I absolutely loved this house from the moment I walked in . It felt just like home especially because the staff and the owner made our stay one I will never forget. It was my family's first time in Jamaica and it couldn't have been more amazing. The hospitality that we received from the owner and staff is unexplainable. The house speaks for itself. When you walk in your greeted by views that are only seen in travel magazines. The pool deck has this crazy gorgeous view of the ocean and sunset; the top balcony has a view of the mountainside that can be only seen, not explained. At night, when you hang out on the pool deck, the sky is illuminated with stars, if your a star gazer like I am, you will appreciate this very much. You saw nothing but shooting star after shooting star. The house was equipped with everything you need AC, CABLE, WIFI, WASHER, etc.. The house is very well maintained and clean.

The house is in a great location. Literally 15 minutes away from Ocho Rios, where you can find great outdoor activities for everyone in the family like the famous Dunn's River Falls and Mystic Mountain which my family loved!!! It was a great bonding experience for everyone. There are other great fun things to do like the craft markets, Margaritaville and shopping!!! The bars and restaurants are just 5-10 minutes away from the house, there is even a food market, ice cream shop, patty shop that is just 3 minutes away!!

Overall, i HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOOKING GARRYOWEN VILLA. I absolutely loved this house and if your looking for an awesome vacation house, stop looking you found it!!! It has everything you need and the staff is freaking incredible. Plus the owners Gary and Phylis are great and amazing!!!

I never ever write reviews (good or bad), but after the amazing hospitality me and my family received from the owner and the staff I decided I need to share the experience with others who are seeking a great vacation spot.

The staff and the owner were so friendly and nice, and they made me and my family feel extremely comfortable during our stay. The property is gorgeous and extremely well maintained and very clean & comfortable. The house had everything we needed; AC, cable, wifi, washer, etc... The private pool over looks the mountain side and gives you a beautiful view of the beach and the sunset. There are also hammocks set up in the yard for you to just relax in the shade and enjoy the mountain breeze,which me and my wife enjoyed .

The house is 15 minutes away from Dunn's River Falls, Mystic Mountain, and Oche Rios. I suggest visiting all 3, we did and it was AWESOME! We also visited Glistening waters which is about 20-25 minutes away and this place is a must see! The beach is right across the street from the house which is beautiful. Also there is a Jamaican beef patty shop, ice cream shop, and food market literally like 2 minutes away from the house. Also there were plenty of different restaurants and bars within 10-15 minutes of the house.

Bottom line is I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who is looking to vacation in JA, go ahead BOOK GARRYOWEN VILLA. The place has everything you need, and the staff are incredible. They make you feel as if you are among family. And the owners Gary and his wife Philis are fantastic!

From the minute we stepped foot on the property we felt like home! The staff met us as we drove through the gate And waited to help us un load our luggage without any hesitation. Clean and very secure location. Beautiful property and staff. Minutes from the beach and tourist attractions. Will definitely stay again!!!

Well kept, beautiful & exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations at Garyowen Villas far exceeded my expectations. A native of Jamaica who had not been home for 23 years I was totally blown away by the staff's hospitality and sincere concern for each member of my family. The grounds were so very well kept and the peace and serenity I experienced is not something I will soon forget. I am already making plans to return in the summer and for every Spring vacation after that. A special thank you to Consie and Denver who made our stay so unforgettable!

Unfortunately, the occasion for this visit was one of grieving the passing of my beloved father and therefore by expectations was one of total gloom and sadness. Thanks to the wonderful staff and of course the serene environment the time spent there allowed both quiet time for grieving as well as giving me hope for the future. I am therefore delighted to recommend this Villa but further recommend that anyone coming there should prepare for a great experience.

Wonderful family experience

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed at Garryowen over New Years. Phyllis and the staff were incredible. They made us feel like we were part of the family and at home. Immediately when we arrived Denver was cutting down fruit for our young children and explaining all the trees to them. The villa was meticously maintained and very spacious. We had all of our meals at Garryowen eventhough we had another larger villa rented for the rest of our family. The food was great and diverse. There are excellent views and a very large pool area. I highly recommend Garryowen.

Car: recommended

Garryowen Villa is about 1 hour drive from Montego Bay Airport and 20 minutes from Ocho Rios, New Island Village/Marguerita Ville, shopping, restaurants/bars, movies, Dunns River Falls and much more. We are a few minutes walk to the local and private beaches and gulf coarse. The Villa is nestled on top of the beautiful Cardiff Hall Estates Hills and over look the Caribbean Sea. Sit back, relax and enjoy the view from the privacy of your pool deck while the staff cater to you. Garryowen Villa is very unique because of it's location and settings, as it is close enough to the excitement yet still in a private, tranquil location.
