Guestbook comments from the manager

If there was ever a place that I would spend time over & over again for a nice get away, it would most definitely have to be at Villa Serenity. The view is by far breathtaking, & the accommodations well exceed's itself. I give two thumbs up to Villa Serenity, it feels like a Home away from Home...

I was pleasantly surprised

  • 4 of 5

I wanted a peaceful stay, away from the constant activity in heavily concentrated tourist facilities. I was able to get in without any delays and the place was very clean and the views are absolutely great. On my next visit, I will do a better job with getting the groceries I will need. I did walk down to the street once....never thought of walking back up.

I will recommend this property to any of my friends that visit Ocho Rios. I had dinner at the Sand Castle and as usual, it was outstanding! This will be my home away from home from now on!

We had a great time staying in Serenity Villa in Ocho Rios!

  • 4 of 5

We want to thank Clive and his staff for making our 2 week stay so enjoyable. Dalton picked us up from Montego Bay airport and he was on time. The journey to Ocho Rios was pleasant.

The villa was lovely and as described in the details. It was ideal for the four of us ( my husband and I and our 2 adult children). When we arrived we enjoyed a lovely, much needed meal prepared by the House keeper Mrs Kelly.

The views from both verandas was breath taking and we spent quite a bit of our time out there. Bruce the Caretaker was very helpful and could be contacted if we had any difficulties. Clive is very approachable and did his best to make our stay comfortable,

You access the villa via a steep incline which is fine going downhill but more challenging going up hill, so if you do not plan to rent a car then we suggest you use a route taxi to get up the hill. But check the price! On the issue of travel, if you are confident driving in Jamaica then we would suggest hiring a car, as it would make traveling around much easier and possibly more economical.

The House keeper comes every 2 days and will cook for you if you provide the food and let her know what you would like. We found that very helpful. The best supermarkets are Champion and progressive Stores. Beware the General Store is quite expensive. If you get chance check out the farmers market for fresh fruit and veg.

Ocho Rios is very lively and it comes alive a night with music and dancing into the wee small hours, so if you are into that it is easy to go down to join in. If not you might find it a little difficult to sleep. The beaches are beautiful and the villa is in easy reach of many of the main attractions like Dunn's River Falls. We had a lovely meal at Miss T's, so we would also recommend going there. The villa represents good value for money and home from home. I almost forgot to mention the lovely pool which is easy to access from the villa. I made a point of making sure I used it almost every day. Lovely!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here at the Villa Serenity in June 2017. What more could I say, Clive was very prompt and accommodating with our needs upon arrival. The unit was in impeccable condition with great views of Ocho Rios from the upstairs and downstairs patios. I would highly recommend this to my friends and colleagues. You will not be disappointed!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is more spacious than I had imagined, great place for the cost. The Views of Ocho Rios from there are unbeatable. The Villa is very clean, very spacious and well equipped with the essentials of a home. The house keeper and property manager are great and very helpful. I will definitely stay again.

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is great. There is plenty of space, as there is both an upstairs and a downstairs, so if you are coming with other people, privacy and space are not an issue. The communal areas like the living room and dining room are spacious as well. But the real star, is the upstairs balcony. I wanted to live out there! You can see all of Ochi, cruise ships and the water in the daytime, and at night, the lights and vibe of the city are in full bloom. I swear this has got to be the best view I've ever seen. There is another balcony downstairs if you prefer, as well.

The community itself is nice and you have a private pool for the residents in this phase, so it is never too crowded. There is a gym, security, and laundry on property, so these are all helpful, and you feel safe. There are locks on all the doors and a safe to keep valuables as well. Most people are neighborly, so we made some friends around who were helpful.

There are many stores in town for food shopping and souvenirs. The hill to enter and exit the property is very steep, but it's not a bad walk into town. There is always so much action in Ochi, it's fun to just be in the mix. There are several clubs so close that you can hear the music on the balcony at night, so if you are into hanging out, you can easily walk or have a cheap cab ride to nightlife.

Mrs. Brown, the housekeeper, is kind and helpful. She will also cook for you if you want. Mr. Bruce, the house manager, is around the property daily and is easy to find if you need something. Clive, the owner, is a really awesome guy. He appreciates and respects his tenants, and responds to any issues immediately. He is truly invested in making sure that his guests have a pleasant stay. My friend and I were really concerned about booking outside of a resort because we heard horror stories about people's cards being fraudulently charged, or folks walking into places that were so filthy that guests had to find another place to stay immediately. When you are booking in an unfamiliar city, it can be very daunting. Clive took the time to have phone conversations with us prior to our arrival to answer all of our questions and to make sure we were comfortable. He answered our emails and texts promptly, and was never annoyed by our inquiries.

We stayed for a week and this place definitely became home. I wish I was there right now! Do yourself a favor and book locally so you can really experience Jamaica off the resort. This is an ideal rental!

Affordable villa overlooking the beautiful bay of Ocho Rios. The same Blue Mountains, white sandy beaches & lush tropical foliage that attracted Columbus almost 5 hundred years ago make Jamaica the ideal vacation paradise today. You will have sole use of your own private villa located within the grounds of Columbus Heights. For those visitors who are interested in sight seeing there is so much to see & do in Ocho Rios, it would take more than one vacation to cover it all. Take in the atmosphere and embrace the ambience, spend an hour or 2 in the ocean or a day on it! Go snorkelling, diving, sailing, cruising or fishing. Eat fresh food and home-grown produce. Immerse yourself in the culture & soak up the sunshine at the near by Island Village beach. The choice is endless. Local near by attractions include the famous Dunns River Falls, Dolphin Cove (max.5 min drive away). Prospect Plantation, Wassi Art, Shaw Park Gardens & Turtle Park Play Grounds. Combined with some Duty Free Shopping.

Other Activities: Dunn River Falls, Dolphin Cove , Shaw Park Gardens, Island Village, The all new Hard Rock Cafe, Wassi Art, duty-free shopping, boat rides.
