About Clare Sudlow & Joe Naysmith

We are a sailor and an artist who have happily settled in Jolly Harbour. We have our own boat and enjoy life to the full and now enjoy sharing the Jolly 'dream' with our 'Dee' villa guests!

Clare Sudlow & Joe Naysmith purchased this villa in 2012

Why Clare Sudlow & Joe Naysmith chose Jolly Harbour

Safe, secure and waterfront with a beautiful beach a short walk away, a golf course, choice of restaurants, a friendly yacht club and 'buzzy' seasonal community - and we can keep our boat right in front of our house!

What makes this villa unique

A rare glimpse of a dolphin visiting the harbor the day I first viewed the property!

If you want a vacation to just relax and unwind, then villa DEE is where you need to go. It is on the North finger of the Jolly Harbour complex, very safe and quiet and a 2 minute walk to the north beach.

The owners of the Vila have a 2 person golf cart for rent and you will Need it to get to the supermarket and the South beach and restaurants.

The villa is well equipped with everything you need for your vacation, there is a large fridge and all the cooking utensils that you would require if you are into self catering.

The villa faces East and there is a constant breeze that keeps it cool day and night, the bedrooms have A/C, but we very seldom used them. The veranda was a great place to spend the evenings and there are no other villas in front to obstruct the views of the waterways and mountains.

The only real issue that we had during our vacation is that there is a water problem at Jolly Harbour at present and this not related to the Villa, but the entire complex.

If you are looking for a villa to rent then villa DEE is the one to get, Clare the owner is extremely responsive and willing to do/get anything done to make your vacation a great one.

Would we go back? In a heartbeat, and we are already planning our next year vacation at villa DEE.

Good location on island.

  • 2 of 5

Villa was roomy and good layout. Know that the dock doesn’t belong to villa which was disappointing as we were looking forward to sitting on the dock at dusk. We were chased off by the neighbor who owned the dock. Also the owner lives on a boat a few docks over. Place could have been cleaner for my liking. Ceiling fans looking like they had not been cleaned in a long time. Although island life can have a issue with insects, I feel that the villa was overdue to be sprayed. The was quite a lot of aunts on kitchen counter and floor. Had killed 5 cockroaches that kept showing up in cutlery drawer. After day 2 we kept the cutlery in a plastic bag on counter so we would not have to face the bugs anymore. That being said if this was taken care of and the place was a bit cleaner it would have been good value place to stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Jane & Airdrie, thank you very much for your review. I am sorry that you had a problem with insects during your stay, we do carry out pest control procedures in the villa & activity does vary depending on time of year / rainfall etc.. The left hand side of the dock does belong to the villa & our guests have access to the finger pier - so boat owners are welcome to use the left hand side, sit on the deck immediately in front of the villa & many of our guests enjoy fishing from the end of the finger pier .. you should not have been chased off by the neighbouring villa owner & this is something we shall address.

Quiet place within a five minute drive to exciting beach and great restaurants and bars.

  • 4 of 5

The previous occupants broke the screen door and shower knob. And they left the place a little messy. When we arrived Joe was cleaning and fixing as much as he could. Excellent near-by beaches and Widadhi cat cruises available. A very spacious and lovely apartment .... and fantastic internet and cable TV.

Chardonnay, Burgundy, France

A superbly positioned property close to all the best of the west coast.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well furnished with comfortable beds and the kitchen is well equipped with everything you would require (the best set of kitchen knives I have ever seen in a rental!!). Internet is very fast - impressive. Jolly Harbour is ideally located for six of the best beaches on the island, all within fifteen minutes drive and all served by excellent locally owned beach bar restaurants. A perfect day? After breakfast on the sunny terrace, a day on one of the local beaches enjoying the sun and the frequent dips in the sea, followed by lobster, coconut shrimp or even an excellent burger and fries at the bar restaurant with a few beers and a bottle of reasonably priced wine. Then back home via the supermarket to pick up some local produce to chuck on the barbecue back at the villa with more wine and then followed by a coconut rum on ice. What more could you want. We will be back next year (we hope). Thank you, Clare and Joe for your hospitality and welcome.

Dees Villa

  • 5 of 5

The property and Villa were both perfect for our family of 6 to stay and visit many attractions on the island. The Harbour was gated, secure and quiet, yet close to the Grocery, pharmacy and good food! Joe was more than helpful with any questions and made our stay very enjoyable. Highly recommend the area and Villa for families or couples.

Lovely Villa in beautiful Jolly Harbour

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending 2 weeks at Villa Dee, we cannot fault the hospitality of Joe and Clare, nothing was too much trouble, the Villa is very comfortable, jolly harbour is a stunning location and has everything you could want as a holiday destination, a well stocked supermarket , pharmacy, and a good selection of restaurants to choose from, a golf cart is a must to get around with, both beaches are good, the north is very quiet, the south is beautiful and so big that there are plenty of peaceful areas, would love to come back again
