About Judith Josiah-Martin

This home was built by our parents as a retirement property and over the years we have entertained many friends and family who came to share the warmth and beauty of this property. For many persons, this home has been a peaceful retreat and a home away from home. Most of our family lives on the east coast of the US but occasionally we return to this island oasis for rest and relaxation.

Judith Josiah-Martin purchased this house in 2002

Why Judith Josiah-Martin chose Saint Mary

This home was built on land that has been in our family for generations. It is located on the southern part of the island which is characteristically green and lush and home to several pristine beaches. Nearby facilities offer snorkeling and shopping.

What makes this house unique

This home offers ocean views all around, the opportunity to fall asleep to the lullaby of the waves, stunning sunsets, air conditioned rooms, attentive owners and excellent service.

Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Villa Olivette was a perfect little villa to rent in Old Road Antigua. It’s up a rocky off the beat old road and sits in a peninsula overlooking the hills, cliffs and sea. Eating breakfast daily on the veranda looking at the wildlife with the warm sea breeze in your hair keeping you cool was perfection. The villa is well equipped and beautifully looked after by Leonard and his team. It was immaculate and comfortable with simple furnishings and decor and many extras were provided that were not expected in a self catering villa, such a toilet roll and some washing powder, squeeze etc. The villa is very pleasant, but it’s the location that really sells it. Old Road itself is like much of the rest of Antigua, old, simple, shabby and charming. The locals were very friendly as we either walked or drove past them daily; everyone waves hello no matter their age. However, the villa is totally private and sits in beautifully tended gardens with stunning flowering bushes and the turquoise sea beckoning. Leonard could not have been a more accommodating manager; he even rescued us one evening when our car broke down which was well and above his requirement to do so. Judith the owner, equally lovely to talk to, has chosen th right person to look after her special home. We highly recommend this villa for anyone wishing to holiday in Antigua.

Beautiful house. Stayed for 12 days and wish we had 12 more. From the meeting@ the airport to the final day,Leonard was there if we needed him. I would recommend this house to anyone. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Leigh and Kathleen.

Accommodations were very nice. We stayed for several weeks and the place felt like Home. Any thing we needed or had questions about were handled promptly by the on island manager, Lenard.

I hope we can return some day

Fantastic Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this home to say the least! Only issue was the driveway into the property. Very rough and steep, but, once you get to the house you tend to forget about that driveway. Home is very comfortable. We enjoyed the pelicans diving for dinner most afternoons. This is truly a diamond in the rough! Yes, a car is needed here! We were a 15 min drive to Jolly Harbour for restaurants, 7 miles. Price paid for this one was on the low side. It is well worth more for sure!! Thanks so much to Tracy who met us at the airport and Lenard, the property manager, was available anytime and was very friendly and helpful.

This home, due to it's location, would be perfect for guests that stay home at night and make their dinner in. I did not care for the night time driving.

The little beach that is there is too rough to go swimming, but, has treasures to find on it. Like sea glass and shells.

All of the other reviews have said it all. Nothing negative to report here, just a great home to rent and enjoy!!!!

Thank You to Judith for allowing us to stay here!

Sweet Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying three nights at Olivette. It was lovely! Very well kept! It is very secluded with an amazing view! It has a well-furnished kitchen and the caretakers even had fresh fruit awaiting us. They arranged a car to be delivered to the house as well. The home is very comfortable and lovely. Nice two bedroom two baths. Air conditioning worked well and great wifi! A car is a must as nothing is within walking distance here. But we navigated the potholes pretty well and enjoyed our stay! Thank you to everyone who helped make our stay amazing!

Car: recommended

This property is a solo property (not a resort type property, so there are no services onsite) but we are in the tourism belt of Antigua where there are many attractions and services within a 10-15 minute drive.

Due to the close proximity to Jolly Harbor most service (ATM/Bank, Shopping, Groceries, Car Rentals, Posts, Pharmacy, Fitness Center, Golf, Restaurants, Boat Rentals, Marina, Sailing etc.) can be acquired there.

Day passes to the nearby (5 minutes drive) to 5-Star Hotels of Curtain Bluff and Carlisle Bay Resorts can provide similar resort type services.

Island tours and excursions (Safari tours, kayaking, canoeing, zip line canopy, rainforest tours, biking tours, etc. can be acquired from local vendors and the owners would love to make some recommendations that will make your visit all you want it to be.
