Guestbook comments from the owner

Probably the best terrace view of the sea from the wonderful porch in the entire estate! Clean, spacious villa with as usual a most dedicated staff and a great cook. It was only a 3-minute walk down to the beach, Highly recommended if you need a three-bedroom villa, though it is also available for less than that. We shall be back.

Sheer Relaxation

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Seagull for 9 days and had a fantastic time. Seagull is a wonderful property at Silver Sands with easy access to the beach, the bar, the convenience store and other property amenities. The tropical breezes kept the house very comfortable throughout the day. Although, when we were at the house, we spent almost all our time on the front porch taking in the sweeping views of the ocean from the hammock we brought with us. Do bring insect repellent because when the wind dies down in the evening, the mosquitoes come out! For that reason, we appreciated the air conditioning in the bedrooms for sleeping at night. Cheryl was very accommodating in terms of mealtimes, menu selections and accommodating our picky 4-year old. Every meal was different and delicious and included lots of local favorites. Molly went above and beyond in taking care of the home and seeing to our needs. Both Cheryl and Molly are a wealth of knowledge should you want to travel around the island, hire a driver, go to the market, find fresh fish or just learn more about Jamaica and its culture. Most of all Cheryl and Molly are exceptionally kind, caring and generous and made us feel truly cared for. Trudie was a wonderful hostess and generously answered all our questions as we prepared for our trip. We would definitely return to Silver Sands and would love the chance to stay at Seagull again!

Best house in Silver Sands

  • 5 out of 5
I’ve been coming to Silver Sands for almost 20 years. In that time, I have stayed at several different homes…until I found Seagull Cottage. Now, we only stay at Seagull. Let me tell you why. The owner of the house is meticulous in how she takes care of the home. It feels like a real home at the beach, rather than a hotel or random vacation rental. Seagull is in a prime location in the Silver Sands property. The views from the front veranda are beautiful and sweeping, with a perfect sea breeze all day. The house is spacious and we love the updates we see every year, the turquoise tile in the renovated bathroom, the new local Jamaican art work on the walls, and the additions to the book collection, which are perfect beach reads. Now, the best parts of course, are the ladies who work there, Cheryl and Molly. They are generous, sweet and kind and wonderful with our two young daughters. They cook like a dream and we are picky with our food and have dietary restrictions. I also tend to visit for my birthday, and they never fails to make it feel extra special with their great cooking, and lovely birthday cake. There are other newer, bigger homes at Silver Sands, but I wouldn’t stay anywhere else now that I have found Seagull. If you are looking for a truly relaxing vacation, comfortable, welcoming beach cottage with amazing views – then you will love Seagull.

Tranquil Cottage in Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our time at Seagull. The first thing I'd to say is that the pictures have to be updated. The house is just lovely. Recently painted (loved the colors white & turquise family). The furniture has been updated as well. The house was well stocked with everything needed.

Views: Awesome!!! You can see the sunrise and the sunset from the veranda. I loved sitting out there with my red strip in hand and watching the fishermen go out to sea. Watching the colors come alive in the ocean. Watching and listending to the birds (doctor birds were my favorite). I even enjoyed the little lizards that joined me on occassion. Great breeze off the ocean. The veranda is really nicely decorated as well as the rest of the house. Loved the pictures, especially the ones of the locals of Silver Sands. And least I forget the views to the oceans from the two front bedrooms. Wow!!!

Location: The steps to the beach are to your right when you leave the property. 2 minute walk to the beach. The steps could be a challenge but you could consider renting a golf cart or taking the roaad down to the beach - about a six minute walk. There was a security guard that sat not to far away from the house every night. I felt very safe.

Service: Ms. Sheryl is a real gem. She took great care of us. She was a great cook. I really missed her this week :-) All you have to do is let her know what you want. Very pleasant. Oh and Sheryl, I forgot my pimento leaf. You know I was sick when I realized it. Next year!!! You must have her make you pork chops and I loved her banana bread.

Why the 5 Stars: This is a great budget friendly place that has been recently updated. It is really nice with lovely views. The beds were comfortable and the house was kept emmaculate. I would highly recommend this place to friends and family. The owner was great to work with. Location!!! I absolutely love Silver Sands. You have to go and experience it for yourself.

Recommendations: Have a menu in mind when you get there so that Sheryl can assist you in your purchases. Come with a open mind and show respect for your host and you will have a great time.

Thank you again for the use of your villa. I truly enjoyed my time there.
