All meals would be prepared according to your specification and served in an intimate setting either on the garden varandah or on the patio area which has a view of the sea. All that can be had at the Yellow Canary.

I live in London, England from a young age and went to school there. Recently I have been spending lots of precious time in Jamaica where I was born. I go back to London in the Spring staying there till Autumn.

I first visited Duncans Bay, 18 years ago with my young children and was walking along this quaint little lane which has a few cottages and directly in front the big ocean appearing through branches of almond trees which lined the banks in front of the beach. I bought one of the cottages. The living room opens out to the patio area which makes it light and airy. All the bedrooms have louver windows bringing in fresh sea breeze into the rooms.

The sea is turquoise blue and the beach is just wonderful with white sands. There is a green lawn that stretches along the beach which is great for children to play on. My children love this area and the beach and now bring their children to play here.

I love the flushed tropical scenery with an atmosphere of calm and peace here during weekdays. At weekends live music is performed by local artists at the Beach hut.

This area is ideal connection to many attractions and Montego Bay Airport is just 40 minutes drive.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This was one of my favorite vacations. If you like hanging at the beach and a very laid back vacation, you will love this place! Miss Iris made wonderful meals all week. I especially liked how she made her fish. If you are lucky enough to get Miss Sandra also, make sure she makes some banana cake. I suggest letting them do most of your grocery shopping since they know what to get. We went one time to check out the grocery store and that was a fun side trip. If there is any food from home that you can't do without, I suggest you bring it. Jamaican food is reasonable, but imported food is very expensive. We brought peanut butter, tea, crackers, granola bars and other snack items.

The house is very nice with wonderful gardens. We ran the A/C at night in the rooms but where comfortable during the day.

Make sure you check out Leroy's on the beach. We went dancing Saturday night.

Johnny took us to Ocho Rios for a day. We had a great lunch, tubing on the White River (my 10 yr old son's favorite activity) and visited the Fire Water Springs. Curtis showed us the local cave one morning which was interesting. The rest of the time we spent at the beach.

A great way to the real Jamaica in a safe environment instead of staying at an all-inclusive resort.

BEAUTIFUL RELAXING VILLA BY THE SEA!

  • 5 out of 5
Everything about our trip was wonderful! Miss Iris is a wonderful lady that took care of us better than any 5-star hotel. Her food was fabulous and the villa was immaculate! It all made for such a relaxing vacation for us all. Johnny did such a good job showing us Jamaica and the local culture (and food). Although it was a long trip, I'm glad we went to Appleton Estates and back through Negril. We experienced more of Jamaica on that day than we could imagine. Jamaica has such a vast array of things to see and do, aside from just sitting on the (wonderful!) beach. This is the first time we had done a rental by owner, so we weren't exactly sure what we were in for. But Miss Veronica has done such a fabulous job with the location and staffing of the villa, it felt like home away from home. I couldn't believe that it really was as close to that little gazebo on the beach as it showed on the web! That was amazing!

RELAXING AND ENJOYABLE

  • 4 out of 5
Arrived on the Sunday, to be met by our very welcoming driver Johnny, who was only too happy to take us for a relaxing drive to the villa - via the local pub
We were then greeted by Iris, our chef and housekeeper who looked after us very well, while we were there.
The rest of the staff including the gardener Curtis and Sandra the other part-time chef and house keeper made our stay very enjoyable to.
The villa its self is clean and tidy and is in an ideal place to enjoy not only the beach, but travel for an hour either way by car and you reach some very interesting and bustling areas namely Ocho Rios or Montego Bay.
The only negative side was on the Saturday when some people were playing some very loud music, but this did not last long, so it did not upset our holiday.
Sights - Ocho Rios we went to Turtle falls this was nice and then went to there local market, very interesting but be prepared to barter.
If you want to give Iris a break from the cooking and fancy something else try Scotchies near Montego Bay is a really good place for traditional Jamaican barbecue food and very reasonably priced.
All in all we had a great time there which ended all to soon and would recommend to other people.

A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 out of 5
We have been home about a month and we are still talking about this trip and our stay at the Yellow Canary. From the moment Johnny picked us up at the airport all our needs were taken care of. I really can't say enough great things about Iris. I woke each morning to the smell of coffee brewing in the kitchen! Iris prepared breakfast and dinner for us and we really enjoyed sampling some of the local cuisine. We loved the fresh fish that she purchased at Fisherman's Beach, right in front of LeRoy's. Iris was a joy to have around and we learned so much from her about the culture and traditions of Jamaica. We found this villa to be exactly as pictured....beautiful. We loved dining on the back veranda in the evening and the front veranda in the morning. There was always shade in the yard and a breeze coming off the ocean and through the house. We would recommend going shopping with Iris if you get a chance. We shopped with her in Duncans as well as at the market in Falmouth and so enjoyed the experience. She helped us exchange money as well as shop for food for the week. We felt very safe and secure the entire time we were there. We found the Jamaican people to be very friendly and helpful. We found the beach to be very nice and not crowded at all. It is a very short walk from the villa. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay by a beautiful beach, then the Yellow Canary is it!

HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second stay at the Yellow Canary. We love it so much we have already booked it for Christmas 2014! The villa and its surroundings are just as described by the owner and other reviewers. The property is well maintained and about 100 yards to the ocean. While it is a local beach, it feels very private and safe. We have never been harassed or bothered by anyone. If you are looking for quiet and solitude, along with a beautiful setting, the yellow canary is the right place. Miss Iris's meals are truly excellent and she will do whatever necessary to make your stay the most enjoyable ever. Johnny, the driver for the villa, will go out of his way to accommodate your schedule and desires. What are you waiting for??? Book your stay now. You won't be disappointed!!!

PRIVATE PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
I have been home for about 2 weeks now. I truly miss being at the villa. We are a family of 5, 3 children ages 18-6. Ms. Veronica was very helpful with any questions I had before arriving. Once there it was more then what I expected. It was such a wonderful relaxing experience. The kids loved it. The villa was beautiful, spacious and well kept. The garden was beautiful we ate outside most of the time. The beach was beautiful and just footsteps away. Most of the time we were the only ones on the beach. It felt like our own private paradise. You can hear the ocean from the villa and feel the ocean breeze. We got to know some of the locals and everyone was so warm and welcoming. We enjoyed cool Red Stripe overlooking the sea at Leroy’s bar while listening to some great music and meeting wonderful people. Our stay would not have been as wonderful were it not for Ms. Iris. She made us feel very welcomed. She was wonderful with all of us. She helped with whatever we needed and guided us all thru our stay. She kept everything very neat and clean. She made our stay at the villa extra special. If you are looking for a beautiful relaxing getaway away from the hustle and bustle of tourist areas, this is the place to go. We loved our vacation and cannot wait to return!

Nearby attractions and activities. Just 10 minutes drive from here is Falmouth Town which is an old historical town with lovely old buildings, churches, shops, a hospital, and a great market. Some of the largest cruse ships dock here 3 times weekly. Historical plantation houses such as Good Hope Great House and Rose Hall are worth seeing.

Dunns River Falls, Swimming with the Dolphins, and River Rafting Adventure are a must and are located in Ocho Rios.
