“9 days in a paradise garden”
Reviewed 15 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

person found this review helpful

We don't like to stay in a resort, so with my husband, we booked 9 days at the Villa Patiently Waiting, and we have enjoyed every moment we passed there. The pool is as blue as the Caribbean Sea, the rooms are cleans and well furnished. Alvin the owner was very attentive to speak with us to know if all was nice. We both have very much appreciated the kindness and the competence of Chris Ludford, our caretaker, always ready to advice us about the places or the restaurants to go.
The villa is close to Dolphin Cove, where we swam with the dolphins. About 25 min drive, we were jumped in the Irie Blue Hole, thank to our guide Jerom it was a memorable time. We also drove to Kingston to reach Strawberry Hill in the Blue Mountain where we saw the gallery of Chris Blackwell and all Stars records.
We have been dining at Christopher's at Ocho Rios, and at Sharkies on the beach, we were amazed by the lobster lunch.
Olivier and I spent 9 precious days, in a place like a paradise garden and we would like to return there again. Thank to Chris and all the Jamaican people we met, we are grateful for your welcome.

“Beautiful holiday retreat”

person found this review helpful

Location was spot on! Not to far from ochi town, and not far from at Ann's bay! Situated on a private estate, patiently waiting is a little gem! Alvin the owner is the best owner/landlord you could wish for! Easy going, nothing is too much trouble, we were lucky enough to get to meet him on our holiday, as he was around constantly improving, And providing little touches to make you feel even more comfortable! Well appreciated. Chris the caretaker as there waiting for us on arrival, even though we were delayed, I was feeling quite ill after landing, he was a star! Prepared me freshly picked lemon grass tea, which did just the trick! Thanks Chris! Betty our sweet housekeeper, well no stain was tougher than Betty! Washed my clothes beautifully, and was there for any little thing you might need, a real asset to the place. Beautiful swimming pool and grounds pictures does it no justice! Private beach 5 mins along private road, restaurant on beach very good value for money, staff lovely and welcoming, will definitely look forward to booking again,!!

Mr Appleton thank you for this beautiful villa, My family of 7 stayed for 3 weeks arriving back last night and had the time of our lifes. This villa is absolutely stunning inside and out a real gem. The swimming pool and hot tub was the icing on the cake! Mr Appleton's staff treated us like part of the family. Chris was always on hand and looked after all our needs and the house keeper. All attractions are a stone through away and very easy to get to (horse back riding, Dolphin cove, Dunn's River Falls, Rain forest Adventures Mystic Mountain. You also have access the the beach which is less then 5min walk. I have to mention chief Clevie, omg this man is a gem and can cook!!. He catered for my family every day preparing breakfast, lunch, dinner. He's cooking is to die for and nothing was out of his way. "he is the master in jerking chickening using the bbq on site (so pls try his cooking) No need for you to eat out because chief can prepare all what you need. I could go on and on, you will not be disappointed in this paradise. Thank you again Mr Appleton we will surely return next year.

“Patiently Waiting to go back!!!”
Reviewed 7 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

people found this review helpful

A friend and I spent 10 days at Patiently Waiting and we couldn't have asked for a better place!! The rooms were clean, a/c great, staff was top notch, beds were comfortable......pillows were a little hard, but who cares!!! All the staff was so genuine, it was great talking to them and getting to know their culture, beliefs and the way the way they live!! Chris, the caretaker lives on the property which was so nice to know if we needed anything he was just steps away!!!

While we were there the owner of the property, Alvin was there. We were so fortunate to meet him and his family, sitting around talking with them was the highlight of our trip!! They were so welcoming of our American ways, lol!!!

The pool and property were amazing, everyone worked from morning to night making sure everything was well kept. Bamboo Blu is the restaurant and beach that was just a short walk from the villa. The staff there was so welcoming and the food was delicious!!! I felt safe walking to the beach alone or with friends.

To catch a cab was just a short walk to the gate where the security guards were so helpful making sure we were safe. The villa in within a gated community so I never felt safety to be an issue!!!

We have been to Jamaica a few times and always enjoy getting out and learning the culture of the country and meeting the local people!!! We would never stay at a resort again after staying at Patiently Waiting!!! We look forward to seeing everyone in a few months when we return. We are hopeful the property owner will be around again :)

The only improvement I would say is needed is for better lighting in the bedrooms.....:).

Reviewed 17 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

people found this review helpful

The villa doesn't strike you as anything out of the ordinary from the outside, but as you step in there's all you could ask for. Comfortable, clean, tastefully decorated with thoughtful little details, and plenty of relaxing quiet spots to enjoy a truly restful break. Amazing to have our own pool (and the water was perfect!). All kept immaculate by the ever friendly and helpful staff. This place has access to a private spot of beach with a very nice restaurant, and is a short drive from Ocho Rios and the supermarket/shops, and of course Dunns River Falls. Chris the caretaker will happily help out with anything, whether you need directions to local amenities or instructions on how to switch on the hot tub! From exploring the grounds and the fruit trees, relaxing by the pool with a book or retreating from the midday heat to the bedroom aircon, this was a true family getaway. We are already plotting to bring the rest of the family next time!

My family and I truely enjoied our two weeks at this Villa! It is a beautiful property with very friendly & helpful staff! Loved the pool & the grounds! Be prepared to taxi wherever you need to go as there is not a lot around within walking disitance other than the beach and bamboo Blu restaurant, which was fabulous!! I recommend the large lobster, worth the cost! Alvin called to check on us during our stay to make sure everything was to our liking!
Keep up all the great work out there!
Most defiantly have recommended this place to friends and family!!

Alvin was very easy to speak to and was accommodating to some of my date changes, which was great. On arrival at the villa, Chris made sure we had everything we needed. The villa was perfectly located for us but note you will need a car / transportation to get to the main attractions around Ocho Rios. We felt very safe in the compound (there is security at the entrance to the Mammee Bay Estate) and Chris was always on hand if we had any questions or concerns. Towels were provided but note you may have to bring your own washing up liquid and toilet roll or otherwise request in advance (presumably for a charge). The wifi worked perfectly throughout our stay. I have no faults with the villa whatsoever and would consider coming back here if travelling with a similar size group. The only bugbear was that the gate was very difficult to lock at times and would sometimes make a loud screeching sound while trying to close it. Probably nothing a little wd40 cant fix.

Thank you for your beautiful review.

Due to it being a self catering vacation we only provide washing up liquid also toilet rolls upon arrival after that is finished guests are expected to provide their own.

Taxis are very cheap in Jamaica it costs less than one pound per person to go to Ocho Rios if you take a local taxi.

Thank you again for the great review
