Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Jamaica - Palm Trees

Best value for the money in the area, spacious rooms and plenty of veranda space

Palm Trees is an imposing hillside villa/guest house set in its own grounds on the gated Anchor Estate on Jamaica’s South Coast. It is about 200 feet above sea level and 400 yards from the beach. The views are amazing and there is normally a relaxing breeze. All the rooms have high ‘cathedral ceilings’ and fans. The pool is very private as it is within the villa. Every guest has loved Palm Trees and many guests say they will return.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • pets not allowed
  • smoking allowed

About Bernard and Daisy Skan

In 1999 I, Bernard an Englishman met Daisy who was born in Jamaica. We were married in 2000 and came to Jamaica in 2004 when we fist saw Palm Trees. We decided to buy and complete the building.In 2009 we doubled the size of the villa to enable us to be on site to maintain the pool, fix any little problems that may occur and to generally maintain and keep the place clean. Daisy is an excellent cook and housekeeper and I am fairly competent at DIY, plumbing, electrical repairs, building and gardening.

Bernard and Daisy Skan purchased this villa in 2004

Why Bernard and Daisy Skan chose Jamaica

Palm Trees was the best choice we could have made

  • 5 of 5

We were recommended to stay at Palm Trees by some friends of ours who had spent a month there last year.

We were immediately impressed by Daisy and Bernard the villa owners who made us feel most welcome. We arrived at 6pm and did not feel like going out to buy food to cook. So Daisy cooked us an amazing meal of fish, rice and peas and salad. The master bedroom was huge and because all the rooms in the villa had cathedral ceilings we found we did not need to use the air con as the ceiling fans we all we needed. The massive patio area, only accessible from within the villa

Contained the full sized swimming pool, the waters of which were crystal clear. The view from the villa over the Caribbean sea was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. The only downside to the villa was that we had to leave and return to London but we will return.

Paradise realized!

  • 5 of 5

Nestled in the hills overlooking the ocean, Palm Trees villa is a beautiful respite. It has lovely gardens and is very open and spacious. If you are tired of crowded resorts and beaches overrun with people, this is the place for you. The villa itself is clean, space and very well maintained.

We stayed at the villa with some good friends and had a wonderful stay. In the morning we were greeted by birdsong and fresh sea air. After a day exploring the islands treasures - YS Falls, Negril, treasure beach - it was the icing on the cake to come back and watch the sunset over the Caribbean Sea from the villa balcony or take a dip in the pool. The villa is close to a couple of local beaches which, other than locals who are friendly and do their own thing enjoying the sea, its basically like you having the beach to yourself.

Bernard and Daisy were the most gracious and welcoming hosts. When we arrived the kitchen was stocked with basics like water, butter, etc. and Daisy cooked us a lovely dinner and offered to cook during our stay. They also had great recommendations and even rang ahead to ask the owners of a local bar/ restaurant - blue water - to take care of us and they did!

We will definitely be going back for our next holiday and bring more family and friends!

Bernard and Daisy, thanks so much for a great time! Warmly, Nick, Delicia, Meghan, Taji and Melvin.

Can't wait to return! Thanks for a lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We came to Palm Trees with our family for a month in Feb/March and could not have loved it more!! My husband and I have been to the island several times before but finally decided to bring our four girls to the island we fell in love with. Selecting this villa based on referral was the best decision we could have ever made as both myself my husband and our four girls quickly fell in love with the villa and it's owners Daisy and Bernard. They were very accommodating to our every need and loved and treated our girls like they were their own. Our main reason for choosing this villa was the location, space, pool (which our girls made VERY good use of) and of course view, which is far more amazing than the pictures. We plan to return every year as our girls are home schooled so this actually becomes an adventurous part of our school curriculum! The added bonus of Daisy cooking and doing laundry and Bernard's constant attention to the pool truly makes it feel as though you are in a resort! We miss u guys and can't wait to return! Thanks again for a lovely holiday!! Love, Dave, Leah, Julie, Janelle, Jocelyn, and Jillian Chamberlain

Welcome to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

For anyone looking at Palm Trees in Whitehouse Jamaica as a vacation destination....WELCOME TO PARADISE!!!!!

The pictures you see on this web site are exactly what it is. The view of the ocean is absolutely spectacular! Daisy and Bernard are the property owners and they are really hoping to make a profitable business for themselves and believe me when I say that they will do their best to make your stay a memorable one. Daisy is an amazing cook specialising in Jamaican cuisine. (I highly recommend having her prepare all your meals) Bernard will help you with directions as he is well versed about the local happenings. The property is immaculately clean, the local market an experience you will never forget, and the Red Stripe beer just as good as any favourite you have. Don’t be afraid to tell them your likes and dislikes because they want you to be so satisfied that you can’t wait to book again next year. Tabby James and family, Ontario, Canada Christmas 2013

Local Amenities and Activities

Car Hire is recommended as there are many interesting places to visit with in a reasonable distance

Anchor Estate has it's own private beaches. Close by is the Sandals European Spa resort. Just over a mile from the villa is the centre of Whitehouse which has a super market, chemist, a busy market especially on Saturdays and a fish market. Travelling a bit further afield is Black River, the county town of St Elizabeth where the Black River Safari takes you up the river. You will see crocodiles and lots of bird life and Mangrove swamps. Also in St Elizabeth is YS Falls, Bamboo Avenue and Appleton Estate. Floyds Pelican Bar is worth a visit as is Jack Spratt's and Jake's Place in Treasure Beach.
