The villa which had a pool area offering views of the ocean and surrounding lush vegetation. It was set up with an indoor outdoor living feel. It felt casual enough to not worry about children touching things or making a mess at all. The staff was wonderful. I will especially say that the villa chef, Ms. Blossom and her assistant Charnette were the most helpful, amazing and accommodating team. We worked closely with them every day to supply a Gluten free, vegan, and child friendly menu as well as traditional for each of the 22 guests in our party. With every meal being absolutely delicious. The villa had a variety of things to do without leaving the grounds.
Most of the bedrooms have ocean views. If you do rent the cottage with the villa you need to know that it is at the very back of the property in a much darker area a distance from the main house. If you are part of a large party it could feel a little disconnected being back there. It does not have ocean views.
This apartment is a real home from home. My partner and I stayed there for two weeks and were sorry to leave.
Booking was simple and the owner, Dulcia, very responsive to emails and super helpful. Key was ready for us on arrival, alongside useful information to help us during the stay; air conditioning was on which we were grateful for. The provision of beach towels was really helpful! Charmaine, who cleaned etc for us every day was fantastic, and well deserved of a tip at the end.
Towels were changed daily and everything was kept very fresh! Nice shower (water quick to heat up), good kitchen with all the equipment (oven, hob, coffee machine, toaster, microwave, fridge/freezer) you need. Lounge was comfortable and there were many TV channels (if you wanted something to watch); news (local/other), documentaries.children's TV and movies.We had a few issues with the WIFI, but Dulcia was quick to try and resolve. The apartment does pick up the WIFI from reception (we discovered) so it wasn't much of an issue.
Great balcony which we had breakfast on every morning. Bed was huge and comfortable. We found with the aircon and fan it was just right temp for sleeping.
Lots of cupboard/drawer space was helpful. The extras...e.g. safe, hairdryer, clothes airer, iron+board were much appreciated. Clearly much thought has gone into this unit!
Pool was well looked after and great for a swim, hardly busy when we were there. The dedictaed loungers for the aprtment were much used but there were others available. We swam in the beach 'pool' every day...the home of quite a few fish and an eel as we discovered while snorkelling. I would recommend bringing beach/wet suit shoes, as there are a few rocks but also these are needed for other excurions such as Dunns River Falls and the Blue Hole. My other half swam out of the beach pool on the calmer days; not to be recommended when the sea is rough as the 'gap' is guarded by rocks.
Security at this complex 24hr and gates are closed overnight, allowing pedestrian access. We ate at Glenn's across the road for both breakfast and dinner, highly recommend this very reasonable and very friendly establishment (they do take away which we had following our arrival early evening). Also had some great jerk chicken at the Jerk Centre just up the road.
We used route taxis to go into town, and would recommend.
Dulcia even sent us Easter bread, cheese and mangoes as a gift as we were there then!
Perfect host with a lovely place!
