Everything was as stated in the villa description, such a beautiful, safe area. I have a 5 year old who loved it, every morning he ate his breakfast on the veranda and could run about outside without worrying. There were great facilities in the villa and everything was close to reach. The property was very clean. When we arrived the Villa smelt fresh & clean with clean linen on the beds! A Nice clean bathroom to wash off after the long flight from england and a clean spacious kitchen to make a quick something to eat. Sharon is very lovely & friendly, as it was my first time travelling to Jamaica she told me everything i needed to know and ensured i was ok with all the details. With any enquiry she got back to me ASAP! I would recommend this property a 1000 times and more! I have already booked to come back! Such a nice, Secure & friendly area. Also very close to Ochi! Thanks so much Sharon for all your help! Cant wait to come back! Love Hollie & Shenice. x

Or from the private decking area reached by steps down the cliff face… Magnifique The Villa was very clean and modern at that. It felt like a home from home with all its creature comforts i.e. strong wifi signal, air conditioning great bar & kitchen area. It even has internal mesh doors so no unwanted mosquito bites in the middle of the night. Not forgetting the wonderful sea breeze.. The manager Sade, was very informative, knowledgable & professional who answered all our questions and even sorted out a personal taxi service for our party. Yet upmost privacy was given. The pool area was fantastic very clean and at only 5ft at the deep end is very safe. Not forgetting the chef Godfrey, what a delightful cheery person. He definitely cooks up a storm. His food is fantastic, very colourful and tastes better than it looks… Unbelievable!! Thumbs up to him. Getting into town takes minutes courtesy of the driver. A fantastic beach is only a few minutes down the road & the nightlife is fantastic. I have already recommended this villa to friends and relatives. Once again a big thank you to the hostess for making our stay so memorable. We will DEFINITELY be returning… sooner than later.

The villa was very easy to find, it was in a beautiful setting, and perfect for relaxation. I occupied the guest suite which had everything for my convenience. The property was clean and wll maintained. The service was fantastic, the staff made you feel welcomed, and the food excellent (yum, yum) The journey into Ocho Rios is very easy as there are numerous taxis and busses into the town. I was aware that there were attractions and restaurants nearby, but I was happy just having lazy days beside the pool, jacuzzi and leasurly walks down to the beach which is only two or three minutes walk away. I would defenitely recommend this property to a friend. I came back to the UK totally refreshed, and can't wait for the next trip.
