I live in Siesta Key, Florida and spend months at a time at 'One Rhythm Villa' in Jamaica. Doing this, I feel good and at home...I am grateful..I always Love it when family and friends find their way for a visit...
I especially favor this location because it is private, quiet and on the seaside.I Love the Sea. When I first came upon this area, it was an instant knowing for me that I would one day be at home here in Jamaica. That was almost 15 years ago. When I first saw the Sea, it was full of so many different shades of turquoise that I could not look away.... so I just sat in gratitude of the beauty surrounding me & took it all in.
One Rhythm Villa opens up to the outside gardens and sitting areas, it is like having a flower garden inside. There is a gentle sea breeze that flows through the villa most all day. Jamaica gives me the feeling that I am always in Love.....I am blessed!

Just wanted to write as I have been thinking about your home and community in Jamaica constantly since returning in the spring. The time spent there with Annette and Johnny will forever be in our hearts. Those two people are some of the best that we have ever had the pleasure of spending time with . Their gifts of connection and intuition in being with new people are really incredible. I can't imagine that there would be anyone who could fill Annettes's shoes as far as providing the level of insight, kind support and hospitality that she does.
Brian and I are dreaming about when we can come back! Trelawny is a most special community and the way of life and perspective of the folks that we have spent time with there have been an inspiration to us since we have come back. The trip really highlighted the blessings and shortcomings of our own life and community in such a powerful way. I only wish that we could travel back to Jamaica more often...
I can't wait to send an email with some dates that we would love to come back to your home. The next time we will bring some friends. I can't wait to share this community and your home with some friends or family.
Hope you are well. Thanks again for creating a portal to such a lovely community and culture for us. I could have never imagined that a vacation could have such an impact on our life!

Karen, just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our 2nd stay at One Rhythm, and our 3rd year in Duncan’s Bay!!!
Your villa is so beautiful and peaceful... a perfect vacation for us.... the relaxation we needed!!!!
Ms Annette made our time there like the pictures in a storybook. She took care of us 24 hours a day. She anticipated our needs. Her meals were so awesome that we took pictures of every one! Even when the seas were rough she managed to find fish and lobster for us to enjoy. She played and taught us Jamaican Dominoes and strategies at night... Fun!!! Even when she was off, she always went into town and procured what we would need for the day. She swept the beach every morning. She wanted to make sure her guests had a clean beach. Of course we cried when we had to leave her!
Ralston, a local fisherman, took my husband out fishing and to check his traps....what an awesome experience!!! He also caught fish, which Ms Annette cooked for us.
Andrew was also great! He was very dependable and took us from the airport and back, and also treated us to an excursion into the hills so that we could see the real Jamaica, and then to the Bend Down Market…. A must see!
We went snorkeling twice with Mashtoq, and experienced the local reggae music at Leroy’s on both Saturday nights. Ms Annette went with us to Leroy's on our last night, which was especially nice.
The people there really respect you, Karen, and are appreciative all you have done for their community.
We felt very special to have stayed in your villa..... the BEST in Duncan’s Bay!
Thank you again for allowing us to rent your beautiful, peaceful villa, the most restful place in the world......
I am sure we will return again... it is our special place in Jamaica.
From beginning to end, One Rhythm and Miss Annette were wonderful, just the winter getaway we needed for two couples. Our welcoming dinner was delicious local foods, which continued meal after meal from Miss Annette's kitchen - fresh fish, lobster, banana fritters, fresh vegetables and fruit. Don't miss trips to the Duncans' grocery store and Falmouth market with Miss Annette. We rented a car at the airport to explore the island, and Miss Annette always had good suggestions on when and where to go - we were the first rafts down the Martha Brae thanks to her tip - a leisurely jungle float with parrots chattering in the trees. Nice estate tour and high tea at Good Hope Estate, only about 25 minutes from One Rhythm - we had the place to ourselves while most tourists did the zip line or 4x4 tour. We drove over the Cockpit Country to visit the Appleton Rum Factory on the south side - a crazy drive, but a true glimpse of the real Jamaica - small towns, jungle valleys, windy roads, children in smartly pressed uniforms walking to school. Skip the GPS - the same friendly rural taxi driver gave us directions when we got lost, and thirty minutes later when we looped back around on another rutted lane - "Hey mon, I thought I told you to go to Jackson Town - you must like driving in the bush, mon!" Left side driving was pretty exciting - just take it slow and watch for goats and oncoming trucks.
