The property is very lovely, the rooms are spacious and nice, A/c , hot water. Just as the photo on the website and the property, well, well kept. The pool relaxing, swim at your own leisure. The view of the ocean is breath taking especially when the sun is setting, you just watch it go down. The staff are very polite and friendly, the cook, she can surely cook up a storm for you. You name it and she cook it. How can i forget the golf game, it is off the chain!!! very exciting and challenging. Overall this i a home away from home, very quiet and relaxing and fun filling.

Owner response: Love you guys!
My family, 10 people just returned from our Christmas vacation at Garryowen Villa. It was truly splendid! The view is incredible, it is extremely private, spacious, and immaculately clean. The attentive staff, Miss Betty, Michael, Miss Rose, and Ordain treated us like royalty! We loved the fruit trees, which provided several fruits including delicious limes and lemonade. Phyllis and her sister were extremely helpful and informative prior to our stay. Once at the villa, Phyllis and Gary were very attentive to our needs. The TV in the living room wasn't working, so Phyllis & Gary showed up with a brand new 42inch TV to replace it. The photos of the villa don't really indicate how truly beautiful it is. We will be back! Thank you Phyllis, Gary, and staff...

Dear Phyliss Of course this includes Gary, Micheal, Bisson, Lurlene, Keisha and Odi. Many thanks to you all for giving us all a wonderful and warm welcome which we pleasantly experienced during all of our stay. You offered everything you said you would and more. Because of the way you provided your service this made our stay at the villa and indeed in Jamaica that much more wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for you and you made us feel like we were at home. Our biggest regret of course is that we did not stay longer. We are already missing the cooking, the food, and the hands on care that you charmingly provided. We have told as many people as we can already and you can sense their envy as we excitedly tell them about the wonderful time and experience we had. We are already looking at our next dates to travel, although this might be in Europe, however we know that the temptation to return to Jamaica will be too strong and we will succumb to it perhaps even before the year is out. If we do you can expect a call from us. In the meantime you know that we took some pictures and will happily forward them to you shortly. Regards

Gary Owen property was unexplainable it was a peace of heaven on earth. The villa was very clean, spacious, private, relaxing, and quite. The staff was awesome. We well defenetly be planning on going back in the near future. Andre and Keshia were great at making us feel like we were at home they helped out whenever we needed them they are awesome people very kind hearted and very easy to get along with and grow close to. We spent two weeks at the villa and couldnt have asked for anything more. on the other hand my wedding took place at the villa and everything was perfect, everything i had ever imagined my wedding to be, phyllis and marie were awesome they made my day perfect not only my day but the the two weeks we spent on the property. I give this villa a 10 out of 10 and would recommend this villa to anyone who is ever planning to travel jamaica. I have been to Jamaica plenty of times and never experinced anything like what we had experienced! Keep up the good work =) Lajray & Candice Gordon and the gang.

We look forward to seeing you in the future, in other words (COME BACK TO JAMAICA AND FEEL ALRIGHT :) Big hello to the rest of the gang!
A group of friends and myself took a gamble and booked the Garryowen Villa after speaking many times with Phyliss, Jan 31 to Feb 7th, 2010. We've always stayed at resorts in jamaica but this trip we wanted to expereince something different so we booked with Phylis. We made the best decision ever, we loved the villa. It was sooo beautiful, clean, spacious, relaxing, private. We couldnt have asked for more, the staff (Andre', Keisha) were great they became a part of out group. Andre the groundskeeper was wonderful, what ever we needed he was there to give us we loved it. My friend held her weddingon the grounds as well and it was beautiful. Phylis and her aunt the wedding planer Marie did a great job, the wedding day was soo relaxing we didnt have to worry about a thing but looking beautiful. I would highly recommend this property to anyone...it was the best Jamaican expereince I've have soo far, and I've been to Jamaica 5 times in two years. Three Gold stars from me and the rest of our group.

Owner response: Trudy, it was a pleasure to have met you all and an honor to be able to accommodate you at Garryowen Villa. We look forward to seeing you all again soon. Phyllis.
We've only been home a week and are already trying to figure out when we can come back! This villa is amazing! Spacious, comfortable and very clean. We all seemed to unwind and relax almost instantly. My insomnia completely disappeared here! The pool and the view are breathtaking and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. The day we arrived, we said hello to the staff. However, the day we left, we said goodbye to family. It was a very tearful farewell. Miss Betty and Keisha are so sweet and caring. We looked forward to seeing them every day! Miss Betty's meals were 5 star. We're still craving her chicken pumpkin soup and shrimp curry! Our driver Troy was awesome. He was fun and very knowledgeable of the island. We saw more of Jamaica than we could have ever imagined! Phyllis and Garry, thank you and your staff for a wonderful vacation. We can't wait to come back and see your new project! Many blessings, Carla, Lonnie, Chad and Kathleen

Owner response: Carla, Lonnie, Chad & Kathleen, we are happy to be of service to you and we do look forward to your return some day soon.
My family and I had the most spectacular time at The Hill Top Villa where the ambiance set a mood of warmth and relaxation in obsolute private, peace and quiet. The view there is so magnificent and the accommodation was most sensational. There was a lot to revel to such as the beach, a famost historic cave (The Green Gratto Cave) which is a must see, gulf and much much more. I must say its a definite of us going back there.
