Perfect for our needs!
We were a group of seven, part of a larger group who come to Jamaica twice a year, working to develop a sustainable health care program for the west-central part of the Island. As a core group, we like to spend a couple of days in Montego Bay, planning the time and activities of the larger group throughout the following week. Arriving on Thursday, and leaving on Saturday morning, One Drop Villa turned out to be the perfect place to do this!
First, Sherri! Throughout our on-line conversations during the rental process, I felt more as if I were communicating with a friend than simply with a “landlord.” As promised, Sherri’s driver and assistant were at the airport when we exited the terminal; they loaded our heavy bags (full of supplies for the mission) and us into two cars for the short trip to the villa. Sherri was right there when we arrived at the villa, with a warm welcome, and we knew right away that we had a new friend in Jamaica! She showed us around the villa, explained the facilities, and introduced us to her chef, Seymour, who was to fix us a delicious Jamaican dinner that evening. When we asked about going out to a restaurant for dinner the following evening, she arranged for a driver. Throughout the visit, Sherri was always available, and has truly become a friend!
Second, the Villa! The villa was perfect for our needs. The four bedrooms were perfect for our group of four couples. Among other things, the large, accommodating living room with large screen TV was perfect for projecting our work schedule on the TV for review and modification (not to mention watching a bit of football). The bedrooms were well-furnished and comfortable, all with en suite bathrooms. (One bedroom even has an outdoor shower!) With supplies that Seymour purchased for us, we made good use of a well-equipped kitchen to prepare our breakfast Friday morning.
Now for the pool and the view! Take a swim, or just sit poolside, with an unobstructed view out over the deep blue of the Caribbean. It doesn’t get much better than that!
And so, Sherri, thank you! Thank you for welcoming us! Thank you for sharing your home with us! Thank you for being our friend! We are pleased that you have become an integral part of our mission to west-central Jamaica. We look forward to seeing you in February and in future years.
What an absolute joy to host this group! I truly truly am filled with happiness they stayed at villa and will also to help support their wonderful mission of great work they do. I, my sir, thank you for your kind words and I’m the one humbled and honored by your group. See you soon again in February!
Montigo tBay on the cheap
It had every thing you needed--if you didn't need much. Was spacious & fairly well located. Property was way past it's prime. Needed much remodeling & refurbishing. . Décor was mid twentieth century garage sale stuff. Owner somewhat difficult to reach. Had very good & reliable chef & good on call transportation--which was needed. Has barking dogs--particularly @ night. Reasonably priced for size & occupancy if you want a bit less quality
Can’t make everyone happy I guess! Decor is their opinion and they have a right to it. Villa was redone inside and out 5 years ago when bought. Not everyone writes a review,but i prefer the written ones to speak volumes of me and villa. Everyones taste is different. I answered every text within 10 minutes and I am also on property at all times to help with everything. I just enjoy my guests and want them to have a great vacation. I believe this to be more of the fact you guys wanted free transport the whole time at villa. However, my headline says what I provide. All in all, i still enjoyed having them at villa and again, cant make everyone happy, but i give 100 percent to everyone. I love what I do and my reviews show it. I also cant help neighborhood dogs barking too and thats exaggerated quite a bit. Thank you
My friends and I visited for a few days and it was just the relaxation we needed. The house was very spacious and the scenery was absolutely beautiful. Sherri was a great host and can’t wait to visit again.
John and his friends were a treasure from start to finish. I am looking forward to next visit and I’m glad they had a great time. That’s what it’s all about!
One drop villa is a great place to stay
Home was very nice big and comfortable Sherri is a great host
Thank you Kelli! It was very nice having your group at villa and I’m glad you all enjoyed your stay here. Come back anytime!
A week of total bliss with beloved friends
We went to Jamaica for my husband's 40th birthday. A group of friends and I surprised him at the airport as he thought he was going away for work, what a surprise! it was 9 of us so I rented Sherri's fabulous villa! it was exactly what I was hoping for. Every rooms are apart from each other and has it's own bathroom, which gives everyone intimacy. The kitchen provides everything you need to cook for that many people too. Sherri is always available if you need anything, she really cares about her guests. Whether you need a driver, a guide, or both, she knows people you can rely on. I would go back anytime and totally recommend it!
Thank you Caroline! It was really a pleasure to have this group at villa. I really did enjoy helping them out and I think their time went by too fast! They did have a great time here and absolutely lived in the pool. I hope they make it back here too! Thanks again. Sherri
Serenity and Bliss
Where can I start..Sherri is amazing!!! Me, the hubby and another couple stayed at One Drop Villa for 6 Days. When we arrived she welcomed us and gave us a tour. The villa is HUGE the rooms are in seperate wings of the home! I loved the Master bedroom and the ‘Outdoor shower’ was spectacular!!! The room was huge and very clean! The kitchen was fully equipped with utensils just provide your own food. The POOL was our fav I woke up at 6am just to be in the pool. It overlooks the carribean sea was looks amazing in the morning. You can hear every part of nature and the breeze was warm from high elevation. At night Sherri puts the LED lights on and that was SUPERRRR NICE!!! Like a club in water. We brought along our Bose speaker for some entertainment in the pool area!!! We felt very SAFE as well, it’s a very nice neighborhood but Sherri has 4 amazing dogs and the villa is remote control gated! Sherri loves dogs and when I told her my precious Loyalty (Yorkshire) passed on we both shared tears and hugs. She has memorial tribute for her beloved handsome Baxter in the front yard make sure to pay respects esp if your a dog lover like her. Her dogs are well trained and they are very protective of ‘Sherri’ esp Max. So safety wasn’t an issue we was protected! It was very quiet in the Villa Sherri provides Cable so we watched our UFC (she’s a UFC fan) and basketball along with my fav The ID channel. We washed and dried our stuff before we left. If your looking for the Jamican local feeling I recommend this villa it’s homely and away from the ‘resorts’ but close to evrything in Montego. Her driver ‘Franklin’ gets 3 thumbs up he was amazing. Very reasonable prices and always on time (please tip him he works so hard he deserves it) Do not get in his car with ya trunks or bathing suit wet from the beach (we New Yorkers we barely wet from a beach) as we did and we was really sorry we did, as this is his way of living and we wet his chairs. He quickly forgave us! Another side note keep windows closed when running the air conditioners or it will blow out the compressors. If you want a private pool if you want to overlook the carribean sea in the morn, if you never showered outside try One Drop Villa and my girl Sherri will make your stay memorable. We will return we love you Sherri and You have some friends in New York who will always remember you!!! See you when we return!!!’
Truly spectacular review and group of guests! I thank you so much and it really was my joy and pleasure to have this group at villa. I am very safety conscious for our guests and make sure everyone is always ok. And yes, my property dogs are VERY well trained, but let me point out they never in any way interact with guests as they are separately fenced and housed. Except you are right Melinda about Max! He’s my 24/7 bodyguard. Being originally from Connecticut, I look forward to visiting my friends in New York City! Thanks again!!
This property is located only 10 minutes away from the airport, 2 minutes away from the police station, and 5 minutes away from major shopping centers. There are restaurants inside the shopping center to chose from, and there is also a grocery store to shop for anything you might need. The house is only 5 minutes away from the world famous margaritaville, located on the hip strip. Right next to margaritaville is Doctors Cave Beach, which is also world famous for its white sand and clear waters. Many shops. restaurants, and activities are located along the hip strip, which is only 5 minutes away from the house.
