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...

Serenity Villa -Simply the BEST!!!!
My recent stay at the Serenity Villa was amazing. The place is well kept and clean. Owner Clive was the best. Kept in touch from day one of my inquiry. He arranged drivers as well as a personal chef, Miss Brown. The view from the balcony leaves you breathless. Will definitely recommend and stay there again on my next visit. Thanks to the crew.
Instead of going to a resort in Jamaica for our vacation this year my girlfriend suggested my daughter and I try Home Away instead. I am so glad we did! After looking at the pictures of the Serenity Villa, I knew this was the place. The reviews were great, so I made contact with Clive with a few questions who responded promptly, so we decided to book.
We had ample time to make payments, and Clive was always available to answer any questions we had.
On our arrival, we were met by Dalton, our driver. During our stay, my daughter and I would come to know and trust him to show us the real Jamaica and make sure we were safe.
Bruce, the caretaker met us at the villa with the key and showed us around the place. We also met Miss Brown, our cook and housekeeper. During our stay, she showed me how to make several dishes-ackee & saltfish, callaloo ,and festival. Everything was fabulous, and she took wonderful care of us and the villa.
The villa was well maintained, the beds comfortable, and there was cable tv and wifi. But the best part of the villa were the outdoor patios-one on each floor. Because you are at the top of the hill, the views of Ochi and the sea were spectacular! I loved sitting out, drinking my morning coffee and watching the city come to life or sipping my rum and Ting! in the evening and seeing the lights and hearing the faint sound of music coming from the town. If I close my eyes I can still see it so clearly! There is also a very nice pool area to use as well.
The villa is close to many attractions-Dunns River Falls and other outdoor activities if that is your style, shopping at the Taj Mahal or relaxing at the beach at Bamboo Blu or the Bamboo Beach club.
We got to meet Clive towards the end of our stay and he was as charming in person as in his emails and on the phone.
Since our return, my daughter and I have recommended Serenity Villa to all our friends here. We also want to go back to see more of the real Jamaica and reconnect with the new friends we have made during our stay.
Another great stay
Another great stay at Villa Serenity thanks to Clive, Bruce and most especially Ms. Brown. This is our second time staying at the villa and again we have no complaints. Location, safety and convenience plus all the amenities of home make it a great stay! Word to the wise, definitely take advantage of having a home cooked meal! Ms. Brown is the best!! I will definitely recommend staying at this condo to anyone. Thanks again and hopefully we will see you all again next year!!!
Annual Jamaica Excursion - 2016
We truly enjoyed our stay at villa serenity as always. My sisters and I travel to Jamaica once a year. This is the third year staying at the Columbus Heights Villa Serenity. Every year gets better and better. The Villa Serenity is always equipped all working necessities required. Clive is an Awesome owner and ensures our stay is fantastic. We can always count on Clive to locate great additional Villas for the entire group that are in close proximity to each other. When we stay in Columbus Heights Villa Serenity, it feels better than being at home. The accommodation, view, surrounding and Jamaica family always ensure of a great time! This type of accommodation and services keeps us coming back to the Villa Serenity each and every year.
Soon Come Next Year!
Christine Falls & Sisters
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Serenity Villa at Sancastle Condominiums. Everything was perfect and The owner Clive customer service was impressive! We met the caregivers on arrival, Mrs. Kelly & Bruce who answered all our questions and checked on us everyday while we were there.To me the best part of my vacation was ocean view from the balcony - it was beautiful. The unit was modern and very clean. We felt safe with security at the main gate, the property was green, lush and well maintained, lots of flowers, which was pretty! There is no need for a car, The villa is in walking distance to many restaurant and bars. P Dunns River & Dolphin Encounter are all close by.
I would definitely recommend to family and friends, in fact we hope to be back September 2017!
Thank you Clive and your team for making our stay so memorable, we cannot wait to get back to Serenity Villa!
All the best,
Great view and conveniently located
The highlight was sitting on the balcony at any time of day or night and looking out over the town, such a great view/
Close to town and all the major attractions. Walk back up the hill was very steep so we drove down and parked in the lower car park just by the gate making the return journey much easier. After the first few days of having a driver pick us up and take us around, it was nice to get the hire car so we dould take ourselves around.
Great pool, shared but most of the time we had it to ourselves,
Fantastic to have Mrs Brown to clean and cook, we shopped in the local market but did not know how to cook it, coming home to a prepared meal was fantastic.
Having air conditioning in the bedrooms was a key benefit, so hard to sleep without it.
Defintely recomment this place, we flew into Montego bay and Clive arranged for a driver to pick us up, very nice after a long flight.
Activity and Interests
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.
