Booking was extremely easy and arrival went very smoothly. We were met at the airport as arranged and Yasmine was there to greet us. She was very helpful and checked a few times during the week. When we woke to no water, she had it fixed within half an hour. The bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean. Very good kitchen with everything needed for self catering. Be warned though- the dishwasher is poor and you are likely to end up washing by hand .The most impressive aspect of this villa is the fantastic outside space- covered dining area plus verandah for relaxing and a stunning pool. Couldn't ask for more in a place where you virtually live outside. The covered areas also mean that when the inevitable downpour occurs, you don't have to dive for cover.
The area is good- easy reach of numerous restaurants and the supermarket. The one downside which did spoil the experience somewhat, was the noise. The bar over the road and another nearby restaurant, have their music on extremely loud with a PA system/karaoke blaring into the night. At times I had to sleep with earplugs because it was so intrusive. It is not every night, and if you're ok with this then I would recommend this estate.

“Perfect Holiday Villa”
Reviewed March 20, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was my third visit to Ffryes Villa and hopefully not my last!
I guess it's partly the familiarity, but I love it so much and that's why I keep going back.
On arrival a taxi is waiting to take you to the villa - all part of the deal and a 4 wheel drive is available as an extra which I would recommend, although it is only a short walk to the beach.
The villa is very light and spacious with lovely pool and various terraces where you can relax, BBQ, dine, read or just lie on a sun bed and bronze your body!
We shopped at the nearby supermarket and cooked a lot. There are several restaurants within walking distance and the famous Carmichael's Cocktail Bar and restaurant right next door, where an electric powered buggy takes you up to a magnificent view and sunset. Couldn't be better.

“Outstanding Property”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Ffryes Villa is wonderful base from which to explore Antigua with it's many attractions. The Villa is spacious and very well equipped including a good sized swimming pool; most welcome when you need to cool off! The Villa is situated in a quiet location but close to local amenities and fantastic beaches very nearby. A 4X4 vehicle is an optional extra with the property which is handy to travel further afield such as English Harbour and Shirley Heights; absolutely must see places. It must be noted a temporary Antiguan driving license at $50.00 is mandatory. For fine dining with stunning views visit Carmichael's restaurant located on the Sugar Ridge complex very close to the Villa.

“Outstanding Holiday Rental!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I can only join in the praises of previous reviewers. The villa was light, airy, comfortable & well equipped. The 6 of us always had ample space, never felt crowded, always someone 1 could go off and be on their own to read or whatever.

There was ample space for 3 couples and facilities for families - high chair, a few toys & games, laundry facilities and an extra toilet.

I'd go again in a heartbeat and highly recommend

“A wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Everything about our stay at Ffryes Villa was perfect. The only thing I would change would be to stay for longer! The pool was great, and very welcome in the heat. The villa was very spacious, and included everything you could possibly need to have an enjoyable stay. There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance, including Oceanos, a great seafood restaurant about a 5 minute walk away (they also offer a free shuttle to and from the villa, just call them), a pizza place and fish and chip bus right across from the villa, and several more down at Jolly Harbor. We stayed in a few times and used the BBQ - it worked great and we really liked sitting out in the large covered outside areas.The beaches were beautiful - two of them (Valley Church and Jolly Beach) were a 10 minute walk away.

The property management were very helpful, and the local maintenance person, Don, was eager to provide recommendations for local attractions. He took us up to Shirley Heights on a Sunday for a fun evening of food and drink and music. Just give him a call on the cell phone provided if you need anything (including rum punch!).

All in all a great vacation! I would highly recommend Ffryes Villa to anyone looking to stay in the Jolly Beach area.

“Holiday of a lifetime - not to be missed”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We have just returned from a fabulous fortnight at the Ffryes villa. On arrival we found the furnishings and cleanliness of the villa superb. It had its own pool and a large patio with a bbq and outside dining area, and a separate outside seating area for relaxing. The villa had everything we could ask for including fans and air con and a well equipped kitchen.

There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance, a supermarket close at hand for all your shopping needs, and plenty of take-aways if required. There are also local beaches with bars and cafes.

The car was a bonus for touring the island and sightseeing.

We would definitely use this villa again and will be recommending it to all our friends and family.
