Our family of six adults gathered at the Villa for a week over the Christmas holidays. The location simply could not be beat. We spent a good part of every day swimming and snorkeling in the beautiful cove and along the rocky coastline all the way up past 3 Dives. Underwater was like being in a fish tank and the caves and rocks were full of things to explore. Early mornings were best before the wind kicked up. The ladder into the water made it easy to get in and out but my sons still insisted on jumping from the rocks occasionally! The plaza area was fabulous for daily sunbathing and evening cocktails for the sunset and stargazing. We ate dinner every night on the spacious veranda as well as catching a nap there occasionally. Although the interior furnishings are a bit worn the house was clean and equipped for our stay and once there, you realize that it fits well the Negril casual lifestyle. Besides I spent very little time inside the house. Beds were comfortable, there was plenty of water for showers, and towels and supplies. There is some noise and late parties in the neighborhood but only once did it get a bit out of hand (at 3 am) and Rodney (night security) took care of it for us. We cooked most of our meals at home with just a few trips to the Icon grocery or L&M convenience store down the street. We made a trip to the Negril Fish Market for lobster and snapper and Fabi helped to grill the fish outside. It is also a short walk to many of the local food spots, like Samsura (very nice but a bit pricey) or 3 Dives (do not miss the jerk chicken with bammy!), or DBar or Erica’s, and it is only a nice 15-25 minute walk to Rock House or to experience the craziness of Rick’s. Our rental car fell though so Fabi set us up with the greatest cab driver (Bobby) who ended up almost serving as our personal tour guide. He took us on trips to the market, YS Falls, Blue River, Beach, and even joined us for dinner at a few great local eateries (Cloggy’s in Blue River was amazing fish). Billy, the owner, was responsive and helpful in every way. We had a wonderful vacation and truly hated to leave.
"We had a party of five - three men in their sixties and two young men in their twenties - and we couldn't have picked a better location. We liked being on the cliff road and having access to the sea for snorkeling. The grounds are beautiful and the house is spacious. Ian, the night security guard, and Fabi, the gardener, helped make our vacation fun, safe, and interesting. We didn't make use of the maid service or cooking, so we can't comment on that. We made breakfasts every morning - we got juice from the stand across the street and cooked our own pancakes and eggs. We also prepared some of our own lunches. The food in the neighborhood is great - I highly recommend the jerk chicken at Three Dives (skip the lobster). The neighbor resort (Samsara) has a great happy hour special from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm. Two for one on all rum drinks and I recommend trying the Banana Daiquiri. The owner responded promptly to every inquiry (via email and telephone). It was a pleasure doing business with him. One warning - for those of us who are used to American showers and toilets, the water pressure is lower."
The location of this villa is superb if you like to snorkel. The access ladder makes it easy to get in and out of the water safely. Once in the water you won't find a much better snorkeling experience anywhere. We were in the water several times a day. My grand daughter enjoyed working on her tan when not swimming and all of us spent many hours on the large veranda reading and eating many of our meals. There was room for our rental car inside the gate which we could lock at night. The inside of the house is a bit worn but clean. The kitchen and large counter are very convenient. We appreciated the three baths plus an outside shower for after swimming--- and lots of towels. We ate about half our meals in and Polly, who looks after the place, cooked us an excellent fish dinner one night. We ate several times at a nice restaurant within walking distance by the Samsara Resort as well as Patties at Niah's on the Seven Mile Beach and and Jerk Chicken at the Three Dives.My wife and I are bird watchers and found 3 hummingbirds and several others that are endemic to Jamaica on the property.
The property is right on the West End road and the locals honk their horns a lot and generally make a fair amount of noise. We thought we might have trouble sleeping but we usually played so hard that we were plenty tired at night. We met a few of the neighbors and really enjoyed their outgoing, friendly nature.
The owner was very easy to contact either by email or phone and answered any questions we had quickly.
I've stayed here with my wife and another couple. Lovely spot. Short drive to town. Short walk to food market. Great private spot for swimming. Great value. I plan to stay again this March.
We do rent a car, but you can always get a taxi.
Ocean access not great for timid swimmers, or young children. It's about 5 miles to the beach.
We are two italian guys coming in Jamaica from Florence - Italy and we stayed in this fabuolus villa one week. We think that the location of the villa is perfect and in the best place of Jamaica. Stayng here nothing else is necesary. Everythingit's perfect here. Unfortunately we didn't meet Billy, the owner, but he is very kind and friendly and he provide for everything in the villa by very kindly local people. At our arrival we was welkomed by the housekeeper and the gardener. The gardener remain around the home everyday and provide for all needs. Also the night watchman was very helpful and provide every night to protect us and the villa. We found the villa very clean at our arrival.
If we'll come again in Jamaica surely we would like to stay here again and we'll suggest this accommodation to our friend.
Thank you Billy, thank you very much for all.
