Home away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place and made such a relaxing break. What made it so enjoyable was the kindness and friendliness of the Host. Nothing was too much trouble and they really made the holiday special. I wouldn't hesitate to go back or to recommend it to others.

Beautiful, relaxing, quite safe and secure.

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful well manicured and maintained. The house decor is nice gives you a beach house vibe. Julie & Rupert the owners are such wonderful ppl. They made me my husband and son feel very comfortable like we where right at home. The house is in a nice community very quite and near all amenities and the view is breath taking. I dont sleep very well in a bed other then my own, but the beds where amazingly comfortable i slept like a baby. I like that fact that it was accommodating for kids there where board games provided. Which gave me an indoor activity to do with my son. Bonus was the second full bathroom over all i loved my stay and would definitely stay here again.

Peace of mind up the hill

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights at the villa and we had such a nice time. It is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Just down the hill is one of the nicest public beaches we've seen on our trip. It's free and you don't get too hassled. There are supermarkets, ATM and restaurants just a few blocks away. However you'll have to drive a couple of miles to eat something other than fast food. The apartment was very clean and equipped with all the facilities you need, even cable TV. Rupert took care of us and left baskets of fruit on our porch in the morning. We were a couple but the place is big enough for a small family (2 bathrooms) if you don't mind sleeping in the same room.

I recommend!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculately clean, spacious and well lit. Decorations, fixtures & fittings (indoor & outdoor) was to a very high standard and very well maintained. Furnishings was also to a very high standard. All kitchen utensil were available (including a juicer) and in the right place. Large ensuite bathroom plus a smaller shower room meant no queues!

I loved everything about the property and could not find fault with anything.

The booking process was extremely efficient and responses to queries were received in a couple of hours (max, as most were addressed immediately). The team at the property were exceptional. No request was too big or too small.

As the title indicates, it really is a hidden gem. I did not hire a vehicle but would strongly recommend future visitors do so.

Sincere appreciation and best wishes to the team for contributing to a thoroughly exceptional time in Jamaica.
