Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a wonderful place to stay with a big group of people. We had 7 adults and 4 kids (3 and under) on our trip. The house was just as pictured. Nice, big rooms, fun entertainment with the game room, pool, beach, board games and dvd player. We also really enjoyed the complimentary hammocks, kayaks, and paddleboards. The staff there are top-notch. So friendly, nice and courteous. Marva, the cook is FANTASTIC! She makes amazing meals and is so sweet. Janelle did a wonderful job cleaning and lending an extra hand and was also so sweet to our young kiddos. Robert was also great and works hard. Jacqui, the owner, was very responsive throughout the whole booking process and made sure we had great transportation and a nice stay. It did rain a lot during our stay so we didn't get the crystal blue water/ more mucky from the hills above but you can take a small little kayak ride past the dock and see crystal clear water and reefs--very cool!

Note- we went to nearby Glistening Waters for an activity where you are supposed to sea the water light up from micro-organisms (it's only supposed to happen in 3 places in the world). Please don't waste your money...maybe somedays it lights up more but it didn't glow at all for us...so it was a huge waste of money...luckily the kids were excited to be on a boat...I don't recommend it though. We also did an excursion to the nearby blue hole. We had a BLAST! Unfortunately, again due to rain it was more of a brown hole from the mud from the mountains running down into it but it didn't ruin the fun it was super cool and when it is actually blue (from the pictures we saw, it would be incredible).

Overall, I would highly recommend staying here!

Great home, wonderful staff!!!

  • 4 of 5

Villa needs some repairs but I believe the Owners are doing this in the near future. The staff would do anything for you and are very accommodating to allergies, request, wants or needs! They are truly a gem to the Villa. Robert is a hard-working man! Marva is an amazing cook and Janelle keeps everything clean.

Upon arrival there was no Wi-Fi, no cable or TV and the stereo didn’t work. So eight adults were put into entertaining each other for the first 4-5 days. Internet has been down in the area and I realize the owners or the staff cannot control that. It would’ve been nice to have some sort of back up like the radio working. We all had our speakers with music but with no Wi-Fi, no way to play it. Villa is a bit secluded so I was suggest your own form of transportation. Go to Rio Bueno and check out the lobster bowl what a great find! Meet the artist Mr. Joe.

Air-conditioning in the master bedroom cold enough to release the humidity out of the room but not enough to sleep pleasantly and this may be remedied during upcoming renovations it was also hard for four different bedrooms to have a warm shower.

All in all the home is laid out for each person to have their own privacy if needed and also to entertain as a large group. It was a great stay and I commend the staff for that! The owners stopped by and introduced themselves which was nice! Jacqui told us about the history and there are also albums in the sitting room to see the progress of the Villa.

The beach is nice for walking and collecting shells and it is great to watch the different barges come into the pier. The kayaks and water boards are a great addition and it is nice to have some entertainment next-door happening from the river rafting.

Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Kaye, thank you for your input we appreciate your feedback. As we do not live there, this is one of the ways that we are able to find out what works for the guest and what doesn’t. I only wish that you had mentioned the hot water, air conditioning and stereo problems when we visited on your first weekend. As you have said the internet/WiFi is an on going problem and unfortunately beyond our control. The air conditioners were all serviced the week before you arrived and I was led to believe that it was a setting that had been changed and all was ok when the right setting was input. My apologies if this was not the case. The hot water was a surprise as we have just installed a brand new solar system along with a timer to switch to electricity if the temperature drops below a certain level. Clearly from what you have said there is a malfunction and we will have to get the company back out to deal with the situation as it is all under warranty. The stereo again was not mentioned and I would have rectified it immediately had I known. There is no cable tv in our area so we have to use a satellite dish. Jamaica is on the outer bands of the US feed. As a result in inclement weather we loose service. Again beyond our control, it is all that is available to us. I try with all clients to make sure that they have my number so that if there are any issues I can try to help in the shortest possible time. Our aim is for you to have the best vacation possible. Thank you for choosing Sleepy Shallows.

Wonderful, perfect stay for our family!

