“A Jewel”

This Villa is truly a jewel. We spent 15 days there just returning a week ago, we didn't want to leave. A very secure place to stay, not far from anything. 5 minute walk to the beach, which is fantastic. Chris the property manager was very attentive, always making sure we were ok and happy. He has a great knowledge of the surrounding areas and the vegetation. The Housekeeper (Miss Pet) is wonderful, kind and considerate. This was our first time to rent a villa, this is definitely the way to go. Your own villa, peacefulness, and some of the most fantastic scenery in the world. Definitely going back.

When I arrived I was apprehensive as it was the first time i had been to Jamaica for years.

I arrived at the villa to be welcomed by Chris the caretaker who welcome us and showed how everything works.

The villa itself is fabulous the furniture is fantastic the staff are courteous and helpful the beach is only minutes away. The chef is out of this world.

It is a short drive away from all the major tourist attractions on the island

My family have vowed to return every year we would recommend this villa to everyone who wants to have a great time in Jamaica.

Thank you Alvin for making our holiday one to cherish for a lifetime

This villa's pictures do not do it justice. This property is beautifully kept with lush greenery and everything in the description is true. Chrs, the caretaker, is part of the wonderful staff and took care of my family and I for the entire time we were there.

He picked ackee and breadfruit for us and even roasted the breadfruit for us to enjoy. We were there for my husband's and I's wedding and everyone that visited us, loved the property. My mother and father are even thinking about holding a family gathering here. I would recommend this property to anyone and would loved to return and stay here again. Alvin, thank you to you and your wonderful staff for making our stay enjoyable and relaxing.

“Has potential ..villa needs updates and repairs.”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Let me start of by saying that Maurice the caretaker/ chef/ driver was absolutely great!! But he is just one person. Every meal he cooked for my party of eight was great! Better than local restaurants. Maurice catered to us in every way possible.
The property was not as advertised. The pictures on website are very out dated. Every room in villa needs updating. But the property is in a great location and walking distance from beach. The amenities were limited. No hair dryer, no DVD players for the rainy days, and a stereo from the 90's that falls apart if you touch it. Bath linen was extremely scarce. AC is only in the bed rooms so if you want to hang out in the living room you only have 1 fan to share, which isn't
much if you are not sitting under it. Beds in 2nd bedroom needs to be replaced along with all the bedding.
Villa has great potential.

“FOR A TRUSTWORTHY REVIEW...READ THIS!!!”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We flew out to Jamaica for a boys getaway and after a long search for the right accommodation, we found it! VILLA PATIENTLY WAITING!!! We was shocked at how the photos portrayed a modern standard with amazing space in a great location and a private pool. This was more than just a portrayal however, THIS WAS THE REALITY!

You'll be 10 minutes from Ocho, 30 minutes from Kingston via the highway, Mobay is about an hour so generally speaking everywhere is within touching distance! You just can't go wrong.

5 of us stayed in the main building and benefited from enough space so we didn't feel like we were stepping on each others toes. We'd either be in the pool, watching films from our USB...THERE WAS EVEN A LUDI BOARD!!!! The villa was perfect!

Mr Morris and Ms Pet were a massive help as well as everyone else in and around the villa whose names elude me. They were always there to advise or support if ever we needed it and we salute Morris on the morning breakfasts which set us up for the day ahead. All in all a really great trip and amazing experience. I have been Jamaica many times since I was young but there were a few in the group who've never been and they are very pleased with the overall experience they had.

Big thanks to Alvin for opening his home to us and treating us exactly as we wanted to be treated...LIKE MEN!!! In return we made sure we took care of his property and kept it to highest standard. Honestly, booking this Villa will not have you disappointed and if in the event you are, I don't care because the place is banging and I know for sure we'll be back which means more available dates for us!!! So stop nitpicking at everything and enjoy yourselves.

BIG UP EVERYTIME AND BIG UP SNOOP AND OSHANIE!
