The Big White Villa...AWESOME! I was Very hesitant about this trip, I am a resort/hotel person and 14 people together was new to me. This place is Beautiful...we had multiple balconies, weren’t cramped, and the views were Breathtaking! I Loved the privacy and peacefulness of the location...gated entry, 60 steps down to the beach, a clean pool, hammocks and gazebo. I wish we had a longer visit-I could Live in the Big White Villa! The Magnificent Staff: Chef Kevin...World Class-I wasn’t disappointed with Any meal he prepared, in fact, I couldn’t wait til we got back daily to eat his dishes(I even ate the fish-I Never do)rather than eat out. Watching him cook and learning about the different foods, spices and natural remedies was awesome! Mr. Sam was as attentive as he was gracious and quiet-keeping everything in order at the villa. We had the pleasure of including Tinesha in our June birthday celebrations. She went above and beyond making sure all of our rooms were straight, and we had fresh linens and towels for the pool. We appreciate the extras you did and hope you enjoyed us singing to you. Last, but not least, Errol Williams and Errol Bowen...Thank You! You guys went Way above and beyond for our group. You catered to our whims, advised us on what to do and where to go. You defended us against people who were going to take advantage of us, hung out with us whenever and wherever we went. Thanks Everyone at The Big White Villa for a Memorable, Wonderful experience!

The Big white Ville is Peacefull .. spiritual. Quiet and the property is beautiful. The big white Villa is also in a very nice peaceful in private neighborhood I love that. The big white Villa exceeds my expectations of a place to stay on vacation. The staff are phenomenal and very helpful. The big white Villa is very clean and neat and comfortable.
Chef Kevin is awesome he made sure that we had healthy options every day which is very important to me. The big white Villa is definitely a place that I would recommend returning for vacation rental.
Awesome place to stay so many rooms with balconies to view the ocean or the mountains. The staff was amazing Kevin our cook was great. Sam silent but watching over the property at all times. Errol williams and Errol Bowmen great drivers took us sight seeing. Cleaning staff was great as well.
14 of us stayed and had plenty space to relax.
I suggest this place to big groups like ours it was perfect.
I deliberated long and hard about what to write, because initially I was very angry and upset. I will begin with the positive aspects of the villa which was the staff especially Kevin, the chef. They did everything that they could to make our stay enjoyable. From our first night there, we noticed problems. There were 10 adults, 2 teens, and a baby in our party. We occupied all of the bedrooms. The biggest problem which was not resolved was the water pressure. If more than 2 people were using the water, the others had no water. I was told that the water pressure has been bad for awhile and that the owner was notified of this and told of a solution. This solution was not followed through on. The following are other problems that were not resolved: (1) hot tub not getting hot, (2) air conditioners not working properly, (3) refrigerator not working properly. Most of the appliances are old and this is probably the reason that they are not working. The owner apparently has not deemed it important to take care of the necessary maintenance that is required for the villa.
It was no hot water, and the plumbing sucked other than that. ..tanesha, chef Kevin, and sam was awesome.
This vacational rental exceeded all of our expectations. The groundskeeper "Sam" and the helper "Ann Marie" were wonderful. Each room in this house has it's own state of the art decor. The view and the overall cleanliness of this home was spectacular. We had a wonderful driver, which catered to every request and then some. This was a five star experience without the long lines and over crowded pools of a resort. The beach is a close distance, despite the long trek down the steps to actually get there. There wasnt a large amount of mosquitoes or any insects for that matter. The pool was cleaned everyday and the lighting for the gazebo was great. The kids were able to swim in the pool while we were able to observe them from the balcony by the kitchen. The kitchen has every amentitie that you could think of and more, while still being accessible. Before we arrived the staff went grocery shopping based on a list that was given to us. And anything that they were unable to get, the manager was more than helpful with taking us to get the rest of items we desired. Out first night there, our dinner was prepared with an array of dishes for both the adults and children. Breakfast was always served early, with a variety of different things for us to eat. Both Jamaican and American dishes as well, which was a good mixture. The only qualm we had with the chef was his over use of oil. His hand was a little heavy on the oil. But besides that, anything that we asked him to make, he was able to prepare. Now while this place is a little out of the way, our driver made sure that no destination was too far or of an inconvience. Cleon I believe was his name, was a stand up guy. He had a great sense of humor and he really knew the road. Not once was any of us afraid or scared, when he was behind the wheel. He did a great job and it's clear that he enjoys what he does. Every morning each of the rooms were cleaned and the beds were made. The floors were swept and mopped. Ann Marie works very hard and it shows, just based on the upkeep of the whole establishment. Sam, who is such a humble and quiet gentleman always kept an eye out and was very helpful. There was an issue with the gas and he stopped at nothing to make sure that it was resolved. One call was made and it was fixed in no time. Overall, the stay here was one for the record books and I will recommend this vacation rental ten times over. As for anyone that had an issue with having to buy food or stock the pantry, thats a little far fetched. This is a vacation home, treat it as if you are at home. We went food shopping twice, during the weeks stay, because of the size of our party and the fact that there were a lot of kids. Each meal prepared and everything that was consumed were things of our preference. You stock the pantry for the duration of your trip. We had fresh fruit, bun and cheese. We bought meat to be cooked by the chef. We wanted bacon, eggs, and pancakes for breakfast, so we made sure that those were the items we purchased at the supermarket. I walked away from this trip not wanting to stay at any more resorts because they took away from the privacy that you would like to have with your family or friends. You go away and everything seems so rushed and theres no privacy. We were able to sit on the veranda and talk and laugh, while enjoying the cool breeze. And trust me, the wind blows and its calm and relaxing. There were several balconies for you to just sit and take in the scenery. If your intent is to spend real time with your family, all while having your personal needs met, then this is definitely the place. The decor is one of a kind
