“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.

“My Dream Holiday”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This really was my dream holiday. Arriving at Ffryes House after an easy journey- Virgin flight and short taxi ride- we chose our rooms, all spotless with overhead fans and air con., tastefully furnished all with en-suite bathrooms.
The house is cool and bright with everything we wanted or needed for our stay. Well equipped kitchen and great BBQ and outside terrace, where we ate breakfast and meals when we weren't eating at one of the numerous beach cafes or local restaurants.
We did walk to one of the many stunning beaches, a 15 min stroll from the house, but there are many to choose from and very few people except on the days the cruise liners are visiting the island. If you want privacy, just drive on to another beach or go back to the pool at Ffryes.
There is a wood fired pizza restaurant just across the road and several other eating places within walking distance.
The house has a selection of videos and games for evening entertainment.
This house is obviously loved and well cared for by the owners and I will be looking to return again,

“Not quite so peaceful!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

If you are looking for peace and tranquility here...then I suggest you look and stay elsewhere.

Whilst the house is lovely, we found the industrial digger just 10 yards away digging and clearing away approx 1 acre of land for the adjacent property (new build) was not for us. :(

We had to go out every day and the digging stopped just for 1 day. Such a shame. We had called the agents jolly villas as we had said we were not too happy and Howard said they were not suppose to start until the 18th November !! There was nothing he could do!!

I suggested a small goodwill gesture would have not gone amiss.....alas I am still waiting and not even an apology from the owners..shame on them.

Whilst I understand there is not much you are able to do with other people building....I felt the curtesy would have been to at least advise you of the pending work that will be due as a precaution of work starting early.

As I said the house was in good order and pleasant but I did have to re clean the cutlery and a few of the dishes...minor. Dishwasher did not work but again, not an issue at the time as we were fairly happy to hand wash.

I can only suggest that if you were planning to stay here or with the agent jolly villas...make sure you obtain a rental that reflects the acceptance of so much noise. The generators at the front - across the road was also an issue. Book away at your leisure but do not say I had not tried to pre warn you...
