Don't know where to start...This is an amazing place!!! We spent Christmas 2010 here and it was truely spectacular. The Hart's home is more breathtaking then the pictures. It had a very spiritual quality to it with many of the rooms open to the air and one with nature. The house is located on top of a hillside amongst the lush canopy of all the amazing vegetation. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have been on. The staff (cook, waiter/gardener, housekeeper, and driver) took really great care of us. The food was always fresh and meals were a highlight of our days. We ate homemade jam each morning that we affectionately called "morning ketchup" made from fresh papaya. The jerk chicken was to die for as was all othe other meals, desserts prepared for us. We went horseback riding through the citrus orchards, toured old ruins from a once sugarcane plantation on the property, and went tubing on the river that went through the property as well. The property was unspoiled and we felt that we had stepped back in time. We had lots of privacy. What was really cool was that when we went to the beach (which was a 12 minute ride away), we had a house of our own right at the waters' edge to hang out in. The beach area was shaded with trees, had bathrooms, an upper terrace with big plush cushions to lay out on, and a bedroom if we wanted to get out of the son for awhile. Oh, did I mention the picnic lunches they packed for us with an ice chest filled in tow? We also had a nice man at the beach house to care for us while we were there. We went into town a few times on a comfy, airconditioned bus with lots of room for our family. Our driver took us into Ochos Rios one day so we could see Dunns Falls and do a little shopping. Our driver would have taken us anywhere in Jamaica we wanted tp go. If you want a truely memorable experience, this is the place for you. We will never forget our precious time here. We had a blast. At no time did we ever feel unsafe, and the Jamaician people are very kind and friendly. You will be totally taken care of. We had 2 teenage boys and my "not so old" parents. There is plenty to do for all age groups. Unfortunately, I am leaving tons of details out. If I attempted to include everything, I would have to write a book. Thanks again for everything Tammy, Blaise, and Boys!!
