We were 2 couples who have rented many other villas in the Caribbean. Stayed in March 2022. The good things about this villa are the location, the breath taking view, the privacy of the 2 master suites on the main level, the out door space for eating, the pizza oven. The kitchen in fairly well equipped for food preparation.
The owner is very responsive and helpful if contacted directly.
The not so good about this villa are small details but were very frustrating and should not have to be dealt with on vacation. In our opinion it all comes down to regular maintenance which we are assuming is the responsibility of the property manager. Communication there was spotty, short and not very helpful until the owner got involved, It took 2 days to get enough towels for 4 people
There was an issue with the fridge on day one, leaking on the floor and freezing the groceries we purchased. By day 3 it actually stopped working. Again once the owner was involved the fridge was replaced in less than 24 hours , which seemed very impressive for such a small island. Once the fridge was replaced the reverse osmosis drinking water stopped working so had to buy bottled. The propane Barbeque was repainted, I am assuming to freshen it up..but all the paint was peeling off . We tried to use it but the smell of the paint used on it was overwhelming when it was lit. The television was missing a power supply and it took 2 days to get that. The blow dryer didn’t work. The kitchen has so many great appliances but has no toaster. Lots of plates and bowls and pans and random glassware but only 3 wine glasses? Power went out 3 times for about 30 min.
Again I don’t mean to sound unreasonable about all of this. It is all small things but they were frustrating to deal with. We have never experienced anything like this in any of our previous rentals.
One thing that would be very helpful is a notebook for the house that has all of the necessary information. The wifi information, garbage instructions, use of pizza oven, local contact information, suggested restaurants and activities, taxi info. We have never been to a property that didn’t have something like this.
I want to end on a positive note. This is a lovely villa and is in an excellent location. Would we return? Yes..but…the small details need to be addressed. If you want top dollar for your rental you need to provide top level service and amenities and some of that is definitely lacking here.

We had a wonderful time at the Villa. Well stocked Kitchen and outdoor cooking. Cooked at home most nights. Dined at the big table poolside, plenty of room for 8 people. The convenience of the beach and grocery store was great. Always forgetting something from the store. This is our sixth Villa that we rented in the Caribbean and the best one

This villa was magnificent .....properly described and it lived up to this listing in almost every way. A well planned home that was comfortable for our two couples. The view of the harbor both day and night was spectacular and enjoyed by us all. This home had everything one could want ......great kitchen....out side veranda and pool area ......beautiful and comfortable interior. Would recommend the property and give it a five star rating. In reading past write-ups.....easy to be confused with the references to a cat issue. We had daily visit by 3 cats and really did not know how to handle them.....feed them or chase them. Not of us allergic to cats....but both couples dog lovers. When we questioned our home liaison person.......she stated there are NO cats. Yet cat food was visible both inside and outside on the deck and they made daily visits to the property. I think this should be addressed properly on site. Sorry we did not get to meet owner.....sounds like an interesting person with nice family and even though none of us are sailors .....love to hear of some of his adventures. Very good restaurants in the Harbor and great people abound on this island ......hope to return sometime.

Fair Winds is a beautiful hill top villa within the Sugar Ridge resort, overlooking Jolly Harbour. The views are amazing.
It is beautifully furnished with Eastern style furniture and wonderful pictures on the walls. It has an infinity pool, BBQ's and a Pizza oven. The kitchen is well equipped. The two bedrooms downstairs are reached by an external staircase. We had a wonderful time staying in this villa. The supermarket is 2 minutes away and there are beautiful beaches very nearby. It is the perfect location. The owner Gian responded very quickly to all our questions and was very efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa over the Christmas period.

We had a great time in Antigua! The views over the pool are amazing, and we enjoyed the pool every evening. So much seating, you can get comfortable anywhere! The house was very clean and well stocked. The only thing missing was maybe a pool floatie? We also loved the close proximity to the beaches, grocery store, restaurants and bars, and diving/snorkeling shops. You can definitely walk if you don’t mind the steep hill on the way back. The access to the resort gym was also a great bonus, we took full advantage: especially the free yoga classes!

What a welcoming and comfortable place! Unbelievable view over the magic colors of the Caribbean Sea, constant breeze and few mosquitos. This villa is truly amazing! The inside decorations are a mixture of Italian and Balinese styles, all of great character. The recessed kitchen is well-equipped and leaves space to a large living room with a 180 degrees view over the sea and the white beaches. The bedrooms are quite big and so are the bathrooms. Fair Winds is inside the Sugar Ridge complex, a very safe location with a security guard at the main gate 24/7. A lot of nice beaches are minutes away by car from the villa. Outside, within the property boundaries, there is a surrounding large tropical garden, the backyard really makes you feel being in a rain forest. Absolute privacy is assured. We did not rent a car for the entire period but we were able to get down at Jolly Harbour on foot to the supermarket, pharmacy, banks and restaurants. The road inside Sugar Ridge is quite steep but this Villa is not far from the gate so walking uphill was not a problem for us.
We also appreciated that the Villa is self-sufficient in terms of water and electricity. We were told that there is a backup generator but it never kicked in during our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fair Winds. The villa is beautifully appointed and in a superb location with amazing views over Jolly Harbour. As a party of 4 couples the villa provided spacious and well thought out accommodation enhanced by the tasteful decor and fixtures / fittings. The photographs do not really do the villa justice , the view from the terrace is incredible and the property is completely private , it is not overlooked by anyone and enjoys an extended garden area full of fruit tress and tropical plants . As with all properties on the Sugar Ridge estate , the approach is via a steep access road however Fair Winds is the first property you come to so the access road is shorter than all others . We were fortunate to meet the owners during our stay who were very welcoming and accommodating . The villa manager was very friendly and efficient Should we return to Jolly Harbour we will not hesitate to stay again.

We definitely loved our stay at Villa Fair Winds. It is a new construction tastefully decorated where we felt immediately at home. The view is just stunning and the tropical gardens surrounding the villa offer maximum privacy. The place is very safe and a security guard is at the gate 24 hours a day. Supermarket, bank, car hire, pharmacy and restaurants are in within walking distance. All bedrooms have large ensuite shower rooms and efficent aircon, the kitchen is very well stocked and the outside barbecue area could serve a restaurant need. Antigua's best white beached are just minutes away by car: Turners, Darkwood, Valley Church, Jolly Beach, what a paradise on earth !

Villa Fair Winds is a beautiful, comfortable, clean and well-equipped residence which really exceeded our expectations.
The rooms and pool are lovely, providing a relaxing atmosphere in which to rest and unwind. The views and sunsets from the veranda are spectacular.
There were no surprises. Any question we had was handled efficiently by the friendly and helpful support staff. We had a very good time at Villa Fair Winds and would highly recommend it to friends anytime.
Positives: spectacular view, spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, pleasant living room, very well equipped kitchen, good infinity pool, close by facilities of Jolly Harbour (i.e. shops, supermarket, restaurants, beaches, watersports).
Negatives: the holiday was too short!

Very comfortable for group of 8, well stocked and well maintained and safe. Could improve towels and linens and mattresses but we had a great stay. Easy transport to and from airport. Kitchen well stocked and great grill and pizza oven. WiFi worked well. TV does not get cable but that was ok with us. Beautiful sunsets from the pool.
