I currently reside in the UK and I bought the land and then built the house for somewhere to have small breaks away from time to time with the family.

I decided to rent it out to holiday makers or for events when we were not staying there

CYNTHIA LUSACK purchased this villa in 2008

Why CYNTHIA LUSACK chose Jamaica

I love the villa because it is so spacious and airy,

enough room for you not to be on top of each other

What makes this villa unique

It is close to the beach but not on top of it.

Close enough for you to hear the sound of the waves even sitting on any of the many balconies.

The views from the upstairs balcony is out of this world

Very relaxing and quiet especially for you to sleep well at night but close enough to the center of OCHO RIOS with the hustle and bustle of the shops etc

An amazing 2 week break

  • 5 of 5

After a ten hour flight from the UK the Big White Villa was the perfect place for my getaway. 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.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the big white villa. We were 12 people. 6 couples. The villa was very spacious and comfortable. Great for a big group. The staff was amazing. Kevin the chef cooked the most incredible meals. The location was great for experiencing the north side of the island. Rocky but very quiet and somewhat private beach a short walk down some steps. If you have more than 6 couples it might get too crowded as two of the seven bedrooms share a bathroom. The upper balcony with sea views is an amazing spot to have breakfast and all hang out.

Amazing Christmas at The Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week stay at The Big White Villa with family and friends. It was the best Christmas holiday away from home!

The luxurious and tranquil villa was festively decorated and provided something for everyone: young, seasoned and all ages in between. The modern facilities, wireless internet, Wii gaming system, pool, Jacuzzi, and cable television were all wonderful amenities enjoyed at our home away from home. The Villa offers spectacular seaviews from many vantage points. The gazebo and patios and well manicured garden enhanced our relaxation.

Our accommodation in the apartment nearest the pool was the best! We had our own cooktop, refrigerator, dutch oven, cable television, private bathroom and comfortable king size bed. We could spend time with the family and yet still enjoy our privacy.

With its location in a secured gated community across the street from the Rio Nuevo Battle site Memorial Park and just 10 minutes from Ocho Rios, we were able to enjoy the privacy of our family gathering and the activities that make Ocho Rios world reknown…the World Famous Dunn’s River Falls . As a family, we had the best times snorkeling and sailing on the Cool Runnings Catamaran.

The Staff at the villa were quite welcoming and helped to make our vacation a memorable one. Thanks to Dal and Cynthia for sharing their beautiful Villa with others along with a little bit of Jamaican history. Oh the memories we will have for years to come. We look forward to visiting again soon. Yeah Mon!

A fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa in a fantastic location.The villa has lots of space so can easily accommodate large groups of people without feeling like you are on top of each other!! The villa boasts an impressive 6 bathrooms and a separate loo! The villa is set in its own grounds with a beautiful view of the sea.

The local shops are minutes away with easy access to the main strip where you can access more shops, bars, restaurants and the famous Turtle beach.

The grounds are stunning with a pool perfect for lounging and sunbathing in the day and relaxing with a glass of wine at night!

We had a fantastic time and will definitely be going back soon.

My two weeks stay at The Big White Villa with my family was the best holiday i had in the past 21 years. It was no problem finding the location, all we had to do was to follow the direction advertised. The minute i walked through the door i felt at home, the feeling of love, tranquility, warmth, the smell of a clean and homely environment.

We arrived at the villa around 22:00 and wandered about until the early hours of the morning, just couldn't believe what we were seeing. The biggest shock came when we finally woke up at around 11:00am the following morning, the kids were running from one patio to another yelling for me to come and have a look. It was unbelievable.

Almost everywhere we were in that villa we could see the ocean by day and hear the sound of the waves by night. The entertaiments came in form of games and the large plasma tv screens throughout the villa, the large well kept swimming pool, the jacuzzi and the hot tub - PARADISE within the gates of The Big White Villa.

The facilities were great, everything needed to make a perfect home. I would say the photographs under-estimates what the place really look and feels like. Was it worth the money? every single penny.

I want to take the opportunity to thank Derrick for his courteousness - very quiet and pleasant. Deon you are very good company. Thanks to Cynthia for thinking about others when building this villa; and to anyone who wants a genuine holiday accommodation in the carribbean where you feel at home! think The Big White Villa.

We've already made plans for next year.
