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 Ocho Rios

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

Wonderful staff! Enormous amounts of room!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Big White Villa. Kevin was a wonderful chef. Sam & Leticia were so warm and helpful. The rooms were large and gave us all enough room to relax. I would recommend this rental to anyone.

Beautiful home at a great location would become perfect with some maintenance and cleaning

  • 3 of 5

We had a great vacation in Jamaica. It’s a lovely place. The people are friendly and helpful. The drive down from Montego Bay to the Big White Villa was smooth. Our ride was through Travel Jamaica Tours and Errol Bowen who drove us down entertained us and kept us laughing all the way. He is awesome. He and Errol Williams did all our chauffeuring during our stay. They were a pleasure to work with.

The staff at the Big White Villa were friendly and resourceful. The property manager worked with us to prestock food and supplies before our arrival. She was present along with the staff when we arrived. We love Kevin, our Chef! He whipped up delicious meals and accommodated our preferences and diet restrictions cheerfully. He went out of his way to help with other needs in the house as well. A shout out to Sam as well. He was a quiet gentle presence who unfailingly stepped up as needed.

The house itself is a spacious and airy place that easily accommodated our group of 14. The location is beautiful. The landscaping is lush and tropical. We enjoyed the pool. The sights and sounds of the ocean are close by. The neighborhood is quiet and secure. All our excursions and shopping or dining trips were a short drive away.

A little more attention to maintenance and housekeeping would make the Big White Villa near perfect. But for them the small annoyances would have been absent. As such it falls short of the ‘luxury’ tag. Nevertheless all in all we enjoyed our Jamaica experience. The food. The sights. And most of all the friendly folk!!

Great location, beautiful view, friendly staff ... a little dated, and some maintenance issues

  • 3 of 5

We had some difficulty finding the Villa, the address provided did not appear on Google map, the property is marketed as Ocho Rios (which is largely in St. Ann) but it is actually located just outside of Ocho Rios in St. Mary. My other guests had similar experiences with finding the Villa.

The actual accommodations were adequate, we had 5 bedrooms in the main house and 2 bedrooms accessible from outside by the pool area. They were good size rooms with enough amenities to be comfortable.

We met the maintenance person, the house keeper, private chef and manager on the first day. Everyone was friendly and happy to assist in making our vacation enjoyable. The view from the upstairs balcony was amazing. The beach (while quite stony and challenging to access via a steep stair) was generally okay.

The property is not air-conditioned in the common areas, each bedroom has an air-condition unit, however, we had to keep the doors open to maintain a reasonable temperature in the living room, kitchen, and upstairs lounge areas. Having the doors open also meant mosquitoes which were a bit annoying.

There were a few maintenance issues (refrigerator beeped 24 hrs per day because the Freezer did not work, blinds in master bath were broken and could not close, door on shower was broken etc. etc.) but nothing that was a fatal flaw.

The chef did an amazing job and cooked some really delicious local meals for us, however, I think the house cleaning had a bit to be desired and the dust did a number on my sinuses.

The Villa is also located near a public park area and there was loud music which played every night during our four night stay.

Honestly, we had a good time in Jamaica, we visited Dunn's river falls, the town in Ocho Rios, enjoyed local fruits, and other amenities. The Villa met our needs for somewhere to sleep (as we were out for most of the days) however, I wouldn't describe it as "luxurious".

We had a group of 12, there was ample space for everyone and no one really complained. It is a great villa in a great location, it just needs a few tweaks in the maintenance area and I would give it at least 4 stars.

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!

The Villa is located in a secured gated community just 10 minutes from the town of Ocho Rios, at the historical Rio Nuevo battle site and memmorial park. The place where the final battle between the British and Spanish forces was fought in 1658.

Other famous attractions in the area, include the Dunns River Fall where you can swim in the river, find caves behind falls and mini-whirlpools. Ten minutes away is Dolphin Cove, where you can swim with dolphins.

Close by is the Mystic Mountain which is located on rain forest terrain 700 feet above sea level and features a roller coaster ride and an aerial tramway canopy tour.

At The Prospect Plantation Tour you will discover how a plantation site works, and enjoy open-aired carriage rides, horseback and camel rides; There is also a wonderful butterfly aviary and you can even feed the ostriches.

This is just to name a few.
