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.

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

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!

We arrived at the Yellow Canary for a short but incredible visit. Hearing negative comments about Jamaica I was unsure of what to expect. Johnny picked us up at the airport and was wonderful he took us to the market and entertained myself and 3 children.He was a joy our entire trip and available whenever needed. His rates were reasonable and we did a great afternoon at Dunns River
Iris the housekeeper and cook is beyond belief. We would travel to Jamaica just to see her. The food she made was wonderful and my kids learned so much about Jamaica and its people. We are planning to return next year.
I feel like we got a taste of real culture and a vacation my children will never forget.
Thanks Iris and Johnny for a great memory.See you next year.

I have just taken an early retirement and decided to spend sometime in Jamaica. The "Yellow Canary" Villa in Duncan's Bay was recommended to me by some friends that stayed there previously, I took myself,my mother and my Aunt there for 5 days, "what a marvellous experience", the villa was such a wonderful place to relax and chill-out after working so hard after all these years, with it's comfortable loungers(both inside and outside). The beach is just a stone throw away, lovely and clean with the most amazing Sea View, not overcrowded and you are left to swim or rest-up in peace.

Veronica and her staff are very friendly and informative. The Villa is well kept, clean and with all the amenities and if you so wish, breakfast,lunch and dinner can be provided also (which is amazing, if you are willing to try something different.

From there you can go on to visit other places of interest, like Dunnns River Falls,The Great House, Ochi Rios and Falmouth is also close by where the big ships comes in to dock. Veronica also recommended a lovely fish restaurant where we had the most amazing fish experience.

Will defenately go back and stay sometime soon.

Well deserved rest by the sea

I have just spent a great week relaxing and swimming, I never been to a more beautiful setting before, and I have travelled the Caribbean. This villa is practically on the beach, which makes it even more of a relaxing retreat as there is no effort required. The beach is clean and the sea a beautiful shade of blue.
I found the villa itself, a home from home with all the comforts you expect in our own home. Wireless Internet and a modern music centre helps to break up the day of relaxing. The villa is equip with modern kitchen utilities and appliances, not that I had to cook, there was a fantastic lady who would make breakfast lunch or dinner and this was arranged by the owner of the villa.
The bedrooms were spacious and clean and the decor is well maintained and modern, this was truly a great experience which I would recommend to anyone who like to relax and kit back.

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.