  • 5 of 5

When we saw the pictures of Sleepy Shallows online, and read about the wonderful experience of others, we knew it would be a perfect place for our family. We were three adult couples, and four children between the ages of 4 and 8. We wanted to be Oceanfront, to have a pool, and to have an air-conditioned space for us all. This wonderful Villa gave us everything we wanted and much, much more! We are not used to being cared for as wonderfully as we were by the staff at Sleepy Shallows. Marva is a fabulous cook and a wonderful, sweet person, always eager to provide us whatever we needed, whenever we needed it. Robert went above and beyond any expectation. He was always working hard, cleaning up, helping to serve and clean up after dinner, and fantastic with the children. He would comfort them if they were having a tantrum, he would provide activities for them, and overall much love was shared. He built a fabulous bonfire on the beach on Christmas night and we had our dinner on the sand on the beach, all set up and beautifully done. The house was always kept neat and clean by Christine, and laundry was done for us and beds were made. This was such a treat! We also enjoyed meeting the Hendersons, who were welcoming and kind and very helpful when the children had a variety of little ailments that came up. The driver Andrew was also incredibly wonderful. He drove us to a number of places with great skill and friendliness. He always showed us lots of Jamaica with explanations. We felt totally protected and cared for while we were there. The security at night, specifically Moses, was also a very reassuring part of the experience. We were seeking a week all together where we could really relax. All the adults are working people, and this was perfect for us. Thank you Jacqii Henderson, Marva, Robert, Christine, Andrew, and Moses for contributing to a wonderful family reunion week for us all. Do you think I can recommend this anymore highly? Wherever you are, have a wonderful visit to Sleepy Shallows! Lois Goodman 12/20/17 - 12/27/17.

Sleepy Shallows was perfect for us!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to this villa as a family of 9 with a 3 year old. Andrew our driver was prompt courteous and very informative on our drive from the airport!

After being greeted by the welcoming house staff we toured the property , pictures are true ! This is a safe private area that the 3 year old could run around and be a child ! Robert was very attentive to our every need ( even before we knew we needed it)

Marva is an amazing cook and ran out to the store for us on a daily basis , even grabbed the fisherman out of the sea for fresh lobster and snapper!

Kristine kept the villa clean daily then did our personal laundry on the last day! I can’t say enough about them! Hated to leave!

There are a lot of things to do there without ever leaving the property but if you do Andrew is the man to take you ! Great vacation !

11 out of 10!

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect! Every picture was exactly as shown. The villa is gorgeous and each room is private and well appointed. There are also a lot of areas to hang out in, either alone, with someone or with a group. The staff - Marva, Robert, Christine and the security were extraordinary! Needs were attended to before we could even think of them. We were well looked after and very secure. The area is also quiet, a little beach action from tours some days beside us but we enjoyed it. I loved my time there. Soon Come Sleepy Shallows, soon come...

AMAZING STAFF!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from Sleepy Shallows and we had a wonderful time. The staff was amazing!!! Robert is a true gem, a rare find. Before we enjoyed Marva's delicious meals, each night we'd go around the table and say what our best part of the trip was... my 12 year old twin boys both said several times, that the best time for them was getting to know Robert!!! They really enjoyed him and they saw the true meaning of work, hard work!!! From sun up to sun down, he never sat down, he made sure everyone had what they needed, maintained the pool, the grounds, set the table for each meal, cleaned up after everyone, etc..... He really treats the property as if it's his own and his dedication shows! The property didn't have any wood for bonfires in the evening, and he knew how much my boys wanted a bonfire, so he walked around the beach with his wheel barrow and gathered sticks and branches and made a wonderful bonfire for us!!! Marva was a joy to have around and we enjoyed her singing in the kitchen as she cooked the delicious meals. Christine did our laundry at the end of the week and always made sure the house was clean. Moses, the security guard, kept us safe at night!! The staff at Sleepy Shallows truly deserves to be acknowledged and compensated WELL for all their hard work. Andrew the driver was also amazing! He was not only our driver but our tour guide as he would point out various places along our rides and also made sure we visited the best spots in Jamaica at the uncrowded times!

I agree with the previous reviewer about a few things. The ocean water wasn't very clear or blue as it is in the pictures. Andrew the driver suggested we visit Doctors Cave Beach which is nearby the airport. I'm so glad we did. The water there was absolutely incredible. Crystal clear!!!!! We spent most of the day there and the food there was so good!! Yummy! We also visited The Blue Hole, an absolute MUST if you visit Jamaica!! We had so much fun!

The boys enjoyed playing pool in the game room, however without any air conditioning in that room, it became very uncomfortable. An air conditioner unit in that room would definitely make it more enjoyable.

Jacqui the owner was always very responsive from start to finish. We'd definitely recommend Sleepy Shallows! If you decide to stay there, PLEASE be sure to tip the amazing staff! They deserve it!!!!! We miss them already.