The beach, steps away, was mostly deserted, perfect for long walks and swims in warm shallows, then back to watch the magnificent frigate birds catch morsels as the local fishermen cleaned the morning's catch outside Leroy's, the local beach bar. Don't miss the fried chicken there, with a bottle of Red Stripe. The small neighborhood behind the beach has only a couple dozen homes, with narrow gravel lanes - we birded one morning and saw parrotlets, olive chested parakeets, and vervain hummingbirds, the world's second smallest. Miss Annette's saffron finches flock to the backyard each morning just for her (and you!). Go snorkeling with Mushtaq - reef fish & more!
Tree frogs serenaded us at night, with the warm breeze shuffling the palm branches. The friendliness and generosity of everyone we met, from shopkeepers to tour guides, and every stranger along the street or beach - we felt welcomed at every turn, guests instead of mere tourists. As Tony, a local who sold crafts outside Leroy's said with a big smile and a thumb rub to me, "Hey mon, it's about respect, mon!"
This was our 4th trip to Duncan's Bay, and our 3rd consecutive year's stay at One Rhythm. There is no other place in the world for us to have the restful, peaceful vacation that we always need. We spent our days on a beach that was steps away from the villa, and some days we were almost the only ones on the entire beach. Ms Annette is probably the main reason we keep coming back to One Rhythm. She is awesome in every way! She anticipates our needs, even remembering that we love the local fish and lobster for dinner each night. She procured lobster in advance of our arrival, just to make sure that we would have it if the seas were rough for the fishermen. She even had crab for us... a real delicacy! We went snorkeling, which Ms Annette arranged for us, and also took her out to celebrate her birthday. Johnny, the driver, was also great. He took us to the Bend Down Market... a must see! And he also took us anywhere else we wanted to go. We stayed an extra day again this year so that we could go to Leroy's Bar two times. The local band only plays there on Saturday nights, and it is so much fun! We visited the local caves this year, a first for us. Mostly we enjoyed spending time on the beach, resting, and eating Ms Annette's wonderful meals...... could not pay for that kind of food in any restaurant!! We have gotten to know many of the local people who live and work in Duncan's Bay. They remember us from year to year. Karen's villa is so beautifully decorated, and the local people really respect her, because she has done so much for their community. We feel very safe staying in her villa because of that respect that she has. We plan to return to Duncan's Bay, but only if we can stay at One Rhythm!!
This was Our first Year in Duncan's and One Rhythm Villa was Awesome, Ms. Annette had everything under control from the time we arrived till our departing day and personally I will miss her..... She is an Awesome cook and she help with gifts for friends and family, we also attended Church with her and Friends, we were Welcomed into there lives and the way they lived here in Jamaica....Karen you have an Awesome Staff and also Johnny our Driver was also a Great Friend also we attended his Local Bar and the Food was Great.....We walked to town one day and it was Great but wish it had a side walk so you didn't have to dodge Cars....LOL
I can only Say that This Villa "One Rhythm " and the Staff are No.1 and I would Recommend it to OUR Family and Friends...... God Bless
Our third year in a row! That should speak for itself! But to add more about why...we simply love Ms. Annette, we love this house and we love the location! Ms. Annette is the ultimate caregiver and an amazing cook. She sources food like nobody else and her meals are balanced and delicious! Being repeat "friends" she knows what we like and always delivers. My husband calls her the President of the Chamber of Commerce because she knows everything about the area and if we ask for anything she's on the phone and sourcing it pronto! In addition we have become friends and have loved getting to know her and her family! We are convinced there is no other location where we can get away from the winter, right into summer, just right into an already comfortable pace with so many familar people and explore the beautiful Jamaican culture and island! Also, we prefer to explore with our own vehicle so we always rent a car. But we have met the delightful driver, Johnny. And Karen the owner has created a beautiful home filled with positive and beautiful decor. We plan on a return visit next year! This is a great and beautiful vacation spot!!!
We had the most amazing vacation at One Rhythm! We go on vacation to relax and regroup from our busy lives. That is exactly what this Villa offers, and more. It began with Johnny Blaze picking us up in Montego Bay. We were instantly comfortable with his warm and charming personality. He was very informative and we talked the whole way on our drive to the villa. He made sure that we knew he was available for any adventures we desired. Upon our arrival at One Rhythm, we were graciously met by Ms Annette. She was fabulous during our week stay. We couldn't of asked for a better host and friend while in Jamaica. Each meal she made us, was different, delicious, healthy, picture worthy and delightful. She was very accommodating to all our needs. She took excellent care of us. We are already planning our return trip next year and adding another week. Can't wait to see our friends again. We highly recommend this villa to all our friends and family!
