My computer was giving me trouble so I booked the villa over the phone. The owner Mr Appleton was very professional. I’ve been to Jamaica before and stayed in hotels but had never rented a private villa. I decided to come out of my comfort zone and rent the villa for 5 nights. My only regret is that I didn’t spend my entire holiday there. The villa is in a beautiful location i.e. right next to Riu Hotel Ochi Rios Mammee Bay. The entrance to the exclusive estate is on the same road as Dunn’s River Fall, Dolphin Cove, a Horse Riding establishment and many more, allowing me to see many attractions whilst cutting down on costs. The Knutsford express depot is also close by so we would readily get around the island for a fraction of the cost.
When my party of family and friends arrived we were greeted by the residential manager Chris and Ms Pet the housekeeper. When Chris showed us around the villa, huge smiles radiated from our faces. It was beautiful!! The rooms were clean, grounds planted with tropical and fruit trees. My teenage sons were happy and could not wait to jump into the pool. I new from that point that our holiday had begun.
We had lunch and sometimes dinner at Blu Bamboo Restaurant which is located on Mammee Bay beach which is about 5 minutes walk from the villa.
Chris was on call day and night to meet our needs and did so without any reservations. He suggested places of interest, local eateries, advised the best mode of transport for our trips and introduced us to a nearby ice cream shop which we visited everyday.
Unlike the hotel the villa allowed us to spend time together but also allowed us to have and enjoy our own space whilst soaking up real Jamaican ‘vibes’.
We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful villa and cannot wait to return.
