental is easy. For fun, we did the Wadali catamaran day tour around the whole island. Very nice, the lunch on the island we stopped at was great and the snorkeling at a coral reef, just amazing. Of course, we went to Shirley Heights as recommended by Elton. We went Thursday night as opposed to Sunday (I hear Sunday is very very busy). The view, music and food was great. My husband and son also made it out on the Reef Riders boat rental along with snorkeling (two hours for $80 ea USD). We spent most of our time on Jolly beach during the day. We found a nice quiet spot at the end of the beach where there are a few trees for shade. No one was ever there. We walked down the beach, past the all inclusive resort and I was so thankful I was not there and had our own little "home" to go back to. So to summarize, so happy we booked this villa and will return for sure. Only next time for at least 2 weeks (or more!!). Thank you Elton and Jayne!! Love your piece of paradise.
Thank you very much for your booking. We are very happy you enjoyed your vacation and look forward to hosting you again.
We had a very enjoyable time.
The villa was clean and well-equipped. There were several good restaurants in Jolly Harbor to walk to and North Beach was a great local beach just a short stroll from the villa. Our favorite beach was Frey’s Beach, about a 10minute drive. The toughest part of the trip was the driving on the left side of the road, but we managed. Elton was kind enough to call us before we departed for Antigua and made sure to answer any questions we had.
We are glad you enjoyed your time and look forward to hosting you again.
Lovely space on the water in one of best areas on the island.
Very nicely appointed & comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you
We are very happy you enjoyed your time and look forward to hosting you again
